"Broad brush strokes" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Al Soot on Unsplash

"Broad brush strokes" -> nghĩa là chỉ đưa ra những ý chính, không đi vào chi tiết.

Ví dụ
As the Greens have found out over the past week that has meant that what she wanted was a Labour-alone Government. Thus the Co-operation Agreement with the Greens has been painted in very broad brush strokes and keeps them outside Cabinet and away from the power portfolios (giấy tờ)..

“I genuinely think this is the most important budget in the history of SA… we’re moving away from broad brush strokes to a more nuanced (sắc thái) approach.” The Government’s stimulus (tác nhân kích thích) commitment has doubled to $4 billion – although the Opposition has pointed to last month’s Auditor General’s report which showed only $282 million of the initial $1 billion stimulus announced in March had been spent by mid-year, with Shadow Treasurer Stephen Mullighan declaring “announcements means nothing unless this money is actually spent”.

Broad brush strokes were what was required. Clear and certain narratives. The rejection of all this should not have come down to the nitty gritty (những điều cơ bản nhất của một vấn đề). Barack Obama called it the most important election of his lifetime. It was equally important it had a clear answer, but that did not happen.

It is difficult to answer these questions because to draw a contrast with Trump, Biden only needs to paint in broad brush strokes. He knows his connection to Barack Obama is an asset (vốn quý), and no political benefit exists in distancing himself from the former president.

"Before you know where you are" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Murilo Viviani

"Before you know where you are" = chưa kịp xác định mình đang ở đâu -> nghĩa là nhanh chóng hoặc rất đột ngột.

Ví dụ
“As can happen in those situations, people pair up and before you know where you are, you end up being engaged and getting married and buying a house and raising children.”

"Before you know where you are there are 12 or 20 people who have been exposed to the virus. "They go home, they are maybe living with parents and siblings, and, before you know where you are, you have got another outbreak that needs to be dealt with."

“It’s funny because when you’re actually up there it’s just about putting one foot in front of the other and thinking: ‘I know I can do ten steps, so if I do ten of those in a row that’s 100 steps’, and then before you know where you are you’ve done a kilometre."

"The mixture as before" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Quaid Lagan

"The mixture as before" = sự kết hợp như trước -> nghĩa là điều gì, hành động hay hoàn cảnh tương tự như trước đó.

Ví dụ
This year it’s the mixture as before, but with a little inspired tweaking. Chris Hannon is donning the crazy gowns and elaborate head-dresses for the tenth time at Wakefield, but for the first time he has written the show, too, and you don’t need to read his programme note to know that he has, in his own words, “put a spin” on the story.

It’s the mixture as before and yet it isn’t. The opportunities to bring the premise up-to-date have not been missed — in the lengthy detour (sự chệch hướng) that traps the protagonists (vai chính) in a detention centre on the US border and in the allusions to omnipresent (có mặt ở khắp mọi nơi) electronic surveillance (sự giám sát, theo dõi), suggesting that the machines have already taken over.

The show was already sumptuously (xa hoa, lộng lẫy) produced, and its original cast members return to many previously seen settings, so the movie essentially is what Maugham might call “the mixture as before.” Also, only one year has passed at Downton even though four have gone by for us, so there’s no big “Avengers: Endgame”-style time jump. (Incredibly, that’s only the first of two Marvel references in this review—which either says something about the current state of the movie industry, or about Yours Truly.)

"Tears before bedtime" nghĩa là gì?

"Tears before bedtime" = chưa ngủ đã khóc -> nghĩa là có chuyện tồi tệ/rắc rối xảy ra.

Ví dụ
THE Cold Feet finale didn't disappoint and there were more than a few tears before bedtime. The last episode of season nine had us all on an emotional roller-coaster.

Tears before bedtime. In an age of competitive mothering, parenting websites have become emotional battlegrounds and a magnet (nam châm) for trolls.

More cause for celebration with the return of Talking Heads (BBC1, Tuesday). Alan Bennett’s brilliant monologues have been remade with a new cast to cheer us up in these virus times. Between Imelda Staunton’s poisonous letter writer in A Lady of Letters, and Sarah Lancashire as a mother with a shocking secret in An Ordinary Woman, pain and loneliness ran through these first dramas. It ought to have meant tears before bedtime, but Bennett gave us laugh out loud writing besides. That, plus superb performances, make Talking Heads a must see once more.

