Maybe sound quality could be a differentiator for iTunes. With iTunes Radio streaming at high-quality 320 kbps AAC using a Spotify like on-demand model while providing the option for payed downloads at full CD quality Apple-Lossless and Studio Master quality 24bit 96kHz - 24bit 192kHz Apple-Lossless for audiophiles, like HDtracks, Linn Records etc...
Last year I went to see the Manet exhibit in London, at the Royal Museum of Art I believe and the audio guides there seemed to be Android based with me having to manually indicate on the touchscreen next to which of his paintings I was standing via a number next to said paintings. iBeacons should be a great improvement on that sort of thing.
I don't know about this Cortana but I have both Siri and Google Now on my iPhone and the latter understands my questions correctly far more often than the former unfortunately, to the point now that I barely use Siri at all.
Thought this was a great product until I read about the subscription requirement. That just killed it for me.
The UI - in these photos anyway does look nicer than that of CarPlay. When I first saw the screen pics of CarPlay it struck me as too literally similar to that of the iPhone and reminded me a bit too much of the Apple TV's UI - those awful channel app icons! It's nowhere near as bad as that...but still Apple could of made it slicker looking, and they yet might in version 2.0 or 3.0 maybe.
This is an interesting product and pretty much what people were expecting for a next-gen Apple TV. I really hope Apple have got something to counter this in the pipeline - the sooner the better!
The A7 in the iPhone is clocked at just under 1.3 GHz, if they doubled that clock speed to what you might see in an Intel i5 (as used in the 13" MBPr I'm writing this with!) both dual-core 64 bit processors, I wonder how close in performance the two would be?
4.5" - Aye? The current option is 4".
I reckon this next-gen Air might replace the 13'' MBPr too (the one I've got), not just the current Airs.
