CUPERTINO, Calif. — In reaction to declining sales of tablet computing devices, Apple’s chief executive, Timothy D. Cook, recently remarked that tablets had hit a “speed bump” that was nothing to be concerned about.加利福尼亚州库比提诺——鉴于平板电脑设备销量下滑,苹果公司(Apple)首席执行官蒂莫西·D·库克(Timothy D. Cook)最近表示,平板电脑撞上了一个“减速带”,但这种情况无需担心。Now Apple is trying to accelerate past the bump.如今,苹果正试图加速经过这条减速带。The company on Thursday introduced new models of iPads, including a major revision for its iPad Air, the larger and more expensive model, and some improvements for its smaller sibling, the iPad Mini 3.周四,苹果推出了新款iPad,对更大更贵的iPad Air做出了重大改动,还对尺寸较小的iPad Mini 3做了一些改进。Apple said the iPad Air 2 was 18 percent thinner and 40 percent faster than the last one, a surprising change — and a bit of an engineering feat — because Apple made the previous version thinner and faster just last year. Essentially, the new iPad Air is thinner than a pencil. The new iPads will be available Oct. 24.苹果表示,iPad Air 2比上一代薄了18%,快了40%,这个改变有些出人意料,在工程上也是一大成就——因为苹果去年才刚刚让上一版iPad变得更轻更快。可以说,新款iPad Air比一铅笔还薄。它将从10月24日开始发售。“It’s unbelievably gorgeous and look how thin it is. Can you even see it?” said Mr. Cook, holding the new iPad in front of an audience of members of the news media and Apple employees at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters.“它实在太棒了,看看它多么薄。差点都看不到了吧?”库克在苹果位于硅谷的总部拿着新款iPad,对媒体和苹果员工说道。The iPad Air 2 has an improved camera, and it has a display designed to reduce reflections. The tablet has 10 hours of battery life, same as the previous version. It has a starting price of 0. The iPad Mini 3 starts at 0 — but it’s not thinner than the last version.iPad Air 2改善了照相功能,显示屏的设计还能减少反光。与上一款一样,其电池续航时间为10小时。它的起售价格为500美元(约合3000元人民币)。iPad Mini 3的起售价格为400美元——但并不比上一款薄。Apple added its fingerprint sensor, called Touch ID, to each of the new iPads. The technology is used to log into the iPad in place of a typed passcode. It can also be used to make in-app purchases with Apple’s new mobile payments system, Apple Pay, which will be available Monday.苹果给每个新款iPad都增加了称为Touch ID的指纹传感器。用户将通过这项技术进入iPad,而无需像之前那样输入密码。指纹传感器还可以通过苹果的新移动付系统Apple Pay来在应用中进行付。Apple Pay将于周一推出。Apple said iOS 8.1, the next update for the software that runs Apple’s mobile devices, would also be available Monday.苹果宣布,周一还将推出iOS 8.1,即苹果移动设备运行软件的下一版更新。Apple also added gold as a color option for the new iPads.新款iPad还增加了金色版供用户选择。Apple has made big changes to its iPads more quickly than it has with other Apple products, like the iPhone, which in the past has been redesigned every two years.苹果对iPad做出重大修改的速度比对iPhone等其他苹果产品更快。过去,每隔两年,iPhone才会重新设计一次。Why the difference? For one, an iPad gives Apple’s engineers more physical space to tinker around. And from a business standpoint, Apple has to do more with the iPad to maintain healthy sales.为何会有这种差别?首先,iPad给了苹果工程师更多进行改进的实际空间。从商业角度来看,苹果需要对iPad投入更多,才能维持良好的销售业绩。