They are however very good at bricking your apple products. Apple used to be good. Those days are gone, along with Steve Jobs. Now it's just garbage in, garbage out.
This x10. I'd like a Troll button too, but you can't have everything.

Something's a bit fishy. Hope it serves as a wake-up call to our bozos in Washington, DC.
"Apple has no obligation to "dance with who brung you" as the saying goes, as much as we might like. As a result, the 2019 Mac Pro will be the best Mac Pro for Apple, like the 2016 MacBook Pro was and remains, and not necessarily the best for you, or me." Yeah, that theory worked really well with the 2013 Mac Pro. If they're not making products that consumers want, they might as well stop making them.

lkrupp said:Were we really expecting anything different to happen? How many times have the technorati and so-called “pro” users condemned and vilified Apple for their design choices only to wind up with egg on their faces when the sales figures are released. Those same critics are now questioning the validity of these reports. How could something that was so denigrated and panned by the elite be selling well?
I’m comparing this to the recent election campaigns. The media, the intellectuals, the polls, the pundits, the elite all predicted a slam dunk for Clinton. It was a done deal... until the votes were cast.

For me upgrading got me, a better screen, more storage, better speakers, more ram, and more performance. My 2012 MBA works fine, but i thought this would be a good time to upgrade... I ordered a full mbp 13 wtih 16, 512 ssd, i7 processor maxed out...
Granted I don't consider myself a true pro like so many do here. I use my MB's and iMac's for management of my Photography, and other stuff like studying using virtual windows, linux, oracle boxes, and just the normal email, web stuff like most users. I guess that makes me a sheeple in some peoples eyes. I am ok with that, cause i got my new MBP.
