Can Facebook really create a global community?

Historian Yuval Noah Harari disputes Mark Zuckerberg’s vision

If something exciting happens, the gut instinct of Facebook true-believers is to draw their smartphones, take a picture, post it online, and wait for the “likes”. In the process they hardly pay attention to what they actually feel. Indeed, what they feel is increasingly determined by the online reactions rather than by the actual experience.

"Feelings" replaced by "likes" concerns me?

Nvidia MacBook....At this point in time USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports on latest laptops allow attaching an external Nvidia GPU for intensive compute tasks such as video rendering or machine learning. See this video for tips. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvAB3U5umug

Note USB-C type 3 Thunderbolt is more associated with Intel i5 and i7 CPUs. Intel i3 often come with just USB-C without Thunderbolt (do your research here, it may evolve).

After returning a new MacBook 2016 13" last December, I used a Chromebook Pixel with Ubuntu 14:04 LTS via Crouton, and did a lot more research on reasonable MacBook alternatives. I was dispointed with the polish on Ubuntu, applications like Sublime did not work without hacks. So personally I could only come up with the Dell XPS 13 running Ubuntu 16:04 (Google "Dell Sputnik" to find this for sale). Then in mid-January Best Buy had a two day sale with $225 off the new 2016 MacBook 13". So I picked one up for $1249.

+Brett Slatkin has well researched a short list of reasonable Macbook alternatives. http://www.onebigfluke.com/2016/10/alternatives-to-apple-computers.html
