    Ugh, I hope this isn't a return to the full height left/right keys. Honestly it's the only thing I dislike about my 2018 MBP keyboard, and was looking forward to my next replacement having the inverted-T of the current 16".

    MAYBE just maybe they'll do something to make it easier to feel the different keys like have the bottom half raised or something, but probably not if the new iMac keyboard is an indicator. Oh well.

    This is a judgement call, for sure, and I can appreciate the opposite POV on this issue but, overall, I wish the media--especially Apple-focused media like AI--wouldn't aid hackers by publishing stolen documents. Commenters here, who seem tho think that publishing this document negates its value as a "hostage" item, are missing the point: there's a lot more the hackers stole that has yet to be made public. The widespread dissemination of this MacBook document shows what will happen to everything they have if the ransom isn't paid. They'll publish on the dark web, and then let the mainstream press do their dirty work from there. Don't want that to happen, Apple? Fine, pay us $50 million. 
    Tim Cook should just call up Chairman Xi and ask him to hunt down these hackers and have them painfully killed.   
    What is wrong with you? A death sentence is absolutely NOT a proportionate response for industrial espionage.
    Edgelords gonna edge.

    Its entirely proportional, it would prevent it happening again and deter others from trying it

    That's not what proportional means.
