Interesting. Considering how many people I've seen complain about Microsoft Edge on the Computer Learning thread, I wonder how it'll fare on iOS.

I've never even installed another browser on my iOS devices, I've found using Safari with an ad blocker to be plenty sufficient for my needs. I do have several browsers installed on my Mac though.

6 Years Later, 6 Charts That Show How Far
Apple, Inc. Has Come Since Steve Jobs' Passing

It was six years ago today that Apple ( NASDAQ:AAPL) co-founder
Steve Jobs passed away after losing a very public battle with
pancreatic cancer. In the years since Jobs' untimely death, CEO
Tim Cook has made his mark on Apple in numerous ways, including
transforming it into a much more shareholder-friendly company that
communicates better with investors and returns copious amounts
of capital through share buybacks and dividends.

Cook tweeted out a remembrance this morning for his former
friend and colleague.

Apple vs. Samsung doesn't need Supreme Court redo, DOJ says

Samsung in March asked the Supreme Court to review another aspect
of the case, a 2014 verdict that awarded Apple $120 million for patent
infringement. Apple filed its own response in May, arguing that the high
court doesn't need to look at the matter -- an assessment with which
the Justice Department agrees.

Ohio State will give every incoming freshman an iPad Pro

Back to school shopping just got way easier for freshmen enrolling
at Ohio State next fall.

The school announced on Wednesday that every incoming freshman
will be supplied with an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and Apple keyboard
case starting in 2018 as part of a new partnership with Apple. The
iPads will be paid for from funds from Ohio State's "administrative
efficiency program."

At retail prices, an iPad Pro starts at $599, and the keyboard case
costs $159.

Ohio State's new program is called Digital Flagship University, and
it includes a new lab opening in 2018 at Ohio State's main Columbus
campus dedicated to iOS development using Swift, Apple's
programming language.

It should be pointed out that Apple DID NOT devise this program
for the 7K freshman in an attempt to get people to count better,
there being 14 schools in the Big Ten.

Note to Jonathan Ive:

"Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it's really how it works." Steve Jobs

"In most people's vocabularies, design means veneer. It's interior decorating. It's the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design." Steve Jobs

I think Steve "got it" more than they seem to now.

Google’s Marketing Plan: Do Everything Apple Does, But Better With AI

I can't imagine what this would be used for but what he says is interesting:

There's no better example of that than Google Clips, a tiny little camera that automatically captures seven-second moving photos of things it finds "interesting." It's a new way to think about photography, one that leverages Google's ability to do lots of different AI tasks: recognize faces, recognize "bad" photos, recognize "interesting" content. It's simply applied to your own pictures instead of content on the internet.

Clips does all this locally: nothing is sent to the cloud, and nothing integrates with whatever Google Photos knows about you. As much as Google is known for doing its AI in the cloud, many of the devices it's releasing are doing AI locally. Pichai says that's by design, and that both kinds of AI are necessary. "A hybrid approach absolutely makes sense," he says. "We will thoughtfully invest in both. Depending on the context, depending on what you're dealing with, it'll make sense to deploy it differently."


SUNDAR PICHAI SAYS THE FUTURE OF GOOGLE IS AI.
