But, but, but. Apple is late to the folding phone market. But, but, but Samsung is brave by being first. Really innovators or something. End snark . The crass double standard in the tech press is obnoxious. Had this been Apple there would be screaming headlines of #FoldGate. The stock would have tanked. Calls for Tim's head. This incident just reconfirms my belief that most of the tech press are blathering shills.

I have this keyboard/case for the 12.9" iPad Pro and just used it on an overseas trip and I love it. The backlit keys are outstanding on a plane, the kickstand gives you a wide range of positions and the pencil holder is great. I have Apple's Smart Keyboard and this keyboard is better. The multiple positions and backlit keyboard are the top selling points for me. Apple's Smart keyboard and silicone case for the back are thinner and lighter, but their functionality is much less compared to this offering. I'm glad I waited for this version. I tested the Logitech Create in-store and didn't like it.

I mentioned that there were other ways, but didn't go into detail. It just wasn't worth it. He was able to do what he needed to do.

Remember when wearables at CES were the next great thing in fashion and lifestyle that was going to change everything? Or 3D TV was going to change the way we consumed media? For all the billions spent by these big companies I was hoping for a little more I guess. Till it does I’ll buy furniture the old fashioned wayand go to a furniture store and try stuff out. Who is using AI successfully right now? Big businesses where I suspect were we are the furniture! I will probably wait another year before upgrading I guess.
I think over the 3 or so years I had iPad Pro 1 and 2, I counted two (2) accessories (edit: other than Apple Smart Keyboard) that used the connector: Logitech dock and Logitech Slim Combo case. Am I mistaken? Was there a third?
If this is a close estimate, then what, really, hath Apple killt? Not much.
Today's announcements left me feeling Apple were focused on cosmetic, "fun-sumer" apps for iOS and macOS rather than pro-level updates. Had this been announced, it would have been more thrilling. The idea of a more pro-level iPad Pro starts with a complete rethink of the way files are handled (I hate the app-centric approach - try transferring a file from iCloud Drive to Google Drive on iPad Pro). Of course, this would require a whole new file system to be compatible with Mac. So given this news, there is some hope on the horizon.
