I have a feeling the next keynote is going to showcase the touch bar even more than ever since its here to stay. It will be like emotions never going away.
Why does everyone talk about emoticons when they reference the Touch Bar? I have had a MacBook for a couple of months now, I love love love the Touch Bar and use it hundreds of times a day. I've never once used it to pick an emoticon.

Because people who can't afford things like to roll out tired untrue cliches (like banging on about USB-C dongles) to make themselves feel better.

I think there are a lot of unhappy people in the world. And denigrating something (usually without even giving whatever it is a try) makes people feel better, and gives them a tiny blip of power.

So, the rumours from one or two years ago that VMware had dissolved the Fusion team and was withdrawing from the Mac virtualisation market weren't quite accurate.
