Rant alert: Really wish Steve Jobs was still with us because his replacement just hasn't got a clue about what joining the Apple ecosystem means to people ... I have been an IT Professional since Microsoft had con-current DOS, Novell had BNC connected systems and modems weren't even 56k ... but finally had enough and moved to Apple in 2011 after buying an iPhone and iPad mini, suddenly the tunnel had light! So in mid2011 I invested in a mini mac server because I had no need for a laptop or need the power for a Mac Pro, I could do all my out-of-office stuff on the iPad. That meant investing in a thunderbolt display, magic everything, airport express/time capsule and iPod hifi as by then my CD collection had been ripped for iTunes. If i needed more power than the iPad then I could always take the mini, keyboard, mouse and HDMI cable to hook up, with me. First the best sound box on the planet, iPOD Hifi demise - couldn't charge a iPod nano, no thought to update the docking element just drop it...1 have 4 and 4+ airport express so sound around the house since 2012...bugger me Sonos wouldn't have got a look in and now we have a Siri HomePod...oops how much biz have Apple lost out on! The 2012/2104 mac minis become almost un-upgradeable ... but still have more ports than most laptops! Then the iconic Thunderbolt Display is replaced by a PC monitor....so are MacBook users happy to spend upwards of £700 on a 4K or £1180 on a 5K? Probably not as it doesn't look or feel Apple! Last year they dropped the airport express, why? It will still sell as is and most 'users' don't actually need anything faster unless they're streaming 5K movies 24/7, in which case fit some Cat6, some might still want an AP with the optical airplay port and USB. My mini iPad is almost pristine despite the battering it's had in my board or work shorts and I semi retired so no longer need to support 2 data centres whilst in Monaco but I could do with more than 16Gb and an Apple pen rather than draw with my stubby fingers ... at the moment no mini iPad on the cards ... Samsung do you still have a Galaxy that fits my shorts ? ... so like so many others not wanting too but being forced to jump ship!!
