So strap in and get comfortable, as we unpack the latest. Elsewhere, Marco Arment wrote a great piece on why the Mac Pro didn't meet the needs of nearly anyone who would want to use it. All eyes turn to the upcoming iMac Pro, since that's the design that seems to make the most sense. (Or they could bring back the cheese grater!)

In the zero waste video, Apple explains how none of its 14 final assembly facilities in China send any waste to landfills. The humorous video shows how the zero waste achievement supposedly started when Apple employee John Reynolds in iPhone Product Operations visited a factory in Guanlan, China.

Apple replaced the glass cube once before, back in 2011, when it was able to reduce the number of glass panes from 90 to just 15, resulting in a much cleaner look. But this time we’ve learned that the replacement cube may not look any different to the existing one …

Apple invention would facilitate an AR navigation...

Apple has applied for a patent (number 20170109929) for a “method and device for illustrating a virtual object in a real environment” that would allow the representation of a digital object in a real environment. The tech giant says this would be useful for augmented reality (AR) applications such as in vehicles, in interior design planning, factory planning, prototype construction or test construction in product development. 

One possible use of the invention is the change of a real room, for example in order to place virtual furnishings in said room for which free space is required. An advantage of augmented reality technology is the viewing of objects in their real environment — for example, the viewing of a wooden table on an existing wooden floor or in front of an existing cabinet. You could virtually remove spurious real furniture pieces from a scene or to change their position in the room without having to clear them aside physically.

Rumor: the iPhone will link with AR/VR headsets

A report from the Israeli website The Verifier — as noted by The MacObserver — says the upcoming “iPhone 8” will include an iPad Pro-like smart connector that may be the link up for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality headsets. The article adds that the smart connector will also be used for charging, sort of like MagSafe for the iPhone. 

The Sellers Research Firm (that’s me) says this isn’t going to happen. I do think the next gen iPhone will have AR features and a smart connector, but I don’t think Apple has any plans for AR/VR headsets at this point in time. Instead, I think the iPhone 8 will have AR features available directly from its display.

China To Question Apple About Live-Streaming Apps On...

Three Chinese government agencies are planning to tell Apple to "tighten up checks" on live-streaming software offered on its app store, which can be used to violate internet regulation in the country. "Law enforcement officers had already met with Apple representatives over live-streaming services, [state news agency Xinhua reported], but did not provide details of the meetings," reports The Guardian. From the report: The inquiry appears to be focused on third-party apps available for download through Apple's online marketplace. The company did not respond to requests for comment. China operates the world's largest internet censorship regime, blocking a host of foreign websites including Google, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but the authorities have struggled to control an explosion in popularity of live-streaming video apps. As part of the inquiry into live-streaming, three Chinese websites -- toutiao.com, huoshanzhibo.com and huajiao.com -- were already found to have violated...

Don’t get your hopes up for an Apple Car just yet (...

Don’t get your hopes up yet that Apple is making its own auto from scratch. Forbes reported Wednesday that — as I’ve suspected — the tech giant seems to be more interested in developing apps for self-driving cars than the cars themselves.

Apple Car rumors revived when it was reported that the California Department of Motor Vehicles had granted permits for Apple to test autonomous cars in California. However, Forbes says that those vehicles are three 2015 Lexus RX 450h hybrid SUVs. Industry analysts say the fact that only three vehicles are involved suggests the company is focusing on its CarPlay connectivity and infotainment...

Apple commits to 100% recycled materials; Greenpeace...

Apple has announced its major new commitment to tackle the environmental impact caused by electronics production, becoming the first major IT company to commit to using 100% recycled materials for its products. In response to the announcement, Greenpeace Senior IT Analyst Gary Cook had this to say:

“Apple’s commitment to 100% recycled materials is ambitious, and highlights the need for greater urgency across the sector to reduce resource consumption and e-waste that are causing significant impacts on the environment and human health.  Transitioning to non-virgin raw materials will help to decrease the demand for mined metals and other inputs, and increase recycling rates of electronics directly.

