    Yeah. I would never buy an Apple Silicon Mac mostly because of that (also because Apple Silicon has no support for standard GPUs). I was just at CostCo today and was looking at some laptops. There are very affordable options with Intel Xe Graphics and decent displays. 
     
    I simply cannot buy a laptop or a desktop which abandons the rest of the industry.

    perhaps Boot Camp will comeback to AS Macs when Windows 10 on ARM gains traction from developers

    DrMacintosh reacted to like_ooh_ahh in Someone made a response to the “Your computer isn’t yours” allegations going around:   
    This forum's PCMR echo chamber tendencies is obvious when Apple is mentioned in a not so good manner, everyone becomes batshit crazy even without verifying their source. As someone who used a Mac before, Apple took security seriously after the Mac Defender malware brouhaha by introducing Gatekeeper and by extending ASLR to the kernel on top of the built in antivirus XProtect. This reminds me when someone made a thread about a security researcher who claimed he bypassed iOS 11.3 USB restricted mode, only to find out he faked it.

    Yep. It's specifically an anti-malware service in this case. Used to verify developer certs.

    DrMacintosh got a reaction from soldier_ph in It would appear that macOS Big Sur broke my legally acquired copy of Final Cut. Apple   
    Yeah, that's true. I guess I'll stick with iMovie. Really I only need like 3 tracks of video at most. iMovie can technically do that but its not really elegant. I mostly just use DaVinci Resolve if I'm at home though.

    Yeah, the iMove icon is the worst offender. It's just the old Logo but straight and on a white background 🤢 
     
    The other icons I'm mostly ok with except for the dumb gradients on the messages app and FaceTime.

    I'd also say that the new icons for Big Sur are fugly by making them look like iOS icons. I prefer the icons of Catalina but imo, the icons of OS X Yosemite is the best looking.

    Yeah, keyboard issues along with slow performance always seem to be SMC related. On a side note: don't try to update to Big Sur right now. It won't work.

    Interesting. I'll start looking for a replacement then. Yeah, it was BestBuy special cheap for sure. But until recently it was a perfectly fine speaker setup. Having a sub is very nice, especially when playing World of Warships.

    I used to have a Logitech system like that one.  Best Buy special kinda junk.  It did the same thing yours's is and then stopped working altogether. I replaced it with a Razer Leviathan.
    It still works after about 3 years of use.

    Yeah, I was thinking about this recently. Why are mammals so careless with water? It's so easy to not have water available that you would think humanity would have had issues getting off its feet.

    DrMacintosh reacted to Donut417 in It really sucks to stay seeding a torrent only to watch people drop off the peer list   
    Well a vast amount of people dont have the upstream to be seeding for long. Comcast only gives us 10 Mbps. You clog up your upstream then you take down your whole internet connection. Not to mention the data caps that many ISP's have at least in the US. This is why I dont use bit torrent. Not to mention Comcast was known to throttle bit torrent traffic.

    I’m a bit disappointed that they didn’t bothered putting a Touch ID sensor in the power button, just like in the iPad Air which is useful in today’s mask season.
