green energy: how apple is an industry leader

On July 12, Apple announced that it was launching a new investment fund to enable its Chinese suppliers to more easily tap into renewable energy sources. Over the next four years, Apple and 10 of its suppliers – although yet more could yet enter the fold – will pour almost $300 million into the China Clean Energy Fund. The more than a gigawatt of renewable energy that this fund is set to spark will add to what is already a long list of Apple’s achievements for the planet’s health. CUTTING THE CARBON BUT NOT THE GREAT SERVICES In the press release announcing the ChinaClean Energy Fund , Apple’s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, Lisa Jackson, enthused: “At Apple, we are proud to join with companies that are stepping up…

billionaires fuel us charter schools movement

Dollar for dollar, the beleaguered movement to bring charter schools to Washington state has had no bigger champion than billionaire Bill Gates. The Microsoft co-founder gave millions of dollars to see a charter school law approved despite multiple failed ballot referendums. And his private foundation not only helped create the Washington State Charter Schools Association, but has at times contributed what amounts to an entire year’s worth of revenues for the 5-year-old charter advocacy group. All told, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given about $25 million to the charter group that is credited with keeping the charter schools open after the state struck down the law, and then lobbying legislators to revive the privately run, publicly funded schools. It’s an extreme example of how billionaires are influencing state education policy by…

elon musk’s social media conduct may be bad for his business

Whether it’s investors betting against his stock or reporters or analysts who ask tough questions, Elon Musk has fought back, often around the clock on Twitter. In the past few months, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has become a bigger, more snarling presence on social media. But when Musk called a British diver involved in the Thailand cave rescue a pedophile in front of 22.2 million Twitter followers Sunday (15), he may have gone one tweet too far. The tweet, later deleted, sent investors away from Tesla stock and could expose the temperamental rocket scientist to a libel suit. In the tweets, Musk strayed from a vigorous defense of his companies into personal insult, with no facts to back it up. “This has nothing to do with defending Tesla,” said Erik Gordon, a…

next generation: all-new macbook pro lineup announced by apple

A PROFESSIONAL MACBOOK FOR POWER USERS When Apple unveiled the fourth generation of its popular MacBook Pro lineup back in 2016, tech fans and consumers were thrilled. MacBook has been an integral part in Apple’s success for a number of years, but it’s fair to say that the company has shifted its focus to smartphones and tablets. With the 2016 MacBook Pro, however, Apple showed professionals that they still cared about creating cutting-edge laptops that rivaled the biggest names in technology; and they delivered. Less than six months later, in June of 2017, Apple refreshed the lineup, increasing processing power and memory, and giving users more control over their machine. July 2018’s MacBook Pro refresh takes the MacBook range to a whole new level and adds more processing power and a next-generation…

microsoft raises alarms about face recognition

Microsoft is calling on Congress to regulate the use of facial recognition technology to protect people’s privacy and freedom of expression. It’s the first big tech company to raise serious alarms about an increasingly sought-after technology for recognizing a person’s face from a photo or through a camera. Microsoft President Brad Smith said in a blog post that the government should form a bipartisan expert commission. Smith says Microsoft, which supplies face recognition to some businesses, has already rejected some customers’ requests to deploy the technology in situations involving “human rights risks.” A Microsoft spokeswoman declined to provide more details about what opportunities the company has passed over because of ethical concerns. Smith defended the company’s contract with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying it doesn’t involve face recognition.…
