Allyson Chiu, The Washington Post Published 5:56 am PDT, Tuesday, March 12, 2019 "Tim Apple" was last week's news. The moniker was born from a fleeting moment during a White House event on Wednesday when President Donald Trump appeared to mistakenly refer to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple." Video of the slip-up swiftly went viral with social media users, late-night hosts and even Cook himself getting in on the fun. (Cook changed his Twitter name to "Tim" followed by an icon of the Apple logo.) "This should have been just a fun slip of the tongue," Trevor Noah said about the gaffe on Monday. "We laugh, we move on." But, Noah said, there only seemed to be one person who couldn't let "Tim Apple" go: Trump. On Friday, Trump told Republican donors at his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, that the flub was another product of "fake news," Axios's Jonathan Swan reported. He had actually said "Tim Cook Apple" but spoke the words so fast that "the 'Cook' part of the … [Read more...] about ‘Tim Apple’ should have been a fleeting Trump moment. Now, it’s an ‘ongoing national scandal.’

Michael Liedtke, Matt O'Brien and Will Weissert Associated Press Published 8:49 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 Austin, Texas — Apple plans to build a $1 billion campus in Austin that will create at least 5,000 jobs ranging from engineers to call-center agents while adding more luster to a Southwestern city that has already become a bustling tech hub. The decision, announced Thursday, comes 11 months after Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed plans to open a major office outside California on the heels of a massive tax cut on overseas profits, which prompted the company to bring about $250 billion back to the U.S. The company said it will also open offices in Seattle, San Diego and Culver City, California, each employing at least 1,000 workers over the next three years. Apple also pledged to add hundreds of jobs each in New York; Pittsburgh; Boston; Boulder, Colorado; and Portland, Oregon. “They are just picking America’s most established superstar cities and tech hubs,” said … [Read more...] about Apple to build new Austin hub, expand in tech hotbeds

Noelle Carter Los Angeles Times Published 4:54 PM EDT Oct 24, 2018 I remember my very first caramel apple. It was during grade school, at a friend’s Halloween party. A bunch of us spent what felt like forever unwrapping bags of caramel candies, then watched as our friend’s mother slowly melted them on the stove-top, stirring as the caramel began to bubble. We took turns dipping our apples in the melted caramel, waiting for the caramel to set up before decorating our creations with candies, sprinkles and nuts. The hardest part was trying to keep the caramel and decorations away from our costumes before trick-or-treating. Looking back, the group of us must have been a sticky mess to behold. But those apples, and the experience, were magical. From carnivals to fairs, the candy-covered apple is one of those quintessential festival treats and, along with candy corn, a Halloween staple. Take a crisp apple and swirl it with a coating of rich caramel, or dip it in a pot of … [Read more...] about This Halloween, make your own caramel and candy apples
