with the new ipad, apple keeps simplifying its product lines


nineteen years ago, steve jobs unveiled his simplified mac product strategy of a box divided into four squares: power mac, powerbook, imac, and a question mark that would eventually be filled in by the ibook. these days apple can’t fit its key product lines, let alone individual products, in four squares. but there are strong signs that apple is in the midst of executing a strategy to simplify its product lines and, ultimately, make it easier for consumers to understand what products apple is offering.the mac evolutionfor a long time, apple has split the mac laptop product line in two, with the non-pro laptop (ibook, macbook) separate from the pro model (powerbook, macbook pro). the introduction of the macbook air confused things quite a bit, given that it wasn’t powerful enough to be a pr

apple's new macbook pro keyboard is giving some users fits


why it matters to you if your macbook pro keyboard isn't acting as expected, you're not alone -- and it might take you a few days to get yours fixed.when apple designed the 2016 macbook pro, it made the new machines thinner than ever. in fact, the company made them 17 percent thinner, creating a svelte and light frame that fits better in the hand and the backpack.at the same time, the reduction in thickness forced some compromises, most notably in terms of smaller batteries, fewer ports with no legacy support, and the use of a second-generation version of the ultrathin keyboard first introduced with the diminutive macbook. apparently, the new keyboard is causing some real problems for users, and not only in terms of what it feels like when typing, as macrumors reports.more:apple’s macbook
