Tim Cook probably buys from Amazon and has them deliver his groceries to his personal chef and deliver packages by drone to his mansions.
Cash is less traceable and causes you to spend less than non-cash alternatives.
Apples are great to eat and make hard cider with. I recommend ice cider, it's yummy.
Not the computer firm that has become Evil. That Apple is Rotten.
Latency is mostly the speed of light from the location to the surgeon. Which is why modern telepresence surgery robots have a buffer to handle that and complete operations locally with guidance from an assistant. The question is more how much information is presented to the surgeon over the pipe, and at what speed it's resolved for imaging. Imaging files are pretty huge, at least the ones I've seen.
You remember the surgical robot in that SF movie Ender's Game? That was one of the surgical robots here on campus. It actually exists.
He was interviewed at a coffee shop. I assume the author of this article didn't have fast enough internet to interview him via facetime.
Actually, there are multiple 40 Gbps ports around campus at places like the UW, so if you lived in one and did research, 10 Gbps is not that fast. We even have three 100 Gbps ports. It's useful for remote telepresence surgery, for example.
You have to go five levels deep in the menu to opt out.
In real countries, you have to separately sign and date any opt-in that gives away your privacy, and the default is No.
It is ridiculous. If someone told me ten years ago that a top of the line computer would stagnate at the same memory size for over five years, I'd think you're nuts.
But it's Beryllium-free.
Seriously, you thought we weren't going to illegally and unconstitutionally spy on you in your own country?
And a few other acquisitions that weren't profitable
We do actually have small usable fusion reactors, they were developed at the UW. And then started military use.
You didn't think we'd license it to you, did you?
They're really expensive, and our idea of small is the size of a walk-in closet, or a mudroom. But they're much smaller than fission reactors.
Think about it. Rich flyers in Uber flyers, and an armed drone intercepts and requires they give up all their bitcoins or it explodes!
Ain't it wonderful!
Make people work in open spaces with no walls, exposed pipes and ducts, and then act all surprised that it's too noisy?
Oh, and could somebody clean up the poo their dog leaves behind. It's not funny.
Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
