...Because "first to market" is definitely the way to achieve long term success - especially for a product whose value proposition is a mystery to the majority of consumers. I've been thinking for quite some time now that MS can't get any further out of touch, but they keep proving me wrong.
"beats is known for their premium headphones..." No, actually there is pretty much consensus that they suck.
"The presence of the banner seems to confirm that Apple will indeed unveil iOS 8 during next week's Worldwide Developers Conference." -Was this really something that anyone was unsure about?
Hopefully he will spell "design" correctly on his profile with Apple. His current bio lists him as the "Senior Desing Engineer"

Ya gotta love highly-posed photos that are intended to look organic. I can almost hear the photographer giving them instructions (in a British accent, of course) - "Okay, here's your motivation: look relaxed, but really intense...great, now look concerned, but the kind of concerned where you don't really give a shit...perfect!
