Apple execs talk M1, chip specs versus real-world performance in interview

Apple’s M1 chip was designed with actual real-world performance in mind and not the on paper specifications usually touted by chipmakers, according to a trio of Apple executives.

Software chief Craig Federighi, SVP of Worldwide Marketing Greg Joswiak and hardware SVP Johny Srouji, recently spoke to True Ventures partner and journalist Om Malik to explain how the Apple Silicon chip differs from its competitors.

For one, Federighi said that the specifications “typically bandied about in the industry” have stopped being a predictor of real-world performance.

YouTube pulls interview with Alex Jones after banned Infowars publisher makes ‘firing squad’ remark

YouTube yanked a video featuring right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones from its platform Friday over a comment the controversial Infowars publisher made about Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.

Mr. Jones has been prohibited from uploading his own content to YouTube for more than two years, although he has side-stepped that soft ban in part by appearing on channels operated by other users.

He recently spoke for hours with internet personality Tim Pool, who posted a video of their discussion to his YouTube channel Thursday before it was removed from the platform shortly afterward.

YouTube said the video was found to have violated its rules because of a remark Mr. Jones made about Mr. Gates — a frequent subject of the fringe theories he promotes — and wanting people killed.

Mr. Jones, meanwhile, claimed his comment was misinterpreted and argued Mr. Pool was “stampeded” by YouTube.

The remark occurred during part of

An Interview With Tipalti’s CFO

Finance professionals increasingly rely on data-driven software to manage complex organizations, whether making better sense of supply chains or using artificial intelligence to enhance forecasting. But software is itself constantly in-flux, requiring adept financial management from skilled CFOs. That is why this month I spoke to the CFOs of two different software platforms, asking them about the implications of software for finance professionals in general and what issues the finance function faces in this sector.

With the rise in global economic tumult, due to the Covid-19 crisis, the need for seamless, technology-enabled solutions to manage global supply chains has never been more apparent. I recently spoke with Sarah Dickens Spoja, CFO of accounts payable software provider Tipalti, about her company’s role in helping finance leaders navigate uncertainty and ensure timely, secure processes for paying global
