EE is cool because I thought this graph was a rendering error at first, but no it's real 😅

Also, no one seems to be talking about this, but I think it's interesting they transitioned all the non-GPU-using Macs in one fell swoop. Waiting for the next SoC rev ("M1X" or maybe "P1") to put in the more powerful machines to establish a new tick-tock year-over-year pattern, perhaps.

Apple's new M1 SoC looks sweet but I'll be super interested to see how they differentiate performance in the MBA vs the MBP. I assume they're just running it at a higher clock thanks to the higher TDP, but I wonder how much higher.

Love it when a professor tries to empathize with student stress by providing a "mental health day" with no class, but then assigning a paper about what we did on our "mental health day" to be due the following class.

Man, it seems like if you really want the best phone camera, you have to get the Big Ass iPhone

Most of what people call “software development” is just reimplementing ideas that other people had a decade ago.

I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation for why my mouse driver wants to record my computer's screen.

yoooo if you're a professor and you answer a student query with "we went over this in class" please dive into a pit of snakes, thanks

Upsetting to think about how 10 years ago, I would have been terrified of a Guy Fieri presidency, and yet today I would kill for a Guy Fieri presidency.

I will never learn which kardashian is which. I refuse. It’s my god-given right.

a weirdly dystopian thing: the portland shamrock run is cancelled, but they still offered to send out shirts, so i'm gonna have a shirt for an event that never took place

Remembering happier times, like when John Cena bought 55 suits

This from the company that claims to have quantum supremacy.

I also watched Ad Astra. It was toooooo looooonggggg. Not recommended.

Finished The Sixth Extinction. It was super interesting, depressing, but also at peace with itself and our collective assured doom. Recommended.
