You can use any Qi wireless charging pad, no need to get the one from apple.

I'm actually shocked they didn't try to screw people by making it not compatible with the regular standard.

Probably didn't make sense to develop their own tech.

I love watching how each company steals each other's ideas, from Samsung 8 with no buttons to apple with no buttons.
 Any chance samsung will remove the headphone jack? (I thing that would be really stupid of them.)

 And what's the X all about? Is it like the SE which is a replica of a model already out?

IINM Its normal for the up and down...
But ya, it fell right after they saw the unimpressive showing...
If they had something truly innovative, i believe it would have climbed right away...
Your belief is totally off..
The stock literally takes a dip the second the phone is announced every single year, and it stays down for a while, it only starts going back up when strong pre-order numbers start surfacing in news reports.

The drop has nothing to do with being "unimpressed" with the release, it has everything to do with "buy the rumor sell the news".

The stock kept on cracking all time highs the last few months solely because of iPhone X rumors, the rumors ended today, and the stock took a breather, that's all.

Not really.
Developing proprietary tech --> forcing everybody to use it --> huge demand --> collect royalties from 3rd party manufacturers, is how they usually roll.

Losing faith in Apple. It's possible they didn't manage to develop their own charging tech. 

Not running to buy the new 8/X. Afraid it won't work well. They are bowing down to pressure to release new models with no innovation.

If only they'd improve the MacBook Air line, it's about time.

A joke is like a frog...

When you dissect it, it dies.

Get it? Just like a frog dies when you dissect it, so does a joke when you explain it. Basically, the frog is used as an analogy, to help people understand that jokes shouldn't be explained, because the joke will die, or more specifically, become unfunny. So, just like when a frog dies when you dissect it, so does a joke when you dissect, or explain it.

Does Sprint not offer monthly plans to BUY phones anymore? On their site all I see are options to lease or buy full price out right.
