The camera for Apple’s iPad and Watch event last month zoomed around the spaceship-shaped headquarters, inspirational, thumping orchestral music playing as it rose up to meet the clear blue sky and shining sun before dropping down to a transition shot to find CEO Tim Cook walking the glass-lined halls of the corporate HQ. A large free-standing rainbow sculpture could be seen off on the right, in the center of Apple Park. With the invites for Apple’s Oct. 13 event out, you can anticipate the same kind of spectacle for the upcoming iPhone 12.

Intel Gets Government Nod to Sell Products to Huawei

U.S. chipmaking giant Intel  (INTC) – Get Report has been granted a new set of licenses from the U.S. government to continue supplying some of its chips and other manufactured components to China’s Huawei Technologies.
