I wish Apple design less thin MacBook (at least for Pro), and focus on thermal control. Aesthetic is only the first impression, if I'm seating 6-8 hours in front of my machine, a good thermal control is a huge user experience booster…

I have a MacBook (Mid 2017) that had 3.9k Single/7.5k Multi Cores. When I'm doing any heavy work, it slow down heat up and slow down real fast.

It kinda make me wonder if A12 chip can handle such heavy workload but demand less thermally, it be an amazing MacBook chip.

I think thermal control is very important for prolong usage.

My current machine never really lag, that's cause its backed by a Noctua NH-D15, you can push it real very far…

This revived MBP 2013 use to be like that but it probably slow down due to dust buildup over the years.

Geekbench of this machine is at 4.3k Single/15k Multi Cores.

Amazing…

As a benchmark My current one running 8700K (not OC'ed) is on 5.7k Single and 27k Multi Cores. Though this machine run at around 35-45 degree celcius on average.

Yesterday I got back my MacBook Pro 2013 repaired from Apple Store. Previously, it had a bloated batt and so they have the batt, casing (apparently keyboard and touchpad) replaced.

After using it for awhile at Starbucks, man remind me how much I loved this machine…

Isn’t it incredible how much @[email protected] has embraced Open Source, Open Platforms (Linux), and developers in general? Most are grateful, a few are suspicious, but no one is unimpressed.

I just open-sourced Euclid, the 3D geometry creation and manipulation library for Swift that powers my ShapeScript app: github.com/nicklockwood/Euclid

Note: While ShapeScript is currently only for macOS, Euclid works on Mac, iOS, and hopefully Linux too (I don't have a way to test it).

Just so people don't roll eye on me about esports, these player make some serious money here…

It's right, we all have to learn to lose…

But it does not help you to win, it help you to manage yourself better but you are still at a disadvantage.

What is real important is to prevent the spiral effect of losing, and start snowballing your advantage.

And in all the things I been talking, how snowballing your advantage is the key to winning: in finance, in life, in gaming…

But you might say, wait a minute, the 2nd point about gamers are exactly what the original article say, you need to learn to lose…

2 things surprises me:

- How much they emphasis on snowballing their advantage
- How easy they gave up if they felt that their disadvantage is too great to overcome

The common theme in the 2 points how among the best, the power curve rule a lot…

I going to shift your attention to eSports. Where I learnt about the lingo "snowballing"…

Twitch is interesting because you get to see in real-life the best players in their games play and often get insights to what their thought process is…

I finally found the article!

In this article, "The 1 Percent Rule: Why a Few People Get Most of the Rewards", it describe how our society "winner takes all/most" give winners accumulative advantage…

Here's a few snippet of fact and info before I explains:

Do you know what was Warren Buffett biography called? The Snowball…

First of all, not being a straight A student ever in my life, this article would have been a validation to my way of life. I should have feel good about it. Maybe a few years ago, I would have, but I have a different thoughts today…

I have an unpopular opinion about this and I want to talk about a concept called "Snowballing"…
