Arun Venkatesan takes a deep dive into the design and engineering behind the new Mac Pro:
Apple held its annual developer conference, WWDC, this week in San Jose. In the keynote, aside from a slew of developer-focused software announcements, one new hardware announcement has attracted the most attention, the 2019 Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR.

Download the Virtual COM Port Drivers and reboot your iDevice. After that Subsurface should recognise your Suunto Vyper.
As a diver one logs all his/her dives into a paper logbook. In the paper logbook one generally notes things like the gear used, the volume of air consumed, the buddies you dove with, the diving/weather conditions, special things/animals that were encountered, a description of the dive (or a map), etc.

Next to the paper logbook, modern dive computers (which divers use to keep an eye on their depth, remaining bottom time, etc.) also keep digital logs of each dive onto the dive computer itself. Over the weekend I decided to check out Subsurface, a piece of open source software for reading out scuba dives from your dive computer (created by Linus Torvalds, of all people). So I connected my Suunto Vyper to my Mac using the provided USB cable and … nothing – even though the docs state that Subsurface should automatically detect your dive computer.
Checking out System Information.app my Suunto Vyper was indeed connected, yet Subsurface would not recognize it.
The Macintosh is a computer with history: with its first desktop computer “Lisa” Apple showed more than 30 years ago not only what was technically possible – the design of the iMac & Co. regularly causes stir. For CURVED/labs a good reason to develop a pioneering anniversary model for Apple that can not deny its origin.
Neat redesign, with respect for the original Macintosh.
Over the weekend an important set of commits (this one amongst others) landed in Chromium, enabling Emoji in Chrome on OS X, and – after 4 years – marking the bug “Emoji does not display in webpage contents on OS X Lion+” as fixed.
