 err, 48,000 servers:  see -->   https://www.youtube.com/v/zRwPSFpLX8I&hl=en_US Probably a decent server farm. top heavy?   Not if the bilges are filled, and the lower compartments are lead acid batteries and power generation equipment How many employees are needed in a Google data Center... they are almost fully automated to the point of any failure is routed around (it's famously noted that Google data centers they don't fix broken components... as it costs more to to...
If they use their patent to use ocean waves as the energy generation source, it's a closed loop, so it's thermal impact would be nearly zero (obviously there no such perfect closed loop). If parked in the bay sucking power off the grid... different story, but then likely below tolerances for a industrified bay.
a year out.   a 'fan' magazine that doesn't cite a source. Not a 5" but a 6"   Sounds like a wish list, not unlike what some posts are on this site.;-)   I can't wait for AI to site a post on AI as a source for an article ("According to Poster with the handle 'PedroTheMule,' Apple is likely to to release a 43 Core Mac Mini in March, just in time for his birthday....")
I think if you're driving 4K  high quality video, the TB ports become a premium real quick (1 per display).  3 is the working minimum.  Yes you can put your data on the same wire... but... I'll bet you dollars to donuts that there will be a lot of high end drive enclosures out there that don't 'share well'.  And if you are data intense, building out a TB SSD farm is a good way to go (I can see people building multi TB SSD farms to get the random access throughput). The 2nd...
in the end…  a low end Amazon offering is what Apple wants IT's a long game play. Apple is staking a high function portable tablet computer… that can do everything 'okay' and most things 'well' and some things 'best in class' The key is Apple is selling 'the one' tablet. Amazon is selling 'a single function tablet'   You read a book, you get some amazon music… you're a Amazon prime addict.   You pop down $150… get it in a couple days… and you do your thing…. and then you...
no Touch ID on any iPad... that was my original 'latter' point.
The original iProduct:   Apple raised the price of the iMac G4  over the original iMac.

my guess is that the .99 4s99 5c 199 5c /5s299 Mini /5s 32Gb399 iPad 2/Mini Retina499 16gb iPadAir599 32gb iPadAir 699  64gb iPadAir hit's all the price points apple sees as 'attractive' (in their multi-equation problem... maximize profit, minimize product defects, maximize sales, customer satisfaction, and potential customer desire [It's worth it, I just can't afford it yet ]) I am surprise they haven't compressed a bit at the low end.   Me thinks that the next tick of...
as noted, the latter is not true and the former is a different beast altogether from a power consumption perspective.  I'm talking about cubic millimeters of battery space, and assuming that it doesn't take too many of those to be noticed missing.... with  that, and if the corresponding use of the touchID interface pushed the battery life negative (it's gotta be more than just a home button press... lots of power to scan the finger) to the current ipad, it was likely a...
