If I wanted to hear about all the problems people are having with iOS 8, I'd head over to the Apple support forums or hang around my local Apple Store.  I was hoping there'd be some people talking about their experiences with the latest iteration of WatchKit in the Xcode 6.2 preview.  But I guess I'll have to head over to the Apple developer forums for that.
I'm trying to figure out what most of these comments have to do with the WatchKit preview in iOS 8.2?
 A little late here, but a phono-to-line level converter + RCA-to-1/8" adapter would allow you to hook it up to the line-in on most computers.  Of course, you're then at the mercy of the quality of whatever analog-to-digital converter your computer uses (plus any line noise from improper shielding), but that's the easiest/cheapest way if you don't have a USB turntable.
I think they're trying to follow Steve's vision of people not needing to deal with raw files and folders anymore: just relevant documents within each app that uses them. The problem is that OS X still has raw file/folder access but iOS doesn't.  So you're interacting with files one way on your desktop machine and another way on your iPhone/iPad, which is confusing.  Especially given that, for files like PDFs or images, there may be many apps on your phone which can...
Delivering on Eric Schmidt's promise: "We know where you are. We know where you've been. We can more or less know what you're thinking about."
 It may not be the actual fingerprint that's sent for authentication -- just a crypto key associated with it.  But regardless, what happens when you're on an airplane (without Internet access) and want to use your laptop?  SOL?
 Online service provider?  Sorry, that's DOA for me -- it needs to use a local, secure-enclave for authentication like Apple's solution to be useful in all situations (online or not).
 Sony had already been working with cassette playing and recording technology for a long time before they released the Walkman.  It's only because the components had come down in cost (and R&D costs were much lower) that they were able to produce the Walkman for that cheap at that point in time.  They also had a fantastic design team.  This is one of my favourites. Both Apple and Sony have typically operated in the high-end consumer electronics market.  The reason is...
 You're right.  It was the second iteration of the iMac (about 1 year later) which added FireWire ports.  But regardless, it was a fixture on all Macs after that point up until recently.  Some PC manufacturers had already adopted it at that point, otherwise device manufacturers wouldn't have cared about the Mac-only market (which, despite the success of the iMac, was still very tiny in 1998-2000).  Also, PS/2 to USB adapters were commonly included with devices as a cheap...
 Apple put USB on the iMac because they needed a port for mice + keyboards and were transitioning from the old ADB ports.  It was never considered to be used for anything more than than low-bandwidth devices.  Apple was behind Firewire as the next generation, high bandwidth device connector for things like external hard drives, cameras, iPods, etc.
