The Morning After: We reviewed Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro, and its keyboard

Over the last few years, social networks have instituted slightly stiffer policies against misinformation, but those systems are being pressed to their limit by a fast-spreading new video. The ‘Plandemic’ clip “spreads debunked conspiracy theories about the coronavirus and features a discredited biologist.” Meanwhile, the removal of coronavirus misinformation has pushed theorists to suggest such reasonable moderation is just another conspiracy.

For the first time in years, our discussion of new Apple laptops doesn’t include any consideration of waiting for an updated keyboard. The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the last machine in its lineup to get the new/old Magic Keyboard design as part of a hardware refresh that also brings Intel’s latest 10th-generation Core CPUs with more power and better battery life.

You can catch all the action with no filler in our 15-minute supercut or click through below for an evaluation of everything we saw and what Microsoft has yet to reveal about the Xbox Series X.

Microsoft’s new Surface lineup looks good, and Cherlynn Low was impressed by the company’s efforts in audio with new earbuds and headphones.

Alphabet’s Sidewalk Labs abandons its Toronto smart-neighborhood project
