I guess that explains why I still haven't been able to download iOS 8 for my iPad. I've been trying since yesterday. Finally got it on the iPhone, though.
I think that for consumers it is going to be a learning process that takes time. But once that process is complete, I think that more people will value the greater privacy and security provided by Apple ecosystem. And by then it will be too late for google -- their reputation will be set.In a sense, Apple is making a long-term investment here. They are giving up some marketshare in the short run as they wait for consumers to go through this learning process. It is just...
It has more GPU power than I need. I really just need one GPU to drive the display. Nothing I do takes advantage of GPGPU stuff. 
I have a dream.... an iMac with that resolution, a GPU fully capable of driving it, and an 8 core i7.  The first two parts of my dream will almost certainly come true by the end of 2015 (hopefully sooner). The last part might never come true (sigh... poor me).

Instead, I have a desktop at home (iMac) desktop at work (Mac Pro) and when I'm mobile I use a combination of my iPhone and iPad, and I only use them for activities that do not require a bunch of typing. I guess I'm fortunate that I can structure my work and life so that this is feasible for me. My sympathy to people who cannot. 
I'm not a teacher, but my mother and sister are, and I do research in education about the effectiveness of various interventions/programs, including technology. So.... speak for yourself. 
 So true. The only thing they've got going for them is that they can claim to be truly platform agnostic, while Apple, Microsoft, and Google will always be suspect in that regard.   Personally, though, I won't trust 1 TB of files to a company that is small enough to be bought out by Google.
