A 5K Mac? Heck, that's nothing. I remember when there was a 128K Mac.
I think they should go for 1.0mm thicker and use that 0.8mm for a bigger battery. No one would notice 1mm increase without measuring it.
Doesn't bother me one bit. Karma.
I'd never sit in a Ford with Sync and the engine running.
Well, think of it this way... Apple can use the money for what is allowed, which would free up money for dividends that would otherwise be used for those things that are allowed.

"secure cloud-hosted network." Yeah, you know, like the one Target and Home Depot used.   So once one server is hacked they get 50 million card numbers. Whereas they would have to hack 50 million separate iPhones to get the same reward, which so far as been unhackable.   Smart move.
