- Apple are deprecating scripting language support in MacOS.
If you use Python 2.7 on MacOS, be aware that future versions will not include it and you should instead use Python 3 which will also be removed.
- Speaking of Apple...
- Nvidia is reportedly partnering with Samsung to produce its next-generation GPU chips. (Tom's Hardware)
Samsung's 7nm process is, I believe, a little behind TSMC's technically, so this might be a question of pricing or capacity.
- How to Design for the Web in 2019.
Or, how to lose friends and alienate people.
- YouTube was one of the less censorious social networks. I say was. No longer. They have made a 540 degree change, possibly even 900, from their position just yesterday.
In 2018 alone we have made more than 30 policy updates.And every single one of those updates made things worse.
In trying to clear "confusion" over anti-harassment policy, YouTube creates more confusion. (Tech Crunch)
Confusion is their most profitable market segment after all.
YouTubers are unimpressed.
I like the suggestion that developers bundle scripting languages inside each app. Because what users want is bigger apps with more hidden security issues. I look forward to their future removal of the rest of the "legacy" binaries in /usr/bin.
I really, really like the understated warning about the possibility of losing all your data if you try to install the beta on an encrypted boot partition, with the multi-hour workaround of decrypting the drive, upgrading the OS, and then re-encrypting the drive.

Well, this is really just an extension of jwz' claim that applications grow until they contain a full-featured mail client.
Apparently you can get a plain old 200mm VESA wall mount for around $30, and many of those have articulating arms with tilt. I didn't realize they were that cheap. (My Skull Canyon NUC--and I think the regular ones but I'm not sure--come with all the mounting hardware to put them on a monitor's VESA mounting holes. However, I've noticed that a lot of monitors don't really have the ability to USE their mounting holes and the stand at the same time.

Once you let the special snowflakes make decisions, your business is doomed.
The firearms crowd has already left for their own platforms ( full30.com, etc ).
