Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

""If the sound quits working after the warranty expires, how much does the necessary replacement part cost?"

The answer is: it doesn't matter. Nowadays computers are made to be replaced entirely when they break up. Just as the other electronic equipment. If a laser diode in your DVD fails, you replace the whole device. Think of the computers in the same way: if anything fails, you replace the whole device.

This is very good and practical way to be always in sync with the latest technology. It is costly, yes, but this is the price of progress.

Just one little problem with your analogy: when my DVD player breaks, $30. If this son of a bitch breaks down, at least $2k knowing Apple. One is in budget, one is not and I will not pay $2k a year if the motherboard proves to fail rapidly when this cooling doesn't work out the way they think it will. Maybe you have infinite amounts of money to spend, but the rest of us have a budget.
