    Apple Is About to Introduce an iPhone Feature It Doesn't Want You to Use

    Apple will allow iPhone users to switch off the performance reductions that the company has introduced in the last year to counteract the effects of ageing batteries, Tim Cook has said. Cook’s comments came in a Wednesday ABC interview that largely dealt with Apple’s plans to pay $38 billion in taxes to repatriate hundreds of billions of overseas dollars—a move it attributes to the recent tax overhaul—and to recruit 20,000 workers over the next five years. The interview also delved into the battery controversy, which hit last month when it emerged that Apple aapl was artificially degrading the performance of certain older iPhone models.

    An Asteroid Bigger Than the World's Tallest Building Will Fly by Earth Next Month

    A massive “potentially hazardous” asteroid spanning more than the length of the world’s tallest building will fly by our planet on Feb. 4. The roughly .7-mile long asteroid is considered longer than the Burj Khalifa, which at .5 miles high currently stands as the world’s tallest building, and will fly at a speed of 67,000 miles per hour just 2.6 million miles from Earth. “This is a fairly routine close approach of an object that we have known about for many years,” said Paul Chodas who manages the Center for Near Earth Object Studies at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Asteroid 2002 AJ192 was discovered in 2002.

    Another top Silicon Valley investor slams politically correct tech culture, praises China

    Mike Moritz, a top partner at Silicon Valley's most successful venture capital firm, says that the local tech culture has descended into "soul-sapping discussions" about "the inequity of life," and compared it unfavorably with the work ethic in the Chinese tech scene. Moritz, a managing partner at Sequoia Capital, wrote in the Financial Times that Silicon Valley's culture is becoming "unhinged" with discussions of things like the politics of speakers at tech companies, debates over work-life balance, and "grumbling about the need for a space for musical jam sessions." He contrasts this with China, where: "Top managers show up for work at about 8am and frequently don't leave until 10pm. Most of

    How Emirates Airline Just Singlehandedly Saved the Airbus A380

    Emirates Airline has pledged to order up to 36 extra Airbus A380s, and, in doing so, has essentially saved the European firm’s flagship commercial plane from the scrapheap. The double-decker A380 is very expensive to run, and only really makes commercial sense on fully-booked flights. Airbus has only delivered 222 of them since they entered service in 2007 and, just a few days ago, the company warned it may have to end production unless a big new order came in soon.

    There’s Been A Massive Shift To The Right In The Immigration Debate

    President Trump’s disparaging comments in an Oval Office meeting last week about Haiti and “shithole” (or “shithouse”) African countries felt like the immigration debate had reached a new place. It has — but not just because of that meeting. There’s been a massive conservative shift in the ongoing debate over immigration. With Republicans in control of the White House and Congress, and some of the party pushing a hard anti-immigrant stance, Democrats and immigration advocates have had to greatly temper their hopes for reform. The last big effort at immigration reform came five years ago, in a bill written by a bipartisan group of senators known as the Gang of Eight. It included a path to citizenship
