Faced with EU pressure, Apple may open up sideloading

According to technology reporter Mark Gurman, based on the European Union's "Digital Market Law" that came into effect on November 1, Apple, as a "gatekeeper", may allow users to use third-party app stores on the iPhone and iPad, otherwise it may face up to 80 billion dollar fine.

This means that users do not have to download apps through the App Store afterwards, thus avoiding paying "intermediary fees" of up to 30%. However, the report also pointed out that after the opening of sideloading, the verification steps used to detect sideloading risks may still be charged.

Currently, the App Store team is working hard to open up "key elements of the Apple platform," and the change is expected to be officially launched in iOS 17 in 2023.

In addition to the European Union, the United States is currently considering legislation requiring Apple to open sideloading.

 When Apple wakes up from the dream of building a car

Apple founder Steve Jobs famously said, “Apple is more concerned with being the best in a particular category than it is with being the first.”

However, Apple's perfectionism may be the cause of the current embarrassment of the Apple Car.

From the very beginning, Apple did not want to benchmark against any existing company or any model in the industry, but was eager to create a product that had never been launched, could fully realize fully automatic driving, and might not even have a steering wheel.

However, due to the high technical barriers, no large enterprise has set the development goal as L5, and Apple is the only one.

Secondly, the L4 level of automatic driving already means that it can enter fully automatic driving. In the event of a traffic accident, the L4 automatic driving company is completely responsible for the accident.

Furthermore, the process and upstream and downstream enterprises involved in car manufacturing are much more complicated than mobile phones. In building the iPhone, Apple adheres to the concept of "necessary and necessary", and there are still companies that can satisfy it. In terms of automobile manufacturing, it is undoubtedly a fantasy to start mass production with a goal that no one in the industry has achieved.

So, after years of planning to build a car, Apple itself abandoned its high standards and only planned to release a mass-market product. However, if the car products that Apple has been working hard for twelve years are not subversive, then what is the point of Apple making cars?

After waking up from the dream of perfectionism, Apple needs to accept a reality: In the field of cars, it may be a mediocre latecomer.

Rich sources and low cost, nuclear waste batteries will drive spacecraft to explore deep space

On the 14th, "Nature" pointed out in a report that European scientists are developing a battery powered by nuclear waste "americium-241".

Americium, a byproduct of the decay of plutonium and one of the more intractable components of nuclear waste, has never been used as fuel before. Compared with the current plutonium, the biggest advantage of americium is that it is cheaper, more plentiful, and has a longer life, which can reuse otherwise useless waste.

The European Space Agency, ESA, hopes that by the end of the century, these devices will be able to provide long-term power to spacecraft without relying on solar panels, helping the agency explore the moon and the far reaches of the solar system.

For example, exploration missions can be carried out on the moon for 14 Earth days at night, and it can be applied to solar system exploration missions beyond Jupiter.
