 It isn't? Why not? It's redundant and fault tolerant. A thief or fire can cause 100% data loss, but otherwise I'm safe, right?
 Oh. Okay, that's a bigger advantage than I thought. That makes the question even harder to answer! :) Do speeds like that really happen in real life, or do other factors limit the rate at which the system can read and write? Would this configuration actually BE faster than a SATA3 interface or only have a "theoretical" advantage?
 As others have noted, all that says is that the storage device can be removed by the user. It doesn't mean anyone, including Apple, is gonna sell you something else to put there. While the move to solid-state storage is obviously a good one, I'm not yet sure whether the relatively small speed advantage likely to be realized by the PCIe interface offers enough benefit to offset the huge disadvantage of being incompatible with worldwide standards. Crucial and Samsung are...
 Since drive size is not unlimited, at a bare minimum an extra drive means doubling the internal storage capacity, possibly to the point of negating the need for high-speed outboard. That "makes sense" to me. Also, since Pro Tools strongly discourages putting sessions on the system drive, having a second internal drive may mean being able to do a remote gig with just a li'l pocket drive for backups rather than having to lug around a big, heavy, noisy, power-hungry,...
 No, the latter doesn't necessarily follow the former. Apple can't do software worth a damn and yet their smartphone business is doing great. It apparently takes more than poor software to sink a smartphone ship.

 Maybe I'm misunderstanding your point, but I don't see the iPad mini serving Paxman (or me) at all because it doesn't make phone calls. I just don't get the reasoning process that comes to the conclusion that carrying around TWO devices in the form of tablet-plus-phone is somehow more portable than just a larger phone.
My reaction to this was "Maybe leave layers until after you've worked out pointing me in the right direction!" but it seems maybe what's happening to me is not all that common. Are any of you having trouble with basic map functions like simply showing the location of a local address?   I was looking into how the Maps app on the Mac interacts with Contacts and Calendar. I entered the address for a medical specialist in Contacts, then an appointment with that specialist on...
 I don't think it's fair to tell anyone who offers any criticism, objection or less-than-complete-statisfaction with absolutely everything Apple ever does to change platforms or shut up. My wife occasionally does things that I wish she wouldn't but that doesn't mean I want a different wife. The world is not black and white. I reside in the particular shade of gray occupied by people who don't necessarily like some of Apple's business practices but still prefer them over...
 That sounds like a fancy way of saying "It's our prerogative to dumb-down previously useful software in order to make it look like a stupid touchscreen is actually a useful computer." Big foocking deal. Achieving "feature" parity across platforms is no great feat when you do it by removing features from the "real" version (as opposed to the "Lite" version for your super-duper tool of the future semi-computer).  Ah yes, that old troll. "If you think Apple is bad, just look...
