Forget the cheap iPad, Apple released something much more important today

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

Apple event today: Space gray keyboard OMG!

During an underwhelming education-focused event today, Apple tried to stem the oncoming Chromebook tide in schools by releasing a marginally cheaper iPad with support for the Apple Pencil. A new iPad is always big news, but outside of the event, Apple quietly did something much more significant.

That’s right: The space gray iMac Pro accessories that everyone wants but no one could buy have finally been made available to the general public. For a tiny amount more than Apple charges for the white versions, you can now buy a space gray Magic Keyboard, a space gray Magic Mouse, and a space gray Magic Touchpad. That thundering you hear underneath you? The sounds of the Apple Faithful flocking to their nearest store and throwing credit cards everywhere.

All jokes aside, I’ve always been a big fan of Apple’s keyboard (to the extent that I hacked one to work with my Windows PC), so I’m genuinely excited to be able to buy the space gray version for my workspace. Not only does it show everyone (and my dog) that I’m a real cool nerd, I also suspect the black keys won’t get as grubby nearly as fast.

Of course, this is Apple, so you do have to pay for all that extra black ink. The space gray Magic Keyboard is $ 149, $ 20 more than the regular Magic Keyboard and an undeniably large amount of money to pay for a basic Bluetooth keyboard. The Magic Mouse is $ 99, and the Magic Touchpad is also $ 149. The accessories all come with a coveted black Lightning cable for charging.

When Apple first unveiled the space gray accessories, they were only for the new iMac Pro. Even if you wanted to buy replacements, you had to give Apple a valid serial number to prove that you were cool enough to qualify. The second-hand market got truly out of hand, and at one point the accessories were selling for over $ 2,000 on eBay.

PSA: Apple Accepting WWDC Scholarship Applications Starting Today

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

Every year, Apple offers free WWDC scholarships to students and STEM organization members who don’t have the $1,599 necessary to purchase a ticket to the company’s developer conference.

Apple began accepting WWDC scholarship applications for 2018 today, as was first announced on March 13 when Apple shared WWDC 2018 event dates. Apple plans to award up to 350 scholarships, which will include a free WWDC ticket, free lodging, and a free one year Apple Developer membership.


Scholarship applicants, who must be at least 13 years old, can use Apple’s WWDC scholarship website to submit an application. Apple is asking scholarship applicants to create an interactive scene in Swift playground that’s able to be experienced within three minutes.

Apple recommends that applicants “be creative” and use templates in Swift Playgrounds for inspiration. Apple will judge requirements based on technical accomplishment, creativity of ideas, and content of written responses on the accompanying application.

All submissions must be individually created, as Apple will not consider group work. Open source software is permitted, but its use must be explained on the submission form. Swift playground must be built using Swift Playgrounds on iPad or Xcode on macOS. A full list of rules are available on Apple’s WWDC18 Scholarship website.

Each applicant must be registered for free with Apple as an Apple developer or a member of the paid Apple Developer Program. Applicants will need to be enrolled part-time or full-time in an accredited course of study or be a member of a STEM organization.

Apple will be accepting scholarship applications through Sunday, April 1 at 5:00 a.m. Pacific Time, and winners will be notified on Friday, April 20.

This year’s Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on Monday, June 4 and it will last through Friday, June 8. Apple is expected to hold a keynote on June 4 where new software and perhaps new hardware products will be unveiled. Scholarship students who aren’t picked to attend will be able to follow along with the conference using the WWDC app.

Six things we can do today to help women succeed in the workplace

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

“That’s What She Said” author Joanne Lipman

“That’s What She Said” author Joanne Lipman shares what she has learned about discrimination and the failures of “diversity training,” on Recode Decode.

The inspiration for journalist Joanne Lipman’s new book came in part from an unsuspecting businessman on an airplane to Des Moines. He and Lipman were sitting next to each other, having a nice conversation, until he asked why she was flying to Iowa.

“I said, ‘I’m going to speak at a women’s leadership conference,’” Lipman recalled on the latest episode of Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher. “And suddenly, this lovely man, he freezes up, he gets that deer-in-the-headlights look, and he goes, ‘Sorry I’m a man!’”

“Then he launches into this whole thing about how he had just gone through ‘diversity training’ at his bank, and how awful it was and they beat him up, and it felt like you were being sent to the principal’s office,” she added. “He says to me, he took one message away from diversity training: ‘It’s all your fault.’”

More than three years and a lot more air travel later, Lipman has written “That’s What She Said,” a practical guide for men and women, who she said desperately need to talk more candidly about working together. Below, we’ve highlighted six of Lipman’s pieces of advice from the podcast.

You can listen to Recode Decode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Overcast or wherever you listen to podcasts.

Here are six of Lipman’s top suggestions:

  1. Don’t outsource diversity to Human Resources. “For women as well as for African-American men and women, [diversity training] made things worse,” she said. “The problem isn’t the training, per se, it’s that it’s outsourced to HR. The ownership of workplace equality has got to sit with the CEO and the CFO. They need to see it as a business imperative. Every piece of research tells you that when you have more diverse groups, you are more successful.”
  2. Don’t obsess over the Harvey Weinstein types. The #MeToo movement has successfully rooted out several bad actors, but “if we only focus on the sexual predators and sexual harassment, we are totally missing the point. That will waste this moment. Not every woman has been sexually assaulted at work, but every single woman knows what it feels like to be marginalized and underpaid and overlooked. That’s what this moment is about.”
  3. Make sure the people doing the hiring are diverse. “We all know at this point that if you have an opening, you should have a diverse slate of candidates. But in my research, what I found is that is simply not enough. You actually need a diverse slate of interviewers, and that’s been a big, big issue with the tech firms. You bring in a diverse slate of candidates, but you’ve got a bunch of white guys who all went to Stanford who are doing the interviewing.”
  4. Don’t decide for her. “I cannot even tell you the number of times I’ve been in a small group of leaders, talking about an opening and somebody will say, ’Susan would be great for that!’ And somebody else will say, ‘Oh, she just had a baby,’ or, ‘Her husband has a big job, he’s not going to want to relocate.’ There’s always some reason.”
  5. Understand why she’s crying. “I had no idea, but men are terrified of women crying in the office, which leads them to not give honest feedback. Science says women do cry more than men, but when they do cry it’s because they’re angry or frustrated. Men don’t see it that way, they think feelings have been hurt. A woman crying in the office is the same thing as a man screaming and yelling and getting angry.”
  6. Hire somebody your mom’s age. “Age discrimination is rampant. Particularly for women who have maybe taken off some time for their kids or who have dialed back, they are invisible. They would add trillions of dollars to the economy.”
