    I would buy a folding apple phone. New phones are all too big (Fablet). Too big to pit it in your shirt pocket.

    Apple should seriously reduce the cost of it's chargers. And they should put more than one charger in the box. Also the charger Apple makes should be more durable.

    I think the flip phone iPhone concept is an excellent one. I could see it attracting the smaller phone market. It's good to have a smaller phone, they just fit in your pocket a lot easier. Plus the inside screen is protected.

    I had a LG eEnV that flipped horizontally. It was awesome in its concept and design. So yeah it had full keyboard, wide screen on the inside, and touch screen on the outside when shut.

    Here's a link to CNET's review of it back in Nov. 27, 2006. 10 years ago. https://www.cnet.com/products/lg-env/review/

    I would be ok if the AirPods never get released. I don't find them that attractive, especially for their price.

    I am for improving maps, but I don't like the idea of drones knowing my every move. Mapping Shopping centers would be good, but I don't want drones inside malls all the time.

    I feel like the concept of using drones to impose maps is actually an veiled excuse to get more surveillance drones into the sky. This will allow government more access to on the street information. This is the main reason for the push to use drones, in my opinion.

    Satellites are actually a science fiction concept that doesn't exist in reality. GPS, and what is called as satellite service uses towers, not orbiting technological objects. There is technology in the sky, but these are what many think of when they think of as satellites.

    What is known as satellite photography is actually done by high altitude aircrafts.
