You are right, to a degree, but there are limits. When an actor's physical appearance is at too great a difference from a real person he is portraying that the audience has known in their lives, the "willing suspension of disbelief" can be broken. Not so with fictional characters, or real people from the distant past we know only from still pictures or paintings. I am both a techie and a retired acting teacher.

When will the fact that people upgrade tablets less frequently than phones cease becoming big news to analysts? One word: subsidy.
Snowden: the gift that keeps on giving.
Some kind of collaboration between Apple and Tesla seems plausible. They are close geographically, have DNA of disruptive innovation, and have core competencies that are symbiotic. Perhaps a Tesla "Apple Edition"? Tesla's entry into the 21st century "car for the rest of us."? Affordable but not cheap, small, beautifully designed, elegantly practical,
