Mad Macs: No enthusiasm for the Mac Pro

Apple has failed again to deliver exactly what someone wants! When will the company learn?! It’s very simple: you read the online manifesto and then you get to work! How much simpler could it be?

Writing for The MacObserver, John Khelt decries Apple and its pundit-enablers.

“Mac Pro: All Apologies, Signed Apple Pundits.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Jason and Aaron.)

God I hate Apple pundits.

They never talk about what I want them to talk about. I am the last good Apple pundit.

Khelt never actually says who it is he’s talking about in so many words or so many links, since most of his links go to explanations for his pop culture references or to other MacObserver pieces. But he does drop a few hints.

…Pravda-like arranged podcasts with Apple executives…

Some would call them interviews but, no, no one tied Craig Federighi to a chair and demanded he answer questions. (If The Macalope had him tied to a chair his first flight of questions would mostly be about hair care, to be honest.) Federighi was the highest-level Apple executive to appear on podcasts during WWDC, having been on episodes of The Talk Show and AppStories. It’s not particularly surprisingly they didn’t discuss Mac hardware on the latter since it’s hosted by the world’s foremost iPad enthusiast.

Latest case in point: the pundits’ blindness to the new cheese grater Mac Pro ignoring Apple’s core enthusiast users.

Apple’s… core… enthusiast… users.

Core.
