Re: How Apple Just Changed the Entire Industry (related to M1 chipset)

The big win for the M1 appears to be battery life. Which of course is important for mobile users. But if you're desk-based and bought one of the new Intel-based Mac Pros earlier this year I don't see any reason to regret that choice. Katherine Not just battery life, but lower heat output especially...

Re: How Apple Just Changed the Entire Industry (related to M1 chipset)

Let's not fall for the marketing hype. PC manufacturers have been putting faster and more efficient chips in their laptops for several decades now. Someone always has the fastest, somewhere -until the next razzmatazz launch. But feel free to throw money at them. Shareholders love it. :P ARM licence...

Re: Apple M1 Processor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuF9weSkS68 I saw this video about the M1 chipset the day after I received my new 2020 MBP 16" and promptly returned it for a refund. The Apple support person told me I was not the first to do so. (-: They also said that that the M1 chipset was currently only ava...

O Fortuna (-:

To appreciate the humor of this you have to first hear the original version which is very serious and philosophical.

Then listen to the funny version with the Misheard Lyrics

How to change the font used for footnotes and comments?

I have one font for body text and somehow I have a different font for footnotes and comments. How do I change it so that when I make a comment or footnote it is the same as my body font or whatever font I want it to be? Couldn't find it in preferences.

Re: What are the best tools for annotating and then extracting notes from PDFs for academic writing

Skim is great if you’re primarily working on a Mac as it uses its own annotations that predate native support for PDF annotations on Mac OS X. I’ve used it since 2005 or so. There’s a command line tool and robust AppleScript support to automate note conversion, extracting of notes, etc. Lately I’ve...

Re: Convert Handwritten Text Into Digital on iPad

After spending the last 6-7 hours researching this it seems that all the handwriting to text software out there (including Notability ) licensed the engine from MyScript the makers of Nebo . So I figured that Nebo must be doing something right. For demos of what Nebo can do watch these short videos....
