Yesterday the Oscars gala was held, probably the most important film gala in the world, both in terms of its relevance and its audiences of millions of people. The next day all the media showed the most relevant of the gala and those phrases that could have gone unnoticed, and among them we have the words that Taika Waititi left us about Apple .
Waititi has been awarded the Oscar for Best Screenplay adapted by Jojo Rabbit and when asked what writers should demand from producers he left a sentence to remember: ” Apple needs to fix those keyboards “ .
Apple has been an unexpected protagonist at the end of the Oscar gala, although perhaps Tim Cook does not feel very well after hearing these words. Years ago Apple introduced the new butterfly keyboard on its MacBook , a keyboard that was intended to revolutionize and has ended up being a real headache.
These keyboards are noisier, have a shorter travel and, worst of all, often break down as they are more sensitive to small particles that may enter between the keys. And this is something that Thor’s director, Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, didn’t like at all.
” Apple needs to fix those keyboards. It’s impossible to write on them, they’ve gotten worse. It makes me want to go back to the PCs. Because of PC keyboards, the recovery of your fingers is much better. Hands up you still use a PC? You know what I’m talking about. It’s a much better keyboard. Those Apple keyboards are hideous “.
What Waititi may not know is that Apple is already working on it , the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro has changed its keyboard and most likely the 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will also be renewed this year, leaving the butterfly keyboard behind.
