  • Inside Apple's fantastically fast new Mac Pro

    Rajka said:
    I've nothing against Apple targeting the pro market, even though its current hardware offerings are anything but pro, but I really wanted a prosumer desktop Mac to replace my cheese grater.
    Why wouldn't you buy a 5K iMac or iMac Pro? You're not going to have any prosumer software that won't run significantly better on those machines than a 2012 or earlier cheese grater. I bought the low-end standard 5K iMac and it blows away my old 2009 8-core Xeon Mac Pro. 
    Because they have a built-in monitor. The Mac Mini is too small and not powerful enough. The form factor of the Pro cylinder is perfect for the prosumer market - it just needs updating.

  • Inside Apple's fantastically fast new Mac Pro

    I'd like to see the 2013 Mac Pro (cylinder) updated with Thunderbolt 3, USB-C, faster RAM, faster graphics cards ... not difficult to do - and in an amazingly compact and quiet form factor. It would be the Prosumer model. I just don't buy the line in the article that "While the design of previous 2013 Mac Pro wasn't physically large enough to accommodate the heat dissipation of increasingly hotter chips" ... have you seen how much bigger the cylinder is than a Pro notebook? Or compared to an iMac Pro? And how much better it is at dissipating heat?   Apple has just been lazy in not updating the Pro cylinder.

  • Tim Cook defends choice to pull Hong Kong police monitoring app from App Store

    There is an interesting article on the BBC about Apple caving into Chinese political pressure at:  https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-50009971 
     It quotes long-time Apple commentator John Gruber as saying in reference to Tim Cook's email: “  I can’t recall an Apple memo or statement that crumbles so quickly under scrutiny.”  Rather makes a mockery of all the claptrap about solar panels on the roof when they side with totalitarianism.

  • 'iPhone SE 2' not dead, but won't be the same size as the original says Ming-Chi Kuo

    So basically this article has nothing to do with the SE2. Instead of being about a small-form SE phone, the article is about a large low-cost iPhone.
