When I see this kind of thing, I realize I live in a very different world than some people. I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a restaurant that even had reservations.    Also, that's almost the cost of the Beats transaction.
It's silly now, but we're on the edge of some cool stuff. Tracking your calories easily is the holy grail for not getting fat. You can do it with paper and pencil, but most people don't stick with it.
I really love the steel spiral. The all-glass staircases are cool, but a little bit silly / show-off-y. This feels more in tune with using the right materials for the right purposes. I don't know if you really gain anything by making the steps out of glass. 
Hahaha, wow. I just took a screenshot of my cruelly inaccurate account balance. It's going to be a long time before I legitimately see 7 figures in there for real.
Well, the company can always issue more stock to employees or companies they acquire in lieu of cash, so high share prices save them tons of cash.
Exactly. Even if all the worst criticism is true, that Beats are overpriced, have terrible sound, and silly style, then even then you have to admit they pulled off a marketing miracle. At the very least, they're great a business.FWIW, my freind has a Beats bluetooth speaker and it is truly amazing the sound that comes out of that thing. It's so small yet it sounds beautiful.
I know it's a meaningless increase, but most people are not emotionless logic-only investors.    Even beyond the "it's cheaper, so I'll buy it" thing. Apple was stagnant for so long, people feel like they "know" what range it should be in. This shakes up everyones head a little. Now 700 doesn't feel like such a psychological barrier. Maybe we'll actually get a more fair valuation without that baggage. 
Love it. No more reason to think about where the thing you're looking for might be -- just search.
If they can track calorie consumption on a wrist, that will be a MAJOR technical achievement. Almost so major that I think this rumor can't be true. I would love to be surprised though.
