Apple upgrades 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro, M2 Max
Apple replacing 13-inch MacBook Pro with 14-inch 'M2' model, leaker saysI'm amazed by how many people just accept that the most expensive laptop lineup in the world now has a big, ugly, rectangular dent in the screen. An ALL screens. Only Apple can get away with such a crippled design, it's really an inverse emperor's new clothes:
"I can't see a big black square, can you see a big black square?"
"Square, what square. I don't see any square".
'iPhone SE 2' uses new flexible LCP antenna design claims Ming-Chi KuoApple is skipping decent size screen devices because people don't spend so much time using content on these and so we are not as valuable as users. It's all about money for Apple it seems. They offer a ridiculous amount of different devices but none to satisfy the huge amount of users that don't want a brick in their pocket.
It's such a pity.

Apple SSD in Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pro fixed to motherboard, not removableI have been a loyal Mac buyer for 20 years but more and more is being taken away. Why is that I can get a fantastic Lenovo Thinkpad with OLED display, a proper keyboard, all the memory I need, a semi matte display that doesn't work like a mirror, for the same price as a MacBook Pro with yesterdays technology and a stupid gimmick touchbar. Apples other hardware offerings are running upgrades in slow motion not even knowing when there'll be another. And Mac OS? For last several iterations nothing has happened only loads of irrelevant features. To me Apple is without direction on the Mac hardware and OS-side.
Apple brings about the end of the physical Function key with MacBook Pro Touch BarI saw a lot of redundancy with the touch bar. One example was to bold your text in mail. But using af touch bar for this where you have to remove your gaze from the screen to locate the bold-icon in the touch bar is inferior to using cmd-b on the keyboard. A lot of the touch bar functions seemed like this. But I guess this is the way it goes. Computers for the masses not for power users. I really hope I'll be proved wrong, I just don't see this as a step forward.