In the second quarter, Apple’s iPad sales declined 9.3 percent compared with the same period a year ago, according to the industry analysis firm IDC. And the worldwide market for tablet sales is starting to cool. While shipments of tablets exploded from 18 million in 2010 to 207 million last year, they are expected to increase just 11 percent this year, according to another research firm, Gartner. Last year, shipments had increased 55 percent.据科技研究公司IDC透露,二季度苹果iPad的销售量同比下降了9.3%,全球市场的平板电脑销售也开始降温。据另一家调研公司高德纳(Gartner)透露,去年,平板电脑的出货量从2010年的1800万台飙升至2.07亿台,今年全球平板电脑的出货量只会增加11%,而去年的增幅达到了55%。But the iPad is still Apple’s second-biggest moneymaker, accounting for about 10 percent of its profit. That is a long way from the iPhone, which accounts for about 70 percent of its profit, but still important.但iPad仍是苹果的第二大收入来源,产生的利润在苹果总利润中占10%。尽管这距离iPhone产生的利润——70%——还有很大的差距,但它仍是一款重要的产品。Also at the event on the company’s campus, Apple released its new Macintosh operating system, OS X Yosemite, which it introduced this year. The software system, which is a free download, has a new design with new icons and more vibrant colors.在苹果总部举行的发布会上,苹果还推出了新的麦金塔(Macintosh)操作系统OS X Yosemite,苹果公司于今年发布了该系统。新版系统有新设计、新图标,色更加鲜明。A key feature is called Continuity, which makes it easier to juggle content across different Apple devices. For example, a user can be making a presentation on a Mac, and then swipe up from the corner of an iPad to resume working on the same presentation.一种称为Continuity的关键功能,使在不同苹果设备中进行同步操作变得更容易。例如,用户可以用Mac做演示,然后滑动iPad屏幕,继续刚才的演示。In addition, the company said WatchKit, a tool kit for software makers to use in developing apps for its coming smart watch, would be released next month. The Apple Watch, which Apple demonstrated last month, is still on track for a release early next year, according to Mr. Cook.除此之外,该公司还表示将于下月发布软件开发者用来为苹果的智能手表开发应用时所需的工具WatchKit。苹果上个月展示了Apple Watch,但据库克透露,按照计划,这款产品将于明年早些时候推出。Apple on Thursday also released a new iMac, a desktop computer with a high-resolution, 27-inch screen. Apple said the display has seven times more pixels than a high-definition television. It costs ,500.周四,苹果还发布了新版iMac,这款台式电脑拥有27寸的高分辨率屏幕。该公司表示,其显示屏的分辨率是高清电视的7倍。这款电脑售价2500美元。In addition, the company released a new upgrade for its Mac Mini, the smaller desktop computer, with a faster processor. It costs 0.苹果还推出了新款Mac Mini,这款配有更快处理器的小台式电脑售价500美元。 /201410/336839It’s not official, but good journalists at Wired and the Financial Times reported Thursday that Apple’s next generation of consumer devices — iPhones for sure, wearable devices maybe — will come equipped with a NFC (near field communication) chip for making mobile payments.虽然并非官方消息,但《连线》(Wired)和《金融时报》(Financial Times)的资深记者在上周四报道称,苹果(Apple)的下一代电子消费品(确定包括iPhone,可能还包括可穿戴设备)将会配有可用于移动付的NFC(近场通讯)芯片。This is big news, in part because Apple is so late to the NFC party.这是个重大消息,部分原因在于苹果终于迈入了NFC领域,虽说有点姗姗来迟。The rest of the world switched to the technology years ago. Google, Samsung, Nokia, Sony, Blackberry, Visa, MasterCard. It’s the way credit cards talk to banks and retailers in most of the countries of Europe and Asia.早在数年前,全球的其他地区就已经开始采用该技术。参与者包括谷歌(Google)、三星(Samsung)、诺基亚(Nokia)、索尼(Sony)、黑莓(Blackberry)、Visa和万事达(Mastercard)。