  1. I love the Mac Mini. If I weren’t a gamer I probably would have gotten an Intel Mac Mini. However, this M1 Mac Mini isn’t a machine for me. I’m just not the right market for it. I like having Windows compatibility as an option. That also means that future Apple Silicon MacBook Pros are probably not on the table for my future laptop. Hopefully my 2020 13” lasts me a long time.
  2. No. While Apple certainly has the technology to do this, and have probably already tested it many times...that ability is not possible at this time. Even if it was, cracking open the boot loader for iOS is not the most elegant thing in the world.
  3. It seems that there are a few Apps that have had their hardware acceleration completely broken with macOS Big Sur. OpenGL basically does not work anymore.

      Yeah GPU acceleration has gone out the window for me in many apps.

      What made me post this is that I noticed that the Kindle App is very slow. Like VERY slow. Scrolling through what is essentially a hyperlinked PDF should not cause any performance issues, but it does.

      Who needs OpenGL? You have Apple API (mental, metal or what ever they call there proprietary thing)!

  4. I admit. USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 only on Macs is absolutely atrocious. Can't watch a damn movie bc of retarded ass content protection and fucking shit adapters.

      My mom has a 2018 Macbook Pro 15" (yeah, the one with severe overheating issues) and I think that the dongles she carries around actually weigh more than the charger.

      1. Pirating is DRM free. Just saying.

      2. USB-C only sucks. Lenovo also screwed up this thinkpad even without USB-C: mini HDMI (seriosly mini, not fullsize), no RJ45

  5. Apple said it was up to Microsoft to allow something a easy as Bootcamp to run and be a marketable feature. You can’t reasonably market being able to VM Windows to millions of customers as a replacement to Bootcamp, bc it’s not.
  6. It's more like AMD and Apple are doing their own thing. Intel is irrelevant but that doesn't mean Apple and AMD are competing...bc they aren't really.
  7. Cars with 2FA and biometrics coming to a dealer near you! Slap TouchID on a key fob, give the key fob a secure enclave with multiple user profiles and wham, secure car. Downside is that you now need to charge your keys!
  8. There is an app for macOS, its actually built into the operating system but its not real time and it has very limited features. Open Wireless Diagnostics > Window > Scan In that window you will see your nearby networks and recommendations for what you set your wifi channels to for 2.4 and 5Ghz.
  9. https://egpu.io/forums/builds/lenovo-thinkpad-p52-quadro-p3200-8th6ch-gtx-1080-ti-32gbps-tb3-razer-core-v1-win10/
  10. Spent way too much on a couple of units for my Axis and Allies: War at Sea collection.
  11. USPS is overworked and underfunded. But their successful shipment numbers absolutely trounce FedEx and USPS combined even during this period of difficulty for them. USPS is the most reliable shipment service in the country and I see no reason why LTT should not utilize them for LTTstore.com
  12. My latest shipment of War at Sea ships


  13. One good thing I've noticed about macOS Big Sur. I no longer experience any delay with keyboard/trackpad responsiveness when opening my MacBook Pro from sleep. With Catalina sometimes it would be a second before my keyboard would accept input or my trackpad would start moving. Not anymore. Looks like the issues with the T2 (I'm assuming it was the cause) were fixed. 


    I've also gotten used to the UI decisions. I really like the maps app icon, but the iMovie icon is still hideous. Also the App Store is MUCH quicker with installing updates. 



  14. The Big Sur boot chime is amazing

  15. In short, no. There is no "macOS for ARM" and "macOS for x86." There is only macOS which is a universal binary.
