I am a little over 24 hours from being able to punt the client MacBook that is constantly a baffling and frustrating complete disaster to use into the FRIGGIN’ SEA.

(I am an approximately 6 hours from anything resembling a sea, the commute will be worth it.)

“You shut me down… No I shut myself down! ”

Animated screenshot of client Macbook Pro with multiple alerts about shutting down unexpectedly.

I’ve never had a Mac that caused me any troubles, this client laptop is so loaded with unnecessary corporate garbage that it’s constantly freaking out, shutting down, beach balling. After two years I finally get to send it back in a month. 🎉

(I actually like the project/client, but this laptop has been such a beating for so, so long.)

Apple lets you preload so much of the iPhone preorder process, including payment via Apple Card, that it took less than 10 seconds to preorder my new phone and case this morning.

I ordered an iPad mini before Thanksgiving and didn’t get it until mid January. Supply chain issues definitely an impact.

Six Colors: The iPad was Apple's only category not to set a record. After an amazing Q4, sales were down sequentially. Apple warned it was going to lose some iPad sales due to supply chain issues, and that probably hurt it. Still, iPad has had 7 strong quarters in a row.
