Damn shame. One of Apples best kept secrets was how rock solid those routers were, at least on the latest firmware. They fell behind on features in the last few years, but still seemed to have a lot more uptime than even the most modern equipment by some others, thanks maybe to the FreeBSD/NetBSD core. Off to Eero I guess.One wonders if the Mac Pro which also hasn’t been updated in 3 years will get put into a can that looks like itself.That’ll be a shame.
