Tim Cook on merging macOS and iOS: “I don’t think that’s what users want”

In an interview published in The Sydney Morning Herald today, Apple CEO Tim Cook suggested that Apple is not working toward eventually running the same operating system on Macs and mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad, counter to widespread speculation.

The interview took place at the education-themed event in Chicago at which Apple unveiled the last iPad. Here's the relevant quote from Cook:

We don't believe in sort of watering down one for the other. Both [the Mac and iPad] are incredible. One of the reasons that both of them are incredible is because we pushed them to do what they do well. And if you begin to merge the two... you begin to make trade-offs and compromises.

So maybe the company would be more efficient at the end of the day. But that's not what it's about. You know it's about giving people things that they can then use to help them change the world or express their passion or express their creativity. So this merger thing that some folks are fixated on, I don't think that's what users want.

Earlier this year, Bloomberg ran a report saying that Apple will soon unveil tools for developers that will allow deploying an app for both macOS and iOS machines. Apps that target both platforms would be usable with either a touchscreen or a mouse/trackpad, depending on which device launches them. While some outlets are saying Cook's statement debunks that rumor, that's not necessarily the case; apps that support macOS/iOS interoperability don't require a unified operating system.

PUBG’s first-ever free weekend has begun on Xbox One (for XBL Gold members)

Ars Technica - April 19, 2018 - 10:40pm

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG)'s stratospheric rise in popularity on PC and console has been curious, in particular because of its $30 cost of entry—a fact that sets it apart from its popular, free-to-play rival Fortnite Battle Royale. For at least a few days, however, that barrier is (for the most part) going away... if you are willing to play PUBG on Xbox One.

The console's "early access" version of the 100-person, massive-arena shooter is currently free to download and play so long as you are an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. (If you do not pay for Xbox Live Gold and are interested, now might be a good time to dig out one of the many 48-hour and 7-day trials packed into Xbox game boxes.) The game's "Free Gold Weekend" promotion runs from today, April 19, until 11:59pm ET on Sunday, April 22.

In some ways, this mostly-free version doesn't offer an ideal way to get to know the popular shooter. We defer to the frame rate analysis gurus at Digital Foundry, who took a hard look in March at what had and hadn't improved for the console version in its first three months. In short: the game is fun, but the performance issues don't help.
