steve jobs’ brainchild has realized its potential

When the then-CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs, prepared to unveil the cloud storage service iCloud back in 2011 , he described a world that you might barely recognize now: a world where any photos you take, videos you shoot, music you buy and other digital files are stored simply on your PC, “the digital hub of your digital life”. However, as you might recall if you are old enough, this arrangement faltered as many devices other than the PC began taking on further PC-like responsibilities. The days when a photo would scarcely last long on your phone before you quickly uploaded it to your PC are long gone. As Jobs acknowledged at the 2011 keynote of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) where iCloud would ultimately be announced, our PCs, phones and…

for the love of teaching, and each other

Not every couples can say that they get to see each other at work most of the day, but the Morgans and Unruhs at Erie Middle School are an exception. After years of coming to work every day together, the couples now will retire together. Keith Morgan, who has served as principal for 19 years, will wrap up 34 years in education; his wife, Mindy, will conclude 30 years of teaching physical education at the school. Tom and Jan Unruh, who are also retiring, came to Erie 15 years ago; both have taught for more than 30 years at various schools in northern Illinois. Tom teaches math and computer technology, and Jan teaches special education. Both couples also find a bond with being able to share their work experiences at the end of the…

google puts up $1b to ease housing headaches it helped cause

Google is pouring $1 billion into easing the high-priced housing headaches that it and its Silicon Valley peers helped give the San Francisco Bay Area. The pledge announced by Google CEO Sundar Pichai consists of a $250 million investment fund and $750 million of company-owned land. It will be used to build at least 15,000 homes that will include low- and mid-income housing. Google’s commitment eclipsed a recent $500 million pledge made by Microsoft to combat housing shortages in the Seattle area and a $500 million housing fund created by a consortium including Facebook. Google is extending a helping hand as it draws up plans to expand into sprawling offices beyond its headquarters in Mountain View, California. That suburban city of roughly 80,000 people has been swamped with affluent tech workers since Google…

us ceo hands oxford university $189 million for ai studies

An American billionaire has given Oxford University 150 million pounds ($188.6 million) for a new institute that will study the ethical implications of artificial intelligence and computing technologies. The donation from Stephen Schwarzman, CEO of the private equity firm Blackstone, will also fund a center to house all of the university’s humanities subjects in a single space to encourage collaborative study. “AI is going to be the fourth revolution, and it is going to impact jobs, excellence, efficiency,” Schwarzman told the BBC. “It is a force for amazing good and also a potential force for not good.” Schwarzman compared the rise of AI to the rise of the internet, which was launched by computer scientists who thought it was “cool.” “And parts of it were cool — interconnectedness, globally the ability to communicate,…

watchos 6: more power than ever on your wrist

In perhaps its most jam-packed WWDC keynote to date, Apple lifted the lid on a whole host of enhancements to its operating systems earlier this month - including watchOS. With a dedicated App Store, better health tracking, new apps, and beautifully designed watch faces, watchOS 6 gives users more power on their wrists. This week, we delve deeper into the release… THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT… When Apple launched the Apple Watch back in 2015, the company marketed the product as a companion or extension to the iPhone - read text messages, unlock your Mac, ask Siri a question, and control your iPhone camera from your wrist. Over the past couple of years, however, Apple has been keen to distance the Apple Watch from the iPhone , enhancing the wearable so that…

wisconsin assembly passes 5g technology regulation bill

The Wisconsin Assembly has passed a bill that would limit the regulation of 5G, or “small cell,” technology. The bill approved Tuesday now heads to Gov. Tony Evers for his consideration. The Senate passed the bill 25-5 earlier this month. The proposal creates a statewide regulatory framework for the 5G technology, including provisions about where the small wireless facilities can be placed, height and size restrictions and other requirements. In general, the bill prohibits local governments from regulating certain communications services or charging fees on infrastructure to support it. Bill sponsor Rep. Mike Kuglitsch said Wisconsin has been at a competitive disadvantage because neighboring states have already enacted similar laws. Supporters are calling for quick action to get the technology in place, especially before Milwaukee hosts the Democratic National Convention next year. Opponents say the…
