"do you guys agree with me? I have to prove a point to this Mexican guy on the internet. Btw you're fired if you don't agree with me"

:P I have a 7, seems fine to me, though it took a while to get used to the non-mechanical home.
Being lazy is bad; unless you still get what you want, then it's called "patience".

I don't threaten to fire anyone. I've already done that so its just baked into everything I say. -_-

I finally got to play around with a Macbook Pro w/ touchbar last week.  It does some pretty cool things, but I couldn't help but feel like it would just be faster to just use the pointer and click on something like normal instead.  I dug the Safari tabs being on there, for example, but....why would I poke the touchbar when I can just click the tab using the trackpad?  Can those actions be changed, or are they fixed? 

Basically I'm trying to talk myself out of trading in my old (2014) Pro for the new hotness.  :P

New toys, iPhone X with Face ID and a bigger screen in a smaller body. $999 for the basic configuration though and that's probably well over €1100 here. :hmm:

I might finally try out the apple watch though, seems like a fun toy now that it has LTE.

Changes in the new iTunes

Learn about changes to Apps, iTunes U, Internet Radio, and more.

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps—all without a Mac or PC.

You'll find these changes in the new iTunes:

    Apps: Looking for your past iOS app downloads? Learn how to redownload apps on your iOS device.
    iTunes U: Collections of iTunes U content appear in the Podcasts section of iTunes.
    Internet Radio: Your Internet Radio stations appear in your music library's sidebar. Click Edit in the sidebar to show or hide Internet Radio.
    Ringtones: iOS 11 supports redownloading ringtones directly to your iOS device, without the need to use iTunes on your Mac or PC.
    Books on Windows: Books on iTunes for Windows are managed in iBooks for iOS. Learn how to redownload books on an iOS device.

Manage apps and other content

You can find iOS apps, ringtones, and books (PC only) that you've already downloaded in your iTunes Media folder.

If you have an iOS app, ringtone, or book that's no longer available for redownload, you can move that content to your iOS device while plugged in to a computer with a USB cable.
