    Ha! Somehow I figured that you could not hold out past opening day! Apple is absolutely right about its installed base.

    I’m probably a bit too rational. I went over to the Valley Fair store yesterday and picked up a 6 Plus — i didn’t buy it or anything like that — just picked it up to find out whether it feels a ginormous as it looks. It’s lighter and thinner than I thought. It isn’t the brick that it might have been. They did a great job.

    But I do agree with Gruber. The 6 Plus is now so large that it is another category of product that happens to have cellular service in it. The product is so compelling that it ought to succeed on its own, but I still kinda feel that I need a model that is a bit more cell phone and a bit less tablet. (I’ve already got an iPad.)

    But its a fascinating experiment: What will this initial cohort of early adopters do after trying the ginormous one out? Will they learn to love it or will they retreat back to the cellphone sized 6 (or 5, for that matter)? I kinda think they’ll keep it. It really depends on routine daily use.

    So I will be interested in both:

    What you will do.

    What you will think (the rational Adam).

    Love that you got the plus! Looking forward to hearing your experience. I’m absolutely loving my 6 plus. It fits in all of my various pants pockets without issue. I’ve used it in every scenario that I’ve used my old iPhones without problems. Walking the dog and using my plus? No problem! Seriously, I can’t use it one handed in all but a very few situations but that’s ok: the ui, the beautiful screen, the wonderful size and battery life, and camera are worth it to me. I hope it works out for you too.

    Such a beautiful device. :)

    Hey Adam, don’t put down the camera! Its the star of the show! Did you see this?

    You own that technology now! Be proud!

    That phone is the choice of the true geek. Remember when geeks proudly showed off technology instead of covering it up? Gamers still do. The build their rigs by hand, put plexiglass on the side, and light the interior. Its fashionable now to cover up the technology. Jony Ive is the leader but I HATE that!

    There’s a few mid-engine Lambos and Ferraris that put plexiglass above the engine so that everyone can see, hear, and smell the work of art that it is. It’s a small nod to that great but almost lost aesthetic. So is your new phone.
