  • 2016 MacBook Pro butterfly keyboards failing twice as frequently as older models

    I have a 2016 15” touch bar MBP, and for a while I thought my typing was getting sloppier, because I started seeing more typos (usually auto-corrected, but sometimes to the wrong word). I eventually did some testing and realized it was the keyboard failing inconsistently. Fortunately I bought AppleCare—for the first time in 30+ years of Mac ownership—but I feel bad for all the people who didn’t and also have this problem. Apple should just bite the bullet and fix this for free for those people.  
    I have the same problems with the touch bar but I am causing it by hunting and pecking my other 8 finds float in the air and some times get close enough  to the touch bar and it types the word on the Touch Bar in my sentence!!! It took me 2 years to realize!!!!!

  • Going all-in on USB-C with Apple's ecosystem? That's impossible -- for now

    I really love my 2016 MBP but having to carry extra pieces parts to make all my things work really is getting old after all this time!! I have a Hyperdock that I really like and a dozen usb-a/usb-c "sleeves" but it always seems I never have the adapter I need when I need it!! Just yesterday I didn't have a rj45!!
