Apple Intelligence!

Apple IntelligenceAt Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in California last week the company announced it will be bringing Apple Intelligence to its platform in beta this Fall. Apple Intelligence is touted as A.I. for the rest of us. It will work only on Apple Silicon devices. How does it compare to things like Microsoft Copilot and ChatGPT? Apple Intelligence queries get processed on your device and not in the Cloud. Your info is not sent to Apple (or anyone else). And it will be built in to the operating system at no extra charge! (Meanwhile, Microsoft Copilot for 365 is $440 CAD / user / year). I can't wait for the Autumn to try it out.

SketchUp 2024!

SketchUpTrimble has announced SketchUp 2024. A new graphics engine shows an average eight times increase in frames per second rendered. Trimble says you can unlock more realistic visuals directly in SketchUp and elevate your models by adding depth in-app. Ambient Occlusion helps you find a visual balance between too simple and too realistic.
