  • Nine-core M4 iPad Pro benchmarks leak, still smokes M2

    The remaining are the Mac mini, Mac Studio and Mac Pro. It will be interesting if the monolithic M4 Ultra SoC is true. Mac Studios and Mac Pros with an M4 Ultra will be great machines, especially if they fixed GPU scaling.

    I am hoping that at WWDC Apple blows up the world again and makes a new “D1” chip for the Studio that flips the cores to run more production cores and less efficiency cores.  I would love to have a slightly less efficient desktop with the extra production cores would bring.  

    This would allow Apple over the years to be able to bump up the clock speed with the “D” version of the M-series to allow for a more robust desktop experience, that professionals ask for.

  • American Express doesn't seem that interested in an Apple Card partnership

    Good, because I see no value in having an American Express card.  They're not accepted most places any more, probably because their merchant fees are exorbitant.
    That's a load of BS...I put 99% of all my spending in the US on my primary AMEX card and have maybe been turned down by 1 or two merchants out of hundreds and hundreds and it's usually some chain that has a very exclusive VISA or MC partnership. AMEX is accepted virtually everywhere. You may not personally want to use one, but it's simply factually incorrect that they're "not accepted at most places anymore"
    Well you must be a very luck and special person because almost all the retailers I had worked at or shop at don’t accept them.  Glad you have your story and it works for you, but not so much for most of the people.
