Same for me - but you have to ask yourself, "who cares?"  I know the bridge doesn't flow down into the valley and I don't need to see it perfectly.
The Mini when paired with a TB Display does give you the ability to update/upgrade the computer while keeping the monitor (and keyboard and mouse/trackpad) as opposed to having to ditch the iMac entirely if you want to upgrade to a new processor (for example). But based upon the slow refresh cycle, chances are good that you may be ready for a new monitor by the time an update hits on the Mini.
The world is a better place because of Steve.  We all play a part, for sure, but Steve definitely figured out how to push people to think differently - for the better.
First of all, who really thinks of Microsoft being connected to music? It was and still is Apple that made the connection between music and computers/iPods (iPod being the Kleenex of music players). Microsoft is late to the game and misguided in what they're doing trying to use "artists" like this bozo to bring people into their stores. Maybe they should try getting their hardware manufacturing "partners" to step up and start making products that people want to buy -...
It's tough for companies like Nokia (and RIM) to compete against the likes of Apple when they lack the "think different" mentality that is required to push forward with new products that consumers want. Google and their Android partners have been more successful because much of what they started with was driven by Apple's original design. The partnership with Microsoft was a differentiation point (away from both Apple and the ever increasing Android driven market) and...
It's obvious that iOS Maps isn't at the same level as Google's mapping, but I too find it hard to believe that it's a crushing blow to Apple. They made a decision to move away from Google and I applaud that - they'll fix the issues with Maps and even if they didn't, as others have noted there are plenty of mapping apps for people to choose from. I also find it strange that people seem to rely on maps so much. Are people really traveling to unknown places this much?
It would be interesting to know whether the amount they "stocked" for launch was limited by Apple's own guidance or manufacturing.
Another couple of years of Vzw customers thinking they're not missing anything. And being told they're not missing anything.
Apple has every right to apply for patents on anything they create. In fact, I'd say it's their responsibility to do so in order to protect the value of their investment (in IP, people, resources). If you don't agree with their getting patents from USPTO, then it's your right to reach out to the USPTO to challenge the patents. And if you think Apple is overstepping their applying for, and getting patents granted, you're clearly not following the sheer number of patents...
The thing about the agreement is, as for now at least, that the manufacturers adopted one technology that might have been great (not that micro USB is great) 2 years ago, but times change.  Apple, being Apple, has to look at micro USB connectors and say they look like crap and have issues over time with their general functioning (I know those I have for my BT headsets end up not working as the tabs start wearing down).  Just like with so many other aspects of the user...
