Apple News:...learning from Bridget Riley’s prints
This handsome book documenting Bridget Riley’s prints over nearly 60 years is the revised and expanded edition of a catalogue raisonné, last published in 2012. It is therefore the definitive source for her prints. Each print has been assigned a catalogue number, and a concordance at the back of the book aligns this new system with Karsten Schubert’s previous numbering of the prints, which he compiled for Bridget Riley: Complete Prints 1962–2012 (editions one to four). But it is the overall presentation of this new edition, plus an additional essay by art historian Robert Kudielka, which brings it into line with The Complete Paintings 1946–2017, a five-volume set published in 2018. Together, these six volumes are a testament to the unremitting combination of passion and rigorous critique that has driven Riley’s work over the last seven decades.

Apple News:Calliope Mori is not her real name
Calliope Mori is, of course, not her real name. And the anime-style avatar she dons while rapping and drinking wine on stream is not what she really looks like. But the audience is real, and their money was withdrawn from actual banking and credit accounts. Vtubers have splashed down on the Western internet, and in 2020, everybody’s feeling the waves.

Apple News:EU supports Right to Repair
The European Parliament on Wednesday voted to support the right of consumers to repair their own phones, tablets, laptops and other devices without going through the companies that produced them.
Let's be clear: we love our older macs and we want to keep them healthy. Kind of difficult if Apple won't service them nor let Apple-authorized service centers fix them either.
Apple News:Apple Silicon M1 Screams Faster, Faster, Kill, Kill!
All three are equally impressive, but it’s the Air in particular that stands out as offering incredible power at its price point. I’m also impressed with battery life. And the fact that Apple’s Rosetta 2 translation layer doesn’t cause slowdown or bugs for legacy apps.
We concur that the new M1 Air is blazingly fast. The M1 Google Chrome runs faster on the Air than it does on the 2019 16" MacBook Pro. We're not sure if we're happy about that, but whatevs!
