    I'm surprised you are the second one that didn't get the joke.
    You mean that it's an Apple product and they don't play games?

    You mean OG Halo from like 20 years ago? I'm surprised that it works.

    Yeah there are some serious blunders of industrial design that Jony was not prone to. I think Jony's iPhones (pre notch) were quite good, except they went downhill as the screens got bigger and more disproportionately tall, and needlessly thin (though these are trends that pervade the smartphone industry, and women and girls seem especially to love huge phones, make up a supermajority of iPhone customers and people making purchasing decisions for iPhones).

    Imagine how good an iPhone 4S shaped, iPhone 5C looking android phone could be today; batteries would be literally more than twice as large as today, you could reach every corner of the screen with one hand, and you would be more likely to use it for work and social connection, rather than moral degeneration and procrastination, and with one-hand operation you would complete tasks faster and put it away sooner.

    Good riddance. The man was a menace to functionality.
    I know about that. I also know that new mpb's for example have returned the traditional connectors unlike before, when it only had USB C's. But I'm talking purely from an aesthetic point of view. They're butt ugly. Apart from the notch, I hate that light grey color and the body also looks much bulkier than before because it now uses stands at the bottom.
    Oh, and don't forget the new M1 iMacs with their white frames and the most childish color selection possible.

    Rust have really proven itself with this project. Apart from the integrity/stability of the code once it compiles I've also noticed that error handling code is much simpler and cleaner.

    For me the 14" M1 MBP is the best laptop Apple has ever made. The notch is a non issue when running macOS and you still get a 16:10 screen below the menubar/notch. The display is simply stunning and the laptop itself is really solidly built while being both fast as hell and cool as ice. Blows my ThinkPad X1C10 out of the water in every aspect except for running x86 Debian. … and the X1 is a great laptop too.

    Very impressive progress. This is one of those projects I assumed was going to die as soon as it could boot up a CLI (as is the case with most hardware that gets no official manufacturer support) but for the relatively small team of people reverse-engineering, I'm really surprised how far they've come.
