Everyone should take a look at this article by Andy Hertzfeld from the original Macintosh team:   http://www.folklore.org/StoryView.py?project=Macintosh&story=Price_Fight.txt   In this article he recounts how Steve Jobs wanted the Mac to be affordable for everyone, and felt betrayed by John Sculley's idea to raise the price significantly.  There was even a scene of this in the Jobs movie with Ashton Kutcher.   Back then, Steve had little choice but to go along with...
 Apple touts open source when it is convenient for them.
Thankfully we have sites like AI, so everything that Apple does is put in a positive role.
 considering that Apple doesn't even use their own "server" hardware or OS in their data centers.
Instead of comparing the quality of recordings with other recordings, shouldn't the real comparison be with the actual performance of the music that is being recorded?
Does the soldered RAM in the Retina MacBook Pro support ECC like the Mac Pro? One would hope that it does, since replacing faulty memory would require replacing the entire logic board.
   Actually, the "big FU" would be for those Apple apologists who insisted that those "neutered" versions of the applications were just fine when they were first released and that Apple didn't have to do anything more.  And this was before Apple made their public announcement committing to adding back many of the features that were removed -- another "big FU" to Apple apologists.  Would Apple have bothered to make such a public announcement, or bothered to add back those...

This Sharp monitor achieves 60 Hz display through MST.  If OS 10.9.3 will enable running this monitor at 60Hz over DisplayPort on Retina Macbook Pro, does that mean the rMBP will also support daisy chaining DisplayPort 1.2 monitors or using MST hubs such as this one:   http://www.accellcables.com/K088B-003B.html
People are forgetting about colleges providing free IT support for computers purchased through the school, as long as the student is enrolled in the program (MBA, etc.).  Are colleges going to provide free support for computers that a student just goes out and buys from somewhere?  Is an off-campus Apple Store genius going to understand all the special configurations or custom applications used by the school?  Will students now have to make genius bar appointments off...
