Apple Says Notch is a ‘Smart Way’ to Give Users More Space for Content on New MacBook Pros

The notch on the newly redesigned MacBook Pro offers a “smart way” to give users more room for their content and allowed Apple to make the bezels thinner and provide more screen real-estate to customers, an Apple official has said during a recent media interview. The inclusion of a notch on the entirely revamped MacBook Pros was a surprise and was one of the few last-minute rumors that surfaced ahead of Apple’s “Unleashed” event last week.

Google’s future in enterprise hinges on strategic cybersecurity

Gaps in Google’s cybersecurity strategy make banks, financial institutions, and larger enterprises slow to adopt the Google Cloud Platform (GCP), with deals often going to Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services instead. It also doesn’t help that GCP has long had the reputation that it is more aligned with developers and their needs than with enterprise and commercial projects.

But the number of attacks was 2.5x the number seen during the 2012 London Summer Olympics. NTT’s Andrea MacLean compared the cybersecurity struggle to Harry Potter’s final fight against Voldemort, calling the effort to protect the event “Herculean.” “Cybercriminals certainly saw the Games — and its related supply chain — as a high-value target with low downtime tolerance.

Apple M1 Pro & Max Surprises. by Jean-Louis Gassée

The first thing to say about the M1 Pro and M1 Max, Apple’s new homegrown processors, is that we misunderestimated them. The chips were a well-guarded secret; pre-announcement scuttlebutt mentioned an “M1X” chip, christened in the manner of the A12X that powers the third generation 2018 iPad Pro. Just as the A12X was a brawny derivative of the A12 found in the 2018 iPhone X series, with an additional core, a beefier GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), dedicated neural network hardware, and 70% more transistors, so, too, the M1X will add a little bit of everything to the well-regarded SoC (System On a Chip).

Despite having just 5.8% sales, over 38% of bug reports come from the Linux community

My game – ΔV: Rings of Saturn (shameless plug) – is out in Early Access for two years now, and as you can expect, there are bugs. But I did find that a disproportionally big amount of these bugs was reported by players using Linux to play. I started to investigate, and my findings did surprise me. Percentages are easy to talk about, but when I read just them, I always wonder – what is the sample size?
