Apple has begun to adopt for its particular consumer solar system what many software developers once followed as a broader marketing strategy for the consumer computing universe. Remember when Mac versions of many software products were scarce while PC versions were ubiquitous? That was because the market share disparity btwn the two platforms was enormous. Hell, brands like Intuit still follow that rule to a frustrating degree.
Apple's iSomething product expansion seduced more customers on a huge scale — though not so much regarding computers as iDevices. And the iDevices are targeted more to the overall consumer base, in which pro users are a minority.
So yeah, phones and tablets — even iMacs — are generating way more revenue than products like the Mac Pro. And if you're not a cash-cow, youse just ain't as sexy as youse used to was.
