    I have my new 15" rMBP Touchbar. The touchbar itself seems quite dark/dull?? I assume they are maybe all like that - but wondering if there is any way to turn up the brightness on the Touchbar itself?

    I think the tiny thumbnails of the web pages you have open on Safari are bit pointless to be honest. They are so small and dull that its very difficult to differentiate one from the other.

    Can't do it. I bitched about the same thing. I even wrote Tim Cook about it. It's absolute ****.

    Dim. Pixelated. I can see the frame around the OLED strip, which is ****** when the light hits it at a certain angle. You can totally see there's a OLED panel under it. Among numerous other complaints.

    The idea is to bitch so much and so loud that they may take action and remedy this BS in the next iteration.

    They should have made this thing an option. (BTW, they should have also made actually ports an option also :D )

    no seriously, i can understand forcing the ports, but this? Should be an option.
    i have like zero interest in it. I use it, no problem, but meh.

    Maybe Great Apple is screwing up a little.

    What are you looking at? My TB is bright and easy to see in all applications.

    It's darker but let's not be fussy. Even the screen is darker at 50% than previous gens, but so what. This isn't a willy measure contest to brag about who has the best spec. Unfortunately that's what the Apple community sounds like whenever they upgrade.
