A reset can be incredibly helpful in fixing issues with your Mac, but it's not always necessary. Here we'll walk you through the steps needed to reset your Mac, and when it's the best course of action.
These are the steps you'll need to take before finding your Mac a new owner.
Before you sell your Mac, you'll need to take a few extra steps to reset it. First of all, you'll need to make sure all your data is wiped. This used to be a simple process- just deleting files and emptying the trash would do the trick. However, with iCloud and Find My installed on most Macs, it's not that simple anymore. Your device may be backed up to the cloud, which could mean your data is still accessible by the new owner. To make sure your data is actually inaccessible, you'll need to reset your Mac to its factory settings. This will erase everything from your hard drive, including photos, music and documents. It's a good idea to do this before you sell your device online, as it will ensure that your personal information is not accessible to the new owner.

GPUs are back in stock (well, sort of)
GPUs are, finally, starting to become more readily available. 3DCenter Germany released a report in mid-April indicating that AMD GPU prices had declined in the past three weeks by an average of 13%. Nvidia cards had dropped 6%. While this is good news, we're not out of the woods just yet. All of the stock cards sold directly by AMD and Nvidia are out of stock and you'll still need to pay a small markup for most cards.

Young Engineer Produces Pens And Watches From Scratch In 2022
In 2022, a young engineer by the name of Ian Schon produced watches and pens from scratch. While many would be quick to rely on already-made components and movements, Schon took a different tack, producing each component of his products himself. From sourcing watch movements and pen nibs to crafting cases and assembling the finished product, Schon does it all. Even the screws and other tiny details are put in place by hand. And he doesn't just assemble products- he designs them as well. Starting at around $5,400 for a watch or $70 for a ballpoint pen, Schon offers not only a rare level of vertically integrated craftsmanship but also his unique artistic vision.
