Black keys (for the back lighting and reduced appearance of dirt) and normal enter key in the USA edition please...
And this article validates the search for attention.
That mouse was awful. There was no way for the hand to feel which orientation it was in and keep it that way. Utterly ridiculous. No, Apple has never made a decent mouse. The body-button idea is equally rubbish and the secondary/right click is rubbish on all body-button mice. A mouse shouldn't click accidentally when you pick it up and set it down slightly heavily. Also, Ive doesn't know a damn thing about GUI design. He has ruined the most elegant mobile computing...
Yeah, it's all about image and influence. He's aging. He wants to have some kind of legacy on the books when he dies. Also, his philanthropy is very much based on shaping the systems he "gives" to. He's behind a few generally bad ideas, backing them as if he is any kind of expert in them (like education), which he isn't. The only thing he might be expert in is influence via money.
My companion just bought a new laptop (Toshiba). The trackpad is an improvement over the crap on her prior one (Dell Vostro), but it's really pretty bad too. The gestures suck (try changing between scrolling and pointing by lifting only one finger). Its optical drive tray is plastic and flimsy (picking up the machine makes the drive door flex and snap against the rest of the body, which is also plastic). There are four USB ports but the thing is so flimsy that more ports...

Because everyone wants a $500+ car key.
I'm still stunned by the junk pre-installed on PC laptops. I just set up a Toshiba for a friend. The Toshiba apps themselves were variously useless and extremely inefficient. It was like they had drafted a specification that said "design system tools to run in as many processes and with as many executables as possible". Anyway, PC sales are used as software/service advertising. That's problem number one for junkware.
So when are they going to go back to leaded solder? How many generations of MacBook have this problem now, total?? Mine was a 3,1. There have been endless models since then with these problems. It's kind of obvious now that the MacBooks have too many temperature extremes for the unleaded solder. The end result is more waste. Solder can still use lead when the application requires it, and this is clearly a case of requiring it.
Sapphire in iPhones... Meh. Phone or it didn't happen. Fooled me once shame on you. Fooled me twice, shame on me. Etc.
