Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

... and does anyone other than Apple even make units with thunderbolt? Oh wait, that's right -- Vendor lock in, another of their hallmarks. If you can afford to throw away 10K on a 3K computer, you can probably afford to drop a grand on $300 monitors as well.

... and from what I'm hearing displayport over thunderbolt is a unreliable mess; but then Apple never was all that great at video despite the lies they spread from the day the original Mac was introduced.


You don't need a monitor vendor to support thunderbolt, just mini display port which is supported by a number of manufacturers. It goes over the same cable. Not had, nor heard of any problems myself.
