Dave!I've been fighting a pinched nerve in my neck ever since returning from San Francisco. I have no idea what I did to make it happen, but over the past week it's gone from "uncomfortable" to "agonizing." Today I couldn't even get Migraine-Strength Excedrin to touch it, which made for an uncomfortable day. And inconvenient, given the amount of work I have to get caught up on.

Not the best Saturday on record, but I've had worse.

While trying to find a comfortable position to lay down (which doesn't exist), I was using my iPhone to peruse the Apple rumor sites. Everybody's favorite fruit-themed computer company has a "special event" this coming Tuesday, and sites are abuzz with what Apple might have up their sleeve...

Apple Event Invitation

The rumor mill suggests new low-cost plastic iPhones (in colors!) and a new iPhone 5S which will come in a gold/champaign color for the first time (in addition to black and white models) plus have a fingerprint reader for privacy/security purposes. It's also speculated that we'll get an updated look at iOS7 along with a release date.

Well, okay then.

I should probably be a lot more excited about what's going to happen on Tuesday than I actually am. Part of that is because my upgrade cycle won't allow me to get a new iPhone until the iPhone 6 arrives... and it's partly because my neck and head are killing me.

But mostly because Apple has gone with random polka dots for their new theming? Dots. Really, Apple?

    Pinched nerves are so painful. I hope you feel better soon.

    I am getting excited for the new iPhone. Not because I am tried of my 4S. I love my 4S. I just hate the carrier it’s on (Sprint) and can’t wait until the end of January when I can get 4 of the 5 phones (including mine) off contract and get new phones and move to another carrier.

    As for the features of the new 5S and 5C, I think speed would be a nice improvement over the 4S I have. And many camera improvements, although I’m very happy with my camera now.

    Hoping the color dots will translate into something more exciting.

    The dots, like previous designs have meaning. The white dots symbolize the new home button on the 5s which will have a silver ring around it where the fingerprint scanner is.

    Ugggh, pinched nerves in the neck are the WORST! I am guessing you’re better now which is awesome.