"Don't cry before you are hurt" = đừng chưa đau mà đã khóc -> nghĩa là đừng buồn trước khi chuyện xảy ra.

Ví dụ
Don't cry before you are hurt, babe. Everything will be not as worse as you think.

She's very sensitive, so don't let her be alone. Also, you should encourage her by saying that "don't cry before you are hurt".

Don't cry before you are hurt. You see, they are just kidding you! Your girlfriend is still with you and forever. No need to get upset about what they joked.

"Carry the world before (one)" = nhanh chóng giành cả thế giới -> nghĩa là sớm đạt được thành công lớn.

Ví dụ
“To carry the world before them really speaks highly of their dedication, character and willingness to get better every day,” Skiera said of the 11 Firsties, who became the largest class of women's lacrosse players commissioned into the Army to date. “I can’t say enough great things about what they’ve done for our program.”

“Deaf and Stellar” was written, produced, and sung by Tirea himself and creates the standard for his signature sound. The chill vibes are set from the beginning in this feel-good tune, allowing the listener to completely immerse themselves. This release follows “Hold Me” from October and an impressive “House of Chill” guest mix on SiriusXM Chill. Due to carrying the world before him, Rob Tirea has quickly earned support from respected online publications like Dancing Astronaut and more.

Rashmika Mandanna is a popular actress and model who works in Telugu and Kannada films. She has carried the world before her and has become the highest-paid actress in the industry. She made her acting introduction with the Kannada film Kirik Party in 2016. The actress has appeared in several popular films such as Kirik Party, Anjani Putra, etc. She has given back to back movies, and that has made her one of the most successful and popular stars in the industry.

"Carry all before (one)" nghĩa là giành chiến thắng/vượt qua tất cả.

Ví dụ
A fit-again De Bruyne is set to carry all before him. When he is on song, the whole show goes up a level.

Let us celebrate the steadfastness (tính kiên định, vững chắc) of Palestinian women, who give us hope, wherever we are. They are the embodiment of the Arab woman, the woman of all struggles combined. They carry all before them with their presence, resistance and beauty, as they stay defiantly in their homeland determined to live a full life. We do not need to mention that they also carry an acute sense of belonging and identity.

Installed as favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup on the back of that taking performance, it was a success that suggested that Colin Tizzard's latest chasing star could carry all before him in the staying division last winter. However, clearly things didn't go to plan thereafter, as the Flemensfirth gelding was pulled-up in the King George and swiftly sent for wind surgery, which undoubtedly helped him to secure a solid third placed finish in the Gold Cup in March - on a week when the Tizzard horses were running well below form.

"Bow down before" nghĩa là gì?

"Bow down before (one)" = cúi đầu trước ai -> nghĩa là tuân lời, cam kết trung thành hoặc phục tùng ý muốn của ai, nhất là theo cách tôn kính hoặc như nô lệ.

Ví dụ
Bitcoin rose on Friday as traders refused to bow down before Steven Mnuchin decided to end some of the Federal Reserve’s crisis-fighting facilities.

"I bow down before the greatness of of these people," Health Minister Vassilis Kikilias said on Wednesday regarding the 10 nurses who voluntarily transferred from Crete to Thessaloniki to help their colleagues in the battle with Covid-19.

Julie Cooper-Nichol from The OC: Julie Cooper-Nichol is the ultimate social climber – she came from a poor trailer park background, but that didn’t stop her clawing her way to the top of Newport Beach society, and going from rich man to rich man. The Real Housewives wishes it could serve up moments as iconic as “China has alopecia (hói/rụng tóc).” Bow down before her.

"Before you know it" nghĩa là gì?

"Before you know it" = chưa kịp hiểu (mô tê gì) -> nghĩa là diễn ra nhanh chóng hoặc đột ngột.

Ví dụ
Sure, you might start off discussing the latest restaurant to go out of business due to the pandemic, but before you know it, you and your aunt are debating the accuracy of CDC statistics and the effectiveness of face shields.

We were assured by the president of the United States that it was akin (thân thuộc, bà con, họ hàng) to a passing flu bug and would be gone before you know it. And heck, by Easter, he said it might be out of here. Well, we know what happened.

