maybe they could auction off suffixes and use the money to bail out spain (greece doesn't deserve it, but I feel bad for the spanish)
Have you seen the retina display on the new iPad? I find that it is even more noticeable for reading text than for video and pictures. And I presume you do read:-)
Die, die, die.... kill, kill, kill....    (just don't ask me to calculate Pi to the last digit...)
  Sounds plausible.    Regarding the Mac Pro (I own the 2009 version), I'm personally kind of glad to be spared the decision of whether to upgrade. But I think it was a mistake not to boost the current model up to contemporary Xeons, GPUs, and add thunderbolt. It seems like that would not have been too hard and would have satisfied a lot of people's needs.    I don't agree that Apple is "abandoning" pro users, but I think Apple is badly mishandling pro users.

I am getting the sense that Macs are close to infiltrating the company where I work. Most of the senior executives have Macs at home, and multiple new employees have requested them at work.

  Yeah, I suspect there are two reasons.   First, creative types make content, and content is absolutely vital to the success of Apple's consumer-oritented products. So it's good to make sure the creative types have good tools for making content for Apple platforms.    Second, it might be an indicator that Apple has plans for going after more "pro" class users, and consequently wants to keep their hand in the game of making pro apps, to make sure their OS and tools...
Encouraging sign for all pro users, not just music folks, in that this is an indication that Apple still cares about Pro users.
