I like the commercial - for all sorts of reasons, but I like the look, functionality and uniqueness of my real wood wrap more.  I've got both top and bottom wrapped with wood - not only does the Apple logo glow through the wood, but the wood (cherry in this case) changes over time, takes the abuse that the aluminum would normally take and doesn't effect the size of the MacBook Air I have it on.  
I think the reason people chide Amazon is because they seem to get preferential treatment from the investment community, especially compared to Apple.  So when Amazon gets hit by investors, Apple people feel like there is some justice happening.  Frankly, I feel the same way.  Apple gets punished when they make record profits because why?  Amazon, like Microsoft and even Google, seem to have a Wall Street following that likes when they lose money and show no real way...
Obviously BT headphones exist - I haven't used a wired headset in years, but Apple hasn't done anything wireless since their old BT unit, which was the best looking mono headset I've ever seen.  If Apple put some time and effort into a better wireless option for mono or stereo use, I'd be all over it and I don't think I'd be alone.  There are a lot of crummy BT headsets, mono and stereo, and they could use Apple's creative thinking to improve battery life and signal...
Apple needs to focus some attention on eliminating headphone wires altogether, although the lightning headphone jack is a step in the right direction.
I've gotten the connection of my iPhone 5s to my iMac (late 2012 21") for things like phone calls, but the email side and even Safari web handoff has not worked. That being said, this is most definitely a feature that is worth upgrading hardware for if you use your iPhone, iPad and Mac laptop or desktop for work. The seamless connectivity between devices makes way more sense than Microsoft's idea of trying to make a single device that is a jack of all trades, master of...
Given my Volvo's head unit is dying, this could be great timing. I'd love to replace the stock unit with one more integrated with my iP5s.
I would venture to guess that T-Mobile recognizes that Apple is likely to launch updated iPads soon and clearing the inventory makes sense at this point.  Although I have an Air, I'll reinvest to get a new one with Touch ID, as it was the one thing the iPad was lacking - made noticeable after getting the 5s and recognizing how great it is not to have to type in passwords all the time.
We should come back to this "news" release after Apple announces their numbers and see just how far off Gartner and IDC are.  Then watch how they both say that Apple is wrong about their numbers because they're not taking into account some mysterious losses that only they can track...
How about getting rid of the wires? In this age of wireless, I'm surprised Apple isn't working on a new bt headset. It's a market that has seen little innovation in my opinion, and one that could use Apple's prowess at battery management and aesthetic design.
Are you suggesting I'm a troll or agitator?  I firmly agree with DED on many, including this, editorial.  My point is that preaching to the choir is one thing and asking Gartner themselves why they're writing what they write does nothing to expose the truth.  Perhaps Daniel is trying to get big media to bite on his articles, but I've never seen his pieces anywhere outside of the mac-centric tech sites.
