Remote Bitcoin mining. Maybe Elan M—k and is behind it.
Don't think Elon needs to resort to that to make money.

If you use Firefox it automatically blocks cryptomining through the browser, the most common way hackers do that.

I’m sure Apple will figure it out. They are priority one. The Apple Car, Elon is a competitor for autonomous vehicles.

I had thought a full power cycle involves going from a fully charged battery to a completely discharged battery. That would mean they're really doing something intensive to eat up the battery. Apple says the max battery cycle count is only 1000 and they're already at 256 after owning it for 2 months ?

I read the image as showing the number of times that the SSD has been power cycled rather than the battery has been discharged.

Sounds accurate. Why would they power cycle their SSD that often ? When it's only been in use under 200 hours is my question.

I guess that is the number of times that the computer has been turned on/off.
