LG closing its mobile phone business

LG Electronics Inc. (LG) announced that it is closing its mobile business unit. The decision was approved by its board of directors earlier today.

LG’s strategic decision to exit the incredibly competitive mobile phone sector will enable the company to focus resources in growth areas such as electric vehicle components, connected devices, smart homes, robotics, artificial intelligence and business-to-business solutions, as well as platforms and services.

I really like LG as a company. I have several LG TVs and they make quality products, but the smartphone business is dominated by Apple and Samsung. It makes sense for LG to focus its efforts in places it can have a larger impact.

The Dalrymple Report: Apple product security and stealing MacBooks

Apple is clamping down on product security, a move the company hopes will stop leaks about its future products. A brother and sister stole millions of dollars of MacBooks from Stanford, and got caught, of course. A cool video takes us down memory lane with some old Apple products.

The Dalrymple Report: RIP HomePod, Intel ads

Apple discontinued the original HomePod this week. It’s a product I absolutely love and use every day, but I understand the move. Also, Intel debuted some new ads with Justin Long, who Apple used in its “I’m a Mac” ad campaign. These new ads aren’t nearly as good.

Apple Maps now displays COVID-19 vaccination locations

Apple today updated Apple Maps with COVID-19 vaccination locations from VaccineFinder, a free, online service developed by Boston Children’s Hospital that provides the latest vaccine availability for those eligible at providers and pharmacies throughout the US. Users can find nearby COVID-19 vaccination locations from the Search bar in Apple Maps by selecting COVID-19 Vaccines in the Find Nearby menu or by asking Siri, “Where can I get a COVID vaccination?”

The Apple Maps placecard for each vaccine site will include the operating hours, address, phone numbers, and a link to the provider’s website, where Maps users can learn more about available vaccines and book appointments. The initial rollout includes more than 20,000 locations, with Apple adding more sites in the coming weeks.

Apple is also allowing local businesses to update their placecards to display COVID information, like shopping hours. Incredibly helpful information all within Maps.

The Dalrymple Report: HomePod, Safari, and Beeple
