  • Apple execs say iPadOS 15 helps users to multitask with UI changes

    Throughout this ongoing debate here and elsewhere, I've been thinking about the "Finder" on the Mac, and how it's unnecessary on the iPad (& iPhone), making it simpler to use for novices. It often flummoxes novices or Windows users when confronted with a Mac for the first time (due to how the menus of the application you're using switch to the Finder's menus if you accidentally click on the desktop, for example). MS Windows, as with iOS, manages to forgo the need for a Finder (&, in the case of iOS, a Menu bar for that matter). I wonder if we'll ever see it disappear on the Mac? (or if Apple's ever experimented with that?) It's a long time hold over from the very first Mac (& before?). It's actually quite a stark difference (& limitation) between the two platforms (MacOS and iOS) that no iOS Apps absolutely need or use a Menu bar.

  • Apple's new leather MacBook Sleeve is finely crafted and high quality -- but at a cost

    I'm beginning to think that Apple Executives think everyone in the world is a billionaire, or at least a millionaire like they are. To them, $200 is the equivalent of $20 or $2, LOL. They've "lost touch" with the value of a dollar. I could afford this, but no matter how good the leather, it's not a good value. Think what else $200 can get you. Its this comparable?
