waveparticle said:JWSC said:Assuming this is true, the recent Shanghai lockdowns have provided Apple with a politically acceptable excuse (from a CCP perspective) for Apple to move a large percentage of its supply chain outside China. Apple can point to 'supply chain instability' as a business reason, rather than the more concerning aspect of being reliant on business entities within a totalitarian regime that thinks little of human rights. Apple doesn't want to talk about that with China for fear that it would put them in bad standing with CCP officials. But the supply chain excuse can be viewed as non-political.

These self-congratulatory things Apple does occasionally should be a bit embarrassing. The Mac Studio looks like a big Mac Mini and it’s the very computer people have requested for years. Apple folks were not psychic when they determined the need and didn’t come up with a revolutionary new design. Good on you for making the Studio Display speakers good. Why is the camera garbage?
I seem to recall Ive or somebody gushing over the shape of the Apple Pencil or something like that. It’s some kind of joke.
