How Apple Drops the Ball
From Computer World:
There’s no arguing that the Mac Pro has fallen far behind the competition on performance, especially with graphics. Despite new chips from Intel and AMD being readily available, Apple have neglected to make an update.
Unfortunately this is a common trend with Apple. They get interested in a product, do a wonderful job launching something new, and then just seem to abandon it.
The Mac Pro is a recent example, but their monitors, until recently the Apple TV, their software, and even the iPad have suffered from this lack of consistent focus.
Apple is large enough, and has enough resources to be able to keep full time teams working on all their products. It’s crazy to me that they consistently let things slip.
