I can't get choked up over a mild, temporary, better than industry decline in Mac numbers.   The new MBPs will kick it up, and while I would have liked a retina MBA I can understand the emphasis on battery life. I even have a sick fantasy of getting a new Mac Pro and 4K display that I just don't need.   Apple has the remainders of the profitable consumer market wrapped up, and time will tell on the Mac Pro. I don't like Apple's extended lull in products, but to...
    These have a more metallic sheen that I like. Hopefully the finish is something like this instead of flat candy shell. The other unknown is feel. As trivial as it sounds, the feel of the iPhone 4 was very satisfying. If took me longer to warm to the iPhone 5, but I like it now. Slippery smooth would be a mistake. I hope it feels mildly grippy, while still allowing smooth repositioning in the hand.
I don't get the bad reactions to these cases. They look fine, and will look better when you remove the protective plastic wrap which you see bubbling in the photo. Plenty of people like color, and many would prefer the less easily damaged plastic. These will be great for kids or careless adults. Premium materials will still be available in the flagship model.   My only comment is to recall a line from a movie referencing the color of a car: "I didn't know they made...
I have a hard time imagining an adult wearing one of these. It looks chunky, clunky and cheaply generic.
  Not just R&D, but source of infrastructure funding. How many of these investments in the factories of partners (soon to be competitors) have we heard about recently? How many times must Apple get burned before deciding to diversify themselves?
  There are old people in the picture as well, how unsightly. Only young, attractive people should be allowed to shop at Apple stores.
This is probably retaliation for recent rejections of mimolette imports. Free the cheese mites.
  Sigh, reading comprehension fail once again. I never hyped a Samsung product. I said a retina MBA would be a nice upgrade from my current MBA and offered the Samsung as proof it can be done.   I'll give you some help: sound out the words, look them up in a dictionary, parse the combined meaning and actually take a break from your knee jerk desire to label people a heretic and THINK about what you just read. Primary school children do it every day, and if you apply...
  You must have a reading comprehension problem. As stated, I do use Apple products. Try a little harder to understand next time and you won't be so lost.
  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.
