First off - the new MacBook can be used by professionals, just not by professional photographers or videographers for photo/video editing. For example, for network engineers, who have been preferring Macs over PCs by a sizable majority for a number of years now, this new MacBook is more than sufficient, and it has one great advantage - it's extremely light. If Apple could put 16 GB of RAM in this new MacBook, I would buy it in a heartbeat. I do need to run desktop...
You are not going to lose your pictures if there's a hard drive crash in the cloud. There are all sorts of redundant storage implemented in iCloud. However, it's mo guarantee that you are not going to lose some or all of your pictures. One example that comes to mind is if your account is hacked. Another one is if you make a mistake and accidentally delete a certain photo. I would suggest making a copy of your library and keeping it off site.
The absence of Googe Maps on Car Play hinders the adoption of Car Play. I'm in the market for a new vehicle, and my initial requirement was integrated Car Play. However, I think I'm dropping this requirement because I will have to continue to use Google Maps on my iPhone. Dynamic re-routing based on live traffic conditions as well as lane guidance - there's no way I would sacrifice these two features. Apple is shooting themselves in the foot by blocking Google Maps on Car...
Are women near extinction that Apple doesn't need to bother addressing that market?
If the CIA cracks the encryption, some university professor in Stanford will invent a new encryption protocol that will be orders of magnitude more secure. This is an old game that spy agencies have been engaged in for centuries. It would be much more troubling if the FSB were working on cracking the AES based encryption, which I'm sure they are, because we would not know for many years if they have cracked it and continued utilizing it as though it were still uncracked. 
First of all, I'm not whining. I would rather Apple bring order to the software and its functionality and interoperability between the two platforms and iCloud than continue to develop four applications that do not interoperate or sync very well. So, I'm actually in favor of streamlining the work flow even at the expense of discontinuing Aperture.Secondly, until Photos for iOS is released and iCloud Photos comes out of beta on iOS, I'm not going to enable this feature. I...
What will happen to the photos that I take on an iPhone? Will those photos stay on the iPhone as full-resolution images or will they be uploaded to iCloud and replaced with thumbnails? 
I was just so sad when Apple discontinued iPhoto for iOS. I was wondering why they developed iPhoto for iOS just a few years earlier to drop it like a hot potato last year. There seem to have been two teams at Apple that worked on the photo management/editing apps and the infrastructure that supported it. With iPhoto for iOS vs Photos, there were two incompatible ways to publish web albums, two ways to transfer pictures over Wi-Fi between the iOS device and the Mac, two...
This is circa 1974-1980. I owned one of those back in the day. It is basically a Fiat 124 assembled in Togliatti (Tolyati), the Soviet Union. Mine stayed in the family and lasted for 35 years. It's a classic.
