    Continuing their time-honored tradition of ignoring grammar conventions, I see.

    “Let us bring you in the loop” would be better, but that would imply a visit to the new campus.
    I don't know in English but in Spanish grammar is flexible in poetry and slogans.

    To be to be grammatically correct, you'd use the word 'into' rather then just 'in.'
    Okay.  :D

    To me the design and phrase are more centered in Apple Watch than in other things, Yes the colors can be of the phone, but also of the watch and there are other color that perfectly can be new band color.

    Yes! That’s it. I knew there was something that didn’t feel right about my correction. Thanks.

    A 5K (not what it really is) Thunderbolt Display as thin as the iMac (seriously, how is JUST A DISPLAY thicker than an entire computer) would be spectacular.

    The pasſage of time can shove a fork whence it came. There’s grammar and then there’s an abomination thereof.
    And yes, that’s a long s.  ;) You may remember it from such documents as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    Apple should consider leaving the USA.

    About 15% of Apple's profits comes for the USA.  About $7.5 billion a year.

    Apple makes about $42.5 billion in profits outside the USA.
    If Apple brings that money back to the USA they would have to pay 40% tax.
    The foreign tax rate is about 15%.

    So if Apple went out of the USA they would save over $10 billion on taxes a year (pay 15% tax rate in foreign countries instead of 40% USA/Cali tax rate)




    They should move their operations to Africa and just hire starving babies. Think how much they'd save!

    Loop in - transitive verb - "To Connect" or "to give information".  Documented, and perfectly valid grammar.

    *Loop in* stands for *to connect*, according to the dictionnary.

    I boldly predict a dramatic overhaul of the iCloud services and plans. And a standalone app store, presented by Phil Shiller. Springtime would also be a great time to get rid of the old, iTunes.

    To be to be grammatically correct, you'd use the word 'into' rather then just 'in.'

    http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/american/loop-in

    It's a phrasal verb, such a construction is used extensively

    Let us Loop you in
    Let us strap you in
    Let us fasten you in
    Let us Buckle you in
    Let us clip you in
    Let us hook you in (this has also a double signification)

    Obviously,, both the idiom "in the loop" and the phrasal verb "loop in",
    as a metaphor for physically being kept attached, fastened, to a project (looped to it) and being part of the communication flow (loop) about such project.

    Publicity often use terse communication with parts of the sentence missing, or implied.

    A nice target is good ole Ireland which has a 12% tax rate.

    Apple should GTFO of the USA and blame the politicians for the move. This won't stop anyone in the US from buying their products.

    Frankly as a shareholder I think its ridiculous that Tim Cook has not moved out of the USA already. He is literally costing shareholders $10 billion in taxes each year.



    Thar t would place them straight in the gentle arms of the EU privacy/security/tax police. Not something they should willingly consider.

    Shareholders do not pay the taxes, that cost is passed on to the customers.
