  • Belkin has a Continuity Camera MagSafe Mount for monitors now

    I spend enough of my workday in Teams calls that I often enough have to have my current MagSafe holder plugged in to keep the phone's charge up. I'd vote for a chargeable version of this.

  • Asahi Linux for Apple Silicon has come a long way in a few months

    I’m eagerly watching the project progress.

    I can’t wait till it reaches a stage where it’s ready for full-time driving with my usage needs.

  • Apple reportedly won't launch new M2 Macs until 2023

    Same here, on a 2011 iMac maxed at 16GB RAM but with an HHD. It's no slug and with an SSD I think will run even better. But the issue is it is getting less software support, it is stuck on 10.13 High Sierra, only supports MS Office up to 2019 and even within that it doesn't support newer updates on 2019, I just got a Google Drive notification that my OS will be unsupported soon, and it keeps going on. So basically we are being forced to upgrade to newer machines, and I was hoping for an M2 iMac or Mac mini which would suit my office setup.
    That's exactly why it's time for me to move on. The machine works perfectly fine except that it doesn't get any security updates anymore and it has less and less modern software available to run. It's fast enough for what I do with it, and its age is actually a plus for me -- it's cool to see what such an "old" machine can do. It's a shame really, for financial and environmental reasons.

    Once it's replaced it's going to become a Linux machine.

  • Apple stocks rising fast as other Big Tech firms fall hard

    Wait … Isn’t Apple’s stock value supposed to drop when the company reports a banner quarter?

    Markets really are upside-down at the moment.
