Today's news is rather exciting:

Corona's gonna be fucking dead soon, (https://bbc.com/news/...) Intel's so bad now that even Apple can't stand them (https://pcgamer.com/intel-skylake-w...) and Kim's trying to nuke the US again (https://nypost.com/2020/06/...)

Exciting shit.

    I usually take anything written in pcgamer or nypost with a pound of salt. They're very clickbait prone.

    @SortOfTested PCGamer's claims seem to be backed up by a couple other equally-credible sources and some prior trends, so it seems to be legit. Additionally, ABC News reported on Trump responding to the NK claims on Youtube, so those seem backed up as well. (https://youtu.be/RGlUs2jHsUk)

    Blaming Intel just sounds like an excuse honestly. We all know Apple is known for being purposefully incompatible in order to force its user base to stick with them; This is just another method of taking control to lock-out their products from the market.

    If people write apps for the new OS basis that'll come with the different architecture, it'll help make sure they only write for MACOS.

    Corona won't be dead because of an vaccine.

    I guess the vaccine could be more of a prelude to cold war 2... And thanks to many dumb people more riots...

    Well. At least I don't need to buy cinema tickets. *grabs popcorn*

    Can you do this on a weekly basis?
    Like every Monday or so?

    I mean, it sounds like sour grapes at Intel. Skylakes reliability wasn't any worse that anything else on the market, and MacBooks definitely weren't failing during that time period due to the cpu. They were failing because apple uses barely capable board components for the power system, the screens had quality issues, the coating had issues, the nand was prone to shorting out, the keyboard was shit, the touchbars would fail unrecoverably. And they still do/are/am/be/etc.

    @SortOfTested "skylake's reliability wasn't any worse than anything else on the market" i don't recall being pwned just for using an AMD CPU newer than 2015 but okay.

    (Also the i9-10900k was having some QA issues as they were reported to have higher-than-normal variances in power draw and heat generation and the like. https://pcgamer.com/intel-core-i9-1...)

    @SortOfTested they are well on their way to being jerky.

    At this point I avoid them like covid-19.
