This is first time crypto currency is employed to track uninsured patients who do not have health record documents. I already bought $100000 worth of BSV coin as the future technology to rule America..

  • so actually i know what i am saying is actually late, buh i'm going to say it anyways. So what i think apple is trying to achieve with this is maybe they might combine the ipad and mcbooks with the M1 chips. What am trying to say is that maybe in the next gen macbooks with the M1 chips you might be able to remove the screens so it becomes just like an Ipad buh then its also a laptop at the same time, so all you have to do is place the screen back then it becomes your laptop. I'm just saying ... no judgement.

  • HI Marques, All the youtubers are hiding from the m1 ssd wear issue with kerneltask running like a stopwatch. Everyone loves the word swap but the real issue is what is writing to the ssd constantly. Hoping on if the ssd can take a daily nuclear assault. This is on the 16gb version. Why kerneltask writing to ssd right after boot process? I think all the people that hyped the m1 should have the same hype on this issue. Thanks for your videos but you owe us a comment on this !

  • Jobs would have never switched from the mainstream processor market again; apple has been there before with the PPC and doing so again will not end well. Intel macs will be dead in the water within a year or so, leaving many users feeling angry and disenfranchised. Once Intel release their next M1 killer, which of course they will, apple users will once again be relegated to the computing underclass. With Jobs gone, it was only a matter of time before apple went back to making the same old mistakes.

  • There are some people who use Android phones and say iPhones "suck" because they have like 2-4 gigs of RAM and sub-3000 mAh batteries, their justification to this is that they say: "Imagine these specs on a regular Android phone, they would suck," those people only follow specs and don't use the phone in the real-world, and those people don't know that iPhone components work very differently to Android components, they say: "How can they work differently, they are both just pieces of silicon that don't do anything other than make you use the phone" Well, Apple designs the parts and software that powers iPhones, so they can make the parts inside your iPhone work much more efficiently than if you design the phone but purchased the CPU from Qualcomm and didn't design it yourself, and purchased the software from Google instead of designing it yourself. That is my answer to the "How iPhone and Android phone parts work differently?" question for those only spec-focused people who asked it.

This port is so amazing that you can only by plugging external monitor that supports usb c thunderbolt you can plug the mouse, K/B & headset to the external monitor!!

  • I have owned the MBA m1 base since it was released to the public for purchase. What intrigued me about the m1 version, is that I viewed the chipset as what is in their iPad and iPhone, both of those devices both are run by chips that are designed by Apple and both those devices run awesomely. Both of those devices operate so well and efficiently than I have in the past tried to use the iPad as my EDC but fell short because the apps for the iPad are not as full-featured as their desktop counterparts; So really the only thing missing was the waiting for Apple to finally release a laptop with their own chipset. Since owning the MBA m1 base, I use the computer for everything from work to personal use. The Apple chipset runs everything more efficiently which allows me to have more apps and Chrome Windows open at a time that the device never gets bogged down or overheats when working on the MBA for long periods of time. I now do not have a reason anymore to own an iPad because my Mac just runs as efficiently if not better than the iPad. macOS, to me, feels more like it's more portable breatharian iOS. For an everyday user like myself, the base model is now the way to go. It uses to be that the base model always left you guessing if you should have gone for the next tier up. For me, all those second questions are answered in a definite no. Great Video as always I have been using the MBA M1 as my EDC device for work since the device was released to the public. The highlights for me about this device are 1) It's Fast. So to start off, I do not use the device for anything too labor-intensive. I primarily use Chrome and have about 11 tabs open, and the apps outside of Chrome I use are Microsoft and sometimes Polaar as my photo editor. 2) The memory management, when owning Intel-based laptops, the Ram would be enough but there would be more times where 8GB was not enough. The MBA M1 on the other hand, I never run out of space. The device always flutters around 4.5GB to maybe 5GB on occasion. 3) The MBA M1 feels like an iPad to me, I am not sure why, but I use it I feel like an iPad in how I use it. I rely more on apps than I do on the desktop itself. it's weird. Now I may be wrong in how I have labeled things in this response but still after all this time owning it, the Device has not failed me and it runs crispier than the Surface Pro 7, Surface Laptop 3, and the Surface Laptop Go. It is the first laptop that I have owned where I am definitely not bored with it. So in hine site, if you use a device like a Chromebook and only need Microsoft Apps, this is the best device for you.
