  • MacBook keyboard failures could end with introduction of glass panel keyboards

    Nearly nobody uses the Apple (Magic) Mouse - soon MacBook users will need to attach an external keyboard to type efficiently???
    Sounds like a very bad idea - I would prefer the MacBook Pro to get a little bit thicker to get more space for key movement...
    But hey - at least it will look gorgeous...

    How do you know, since Apple doesn't release figures for mouse sales?
    I know enough (pro) users - none of them use it because of erratic input - of cause there are consumers that may be using it.
    Interestingly I observed some consumers using a new Mac with track pad with the default (gesture) configuration - nearly all of them have the problem that they trigger actions without intend.

  • 2016 MacBook Pro butterfly keyboards failing twice as frequently as older models

    I had the keyboard (and with it the top case and batteries) replaced once under warranty.

    After three months the cursor down key is unreliable (when not hit exactly in the middle) again.

    Unfortunately Apple seems considering (patent) going to a touch keyboard - I don't have any interest in toy computers (and being as unproductive as on an iPad)...

    I think Apple should start to go for market share (means lower cost devices) again, this would also increase services (app sales).
    Currently it looks like most iPhone sales are coming from existing customers that upgrade (or don't upgrade).
    I don't believe selling iPhone 7 / iPhone 8 at discount helps, because they look old and are comparatively expensive when you look at full screen display devices from other manufacturers.
    An iPhone SE with full screen display and Face ID would be great.
    A lower cost iPhone X sized device should also drive sales.
    No way. Competing on price is a losing game.
    I don't think they need to compete (= match the price of the competition).
    But the problem is, the new models just got more expensive than ever and a small device is missing at all. The XR is nice (I own one) but quite big and heavy.
    They definitely need a successor for the iPhone SE.
