This will be a much welcomed change if they are actually changing it to an action button that you can program to do anything you want. An absolutely useless switch for most will now be an infinitely useful shortcut button for all. Those that still want it to function as a mute button can use that as their shortcut for the new button. Yeah, you won't be able to look at the switch to see if its muted or not anymore, but progress always has its "costs," you'll get over it.

I think before these make it to live surgery however, they will be MUCH more useful in training scenarios for surgeons.
Can one company agree to their terms or negotiate with them one on one rather than waiting for the whole industry to negotiate an agreement? If so, Apple should give them favorable terms and get them to end the strike against only Apple. Then Apple would be the only production company actually producing scripted fiction in the entire industry and it could work out in Apple's favor. We know they have the near-limitless pocketbook to do so. I honestly don't know if this is even feasible or if I'm being naive here, but to me it sounds like that could be a good path for Apple.
