Aside from falling asleep halfway through (not unusual), I had 1 big complaint. Why is it every “epic story” is full of people with British accents? Did the UK conquer the universe and leave everyone else behind? Star Wars, Dune, so many shows, so many English accents. I know, it’s a small quibble, but it bothers me enough to pull me out of immersion.
I received an email with a survey a few weeks back. It was all about the 2012 mini I had bought right after the 2014s were out. It asked a lot of questions about what I liked, if I was still using it, what could they do better, that kind of stuff. At the end they asked if I had any other comments and I made clear that expandability was a must in any future purchase. Decent non-mobile processor, upgradable ram and replacable hard drives were all emphasized as must-haves. I hope Apple got a lot of responses like mine, and listens to them.

(Which for all I know you couldn't, anyway). The flip side to my disdain for chucking money out the window is that features like CarPlay will have to wait. I paid 10 grand for my XC70 with 100,000 clicks on the clock. It should easily do another 100 before I sell it, and it still looks pretty damn new. Well, almost. I have kids and dogs
