Oh yeah! New Week - Techish Kenya Newsletter Issue #27!

Hello!
Have you installed Windows 11 yet? I’d like to know how your experience has been like. What’s the new thing that you really like?
Today evening we will be watching another Apple Event. The company is expected to unveil its new line of MacBooks which according to leaks will feature a faster and more powerful Apple-made processor, an array of ports (like the old times), and perhaps even a notch on the new display. Let’s wait and see!
I have loved my M1 MacBook Pro, and I feel bad because I know my device is about to be old in a few hours. (I’ve been taking offers - provided the new Macs have good starting prices - LOL!)
Last Monday, was a holiday. So I was on holiday. There was no newsletter. Took that time to watch Squid Game - mostly so I could understand the conversations people were having. I liked it. It’s not great. But it’s not terrible. Stream it if you have the time. (I also watched Venom2 - and I had nothing much to say)
Here’s a couple of interesting things I’d like to share with you:
  1. Remember Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram being down? Company said it was caused by a “Faulty Configuration” change. It just so happens that this came when a Whistleblower had shared on how the company chooses profit over health, and truth.
  2. Robots and Guns isn’t a fun thing to think of after all the movies. But some people have decided to do it anyways.
  3. Google Search knowledge panels can lead to very bad things happening. This is thanks to this tweet pointing out how the AI fails to understand the content.
