Health care data will feed on itself. The more people with health care data in iOS, the more devices that will be available.  The more devices that are available, the more data that will be stored in iOS.  Apple got this one right. HealthKit is going to be huge.
Disagree. Health data is going to be very sticky.  Even more so than music. People care about their health data and once they get used to it being in iOS, they won't go anywhere else. Why do you think Garmin has a lock on runners and bikers?  I have years of data stored in software that interacts with Garmin devices.  And despite Garmin's over-priced shitty hardware, I still buy it because it isn't worth it to move my data somewhere else.
I work at a law firm and I was told by my IT group that it would be a cold day in hell before the firm allowed Macs.  That cold day arrived 3 years ago.  I'm puzzled at the low alleged market share for Apple.  Outside the law firm, it seems like most people I interact with use Macs.  
The knew Spotlight ignores a lot of things, like the content in my emails and contacts......POS
What makes the most sense is to have a MagSafe on one side and usb-c on the other. The power in Usb-c could go either way depending on whether power is connected and what's connected to usb-c. Can't wait to get one.
After reading WSJ article about this topic, it looks to me like the project was too much for GT and Apple was negotiating pretty hard. My guess is the CEO decided to show Apple who was boss by filing bankruptcy.  Stupid move.  He obviously let his emotions get the better of him. In the long run, it would have been better to work it out with Apple. 
No post processing. They actually cut thin slices of sapphire from the boules. And yes it works.  GT has been doing it for years on smaller boules.  The problem occurred when they made bigger boules to get the costs down.  Many of the larger boules came out cracked (worthless).   
Agreed.  And who says there has to be "fault." It was an experiment.   Everyone makes it sound like Apple should have picked someone else.  Who?????Exactly.  Everyone keeps saying that Apple made a poor choice and GT is a terrible vender, but Apple's only other option was to not do the project.  Nobody else was going to make that much sapphire and as it turns out, neither could GT.  It's pretty obvious GT got in over their head.  However, entrepreneurs do it all the time....
How can you say they invented something that doesn't have anything to do with the current generation products?  You are clearly wrong. The court found that the patents do cover the future generation products. I think I know where your analysis went wrong. You compared the past products with the future products and determined that they aren't equivalent products.  However, that's not how patent law works.  The previous products are irrelevant. The analysis is between the...
Seems like over the last 10 years the public has become anti-patent.  It's a real shame. The patent system is the foundation of entrepreneurship and a pillar of the U.S. technology sector.  You naysayers are killing the goose that lays the golden egg.  And for what? Why not force big companies to compensate inventors? Incentivizing entrepreneurs to invent stuff is way better than taxing big companies and giving it to lazy people on welfare.   Apple has $150 billion...
