This is wonderful to watch. I love the fact that all the robots are focused on a central point, working together to operate on something tiny.
Apple on Tuesday announced a $9 billion profit for the company’s fiscal fourth quarter on 46.9 billion of revenue. These results compare to revenue of $51.5 billion and net income of $11.1 billion, in the year-ago quarter.

It’s a big day for Apple OS updates. Earlier today iOS 10.1 was updated, and now macOS Sierra, tvOS, watchOS have all received major updates. You can update each of the OSes on their respective devices—except the watchOS, that has to be downloaded from the iPhone app before updating.
A huge release from Apple, which includes the new Portrait mode for iPhone 7 Plus users (the feature that blurs the background in your photo), is now available. You can go to Settings > General > Software Update to get the download. If you don’t have an iPhone 7 Plus, you can use FabFocus to get a similar effect on an iPhone 5s or later.
