    Apple announces macOS 15 Sequoia with window tiling, iPhone mirroring, and more

    Do the devs you employ tell you they hate Apple? Maybe we could do a livestream Q + A session with your devs and my devs to discuss the issue? Because the devs I employ really like their MBPs. Or, do you not employ any devs and get all your info from youtube vids with dudes making ahegao...

    Apple announces macOS 15 Sequoia with window tiling, iPhone mirroring, and more

    Developers hate macs? What are you even talking about? All of my mobile devs use Mac since you can't build for iOS in Unity on Windows but you can build for Android AND iOS on Mac. Watch more youtube vids, eventually you'll find one with the right info. Alternately you could learn the...

    Apple announces macOS 15 Sequoia with window tiling, iPhone mirroring, and more

    I dunno, I have been busy typing this since I saw your post (on my battery-powered, portable triple screen M3 Max, M4 iPad Pro, LG Gram Monitor rig) and my battery life is on pace for 10+ hours running both monitors powered from my Macbook.

    Apple announces macOS 15 Sequoia with window tiling, iPhone mirroring, and more

    Because like Dukenukem, you can't understand that the vast majority of computer users don't play AAA games. Apple's ARM is a wonder solution over x86 when it comes to pretty much everything else. No other laptop in the world can touch their combination of performance, battery life, lack of...

    Apple announces macOS 15 Sequoia with window tiling, iPhone mirroring, and more

    You have it backwards. Having x86 hardware is starting to become a hinderance to everyone else's sales. That's why Qualcomm is about to release their Snapdragon "whatever". It's why Microsoft moved away from x86 for the new surface copilot machines. Graphics intensive gaming is a single...

    iPhone 17 Pro and iPhone 17 Pro Max, which are rumored to feature 12GB RAM

    Haha, I forgot about that actually! I also travel with AirPods Max (hotel movie watching) and AirPods Pro (running/weight lifting) but they don’t have that much compute in them!

    iPhone 17 Pro and iPhone 17 Pro Max, which are rumored to feature 12GB RAM

    I am responding to your post right now from a hotel room desk with my travel Apple setup. Between my M4 iPad Pro, M3 Max MBP, and LG Gram monitor: 24 CPU cores 10TB internal SSD storage 144GB unified RAM Tri-monitor, high-DPI/high-res setup powered via a single power adapter - or with all-day...

    Apple Unveils Apple Intelligence

    Exactly. This has been going on for years. I want to be fair to the people in this thread that I am kind of making fun of - the media has done "AI" a great disservice simply by branding it as artificial intelligence. The term "AI" is such a buzzword right now that it is virtually meaningless...

    Apple Unveils Apple Intelligence

    I get where you're coming from, but I just want you to understand that you are using AI when making a phone call. If you want to say "I am for AI when it improves my call experience but against AI in all other areas" then than that is fully your prerogative to do so.

    Apple Unveils Apple Intelligence

    Hate to break it to you, if you own an iPhone 15 you're benefitting from AI even if you just make calls with it. People truly don't understand how pervasive it is; it is even used in things like adaptive filtering for call quality. It's use in noise cancellation for background rejection on...

    Apple Unveils Apple Intelligence

    It is really interesting to see the shift of technical users towards Apple. I didn't think things would move quickly enough to leave so many users here flailing in the dust, but here we are. This thread is literally full of people actively using "AI" on multiple devices every day vowing that...

    Why does MacOS cost less in support in businesses than Windows

    There is a lot of bullshit in this thread because people haven't run an all-Mac shop and simply don't like Apple. I will caveat this by saying that I have no experience running multi-thousand system deployments; it is possible that Windows is superior for that. Although, IBM and Cisco have...

    New Windows AI feature records everything you’ve done on your PC

    I can't believe you are sticking up for this, but you are also missing how bad it is. Browsers or third party apps are recording individual passwords; this would record your MASTER password for any password manager or SSO. Yes, there is adaptive MFA and the like but it is objectively less secure.

    DP 2.1 has a cable length problem

    I came into this thread to say exactly this only to see you had beaten me to the punch. The situation is frustrating to me though because I know the actual manufacturing cost of the transceivers is relatively low, and the serdes ASICS cost pennies to make even if they retail for $6-7 in QTY to...

    Microsoft stoops to new low with ads in Windows 11, as PC Manager tool suggests your system needs ‘repairing’ if you don’t use Bing

    There are only a few components to a modern macbook that are serviceable; even for keyboard defects they just swap out the whole bottom case (technically it's called the upper case, but it's the lower half of the laptop). Sure, it's not a "new machine" but it's basically a new machine for all...

    Microsoft stoops to new low with ads in Windows 11, as PC Manager tool suggests your system needs ‘repairing’ if you don’t use Bing

    Two things: Apple will usually not repair your machine but give you a brand new one. If they do repair them, they tend to just replace half of the computer (display or mainboard/battery) which effectively gives you new hardware. Second, even if they did repair the old ones, I believe the...

    Microsoft stoops to new low with ads in Windows 11, as PC Manager tool suggests your system needs ‘repairing’ if you don’t use Bing

    My company designs embedded linux hardware (hence the need for Windows for fucking Altium). If there is ever a company that is pro linux, it's the people designing the hardware to support it. Even with that being the case, it's totally infeasible to staff a company with normal users running...

    Lol, how many Linux distros do most people see period....(zero). Anyway, just ordered five more Macs in my quest to purge my organization of Microsoft. Sadly the finance people will go to their grave with Windows and the engineers need it for some stuff, but at least I have all sales...

    ASUS Launches 16-Inch ZenScreen OLED MQ16AHE with 360-Degree Stand

    The resolution on these portable panels is a fucking joke. The LG Gram I have has shit contrast compared to an OLED but at least it has a usable resolution. Along with my iPad Pro, that's literally two portable monitors I have that crush this in resolution.

    Apple's 'Let Loose' iPad Air and iPad Pro event: M4?

    I am looking forward to even my ipad being more powerful than Dukenukem's desktop. That aside, I am really looking forward to these tablets. I bought a maxed out gen1 iPad Pro in maybe 2018 or 2019 and it has served me extremely well and still runs fast today. My main problem with it is the...

    Samsung Odyssey OLED G95SC 49" DQHD (5120 x 1440) 240Hz UltraWide Curved Screen Gaming Monitor

    I have multiple of both (I purchase ultrawides for all of my engineers at work) and I actually pretty strongly prefer the normal G9 Neo in several ways. For me, the best monitor of all is the 57in Samsung, but the old G9 Neo is very good for productivity. I will caveat this will the fact that...

    Not really. Apple doesn't make products that are comparable to the shitty parts bin laptops, at any price point. You can look at just the memory spec and try to compare 8GB vs 8GB, but there is more to a computer than that. At $1400, you get an Air with the following specs: 8 core CPU...
