    As a proper professional application, iPads are a major game changer in the construction industry. - Sketching designs. - Powerful enough to run and display complex 3D models. - Photopgraphing of project sites. - Measuring existing buildings with the LIDAR. - Having digital construction drawings, and 3D models easily accessible on site. It can assistant in almost all aspects of the construction process.

    Also, Apple doesn't recycle basically anything of their products. Even if you ignore the extremely idiotic practice of soldering the SSD, RAM, and everything else to the motherboard. The companies in charge of doing the "recycling" for Apple have said themselves just how much of the device is outright shredded just because Apple wants to pretend to be in support of people's privacy and not have to invest in infrastructure where someone might reuse the device instead of buying a brand new or refurb one.

  • ShroudedWolf51

    Oh, boy. PIA. The company whose product, the last few months before my license expired, was being picked up by MBAM as doing sketchy shit on my network. Don't advertise them. They sold their dignity over a year ago, when they sold and their product is questionable at best at this point.

    Linus saying the new iMac doesn’t have Ethernet or Luke saying he would never buy a tablet is why this channel gets so much sheet for how they cover apple.

You pay alot for the minimal hardware. - When does the new stock of graphic card comes out? - Do you think the market will crash soon? - How the game producer for big company holding up under these times? - Can we get more of Anthony of his Retro stuff? I'think you and your teams are great!! Keep it up. Greetings from Norway.

    All I heard during your Mac topic was: massively overpriced, unrepairable, cannot play PC games on it. I do not know why anyone buys Apple products. Not to mention they go out of their way to screw their customers over with their peripherals. Why not just buy an Acer laptop for a fraction of the price. Even though the quality is going to be lower, it will last just as long as an Apple product due to Apple's forced obsolescence. Not to mention, who gives a fuck about Thunderbolt when a standard Linux/Windows laptop has a ton of USB ports? Also, why the fuck would you buy an iPad to play games when you can just spool up an iOS VM?

    iPad Pro would be KILLER if they allowed it to run full MacOS when docked. I have been die=hard Windows/anti-Apple since the original Mac, but the M1 has me rethinking my position on this. I anxiously await the next chips from Apple, it will be REALLY interesting seeing what they can do on a Mac Pro with, say, the M2.

    11:38 It's the same with high refreshrate displays. When I say the words "display refreshrate" to my friends and family, they go: "What?" Exactly. And that is why Apple don't do it, because they know most don't know of the existense of that concept.

    Good on Based Luke to keep things in a budget and realistic. I'm sure if everyone has USD $900+ burning a hole in their pockets they would jump on the M1 iPad (I know I would), but some of us have a budget, and gotta, you know, eat and pay bills, and fix cars, and other stuff. If I'm spending $900 right now, it's going into my car, that's just reality for me rn.

    It would be good if Luke did use an iPad, then maybe he'd realise how trash the Floatplane app is on one. The rotation issues, the endless need to log back in (the only app I use that insists I keep logging in so I just use CNboth because FP is too much hassle), and why, why why does it sometimes just show the spinner the entire time a video streams?!? I mean it doesn't need to be the new Pro but if the Floatplane crew could get with the iOS/iPadOS thing that would be good.

    My Tablet PC is a very important device in my household, I use it everywhere at home to watch youtube etc. in bed after I wake up to start the day and maybe listen to some music, on the toilet, when brushing my teeth, at breakfast, really whenever I'm at multiple places and not at my desk. It's great for reading E-books, Mangas, other stuff that's not always available for E-Ink devices and it fullfills all of my Smartphone/Android needs as well, since I don't have a Smartphone anymore. though I have to admit, ever since I got a touchscreen at my bedside PC, I've seen way less use for my Tablet (also because it is sort of broken atm. and no budget for a new one). 12.9 inches is probably the deal breaker for me though, I really liked the 10.1" upgrade from 8" and previously 7", but now I would just choose a 13.3" 2in1 Laptop instead of a tablet that size, and for my portable tablet setup I do want 8" again to also use for gaming. Yeah okay, scratch that, I don't see the point in the 12.9" Tablet as well... just get a 2in1 Laptop, especially at that price. For 100 or even 500 I would still take it.

    Linus: The new iPad has a a huge, fantastic display and thunderbolt and a freak'n M1! Luke: Yeah, but iPadOS. I definitely agree with Luke there. Those features are all very nice, especially at the price point... but I just have absolutely no use for a tablet with a mobile OS. I'd be much more likely to buy it if they just put macOS on it. But then I might as well get a Mac Book.

    My wife uses the crap out of her iPad, watching stuff while she's folding clothes or cooking, but then plays casual games. Portable email, skype to family. She easily uses that thing 8-10 hours a day, or has it with her around the house. She doesn't need/want a full blown OS like MacOS, but I hope it becomes an option, I have a Surface Pro that I use like 2x a week when taking my desktop isn't an option, give me my desktop for daily driving ;-)
