One thought on “MGG 629: Not All USB-C Is Created Equal

  • Just to clarify the debate/discussion of MacBooks Pro vs MacBook Pros, it would depend on if Pro is part of the name or an adjective of the MacBook. The reason Attorneys General is correct is because the noun is Attorney and is what is counted, not the General which is an adjective of Attorney. So I believe since Pro MacBook would just as descriptive as MacBook Pro I would lean toward MacBooks Pro being more grammatically accurate, but I would most likely find myself following John F. Braun’s logic of going with what sounds better, “MacBook Pros”.

    thanks for a great podcast!!!
