The 2013 Mac Pro may be the final version of this model with no successor in the works.

As of September 13th, 1,000 days have passed since Apple released the first version of the redesigned Mac Pro computer.

The current Mac Pro came out on December 19th 2013, meaning that programmers and video professionals who need a high-performing Mac and buy one today will only have a couple years’ use before it becomes what Apple SVP Phil Schiller describes as a “really sad” five-year-old PC.

The password change, which focused on users who had signed up period to mid-2012, followed the discovery of a large dump of email addresses and passwords related to these accounts.

The online storage company confirmed late Tuesday reports that 68 million user email addresses and hashed and salted passwords from an incident in 2012 had been compromised.

It’s a bit of a strong measure, but Dropbox decided to take it.

On Friday, Dropbox required users who hadn’t logged in since mid-2012 to change their account passwords. The company stated that this was a preventative measure and that this wasn’t an indication that accounts had been improperly accessed.

They concluded by apologizing for the inconvenience.
