The market is bigger than the analysts seem to understand. The Kindle Fire will continue to sell well because of the lower price point. The iPad 3 will sell a record number. The whole tablet market pie will only get bigger.
I hope there's some security features built-in that prevents unauthorized purchases using your Siri device. I'm sure people out there share password with loved ones and those said loved ones (children) would love to go on a shopping spree.
I had my Kindle stolen and the thief could still make purchases from Amazon even though I changed my password online. Only a phone call to Amazon and the credit card company got the device disabled. Thankfully the Kindle Fire has...
It seems like forever since Apple had a specific event/news for education. Glad to see Apple is going back to its roots and shoring it up.
I'd like to see an upgrade to iLife and iWork for the Mac while they are at it. All signs point to iDevices getting all the attention while the iSoftware grows long in the tooth. It makes me believe all the more that OSX's days are numbered. We'll find out if that's true or not come WWDC.
MS really likes the name "Metro". That was originally a challenger to postscript and the PDF format. Now it is the new interface for Windows 8.

Amazon lowered the bar on price to make it more affordable and justifiable for...
I agree. They may have one more Lion version (e.g. Red Lion or something) but it is clear iOS is the new kid on the block with Apple's direction being iDevices.
With the war winding down Apple might consider its next move - robotics. Microsoft has a platform for that and Apple might want to start paying attention. Consumer robotics will start to take off beyond vacuums and lawn mowers. Surveillance/security, assisted living, and additional cleaning bots (hate...