We are in the final stretch of 2020, and before you know it, the new year will be here, bringing all sorts of superhero shows back to our televisions. Whether it be shows like The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, or the final season of Supergirl, fans of the genre are going to be quite busy for the foreseeable future (tương lai biết trước).

"Before I can blink" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Luis Villasmil

"Before (one) can blink" = không kịp chớp mắt -> nghĩa là rất nhanh/đột ngột.

Ví dụ
It is no longer an interview but just a pleasant chat between two Scandinavians. Jiji interrupts to ask when they should go out for dinner, and before I can blink, they have asked me to join them. Seafood is on the menu – how could I possibly say no?

He is not a fool to realize that if he sells Messi or kicks him out, he will be off the Club before he can blink. But if he can agitate and frustrate the Argentinian just enough, the Captain may opt for the free transfer in the summer and just leave. Bu Bartomeu doesn't realize that any President who does not let Messi retire at the Club, will be automatically booted out. His ego is so much that it blinds him from that reality.

She insists their marriage is a love match and that will not happen, but they don’t buy it, chasing her into the pantry of her castle where she holes up with her children, awaiting English aid from her brother. Ultimately, it comes via Catherine in the form of Thomas Howard and a small party focused on diplomacy. Meg hopes to go to Stirling to discuss it all, but before she can blink, Angus and the other lords seize her children and cast her out.

"Act like you've been there before" nghĩa là gì?

"Act like you've been there before" = làm như trước đây bạn đã tới đó -> nghĩa là đừng hả hê/khoe khoang khi bạn thành công, đặc biệt trong thể thao. Cụm từ này liên quan đến huấn luyện viên bóng đá nổi tiếng của Mỹ tên Vince Lombardi.

Ví dụ
As my high school soccer coach once told me, “When you score a goal, act like you’ve been there before.” Of course, I hadn’t been there before; in fact, after I scored my first goal, I’d never go there again. I could have learned a lot from Winston Churchill: “In war: resolution; In defeat: defiance (sự thách thức, bất chấp); In victory: magnanimity (tính hào hiệp, cao thượng); In peace: goodwill.”

After Notre Dame's 47-40 double-overtime win over top-ranked Clemson last Saturday, the Irish jumped to a No. 2 ranking in the Associated Press Top 25 poll but entered a potential trap game Saturday at Boston College. Leinart, a former USC quarterback from 2003-05, questioned the Notre Dame focus after an emotional victory against the Tigers. "You know the phrase, 'Act like you've been there before,' the only problem is that Notre Dame has never been there before," Leinart said. "We'll see how they react."

Colin Cowherd: “There's an old saying of ‘Act Like You’ve Been There Before.’ The Philadelphia Eagles are imploding, and yesterday Carson Wentz had to answer questions because reportedly the practices are lousy, people are screwing off, and it manifests (tuyên ngôn) itself on bad Sunday games. Wentz had to address stories that the Eagles’ practices are a clown (chú hề) show. Do quarterbacks’ run practices?? The coaches do. Who hired them? It wasn’t Carson Wentz. This is a coach issue… Philadelphia won a Super Bowl and they partied for a year.

"In between times" nghĩa là gì?

"In between times" nghĩa là giữa lúc ấy/trong khoảng thời gian ấy.

Ví dụ
In between times, Serbia nearly responded when Sergej Milinkovic-Savic rose at the back post but powered his header into the side-netting.

"We gave her a bit of a break in between times, and we’ve been happy with her since she came back into work. This race at Awapuni on Saturday is definitely not her end goal. We’re just sending her there to try to further her education a little bit. She was pretty erratic (thất thường) in her first race, so we’re hoping to see a bit of improvement there.

In between times, however, the Wallabies won 13 straight at home, 10 out of 14 in Argentina and all three matches played at neutral venues. Generally speaking, Australian coaches would pencil in Rugby Championship wins against Argentina even before the start of the season, which perhaps explains why Michael Cheika went mental at half time in the sheds at Salta in 2018 when the Wallabies astonishingly found themselves 31-7 down. Post-spray, they put together a 38-3 second half to overhaul the Pumas 45-34. But once all the backslapping and brow-wiping had been attended to, the Wallabies and their supporters paused to reflect on how close they had come to disaster.

"Betwixt and between" nghĩa là gì?

"Betwixt and between" -> nghĩa là xung khắc, không thể quyết định giữa hai sự lựa chọn.

