with... proprietary connector? not sure about that

but goes in a module, who knows what that means

it looks like it's backwards compatible, aside from the power part but maybe other companies can make cards that support it? Cooling will be interersting

Well it does seem like they listened to what people actually wanted. Doesn't seem to be a major screwup like the trashcan was, but we'll have to see if it ever gets upgrades.

Matte option too, which is "innovative." Instead Apple etches the glass itself so it will be less likely to fuzz the images.

so what's in the box for video? hopefully you can get an internal GPU card with some power and upgradable when available.

The Nucheesegrater looks insane. I hope that it doesn't become stale. I bet the price tag is also insane.

Jesus Christ, $11,000 just to have a base Mac Pro. It better be amazing even with base specs.

itunes splits into 3 apps

Three apps: Apple Music, Apple Podcasts, Apple TV.

plug your phone, and nothing happens. Choose the proper app manually to sync

Looks good so far but I will wait. Apple always finds a way to hide a maggot in the honey.
Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

Let's hope not. As nice as iPads have gotten, I still prefer using a Macbook Pro.

It looks like Apple is trying to go this way though... and you'd get a better keyboard then.

So apple didn't invent the term. I still don't like it.

Who wants things to be complicated?


Watch designers. A complication is a functional puzzle to solve.

nobody outside of watch enthusiasts is going to know that. Tell your grandma that her watch now has complications and she's not going to be super enthusiastic about that.
