@Apple Gets into new ServiceS

#Apple unveiled its latest foray into the subscription business with a new fitness service that will begin offering studio-style workouts later this year
You might think it would worry @onepeloton #peloton whose business has lately been thriving, particularly as the new service, #Fitness+, will be included in a new discounted bundle of Apple services.
Most of Apple’s other entertainment-style subscription services unveiled so far have been not to put too fine a point on it—flops.
#AppleTV+ and #Applenews+ has seen little success
#Arcade has been total disappointment

#Apple filed a new patent application called “FILE FORMAT FOR SPATIAL AUDIO” (US Patent Application 20200288258). Here is a bit of my breakdown (while holding my thoughts on its innovative merits 🙃) #SpatialAudio (thread)
As noted earlier, Apple doesn’t want any part of the current nomenclature, and is referring to the entire gamut of various “Realities” as SR (Simulated Reality)
In general terms, the application describes what is essentially a new flavor of an object-based audio format, and how this format can be stored, edited, and reproduced.

There will be a sound asset library, where each sound is comprised of the actual SOUND DATA plus METADATA.

Great article on how #ByteDance's #tiktok algorithms made it such a success in #China; mainly because in #China, AI algorithms have been applied at scale to entertainment. With AI, the more inputs you have, the better and more accurate the algorithm becomes.
2/ #Tiktok would not likely be as effective in the US because the market is smaller (fewer inputs) than in China. This means that the algorithms could not be optimized as it has with #Douyin in China. In the US, algorithm optimization at #Microsoft, #Google, #Facebook, #Apple
3/ is a much slower and better documented process. With #facebook, it monetized advertising mainly through small ads and political ads targeting extremist subcultures and conspiracy groups, which adds to social fracturing in the US. #Facebook makes money from US collapse.

Ever wanted to learn coding but don't know from where to get started...

This thread 🧵 might help you.

#100daysofcode #programming #Coding #CodingTips #Thread #StartLearning #CodeNewbie @CodeNewbies
1. What you are interested in???

Do you want to create a website, or wanna deploy your apps on #Google PlayStore or #Apple @AppStore. Or you are learning just for fun...

Ask yourself this question before starting with actual coding
2. Choose your language according to your needs...

For eg for becoming a Front-end developer you need to know HTML, CSS
For making Android apps you need to learn Java
For making a completely working website you need to know JavaScript, HTML and CSS

#Apple

Why #WarrenBuffett missed the transformation from Hard assets to Soft assets , Why the legend never understood the transition to Software and it’s future and he underestimated the Internet to a very vast extent
It was 1997 and Warren was offered an opportunity to buy Microsoft stock and he said he believes MS story is pretty good in the short term , but he doesn’t see a great future in another 2 decades.
MS was trading at $16-18 at that times and has split thrice since then...
Berkshire purchased GEICO in 1995-96. It came to Warren’s attention that GEICO was paying $10 to search engine Google for every mouse click on GEICO ad
The cost of this service provided by Google was NIL
Warren couldn’t read the thesis behind this kind of income Google generated

#Apple , $2 Trillion stock and mystery of 10:30 AM when large buying happens in #FAANG especially #Apple
#swissbank #softbank #boj #norgesbank are large buyers of these stocks

Apple hit a market cap of $2 trillion, doubling in valuation in just over two years.
Apple first reached a $1 trillion market cap on Aug. 2, 2018. It didn't take long for other tech giants Amazon, Microsoft and Alphabet to match Apple's $1 trillion market cap.
All of Apple’s second $1 trillion came in the past 21 weeks...
while the global economy shrank faster than ever before in the coronavirus pandemic.
Investors have started seeing Apple's business less like other hardware makers and more like a software company, as indicated by Apple's quickly rising price-earnings ratio, which is now over 33

Ideas are born in the most unusual way and in unusual places.

' A story on how #Apple Got the Idea of Slide to Unlock '

🧵A Thread 🧵

( From the Script of @ColdFusion_TV )
In Early 2005 , Steve gave teams a 2 Weeks time to Create Something Great and it had to be GRET at any cost.

Following this, a small team at Apple spent 2 Sleepless weeks trying to create something amazing in an attempt to get the company's first Touch Screen Phone right.
Things taken into consideration for the raw idea were.

- how do you make a phone call on a touch screen
- how do you get from a calendar to web browsing
- What must be the most logical flow of getting from one application to another and so on.?

This is a well written thread (h/t @RobertaPaliotti ). The only missing part is the observation that #COVID19 , by hitting straight at the productive heartland of Italy, irreparably damaged the social pact.(1/10)
The original system was that south of the Rubicon you depend on transfers from north of the Rubicon, and you leave them North guys be as best as you can. As time passed, and more and more the Kleptocracy was needy, the more producers chafed under the yoke. (2/10)
Now comes the interesting part: it is FALSE that Europe works in a different way, and that's the rub: the #GreenNewDeal, for example, is perfectly understandable to an Italian: under cover of an ethical goal, it appropriates a shitload of money for governments.(3/10)

1/ Second thread on Apple.

