  actually, to make sure that everyone has access to it, you probably want to patent it to make sure no one else with evil intent does. 'CopyLeft'ing (at least the software) is even better... driving the market to submit all improvements back into the source 'right' so everyone can benefit from it.
sigh.  I wish they would come clean with the level of risk (was it a common salt?, no device pinning?, etc. etc.).   I read this as, 'we shortcutted and encrypt/hashed your passwords in a simple manner, instead of oneway hashing them in a computationally intense manner.'    Sad. [soapbox]Reading through the level of security Apple builds into iOS, it appears to be quite easy to add device pinning (only allow logins from prior successfully logged in iOS devices), and state...
Economies of Scale:  Do you say the same things when large corporations (intel) make chips for pennies and sell them to you for dollars, and small fabs make them for dollars and sell them for $10's of dollars, because only the scale of Intel can get the production price down. corporate ethics is quite simple:  make the largest  profit for the least amount of work(ing capital), and follow enough rules so you don't go to jail.   There is nothing wrong with reading the rules,...
I agree.   The end game was video content, and the end game of that end game is  AppleTV (or maybe "TVPlay" ;-)
'Internet' Search engine. ITMS and AppleTV has plenty of apple developed search engines.
all risk, little reward.   Sometimes its better to pass the risk to Intel, and pay wholesale.   Just keep reminding them of who is the largest High End Laptop maker, and that you have a few 'tweaks' you'd like them to do to speed up OSX, and occasionally let leak through back channels Macbook Airs running on prototype A8x chips (may be slow as molasses, but it tells Intel they can't stick it to one of their largest customers). The fact that apple owns both the A'n' design...
Be careful with trying imagine that 'everyone's wants' are required to be met.     I drive a skid steer catapillar for work.  Why can't I have that steering interface on my Porsche Cayenne?   I want it, because that's how I learned to drive.  I'm willing to pay for it, if it's built in!  If you don't, then it's Porsche's fault not to meet my car driving needs, and forcing all other car manufacturers to 'race to the bottom' in taking out that input device.   Oh, I know I...
The former requirements is your cost of conversion to the internet model Apple aspires to. The market in the next three years in laptops is targetted for people leaving home, and likely spent the last 3 years buying their music over the net.  No conversion needed. Your latter requirement is paying for the inadequacies of your 'people.'   Shame them into upgrading!!!! ;-)
Market research of one.    The "Where the puck will be" of laptops  is pretty much 2 USB3.0, WiFi (Wireless Cell would be nice... but I think Apple's master plan is to make your iPhone that $99 Tethering MiFi), Thunderbolt, and a power cord.   The differentiator between Air and Pro will be screen resolution, and CPU/Memory/SDD options And you're smart enough to upgrade in place...  So why should Apple build a production line around a system that no one really needs (since...
Gartner can do this, because they don't advise investors, they advise corporate decision makers on what devices to support in the enterprise.    Show me the money... Remember, this is the gartner that is so in tune with the tablet market place that they felt that Windows would be Number 2 by this year.   They got burned by that one, and now are doubling down on Android.    After what Pichai said last week about securing android, my guess is that it's the AV vendors that...
