    Space Gray. It will be hard to resist a product with that color and name. Might have to rethink my plan to go gold. Or maybe upgrade both my iPhone and my wife's.

    Has anyone else noticed that Apple refers to its new device as the 5s, not the 5S. And the 5c, not 5C.

    It is just a different stylization of the name, and only the name of the device... A stylization is a different way of writing something to make it look more catchy, or cool, ... you get the idea =)

    From Wikipedia: "Stylized" may mean the adoption of any style in any context, and in American English is often used for the typographic style of names, as in "AT&T" is also stylized as "ATT" and "AT&T."

    So, "iPhone 5S" is stylized as "iPhone 5s."

    Here are some other examples:
    • Lady Gaga's upcoming album is legally named "Artpop", but stylized as "ARTPOP"
    • The band Nine Inch Nails' logo features a stylized version of their abbreviated name "NIN," to wit: Nine_Inch_Nails_logo.svg.png
    • The soft drink Tab is stylized as TaB

    Space Gray is a contradiction in terms. Space is the area between bodies of matter, i.e., all sources of light, Therefore, space is actually black.

    I'm sure that Apple decided to go with "space gray" simply because "gray" would sound too boring in a marketing sense.

    Lol yes. It certainly sounds interesting. I personally like graphite - accurate and cool sounding.

    New phone as 5s and not 5S so as not to be read as "55", as to 5c, just to be unifrom for new models :)

    The whole 5s and 5S thing is driving me insane.

    Apple, it's 5S, not 5s.

    Don't say anything unless you know. Go to Apple.com

    What? Did Steve Jobs die and leave you in charge? Besides, you don't even want a car.
