    That package is going to be massive!  Currently, DirectTV pays $1 Billion a year.  If Google and Apple get into it- you're looking at doubling that or more I'd guess.   And for what it's worth- only 2 million subscribe to it @ $250/yr- so a return of $500mil (or a loss of $500mil)- mobile, bragging and advertising excluded of course.
For those of you getting excited- did you just bypass this little snippet in the article?    I'm all for dealing with the content providers.  If nothing else, just to scare one or two of the cable providers to nut up and sign on with them.
Innovate like being the first laptop to use PCIe for the flash HD?  Or the first to delivery 12 hours of battery life?  All while weighing under 3 pounds.   The Mac Pro is obviously innovative- let's not try to argue that.   Thats all from the only product (and one announced product) that they released so far this year... so 100% of their products have been innovative- not copying- in 2013.  Now shoo fly, don't bother me
I showed my wife and and she wants champagne too- she got excited.  She's hispanic (but more like a coconut- brown on the outside but white in the middle).  
I'm with you. Front left pocket is my phone, front right are keys, back right is wallet. What else would you have? Your a guy.,, it's not like we have baby wipes, mascara, and tampons. Maybe he does?
After thinking about this hire a minute- it's brilliant. You can have all the geeky notifications and things that would make this device super functional. By adding an extremely functional fitness aspect, it is now also a sexy device. Oh- you're wearing an iWatch? Clearly you're interested in fitness. And being fit is sexy and attractive. So they get the "cool, sexy" factor while still being completely functional and not nerdy. Geniuses, these Apple folk.
I agree black book- it would be nice. Even if they announced a smart watch version this fall or potentially in the spring and increased the features for the next model- and that's what this hire is for. I have a coworker who just bought a pebble- it's ok and the watch itself looks decent- but the digital UI just doesn't look sleek. Apple would fix that.
My wife wants one bad. There's another vote for gold. I'm sticking with scratchtastic black.
It's not simply aesthetics. Yes, it's a huge aspect- but the new 27" iMacs run substantially cooler than its predecessor. That was one complaint I had on my office 27" from 2010- even just being. And running simple apps a FileMaker, safari, mail, calendar- it would cook an egg. As would my iMac at home. The new ones run significantly cooler to the touch. That is a great thing about the design of the fan system. But people overlook that just to complain about something that...
All the ports on the back of the iMac? Hello? They've had that since day one of the G4. They only moved the card reader- which isn't a big deal at all.What do you use more- the card reader now, or the USB port back when you had to plug in your iPhone to sync? It didn't seem to bother anyone then.I'm a Blu-ray fan. Huge one. But I realize in the minority- and I'm all for the optical going bye bye. Get a $20 Samsung external from amazon and put it in a drawer for the once...
