TechCrunch:  Apple has leaked its own big announcement with two hidden images of its upcoming MacBook Pro in the macOS Sierra 12.1 update. MacRumors first noticed the images in the system files. Meet the new MacBook Pro. As expected, the MacBook Pro features a second mini display above the keyboard. It replaces the function row and should change depending on what you’re doing. In the example, you can see that the display (probably called the Magic Toolbar) prompts the user to confirm the Apple Pay payment with the Touch ID sensor. …

These photos also show that there will be a Touch ID sensor in the new MacBook Pro. You can see on the second photo below that the Touch ID area is a bit darker. It’s not the same color as the rest of the display, so I think it’s not part of the display. But it doesn’t look like the home button on your iPhone or iPad. When you rest your finger on the home button of your iPhone, the metal ring senses your finger and triggers the Touch ID sensor. Surprisingly, there’s no ring around the Touch ID sensor. Something like 3D Touch could potentially render the metal ring useless though. …

This has been a long time coming.  Touch ID is one of the better technological advancements over the past few years.  It’s only a matter of time before everything is touch ID.  Soon enough we’ll be paying at stores with just a fingerprint identification.  It’s gonna be fuckin awesome.  Generally when these new products come out it’s really not much different than the older version, yet people will still flock to stores days ahead of time to get the newest biggest baddest laptop on the block.  Same thing with the phones although it’s essentially a proven fact that the iPhones break after two years forcing you to get a new one.  But this, THIS, this is very cool.  It’s a simple concept but has pretty massive potential.  This so called “magic” bar is going to transform based on whatever activity is on the screen.  Download progress, touch ID for payments, search bar, etc.

Sorry for an unoriginal take without very much substance.  I thought it was interesting and wanted to bring it to the table with two thumbs worth of approval from me.  Whether or not that means anything to you remains to be seen.  But I’m all for it.  The more touch screen the better.  Now we need to figure out how to get cable TV on our laptops wherever we go.
