10 things Apple could be trying to tell us with the iPhone 'Gather round' invitation

Macworld - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 07:00

In case you missed it, Apple has sent out its annual iPhone event invitation, and as predicted by just about everyone, it’s set to take place on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at the new Apple Park campus.

Reading the tea leaves: Technologies Apple might be interested in

Macworld - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 06:00

It’s a good thing I’m a tea drinker, because we here in the Apple pundit business spend an awful lot of time trying to read the company’s tea leaves. At best, we can glean only the slightest of indications of what Apple might have in store; the company rarely makes public-facing moves, preferring to keep its cards close to its chest. 

In recent months, however, the company’s actually done a few things that could hint at some of its areas of interest over the next few years. Let’s take a quick look at those decisions and what they might mean for the future of Apple’s product lines—both the ones it has today, as well as the ones it might have tomorrow.

Myanmar struggles to digest global anger over Rohingya crisis

Top Stories - Fri, 08/31/2018 - 04:08

Baffled, hurt or indignant, many inside Myanmar are struggling to digest a week of opprobrium heaped on their country by the UN and even Facebook over the treatment of the Rohingya, a stateless Muslim group whose plight elicits little sympathy in the Buddhist-majority nation. Last year's military crackdown ostensibly on Rohingya militants pushed out some 700,000 of the minority in violence that horrified the world. A UN report on Monday pulled few punches in calling for the army chief's prosecution for genocide against the Rohingya and singled out Myanmar's democracy champion Aung San Suu Kyi for failing to speak up for the group.
