 No, instead, Apple chooses to make excellent laptops, that are designed to support the way they are actually used. It's not all about 'pushing boundaries"- thats not the goal. The goal is to make an excellent product, pushing boundaries is merely a means to an end. Unfortunately, this goal is beyond the ability of most of these OEMs, so instead, they focus on the gimmicks and pretend thats the goal. 
http://www.extremetech.com/computing/192893-the-first-core-m-laptop-paints-a-depressing-mediocre-picture-for-intels-broadwell      Wow, sounds like a fucking winner. Where do I sign up?? What's farcical is comparing this poorly designed, poorly performing, mess of a machine with the impeccably balanced Macook Air- regardless of some individual, superior spec figures. But hey, it folds into weird positions and shit, so carry on!
The avalanche of Apple Pay support continues (with Banks/CC companies advertising Apple Pay for free), Apple's stock price is just about to hit $110 ($770 pre-split), and Apple's position in the marketplace has never been stronger. Apple is right now the strongest it has ever been in its entire history, with barely any weak points, and those that exist being filled up quickly (ie. cloud features, OS extensibility, device options, etc)   With Christmas sales coming up,...
 Talk about ignorance..especially for someone with 5,000 posts. 
 Nope. The only "fundamental value" that Apple has is to make excellent products. Everything else more specific for that is dynamic, and subject to change if that's called for. You also stated that Apple would never produce a "phablet" phone that doesnt fit in the hand, because that was also a "fundamental value". No, it wasn't.  If they can get OSX to work reasonably well with touch input, then it will happen. The UI in Yosemite is already alot more touch friendly, as are...
 Uh, yeah, noone assumed he was talking about Steve the whole time. This article was about that specific portion of the interview, so obviously the relevant quote will be highlighted. Regardless of what else he says about other topics, it's fair to comment on that quote. 
 Yeah, you should tell them to send you hourly updates on exactly what they're doing. Cause obviously if you don't know what they're doing, that means they're not doing anything. I guess Apple also does nothing the entire year, outside of their keynotes, either. 
 There was literally zero details of the potential service in what he said. All it does is create hype. That's not always a bad thing. I doubt any NDAs were broken. Apple has remained strong at keeping secrets about the things that actually matter, ie. software features. We hadn't heard a blip of 95% of what they showed @ WWDC. 
 My point is that touch can exist along side a KB+Mouse with OSX. It's really not that far-fetched, and it would be silly to doubt Apple's powers of execution. I would think by now you wouldn't be so quick to confidently discount these possibilities, when you've been wrong so many times about what Apple might and might not do. If they do it, they'll do it right. 
 Christ. For the astute observer, Yosemite is ALOT more touch friendly than Mavericks. It's not out of the question that OSX might work with touch input in the future, of course along with keyboard and mice. Apple will never force you to ONLY use touch input on OSX, but its not that far of a leap to have touch input as an option if it is running along with iOS on some kind of future device.