在欧洲和亚洲的大部分国家,信用卡都采用这种技术与和商家进行交易。But not in the U.S.但在美国不是这样。That’s about to change. Visa and MasterCard have set an October 2015 deadline for U.S. retailers to switch from magnetic strips to embedded chips. If Apple wants in on the game, now’s the time.这一点即将改变。Visa和万事达已经设定截止日期,要求美国的零售商在2015年10月前将磁条卡换成芯片卡。如果苹果想要入局,现在就是个合适的时机。In April, re/Code’s Jason Del Ray reported that Apple was holding job interviews with senior payments industry executives. In July The Information’s Amir Efrati reported that discussions between Apple and the payments industry had heated up in advance of the launch of what the tech press is calling the “iWallet.” The Financial Times reported Thursday that Apple has tapped the Dutch chipmaker NXP to supply the NFC technology.今年4月,科技客re/Code的杰森o德尔o雷报道称,苹果正在对付行业的高管进行招聘面试。今年7月,科技客The Information的阿米尔o埃弗拉提报道称,在发布科技媒体所谓的钱包类产品“iWallet”之前,苹果已经和付业打得火热。上周四,《金融时报》也报道称,苹果已经与荷兰芯片制造商NXP接洽,让后者为其提供NFC技术。Apple can’t change the way most Americans pay for things. As Stratechery’s Ben Thompson observes, it’s hard to disrupt cash and credit cards because they both work pretty well.苹果无法改变大多数美国人的购物方式。正如科技客Stratechery的主本o汤普森所指出的,要阻止人们使用现金与信用卡十分困难,因为它们都很好用。But for Apple’s customers — the “affordable luxury” crowd — the pieces of a new payment platform are falling into place.但对于苹果用户,即“平价奢侈品”的用户而言,新的付平台即将浮出水面。In her report on an NFC-equipped iPhone, Wired’s Christina Bonnington ticked them off:《连线》的克里斯蒂娜o伯宁顿围绕装备NFC芯片的iPhone这个话题撰写了一份报告,列举了苹果的一些有利因素:o More than 800 million credit card numbers on iTuneso 苹果的iTunes记录了超过8亿个信用卡号码o An installed base of 300 million bluetooth-equipped iPhoneso 苹果售出了3亿台配备蓝牙的iPhone,拥有庞大的客户群。o A fast-growing network of Bluetooth-LTE transmitting iBeaconso 苹果用于发射iBeacons信号的蓝牙-长期演进技术(LTE)网络正在迅速发展o A patent on dual-use NFC and bluetooth payment systemo 苹果拥有NFC和蓝牙两用付系统的专利o A patent on storing financial data in a “secure element”o 苹果拥有将财务数据存储于“安全环境”的专利o A patent on a payment system that is location and context aware.o 苹果拥有能够感知地理位置和情境的付系统的专利According to Bonnington, the payment platform will be one of the tentpoles of the Sept. 9 press circus in Cupertino.根据伯宁顿的说法,在9月9日库比蒂诺的苹果发布会上,付平台将会作为最大亮点之一隆重登场。Whether any part of the system works for people who own older iPhones — or for people who can’t afford Apple’s products — remains to be seen.而这一平台能否部分应用于拥有旧款iPhone的用户,或是那些买不起苹果产品的人,我们仍需拭目以待。Correction and clarification:Reader James Wester suggests on Twitter that I’ve just conflated NFC and EMV. I’m sure he’s right. EMV, which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa, is the international standard for credit card er interoperability. According to Datacard Edge修正及澄清:读者詹姆斯o韦斯特在Twitter上称我把NFC与EMV混为一谈了。我相信他是对的。EMV代表Europay卡、万事达卡和Visa卡的首字母简写,是一种让信用卡读卡器互通互用的国际标准。金融网站Datacard Edge表示:“NFC technology isn’t directly associated with financial transactions like the EMV standards. One of NFC’s applications, however, is enabling contactless payments via mobile devices, in addition to its much broader applications for data transfer, keyless door entry and much more.” See EMV vs. NFC Technology: Setting the record straight.