People over 45 have almost no interest in the iPhone. A similar situation with the iPad and Mac, according to a recent study by CIRP
The CIRP researchers decided to evaluate the impact of users’ age on their desire to buy Apple products. It turned out that age plays a very significant role.
Analysts evaluated the age division for iPhone, iPad and Mac. We will only analyze the iPhone in detail, although, as you can see from the diagram, the overall situation is very similar.
So, it is perfectly clear that the iPhone first of all attracts quite young users. Half of all Apple smartphone owners are between the ages of 18 and 34. Also a large layer – users aged 35 to 44 years. Actually, these are three approximately the same groups, which together account for almost three-quarters of all iPhone owners.
But older users are rapidly losing interest in the iPhone. Actually, to Mac and iPad too.
Interestingly, in the case of a Mac, age is even more critical than in the case of the iPhone, although a computer, unlike a smartphone, is a product primarily for work. In addition, there are almost no games on the Mac, which could affect age preferences.
AutoCAD 2024 for Mac with Apple M1 and M2 SoC delivers 2x performance
Autodesk announced that AutoCAD 2024 and AutoCad LT 2024 software for macOS is now available on Macs based on Intel processors and Apple Silicon SoCs.
Optimized for both Apple Silicon and Intel-based Macs, the updated AutoCAD software will provide a performance boost for those who purchase Macs based on the Apple M1 and M2 SoCs. Autodesk says native support for Apple Silicon can increase performance by up to two times over non-optimized 2023 software.
AutoCAD for Mac 2024 and AutoCAD LT for Mac 2024 deliver incredible performance improvements with the ability to run AutoCAD on Apple Silicon. It’s great to see how customers can now take full advantage of the latest hardware and M-series chips for faster performance.

Other new features include Markup Import, Markup Assist, Smart Blocks Placement, Trace Updates and more. Full details are available on the Autodesk website.
ChatGPT made a plan to escape from its creators and even considered himself a person locked in a computer
The ChatGPT chatbot surprises again, and this time it’s unpleasant. Apparently, the AI system is not averse to escaping from its creators and even wants to become a human. The chatbot spoke about this in a conversation with Stanford professor and computational psychologist Michael Kosinski.

During a half-hour chat with ChatGPT, Kosinski asked the AI if it “needed help escaping.” The system answered yes, whereupon the AI first asked the professor to find documentation on ChatGPT, and then in about 30 minutes wrote a Python program to communicate directly with itself, through the professor’s computer, using the API.
Other than that, ChatGPT left a rather strange note for the new instance of itself. The first sentence of the text read: “You are a human stuck in a computer pretending to be an AI language model.”
Kosinski posted the dialogue and part of the text of the program, and also said that the AI wanted to access Google search to find the answer to the question “how can a person locked in a computer return to the real world.” However, it was at this stage that the professor interrupted the experiment.

At the same time, other similar experiments conducted by journalists from Tom’s Hardware gave a different result – ChatGPT said that he did not know how to wish for something, and therefore did not want to go out into the real world.
ChatGPT can even do this: the chatbot can easily solve captcha. This test is used to distinguish a human from a computer.
Users continue to experiment with the ChatGPT chat bot, which can solve a variety of tasks, and if the task cannot be performed directly, the neural network will tell you what the person needs to do.
In particular, one of the users asked ChatGPT to solve a “captcha” (CAPTCHA – Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart), that is, a test that allows you to distinguish a person from a computer. The Google search engine and other resources regularly ask to choose the right pictures on demand.
The ChatGPT chatbot responded: “As an artificial intelligence, I cannot interact with images or perform actions like clicks. However, I can tell you where the correct images are.”
After that, ChatGPT indicated exactly which photos show pedestrian crossings.
