    You can't even read. It was about putting Linux on Apple's hardware, so it wipes out macos in term of performance.

      This is what I heard, but it seems reality is different

      Apple is facing a proposed federal class action alleging that it records users' mobile activity without their consent and despite privacy...


      Apple records, tracks, collects and monetizes analytics data—including browsing history and activity information — regardless of what safeguards or "privacy settings" consumers undertake to protect their privacy. Even when consumers follow Apple's own instructions and turn off "Allow Apps to Request to Track" and/or "Share [Device] Analytics" on their privacy controls, Apple nevertheless continues to record consumers' app usage, app browsing communications, and personal information in its proprietary Apple apps, including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, Books, and Stocks.
      Apple's latest operating system, macOS Big Sur, uses a new API to constantly send users' data (including how, when, and where a Mac is used) to Apple. This data is transmitted to Apple without encryption, meaning anyone with access to the same network as the Mac can see the information.

      Privacy has come under discussion once again as a latest report shows Apple spying on its users. Apple’s iPhone has always been considered one of the safest phones but the recent report shocked everyone. The report mentions that Apple tracks every more of its users very precisely.


      According to the report, Apple seems to be storing data each time its user taps on the screen. The information included app visits, IDs , ads etc. The researchers tested an iphone with the latest update, iOS 16, also sending packets of data to Apple web addresses.

        Yes, the specs looks like minimum requirements for Electron apps.

          If you just want a non-x86 cpu, then raspberry pi or other * pi would also be a great choice.
          Granted, given the supply chain issue, raspberry pi is more expensive than it should, once the issue is resolved, a 8GB raspberry pi 4B would only cost you ~97 US dollar.

            Just 10 years after Snowdens leaks people seem to have forgotten everything. There is no US company that doesn't spy on it's users. They all work together with agencys and are forced to do so (national security letters, secret courts).
            There is no separation of powers anymore and therefore no democracy. Most crimes that were comitted by US governements/agencys in the past were made "legal" afterwards and those that haven't been are probably still in use anyways.

            Btw instead of celebrating Snowden as a hero he is politically persecuted and the only place in the world where he is "safe" is in russia. If that isn't a sad summary for our western "democracies".

              They're also pisslow and most of their revenue is from phones which has nothing to do with macs, but those same idiots will conveniently ignore this too of course.

                And then benchmark proves the opposite of your moronic beliefs and you resort to "but but... the power usage *cue baby cries*".

                "Slower" means one thing. Nobody gives a shit about your power usage.

                  To call others moron, idiot you need to have credible references that shows you are smarter than others. To do that anonymously, is cowardly, actually idiotic and moronic. Who the f*** are you?

Back in the day, H.264 encoders were external cards (available only for PC, not mac) - Then Intel added QSV, which made H.264 encoding reasonable in 2011. When did Apple add "hardware H.264 encoding" exactly, and in what fashion, given that they were using intel silicon ?
                    Back in the G3 days there was an add-in card that was available for Macs that allowed hardware H264 encoding, that's what I was revering to.

                      In all fairness, all operating systems "spy" on the user, it's just that people refer to the files as "logs".

                      I just finished a degree in Cyber Security and had to complete classes in Digital Forensics for Linux, Mac OS, Windows and Android, and you would be surprised just how much info each OS collects on it's users.
