11Oct18 – Apple expanded its semiconductor design group today, picking up 300 designers from Dialog.
31Aug18 – Apple set September 12th as the date of its iPhone Keynote. We are looking forward to seeing the A12 and any new “Apple” blocks.
23Aug18 – The Financial Times ran a story on IBM patent 10,040,551 a.k.a Drone Delivery of Coffee Based on a Cognitive State of an Individual …. hmmm. I guess the click-bait worked.
22Aug18 – Look for our upcoming thoughts on the role of Apple’s semiconductor work on the road to becoming a trillion dollar company.
25Jul18 – It is hard not to be cynical about some fo the technology that is publicized and promoted. It often appears the media and VC’s pick the stories that will provide good click-bait. More fundamental developments with less sex-appeal are all but ignored.
18Jul18 – We continue to think about the T2 and its implications for or insights into Apple’s product strategy.
16Jul18 – Apple’s T1 was introduced in the 2016 MBP ostensibly to run the new TouchBar. It’s successor the T2 was introduced a year later in the iMac Pro that does not have TouchBar. It’s work load seemed to expand with quite a bit of back-end housekeeping. Last week, the T2 landed in 2018 MBP and “other” functionality eclipsed running TouchBar. In fact, there was no mention of the TouchBar in its description.
13Jul18 – Apple’s new MacBook Pros with TouchBar now include the Apple T2 chip, which was introduced in last fall’s iMac Pro. It is interesting to think about the iOS-like features and control Apple chose to design itself.
10Jul18 – We not have to resort to space-based gee whiz when thinking about technology, and trying to solve problems. Yes there is room for big ideas, but society misses the singles and doubles that can lead to a great deal of technology development.
09Jul18 – … still thinking about sustainable liquid fuels. Is it not an oxymoron. In this case, a fuel derived from direct air capture of carbon dioxide. US 9,095,813.
20Jun18 – We are looking into the IP position of Carbon Engineering Ltd. and their carbon capture technology. The Globe and Mail wrote about them in early June. It is time to take a closer look.
