Mickey Mouse So, but one thing now, what is this about the removal of the touch bar now? I mean, we've had a lot of mixed things about, you know. My son loves the programmable touchbar, depending on what applications you use. Is that going to be a car? Saul platforms? Well, from what I hear, with the possibility of announcements of the new MacBook pros Using the M one or possibly an M two.

Apple's 40-Core Desktop Is Coming
"Apple's pro desktop could have up to forty course This rumor was broken by mark. Gurman about apple's impending arm plans and there's actually a handful of rumors. Let's get through all of them. So i up. Is that new macbook pros a fourteen inch and sixteen inch are shockingly coming featuring apple silicon. I don't think anybody saw this new. Macs with apple silicon. No no they were going to have the segmented line forever apple silicon and intel living in perfect harmony No no not happening. They have this like doing their own thing in house ever. They're going to have four thunderbolt ports. Hd my and an st card slot meant having hdmi back. How freaking awesome. Is that going to be for all the people that don't have hdmi on their laptop already. Like what an upgrade. I actually ran a dell. Xps thirteen to one as a daily driver for almost a year. I think and that was the thing that drove me most crazy. I thought it was going to be usb like a usb type and from time to time that was pretty obnoxious because my ubt is the taipei and i do like to use a mouse. If i'm actually sitting in doing something for a while at the computer. I don't really prefer wireless mice bluetooth. I find noticeably noticeably. Leg man i just love to see an industry standard for something like logitech slate. Speed properly tried light speed kills really well. Yeah but i mean you need a dongle. They're all taipei. So basically you're stuck with a dog goal no matter what if you want to plug a decent mouse into your laptop. But that wasn't the one that drove me crazy. The one that drove me most crazy most often was not having hdmi. Because you never know if you're going to be somewhere doing something

What to Expect From Apple’s “Spring Loaded” Event on April 20
"Apple is holding its event next week. What are we expecting. I think at this point with apple. You're probably looking at the next versions of the match. You're transitioning to you that emlyn remember back in the winter. We had the look air. The thirteen inch pro in the mac mini. Mike gut tells me in with an m one but other option is also that sixteen inch macbook pro. I figured you'd eat away on those and of course people have always been talking about this. Spring event is being the next ipad pro. Which could get 'em one chip or something similar to. Its as they continue that sort of weird mind meld between the tablets side and the computer stuff. That's an interesting suggestion. Do you think that they start. Converging the further or you think they'll keep them separate though still. Have some sort of aid chip processor for the ipad pro. I think the chips are going to become increasingly similar. Even if they use different letters for the the a whatever in the ipad pro and the whatever in the max they they may have different nomenclature essentially doing the same thing as the absolute negativity for those platforms become more and more similar sheila sophoclean however i feels like apple's business models still relied on keeping these two separate to the point where they had the ad with the kid using an ipad and such what computer they happened to kit. Goes what the computer. And that's more fanciful thinking on their part than reality. People take their ipads computers. Likely people think of their phones at as computers. Now i spend a good deal of of several days a week probably working exclusively from a phone getting the same stuff done. I would normally do city at a computer. We're not there yet. But i think the ipad pro comes very close to that if you have the right kind of keyboard in touch fan combo and frankly the latest. The latest macbooks feel very much like the ipad version of that because they are becoming much more. I think mobile century in terms of their native

Laptop or Chromebook, which should you get?
"Laptop versus chromebook. What's the difference in which works better for you so we might be wondering windows. Mac laptop chromebook. I don't What's the difference while a breakdown difference here. I do know the difference between both. I have owned both a laptop and a chromebook and my wife owns a mac laptops. So i have some familiarity enough. But casey don't believe me we can always just look at the articles here so laptop chromebook. What's the difference in which works better for you. This article comes to from seen. It chromebooks our laptops in. Two one's running google's chrome operating system the hardware might look like any other laptop the minimalistic web browser based chrome. Os is a different experience from the windows and mac os laptop. You're likely used to or desktop whether you're considering switching from one to another or macbook or your kid received one from your school or you're simply curious about chrome. Here's everything you need to know on chromebook. I arrived in twenty eleven routinely derided and rightfully so for their limited functionality. In reliance on a consistent internet connection but there is a reason for that bap rating system turns ten years old. This year in today's chromebooks are far from started. But some things haven't changed might not be willing to work with the limitations that they do have also. You don't feel like reading this in would just rather experience chrome os. You can temporarily run on any of app. Top using an inexpensive usb flash drive you probably already have laying around you could just test it out for yourself. See how it works now. Here's the software situation on chrome os launched. It was essentially google chrome web browser but those used to operating system. Like windows and mac made the average chromebook seemed like little more than a laptop. That runs the web browser. That's about it. Let's basically the idea. Even if the chrome os never matured at fact is quite a lot can be done entirely on the web. These days take stock of everything you do on a daily basis. And you may find. There's nothing you can't accomplish with chrome at its most basic level

Apple's future: A look at iPad, MacBook M1
"Sure that the ipad was on its way to replace the mac as those two platforms collided. Then keep the one macbook. So let's talk about the future apple those pesky rumors of a b. headset. This is your daily charge who begged pontificate about where all this is going. Then scott stein editor at large and apple expert so your commentary today looking at the potential merger of the ipad and mac book. But as you as you write today the perspective that you've had for awhile now shifted a lot because the m one you talk about that. Yes i've been. I've been trying out a loner. Unit of an apple. Mac book because i was curious and i heard great things about it and i thought okay and max work and i been mainly focused on looking at ipads and i've been writing about the ipad. Mac like dream merger for years like probably a decade and it did change my perspective in a way that i thought it might Apples chips on these are are trying to make max run a lot more smoothly instantly. Which is the territory. That i think i. I really put on ipads and on phones which was like. Oh this deferens really fast. It seems like get things done. Launched things quicker. Why can't you do that is easily on a on slogging laptop. Those problems having been solved on the on the air. And so well. I think also removes a lot of that uniqueness from the ipad and so it makes me wonder what is the ipad for and if and also if the mac can do this now really well with 'em one chip why can't the ipad to. Yes so it's interesting because you feels like it's a bit of a divergent for divergent idea from what you'd previously thought it was like. Do you still see these two platforms merging because it seems. Apple is intent on keeping them. Separate i think they have to merge and. I think apple's claims in this about keeping them separate or are posturing. Because i think that you know for years now we have been seeing them get closer and we've seen things introduced. That apple didn't seem what they were going introduced like a stylus or keyboard and track pad support You know things that are are transforming usb into Something that is more. Mac like were traditionally computer like but every year we get to this point of. When are we going to cross to becoming too doing even more in in the irs. Ripe pat os is more siloed off. It has advantages but it also holds back on flexibility. And i think in in a time of of lockdown where. I have not gone out. I need my home equipment. The mac book is extremely versatile. And i think that that versatility needs to flow more into the i. I think that answers my next question. I should ask anyways at this point. Like what do you find more useful and ipad pro the top line at that pro or one of these macbooks with an one processor. I think the mac book for what i do because you know what am i doing. I'm i'm i'm zooming a lot. I am testing out things. That may have extra weird browser hook whether it's a virtual sundance festival or stuff like that things that you know a lot of times were or zoom theater piece for what i cover. They will say we don't recommend an ipad for this. We don't recommend it you know. We prefer use laptop. So it's better safety zone for me for what i'm covering that being said i think i still feel like the ipads presentation for videos for for games as fantastic but no longer say that. It's the place for the best battery life or the best instant feel. I can just as easily. If you're shopping for an m one mac book you get that same thing you know and and that rock solid reliability is really impressed me so what really frustrates me is that people have to make a choice and i think apple made a really hard for people to decide and they launched these at different staggered windows. You where the ipad does not emerge at the same time and then then once it comes out. It's being seen as the computer of the future. So you know which one is. So i think they have to merge. Yeah you talked about some of the advantages of the ipad. Go into the am one like one that book on run apps really quickly you know. Obviously one of the key traits of an ipad over. Mac is still at touchscreens Touchscreen ever makes it over to the mac really right the macbooks. Apple's maximum the last domain. Were there's no touchscreen like everything else that i can think of is introduced it a long time ago. Were made a choice for some reason to maybe not super focused by touchscreen and stylus support shore or have it flip around be modular. You know. that stuff's been out there for so long. It's obvious. I think apple does seem focused on also people using multiple devices so there's always been a proposition of get both which is not realistic. I think if you get to a high enough price. The the ipad is cost as much as a mac book air. So why can't it be. Why can't those high end models be fully.
Apple Mac bringing back the SD card
"Starting to look like this. Next mac book pro is gonna be the mac book. Where sorry is gonna be the mac book. We were wrong because we already talked about the fact that there maybe probably moving away from the touch bar. We already know the fact. They went to an older style keyboard design. Yesterday we talked about or maybe two days ago that they were going to go back to having a mag safe connector. Today's report we're gonna put an st card in there s the card reader so this was a long experiment for them. You know what it was. Well let me tell you what happened. They let everybody go and buy the minimalist design figured out how much they missed having features so that now in this one comes out and gives them all the features back they rush out like crazy real quick to pick those up. So it's our fault right. Yeah i blame you really do. Yeah i card reader. How nice would it be. Just having st carburetor. Maybe they do some even crazier and put an hdmi port and now just fantastic. Let's not get good type stuff. We're asking for here analyst. Ming cheek will outline his expectations for the new fourteen inch and sixteen inch macbook pro models. Coming later this year with the mag makes a charging connector the removal of the touch bar a new flat edge design and a return of more ports built into notebook for expanded connectivity. I mean i'm so sick. Docs and i'm so sick of dogle today on the macbook air. I watched mo- have to pull out the docking station and everything else. He was tangled up in wire. He had wires because he needed to as the and he wanted to connect an ethernet. And i don't think we're going to eastern at jack on here but still so the next s the card Part of it comes from bloomberg's mark gurman the upcoming macbook pros and example of apple's renewed focus on mac loyalists. The company is planning to bring back in sd card slot for the next macbook pro so users can insert memory cards from digital cameras. Yeah that's what you do with an s. d. card slot. The feature was removed all the way back in two thousand sixteen hundred twenty one. Now this is kind of unlike apple but who knows you never know what they're gonna do remember when they went for the trash can mac pro for example and then they completely backed off the next time around They there were some issues. People wished that they had more ability to upgrade that device switch out. Gp's and things that they wanted a traditional design and so apple went right back to the tower the regular style tower. So i think it's the right move. I don't think. I think if you had you had a plan and things didn't really pan out then that's fine. You know you admit it and you move on this trash can was kinda cute but it just wasn't ready for prime time. We have the rumor that the next model could be a little cube but that they're probably going to keep the full-sized towers as an option. But this is about the macbook pros and the two thousand fifteen macbook pro. Not only did it have an st card reader. It also had in hdmi port. And you're be ports. Which i know. This is the kind of stuff that you're most. Pleasant drinks are filled with. Well the sweet sweet for all kinds of sports. The we'll see what happens but this is a nice little touch here. I know
Some M1 Mac users reporting screensaver takeover bug
"News of an annoying m one bug called the mac says apple silicon macs are prone to what it calls a dreaded screensaver bug apparently affected machine spontaneously display a screen saver that you can't easily dismiss if it happens on a macbook air macbook pro the piece as you can close and then reopen your machine which should get you back to your desktop. Actually that does sound like an easy way to dismiss it kind of a pain. Perhaps the better news. The cult says you can avoid this issue entirely the way to do that is to disable fast user switching. Also a pain. If you've come to rely on the feature. But which one's worse call to mac disabling the feature should prevent spontaneous screensavers that you cannot close. It's unclear from the peace whether the issue no word on when a permanent fix might be in

