No Escape? Microsoft is About to Eat Apple for Lunch
Eric Elliott

Apple’s decision to not go the touch route is a compelling one — that it’s tiring. That’s essentially why the surface machines either tilt or come apart, to change that orientation. Even then, if say a Mac did the same thing, the OS would be the same uneasy fit for useage with touch. It would have to prove faster than a keyboard and trackpad solution. Using touch based machines, it really doesn’t. The only advantage I can see is using Photoshop or other drawing/manipulation apps where the stylus makes the most sense. But really, neither Microsoft or Apple have solved how to integrate all these features in a way that logically makes sense in the way the first iPhone make touch just fall into place. Tim Cook is wrong though — as a final vision of computing, the iPad Pro isn’t (yet) it.
