Review of prognostications - was I right?

My prognostication report card:  It looks like I was pretty much right, aside from when iPhones would ship.  It will not go to my head.

I think predicting possible problems or supposed problems might be something to think about next time...

Here were my detailed predictions and some comments:
  • MacBook Air [Was wrong about this one.  Just wrong.  They have a retina 5K imac instead?]
    • Bump to retina.  If not now, in 2014.
  • New iPhone 4.7" and 5.5" [Aside from the ship date, I was right]
    • with a better camera, both with TouchID [Very true]
    • NFC [Yes]
    • some new sensors that aren't rumored
      • We have a 2nd motion sensor for low power use, and an barometer.
    • a sideways mode for some iphone built-in apps that is more like iPad [True for iPhone 6 Plus]
    • higher resolution screens [Yes]
    • Shipping by mid-October [ok this was wrong - they shipped in a couple weeks with 10 million sold the first weekend]
  • iWatch [I think I was right on the money]
    • with more fashion than I can imagine
    • fewer sensors than imagined - definitely no glucose monitoring this time around
    • coming out in early 2015
    • comes with more HealthKit discussion
  • Services: [I think I was right]
    • Definitely mobile payments, and NFC seems very likely, rolling out with many major retailers across the US, tied to TouchID
