 Hope you're right, but I can imagine Ive putting that protruding lens on there and thinking he's being edgy.  Then without Jobs around to tell him he's full of shit, it makes it into production.   Somebody needs to reign Ive in.  He's destroying both iOS and OS X.  Function always follows form with Ive, right down to the thin iMac with all the ports in back and completely inaccessible components buried in a poorly cooled space.  That's got to be the dumbest computer...
This must be one of the most gorgeous iPhones ever!  I want one.   My only qualm is with the protruding lens.  Besides making it impossible to lay the phone flat for use as a level, it strikes me as a potential durability problem.  The lens could catch on hard surfaces, or serve to concentrate all the pressure on it if one forgets the phone is in a back pocket and sits on a hard surface.  Even more troubling is that the lens can unexpectedly catch when drawing the phone...
Brilliant new feature!  This is what new versions of OS X used to deliver:  improvements that made a positive difference in usability.     Now can we please go back to colorful and contrasty icons for the sidebar?  I'm sick of the monochrome icons that I have to read to see what's what.  
It's one of the first Apple computers built, but far from one of the first computers ever built. Get a copy editor!
I like the dual LEDs, that could make for a pretty useful flashlite.  
Totally agree on the iPad 5.  If some of the rumors are to be believed, it may weigh as little as 16 ounces.  For a ~10" tablet that is freakin' amazing!  That's about my weight limit (including weight of a case so about 1 lb 12 oz) for extended reading at night whilst holding a tablet up in bed, so I'd go for the iPad 5 over a Mini if they hit that weight.   Your second point I must disagree with.  That idea is to crush the competition, and currently the iPad Mini is a...
Good thinking. This is one of those details that Apple could completely ignore and it wouldn't affect sales one bit. It's about doing the right thing. Cool.
  Not exactly, but Apple is being a bit vague and the W9000 have the right amount of SPs.  The W9000 supports 6 mini DP outputs versus the S10000 supporting only 4 mini DP and one DVI.  No Crossfire on the S10000 and one would hope Apple has these things crossfired.     It's likely that Apple has a custom FirePro card solution that doesn't match any of the official AMD offerings.  Probably only custom display output but anything is possible.     Also, Apple doesn't like...
    Dual FirePro W9000s are in the high end model.  We don't know what the base model will use.  And FirePro W9000s are more than $2,300 a pop, try about $3,400 - $3,700.  No matter what sort of deal AMD gives Apple, that high end Mac Pro is going to cost, but it will be worth it if reports on the WWDC demo are to be believed.   And yes, the Nvidia GT 120 found in many Mac Pros cannot handle basic OS X animations smoothly.  That's a fact.  
    You're comparing a high range i7 mobile CPU to the base Xeon CPU.  Talk about clueless.  At least add in the chipset and memory when you make the comparison, otherwise it's just farting in the wind.   It should be pretty obvious that an xMac line with a range of i7 processor options would cost less for the CPU at each level (low, mid, high) than an xMac line with a range of Xeon processors.  i7 CPUs would also use cheaper non-ECC RAM.  I don't know but I would guess...
