CUPERTINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – The charity bug has finally caught up with tech companies in the Silicon Valley.
Following yesterday’s announcement by Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan that they will be donating 99% of their wealth to charity, Apple has followed suit with an even better deal.
Apple CEO Tim Cook is set to announce today that effective January 1, 2016, the tech giant will donate 100% of its assets to its stockholders, making it the world’s largest asset divestiture in history.
CUPERTINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The stage is set for Apple’s big announcement of its new products. September 9 is the date when CEO Tim Cook unveils the new smart phones and tablets which would definitely seal his company’s status as the leader in computer technology.
While much of the speculation revolves around the new iPhone 6S, Apple says that the star of this year’s unveiling will be its new iPad Pro.
Expected to measure in at 12.9 inches, the iPad Pro will be Apple’s largest tablet, dwarfing both the 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 and the 7.9-inch iPad mini 3. At 12.9 inches, the iPad Pro would be closest in size to the 13-inch MacBook Air.
The Adobo Chronicles® learned from an inside source that the iPad Pro will come with a free carrying case and strap, similar to the ones carried around by cigarette girls that roam bars and casinos (see inset photo).
Cook said that Apple does realize that the larger iPad Pro may be difficult to carry so it is being proactive by including a complimentary carrying case and strap for its new product.
The carrying case comes in three colors — black, red and green.
CUPERTINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – On the first day that Apple Watch became available in the U.S., nearly 1 Million people pre-ordered Apple’s first wearable technology venture.
The hotly-anticipated watch sold out online within hours. Buyers of some models won’t receive their devices until May, while others will have to wait until July.
But now, those who were lucky enough to complete their online orders will have to wait for a year to get their purchased item.
The reason? There was a major production glitch.
While Apple focused on the amazing features of their wrist-size device, developers overlooked one very important, yet simple feature: Daylight Saving Time.
The Apple Watches that have been shipped out of the tech company’s production centers in China are not designed to automatically adjust to Daylight Saving Time. This means that Apple Watch owners in the U.S. willl be thrown off when it comes to telling the time when Daylight Saving Time is in effect.
Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a statement apologizing to Apple fans for the delay in delivery of the hot item, but reiterated that the company will never compromise its credbility and integrity by shipping defective items.
To compensate for the delay, Cook said that all those who pre-ordered the Apple Watch will get a 50% refund of their purchase price.
Apple Watch shipment in countries outside of the U.S. will not be affected by the shipping delay.
