Nokia Reminds Us Of Their History In Antenna Design In Response To Apple S Event
During an event on March 21, 2016, Apple provided a status update on its environmental initiative to be 100% renewable in all of its worldwide operations. Lisa P. Jackson, Apple's vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives who reports directly to CEO, Tim Cook, announced that as of March 2016[update], 93% of Apple's worldwide operations are powered with renewable energy. Also featured was the company's efforts to use sustainable paper in their product packaging; 99% of all paper used by Apple in the product packaging comes from post-consumer recycled paper or sustainably managed forests, as the company continues its move to all paper packaging for all of its products. Apple working in partnership with Conservation Fund, have preserved 36,000 acres of working forests in Maine and North Carolina. Another partnership announced is with the World Wildlife Fund to preserve up to 1,000,000 acres (4,000 km2) of forests in China. Featured was the company's installation of a 40 MW solar power plant in the Sichuan province of China that was tailor-made to coexist with the indigenous yaks that eat hay produced on the land, by raising the panels to be several feet off of the ground so the yaks and their feed would be unharmed grazing beneath the array. This installation alone compensates for more than all of the energy used in Apple's Stores and Offices in the whole of China, negating the company's energy carbon footprint in the country. In Singapore, Apple has worked with the Singaporean government to cover the rooftops of 800 buildings in the city-state with solar panels allowing Apple's Singapore operations to be run on 100% renewable energy. Liam was introduced to the world, an advanced robotic disassembler and sorter designed by Apple Engineers in California specifically for recycling outdated or broken iPhones. Reuses and recycles parts from traded in products.
Nokia reminds us of their history in antenna design in response to Apple s event
On October 24, an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) of the International Trade Commission (ITC), a quasi-judicial agency that can impose import bans on patent-infringing products, made an initial determination (preliminary ruling) according to which Samsung was held to infringe four Apple patents (one phone design patent and three utility patents). Since the summary of those findings was announced, no details on the reasons and on the parties' petitions for review -- other than the fact that both parties did ask the Commission, the six-member decision-making body at the top of the ITC, to overrule the judge in their favor on some items -- entered the public record until today. Now, finally, there is at least one document containing substantive information that has been made available to the general public in a redacted form: the Office of Unfair Import Investigation's ("ITC staff") response to the private parties' (Apple and Samsung) petitions for review.
However, as Katz reminds us, terahertz communications also has a cost barrier. "THz components could be highly expensive as their design is complex and time-consuming, while optical components are well known, studied, and relatively low cost," he says.
