The results for the mini don't really seem that impressive. You're saving a second here and there on apps that take 15+ seconds to launch. It's nice to see Apple focusing on improving performance, but this will likely do little for those of us who don't buy the latest and greatest.
2: you will be surprised how little things add up to a snappier feel.
3: what other company on the planet supports smartphones this old? Maybe pixel devices. No one else. I suggest you take a good look at yourself.
Apple & Samsung have poor records of correctly advising customers of their legal rights to repair and replacement of faulty goods under the Australian Consumer Act here downunder. The act was long in place before they traded here and they entered this market with eyes wide open. The laws are so strong that there’s actually not even a good case to take out AppleCare. Our rights for repair or replacement of faulty goods cover a “reasonable period” of time based on cost of the item. We can even insist on a new phone rather than a refurb, if a new phone is still available.

And why would a small violation in one state have a fine based on the entire net worth of a one of the largest corporations in the world.
Equality is a good idea. Try it, you'll like it.Well now that depends on what they do with that information.If Macy's wanted to discourage me from going back to their store, then increasing the price of the sweater from 5% of my monthly pay to 20% of my pay would certainly make me think twice about going back there.Much in the same way as increasing Apple's fine from 0.004% of their revenue to 0.5% might make them think more about the (business) risks associated with incorrect hazardous material handling.
I really love Fed Square. I can appreciate the scepticism about it’s design when you look at a photo on the web. To be honest, you need to stand in the middle of it in person to fully appreciate the space. And it’s part of the Arts Precinct in Melbourne so don’t be that surprised that the design is way out there.
As for Apple’s design, the new cube will definitely compliment the surroundings better than the original. As a purely commercial entity they are incredibly lucky to get the space at all - it is supposed to primarily be a public & entertainment space.
Hopefully the new store design is enough to mute the politics a bit and get the thing built.
