Apple drops dongle prices to make USB-C upgrade affordable

Re: Ha bloody ha

A decade ago the "pro" was a computer people used in graphic design etc because it had the proprietary software they needed to do their job, that's increasingly not the case though with more and more moving to Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere on a cheaper, faster PC they themselves can repair.

As someone who use to repair Macs in the 90s I've watched as my Mac owning friends have gradually dumped them and moved to PC, not always through choice but through necessity if they want to continue doing their jobs and not having up to a week downtime whilst a Mac is away for repair, paying through the nose for that repair (or continually paying Applecare) and then having to roll the dice on whether it's been done.

Apple have been dumbing down for a while, seems they may finally have hit the bottom of the pool.
