  Well, something like this:   “I don’t think anybody has done a product that is the product that I see customers wanting,” Ballmer said in an interview picked up by AllThingsD. “You can go through the products from all those guys … and none of them has a product that you can really use. Not Apple. Not Google. Not Amazon. Nobody has a product that lets you work and play that can be your tablet and your PC. Not at any price point.”   This was in October. :)
  So not a scientific test, but it just finally died on me after about 5 hours with a 30 minute sleep in the middleish. That's minimal brightness and mostly web/terminal and a few background apps running for the most part, but in general I haven't gotten anywhere close to that since 10.6. Usually closer to half that before it would sleep. I'd say that's an improvement!   BTW - coconutBattery says current capacity is 5588/6900 with 193 load cycles after 24 months, so I am...
I came here to make the retractable dome joke. :)
Doing anything on 2GB of RAM sucks. Most apps need a chunk more than they used to as well, so it's not like even if Mountain Lion only ate up a gig and left the rest for everything else you'd be happy. RAM is cheap now and is a huge bottleneck for older machines trying to run newer software when you're dealing with those amounts of memory.
I haven't done any concrete testing yet, but on my first battery outing on 10.8.3 and I'm seeing numbers back to Snow Leopard levels. Been on battery for an hour and a half and it still says I have another 4+ remaining. Probably won't actually be that much, but prior to this update, lately I've been taking my Mac out on battery and immediately seeing ~3 hrs and dropping rapidly, sometimes not even getting that much out of it. Was waiting to get a new SSD and do a...
Considering their retail and operations are best in their class, though they can do better I would argue they are consistently doing so all the time. 
Yeah, I know it's not what you meant really. :)  I wonder actually what was omitted from the full interview, if they just cherry picked a few statements, put a spinny headline on it, and shipped it. Not sure Schiller used them, it may have been the other way around — though I can't imagine he wouldn't have seen that coming from the WSJ given their track recent track record.   If I were Apple, I'd just release something out of nowhere tomorrow to eat up headlines. Maybe...
Why don't you drop them all into a single "Unused" folder on your last page of apps? Is that *seriously* that big of an eyesore?
Someone in the investor forums here was saying recently they needed to trot the SVPs out more often to get them to talk. Well, here's what you get. :) I'd rather they keep quiet like usual.   MG Siegler nails it: http://parislemon.com/post/45296305631/apple-goes-on-the-defensive-against-samsung
  No, sales are reality and the 3GS and 4S sold like crazy — above and beyond their prior incarnations.
