Look at the picture. The screen WRAPS AROUND the device when closed. The looks like it has two screens: one small on the front, one foldable large inside. I expect we'll see a myriad of different folding/rolling/extending form factors emerge.

Vim is the OG . It has no meaningful interface, and unless you already know how it works or have an available manual, you're pretty much stuck. Works well for a power user, but is not functional for a novice.

I learned programming in Emacs. The second a proper IDE with a rational GUI came online, I jumped ship and never came back. Command line tools are for a very specific type of user. GUI interfaces are more approachable and understandable for the majority.

One of the most important lessons is there are usually GUI tools which perform the same thing without the command line. A great example is Git: Git in the command line is a barrier to entry. There are plenty of GUI tools which make Git understandable and more usable for most.

Just wait. In 2 or 3 years the Fruit Company will "invent" foldable screens.

Yes, that's what I thought. Hiding blocks is the preferred method to avoid unexpected behavior.

Also: designing for this kind or wrap-around display will be challenging without a unifying API. We may end up needing media queries and events or similar for vertical-fold, back/front-screen, on-fold, on-unfold etc.

Foldable phones are the new reality. These first generation devices are pretty much proof of concept for the early adopters only, but once they get the clunkiness down and think beyond just extending the view, things will change rapidly.

I think there's a way of hiding them without disabling them. If not, there should be.

That would be nice. Designing a block now means designing for use in the content area today and theoretical use in other areas at some point in the future which means CSS + layout needs to accommodate unknown scenarios.

Core blocks should not be removed, by themes or plugins. Even if no errors are triggered, old content will behave in unexpected ways.

I know I am opening a can of worms here, but... Hey people using on the regular. If there was one thing you could tell people new to using the command line that you wish someone would have told you, what would that be?

Wonder what hides inside wp.editor? `(wp.editor)` and get the whole enormous list.

To test the height hypothesis, put on these fashionable (seriously, they are back in style) shoes and see if it makes a difference:

If he's taller, it's just a physics thing. Easier for the taller person to hold the hand straight down (in front) and the shorter to put their hand forward like a handshake. Try holding the hand of a child and you see this right away.