The M1 Honeymoon Continues
"We should start by. Just maybe doing a check in now that we've been using these m. one max for a while. Yeah so Like i shared. I bought my wife a macbook air. She is absolutely loving it. Silent battery ruins all day cheeses using microsoft teams video conferencing all day. She teaches in the public schools but teaches from home. And that's been that's been really going. Well and i was so impressed with it ended up with the thirteen inch macbook pro and selling my sixteen inch and the smaller screen size has taken some getting used to but if you're on the fence about the macbook pro versus the air. I'll say a couple of things one like the only time i've heard the fan is when i was trans. Coding to streams of four k video and each stream was about twenty minutes long and after a few minutes. I heard it but thou his debbie expected and the battery. Life's really good I think it's a little bit better than the air apple. Says it is and sort of like anecdotally around my house. It seems like the pros and be a little bit better than the air. But i think performance wise. Unless you're doing this big long sustained things like we said the map areas so so good. I don't think there's a really compelling reason to move up to the mac pro unless you just want the touch bar which a lot of people do or you want Kind of a better sense of longer sustained operations without being a slow down. But i think hands down the best mac to buy right now. Is that in one medicare.
"macbooks" Discussed on Pocketnow Weekly Podcast
"Just just make a speaking offer use code rivera thirteen for. Do you know what. I wanna do right now. I wanna go. Buy a mac mini. And i wanna leave that mac mini here in the studio and not carry a laptop anymore and just like think about it. I like the mac. Mini is the perfect. Pc right now. Is it going to have the same like pitfalls as your macbook pro like you said like it's connected to a monitor it's connected to like because it's the same spec right. Yeah it's the same spec but it's got a different heat sink. I don't know i. I'd like to try it out. I don't think it's going to have a problem because it's got more ports which is literally. I don't know that's a good question that is literally the same spec across the. I just know that the hiccups that i'm telling you right now. I was getting on the sixteen inch macbook pro. So don't think that i was using the sixty pro and it was better. No no no excellent. It would expert the video in two minutes less. Probably that would be it like yes. It was like you hit that export button on that six inch. And then you hear the fans go on and it's like houston. We've got a problem because fricking space travel with those things but it would export in crazy time so no. I'm like listen if you have like. If you want to continue using your intellect species or your reisen just keep going to it. I will start i will. I'm seriously debating. If i need an ipad right now because my ipad and the reason why would carry it with keyboard was because of my battery and anxiety because if i had to go to a trade show in it needs to take notes. I needed to preserve every ounce of battery of my laptop for editing. And so i would write my scripts. I would do everything right now. Josh i. I don't remember like i use. My ipad is a highlighter. And that's it don't seem this. Is it anymore. I i think. I will admit that's the other thing it's just general. Experiences are very significantly. Different on this mac book pro. I've i've been. I've been bringing this thing with me anywhere in the house. Sit on the couch watch. Tv while writing my script. All of those things like weei easier to do that than with most of the other laptops that i've used but in your to to to say. Do i even need to have an ipad anymore. May i present exhibit a sidecar. Might be nice for you but like the reasons why use an ipad. Before are no longer the reasons i like for me again. It was my notepad mino taking machine my like right now i. I don't use it like i i can. I don't have to worry about the battery of my laptop but probably the coolest part is that if i ever did i actually have battery packs that can fully charge it twice same zender i know i know shout out to both e and so i'm like i don't need i seriously like they don't sell the sixteen inch pro. Don't sell this excedence. i'm like i i. It's been in a bag for the past two for the past week. I have not touched it. And i don't like do. I miss the larger display. Yes i do do. I miss the better speakers. Oh yeah the speakers on that fifty on that sixteen inch pro are amazing. Do i miss the battery anxiety. No yeah hundred percent not one bit. I don't i have been dreaming about do josh. You remember this year. Remember me buying the thirteen inch macbook pro at cs that time we stated that horrible apartment that airbnb the smelly one. Oh the smelly one. Jim at a gym dude you remember. I came to see us with the thirteen inch. Macbook pro and i was like i'm fully committed. I can't stand the fifteen inch pro anymore. I want to try this thing and see if i can get my job done i. We went to pick it up at at the at the mall. I literally use it for cs. And i burned it i through. I don't know what graphic promotion via effects literally. The computer just stopped working like at all. I remember how bad it was. And then i came like crazy to apple to try to get replacing the help me out. And they gave me back. The fifty inch with the point. Being is i've tried. I've been dreaming about this for years. Yeah yup you've been you've been you've been waiting for that you know it's like it's like a night portable beast. I wanted this for years. And it's so funny. That i already got a taste of it because of the g fourteen and now we have. I would say these are the two that if you're looking for something nimble but the thing is i'm just waiting and slight tangent but i'm just waiting for us to create a productivity version of the g fourteen it doesn't have to be gaming laptop. Just make productivity type of with similar specs. that doesn't look like hey. I'm a gamer and like you would have a winner on your hands. It's the it's the competitor to this right now. Anyway is trying to do it with their like productivity lineup. True but it doesn't have the spec needed for our work and we are specific users. Raise a razor. Has the razor book thirteen. Yeah thank you thank you. You just made my point of the entire podcast right now. You just said yes but they don't have the spec that we need. This is the beauty of the m one. Forget about the frigging specs. Think about storage and probably ram. I would worry about storage. That would be it and then because these are arm chips. The apps are smaller. So i have to tell you right now about the smack. Let me see displays storage. I have one hundred seventy one gigabyte still available out of my two hundred and fifty six and you know why because of that amount. that's available. Look at this laptop as like a to project laptop and then offload them for me. It's it's yeah. That wouldn't be enough. Like i need more storage. I need a good terabyte. At least at least because final cut renders like it pre renders everything in pro resin so a project to be two hundred gigs. Like easy easy of you're doing like four k if you're doing cinema four k with graphics and everything you could. You could chew up to one hundred in two hundred gigs in no time. So you just you just you just made my point for me then because he has been trying to get me to get on final cut and i'm like now you just said why i shouldn't do it because unresolved it can actually read all of it without having to do proxy pre rendering so it may not be completely smooth. But that's my fault. Because i do ten bid for two to footage and i ex you need. You need to move away from that but it helps me with color grading because i do like grade. My video footage and then export in h. Two six five which is still not. It's not an optimize file format like very compact. But we just are not at the point where we can like smoothly. Do it only nvidia cards. But the eighty series cards can do that. So yeah that's this is getting into technical talk. This is the way that we are. But yeah i'm i'm super impressed and i can't and you know that i'm impressed with with product. I'm going to stick with it when i start customizing it and then because it's an apple product there's so much customization to be. Had i mean looking at frigging and kba debrecen schemes. Right now. listen man. I still can't believe it like if you ask a person that's been using macs since two thousand and eight. I still can't believe it. Like i still can't believe that. I that the dream finally came true now. I can't wait for what's next because the moment they give me this computer with four usb seaports. I will be the happiest guy on the planet. All right cool. Well we'll look forward to that Who knows whatever may come next and one exum to whatever at least that's what we keep saying it's too But yeah so that'll be. That'll do it for this episode..

