Apple News:Autodesk dropping support for Alias and VRED in macOS Mojave over OpenGL deprecation

Autodesk dropping support for Alias and VRED in macOS Mojave over OpenGL deprecation: "It isn't clear why Autodesk made the declaration that OpenGL's deprecation was responsible for the applications not working in Mojave. Deprecation does not mean removed, and the existing OpenGL implementation in High Sierra remains in Mojave."

Why would you continue to develop a codebase that has no future on the platform? Nothing says open standards like dropping support for them. I'm glad I spent last summer learning Metal rather than rewriting my OpenGL code for 64-bit. Dodged that bullet.

Apple News:The downfall of Theranos, from the journalist who made it happen | Ars Technica

The downfall of Theranos, from the journalist who made it happen | Ars Technica: "Over the last few years, the failed biomedical startup Theranos has become synonymous with some of the worst aspects of Silicon Valley. Through a combination of hubris, mendacity, and paranoid secrecy, the company fooled investors and the press into thinking it had created a nearly magical medical tricorder, earning a "unicorn" valuation of $9 billion before the whole endeavor was revealed to be smoke and mirrors."

Did you buy the vapor?

Stop panicking about Apple's rumored switch from Intel to its own chips in the Mac: "A lot has been made about Apple's possible shift to the A-series processor in the Mac starting in 2020 —but this isn't the first time that Apple has convinced a generation to change hardware architectures."

Apple News:Apple is actively working on Macs that replace Intel CPUs | Ars Technica

Apple is actively working on Macs that replace Intel CPUs | Ars Technica: "A new Bloomberg report claims Apple is working on its own CPUs for the Mac, with the intent to ultimately replace the Intel chips in its computers with those it designs in-house."

Lucky for me, my code already runs on more than one processor architecture. ARM32, ARM64, x86, x86-64. Let's call it a tale of two architectures and two widths.
