  • Apple confirms new MacBook Pro models have only slower UHS-II SD card slots

    I for one am relieved and thrilled that the folks who have been bitching about the SD slot for the past five years still have something to keep themselves occupied with.

    Hobbies are really good for mental health.
    I love how people completely ignore the improvements in the most important parts of the device (CPU, screen) and complain about the least important parts that they will probably never use.

    In America we like to focus 95% of the attention to 5% of the problem.

  • Apple just now feeling global chip shortage, while rivals suffer

    Imagine that! Planning ahead gives you a competitive advantage. If only Apple planned ahead for depending too heavily on one communist country for the majority of their components....
    Yeah. That country is the USA. According to Cook, Apple bought over $50 billion from USA suppliers in 2019. That consisted of parts and materials. In 2020, it rose to over $60 billion.

    while Apple does buy from Chinese suppliers, it isn’t the majority of what goes into their products. And don’t confuse assembly of products to manufacture of products.
    Who said anything about assembly? What % of the iPhone is made in China? What % was made in China before the Trump trade war?
