You can finally get a MacBook with a totally redesigned keyboard -- but it's going to cost you at least $2,399 (£2,399, AU$3,799). The longstanding rumors about Apple's newest jumbo laptop were nearly all true. The newest 16-inch MacBook Pro, unveiled Wednesday, finally ditches the flat "butterfly" keyboard that has vexed Apple laptops for the better part of half a decade, replacing it with a back-to-the-future design modeled on the more traditional keyboards used by iMacs for the past several years. "As we started to investigate specifically what pro users most wanted, a lot of times they would say, 'I want something like this Magic Keyboard, I love that keyboard,'" Apple's Phil Schiller said in a conversation with CNET.The new model fits a 16-inch screen into a body that's barely bigger than the previous 15.4-inch models. Apple is also throwing in a bevy of spec bumps -- better graphics, bigger battery, more storage, better microphones and speakers -- and charging no more … [Read more...] about The MacBook Pro 16-inch laptop is here, and we love its ‘Magic Keyboard’

Baidu Inc reported better-than-expected third-quarter profit and revenue as more people signed up with the company's video streaming platform iQIYI , sending the Chinese search engine company's shares up 5% after market. Baidu has been trying to cut its dependence on its core search business, which accounts for three-quarters of the company's revenue. The company has had limited success so far with its cloud services and artificial intelligence businesses, but its listed subsidiary iQIYI, a Netflix-like video service, is popular with young people. Third-quarter revenue from iQIYI, which competes with Alibaba-backed Youku and Tencent Holdings' Tencent Video, rose nearly 7% from a year earlier to 7.4 billion yuan ($1.06 billion), as the service crossed 105.8 million subscribers in September.

“If we’ve had a pause in upgrades and updates, we’re sorry for that — what happened with the Mac Pro — and we’re going to come out with something great to replace it.” Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller is talking to a small group of reporters in a white stucco building near its headquarters in Cupertino. The purpose of the discussion, while somewhat unclear initially, reveals itself a few minutes in. The news, if you want it straight: Apple is acknowledging that the Mac Pro they introduced in 2013 has run aground on the cleverness of its own design, and they’re re-thinking the entire machine. In addition, they’ll be releasing a new external display — something it had previously opted out of. But none of that is coming this year. Today, we’ll see a performance bump on the old design of Mac Pro, which will remain on sale for now. And later this year we’ll see improved iMacs that Apple … [Read more...] about Apple pushes the reset button on the Mac Pro

But even with that long list of upgrades, the thing I'm most interested in is the keyboard -- and I bet you are, too.
