Gorilla Glass Maker Corning Gets $200 Million From...

An anonymous reader quotes a report from TechCrunch: Apple made news and scored some positive PR earlier this month when the company announced a $1 billion fund aimed at investing in U.S.-based manufacturing. Now it's ready to announce the first big investment from its Advanced Manufacturing Fund. New York-based Corning Incorporated will be receiving $200 million from the tech giant's coffers, money that will go toward its Harrodsburg, Kentucky R&D facility. Corning is a logical first choice for Apple. The two companies have worked closely for roughly a decade, when Apple first pushed Corning to create a chemically strengthened glass for the iPhone. The resulting product, Gorilla Glass, has since become the standard for nearly every smartphone maker out there. As Apple helpfully adds in a news release touting the funding, the relationship thus far "has created and sustained nearly 1,000 U.S. jobs across Corning's R&D, manufacturing and commercial functions, including over...

Nvidia Embraces Deep Neural Nets With Volta


At this year's GPU Technology Conference, Nvidia's premier conference for technical computing with graphic processors, the company reserved the top keynote for its CEO Jensen Huang. Over the years, the GTC conference went from a segment in a larger, mostly gaming-oriented and somewhat scattershot conference called "nVision" to become one of the key conferences that mixes academic and commercial high-performance computing. Jensen's message was that GPU-accelerated machine learning is growing to touch every aspect of computing.

If Apple's reimagined 2016 MacBook Pros have done anything to make an impact, this is it -- they've certainly stimulated the market for third-party accessories that make up for the shortcomings of the entirely Thunderbolt 3/USB-C design. Satechi today released the new Aluminum Type-C Pro Hub Adapter for 2016 MacBook Pro 13" and 15", a relative bargain at $99.99.

Available in both Space Gray and Silver, the device plugs into both USB Type-C ports on the side of a 2016 MacBook Pro and then provides a Thunderbolt 3 port, USB-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, 4K HDMI out, and both SD and microSD card readers. 

The Pro Hub provides pass-through charging for the 13-inch (61 watts) and 15-inch (87 watts) models, and two of the Hubs can be in used at the same time (one on either side of the MacBook Pro) in order to drive two 4K HDMI displays simultaneously. The Pro Hub is available today...

Apple wasted no time putting its $1 billion U.S. manufacturing fund to work, announcing Friday that it will invest $200 million into Corning’s Harrodsburg, Kentucky glass-making plant.

Corning, as everyone knows, manufactures the glass that Apple has used in iPhones and iPads since day one.

“Corning is a great example of a supplier that has continued to innovate and they are one of Apple’s long-standing suppliers,” Apple COO Jeff Williams said in a Friday statement announcing the investment. “This partnership started 10 years ago with the very first iPhone, and today every customer that buys an iPhone or iPad anywhere in the world touches glass that was developed in America. We’re extremely proud of our collaboration over the years and we are investing further with Corning who has such a rich legacy of innovative manufacturing practices.”...

Autocorrect can be a mixed blessing.

But one of its real strengths is the ability to save typing effort. We can create our own abbreviations that then expand out into the full phrase or sentence. TextExpander is a cloud-based service that uses the same concept, but is, to borrow a phrase, insanely powerful …

BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski reports that Apple and Amazon have reached an agreement that will bring Amazon Prime Video to the Apple TV and put the Apple TV back in Amazon’s store. The deal will reportedly be announced at the WWDC keynote next month. Recode previously reported on the agreement, making it sufficiently substantial to pass on. If the rumor turns out to be true, the Apple TV’s content lineup will become significantly more compelling. The agreement also raises the broader question of whether Apple is adjusting some App Store policies to be more accommodating to competing digital retailers.

Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet, the parent
company of Google, are not just the largest technology companies
in the world. As I’ve argued repeatedly in my column, they are
also becoming the most powerful companies of any kind, essentially
inescapable for any consumer or business that wants to participate
in the modern world. But which of the Frightful Five is most
unavoidable? I ponder the question in my column this week.

But what about you? If an evil monarch forced you to choose, in
what order would you give up these inescapable giants of tech?

