Apple's M1 Silicon (completely different class of product)
Oct 18, 2021
Introducing M1 Pro and M1 Max: the most powerful chips Apple has ever built
"M1 has transformed our most popular systems with incredible
performance, custom technologies, and industry-leading power
efficiency. No one has ever applied a system-on-a-chip
design to a pro system until today with M1 Pro and M1 Max,"
said Johny Srouji, Apple's senior vice president of Hardware
Technologies. "With massive gains in CPU and GPU
performance, up to six times the memory bandwidth, a new
media engine with ProRes accelerators, and other advanced
technologies, M1 Pro and M1 Max take Apple silicon even
further, and are unlike anything else in a pro notebook."

Apple Platform Security (May 2022)
macOS now scans for malware whenever it gets a chance
In the last six months macOS malware protection has changed
more than it did over the previous seven years. It has now
gone fully pre-emptive, as active as many commercial
anti-malware products, provided that your Mac is running
Catalina or later. This article updates those I've
previously written about Apple's new tool in the war against
malware, XProtect Remediator.

The Mac Desktop, like a furniture desktop, may be kept clean
ready for some new project, or like some, piled with things
(icons), such that one has to sort through to find this or
that. There are several good reasons not to clutter your
Desktop unnecessarily. One is that every icon is a running
process that does take some Processor time.
