 News worth watching over the weekend

Apple will switch to OLED screens on iPad and MacBook

According to Nikkei, Apple plans to expand the use of OLED screens to iPads and MacBooks, and is considering eventually launching a foldable iPad.

Several technology industry executives said Apple plans to use the technology in its high-end iPad next year. People familiar with the matter said that OLED MacBook models are also under development and will be put into production as early as the second half of 2025.

Currently, Apple's development focus is on transitioning the iPad series to OLED screens, and will begin to evaluate the possibility of producing a foldable iPad later. There is no specific timetable within Apple for this.

According to previous reports by Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple's 2024 iPad Pro will be equipped with an OLED screen. This is the first OLED product in the iPad series and is expected to be launched around March next year.

Musk’s X obtains remittance licenses from 13 U.S. states

According to Reuters, Musk’s social media platform X received a remittance license from the 13th US state this week, taking a step closer to providing payment functions.

Pennsylvania approved the decision on Monday local time, paving the way for X to allow users to send money to each other, according to a public licensing database.

Other states that have issued money transfer licenses to X include Arizona, Georgia, Wyoming and Maryland.

Since acquiring Twitter in October 2022, Musk has said he plans to make the platform a "universal app" similar to the popular Chinese app WeChat.

According to a previous report by The Verge, Musk told X employees that users should be able to conduct their "entire financial lives" on the platform and that he expected new features to be "launched by the end of next year."

Intel's first generation Core Ultra officially released

Intel Core Ultra processor is officially released, using Intel 4 process technology and 3D high-performance hybrid architecture for the first time, and the battery life can be increased by up to 36%.

Different from previous Intel processor architecture, it adopts a new separated module architecture: composed of computing module, SoC module, graphics module and IO module.

In the SoC module, Intel integrated the neural network processing unit NPU for the first time to perform energy-efficient AI operations.

Intel said it is working with more than 100 AI ISVs to optimize AI PC and now supports large language models with up to 20 billion parameters.

Lenovo also released the world’s first Intel Core Ultra mass-produced model: Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 16 2024 Core Ultra Edition, which is now available for pre-sale.

OpenAI considers embedding GPT-4 Vision into Spectacles smart glasses

According to The Information, people familiar with the matter revealed that OpenAI recently considered embedding its object recognition software GPT-4 with Vision into products of the parent company of Snapchat.

This could bring new features to Snap's Spectacles smart glasses.

As companies like Meta, Google, Microsoft and OpenAI release more powerful artificial intelligence that can understand images and language, they are racing to apply the technology to smart glasses and other wearable devices with front-facing cameras.

This is a vision that many companies have discussed or worked toward for years, but the rise of multimodal AI offers new possibilities for them to achieve this goal. It understands not only text and audio, but also paintings, icons, objects and gestures.

It is reported that Meituan has closely inspected the Middle East market and is still waiting to see whether it will go overseas.

According to 36 Krypton, from October last year to the middle of this year, Zhu Wenqian, head of Meituan’s strategic investment overseas department, visited the Middle East many times. According to people familiar with the matter, in addition to understanding local business policies, her most important task is to investigate the competitive status of the takeaway business.

In May, Zhu Wenqian, together with Meituan CEO Wang Xing, Meituan Daojia Business Group President Wang Puzhong and many other core executives visited the Middle East again and met with many members of the Saudi royal family and ministers.

The above-mentioned people familiar with the matter revealed that in the middle of the year, Meituan once tried to recruit HRD to form a Middle East team, and considered placing the first pilot city in Riyadh, but this move was subsequently shelved due to "disagreement in senior management opinions."

The latest news is that Saudi Arabia announced a 30-year corporate income tax break for companies that move their regional headquarters to Riyadh. An investor who has been in the Middle East all year round said, "This is to steal people and companies from other Middle Eastern countries, especially the United Arab Emirates."

s Over the past many years, Dubai, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, has been the first choice for Chinese companies to go overseas to the Middle East due to its more complete infrastructure, higher per capita GDP level and friendlier business environment.

Luo Yonghao: If Dong Yuhui wants to start a business, I am willing to support him to start a business smoothly

Luo Yonghao said: "I am not seeking any benefits in return in this matter. Maybe because I am older, I have random thoughts like this from time to time: If I could travel back twenty years ago, I would really like to help young people. Luo solves some problems that may be difficult or confusing for him, but it is just a piece of cake for me.”

The movies they put out are all fantastic, and I've always followed the company with a sympathetic ear. Their innovative approach to storytelling coincides with Kojima Productions, and we will be making DS movies together.

There are already too many "movies adapted from games", but what we have to do is not just "translate" games directly, which will not only satisfy gamers, but also make movie fans excited.

We will create a world that has never been seen before in Death Stranding, a world that only movies can create. Cooperation with A24 will not only change the film industry, but also the gaming industry and the future of digital entertainment.