"Back in the day. It had an intel zeon processor like it was a beast in every single way and it was comparible in export times and everything with the mac book profile cut. It was amazing but it was a forty two hundred dollar computer. Yeah there's only this is a slight tangent but there is one thing that we all never ever used as far as dedicate versus integrated intel quick sync. We never really took advantage of it. They never really developed it. But it was a way of getting fast exports depending on the program you were using. Because it wasn't it was using the integrated iris graphics. So it's something that we never used because we don't really think of outright but this is the reason why i'm like listen if you can find me. A one thousand dollar computer. That's ex- port anything in premier and that's what i told cogan. Listen do me a favor. Just give me a one thousand dollar computer that can treat premier better than that one. And he's like there isn't any now you get it so think of this paradigm as if you had a choice on a racetrack between a two point. Four liter lotus and a five liter ford mustang. You knew that the lotus is faster on a smaller engine just because of its optimizations and its design or the five liter mustang. That you know is not as fast just because it's got a five liter engine. What would you pick you one of win the race or not. So what's the principle the principle is. You wanna win the race and so one has a smaller engine. Yes but it's fully optimized so everything has been catered to the task so let me ask you. What is better engineering. The five liter engine or the two point four liter engine that's able to achieve the same principle the more efficient one for sure Exactly yeah and so. This is the reason why tesla's are so popular. It's like they're able to drive at the speed of a porsche with a little biddy motor. That's in the back of the trunk. It's a it's a complete retooling of the way you think of vehicle and this is a. This is funny because like i said before it goes to show just how far we've come in tack. These are the things that we're able to to work with. I remember being very jealous of people back in the day in college who grew up in the age of final cut whereas i wasn't early adopter on i. Movie making crab videos so they. I didn't have to go to the struggle i had. It was just part of their generation that these things were available. Now we are what years and years into this youtube career and we had to work on those laptops. We had to work on old cameras. Now there are sleeker cameras that you could give someone a zeevi wanted they could start a new career and like it's the world that we're in now and the fact that this fourteen i'm gonna keep saying for two hundred dollars because the taxes do matter fourteen hundred dollar base model macbook pro thirteen. It's it's the per for me at least it's the perfect fallback computer when i know i need to go somewhere and it needs to be lighten bolt. I can rely on it when i have to return the pc's that i'm reviewing. I can fall back on it and It it will still give me a good time if you have to travel tomorrow to. Mdc what computer would you bring. It's either this or the g fourteen. i'd be happy with either. I'd be happy with other but definitely none of the bigger pc laptops that. I have reviewed recently. Now here's the thing. A few people probably few people in my password right. But what about that gaming though. You've always been all about the gaming and one. Here's where here's where. I had to justify it for myself. This is this is coming from a very privileged place. Okay i'm going to. I'm going to admit that okay. I can afford in principle to have a laptop. That's literally just made for work in everyday computing that does not have gaming capabilities. Because i have both of the new consoles. Hey so my game is so mccain life to sell me. One of them shut up. My gaming life is is appeased. Like i'm not wanting for gaming because because i'm okay with it but i will say that yesterday i came to a revelation now on the one hand. I've always advocated for if you have if you have a product be it a phone or a laptop that is not able to run the latest and greatest games like. Let's say you won't be able to play cyberpunk in a few weeks. Well the thing is you gotta look a gaming as a spectrum like there are actually a lot of classic titles in the apple arcade and it'd be kind of nice to revisit knights of the old republic again some of these older games. you know. maybe that's how you can shift your thought on the laptop. Here's the other thing g force and now works on mac so game streaming might be the salvation for these books. That have never focused on gaming. I'm going to fire up the witcher three later. And see how it looks on this macbook pro just to see what it's like so there are going to be ways that you can sort of appease certain aspects of that life but honestly it. The fact that davinci resolve is natively supported on this. That was the big kicker. That was the trump card honestly for me. Let's not use that that last name any card. Oh i'm sorry oh okay. Let's listen to everybody. that's listening. I will say this. Don't buy them not yet. Unless you're like fully invested in the apple ecosystem but do buy them like try them. Just go try If you can find anything for this price. That's able to do this much. I'd be shocked also listeners. I have a sixteen inch macbook pro sixty four gig core i nine. It's on sale..

"Like seriously is like what year is this like. There are a couple of things that i don't like but the one that i hate the most is two usb seaports. That alone is like shoot me. Just shoot me house. is that pro. Like that was the first question. I had okay and so for me. The thirteen inch pro should not exist like they should not have launched a computer and they had it. I know and i know that it's been. It's literally the affordable vary. You could still by the thirteen inch pro with with four ports. And i think it has to do with the chip. I think that the chip just can't support more ports because if you look at the back many. It's the same story at least from usb c and if you get other ports on it but the point being is like if you like oh my god. It's so irritating. Because obviously i don't have enough storage on this thing for a video edit so i have to use a permanent solid state drive but then i have to connect to monitor to when i'm here in the office and yet no porch and so if i need to import footage into the camera i have to. Disconnect the monitor can is a question in that regard are do you use a full on thunderball three docks. I yeah but here's the problem like like well not a thunderbird three though not one of those i have one right here and like thunderball is it is. It is good. It does help in these regards to have multiple things that once the the problem and and i already reached out. Wc to see if they send me one but because the problem is not all usb c docs are created equal if it's thunderbolt. I'm not worried if it's not for example if you grab any of those like like i've noticed that only anchor has one where there's an hdmi connector. That's four k at sixty. Every single one of the cheap ones is four. K at thirty and a lot of people don't know and then they look they look at the screen and they think it's choppy and it's not the screen it's the dongle so you really have to know what you buy. They don't all provide the same amount of power delivery. There are just so many elements. But you know back to the topic. This is not the perfect machine like the macbook air obviously doesn't have cooling the mac pro for the first time. I heard the fan yesterday Two days ago. When i was doing import of video but you really have to tax this thing for you to hear the fan like really tax it but then in in every other way like okay. I hate the usb ports. I hated the is not modern but in every other way. Do it's just the concept of being able to work a regular pd molefi battery. Pack if i ever need power and for that battery pack to be powerful enough to actually charge the computer not just retain the charge. I'm talking about charge it because the the chip only requires ten watts voltage. It's like what the likely it's like. people were like. Yeah ipads shirt. Run mac os. I'm like well this is it. This is literally an ipad running mcelwain. That's what it is it just doesn't have a touchscreen yeah with with california tax this base model pro thirteen was around fourteen hundred dollars. And if i had to think about the pc's that i know. Because i i'm still kind of diving into the world of computing as far as content is concerned. There's only one laptop that i can think of that. I would go for if i wanted the nimble nece. That'd be offered like traveling one. And it's the g fourteen right now. I just saw on slick deals not too long ago. I think it's on. I think it's at best buy. It's on sale for twelve hundred. Which would make it the same price as this. That is also a non intel laptop his. Amd laptop but here's the thing but because requires discrete graphics. If anything close to what we do exactly it's it is great for it but because it uses discrete graphics at the twenty sixty max q. It's still requires plugged in for full power. And even if you were to try an edit on that thing without it plugged in it would only lasts at the most. Maybe two three hours. So what are the main reasons why told cogan the wheaton it had there has to be a paradigm shift this because of the how this architecture is designed. It's not just the five nanometers. It's the fact that the ram and the gpu are all in the chip. So i did. We did an example with the eagle are grabbed. The i grabbed the gpu. And i tried to do an export from my e. gpu on final cut on my sixty inch macbook pro. It took ten minutes tax. Puerto video. If i do it without the gpu it takes six minutes and so the that doesn't make any sense. And i know it doesn't make any sense why you know what it's called. It's called cable. it's called lou. The farther away the components are the more you information needs to cross between portion so if the gpu is the is not integrated directly. Sorry if the gpo is not integrated directly in the chip it might have more power but that distance the bus between them. That alone could provide certain levels of latency. And so what. What makes this chip. Special is that everything is integrated people. Continue being like you lose repairability. I'm like i don't care. If i'm able to export what i needed to pay four thousand dollars before in a one thousand dollar you could take your repairability and throw it out the trash. I don't care all by four computers for that same amount of money. What's the point of being able to have all these things accessible. What's the point. If i don't need to pay so much money to get that same amount of power. I'm like just give me one windows computer. That's able to export my fourteen minute video. I've tried everything you can think of. When it comes to when it comes to premier just give me one one one thousand dollar computer that's able to do with this one can do. You can't what i had before the only comparable thing that i had an export times the final cut was adel precision pro which was four thousand dollars..

