Work on Apple's upcoming Campus 2 building in Cupertino has continued throughout the fall, and now we have some fresh updates on the construction coming from AppleInsider.

This light that's closer to the blue end of the spectrum is especially present in the display screens of eReaders and tablets, such as the iPad. So, just in case you were having doubts, bringing your iPad to bed isn't such a good idea for your health.
As a result of being exposed to tablet and eReader screens prior to going to sleep, people reported feeling less tired, and took longer to fall asleep and they also mentioned they were more tired the next day. So, what researchers advise is something that...

A buyback can backfire if it leaves a company unable to invest in future growth.
And now it seems that Apple has listened to Carl Icahn's hints, as the company has...
