    The marketing is brilliant: Apple headlines on virtually every newspaper and news we site….and it isn’t costing them a dime !

    Wow, I like the resolution and saturation specs. That could be the tipping point for me to finally break down and get one.

    Maybe I’ll sell an AAPL share and buy one while they’re at par…..

    The secret behind the Ipad3′s identical battery life?
    12nm
    Apple’s supply chain got the chips down from 40nm to 28nm.

    Apple sells electronic heroin to a client base needing to be hard-wiring their restless brains into total immersion in Stevie’s new electronic connections. The best depression experience was Shirley Temple and
    escapist 30′s movies where you could disassociate from the coal mine dog-eat-dog outside.
    It is not so surprising that both Jobs and Ellison are both rejected, adopted children who built closed systems where no taste exists for else but what they own. Cold bros but God save their immortal souls. They won’t be finding heaven anytime soon since they kicked it to the curb, their freedom poisoned by egotism.

    Wonder how many Chinese had to slave doing 12hr days or more in total silence 7 days a week to make these and Idiot phones so we Westerner could buy some thing we can’t afford to impress people we don’t like and using dangerous chemicals to clean the toys.
    Wonder what the ratio I diot toys per suicide is.
