Thrilled But Not Thrilled

So Apple have launched their redesigned MacBook Pro during their “Hello Again” event. Don’t get me wrong I love the idea of the Touch Bar and having Touch ID for unlocking etc. is great but there’s one thing missing – MagSafe. 

I know Apple are keen to push USB-C and that’s cool but MagSafe, for me, had been one of the best innovations Apple has ever brought to the table. To see it discarded is, for me, a backwards step. I’ve lost count the number of times this feature saved my MacBook from a hefty fall. Hopefully 3rd party vendors will fill the gap here but honestly Apple, why?

Whilst I’m really looking forward to travelling back to England tomorrow one thing that doesn’t escape me is the fact that it’s our first ever time on a plane with Chloë. Furthermore this isn’t a small trip we’re going on either and having flown a few times I know that the one thing that makes a flight tougher is a screaming/unsettled baby. My hope is, aside from takeoff & landing, Chloë takes to air travel well but this scene from Watchmen did pop in to my head when I thought about it last night.
