I ordered one. Looks to be a neat little unit.
Starbucks card is because it has a barcode purchase thing for Starbucks you can load up. No where near Apple Pay, but Starbucks have always been open to customers buying anyway.
As a shareholder, I find it rather disappointing that Apple is making political statements that may adversely affect people's opinion of the company negatively. History shows that anytime a company makes political statements, that consumers remember and that biases their view of a company. I.e. this may affect sales.
Apple should keep the press releases focused on winning customers by telling us about exciting new products.
I can't say I'm entirely sold on the new look. It looks an odd mix of colors to me and the start menu looks even more barren these days.
Some things look better, others like the bookshelves, well...
I guess time will tell when its out of beta and we can all play with it but I'm not convinced yet.
