    PGHammer got a reaction from The Real Deal in OS X Mavericks now available for free from the Mac App Store   
    Most of Apple's revenue (for the past several years) comes from two areas - iDevices, and the services back end (the App Stores and iTunes).  Now, the App Stores cover the iDevices *and* the Macs - how much in the way of physical software does Apple actually ship, even for Macs or Windows?  That's how Apple built up that monstrous hoard of cash that is mostly stranded overseas.  Any company with a heavy services back end is going to build up a crapton of cash if that service is in any way successful; it's NOT unique to Apple.  (Google has a similar issue with Google Play and the Chrome App Store - even Microsoft has that issue with their own App Stores for Windows Phone, RT, and even Windows 8/8.1 -  the App Stores are additions to, NOT instead of, current revenue flows for Team Redmond.  Additional streams of revenue never - as in ever - hurt a company of any size, just as they never - again, as in ever - hurt a government of any size; the appetite for revenue never goes away.)

    PGHammer got a reaction from eject in Haswell is HERE now!   
    Haswell (like Ivy Bridge) is NOT for anyone with current-generation Intel hardware looking to crossgrade; it is for those with Nehalem (or older) Intel hardware (or any AMD hardware) as the improvements are pretty much mostly in those mobile SKUs (the same was largely true of Ivy Bridge, in fact). Since I am looking to migrate from Q6600, Haswell is pretty much aimed at me (because I skipped both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge). Further, what incentive does Intel have to improve CPUs, since we as users (especially mainstream users) keep insisting on baby-step software changes, if we allow any changes at all?
