Flamingos rule everything around her. Her clothes are covered in them. Her workspace is littered with representations of their spindly legs and hot-pink plumes.

She even adopted 20 of the winged icons to aid in her research and their preservation.
If you updated your iPhone to iOS 11.1 you maybe have noticed a weird bug: your iPhone or iPad autocorrects the letter i to an A with a crazy symbol beside it.
One day before Apple's most important product launch in years, the company has released its quarterly earnings info. As usual, Apple's fiscal Q4 doesn't contain a full three months of iPhone sales, so it's hard to tell how the launch of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus affected the company, let alone the iPhone X. But, the company did manage to sell 46.7 million iPhones in the last three months, good for a slight 2.6 percent growth compared to a year ago.
Apple has released iOS 11.1 and it comes with over 70 new emojis, the return of 3D Touch multitasking and a handful of bug fixes. Some of the new emojis include a cursing smiley face, a vampire, a hedgehog, Chinese takeout, a sandwich and a mermaid. Some existing emojis have been tweaked to improve their design as well. Once you update your OS, the new selections will appear in your keyboard, and if someone sends you one of the new emojis, they won't show up properly on your phone until you've updated.
In the midst of its intensifying legal battle with Qualcomm, Apple is designing iPhones and iPads without its long-time partner's chipsets, reports The Wall Street Journal. Instead, it's eyeing Intel and MediaTek's modem chips as a replacement, according to WSJ's sources. They add that Qualcomm has been withholding software for testing in prototypes of Apple's flagship devices, which will likely further dent relations between the two firms.

Most Chromebooks are cheap, simple and dependable, but Google’s been releasing high-end laptops that run its Chrome-based operating system for years. The latest entry in that series is the $1,000 Pixelbook, which looks primed to compete with other laptop-tablet hybrids like Microsoft’s Surface Pro and the iPad Pro.
Ever since the first version of OS X, Apple has regularly released the kernel source code for Macs. In theory, you could learn from it or even build your own projects from it. For iOS, though? Not so simple. Even if you had source code, it wouldn't matter much unless it was optimized for the ARM-based chips that you see in most phones and mobile tablets. However, Apple is shaking things up a bit. The company has quietly posted ARM-friendly source code for the XNU kernels used in iOS and macOS. That's particularly relevant if you're interested in iOS, since you now have code that would theoretically run on an iPhone or iPad. However, it's not quite the breakthrough move it seems at first blush.
Earlier this month, Apple announced that it had snagged exclusive rights to the next game from indie studio Thatgamecompany.
