I wonder if Samsung will now hire someone to steal some Galaxy S5's.
Sure, no reliance on Intel, but the reliance will simply be moved onto Samsung or some other foundry.
Removing ports and adding Retina will greater differentiate the MBA from the MBP line. Probably something Apple wanted to do as the two have almost become indistinguishable.   The MBA would again be truly the 'ultra notebook' in the lineup. However, the greater challenge might be how to stem the tide of people jumping onto cheap $300 Chromebooks.
At the recent Adobe Max conference, they announced Adobe Illustrator Draw for the iPad. It's not a professional application without bezier tools but rather brushes that create vectors editable only through Illustrator CC.  However also announced Adobe Illustrator for the Surface 3.  Given the better active display, I'm not surprised.

Garmins get 6 weeks in watch mode, 10 hrs in GPS training mode. We don't even know what the battery life of the Apple watch yet. Surely they could allow users to turn off GPS in the settings, when not required to preserve battery life.
Garmin with their Forerunner series have had heart rate and GPS in their watches for years. Why the Apple Watch doesn't have GPS built-in probably has more to do with forcing you to buy an accompanying iPhone, than any technological  problems.
