Tonight I used the miter box to cut out the sides of the #chess box. It's going to be a real thick boi (I think it looks like a brown wooden doublestuff Oreo) but I've decided that's OK. I'll need to steam and straighten the boards just a little more.
It's really amazing to me how many folks don't realize how bad vertical integration is for markets, even when the people doing the vertical integrating are your favorite team.
One of the key features of Apple's success has been using the most appropriate processor technology for each device in each meta-generation: 68k, PPC, x86, x64, and now ARM.
But that relies on a market where processor makers are interested in building architectures they can sell to Apple as well as other companies. Unless they expect to spend a ton of money on CPU research - not development, but real, speculative, no guarantees research - forever, the move to build but not sell their own chips is putting market dominance ahead of actual sustainable innovation.
And that sucks!

Basic opsec advice that can't be repeated enough
in order of what will protect you the most
1) use two factor authentication (2FA)
2) use two factor that is not text message based
3) use a password manager and never reuse passwords
4) update every device you have at least monthly
5) keep up on scams and don't fall for them
6) use a separate email for health, banking, etc (another one if you are an activist)
7) are you using 2FA yet?
