I highly doubt that Apple is selling anything that they are losing money on. Breaking even as a tool to get more folks invested in the iTunes ecosystem, perhaps. But not flat out selling at a loss. They can afford to but I just don't see it happening. Or if they are losing money it's not more than a few cents a unit.
 Guess it never occurred to you that they are releasing in the Fall because that is when the product is ready. They don't control the time tables at all the suppliers, they have to work around that. 
"It should be noted that the publication is notorious for being the source of numerous Apple-related rumors, many of which turn out to be incorrect." That is all I need to see. This is likely totally wrong as most DigiTimes things are. They are unlikely to put Retina in the Air. More likely they won't and the Air will become the new MacBook and the Pro will eventually be just the Retina models.
All of iTunes needs better metadata and searching. There should not be things like mixing up books by two artists with similar names. Especially when one does grade school art how to books and the other is erotica
 In some cases you are correct that parents need to be responsible. Which is why some refund requests have been refused. Like the UK guy whose 13 year old racked up almost 4000 pounds in game IAP over about six months. It was clear from the timing that it wasn't a case of Daddy downloaded a game etc. The kid knew the password and likely what he was doing. Dad wasn't looking at his credit card bills or apparently his email to see the receipts. Until he got a call from the...
Them: But the iPad is a toy. It can't be used for 'real work'. Me:
This war only seems to exist with bloggers. Page fodder perhaps. Apple certainly isn't 'at war'. Which is why they haven't rushed to at least announce things. They have been very clear over the years this isn't a zero sum game to them and they aren't afraid of other companies plans, products or wins. Oh and Android Wear has hardly had millions of sales so I'm not sure it qualifies as 'significant opposition' at this time. Same with the rest
I suspect that #music fell victim to the same thing that Ping did. It was set up and then ignored. Ping had great potential coming off Lala.com but Apple didn't finish it off. If they had extended it to the full bank of music, even directors, actors etc, gotten the whole 'share playlists with other users' and so on from Lala actually going it could have been huge. But they launched a few labeled artists and nothing.
Hashtags aren't the issue. Hashtag abuse is. If you don't use them well then they don't work. Things like putting tons of hashtags, making up your own, etc. Tumblr is the best place to see some hideous hashtag abuse.But if they were used well they could be a powerful tool for doing searches etc. Like when libraries started cataloging books etc and released they needed a common language for subject headings and consistent name entries for authors etc. Libraries took it a...
I suspect the 12 inch thing is off but the rest could be the next round of MBA. I think that they will go for the retina as the only line of pros with the air becoming the 'MacBook'. Since it won't be a Pro machine they can keep to the lower processors etc to focus the line on light users and the fan less thing would be less of an issue than if it was someone who was editing a 4k film etc
