    In this video, I’m reacting to all the recent reports on the next-generation iMacs, including M1X Apple silicon with x-as-in-extra cores, all-new, all-Pro Display XDR design, and, most recently, the return of color. Yeah, talk about your tangerine dreams! 




    But, not really… let me explain…

    First malware running on M1. First Malware design for M1. First M1 Malware has arrived. First M1 malware discovered. M1 faces first malware.




    So, what does this really mean for M1, the Mac, and most importantly — for us?

    iPhone 12, with a lighter, squared off retro future chic design, OLED display, MagSafe charging, and 5G is worth its starting price of $829. Or… if the year-older iPhone 11, all rounded and curved, classic LCD, and… that’s pretty much it, is a better value at $599.




    Let's go through it!

    M1X & M2 Macs — WTF Leak Bombs?!

    We’re only at the very early stages for the Mac. We’re at the ultra-low power tip of the proverbial silicon iceberg. The M1 is the first in a series that’ll include more massively multicore versions of the current 11th generation architecture and even more impressive versions with next-generation, 12th generation and beyond architecture. Chips like M1X and M2, or whatever Apple ends up calling them.




    And unlike Intel, Apple doesn’t provide roadmaps well in advance. They don’t provide them at all. Not beyond extrapolating the power draw on what’s effectively a Bezos graph.




    And that leads to a ton of thirst… and a ton of thirst traps. To… trap it. To take advantage of it. To pull those views, subs, and follows.




    That includes anonymous Twitter accounts that never provide any accurate, original reporting. Like at all. And the various blogs and videos that repeat their fanfic because it not only gives them an excuse to thirst-jack the trap in the first place but to post a follow-up correcting it whenever anyone with an ounce of sense or integrity points out just how wrong it is and how wrong it was from the start. AKA, the double thirst trap take back combo attack.

    Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, literally wants to inflict pain on Apple, on Tim Cook. To make them hurt. To lobby the government against them, to claim anti-trust, to do everything they can to paint Apple dirty. Why? Because with App Tracking Transparency, a new privacy feature coming in iOS 14.5, Apple wants to give us, the customers, the users, the ability to choose whether or not Facebook gets to track us outside their own apps, across other apps, even across the web. Apple considers this simple level of privacy and dignity a fundamental human right. And… Facebook… well, Facebook seems intent on seeing it as an existential threat.

    Most of the time. Almost all the time, iOS 14 will do away, way better job at managing apps and multitasking resources on your iPhone than… any puny human.. could ever even dream of doing. Even using on-device Intelligence — Machine Learning, algorithms — to predict which apps you’ll most want to open and when. And pre-loading them to make sure they’re primed and ready based on that bet.




    When you switch out of an app, it’s supposed to save its current state and go to sleep, to hibernate. Then, when you switch back, it’s supposed to wake up, to resume from that exact same state. Right where you left off.




    But sometimes an app goes bad, a process goes rogue, your iPhone gets hot, your battery drains before your eyes, and rather than taking the time and going through all the effort of tracking down exactly which app is causing the problem — installing diagnostics, running tests, monitoring for days or weeks — they’ll just… force quit everything. And sometimes salt the ground with a hard reset right after.




    Volume up. Volume down. Press and hold the side button until you get logo. The… Konami code of troubleshooting.




    Here's how it all works!
