• Apples köp av Fleetsmith en katastrof för kunder

    Seth Goldin beskriver hur Apples köp av Fleetsmith blivit en total katastrof för Fleetsmiths befintliga kunder:

    All outlets are totally missing the story about Apple’s Fleetsmith acquisition. There’s a huge story here about how Apple killed core functionality, resulting in hundreds of outraged users.

    Användare i MacAdmins Slack-kanal beskriver hur de plötsligt inte kunnat logga in i Fleetsmith och senare fått ett meddelande via e-post att Apple köpt bolaget. De som fungerat som återförsäljare till Fleetsmith har på samma sätt meddelats att deras avtal med Fleetsmith sagts upp med omedelbar verkan. Man undrar ju om det är så här det går till varje gång

    Apple har sällan brytt sig om små och medelstora företagskunder och de visar nu att de fortfarande inte gör det.

  • En samlad, återhållsam beskrivning av USA:s 45:e president

    CNN:

    When you listen to the President, these are the musings of an imbecile. An idiot. And I don’t use those words to name call. I use them because they are the precise words of the English language to describe his behavior. His comportment. His actions. We’ve never seen a level of incompetence, a level of ineptitude so staggering on a daily basis by anybody in the history of the country whose ever been charged with substantial responsibilities.

    It’s just astonishing that this man is president of the United States. The man, the con man, from New York City. Many bankruptcies, failed businesses, a reality show, that branded him as something that he never was. A successful businessman. Well, he’s the President of the United States now, and the man who said he would make the country great again. And he’s brought death, suffering, and economic collapse on truly an epic scale. And let’s be clear.

    This isn’t happening in every country around the world. This place. Our place. Our home. Our country. The United States. We are the epicenter. We are the place where you’re the most likely to die from this disease. We’re the ones with the most shattered economy. And we are because of the fool that sits in the Oval Office behind the Resolute Desk.

    Man kan beskylla CNN för att vara partiska mot Trump. Man kan beskylla CNN för att inte alltid vara superseriösa när det gäller deras rapportering. Men faktum kvarstår: citat ovan kommer från en republikan, Steve Schmidt, som får anses vara en hyfsat tung republikan med många år i partiet.

  • Världens snabbaste superdator bygger på ARM-processorer

    The Verge:

    A Japanese supercomputer has taken the top spot in the biannual Top500 supercomputer speed ranking. Fugaku, a computer in Kobe co-developed by Riken and Fujitsu, makes use of Fujitsu’s 48-core A64FX system-on-chip. It’s the first time a computer based on ARM processors has topped the list.

    Fugaku turned in a Top500 HPL result of 415.5 petaflops, 2.8 times as fast as IBM’s Summit, the nearest competitor. Fugaku also attained top spots in other rankings that test computers on different workloads, including Graph 500, HPL-AI, and HPCG. No previous supercomputer has ever led all four rankings at once.

    Förhoppningsvis kommer inte Apple köra reklam i den här stilen för sina ARM-baserade datorer, men det vore samtidigt lite roligt.

    Inte varje dag ett helt bolag blir “sherlockat” av Apple men nu ligger väl Jamf ganska pyrt till…
