  • Why is Apple obsessed with a portless iPhone? 27/02/2021 at 17:52h
    Apple seems determined to ditch Lightning. But why? Apple is once more rumored to be ditching the Lightning port when it launches a future iPhone, possibly iPhone 13. But why? Based on claims by leaker McGuire Wood (a.k.a Jioriku), Apple is now having its engineers work on potential solutions to the problems we all know will come from losing the Lightning port – particularly the lack of a recovery option. Ignoring the fact that this should presumably have been worked out long before now if iPhone 13 is to be the first portless iPhone, I still don't quite understand what the end game is. Removing the Lightning port will give iPhone the same recovery issue that has befallen Apple Watch for years. Namely, it can't be restored or recovered without being given back to Apple. That's why engineers are apparently looking at ways to solve that right now. Enter what I have been told is dubbed Internet Recovery. Apple tasked both their software and hardware teams on this in different ...

The Patent Trial and Appeal Board, a U.S. body known by some a "death squad", may be declared unconstitutional by the Supreme court on Monday. From Bloomberg: The U.S. Supreme Court will consider whether to declare unconstitutional a system that technology companies, including Apple Inc. and Google Inc., have used to invalidate hundreds of patents and head off litigation. In an argument at the intersection of intellectual property and the separation of powers, the justices on Monday will consider a challenge to a congressionally-created board that critics have dubbed a "death squad because of its tendency to toss out patents."

  • Review: Elevate your workspace with FlexiSpot EG1 Standing Desk 27/02/2021 at 16:00h
    Elevate your office space. I consider working in an ergonomic, aesthetically pleasing office space ideal for creativity and productivity. I have been primarily working from home for the past four years and am no stranger to home office necessities and ergonomic furniture. When the pandemic infiltrated life as we know it, I think it's a fair assumption to say that most of us have been working from home for the better part of a year.
