  What I already said.  But if you think about it, while more upscale and sophisticated, it's the same basic tactic used to make you feel like you're somehow connecting with the world of a famous athlete or whatever if you drink a certain sugary (or sucralose-y) carbonated beverage or eat some awful sat-fat/refined flour/mystery meat fast food concoction.Anyway, call me a reactive cynic about advertising and you'll be right.  But got it outta my craw.
All that infrastructure - built nearly all at once - will all age at once. What happens then....??We (or someone) shall see....
Where does the article say the broadcast STATIONS are on board?  All that's mentioned are the broadcast networks.  There's a diff between having access to network content from a central source and local channel content from hundreds of different channels.  So tbc, but I wouldn't bet on your local news being there....ESPN, OTOH, pretty likely given Apple's ties to Disney. All kinds of knots here.  Other examples:  I listen to Bloomberg radio on their site because clearer...
Obviously shot on Apple's Holodeck...
  1.  The MBA's on the path to legacy and the new MB's the forward wedge, but there's a rich legacy out there.  My 13' MB Air (i7/8GB/512GB) is my main computer and I'm driving a DVI monitor off the TB port and have a full 7 port USB dongle with things I have to switch in and out.  (External drives, optical drive, printer, scanner, charge phone, charge reserve battery for devices, etc.)So no, it doesn't travel much, but unlike an iMac I can take it on a plane when I do...
 ...and of course, Unobtanium....
 I think you're the closest to it.... ...more below....Partly, we're getting into, "If you have to ask the price, you don't need to know the price, 'cos it's not for you." territory with this puppy. Again more below....  The new MacBook is aspirational.  iPhones are aspirational.  And the two lower brackets of the W are as well, but - when you get to the land that new model/marathoner/activist/you name it role model Apple spokesperson and her aspirers live in, they're not...
   Giving the devil his due, he did get nearly all the specs right - retina, 12" and the single USB-C port in particular.  That said, projecting sales is a rather different skill set from ferreting out product info...Interestingly, BTW, in quoting him, AI inexplicably failed to add "well-connected" to the rest of the "full name" (KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo) they usually give him (WCKSAMCK)...  No, but the high price and anemic processing speed of the original Air...
  Not usually a conspiracy theorist and honestly couldn't tell "bad DNS" from "Weird Science" - but if not an attack (that the company didn't want to admit succeeded), possibly - in light of the revelations about how the CIA might have substituted their "X-Code with a backdoor" deeply into the Apple infrastructure - they might have needed to take down a whole chunk of infrastructure to reinstall clean code and programs from scratch to regain the security of their systems...
 Absolutely.  We (posters, bloggers, analysts, etc.) have all missed it - and it's right there in the event title:  "Spring Forward".... ....the Watch is going to sport a fine mechanical auto-charging mechanism capturing the user's wrist motions, and the oscillations of that will generate a small current trickle-charging a smallish battery (whose small size will leave the room for the aforesaid bit of neo-retro kit)... ...basically employing the same principle as many...
