QT:{{”
Demic diffusion, as opposed to trans-cultural diffusion, is a demographic term referring to a migratory model, developed by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, of population diffusion into and across an area that had been previously uninhabited by that group, possibly, but not necessarily, displacing, replacing, or intermixing with a pre-existing population (such as has been suggested for the spread of agriculture across Neolithic Europe and several other Landnahme events). “}}

Sign the Petition

Share similar sentiments to this petition: Haven’t found the new MacBook Pros satisfying, esp. the keyboard
https://www.change.org/p/apple-apple-recall-macbook-pro-w-defective-keyboard-replace-with-different-working-keyboard Not sure $AAPL cares anymore about making computers – vs phones! Any recommendations for what I should replace my #MacBook with?

QT:{{”
““The failure rate of the keyboard in the first year on the 2016 MacBook Pro is a ticking time bomb for users.”

I’m writing this petition on a Late 2016 13″ MBP keyboard with a defective L key and a defective Shift Key. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t.

If you, Apple, want to continue to pretend this isn’t a problem, your head is buried deep in the silicon. “Design is how it works.” These don’t. Everyone who bought this computer bought a Lemon, or at the least, a potential Lemon when one speck of dust gets under the keys. There should be a Lemon Law for laptops.”
