 And so you did – although it's "prestidigitation", and I think the word you actually want is "prognostication". (Then again, my usual form of communication is sub-Neanderthal grunting. Never mind me. : ) 
 But it sounds like you don't. Even with no difference at all in internals and functionality, a solid gold body means a huge price differential. No surprise there at all. I know, it may sound like a poor value to you or me or anyone who doesn't really care what metal the body is made of. But for anyone (and I understand this may not be you) who's dismayed and angered by Apple (presumably) offering a $5K or $10K watch, I say this: Yes, Apple's demanding a small fortune for...
 Shh. Don't give Jony ideas.
 I hope that's meant as an odd joke. Because attributing to "Tim Cook and Apple generally these days" a feature introduced by Steve Jobs in 2004 would be... well, about the norm for Apple-related comments these days, actually. : ( 
 Good point. I really like the new iMac and would love to own one, but there are additional pros and cons that aren't in this article. No surprise that Ars Technica would be the place to get the full story. (I can appreciate a simple summary-style overview too, as AI offers here, but I have to say: I didn't have high expectations for this review after seeing the incredibly lazy "Mac faithful" in the first sentence.)

One comment: "Those people who incessantly bitched about Apple "neutering" iWork should humbly eat their words..." Well, as big an iWork fan as I am, I'd not necessarily blast all such complaints. If the new iWork suddenly dropped some favorite features, an honest complaint of "Hey, this $&#@ new version dropped some favorite features!" is just being, well, honest (and human : ). There really wasn't any warning from Apple about the losses, either, and that's not a good...
Not necessarily. Like everywhere else, Japan runs primarily on Windows PCs.
 Er, smart shoppers anywhere value honor, craftsmanship, and beauty. Nothing "Japanese people" about it. And here in Tokyo, there are plenty of people with big Samsung or similar phones. There are DoCoMo phones everywhere - which, until recently, were everything but iPhones. Samsung, LG, plenty of Japanese makes. There are all kinds of phones in people's hands on the trains: some pretty nice smartphones, lots of Samsung-y creaky plastic models, and still a fair showing of...
