I recently started a new company in the US. My heart has always been in California, but from a business POV it didn't get a look in. Florida or Texas. Florida won.
Your distorted feelings about California are not new and yet Apple completed an HQ right now the road from its previous HQ. So why would Apple do that if the writing was on the wall that companies were fleeing CA because, as you put it, is a "dead state walking"? Do you think Apple is that daft at operations? I don't, but if you do you probably should sell any stock ASAP.
Losing some people probably isn't a bad thing for such a populous, desirable, expensive place.
Traffic is also not a reliable indicator. I'd say part of the volume is due to people driving between multiple jobs to try to make ends meet, or simply driving around looking for a job!

Still can't keep up with the A12X from last year, and the A13X is right around the corner. I really would like to see an A13X powered MacBook. It's time for Apple to take their complete control of the entire stack (hardware/software/dev tools) and apply that to an ARM MacBook.
The MacBook Air uses a 7 W 14nm i5-8210Y (2 cores / 4 threads, 3.6 GHz turbo) with UHD 617 graphics and LPDDR3-2133 RAM.
The base model 13.5" Surface Laptop 3 uses a 15 W 10nm i5-1035G7 (4 cores / 8 threads, 3.7 GHz turbo) with Iris Plus G7 graphics and LPDDR4x-3733 RAM.
Besides, 8210Y is already one year old, where Ice Lake was just announced.
Cinebench R15 Multi:
- i7-1065G7 (i5 should be slightly lower) - 830
- i5-8010Y - 285
3DMark Fire Strike (1920x1080):
- Iris Plus G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU) - 3156
- UHD 620 - 947
Also, I can get mine running at ~299 (average) in a loop, a score of 830 is not 3X and that's the highest configuration. Probably not an average score either.
Also, runs Windoze..
This and even worse no Sketch app.
I'll try with the mac pro mini 2019 specs that would make semi/pro apple users happy:
Core i7-9750H, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Radeon Pro 555X/560X
+ free ram slot - easy to upgrade ram & ssd.
Basically it's a MBP15 configuration ( MBP15 $2,399.00) minus screen ( you don't need another screen, so iMac is a no go ).

They hope that Apple customers are truly sheeple who just buy what "influencers" show off.Apple is failing because it is pandering to fools, hoping that "a fool and their money soon part." They forgot their customers are artists, creatives, directors, engineers, authors, teachers, scientists.
