Go NVidia! Can mass CPU shipments coupled with widespread support for 64-bit benefits by the OS, great developer tools, and tons of third-party apps in users' hands be far behind? That's what we on iOS had a year ago, so I'm sure Android 64-bit support is now all caught-up with Google, developers, and handset makers alike! August 2014 a great month for Android users! They'll probably have CPUs with well-planned OS-integrated secure enclaves at the same time, no...
I always thought the proxy sensor, at the very least, should be in the same slot as the speaker. Probably the camera too. It doesn't matter on the black models, but I'm surprised Ives had tolerated those scattered black holes on the white models. Just make the slot bigger and line those components all up in a row! There must have been some engineering barrier I can't imagine.
I enjoy my AR.Drone, but if I had bottomless pockets this one looks awesome! (Still, the camera is secondary to me. I just like how easy/fun these things are to fly.)
 I remember them showing it off in a sickly, mildewy HP blue-gray and chrome look, like a 1960s vacuum cleaner. And what did they actually sell? Just white. Unbelievable let-down. Fool me once, HP! 
In the end, most of the YouTube videos from this will be people having it chase their poor Real Dog.
Tablets are the future for most personal computing (and a lot of work computing too). We've known that since "a big iPhone" was first imagined. But conventional computers will still have their uses, and Macs are advancing steadily. What is interesting is to see how the transition happens. At first it seemed it would be a slow shift over many years. Then the iPad took off and it seemed the shift was happening fast. Now tablet sales are slowing (but user base is still...
“Heeeeeeeeere's Maestri!”  
The more complete answers we get, the better. (And WAY better than we'll get from most phone-makers.) But this smells just a little like the typical twice-yearly "shocking scandals" about "if you give your iPhone to a stranger, and give them your password, and bring them snacks while they work and rub their feet, they might be able to get at your stuff!"
I'm glad these questions are being asked, and these details are being dug up. I hope I will also be glad when the answers emerge! It's always possible to improve.
Plenty of games with IAP are free. Forever. IAP can be highly optional. For example: ad removal, optional level packs, "cheat and unlock without trying just because I want the fun and not the challenge," etc. None of those are even gray areas. CONSUMABLE IAP (like in-game currency used to progress) is less clear-cut because it's a spectrum between "no need for it ever" to "really designed to push you into it again and again" (like Candy Crush). But consumable IAP is just...
