So according to Apple, if you move the mouse pointer into the notch, rather than butt up against it, it goes ”behind” the notch. Trying to imagine how that will feel in everyday use. I guess it makes the most sense, as if you’re up at the top of the screen you are probably going for menu items most of the time and you will be moving horizontally along the bar?

That does it! I’m cancelling my non-existing order! This would never have happened if Steve Jobs had been revived!

On a more serious note, that’s probably the least interruptive way to handle the notch in day-to-day use. Some of the other options I mentioned elsewhere could have looked great, but would‘ve been really inconvenient to use.

Oh yeah, now in thinking about the UX, this makes more sense. I don't want my pointer movement to be stopped or the path changed, I want to continue in the same direction, like moving from a Menu Bar app/service over to the application menu bar items.

Yep, since when you are at that part of the screen you are likely moving the mouse pointer in a mainly-horizontal direction.

I guess we’ll have to see how it feels in actual use.

I’ve been pretty amused at your comments about me over at the other place. Nice to see you!
I'm getting so fed up with them suspending most of the great people I follow. :( I don't understand the logic of it.

I may not be smart enough to understand everything being said, but I sure enjoy reading those threads you've created.
