AWS brings the Mac mini to its cloud

AWS today opened its re:Invent conference with a surprise announcement: the company is bringing the Mac mini to its cloud. These new EC2 Mac instances, as AWS calls them, are now available in preview. They won’t come cheap, though. The target audience here — and the only one AWS is targeting for now — is developers who want cloud-based build and testing environments for their Mac and iOS apps. But it’s worth noting that with remote access, you get a fully-featured Mac mini in the cloud, and I’m ...

November linkfest

It’s Word of the Year season, and two British dictionaries are leading the pack. Collins picked lockdown – a word we threw around here in the US but never experienced the way they did in the UK and elsewhere. (A friend of mine is literally confined to her London apartment after spending a month in France: she can’t go outdoors at all.) And Oxford Languages, publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, chose a phenomenon instead of a single word: the impact of the COVID-19 on language. “What struck the...

Yeah, Apple’s M1 MacBook Pro is powerful, but it’s the battery life that will blow you away

Survival and strategy games are often played in stages. You have the early game where you’re learning the ropes, understanding systems. Then you have mid-game where you’re executing and gathering resources. The most fun part, for me, has always been the late mid-game where you’re in full control of your powers and skills and you’ve got resources to burn — where you execute on your master plan before the endgame gets hairy. This is where Apple is in the game of power being played by the chip i...

Timex’s Snoopy Watch Put Everyone’s Favorite Beagle on Wrists Across America

The year 1976 suffered no shortage of historical events.

No, Sean Connery Did Not Write a Mean Letter To Steve Jobs

A fake letter from Sean Connery to Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is making the rounds on social media following the actor's death on Saturday.

How mentally strong people use simplicity to set themselves up for professional and personal success

Overexerting yourself at work can often take a toll on your mental health.

Building the Amazon Way: How Amazon builds and markets products

  Founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos, Amazon was initially an online marketplace for books when Jeff Bezos came up with the idea of the ‘everything store’, having been overwhelmed by the  Internet’s 2300 percent annual growth rate and the $10 billion book industry. Today, Amazon is one of the world’s most valuable brands in the world owing to its highly successful business model. The question is–How did Amazon build to conquer the e-commerce market?

Apple TV Remote App Inspired Steve Jobs to Make Original Siri Remote (mac rumors)

"Anything I go into — producing, rap, homes, clothing, anything — once I'm given the right information, I apply my taste. And I have the best taste on the planet."

"It was something that God put in my heart back in 2015. A few days before the MTV awards it hit me in the shower. When I first thought of it, I just started laughing to myself and all this joy came over my body, through my soul. I felt that energy and spirit. Two days later, I accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Awards. Instead of performing my array of hit songs, I gave just my perspective on awards shows.... It even took heart to say it in that context and people were...

Personal Branding On Social Media: It’s All About Archetypes

This post is provided by Jason Dirkham. The world is a very different place from what it was six months ago. Back at the start of the year, we were all enjoying ourselves pretty much without a care in the world. But things have changed, and the current situation is turning us all into unwilling entrepreneurs. We know that if we’re going to thrive in the current job market, we have to somehow set ourselves apart from everyone else.  That’s why personal branding using social media is boomin...

UgoVirtual on the Future of Events and How Technology Can Help Us Be Everywhere at Once | By Alan Young

Lakers, LeBron James enjoy the view from the top

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — From the top, the view is clearer. LeBron James had the vantage point of a champion late on Sunday night, and he seemed reflective in between puffs of his cigar. With 17 years of his career under his belt, so much of what he says can feel rehearsed. But from his spot on stage, minutes after cradling the Larry O’Brien trophy and the Finals MVP award in each hand, a well-practiced champion had a moment to think about what he had never done before. Were any of his other cha...
