        1. I appreciate the sarcasm, Peter. Obviously for Apple does need another FIVE. 😉

          But I will be long gone in 2019 from purchasing an Apple computer again.

          After reading your fine posts, seems like you may have already switched or are on the fence. Still, we both seem to maintain a glimmer of hope …

          1. Glimmer – more like a dying ember. The Mac Pro is on pro life support and like Chuck Heston in PLANET OF THE APES when one does show up in 2019 or early 2020 I have a feeling “we may not not what we find.” You can almost count on it.

            Right now I am coasting on an upgraded & borrowed 2010 Mac Pro but later this year will be getting that PC Workstation simply because there’s no way Apple is going to return to a tower or cheese grater approach. No mater how many pros go marching through Apple’s halls and let them know what we need they will simply not allow it. They prefer to tie user’s hands behind their backs. Best of luck to you on the switch as well.

            1. I hear you loud and clear, Peter. “Ember” is a great analogy.

              I’m coasting on an older MacPro myself, as well.

              What ticks me off is the focus group approach you brought up. All Apple has to do is read comments from a few posts here and the roadmap is CRYSTAL CLEAR. And it took Cook five years to talk about it, seriously?

              My other concern is the makeup of the focus group. Will it be stacked with Apple sycophants or more conservatives and independents that will really tell it like it is full throttle. Nah, probably Cook would never stand for that and talk nice over imported bottle water and fresh veggies.

              Good luck with your transition and I won’t be far behind you if Apple FAILS our market, AGAIN.

              Apple owner since my Lisa …

            2. Yes that’s my concern too is that they will draw the wrong and convenient conclusions from “pros” they’re paying to the way they want to do things rather than what pros really want and need.

              Captain Obvious could have built a better Mac Pro in 1/4 the time ’tis true. Ultimately a computer is just a tool and you have to pick the right tool that works best for you. Even if sadly Apple doesn’t make a model that works for you. I will still have and use Macs but when it comes to my road burning pro machine I go where I have to, not where I want to. And other pro friends of mine have done or are doing the same. Apple just took TOO DAMN LONG.

              Mac owner since 1992 (boy how I loved that first Mac – a Powerbook 170 with a real trackball inside!) Took it to London and dazzled the natives with it while working on a movie.

            3. My sentiments exactly fell in love instantly in the early days. Heady, high tech that wowed everyone.

  1. Congratulations to the market in general for the highest marketcaps today for a good handful of tech stocks. To give perspective, some then (Nov.24 2015) and now (6/1/2018) marketcaps:
    AAPL: 662.7B->935.1B
    AMZN: 315.6B->796.5B
    GOOG: 523.7B->780.2B
    MSFT: 433.6B->774.4B
    SNE: 34.1B->60.5B

      1. 2015. Nov. 25, 2016 marketcaps were:
        AAPL: 596.1B (yes, AAPL took a large dip)
        AMZN: 370.8B
        GOOG: 530.9B
        MSFT: 470.6B
        SNE: 31.7B (SNE flailed a bit)

    1. MS is on a roar, but Google and Amzn’s “noise” covers their ascent. They don’t make a great phone, or good tablet, but I’ll wager they’re a “real” AAPL competitor for future tech…not AMZN/Gaggle.

      1. You’re right. AMZN and GOOG are competing more with each other in the larger ecosystem outside of the average user’s view. MSFT and AAPL are a ‘closer’ match as competitors with their main businesses being more visible to the average user.

  2. And don’t forget that the #2 most valuable stock above—Amazon—has a valuation based on a P/E of 267! Apple’s is a mere 18. NOTE: The latter of these two companies actually makes enormous profits RIGHT NOW. If AAPL (a real/bankable/proven company) were valued the same as AMZN, its per share price would be $2818! Can’t wait to see if Jeff B’s company EVER turns profits remotely comparable to those of Apple. Very, very doubtful in my mind.

    1. Gleefully happy today because of great job report (best since 2000) and crying two days ago because of Italy’s problems and tariff uncertainties. Glad to see AAPL reach new highs, tho.

  3. Paging Tony Sackanuttin, paging Colon Gillis, paging Michael Blair to the white courtesy phone for a message…….

    Yeah baby, where are allllll the “appppple is doomed, one trick pony, everybody has a smartphone” BS analists NOW!!!
