Google E-E-A-T: What Is It & How To Demonstrate It For SEO

Google's recent layoffs have targeted engineers from its Flutter and Python teams, signaling a tightening of the belt despite a significant rise in profits reported by Alphabet. The Python team is affected, along with an undisclosed number of engineers from Flutter and Dart.

Kevin Moore, identified as a Google Product Manager for Flutter and Dart, confirmed the layoffs on Reddit, indicating decisions were made higher up within the company. This raises concerns about the fate of Flutter amidst Google's cost-cutting measures.

New iPad Pro may use an AI-enabled M4 chip

Apple's upcoming "Let Loose" iPad event, scheduled for May 7, is generating significant anticipation. Recent rumors suggest that the long-awaited OLED iPad Pro might debut with the next-gen M4 chip rather than the anticipated M3. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman speculates that this move could mark Apple's official entry into AI, potentially positioning the tablet as its first AI-powered device.

β€Žβ€Žβ€β€β€Ž β€Žβ€Ž

Gurman believes Apple will use the event to emphasize the AI capabilities of its products, setting the stage for a deeper dive into AI at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. This aligns with previous reports indicating Apple's discussions with OpenAI and Google regarding potential AI integrations into iOS 18 features.

β€Žβ€Žβ€β€β€Ž β€Žβ€Ž

Additionally, the event is expected to unveil updates for the iPad Air and accessories like the Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil. Gurman suggests that the new Apple Pencil may incorporate haptic feedback, adding further intrigue to the upcoming showcase.
