Microsoft publicly asks the U.S. government not to hack its servers.   Which, in reality, really means that Microsoft is aware that its servers are currently being hacked.   Buying a game console with a built-in camera is just asking for trouble.
Could someone detail the value of an iMac pushing 6400 pixels over the standard 4K rez?   Because aside from inflating the cost of the GPU needed, I'm not sure I see the point.
 Smart people understand that the easiest way to extend the life of a desktop is to upgrade the RAM and HD. If you care about the environment, dumping good, usable machines after three years simply because they don't have the memory to run modern applications is sickening. I don't care how recyclable the chassis is, if adding a stick of RAM and a new HD means the machine (and screen) can be used again for education, prison or local and foreign charity uses, it should stay...
 Nah, security is going the way of the digital hub.There are concerns to be sure, but it's too late to stop the train.
Monitoring water use and indoor air quality would also seem like great options.   Though the latter seem more of a NEST kind of thing.
 Primarily because it wasn't a full year, it was the Fall of 2013 and we didn't see anything really new. Now, as jungmark mentioned, there's likely going to be a spurt of releases next week and then in the fall again. I'll hold off on criticism till I see the actual products, but cutting $100. off the iMac doesn't seem to me to be the way to grow sales of Macs.I want something that makes the iMac a must have again. Maybe, as I said here years ago, if they could tie home...
Oh dear, another 'year-of-the-chock-full-pipeline' quote.   Last one didn't turn out so well, but here's hoping.
 But not in the 21-incher. And recent reports say that sales for that model are lagging [can't find the link right now.] If cutting margins and delivering lower priced iMacs is really on the table, one would think it would be preferable to deliver more value.  For many of us, access to RAM and the hard drive adds value. That one person out of the ten is the smart one. :) 
If they do drop prices on the iMac, form will have finally and completely overtaken function.   The problem with the iMac isn't the price, it's the inability to replace the RAM and HD.   Design a semi-serviceable iMac, and keep the price and profit margin where they are.
 Not for print, but I think that's deliberate. Adding CMYK and Pantone-matching would make it easy for Pixelmator to charge $99. for a Pro version. The fact that they haven't done this, knowing fully well that it's always a top request, means they've either cut a deal with Adobe not to directly take on Photoshop or they are worried that directly competing with Photoshop will bring ugly consequences for them.