“This commitment, and Apple’s recent progress in transitioning its supply chain in Asia to renewable energy, puts it far ahead of others in the sector. Major IT brands such as Samsung, Huawei, and Microsoft should quickly match Apple’s leadership, if they don’t want risk...

Apple Maps update, now includes EV charging stations...

It’s a quiet update, but this could be useful.

Apple on Wednesday updated its Apple Maps data, including EV charging stations and bicycle rental/dropoff points, focusing most of its expanded coverage in Europe.

For U.K. users, electric car drivers can now locate charging stations via data from Moovility. The public bicycle information currently covers London and Paris, and one U.S. city, New York.

Apple first began identifying EV chargers in Maps in July 2016, as a result of a deal with Parkopedia. That improved further with the addition of ChargePoint stations in December.

The Maps application can now locate bike rental outlets, although Google Maps is thought to have the advantage in this regard, the service featuring pickup and dropoff locations in several countries.

Future enhancements may include indoor mapping and better car navigation, as well as more regular content updates thanks to drones.

Stay tuned for additional details as...

New Apple Park footage emerges, shows finishing...

With Apple set to start moving employees into its new Apple Park campus come May, new drone footage from Duncan Sinfield shows construction workers putting the finishing touches on both the interior and exterior of the building.

The footage also shows progress being made on planting trees and other greenery across the 175 acre Cupertino campus.

The video also shows a close look at some of the parking amenities at Apple Park, and there’s expected to be a lot of it. The Steve Jobs Theater is also featured with a closeup and overhead view.

The video concludes with footage of Apple Park glowing in the dark, showing that work continues from dawn to dusk to get Apple Park ready for employees. The nighttime footage also shows just how big and bright Apple Park is already, and it will only seem bigger once construction is complete and all the lights are turned on.

As always, let us know what you make of the footage in the comments.

The other two likely will be upgrades to the two existing iPhones. The new design will incorporate curved glass and stainless steel. It will increase the surface area of the display without increasing the size of the phone.

Google may build ad-blocking into Chrome

Google makes a lot of money from online advertisements. In what appears to be a surprising move at first glance, the company is likely to introduce an ad blocking feature that could be turned on by default in desktop and mobile versions of its Chrome browser, according to a news report.

The move by Google is seen as more defensive rather than a change of heart by the company on the issue of ad blockers, reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the company’s plans.

By bundling its own ad blocker as a feature in Chrome, the most popular browser according to Net Market Share, the company appears to be expecting users to use the default blocker rather than the blockers that have proliferated on the market. It will then allow only certain acceptable ads to be shown, according to the Journal, which...

Facebook wants people to type from their brain and...

Facebook revealed Wednesday that it is working on technology to let people type straight from their brains at 100 words per minute.

A team of over 60 scientists, engineers and others at its secretive Building 8 research lab are working in the area Facebook describes as silent speech communications. Another project is directed at allowing people to hear with their skin, for which the company is building the necessary hardware and software.

“So what if you could type directly from your brain?” Regina Dugan, vice president of engineering and Building 8, asked Wednesday at F8, Facebook’s annual two-day developer conference.

For Facebook, the question seems to be far from speculative. “Over the next 2 years, we will be building systems that demonstrate the capability to type at 100 wpm by decoding neural activity devoted to speech,” Dugan...

The Tenda AV1000 is a useful, easy-to-install...

Nothing beats a wired connection when you need (or simply want) a really fast network connection. That means either cutting into walls or usingPowerline Communication such as found in the Tenda AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Adapter.

Powerline Communication (PLC) is a communication technology that enables sending data over existing power cables. This means that, with just power cables running to an electronic device, for example, one can both power it up and at the same time control/retrieve data from it in a half-duplex manner.

