Apple Book :: The complete walkthrough

I can't help feeling; a sad but handsome elegy for a once-great company.

I see it as an elegy of Jony's work. I am not queuing behind the long line of people who call Apple once-great. They are still insanely great for me. I know you don't like the new prices for Apple stuff in the UK. Just buy them in US-$.

Yes, well - we brought the pricing problem on ourselves, I fear. But there are some legitimate concerns over where they seem to be going with their product lines now, and it is sad to see what looks like a retreat from the high-level professional computing market.

Nick Daisley, 2016-11-20

I don't see that either. Everybody is moving to mobile, and that includes MacBooks. Making powerful MacBooks with the appropriate software serves the high-level professional market. I have seen some real work benchmarks of Final Cut Pro X‎ on the new MacBook Pros against high-end PCs with their software (forgot what it was). And the MacBook Pro would fly rings around it.

There is one market that Apple isn't interested in. Gamers. I am not interested in them either. ;-)

I would be so ready to move on from Apple. Just for the sake of change.

But where to? I dont want to babysit my computer. That leaves me stuck with OSX, which never really needs my. It is just there.
