Apple – it's true: iPad Pro slabs freeze when plugged in to charge



They just don't test anything, happens all the time.

Shiny shit but just doesn't work. OS X is flakey as and don't even get me started on OS X Server!

Scientists love MacBooks (true) – but what about you?


Whilst Macs may "just work" in a standalone environment, I find that this argument soon diminishes when you start to have to manage them to provide a consistent environment.

The apple products (I've not tried Profile Manager recently) just do not work on any kind of scale. And Munki (similar to puppet i believe) is overly complex. Nothing like GPO in the windows world. This is where they fall down for me - the hardware is great, the price not so, but you can't have it all..

Mac Pro fanbois can rack 'em and stack 'em like real sysadmins


It may have a decent GUI, but Apple have destroyed the OS completely. Nothing works once you scale beyond 25-50 users/systems.

HP mounts channel attack on EMC: We're a Bugatti, they're a VW bug
