Apple will spend $2 billion to turn its failed sapphire plant into a global command center

Apple plans to spend $ 2 billion turning the site of its failed sapphire production plant into a data center. Apple tells Bloomberg that the site, located in Mesa, Arizona, “will serve as a command center for our global networks.” The 1.3 million-square-foot building will be powered entirely by renewable energy and is expected to create 150 full-time jobs and 300 to 500 construction and trade jobs — far fewer than the 2,000 or so jobs that the sapphire production plant was supposed to make. “This multibillion-dollar project is one of the largest investments we’ve ever made,” Apple says.

Apple initially built the plant for GT Advanced Technologies, which Apple forwarded a bunch of money to so that it could start building furnaces and…

This brutalist monolith will soon be an ebola treatment center

In the course of a few months, the ebola virus has spread throughout West Africa, causing some 9,000 deaths worldwide. Citizens are often turned away from over-capacity medical facilities or, fueled by hysteria, are fearful of the very nursing staff meant to help them. What’s more, researchers say we’ll see “much more suffering and many more deaths during childbirth and from malaria, tuberculosis, HIV-AIDS, enteric and respiratory illnesses, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and mental health during and after the Ebola epidemic” as a consequence.

Yahoo Directory, once the center of a web empire, will shut down at year’s end

Yahoo Directory, a site that was once the center of Yahoo’s internet dynasty, is being shut down at the end of the year. However, unless you’ve been using the internet for a couple of decades, you’ve probably never heard of the site. Let’s hop in an internet time machine and set the dial back to 1994, when Jerry Lang and David Filo founded Yahoo. The site, “Jerry and David’s Guide to the World Wide Web,” was little more than a hand-curated list of sites on the internet, sorted by category.

Last night on ‘Doctor Who:’ journey to the center of a Dalek

For this season of The Doctor, Ross and Kwame Opam will be sounding off on each episode in a series of emails we’ll be publishing on the site. Warning: spoilers ahead.

After a season premiere all about Peter Capaldi finding himself as the new Doctor, “Into the Dalek” is his first true post-regeneration adventure. Or rather, it’s more of a parable: an outrageously weird story that serves to highlight a darker truth of the Doctor’s own soul. “The Doctor goes literally into his worst enemy to try and understand good and evil… and comes out learning about the good and evil in himself.”  It’s a great pitch for an episode that mostly pulls it off. Mostly.
