Apple’s MacBook problem was a confusing array of similar machines with different names, different chips, different hardware and the rest. But maybe the problem has finally been solved. With the rumored 15-inch MacBook Air coming out months ago, Apple surprised us by releasing two MacBook Pro revisions – notably in less than twelve months – to showcase the company’s most powerful chips yet. These new M3-equipped MacBook Pro 14- and 16-inch are a clearer sign of Apple’s direction.
The company has gotten rid of the long-suffering 13-inch MacBook Pro, doing away with the outdated design and divisive, frustrating Touch Bar in one fell swoop. These Pro machines – especially the M3 Max models – are great for professionals, and the MacBook Airs are for everyone.
I think Apple’s laptop lineup finally makes sense for the first time in a long time.

Organizer Yuga Labs is ‘aware of the eye problems.’
So you thought just the idea of attending an NFT event was torturous enough. At least 15 attendees of Yuga Labs’ ApeFest, a celebration of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs (which still exist), may have suffered serious eye injuries. Bloomberg reports that several people who attended the event in Hong Kong last weekend experienced vision problems, which they suspect stem from the event’s stage lighting. Some claim that doctors then diagnosed welder’s eye, a condition caused by excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation. The company is apparently investigating the reports.
Mozilla recently reported that all 25 car brands it reviewed failed privacy tests. While all of them, in Mozilla’s opinion, went too far in their data collection and use policies, some even raised concerns about obtaining highly invasive information.

The company has had a hard time.
A new twist in the WeWork saga this week, as the office space rental company has filed for bankruptcy protection. Following reports last week that the company was expected to file for Chapter 11 protection, shares of WeWork were halted on the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. According to The New York Times, it described its bankruptcy filing as a “comprehensive reorganization” of its business. WeWork has been pushing hard in a real estate market shaken by rising borrowing costs, while also dealing with the pandemic-accelerated shift of millions more people working remotely.
