Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Elon Musk has a new foe he’s set his eye on as he looks for someone to cast blame on for Twitter’s current woes: Apple. In a series of tweets yesterday, Musk detailed at least three different fronts in which he’s having issues with Apple: 1) Musk says that Apple has cut almost all of its ad spending on Twitter, which is a problem as it is one of Twitter’s biggest ad clients with previous $100 million yearly spends . Musk cites them hating “free speech” as the reason why: 2) Musk says that Apple has now threatened to take Twitter off the App Store, but will not explain why, and he posted a poll asking his followers if Apple should be forced to explain their “censorship” actions. 3) Musk seems to have only recently arrived at the discovery that Apple takes a 30% cut of revenue from in-app sales. This is a problem, given that Musk wants to replace most of Twitter’s advertising revenue with … [Read more...] about Elon Musk Joins Epic’s ‘War’ Against Apple And Its 30% App Store Cut

SK siltron's manufacturing facility in Korea [YONHAP] U.S. President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit an SK siltron plant in Michigan. The president will deliver a speech at the production site in Bay City, Michigan, on Nov. 29, according to the White House.

Compared with chips made up entirely of silicon, silicon carbide-based semiconductors deliver superior power switch technology in harsh environments such … [Read more...] about Biden to visit SK siltron plant in Bay City, Michigan
These low-carbon visionaries have big plans — for laser furnaces, atomic batteries, smart windows and flywheels. By Chris Helman , Olivia Peluso and Hank Tucker W hen Ben Parker worked as a battery engineer at Tesla for four years, he spent countless nights in casino hotels in Reno, Nevada going through “production hell” on the gigafactory Model 3 line. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit and he needed a break and a breath of fresh air. So Parker left Tesla and rented a 30-foot Winnebago RV for three months. On the subsequent 6,000-mile road trip around the western United States, he befriended many other RV enthusiasts, and realized the electric vehicle movement had been ignoring a large segment of drivers on America’s highways. This was more than a whim. Parker had for several years been dreaming of building an EV-optimized aerodynamic travel trailer. In 2020 he met Toby Kraus, who predated him at Tesla in its finance division, and together they founded … [Read more...] about Meet The Under 30s Powering The Future Of Energy And Sustainability
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Dr. John C.C. Fan, Founder and Chairman of Kopin Corporation . Much of the world is stumped on the idea of the “metaverse dream,” where our real world would merge seamlessly with a virtual 3-D world. This would be an entirely new type of wireless wearable platform—a quantum jump from our current handheld or desktop 2-D computing world. Such a metaverse platform could generate profound new experiences and applications—as well as trillions of dollars in revenue. But before we can attain that dream, there are still questions we've yet to answer: What happened to the metaverse? Are we actually headed in the right direction? Is the metaverse hype over-exaggerated? With all these unanswered questions, the one thing that nobody is talking about is how the idea of the metaverse has been around for years. In fact, it can be argued it started 30 years ago, and this idea of the physical and digital worlds colliding is … [Read more...] about What Happened To The Metaverse Dream?
