Here's how Apple's UFO-like campus is coming along

On a vast lot in Cupertino, California, Apple is building an immaculate world. Campus 2, the massive expansion of the tech giant’s offices is a tremendous work of engineering, a planned facility dedicated to creating and sustaining the success of the most valuable company in the world. So what does it look like when a company tries to build a bridge to the future, within the constraints of the present? It looks like a massive, 20,000-car garage, covered in solar panels, that’s what. The drone-shot footage comes from Sexton Videography, whose latest campus tour shows the under-construction behemoth.

NASA's app turns your Apple TV into an ISS observation deck

According to NASA, the space agency's official app has been downloaded more than 17 million times on iOS, Android and Fire OS. Today, that same window into space exploration got even bigger with the addition of a new version for Apple TV. That means: high-definition versions of NASA TV, on-demand NASA videos, 3D satellite tracking maps, realtime views of the Earth from the International Space Station and a stellar new backdrop for your next cocktail party. In addition to all the livestreams and launch videos, the NASA app also allows you to queue up a slideshow of more than 15,000...

Security cameras had captured a man entering and exiting the apartment around the time that they thought Godfrey was killed. They arrested the suspect on a charge of murder. At that point in a case, prosecutors in New York have less than a week to gather the facts needed to persuade a grand jury to indict the suspect. So the prosecutor on this case, Jordan Arnold of...

Meet the iPhone SE, which packs iPhone 6s performance in a 4-inch body

There’s a new iPhone in town, and it looks pretty familiar. The iPhone SE, which is available to preorder on Thursday, is nearly identical to the iPhone 5s but has 6s guts, which makes it a compelling buy for people who love 4-inch phones but want the latest hardware features. The 6s mini, as I prefer to call it, has an A9 chip and M9 coprocessor, which means it has double the speed of a 5s and is three times faster when it comes to graphics performance. The SE has always-on fitness-tracking, hands-free Siri, a 12-megapixel camera that can shoot...

The FBI director at the Apple judiciary hearing gets schooled on security tech by a congressman

“I don’t know.” “I don’t know if that would work.” “I have no idea.” “I’m not sure I even fully understand the questions.” Safe to say, Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey was unprepared for a barrage of technical questions by California congressman Darrell Issa (R), during a hearing on iPhone encryption. The House Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing today (March 1) after Apple refused to comply with a federal court order to help the FBI break into the iPhone 5c of one of the San Bernardino shooters by bypassing a security feature that erases its data after...
