Great to preserve the forest, which I assume they'd really be doing since they have the endorsement of the Conservation Fund, which I assume is legit, but does paper and packaging need virgin fibers at all? Can't the packaging be made totally from recycled paper and cloth? And if that means that Apple's products have to come in brown boxes instead of shiny white boxes, who cares?
On rare occasions, I do still use my old Rollei for shooting medium format film in black and white, but I'll readily admit that I've gotten so used to chimping that it actually scares me to shoot film even though I felt very secure shooting film and almost always got good results back in the day.   I'd love to shoot 4x5 or 8x10, but my father's partner sold all the equipment after my father died.  It's also really expensive to shoot sheet film these days and you have to...
Yes and if you had heard that he refused to sign something, I'm sure you'd write a post putting him down for that. 
 Well it depends upon your definition of good enough.  My father was a pro-photographer and his standard camera was a 4x5 Graflex press camera, but in the studio they used 8x10 cameras.   They also did a lot of work with Cirkut Panorama cameras which made negatives 6", 8" or 10" high and several feel wide and were contact printed.   Images from those things were amazing.   For weddings and events of that nature, they used medium format 6x6cm, which is what I learned...
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...
