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.
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...
