This is a nice overview of the technologies involved with GraphQL, for anyone who has heard of the technology but isn’t quite sure how it all fits together.
Software + Business
This mirrors my opinions on paying for software pretty well. There’s a place in the world for free apps, and I definitely have passed on apps because of price before. But the apps I’ve used that have had real value to me have almost always been paid, usually these days as an ongoing subscription. The exceptions, like Twitter, tend to come with frustrating downsides that are difficult to disentangle from the free-to-play model.
This seems really promising.
I’m lucky enough to have access to 2 2015 era Macbook Pros (1 for home, 1 for work) and they’re amazing machines. I’m hoping that they both have long lifespans. But I’m increasingly not sure what my next laptop will be whenever I next have a choice. It seems like the laptops since then have lost some things I appreciate about my current laptops (Magsafe charger, HDMI port) and made the keyboard significantly worse, with minimum benefits. I hope that Apple can right this ship.
