In brief: Apple launches iPad Pro in Ireland.

Lenovo Group Ltd. posted a second-quarter operating loss that was smaller than analyst estimates as it cuts costs in its smartphone business to return the Motorola brand to profitability. The Pro opens up like other iPads: heat up the glue that holds the screen in place, then use a suction cup to lift it off, granting access to the internals.Like Apple’s own Smart Keyboard, the Logitech keyboard utilizes the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector, removing the need for charging or for a Bluetooth connection.

The 12.9-inch device, which starts at €939 for the 32GB wifi model and €1,269 for the wifi and sim 128GB model, was demonstrated by Dublin app firm 3D4 Medical at Apple’s San Francisco launch event in September. When Apple announced it in September, they didn’t announce a date for its release other than “Available November.” Rumors in the past week had the iPad Pro hitting stores either today, Wednesday, November 11, or Friday, November 13.

The Smart Keyboard uses butterfly mechanisms like those in the new MacBook, but Logitech’s keyboard uses full-sized backlit keys like you get in MacBook Air or Pro. Google faces a fresh round of European Union questions about its Android operating system for mobile devices as regulators quizzed rivals and customers over applications for maps, e-mail and other services. The company is taking $900 million of charges to cut costs and restructure the division to compete with Xiaomi Corp., Huawei Technologies Co. and Apple Inc. “Cost saving efforts taken in August are likely to help management achieve its turnaround target,” Joseph Ho, an analyst at GF Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd., said in a Nov. 9 report. “Yet, Lenovo will face a tough uphill battle to drive volume growth amid the highly competitive and fairly homogeneous Android-based smartphone market.” Revenue for the period climbed 16 percent to $12.2 billion. The EU wants to know whether Google Maps for phones has supplanted portable or in-car navigation devices, such as those produced by TomTom, according to a document sent to companies.

In addition to a typing mode, the Logitech case offers a viewing mode, which props the iPad up above the keyboard for watching videos or using the new Apple Pencil. Officials are also seeking data, such as user numbers, about downloaded or pre-installed mapping apps on devices, as well as costs mapmakers face to produce a mobile-ready app.

The keyboard case comes in three colors, one designed for each color Apple offers: blue for the silver ipad, black for Space Grey and red for the gold iPad. The EU accused the tech company earlier this year of positioning and displaying its own comparison-shopping service above rivals in its general search. Considering the amount of time I spend on my iPads – they’re always with me, at work and at home – a fully loaded iPad, though expensive, is a good value. Microsoft Azure and Office 365 will be generally available from local UK-based data centres in late 2016 with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online following later.

Cathriona Hallahan, MD, Microsoft Ireland said: “We are delighted to share details of further expansion of the Irish based data centre during our year of celebrations marking our 30th anniversary of investing in Ireland.” A 26-year-old University of Limerick graduate has been announced as one of two runners-up in the 2015 international James Dyson award for inventing a new lightweight underwater-breathing system. I’d known these prices since the September announcement of the iPad Pro; nevertheless I had just a moment of sticker shock before clicking “Place Order Now”. He is one of just three students out of over 700 entrants from 20 countries worldwide to receive an international prize and is the first Irish student ever in the eleven year history of the awards to win an international prize. My iPad shipped this afternoon and is scheduled to deliver by 10 am tomorrow morning, Thursday, November 12 – a full day earlier than I had expected. His design overcomes the complexities of a scuba set-up by reducing the number and size of parts needed to breathe underwater, reducing the weight and size of the apparatus.
