Musk tweeted yesterday that Apple has fully resumed advertising on Twitter. In addition, Musk tweeted his thanks to advertisers who returned to Twitter.

In addition to Apple, according to Platformer, Amazon also plans to restart advertising on Twitter at a price of about 100 million US dollars (about 703 million yuan) per year.

Suspected facelift Tesla Model 3 exposed, front and rear bumpers may be redesigned

Recently, tipster @omg_Tesla / Rivian spotted a suspected upcoming facelifted Model 3 in a parking lot in Santa Cruz, California.

Through the camouflage, it can be roughly guessed that a camera seems to be added to the top of the headlights. Its function may be to eliminate blind spots, or it may be to improve the "observation" ability of the vehicle during automatic driving.

The front end is also camouflaged by a hood, likely due to a new front bumper design. There's also a chance there's a new hood too, given that the cover goes all the way to the windshield.

The rear is also camouflaged, with only the sides of the light clusters exposed, though, the taillights themselves don't appear to be any different. In addition, the entire rear bumper and trunk lid are also hidden, suggesting that these places will also adopt a new design.

AMD: Moore's Law is not dead, but it has been changed

In recent years, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang has repeatedly stated that "Moore's Law is dead" to explain why GPU prices have risen.

However, at the recent Wells Fargo TMT conference, AMD Chief Technology Officer Mark Papermaster denied that "Moore's Law is dead":

"It's not that there won't be exciting new transistor technologies… We keep improving transistor technology, but they're getting more expensive," so AMD has to use accelerators and other ways to keep costs under control.

In short, according to AMD, Moore's Law still exists, but it is no longer possible to double the number of components within two years while maintaining the same cost.

Both NVIDIA and AMD get processor wafers from TSMC. Hardware Info believes that the two narratives, while seemingly contradictory, may actually be just different perspectives.

 Anime characters as shop assistants? This Lawson convenience store is a little different

This week, the first "Green Lawson (Green Lawson)" store opened by Lawson Convenience Store in Japan officially opened, and the employees inside are all from "two-dimensional".

Unlike ordinary unmanned self-service stores, although this Lawson has no human employees serving consumers in the store, it is equipped with a lot of screens, and the anime characters inside are real waiters.

Male and female employees will help customers through the clerk characters "Aoi" and "Sorato" respectively, and the real human employees are connected behind the screen. Rosen believes that some store services still need the assistance of human employees and are not suitable for full automation, such as ticket sales.

The benefit of this model is that it allows employees with disabilities to serve customers smoothly, creating a more inclusive workforce.

In addition, the Green Lawson store also plans to launch a paper bag collection project-acting as a paper bag recycling service provider for consumers.

Next, Lawson plans to launch about 100 green Lawson stores by 2025.

Analyst: Apple's iPhone 15 model mix will be more 'balanced'

Analysts at Nomura Securities said that the configuration of Apple's iPhone 15 series to be launched next year will be more "balanced", avoiding the obvious bias towards Pro models like the iPhone 14 series.

Specifically, the standard version of the model will make consumers feel significantly upgraded compared to the previous generation. The chip will be equipped with the same 4nm process A16 chip as the iPhone 14 Pro series, and use the smart island function, using 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch LTPS OLED screens respectively, without the ProMotion adaptive refresh rate.

Pro/Ultra models will use the periscope telephoto camera for the first time, and use Sony's latest image sensor, with higher image quality and wider dynamic range. The phone's memory will be upgraded to 8GB, and the body buttons will use tactile feedback buttons.

However, in September this year, another analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will create more differentiated configuration solutions between the Pro version and the standard version to increase shipments of the Pro series.
