Original and proudly opinionated perspectives for Generation T

  1. During my ongoing quest to find the crème de la crème of productivity and time management hacks, I’ve discovered and experimented with a variety of techniques. Some of these approaches have been little-known secrets hoarded by successful people. Distinct pathways have been discussed so much that at this point — they should be common knowledge. What I’ve noticed, however, is that there is no such thing as a one-size fits all approach to anything. What works for one entrepreneur doesn’t guarantee that it will work for you. I’m a big fan of Tim Ferriss. But, plenty of business owners don’t…

  2. Apple has made a key change to how it handles keyboard repairs with MacBook and MacBook Pro models, so you’ll be able to get your laptop fixed in roughly 24 hours from the time you bring it into the store. So if you’ve been living with faulty keys for fear of having to give up your computer for a bit, now’s a good time to get that sorted. According to an internal memo sent to Apple Store employees and obtained by MacRumors, the iPhone maker has revamped its repair process so as to be able to fix keyboard-related problems in-store,…

  3. Intel today unveiled its latest set of mobile processors, introducing its 9th-generation architecture to laptops and tablets. As we saw with the desktop version back in October, it should provide a decent performance boost. Tthe company introduced the first consumer chip to reach 5 GHz back then, and now it’s doing the same for laptops. This speedster is the flagship 9980HK, which is able to ramp up to that 5GHz speed from a 2.4GHz base clock. Intel says it can provide “up to 18 percent higher fps” in games compared to last year’s flagship 8950HK, or 28 percent faster 4K video…

  4. Games make the perfect teaching environment for developers to train machine learning models in, but which game produces the strongest AI? You can put your money on DeepMind’s AlphaGo or OpenAI’s DotA 2-playing machine, but we’ll take whichever one is the first to master Magic: The Gathering – humanity’s hardest game. A trio of scientists led by independent researcher Alex Churchill recently published research in pre-print archive arXiv that appears to establish that Magic: The Gathering, a collectible card game, is “the most computationally complex real-world game known” in scientific literature. While anyone whose ever tried to casually get into tournament Magic…

  5. Of all the things I expected to see and hear when playing the newest entry in the Mortal Kombat series — and, given this series’ reputation, I was expecting the most — sly digs at American president #45 were pretty low on the list. But developer Netherrealm Studios delivered, and they didn’t do it subtly. I got an early promo code for Mortal Kombat 11 and have been playing it over the weekend, enjoying the new characters and the old favorites. To set the scene, the combatants (oh, sorry, “Kombatants”) in the match where this happened are Jackson “Jax” Briggs, an American Special Forces soldier,…
