This post is my victory lap. A couple of weeks ago, I predicted, using some very high level analysis and mathematics you probably didn’t understand, that the Magic Keyboard for the 12.9″ iPad would weigh in at 684 g. Today, Matt Panzarino published a review of the Magic Keyboard in which he said the 12.9″ version weighs… 700 g.
I was just half an ounce off. Less than one-sixth of a newton. About 2%. That’s top-shelf punditry.
You might point out that my methods weren’t serious. You might also note that immediately after making my prediction I suggested that 684 g might be too high. Honestly, that’s beneath you. Let’s not bicker and argue. This is supposed to be a happy occasion.

Well, well, well! My eerie accuracy has been noted at the highest levels.
