i heard it can go up stairs by itself

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 15:31 (six years ago) Permalink

I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

From that engadget post:

9:42AM Okay! We're in our seats and there's some Dylan playing on the sound system!

9:11AM Overall the mood is really jovial right now. It's basically a party in the U.S.A.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

price drops on all the dongles + the new LG displays - I guess apple is 'listening'? lol

That LG monitor looks pretty tasty after the price cut

stet, Saturday, 5 November 2016 02:03 (one month ago) Permalink

Agreed. I think I want of those more than the new MBP. Gawd I'm getting such a "maybe you should wait until the second generation of these" sense here.

Elvis Telecom, Sunday, 6 November 2016 10:59 (one month ago) Permalink

the inevitable price drop, the new cpus, the 32gb ram ceiling &c.

Autumn Almanac, Sunday, 6 November 2016 11:27 (one month ago) Permalink

So what's the ideal point now, price-/general availability-wise, to buy the former MBP, ideally new and not refurbished? Do they get rotated out soon? I fear this question may be terribly obvious, but didn't follow the policy in recent years.

There's nothing that can drive the LG apart from the new MBP, is that right?

still kind of dying at the startup sponsor dude earlier who was like "I ordered all my dongles" and he has all these dupes like he's never heard of a usb hub, then later tweets "btw my tech person told me I should have ordered this, apparently usb hubs exist"

idk if this will work forever since it's contingent on hooking to how Xcode can invoke the touchbar, but I was playing with this:

mh 😏, Monday, 7 November 2016 15:51 (four weeks ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

touch bar is fine. sliding volume is nice, so far nothing else matters. i miss tactile feedback but not too much, the fact that it's at the top of the keyboard so accuracy is less important helps. i'm working on something where it would be sorta useful, showing context-sensitive shortcuts depending on what modifier keys you're holding down.

force touch, though. i spent a frustrating five minutes this morning just trying to drag things. i think i eventually figured out the right amount of pressure, but file management shouldn't require fine motor control.

0 / 0 (lukas), Wednesday, 23 November 2016 17:14 (one week ago) Permalink

i agree! i was having the exact same problem with force touch. so frustrating. and when i type i keep accidentally hitting the touch bar by accident. this must've happened with the function keys on the last MBP but with less force, so i never noticed. but you don't have to hit the touch bar with any real force to have it register your touch. and the arrow keys are annoyingly placed too.

not too happy with this

the late great, Wednesday, 23 November 2016 18:31 (one week ago) Permalink

whoops that got garbled, i meant that i was hitting the function keys with the same amount of force but not enough force to get them to register a keystroke

the late great, Wednesday, 23 November 2016 18:31 (one week ago) Permalink

oo! update: disabled "force touch and haptic feedback" under trackpad settings which helped a lot.

yeah new arrow keys, why

my 5s broke*, so i am getting a 64gb SE. i'm kind of excited about it. having that extra space will be nice. somehow it's cheaper too w/ my verizon plan, i don't really know why.

*i dropped in the toilet about a month ago, it still partially worked but the touchscreen functionality suffered a lot and would fail all the time, i kind of learned how to dictate texts to siri most of the time but eventually that stopped being reliable and became such a pain in the ass to even send a text message that in a fit of rage i threw the phone and the screen shattered. it was embarrassing but i should've gotten a new phone right after the water damage anyway.

my 6s is eligible under https://www.apple.com/support/iphone6s-unexpectedshutdown/. last time they did a minor repair on my phone they screwed up somehow and gave me a brand new one, which is fine with me.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that existed - my 6S has been randomly shutting down now at like 15 - 30% battery life and I just assumed it was shitty planned obsolescence in a phone over a year old. This is kind of amazing.
