Episode 5 – Apple make Education great again

A follow up to Henrik Carlsson’s microcast Make the Mac Great Again
Apple are not doing well in the Pro space but also they are not doing well in the education space. Cutting off the supply of graduates that want to work on the Apple Platform will also hinder the Pro market. Cutting out the need for Pro Apple products! This is not good!
