Apple Self-Driving Car Layoffs Are a Nod to Reality

Apple needed a customer willing to buy those systems, and there's no evidence it has ever found one. As difficult and demanding a partner as Apple can sometimes prove to be, the greater issue was always likely to be that its autonomous technology wasn't up to scratch. After Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook warned earlier this month that sales in the three months through December would fall short of expectations, it seems as though the company is examining its internal costs more closely.

Apple laid off 200 people from its self-driving car unit Project Titan

Apple laid off 200 employees from its self-driving car unit, "Project Titan," CNBC reported.

Apple's secretive car project has been going since 2014, and has been marked by executive reshuffles, changes in direction, and rounds of layoffs.

Apple cuts 200 staff from its Project Titan autonomous car division

That’s according to CNBC which, citing sources, reported that a portion of the 200 staff were moved to other projects inside Apple, while others — and it isn’t clear how many — were let go altogether. The news was enough to prompt Apple to respond with a confirmation ...

BuzzFeed News' real problem isn't the special counsel's office

Dear Readers, It was a three-day weekend for some, but not over at BuzzFeed News. The publisher was busy defending its bombshell report on Robert Mueller’s investigation after the special counsel’s office denied the story, which claimed that President Trump directed his lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. (BuzzFeed stands by its story.) The ordeal raised questions about BuzzFeed News’ credibility and showed the perils of high-stakes reporting on the Trump presidency in a 24-7 news cycle. Bu...

Apple is reportedly planning to change a key component of every iPhone lineup by 2020, and now one of its major suppliers is scrambling (AAPL)

Apple buys LCD screens for the iPhone XR, iPhone 8, and other models from Japan Display. But Apple is likely to cut out LCD screens from the iPhone lineup as soon as 2020, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Apple should give the iPhone XS and iPhone XR a permanent price cut (AAPL)

Apple has reportedly cut production for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max twice in the past two months to accommodate lower-than-expected demand for the new phones.

Apple boss Tim Cook attacks 'shadow economy' of data in call for new privacy law

Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook has called for the US to introduce a national privacy law, attacking a “shadow economy” in which people’s personal data is bought and sold without their knowledge.

Tim Cook Calls for ‘Data-Broker Clearinghouse’ in Push for Privacy Rules

Cook joined other technology company executives in calling for federal privacy legislation, but added his own specific idea in a column published by Time. "The Federal Trade Commission should establish a data-broker clearinghouse, requiring all data brokers to register, enabling consumers to track the transactions that have bundled and sold their data from place to place, and giving users the power to delete their data on demand, freely, easily and online, once and for all," Cook wrote.

Apple CEO Tim Cook blasted the invisible 'shadow economy' that profits off your information

Tim Cook published an op-ed in Time Magazine on Thursday arguing for the US to rein in data brokers in order to give people true privacy when it comes to their data. Data brokers are firms such as Experian or Oracle which collect huge amounts of information on consumers, then sell that data or insights based on the data to their customers. Most people aren't aware that data brokers exist, and how they hoover up online information. Cook called for new federal privacy regulation to shine a light...

Apple's $24 million chip executive is reportedly on Intel's short list for new CEO, but it's not clear if he'd be willing to make that jump (INTC)

It's been six months and Intel still hasn't found a new CEO. Intel has reportedly put Apple senior VP of hardware technologies, Johny Srouji, on its wish list. If Intel could convince Srouji to become its new CEO, it would be a big win for the company. But that's a big if. If there's one sure-fire way for Intel to turn the fiasco of its six-month vacant CEO slot into a big win for the company, it's this: lure Apple senior vice president of hardware technologies, Johny Srouji, into becoming th...