Ví dụ
On a pragmatic (thực dụng, thực tế) level, these fixed points which are lodged throughout Barbeau’s lyrics serve to orientate the listener, as the quietly confessional narrative unfolds betwixt and between the unlikely pairing of Berlin and Sacramento. But they also work to cultivate charm and mystery. All in all, Barbeau’s mastery of melody, playful obscurity, and the earworm place him in the venn diagram of the present, between White Fence, The Oh Sees, Ariel Pink, and Tim Burgess.

“The purpose of the capstone project is to challenge ourselves to do something we would not normally do; to go above and beyond our usual limits,” said Graceann. “My hope is to remind everyone that we all have the power to say and do things that can positively impact someone else’s life.” Graceann believes her artistic message is one that is uniquely applicable to middle school-age students, who find themselves betwixt and between childhood and young adulthood.

Gars En Noir is in great form. He’s a fine big horse but he’s only a novice until the end of this month so when December rings in he’s in open company. He’s a little bit betwixt and between as a four-year-old. Willie Mullins won’t go chasing with him as a four-year-old so he’s a chaser for this time next year who will run in this race. There is another race quite similar to this one at Limerick at Christmas and I imagine he will go there as well, but he is a horse for the future. He’s a horse we like but he has very few options over hurdles.

"Between the hammer and the anvil" nghĩa là gì?

"Between the hammer and the anvil" -> nghĩa là đối mặt với hai khó khăn/thách thức ngang nhau, tránh cái này thì đụng cái kia; 'trên đe dưới búa'.

Ví dụ
International engagement is not new for Mongolia — especially in military training and arms procurement (mua sắm vũ khí). But the current and future focus of its engagement needs to be on promoting peace in the region and beyond through global humanitarian operations. Far from just being between the hammer and the anvil, Mongolia has proven itself to be a contributor to global peace and stability and should continue on that path.

Many people do not know the extent of their abilities until they are put to the test. The best results occur when they are squeezed into a corner when it is a matter of life and death. Today, many survivors of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi passed through that stage of survival, where they found themselves between the hammer and the anvil.

Of course, similar principles apply to every economic activity that needs people to be physically present. That would include shipping, logistics and agriculture. For example, agriculture contributes 2% to 4% of GDP to southern EU countries, which is twice that of northern members. These governments are basically stuck between the hammer and the anvil – hence the need for urgent assistance.

"There is no daylight between" nghĩa là gì?

"There is no daylight between (two things)" = không có khoảng cách -> nghĩa là hai điều hoàn toàn liên quan với nhau.

Ví dụ
"This is 100% false. There is no truth to this report whatsoever," Miller tweeted. "[Chief of Staff] Meadows, Dave Bossie, Jared Kushner, Rudy [Giuliani], myself and everybody else are on the same page—we all work for Donald Trump and follow his lead, and there is no daylight between us."

Trump's team claims there is "no daylight" between them and the White House — chiefly senior adviser Jared Kushner and current Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. "We all have the same goal in mind, which is using the legal process over the next many days and weeks ahead to make sure that the president is re-elected," one adviser said.

This is not to say that there is no daylight between President Trump and Biden on Palestine. The Biden administration, for example, could reinstate U.S. aid for Palestinian refugees (người tị nạn), and it will allow the reopening of the Palestine Liberation Organization Mission Office in Washington; it also wants to include Palestinians back in negotiations (cuộc đàm phán).

"Between hay and grass" nghĩa là gì?

"Between hay and grass" = giữa cỏ khô và cỏ xanh -> nghĩa là rất khó/không thể phân loại.

Ví dụ
Our sound is broad, eclectic and between hay and grass. Is “Migajas” part of an album? When can we expect the rest? Yes, it is.

Women are multidimensional (đa chiều); we are between hay and grass as the world would like to have us seem. We are vines shaped every day by our experiences. We twist, turn, adapt, grow, and continually bloom through different seasons of life.

Abrupt changes (sự thay đổi đột ngột) to the microbial (thuộc vi khuẩn) families in faeces (cặn, phân) were chronicled in ponies undergoing sudden dietary (chế độ ăn uống) switches between grass and hay. Writing in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, researchers reported that a dietary change — either from grass or hay, or hay to grass — can have a profound effect within the first few days of transition (sự biến đổi).

"Be a go-between" nghĩa là gì?

