 Don't forget the kickstand.  The watch that can replace your Laptop.
There's a dairy farm near my house that has a white plastic iPad stand with CC-swiper (like an iMac stand, with a real iPad as the "screen"), as their POS system.  The last time we were there it was an all-cash operation, now they have the simple and effective way to sell. Really good question by afalkner.  ApplePay for some Milk that's only hours-old, with the moo-ing in the background.I love what Apple does for society.  1-song instead of 1-album, (.....a whole bunch of...
 I prefer when Paper Money goes from someone else's hand INTO my hand.If I get enough of it, I'll get the Watch.  Oops.  Topic-contamination.
The executive decisions are the same as they've always been, "What's best for the CUSTOMER", not the conglomerate or business partner. Do you like buying 1 song instead of buying a whole album?  Where'd that come from? Apple re-makes ENTIRE INDUSTRIES in the CUSTOMERs benefit. Even personal opinions should be made in context.
 I almost spit out some coffee laughing while reading this.  Just let that image sink in:  Sleek iPhone 6,.....with a big honkin' 3.5" drive glued on.I remember the first digital camera I ever used (borrowed).  It had a 3.5" floppy drive for storage, and I thought it was AWESOME because it had "unlimited storage".  I think I used it to take pix of my new 2001 vehicle, so that was the time-frame. 5-to-10 seconds between taking each little 640x480 JPG, and so happy to have...
 The truth of this made me all itchy just reading it. I need some i-Benadryl.
 Huge Apple fan, but I worry about this too.  We have two 4Ss.  I was very disappointed with iOS7 since on iOS4, 5, and 6, the interface disappeared as Jony always said Apple products do.  Flawless, liquid, and invisible.But with iOS7 I became aware due to the OS-stutters and apps crashes.   Isn't that what we laugh at with Android?Now it's not getting some inputs, and is generally "haunted". iOS8 makes this bad behavior better, or worse?  It's sad to have to ask that...
 I wonder if the pairing process between Phone & Watch entails a TouchID press, then the two become "married" at the sub-atomic level of TouchID.  Hmmmm.I'm geeking out big time about the watch.  I was STARING at Apple's watch-pages.  I had the same urges that my six year old would have if I held ice cream in front of her face but wouldn't give it to her.  Embarrassing Confession:  I could feel how much I wanted to have it. It was the same with the very fist iPod Nano.  I...
 My mother-in-law (72yrs), LOVEs her iPhone 5S.  Loves it. She doesn't know about actual Apps and has never downloaded one.  All her "Apps" are actually Safari shortcuts that have little icons like apps (I didn't even know you could do that since I use apps and hardly use Safari, esp favorites).She wasn't even using her own WiFi at home and was running near her 2GB limit. I got her to sign on to her own WiFi at home, and of course her data usage is back to nil. "only" 16GB...
Is it too soon to ask about Min-Sys-Reqts to run Yosemite?   I was pleasantly surprised when our early-2009 Al-Macbook (the 6-month window of Aluminum-but-not-Pro [no sD slot]), could run Mavericks.  Core 2 Duo.   I'm imagining it will be (fairly) cut off from Yosemite.   How about a late 2009 27" iMac (the first 27", core i7).  That should get Yosemite, yes?
