Yesterday the Oscar gala was held, probably the most important film gala in the world, both for its relevance and for its audiences of millions of people. The next day all the media show the most relevant of the gala and those phrases that have gone unnoticed, and among them we have the words that Taika Waititi has left us about Apple.
Waititi has been awarded the Oscar for the best script adapted by Jojo Rabbit and when asked what writers should demand from producers to leave a phrase to remember: "Apple needs to fix those keyboards".
Waititi is not a fan of MacBook keyboards
Apple has been an unexpected protagonist at the end of the Oscar gala, although Tim Cook may not feel very well after hearing these words. Years ago Apple introduced the new butterfly keyboard on its MacBook, a keyboard with which it is tried to revolutionize and that has ended up being an authentic headache.
These keyboards are louder, have a shorter travel and, worst of all, often spoil since they are more sensitive to the small particles that can enter between the keys. And this is something that Thor's director didn't like at all: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi.

"Apple needs to fix those keyboards. It is impossible to write about them, they have worsened. I want to go back to PCs. Due to PC keyboards, the recovery of your fingers is much better. Hands up who still uses a PC? You don't know what I'm talking about. It is a much better keyboard. Those Apple keyboards are horrendous".
What Waititi may not know is that Apple is already at it, the newest 16-inch MacBook Pro has changed its keyboard and most likely, the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air will also be renewed throughout this year, leaving the butterfly keyboard behind.
