    All right, off to a meeting. Will have to catch up later. Wonder how the Apple Sign-in is going to work with certain social/dating apps that usually require Facebook login...

    If that presentation went any longer they would have had to preview iOS 14.

    Can't say there was a ton of stuff here that excited me. The maps showing street view is probably my favorite (hello Google). I'm curious to see if that will be available in CarPlay.

    Question for those who are a bit more in the know on these things than I am... do you think this means a Mac will now come close to the amount of apps iOS now runs, or is that wishful thinking?

    Re new Mac Pro:
    The bad (if expected) news for me is storage capacity. First, storage was not even mentioned in the spoken portion of keynote. Their default (lowest priced, $6K) Mac Pro will ship with a 256GB SSD! We are talking way smaller capacity than the default 2009 ($2k) Mac Pro had, 1TB if I remember correctly. And it could fit internal 4HDs, vs, by it lacking any mention in the intro a single SSD - not even clear if it is one of the user replaceable components. I was fully expecting SSD only, but was hoping for 4 user replaceable SSD slots. And of course they are not offering an Apple branded external storage device.

    Still, there is one area of hope for user internal storage - those card slots can be used for *multiple* 3rd party internal SSDs - my boot SSD on my 2009 MacPro is just such a device from OWC. My hope is that by early next year they will be offering at least 4 if not more separate cards, with reasonably priced, large capacity 3rd party SSDs. While that won’t match the 50++TB capacity the old Mac Pros have now, they will get here in the coming years, and scary fortunes won’t need to be spent for it.

    From specs: https://www.apple.com/mac-pro/specs/ Storage Configure up to 4TB of SSD storage1
    256GB SSD
    One 256GB module
    1TB SSD
    Two 512GB modules
    2TB SSD
    Two 1TB modules
    4TB SSD
    Two 2TB modules
    Up to 2.6GB/s sequential read and 2.7GB/s sequential write performance.
    Storage encrypted by the Apple T2 Security Chip.

    So they are in fact saying 2 as opposed to 1 SSD, but their max capacity is the same 4TB last years’ MacBook Pro came with with a single SSD. No word if they are user replaceable - but again, does not contradict my 3rd party SSDs on PCI slots theory

    Why would anyone care the number of apps? It’s just a number. Big deal if there are a million iOS Apps, nobody uses more than 50 and the average person probably actively uses fewer than 20...


    What apps do you want on your Mac that you don’t have now?
