Apple’s former retail stores: Where are they now?

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

Over this past holiday weekend, T-Mobile opened a new Signature Store in the heart of downtown San Francisco. While the shop’s bright magenta signage doesn’t betray the building’s past, Apple fans may remember the site at the corner of Stockton and Ellis streets as the former home of Apple’s flagship San Francisco store.

After nearly 17 years operating their own retail stores, many of Apple’s older locations have been remodeled and expanded as the company outgrows smaller spaces and changing technology commands an ever-evolving store layout. Many stores have relocated altogether, moving to larger and more desirable mall corridors, or across town to livelier shopping districts with greater foot traffic. What happens to these old storefronts after Apple moves out? We’ve tracked down every former Apple store to see what they look like today.

EU residents now have access to the same online content anywhere in the EU as they do back home, but that’s not necessarily a good thing

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

Anyone who’s traveled to another country knows how frustrating it is to be geoblocked from streaming content that’s available back at home. Due to licensing restrictions, content providers like Netflix aren’t always able to provide the same viewing experience across different countries, and so some countries get access to a worse content library than others. Hypothetically, this shouldn’t happen within the European Common Market (to which the European Union belongs), which seeks to “guarantee the free movement of goods, capital, services, and labour,” but in reality there’s always some gap between theory and practice.

Pruitt’s EPA Will Give Automakers What They Want: Fewer Emissions Rules

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

Thanks (for trying), Obama.

The Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) is moving forward with plans to roll back the former president’s emissions standards for automobiles.

Back in 2010, the Obama administration altered the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, requiring automakers to meet a minimum fuel standard of 54.5 miles per gallon for vehicles by 2025.

According to the E.P.A.’s own projections, passenger vehicles in model years 2012 through 2025 that meet these emissions standards would decrease the country’s oil consumption by 12 billion barrels, and its greenhouse gas emissions by 6 billion metric tons over the vehicles’ lifetimes.

But with a new administration in charge, it’s likely those goals won’t be met.

This week, an E.P.A. spokesperson confirmed that the agency’s head, Scott Pruitt, has sent the White House a draft of a 16-page plan to revisit those standards. Two sources familiar with the matter told The New York Times the plan could “substantially roll back the Obama-era standards.”

“The proposed rollback is going to be quite a significant number,” Myron Ebell, director of global warming and international environmental policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told The Times. “It will be more than a couple [miles per gallon].”

Automakers have been eager to lower the CAFE standards, which they deem expensive and difficult to attain. And the president and his administration have seemed just as eager to acquiesce. “My administration will work tirelessly to eliminate the industry-killing regulations,” Trump told autoworkers during a speech in March 2017.

Now that Pruitt has delivered a plan, Trump’s one step closer to keeping that promise, and it has environmental experts concerned.

“This is certainly a big deal,” Robert Stavins, director of Harvard’s environmental economics program, told The Times. “The result will be more gas-guzzling vehicles on the road, greater total gasoline consumption, and a significant increase in carbon dioxide emissions.”

We should know the specifics of Pruitt’s plan for revising emissions standards later this year, according to The Times’s sources.

Whether the administration simply rolls back standards to those in place prior to the Obama administration or goes even further is unknown. Either way, our environment will surely suffer.

This Chrome extension silences tabs before they annoy you

Google’s Chrome browser already lets you manually mute entire sites for good, and the next version will automatically prevent videos from autoplaying if they have sound.

T-Mobile and Verizon confirm they will carry the 2018 iPad

Earlier today, Apple held an educational “Field Trip” event in Chicago where it announced many software tools for teachers and students. But the most significant announcement was the introduction of an updated (2018) 9.7-inch iPad with a new A10 Fusion chipset for improved performance and higher-precision digitizer that would be compatible with the Apple Pencil. Other aspects of the iPad like camera and display resolutions, as well as the physical hardware of the device have remained unchanged. Both Verizon and T-Mobile have confirmed that they will be carrying the refreshed 9.7-inch…

Amazon asked its customers what they think about TV news. Here’s the survey.

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

Why do you think Jeff Bezos wants to know about that?

Amazon will fetch you books, groceries and home security systems.

What about news?

Perhaps Amazon is trying to answer that question. It has commissioned a survey that queries customers about their news consumption habits — specifically, the way they watch TV news.

Amazon recently hired research firm Qualtrics to ask Amazon users how they “experience the news.” A helpful reader sent us screenshots of the survey; we’ll post a selection below.

No comment from Amazon PR. But it’s worth noting that a couple of the questions have to do with customers’ use the company’s Fire TV video hardware, so it’s possible that it’s related to the people who work in that group. Also noted: Like any video platform, Fire TV already supports plenty of news apps. One last note: Amazon spent time trying to build a pay TV service, then backed away from the idea.

And the requisite caveat: Amazon asking customers about something does not equal Amazon doing something. It’s reasonable to assume that Amazon conducts many surveys about many products and services, and in most cases they lead to… not that much.

Still! Aren’t you glad you can get a tiny peek into Amazon’s head, and learn about what they’re interested in learning about? Me, too.

First, Amazon wanted to make sure that survey respondents didn’t work for one of its big competitors. Note who’s on this particular list — Comcast and Verizon, along with some Very Big Tech Companies — and who’s not, including Facebook and Netflix.

Amazon also wanted to make sure that bloggers or “news-casters” weren’t weighing in on this, either.

On to the show: Amazon wanted to know how often users watched the news. That’s “watch,” not “read” or “listen to.

Another newswatching question:

What kind of news — local, national or international — do you care about?

Let’s drill down a bit:

And now, a question about “news sources”: Note that this one mixes TV networks with newspapers with websites with social media (just like everyone else does).

Here are a couple more clues that whoever paid for this survey is spending time thinking about the way you think about Fire TV:

And one last: Another question about the way you think about news, framed in ways that you probably don’t (may not?) think about news.

Four times people cried ‘aliens’ — and four times they were wrong

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

<em>The mummified remains of a fetus that was either stillborn or died shortly after birth. </em>Discovered in Chile’s Atacama Desert in 2003, this tiny, 6-inch-long mummy, with its pointed head and atypical number of ribs, stoked theories that aliens have visited Earth. Scientists have had genetic proof that the remains are human since 2013, and a new genetic analysis reveals that mutations in genes related to growth might explain the mummy’s atypical bones.

The results, which have been making headlines, are a reminder that the truth may well be out there — but it isn’t aliens. A series of discoveries this past year make it clear that, sadly, it never is.

Sad but true

Scientists have struggled to explain why this mummy, known as Ata, is the size of a fetus and yet has bones as developed as those of a six- to eight-year-old child,…
