In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at photos of the week, Diane Arbus, GPU performance in the new M1 chips and Amiga OS 3.2.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 Photos of the Week including Pony Man, an ancient sword, a traditional foam fight and dumpster diving worthy of an Olympic event.
  • Gillian Wearing: Diane Arbus is an exhibition, temporarily installed at the entrance to Central Park, of Wearing's life-size bronze statue of Diane Arbus, one artist's tribute to another. "Like a photograph come to life, Wearing captures Arbus as she might have appeared, holding her distinctive Mamiyaflex camera, gaze fixed on her next subject."
  • Andrei Frumusanu looks at the M1 Pro and M1 Max, particularly in terms of GPU performance. "While the M1 Pro catches up and outpaces the laptop competition in terms of performance," he writes, "the M1 Max is aiming at delivering something never-before seen: supercharging the GPU to a total of 32 cores. Essentially it's no longer an SoC (system on a chip) with an integrated GPU, rather it's a GPU with an SoC around it."
  • OTOH, if you're feeling a little retro, Amiga OS 3.2 was just released (with updated JPEG support) and AmigaBill has the rundown:

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
