The only Apple product I ever bought in 32 years on this planet was a £70 MacBook, which was already 7 years old at the time of purchase. I only did that because I wanted an informed opinion on their products, especially their software. I will never pay for an Apple product again, even if it becomes the only option.

7:50 Funny when you used to by 3.5mm headphones they would all say "iPod Compatible" like the iPod used a special jack or something. It's the same ol' jack from portable CD and Casette players, no special compatibility needed. Ahh the times before iPhone fanboys had to buy adapters to use headphones or line out to standard devices. To be fair my HTC Touch Diamond used the USB port for headphone jack, either use USB Earphones (included, I seen a pair of mine lying around) or adapter. But that phone was small and maybe there wasn't enough room for a jack, what's Apple's excuse? Can't even fit a screen on without a bezel island...

"You could make a fan fiction site! Although I'm not giving you any ideas..." That's where you're wrong, Linus. In just that moment alone the burgeoning number of ideas you've disgorged into my mind tempt me to follow your suggestion for just such a purpose, no matter how sarcastic your intention.

You guys should test the worth of the ridge wallet. I've read that, you can accomplish the same RFID protection with a couple sheets of Aluminum foil. I know one of the main features of the wallet is its size but, even that doesn't feel like a good enough reason to spend around $100 for a wallet. Legit want to know.

I think it goes one layer deeper. I think they're doing it to purposefully disgust the professional market. They obviously do not want to be a computer company anymore. You're right they want to be a mobile company. They want to design small sleek products, even if it means sacrificing functionality to do so. However they know they have to serve their core fanboys and professionals... So they are going ahead and trying to make products which are inaccessible to their core market. It makes fan boys lust, but not allow them to obtain the product... but it satisfies their ego around the brand... and then they try and give terrible performance per dollar for the professional market... potentially pushing more professionals away. This allows them to slowly phase out almost all their desktop users. Look... The second Jony Ive left... That's when I knew they lost their ability to innovate. I always said it shouldn't have been Tim who took over... Tim's a businessman... It's the same mistake they made with Scully. It should have gone to an artist... and Jony Ive is just that. Now he's gone... probably because no one was listening to him.

I just don’t understand why it would need wheels. Bolt it to a 20 dollar skateboard. Or an electric skateboard. Heck, an rc car might fit the bill. It has handles, don’t be lazy. Still waiting for a trash can to be mounted to a roomba. Kidding aside, great video!

You have to sink pretty low to come up for an (in)valid reason to claim there is reason/logic behind these wheels. I guess Apple pays pretty good sponsor money, sure place some $700 wheels underneath your DESKtop/WORKstation so your $10.000 mac pro can roll off your desk so you can buy a new mac pro with a new set off wheels, and while you are at the Apple store don't forget to buy a $999 monitor stand. I have to go now, i'm gonna mount a set of wheels under my 86" TV

In other words, Apple is a brand that lives off gimmicks instead of products and anyone gullible enough to buy their stuff is just participating to humanity's decline as a species.

When I heard about these wheels, I flipped out. ...then I looked at the price of a Mac Pro. I realized that not only can you afford these (unnecessary) wheels as an accessory if you can afford a Mac Pro, but also that a Mac Pro (base model) costs 3 times what my car is worth and I do NOT hesitate to spend nearly twice as much as those wheels on tires when I need them. ...and I need them *every year*. Yes, I spend almost what my car is worth every year just for tires. All of a sudden, I can't call the people who paid Apple $700 for a set of $50 casters crazy because I now realize *I'm the crazy one*. :)

Not talking about apple to hurt them is a double edge sword though. Even if you don't factor in potential stress from keeping it bottled up inside (YEAH KORN!!!). You're also not helping spread the hate or persuading others to dislike them. I think more should do like you, sure talk about apples shit in a bad way but be sure to include that if others agree the best thing to do is spread the word about how talking about apple less will hurt them the most. Yes conveying this message will add to publicity but providing people listen & stop discussing it from that point forward. Is how we can actually do some damage to the company & maybe, just maybe wake them up.

Apple makes good products. The problem is, they want to lock us in their ecosystem, and in the long run it will cost us a big a mouth of money. And I disagree, they prove the point selling stand for $999 or wheels for $700, that they don't care about the consumers. If we take Rolex for example: They want you to have the best quality and performance from their products. Apple just made a mistake and try too fool everyone else and is correct they are getting media attention, but for the wrong reason. For me Apple will never be premium brand and I will never say they are equal to Rolex or the rest premium brands.
