"you might wanna read up on some of their projects like driverless cars and asteroid mining"   Yeah, because that's where personal tech is going, and Apple needs to emulate them.     Google is in this way a bit like a lottery winner.  They are going to buy that marble fountain to put out in front of their six-room prefab ranch.  Yes, it's impressive, but it's still a bit of a head-shake.  They want to be Elon Musk.  They just don't have the vision, they don't know how...
I could imagine part of their snit has to do with the WSJ eating their lunch in terms of tech reporting.     Well, except for Kara.  Compared to Walt, it's like watching a SNL parody of a tech reporter.  
Here Apple embodies what an old physician mentor once told me, "life is too short to pussyfoot."
iPhone 4S, iPad Mini and Late 2009 MacBook here. Joy. MB needs a battery, natch, and I'm very tempted by the new Crucial M500 256GB SSD for $110 - cheaper than a battery!
Still have my '89 shirt & badge.  
So here comes the part where suddenly / magically $299 Studio headphones will be labeled "overpriced" because they're in the Apple ecosystem...

Bug you say? You can only get to your own anyway and all of that is in the GO menu. I for one welcome our user-less overlords!
It mentions Safari 7.0.3 - any indication that it includes the Javascript JIT upgrade that's in the WebKit nightly builds as of this week?
Still have mine. Still runs HyperCard stuff that was pretty slick at its time, still pretty impressive for B&W at that clock speed. Pagemaker in B&W was insanely useful at the time, but I can't imagine we ever did that. I have a 1280x800 desktop on my MacBook with a tattoo of the Classic desktop at native resolution. It's like looking at a Palm Pilot screen now.
