The eGPU is exciting as well. At least we are moving in the right direction.

If additional revenue REQUIRES substantial improvement, then there's an incentive.
...whereas Avid is an example of how it can go the other way. Old bugs persist and the features added are not the ones users want.polymnia said:
Adobe, Microsoft are good examples.
On the other hand, Final Cut Pro X is sold as a "product" rather than a "service" and it has improved significantly since its disastrous launch (or so I'm told, I don't actually use it myself).
Recurring billing is absolutely not an assurance of development that is beneficial to the user.
And that's not what "begs the question" means.
I wrote to an advertiser about a commercial that used the phrase "begs the question" to mean "leads one to ask." I got a reply, but instead of saying, "Whoops, thanks. We'll fix it!" or even "Well, the commercial is airing now so we'll have to live with it." the rep chose to defend the error with the tired old "colloquial" argument.
Making a mistake isn't stupid, but willfully rejecting correction may be.

Instead, when Apple introduced lightening in iphone 5, Apple reversed the placement(male connector on cable side adapter and female inside lightening port). Overtime, lint/dust get collected inside iphone's port blocking female connector pins creating charging issues. By moving to smart connector, Apple can solve this. Other scenarios is reverse lightening male/female orientation or move to USB Type-C.
dogman said:2018 - seriously? Read other articles that it's early 2019. So it's takes over 5 years to design a new Mac Pro? It was pre-announced to keep users from abandoning the Apple environment. Way too late for me - bye Apple.
While I'm disappointed that Apple let so much time piss away, I'm tickled that at least they're on it now.