"I forget what a graphics card i threw into it. The computer was forty seven hundred dollars. Forty seven hundred dollars with apple care Because i get apple care for everything. And so i was. I was like okay. This has been you know for the channel. It's been a good year. So i'm like i need. I need a beast. I need a really good machine. And i i had been dealing with the hefty an inch macbook pro. And then i m ones are coming. But then i was like you know what apple never gets. First generation products right they. They said that rosetta was amazing. What the first transition from powerpc to intel and it was terrible and so i did not have my hopes i was like okay. This is going to be step one. I'm sure they're not even going to change the design of the computers. I'm sure it's literally just going to be a change in internals and this is just going to start low. I was expecting to get the first that new mac book the one with the one. usb port. i thought that that's all we were going to get. And i was like in and if they launched that i'll definitely have to buy it for review and i know that it's going to be cool. And that's going to be great. But then they do their event and then you know they do all their stupid graphs and everything. And i was like hell that like. I'm like i need to sit down with these guys. So bear in mind in in one of the jobs that i had if i had to give a presentation to the ceo would graphs like that. He would send me home. Like no i from a lot of our other. Pr contexts that were like green assault from from apple. You know like don't let's not just assume that what they're saying is i was like you guys would be flunked with those graphs. Couldn't just make a simple business. One on one graph like steve. Steve jobs even made one for the launch of the first life. Phone wasn't really that difficult. All right fine. The event happened than i was like. Okay we get the same air. I'm like i've always wanted to buy an air anyway. So i'll just buy it and i'll try the pro and the was going to be here and we'll just figure it out and then you know. I grabbed my one. And i gave it to the. I wasn't really expecting much. I was still with my sixteen inch. Macbook pro in one bag. And i i was like okay. Fine and i got the base bottles eight gigs of like i could've gotten spec modifications and i didn't and then the english like well you know let's just try it and he's like. Yeah well i'm going to start doing the daily on it. And i'm like yeah. Well i did the daily in the in the macbook air in two thousand twelve. So you'll most likely be able to edit. You'll have enough graphics integrated you'll just whenever you export. It's gonna take thirty minutes. That's just that's the beauty of final and then the heads the export. He's like dude. No drop frames. I'm like what do you mean like no drop frames and i'm like no that can't be. He's like nothing he's like dude. This thing plays like butter and he started scrolling everything throwing all the graphics doing the crew mckee effects and then we would see dude we would see the background render icon like if i grabbed my sixteen inch macbook pro. It goes slow like one little dot at a time whereas you grabbed the back you you see the chunks just disappear and some year and i'm like hell what the so and then the oh hits the expert button we grab. The clock starts exporting knew. How much was the first export six minutes so just to give you a little preamble. The first time that i ever did a pocket now. Daily on on a mac book pro from two thousand eight. The export time was an hour and a half. Jeez export time for a five minute. Video was an hour and a half back. Then then i invested in i macc and i dropped the one hour and a half to third two. It was like seventeen twenty minutes huge change because you had integrated graphics and so mindset. Was i knew that if my computer was not a quad core oh sorry. Export time was three minutes. Sorry three minutes. Yeah whoa wait for it. Wait for it so let me just give you a little a little. Preamble of my life with max the first one on final cut seven an hour and a half then final cut pro comes over protection and i bought the i mac and i was able to export in seventeen minutes but then i needed to go to w. c. for the first time and obviously i wasn't gonna bring amax so i bought a macbook air and then the export times became twenty five to thirty minutes for a three minute video. And i was like well. You know that's that's not battle. Put up with that because of all the intensity and everything you would see drop frames and everything but you would live with it and then i was like oh my god retina macbook pro when it came out in two thousand twelve three thousand dollar computer. I was able to reduce my expert. Time from twenty five minutes or seventeen minutes to four back then it was like whoa three thousand dollar.

"Drunk today before. And then the next morning we wake up and she shows me a video and the video is of. My car flipped on the highway. Thanks to my nephew. And i look at her. And she's like. I'm just gonna go back to sleep. I even the most beautiful city in the world. And i can't fix this right now so you know what i'm just gonna go to sleep and i'm like right in rome. I'm not gonna fly back to fix this. I'm just gonna make the best out of my damn trip figure it out. Will we get back. And i and. I think that that's my approach. The there are certain things. You can fix an i will handle them immediately and there are certain things i can't and i will just learn to accept them and move on. It is what it is that makes sense all right well. Hopefully everyone got a little something out of that. I'm sure a lot of the listeners are just happy to hear your voice on the show right now By yeah so we're going to go into a short break and then we're going to get into the crux of this episode. Which is of course. The brand new macbooks. Something that i am grateful for. I have to calm. This is not a complaint. This is just a quirk okay and searching everybody to the dark side right now. This what i was about to say. It's not a complaint. That i'm actually on a mac now but what's so funny isn't had so many. I did a tiktok. My first ever tiktok was me basically revealing that i was like oh snap. I did it like i a mac book now and i got a bone to comments from people from college from high school from from dr tech world. Now they're just like. Is that a mac in your hands. What is going on right now. Luke if you knew the power of the dark side join join me and we will defeat the ever so i remember when apple silicon was just an idea was just a impending development that we had an entire show where you were extolling the the the i wanna say the benefits that that it could bring to computing and it was justice impassioned discussion from from mostly your end because i add very little to say about at the time. About why apple's optimizations and then making their own chips could completely change everything and understood exactly where you're coming from but it was completely different thing to actually experience it so let me just where we ask. Let me ask you. How's it been so the best way. I can put it and actually you know what. Here's one here's one way. I can describe this only apple products. Make me do this. Because of the way that they're designed because of in the case of the mac book thirteen. It's a small laptop. I'm actually in the market now. Four new bags accessories of changing the levy. Get up. let me get up a okay. I am living my dream right now. I am media reached out to matt i. That was that was on the line to the ten leader sling. Dude i was like mad. Buddy i by the way peak design. Yes ten leader sling. I was like matt. i have a need. Now here's the thing you are able to fit the error in there right. It's the air that you got the thirteen inch pro. I have both and the pro. Yes but wouldn't quite fit in the ten and thirteen. I can dude. This ten leader is so good that both the the thirteen inch pro and my ipad air fit along with my g. H five my lens and everything that it's good that you told me that because i was looking at the messenger not the sling. No get the sling the ten-liter how dude fits everything okay. That sounds good. So yeah that's the thing. Like that's where i am now. Is i picked up a Eh picked up. A couple of new accessories actually went for a different mouse. Like this is something that i'll go for it. I'll talk about more a little bit later. Why i picked that mouse. Mx master three mill. Is that three. No that's not yet is it. I didn't see the lip. So you're three for mac so i went for something different. There i went for the g six four mainly because and this is a cork. This is very much a cork of the macbook life by dongle just so i have it if i need it. But i went for the g six of ford because it's bluetooth enabled so since i'm able to bluetooth connected to the macbook it up a port. So that's the reason why i went for that instead. I also got another mouse. Hold on so the ad like. It's really interesting every time. Which was that jesus. Five g five. Oh two five or to scrape. it's just not bluetooth. I needed to free. It is the that one's it is both bluetooth and you get you get both options. He then okay. Well the six zero four as well. the five hundred is a great mouse. I just i think the six zero four was like fifty dollars off for some reason. It was like this always good price. I'll give you my logitech contact fair. So yeah the these are the things that send me everything. But yeah this is. This is the court. I'm running through right now. You know i. I even got a laptop stand. Because i'm the kind of person that connects my laptop to a big monitor and stuff like that. Oh my god do. The math is invisible. Stan this perfect. I did the one where you can like. Slot it in that way. You're not even using the actual laptop is just like a nice looking thing on the side of the. It's the way i have it right now. So yeah the the these are the things that apple products make me do that. I'm actually looking for a way of life changing. It's like it's like kind of changing a wardrobe when something happens and That's what i've been into right now. And that's in the fact that i'm actually going through. That process really shows that. I'm i'm kind of a believer now and i'll preface this by saying i've worked with like i said during the thanksgiving segment have worked with a lot of pc's this year Desktops and laptops alike. And i have been shown what power is and just how just how well it can help me in my work. People like yourself in cogan would say that. I've been cutting myself off at the knees by trying to go for like enthusiasts by budget laptops. I'm always looking for a good deal. I'm trying to optimize something. That is not super powerful. Because i want to save some money cogan particular has always been the guy that's like. Just drop the two or three grand. Just do it because it. That's how important our work is that. It has to be that efficient so finally. I got laptops from certain people. Like i've been i've been very lucky to get to know people from msi and they've sent me stuff with twenty eighties twenty seventies and now rendered times like five minutes and they can scrub four k footage and it's crazy like my mind is blown the fact that this tiny thirteen inch lack laptop can do and i'm not gonna say it's as good but the fact that it is like eighty to eighty five percent there is no and so it's on a beta is you're using beta okay. So i'm gonna let me start with my fan boy piece. Because i just go for two months ago i landed. I got here on. September thirtieth and there was a package waiting for me and it was a sixteen inch. Macbook pro fully maxed out sixty four gigs of ram two terabytes of storage..

