Brydge's Pro Max keyboard for the 12.9 is amazing, but even with its heft, there are still hinge issues. There must be a happy medium between these two designs that allows a 12.9 iPad Pro to be counterbalanced by the keyboard, be easily openable, and not break the hinge when opening too fast. Brydge's hinge does not seem like it will last - I've gone through one with my 12.9 and the second one is starting to show some damage. It is a real issue if you want the iPadPro to be a laptop replacement (I certainly do).
I recently was giving a presentation to higher-ups and noticed I was raising my pitch at the end of my sentences. I caught it, apologized, fixed the issue. Later in the week i was thanked for bringing it up by a manager at the meeting. Not sure what causes it but it is highly annoying to hear statements sound like questions. I need to go to Toastmasters or something.
Instead of having the iPad run MacOS, what about having certain MacOS apps run on iPadOS, kinda like the reverse of running iPadOS apps inside MacOS. That way it is on the developers to do the ports instead of Apple to re-write the system software and expect every developer to stick to a pre-defined set of input controls. The reasons why windows touch sucks 1) most apps are not designed for touch and 2) most apps are not designed for touch.
Maybe I'm being naive here, but why can't apple continue to advance the iPad system software and let the developers make apps? What exactly about iPadOS is really the cripple (besides single user, crappy file structure, no time machine, etc)? Or Is it because X application doesn't run on iPadOS? If the latter, doesn't that mean it is up to the developer to make one? For me, I'm about to go all in on iPadPro, replacing my slightly aging 2007 17-inch MBP with the 12.9 2021 "lensflare" model. I don't think there is much that I can't do on the iPadPro that I can do on a Mac productivity-wise. Perhaps there are necessary work-arounds. Is there a list somewhere that compellingly lays out why MacOS is better than iPadOS, and these things would be solved by porting MacOS to iPadPro without losses of the iPadOS benefits?
