[Jeremy Garchow] "Apple has no issue with dumping products."

Oh yeah. Let's Shake on that.

[Jeremy Garchow] "An extremely modest MacPro refresh was made available at WWDC, not afterwards. "

Shirley, you jest! No. It wasn't even extremely modest. It didn't get close to that mark. It was a blundering, infinitesimal PR refresh that kind of took place. One that they had to apologize for on the same day.

[Jeremy Garchow] "shamed in to making a new MacPro? I don't see it. "

The Developers were quite upset and very vocal about it. And, they have quite a bit more pull than video editors.

[Jeremy Garchow] "Since the decision was made to keep the older tech on the shelf, it seems to me that someone at Apple has a plan. "

Why? They kept Shake on the shelf for years, and they didn't have a plan. They just knew, instinctively, that they couldn't quite kill it, so they just let it languish and get long in the tooth.

[Jeremy Garchow] "What Apple was shamed in to doing was removing the blue "new" tag off of the MacPro on the Apple Store a day or two after WWDC.

That's for sure. And they should have been ashamed of it; it was a chiseler's move.

[Jeremy Garchow] " It allows doing more with less despite what Gallagher argues."

Yeah, well we'll just have to disagree about that.
