Reply To: Whither Apple?
He probably qualifies for the scheme, but money is the big issue. Apple do not normally dole out these things for free and Apple kit has a high entry fee, He also likes kit that he can use for both business and pleasure.
What he really wants to see is X-code on ARM, as he says that would enable him to rationalise his hardware and eliminate the need for a Mac Pro. (I have no idea how or why, this is the case, he just volunteered that particular tid-bit to me!). I guess it has something to do with his using the Apple platform for various AI-based apps as that is the area he is now pursuing.
