When it is important to offer up citations or evidence of fact

Recently during a tweet I upset someone that I actually have much respect for Jason Calicanis because I was not as clear with my statement about citation being needed and he took offense.  This is to clear up why and when it is important to use cite references to substantiate you claim. At the time of the tweet Jason Calicanis thought that I was derogatory against his tweet with suggested that the ‘start up suggestion’ was as good as the suggestor had thought.  In fact it was the quoted tweet which claimed it was and that he was wrong and … Continue reading When it is important to offer up citations or evidence of fact

I’ve written about this before, a long time ago, it is only now that tech news is slowly coming to this realization like lumbering idiots that they are. macOS is becoming legacy software – The Verge While they are still fluttering thinking that it is the end of he Mac lineup they don’t grasp that the reason that the development departments hAve been  medged is the same reason that that TMSC is focusing on 5nm chip fabrication for Apple devices.

Was Eric Schmidt while at Apple a spy for Google?

Background In 2006 Eric Schmidt was elected to the board of Apple, now as a board member he very likely didn’t have direct access to the prototype iPhone but is it possible that he had enough access to be a mole for Google who he was directly linked to at the same time as their Chairman.

Just a day or two ago Apple released an update that removes the indicator showing how much time remained before the battery expires on the MacBook Pro.  Why did they do it and why was it an error to include it in the first place. This really as the biggest design error that Apple have made with the MacBook Pro, you see the information it supplies can only ever be an estimate at best and it guaranteed to fluctuate. We can compare the time left indicator as being the same to ‘Miles to Empty’ indicator on a vehicles dashboard status … Continue reading Why the Time Remaining Indicator on the MacBook Pro was a huge design mistake by Apple
