Apple and Facebook spin antitrust claims: We’re misunderstood

Apple and Facebook spin antitrust claims: We’re misunderstood

In late July, a Congressional subcommittee successfully compelled four major tech company CEOs to formally answer questions about allegedly monopolistic business practices — a public spectacle marred only by COVID-19-related isolation of the attendees.

Google Maps is coming to Apple Watch, adding CarPlay Dashboard support

Log Outbecame the for Apple devices years ago, but Google apparently isn’t quite ready to cede either the growing wearables market or the automotive business to its chief rival. Today, Google announced that will be adding both an app and support for CarPlay Dashboard, increasing the likelihood that Apple users will reconsider Google’s potential contribution to their walks and rides.Google Maps for Apple Watch appears to be a very stripped-down version of the iPhone app, offering users step-by-step directions and estimated arrival times — but only for destinations already stored within the...

Holographic VR meetings just became real, whether you’re ready or not
