Having the only backup in the same machine may be a bad idea, but it's fine for a dedicated Time Machine backup as long as you've taking periodic cloned drive backups via SuperDuper!, CCC, etc.
Wondering why the top level 21" iMac doesn't offer the same 2TB Fusion drive option.
Glenn Fleishman put together a summary of some of the most glaring iOS and OS X bugs that haven't been fixed but should have never passed QA/UAT (scroll about halfway down to the "iOS Software" section):   http://glog.glennf.com/blog/2015/1/6/the-software-and-services-apple-needs-to-fix   So many silly little bugs, of things that just don't work quite right, or in some way seem unpolished or not well thought out.  If I see them every day, then someone in Cupertino has...
 Meijer is actually listed on the main Apple Pay website:  https://www.apple.com/apple-pay/   Even though Target stores are the proverbial poster children for NFC payments, they still seem hellbent on going the CurrentC route.  Mostly because they are addicted to tracking and aggregating people's buying habits and Apple Pay could reduce their ability to do that.
The easiest way to tell if Beats copied Monster:  If the price of a replacement cable is more than the headphones themselves. 
 Does the AppleInsider comments section really block links to forums.appleinsider.com/?   
 Because Apple does build different models for different carriers? Here's a fun activity you can do with your hands:  Break open your T-Mo or VZW iPhone 6 and find the CDMA chipset/antenna.
 If I were buying an unsubsidized (full price) iPhone 6/6+ today, I would definitely pick up one with CDMA support for the same money.  Up until yesterday, that would've been the Verizon models.  If it turns out Verizon is actually activating these new unlocked A1586/A1524 models*, the CDMA version of those would definitely be the one to get as they also include bands 38-41 (LTE-TD) that the Verizon models don't support. *Since these are available today at retail Apple...
 Awaiting confirmation...   ;-) (Also, the four additional LTE-TD bands that some networks will partially depend on, i.e. Sprint, US Cellular, many "overseas" networks).
 Unless there was a major policy change at VZW, the "SIM-free" iPhones will not work for Verizon.  Not due to any technical limitations, but because Verizon has had a strict policy to restrict phone activations to only those phones where the IMEI numbers are in their database.  If it didn't start life as a "Verizon phone", they refuse to activate it. Ironically, Verizon 5S/6/6+ iPhones (even on-contract iPhones) come factory unlocked and will work on basically any other...
