I imagine that it is only a matter of time until the plastic cover on the new Mac Pro is offered by 3rd parties in other colors, and maybe a R2D2 version.  I'm looking forward to a red version, or maybe one machined out of copper billet. What are some other ideas for covers?
Pretty sure his post was a sarcastic jab at stock market analysts, Sheldon.
They just got a new government, and the new government is dredging the great barrier reef out of the way so that they can export more coal.  I think that they were better off with high apple prices, tbh.My father in law donated $300k to get the new government in, which is weird from a US perspective where we are so limited on political donations.   Canada and Australia are more right wing than the US in certain ways.
Probably import duties, shipping, insurance.http://customs.gov.au/site/page5663.aspAlso, Apple probably pays money to buy futures contracts to hedge against currency fluctuations, which has to also be added to the price in Australia. 
They sold it in 2007.
I want to play iPhone 5 Pandora via a outboard D/A converter.  Would it work to output hdmi via the Apple digital AV cable, and then use a device that splits out the hdmi audio onto a spdif cable?   Is there a better way than that?  Some kind of cable that has lightning on one end, and TOSLink and USB on the other end?  Or a USB to spdif converter?
The lawsuit wouldn't have anything to do with patents, it would have to do with a member of Apple's BoD using confidential information inappropriately (i.e. to help Google develop android).
Because if they sued Schmidt, it would be paid by Apple's BoD insurance, and would only hurt Apple (higher insurance costs from then on).  They did go after Google, and are continuing to.The people to sue wouldn't be Apple, it would be a class action suit by the shareholders way back then, and I have no idea why that hasn't happened.http://gizmodo.com/5941817/what-really-made-steve-jobs-so-angry-about-google
They took confidential Apple BoD information, because the Google CEO was on the Apple BoD, and used it to create a competing product.  That isn't just stealing, that is a betrayal of Apple shareholders by an Apple director.
At the peak, Nortel actually had a bigger R&D budget ($6 Billion) than Apple currently has.
