iMac gets M1!

iMacApple introduced a stunning new 24" iMac built from the ground up around the Apple M1 chip. The new iMac is up to 2x faster yet has only two tiny fans producing less than 10 db of noise under most use (hardly audible at all). They come in seven colours and finally have available a Keyboard with built-in Touch ID support. The camera, 3 way mics, and speakers all get major improvements too. Prices start at $1599 CAD. Order starting April 30 for delivery by the end of May.

iPad Pro gets M1 too!

iPad ProThe new iPad Pro also gets the M1 chip allowing it to outperform the video of a gen 1 iPad by an astonishing 1500 x. Along with the M1 comes 40 Gbps Thunderbolt and 5G cellular for incredible communications. The camera is now ultrawide 12 Mp with a LiDAR scanner for depth perception and Augmented Reality (AR) support. And the display on the 12.9" model is made of thousands of mini LEDs giving it a Liquid Retina XDR display with million to one contrast ratio like Apple's $6k Pro Display XDR. Pro indeed! Like the iMac, order on April 30 for delivery by end of May.

Adobe Retiring Type 1 Fonts!

Adobe Type 1Type 1 fonts made their intro in 1984 and now Adobe has announced that users will no longer have the ability to author content using Type 1 fonts beginning January 2023. Until that time, users will be able to work with their Type1 fonts without any change. Type 1 data embedded in file types such as EPS and PDF will be unaffected by this change, as long as they are placed for display or printing as graphic elements. If those files are opened for editing in applications such as Illustrator or Photoshop, they will trigger a "Missing fonts error.
