"This is the Post-PC world." I know a guy who went to CES. He calls all those cheap connected watches and other gadgets "disposable electronics." Perfect description.
 I think the real issue is that Phil Schiller said that the Mac Pro would ship in 2013 when he introduced it during the WWDC keynote.   Then at the "iPad Air event" in October, he promised that it would be available for purchase by the end of December.  So Apple was forced to build just a few pre-production models for sale to customers (in addition to media review units) long before production is ramped up enough for volume sales. It's just tough timing.  If the new Mac...
 Boom.  NFC is officially dead.

Just a matter of time before Apple kills of jailbreaking once and for all. Looking forward to it.
