Apple silicon for Macs is finally here!

Avatar

on

Apple held a product launch event Tuesday, where it announced its first homemade chip for the Mac, the M1.

The company introduced three new Macs powered by the chip: A new MacBook Air laptop, a new 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop and Mac Mini desktop computer. Apple made several claims about the M1′s performance and how it’ll contribute to better battery life in the new Macs.

Earlier this year, Apple announced its plans to use “Apple Silicon” in its laptops and desktop computers running the MacOS operating system. Apple has used Intel chips in its Mac computers since 2005. The transition means Apple will start using chips based on the same technology as the chips in iPhones and iPads. It also means Macs will be able to run apps originally developed for iPhones.

Personally here at Tech Bytes we are excited for this development, but we will probably wait before picking up anything with the new M1 Apple Silicon chips. Past experience with Apple is when they try new things, it usually takes a few rounds before they get it right.

    Is “WFH” really a good thing?

    Bill Gates predicts that most in-person meetings will be a thing of the past and that “50% of business travel” will never return after the Covid pandemic.

    If this is true, is it good or bad? And how do we adjust to it?

    In a recent businessinsider.com article Bill Gates said:

    “My prediction would be that over 50% of business travel and over 30% of days in the office will go away,”

    But also goes on to say:

    “More could be done on the software side to allow for serendipitous run-ins after meetings,”

    As of mid-October Microsoft announced that they are moving 150,000 people to permanently work from home.

    Inversely, there are arguments claiming that the “WFH” mandate is hurting their creativity and ability to collaborate and innovate.

    In an article written by Joe McKendrick, he argues that work from home culture could be hurting our creativity and our ability to rapidly innovate.

    “The team can come unglued pretty fast as members begin to feel psychologically disconnected from one another.”

    “61%, report they have not learned how to effectively delegate and empower virtual teams.”

    Wisdom from Reddit:

    “This was such an issue in Japan before, though on a usually smaller scale. We’d go back and forth between companies all over the city for minutes-long meetings, wasting usually half a day each time. Remote work has been so much more productive, though some people I work with see those who want to stay remote as ‘lazy’…” Reddit User kurodon85
