hardly. This is just cutting out a middle man or 3.  It's exploiting their own data centers and established peering agreements with MSPs and ISPs, as opposed to copying their content into a CDN and paying the CDNs to negotiate the deals. This just lowers Apple's Content Delivery costs a couple of percent... but in a 150Billion/year business, every billion counts;-). It's that backhaul network that's key.  There is a lot of stuff that isn't nicely done with CDNs (read:...
agreed.   Asian middle class are more about brand label [I can afford this] than knock offs that don't have the real branding marks.   They would rather have a 3 year old iPhone 4s than a iPhone 6 knockoff. That's part of the thing about getting the iPhone shell prototypes photos... this is less about the Western Rumor mills and more about knock offs making something that looks exactly like the real thing from 3 feet away, for that scammy/scummy under market.
Their Flat Screen Division made $USD220M in profits.   That's everything from 130in screens to watch screens.
Those analysts were seeing Samsung eating all the celery.  Apple is getting the steak.

In Russia, Code Submits YOU!
a bit more business like... Г-н Путин, вы можете пойти на хуй
Agreed.   The Mini is a 'Mac Pro Lite'  Your monitor investment is separate from your CPU investment, which is the mindset of home computer switchers and some small businesses.   But for most consumers, the iMac is what they want.  For serious MacOphiles,   The real question is MBP and monitors, or iPad and iMac/Mini.  Yosemite/iOS8/Continuity/iCloud will make that choice swing even easier to the iMac, and the Macbook Pro will evaporate into the MBA/MacPro. The Mini will...
First off the thread was about the Mini,   which is not consumer centric. But, Apple's solution for the consumer (who already has a 1080P TV in the room):Airport ExpressAppleTVAirplay.Internet Content.Problem solved.
