That built-in part of my routine

Apple updates new MacBook Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini with Apple’s M1 processors

Apple’s breakup with Intel marks a significant shift for Apple and the tech industry, but less of a big deal for consumers in the short run. The new computers hardly look different at all, though they promise improvements in battery life and speed, in certain circumstances.

Apple’s shift to its own processors, first announced in June, opens new possibilities for Apple’s computers, which otherwise haven’t changed much in recent years. Apple’s M1 processors use a

Many Shoppers Now Want Zero In-Store Human Interaction | Trends

By Jack M. Germain

Nov 10, 2020 5:00 AM PT

The rise in consumer adoption of e-commerce in the wake of the pandemic is pushing the rebirth of brick-and-mortar stores as potential bastions of interactionless in-store shopping that resembles an e-commerce experience.
