They're launched into a very low orbit (which I think is why they are initially so bright), then use ion engines to migrate up into their final orbit.starlink.com
Sign-ups available. I wonder if it will be available for me this year. The website is quite nebulous as to what they mean by "Northern US and Canada".

For the new macOS 11 Big Sur, all of the included apps are adding native ARM binaries. Xcode developers can "just open their apps and recompile" to get an ARM binary. Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop were demoed as native ARM apps. Final Cut Pro has an ARM version too, along with features that run on the "Neural Engine" in the Apple SoC.
