I agree with everything you said, except for the applecare. I think you are better off not plunking down applecare dough, you much better off just sending it in for a depot repair if your ram goes south. It's a roll of the dice. Of course, unless you spill your drink in the machine. If that's the case depot is too damn expensive and applecare won't cover it anyway.

All iMacs can act as an external display for another machine. I'm using two of them for that at the moment. A quick keyboard shortcut switches it from displaying it's own video to displaying the external video. It's called Target Display Mode if you want to google it.

If my memory serves me correct, target display mode only works on thunderbolt models.

This was free speech WORKING. This was a whole bunch of people speaking out and saying that it's no more acceptable for CEOs to hold this kind of opinion on equal marriage as it would be for them to hold a similar opinion on interracial marriage.

let me consider that statement...

Free speech works by "a whole bunch of people" saying someone else's (ceo or otherwise) opinion (speech) is unacceptable "free" speech. My brain hurts!

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo.

Working...
