The Macbook Pro (arguably the most popular Mac) is 16:10 (2880/1800 = 1.6 = 16/10)
 An efficiency/productivity gain just frees up resources. Some process that used to cost $200 now costs $100, so the company now has $100 to spend on something else. It's up to management to decide what. A pay increase for workers and/or management, back to the shareholders, into R&D? What would make them choose a pay increase for low skilled workers is if they can't hire enough of the kind of worker they need at the wages they're currently offering. And I don't think...
A decent documentary is a really good idea actually. I just watched a documentary about Benjamin Franklin this afternoon and it was as entertaining as any movie.

I wasn't concerned about getting an updated CPU or GPU because I have a separate PC for gaming or long running compute jobs.   And, wow, what a screen.

That means becoming more efficient at making goods. When Tim Cook makes Apple more efficient, such...
The A9 so quickly?
The X-Wings look like they're on some kind of forested planet (Endor?) and the guy with the red lightsaber is somewhere cold (Hoth?)
