 All previous updates have been 2nd AND 3rd gen. There is no reason to believe this won’t be the same.
 Watch it, buddy. You are teetering on the brink of being labeled a racist xenophobe. Gotta keep it politically correct these days.
 As the iHaters will allege, Apple is NOT an American company. They repeat the FUD that Apple manufactures nothing and that all their products are made in China. They point to the “Designed by Apple in California” label as proof. Forty years ago people were asking Americans the same question regarding automobiles. How could an American buy a “Jap” car? How could Americans buy foreign goods when they know it will cause job losses locally? Well, they can and they do.
 I don’t know what kind of site you think AppleInsider is but it’s not a professional tech news outlet. It’s an Apple fan site. This sort of thing goes on daily at Android fan sites.

He’s a spinmeister of the highest order and I put him in the same category as the Macalope over at MacWorld. What’s wrong...

They don’t even want to try. A minority of squawkers is making a bunch of noise about physical keyboards as the world moves on. Where have we heard that mantra before? Why the “matte screen” MacBook squawkers who, to this very day, rage on about their glossy screens and how they...
But market share is everything!
 No, I don’t suppose you would.
Do I hear crickets chirping from the Android bleacher seats here on AI?
The fact that Samsung and Microsoft feel they have to attack Apple shows how dominant and powerful Apple really is. Way back in dinosaur days I was in sales (big tickets items involving dealing with large committees). My boss sent me to a number of professional sales seminars and Dale Carnegie courses. In every case it was made perfectly clear that the minute you mention your competitor you have lost. To mention your competitor gives them legitimacy, makes the customer...
