Windows is an absolute UI mess now. Which is sad, because Microsoft did more to advance the state of the GUI in the '90s than Apple did in twice the time.
Unfortunately Microsoft has crippled its OS with hidden controls, peek-a-boo UI, and major usability regressions. You can't even group applications under the Start menu anymore, or set up your own color scheme. WTF?
Apple suffers from many similar blunders, and is hurrying to degrade its hardware to the point of unusability. This embarrassing "touch bar" is just the latest degradation of Apple's line, and symptomatic of a company that's not just out of ideas but ignoring obvious enhancements it could have made instead. Instead of deleting a dozen keys from an already gimped keyboard to add this brain-dead "touch bar," why didn't they make the giant trackpad work with the Pencil? Now THAT would be useful.
Macs ARE PCs.
And they were bullshit then. It wasn't until a couple of years ago that Macs even detected a new device when you plugged it in. As far back as the '90s, Windows would detect a new device and prompt you to insert a driver disk or offer to search for a driver. Plugging a new printer into a Mac would result in... nothing. You had to scrounge around for a driver and install it manually.
And there's STILL no software uninstaller for the Mac. Pathetic.
The author apparently doesn't know what a PC is, or he'd know the Mac IS a PC.
Not the most credible source.
It is NOT a holographic display.
The "module" idea has been tried for phones and has failed. It's dumb. Anything that a user would want to carry around all the time should be built into the phone.
Anything else should be a separate device. That's essentially what you have after you bulk up the phone with a bunch of crap, which presumably can't be used concurrently anyway because there's only one expansion interface (unless they can be daisy-chained, which creates even more laughable bulk).
