Tweeting that you paid for something with Apple Pay is the new tweeting that you have Wifi at 35,000. This too shall pass.

Maxed.@jnportfolio got a non-FB link?"you don’t need this new iMac… But oh boy will you want one." http://t.co/lCj4TiXYnI@asymco @conorporter @drbarnard Those GPU gains are in aid of the software advancements that they help make possible. But still incremental.Apple’s Swift has open source challenger, Phoenix http://t.co/gE9fElwygK

@monkbent @DanFrakes @BenBajarin @GlennF True. And given the exodus of PC market participants Apple benefits by continuing to invest in Mac.@DanFrakes @monkbent @BenBajarin @GlennF A lot of the Mac growth came in emerging markets, so this is kind of a second wave of the iOS halo.@DanFrakes @monkbent @BenBajarin @GlennF But why now? iOS halo has been in place for years.@AlexDaUkrainian @reneritchie The Air 2 presentation was speeds and feeds. They've stopped focusing on what iPad can do. And that's a shame."Whither Liberal Arts?" solid post from @monkbent. I agree completely. http://t.co/3m4FxRhlJv@AndyNico_ @drbarnard @reneritchie @monkbent @GlennF Wow. That's honest…@drbarnard @reneritchie @monkbent @GlennF I dunno. Those are the apps that seem most likely to get through – and win design awards.@TheNewLou @monkbent @GlennF Garage Band. Sure it runs on iOS, but tell me whether that app makes any sense on an iPhone.@rossrubin True.@monkbent @drbarnard @Lessien @GlennF Sum of all compromises: http://t.co/2FkzxLUX87
Retweeted by Lessien@monkbent @reneritchie @drbarnard @GlennF Priorities and time. It has to be on the table, given what's happening in the app store.@gte @counternotions @monkbent @GlennF And most of the big services want to "own the platform" themselves eventually…@BenBajarin @GlennF @monkbent Dunno. This feels like 2007 again with Vista. Apple gains because Microsoft had a weak launch with Windows 8.@Lessien @monkbent @GlennF Developers are incentivized to build the next Clash of Clans, not transformative apps. http://t.co/NCWlYXptmF
Retweeted by Lessien@gte @monkbent @GlennF I really don't know how the reset button gets pushed on the app store, given what has happened. It's tough.@drbarnard @monkbent @GlennF Spot on.@Lessien @GlennF I don't usually go here, but I think the iPad is the product where SJ is missed the most. http://t.co/4sczuVqccX
Retweeted by Lessien@jsnell You do have about a zillion. Thanks.@monkbent @GlennF It was wild. It didn't feel like it should be possible. iPad (marketing) needs to get its magic back.@drance @monkbent @GlennF 100% agree.If only we had a podcast… Sometimes Twitter doesn't work…@monkbent @GlennF Yep. If I were Tim, aside from the IBM deal (which was smart), I'd assign several teams to build transformative iPad apps.@monkbent @GlennF I was just reading that. :) Because the iPad is less of a fashion item, software is a bigger factor in its success.@GlennF Conundrum is that the economics of the app store and iPhone volume have stymied the iPad-focused development. And that's key.@GlennF The iPad suffers from the same problem as HDTVs. Once you have one, what's the compelling reason to upgrade? (1/2)Time to re-link @GlennF's "Incremental Change" post from TidBits: http://t.co/N2SdJdinXY@GlennF Sometimes it's called for. These reviews irritate me. "It's better, but is that enough?" #sighMy iPad review: It's a large slab of glass plus a battery. Hardware improvements will be incremental. Beyond that it's the software, stupid.So iPad Air 2 is the first three-core iOS device? Very curious. It has specs that way outstrip its software capabilities right now
Retweeted by Lessien.@Firebase is joining Google. Well done, @JamesTamplin @vikrum5000 and @startupandrew. https://t.co/aAj5elHUe7
Retweeted by LessienI'm quite excited about this new iMac. (Sorry, Mac Pro owners.) http://t.co/1bjlsR9M8v@fromedome np.@fromedome Their posts could use a plain-english explanation of their methods. It's buried in legalese in their privacy policy.@fromedome That's not creepy at all…With every one of these credit card breaches, the case for Apple Pay and Google Wallet improves. http://t.co/PQBIG492w6
@ShawnKing As if this isn't the same company whose CEO recently published this statement: https://t.co/BSRMYfBpsZ@GlennF True. I just hope this doesn't become another "gate."Do people know how search works?First Apple Pay experience was simple and easy.

@neilshea2 yep. You were right.@GlennF just one man. I do have some self control. :)@gte A cylinder of shame. That’s a show title if I’ve ever heard one. #awesomeSo, yeah, I guess I did want that iMac after all.The end of "going platinum".

@rickblauraya @treestman #no@treestman that’s a year from now. Apple will want to push adoption to probably 80% before then. Can’t get there on new device sales alone.@treestman upgrade stations at Apple stores? Or do something clever with iCloud + incentive to get people to free disk space?Literally cannot wait to take @HTC RE photos with all my smug model friends http://t.co/am8lYdyDZH

The H-P split-up involves 5000 layoffs and a huge fee to Goldman - a perfectly symbolic deal for modern capitalism.

Retweeted by LessienSamsung warns on Q3. http://t.co/xHMY9BCQA8Bankruptcy doesn’t mean “out of business.” Likely just an orderly restructuring of debt obligations. Relax.I take GT Advanced (Apple's sapphire supplier) filing for bankruptcy as evidence that Apple *did* want sapphire screens on the iPhone 6.
