Oscar-Winning Screenwriter Taika Waititi, Asked What Writers Should Be Asking for in the Next Round of Talks With Producers: ‘Apple Needs to Fix Those Keyboards. They Are Impossible to Write on. They’ve Gotten Worse. It Makes Me Want to Go Back to PCs.’
This clip is making the rounds this morning, with good motive. It hits dwelling. Watch the entire video — Waititi is clearly being a bit glib with the whole premise of his reply, however he’s not joking. He’s a author and writers actually care about keyboards.
I’ve been saying for years now that Apple has achieved extreme reputational hurt to the MacE book model, which successfully is the Mac model for most individuals, particularly writers. Yes, there’s a brand new keyboard with scissor-switch mechanisms in the 16-inch MacE book Pro. It’s a pleasure to sort on. But we’re nonetheless months away from the relaxation of the MacE book lineup being up to date to use that new keyboard. And that’s a presumption on my half, that every one MacBooks will get the new keyboard sooner reasonably than later. It actually wouldn’t make any sense in the event that they didn’t — however the entire butterfly-switch saga has by no means made any sense.
Apple might change each single Mac in the lineup to the new keyboards tomorrow, and folks would nonetheless be joking about MacE book keyboards for years to come.
