To compare the US intelligence agencies to the Stasi is not only intellectually dishonest, it's fucking stupid. Read some actual history and then come back because you have no fucking idea what you're talking about and you're insulting what the people of East Germany went through.

Your conclusion that people are going to lose interest in a couple of years is completely disproved by the fact that Mac sales are up 18% year over year. They are growing in popularity. Everyone knows at this point that repair options for Apple products are limited and they seem to be ok with that. In fact, other companies are emulating this concept and are making devices that are more and more difficult to repair as time goes on.

As someone who just recently bought a SP3 and will be returning it shortly, I agree with your post wholeheartedly. The thing is just awkward in so many ways and is a terrible tablet. That said, if you want a very portable laptop that you won't actually be using on a lap but a real desk and don't mind the tiny screen, it's a good option.

When you spend more than you make, you're losing money. It's not a philosophical discussion but basic math. Now, it's possible the investments they are making now will pay off in the future but only time will tell if that's true. Regardless, the company is still crazy overvalued and some people are going to lose a lot of money investing in that stock (some already have).
