Apple’s Biggest Chinese Rivals May Be Coming to the US
China’s biggest smartphone manufacturers are keen to take on Apple Inc. (APPL) in the U.S. after comfortably beating the iPhone maker in their home market, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.
Huawei Technologies Co. and Xiaomi Corp. are believed to be in talks with U.S. wireless operators about selling their flagship smartphones to American consumers as early as next year.
The sources said both companies are negotiating with the likes of AT&T Inc. (T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) two of the largest U.S. wireless networks. Talks are reportedly going well, although an agreement could still fail to materialize, the sources added.
Apple’s most powerful computer ever, the iMac Pro, is now available for purchase.
The iMac Pro was announced earlier this year and packs up to 18 processor cores, a 27-inch Retina 4K display, and is the first Mac ever to support virtual reality. The iMac Pro will work with the HTC Vive virtual reality headset.
Apple says the target audience for the new iMac is professionals who need as much power as possible out of their Mac, including video editors who might want to edit 4K and even 8K video.

How to decide if bitcoin is safe for you to trade
Is Bitcoin a great investment opportunity or a risky bubble waiting to burst like 1637’s Dutch tulip mania?
Bitcoin’s run-up has grown famous. Late Thursday morning, the digital currency was trading for more than $19,000 on exchanges in South Korea, before closing around $16,600 on Bitfinex, a large cryptocurrency exchange.
The $19,000-ish price was up more than $5,000 in less than 24 hours. It was up from $12,000 at the start of the week. And it was up from a little more than $1,000 on Jan. 1.
Not to belabor the point, but in 2016 alone the currency gained more than 100%.
