That’s it folks — the last of the cheers have died down and Apple CEO Tim Cook has been packed away until the next big event. The WWDC keynote is over, but it’s left us with an awful lot to unpack. In fact, with all the information Apple squeezed into less than two and a half hours, we might need until next WWDC to digest it all properly. With information on new versions of all Apple’s operating systems — including a brand new one — and the launch of the new and incredible looking Mac Pro, here’s absolutely everything we saw at the WWDC 2019 keynote presentation. MacOS Catalina MacOS 10.15 is coming, and it’s called Catalina. The biggest announcement was arguably that of SideCar. SideCar gives MacOS the ability to use an iPad as a second screen. Users can move windows and tasks onto your iPad screen and interact with it exactly as if it was a second monitor. Unlike a second monitor though, the iPad retains its Apple Pencil support, so you … [Read more...] about WWDC 2019: Here’s everything Apple announced, from iPadOS to the new Mac Pro
Handle with care It’s Apple’s big day in the spotlight with their annual WWDC developers event, but it’s Microsoft’s latest acquisition that’s making headlines. Redmond confirmed today that it will acquire GitHub, a locus for computer software developers, coders, and even whole companies working on and testing super-technical projects. Think of it as a sort of super-nerdy Dropbox. Satya Nadella and company reportedly dropped $7.5 billion on the deal, even though GitHub was valued at only about $2 billion just three years ago. So what changed? For one, Microsoft’s GitHub competitor, Codeplex, was a non-starter and died late last year, and Microsoft is currently one of the largest users of GitHub, so it kind of makes sense. Some GitHub users have said the deal is the beginning of the end of GitHub, but Satya Nadella says they will work to preserve its geek cred and be “stewards” of the hallowed service, which is just over 10 years old. … [Read more...] about Microsoft puts GitHub in its cart. Will it suffer same fate as Skype and Nokia?
Tesla has a history of making boastful statements about its cars. It famously referred to the Model 3 as the safest car on earth until the American government asked it to stop making misleading assertions. Company co-founder and CEO Elon Musk, however, has now shown a surprising amount of humility by setting aside industry rivalries to congratulate a rival. Posting on Twitter, his favorite social media platform, Musk praised the battery-electric Mustang Mach E (pictured) that Ford introduced during an event held on Sunday, November 17. The tweet came with an odd twist of irony, because Ford’s first dedicated electric model is aimed directly at the Model Y scheduled to enter production alongside the Model 3 in 2020. “Congratulations on the Mach E! Sustainable/electric cars are the future! Excited to see this announcement from Ford, as it will encourage other carmakers to go electric, too,” the executive wrote. Seeing one of the automotive industry’s leaders … [Read more...] about Elon Musk sets aside rivalries to praise one of Tesla’s competitors
Previous Next 1 of 3 Seven years have passed since Double Robotics launched its first telepresence robot, a device that we speculated at the time could transform the way interactions take place between offices and remote workers around the world. But it didn’t happen. This was largely because the first Double telepresence robot was little more than an iPad on wheels, a machine that wasn’t the easiest to control, and one that came with few features. Jump forward two iterations and we now have something a good deal more advanced than the original design, a robot that you might well imagine one day rolling around the workplace as remote workers catch up with their team at HQ. Really. The all-new Double 3, unveiled by San Francisco-based Double Robotics on Tuesday, August 27, still uses a kind of pared-down Segway to get around, but does away with the iPad and replaces it with updated smarts powered by the Nvidia Jetson TX2 platform, two Intel RealSense … [Read more...] about The Double 3 telepresence robot is now much more than an iPad on wheels
