Of course many people buy macs for reasons other than gaming, but the gaming market is a still a relatively big market.Also, Apple could have chosen to use tiger lake and nvidia gpus, but famously opted not to do so, of course, and intel is just highlighting that.Finally, tiger lake launched with 4 cores, so it couldn’t keep up with m1 and mobile Ryzen 5000 in multithreaded heavy benchmarks, but tiger lake h with up to 8 cores is out, and it smokes m1 in multithreaded tasks and has taken the gaming crown from AMD, according to a recent Linus Tech Tips review of the 11800H.
CheeseFreeze said:Apple's vision of putting user privacy-first is just marketing.
They just 'turn off' their mantra in Belarus, China, Colombia, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkmenistan, Uganda and the Philippines (and counting)....
And this has nothing in common with CSAM discussione where multi DB are used so no one is in control of them, indeed CSAM would be available (not anymore) on USA only where there are entities who protect children. Apple always did what is possible to do, even when their choices are easily manipulated by detractors. But in this case Apple can’t do nothing. And it is pretty sad.
you should angry with our politicians who have more power to change Russia government.
And misinformation worked great! Google scan photos with human interaction, Apple created a complex system based on mathematical hashes with multi DB from different organisations, all to guarantee privacy... and users now have fear to use Apple and will instead use Google services with much less privacy and actual photo scan.

But for some reason I’m totally in favour of this! Genuine Apple parts and presumably cheaper than taking it to an Apple Store.

Using iPhone 13 mini since few days, never been exited this much by any smartphone, it is just INCREDIBLE in everything.

C|net finally saw the light and turned off their comment function. No more constant belittling of users of other platforms, especially Apple and its users. Many news sites have also shut off the comment section. AppleInsider should consider doing the same. The arguments, opinions, expert-wannabes pontificating drive away readers. Readership would likely increase if comments were turned off. They serve no function.
And I'm not nearly as negative as you say. I've been very positive about the new MacBook Pros, am excited for the arrival of my M1 Max 14" in November, and have said so. And I think I may well buy an iPhone 12 mini and/or an iPad mini soon too, though am hesitating over whether I have the use for it to match the desire. My general position is Apple hardware good, Apple software good-ish, but on a worryingly wobbly trend.