"Be a go-between" = người đi giữa -> nghĩa là người đưa tin cho hai bên/nhóm.

Ví dụ
While each of the candidates say they are ready for the job, former Lt. Gov. Owen also noted the importance of the new lieutenant trung úy) governor being open to listen to constituents directly. “You should utilize your position of influence to be a go-between for people facing serious problems with government and the private sector,” Owen explained, although he cautioned that sometimes you can be successful and sometimes you can’t.

Divorce conflict can harm your children. Research shows that children who see their parents engaging in destructive conflict are more prone to mental health challenges, behavioral issues, and unhealthy relationships of their own. Involving your kids in conflict by encouraging them to be a go-between can also damage their relationships with both parents. Before, during, and after your divorce, try to avoid nasty fights or arguments in front of your kids and badmouthing (phỉ báng, bôi nhọ) the other parent behind their back.

“Luminal began back in 2016 mainly to address the needs of filmmakers, to address the struggle of not being able to really connect with their [intended] audiences,” John told Free Times. “Most Black filmmakers make their films for every audience but you know, with a specific like, especially like Black audience in mind, but what happens is, they don’t always get to reach the people, because if the people don’t come out to things like film festivals. So we decided to kind of be a go-between, to bridge the filmmakers and audiences.”

"A thin line between love and hate" nghĩa là gì?

"A thin line between love and hate" -> nghĩa là khoảng cách/sợi dây rất mỏng manh giữa yêu và ghét.

Ví dụ
Perhaps there really is a thin line between love and hate? With new head coach Nate Bjorkgren working closely with team management to assemble a staff of multi-taskers, ESPN’s Tim Bontempts reports that long-time Pacers defensive coordinator Dan Burke is headed further East to join the Philadelphia 76ers, also known as the team he once said he hated.

According to Radar Online, the two reconciled for good after Kunis decided to bury the hatchet following Kutcher's split from ex-wife Demi Moore. "She could see Ashton was going through a tough time and reached out to him," a source claimed in 2014. From there, their friendship bloomed into a full-fledged romance and their feelings turned into love — especially after the actor's divorce from Moore was finalized in November 2013. Kutcher and Kunis were engaged in February 2014, married in July 2015, and welcomed daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri in October 2014 and November 2016. You know what they say: there can be a thin line between love and hate!

Rather than dwelling on the circumstances of Snow’s death, Moments Like This ends with home video of him frolicking (vui nhộn, nô đùa) with his young daughter, Secret. Could the artist have found redemption if he had left New York and his circle of hangers-on and enablers? Dunn seems interested in the question. As LCD Soundsystem’s bittersweet “New York, I Love You” plays at the beginning of the film, Snow admits that although he loves the city, it’s “the worst place to be if you’re not happy there. It’s a thin line between love and hate.” Later, Fitzpatrick asks him if he ever thinks about leaving, and Snow imagines buying an island for himself and his friends— though he admits that plan, too, would just become part of the “never-ending spiral of weirdness.”

"What's between friends?"

"What's (something) between friends?" = giữa bạn bè với nhau mà -> nghĩa là đừng bận tâm tới số tiền tầm thường này làm gì vì mình là bạn bè, thường dùng để từ chối việc bạn bè muốn trả tiền cho bạn vì nó không bao nhiêu cả.

Ví dụ 
Saudi Aramco targeted by climate action investor group -What’s a few trillion (nghìn tỷ) between friends?

Who said TVs were getting cheaper? LG just declared that it would bring its 105-inch Ultra HD set to the U.S., and named its price at one hundred large. Well, $99,999, but what's a dollar between friends? Besides being, well, huge, LG's 105UC9 LCD TV is stretched out wider than your typical screen: It has an aspect ratio (tỷ lệ) of 21:9, intended to match the widest films at the cinema. That brings its total resolution to 5120 x 2160—11 million pixels. The TV incorporates a 150-watt sound system and, yes, it's curved.

"Keep it between the ditches" = giữ nó ở giữa các rãnh -> nghĩa là lái xe an toàn; hoặc hành xử phù hợp, tránh xa những rắc rối/sai lầm.

If in this world only we have hope. We are most cursed of men. Don’t cry for me ole buddy. I’m in a better place. Hold ‘em in the road and keep it between the ditches.

