  That's what happens when you don't have new products or even interesting upgrades to promote. You end up with vague brand promotion.   The ads aren't bad or good. I suspect most people will respond: Oh yeah, Apple. Have they released something new or interesting? I can't tell from this ad. No? Are they promoting something soon to be released? No? Oh well.
  It's sad when expressing a basic desire like having a retina display on the MBA (to replace my current MBA) gets me labeled a Samsung fanboy. That won't stop me from upgrading my Windows laptop to an ATIV 9 when it is released with Windows 8.1 this fall and enjoying what I had hoped to enjoy with a MBA upgrade. I still hold hope that Apple will eventually follow Samsung with a retina MBA. I guess that sort of devotion makes me an Apple fanboy.
  So it never occurred to you to have a retina display on the MBA? You do not think having a retina display on the MBA is worth doing?   The Samsung ATIV 9 is the same weight as the MBA and has a high DPI 13" touch display (3200x1800) with 12 hour battery and Haswell.   I will agree Apple pushed high DPI displays first and the MBA was first in powerful portability. Which is why it is surprising Apple has not combined those while Samsung has. Given Apple's refresh rate on...
  Samsung's new ultrabook does what everyone had hoped the just refreshed Macbook Air would do, so that is a better comparison. We will have to wait another year to see if Apple can catch up to where Samsung is now.
  That's where they serve the Chick-fil-a.
So much for ComiXology saying Apple is an anti-gay censor because ComiXology themselves decided not to publish a comic depicting gay sex through the Apple store. It could not possibly have anything to do with Apple's clear published policy against sexually explicit images.
  They did pick a terrible time to go comatose. The coasting began in 2012, in 2013 they are missing in action. Two years between significant updates to their one phone product, only minor bumps to other existing products and the same old promises of new stuff just over the ever retreating horizon. The new Mac pro looks interesting if they ever finish it and actually deliver.   The only action from Apple these days seems to be Cook's dealings over his share grants and the...
  Would it? I've seen 50" 4K TVs for $1100.   I think it would be a real coup to deliver a 27" 4K display for $999. It might eat some margin up front, but once again they would push people forward and make a new technology standard. It works for retina on the iPad.
  This is all in your mind. Mavericks is just a name, the image is probably meant to convey freedom and speed, and there is absolutely nothing even vaguely approaching "conquerer of the world".   Honestly, some anti-US hysteria has risen to be the international equivalent of Obama Derangement Syndrome. It's so overblown and detached from reality it has become a bad joke.
  Hot sex, tasty food and a cool buzz. Sometimes our finances only allow for internet porn, a bag of Cheetos and a Coors Lite.
