I’m hoping for a less utilitarian software future, more a cultural artefacts-based opinionated software.
Are Facebook problems rooted in its leadership? Probably. If the government can’t do nothing about it, may be Facebook shareholders can? Markets are rarely capable of common sense.
Those interview tidbits are always fun to read, especially when Apple tech is the focus.
But a more generous reading is that Apple got its bet on the future wrong. It thought it could outsource a laptop’s ports to desk-based accessories like monitors and docks to make its laptops slimmer and more compact.
Good and balanced take on past Apple’s vision of the future of the laptop. Now that all the wrongs are corrected, what’s next beyond those shiny and powerful MacBook Pro.
Apple's product design has improved since former design chief Jony Ive left the company in 2019, according to an opinion column by Bloomberg reporter Alex Webb. Webb believes that Apple has reemphasized function over form since Ive's departure.
It’s hard to draw a line between the before and after Ive departure and its effects on Apple’s design studio. Apple works on the long term, products are designed well before they are released.

Today’s Apple Mac event has been very eventful, with the company announcing a new line-up of MacBook Pro devices, powered by two different new SoCs in Apple’s Silicon line-up: the new M1 Pro and the M1 Max.

They “upgrade” devices by taking away features that a lot of users — and often professional users in particular — love and/or find useful. When questioned about it, the response is the equivalent of the “Deal with It” meme. Faster horses and...
Good article from a long time blogger, Matt Birchler. I love what this guy is doing. While he’s been blogging for 11 years, I’ve been blogging for 12 years, more or less active. I’m loving more than ever, whatever my numbers are.
Another great Twitter thread from Mr. Sinofsky. I was working for an Apple dealer back in 1992 when I first saw the PowerBook 100, 140 and 170. The keyboard configuration with the track ball in the front with palm rest areas were novelty at the time. Looking forward for the Unleashed Apple event to see how the next chapter is going to start.
People quitting their jobs en masse is something indicative of a profound change of the way we want to organize our lives and how we want to go to work. I think this is good news. Commuting might be a thing of the past in a few years from now. Change is always fun. 🍿
