I'm sure it's great tech and will improve cell phone PQ, but to state that it's DSLR quality is absurd. You cannot achieve in a small sensor and tiny lens what can be achieved with a large sensor and lens. And any advances in sensor tech that reduces noise in small sensors also gets applied to large sensors to further improve their quality. The iPhone already makes images good enough for Facebook, etc. But display those images at full size and they usually look like...
That assumes that the doctor is going to have a terminal accessible for the consumer. I can see one of those walk-in emergency practices having this where they have lots of patients and do a lot of daily billing, but every private doctor/dentist that I've been to, if they accept credit cards at all, has one terminal way behind the desk. So Apple Pay really wouldn't work and I don't see that they'd have any impetus to invest in it - it's not going to increase their...
Great, great work!  Beautiful.   It's this kind of footage that makes me want to buy one.   But I have to admit that I'd want a lot of practice before I'd send it out over the water like you did.   
It has to do with the overall intention of each service or application.     There's a big difference between a streaming TV service of a known brand like HBO (or Cinemax or Showtime or whatever) and an application.  With a service like HBO, you know exactly what you're getting and most of it is not about porn (or erotica).    There's also a difference because 90% or more of HBO is not erotica (Game of Thrones and the like aside) but 90% of a porn-related application...
On the off-chance that this isn't sarcasm, I'd say you're woefully misinformed or full of crap.    I'd believe that a superintendent of a facility or a building manager makes that kind of money, but I refuse to believe that a starting janitor makes much more than minimum wage.  Apple may pay well, but they don't pay that well.    
 That's true and it's also because the unions use fear tactics whenever prison workers' jobs are threatened (and for the record, I'm not anti-union).   But it's also because of a "law and order" psychology, minimum sentencing and "three strikes you're out" laws, the use of "broken windows" policing where any crime is treated seriously, archaic drug laws that don't work and racism, since as of 2009, 39% of prisoners were non-hispanic blacks when all blacks (including...
Personally, I don't see how working on the external construction is a security risk.   I see some slight risk when they construct the interiors.   Most felony convictions are for attempted murder, manslaughter, assault, robbery, bank robbery, car theft, business fraud, drug sales, etc.   This might be of concern if Apple employees were already at the site, but they're not.   Aside from the security of the other construction workers and as long as all workers are checked as...
You're right.   They should have hired someone who graduated Podunk Community College and they definitely shouldn't have hired someone who worked at the EPA for a position related to the environment.    And Princeton has such a terrible reputation (along with Harvard, Yale, etc.)    Apple should hire you as head of HR.  
I think the reason why there's such criticism of factories like Foxconn is because of the perception that poorly-paid people are working under far less than ideal conditions to make products primarily for rich westerners.   Today, you could probably add that they're making products for rich "easterners", since Apple's sales in China are apparently quite good.   Let's say that working in a Foxconn factory is about equivalent to working in a Detroit auto factory in 1955,...
And before all the nastiness begins, let me remind people that Lisa P. Jackson is not related to Jesse Jackson. She was the administrator of the EPA before joining Apple and has a Master of Science degree from Princeton.
