Well Apple, has done it this time. I spec'd a fully loaded Retina display MacBook Pro, maximum Flash memory and max RAM, every bell and whistle you could could want. I pretty much spent as much as it was possible to spend. I use my Macbook every day for big presentations and have used it with the Apple remote for years...until now. In its infinite wisdom, Apple has simply made the new top of the range massively expensive laptop incompatible (their words) with the remote. It is mind-numbingly stupid. There must be an enormous number of users that want this functionality. What on earth? My MacBook is now getting pushed off the presentation stage by computers from other manufacturers for this simple ridiculous failure. Hope Apple thinks again and fast.
