In recent years, Apple Inc. has quietly put together a global network of small research and development labs, from the French Alps to New Zealand.
Nothing unusual about that for a company that spends $11 billion a year on R&D. Look a little closer, however, and you'll notice that many of these labs are located near companies with a strong record in mapping, augmented reality and other areas Apple is pushing into. In several cases, these companies lost employees to Apple not long after the iPhone maker came to town. Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller declined to comment.
Apple today has shared a new advertisement for the iPhone 8 Plus touting the new Portrait Lighting feature.
“Part of the battle is teaching yourself you don't need these apps as much as you think you do,” Alter says. And it’s true. I no longer feel like I need the apps, but it’s nice to know I still want them.
Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and mobile app developer Bottle Rocket, Allis got the chance to live out his dream. He created a game called Planet SCRAM that made it to Apple's App Store.
It’s ideal for anyone armed with an iPad who fancies a spot of digital painting – and a robust, feature-rich, friendly environment in which to do so.
I've updated my Mac to High Sierra. (Hi!) I still miss the Mac OS X welcome video, with the big X. Even though it has been so long since the last one, the X is no longer in the name of the operating system.
Maybe iPhone X will have a welcome video with a big X. :-)
So far, no surprises in High Sierra for me. That's good.
Thanks for reading.
