Re: No $35k MacBooks???
@Commisio44354 It's within our power, yes. Certainly can't allow technology to control you, although I'm not one to talk. Lately I've gotten myself addicted to all kinds of games on my iPhone. That's how I relieve my boredom!

MacBook
The MacBook pro of 2013 ranges from $1,299 to $2,799 on the Apple website. Higher prices on third party websites. It seems risky to offer a product that increases significantly in price. Apple is definitely taking a risk. I wonder what Steve Jobs would say about the price tag.

So the MacBook is replacing the failed MacPro of 2013. I am curious what new feats can be acomplished using the computer. Is it designedf for graphic designers, video game designers? It seems like Apple went to the extreme to try to makeup for the failure of the MacPro. We will have to wait and see how it fares.

Well Apple has clearly identified who the target market is for its new MacBook for $35,000. It is not the average consumer. I wonder how much the annual maintenance costs?

Apple does provide quality products but is a computer worth $35,000. I am sure you can get similar features and quality for a cheaper price.

Re: No $35k MacBooks???
The key point you noted is "Wisely"--whether that in fact occurs or not is within our power, isn't it?

Re: No $35k MacBooks???
@Commisio44354 Well, the French invented a word that makes boredom sound beautiful: ennui. It does create a restlessness. The only thing is that the outcome of boredom may not always be a positive thing. Someone that's bored could decide to commit a crime, or maybe someone just decides to hit the bottle. For the most part, boredom can lead to some pretty exciting things I think.

Re: No $35k MacBooks???
@Commisio44354 As far as "Secrets to Making Technology Serve You," I agree that technology can tend to control you. But it's not easy to get away from this when people expect you to be connected to them 24/7. The article is correct. Technology, when used wisely, can make us more effective and happy people, not the opposite.

Re: No $35k MacBooks???
If you are good at it you can make a lot of money, but I think too many people get blinded by the dream of being rich that they lose it all. I know there are laws in place that prevent people from day trading unless they have a certain amount in their portfolio.

I've thought about day trading but for me the risk is not worth the reward.
