Yeah but they grudgingly bow to pressure. Kinda like how Apple has acknowledged a right-click since OS X.0.0 but a right click Apple mouse didn't exist until what? 2011?
We updated three Macbook Airs to the bad keyboards and have already replaced two of them. They are shite. Meanwhile I have like a dozen cheap Chinese "magsafe" USB adapters in my life and they're fucking spectacular. You'd think Apple could figure this out but they're too busy being special.
