1. Apple Becomes First Trillionaire
Until now, there has never been a US company with a market cap of over $1 trillion. Apple is now the first. After a successful Q3 reporting and jump in stock, they surpassed both the projection and analysts’ estimates. However, this isn’t the only company striking big. Amazon is also on the road to $1T. Apple CEO, Tim Cook, had a few words to say about the milestone. “Financial returns are simply the result of Apple’s innovation, putting our products and customers first, and always staying true to our values.” Or as Dr. Evil would say, “One Trillion Dollars.” Are you wondering what $1T looks like? Check out this interactive demonstration by NY Times.

2. Google Maps Battery Percentage Sharing
In 2017, Google added the location sharing feature to Google Maps; now you’ll be able to share your phone’s battery percentage as well. If a phone battery dies, you can’t see the location where the phone turned off. However, if you know the phone is dead or almost dead, their location will not be accurate, causing less worry. Android Police and Zenly were the first to implement this feature but it’s now becoming more popular in different location sharing apps.
3. Tracking Social Media Usage
Ever wonder how much time you spend on social media? Now you can enable notifications to tell you exactly that. Instagram and Facebook have just introduced a way to stop wasting time on social media because let’s be real… we all do. The feature will even let you set your own time limit for each app. The app will only notify you, but from there, it’s up to you to decide if you actually want to listen. Don’t think you’re addicted to social media? This is the ultimate test.
