Then, there is the weight factor that would likely come with such device.Ok, ok. Breathe, now.All kidding aside, folding phones end up too thick in one’s pockets and then too big in one’s hands. Unusable in one hand, and unwieldy in two. The folding doesn’t enhance the phone-using experience.Now, a folding iPad I could probably get behind. But the added cost has to be justified by some improvement in workflow or experience.Folding otherwise just becomes a gimmick that doesn’t improve the user experience.
Jony Ive was great for Apple, but I want to know who, specifically, approved the 2013 Mac Pro, who was behind removing all the useful ports on the pro portable machines relying on dongles for everything, and who was responsible for the laptop keyboard disaster from 2016 to 2018?Was Jony also the main pusher behind form over function such as laptops that are thin they can’t have the ports everyone uses? What about iPhones that bend far too easily (I’m talking about iPhone 6 Max of which mine was bent from the factory right out of the box).
Some recognition should be given to the A15/M1 Apple silicon team. That’s a real winner that will keep Apple competitive.

I will keep my eye out for some old retina iMacs.
I appreciate these reviews because they show compromises are to be made one way or the other.32” big, but only 2K resolution.
For $100 more, what do you really get? A bunch of ports you probably only ever use the ONE you need and a gimmicky lighting system.Sometimes comparing apples to oranges is useful.
in 5 years, a used Apple 27” display will command far more in price than any other brand. The Quality will show in time to be far better than the original cost.
