imagine working from home like this. I’ve worked from home for 10 years, but my employer trusts me to do my job. If you don’t have trust, what’s the point washingtonpost.com/technolog…

Halo Infinite PC performance seems greatly improved since the last tech preview. Getting solid framerates at 1440p and it seems to remember my settings / key binds 👍

Microsoft tells me the original Surface Duo will get Android 11 before the end of the year. It's not clear when it will get Android 12, though. Details: theverge.com/2021/9/23/22690…

Apple can just move to a portless iPhone instead. "A spokesperson for the Commission has confirmed to The Verge that if a device charges only wirelessly, then there is no requirement to integrate a USB-C charging port." theverge.com/2021/9/23/22689…

Today's EU news doesn't mean Apple HAS to switch to USB-C on future iPhones. The EU’s USB-C proposal might give us a portless iPhone instead theverge.com/2021/9/23/22689…

I wish Microsoft made an Xbox or Surface gaming laptop. The Surface Laptop Studio comes so close to being a great gaming laptop, but it only has an RTX 3050 Ti. I look back at the history of Surface getting excruciatingly close to being good for PC gaming: theverge.com/22689352/micros…
