Okay, I've read Wired's piece on this and two interesting bits of information come out:   [1] The device has a CPU, GPU and an HPU, a 'holographic processing unit'. It also has a 'depth processing camera'. Looking good, if a little hard to believe, for holography.   [2] The device has 'two lenses'. I have no idea what this means but alarm bells are ringing. (The author didn't pursue details.) If the lenses are in fact, translucent/transparent screens onto which...
Sorry but not true. What you saw in Star Wars was fantasy and the 'projected' images were not holograms. A hologram is the appearance of a three dimensional image produced by a 2 dimensional interference pattern. I agree that the headset probably doesn't create true holographic images, as the computational overhead would be quite massive but if they are displaying an appropriate, computed interference pattern, then yes, they are producing holographic images. The most...
Without knowing the circumstances, I suppose that at least some apartments are separately, privately owned (as opposed to being leased from a single owner). Their values should appreciate considerably upon completion of Apple's new HQ.
Of course, Watch, not iWatch - thank you Unfortunate mistake at just that juncture.
Just as well, although I'd love to know what my iWatch would have to say about that. Would any alarm be subtle enough?
Troxler's fading - love it.    We perceive the world visually via an eye-brain system. Together they do remarkable things, such as filling in missing or incomplete information but can be tricked too by the drive to make sense of the world. A bit like people in general really. 
I'll bet that all of the necessary facilities are in place to service a central tower, if it ever comes to that. Imagine Apple ten times bigger that now.  
Was intending to stay with my 5 for another year but misadventure a couple of weeks ago forced me to think again... poor old 5, loved it. I jumped to a 6 Plus and the result... brilliant! My hands are bigger than average and I can reach the whole screen in single-handed mode and so the size isn't an issue from that perspective. I'm a road cyclist however and the phone is snug in my back pocket (but won't allow the Apple headphone connector). Time will tell but I'm already...
Apparently, there's a conspiracy forming to slow Apple down by flooding stores. Good luck with that...  
Where I live, pedestrians utterly rule in bicycle/pedestrian interactions, even on so-called dual-use facilities where the cyclist is a virtual non-entity. I ride on roads largely to avoid self-righteous pedestrians (and their dogs who also rule and glass and poor design and poor maintenance and no oversight). The pedestrian is (almost) inevitably an utter pain and so, sadly, the pervasive use of cameras will have almost no effect pedestrian behaviour, nor attitudes,...
