Apple Pro Audio Applications Team "Decimated" ...
Talk about a whole lot of hoopla about nothing...
They're using strong wording to create a sensational title. What happened was that during the transition from Apple distributing Logic through conventional retail channels to distributing it exclusively in the Mac App Store, Apple laid off the Logic sales
teams. Those teams' role was to place the Logic boxes in stores (Guitar Center, Sam Ash etc..), check the location and presentation of the product in the store, create in-store promotional events, etc... all things that Apple will no longer need in the future since the move to the Mac App Store.
The Pro Audio development
teams are still alive and kicking.
