  • Docker reveals why its virtual machine isn't yet on Apple Silicon M1

    Eric_WVGG said:
    Even worse — Homebrew's package support is very, very spotty. This makes M1 Macs a deal-breaker for any serious web or backend developer until at least next summer.
    As long as docker works I’ll manage to live without brew till the summer - I’m keeping my Intel Mac until docker is fully supported 

    that being said m1 MacBook Pro out for delivery here in the Netherlands. Edit: I’ve been subscribed to the GitHub thread for homebrew and there’s tons of progress daily. You can expect all major stuff a pro web dev would use to be available very soon
  • OpenCore Computer attempts sale of Hackintosh systems

    These clowns are selling an x570/b450 motherboard in a mediocre case for a base price of $2000.
    I would much rather give you that $2000 for a MacPro-like case. And then just let me choose an AMD cpu, that's all I'm asking.

    $5000 for the MacPro with these inferior Xeons and 580s is sad and is pushing us away.

    For that much throw in a 3900X and a 5700XT. Charge another 1000 for the 3950X, 3000 for the 3970X as far as I care. Please do this for the pros that don't want to go through the hassle of a hackintosh and want AppleCare, want all security updates and want the engineering that goes into your cases. 1.5TB of RAM? Give an Epyc option.

    Do this for the next 5 years until ARM can compete.
  • Apple slapped with patent suit over Siri's natural language abilities

    Would Portal Communications, or anyone else, really know the actual systems/processes that Siri uses to do its natural language analysis? Isn't this hidden on the device and off-site servers? Plus there would be more than one way to do this.
    There is soooo much that is being used to construct a simple response from Siri or any other advanced NLP machine.. I don't think Siri is powerful (yet) so it could be that there is something they're using that someone else is, good luck proving that though. What is most interesting is the updates Siri will get with iOS 12. Based on the investment of resources Apple has allocated in creating the neural net for FaceID, I expect a HUGE movement forward with Siri, a decent update to SiriKit. Look at WaveNet.. Google's deepmind is SO good and it's 2018. So this patent suit, relevant or not, it's talking about ancient tech
  • EU says it may withdraw court case if Ireland recovers full $16B from Apple

    foggyhill said:
    Apple should just move out of Ireland since its Ireland that actually fracked them by promising something they could not deliver.
    Where will they go? Ireland, Cyprus and Malta are the only countries in the EU with the preferable taxations. Ireland is big enough to afford expanding operations.
  • Video review: LG's UltraFine 5K Thunderbolt 3 display, 6 months later

    Inferior display.. 3 USB 3.1 ports in the back are they kidding? No daisy chaining, no other ports in the back?
