 Obviously referring to the mid-2014 Mac Mini update.
 And this is different in the PRC how? No.  Taiwan's growth period was between 1960s and 1990s as one of the four Asian Tigers (HK, Singapore, SK and Taiwan).  They had very high growth rates sustained for decades.  All four are currently advanced economies with much slower growth opportunities because they are developed. The PRC's growth is occurring now and not because of they are any less corrupt or has lower wealth disparity. Taiwan's Gini coefficient is 0.342 vs...
 Given they voted in the KMT it appears that most people don't want to change that.  2016 folks will see if that changes.
 Because there are two Chinas.  This should be obvious to anyone why a distinction needs to be made.  Writing Republic of China is no more verbose than writing South Korea. And "far east" is more or less fine as well since some of their (prior) sources may not have been Taiwanese ones but Korean or Japanese sources. For example this story about iPhone 6 shortages in the Taipei Times came via Reuters Tokyo since it also addresses Japanese...

 You just go to developer.android.com and download the Eclipse ADT package with has the SDK built in.  Yes, you may have to install JDK 6.0 and Apache Ant but the links are right on the developer page so this is not like some huge issue. Or you can download and install the Android Studio bundle which should also have everything but the JDK which can be JDK 6+. 
 So what?  It was for charity and raised $5M.  The lucky fan gets to be a slightly glorified extra.
 No, he's saying the exact opposite.  I agree with him...fragmentation today under 4.x is a lot better than it was 2.x.  Targeting for Jelly Bean 4.2 captures the majority of the US market and still leaves you with a fairly recent API stack to work with. Apps under 5.x may require some retooling but probably not much more than iOS 7 did.
 When 57 years old you reach, look as good, you will not, hm? To be more fair with the pictures she lost 35 lbs for the role:  Left is now, Right is before. http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/star-wars-star-carrie-fisher-shows-off-35/story?id=23739240 They aren't going to "ruin the franchise" any more than George did.  If anything they might make it great again.
