I wasn’t a New Years resolution guy, and I wasn’t alone — Strava’s study on 2019 activities suggests 80% of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by the second week of February.
For a long while, I was of the attitude that it was smarter never to start a New Year’s resolution if I was just going to abandon it by early February.
2021 was different, though. Somewhere along the line, I wanted to prove to myself that I could be the one-in-five people who stick it out with their New Year’s resolutions. I began the year with two resolutions:

Apple could point at the latest MacBook Pro and say they’re listening to everything customers are asking for. The latest MacBook Pro cut off the Touch Bar, brought back widely used ports, and increased thickness for better battery life than ever.
The iPad hasn’t received this treatment though. iPad owners have been asking for multiple user profiles for years, only to be shut out with every passing WWDC.
So what Apple won’t do, I will.
