 I think some people are just jealous that he has: "A decade of experience in technical consulting or employment in information technology, recognized by the University of California to be equivalent to a Master’s Degree in Computer Science." http://www.roughlydrafted.com/resume.html
 If it's good enough for Apple to use in their own datacenters, it should be good enough for Apple's customers. 
So far I see the following criticisms of this camera:   Price Megapixels Form over function   Strangely this resembles the criticisms that some people have for Macs and iPhones.  So why not offer the same defenses for Lytro?
 Then what's with all the people on this site and other Mac oriented sites slamming companies like HP, Dell, IBM and deriding the concept of enterprise servers?  If Apple is using those servers with non-OS X operating systems in their own massive data centers, then what business do Apple fans have to slam those companies?
I was hoping the video would show Apple's data centers with racks full of Mac Minis and iMacs all running OS X Server.  Since that's what Apple promotes to its customers as servers, it would be good to see Apple using these themselves - eating their own dog food, as it were.  But instead, the video showed this:  
 I agree wholeheartedly.  People complaining about DED should take a look at his credentials: http://www.roughlydrafted.com/resume.html These complainers should be ashamed that they dare dispute a man who has: "A decade of experience in technical consulting or employment in information technology, recognized by the University of California to be equivalent to a Master’s Degree in Computer Science."
 And Apple fans back in the day were defending the pricing just as Apple fans defend Apple's pricing today.  Are you saying the Apple defenders were being disingenuous back then?  And so your assertion is that the selling price of a Mac does not include anything other than the cost to build the hardware.  Got it!  But wait, what about all the backlash from Apple fans whenever someone compares Mac prices with PC prices?  Or when companies like iSuppli publish articles about...
 Did you? Those were the reasons given by Sculley.  Seems perfectly reasonable, not "artificial".  Do you dispute those reasons?  Do you expect Sculley to admit that he was "artificially inflating prices" for no sensible reason?  Was the 1984 commercial and all other marketing since then all done for free?  What about all the time, creativity and research that went into the Mac design?  Isn't that the same argument that people on this site give when companies...
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.
