 And the iPad Mini.And the iPhone name.And many other statements and predictions. There should be a claim chowder bookmark feature for huddler.
 I've been here a long time and toxic posters like TS with their vehement "predictions" that add as much noise as the obvious trolls that infests this site from time to time. It is not "facile logic" because his statement was not a long term prediction as in your reductio ad absurdum example but a prediction that a product would not be made or if made be unappealing to consumers based on his own narrow minded opinions.   The fact is that the 6+ had a very successful launch...
 May be correct in the long term = Is incorrect today. Even more so in TS' case given how vehement he was about it and how he denigrated any opinion to the contrary.
 He launched the Michael Graves product line which is considered one of the primary reasons that Target's image changed with consumers.  He attempted to do the same at JCPenny but frankly JCP sucked too much.
 What does kid tables have to do with the tables that Ive is talking about?
 A one trick pony that was also successful at Target.  I think JC Penney revamp concept had merit but not with that particular brand. In any case, he's assembled a decent looking team.  Either he's a remarkable salesman who's managed to snow these other execs after the JC Penny debacle or he's come up with something that they think has legs despite his debacle at JC Penny. My impression is that you'll call to get someone to show up to demo the high end devices his company...
 No, just annoyed that he makes Apple fans look like the mindless zealots that fandroids accuse us of being.  And it turned what could have been a good in-depth article about Apple's new approach to media relationships into nine short paragraphs of shallow observations and then a gazillion paragraphs of poorly edited filler. That's without even mentioning that Gizmodo got taken off the do-not-invite list.  Another obvious change in Apple's stance.  Lots of interesting...
 I would say that based on this observation that the server model was the best seller for Dataquest...  Interestingly enough the #6 desktop seller in Amazon today is the quad i7 2.3Ghz Mac Mini. I suspect that sales of the 2.3 Ghz quad were very good in comparison to the rest of the mini line up with the server and 2.6 Ghz models following them. 
 So, you are of the opinion that you can better estimate the geekbench performance of the new mini better than the founder of primate labs...the company behind geekbench.  Is this why you are still arguing this point?  Despite the fact that he also wrote about the performance of the 2014 13" MBPr in June? Seriously?    If this was a true statement then there would not likely be $2,199 BTO option.  Because the base iMac (dual i5) can only be plussed up to $1,349.  In fact...
 Where are you getting your geekbench results with the new mini?  Here's the estimates since there aren't any actuals yet:   While Apple doesn't compete on price it has always been competitive (at launch anyway) on value.  It is clear that the old mini with a geekbench score of 11319 was a great value...much better than the new mini.  Which is a remarkably poor value in comparison to other SFF machines at every price point.   Maybe Broadwell will see a return to quad minis...
