  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.
You might want to check the launch requirements first.   It takes more deltaV to dump a package into the sun than it would to send the same package out of the solar system.
  Except that you still could either run existing Mac apps in Classic mode, or reboot into OS 9 if a specific application didn't play nicely.   I clearly remember testing 10.0 and able to do some work in 10.1 while using OS 9 for most of it, and being mostly switched away from OS 9 by 10.2. (We were a Mac sea in a very large Unix shop.)   In retrospect, it was a fairly painless transition, since it wasn't an either/or situation; we could switch between the environment...
The policy of charging the family for the bullet used to execute an "enemy of the state" was adopted by the Chinese from Soviet practice.   The Nazis may have done the same, but I'm not positive I recall that correctly.
  And the weight, don't forget that.  
Just how long do you think it would take to list, much less demonstrate 275,000 iPad apps?
I'm on a local school board, and we're extremely interested in the possible smaller iPad model.   Possible lower costs aside, it would be more comfortable for kids in the lower and middle grades to use.
As someone else previously pointed out, component cost is only part of the total product cost.   Depending on the product, it might anywhere from 90% to 2% of the final cost. (Highly-scientific WAG applied to produce the answer.)
Just checked here. Background tasks window toggles by clicking on the button, and command-9 works normally. (2010 MBA, 10.8.2, 10.0.5, etc.)
