Apple Acquires Israeli Firm Called LinX Imaging





According to the latest report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple has recently purchased an  Israeli camera technology called LinX Imaging. The sum of acquisition is equal to about $20 million, the reporters claim. Looks like the guys from Cupertino have decided to improve the cameras found in their iOS devices. Unlike most device manufacturers, Apple plans not to simply increase the number of megapixels, but to work on the quality of the lenses and photo sensors in general. LinX Imaging will surely help Apple to accomplish such an ambitious task as it has developed a number of technologies specifically for making the quality of images taken with a smartphone camera better.

According to the email, which was sent by Tim Cook to Apple’s employees earlier today and which was obtained by the reporters, those who work at Apple may get a decent discount on the Apple Watch. In particular, the company employees may purchase any stainless steel Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport model with 50% off the final price. What I must admit is that buying such a device for half the price seems to be a great opportunity. Apart from that, Apple employees can also get a $550 when purchasing the Apple Watch Edition.

Apple to Release iMac with 8K Screen Later This Year - LG Display



According to one interesting comment, which was originally found on the LG Display blog last week, Apple announced that it will release a brand new iMac with 8K display as soon as this year. Although the guys from Cupertino haven’t made any announcements connected either with the iMac, or its revamped screen, the rumor comes from a very reliable source.

Moreover, such content requires fast Internet connection to be delivered to users and currently only about 15% of customers in the USA have access to the connection fast enough to work with 4K videos.
