The potentially more exciting update would be the introduction of long-awaited universal apps that could work seamlessly across Mac OS and iOS (though there’s some debate as to whether this will be announced at WWDC or later this year). Right now, developers have to build apps for both of Apple’s platforms distinctly, and consumers can get sucked into buying apps again and again as a result. After the update, iMacs and Macbooks would literally be able to run iPad apps, and a platform called UXKit will allow developers to design a single piece of software to run cross-platform. Aside from solving a lot of user confusion, this platform agnostic approach to apps could enable developers to be more creative about the interplay of their apps across various screens, and usher in an era where there’s actually some advantage to owning both an iPhone and an iMac. … [Read more...] about Apple’s biggest event of the year is looking unusually quiet

The new ban also talks about improving recycling infrastructure in China, and encouraging the use of alternatives such as cloth bags. But including biodegradable plastic as an option in its new ban may be a mistake.

The ultimate solution, he says, is moving from a throwaway culture to a reusable one. … [Read more...] about The problem with China’s single-use plastic ban: What will replace the plastic?
“It is a little unnerving, honestly. I build buildings that are supposed to last lifetimes,” says Verbeck. “I really had to reconsider, how do you build a building that’s 220 feet across and seven stories tall, which is designed to last only a week and then [be] burned . . .
