CodeWeavers' CrossOver ran 32-bit Windows Intel binary on macOS on Arm CPU emulating x86 – and nobody died

I still don't quite understand this though. The mechanism is to detect whether code has been tampered with. You do not need a developer account to sign anything and can basically sign yourself with blank details. Another person could re-sign the code themselves if they wanted to as well. In what way would or could Apple prevent this code from being run?

As for not being able to download code from GitHub and compiling it - that isn't the case. It will simply create and sign the code with an ad-hoc signature during compile time.

Also how does this differ from say Microsoft or Apple preventing programs from running which have been flagged by Defender/XProtect.

Not sure where you got the half speed of 950 from. - it is trading blows with the discrete GTX 1050 and is an integrated solution. source: https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/apples-m1-chip-can-apparently-outperform-some-amd-and-nvidia-graphics-cards

Re: My new M1 laptop is in order now....

I got an 8GB Air as I didn't want to sink too much into these and will probably get itchy feet and want to move in a couple of years anyway. It's rather remarkable how well these run with 'only' 8GB of RAM.

So it turned out Epic made it up

...and Apple's statement before this was they weren't planning on ever doing it.

Re: But have they fixed

This is putting me off as well, it has been like this for years and years. My old 2013 15" did the same. They should allow the Intel built in graphics to drive external monitors if necessary. Also cuts down on heat.

Re: Selective deafness

Less than half the battery capacity, a low res screen, slower ram and storage which is about a quarter of the speed if not less than what you are comparing too. It might well represent great value for money and give much more performance per £ in your opinion but comparable it is not.

And after all that do they allow employees to carry mobile phones in their pockets?