Tl;dr: #Apple deserved to win. The #EC should reform, not abandon, its approach to tax state aid enforcement.
2/ Apple was a huge upset and a major blow to Commission’s plan to use state aid to combat tax avoidance. I have argued for years that the EC’s legal reasoning in these cases is deficient, so of course I’m glad Apple won. But I’m still disappointed, you’ll see why.
3/ The most important legal issue: how to allocate profits to the Irish branches of the stateless subs. If “allocation by exclusion” was okay, then Ireland would get $14B in tax. If not, Apple would keep it tax (and pay tax to the US at low rates on a slow schedule).

1/ Thread giving background on the shocking victory of #Apple and Ireland victory against the @EU_Commission yesterday in the EU General Court @EUCourtPress
2/ Recall the facts: Two stateless subs of Apple (Irish-incorp’d, U.S.-managed and controlled). Apple loaded the stateless subs with valuable IP, so all the IP profits end up there.
3/ DG-Comp and its hard-charging leader, M. Vestager (not VP of EC), heard the U.S. Senate hearings on Apple. They learned about “stateless income” and the “double Irish with a Dutch sandwich.”

Something was clearly amiss; they investigated.

💥Boom there it is: Commission confirms it will try to find ways to avoid member state veto on tax affairs, including use of Article 116 to go after multinational tax avoidance. No coincidence this is coming on #Apple day ft.com/content/4068b8… Image
A senior diplomat from one major member state says there is "no way we can stop" the 116 initiative in light of Covid-19 and Apple decision. That's not a view shared by a sizeable number of member states who will mount fierce fightback if Commission uses the treaty instrument
Can Article 116 pass the qualified majority threshold in the council? Interesting to tot up the numbers. If 10 mostly smaller member states reject (🇮🇪🇳🇱🇭🇺🇱🇺🇸🇰🇪🇪🇲🇹🇨🇾🇨🇿🇧🇪), it still wouldn't be enough for a veto consilium.europa.eu/en/council-eu/… Image

Some thoughts on the #Apple case, Ireland and tax: The Court’s reasoning is very limited – as a result of viewing this solely within the framework of EU state aid law. THREAD 1/
There are big limits to using the state aid to tackle tax avoidance. The Commission's ruling on Apple did not have the scope required to deal with the fact that it was booking its non-US sales through Ireland instead of paying tax in the countries where the sales took place 2/
So the issue at stake under the state aid rules was focused only on whether Apple was provided with an unfair advantage through two tax rulings by Revenue – a “sweetheart deal” 3/

Warning—#Apple Suddenly Catches TikTok Secretly Spying On Millions Of iPhone Users

Now Apple’s iOS 14 security and privacy changes have caught them red-handed still doing something they shouldn’t. Something they said was fixed.
forbes.com/sites/zakdoffm…
Apple has fixed a serious problem in iOS 14, due in the fall, where apps can secretly access the clipboard on users’ devices. Once the new OS is released, users will be warned whenever an app reads the last thing copied to the clipboard.
One of the apps caught snooping by security researchers Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk was China’s TikTok. Given other security concerns raised about the app, as well as broader worries given its Chinese origins, this became a headline issue.

Gli accordi di licenza per i contenuti degli editori raggiunti da #Google rivelano alcuni aspetti:

1. è un'ammissione implicita che è una media company e non una piattaforma per tutti

2. privilegiando alcuni editori (quelli più grandi), marginalizza i #publisher minori
3. precedenti esperienze di accordi come Apple News Plus e Facebook News non hanno aumentato il traffico verso i siti degli editori

4. la monetizzazione resta sempre intermediata: si resta in balia di una piattaforma terza.

axios.com/google-will-st…
Il futuro dei #giornali non può essere una fee elargita dalle big tech

Mentre qui in Italia, ci si entusiasma a iniziative come Facebook News e Google News,il New York Times esce da #Apple News

Ed è facile capire i motivi:

Important notice. Do NOT make the mistake of buying an Apple product, and if you own one definitely DO NOT take it to iCare for repair.

A THREAD

Please do read this as I'm getting no help from any official channels, and now forced to turn to social media.

Attached later will be some photos of the issue, my bill and so forth.

The initial issue:

On 28th December 2019, I decided to try to dive into the Apple ecosystem, and bought myself the iPhone 11 Pro from
@RelianceDigital , with a 1 year extended warranty.

The initial issue:

On reaching home an issue I noticed was that my phone would not charge beyond 80%. There is a setting to turn off "Optimised Battery Charging" which should allow the battery to charge to 100% everytime when turned off regardless of anything.

When is the stock market in a exaggeration? When to sell and/or go short? When does the bubble pop?
A Handbook

1.) When no name stocks explode 400% with no reason (Fangdd).
2.) When bankruptcies are positive and good and turn out to be THE stock booster at all!

When bankrupt companies explode like #Hertz (+1400% post-bankruptcy reversal - it’s now higher priced than pre-chapter 11 🤪)
Last Monday:
$HTZ (bankrupt): up 114%
$JCPNQ (bankrupt): up 96%
$CHK (bankrupt): up 175%
