    With Air and Studio, why does Apple even need a Pro line anymore?

    The tablet market is so bereft of serious alternatives to the iPad that Apple often ends up acting as its own competition.

    WWDC might be hardware-less again this year

    Apple hasn’t revealed new hardware at a WWDC event since the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR made an appearance in 2019, so we were hoping this year would bring a similar sneak peek at the new M2 chip, redesigned MacBook Air, or new Mac Pro.

    I was on an international panel for the World Talent Economy forum earlier this week to discuss the topic of Decent Work and Economic growth. Decent work is a concept not used very much these days; it’s an old concept that focuses on the holistic nature of the employee. From Wikipedia: According to the International Labour […]
