    All of these leaks really ruin these events. Not nearly as exciting as things used to be. Watching the live blogs I haven't seen much of anything yet that we weren't really expecting. 64 bit A7 is cool, but certainly not "WOW!"

    I'm ecstatic! It's really exciting reading the live blog updates.

    Stop reading the posts on the run up then! Simples!

    People will ALWAYS try to find things out, and leak info!

    I don't know anymore, but at least I would have been surprised if we didn't already know all about the new 5C and the new 5S color, and this fingerprint sensor that I suppose we'll see soon. All the leaks just ruin it.

    I'm still watching, hoping for something big on the 5S, but man, the 5C is pretty lame.. Basically a plastic iPhone 5

    If this is directed at me, then I'm pretty sure the 56x faster was for comparing the iPhone 5S to the iPhone 2G

    They said 40x faster than the original iPhone. Or at least that's what engadget typed on the live blog.

    I think that graph shows it being 40x faster than the original iPhone.

    I think that the OP meant that due to all of the leaks online (even the 64 bit A7 chip) that this keynote was no surprise at all. Almost everything was leaked with the exception of the M7 sensor (I didn't read about that online).

    With so many leaks it is near impossible to be "wowed" anymore by Apple. Unless they build their own factory and keep everything in-house the public will never be "surprised" again.

    Lets face it. 90% of what they have shown today we (people who follow iPhone news) already expected.

    I just noticed the picture of the iPhone 5S home button is conveniently shadowed..

    Anyway, iPhone 5C is dull, and the 5S is a decent upgrade so far. Obviously it's not going to be mind blowing.

    But man the 5C..

    I think people are plenty happy. It's just that no one is surprised anymore. These events used to be awesome. Now it's just "I saw this 3 months ago online." :cool:

    My excitement level depends totally on the off contract price.
