It’s so good that you just don’t need that musty old laptop. And here’s Apple CEO Tim Cook to make it real clear. Here’s a chart showing the past four quarters – and there’s the iPad alongside… other companies’ notebooks: Dell, HP, Lenovo.
“What you might not know is we’ve sold more iPads in the last year than the entire notebook lineup of all of the biggest notebook manufacturers,” he said. The Macs were also in the list – down there in the middle of the chart.
Half of the 90-minute launch was dedicated to the iPad Pro – with every effort made to point out that it is just as good, if not better, than a laptop.

Published 11 months ago in AI , Facebook , Google , Government , Hack - 0 Comments

Google says it has many personalities… some of them are cray, cray.

I could literally just talk about this all day.

We also discuss:

“The chicken crossed the road to become a sandwich. Burger King encouraged the chicken,” says the voice. “The Whopper lives in a bun mansion, just like you,” it chirps.

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/09/cybersecurity-isnt-being-taken-seriously-enough-mit-professor.html
  • As the digital economy continues to grow, companies and individuals are not taking cybersecurity seriously enough, according to Erik Brynjolfsson, director at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy.
  • Combating cyber threats “boils down to prioritizing at a higher level,” Brynjolfsson said.
  • Some of the fixes are straightforward: For example, he said, two-factor authentication might prevent unauthorized logins and machine-readable paper ballots could make voting systems more secure.
