In my view, the main point of a "whole" TV would be to be able to offer a simple user interface with a small and simple remote instead of the multiple remotes and configurations that people are still tolerating. I imagine turning on said TV and being presented with an interface something like the current AppleTV box provides. That would be the "main" interface as opposed to the current tv interfaces where you start with the tv remote, chose your input channel, switch to...
It's a clever new niche for LED bulbs and personally I can't wait to try it out. Of course you won't change all your lights but three bulbs in the living room doesn't seem excessive. The remote control stuff doesn't add much to the already high price of a quality LED bulb. This is Philips, not some cheap generic light bulb company.   Also, in your comparison you don't mention the bother of having to change lightbulbs at the least opportune times. That's worth a few bucks.
Yes, but you can't control the color of the lightbulb from the light switch. That can only be done from within.
I don't think Apple will be "too afraid" to do something like that. I'm picturing a tall Mac mini style box.
The iPad doesn't fit into a coat pocket. That's what the iPad mini is all about.
They could surprise with 2048x1536 like the new iPad. That would give a pixel density like the iPhone 4/5. In any case, yes, the ratio will be 4:3 and it will run all iPad apps unchanged.   Something tells me that Apple won't want to make new products that don't have retina displays. However, in this case they need to keep the price point low so they should probably stick with the lower resolution and make the jump maybe next year.
  I think people are reading this wrong. IOS devices will soon represent more than 90% of Apple's income. The Mac and non-IOS iPods are going to be fringe product lines. Apple is putting all their energy into IOS devices and this new hire will most certainly be part of that with future iPhones, iPods, iPads, TV products and whatever else their collected imaginations conjure up and dare to do. Huge investments dwarfed by mind boggling returns.   It may be that the iPad...
  Something doesn't seem right with these two phones. If the bigger one is truly only 4.8" then the smaller one (I applied a ruler to my monitor) is only 3.6" or thereabouts. At that size those 5 icons on the bottom row are going to be hard to hit with a one-handed thumb.   If the smaller one is 4" then the bigger one would be well over 5".
  This will only be available in Europe. This is so you can use any micro-usb based charger to charge your phone, as required by law in an attempt to reduce the massive consumption (throwing away) of chargers. The US doesn't have this requirement so Apple doesn't offer the adapter there. I'm sure 3rd parties will offer something like it eventually. I haven't seen it in Apple stores outside of Europe.
  Apple designs their own chips. Samsung gets the blueprints and uses their advanced 32nm tech to manufacture the chips. Then, a few months after getting the blueprints they start producing their own.
