    Not true. Animoji don’t have negative utility. The Touch Bar does - each time it is touched by accident when you are touch typing and screws up your work or work flow.

    That is, Touch Bar is worse than Animoji.

    Technology must be fun and simple. Apple understands it better than anyone else. Hence they are making these cool features. I love these...

    This would’ve been somewhat relevant if you could use animoji/memoji outside of the iMessage app. To me personally it’s worthless since you can’t even save the video without having to message it to yourself, never mind if you wanted to post it somewhere. It’s like they wanted to make something that the “cool kids” would want to use like Snapchat filters, but gave up after an hour into the development process.

    Great! More Animoji instead of better Siri *sarcasm*

    Hopefully Apple does not add the cost of developing these emojis in the next iteration of iPhones! :D

    Why do they all look like they just did a line of cocaine?

    These Animoji, Memoji, whatever-moji, is SO typically for the Cook Apple area, totally creepy. Perfectly in-line with all these Apple Watch presentations of that "Flash" Guy, the U2 moment, and the iPhone Xr.

    I cannot wait to have Forstall on stage saying: "Let's make Apple cool again."

    Please no, anything but that. There’s a reason Jobs didn’t choose him as his successor.

    Actually it's 8.7% and it's just higher revenue thanks to the fact it was the holiday season and Macs are more expensive than ever.
    So I wouldn't say Macs are doing great.

    Intel already launched their most relevant 9th gen CPUs.
    The rest of the line will only be some petty refreshes.
    So it looks like Apple is waiting for nothing.

    Except the Mac isn't doing great and that's been born out the last few years.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2019 ---
    Jobs wasn't the brightest when it came to successors. He hired on Scully (a bean counter), was shown the door and Apple went into the shi*ter until he came back.

    He put another bean counter in charge prior to his death that only gives a **** about money and could care less about making great products, panders to every social cause out there and uses the company as his personal soapbox, is ineffectual at best and is scared of confrontation.

    Forstall needs to be hired back and get the company back to making products that people love.

    No, Intel has only released the highest end unlocked K-series parts.

    Apple is waiting for Intel to ship the rest of the 9000-series that they need for the majority of their iMac lineup, and also AMD’s 7nm Navi GPUs. Until those parts are shipping, you won’t see an iMac refresh.

    You do know that it’s not the same team working on everything right? This is just one team doing it’s job

    Assuming for the sake of discussion that Apple isn’t making products people love, what makes you think Forstall is the right person to do that? Apple Maps? Skeuomorphism? Ok, I should tone down the snark.

    He seemed to do ok with iOS and OS X development, but I don’t see any evidence that he’s CEO material.

    Now this is innovation. Instead of sitting around drawing cartoons, how about rebuilding iTunes? Or building a database for a truly searchable and useful Mail application? Or building a great Mac Pro that is expandable? Or making displays again?

    Which the begs the question - make products that are loved by whom?

    The Apple Watch and Airpods are clearly selling well, but if you went solely by sentiment here at Macrumours, you would be under the impression that they were the biggest flop ever by Apple.

    The reason I heard for Forstall being forced out was that he basically could not get along with the other executives.

    If that’s the case, then it’s just as well he’s not back with Apple. People like him are not worth the social drain on the rest of the company, however valuable a talent he may be.

    At least Apple is working on something important. Who needs a Time Capsule or an Apple Display?

    Post some real content and then we'll talk.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2019 ---
    Mac just posted almost 10% revenue growth and an all time record. It's doing insanely great, particularly when you consider the time Mac has been a thing.

    Again, post facts. "Mac isn't doing great" with a key word bolded isn't a fact. I told you Mac grew 10%. Now you come back with a fact if you have a counterpoint. Don't just come back with yet another opinion backed by nothing.
