Mac Pro will finally get a reboot! (The 3:59, Ep. 204)

Mac Pro will finally get a reboot! (The 3:59, Ep. 204)

Apple's Mac Pro line of desktops has by far received the least upgrades in recent years. The $3,999 Mac Pro will have eight CPU cores instead of six, and dual D800 GPUS instead of dual D500 GPUs.

The catch? Schiller told BuzzFeed not to expect any of the company's new Pro hardware until 2018 at the earliest. The new Mac Pro is being "completely rethought" and will have a modular design to accommodate high-end CPUs and GPUs, reports Daring Fireball. What we didn't appreciate completely at the time was how we had so tailored that design to a specific vision that in the future we would find ourselves a bit boxed in - into a circular shape (which packed inside the internals in a triangular design). And now you look at today's 5K iMac, top configs, it's incredibly powerful, and a huge fraction of what would've traditionally - whether it's audio editing, video editing, graphics, arts and so forth - that would've previously absolutely required the Mac Pros of old, are being well-addressed by iMac.

AOL and Yahoo to Become Oath
Verizon is acquiring Yahoo's assets under a $4.48bn transaction, which is expected to be completed by the end of June this year. As Armstrong pointed out on Twitter , these and other future Oath brands engage more than a billion consumers worldwide.

Apple has come to believe that the aggressive industrial design of the 2013 Mac Pro was a mistake and that they designed themselves "into a bit of a thermal corner".

In a private briefing with select tech journalists in its Cupertino headquarters, Apple has finally announced plans to update its desktop lineup with a new iMac, Mac Pro and a standalone Pro display - a product the company has previously refrained from introducing.

Pence breaks Senate tie on killing family-planning grants rule
The GOP-dominated House of Representatives voted in favor of undoing the non-discrimination rule on February 16. Two Republicans - Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - voted against the 48 other GOP senators.

"We're working on [a new Mac Pro]", Schiller said. Since Apple's Magic Keyboard and Magic Keyboard rely on Bluetooth connectivity to interact with macOS via the iMac, we could see Thunderbolt 3 technology through this Type-C USB connections. And for that, we're sorry to disappoint customers who wanted that, and we've asked the team to go and re-architect and design something great for the future that those Mac Pro customers who want more expandability, more upgradability in the future. But sadly, that was the only iteration of the CPU which launched and the shiny dustbin-shaped computer was forgotten by Apple. The Mac Pro, why it has taken Apple so long to update it, and Apple's commitment to the professional market.

This all sounds incredibly promising, but neither the all-new Mac Pro or the external monitor that will go on sale alongside it will be available this year. The new Mac Pros will not be arriving this year and users will have to wait until some time next year to buy one.

British police reveal more details of Parliament attacker
Earlier PM Modi took to micro-blogging site Twitter and said that India stands with United Kingdom in the fight against terrorism. He appealed for anyone who knew Masood well or was aware of his recent movements to get in touch with authorities.

In the long term, Apple says it will release the new modular Mac Pro version alongside a Pro display. In the meantime, if anyone desperately needs a Mac Pro, they will have to settle for the current model, which Apple has listed at $2999.
