    Apple probably considered the Mac Pro to be part of the Power Mac family. The Power Mac G5 had the same aluminum form factore as the Intel based Mac Pro.

    Didn't they also leave out the MacBook, MacBook Pro and the Mac Mini?

    They left out the Macbook Pro and the Mini, you're right.

    Maybe the mini is going end-of-life too? Lol

    I emailed Tim Cook last week asking what's up with the Mac Pro.

    I'll let you know if I ever get a response.

    Maybe if we all did that, he'd get the message.

    You sir, are an optimist, and I applaud you for it.

    Unfortunately, anything addressed to Tim automatically goes into trash, if you're not a shareholder.

    May be they believe that the iPad Pro is actually better, that's why they product the update the iPad Pro, but not the Mac Pro. :p

    Was there a separate e-mail for each other type of Mac that was omitted from the video?

    ;)

    No it doesn't. He answers his emails. I've corresponded with him before and it was personally him, not an assistant.

    Did you ask him how that Vulkan support is coming along? Or why Apple haven't bothered to update OpenGL in 5 years?

    Well, I got Steve to respond to me once with a blatant lie.

    Keep pushing, Maybe Tim will revive the Moribund MacPro with your prodding.

    that doesn't seem to be a list of current products.. lots of end-of-life_d stuff in there.

    so probably try to stretch the logic in yet another direction ; )

    You misunderstood, I'm not prodding for anything. Just merely stating that he does read and respond to emails at least sometimes. We've communicated about social issues and the future of Apple in general. He has always responded to me. The future of the MacPro is dubious at best. I would look for a completely new line if they were to decide on a new mega-power system in the distant future.

    Maybe he's more concerned about social issues than a Professional Computing platform. I suppose that's laudable, maybe he can turn Apple into a philanthropic organization.

    If he doesn't act soon, there won't be any need for distant future "mega-power" Apple systems, because Pro Software Developers will have abandoned them in the near future.

    Probably he feel ashamed to mention the gigantic cheese grater and black trash bin into those video. Soon they added car into those history video~

    Really they skipped over a lot of product lines. I saw nothing about the Mac II, Classic, Quadra, Performa, LC, Centris or Laserwriter lines.

    I like that the jazzy 4/4 backing music includes people shouting "Maps!" on the upbeat.

    @velocityg4 did you ever have to lift a first generation LaserWriter? It is so heavy that even with twenty-first century compression algorithms, a two-dimensional representation of the printer could not be streamed without breaking the Internet.

    Right? I miss some old school electronics, like HP RPN calculators & LaserJets, 80s Bang & Olufsen, tank-like Mercedes. Back when 'heft' certainly was an indication of quality, and not a race to make things as light & cheap as possible.
