  • Apple sued over atrial fibrillation optical sensor in Apple Watch

    Issued in 2006 and still hasn't been acquired by any of the major medical monitoring companies after 13 years says a lot of about the value of this patent. Assuming 12 months b/n filing and issuance, this patent will be running out of steam in another 3 years. Desperate measure to extract some return.

  • Apple Maps, Weather app now shows Crimea as Russian territory

    Well done that Apple has elevated itself from all the geopolitical tussles of this planet. If one looks back through history, Crimea was moved across to Ukraine for administrative convenience during the USSR 1960s period. It houses USSR's Black Sea fleet, having strategic interest to the USSR, now Russia. With the breakup of the USSR, there was a lease to Russia that permitted the continuing operation of the Black Sea fleet. However, US led West decided to flip Ukraine's allegiance through a coloured revolution and then recinds the agreement with the aim of 'killing' the Black Sea fleet. It was but obvious that Russia would 'take back' Crimea, no surprise. Apple's action just reflected geopolitical reality of today but I also understand it'll annoy all the 'America good, Russia bad' fanboys.

  • Apple's new macOS Catalina is now available

    Critical 32 bit apps and need to update old video files (those dependent on QT7) are stopping me from an early upgrade.
