  1. Jeff et al:

    Why don’t you and Bryan invite John M and John K onto Apple Context Machine for a round table discussion on the pros and cons of continuing the Mac Pro. I suggest two important tools in order to make your discussion fruitful and fact based (I know, fact based discussions have lost their popularity in recent times, but I still find them enlightening):

    1) Get some real numbers, if possible, on: a) estimates of Mac Pro instal base or sales; b) on the percentage (prevalence) of creative professionals ditching the Mac; c) a heat map on the halo effect by iOS vs macOS vs all other devices. This should reduce speculation and allow for thoughtful, evidence-based recommendations on continuing the Mac Pro

    2) Remove the family rating for this episode. Otherwise, John K will have nothing to say.

    Should be a great show.