"Life people called me. Dr drey in high school just because i was always carrying the sox hat and but regardless. It's funny because i was. I have a lot of admiration from w. a. And for dr dre but i was honestly more east coast and it had everything to do with the movement in the east coast particularly naughty by nature just lyrics back then and i was telling you you know what the thing about. It is like you can play connie right now. And there's a lot of good songs from kearney but a lot of his music shallow and i did not grow up with shallow music. I grew up with like full lyrics. That were matched with amazing music. And so. I'm like you can make beautiful amazing compositions with great lyrics. You catch another. It's kind of hard to find conscious rap. Didn't today because they didn't grow up in the nineties. They didn't put up when whenever you heard cube lyrics on. Nwa these were things. These guys are actually living there. Whenever you heard gnaws singing and lauren hill these like. I remember new york in the nineties man. I didn't want to be here. Like new york was not what it is right now and so for me. It's like it's it's very different because these guys could talk about all their money and all their whatever it is that they smoke. And i don't like that. I don't that doesn't really add any value to my life whereas if you play ghetto bastard which is also card Which is also called. Everything's gonna be alright from naughty by nature. Do that song changed my life. That song made me think about that beginning when the doctor named dr blair walks into the room asked for the father of the son was just born and the nurses like nurse. Johnson is like. There's i'm afraid there is. No father. Serves what she says and then the doctor responds another ghetto. Bastard i'm afraid. So i heard those words and i made a pledge that i would never have any of my children. Go through that And for me to actually meet vin rock personally last year on him and to tell him that to tell him. Thank you for changing my life. See that's the rap. I grew up with indeed. I'm actually gonna make small confession. Ray now because yes i grew up. I grew up listening to hip hop as well. And you mentioned the whole west coast east coast thing. Actually in the era like i grew up my formative years. Were around the to park biggie beef right and oh i have to admit that i listened to way more biggie than to puck. Beat the la guy. Listen to way more. Puff daddy and i did. I adore pock like adore park. But i'm not gonna lie that even if his album all eyez on me is one of my favorites of all time I like the puck from before. Keep your head up like that part for me was was. That's how i grew up with him. That's the guy that i remember then. Obviously he became a little more mainstream with all eyes on me but like lyrically that was to buck for me like when he made a poetic justice with jackson and was it justice. Yeah i think that was the movie. I think it was. Yeah and so. God what can i same like an amazing time but our lyricists from the nineties were actually living in the projects dealing with those kinds of things. And it's not that. I'm going to an nego told me something it's like. There is music like that still. It's just not as popular see. I wish it was in that way. It's i you know what if diego's ever gonna listen to this episode. He i can. I can actually right there. These are the okay. I can vouch for what he'd said. Because let's put it this way. Kendrick lamar j. cole. They rarely win. Grammy has introduced me to camera Kendrick lamar do and i. I'm like all right now. I get it. Yeah right yeah it was. It was a travesty that one year. I'm not saying. Michael moore was a bad rapper or a bad musician or anything like that but he won the grammy over kendrick. That was highway robbery. And even macklemore sent a message to kendrick after that grammy's show and said you should've gone then you should have this year. So that's the thing. I love this. We've got some hip hop talk at the beginning of the desert. Don't just hilarious. Because nobody would ever assume that i like hip hop. I'm like dude. You don't look like. I have cassette tapes. I have eight tracks. i have an not from. Now it's not that. I've decided to collect these things now. No no no no no no no. I bought them at the time. That's how i grew up. Do you ever think of digitally like digitizing them like putting them in a have. I have i have to and this is one of the it's hilarious. I think that one of the one of the things that locked me in most of the apple ecosystem which is something. We're gonna talk about right. Now is a service that launched twenty team that's called is match and so what it does. Is it grabs. Whatever music you've digitalized and makes it part of your items library. You may thirty dollars a year and for me. There's so much music that's not on. I tunes that. I bought so many years ago or that was restricted and was not available. Because that's one of the biggest problems with streaming services and so i literally have all these all my cd's from back. Then all my cassettes. They're all digitalized. Okay let's tell you all right so we're giving a little bit of thanks for our hip hop upbringings. So i wanted to make sure on the weekend just at what does that i know. So my favorite sorry about that. so how. what is this. The eagle child so my favorite coffee shop which is around the corner. Sadly is out of hot drinks. And so i'm going to have to drink for the first time ever a cold. Shy t la okay. Well cheers. i have my. I have my usual measures so we are giving a little bit of things. it is the weekend just after thanksgiving and i know that for me as as high may knows. I just woke up like an hour ago. The recovery of course you did. I usually wake up late. But i saw the recovery after thanksgiving always a real thing for us americans but like the The i wanted to start off the show a little bit with a little bit of like what are some things that we're thankful for Whether or not it's based or anything like that. Because i think in my case i have quite a few things that i'm actually pretty thankful for us for us. Tech is concerned. Because as we're gonna talk about the max later. Wow we've come a long way when it comes to stuff that we use on the daily..

I like it and it's also stuff because because there's not like an infinite amount of these stories read and recorded in red There's it's kind of like apple tv. Plus i watched like you child things because they were there. Not because the interest you and so because there are because not everything in news than finding things that i wouldn't click otherwise and it was probably like a curation aspect to as well wisher oppose only paying four good stories to be to be narrated right so you almost get like a quality food to just by doing that. Yeah and fourteen point. Three two new. Ui discovery of stuff. So they have like a dedicated channels if you find like a publisher news and it just has magazine i out. They have one of those now. Dedicate just audio stories so that you can even get bad like discovery of those things cool if you pay for apple news plus and you haven't tried out this feature for the audience stories check it out And if you pay for is it only in premier. Is that thirty dollars a month plan. Yeah separately new. Only news pluses on so then in that case you go check it out. 'cause you're not studying any extra money on it and do you listen to the apple news today saying the news update thing. No i have tried it. And i think it's it's it's a good quality podcast and the back and forth. There is very very nice between the two hosts their distinctive. You can you know. It's it's good to have two distinctive voices on a podcast like one with an american accent and one with a with a british accent for example. Because you know who's speaking that'd be a good idea for a polka on that podcast. It's multi female and that's a distinction and and But but but just grave but the so with news plus audio the stories it is not what's been trending on twitter present current events developing acid I wouldn't see otherwise and on the apple news today. Podcast off it stuff. That i definitely could have reported I can write that script to ya. 'cause i can actually access the news today news today. Who's fable apple podcasts worldwide. So i have tried listened to it. It's fine but so american like new stories and it's basically or about politics like found so i just haven't been attached on a daily basis like i listen jake usually but if they did like a uk version if like uk hosting uk stories. I probably listened to like as it stands. I think they get production. And but yeah love to actually have the the nonfiction duration stories available to me so they brought it out seeing happen for you just like apple apple. Pay cash or happen. Radio was that know. So would you united states in australia and nowhere else until apple music right. Yeah this week. As we've got the holiday ad and i say haven't seen it yet so adding what i think about it. Would you think about it to look at it on my phone. Is there asthma cameras. Just describe it. It's it's the rapper. Sierra wack who. I heard of before the advocate and she goes into a room. She's about having fun and then she talks to a big homepod. Two some music okay. And then she slams the homepod and he goes smoke the heim pad outlets mohammed comes a mini version of her and they have a dance back and forth and stuff so the whole lot is just one person at oversee using cgi to like sherman form. I immediately thought this is great for they cover production protocols because you cost of one especially since the place because nobody apples like holiday. They haven't like the street. And how do you do a family in this environment. Yeah and so they just didn't so this feels like a follow onto the original homepod. Add you remember the homepod out with the we're winning at. Yes i do if it was much like that much like that and then basically the is yes. This is the holiday ad for twenty twenty. Whatever year okay then. We usually gush over so interesting that with all the new products you know they well max iphone ipad. Watch all those things. They pick home of many as as the one or home. General is the one to decide to push in the ad but also ninety nine bucks compliment. He's pretty good gift. You know if you don't get this person don't spend too much you know. It's like homepod mini pretty pretty good. Yeah basically tomorrow. The ad is the magic of mini. Asked whether i. I think he's a fine add. He's definitely gonna be remembered one in the history of apple ads. If you know. I mean i think there are probably a lot limited by the current environment. So they could help many.

