USB 3.1 will definitely spread (based on how quickly the PC world has adopted new USB versions in the past), but whether the USB-C connector will is more up in the air. We could end up in a world where 95% of the PC world sticks with type A connectors. 
It could be good for MPs to have tablets... It might improve the quality of debate if you can fact check your opponent in real time.
I don't know about New Zealand, but the arrival of Netflix in Australia has disrupted the market a lot. The traditional cable providers have dropped their prices through the floor, and 2 local Internet streaming services have opened: Presto https://www.presto.com.au and Stan https://www.stan.com.au   iTunes has not lowered their prices or made any visible changes though. iTunes charges $6.99 for a single HD rental vs Netflix $11.99 for a month of all you can eat HD.

The last iOS update had a long list of bug fixes, it would be nice if this OS X one did too.
This is certainly different to how Apple has marketed products in the past. We'll see if it works!   They really have getting dressed down to a science, don't they?
I believe the main difficulty/barrier to entry in the EV market is the ability to reliably mass produce complex objects. Apple has lots of experience in mass production, and Tesla has a head start on everyone else, but I'm not sure many of Branson's past ventures have involved mass production. He seems like more of a business/branding maestro.
They are definitely going all-out to make it cool, e.g. the ads in modelling/style magazines instead of tech magazines. One can imagine in 10 years time, miniaturization will be such that you will have a little pin that you clip to your collar, or shirt, that has all the functionality of today's Watch. So all Apple's future computers will be jewellery in one form or another. So the display cases they are putting in for the Watch, and the safes, and the hiring of Angela...
I don't think that's necessarily the case, when people say they don't want it because it doesn't have enough functionality, there's no reason not to take them at their word.
When computers changed from primarily being something that sat on your desk to primarily something you carried around, suddenly it became important how they looked, and that's when Apple started to smash the competition. Because people have to use computers in the modern world, they have no choice, but they don't want to look geeky by carrying an octo-core RAID dual GPU laptop.   So the Watch... the question to me is, does it let you hide your phone away in your bag, and...
The article mentions a 1957 Fiat Multipla 600, but the 1968 model from that company was called the 1968 Fiat Abarth 595. 1968 = "SixtyEight" and 595 = "sg5" ? http://www.automobile-catalog.com/car/1968/211175/fiat_abarth_595.html
