  • Intel announces technology team restructuring amid 7nm woes

    I’m quite torn here. I generally do not have a problem for consumer grade custom CPUs. However one obvious risk with moving off the x86_64 architecture is that necessary developer tools such as hypervizors and products such as Docker and Java will not be readily available. Apple gained a lot of enterprise developers once they moved to Intel. 
    Now their work laptop will probably be some Linux variant. This means less awareness and higher threshold to write iOS apps. I could be wrong, but I think Apple would have better long term chances. It will take years, only time will tell

  • Apple's AirPower charging mat may not be cancelled after all

    still do not see how it is practical to lay down the iPhone. Sure the AirPod case and the watch. But for the desk I want my phone to be standing so that FaceId works.
    i guess this could be to nice for the bedside but it seems a little bit steep with $200 plus for a bedside thing?
