  • You can connect AirPods to a Mac using the Bluetooth menu on the computer.
  • If you’ve connected your AirPods to your iPhone already, connecting them to your Mac is even easier — just select them in the Volume menu.
  • If that doesn’t work, make sure that “Handoff” is enabled on your Mac, and that it’s logged into the same iCloud account as your iPhone.

“The album echos the psychological depression on the pandemic-imposed isolation of today.” Illustration published on Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020.

“OK Computer,” the 1997 album by the English rock band Radiohead, is collectively understood as a commentary on the overpowering sense of alienation that results from living in an increasingly self-indulgent and technologically-dependent society.

Listening to the record in the pandemic-ravaged world of today might conjure up the image of donning a mask and walking alone down Palm Walk, an apocalyptic scene juxtaposed with the fierce midday rays of the Arizona sun. 

It might also bring to mind the scene of sitting in your bedroom, accompanied only by your laptop, as you prepare to log on to an endless string of Zoom classes.

Italian computer whizz-kid to be beatified | The Canberra Times

news, latest-news

Carlo Acutis, an Italian teenager informally known as “God’s influencer,” is set to be beatified by the Catholic Church. Beatification is one step removed from sainthood, or canonisation. Acutis, who died from leukaemia aged 15 in 2006, was a deeply religious computer whizz-kid from Milan, who saw the internet as a way to spread the Catholic faith. According to Nicola Gori, the man who is promoting Acutis’ sainthood cause, he was “a normal boy like many others” who liked playing football and hanging out with friends. But Acutis also helped priests set up websites for their parishes and created an online exhibition on religious miracles from around the world. His mother Antonia Salzano told Vatican News her son was “considered a computer genius because he knew logarithms, he knew how to make programs and read university texts on these topics”. Acutis also used to go out at night

Back in 1954, Lourie was a technical editor, playing clarinet in a Boston-area ensemble, when the pianist, an MIT chemist, hired her to process data on punch paper tape.

“It was a pretty rote job,” said Lourie, now 90, over Zoom from her home in Arlington, Vt. The chemist published a paper on the project, and in a footnote mentioned Lourie as a contributor.

“It felt wonderful,” she said. She was off and running.

She speaks humbly about her work in computers, as if her path unfolded purely by luck and circumstance. In 1957, IBM hired her, and she moved to New York, where she devised a program implementing a new computer language, LISP, developed by John McCarthy at MIT. The research helped
