The Soul of a Different Machine (Premium)

I’ve been using the MacBook Air 15-inch M3 each day since it arrived in late March, and I took it to New York last week for the Qualcomm briefing on the Snapdragon X Elite hands-on experience. Between these experiences and my ongoing work with Windows 11 on several PCs at home, it’s clear to me that Arm is the future on the desktop. And that the only real question is which platforms we’ll use. Related to that, I previously expressed my desire to get an X Elite-based laptop as soon as possible, preferably a 15-inch Surface Laptop, assuming Microsoft produces such a thing. That desire is, if any ..read more

My wife makes dinner most nights, which works out nicely because she’s a terrific cook, good enough that there are certain meals we’ll never order in a restaurant. Why pay for something that’s better—and less expensive—to eat at home? My contribution is less creative but still essential: I clean up the mess. After each meal, I gather the plates, head over to the sink, and get to work. And each night, before we go to bed, I turn on the dishwasher. Me being me, I try to make this work as efficient as possible. And me being me, I struggle with certain blockers to that efficiency. My ADDled brain ..read more

Many years ago, someone asked me how I could defend a company like Microsoft, which at that time lorded over personal computing in a uniquely homogeneous way. That was the wrong question: I don’t defend, support, or God help us all, cheerlead for Microsoft, and never have. I support, defend, and cheerlead for its customers, its users. These are real people who sometimes lose track of the nature of the relationship they have with a company that can’t seem to stop abusing them. We pay this company for services. Leaving aside any legal arguments one might make, it’s reasonable to expect to get wh ..read more
