I agree that if you plug it into an Apple display, which has its own set of ports, additional ports on the machine aren't needed.   But I don't know why anyone would buy the smallest, lightest laptop to primarily use it with an Apple Display.    So I still maintain that two ports on the machine would have been better. I completely agree with you about the USB connector, but I assumed there will be some USB to USB-C adapter or someone will soon quickly release some USB-C...
A fail that will sell extremely well.    But I agree that the adapters are overpriced and that there should have been two USB-C ports. 
IMO, they should have left the power cable separate and Mag-safe and/or there should have been two USB-C connectors.
How about because they can't afford to live on the salary that they're making.   How about because it's unethical for a company with the profits of an Apple to have employees (whether hired directly by Apple or through a third party) who are suffering economically.   How about because doing it your way is exploitation and if I'm correct that most of the drivers are probably black or hispanic, not to do so reeks of racism.   I'm not claiming that bus drivers should be rich...
And what new and improved features have you found?   Because aside from some font changes in menus and a new look for the bottom Tabs in Excel, I haven't really found any yet, although I haven't spent a hell of a lot of time with the new versions yet.
Excel:  I actually think this is Microsoft's best program - it has never crashed or failed and it has great functionality.  But I'll agree that some of the very advanced functionality is opaque and I don't use it, but I do use far more than Numbers can provide.   I can't say that I understand how to use every Function in the program, but I know enough that even my daughter's tax accountant couldn't figure out how I got numbers to automatically appear in the correct column...
For investment decisions, I think that would be correct unless one primarily invests in tech stocks, in which case Nasdaq would be better.  But for the overall health of the U.S. economy, I really think all three exchanges need to be evaluated.     Over the last few years, the S&P has outperformed the Dow.    At the end of 2012, the Dow was up 7.3% for the year, but the S&P was up 13.4%.   In 2013, it was 26.5% for the Dow and 29.6% for the S&P.  In 2014, it was 7.5% for...
I don't why you think Office 2011 sucks (for other than UI issues). I use it interchangeably with Office on a PC and it works absolutely fine. The big question is whether the Outlook calendar and address book will sync with the iPhone or at least sync with Apple's calendar and address book which would in turn sync with the iPhone like it used to. That used to work until either an OS update or iCloud (I forget which) came along. If it still doesn't sync, I don't know...
Why is this news?   Since you have to pay to have products placed, it's basically an advertisement.   Would there be a post if Apple was the #1 advertiser?   Back in the days when film companies requested to use products in films, I used to get calls from set designers looking for certain products I was involved with.   But after going completely out of my way to get them what they wanted (like rush shipping several hundred units from Europe to the U.S. or even...
Not that many retailers, especially independent retailers, take Apple Pay as yet.   I'm someone who tries to avoid the big chains, so it hasn't proved all that useful to me so far.   Although I was in a Lowe's hardware store the other day and their terminals didn't yet support Apple Pay (at least not the ones at self-checkout).    And while my local regional chain supermarket does accept Apple Pay, they still make you confirm the amount and sign the terminal, so what's the...
