I regret to say (given that I recently purchased a decked out 15" when I determined my previous one was more or less not workable) that it appears a number of innovations are on the horizon in terms of their being worked into rMBPs. Among them, USB C--which would have great utility, allowing us to possible do away with bulky power adapters (?) and not worry about which direction a plug is plugged in-- Touch ID--which would probably simplify pesky processes of password management that tax all of our time and mental and finger energy, and seems plausible given discussions at the cybersecurity summit and with the widespread use of them in the phones (given how we can observe a trend of iOS/iphone innovations working their way into macs)-- a fanless design, perhaps one or two generations of processors down the line from the current gen, and perhaps a form factor redesign that is even thinner than the current one--and Force Touch--a nice touch, which I list last and least (though it is likely first to be introduced!)-- In addition, partly due to some of the above changes, I would expect further improvements in battery life (no brainer, though perhaps all of them are). Sounds like a lot of stuff that would really fit in with and simplify my life-style. I wonder what their introduction has to do with broader turns in the economy and why they are getting incorporated at this particular time. Does anyone think water-proof or more-weather-resistant designs are likely? I see this as possible given the likely eventual fanless design and the removal of yet another moving part--the trackpad clicker. Given that apple isn't afraid to modify keyboards and that a water-resistant port is easy to conceive and clearly possible (though perhaps a little more frustrating than a water-vulnerable port) to make, there seem to be few obstacles left! Perhaps as the new machines with said innovations would have no moving parts besides the keys and screen pivot, they could likely make the machines much more durable than they already are. Another plus. I wonder at what rate they will be incorporated. Retina seemed just around the corner for years before the first rMBP...and precursor talk about higher resolution screens existed even years before the concept of "retina". I just wish they were incorporated a few months ago, or that I'll be able to justify for myself the purchase when they are. Ha. Discuss your predictions and analysis of the (perhaps near) future rMBPs [specifically with respect to these recent new MacBook and recently discussed cybersecurity innovations, to demarcate this from superficially similar discussions] What do you see as predictable based on these (and perhaps other) recent innovations?
