 Everyone I know that has one does put it in their pocket, at least the Galaxy Note 2. Assuming the sensor is something third parties can support, Apple's would have far greater impact by nature of the number of units that would ship with it which would greatly encourage 3rd party support. Unless Samsung makes an announcement that their sensor was going on all their phones and they would be immediately updated, I don't think it would have much of an impact on the...
  The lenses come with their own sensors. Did you not read the article or do you just not understand it?   -kpluck

  The problem is, the more they add to the AppleTV, the more the user interface shows its weaknesses. Of the icons that litter my Apple TV home screen, I only use 4 regularly. I really wish I could hide the ones I don't use, they are just pointless clutter. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.   For a company that has a reputation for UI design, I am amazed that the interface for the Apple TV is as bad as it is.   -kpluck
It would have been a huge mistake for Apple to try to keep its "culture" the same without Steve Jobs at helm. He was a unique individual and he ran the company in a unique way. If Tim Cook had taken over the job with the attitude of trying to run it "Steve's way" it simply wouldn't have worked.   That being said, the jury is still out on Tim Cook. Apple Maps in iOS 6 was a warning sign. It was troubling that he was so disconnected from a major new feature of iOS that...

  I disagree. I think the idea of making the edges thinner while losing a useful feature, the optical drive, was a great idea. Add to that, putting all the ports and the card reader on the back of the machine was inspired. It will take years for Apple's competition to adopt these ideas.   "But what about the Mac Mini" you say? Simple, make it even smaller and reduce its performance where possible. Oh, and don't neglect the awful keyboard and mouse, I am sure there are...
Hindsight is 20/20 with investment decisions, really? Who would have ever thought that? Hopefully scholars and historians are documenting this rare occurrence so that future generations will learn from it. -kpluck
This seems like a cheap way to lock yourself into Apple's eco-system. What a deal.
  Actually, it can make a lot of sense. By allowing the customer to download the data ahead of the actual launch, a lot of server congestion can be eliminated which it turn can greatly improve download speed for the user. I believe Steam works this way on big releases.   Speaking of which, given SteamPlay support, why would anyone by the Mac App Store version?   -kpluck
