It's a slight bummer that they'd like to charge for service calls post-warranty, when quality products do last longer. That said, it's not like they aren't perfectly willing to waive that for good reason, i.e., old machine but new OS, etc.   It's also a slight bummer that Communities seem utterly anemic now - used to be you'd always get a response, but, personally I haven't, on my last 5-6 questions at least...of course, I might be asking boring questions...   But...
Maybe just smeared numbering, like on The White Album?
I understand and agree with your point about market manipulation.Still, in a pretty meaningful way, most of Apple's product releases in the past 12-13 years have been "intro devices", including Watch.  For the simple reason that, while there already were watchesand fitness trackers, etc., Apple has created a functionality and a methodology that almostmake putting it into an established category silly.  They don't just stand on existing shoulders, they leap imaginatively...
I'm determined to wait patiently for Windows 9...seems like the safest way.
He seems to be trying so hard to "think different".
Some years ago, when purchasing a MacBook for a daughter, we bought that for her, to ensure she could get help with somevideo-related & other issues...but no, i don't think she ever used it after all...but that was in the good old days when you could always 'intuit' your way through pretty much anything - not all of us are up to that, these days, and, if I were purchasing a new iMac, I might have purchased it for various iTunes, iPhotos, iCloud & Family Sharing issues I...

To me, the common sense assumption might seem to be that black hats will be figuring it out and/orhearing about it fairly quickly, anyway...it's what they do, after all...but maybe they're preoccupied instead.
If you tell the public first, aren't you telling the company/author at the same time? I can't see why it's a bad thing to tell everyone as soon as possible,  unless you think it would spoil the tea and crumpets, gentleman's handshake atmosphere we all expect in tech...
This isn't a problem you can solve in the endgame, having previously ensured that only a privileged class is likely to be "most qualified".  And, as such, it isn't even just an educational issue, but a societal one.   Fundamentally equal education can't only be available to some economic classes, some colors, some countries, one gender (some genders?).   And once it isn't, the problem of hiring the best, AND hiring with diversity at the same time, solves itself.
