Apple M1

It’s been in the rumor mill for some time but finally in November 2020 Apple made the official announcement – Apple Introduced the M1 processor and the very first batch of hardware based on it.

Not exactly sure what all the advantages of the new chip is, but I do feel it is here to stay. And with that I went ahead and got myself a laptop running the new M1 processor. It’s a MacBook Air with 16 Gb of memory and 500 Gb of flash storage. My initial plan is to avoid the Rosetta Translation Environment – as long as I can. I am running into a few issues and am trying to find workarounds. We’ll see how far I get.

Welcome 2021

I was going to write this on the 1st but kinda intentionally put it off till today. We are about a week into the new year, the Georgia run-off election is now behind us (though the final results are not yet in) and later this morning the house will count the Electoral College votes.

Thinking of John Lennon

There is nothing I can say about him that would not be something I heard somewhere else. But I was reminded that he died 40 years ago today. Which reminded me – I don’t recall a time when I learned of his death. As I think about it, it seems that I have always known of his death. But that it happened in 1980 – somehow is making me wonder how or why I don’t recall learning / hearing the news.
