Apple just told the world it has no idea who the Mac is for
Owen Williams

Thank you for this. A lot of this ideology has already been apparent inside the machines for the past few generations of Macbook Pro. I almost jumped ship to Windows last Spring when my 2012 Pro needed replacing. I don’t like the way Apple is disregarding its power users in the hardware department as well. I used to be the expert: able to upgrade/replace internal components as needed. Now as nearly every component is soldered to the logic board, if any issue comes up I have to line up with everyone else to consult with whatever “genius” Apple has on staff that day. This also has an impact on the long-term viability of the machines. Without the ability to replace individual damaged components, parts become more rare, and repair becomes more prohibitive.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
