  Not a huge fan of the glossy displays myself. I've still got an old matte Cinema Display for my Mac Pro and I love it. My current MacBook Pro has a glossy display, but to be honest it has really become a bit of a non-issue. It is easy to adjust indoors and even outdoors I can usually find a position where it is manageable. That said, I'm looking forward to the, what was it, 70% glare reduction they mentioned in the keynote? That'll be a great bonus.   I work with colors...
  No, it isn't. For what you're getting (in terms of engineering) this is a fantastic price. That ASUS laptop is but a shadow of the build quality of this computer with far lower quality parts (in most cases), larger in size, and has much lower battery life (I'll also be surprised if it has the same processor and graphics). Many of these things aren't going to matter for a computer buyer. Many people don't care about the quality of their laptop in terms of engineering....
  Not losing sleep over the optical drive either. You can get a plug-in optical drive for use on those rare occasions where it matters (I know some people need an optical drive more frequently but they're probably in the minority, and if they can afford a laptop like this they're probably able to explore all the options available without fuss, or just get the regular MacBook Pro). 256 GBs of storage isn't much, but that's where the upgrades come into play. I personally...
  If you can't discern pixels on a normal computer screen you're not looking or don't know what to look for.   And you don't seem to understand how resolution independent graphics work in OS X or you wouldn't be commenting on the text size.   Did you really register just to troll about technology you haven't bothered researching?
So completely sold. Time to update my three year old MacBook Pro, which is starting to really show its age when I work. An upgrade for the 512 GB SSD and a browse over any other tiered features and this baby's on its way to my house. I haven't been able to think of anything I dislike about this new laptop.
In the United States it just offered to search, and I gather in the UK it displayed what this article suggests. So its behavior wasn't quite as the article (old or new) suggested, but a custom response is a new change.No, they didn't. Siri offers a wide range of sarcastic and humorous responses to non-serious questions and this is right along the lines of other questions which can earn similar responses. No need to be so serious.
Ah. That would explain it, then, and in that case this would be legitimate.
Really, AppleInsider? You couldn't be bothered to actually verify this before you posted a news story?   If you ask Siri 'what is the best smartphone ever' (and that's actually pretty hard to do—I can only make it work by pronouncing smartphone, 'smartohn', or basically by dropping the 'ph' but pronouncing it the same otherwise) she goes about looking for local shops. And I doubt this is Apple changing results because if you ask, say, 'what is the best camera ever',...
"Samsung Electronics Australia has nothing to do with..."   I'm suspicious of that (and the specificity of that statement). This seems quite like their recent advertising campaign, but it takes some balls to come out and say you had nothing to do with it when there's a good chance it will be traced back to you if you did. Some kind of entity was behind this. Quite coordinated. Some money changed hands.
Huh... I wonder how this will relate to Cafe Macs, which I was under the impression served largely the same purpose.   Maybe employees can't bring outside guests to this one? Amusing, given Cafe Macs is behind security, and the title suggests this one will be an independent building.   (P.S. This new template is so awkward. It feels incomplete.)
