$4,999 for the display. Plus $999 for the stand. Plus $999 for the optional matte option.
I wish Apple had announced an “Apple 5K Display” in 2016 rather than partnering with LG on the LG UltraFine 5K Display. I still hope they’re planning to release what’s essentially the UltraFine panel (which I assume is basically the 5K iMac panel) in an Apple-branded case. But given the way the display market has played out over the past 2.5 years, and given the displays that most companies tend to buy for Mac laptops these days, the UltraFine is a fantastic display and it’s insane that you apparently can’t get them anymore.

I really enjoyed Steve Inskeep’s interview with Carlos Monje, Twitter’s head of public policy this morning. “Why do the users who know your service best, commonly describe it as a ‘cesspool’?” *Five seconds of dead air followed by a dodge.*
The new Chrome UI is really nice. My favorite tab style was the one with the angled sides with slightly curved corners, but this latest approach is pretty solid. I like that they moved the Google ID into the main bar and gave it a menu. I think the tabs could stand to lose some vertical space in order to line up better with the window controls though.
