  1. Summary Quotes My thoughts Seems like the growing number of lawsuits and anticompetitive investigations as pressured Apple into making this move. Overall a win for small developers, would be interesting to see if Google matches this. Sources https://www.macrumors.com/2020/11/18/apple-drops-app-store-fees/
  2. https://www.macrumors.com/2020/11/17/apple-silicon-mac-reviews-videos/ This post has a lot of the youtube reviewers and their reviews listed.
  3. Definitely, more reviews the better. However other reviews are starting to come out, and it's looking like this thing basically outperforms the top 16in Intel MBP on optimized apps and almost matches it in translated apps.
  4. Definitely don't switch to the Intel mac now. If you can wait till they release a 16inch Apple Silicon next year, you definitely should. Unless you don't require that extra sustained power for your workload. There's also rumored to be a design change next year with mini-led displays and a new 14inch and 16in MBP.
  5. Geekbench isn't a good benchmark. However other benchmarks are also showing great performance for the M1 Chip.
  6. It looks like Linus' early impression and skepticism to the announcement video wasn't echoed by other reviewers because they had the M1 already in hand being tested. Dave Lee sorta hinted at that in the WAN show last week too. This rift between LMG and Apple just puts LMG a bit behind on reviews for Apple products.

  10. I updated the post to include the direct explanation from Apple, along with their PDF from their website
  11. EDIT: So some people aren't sure why the article/author mention the T2. So here's the pdf straight from Apple explaining the other T2 chip features, and their quote on the "HARDWARE microphone disconnect" Apple T2 Chip Overview PDF Source Not a bad idea?
  12. Seems like Apple either isn't enforcing their internal document of "bricking" the MacBook if repaired by 3rd party or the internal document was an error. https://www.macrumors.com/2018/10/06/ifixit-repairs-2018-mbp-without-apple-diagnostics/ The Original Document leaked stated: iFixit:
  13. Source: https://www.macrumors.com/2018/08/22/android-sends-data-google-10-times-ios-to-apple/ Personally I think it's fine for Google to collect as much information as they want, as long as it's clearly visible to the user exactly what is being collected and there is an option to turn off things the user doesn't want collected. However, this study along with others seem to repeatedly show that Google isn't giving the users full control over their privacy and continuing to collect data even on things the user turns off, which is bad.
  14. I thought in certain tests they were, but I'm not sure. You might be right. Apple definitely just didn't want to redesign the thermal solution since they know the number of people who will spend money for the i9 is going to be small, but that's very disappointing.
