They've been breaking the rules for months but it's a coincidence their apps and servers all got taken down at once.

That's nice Boris. But I can't slip a DSLR in my pocket and I don't want to be that guy who always carries his camera case around.
I can attest that when I used to own a discreet camera, we never had it when something interesting happened that was unexpected. Even growing up as a kid on family holidays "did you bring the camera?" was a mantra preceding family arguments.
Couldn't pass that by :) Like Blender GIMP is one of those tools you can't casually use for the odd thing here or there, you need to invest some time. Which to be fair could be said for Photoshop and Maya. Since my needs for image manipulation are so rare, I struggle along with Paint.Net (or even Paint).
Apple are making a big deal about ML capabilities on the M1 chippery but what use does this have in a commercial laptop used for gaming/music production/video editing/general use?
Is it used for everyday purposes I'm simply not aware of? I can't imagine Apple would bother with it for no reason but other than possibly Siri, I'm struggling to think why this is a core part of the system.
Anyone got a good answer?
I can never fathom why most phones I see are crazed, and many are totally smashed like they've been hit with a hammer.
How do you even do that much damage? Anyone can drop a phone once in a while but they are reasonably tough. The impression I get is most people must drop their phone almost daily, if not throw it around?!

They didn't stop selling them yet, but they already reduced the range. The lower spec Mac Mini is gone for instance. 2nd hand is a option of course but not ideal.
On the other hand, how do you get an ARM version of Windows in the first place? I don't know you can buy it and if you can, does that mean another license purchase?
I wasn't expecting this to go live so soon, I was thinking to upgrade my 2012 MacMini as I use Parallels a lot for Windows VMs on my Mac.
I don't really see how this will be workable on ARM Macs since they can surely only run ARM guest/virtualised OS and Windows ARM is pretty niche.
Anyone else in this boat and have better intel? (!)
I remember when the 1+ cost 329 and was a genuine flagship contender. Over the years prices have crept up to the point the 1+ costs as much as an iPhone. Guess the whole iPhone Pro and Apple's redefinition of "flagship" as "over a grand" has muddied the waters. Remember when we thought a phone costing £1000 was a one-off gimmick, now Apple has convinced us it's the norm!
My 6T is still going strong but for my use, the top-spec Nord sounds pretty nice. Although I am not a huge fan of OxygenOS.
I don't want to have my phone make sacrifices for you old fuddy duddies. It takes up space and adds another hole to the case.
If your main argument is "I have to charge them" then you're really reaching. As for showing your green credentials, in my experience wired models last less time. A battery is probably going to last longer than the crappy wires. Not that is matters because the packaging takes up more space than the unit!
If we can have both, great. If only they could make headphones that run off USBC...
Why would they make an adapter when they think nobody wants wired headphones?
To be honest it would be far easier to just get a BT headphone set, you seem to be cutting off your nose to spite your face.
I deliberately got the 6 not the 6T to retain 3.5mm as long as possible, but ended up not using it. No wire is so wonderful.
What restrictions affect the normal user? They can make calls to people on other phones, they can use 3rd-party messenging and video call apps as well as Apple's own, they can stream and download music and video from non-apple sources...
Sure they can't easily download the app you wrote and put on your web-site, but they don't want to.
Might as well ask why anyone buys a PS4 rather than a PC... 'cos they want to use it not piss about with it.
I assume you are quite old @Sampler, because people don't use those things even when at home... they'll sit in front of their 60" TV using their 6" phone for email, social media, web browsing, shopping and gaming, and typically its their only music device too.
People stuck at home might even be using the phones more?
Along with ehe new iPhone 12, prices on the 11, SE and XR have been slashed. You can get the 11 for £599 which is comparable with OnePlus, which bills itself as a mid-range phone.
SE for £399... has Apple ever had a phone that cheap?
If you're on an older model, these are attractive prices.
It's interesting that a community (Regtards) who is generally EXTREMELY anti censorship is rushing to attack someone for suggesting that censoring this particular topic is worth some consideration. I think banning it is a good idea but for anti-censorship types it does raise the question: are you actually anti-censorship? Or just against it as long as it's on topics you don't have a problem with?
One assumes that since Google developers are not idiots, and they test their products, this blindingly obvious use case has been considered.
How it works I have no idea... it could detect the words being spoken, it could match the message against a databank of known messages, maybe recorded messages have different audio profiles... if a human can realise within 1-2s I would bet software can.
Under the Disability act all doors have to be large enough for 3 wheelchair users to enter abreast, so as long as it's a modern building...
But if we're talking warehouses or industrial buildings it's a lesser issue. Although how it copes with internal doors... I assume troops follow it in maybe?
