Beat me to it.  I have two Macs upgraded but I cannot find where they hide the build number.
This is why I have several Macs in the house.  I can afford to "guinea pig" a couple. Installing now...
LOL.  An old computer still have usefulness as long as Apple doesn't obsolete them. :)
I've got a 105 MB/sec connection to Comcast.  It's coming in pretty good....should be done in 3 mins (40% done now).   After that, I have a number of household Macs to upgrade.  Oldest are the 2008 Mac Pro I'm typing on and my 2007 Macbook Pro which is an iTunes and file server in the house.  Newest is my wife's 2013 MBAir.  Two more utility MacBooks are in the house too, 2009 vintage.  This will take awhile.   EDIT:  OK, it's finished.  Time to distribute to the...
Not there yet...still throwing errors on download. Update after 2 minutes....there's the download!
I don't think we disagree on much here.  I was only pointing out the merits of sog's post, not making a commentary about his previous posts which is what you were clearly thinking about. As far as the whole insider trading thing, we've all seen the timeline of events.  It may be clearly nothing.  But I can state that the timeline alone would trigger an informal investigation by the SEC.  I had a friend of mine actually prosecuted for insider trading some years back on much...
Actually sog35 is pretty close to the mark.  The CEO is going to have to face insider trading allegations, and they have certainly prosecuted people for far less.  He's in serious trouble, both from the SEC and from his investors.  None of the allegations currently filed in bankruptcy court looks like it would hold merit on first blush.  As had been said before, it's not like Tim Cook put a gun to his head (or their board of directors).  They entered into an agreement to...
 Bingo.  When it comes to major Apple products, any news in the rumor mill can cause stock price swings affecting market cap in the billions of dollars.  And it tips off competitors to Apple's plans, often leading to them rushing to add features before Apple.  A few other smartphone manufacturers are doing sapphire screens now, not because they really believe in it or have gotten the costs in line, but solely because they know Apple is going to do it given what's already...
He was the first to spot it? It was published on Apple's website the day of the announcement. Yes, it's sort of something you'd miss, but I imagine most people who scanned the page saw it. H.265 compatibility is not a huge surprise...the Samsung S4 has had an early version for months now, but the iPhone 6 having it means that Apple will likely start encoding content to it for that device's consumption. I imagine that future iPads and Apple TVs will get this feature...
The other thing is that Apple's page is directing the general public to watch the announcement live tomorrow. I can't think of the last time that's happened. Usually the live events get enough buzz without it, and Apple certainly posts the replays on the main site. Apple is making sure that a wide audience is going to hear about this one.
