    Apple Inc. said Chief Executive Tim Cook and other leaders received less total compensation in 2016 as the company missed its revenue and profit goals for the year. According to a regulatory filing on Friday, Apple said its annual sales of $215.6 billion were 3.7% below its target of $223.6 billion, and its operating income of $60 billion was 0.5% short of the $60.3 billion target. As a result, company executives got 89.5% of their targeted annual cash incentive. In 2015, the executives got 100%. In all, Mr. Cook received $8.75 million in total 2016 compensation, down from $10.28 million...

  • Apple’s new MacBook Pro is the first MacBook Consumer Reports won’t recommend

    Extreme Tech ^ | 12/23/2016 | Joel Hruska
    Apple’s new MacBook Pro isn’t having an easy time in the market. It’s been panned for its reliance on dongles, criticized for using older Intel chips, and a significant number of users have reported decidedly substandard battery life when using the system. Apple has responded to these complaints by cutting dongle prices and removing the “Time Remaining” indicator on the laptop’s battery, neither of which constitutes an actual solution. Now, Consumer Reports has refused to recommend the MacBook Pro for the first time ever. The reason? Battery life.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Martin Scorsese's Manhattan office, in a midtown building a few blocks northwest of the cordoned-off Trump Tower, may be the most concentrated bastion of reverence for cinema on the face of the earth. There's a small screening room where Scorsese screens early cuts of his films and classic movies for his daughter and his friends. There's his personal library of thousands of films, some he taped himself decades ago. Film posters line the walls. Bookshelves are stuffed with film histories. And there are editing suites, including the one where Scorsese and his longtime editor Thelma Schoonmaker...

Bill Cosby claims he's too blind to identify his accusers. (Reuters) Bill Cosby is now declaring himself “legally blind” and therefore would be unable to identify his assault accusers. “No 79-year-old blind man could possibly defend himself against a claim that he sexually assaulted someone he supposedly met once, half a century ago,” his attorneys claim in court documents filed in Pennsylvania on Thursday. “Without his eyesight, Mr. Cosby cannot even determine whether he has ever even...

    APPLE RELEASED iOS 10 to iPhone and iPad users on 13 September, but the update turned some devices into overpriced bricks instead of delivering new functionality. iOS 10 was released to all at 6pm UK time on Tuesday, but those who flocked to install the update were quick to regret their decision. Just minutes after the rollout began, social media sites filled up with complaints from pissed off iPhone users who, after trying to download iOS 10 over WiFi, found that their iDevice had been rendered useless.

    Solar panel producer SolarCity managed to raise $305 million thanks to a massive investment from an equity fund affiliated with billionaire liberal George Soros. A private investment fund tied to Quantum Strategic Partners Ltd provided the company the bulk of the investment. Soros Fund Management LLC advised the fund. The deal also includes an 18-year-loan with several other investment groups, the company said Monday in a press release. Both the loan and the cash infusion came as technology entrepreneur Elon Musk attempts to merge SolarCity and electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors. Musk is the chairman of both companies and owns...

    Tim Cook is planning a fundraising event for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to an invitation obtained by BuzzFeed News. The fundraiser is scheduled for August 24th and will be undertaken by Cook as a private citizen, rather than as a representative of Apple. Cook also hosted a fundraiser for Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan earlier this summer, indicating support for both parties. Thus far, he has not made any such gesture to Republican nominee Donald Trump, who called for a boycott of Apple products earlier this year.

    Daily Caller News Foundation Electric Vehicles Emit More Pollutants Than Fossil Fuel-Burning Cars, Says Study A study from the University of Edinburgh shows that electric and hybrid vehicles emit as many, if not more, atmospheric toxins than fossil fuel-burning vehicles. The study, conducted by Victor Timmers and Peter Achten at the University of Edinburgh, and published by the journal Atmospheric Environment, found that heavier electric vehicles produce as many pollutants as their lighter weight conventional vehicles. Electric vehicles tend to produce more pollutants from tire and brake wear, due in large part to their batteries, as well as the other...

    Has your Facebook feed turned into a stream of brand updates, memes, and re-shared videos? That's partly because Facebook wants it that way, but it's also partly because people are posting fewer personal updates to Facebook than they used to, according to a report in The Information. Overall sharing reportedly fell 5.5 percent from mid-2014 to mid-2015, so Facebook has fewer posts to choose from for your News Feed. But the bigger issue is this: people are posting far fewer of their own personal updates — stories about their thoughts, their life, what they're up to — to Facebook. The...

The petition, entered on the site March 16, 2016, asks the government to, "Outlaw programming languages that threaten the safety of the American people and work counter to our way of life." The petitioner is even kind enough to provide examples of these evil and dangerous languages. Which programming languages deserve the fate...

In a statement issued to iMore, Apple explained that updating older devices, including the iPhone 5s and earlier and the iPad Air and earlier, can require customers to enter the Apple ID and password used to originally set up the device. If the user doesn’t remember this information, they can be blocked...

    Investigators found crates’ worth of disposable cellphones, used and discarded after being meticulously scoured of email data. All around Paris, they found traces of consistent and improved bomb-making materials. And they began sketching in the details of a multilayered terrorist attack that evaded detection or prevention until much too late. In the immediate aftermath of the Paris terror attacks on November 13th, French investigators came face to face with the reality that they had missed the signs that the Islamic State was able to mount large and sophisticated international terrorist strikes. Now, the arrest on Friday of Salah Abdeslam, the...

"That is up to Apple and if they ever release a good computer we will do it," Luckey tells ShackNews when asked about Mac support. "It just boils down to the fact that Apple doesn’t prioritize high-end GPUs. You can buy a $6,000 Mac Pro with the top of the line AMD FirePro D700, and it still doesn’t match our recommended spec."

    This past week the Naval Special Warfare Command made a decision to pick up the Glock 19 as the SEALs new sidearm. They will slowly begin to phase out the Sig P226, and replace those with the Glock 19. There is nothing wrong with the Sig P226. It has served the Teams for many years and is a proven reliable system. However, as firearms evolve the military needs to keep pace. In this case the move to the Glock 19 makes sense. The Glock 19 has a lot to offer in a compact package, and is by far the most...

    DECEMBER 22--Angered by her husband’s repeated farting in bed, a Florida woman allegedly elbowed, kicked, and scratched her spouse, according to police who arrested her for battery. Dawn Meikle, 55, is facing a misdemeanor charge following a 3:20 AM confrontation in the Port St. Lucie home she shares with her husband Donald. As detailed in a December 11 arrest affidavit, Donald told cops that “while he was lying in bed he passed gas,” which prompted Dawn to begin “elbowing him on his arm.” When Donald’s flatulence continued, “Dawn began kicking him and eventually kicked him out of their bed,” police...

    Many open-source developers were happy when Apple announced that it was open-sourcing its popular Swift language. They weren't so happy, however, when Apple claimed it was also "the first major computer company to make Open Source a key part of its strategy." Ah, I don't think so. Many older open-source programmers think, with reason, that's nonsense. True, Apple has used open-source software for years, but that's not the same thing as making open-source development "a key part of its strategy." It would be more correct to say that Apple was the first major company to take advantage of open source....

    The United States Navy announced that it will be phasing out certain out-of-date styles and items of the working uniform through Oct. 1 and introducing other new styles, the military publication Stars and Stripes reported Tuesday.
