Mac-wards Compatibility – DTNS 4309

We discuss the data breach of the Shanghai National Police database compromising about 24 terabytes of data on around a billion Chinese residents. Examine the prospects of slowing demand for chips and other semiconductors as sales of PCs and crypto mining hardware soften. And we discuss Ars Technica’s Andrew Cunningham’s story “Some Macs are getting fewer updates than they used to. Here’s why it’s a problem”.

Starring Tom Merritt, Sarah Lane, Shannon Morse, Roger Chang, Joe, Amos
