The most interesting thing here to me is the claimed power savings.  The more I use my iPad mini the more I've realized I prefer it in size and weight to the regular iPad.  The one thing that would make it better - and the next logical upgrade - is a retina display.  I don't know if that's possible right now because current battery technology would require a larger/heavier battery; eliminating one of the most appealing aspects of the mini. Perhaps the IGZO displays would...
Very interesting interview both for the news about the Mac line production in the US and his last statement about what Jobs said to Cook before his death. 
  Testimonies from repressed workers living in a society lacking basic freedoms like freedom of the press?  Sorry, but those testimonies don't pass the smell test.   "The beatings will continue until morale improves!"
  I think QC depends on the product. For electronics, the Chinese do a very good job as do Americans. I wouldn't really put one over the other.  As for your idea that QC might be superior in China it should be noted that many of their processes have American origins (TQM, Six Sigma, etc.)
  Enjoy the work they do?  Didn't know you spoke for the hundreds of thousands of Chinese workers there.  Are you in good with Brazilians too? How do they like it?  Tell me more! ;)
  From Apple's website: "Or add more memory to the 27-inch model yourself by popping open the easy-to-access memory panel on the back."   Yes, I'm aware you can remove the front panel on the 21.5" but that is not something most consumers are willing to tackle nor should they have to. And sure, Apple is in business to make money.  I work at a Fortune 50 company...I get it.  But I'm also responsible for balancing what we charge with the value we provide.  If we don't, our...
  I think you meant that it's "not" possible to install more RAM on the 21.5".  Only the 27" allows it.  Why is simple, to induce customers to order their more expensive computer.  While I don't have the data to back it up I'm almost sure the highest selling iMac has always been the 21.5" with the minimum amount of RAM.  Customers were wise to Apple's overpriced memory configurations and intended to install it on their own for a quarter of the price.  So, Apple's gotten...
P.S.  To those that find nothing lacking in the new iMac's, that's great.  I have no problem with that whatsoever.  But please stop telling those that don't like some of the omissions that their concerns are somehow invalid.
  Yet here we have the longest whine of them all.  But then, that's basically what these forums are, aren't they?  Someone says something critical of Apple, often valid, and then the nut bags come out full force with multiple posts "whining" about others whining.  And this post is one of the worst offenders I've seen by far.  sflocal's answer is to never critique Apple and just take what they give you.  Sure, YOU don't use a DVD burner (neither do I) but why isn't it...
  Ironic...the company that sells actual apples can't have a name that sounds like that word because a computer maker named "Apple" doesn't like it.  Enough with the lawsuits Apple.  It makes you look petty.  Fire some of your lawyers before they run the place.
