Apple lancia la sua carta di credito
Apple si allea a Goldman Sachs per lanciare una carta di credito in unione ai nuovi servizi per iPhone. Il debutto della nuova credit card, sulla quale esistono voci dalla fine dell’anno scorso, è previsto per la primavera. Sarà una inaugurazione, ha rivelato il Wall Street Journal, con qualche cautela: inizialmente la carta verrà offerta e sperimentata da dipendenti Apple, un test che comincerà già nelle prossime settimane. Diventerà però presto un trampolino verso l’esercito di centinaia di milioni di persone che oggi hanno in tasca un iPhone. (Fonte: Retail Institute Italy)

Intel aims to push beyond phones with 5G infrastructure deals
Intel Corp Corp on Monday announced new chips and partnerships that it hopes will persuade its investors that the billions of dollars in research and development that it has poured into 5G networking technology will pay off. Intel, the world’s second-largest chip maker by revenue, got into the wireless data business with its acquisition of German modem maker Infineon in 2011. Its sole major modem customer is Apple Inc, whose iPhones feature Intel modem chips to connect to mobile data networks. But the cutthroat modem business, where Intel competes against rivals such as Qualcomm Inc and MediaTek Inc, has lower margins than Intel is accustomed to making on its flagship processor chips that go into personal computers and data centers.
