> You really need to get a hackintosh

No I don't. I either need Apple to get its head out of its ass, or to vote with my dollars and buy something I'd actually use. Going out of my way to support Apple's OS, which they barely support on their own hardware, and to circumvent their random SMC half-assed secure boot nonsense is doing extra work that I don't need to be doing.

But even still, Apple's never going to learn that lesson because Apple doesn't sell PCs anymore. They sell shitty appliances that break and go out of date every year, because they know you'll just keep coming back to them for more.

These days phone chips have TDPs running around 8-10W, like Exynos 5250's 8W max TDP. If you look at perf/watt at the top end, Intel's chips are still very securely in the lead.

Yeah, the ARM chips can still clock down way lower, but throwing around numbers like 0.2W max is just being disingenuous.

How is it that every time someone talks about electric cars cost, they always neglect the sales incentives - federal tax credits, state tax credits, etc. No, they just go by raw numbers, which are intentionally set where they are to maximize the company's profits in light of said credits existing. Remove those from the price, and the Fiat 500e is roughly $3k more expensive than the regular 500, which shouldn't surprise you since that's about the difference an electric power train costs. Rerun your math and you find it's far easier to break even.

Accidental precedence or not accidental, it is clear that this SCOTUS does not really want to uphold any laws that they disagree with.

It is a corrupt group, almost always by a 5-4 margin.

Sherman Antitrust be damned, the fascists rule.

In their mind, world control is all that matters.

Logic is a systematic method of coming to the wrong conclusion with confidence.