“NFC技术与EMV标准等金融交易领域的问题没有直接关系。然而,该技术能够让移动设备的非接触式付成为可能,此外还在数据传送、无钥匙进门和许多其他领域有着更为广泛的应用。”(财富中文网) /201409/326519A dramatic plan to transport humans beyond the solar system within 100 years today received the backing of former President Bill Clinton.美国正在开展一项名为“百年星舰”的宇宙探索计划,希望在百年内能够让人类冲出太阳系,抵达其他遥远的星球。该计划获得了美国前总统比尔#8226;克林顿的持。The 100-year Starship project, which was set up with US military seed funding, plans to develop huge #39;starships#39; to send humans far into space.“百年星舰”计划是用美军的种子基金创立的,将建造大型“星际飞船”,把人类送往太空。It has aly received large amounts of funding, and former President Bill Clinton has even stepped in to serve as the symposium#39;s Honorary Chair.该计划已得到大批资金资助,美国前总统克林顿还作为名誉主席出席了研讨会。In a statement, Clinton said: #39;This important effort helps advance the knowledge and technologies required to explore space, all while generating the necessary tools that enhance our quality of life on earth.#39;克林顿在声明中说:“这项重要研究能帮助我们增进探索太空的知识和技术,还能让我们生产出提高地球上人们生活质量的必需工具。”The astronaut who became the first black woman in space in 1992 has been chosen to skipper the ;100 Year Starship; project.在1992年进入太空的首位黑人女宇航员梅#8226;杰米森被选为“百年星舰”计划的首任机长。;The 100 Year Starship will make the capability of human travel beyond our solar system to another star a reality over the next 100 years,; she said.她说:“在未来一百年内,‘百年星舰’计划会让人类冲出太阳系,飞往其他星球的梦想成真。”;We will embark on a journey across time and space. If my language is dramatic, it is because this project is monumental.;“我们将开启跨越时空的星际之旅。如果我说得太夸张的话,那是因为这项计划本身就很有纪念意义。”;And our team is both invigorated and sobered by the confidence DARPA has in us to make interstellar flight a reality.;“我们的团队充满活力,美国国防高级研究计划署对我们也很有信心,星际飞行的梦想终将成真。” /201209/199400

The joint military exercises routinely spark tension between North Korea, South Korea and the ed States.这次发射正好是发生在韩美每年联合军演开始之后几天。两国每年常规的军演总会引发韩国,美国和朝鲜的紧张局势For example, last year#39;s exercisestriggered weeks of heightened tensions between the nations and North Koreanthreats of nuclear war.比如,去年的军演引发了数周的紧张局势,当时朝鲜威胁核战争The South Korean and U.S. militaries have not beenspecific about where they are conducting their drills.韩国和美国军队没有提供进行军演的地点细节The South Korean Defense Ministry said thatthe North had fired the Scuds in a northeasterly direction and that theyprobably fell into North Korean waters of the East Sea, which is also known asthe Sea of Japan.韩国国防部称朝鲜是朝东北方向发射飞毛腿的,可能是掉入了东海的朝鲜海域,这也被称为日本海It was the first time North Korea had firedScud missiles, which have a range that covers the whole of the KoreanPeninsula, since 2009, South Korea said.韩国称,这是朝鲜自2009年以来首次发射飞毛腿导弹,这种导弹可以覆盖整个朝鲜半岛;We consider it to be threatening anda military provocation,; said South Korean Defense Ministry spokesman KimMing- seok, although he acknowledged the firings may have been a test launch orpart of military drills.韩国国防部发言人KimMing- seok说,“我们认为这是有威胁的军事挑衅”,虽然Kim Ming- seok也承认这次发射可能是一次测试或者是军演的一部分 /201403/277910

