Besides the obvious (the lawsuit is BS), I certainly think Apple should generate a list of complex backup codes when setting up 2FA, like other solutions do. This way, when your trusted device is not available, or the SMS / push notification does not work (which happens rarely, but it happens), you at least have an alternative. I do not know if supporting alternative TOTP solutions (like fobs) would help. Most people would likely use an app for that and thus be back to square one.
Since the claimant uses an gmail account, security and privacy are obviously not on his list of priorities. He should sue web sites enforcing https next; encryption steals milliseconds of his useless life dozens of times every day.

I think your "Preferences" screenshot in the article nicely illustrates why Apple is not really going there. While I love clipboard managers (I use Copied on my Macs and iOS devices), they are one huge security and privacy pitfall requiring far too many options (like in the screenshot) to define a personally acceptable balance between comfort and security. I have not verified that, but by perception this tool has more settings than FinalCut.
Many thanks for that – highly informative and helpful.
I have received my new MBP (2.6 GHz i7, 560X, 32GB RAM, 2 TB SSD) a couple of days ago and I am extremely happy with it. While everybody says the changes to the keyboard are minor, I do not think so. To me it is a night and day difference. Much more quiet (maybe not in dB, but in perception) and a much better typing experience. I make almost no typing errors while I had to go back and make corrections all the time on my 2016 model.
I am not doing a lot of hardcore video and 3D stuff, I mainly need the power to run extensive virtualization projects in class. 6 cores with hyperthreading and 32 GB RAM (finally!) make a world of difference here. I can run an entire MS System Center simulation (11 servers and 3 clients) and a network simulation in Cisco VIRL simultaneously while having a separate VM doing packet capturing and LogManagement/SIEM in parallel... Bottom line that means that I no longer have to lug 2 machines around, and that my XPS 15 can go in the trash (well, on ebay) where it belongs.

As the CPUs and GPUs become more powerful, Apple needs to get away from THIN and make the MacBooks THICK BEASTS again.
