All the Android fans love charts like these. Why? It gives them bragging rights! 

I was talking with +Joshua Topolsky before the event and noted that the geeks and early adopters are gonna be disappointed by Apple's announcements today. That's true. I'm definitely bored. Even though I'm going to buy one of these iPhones and I'm not switching away from the Apple ecosystem, because of Airplay and because app developers continue building better and more mind-blowing apps for Apple (almost all the apps I was pitched this week at Techcrunch Disrupt were on iPhones). 

That said, everyone in line noted that their "normal" friends and family are looking forward to seeing this device and buying it. My brother-in-law, who has a cheap Android phone, has been saving up to get this iPhone. He's not alone.

That said, I'm not going to wait in line for this one. It's not revolutionary. It is worth the extra few hundred dollars for me to upgrade to, though.

Apple isn't pushing the industry the way it has at past events, though. That does open a hole for Google to jump through big time next year as it brings +Project Glass  and other innovative devices to market.

Android and Google has the bleeding edge bragging rights now. Apple, though, will clean up the profits again with this device. Which means Apple can invest in revolutionary stuff for the future.

The thing is, is Tim Cook the guy to lead a revolution?
