The Visual Evolution of the Mac Pro

Apple has come a long way since its first modular desktop, the Macintosh II, which was introduced in 1987. The designs underwent radical changes after the return of Steve Jobs in 1997. The first Mac Pro was born in 2006; however, in 2013 Apple introduced a complete redesign. Now available in a unique cylinder form factor, the Mac Pro stands just under 10 inches tall, and just over 6.5 inches in diameter. Its smaller footprint allows users to place them directly on their desks, while still providing next-gen components to usher in emerging technologies, such as 4K. Come see how Mac desktops have evolved over the years.

A Pro Photographer Who Uses a MacBook Air?

I have blogged, lectured and argued for many years that a camera is nothing more than a tool that solves a given photographer’s problem. A camera brand is not a symbol of loyalty to one kind of photography, nor is it some kind of credential for membership in some kind of “club.” The sooner each photographer starts to figure out what their particular challenges are, and which camera works for them to resolve those challenges (regardless of brand), the sooner they will start making the kind of photographs they want. Recent experience has taught me that I need to start talking the same way about the laptop computers that photographers use for digital image processing.
