What Will Apple Announce At Tuesday’s Massive Launch Event? Predictions On The New iPhone 12 And iPhone 12 Pro

This year’s major iPhone event is like no other. Like pretty much event manufacturer, it has moved to a virtual launch. The extensive virtual Worldwide Developer Conference has given Tim Cook’s Apple experience in this style of event, but the iPhone 12 family is the keystone product launch of the year. Without a hand-picked adoring crowd to cover the stage, will the missing features of the iPhone 12 stand out? 

Since the launch of the iPhone 11 family, the Android-powered competition has pushed ahead with innovative features such as fast refreshing screens, 5G connectivity, and fast charging. What can the new iPhones deliver to match this challenge? And will Apple’s second-line products help deliver success?

If you want a checklist to follow, I’d expect Apple to lean into a triplet of messages… these will be the fastest iPhones ever; these will be the iPhones with the longest battery

IonQ Releases A New 32-Qubit Trapped-Ion Quantum Computer With Massive Quantum Volume Claims

Last May, I had a discussion with Peter Chapman, CEO of IonQ, a start-up quantum computing company.  Before coming to IonQ, Chapman worked for Amazon, where he was responsible for all the technical complexities of Amazon Prime.  IonQ had accomplished a lot in the twelve months that Chapman had been at the helm, so I was looking forward to talking to him. 

My biggest surprise during that discussion was that IonQ was simultaneously working on its next three generations of its trapped-ion quantum computers – 5th, 6th, and 7th generations. 

In a recent follow-up with Chapman, including Chris Monroe, IonQ’s Co-founder and Chief Scientist, we discussed IonQ’s release of its 5th generation quantum hardware.  Keep in mind that the 6th and 7th generations are still in development. Chapman said that each generation would be smaller and more powerful than its predecessor when released.  Although he

Massive, 50-year-old great white shark dubbed ‘Queen of the Ocean’ caught and tagged

Scientists from OCEARCH, an NGO that is tagging and sampling white sharks, described the female shark as “Queen of the Ocean” and say they have called her Nukumi.

“We named her ‘Nukumi’, pronounced noo-goo-mee, for the legendary wise old grandmother figure of the Native American Mi’kmaq people,” Ocearch wrote in a Facebook post Saturday.

The Mi’kmaq culture has deep roots in Nova Scotia, according to the post.

“With the new data we’ve collected, this matriarch will share her #wisdom with us for years to come,” OCEARCH wrote.

Nukumi is the largest of eight great whites that researchers have sampled during the current expedition, which has been running for 27 days as of Monday.

OCEARCH also posted a video showing Nukumi lying on a special submersible platform built onto the side of its research vessel with researchers around her, and subsequently swimming away.

OCEARCH is an ocean data-collection organization that has

What Caused The Massive Microsoft Teams, Office 365 Outage Yesterday? Here’s What We Know

Cloud-based Microsoft applications, including Microsoft Teams, went down across a swathe of the U.S. yesterday.

Users of Microsoft Office 365, Outlook, Exchange, Sharepoint, OneDrive and Azure also reported they were unable to login. Instead, they were presented with a “transient error” message informing them there was a problem signing them in.

These issues appear to have started at around 5 p.m. ET, with services not returning to normal for many until 10 p.m. ET.

Indicative of the times we live in, whenever such an outage impacts so many people, the question of whether it’s an ongoing cyber-attack is front and center.

However, there is no evidence this was the case last night. So what did happen to take down access to Microsoft Teams, with work from home users taking to Twitter to complain of
