Mindi told me to tell you that you live in a gorgeous part of the country. She just spent a few days up there and went kayaking to Aialik Glacier.
Holy crap -- is this her second visit here? I conversed with her back in May I believe when she said she had been here for a brief visit to see her brother. She mentioned kayaking and glaciers from that visit as well, but different glacier. The one you mention is about a 90 minute drive from my house, followed by some kayaking out of Seward to get to. We were talking a couple weeks ago about taking a group of scouts down that way next summer.

Anyhow, one visit to Alaska without telling me is understandable. Twice is unforgivable. She must be afraid of me.

I have the 6 plus and I'm out on this update.
I've done every major update, OP to the 3, 3 to 4, 4 to 5, 5 to 6 and by the time that two years is up my phone is out of memory, slow, can't hold a charge and the new update is too hard to pass up.

Well my 6 plus has plenty of memory, is still very fast and holds a charge all day. After this keynote I just don't see any changes worth making me want to upgrade. Maybe the 7s I will have to.

What were you expecting? At this stage there's not really any big changes phones can make anymore.
The only thing I would say that Samsung has that we don't that I would actually care about is the ability to use their "pay" at any credit card machine. Not just ones that are set up.

A few things I knew were not coming but wanted..

-Higher resolution screens
-Amoled
-Notification light (I love and use this ALL the time on Androids) but I know this will probably never come to iPhones
-USB C (will never come now with lightning earpods in the mix)

A few minor disappointments....

-Headphone jack RIP
-Another adapter to misplace
-Space Gray RIP. My favorite color!
