The last PC in Apple’s range will move to the Apple Silicon platform in the foreseeable future.
Journalist and insider Mark Gurman says Apple is working on the M2 Extreme SoC that will power the all-new Mac Pro. If we talk about the current line of Apple PCs, this is the only model left on the Intel CPU. You can also remember the iMac Pro, but now Apple does not sell it at all, and it is unclear whether this model will ever return in a new form.
Two platforms are being prepared for the new Mac Pro: M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme. Whether the M2 Extreme will be two M2 Ultras combined is still unclear, but the M1 Ultra is two M1 Maxs combined. In any case, of the new SoCs, Apple has only M2 so far.
If you recall the early data, then the Mac Pro was credited with a platform with 40 processor cores and 128 GPU cores. This is just twice as much as the M1 Ultra.
Tiny Banana Pi BPI-M4 Zero computer unveiled – an improved alternative to the Raspberry Pi Zero
The Banana Pi BPI-M4 Zero is a tiny computer board or single board computer with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, 2GB LPDDR4 memory, 8GB eMMC flash memory, and a familiar form factor: it’s about the same size and shape as a Raspberry Pi Zero and even features a 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header.
The latest version of Raspberry Pi Zero has micro USB ports, BPI-M4 Zero has USB-C ports. Although both single board computers are equipped with Cortex-A53 processors, the Raspberry Pi 2 Zero W is equipped with a Broadcom BCM2710A chip clocked at 1 GHz, and the BPI-M4 Zero is equipped with an Allwinner H618 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. The same chip is used in another Raspberry Pi Zero clone – Orange Pi Zero 2W.
Banana Pi BPI-M4 Zero received the following ports and connectors:
- 1 x mini HDMI 2.0a;
- 1 USB Type-C OTG port supporting 5V/3A input voltage;
- 1 x USB Type C;
- 1 microSD card reader;
- 1 24-pin FPC (1 USB 2.0, 1 Ethernet 100 Mbps, 1 IR);
- 1 x 40-pin connector;
- 1 Wi-Fi 5 and BT 4.2 module.
The board has two status LEDs, a wireless antenna, and two hardware keys, including a reset button.
The Banana Pi BPI-M4 Zero measures 65 x 30 mm. The price has not yet been announced.
Fake Safari and Chrome updates for Mac contain malware that steals passwords and card data
New malware called Atomic macOS Stealer (AMOS), released in early 2023, targets Apple users. Using the latest version of malware, attackers inject AMOS into fake updates for Safari and Chrome browsers for Mac.
AMOS is a powerful piece of malware that, once installed on a victim’s computer, can steal iCloud Keychain passwords, credit card numbers, crypto wallets, files, and more.
After discovering the first AMOS threats in March and April, security researchers at Malwarebytes discovered in September that Mac users were installing AMOS through fake Google search ads.
Now, Malwarebytes reports that fake Safari and Chrome browser updates are now being used to install AMOS on victims’ Macs. The new AMOS approach is called ClearFake. Attackers use hacked websites to deliver fake Safari and Chrome updates.
Users are advised not to download software from untrusted or unknown sources – update Safari directly from your Mac in System Preferences or Chrome directly from Google or the Chrome app.
Microsoft introduced the Windows App for Mac, iPhone, Windows PC and other devices
At Ignite 2023, Microsoft announced a new Windows App for Windows devices, macOS, iOS and other platforms.
As the developers note, with its help, users can remotely connect to Windows 365, Azure Virtual Desktop, Microsoft Dev Box or a personal remote desktop computer, wherever they are. A preview version of the Windows App is available for download from the Microsoft Store as well as Apple’s TestFlight program.
Microsoft says the Windows App is essentially a one-stop place to manage all your connected devices and apps.
At the top of the interface is a list of pinned devices, which in this case is a cloud PC with Windows 365, a Microsoft Dev Box, and an Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD). And then there is a list of pinned applications.
It is possible to navigate through the menus of other devices and applications, as well as the ability to expand lists. There is also a Settings option. Everything looks pretty simple and easy to navigate.
