you are missing the point of the touchbar. it is a TOUCH display. directly connected (low latency) with your computer. this is vastly different than doing things with a mouse or a touchpad. djs go to great lengths for adding direct controls to their computers. but if you have ever used an iphone or ipad you will know that touch displays can add a whole dimension for interaction. i think having just a little portion of that is able to give this much-needed directness to so many more people.
