    No doubt that this will revolutionize mathematics as we know it.

    Yes, because MacRumors decided to name the fifth generation iPhone "4S" :rolleyes:

    Where's 3G and 3GS? Also, Apple named it, not MacRumors.

    *Whoosh*

    More like MacRumors decided to refer to the 6th iPhone as iPhone 5.

    Whether one refers to it as iPhone 5 or iPhone 6 there is always one group who feels the need to recount the reasons the other side is "wrong"

    There is no right or wrong answer to this question until Apple releases a name
    I for one, hope they drop the numbering altogether as with the iPad

    In calling it iPhone 5, everyone understands it is the next generation iPhone
    Not sure why everyone gets hung up on numbers anyway

    If Apple itself referred to the fifth gen as a "4s" than what makes you think they have any sort of policy about matching generation number to model name?

    This horse has been dead and beaten for a while.

    And for that matter an iPhone 1, iPhone 2, or iPhone 3. There were no such iPhones given those names.

    The iPhone 4 is the only one to have its model name match its generation. And I suspect it will remain the only one.

    Aw shucks. Was expecting a rant on the removal of the down-vote button.

    I wanna see what's on that line to the left of 0.

    And until the product is released, everything listed after "4S" belongs on the imaginary number-line. Product naming is always a complex problem.
