Apple Environment

Why is Apple the only huge tech company that really cares about the environment?

Why is Apple the only huge tech company that really cares about the environment?

Ahead of Earth Day, Apple on Monday published its annual Environmental Responsibility Report covering the company’s ongoing commitment to “leave the world better than we found it.” The new environmental report comes hot on the heels of last week’s announcement that Apple will be purchasing 36,000 acres of forest land in order to responsibly and sustainably manage its paper supply chain for items such as packaging and marketing materials.

The full report underscores Apple’s seemingly unrivaled commitment to being as environmentally friendly and conscious as possible. Apple today  is one of the few tech company’s willing to address head on some of today’s more pressing environmental issues. What’s more, the level of transparency and the depth of information Apple provides in its environmental report is rarely, if ever, seen in Silicon Valley, with Google and Facebook being the lone exceptions.

Which boots up faster? An Apple Watch or an iPhone?

Which boots up faster? An Apple Watch or an iPhone?

With the Apple Watch launch slated to get rolling this Friday, it’s kind of funny to think that we’ll soon be living in a world where we have to boot up our watches. While Apple has slowly but surely released a few Apple Watch guided tour videos, we haven’t yet seen what it’s like to actually turn the device on for the first time.

Until now.

Apple Original Homepage

What the first Apple.com homepage looked like

What the first Apple.com homepage looked like

Many of the earliest website designs to populate the web are nothing more than distant and irretrievable memories. While sites like the The Internet Archive Wayback Machine provide a great way to take a stroll back through Internet time, their index only goes back so far.

So it goes with the Apple.com homepage. Archived versions of Apple’s homepage on the Wayback Machine only go back to October 1996, a shame given that Apple had a website up and running for many years prior.

One way the new Retina MacBook is better than any other Mac

Some people have criticized the Retina MacBook since its official announcement both for its lone USB-C port and for the fact that it can’t deliver the same performance as other 2015 laptops. However, these criticisms have often ignored that Apple is giving a preview of the future for its mobile devices. If you want more evidence that the new MacBook is head of its time, look no further than a new discovery made during a recent teardown that shows how it’s better than any other Mac in one crucial aspect.
