Looks like we've gone a long way from the days when Steve Jobs worked for $1.00 per year salary.macky the macky said:tyler82 said:

One of the things Apple has always excelled at has been the creation of demand; sometimes false demand by constricting its own supply chain.
When a product becomes out-of-stock, it creates a situation where the product is "perceived" as more valuable by the consumer.
When people in the press can't purchase it either, then the press will write about it in a more favorable light once the product is obtained as well. This is something carefully balanced by Apple and a part of its branding, marketing, and supply chain strategy.
Look at it this way-
People know when they go to a McDonald's they can get a McDonald's signature BigMac Burger but only Apple would deny its customers the ability to tender a sale. No one in the press writes about how tasty their last BigMac burger was because they are ready for purchase.
It takes a stroke of genius to deny Dieter Bohn his ability to be the first in the office to buy an Apple.
Of course Apple didn't discard the other ways to connect peripheral devices to the MacBook itself. Dongles are really a Midstep between a new way to connect all of your devices together.
Apple has a MacBook dock they are working on. But nobody wants to talk about that new technology yet. most likely, it's built into the MacBook in based on Intel technology if they were really smart when they read what I said in the email addressed to Tim Cook about why I cannot access the three USB ports on my laptop in a virtual machine but I can only Use one of them in macOS.
This might be a very difficult item for most people to understand, however I am Malcolm Tucker. You could read about in a published book, watch me watch me in a movie, or see me in a popular television show in Britain.
that is all.
