  • New Apple 'Mac Studio' may fit in between Mac mini and Mac Pro

    This could be exciting.  Whatever it is, hope it has plenty of usb-a and usb-c ports.  Also give us an SD card slot and I’m happy.  An analog headphone jack would be a bonus too.
  • Apple hides job titles of ex-employees, reclassifies them all as 'associates'

    Well,  I think being called an associate is 100 times better than being called a “resource”.  It makes me cringe when I hear management at companies refer to people as “resources”. It sounds demeaning,  as if a “resource” is like a light bulb that can be switched out or more brought in for example.    I would never refer to an employee as a resource.  It sounds so impersonal and disengaged from anything that resembles a team
  • Sports Illustrated swimsuit model says she was tracked for hours with AirTag

    It’s getting ridiculous now with these news stories.   Car thieves and now this.    Technology for technology sake is not necessarily a good thing.  It reminds me of the fascination some have with self driving robot cars, just because it is possible does not mean it should be done or is a good thing.   Perhaps a time is coming soon where these tracking products need to be shut down and banned,  regardless of brand.
  • Apple hourly workers feel helpless under punishing pressure & mistreatment

    I think the layout of the stores can make it a challenging time to concentrate sometimes on what you are doing.  It just seems like everybody is standing around bunched together and looking at what everybody else is doing and constant interruptions.   The layout seems tight in the aisles for example at many stores I’ve been too.  
  • The new MacBook Pro: Why did Apple backtrack on everything?

    Just saw one of these come into my office the other day for setup.   Yes,  it’s great to have the SD card back.  Most people into photography\videography like myself are happy to have it back.   The hdmi is handy too.   I prefer the wedge shape and lighter weight of the Air, which is my laptop of choice.  But,  good to see the pro model gets these ports.  I do have to complain about the notch.  May be to early to be sure,  but my reaction to looking at it the first time is that it’s an abomination.  Who cares about a tiny bit of extra screen space it gives?   Yes, tricks can be used to hide it, like dark mode.  But why should users have to hide something that should not even be there?  The notch is one thing that I doubt will be copied by the windows laptops.  So,  the rumor is Apple is going to ruin the Air laptops with this too?  May be time to get the current Air while I still can.
