Splitting Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus into seperate, independent company’s I a bloody good idea. They made a mistake letting the acquisitions happen in the first place. Now is the time to fix that mistake.

The solution to both MacBook Pro keyboard reliability and the lack of usability of the TouchBar is to replace the whole keyboard with a multi-function screen. Can be a keyboard when you need it and a more functional TouchBar for apps where that makes sense.

Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History is always brilliant, but I particularly liked this episode. overcast.fm

I was somewhat worried that Solo would be a disaster. Happy to see that isn’t the case. Early reviews are good 🙂

There is zero chance that North Korea agrees to give up their nuclear aresenal (nor should they). Ukraine, Iran and Lybia are all perfect examples of what happens when you exchange a nuclear deterrent for promises.

Pretty happy to see Rage rebooted with a sequel. Rage was fun, looking forward to more.

I continue to think the MacBook Pro keyboard issue is environmental. Seems to be a camp of people who have repeated failures and everyone else is just fine. A design defect doesn’t explain that.