With Doug’s excellent leadership, he made a good farmer out of Evie with never fail instructions: “Please be seated in the tractor. Pay close attention.

Don’t forget to check the oil and fuel when necessary.”

Homes sales didn't hit the skids in April, just a patch of black ice, but everyone managed to keep it between the ditches. Like black ice, the effects of the coronavirus on housing were invisible at the end of March, although we expected hazardous (may rủi) conditions. Like people who hit black ice, keep it together and live to tell about it, everybody slowed down, kept a deft hand on the wheel and drew on experience.

"Hit right between the eyes" nghĩa là gì?

"Hit (one) (right) between the eyes" = đập ngay giữa mắt -> nghĩa là bỗng trở nên rõ rành rành với mình.

“I think it hit him right between the eyes this summer,” Swinney said. “He really worked his tail off, transformed, changed his body composition.

Howarth went on to enjoy a 30-plus-year career in FM radio and still does a Sunday morning show called “Acoustic Sunrise” on San Francisco’s KFOG. Monterey Pop, she said, hit her right between the eyes. Three weeks after the festival, she hitchhiked up to San Francisco and became one of legions (đội lính) of underage runaways arriving in the City, answering the clarion call of Scott McKenzie’s “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” – a song written by Monterey Pop co-producer John Phillips as a promotion for the festival.

My top pick in this race is drawn just to their outside. Edge of Fire (#3) hasn’t sprinted since his debut, which although it didn’t earn him a flashy speed figure was a very good performance, and I think he’s been crying out for a turnback in distance. In his second start he actually split the very talented Money Moves and Sprawl going a mile at Gulfstream Park, and he struck the front at one point only to fade a bit in the stretch. I think this distance is going to hit him right between the eyes and if he’s improved at all with age he’s going to be a major player.

"Consume mass quantities" nghĩa là gì?

"Consume mass quantities" = tiêu thụ lượng lớn -> nghĩa là ăn, uống rất nhiều. 

Ví dụ
Have fun this Halloween, be safe and we hope you get and consume mass quantities of the good candy. You know, the "fun size" stuff or bigger. Be sure you listen to the Wake Up Crew with Jim & Lisa weekdays from 6-10 AM on Kicker 102.5!

Chickadees and tits living above the Arctic circle consume mass quantities so they “have enough stored fat to keep their body temperature (nhiệt độ) above freezing throughout the long winter night.”

Dad also showed me how to keep score at basketball games. Years later, armed with that scorekeeping confidence and fascination with statistics, I had no trouble approaching the sports editor of my hometown newspaper for a job as a sports clerk/writer. Other dads might have taught their offspring (con cái) how to consume mass quantities of beer at Wrigley, mine, unwittingly, handed me the keys to a career.

Absinthe (áp xanh) is a high-proof spirit (45 percent to 70 percent ABV, typically) like tequila and gin, he said, so if you drink enough of it, your mind could enter a drunken stupor. “The truth is it’s a very tasty spirit that’s not hallucinogenic (gây ảo giác) unless you consume mass quantities of it,” Klebahn said, “and then it’s going to be just the strength of the alcohol that’s causing it.”

"Benevolent overlord" -> nghĩa là 'lãnh đạo nhân từ'.

Ví dụ
I've adopted all my pets over the years, and they all have their own quirky personalities (tính cách): they've been goofy, sweet, loyal, sometimes crabby (cáu kỉnh) but always lovable little companions -- even the cat who kind of wanted to murder my husband (but in a cute, "I'll someday take over the world and will not be a benevolent overlord" kind of way)

Thank you for being a kind and benevolent overlord of my safety. Thank you for shaming (làm ô nhục) me.... Long live Governor Overlord Polis. Will you come to my house and watch me eat and tell me if I am doing it correctly?

Apple might be getting into the podcast-making business. Is its reign (ngôi vị) as the industry’s benevolent overlord coming to an end? “There remains a lot we don’t know, and I have strong feeling we’re witnessing a little shard (mảnh vỡ) of a much larger, complicated soul-searching process.”

It also may depend on whether Apple will be a benevolent overlord or rule the MagSafe ecosystem with an iron fist, and we don’t know the answer to that yet. Magnets themselves aren’t proprietary (độc quyền), so theoretically case and mount makers could easily take advantage, and the Qi wireless charging standard also isn’t under Apple’s control.