With a Powerline network adapter kit, such as the Tenda AV1000 (about $60 for the Starter Kit), you buy a basic kit, which comes with two Powerline adapters and two Ethernet cables. You connect one of the Ethernet cables (mine is one from Comcast) to your router and to the first of the adapters. Then you plug it into the nearest power socket. You click the second Ethernet cable...

iPhone owners are largely satisfied with Apple's CarPlay, according to a new report from market research firm Strategy Analytics.

31 percent of users said they were "very satisfied" with CarPlay, while 54 percent said they were "satisfied," for an overall customer satisfaction rate of 85 percent. However, the report only looked at 70 owners of 2016-2017 vehicles with CarPlay installed in the United States, which is a rather small sample size.

Qualcomm said on Wednesday that Apple's contract manufacturers including Foxconn paid royalties, although they withheld around $1 billion from the undisclosed total amount due. The amount withheld equaled the amount Qualcomm withheld from Apple last year under a separate agreement to cooperate on mobile technology that has since expired.

Hands-on: eGPU enclosure + GTX 1080 Ti w/ MacBook...

After last week’s exciting release of Nvidia’s beta Pascal drivers for Mac, I was looking forward to trying the top of the line consumer GPU with my MacBook Pro. That GPU is none other than the venerable GeForce GTX 1080 Ti — a $700 card with 11 Gbps of GDDR5X memory and a 11 GB frame buffer. Needless to say this card is one that will interest those looking to push their games to the next level.

I took the time to install my EVGA GTX 1080 Ti FE inside of my Akitio Node external GPU enclosure. After connecting the unit to my 2016 MacBook Pro via a Thunderbolt 3 cable, all it took was a simple Terminal script and a reboot to get the unit working with a (required in macOS) external display.

He went on to found J Records, and then served as CEO and chairman of RCA Music Group.

At the current time, Davis is the chief creative officer at Sony Music Entertainment. Davis has influenced many important music artists over the course of his career, including Whitney Houston, Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, Santana, Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, and more."...

“Climate change is undeniable. Earth’s resources won’t last forever. And technology must be safe for people to make and use. We don’t question these realities — we challenge ourselves to ask what we can do about them in every part of our business.”

New Drone Footage Shows Nearly Complete Apple Park...

Apple Park, Apple's second campus in Cupertino, California, is set to have its grand opening this month, and ahead of its official debut, last minute construction and landscaping is continuing on at a rapid pace.

As part of a mid-month update, drone pilot Duncan Sinfield has shared a new video of Apple Park, this time getting some gorgeous nighttime shots of the campus lit up at night. In the evenings, the lights on the ring-shaped main building stay on, and it's an impressive sight.

The nighttime shots are towards the end of the video, which also shows the completed parking structures, landscaping work with hundreds of trees being planted, final construction on the main building, furniture installation, and more.

While employees are set to start working at Apple Park at some point in April, landscaping and construction on auxiliary buildings will continue into the summer.

Apple to Dismantle Iconic Glass Cube at Fifth Avenue...

Apple will soon dismantle and remove the iconic glass cube entrance at its Fifth Avenue Apple Store in Manhattan, New York, which is in the process of being renovated and expanded.

On March 16, Apple filed a permit for the "full removal of the glass cubical structure at the Apple Store entrance," which, according to BuildZoom, was granted on April 17. The removal of the cube will cost Apple $2 million, and according to a second source, could commence on May 9.

Apple is planning to expand its Fifth Avenue store to double the size of the original location. The store is growing from 32,000 square feet to 77,000 square feet, giving Apple more space at its flagship New York location.

It is not yet clear what Apple is planning to do with the cube. It could be temporarily removed to allow for construction underneath, or the company could have bigger cube renovation plans in mind.

MacRumors speculates that it was due to a server hiccup and that the messages were sent by mistake. As of this writing, a related issue is that many users can’t purchase upgraded iCloud storage tiers.
