amused as heck that no one on the PowerPC forum i check regularly has brought up a thread about apple silicon today, that’s awesome :D

also, macOS 10.16 Big Sur is a bullshit OS and Apple Silicon is gonna land those motherfuckers in anti-trust court, since they can’t be repaired, are not modular, and add substantially to the electronic waste stream

in plain english:

zero parts inside every new Mac being sold in 2020 (with exception for that inaccessibly spendy Mac Pro which’ll be even more scarce than pre-Trash Can Mac Pros) is replaceable, even by a repair shop, now that components are burnt-in-serial-mated to one another, making the Mac an instantly disposable appliance

just like the iPhone

enjoy your walled landfill!
