"App hides pre-installed iOS titles" Making a folder called "Meh." is still possible.
Why bother with the cooler - just wait for it to freeze on its own... (rimshot)
Schools don't want wireless mice and keyboards. Batteries are one issue, walking is another. In no way is a USB cable any form of security, but psychologically it makes a difference. Good to see the SD card in and BT back as standard. There is still some CD/DVD distribution of software, but almost everything we use is available on the network. Oddly there are still some disc-based licenses that say the software cannot be accessed on a network. It would be nice to...
Don't worry - that 2005 eMac will get around to processing all that web data in a day or two... it's a feature! (I have a few of them still in service...)

That assumes the only reason Apple has money is because the shareholders gave them some. It utterly ignores the idea that a company sees gains and is supposed to...
Think of the money they coulda saved on the US93 bridge if they'd just called Apple first. Not to mention one sweeeeet thrill ride.
