  • Apple acquires self-driving car startup Drive.ai [u]

    The number of people who keep claiming Apple isn’t working on a self-driving car are starting to dwindle. You guys still around..?

  • High-end users on 'Why I'm buying the new Mac Pro'

    Let’s be honest for a second, the new Mac Pro and XDR Display is not a good value if someone isn’t working at a Marvel Studio.


    ten years ago to the month I bought my current Mac Pro. This summer I am hoping to upgrade it to the 2012 chips and get a few more years out of it. After which time I will be getting a (maybe used/refurbed) nnMP. It breaks down to $400yr plus the couple hundred I've put into upgrades so far, and the couple hundred I plan on putting into it this year. Not a terrible deal.

    The nnMP is an order of magnitude more powerful than the '09/'12 machine and upgadable to the point it's very likely the last desktop I'll ever have to buy. For only 2K more? Why wouldn't I?

  • Ten US states file suit to block proposed Sprint & T-Mobile merger

    I think it should be "attorneys general", not attorney generals.
    You are correct, although I never understood that grammar portion of the English language.
    In this case, "general" is an adjective modifying "attorney", it just is weird because it comes *after* the noun (because of its French origins.)

    English is pretty much a dumpster fire of a language in any case.

    PS. FWIW my investor buddy’s take - “As for the merger, they would control something like 80% of prepaid customers in the US. Clearly too much market power in my view.”

    Does the dashboard view always show Apple Maps?

    doubt it, but speaking of maps - surprised we haven't seen a writeup on the new features in Maps yet. Unless I missed it, but I looked back through all the posts & didn't see one. Maybe in the next couple days..