Blythe Masters, a pioneer of credit derivatives, one of the products at the heart of the financial crisis, has resigned from JPMorgan Chase after more than two decades at the bank.信用衍生品领域的先驱布莱斯#8226;马斯特斯(Blythe Masters)已从根大通(JPMorgan Chase)辞职。在此之前马斯特斯已在该行工作了27年。信用衍生品是导致金融危机的元凶之一。Ms Masters, 45, was at the vanguard of the development of credit derivatives in the 1990s, credited with the creation of a new risk mitigation tool but after the crisis vilified as an architect of “weapons of mass destruction”.45岁的马斯特斯在上世纪90年代曾是开发信用衍生品的先驱,她因创造了一种新的风险缓解工具而闻名于世。不过在金融危机爆发后,有人指责她设计了一种“大规模杀伤性武器”。Her friends say it was a caricature: Ms Masters developed but did not invent the product and stopped working in the area years before derivatives on mortgage securities stoked the market meltdown in 2008, though she did later act as an industry advocate.马斯特斯的朋友表示这种指责太过简单化:马斯特斯开发了这种金融产品,但该产品的创意却不是她发明的,而且她在2008年按揭券衍生品造成市场崩溃前几年就已停止了在该领域的工作——尽管她后来确实扮演了行业倡导者的角色。The departure of one of the most prominent women on Wall Street was announced in an internal memo from Jamie Dimon, chief executive, and Daniel Pinto, head of the investment bank. It praised her “remarkable” career and said she was taking “some well-deserved time off [to] consider future opportunities”.作为华尔街最耀眼的女性之一,马斯特斯离职的消息是根大通首席执行官杰米#8226;戴蒙(Jamie Dimon)及投行部门主管丹尼尔#8226;平托(Daniel Pinto)在一份内部备忘录中宣布的。Jes Staley, former head of investment banking at JPMorgan and now managing partner at BlueMountain Capital, said: “She is one of the few people that had the courage to defend the derivatives market in the financial crisis and she paid a price for it”.马斯特斯18岁时就以实习生身份加入了根大通,她离开的原因是另一个她大力扶持的项目——根大通大宗商品交易部门——遭遇挫折。马斯特斯在过去6年里创建了这一部门,没想到只能依令将其出售。He added Ms Masters was “one of the most capable bankers that I have worked with”.该部门创造了数十亿美元营收,却也遭到了监管机构的调查。比如,美国联邦能源监管委员会(Federal Energy Regulatory Commission)曾指控该部门涉嫌操纵加州电力市场,去年根大通不得不为此付了4.10亿美元罚金。对违规指控,该行既未承认也未否认。She is leaving the bank she joined as an 18-year-old intern because of the reversal in fortunes of another project whose growth she championed: JPMorgan’s trading in physical commodities, which Ms Masters built over the past six years only to be told to sell it off.知情人士称,由于根大通感觉监管机构将会继续把该部门作为调查目标,该行决定将该部门出售给总部驻瑞士的交易所科瑞(Mercuria)。根据知情人士的说法,马斯特斯决定不去科瑞,不过她并未确定离职后做什么。The business brought in billions of dollars of revenues but also investigations by regulators, including an allegation of market manipulation in the California power market that led to a 0m penalty last year from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. JPMorgan did not admit or deny a violation.马斯特斯将在根大通再待几个月,完成与科瑞的资产交接工作。这一35亿美元的交易预计将在2014年第三季度达成。届时私人控股的科瑞将与维多(Vitol)、托克(Trafigura)及贡沃尔(Gunvor)一同跻身全球一流大宗商品交易商之列。The sense that regulators would keep targeting the business led to JPMorgan’s decision to sell the business to Mercuria, a Swiss-based trading house, according to people familiar with the matter. Ms Masters has decided not to go to Mercuria, according to one person familiar with the matter, but has not made up her mind what to do next.马斯特斯的离职并不令人意外,尽管她过去两年已经谈论过包括资深风险管理岗位在内的其他工作机会。 /201404/284541
