It's all good and well, but the stupid pencil is still not available to buy outside of North America. Fail.
This doesn't make any sense. From a parts point of view, the 8GB phone will be no more than 8$ cheaper than the 16GB version. Yet it is essentially a crippled device that will give a lot of users a bad first experience when they run out of space after putting a few songs on it and recording a few pics and vids or even just installing one of the bigger apps, such as TomTom or a game like Infinity Sword 3.   What they need is cut margins at the sales price. They're not...
Instantly reminded me of the Master in Fallout 1.  
Buying back stock without the intention of taking the company private all the way is a nonsensical Wallstreet move. Nothing is gained, no value is added from a perspective of the company. And that's the perspective I like to have when I make decisions concerning my investments.
If a valuation is only supposed to be based on the net profits a company gets each year, then yes, your logic would hold. In the old days, buying stock was called buying shares. Meaning you bought part of the company as a commitment, because you believed in what they did and wanted to help them finance new investments. That time is sadly long gone. People just care about their own profits now and the company as well as their work is irrelevant as long as the stock prices...
Stock is down 42.46$ as of this moment. It seems Apple has finally attracted the attention of "investors" that nobody really wants. It's a sick world we live in, where you can post a profit of over 13 billion and be punished for it by an 8% stock drop.   This is ridiculous.   P.S.: That also means by buying today, you'll make 8% profit within a week's time.
Instead of focusing on the currently still irrelevant fact that the SoC is only 32bit, you should have noticed that the camera is a 16MP phase detection autofocus unit. Autofocus right now is arguably the weakest point of Apple's cameras. If Samsung pulls this off well, this may take them a significant step ahead.
I couldn't help but notice there seemed to be a few facts that got mixed up on their website. The PowerMac 8500 wasn't the first Mac with A/V capabilities. That would have been the Quadra 840av.   And the Macintosh TV wasn't the only black Apple desktop before the nMP, unless you absolutely want to define the blackish appearance of the 20th anniversary Mac as "not black". I guess technically, this is true, but everybody I know always considered that black.
Just lost a mid 2010 MBP to a failed mainboard after some heavy lifting. Would only boot to a gray screen after POST and would not boot from any device, internal, external or networked and would not accept any keystrokes whatsoever. Repair is about 600$ in parts alone. Not happy. But at least I didn't waste money on Applecare that would only just have expired half a year ago.
And the male voice is going to be called Durandal? Or Tycho?
