"Teardown of Apple's new 13" MacBook Pro reveals 'Force Touch' trackpad, shared tech with new MacBook Air"   How do you reveal something that's public knowledge? Apple's own videos show more than this teardown.
 Nope.The new MacBook is 0.52" thick.The MacBook Airs (both sizes) are 0.68".
Force touch doesn't require any more flexibility than the existing iPhone LCD has. There is no need for OLED.
It's a stretch to conflate "Human Factors Anthropometry" and "Advanced Medical Research". If they're really the same, then I'm doing advanced medical research every morning when I step on the bathroom scale and sigh. It makes perfect sense that, as Apple devices get more intimate, Apple has a better understanding of the ergonomics. If we are on the cusp of something new here, it's the potential widespread adoption of simple devices to monitor things we've been able to...
The iPod Classic comparison at the end of the article doesn't make sense. A Pono player with 128GB of Flash can't hold nearly as much music (in its preferred uncompressed format) as an entry level iPod Touch (16GB).
I imagine he's got the Bose Mini connected to the audio out of the Samsung TV, not directly to the Apple TV. That's how we use our sound bars.
Wouldn't it be prudent to criticize a move after you know if one has been made and what it is?
With Snowden claiming Apple devices have NSA back doors...       https://bgr.com/2015/01/20/iphone-spyware-edward-snowden/   ...allowing the Chinese to examine them and proclaim otherwise provides a credible rebuttal.
An Apple iTouch sensor in a laptop need be no more vulnerable than in an iPhone. A jailbroken iOS device isn't much difference than a hacked Mac OS device.
Your solution depends on air resistance. A phone dropped from your pocket or a table top would hit the floor in half a second at less than 10mph. That's too soon and too slow for aerodynamics to have any effect on an object as dense as an iPhone. Try flicking a badminton shuttlecock off a table as a first test of your theory.
