  Problem with Windows 8 is they force feed the touch interface to a bunch of people who dont like innovation. They should had made the interface optionnal. They have corrected that but it may be too late. That being said, touch interface are here to stay and it will spill to the desktop to a point where OS without them will feel severely outdated.
To me the mac laptops are far from perfect. For all the models that dont have a GPU, at least the new intel chips will be strong enough to drive the 13" rMBP and allow to build rMBA. But that is intel innovation, not apple. If Apple only upgrade the CPU and the cameras, that would mean they didnt innovate anything in year. I would like to see OS-X borrow the new iOS touch interface (optionnal mode) so they can build touch screen models that turn into tablets. Onthe...
  Yep. Lets hope she is wrong because what she announced is just tasteless incremental upgrades. 
  Yep!  getting rid of the home button would be a nice move indeed. An entire screen that react both to touch and/or physical press/release. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2419720,00.asp .  In the rare events the device completly crash, there is still the power button to reboot.
  Yes. Better use of there money than investing it at 2% and paying 35% of the interest to the US. They are making there own subsidies by financing the phone themselves.   Using the same formula, I think a phone especially design for emerging markets would have a even greater succes than old iphones. We will see soon enough what Apple will do in the coming months.
  Thats because most of the paid apps in iOS are free on Android.  Dev's relay on ads, but Google must be taking a decent cut on all the ads. But of course, with Android gaining in volume the dev's income is going to rise on that platform.   this is why I keep pounding that Apple should release low end tablets and phones, for the ecosystem critical mass.
  Well, if we bring the "non adecnotal" sales numbers or market shares, you will reject them too.  I think some people here are just in pure denial of evidence coming from all fronts. BTW I travel pretty often and work in a environment that is favorable in gaging those kind of "trends".
  omg I made a good point at last. Can I frame this?
  One of many example: http://www.lyncmigration.com/news/2012/10/17/6656503.htm   IGZO advantages: http://www.display-central.com/subscription-news/editorial-categories/flat-panel/sharp-igzo-to-transform-displays-ces-update/   If you tweak the refresh cycles you can achieved even greater power savings.
  Actually I think he hint that new products (not refresh of existing ones) would not be before fall.  So that doesnt rule out any product refresh before that.