An anonymous reader writes: The company that once held a mock funeral for the iPhone -- complete with dedicated "iPhone trashcans" -- now has a very different attitude about the company of Jobs. The Microsoft whose old CEO Steve Ballmer in 2007 famously predicted the iPhone had "no chance; no chance at all" of getting market share, now readily accepts and embraces a world where the iPhone and Android dominate personal computing. Microsoft talked a lot here at its Build 2017 developer conference about extending Windows experiences over to iOS and Android devices. And it's not just about fortifying Windows. Microsoft says it not only wants to connect with those foreign operating systems, but by bringing over functionality from Windows 10 (along with content) it hopes to "make those other devices better," as one Microsoft rep said in a press briefing yesterday. The developers here at Build cheered when Microsoft announced XAML Standard 1.0, which provides a single markup language to...

The eHeart study at the University of California, San Francisco has shown that a “deep neural network” fed data from the Apple Watch app Cardiogram was 97 percent accurate in detecting the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm, paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Paroxysmal atrial fibrillation causes about 25 percent of strokes and two-thirds of those strokes are preventable with relatively inexpensive drugs, making this potentially life-saving news. Cardiogram and UCSF plan to further validate the neural network’s findings against external data and incorporate the results into the Cardiogram app itself. The team also intends to see if the system can detect health conditions beyond atrial fibrillation.

Sarah Buhr, TechCrunch:

According to a study conducted through heartbeat measurement app Cardiogram and the University of California, San Francisco, the Apple Watch is 97 percent accurate in detecting the most common abnormal heart rhythm when paired with an AI-based algorithm.

The study involved 6,158 participants recruited through the Cardiogram app on Apple Watch. Most of the participants in the UCSF Health eHeart study had normal EKG readings. However, 200 of them had been diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (an abnormal heartbeat). Engineers then trained a deep neural network to identify these abnormal heart rhythms from Apple Watch heart rate data.

Apple has announced that Corning Inc. will receive $200 million from the company’s new Advanced Manufacturing Fund as part of the tech giant’s commitment to foster innovation among American manufacturers. 

Corning is an American manufacturer of glass, ceramics, and related materials, primarily for industrial and scientific applications. It’s been one of the main suppliers to Apple since working with Steve Jobs in 2007 to develop the iPhone.

The investment will support Corning’s R&D, capital equipment needs and state-of-the-art glass processing. Corning's 65-year-old Harrodsburg facility has been integral to the 10-year collaboration between these two innovative companies and will be the focus of Apple’s investment. 

“Corning is a great example of a supplier that has continued to innovate and they are one of Apple's long-standing suppliers,” Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer, said in a press release. “This partnership started 10 years ago with...

Apple wearables sales outpacing iPhone out of the...

Neil Cybart, Above Avalon:

According to Apple’s most recent earnings and management commentary, the company sold more than five million wearable devices last quarter. When combined, Apple Watch, AirPods, and W1 chip-enabled Beats headphones are now outselling Mac in terms of unit sales. More impressively, Apple wearables are tracking ahead of iPhone in terms of unit sales out of the gate. As competitors continue to approach wearables with caution, Apple is doubling down.

Unit sales, not total revenue, but still impressive. Nice job by Neil pulling this together. Take a look at the chart labeled Exhibit 2, which does a nice job putting all this into perspective.

Comment: Seven years on from Steve Jobs’ ‘Thoughts...

It’s now seven years since Steve Jobs wrote his famous Thoughts on Flash open letter, in which he explained to Adobe the six reasons why Apple did not allow Flash on iOS devices. These reasons were, in brief:

  • It’s a proprietary product, and Apple prefers open web standards [sometimes]
  • An increasing number of websites are switching to better video formats
  • Flash has poor security, reliability and performance
  • Flash decreases battery life
  • Flash was designed for desktop, not touch
  • It’s an additional layer that holds back innovation

Most of those reasons are just as valid today, security not least among them …

Why Apple had to borrow $98 billion

CNBC:

According to FactSet, as of the end of the first quarter of 2017, Apple has taken on more than $98 billion in debt.

And:

Apple generates cash flows of nearly $40 billion every six months. It’s the richest company in the world, with more than $256.8 billion in cash and marketable securities sitting on its books.

