There's still a need for something in between Apple's Mac mini and Mac Pro. That is not an iMac. Professionals, like me, that are professional consumers, or prosumers, still need something more than the Mac Mini and very much less than the Mac Pro.
The new Mac Pro went on order last Tue and shipped out today, and yeshk it's a beast !!! They sure engineered the crap outta the thing. It's a marvel of engineering prowess and excellence. Both the Mac Pro and the Pro Display too.
I had been waiting a long long time for the 2018 Mac mini refresh. When it finally did arrive, it didn't go as smooth as it should have. In spite of that, I still would have to do it again because, well.... its still an Apple. Although I'd change some things, because it was quite a mess. Here's my saga...
There have been many rumors about Apple shipping an iPhone with a fingerprint sensor under the display, and they are missing some big things that cause the whole idea to make NO sense. Adding up to - That's just not how Apple does things. And these rumors seem like more proof that some reporters and analysts still do not understand how Apple works.
Apple's Knee Jerk Reaction to Ban Vaping Apps - Apple has a very spotty record with its App Store management. Especially with app approval and rejection. And here's another one that's beyond the pale.
Imagine if Apple did THAT !!! Samsung commits more Epic Fails and gets off easy. But Apple gets hammered while competitors benefit from double standards.
More reporters getting Apple wrong. Did Apple hold a large internal meeting for 1,000+ employees on Apple's plans for Augmented Reality (AR) headsets and glasses ? Nope. I've worked at Apple, and Apple just doesn't work like that. Remember Project Purple ?
In Part 2 of this iPhone X review I’ll focus on the improvements the X brings you, over the 8 and 8 Plus and other models without Face ID, related to the new User eXperience (UX).