I mean i'm still waiting to see what apple says about the dt k. Policy right maybe i'll pick. What do you do with that. Because it's a least you paid for and as far as you know you just send it back. No monies exchanged current you paid for the lease leases over now but the power. Pc the intelligence agen there was a perk at the end which was with the papacy transition. You got you got.

I might be wrong. About the money-back power. I think i think he might have been you either. Have your money back or you. Get the i mac. I think that's what it was. I obviously i wasn't in the world those days. It was something like that but the current the current situation with the gt k the contract. I signed look if they just want it back at ended. Okay fine but i'm hoping what they're gonna say look as an incentive to actually return these things. He's an update without towards at mini right. Like because i paid five hundred dollars to addition kit the matt minis were like six hundred dollars if they said you can get me one hundred dollars. I'll just right. Yeah i mean. I signed the contract. That means i just give it back to them and i've had my six months of use out of it right for five hundred dollars so if that's the case i'm not going to be so that's just the rally but i'm not going to buy me now on just in case. They have this prison for us. I think but but you are so okay so you know. One of the equations is like if prices no option the mac mini the. There is a mac and that would say vices. Not not a problem then. There's still a tool that wouldn't fit your needs. And so you're saying that. The mac mini actually would fit some needs like it'd be benefited us. It yes yeah. Yeah yeah occupied rises almost off the table right. Yeah i can use a mac mini for like plex home market. Do photo storage actually do some build and like like. I'm saving the mac mini for one of those days. When i is really wanted something tacky you know. Yeah because i don't have a need for never bought it. Yeah i could use it right like it'd be cool to have the i i mean i do my. We could pull off the mat. Mini for instance right instead of me. I'm to worry about the fans being allowed annoying me and or i off the mat. Many for instance. I can't do my day to day. Program work on the mat. Many really but i could poke on it so i could use it right. But we'll see m one commentary.

It's one of my favorite features that redesign one of my favorite big sur features. That is the redesigned. He has the slightest rumors about redesigned product. It's like it's like a lice which is good. Yes or no not yet. It's like just enough that we can think about it. Yeah nothing like the apple design at all. It says yes or no resigned in a couple of products where he says yes on for us. I guess this is kind of like unless you're poet just before. He takes his thanksgiving holiday because he whipped out. This report said that the iphone twelve demand is tracking ahead of expectations for private and twelve primax. And that's gonna offset slightly weakness insides for the iphone. Twelve hundred twelve mini so just in terms of initial reception quite believes the tour. Prianto primax again. You know better reception by customers and that no more twelve and the twelve. Many on on-site much. If you're one of those people who think like the twelve he's gonna set world on five. Maybe not maybe not so true. But that's just honest expectations on different product. That's making like pro right. Because i think quite was expecting the numeral twelve and the mini to be more popular because of the letter price turns at this less popular cove road wherever the people are liking people are instead opting for the more expensive models to get a slice features on in terms of the product categories quote suggests that they're going to be full factor redesigns coming to apple watch and matt burks in two thousand twenty one as far as the ipad consent.

Yeah there's been a lot of smoke that maybe the mini led motors have launched in two thousand twenty but then production delays happened because the pandemic pushed off into next year. But we can expect high price with me displays soon soon. Basically the next ipad per day probably have a miniature display whenever the next ipad pro happens and many led is on the roadmap for max right so today's report but from quote from ages ago. Yes yes of. He doesn't say The redesign phone fat. Maximum feature many reasons. If you're mac person as the ipad pro. I'm gonna get with that bad air where mac person who enjoys ipads and so they've had air does that for me Having many led are. that's enticing. But i think that's great for the people that are like the ipad is is what the mac is to me. And so that's for them. But it's not going to be left off in the mac in las. Come to the mac.

"The app you can still buy the intel based mac mini with the core. I five or i seven and you can still buy that now. It still has the four thunder both reports and all the old mac mini stuff. So you can still get that intel based mac mini alongside the new m one powered mac mini. That's unlike the macbook air will. You can't get that intel macbook air anymore. So that's the mac mini with the m one and finally also announced a mac book pro. Just the thirteen inch thirteen inch. Now has the m one chip now. A couple of things about this there is a cooling system so you do have a fan. But they're saying it is two point eight times faster than the previous macbook pro thirteen inch. You get seventeen hours of web browsing twenty hours of video playback long battery life in any mac. Apple's claiming they improved the mics and there's to be seaports that also do the us before so you can drive a pro display x. dr six k.

Thirteen inch macbook. Pros only have those two ports now. They are still selling the intel based mac book pro thirteen inch on their website. So if you wanna get the four usb ports or you still want to get the intel core i seven or you still wanna get just the intel based mac for whatever reason but you definitely want those four ports you can still buy the intel macbook pro thirteen inch and you also have the m one power to macbook pro thirteen inch both on the website. The thirteen inch macbook pro starts at twelve ninety nine eleven ninety nine for education. But that twelve ninety nine gets you gigs of ram and a two hundred and fifty six gig.

