For a variety of reasons, this is not great news for Apple which has until recently, been able to compete with a premium-priced product.  To be sure, the company is sitting on a mountain of cash, but Wall Street wants signs of sales growth, and with the iPad Mini considered by consumers as overpriced and hints suggesting relatively slow sales so far, many are wondering whether the great times at Apple might look a but different in coming years.  There were hints that sales figures from carriers such as Verizon Wireless, and AT&T suggested iPhone 4s were outselling iPhone 5 because of the lower cost, and reduced subsidies from the carriers.  Then, in January 2013, a Piper Jaffray analyst named Gene Munster suggested Apple might consider introducing a lower-cost iPhone to compete in the global mobile phone market representing as many as 580 million customers, but Apple quickly dismissed the question when interviewed by a Chinese newspaper.

Personally, it doesn't make much difference to me, but Leap Wireless was a test case to see how well iPhone sells without big carrier subsidies.  Like many,  find the Samsung Galaxy IIIs more appealing because of its bigger screen (Retina display? Who cares?).  But the low-end of the mobile market is where most of the growth is happening in the U.S., not the high-end, a market Apple indicates it doesn't intend to compete in.  Apple mobile phones aren't really big sellers in many developing markets.

Personally, as a Gen Xer I have never been enamored with Apple's overpriced products.

This was one of the dumbest predictions, and NPR has conveniently shot holes through that predictions.

The FDA apparently spied on critics of its review process in an effort to stifle them.  Makes me question the integrity of an agency tasked with protecting the public safety ....

For anyone interested in self-publishing a book (or eBook), although copyright protection is automatic under U.S. law, registering your work is what enables you to sue for copyright infringement (if necessary).  You can (and probably want to register for $35 at http://www.copyright.gov/eco/.
