 It's good to not make too much of an assumption, but here you're putting much more of a spin on the quotes and story than those simply going with what Cook was clearly implying.   There really aren't a whole lot of ways to interpret "Different than we thought" in this context.
 Very true.   Running Windows (natively) was a selling point for Apple, but Boot Camp has never been the smoothest way to do it. As an aside, what are the chances of Apple breaking the ability to run a virtual OS at all in future hardware or systems?       That makes it an interesting situation, because 8 might be fantastic but businesses still haven't been making much of a move on it.   Seems the majority of dual users in the near future will still be using 7 solutions...
 Agree.   Though with any other manufacturer the difference in the retail price of two devices with 8G difference of storage would be marginal.  By not slashing the price enough and instead offering an 8Gig model Apple is going to have a hard time getting much of a response except for "Big whoop." I disagree with those saying there's no market for an 8Gig device in general.  Having done such a remarkable job putting iPads and Minis on the street, there's now a new niche of...
  The mid range MacBooks on down down have much need for running Windows.  But in a pro environment, which is the market for this machine, some people are totally OS X-centric but do need to go into Windows occasionally.  It can't be avoided for what they do.  What Apple should be doing, IMO, is not give anyone any reason to spend any time in front of a non-Apple computer.  They can't give them a good reason to never, ever enter into Windows, because they haven't set the...
True. But what I meant was where was the push six months ago? Kind of late to start this now and not have it come off like what you describe.Just adds to the taint that further dooms the legacy of a decent piece of hardware.
 Being a Macbook instead of a tablet: USB3, T-bolt and OS X, for three.  It's a totally different animal, similar only in that it's thin and light.   IOS and OS X are complementary to the max, but there are times when someone just wants to be in OS X.  And if certain kinds of work are in the cards the MBA is still a good pick.  Let's face it: an iPad isn't the right tool for everything.
No doubt it will be a space for demonstrating not just hardware but the.Google software (including acquisitions like Nik image plugins) to the public. Soho is an area where there are many clothing designer's "retail" spaces and high end brands showcases, but really 90% of what goes on in some of those places is spreading knowledge of their latest lines to their niche, who enjoy checkng it out but would never buy something there. There is definitely plenty of purchasing...
Weird timing for a 5c marketing push.
 I just want it to tell me where the nearest WaWa is.
  NYC is a funny place as far as public transportation, in that it's what most people use as their only means of getting around but that's not because it's so great (it really is pretty good) but because owning a car anywhere near Manhattan is an insane PITA and cash suck.  When the trains don't run literally hardly anyone says "Well, I'll just drive in instead".  Even if they live in Brooklyn and own a car (like me.  BTW, iPads have revolutionized sitting in your car...
