    Shouldn't the title have been Microsoft, Google and Apple walk into a bar . . . ?

    As far as I know the next version of the Macbook Air is just a rumour. It may not come this year at all.

    As for apple and privacy, I also always held them in pretty high regard, especially compared to Google and Amazon, but now there is this. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/17/technology/apple-china-censorship-data.html

    As much as they pushed back publicly against the US government in the past, this is sadly not their stance in China.

      It's hard to be a publicly traded corporation and not do things that some believe are immoral. And it's impossible to do business in any country and not follow its laws. I have my issues with Apple. But from a privacy perspective, Apple is clearly in the leadership position here compared to its peers.

    It’s just the Google way. They’re not in it for the long haul. They throw it out in there and if if it’s not an instant huge success they’re just kind of ehhh...


    Really? That’s the Google way? Because it seems to have been the Microsoft way as well for the past decade or so. In fact I’d point to ChromeOS and suggest that Google’s track record for sticking with products that aren’t an instant success is much better and more successful than Microsoft’s.