"Apple's butterfly keyboard which endured endless shots from fans and critics like finally gone. Welcome to the age of the magic keyboard. I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me. Is One of the foremost experts laptops our own. Dan Ackerman welcomed in Roger. Apple just released. Thirteen inch MAC pro which comes with one of its new magic keyboards that essentially wipes out the butterfly keyboard from its lineup right. How are you feeling about that you know? This was the last butterfly keyboard that was left. Was it was one of the reasons why that thirteen inch pro? A little bit outdated compared to the rest of the math book line. They updated the fifteen inch last year. And turn it into a sixteen inch and that was the first time they said all right this keyboard. No more we're going to call it the magic keyboard and it's a little different than it's the same but it's better you like it and we did. Then they finally did the same thing for the macbook air back in March very recently so and they say hey we got some more bad news coming up though. That's got be the thirty. The one laptop left a thirteen inch bro. So that you know there are a couple of things about it that we're feeling a little dated. The keyboard was one of them and now everybody has done magic keyboard. It's interesting they used that branding on the ipad keyboard also and also understand keyboard. You get with your. I'm AC. Let's back things up a little bit and let's talk a bit about the butterfly keyboard. What was so controversial about all the problems? They snuck that butterfly keyboard in with a new product. Five years ago it was the twelve inch Mac but not air not pro just MAC book they had not had a product with just that name at a longtime although they used to and one of the things that made that twelve inch. Mac Book which I loved so small and portable was over putting the super flat keyboard in and it's not going to have a Z shaped scissors switch under the key like so many other laptops it's GonNa have a butterfly which is basically the four corners and the sensor would indicate when a key was depressed so they could make it super slim. Did it in there? The problem was it was so slim. It didn't really feel like you were typing it all. It didn't have that right. Feel at also people immediately started getting the key stuck because there was so little space underneath them any little bit a dust debris would get in there so immediately. There were a lot of problems with it. And what apple did was they said. Oh that's great. We're going to put these in everything. Well exactly and I think the controversy grew when I got my new Mac Book. Air and my head. I hate to the butterfly keyboard. I was very underwhelmed and disappointed. But you you Dan. You wrote a defense of the butterfly. Tell me about that like how did you do? You still want me. Do you still have somewhat fond memories of that Pinger when everyone is saying something is awful accepting is great. Have to be that that contrarians you and say. Wait a minute navy. The conventional wisdom is not quite as universal as everybody thinks that. It's so that piece. I wrote lyrics called in defense of Mac Keyboard. I started out by saying I've remember I. I've come to raise the butterfly keyboard or to bury it but just to give you some context and what I said was number one you know. I used and tested extensively more than a half dozen books with his keyboard and I had like one stuck. He was able to fix myself but I didn't have problems a lot of other people. Didn't you just heard the Internet complainers? You know they have an outside boards. People don't go on twitter to describe that their products are working roughly as expected. Only if you have a problem secondly the butterfly keyboard evolved over time each product. They put it in. They made it a little bit better by the time they got to the last version at twenty eighteen. It had a rubber a rubber membrane under the keys which kept debris out and gave you a little more bouncing type at just totally different from the original. They locked with that. Nobody would have said it was wasn't great but it was fine. You know and and I I use that. Butterfly Keyboard Lot. It took some getting used to. I wouldn't say it's the greatest thing they've ever put in a product but it wasn't the worst thing either so the essentially the butterfly is no more. We can say goodbye. Say hello to the magic keyboard now. I I'm aware the magic keyboard fronts or the standalone accessory that you get with the Mac mini or i Mac but what what is what is special about what is magical about this. Magic keyboard found in the macbook pro. They took a lot of what people liked about the standalone keyboard. You're at least the most recent versions of them and the keys. Come up a little higher. They have little more travel. They've gone away from that photo. Censors at the corner That have to be tripped properly in order to register. It just feels much more like a traditional keyboard. If you look at it you go out. I don't really see that much of a difference but if you take a magic keyboard magic If you take a magic keyboard macbook air and put it next to a butterfly keyboard macbook air which I did then you can see the difference even in the latest butterfly keyboard which comes up a little bit more. Imagine keyboard comes up even more than that but neither one of them are the same as that as the old Mac keyboard which would really which really jumped up the real island style keys which frankly was never as great as I think everyone thought it was. I always found the KI. Ki Cat Small and little too wobbly. You've had some time with the the new thirteen inch. Macbook pro is this who is for who needs upgrade. Because it's you know this these things aren't cheap. So who would you recommend by one of these devices? I will say they've redone. The line completely since like last November Between the sixteen inch fro which used to be fifteen the thirteen inch pro and the air so they have a solution for most people. I think frankly most people would be happy with the air. The air was the laptop to get for most of the twenty ten nine ninety nine. It could get you through four years of college. Everyone in the coffee shop had one then. Got KINDA STALE THE PARTS STALE. But they've refreshed it now and they're keeping up to date. Which which I like. And they brought it back down to nine ninety nine. If you're going to get an air I I would say and I hate it. Pains me to say this. Spend the extra hundred bucks. Get The ten ninety nine version with Karai five or That's my one caveat about that With the pros you get different classes. Although the thirteen which they just updated you only get the newer tense Jan moons but the two more expensive configurations which which I don't love. Yes that's that that that kind of. It's a big big hook there. It's kind of like you really have to spend a lot to get the latest processor. But that's and that's something that's found on most PC's right or most modern near PC's right. Yeah but apple has a special way of guiding you towards the more expensive models. They did fix one thing on the thirteen inch fro. That was a bit of a rip. They used to only give you like twenty gigs of storage for the twelve. Ninety nine base model and the fact that I have to say twelve ninety nine hundred. Twenty eight gigs. In the same sentence is is shocking to me. So they said because they hadn't updated that product in a while and it was. It was already behind the Times so they just went and Double Bay storage and everything. 'cause that cost them nothing to do. So it's fifty six five twelve or one terabyte now which is at least more reasonable if you're going to get a new laptop it shouldn't have less than a two fifty six GIG. Ssd All right. Well lastly just looking back at the butterfly I mean you think this'll just be an embarrassing blip. You think butterfly will ever come back or are we done with it. I think we're good now. Everyone's happy with the branding that they can use across all these different products especially the three hundred and fifty dollar clip on. I add keyboard which cost more than just a base model ipad. Does it'll go down in history somewhere between apple maps and you're holding it wrong gates you know. Not The worst not the best. It took him several years to to see the light on this. I think keyboards a crate. First Time I used one back with a sixteen inch I said to myself well where the assistance last years okay. This is good. This works alright. That's a wrap could check out dance coverage on C. DOT COM. If you have any questions Davis voicemail at eight six two two five zero five seven one.

You have are two new books. Which one do you have? <hes> I'm reviewing the macbook air. The new twenty nineteen macbook Air Dancy for is reviewing the new twenty nineteen Mac book pro and tree pro little pro. We don't have a name for here's what happened. <hes> apple updated the air they added a true tone display to it and they drop the price by one hundred bucks and then they took the Mac book escape which was the macbook pro that had the actual button function enro- and only two ports on the side and they put the Touch Barn the touch pad on it and they updated the processor and they left it with just two ports and that I don't remember the exact price there but it's like two hundred bucks more than the air now so those are the two computers that are new alongside those things the most important thing they did in my opinion is instead of updating the MAC book a little Itty bitty Mac book they just murdered it killed Italy just destroyed it so you. I think I saw you say this in slack okay. You were like the killing. The twelve inch Mac book is Apple Walking back. Its entire five year plan for these computers. I think so you can you defend that so okay it all stems from the very first computer of this new generation of macbooks was the MAC book. It was the first one with the keyboard word the new design the new tiered the battery and most of all they just called it Mac book. They didn't call it MAC book air. They didn't call it Mac Book Ultra whatever they're like this is Mac book and everything else is is like macbook pro and that was meant to be like the default and in the intervening years the keyboards went sideways apple forgot that people like processor updates and expect so just didn't bother making in those the very clearly didn't know what they wanted to do with this lineup and you could tell they didn't know what to do because their bestselling Mac was the one that was not part of this new generation it was the macbook air forever and so they finally really updated the macbook air and just made you know either a slimmed-down macbook pro or a beefed up macbook macbook take it. I think it's more of a slimmed-down Mac book pro called it the air throughout the world and it was like Oh yeah that's that's what we want. That's the the thing we've been asking you for five years and so of course they they're killing the MAC book because they're like Oh. Well people just want this thing and this vision of the future of what Max are going to be. We need to turn that dialed on a little bit. Go back to the other kind of keyboard and we'll do that stuff next year in the meantime <hes> at least we've got like normalized lineup so I think that the main problem is that the air brand name is too good like people love the macbook Luke Air. They love the name they know what it is the default computer it's it's the Joanna Stern for two hundred dollars more you can get a Mac book air right like it is that computer in so they what they should have done was called that my God did this entire..

