  Or maybe you are just a little bit too obsessed with Mr. Phil Schiller? I found his comment to be spot on! You probably don't follow what the media and Wall Street have been saying about Apple in the last year. This comment was not only warranted, it was welcomed and applauded. Apple has been the punching bag for media d-bags and Wall Street so-called "analysts" for not being innovative, and if I were a senior VP at Apple I probably would have made a similar statement....
  Tim Cook stated clearly in NBC's Rock Center interview that bringing manufacturing back to the US is not a cost issue, it's a manpower qualification issue. He said that manufacturing in the US would not materially raise costs. He said the reason companies like Apple no longer manufacture in the US is due to a lack of qualified workforce. So your argument is not valid here, assembling the Mac Pro in the US - given the small quantities that are needed to fulfill orders -...
  I think Apple is very correct to offer this in a single CPU configuration. If I remember my history, most Mac Pro users have been clamoring for better and faster GPU options rather than more CPUs. I will speculate that the majority of Mac Pro sales have been of the single CPU variety, and with the monster power of these dual GPUs (7 teraflops of compute power?) they can surely be utilized to assist the CPU when needed.   Apple's pro market is primarily animators,...
Prior to Apple, nobody else used this rubber-banding technique. It's easy now, in hindsight, to say oh that is just so obvious. Well, apparently it wasn't because in all of written history, nobody utilized this technique until Apple. So yes, they should get the spoils and be able to protect this most unique idea. It is, after all, an important part of the OS and an integral part of the UI. Samsung is a sack of horse s**t for having no creative ideas of their own prior to...
  Legally they must say "assembled" if a certain number of internal components come from outside the US. So this is not a choice for Apple, it's a legal requirement. It would be utterly impossible to ensure the majority of internal components are manufactured in the US. So give them some credit!
The new Mac Pro is a brilliant and deceptively simple design. Of course it's not for everyone, but Apple is very wise here... they designed a Mac Pro that is for the vast majority of pro users. What this means is that the new Mac Pro is not designed for those who need it to be rack mountable. It's not designed for someone who needs 24 cores of dual CPU power because 12 cores are more than enough for 99% of professionals who buy Mac Pros. Apple has certainly done its...
  The Mac Pro is for forward-thinking people.
Thoroughly useless service if you are not able to play whatever song you want, when you want. I don't want a passive Pandora-esque experience. I want to be able to play whatever song on earth that I desire on-demand. If Spotify can do it, Apple can do it better.
  Wow, you assume a lot.
  I guess you missed the critical part of why it was designed as a cylinder. Real pros must not pay attention.
