What to expect from Apple’s ‘scary fast’ event

today 10/29/2023
Apple is preparing to hold its second product event of the season, following the release of its new iPhone 15 lineup. The event, which will be held online, is scheduled to begin at an unusually late start time of 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. Some analysts speculate that the late start time suggests that this event may not feature major announcements from Apple. The event's tagline, "scary fast," hints at the unveiling of Apple's next-generation silicon chip, M3, as well as the Halloween season. It is expected that Apple will showcase new iMac computers powered by the M3 chip, which could boost Mac sales. Apple's transition away from Intel chips to its custom-made silicon chip, Apple Silicon, has gained attention in recent years. The performance of Apple Silicon has been praised for its processing power, thermal efficiency, and battery life. Apple computers currently hold about 8% global market share, with a 10% year-over-year growth in the second quarter of 2023. In 2020, Apple introduced its first in-house M1 silicon chipset, followed by the M2 chip in the MacBook line last year. This year, Apple is expected to introduce the M3 chip in a 24-inch iMac and potentially some MacBook Pro models. It is unclear if these new computers will be available before the holiday shopping season. The performance improvement of the M3 chip compared to its predecessor remains to be seen. Additionally, Apple may showcase new accessories as it transitions to a USB-C universal charging system. There are no rumors of a new iPad launch at this time. Apple's annual September event is typically its largest of the year, where it recently unveiled the iPhone 15 devices with various updates and features.

Despite the closures, Outback Steakhouse plans to open 18 new restaurants in the US this year with a redesigned layout.

Harvard antisemitism official abruptly resigns from new task force

Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on December 12, 2023. Brian Snyder/Reuters New York CNN — The co-chair of a newly established task force dedicated to combating antisemitism at Harvard University has resigned after just a month in the position. Harvard Business School professor Raffaella Sadun's sudden departure, announced on Sunday, is a setback for the university's efforts to address antisemitism. Harvard's interim president, Alan Garber, has appointed a new co-chair for the task force as Sadun has decided to focus on her research, teaching, and administrative responsibilities at the Business School. Despite her resignation, Sadun's contributions to shaping the task force's goals have been acknowledged by Garber and she has expressed gratitude for the opportunity to combat antisemitism at Harvard. The reasons for her quick departure are unclear. Harvard is facing scrutiny from various parties, with Jewish alumni conducting an audit to identify instances of antisemitism at the university. This audit was reported by the Boston Globe and follows the resignation of Rabbi David Wolpe from a separate Antisemitism Advisory Group. The presidential task force on antisemitism, formed just over a month ago, has faced controversy over the selection of co-chair Derek Penslar, but he remains on the task force. The task force's membership includes students, professors, and administrators, with a separate task force also established to address anti-Muslim and anti-Arab bias at Harvard. The university is under investigation by a congressional committee and the Department of Education for allegations of discrimination and hate speech on campus.