Joe called Sierra morte, and it's, it's basically copra if you re skin it to GI, Joe and give it the GI Joe mythology and that's not a knock. I think it's a fantastic fit. I think aesthetically he's got a really good grasp of, of the GI Joe characters. And unlike unlike the GI Joe Saturday morning cartoon, while the comic is an exactly a bloodbath. It isn't exactly lasers explosions, and everyone comes out. Okay. On the other side, only other day does anybody say yo Joe I feel like a thing that has to happen. Right. I'm pretty sure I'm pretty sure I read that a while ago. But the main thing I wanna talk about this week is black badge number five and number six this is, of course, written by Kint drawn by Tyler Jenkins with colors by his wife Hillary Jenkins. I know I've talked about this book before, but I feel like it's really coming into it. Its own. I think the first arc was a little slow it didn't really world build and have the forward momentum that I wanted to have. But this most recent arc really has has picked up where that one sort of didn't exactly follow through before that. I just wanna say like this. Book's production quality like the card stock covers the great graphic design elements on the inner and outer covers like, it's, it's perfect, and anyone who's read Kim book like department, h remind management, you've seen that he has this sort of, like all encompassing cover to cover aesthetic that he sticks to and just just just a continuation and it's, it's, it's evident here as well. But these issues follow the fact that our group of scouts called the black badge troop are participating in the rainbow badge jamboree along with three other teams. So it's black badge. There's one troop, I know all their names. I think they gave them an issue for didn't look it up. I'm sorry, guys, there's one that's basically made up of like intelligence sort of kids. So it's all like a basically brain trust. There's a cioppino troop. Then there's the all girls troupe. So the teams are with Lloyd at various locations, on an island airdrops will be randomly dispersed and operate on a first come first serve basis. And I team to the top of the dorm volcano wins. So for those of you who aren't under the age of like twenty five they're talking about that. Fortnight thing that everyone else's Ben talking about it's, it's basically fortnight or pub g or. Yeah. And they're doing a battle royale. Well, Nick literature. Did that I I'm getting there. I'm getting yeah. Okay. They're getting they're getting their. And of course, there's not supposed to be any killing or maiming a fellow scouts you are allowed to die due to the elements or whatever misadventure going into, but you can't or aren't supposed to be killed. We'll see how that goes. Of course, they devilishly kick things off by putting the squad with the kid, the can't swim in a sinking boat and the team with claustrophobic kid in the middle of a cave that they'll have to swim out, right? Right. Which, which feels very ripped from the headlines for that whole kids in the cave last summer, whatever that was. Yeah. I was gonna say who's designing this, this game is this the creators of the hunger games. Like what the hell right? Well, it's supposed to be the overarching scouting organization. You know that oversees all these troops I think the girls on a hot air balloon. That's basically struggling state of the trees, and of course our, our group of kids. Dropped into the middle of a desert, where you have this exchange where one of them goes, this is hunger games. Not Lord of the flies. Then the other kid goes it ain't hunger games. It's frigging, Harry Potter, the hunger games. Nobody got killed in Harry Potter. And then the other kid goes Cedric degree rip so. Nick. This is actual log this dialogue way. It's great. It's great. Like there's a who's very meta moment where they reflect upon the literature. That's influencing the book. So I appreciate it. That, that's pretty great. It's pretty great. The artists just amazing. It's, it's so great. And you basically get a little forward momentum in the fact that the intelligence kids, tell them that there's actually this group called the Honor Society, whose goal is, of course, global destabilization because that's the that's just the obligatory check check the box Fillon response that has been using this Chambery to recruit kids. And so the kids that have been rumored to die or disappear within past years of the jamboree, some of them may have actually been recruited by this group. It was fantastic. It was great. We find out that the girls group actually uses a uses the whole girl scout cookies motif as a way to hide or conceal some of their some of their tools. They've got once called pink misty's which seem to have plastic explosives in them in. We see them diffuse a science Olympia, d- hostage-taking thing in the seventies by blowing a hole through some dudes chest. And they like you do know. And they have other ones that are basically a truth serum that are called told you so z-. So. Yeah, it's a lot of fun. It's I really, really enjoy this book. I think it's really taking off right now. And anybody who, who loved grass kings, get on this book, even if you really didn't love grass kings. I think the mood and tone of this is different enough that I would still say, give the try in less your like vary opposed to Tyler Jenkins art for some reason than, than that might be a dealbreaker. I guess. Gotcha. I still haven't picked this. I should say I've picked all the issues, but I haven't read any of them because just like department h I knew what I was getting into in that it was going to be very good. So I'm not too worried about it, and it sounds to me, like it's, it's pretty fantastic, because I love grass kings after you force me to read it. And I feel like this book is just in, in, in that same line of good that this pair has made in the past. Yeah. It's, it's yeah. It's right in line but not really soaked in the melancholy that grassings was, I would say right, right? Well, cool. Kate. What about you? How have you been how comic books spin all that jazz? I am a little ill so apologies. If I if I sound awful. I've been busy with home improvement. And I've been busy with work, and I went camping a little bit. And so you've been snowed in so been marathoning, the, the Tim Allen series home improvement as I would've. Yeah. Who's gonna make ooh knowing because we all have to. Sandra. Please cut all that out. Anyway. Don't be an Al. Don't be spoilsport. Keep it in. Yes, Kate, how comic books otherwise good. I joined the fan club of immortal hulk by Allie wing. Brian get it off the library. So of course it was sitting there and I read it and between that and reading animal man for this week. I think I've read more superhero, comics in the last two weeks than I normally read in about two months. And otherwise, I read a book called maker, comics bay, click appro in its by Fallon coche, and it's published by first second who I continue to be impressed by and I swear somebody from the IRC crew mentioned this, but I can't for the life of me. Remember who? So either whoever it was. Thank you, because this is pretty fantastic. I it's got whimsical are in dialogue. It's about this girl who exist an fantasy world. And she's an apprentice, she's been assigned to her magician master, whoever she's being trained by and she's like, wait baking isn't magic, but as we come to find out through the course of the book baking is magic. Because we're not because. It is a little bit in settling all of her, and greediest and finish baked goods, I'll have faces and talk to her like secondary. Oh, wait. That's like some weird Herman shit. Don't don't like make real relationships. You know, just to keep your distance yet, the shelled the pre cracked eggs, have one character voice, and then the yolks inside of the eggs are another character voice. So the owning at one point the shell and the yolk talk to one another or they're both hockey here at the same time or something it was. Like cars when they have the is in the faces and I'm like, will wear the OPEL. And if there are any people, then why do they have doors and what is this world? Yeah. About. But it was it is very cute. And I now know why it's important to sifter flower before you make a cake and all of the recipes are in the back of the book, the all the recipes that she makes so I'm going to be, I'm going to have to be making a little bit more to try some of these was going to ask, if there was like some instruction portion of the comic because I, I saw an Amazon looks like it's just a comic, but there's actually some learning to be book then. Yeah, I think that it's probably geared toward bull, people who are younger than me, and he case, I was gonna say children, but maybe teenagers that are learning to bake, it's going to say there's an oven involved, so you probably at least have to be over three. Yeah. The ingredients are telling her why it's important that you sift, your flower with your baking soda, and the different temperatures of butter and why you want your butter at a certain temperature for certain things. It's very informative. It's like it's like one of those things where you're watching the great British bake off, and you're like, oh, I learned a thing even though you were just consuming. This media that you. Yeah. Yeah. And this is a whole series so far. There's fix a car out that I also got from the library and have yet to read, and then there's another three that are due to be released within the year. So I'm going to be learning. A lot from very fun. Little whimsical books were evil when Kate checks out commit the perfect crime. Make your comics the perfect crime. Like couldn't. Well, that's awesome. Honestly, I feel like we talked about this at some point in some group chat, but I cannot put my finger on it this, I'm glad that is good as it looked. The cover looks gorgeous. So, you know what's Larry's and while I'm not sure, but I'm pretty confident about this. Well, Kate seems to think someone else introduced this to her. I'm pretty sure Kate found this on her own introduced it to everyone else. I don't know where from then thought someone else brought it to you..

"Like I have to charge it in be 'cause I forget about it. And then when I needed, it's not charged. But potentially similar max and macbooks. And we know that we already got a thirteen inch and fifteen inch macbook pro this past July, but it looks like we may get a MAC book air. Potentially, maybe some new. I max equipped with Intel's eight generation processor more than likely a new MAC mini. Pasta with configurations targeted her users that on the on the pro side. Which could be good. Now, the I MAC mini has not been updated since two thousand fourteen in all honesty and some of the things and thinking about doing and some stuff I'm doing here I would. I would like to replace one more MAC mini this year, the Kennett they have this higher performance one. That's something I'd look at. More than likely, no updates. The I MAC pro, they've already said that's not gonna come in two thousand nineteen. Also some sources are saying a higher end version of the air pods ambience with you there. The air pods in my opinion. After using them now for eight months and actually not losing any is that they have by far the best noise cancellation in existence. I was. Probably two months ago. I was. Over on ring Corbeta Hawaii and near the airfield and the there was some f eighteen that were starting up on the line, and I was on my ear buds. Air pods. And the person couldn't hear the jet starting. I was amazed on how much isolation those have. I use them in the car. People can't tell him it. It's really, I spent a lot of time the car drive my kid around. So. Ama- will if I lost an air pod today, immediate order another one immediately. So that tells you how much I in their expensive who. But they're great. They really are great. Of course. We're gonna see, I s. twelve MAC OS from hobby is on the on the line. Maybe some apple streaming services, potentially, you know, of at Apple's names nab some big names like Oprah Winfrey, Steven, Spielberg Ming others. They've hired some top television executive spirit and effort. And the company is depleted billion dollar budget in the last year to recruit projects. So we'll see what happens there. We may see. The air power, a wireless charging pad. We may see an update to the home pod, maybe even a less expensive one. You guys know I've got a home pod. It rarely rarely gets used. It's largely my. My kids use Amazon devices almost exclusively. And what's funny is is when I use the home pod and play music on it. It gets everyone's attention. It sounds so incredible. It really, really does, but it doesn't get used that much. The apple TV. I use the apple TV the most in the house for movies I have. I am a two ninety nine a, you know, the dollar deals. I mean music store by movies that are, you know, a buck or five dollars or something, some classics and stuff that no one besides myself poll watch. So that's about what I use it for the apple TV is to for movies that I buy. And again, not major may not fourteen ninety nine ones, the cheap ones that are on sale. They have some good deals. Sometimes they really do. And I like watching movies on the apple TV. I think the the quality is really good when you buy when you actually buy the digital version. So that's that's kind of the rundown of what we're expecting on Wednesday. So we'll see are you know, watch live. I think a lot of people will also gonna do with your old devices and I've got some stuff laying around a matter of fact. I got asking this afternoon. I've got a an I first generation, I think, ipad pro and I'm like, where's that ipad? And I'm sure again, it's in one of the kids rooms. So I did find my eye pan case that was upon the network and it it wasn't so either someone's got me signed out or who knows. But it's here. I just too much stuff. But sell your stuff, get rid of it before your before. It becomes. Before comes extinct or sell it. Or jailbreak it some stuffing jailbreak uses a backup..
