Apple has joined an organization that develops wireless charging standards, giving credence to rumors that the tech giant could eventually cut the cord when the iPhone 8 is released.
The tech giant is well-positioned to offer powerful augmented reality features in its tenth anniversary iPhone that's expected to be announced later this year.
Project Loon, Google's balloon-based internet concept, could be close to getting off the ground. Samsung Vice Chairman Jay Y. Lee has been formally arrested on bribery charges.
The tech giant's hiring of a new exec from Amazon comes as pay-TV streaming apps and a burgeoning smart home market spell new opportunities.