Why does such a rich company have to borrow money?

And:

As of the end of 2016, Apple had more than $230 billion stored overseas. That’s because, when Apple earns money from sales outside the U.S., it’s taxed once by the country where it makes those sales, then taxed again by the U.S. when it brings the money back home. As a result, Apple doesn’t bring that money home.

This from Tim Cook, in his recent interview with Jim Cramer:

If you sell globally, you earn money globally. If you earn money globally, you can’t bring it back into the United States unless you pay 35 percent plus your state tax. And you look at this...

And:

Apple has committed to investing at least $1 billion with US-based companies as part of the fund, which is designed to foster innovative production and highly skilled jobs that will help lay the foundation for a new era of technology-driven manufacturing in the US.

Logical investment in a company whose fortunes are tightly bound with yours.

Future versions of Siri may support ‘unconventional...

Future versions of Siri — its “personal digital assistant” — may sound like, and respond to, more natural language thanthe somewhat structured interaction of the present. Apple has filed for a patent (number 20170132199) for “unconventional virtual assistant interactions.”

In the patent filing, Apple says that a digital assistant (Siri) can be helpful in remembering calendar events or other reminders that have been set specifically by a user. It also can be helpful in generating a recommendation based on a user request and on third-party reviews that are publicly available. 

However, Apple says that digital assistants generally have not been useful in handling unconventional interactions, such as interactions with users other than a primary user, interactions with other virtual assistants, complex interactions, and interactions with physical entities. What’s more, such assistants generally haven’t been useful in performing tasks that are spread out in time, or that...

Rumor: Apple buying up large quantities of 3D camera...

Apple is apparently buying up all the 3D camera component components it can for its next-gen iPhone.

The current rumor has it that the upcoming handset will feature a 3D camera with facial recognition capabilities and that LG Innotek has been acting as the supplier of these parts.

The rumor also coincides with a report that LG Innotek has invested $238.5 million in a facility just for Apple’s orders. Apple’s initial order is worth about $177 million.

Apple and LG Innotek joined forces last year to developer a new 3D camera system for smartphones. This technology could also detect adjustable depth of field photography and be used for facial recognition.

Another report says Apple plans to use a camera coupled with infrared sensors to create 3D facial maps. Those scans could be used for facial recognition along with real time 3D mapping for avatars and 3D selfies.

If implemented, Apple could possibly use this technology as a form of biometric...

Apple Watch could help detect signs of atrial...

This could be helpful, if not potentially life-saving.

A team of researchers just proved that the Apple Watch’s heart rate sensor can actually detect an early sign of heart disease without any symptoms at all, a development that could change how people use their Apple Watches.

The sensor can accurately detect atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rate that can lead to stroke or heart disease. While atrial fibrillation can be caused by a variety of factors, including high blood pressure, this doesn’t qualify the Apple Watch as a diagnostic device. Still, its accurate heart rate sensor shows there is potential for the watch as a health and fitness tool beyond its basic fitness-tracking features.

Developers of the Cardiogram app worked with researchers from the University of California San Francisco’s Health eHeart study and Apple’s ResearchKit to develop their own app, known as “mRhythm”. On Thursday, Cardiogram and UCSF’s cardiology division presented the...

Apple Watch Can Detect An Abnormal Heart Rhythm With...

According to a study conducted through heartbeat measurement app Cardiogram and the University of California, San Francisco, the Apple Watch is 97 percent accurate in detecting the most common abnormal heart rhythm when paired with an AI-based algorithm. TechCrunch reports: The study involved 6,158 participants recruited through the Cardiogram app on Apple Watch. Most of the participants in the UCSF Health eHeart study had normal EKG readings. However, 200 of them had been diagnosed with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (an abnormal heartbeat). Engineers then trained a deep neural network to identify these abnormal heart rhythms from Apple Watch heart rate data. Cardiogram began the study with UCSF in 2016 to discover whether the Apple Watch could detect an oncoming stroke. About a quarter of strokes are caused by an abnormal heart rhythm, according to Cardiogram co-founder and data scientist for UCSF's eHeart study Brandon Ballinger. Cardiogram tested the deep neural network it had...
