The original iPhone didnt, even though Windows mobile and PalmOS did at the time.

For the record, Apple's desktops have had copy/paste since the Lisa.

100% this.

Not that I can support Apple in any way, but you really can't blame a company for charging people what they're willing to pay for dumb items. Blame the idiots for being willing to pay for dumb items in the first place.

The money keeps rolling in on those wheels for Apple.

#2 their debt is insane, even for a "diverse field" company. They cannot even afford to service the debt maintenance let alone make an actual dent in the debt itself. - Internet Stranger

I would give Apple the benefit of the doubt here, they're certainly not stupid to overlook possible damage resulting from an attachment
If they spent enough time mastering tilt/sliding mechanism for the $999 monitor stand, $400 wheels should have some sort of mechanism preventing unintended movement without use of cheap but effective brake lever

One less thing digital creation pros need to figure out like "it's got wheels, why isn't it moving?", the better
Then again, most pro gears have some sort of lock on their wheels...
probably need to splurge more on the rack mount version and proper rack with industrial wheels in that case

NVM...they did actually just sell regular wheels and charge $400
it really sucks to be a sheep I guess

I just wish they'd provide a standard 'consumer' desktop Mac for those who don't want a Mac Mini or iMac... just give me proper expandable storage and decent cooling.

I know, its difficult to understand.

My previous Manager had the latest iphone, smart watch, macbook & an ipad. I'm not sure if he was trying to turn himself into a walking, talking Apple store.
