Apple reportedly has plans for a thinner iPhone, MacBook Pro and Apple Watch
  • iPhones have been getting thicker year over year since the 11. The 15 is the largest jump in thickness over that period, too. It’s actually pretty reasonable that Apple would seek to return to at least the last prior model’s form factor.

  • Microsoft removes Copilot app ‘incorrectly’ added on Windows PCs
  • 100%

    I was almost convinced when I set up my kid’s new gaming pc and had to spend an hour updating and then debloating the installation and turning off all the advertising and telemetry. Then, a week later I saw an ad for Tik Tok in my own Start Menu. That was what made me finally move over to Linux completely.

    That said, I cannot imagine being on Windows by choice at this point. In 2024 Id rather be on macOS than Windows if forced to choose between the two.

  • Supreme Court, siding with Starbucks, makes it harder for NLRB to win court orders in labor disputes
  • This is a pretty bad headline. SCOTUS held that precedent stands and an already-existing four-prong test must be applied to the NLRB's requests for TRO in such matters.

    It's less a "makes it harder" and more a "allows the current status quo, wherein it is hard to obtain a TRO, to remain."

    EDIT: Of note, the "irreparable harm" standard is well established and quite standard and the decision was unanimous. Opinion here

  • Framework open sources the 3D CAD design files for its modular 16 inch laptop
  • I like the philosophy and approach from them, but I think one of those Tuxedo ARM notebooks will be my next computer purchase. I’ve been jealous of the speed and battery life of people around me with M-Series MacBooks for a few years now, but unwilling to go to the OS and Asahi isn’t there for me yet.

  • Why 1,000 Homicides in St. Louis Remain Unsolved

    In one of America's deadliest cities, police have struggled to solve killings due to staffing shortages, shoddy detective work and lack of community trust.

    Why 1,000 Homicides in St. Louis Remain Unsolved

    > Of the roughly 1,900 homicides committed in the city of St. Louis from 2014 through 2023, more than 1,000 remain unsolved, according to an analysis of homicide data obtained by APM Reports and St. Louis Public Radio.

    > During those years, murders in St. Louis surged, making the city one of the nation's deadliest. For most of the decade, police struggled to bring perpetrators to justice. A review of 20 years of data and records reveals some of the reasons why police failed to solve so many homicides, including shoddy detective work, lack of resources and an erosion of community trust.


    Video from Scott Scheffler's (#1 ranked golfer in the world) arrest. "Right now he's going to jail and there ain't nothing you can do about it"

    Breaking News: World No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler has been detained by police in handcuffs after a misunderstanding with traffic flow led to his attempt to drive past a police officer into Valhalla Golf Club. The police officer attempted to attach himself to Scheffler’s car, and Scheffler then stopped his vehicle at the entrance to Valhalla. The police officer then began to scream at Scheffler to get out of the car. When Scheffler exited the vehicle, the officer shoved Scheffler against the car and immediately placed him in handcuffs. He is now being detained in the back of a police car.

    Chatbot letdown: Hype hits rocky reality

    > Grumbles about generative AI's shortcomings are coalescing into a "trough of disillusionment" after a year and a half of hype about ChatGPT and other bots. Why it matters: AI is still changing the world — but improving and integrating the technology is raising harder and more complex questions than first envisioned, and no chatbot has the magic answers. Driving the news: The hurdles are everything from embarrassing errors, such as extra fingers or Black founding fathers in generated images, to significant concerns about intellectual property infringement, cost, environmental impact and other issues.
