Congress just like to grandstand. They enjoy hauling citizens before their public tribunals. Those people in the capital are moving further away from being representatives of the people every day, and turning themselves into performers and panderers.
Mine's already on too. It started about two weeks ago.
Thinking long term (a few years rather than a few months), a rational person would expect the move to the spaceship campus to disrupt operations. Perhaps the recent drought of Apple announcements is because they're working extra hard behind the scenes to "prime the pump" with products that can be produced and sold while the quite sizable staff moves into the new headquarters.

And while we're at it, let's leave networking to dedicated 3COM cards, and let's bring back the dedicated clock chip, and serial interface boards. Come on, things have always been getting more integrated. There is every reason to put good graphics on board the CPU die. Yes, Intel has lagged badly in graphics performance, but they're catching up. These are the first GPUs to really rival discrete chips.
My 13" MBP drives the 27" Cinema Display very well. I'm not sure how it could be better.
