Re: Need help with chinese IP camera security

Fortunately the SSID broadcast is disabled when the ethernet cable is connected but the whole point of this camera is simple remote surveillance and wireless connectivity. Why the chinese thought it's a good idea to leave out wireless security is beyond me. It ruined this product completely. There …

I doubt any applications that will be ported to ARM are going to run on PPC Macs anyway, since they're stuck with a …

Jo22 wrote on 2020-07-08, 16:16: Yes, maybe this is true. That's as if an airplane company stops making engines for planes because the market for cars is so much bigger. The difference is that airplane engines are high margin compared to car engines, but ARM CPUs are low margin compared to x86 CPUs …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

Ok, please let me rephrase what I wrote. ARM became (now: was) the primary architecture of the Handheld and Pocket PC platforms which ran Windows CE. Originally, in the late 90s, there were three architectures which were supported by Win CE - SH3, MIPS and ARM. These were still supported on the " …

On top of that, contrary to the popular belief, I don't think the eventual demise of x86 is a death sentence to Intel. The company has other profit-churning 'sectors' to milk all they want, and it's just x86 boys, like me, are the ones who get screwed. Well, x86 still accounts for about 75% of …

Any indication if they will separately from ARM as well? Technically they don't make their own cpus for mobile either, they are licensed tech from ARM. There are two types of ARM licenses - core level and architecture level. Core level license gives you rights to ARM core designs (such as Cortex …

I noticed an interesting thing in the Metal section of Apple's developer website: Filename Screenshot 2020-07-02 at 21.05.36.png File size 52.62 KiB Views 423 views I think this is the first time they have actually done something useful to encourage porting of games to their platforms.

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

FWIW, I sometimes use my 2017 iPad Pro to edit photos in Lightroom CC and edit videos in LumaFusion, and performance in both is impressive. In fact, I have never seen Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC this fast on any desktop. I apply an edit and the picture gets rendered instantly in full screen …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

It's been my experience as well that when people have the choice, they tend to prefer the Mac. I've spent 10 years at a company where employees could request either an MBP or a ThinkPad once every 2 years. People coming from Windows-only shops would usually request a ThinkPad at first, but switch to …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

Not to mention this is Apple's first BETA of the OS and a two years old underclocked chip that is nowhere what the actual desktop chip will be... I have always said that the two worst things about Apple are the pro-Apple crowd and the anti-Apple crowd. The pro-Apple crowd can be pretty sickening …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

When IBM decided to go proprietary with PS/2 and MCA, the leading PC clone manufacturers of the day formed the so-called "Gang of Nine" and decided to make their own standards. They were: AST Research, Inc. Compaq Computer Corporation Seiko Epson Corporation Hewlett-Packard Company NEC Corporation …

Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

There was a time in 2016-2017 when I felt that Apple was going to let the Mac wither on the vine. Basically every single Mac they were selling at the time was either hopelessly outdated (Mac mini, MacBook Air), hopelessly broken (MacBook Pro) or both (Mac Pro). I may be unhappy with this transition …
