Apple: "We are not in the business of collecting your data." (Eddy Cue, 9/9/2014)   Google: [nervous fidgeting, crickets chirping ...]
 You are Google's product, and Google's advertisers are their customers.97% of Google's revenue comes from ads.  Never forget that.  Google certainly doesn't. And now they're rolling out free Wi-Fi in San Francisco, so they can "cross reference" userswho don't even have Google accounts.  Vastly more efficient datamining, while pretendingthat they're "helping" people.  What a bunch of weasels.
 Because Apple can.  That's why. Why would Chinese citizens pay $2500 or more for black market iPhone 6 Plus (in gold) before they officially go on sale? Because they can.  That's why.
Show of hands. Who here still thinks that Apple needs to build a super-cheap-ass phone for China? Yeah. Didn't think so.
18K Rose Gold Mac Pro: WANT!!!
 That would be for the Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch model lines.There is no way the Apple Watch Edition will be less than $1000.I'd expect it to start at about $2000.  Because raw gold is about $1200 an ounce.And yes, I'd expect Apple to have a trade-in program so users can upgrade every year or two(at a reduced cost.)
Welcome to the Race To The Bottom (tm). (No, not *that* bottom, Evilution. LOL.)
Meanwhile, Samsung's stock is at a 2-year low:   http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-23/samsung-at-two-year-low-lures-templeton-global-funds.html   Yup.  Samsung is almost in full-on panic mode.
Bullet?  No. Marshmallow?  Maybe.
