Apple Exploring Making its Own Displays for Watches and iPhones: Report

One of the major keys to Apple’s success over the years has been the tight control it exerts over the components in its devices. Many things such as the iPhone’s A-series processors and metal and glass chassis are designed in house, in order to meet the company’s demanding specifications, before being sent to big manufactures like Foxconn or TSMC. However, when it comes to displays, Apple has relied on what are essentially off-the-shelf components from third-parties like LG (which makes the screen currently used in the Apple Watch) and Samsung (who makes the screen used in the iPhone X).

Picadilly Circus’s New Screen Will Display Ads Based on the People and Cars Around It

George Orwell was very worried about governments abusing their power with mass surveillance, and right as he was to be concerned he never really considered the fact that private companies would be at it to.
