As lighting gets cheaper to use people tend to use more of it. The percentage of resources that people spend towards lighting has tended to remain constant throughout time. Now that we have LED bulbs people are installing more of them and using them for decoration, not just for lighting. Plus it's even easier than ever to stick a strip of LED lights under the kitchen cabinets where in the past it was a lot more hassle.

The person said they used Photoshop Express to crop photos. Sounds like a basic task and not on Photoshop itself.

Personally I wouldn't want a Surface just because I don't want the hassle of dealing with Windows. I do that twice a year to run some tax software and the rest of the time I spend in operating systems that are less stressful to me. If others like using the Surface then good for them.

Many of the people that have been buying the smaller Apple phones have been quiet while Apple has been hearing from people who "need" larger phones for years now. You go onto the forums and most of the talk has been people wanting larger screens while very few people speak up about being happy with the current selection. That has to have some impact at Apple though I'm sure that they also do their own research into the market.

Hopefully the people who have been quiet up to now will start to voice their opinion about liking the smaller screens and in the next release we'll get a comparable small screen iPhone.

Unfortunately the C seems to stand for Cheap. Plastic case, slower processor, and less RAM. I've got the 5s and don't really want anything bigger but don't want to give up performance either. I like being able to use the phone with one hand and don't like the solution Apple is providing. I was hoping that they would go from a 3x full screen display to a 2x resolution display in one handed mode with it anchored on a corner instead of shifting everything down halfway.

Or the graphics designer could just optimize the graphics so that they are the smallest possible size in the first place. Then they are the fastest for everyone. Designers, like programmers, are usually used to having the fastest computers and connections so they forget about people with slower computers and connections.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.
