Since every iDevice prompts the user to sign up for iCloud, this isn't very surprising.  I suspect that in this report "most-used" means most people signed up.     iCloud is great for syncing contacts and bookmarks.  Photo Stream is pretty cool.  Syncing files using a flat file system?  Not cool.  Android slaughters iOS when it comes to file management.  Apple really need to include a finder and make it easy to sync an iOS device with specific directories in OS X....
I'd settle for a very simple update: I say "Turn on Bluetooth" and Siri turns on Bluetooth. I realize such a feature would represent a huge technological leap for Apple, but we can always hope, yes?
Dual core i3? 4 GB RAM? Still not under $1000? Pathetic.
Finally a voice of reason regarding Apple's stock price.
 A game?  You mean like the ones played in Las Vegas?  Casino gambling is no basis for a sound economy.   The original purpose of the stock market was to raise capital so corporations could invest in their future.  The nonsense perpetrated by guys like Kramer et. al. is parasitic to a capitalist economy, and we pay the price with severe boom and bust cycles in our economy.  
Wait, people still watch ads?  Like, the ones on the TV Machine?  Wow.  I haven't watched an ad in over a decade.   This ad dork's analysis does get at the crux of Apple's problem today:  a severe lack of creative boldness.  Steve Jobs surrounded himself with people who would tolerate his aggresive creativity, so the result is that today Apple is run by timid execs who are afraid to dominate their competitors.  
Rolex, lol. Overpriced jewelry for vapid men who need to show off their wealth to make up for the rest of their overwhelming inadequacy. Not sure I like Apple being at the top of this list...
Hope this means a retina iPad mini is iminent.  I'll be camping out at the Apple Store for this one...
    The last time Apple had "cheap" towers they literally faced doom every quarter.  Now their OS X user base is expanding every year.  So it is no longer necessarily a question of milking the existing user base for as much profit as possible, or to put in businessspeak, a consumer tower need not cannibalize the sales of other less profitable Mac lines.     An xMac doesn't have to be a Mac Pro with an i7 plugged into it, in fact that would be a marketing disaster.  Apple...
  So why don't you buy a SATA PCIe card?  You can get one for under $30.
