    Apple M2 enters mass production

    What China does is NOT compete on a level playing field, but you already knew that, didn't you? Are we just supposed to turn a blind eye to how they operate?

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    No I would not. Maybe 10%. ETA: that's within the 3 year warranty period. Latitudes are to the higher side and slimline Precisions (5000 series) to the lower. Breakdown with the Lenovos are the same-Carbons and Yogas higher and WS (P1, P15) are lower.

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    5 is a pretty piss poor statistical pool to base a claim on, don't you agree? I'll take my 249 machines over 5 every day of the week (except apparently Saturday and Sunday since we're basing things on "5")

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    He's claiming 80%. In a company that currently has 249 Macs on the roster, it obviously should be more than one, don't you think?

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    Because I have not seen the numbers that you claim, not even close to, I'm calling BS. There may have been an issue and very well could be still an issue. However, what you are claiming is striaght up bullshit. Unless my company somoehow manages to cherry pick our machines to only get the "good"...

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    I've seen precisely one MacBook/Pro with a bad battery. And I have opportunity to see plenty. If it was anything approaching 80%, I would have seen around 180 in the last few years. Try again?

    Apple knew it was selling defective MacBook displays, judge concludes

    I can't even count how many Latitudes, Precisions, Yogas, and Carbons I have had to replace batteries on. For both swelling (rendering the keyboard and trackpad glitchy at best) all the way to losing communication with the battery and no longer charging. Next?

    As expected, the "impossible" EmDrive doesn't work.

    Yes and no. Rapid prototyping is a thing and can lead to some huge leaps. Compare SpaceX Starship to NASA SLS...

    What to do with 2TB 970 NVMe. Replace OS Drive? Add New Drive?

    Also depends on what the second M.2 slot is. Might be PCIe X2 or X4 V 2, which would cripple anything that's put in it.

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    In the Fortnight market, Epic has 100% monopoly-so what? By your definition, Epic should be allowing other companies to market a Battle Royale game named Fortnight and running on the Unreal engine. And while we're on that road, other people should be able to create and sell stupid hats to sell...

    Epic Games Sues Apple

    Okay-Apple's house and Epic agreed to the house rules when they requested a key. Once they walked in, they took a steaming crap on the living room floor, then bitched when Apple tossed their ass.

    Key part in red. You don't sign a contract agreeing to the terms of that contract then get to break the contract without repercussions. Epic can DIAF as far as I'm concerened. Bust a deal, face the wheel.
