iPhone 6

If I'm anything, I'm NOT an Apple fanboi.

And the Android aficionados are giving Apple heck over the iPhone 6.

But still, there's a lot of innovation in the iPhone 6.

It has 128 gigabytes of flash memory. One Hundred and Twenty Eight Gigabytes! Enough for my daughter's pictures. Nice job.

Apple finally implemented NFC tap to pay. But in Apple's manner, it's not just the run of the mill tap to pay. Apple tokenized the entire transaction and used their TouchID as a second factor. Mechanically in the store it's pretty much the same as Google Wallet but under the covers it's much cleaner. Nice job.

And it has just been discovered that the iPhone 6 has hardware h.265 encoders for use by FaceTime. This will reduce the bandwidth required for over the air video by 50% while not reducing quality. Nice job.

I'm still not going to buy one.
