Apple has declared obsolete a new batch of its devices. The 2015 and 2016 MacBooks, MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros, and iMacs fall into the “legacy” category.

Apple deprecates nine devices at once, including the first MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

By “obsolete” Apple means products that were no longer available for sale more than 5 years ago and less than 7 years ago. For them, repairs are still offered if the necessary spare parts are available.

As such, the first MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar are now classified as obsolete. Apple introduced the Touch Bar in October 2016 as part of a complete overhaul of the MacBook Pro. Apple has since removed the Touch Bar from more expensive MacBook Pro models, but it’s still available on the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 platform.

Full list of Apple devices declared obsolete at the end of July:

  • MacBook (12″ Early 2016)
  • MacBook Air (13″ Early 2015)
  • MacBook Pro (13″ Early 2015)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch 2016 Dual Thunderbolt)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch 2016 Quad Thunderbolt)
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
  • iMac (21.5″ Late 2015)
  • iMac (27″ Retina 5K Late 2015)
  • 9.7″ iPad Pro (2016)

Microsoft spoke about the song that “killed” laptops – back in the days of Windows XP

Microsoft spoke about the song that killed laptops back

A Microsoft representative told the company’s blog a story that happened back in the days of the Windows XP operating system. An unnamed major manufacturer has discovered that some laptop models crash when playing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” music video. The same was observed with laptops from other companies.

Microsoft spoke about the song that

Moreover, the failure occurred not only on the laptop itself, where the song was played, but, sometimes, on neighboring devices in the laboratory. At the same time, the track did not start on them at the time of the failure.

As it turned out, the fault was the music, or rather some audio frequencies in the audio track. They resonated with laptop hard drives that ran at 5400 rpm.

Chen did not specify exactly which frequencies created such interference and which models were affected. But he told how the experts found a solution. The manufacturer added a filter that removed such frequencies if they were found in the audio recording.

And in the comments to the post, one of the users said that the first 9-inch netbooks of one brand faced a similar problem. In the model that was equipped with a hard drive, almost any loud music would resonate with the drive and could lead to data corruption or even drive failure. But here the problem was in the design of the case – the right speaker was located almost close to the disk.

At the same time, the manufacturer did not acknowledge the existence of a problem, but users found a solution – move the balance slider in the player all the way to the left so that the right speaker simply does not produce sound.

We are talking about the HyperJuice 245 W GaN Desktop Charger and the HyperJuice 245 W USB-C Battery Pack. As the name suggests, both devices deliver 245W of power. For example, in the case of a battery, this power allows you to simultaneously charge four MacBook Pros that consume 61 watts each. The maximum power per USB port is 100W. The Battery Pack has a capacity of 27,000 mAh, which is enough to charge a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air up to two times or an iPhone 13 nine times.

The HyperJuice 245 W GaN Desktop Charger is identical in parameters to the battery, except without the battery. At the same time, using this charger, the same HyperJuice 245 W USB-C Battery Pack can be charged in just an hour.
