Unless he's outright lying, this line really makes it sound like they have no plan to merge the two:Maybe TC took some MiraLax to unclog his pipeline.
I guess this gives me some hope, but I kind of worry about the possible changes Cook has in mind for the Mac.
Please, please, please, keep them separate. The Mac OS has already had some crappy changes to make it more iOS like, such as iTunes. I would hate to see the two merge.
"To merge these worlds, you would lose the simplicity of one, and the power of the other."
I wish I can believe that. If Apple is planning to use ryzen, I will forgive Tim Cook.Basically guys, there's no need to worry.
Yes a few products are pretty long overdue a spec bump, and the platter drives have long overstayed their welcome, but Apple are in a significantly stronger position now than they were in 2011 — and I don't just mean financially.
A new Mac Pro every year since 2011 would have paled in comparison to their current achievements with in-house chips and so many other things. It's not to say they couldn't have done both, of course! But it's sometimes good to take a step back and see the larger picture.
Rest assured, the new Mac Pro/Mac Mini will come; hopefully along with a more consistent silent hardware upgrade cycle!
Funny, as none of the creative pros I know of would touch Linux or Windows with a bargepole. That's because most creative pros just sit down do their work with a familiar OS and solid hardware/support, rather than whine on message boards. Fancy that.Your priorities ARE elsewhere. It's not speculation. Apple failed the creative pros long ago by simply not releasing products. People switched to Linux and Windows.
& countless thousands of people have plans on bailing Apple if this doesn't pan out.Tim Cook said:has plans to "do more" in the pro area..
I don't know if you're joking but I 100% believe this is where they will go next. No need to make a decent Mac Pro modular tower if they can just add the "Pro" moniker to an iMac, claim it meets the needs of the "future" professional and then silently discontinue the current Mac Pro.Probably an iMac Pro coming at some point.
I'm uncomfortable with the FACTS.I'm uncomfortable with how willing people are to deny presented information to maintain the Apple-hate narrative in their heads, and go as far as accuse the CEO of bald-face lying.
2003 PowerMac 7,2I love how you blame Tim. Even under Jobs the Desktop was rarely updated.
