This is an incredibly well written piece on written piece taking on an almost archetypical straw man.

The Elizabeth Stone House is one of the most concrete ways we can help women in some of the most need in our community. Please look at their mission, and if you can spare some support, help them reach their funding goals to build a new facility.

Thanks,

Startlingly bad journalism here. Intel is running 14nm architecture chips and moving to 10nm. The next best in the game are just now moving to 16 nm chips. While that alone isn't startling, the fact that The Verge thinks benchmarks off of any apple product are up to date is. Comparing a cell phone chip to Apple's top of the line desktop is still using three year old technology, and a mediocre version of it at that.

Intel's newest high end chipsets are running at nearly twice the clock speed at almost double the processing units of even the dual cpu units that the 'top end' macs hold. Their slightly more consumer grade chips are easily hitting twice the clock speed, using newer ultra-fast buses, interfacing with faster, better memory, and ome with on-board GPU's capable of running 4k without lag for normal applications, at power levels low enough to run for hours even on a moderate battery.

Meanwhile, an iPhone with its closed garden manages to come close to years old intel tech on the single benchmark even possible on the system and intel should be worried? No.

This isn't to say Apple shouldn't worry intel, but what should worry them is that a company producing perpetually obsolete products at such high prices holds such a command of the market. Intel handily wins at their own game, but what they really need is some new game, and that will take some work that The Verge probably won't cover.

I started a petition! Sign it! Share it! Even both!

I think the GOP thought their presidential nominee was a Red Herring, but he turned out to be a White Elephant.

"Although it was certainly a handsome and well-built example of its species, it was none the less a perfectly ordinary horse, such as convergent evolution has produced in many of the places that life is to be found. They have always understood a great deal more than they let on. It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them.
On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever." - Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective agency

A nice gem of the mindset of an experimental physicist during the golden age of physics, with a lot bits nice
