Usually – to save time – I immediately assume every design move by Apple is stupid, dangerous, or likely to damage the ozone layer.
I read today that they were ditching the function keys from their new range of laptops.
My knee-jerk greybeard instincts made me joyously utter, “You dumb whippersnappers…”
Then I realised they were completely right.
That means either I’m becoming a better person, or I need to change my medication.
P.S. I’ve still not completely forgiven Apple for removing floppy disk drives about 15 years ago without asking me first.
And – deep down – I still believe that it does a POWER OF GOOD to modern youth today to have to memorise the actions of 12 function keys multiplied by various combinations of SHIFT, CTRL, ALT modifier keys – for each different application.
I mean to say. I had to do it, and it didn’t do ME any harm.
Sorry nurse. I didn’t mean to hit you with my cane.
I’ll be good now.
Is there jelly for dessert tonight?
I like jelly.
