    He y Guys, we need your help. New got this email from Sarah in LA. She's looking for a diamond covered ice cream truck. Let her know in the comments if you can help. Thanks! "Hi, we have seeing the diamond covered ice cream truck around Los Angeles over the past few weeks and trying hard to find it and see if its for rental. The reason it is so impotent to me and one of my Best Friends is that we love its sparkle as it makes us smile but more importantly we would love to see if its for rent for the day or hour for our bdays to just ride around in. Its kind of like a reverse “Make - A-Wish” as we both recovered from brain surgery. My friend, cc above had one 2 years ago and I just finished my 5th and last one and finished radiation last year before Covid so we thought this would be the perfect LIFE bday / holiday present for us this winter amidst these unprecedented times. We also thought it would be good to give back to those less fortunate and donate our time to give bottled water etc to those in need and to just spread good will, inspiration and a smile to those who need it most. If you have any idea who owns it or how to get a hold of that person or company, I would greatly appreciate it. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving."

    This moves to PC and it'll kill the huge heat sink, liquid cooling, and large power supply industries, not to mention it'll make Intel realize there's a new bully on the playground and they pissed him off in the past. Now is your chance AMD better get started on that new architecture, Intel will spend too much time denying there's a problem. Actually this may just signal a whole new dynamic in custom built gaming pcs, smaller cases, smaller motherboards, smaller power supplies. Less ram needed for gaming? Apple will of course ream everyone on the price, the other processor companies need to step up to the plate and do some competing, we've seen how Apple operates.

    I don't care if Android needs a 7000 mAh or if I have to deploy solar sails and use a hand crank to recharge the battery on it, I'd still take my Android over the Apple anyway. The god complex that Apple has with the world and with its users is unforgivable. Slowing down people's "old" Iphones through software updates and not telling the users about it... until.. until they get busted and have to own up to it. Even they they try to pass it off as them trying to "preserve" the user experience is pure bullshit ! And now, my understanding, the latest Mac's and their software allows user information, app usage, locations, etc to be passed to Apple basically over unsecured communication lines - AND - there is no way for the users to bypass this or OPT out of it. They have even developed into the software the ability to bypass a VPN if you are using one. This company has no morals and no corporate ethics what so ever. No Thank You.

    What do you think Apple's high-end desktop chips will look like? A lot of the performance and efficiency of this M1 chip comes from the on-package memory. Having ultra fast, low power memory on-package not only means data can be accessed much faster but it also requires a lot less power to do this compared to normal DIMMs of DDR4, the only issue is it's relatively expensive, especially when you need a lot. I think the entire Apple performance philosophy will rely on this design, so I could see there being a 32GB, 64GB and 128GB version of the CPUs for the high end desktops. Although at $200 per 8GB that would mean a 128GB chip would cost $3200 in RAM alone and that's using the much cheaper DDR4L when I believe they might (should) move to HBM. There is a chance they will still max out at 16GB or maybe up to 32GB of on-package memory, then rely on having a secondary slower 'normal' RAM option, maybe DDR5 depending when these come out, that can be configured to huge capacities at slightly more palatable prices. But my money would be on Apple producing a monster chip (similar in design to the Fujitsu A64FX chip) with something like 128GB of ultra fast HBM, 8 layers giving around 4TB/s of bandwidth, to be used as the unified memory for the whole chip which is then directly connected to a PCIE 5 'hyper-drive' SSD over 16 or more lanes. These could actually be very fast, offering up to 128GB/s on PCIE-5 (over 16 lanes). Also PCIE-6 isn't that far off, probably 2023 which doubles this again to 256GB/s. These speeds are actually faster than 8 channels of fast DDR4 and you can make these drives much larger and cheaper! We really could see the death of normal DDR memory on DIMM with a move to ultra fast on-die / on-package system memory plus ultra fast SSDs. Latency might be an issue but a small price to pay for the overall massive performance boost we would see from a shift to system designs like this. As ever the main enemy on monster chips is heat but ARM architectures have a massive advantage here over x86 plus switching to HBM rather than DDR will help a fair bit too. I could see the top end Mac Pro Chip in 2021 looking something like this: 32 core CPU (all high performance Firestorm cores) 128 core GPU 128 core Neural Engine 128GB HBM Built on TSMC's 5nm+ (it's too early for 4nm or 3nm) Price: ~$15-20k

    the fan didn't run because they're now using the AMD CPU not and Intel. Also, AMD CPU don't consume as much battery because they don't produce as much heat. I'm still sceptical. Maybe because I am another tech youtuber who looks at the numbers. I think majority of people don't and apple could easily sell to them. They might be good but I don't think performance to price ratio could ever be justified for apple products. Until I don't get some free Apple products, I won't know 😎
