  • Watch: Up close with the 2016 MacBook Pro's 2nd-gen butterfly switch keyboard & huge Force Touch tr

    I have had the new laptop for a week now.  Like many here, I was not well disposed to the keyboard.

    But let me tell you, it is GREAT.  Best keyboard ever.  I am sure my speed and accuracy have improved !

    Still wish the sound were a little less, but as someone said above, that may be part of the tactile feedback necessary for true accuracy.  We will see.

    The keyboard is a sleeper.

  • Executive leading HealthKit, other software platforms leaves Apple

    Wow that's sad to hear. 
    I would love to know why she left.

    My opinion is that the health technologies path is the right path for Apple. It fits perfect with its devices and services. A way more important way to use their mountains of money on than a car or VR.
    Everyone needs health services and the data and solutions would give Apple the revenue avenue stability that Wall St. punishes Apple for. They need not be so "new gadget" demand dependent.

    i know the health industry is a red tape and regulatory and political hell, but who but a company with the funds like Apple can be as positioned to go there? I hope they have the real "courage" to go there.
    Totally agree.  This is a MAJOR growth area for Apple, and a contribution to life in a significant way.
