yup obviously going to build cars there.   Global command center, yeah right. 
I tried Nokia Here maps once on my iPhone. Wasn't impressed; I'd expected the app to be mediocre, and it was, but what surprised me is how bad the map data was. Let Uber have it, even though Uber shouldn't have $3Bn... 
Money will be made with this... Apple Watch really is the ultimate cheating device with its vibration feedback.  As for chess, I lost all interest when computers got better than grandmasters. Grandmasters, at this point, should compete by designing better computer programs - my program vs. yours!  That said, people still enjoy the sport so let them. They'll have to come up with pretty sophisticated anti-cheating measures. But sports don't necessarily have to die just...
i am already thinking of ways I can justify buying one - I have a  rMBP 15". Mainly I'd miss the additional screen real estate. I run in 1920x1200 virtual pixels and it's nice. Instead of focusing on this new MacBook's drawbacks, let's see why people would buy it:- Looks gorgeous- Not too expensive- Looks so good it makes all other notebooks look bad, even older Macs- Vast majority of people does not need a ton of processing power, does not even know what sort of processor...
I don't know this is quite possibly the best marketing campaign I've ever seen.   I can't recall any marketing materials in recent history I wanted to see. I can't recall any I'd recommend to friends over social media either. This is sheer genius.    It's also the best response to Samsung's S6 camera comparisons. The S6 says "see, how this crap shot is a little less crap if you had an S6" (I don't believe this for a second but ok - it's marketing). The Apple ad...
I disagree. Samsung Pay will be totally secure. Because nobody will use it, and it will be DOA.  Seriously what reason would there be to have a me-too service like that? Samsung will probably pay off a few companies to trial it, then they'll realize still nobody is using it, and then nobody will talk about it anymore. Like 99% - or is it 100% - of all the "S" features. If Google bakes some sort of payment system into Android, it'll probably take off. Didn't follow it but I...
SPay is crap agreed. No way these are going to cost more than the iPhone 6 though. If they do, Samsung can pretty much forget about it. I bet they'll come in a teeny tiny bit lower than an iPhone 6. Like $50 - $100 off at the same configuration. 
 That, or something like it. I don't know about the time line, when they opened the patents and so on; but at some point Elon decided that more players in the E-car business are good for Tesla. So no matter what he'd welcome Apple building their own car, and given how close these two companies are physically it would make good sense to collaborate on some things. They're already kinda collaborating by hiring each other's engineers... 
^ yeah people keep saying that Apple should buy Tesla, and the main reasons are, let me summarize, 1 - Tesla is very cool (and we all agree) 2 - Elon is very cool and most importantly 3 - Apple has the money. Well those are not very good reasons. Really it boils down to "because they can"   Tesla opened their patents so anyone is free to use the tech - Elon wants competition so the E-car market takes off sooner, as he never tires of saying. So Apple creating their own...
They're training neural networks for the self driving car. The way neural networks work is that you train them with lots and lots of data, and a desired outcome, then they generalize and learn to apply it to new situations. Ok, that was the most out there thing I could come up with.   All those crazy sensors gotta be for something, maps don't need them...
