While Steve was there, they introduced a 15" model with integrated graphics:
Integrated graphics are fine if they do the job they need to do, the label itself doesn't automatically make them bad. The PS4 has integrated graphics:

The criticism many people had wasn't anything to do with diet but the delay in having surgery. That doctor was suggesting that Steve being forced to eat meat to increase his protein intake made things worse.

It says it in the source article:
"He would say something along the lines of 'I don't think that's good enough' and that would be the end of it and you would just want to crawl into a hole and die."
Maybe it's the way he says it or the accompanying frownsmile of terror, which is so unreadable you go mad trying to figure out he really feels.

It's the editors of those articles mainly that have pushed this anti-Apple tone to multiple sites.
News these days, especially online news isn't about delivering facts, it's about selling the most interesting stories in exchange for traffic. They can hide behind anonymous sources because they are just posting blogs online, exactly the same as someone with no sources at all. They muddle it in with fact-based reports and you can't tell when they are lying or the reliability of each source.
This particular article was reported back in April:
The same content was recycled for an article with a different heading this month:
They refer to John Gruber:
"Reached via email, Gruber said that in the month or so since he sounded the alarm, departures from Apple have not "accelerated."
"But it hasn’t slowed down either."
Gruber said: "The consensus among the people I’ve spoken to is that this is in no way a "rats leaving a sinking ship" scenario, but rather the inevitable churn of talented people capitalizing on the success of the company."
"Apple employees are in high demand, pure and simple. That’s why retention is going to be such a tricky problem for the company."
If you were an entry level engineer that had worked at Apple for a few years and had that name on your resumé, you'd probably get a better offer outside the company than inside because inside, you'd be competing with the senior level. The other thing is that conditions inside a company aren't always reflected by the products they make. Electronic products all over the world are built in factories with poor conditions regardless of the quality of the products. Even at Apple's HQ, they will have long working hours and maybe a lot of the work isn't that interesting. A company that allows their workers to be lazy might not have great products but the employees could be much happier - people generally don't prefer longer hours and more stress.
