I just re-read that post, and I think that was his point. It's hype until someone can demonstrate a working implementation.
The color temperature issue is basically solved by moving to newer panel designs where it's less of a problem. Trying to use only a narrower voltage range to correct the offset from the backlight would really constrain your gamut. Some people assume they can create a device profile that maps it to something more like 6500K on an input of r = g = b. That always looks awful and even worse than it would look if applied at a hardware level. They usually just update it with a...
 The 13" made a switch from Haswell to Broadwell. That typically carries a longer refresh, but they have been more willing to do things like that with the 13" compared to the 15". The 15" got a new discrete gpu. That's very unusual for anything short term. I could see a form factor change on the next major refresh.
Is it ever any different?  Wacom has terrible manufacturing, but some of the other complaints aren't really valid. They basically sourced the panels that were available when they came out with the 24 and 27" models. A 4K panel would not have been feasible a year ago. Companies that cater to a smaller professional segment tend to be a bit more conservative on these things. The cost is a big issue for them due to a smaller market, and they have much tighter requirements for...
Why worry about that? Adobe hasn't focused on Flash for some time. It's insignificant to their revenue at this point.
 Is that even a real suggestion? It's completely false. BMW's market cap is $54B. That doesn't mean it would cost $54 billion to buy out all shareholders. BMW isn't looking for a buyer, and it's likely that Apple would pay a high premium on that one. It conflicts with Apple's strategies throughout the entire life of the company. The only exception might be NeXT. Apple hasn't attempted to merge any really large companies or acquire large subsidiaries, and I don't see a...
You don't get out much do you?
 Awarded is a typical term here. It indicates that Apple grants shares to Cook, because he met certain contingencies. If the article focused on Cook's performance rather than a stock event, the author would naturally use different language. This one is really written from a neutral perspective unless I missed some omission.
Those are options, which give you the right to purchase shares at a favorable price. lnvestopedia explains the details pretty well. I just used it to ensure I didn't type something inaccurate due to edge cases.Well it's also not exactly computed from the price that day. I think they determine average fair market value based on a number of preceding days. I'm not positive though.
  Quote:Only the difference in price from when it vests to when it's sold would be treated as capital gains if sold a year later. The vested RSUs would still be treated as income and thus subject to marginal income tax rates at their present value. The entire thing doesn't change to capital gains treatment.(wondering if I may have misread but it doesn't appear that way)
