I'm not seeing a "sponsored by Apple inc." disclaimer anywhere, but has dev.to started doing paid ads? πŸ€ͺ

Well, it's a post about product X from company Y. I don't see how it is related to coding or development by the dev.to standards (judging by the rest of the conent).
Feels misplaced, it's something fit for the likes of pcmag, gizmodo, wired...
But maybe I'm wrong, just my thoughts.

A lot of devs use MacBooks, so I don't see anything strange about that post. There are always discussions about hardware, so seeing one about MacBook is not something that feels misplaced (at least for me).

It does for me. It's just a certain machine from a certain company, like many others, nothing special or praise worthy, perhaps the opposite tbh; brand new game changing esc key charade, the kb fiasco, thermal throttling, at that price range? All that aside, it's just a box where you run the tools to get work done, and dev.to, for me, is about that work.
My thoughts :)
