Elon "I put all our patents in the public domain" Musk might not be culturally compatible with Apple.
"According to Apple, Wagner will juggle responsibilities at the Cupertino company while continuing..."   Somehow I doubt that's how Apple characterized this.
Huh? Why would I need to go to a store to add money to my iTunes account? Is this just for people without credit cards?
I think you're confusing Apple with Google.  Apple is the company who implemented biometrics with specific controls to keep everything encrypted on the device and completely at the option of, and under the control of, the user.
This will be an excellent way to guard against (or at least retroactively detect) mind control or possession. But the alerts should probably go to a loved one or the authorities instead of the compromised individual.
Probably not a coincidence that this was announced in the middle of Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference http://www.digitalwpc.com/Pages/Home.aspx   This will likely be the talk of that conference tomorrow.
Anyone know how many employees Apple has (to compare to MS's 130,000)?
What article did you read?  I see 4 paragraphs that lay out some facts about the size of MS's workforce and some reports that thousands of them are due to be let go--after pointing out that 30,000 were added recently as part of an acquision.  Where is the hyperbole and fact statements?
Exactly.  I expect that Pixar changed Jobs as much as he changed Pixar.  The Jobs-Apple story would not have been the same if there were no Jobs-Pixar story.
Most of the watches I own have sapphire crystal faces.  It's hardly a stretch to assume that, in addition to serving as touch ID covers, sapphire will be used on the (eventual) "iWatch" (which I hope is called something else).  I don't really care is my next iPhone or iPad has a sapphire or gorilla glass or transparently aluminum screen.  Scratching has never been a problem on my Apple devices.
