Bloomberg: Apple pushes back 12.9-inch iPad Pro production to September

iPad-Pro-03

The 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” that was expected to make its first public appearance around April before being pushed back to Q2 has been postponed yet again, a new Bloomberg report says. The new release date is reportedly some time in September, right around the next-gen iPhone launch.

This delay is said to be the result of display panel supply problems…

The larger tablet is expected to include an A8X processor built by Apple, and is far enough along in the development process that we’re already starting to see leaked molds, supposed manufacturing renders, and even manufacturing schematics that claim the device will run on an A9 chip and cite the name as the “iPad Air Plus.”

Pushing the bigger iPad back to the same time as an iPhone launch makes a lot of sense, especially if both will run on the same A9 processor (as at least one rumor has suggested) or share other features. In fact, Apple hasn’t released an iPad this early in the year since the iPad 3 (“The New iPad”) launched in 2012. The fourth-generation iPad and both models of the iPad Air—as well as all iterations of the iPad mini—have been released near the end of the year.

The High Tech Hotel of 1921 Had an Alarm Clock In Every Room

Today, hotels offer high-tech amenities that just a generation ago would be astounding — RFID key cards, customizable ambiance at the push of a button, and coming soon, humanoid robot concierges. So what started the high-tech hotel craze? It can all be traced back to the 1920s, when Americans started to demand a decidedly techno-centric flair in their hotels.

Judge approves $415m settlement in Apple/Google non-poaching class action

130521141911-tim-cook-hero-tax-code-614xa

Apple has settled a long-running class action lawsuit by workers that accused the company along with Google and other tech companies of entering illegal non-poaching agreements.

Associated Press reports that a judge has given the green light to a $415 million settlement after rejecting an earlier settlement as inadequate.

Judge Lucy Koh had rejected an earlier settlement offer, saying it didn’t offer enough compensation to about 64,000 workers affected by the case. She cited evidence of a corporate conspiracy to make it difficult for tech workers to negotiate better jobs at rival companies… Koh said she was satisfied this week after the companies increased their earlier offer of $324.5 million. She invited final comments on the deal before she grants final approval at a hearing on June 9.

If the settlement gets all final approvals, it will allow Apple, Google, Intel, Adobe and others involved in the case to avoid going to trial.

Last month reports surfaced that Apple was facing another lawsuit related to poaching employees, specifically from A123 Systems. In the lawsuit, the company claimed its former engineers breached their non-compete contracts, while Apple had engaged in “unfair competition.”
