Twitter appears to be unhappy with the runaway success of Threads, Meta's Twitter alternative that launched last night. Threads has amassed more than 30 million users in under 24 hours, making it the biggest threat to Twitter to date. According to Semafor, Twitter lawyer Alex Spiro yesterday sent Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg a letter [PDF] accusing Meta of "systemic, willful, and lawful misappropriation of Twitter's trade secrets and other intellectual property." Twitter claims that Meta hired "dozens" of former Twitter employees that "had and continue to have access to Twitter's trade secrets and other highly confidential information." The company further says that the employees "improperly retained Twitter documents and electronic devices," and that Meta took advantage of this to have…
Macworld In any business there are ups and downs. As you’d expect, ups and downs in Apple’s world can be pretty big. (It’s just a theme to pull two mostly unrelated stories together, people. Don’t think about it too hard.) Fortunately for Apple, the down here is actually for another company, but it’s a whopper. “Goldman Is Looking for a Way Out of Its Partnership With Apple” Apple Pay was just another in a long string of Apple products that pundits told us were doomed from the start. This comes after reports that Goldman Sachs has lost billions in the relationship. The Macalope doesn’t know about you, but when he gets into business deals that lose him billions of dollars,…
Macworld Welcome to our weekly Apple Breakfast column, which includes all the Apple news you missed last week in a handy bite-sized roundup. We call it Apple Breakfast because we think it goes great with a Monday morning cup of coffee or tea, but it’s cool if you want to give it a read during lunch or dinner hours too. The only way is upsell One of the quirkier stories we covered last week centered on a simple Velcro strap. Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro headset, you see, is rather heavy, and the company seems to have addressed possible issues with comfort by adding on an extra strap that goes over the top of the user’s head. But this strap is…
In April 2021, Apple announced plans to open a new campus in the Raleigh, North Carolina area. The company will spend over $1 billion on the campus, eventually employing 3,000 software engineers and machine learning employees. Lauren Ohnesorge for Triangle Business Journal: Site plans obtained by the Triangle Business Journal show the first phase of the huge project includes a 41-acre development with six buildings and a parking garage. The plans, filed with Wake County, show there will be more than 700,000 square feet of office space, 190,000 square feet of accessory space and close to 3,000 parking spaces. What’s not clear from some of the highly-redacted documents is when those buildings could go vertical at the site along Louis…

Macworld While Apple has always made great products, it has never struck the Macalope as a necessarily great place to work. Let’s take a look at how it’s going with Apple’s employees lately. Retail? Well, have to say… could be better. “Apple to Appeal Judge’s Ruling That It Violated Workers’ Rights” Yes, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that Apple had violated workers’ rights by “coercively interrogating employees” regarding their union sympathies and restricting the circulation of union flyers. This comes at the same time an unnamed Apple TV+ executive said the company favors a hardline stance against the entertainment writers’ guild in its strike because a win for writers would “encourages industries in some countries to unionize in order…
