Poorly worded article. As if Apple doesn't use ApplePay to collect data. It's part of playing the game, complaining about Apple here per se, but there isn't a pay service in existence today that doesn't collect and utilize user data. The article makes it seem as if CVS is blocking a system that doesn't collect any in order to install their own which will be performing a massive privacy breach.
I don't really have that much of a problem with soldered on RAM any more, as it's the way so much of the small profile laptops are these days. But 4 gig of RAM with Yosemite? There are going to be a bunch of disappointed non-computer savvy people who thought they'd be getting a typically snappy Mac. That chintzy RAM starts caching around with THAT pokey drive? Why even bother marketing that configuration? Can it even run for a week without imploding?
Only conceivable if you you exclude most of the ProApps (and Safari) over the past few years. If you want specific examples about Aperture (too obvious) and Logic (certain important issues finally dealt with after eons but still the worst resource hog in all audio) I'll post, but it's really not necessary.

He played it perfectly.As an aside, e NFL deal is a great one for Bose, as their niche among the football watchers does spend money on themselves. But it's a terrible one for the NFL. Bose is a hugely polarizing company, a turn off to most football fans under 35, I would say. Far worse a PR move than anything they could gain from it.
I don't think a lower cost of apps has any effect on piracy. For nearly all of the people who use pirated apps (or media or anything) if it can be acquired for nothing it will be done. Doesn't matter if the legit version costs $500 or $50, that just alters their rationalizing of it a bit. The harder it is to get pirated apps the less widespread they will be. As long as they are available easily the borderline downloader will always just do it regardless of any other...
I definitely don't think it will have all the older functionality, but it seems to have dealt with a few of the most disliked changes. On the other hand, if folks like the way it is and to have to delete a file 3 times before it stops showing up, well,they can keep this version.
