  Yes Apple is definitely tasting some delectable margins, but two things...   The speed of the SSD that you get from Apple is top notch (especially the controller).   Second, the compatibility with OS X is also tighter.   I have my own simple SSD I upgraded myself, and while it is fine and snappy, the MBP retina getting 300MB/s and 400MB/s plus in Blackmagic benches is very impressive. Also a lot of third party SSDs work with OS X, some don't.    Just some points,...
  Actually the Apple HDMI-HDMI cable is one of the cheapest out there compared to retail shop unicorn-horn HDMI cables.

  Government is not required, but where governments don't do it, it doesn't really exist. Salvation Army doesn't count. I'm not sure you can deregulate the social safety net... I haven't seen a strong case where private (profit or nonprofit) entities can achieve what governments can (eg. Scandinavia).   There is a role for government. But if the government is shite then of course one thinks what's the point of government. But that doesn't mean all government is shite.
