Apple is investigating an issue related to 'pink squares' with the M1 Mac mini
by Usama Jawad
Apple announced the M1 Mac mini in November 2020, promising 3 times faster CPU speeds, 6 times the GPU performance (with support for 6K displays), and 15 times the machine learning performance over the previous generation. While the performance of the Apple Silicon chip has been praised, the company is reportedly investigating an issue where "pink squares" appear when the new Mac mini is connected to a display.
Multiple threads on Apple's forums have cited an issue where random pink squares appear on the display when the M1 Mac mini is connected via the HDMI port rather than the Thunderbolt. One such thread has over 500 endorsements from users who faced the same issue. The forum post mentions that:
While the culprit behind the issue is currently unknown, MacRumors has obtained an internal memo, dated February 19, which indicates that Apple is investigating the problem. In the meantime, the following troubleshooting steps have been mentioned in the memo:
Put the Mac mini to sleep Wait two minutes and wake the Mac mini Unplug the display from the Mac mini, and then plug the display back in Adjust the display's resolution in System Preferences > Displays As Apple has not publicly acknowledged the investigation yet, it is unclear as to when a fix will be released. That said, it should be sooner rather than later given that the company is actively looking into it.

Hyperkin announces plans to release a new HDMI cable for the original Xbox
by Timi Cantisano
It's hard to believe, but 17 years ago, Microsoft launched its first gaming console, the Xbox. Now, nearly two decades after its release, Hyperkin is announcing plans to release a new accessory for the console.
Although the original Xbox had the ability to output in HD, it did so through component cables. You wouldn't give Hyperkin much credit if it just released a component solution in 2018. Luckily, the firm has something better in mind with its cable that will output to a display using HDMI. The original Xbox has a proprietary port on the back, so presumably, it will go from that port to HDMI. The solution will allow the Xbox to output at a max resolution of 1080i. This isn't the first cable of its kind, with other companies making something similar, but it could be the first to be approved and licensed by Xbox.
Hyperkin has been paying homage to the original Xbox quite a bit, starting with last year's Duke controller. During this year's E3, the company showed off its neon variants of the Duke controller. While the company has announced the new cable, it won't be available until the final quarter of the year. Hyperkin has not announced a price.
Hello! I am using an HDMI cable for my Samsung monitor, but it isn’t working. I have tried all 5 ports and tried them in different cable positions but when I switch to HDMI it would say “Check signal cable” in the screen. Please, if you know how to fix this, make it urgent!
(P.S I noticed 2/3 ports that would be loose when I plug my cable in)
