Trump withdraws US from Paris climate change agreement

The president claimed that stipulations in the agreement were unfair to the US saying, "The Paris Accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States." He pointed to rules regarding coal production as being particularly disagreeable. "This agreement is less about the climate and more about others gaining financial advantage over the US," he said.

Elon Musk leaves Trump’s council after US exits Paris climate pact

Climate change is real and we all share a responsibility to fight it. I want to reassure you that today's developments will have no impact on Apple's efforts to protect the environment. We power nearly all of our operations with renewable energy, which we believe is an example of something that's good for our planet and makes good business sense as well. We will keep working toward the ambitious goals of a closed-loop supply chain, and to eventually stop mining new materials altogether. Of course, we're going to keep working with our suppliers to help them do more to power their businesses with clean energy. And we will keep challenging ourselves to do even more. Knowing the good work that we and countless others around the world are doing, there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about our planet's future.

Apple users have spent over $100 billion in the App Store

Apple announced today that app developers have earned over $70 billion through the App Store since its launch in 2008. As ever, the revenue split between Apple and its app developers is 70/30 for most purchases, meaning users have spent over $100 billion in the App Store.

Apple's Swift Playgrounds will make robots and drones dance

While Apple's pushing iPads in education, they aren't exactly cheap. It gives students $20 off the price of iPads, but its cheapest tablet starts at $309, even with the promotion. Drones, robots and other similar tech also can be pricey, despite education discounts. For some school districts struggling to make ends meet, purchasing enough iPads for students can be tough.

Microsoft's new Skype redesign is a radical change that looks like Snapchat

Capture feels a lot like Snapchat within Skype, and it immediately launches into the camera to let you take pictures or hold down for video. As you hold down for video you’ll immediately recognize one of the more subtle design changes in this new version of Skype, a squiggly line that represents the amount of time for a recording. This line is also used for calling, or when contacts are typing. Once you’ve captured a video or picture you can then add stickers, text, or simply annotate it, all just like Snapchat.

Five years of Apple blunders, mistakes and missed opportunities | ZDNet

Why you'll never have to wait in line at the pharmacy again

Through its desktop and mobile website, Phil gives customers the power to schedule refills whenever they like, manage prescriptions for their entire family, including aging parents, and quickly chat with pharmacy staff, while removing all of the usual frustration. It's the convenience of Uber meeting the reliability of a utility (there's a guarantee your prescriptions won't run out), and for patients it's essentially free: You pay nothing more than your usual copay and delivery is free.

Walmart store workers now powering deliveries

The new concept, which is in testing at two New Jersey stores and one in Arkansas, is another way Walmart is trying to turn its vast network of stores into valuable parts for its growing e-commerce business. That way, it can use those legacy assets to do a better job fighting Amazon, the reigning king of e-commerce. The associate delivery idea also points to Walmart's potentially changed perceptions, with the company now looking to boost sales regardless of whether they're in stores or online, instead of simply using its online channel to support its stores.

Plex Just Killed My Cable Box Rental, and It Could Kill Yours Too

One of the dirty secrets about streaming live TV services like PS Vue and Hulu TV is that in many cases you’re paying the same amount of money as you would for basic cable. The main difference, besides the benefit of not dealing with a godforsaken cable company, is the crazy monthly fees local operators like to charge for their hardware—often $8 to $12 a month. But Plex, a popular video app that lets you easily share your entire video library to practically any device you want, just added support for streaming live TV. Which means that with a little investment, you can escape most of those rental fees for good. I tried it, and I’m just about ready to get rid of that cable box forever.

Ditching the Paris Agreement Risks the Economy Even As It Harms the Planet

Since last April, almost every country on the planet has signed the Paris climate agreement, a collective effort to limit global warming to 2˚C and try to keep it as close to 1.5˚C as possible. Exceptions include Syria (mired in a civil war) and Nicaragua (didn’t think the Paris agreement was strong enough!). Each country submitted a commitment to reduce its overall greenhouse gas emissions, forging a sort of collective promise to share the economic burden of transitioning away from fossil fuels. The agreement is globally appealing because no single country wants to sacrifice prosperity or see its rivals gain an unfair advantage. “In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, you have to restrict certain types of economic activities,” says Rod Godby , the director of the University of Wyoming’s Center for Energy Economics & Public Policy.

