@siegel @dnanian I still hope they will change the colors, but perhaps this CSS will help you tone it down:

@tgaul Maybe at some point they thought they’d implement submenus? That doesn’t seem very useful, though.

@tgaul Interesting. I was quoting from the header. The docs say it has to be an array of strings. But then in Swift they type it as [Any]?.

@vslavik @AllAppleLeaks Yeah, that confused me, too. Why is everyone acting as if the current iMac is particularly quiet?

@AllAppleLeaks I did see that, and it sounds great for people who need lots of simulators, but it doesn't answer th… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@reneritchie Seems odd that they would then choose a less impressive benchmark to publish.

@howardnoakley OK, will take a look the next time this happens. Thanks!

@reneritchie Are you referring to the Build Time benchmark here: apple.com/imac-pro/ where the 2.4x was for the… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@frankreiff @jonnikuest @cabel Yeah, both of those are much worse than what Apple is claiming (and apparently told the press).

@howardnoakley Hmm, so you think the issue is that it’s Form-D in Git but when I edit the file (without renaming) i… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Curious that none of these iMac Pro articles touting benefits for developers mention specifics about compilation performance.

@mdrockwell Don’t worry; they’ll be consistent after the next redesign of the consumer-level iMac.

Not exactly sure what’s going on, but the combination of non-ASCII filenames, git, and APFS is causing problems. I… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

@MacLemon Yeah, I was wondering whether /dev/null would work. I thought the GUI tools read multiple times and compare results.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to MacLemon

@MacLemon Looks like it has to copy the disk to check for bad blocks?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to MacLemon

@tgaul Yeah, nice to be able to change your mind. I wonder whether there was a technical reason for the change. (I… twitter.com/i/web/status/9…

Interesting that iMac Pro has an option for a VESA adapter rather than a separate SKU.

@Deluxive My guess is no because it looks like the app checks which OS version you’re using and bails.
