  • TSMC aims to reduce reliance on iPhone processors for Apple

    crowley said:
    Business aims to have more business. Good business news.
    Yeah, that's my take, they aren't looking to reduce their share of Apple's business, they are looking to continue to grow other business.  Right now their 7nm production is so swamped that its causing massive backlogs(PS5, Xbox, Ryzen and Radeon, as well as older Apple chips).  They continue to lead in developing new process nodes, so they will continue to get more business unless Samsung(more likely) or Intel(less likely) can catch their Fab's up.

  • Apple could begin producing its own car with a 'next level' battery in 2024

    People forget that gasoline is a battery - a chemical battery. Gasoline can even be constructed at home using water and carbon dioxide. 
    Yes, instead of putting electricity directly in the car, lets use electricity to create "gasoline" with whatever % energy loss there is, which I would assume is fairly significant like the production of Hydrogen is.   Then we put that in your car, which then loses another 12-30% of that energy through energy loss(heat/friction).  Best case scenario, your losing bare minimum 15%(realistically closer to 30%) of the energy in creating the fuel, then another 12-30% when burning the fuel, not including the transportation cost of the fuel unless you propose that it is created at every gas station.  Then you have the equipment cost that goes along with that.  Or we can just take the electricity(really easy transport, infrastructure already in place, minimal energy loss), put it directly in a car, and only have the energy loss in that vehicle, which is already more efficient that a combustion engine.
    So there's no heat/friction in an electric car? And currently we already have transportation of fuel to gas stations, so that's not an issue at all. In fact, some people will create the gasoline locally on their property, so it's an improvement on the whole situation.

    And you argue that electrical power distribution is "already in place" and you suggest that gasoline distribution is not already in place. How many errors can a single person write in a single post?

    Why do you oppose improvements to the current system? What's wrong with improving the status quo? You must be an AOC supporter, who wants to throw away all gas powered cars and airplanes.
    Wow, going with politics when common sense fails...

     Electric cars use energy more efficiently than internal combustion, its not even arguably.  To your second “point” of course we have infrastructure for transporting gasoline, it’s loading it into trucks and trains that’s also consume gasoline or diesel in order to transport the fuel.  By that idea, we should all just use generators at our homes instead of relying on electric lines, since that is efficient?  Their is also the energy used to refine the fuel in the first place.

    Your not seeking improvement, you want to maintain the status quo because change is scary to you.  But history shows you either embrace change or get left behind.  There is nothing political about wanting cleaner more efficient transportation.
    That's not the reason I support gasoline. I told you that when gasoline is made from water and CO2, it is 100% clean. You didn't dispute that, so you know I'm right. The reason I support gasoline when it's made from water and CO2 is because it is clean, and because we already have the automobiles that use it. Since you haven't said how you expect to make people  like me start using electric cars, I presume you want to take away my freedom to choose gas cars. I have to assume that because you are refusing to explain your position. My position is the status quo, so there's no more I need to say. Your position is unclear. You don't say how you intend to force your views on purchasers.

    By the way, I never argued that electric isn't more efficient than gas, so stop harping on that. That has nothing to do with my point.

    Once again, I presume you want some method to outlaw gas powered cars. Please deny that. I believe in freedom to choose what kind of cars we want. And it seems that you oppose freedom. 
    The whole point is that it isn't efficient.  Your being intentionally obtuse.  You have to input lots of energy to convert various sources into a "clean fuel".  That clean fuel then loses efficiency due to general inefficiency of the combustion engine.  I addressed all of this, you just ignored it.   I am not saying gasoline cars should be outlawed, I am saying that your "clean gas" is not only inefficient, it will be expensive.  It costs $90 per tank(manufactured fuel through hydrolysis) to fill up a hydrogen car, to only get 400 miles.  I believe it costs between $6-$12 to get the same mileage out of a Tesla, and the electricity is readily available.  Your not helping your cause by repeating freedom, you just sound like your triggered and need a safe space.  We don't need to "Outlaw" the gasoline car, you can be a "cool diesel bro" if you want, I am saying market forces are accelerating towards electric cars.

    People forget that gasoline is a battery - a chemical battery. Gasoline can even be constructed at home using water and carbon dioxide. The reason we drill it up from the ground is because it's free down there and doesn't require electricity to create it by modifying the chemical bonds of H2O and CO2. Water isn't a pollutant. Some people say CO2 is a pollutant, but actually it won't count as a pollutant in this case if the CO2 is already pulled out o the atmosphere in the first place to create your fuel. That makes this fuel carbon-neutral. This technique isn't theory, it's fact. One company, Carbon Engineering, is already making gasoline this way and the price is only $4/gallon, which is pretty close to the world price of oil already.

    Please Apple, no. Making cars is absurdly complex and very difficult to be profitable. Finding a location, building a plant to make the cars, crushing workers rights to make it profitable. Tesla lucked out getting an old Toyota plant for basically free.  I just hope they have developed a platform that then a large OEM like Ford might pick up to use.
    They can just design the car and develop the technology, then use a company like Magna Steyr to do the production/assembly.  It would not be any different from their relationship with Foxconn, TMSC or any other third party manufacturer.
