Presumably it'll replace the higher end 13" Macbook Pro, so it'll probably be around the same price (look it up, but I think it's $1700?). The current M1 replaced the low end 13" MBP and kept the same price.

I need to buy a mainframe. I don't know how to do this. I called IBM and after like three hours they seriously quoted me at $100k.

Convince me that macOS is not the perfect OS and why I should switch to Genpoo right now.

It's a common knowledge that Windows is for gaymers and/or shittier .NET programmers.

Unix is to get shit done.

But what can your shitty loonix anime riced desktop do that macOS can't?

Let's suppose you had to cut off some of those handy grounding prongs on your I/O shield, only to learn afterwards that they were there for grounding the ports.
How would you rig your own grounding? Taping a wire from port to shield maybe?

I run a very small scale web shop. I wrote the entire site myself from scratch in a text editor using only HTML and CSS and copied over a few code snippets from PayPal to create "Add to cart" and "Manage cart" buttons.If you need a more robust solution, there are many open source shopping cart plugins available, and then you just have to provide your merchant account details to process the payments.

AMOGUS?

I want to teach my grandmother how to use a computer starting from 0 but she's quite bad with "show and tell" teaching and I'm sure she'd much rather have a written resource to guide her. Do you guys have any recommendations? Sorry if this thread doesn't fit here.

>>80394965
you might have to write it up in your own words so she would catch the meaning
>>
Hey anon,

A lot of individual applications have written guides in documentation for doing each thing, some even have pictures and shit.

Unless your grandmas doing something out of the usual, you could also write your own guides or whatever.

What is she emailing, face booking and maybe printing?
>>
>>80394991
Ideally I'd like to teach her, or rather be taught to her, basic desktop maintenance and terminology than just practical knowledge.

>>80394981
A bit too simple for my tastes but I'll try it out.

All """encrypted""" email services are a scam. There is no way for you to verify that they actually honor their claims and store the emails in an encrypted form.

The only way to ensure that third parties can't read your emails is, as usual, by using end to end encryption with PGP or something similar. You must encrypt your messages *before* they are sent on the wire.

Email uses SMTP, a base64 encoded plain-text protocol. Your shit can be easily read.

i'd rather something better than mainstream mail providers though. also, here's some pretty decent proof tutanota is encrypted: https://www.hackread.com/encrypted-email-provider-tutanota-backdoor-service/

why would they go out of their way to fight this in court if it wasn't actually encrypted?
