Kim Jong-Un sure looks happy with his MacBook Pro

Apple has a large number of high-profile fans, but there are always bound to be one or two less desirable (but equally famous) ones who slip through the cracks. One of these is North Korea’s super villain dictator Kim Jong-un, who apparently is quite the Apple fan — as evidenced by a recent photo posted […]

iOS 9 adoption just keeps slowing down

iOS 9 adoption is continuing to limp slowly towards 100%. A couple weeks after we reported that iOS 9 adoption had “run out of steam” at 67%, it’s gained a few more percent points.

Apple May Build Massive 4.15 Million Square Foot Campus in North San Jose

Apple is hoping to sign an agreement with the city of San Jose that would allow it to build a massive campus in the northern part of the city, reports the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Apple is in talks with city officials over a development agreement that would lead to a campus up to 4.15 million square feet, larger than both its existing Infinite Loop campus and its second Apple Campus under construction in Cupertino.

The draft agreement, which is not yet completed, will come before the city’s Planning Commission later this month, officials said. It would lock in development rights – and expectations for both sides – for the next 15 years in an area that sprawls across 86 acres north of Highway 101 across from the Mineta San Jose International Airport.

Apple has already bought or leased much of the land that would house the campus in a series of real estate deals that have happened over the last few months. Apple purchased a 296,000 square foot research and development building in May, and it leased a 43-acre development site in August, which is approved for up to 2.8 million square feet of office space. Apple has also leased a nearby 202,000 square-foot office building. The agreement covers all three of these sites.

According to the Silicon Valley Business Journal, the development agreement is not the same as a concrete project and gives no guarantee that Apple will build on the space, but given Apple’s land grab in the area, it seems the company has plans for something big.

Along with its expansion into North San Jose, Apple has also purchased or leased office space in other Bay Area locations. In early October, Apple signed a deal for a 770,00 square foot campus in Sunnyvale, and back in June, it leased 76,000 square feet of office space in the popular (and pricy) South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood in San Francisco.

HTC: We didn’t copy the iPhone, Apple copied us

HTC has been getting a lot of stick for its brand new One A9, which looks just like another iPhone clone. But the Taiwanese company insists that the design was its own idea, and that Apple actually copied HTC’s first unibody phone that was released in 2013. “We’re not copying,” said Jack Tong, president of HTC […]
