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

Samsung has reaffirmed its belief that the Galaxy S9 duo will outperform the S8 phones by announcing its plans to ship 43 million units this year – that’s for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ combined. Korean publication The Bell reports that Samsung has given this target to its component suppliers. For the first quarter, Samsung expects 12 million units to leave the factories, then 13 million, then 10 million and finally, 8 million in the last three months of 2018. Some adjustments may be made going forward. That’s slightly higher than the 41 million Galaxy S8/S8+ units that the company…

Snap Inc. is doubling down on its losses, looks to ship two new versions of Spectacles in 2018 and 2019

Oh, Snap. Read that in a voice filled with pity and bewilderment to get the tone here, because the company behind Snapchat is apparently pushing more of its chips into the financial black hole that is its Spectacles. Yes, Snap Inc. is on tilt and has plans for not one, but two new pairs of its eyewear despite lukewarm interest for the first version of the product.

According to Cheddar, Snap is aiming to release the second generation of Spectacles this fall.

Apple’s AirPower wireless charging pad will reportedly ship in March


Apple’s wireless charging pad, dubbed AirPower, will likely ship in March, according to a new report from the generally reliable Japanese blog MacOtakara. While Apple pre-announced the multi-device Qi charging accessory last September with an ambiguous 2018 release date, the blog suggests that its development cycle may have been prolonged due to special challenges in charging the Apple Watch Series 3.

AirPower is designed to simultaneously refuel 2017 or newer iPhones and Apple Watches, as well as 2016 AirPods when the devices are placed inside an upcoming wireless charging case. Although the concept seems simple — place up to three devices wherever you want on the white pill-shaped surface — the engineering was apparently difficult. For one thing, iPhones demand more power than AirPods and Apple Watches, and any of the devices might be placed anywhere on the pad.

MacOtakara suggests that extra engineering was needed to enable Apple Watch Series 3 charging using the Qi-based AirPower. The Apple Watch’s convex back was originally designed only to charge with non-Qi concave magnetic chargers, versus a flat Qi surface. AirPower apparently uses a special radio signal to detect the latest Apple Watch and enable it to charge over Qi — a feature that “can be used only by Apple,” according to the report.

Apple has not divulged pricing for AirPower, but some have speculated that the pad may sell for an astounding $ 199, based on a placeholder price listed last November on a Polish website. The Apple Store currently sells Apple-made wireless Apple Watch charging cables for $ 29 and third-party wireless iPhone charging pads for $ 60, suggesting that a three-device charger would likely go for less. AirPower is expected to be available simultaneously in Apple and third-party retail stores.

Tim Cook: Apple is already working on products that won’t ship until the 2020s

Tim Cook Interview

Earlier this week, Apple was named the most innovative company in the world by Fast Company. Hardly a surprise, Apple over the last 12 months introduced a number of compelling new products, not the least of which was the iPhone X, an arguably revolutionary device that completely re-imagined what the smartphone user experience should be.

Alongside Apple’s #1 ranking, Tim Cook sat down for a wide-ranging interview with the publication where he touched on a number of interesting topics, including Apple’s financial situation and how the company plans to keep raising the bar for tech innovation in the years ahead.

One of the more interesting tidbits from Cook’s interview centered on Apple’s need to find a balance between researching and developing products and actually releasing something to market.

“You have to have a forcing function,” Cook explained. “For us, on the product side, we have to come up with our silicon requirements three, four-plus years in advance. So we’ve got things that we’re working on now that are way out in the 2020s.”

When asked about how Apple tends to be misunderstood in the media, Cook emphasized that the company is dedicated to making great products, not blindly making money at all costs. Though some cynics might understandably scoff at such a notion, Cook’s comments align with previous comments from Jony Ive and Steve Jobs who have said that Apple only focuses on generating cash as to have the luxury of developing game-changing products.

For a casual observer who hasn’t been a user of our products, the thing that they might miss is how different Apple is versus other technology companies. A financial person just looking at revenues and profits may think, They’re good [at making money]. But that’s not who we are. We’re a group of people who are trying to change the world for the better, that’s who we are. For us, technology is a background thing. We don’t want people to have to focus on bits and bytes and feeds and speeds. We don’t want people to have to go to multiple [systems] or live with a device that’s not integrated. We do the hardware and the software, and some of the key services as well, to provide a whole system.

Cook’s full interview can be enjoyed over here.
