First up, let’s get this out of the way: I haven’t laid a finger on the Touch Bar on Apple’s new MacBook Pros. They’re not in the wild yet, and since I wasn’t at the event last week, I’m among the vast majority of people who haven’t had a chance to check out the new feature first hand.
Is that about to stop me from some wild speculation? You must be new here.
The truth is, I’m a bit skeptical of the Touch Bar. I believe that Apple has carefully researched and engineered it and that the company has a vision of what people will use it for. But what I’m curious about is whether it will be a technology that actually changes the way we use our Macs, or whether it’ll simply fall by the wayside.
