I don’t think of USBC as being more prone to failure.Also, my experience is that I’ve come to really love the dongle since it tends to ease the stress between the device and the computer ports. So YMMV. Just my 2 cents. 25 year nonfiction, entertainment, lifestyle, news and documentary professional editor. I’m not sure what group you speak of but “professionals” aren’t some monolithic block of click-ish gatekeepers.
I’m pretty sure if you purchased a movie and had it vanish from your library you’d be pretty pissed. Customers should at least be notified that it’s going to be removed and given the chance to download it. I know for a fact your average consumer would feel ripped off. I’ve had it happen and yes it does indeed feel like a scam when it does happen, but then again I have over 200 movies on iTunes. The movie lost was some outdated SD only thing I purchased way back when iTunes videos were 640. I can’t even remember specifically what it was. So I also know that it’s not a widespread issue, but it does happen and I’m not so sure it should be allowed.The statement from Apples attorney is a load of crap. The exact opposite of the statement is true. No reasonable person would assume they are buying something but still not own it.

What would it take for Apple to create its own separate 500 core GPU SoC or maybe only a 100 core GPU with the ability to use several of them in a blade setup. There's nothing stopping Apple, other than patents, from making whatever they want to any way they want to. Look at the Mac Pro. It's a fantastic workstation.Of course you don’t have to spend $14k on one. I purchased one for my studio for about $7500 including some aftermarket upgrades. I’ve owned many Macs since the time they used to be beige and the new MacPro is basically the absolute best Mac ever built. The performance is top notch (it’s not always just about benchmarks) and there are a slew of other reasons you failed to even include in your “analysis” like noise level(which is basically 0 ), top notch components, build quality and materials, overall design (the slip cover chassis is brilliant), expansion options and aesthetics.
