Tim Cook expects undivided attention when appropriate. He's also extended Apple's Thanksgiving break for the last several years. I think its reasonable to assume that his understanding of what's best for Apple is different from yours. Your presumption that he's not focused is yours, and it's based on a dearth of knowledge of Apple's situation. It's not fair for you to demand that Tim ignore his experience to share your ignorance.
Consider the possibility that you think these things are distractions because your experiences, knowledge and capabilities are not those of Mr. Cook.
Tim Cook's success is not proof that sexual orientation doesn't matter. Steve Jobs' success is not proof that college doesn't matter. Barack Obama's success is not proof that color doesn't matter. Helen Keller's success is not proof that sight and hearing do not matter. You're intelligent enough to understand this, if you wish.
The best solution depends on the individual, but in general, tilting the keyboard up at the back increases stress on the carpal tunnel. So one might expect this product to cause or exacerbate that condition. Splitting the keyboard and raising the center at the G-H split brings the hand's pronation more into alignment with the rest position. That's clearly not an option for a laptop, but flat layout of laptop keys is better than most desktop keyboards, which tilt the wrong...
Are you sure the "improvement" in typing ergonomics isn't placebo effect? Tilting a keyboard up in the back is not an ergonomic improvement. Let your arms hang at your sides, relax, and note the position of your hands. To maintain that same rested position while typing, the front of the keyboard should be a little higher than the rear, opposite "conventional wisdom". Look at Microsoft's "Natural Ergonomic Keyboard" which comes with a lift for the front of the keyboard....
Google "liquid metal electrical conductivity" for proof that radio-transparency is a myth. Liquid metal is prized for its electrical conductivity.
As chadbag reveals, 1704x906 is a typo. To retain the HD aspect ratio of the iPhone 5/5c/5s, you'd need 1704x960. Someone swapped the last two digits.
You'd be surprised how much silica/mineral grit ends up in your pockets, even if you never visit a beach. If you drive on the freeway with a window open, it's blowing into your car, and onto the iPhone on your passenger seat. Drop your keys on a wet sidewalk and you're likely to transport a little bit of grit into your pocket. Get that grit between your iPhone case and the iPhone itself and you've just created a bit of sandpaper. I don't think there's much sapphire/diamond...
"Each Foxbot can complete an average of 30,000 devices per year, meaning a release of 10,000 would theoretically yield 300,000 iPhones if tasked to that production line."   That 300,000 should be 300,000,000. But that conflicts with the later statement that Terry Gou predicted 1 million robots online by 2014 (I recall that statement from years ago). Either the Foxbots are far more capable than the robots originally mentioned by Gou, or some of the numbers in the article...
The method used to determine heart rate in the Apple video measures the instantaneous changes in reflectivity/absorption of the fingertip with each heartbeat. Even down in the capillaries, the change in blood pressure over each beat of the heart causes a measurable change in the absorption spectrum. This method used on exercise equipment and purpose built heart rate meters using only a red LED, a single photodetector and some simple, mostly analog circuitry. The change in...
