  • Compared: Mac Studio versus Mac Pro

    Speaking of user-upgradeable, the Mac Pro's main draw is the fact that it can be configured with additional PCI Express or MPX Module cards. The Mac Studio, like other M-series Macs, doesn't support this level of modularity.
    And while this is true, I don't believe that it is much of an advantage. I wonder how many people who bought a Mac Pro have plugged anything into them apart from a video card. I would expect very few.
    Most people add to their machines through usb-c and Thunderbolt these days, and that is plenty fast enough for most use cases. Bus modularity is pretty much a thing of the past. Most manufacturers aren't going to invest the time to make peripherals that use a bus over a usb-c or Thunderbolt port. And they especially aren't going to make MPX modules with such a small market.

  • Apple denied Parler re-entry to the App Store despite guideline revision

    Yeah, this is a bad look for Apple. I have no desire to download Parler (other than the obvious "this is forbidden, I must have it" draw) but to say it's due to hate speech when you can find exactly that on several currently approved apps (as has been mentioned above: Twitter, Reddit, Facebook etc) is disingenuous at best.
    As has been said often (not sure who the original author is): "The tech industry needs to learn to distinguish between hate speech and speech they hate." This is clearly the latter.
    Ban FB, Twitter, and Reddit as well and I'll believe it.
    That’s just whataboutism. I agree that those social platforms need to do a better job, but they are making an effort. After all they banned Trump.

  • Lawsuit alleges Apple involved in 'flagrant' music piracy on iTunes

    In most countries of the world, Bye, bye blackbird is out of copyright (50 years after artist who wrote it died). In any case, their beef is with the recording artist, not the publisher.
