  IMO, it's because the marketing around the Surface makes the cover a big selling point. The ads focus on the cover a lot, so it builds the expectation that it is part of the device. Then you see a starting price of $499, (possibly) get excited, then see the 'real' starting price for what you were shown is actually $599. There's a disconnect there that TechCrunch is pointing out
To be honest, this looks really desirable at first glance (or on the 'surface' heh), but I'm so weary about how well it'll be executed. On the hardware side, I wonder how well the tactile feedback will be on that cover, how much wear it can take, or how dirty it'll get. As for performance, I like to see how it stacks up in terms of battery life etc. Looks great as a concept, but can't wait to see how well it actually does.   Seeing this is the price for RT tablets,...
Is this in fact a retina MacBook Air? or will it not have the wedge shape for a bigger battery?

He's in Toronto so I'd figure we have more people wanting to buy than anywhere else in the country (you know, centre of the universe and all). So are people getting their phones some other way, or is supply actually that problematic? Like the article says the demand should be...
Nexus S is the second Nexus phone, the GNex is the Galaxy Nexus the 3rd phone, which should have had more sales

Each may not need an announcement on their own, but together it gives Apple another opportunity to do one of the things it does best: Marketing. Any Apple event gets lots of coverage. Speculation before, coverage of, and reviews and analysis afterwards. It's one of the important clogs in the Apple machine. That said, they can easily turn an iPad Mini announcement into a big enough event of its own
So much for the Oct. 10 expected invitation date: http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/10/01/apple-rumored-to-send-out-ipad-mini-event-invitations-on-oct-10     Now awaiting stories from "trusted sources" that say there was a delay or change in design, etc, etc and Apple won't sell as many as they had forecast this quarter. They'll push the stock down so they can buy in.
Hoarders are preparing to hoard as many as possible for resale after launch day. Music to their ears  
  keyword in my statement is "all", i'm certainly very happy if Apple makes a ton of money
not ^ again... the door is over there >
