Ok so i just read an article on the from page here thats an interview with Craig, Phil and Sir Jony and then a vision for Apples future plans for the touch bar came to mind. Every time I read an article or interview and the subject of touch screen for macs the answer is always "its not practical". He is right Touchscreen works on a phone or tablet as you hold it close to you, you do everything on that small screen, laptops and desktops more so you are distanced from the device and you have a separate area you interact with (the keyboard) that is far more intuitive plus your not obscuring what your looking at with your fingers. I have tried pc's with a touch screen, it doesn't feel right and its awkward, I type and then move my hand to the screen to scroll... hmmm felt very awkward to me. In the interview Jony states that there are great things ahead for touch bar. Watching the presentation yesterday I thought the touch bar was neat but I also thought it was kinda cramped. There are many professions (and activities) where you not only use a computer but a large specialized peripheral for things like film editing or colour grading, etc etc, your working on your computer but you also have this specialized peripheral to help you do a specific task much faster, and these specialized peripherals usually cost a lot. My prediction is that in a few years the full mac lineup, Laptops but also desktops will have a touch control centre. Imagine the laptop with an oled screen for the entire keyboard area, not just the function keys but where all the keys are. Writing an email, or a word doc its a keyboard, editing film footage and you get a full panel of specialized controls (not just a strip where the function keys are), Creating digital art the Touch Control centre can give you all the tools in the control centre or switch to a wacom like canvas for you to create your art (obviously apple pencil compatible). They can also release a magic keyboard 3 or a touch control centre peripheral for the desktop macs thats the OLED control centre. A move like this from Apple would make sense to me as they always seem to take an idea say "No thats not going to happen, its not practical" and then a few years later they hold a special event recount the story of the masses asking for touchscreen on macs (or whatever it might be), how it wasn't practical and then unveiling their solution which bypasses the limitations, makes them looks like geniuses fixing the world as we know it and the collective masses praise Apple for being so cutting edge. Anyway thats my prediction I am no authority, I'm not in the industry, I am not an expert that makes predictions quoted by the media outlets far and wide unlike KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who seems to always predict the painfully bloody obvious and most likely details about apples new releases and all the media outlets seem to lap it up like newborn babies to a teet..."umm I predict that there will be a new MBP at this event and its going to be a a significant upgrade" http://www.macrumors.com/2016/10/25/what-to-expect-at-hello-again-mac-event/ Holy **** Ming, how do you know this... where are these predictions coming from, does Steve talk to you from the beyond? We haven't had a MBP update in over a year, we expected one 6 months ago and the MBP hasn't seen a meaningful update in over 4 years, might as well predict the type of fruit the company will use as their logo for 2017 if you want to play it really safe.
