In Greater China, we saw the importance of swift action — and the critical importance of social distance — to slow the virus' spread," according to Apple's head of retail Deidre O'Brien. "As time has gone on, we've continued to refine and expand our in-store health and safety measures, which have proven so effective in places like Greater China, where our stores have been safely open for months," he added.

"Face coverings will be required for all of our teams and customers, and we will provide them to customers who don't bring their own.

What to Expect When Apple Transitions to Mini-LED Technology 2020/05/15 19:50:01 Mac Rumors
Apple is planning to introduce mini-LED displays across much of its product lineup, adding the technology to the Mac notebooks and iPads. Mini-LED displays will bring some useful technology improvements to Apple's products, as outlined in our guide below. What is Mini-LED? LCD panels used by Apple use LEDs, or light-emitting diodes inside for backlighting purposes to light up the display. Mini-LEDs, as the name suggests, are smaller diodes that are less than 0.2mm. A device like an iPad features an LCD panel with LEDs for backlighting, with the panel used to control where light is displayed on the screen. Depending on what's on the iPad's display, the LEDs are lit up fully or dimmed down for dark scenes. Compared to a traditional LCD, a panel light with mini-LEDs uses many more LEDs, which means there are more total dimming zones to work with. A traditional display might use hundreds of LEDs, but a mini-LED display could have more than a thousand. Apple, in fact, is said to be exploring mini-LED displays that use 10,000 LEDs, each one below 200 microns.

Online sales have spiked over 1,500% at struggling video game retail giant GameStop, according to a new report (GME, NTDOY, ATVI) 2020/05/15 18:03:18 Business Insider
GameStop is, by far, the world's largest video game retailer. The company has been in trouble for years for a variety of reasons, but its greatest challenge is the ongoing shift from physical game purchases to digital. The coronavirus pandemic has been an unexpected boost for the video game industry, which had its strongest March sales month in over 10 years — and GameStop has benefited greatly from that sales surge. The company's online sales have surged over 1,500%, according to a new report from Earnest Research in the New York Times . Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Like Blockbuster Video and Tower Records before it, video game retailer GameStop faces major challenges to its business model from the internet. As more people buy video games through digital storefronts, fewer buy games on physical discs from GameStop. That trend was a huge problem for the company — until the coronavirus pandemic forced millions of people indoors. Many of those people, with loads of free time on their hands suddenly, turned to video games.
