Yes, but he has a point. Apple recalled the iMacs a couple years ago and I lost mine for six days. For a creative professional, that's a frustrating experience. Even if you have a backup machine to check the web and email, all your files are on the iMac. Ideally there'd be a low end version of the Mac Pro and a 27" screen to cure this problem, but so far not.
No, I think SDW's right. If Skylake was coming this year, we'd have Thunderbolt 3 leaks by now. If Apple updates the MacBook Pro this month and then launches a brand new form factor with Skylake, Thunderbolt 3 and wireless charging in October, Pro users will complain loudly. My guess is that if an update happens, it means Apple sees the next major revision happening in 2016.
Hopefully both machines will move to USB-C, allowing the peripherals market to move fully towards the new spec. Unfortunately, Apple's probably going to keep USB-C at the Rev. 1 speed, since these machines will likely also retain Thunderbolt 2.   Thunderbolt 3 won't arrive till Skylake, likely next year.
But the point is that Thunderbolt 3 is tied to Skylake, isn't it? No Skylake, no TB3. No TB3, no USB 3.1 Gen 2.
 Apple does not want a wide array of consumer users for the Mini. They never have, and probably never will. If companies didn't need it for server/industrial applications use, they would have cancelled it by now.
Interesting. Q3 starts on July 1 and ends on September 30.   Does this mean the new 15" MacBook Pro will be announced at WWDC but not ship till July? (It's fairly obvious that a new 15" is in the works.)   iMacs don't usually get revved till October, so I guess the current gen is the back-to-school product. It will be great to see the desktops get USB 3.1, and - hopefully - Thunderbolt 3.
Apple now has millions of newbie iOS users, who think that computers run by magic and if something goes wrong, it's because the little elves in Cupertino forgot to offer a sacrifice or something.
Point taken. We have been down this road a number of times before, with iMovie, Final Cut Pro and the entire iWork suite. Everytime, there's been weeping and gnashing of teeth when the App gets overhauled and features are missing. It is like listening to the same record over and over again. Like their penchant to replace older ports with newer ones before the market is fully there, Apple does largely the same with software. When an app gets rebuilt they introduce it to...
No, Apple was never, ever going to keep iPhoto "for all future OSs". If you thought that when you bought your Mac, you were deeply mistaken.   There's a big world of Mac applications. If you don't have the time to give Photos a chance to fill in its gaps, then find another app that works for you.   iPhoto's never coming back. Get used to that.
It worked. Thanks for the help!
