Referring to earthquake forecasting as a hard nut to crack, Wu said the work can

Apple Inc on Friday said it is canceling the AirPower wireless charging mat that
the company announced in 2017 on t
he same day as its iPhone X, a rare public retreat for the gadget maker known for splashy product launches.
The mat was intended to wirelessly charge up to three Apple products at
once, such as an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones.
While wireless charging has spread through the gadget industry, chargi
ng three devices at once with higher wattage “fast charging” has proved challengi
ng. Furniture seller Ikea, for example, sells a $60 matt that can handle three
phones but it only features slower 5-watt charging.
In a statement, Apple said that it had concluded that its AirPower mat “will
not achieve our high standards.”
“We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch,”
Dan Riccio, Apple’s senior vice president of Hardware Engin
eering, said in the statement. “We continue to believe that the future is

become the largest smartphone vendor in Thailand with a market share of 22.2 percent, gro
wing about 70 percent year-on-year, according to the market research company Canalys.
Its products and services are also well received in other South Asian and Sout

In 2018, Oppo shipped 113 million units of smartphones wor
ldwide, garnering a global market share of more than 8 percent, according to IDC data.
Other Chinese smartphone makers, including Huawei, Xiaomi and Vivo, are also looking beyon
d their home turf for growth. In this context, Oppo believes it has an edge over others as it first started its i
nternational journey as early as in 2009 in Thailand, much before others jumped on the going-global bandwagon.
”Green Book” won best picture at the Oscars, marking the final twist on a night of historic firsts, filled with suspense until the final prize.
Despite controversies surrounding the film, and many outspoken critics, the per
iod drama about race relations in the 1960s felt like a more conventional best-picture choi
ce than its two top rivals, both of which had to overcome key hurdles: “Black Panther” represented the fi
rst superhero movie to earn such recognition, while “Roma” not only would have been the first foreign-lan
guage winner, but was likely hobbled by those who still see its distributor, Netflix, as an upstart in the movie world.
The Oscars compensated for a host-free ceremony with a nigh
t of breakthroughs, moving briskly through the categories in a concerted effort to sh
orten the run time, amid a night marked by greater inclusiveness and that spread the wealth among the nominees.
Award voters extended honors to a number of blockbusters, including “Black Panther,” which
earned several technical awards; and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the biography of Queen and the band’s fron
tman, Freddie Mercury, earned four Oscars — the most of any film — including Rami Malek’s first for the central role.
