Probably because non-M1 iPads have 6 GB of RAM or less(often 4 GB or less). M1 iPads have 8 or more GB.
Might also be targeting M-series Macs and M1 iPad compatibility is a lucky side effect.

Childbirth does not exist in a vacuum. The women forced into it are likely to be poor, resulting in a higher likelihood of all sorts of complications that will make their offspring’s life even more difficult.
It would be amazing if every child was born into a loving world full of opportunity. That is not the world we live in, and just having more babies will not make it so. It’s going to result in more poverty and more crime.
But hey, one of those kids will own their own McDonald’s franchise, so the rest of them suffering will all have been worth it.

No, I’m saying there will be more of them.
Is your stance that it’s better for there to be an increase in people who will be miserable for their entire childhood (feeling unwanted) and likely their entire lives (zero support from society) just because you’d feel bad they didn’t get an infinitesimal chance at being an exception to the overwhelming status quo?
Do you REALLY think a party that just said they want to take away protection for gay marriage will make adoption easier? For who? It’s not the WASP families that have issues adopting kids.

Let’s be clear: your hope of "maybe more adoptions" will lead to many more miserable women (and likely underage girls) in addition to all the unwanted, uncared for children they have. The infrastructure to provide actual care for these pregnant women and their eventual children does not exist and never will under our current leadership.
I’d be willing to bet there will be more children stuck with uncaring parents or in foster/state care than there are couples looking to adopt. Might even be the case right now.

if it does impact you, move
Gross oversimplification of the challenges this will present. People have lives. They could be born into poverty. They could be in abusive relationships that keep them from moving. They could be in witness protection. They could be kept from moving for legal reasons. They could have children they don’t want to upend.
I haven’t used them myself, but a lot of people like the Hori Split Pad Pro. They’re available on Amazon.ca.

I wonder if it was pushed back to align with the Mac/iPad release?

Sure, but supply of the Steam Deck is waaaaaay more constrained than the Switch. You can get an OLED Switch at retail right now. You’re waiting until at least the end of the year for a Steam Deck if you don’t have a reservation. I ordered on July 16, 2021 and I’m still in the queue for a Q3 delivery.

He’s been a public figure for a while. He’s been getting 24/7 coverage for the last year or two.
Granted, this is what he wants. It’s very easy to stay out of the limelight.

I think it’s the price and expectations set by other tablet devices. I don’t see as many complaints about monochrome e-readers.
E-Ink is great for reading, but it’s still pretty abysmal at anything in motion. I think any UI used with them should be customized to have little or no motion. Even Amazon falters a bit there.
I don’t think podcast networks on their own are bad, but the consolidation of many into major corporations is pretty terrible. I’ve seen some of my favorite podcasts balloon from twenty minutes to forty-five due to obscene amounts of ad insertion.
I’ve taken to giving more to Patreon in the hopes it keeps some of my personal favorites from disappearing or being absorbed.
Did you feel it when the joke went over your head, or was it too far above you?
