    am I the only one who finds Memoji sickeningly kitsch?

    Honestly I look at them and all I get is a Vietnam flashback to this garbage

    So gross. Honestly I don't see how Apple's attempt is any better than that stuff, just slightly softer.

    If you want to see this sort of thing done right, look at LINE Inc

    They haven't fixed the keyboard so absolutely no buy from me, I really hate this damn keyboard and so many of my keys are starting to fail or have inconsistent feelings (some click very loud, some feel like mush) I haven't even had the thing a year and if you could see it the thing looks brand new I really look after my machines but this keyboard is just so fragile.

    Not to mention if you type a lot your hands get really tired because you have to bash the keys much harder than normal due to the lack of travel.

    Honestly no point at this stage, just get a PC and you'll be happier.

    To be fair someones output on their Dribbble account or Twitter account are not directly correlated to their ability to drive a community.

    I'd actually even say people who are prolific on Twitter probably don't really understand the value of one anyway.

    Excited to see where this is going.

    Definitely happy they're trying new things. They have a lot of catching up to do against the Surface and Matebook lineups.

    Touch Bar feels like the elephant in the room right now. Is it going to survive the keyboard redesign that has to drop this fall.

    I mean it's only on two machines in their entire lineup, didn't even make it to their premium 10K pro machine and the 13/15 inch it exists on needs a complete keyboard rethink.

    Wouldn't be the first time Apple has completely ditched an "iconic" design 2 years after it came out.

    This is more the sort of thing I imagined the iPad would do when unveiled. Not sure if it is really sustainable without Apple ageing up the OS to being a grown up operating system too though.

    This is great, holding down the backspace key on iOS literally never works out it always speeds up just at the point you want to stop at and deletes a bunch of words.

    I know 3D touch select exists but that's just another vector of fiddlyness and not always worth the effort.

    Not interested in 3rd party keyboards either, actually shocked apple shipped that seen as it was clearly a feature people stamped their feet about and then when it existed forgot about it in 2 months.

    Coffee Script is pretty much a dead language so it makes sense.
