    Well, yes they're charging $5000 for a monitor ($6000 if you want the anti-reflective "nano-texture"), but at least they toss in a VESA mount for free!

    haha lol jk, the VESA adapter (a metal plate with holes in it) is $200, and the monitor stand is $1000

    It's as if they are testing the waters to see if people are dumb enough to buy something that expensive.

    In related news the $6K cheese grater is ridiculous.

    Holy stromboli, $6K for a monitor, $1K for a monitor stand, $6K for a cheese grater. That's $13K and we haven't even discussed Apple-branded peripherals and cables yet.

    I get that they are a premium brand, but I've always thought of them in the realm of Citizen vs Timex, or Mercedes vs Toyota ... this new stuff seems more like Rolex vs Livestrong bracelet, or Bugatti vs Pinto.

    Here's a nice article better articulating my point. I'm buoyed by the fact the audience did NOT react favorably.

    Man, Jobs was an asshole. It was good for business, it was good for making products happen. It was good for inspiring respect in certain types of people. But he was a huge asshole.

    I hate the hero worship. "I don't want your opinion I don't care... and you'll never be here again"...
    Response: THAT'S AMAZING! I wish somebody did that to me.

    WTF? No its not amazing, its cruel and mean and says everything you need to know about corporate culture in the great USA.
