Our experience in the past year doesn't match your assumptions. It's a small elementary school, iPads now in grades 5-8:    1 - at the end of the year there was 1 broken iPad (a student dropped an iPad that landed corner-first on another iPad.  1a - Eyeballz work very well to protect iPads. The sole issue is that they have to be taken off when charging the iPad in         the 10-unit charging station.  2 - except for the cracked screen of one, they all appeared like new...
  This one (and not very atypical one at at that):   1) Speaks/reads/writes English and Spanish, reads Italian, German, some French, struggles with Dutch, has forgotten most of his written Russian (hey, it was 40 years ago in elementary school), learning Korean. Doing all of them for fun, since, except for the Spanish, there's not much call for daily use of the rest. Driving out to visit our oldest daughter is the rough equivalent of driving from Paris to Moscow, Ankara,...
This is a killer app for schools. For example, I'm on the board of an elementary school that's moving from paper to e-textbooks, including providing iPads for the upper grades (5-8). This means that they can start a presentation/project/report on the iPad in class, then continue working on it at home, whether they've got a Mac, a Windows PC, or an iPad ... it doesn't matter. They continue using what they already have, and don't have to shell out scarce dollars to be able...
You really need to watch the WWDC keynote where this is shown, around the 1:00:00 point in the presentation.   Specifically where they show iWork for iCloud documents being worked on from a Windows PC in a Windows browser.   They mentioned three browsers being supported: Safari, IE, and Chrome. OS X, iOS and Windows.
  Except that you don't have to pay for the basic service, only if you need more capacity than the default 5GB. And mail, calendar, etc. are not continuing costs in any case.
You just might consider that cockpit isn't the spacious equivalent to a gym. It's far too easy to end up in an awkward stance as you shift those 40 lbs around.
Of course.   Wait. You're serious?   Have you ever worked in an airliner cockpit, particularly late at night after a series of long flights?   Injuries won't happen often, but they do, and when they do, they're expensive to deal with.   This isn't like moving something in your grandmother's basement.
  Sorry, a Jaguar is not the same as puma/mountain lion/painter/catamount. It's quite a bit bigger, for starters.
  There were reasons for killing the line, but this wasn't one of them. Remember that digital sensors from 1994-5 were very different from what we take for granted now, particularly in low-light performance. CCD (mostly what was available back then) and CMOS sensors don't have the same spectral response as the human eye; it takes a lot of design tweaks, and a lot of software processing to get the results you expect now.   The old QuickTake 100 does surprisingly well when...
the Infinite Loop campus was originally built in the late 70s by Four Phase Systems, who made the first all-LSI minicomputer systems. The site included foundry space, where they designed and made their own LSI components. (Apple was scattered around the local area back then, much of it in buildings fronting De Anza Blvd.) Four Phase faltered in the early 80s, got bought, eventually moving to Arizona under Motorola, finally being smothered in its bed with a pillow.
