It's not in Apple's interest to make it more attractive for 3rd party device manufactures to get behind USB3 because that would reduce the demand for Thunderbolt devices.  My guess is that Apple will not disable USB3 in hardware, but will not make USB3 drivers available in 10.8 unless there is an overwhelming customer outcry for it.  I expect Apple's response to be something like: "Thunderbolt is better than USB3, therefore we are supporting Thunderbolt.  If you don't...
Tallest Skil is quite right.  Apple will never, ever support Blu Ray in any product.  To do so would be contrary to Apple's strategic interests.    
Along with the above, it is possible that the next generation of Airports and Time Capsules might include a Thunderbolt port.  
Close. That's the number of iPads Apple sells on an average day. Use amount for things which are measurable rather than countable. Use number for things which are countable. Money is the only exception (because long ago money was weighed rather than counted).
Yes. At most about 1/3 the size. I think Apple should make the next Mac Pro as small as possible with a high-end 8-core CPU, 8 DIMM slots, one drive bay, and support for an SSD card (like the MacBook Air). Ports should include 2 Thunderbolt, 4 USB 2.0, and 2 Ethernet. Anyone who needs RAID can get an external RAID device. No need for internal PCI slots. That should make it possible to sell an entry-level configuration for $1499 with Apple's margins. It could be...
The chips are already soldered onto the circuit board, so you would be replacing at least the motherboard. It's difficult to imagine that would be better than buying a new Mac.2015.
What do you plan to do when the CPU, GPU, and RAM are all on the same chip?
"In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case," White wrote. "This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade." This is just idiotic. The reason to upgrade is the new features, not the "sleek new look". I expect the 6th gen iPhone to have the same case and look and the 4th and 5th gen iPhones.
Anyone who is still thinking of Apple as a computer company is confused. Apple are a consumer electronics company, not a computer company. There is a reason why Apple changed their name from Apple Computer Inc. to Apple Inc. (in January of 2007).
Yes. Just two years from now, in 2014, Apple will be able to introduce a Mac Mini faster than today's entry-level Mac Pro.A 512GB SSD in 2012 will be one of those things that if you have to ask about the price, you can't afford it. I expect it to cost more than the 2011 price of the 256GB SSD. The good news is that prices will continue to drop fast.I rather suspect Apple would put the GPU on the motherboard.I strongly disagree. For another few years, MacBook Pro SSD...
