Couch cushion change. Pointless.
The one thing anyone who knows this space can agree on is that it won't work without having a 'wow' style factor. Why else would the last two executive hires by Apple be from the fashion industry? That's why I think this is real, and not a 'ruse'. (Plus the simple fact that wear-ables is clearly the next frontier.)   But whoever proposed this rumor of smaller watches for women clearly has no awareness of style. Women who wear watches are essentially wearing...
Hopefully international corporations will learn that the benefits of hiding their income from the country that made it possible in the first place (i.e. U.S.) are outweighed by the truth of the old bromide "You lie down with dogs, you get fleas."   (And yes, I own AAPL.)
Or let the inevitable sea change happen. Saw an article today about how media producers are finding ways to get their content into users' hands ahead of the normal channels. 
Nah, the gas hike after 9/11 was child's play compared to the monumental war profiteering done by Halliburton, KBR, et al. Privatized war is the big casino of profiteering... a few bucks on an iPhone is chump change.

I've been saying for a year that I'll jump to the mini once its retina, mainly because I'm actually starting to suffer arm pain from the weight of the iPad 3. But after a week of articles such as Gruber's defining some good criteria for deciding which device to get, its looking like I'll be getting an iPad Air tomorrow. I'm now in the 'iPad as primary device' camp because I spend all day at work behind a computer (ecch Windows, but a computer nevertheless) and now use my...
Or you could grow up.
Regarding weight... iPad Air: 1 lb iPad 2:   1.33 iPad 3/4: 1.5 (?)   New iPad mini: .73 lb iPad mini: .68 lb   So the mini has gotten heavier (presumably due to more battery needed. Its gotten .01" thicker as well. The iPad Air is nearly a half pound lighter, and considerably smaller.   I had been pretty sure I'd go for the Retina mini (mostly because my left arm is starting to suffer pretty serious pain from holding it) but I'm beginning to think I may go for...
Then don't get one?
