Apple "Apple just posted its hotly-anticipated Q2 2013 earnings, and the company posted a profit of $9.5b on revenues of $43.6b, compared to $11.6b in profit on $39.2b in revenue this quarter last year and $13.1b in profit on $54.5b in revenue last quarter. That's right in line with the company's guidance from last quarter. Most importantly, iPhone sales are fairly flat year-over-year. Apple sold 37.04 million in Q2 2013 versus last year's 35.1 million, a modest growth of seven percent. iPad sales for the quarter were 19.5 million, up a massive 65 percent from last year's 11.8 million, but the average selling price (ASP) dropped fairly steeply year-over-year, likely due to the introduction of the cheaper iPad mini."

Here are a few things which you could do on older Macs, but cannot do anymore with recent hardware and OSX releases:

-Develop software that cannot be banned from any tweak-free Mac by the mere revocation of a signing key.
-Replace a laptop battery without Apple's assistance or opening the whole computer.
-Install a fresh OS copy, including when hard drive contents get corrupt.
-Upgrade the OS without an App Store account.
-Connect a laptop to an Ethernet network without using an adapter.
-Operate the system tools in a no-nonsense fashion, without over-the-top animations constantly interfering.
