Apple Reportedly in Talks With PlayNitride Over Thinner and Brighter MicroLED Displays

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple is in preliminary talks with Taiwan-based company PlayNitride over cooperation in the MicroLED market, according to DigiTimes via Micro-LED-Info.


While the report doesn’t provide any further details about the potential partnership, PlayNitride has developed its own MicroLED displays called PixeLED that may be of interest to Apple for its future products. Samsung was also reportedly interested in the company back in early 2017, but no deal transpired.

PlayNitride is said to have received approval from the Taiwanese government to establish a multimillion-dollar facility at Hsinchu Science Park in northern Taiwan, where it will produce its MicroLED technologies.

Apple’s interest in MicroLED displays was first reported in 2015, when it was discovered that the company opened a secretive laboratory in Taoyuan, Taiwan to research the display technology. Since then, Apple has reportedly downsized its team in Taiwan and shifted the efforts closer to its headquarters.

Last month, Bloomberg News reported that Apple has a secret facility in Santa Clara, California, near Cupertino, where it is allegedly designing and producing test samples of its own MicroLED displays. The displays are reportedly being manufactured by TSMC, which already produces A-series chips for iPhones.

MicroLED is widely considered to be Apple’s next step after OLED, which it currently uses for the Apple Watch and iPhone X.

MicroLED displays have many of the same advantages as OLED displays have over LCDs, including improved color accuracy, improved contrast ratio, faster response times, and true blacks given both have self-lit pixels, but they are even thinner, much brighter, and more energy efficient than OLED panels.

Apple’s use of MicroLED would likely start small, with the Apple Watch, followed by iPhones and then iPads. A recent report said Apple may even use MicroLED for its widely rumored augmented reality glasses. However, the transition away from LCDs and OLEDs is widely believed to be at least a few years away.

LG is reportedly supplying OLED screens for Huawei’s $2,100 Mate RS

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

LG has made OLED screens in small numbers over the years, but it spun up large-scale OLED production about a year ago. Google apparently wanted to get in on the ground floor, so it invested in LG’s new OLED operations. So far, it’s just been LG, Xiaomi, and Google using the latest LG OLEDs, but a new report claims Huawei is using them on the new Mate RS.

Huawei announced the Porsche Design Mate RS last week, leaving us all aghast at the exorbitant pricing.

Apple reportedly plans to ditch Intel’s processors entirely by 2020

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND


Apple has been developing specialized chips for handling certain functions in its phones and computers for the past couple of years, and it’s now planning to take things up a notch: Bloomberg reports that the company is gearing up to make all its processors in-house by 2020, and ditch its long-time supplier Intel in the bargain. That could be huge for Apple – and maybe not the end of the world for Intel, which has been supplying the Cupertino-based firm with processor tech since 2005. Apple’s business accounts for just 5 percent of Intel’s revenue, so it wouldn’t be a…

Apple reportedly moving to in-house Mac chips in 2020

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

According to a new report, Apple is planning on changing the processors it uses in its Macs in the next few years. Currently, the company exclusively employs Intel processors in all of its Macs, but starting with 2020 Mac models, it will reportedly be utilizing its own chips instead.

From Bloomberg:

The initiative, code named Kalamata, is still in the early developmental stages, but comes as part of a larger strategy to make all of Apple’s devices — including Macs, iPhones, and iPads — work more similarly and seamlessly together, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. The project, which executives have approved, will likely result in a multi-step transition.

Apple currently designs the processors that reside in the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Apple TV, and HomePod. These devices all utilize A-series processors, a line first used in 2010 with the introduction of the first iPad, followed later that year by the iPhone 4.

A switch away from Intel processors to its own custom silicon would be the second such transition that Apple undertook in the last 20 years. The first was in 2006 when the company began transitioning Macs from PowerPC chips to Intel chips with the launch of its first Intel Macs, including the very first model of MacBook Pro.

Niantic Will Reportedly Settle the ‘Pokemon GO’ Fest Lawsuit for over $1.5 Million

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

You’re probably aware of how big a disaster the Pokemon GO [Free] Fest was in Chicago. Eli was at the fest and was posting updates as the situation progressed. Niantic apologized for the event and posted about how they worked with a partner who spoke to major carriers to ensure everything goes smooth. Things obviously didn’t turn out well and some people sued. We hadn’t heard anything about this until now and it looks like Niantic is going to settle it and a dedicated website will go live for the settlement.

A TechCrunch report has now been published stating that Niantic will finally settle the lawsuit by paying out over $ 1.5 million dollars. This is to cover the costs attendees picked up on the way to the event including hotel costs, airplane tickets, pariking fees, and more. An official website is supposed to go up for the settlement. People claiming to be a part of the settlement will need to have been checked in at the fest.

Any money left over after all claims and lawyer fees in addition to other costs will be split evenly and donated to the non profit organization Chicago Run and the Illinois Bar foundation. No money will come back to Niantic as per the report. If you missed out on the fest, read up here on what actually went down.
