*yawn*If Samsung has proved anything, is that they're very good at putting out garbage with lipstick.  If PayPal wants to partner-up with a loser-company like Samsung, be my guest.  I have zero intention of using PayPal once ApplePay is up and running.Five bucks that PayPal with dump Samsung the first chance it gets.
Why?  Apple doesn't normally raise the prices on their iMacs.  Unless they decide to introduce a "r-iMac" model completely separate from the others, then that's a different story.Apple makes the good stuff available for the masses.  If anyone can bring the prices down, it'll be them.  Crossing my fingers...While I've been itching to replace my aging 2009-iMac, I think I will wait for the next-gen Broadwell CPU next year.  Then, I'll have my wish-list fulfilled.
Apple/Google/OtherBigCorp have been paying taxes they are LEGALLY OBLIGATED to pay.  Is that concept beyond your comprehension?
If this is just the EU's way of trying to dip its hand into the cookie jar, I hope Ireland gives them EU a big FU.   Apple did nothing illegal and paid whatever taxes it was obligated to pay.  If Ireland did something illegal, well that is something entirely different, and expecting a company (like Apple) or others to pay taxes for stuff back in time is highly questionable to say the least. Sounds like the EU is just having a hissy-fit.
It's clear that Apple didn't want to create too big a pool of iPhones.  However, I think it would have been nice if they created a 4" iPhone 6.  Just like the crowd that clamored for a phablet phone, there obviously was a huge market for the 4" model.  To me, using it with one hand (and I have big hands) was a big plus. I can use the iP6 with one hand with "almost" no problem, something that extended use would probably make a non-issue.  I am leaning to the 6+ simply...
What the hell Apple?  I expect this sh!t from any Android handset, but not from you.  This better not be the new norm in town.  Get your act together!
Because jackasses believe it's always better to blame someone else for their own stupidity than to accept that they should not treat piece of sensitive electronics like it's a slab of solid diamond.Unbelievable the amount of whining there is about this.  It's a non-issue.  
While I think it's rude what the Chinese scalpers are doing, and my taking away inventory from folks that live in that area... technically, they are not doing anything illegal.  How many U.S. folks are taking their iPhones on day 1 and putting them on EBay?  Sure, it would be nice to have the lines populated by direct fans, but it is what it is.  What next?  Make sure the buyers can speak clear English before allowing them to buy an iPhone?
I'm happy to know that VirnetX got smacked, it's not like Apple really "won" anything yet.  The verdict was tossed due to technicalities of the trial, not really about any substance of the alleged infringement.  So basically, it goes back to square-one to go through it all over again... Samsung style. I do hope VirnetX get's the hammer dropped on its head.  They surely deserve it.  Trolls.
I don't get it.  To the regular-joe, they may not necessarily realize that Samsung is making fun of Apple.  I could easily interpret this commercial as Samsung insulting themselves and coming across that its their own watch that is actually stupid.  I think they shot themselves in the foot. And one has to wonder why their sales are declining...
