apple music

It was only a few years ago that Spotify felt like the only palatable option for music streamers. The service was at the music streaming market’s summit in both user base and software functionality - however, in just three years since Apple Music began, this rival service has slowly but surely chipped away at Spotify’s pedestal. On multiple counts, Apple Music is now well on its way to dominating both music and video playlists - and, in certain respects, already is. A NUMBERS GAME WHERE APPLE MUSIC IS HOLDING ITS OWN Apple Music’s growth trajectory has been impressive; as recently as April 2016, the subscribers numbered 13 million. By the end of that year, the subscriber base broke the 20 million milestone, and growth after that was rapid as the service reached…

barbs for bezos but bill gates largely admired in seattle

The Seattle region is home to America’s two richest men, but their local legacies to date represent two very different eras for the city. While Amazon’s Jeff Bezos is blamed by some for rising rents and clogged city streets, Bill Gates is largely admired for helping lead the computing revolution and donating billions through his philanthropy. The Microsoft co-founder’s legacy here includes opening the world’s largest private charity across the street from the Space Needle, creating housing for homeless families and supporting charter schools. Microsoft was the first tech company to dramatically change the region’s economy as it grew quickly in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, Seattle is booming again with housing prices skyrocketing thanks to online retail giant Amazon’s explosive growth that has added tens of thousands of well-paid workers to the…

new app offers interactive experiences for disney guests

With the opening of Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studies, Walt Disney World is also offering guests a new mobile app called Play Disney Parks.

apple maps: time for a new direction

ALL CHANGE FOR APPLE MAPS Whether you’re heading to a meeting or looking for a place to eat with friends in town, mapping apps are an essential part of everyday life. While Google Maps continues to dominate, Apple Maps is growing in popularity, with new changes set to make the software even more advanced.

ceo musk: tesla hits weekly goal of making 5,000 models 3s

Electric car maker Tesla Inc. has delivered on its CEO’s promise to build a lower-priced car at a rate of 5,000 per week by the end of June. CEO Elon Musk sent an e-mail to company employees last weekend praising them for producing 5,000 Model 3s, a compact car that’s designed to shift Tesla from a niche manufacturer to a mainstream automaker. Musk also said the company had cranked out a combined 2,000 of Model S sedans and Model X sport-utility vehicles, bringing overall production to a record 7,000 for the week. “We did it!” Musk wrote. “What an incredible job by an amazing team.” The e-mail was reported by the website Electrek, and the company confirmed its authenticity. Last summer, when the first Model 3s began rolling off the assembly line, Musk promised…

why they fight: us and china brawl over high technology

To understand why the United States and China stand on the brink of a trade war, consider the near-death experience of American Superconductor Corp. The company, known as AMSC and based in Massachusetts, was reeling after a Chinese partner stole its technology — the electronic brains that run wind turbines. The loss was devastating: AMSC’s stock shed $1 billion in value, and the company cut 700 jobs, more than half its workforce. “Attempted corporate homicide” is what CEO Daniel McGahn called it. In January, its Chinese partner, Sinovel Wind Group, was convicted in a U.S. court of stealing AMSC’s trade secrets. To the Trump administration, Sinovel’s predatory practices are hardly isolated. Beijing, it charges, is orchestrating a brass-knuckles campaign to supplant U.S. technological dominance and over the next few decades make Chinese companies…