We’ve Pulled Out Of The Paris Agreement. What’s Next: A Damaged Economy, Country, And Planet

If the climate will suffer because of the administration’s policies as a whole, the withdrawal from Paris could have a more direct impact on the American economy. “I think that what we risk happening is that the credibility of American businesses who are trying to compete on the international clean energy market is tarnished by the fact that the United States has pulled out of Paris,” says Light. “Obviously, some of these are big international companies and they’ve got their longstanding relationships in other parts of the world. But I do think there’s a big chunk of the American renewable energy industry which is going to suffer from the United States essentially being one of three countries in the world that’s not part of this agreement.”

The roof will be covered in a 300-meter-long garden, divided into different zones, including a “pause area” filled with wildflowers and woodland plants, a cafe, and a 200-meter “trim trail” for runners.

Google Will Help Publishers Prepare for a Chrome Ad Blocker Coming Next Year

In addition to the ad blocking tool, Google is also pitching publishers on a new tool it is calling “Funding Choices,” which is designed to combat the effects of ad blockers offered by other companies. If publishers enabled that feature on their sites, users with ad blockers turned on would be presented with messaging prompting them to disable their blockers to access the content, or to pay for a “pass” to remove advertising entirely.

SpaceX to Fly a Recycled Spacecraft for the First Time Tonight

“Reusability, for both rockets and spacecraft, is something SpaceX has been working toward since their founding,” Phil Larson, former Obama space policy advisor and SpaceX official, told Gizmodo. “The progress they’re making on both fronts is exciting for the industry and bodes well for the future of access to space. It’s tough to throwaway a rocket each time you use it and expect the cost of launch to lower dramatically—the same goes for spacecraft. Ferrying cargo and crew to space is still expensive, and reusing Dragon will be a key step in helping lower the cost of space access.”

Data center rack doors are having a moment - TechRepublic

"We're seeing an increase in requests for rack-mounted cameras, an increased request for locking rack doors, and we're even starting to see requests for locking doors in aisle containment units," he said.

They typically bolt straight to rack cabinets, but Damac and others are starting to build these to be modular, Hamilton explained.)

Don't Give Up On the Planet

What can you do? You can eat less meat and dairy, especially factory-farmed beef . When you do eat meat and dairy, you can support sustainable, local food systems. You can drive less, and walk and bike more. You can replace all of your incandescent bulbs with energy-saving LEDs, buy more efficient appliances, turn down that AC in the summer, and get a programmable thermostat. If your local utility has the option, you can opt for your household to draw power from clean energy sources—my utility does, and my electric bill hasn’t gone up more than a few bucks a month since I made the switch.

Or that there is something like surgery for cars who want to be better. Either answer is horrifying in its implication.

4 animations that show what’s really going on with our climate

Here, compare three different climate projections. Says Schmidt, “we’re collectively making decisions every day that make one of those futures more or less likely.” Bottom left, how the world’s temperatures will change if we aggressively try to combat climate change; top, what happens if we work pretty hard; bottom right, what happens if we just keep trucking along as we are today (hint: a not-pretty blood red world, below). Why is this useful? “It’s important to note we do have an element of control,” says Schmidt. “For better or worse, we are masters of our climate destiny. There are choices to be made.” As for Schmidt himself, his dream is that in the future, climate change discussion will be a thing of the past. “I hope in 50 years’ time someone will ask, ‘What happened with climate change?’ and the answer is that we reduced emissions and it didn’t happen.” Is he optimistic this might actually happen? “Sometimes,” he laughs.

Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook has emphasized Apple’s services businesses over the past 18 months as iPhone sales slowed. He expects service revenue to double by 2020 from last year’s $24 billion. A speaker may help keep customers loyal to service products such as Apple Music, a subscription music streaming offering that costs $10 per month. The speaker would likely be tucked into Apple’s “Other Products” category, which currently includes devices like the Apple Watch, Apple TV and AirPods. That set of products generated $11 billion in sales last year.
