Mac Pro, though many seem to be doing “woo” and going ga-ga over it, seem to be a fail a lot of serious professionals who use Mac Pro for actual professional work.

But on the bright side, the newer Mac Pro has made an impact enough to make a Japanese garbage can a hot selling item in Japan.

Argue that “you were Jobs, it was not issued such a product” and talk Steve Jobs that, because was opposed to the trash can to during the life of their “Chance Jobs critic” but many, but the first place double It is not related to the triple Jobs.

Became a big topic in today’s announcement, a completely new design.
