|Nintendo announced a Nintendo Direct livestream for September 1, focusing on upcoming 3DS releases. In an e-mail to GamesBeat Nintendo stressed that the NX won’t be discussed during the presentation. |
Now here are some more Top Stories.
|p||Continuing a story we mentioned yesterday the European Commission has ruled that Ireland granted illegal Apple tax breaks and the company owes 13 Billion euros in back taxes.|
The Commission found Apple effectively paid 1% tax on European profits in 2003 and 0.005% in 2014.
Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said “Member states cannot give tax benefits to selected companies - this is illegal under EU state aid rules”.
Ireland and Apple disagreed with verdict and would appeal the decision.
|p||The FCC will not appeal a court decision that allows states to impose laws to restrict growth of municipal broadband.|
The appeal stems from a FCC decision in Feb 2015 to prevent North Carolina and Tennessee from stopping municipal broadband providers from expanding saying FCC had Congressional authority to promote competition in local telecommunications markets.
The Sixth Circuit court of appeals disagreed and sided with the states.
|Twitter now supports the inclusion of pre-roll ads to videos via the Amplify Publisher program.|
Media Studio and Engage apps have received updates for uploading, managing, and publishing media.
Users need to check a box prior to tweeting and a pre-roll ad will be inserted into an uploaded video.
Twitter says there are opt-in controls and a non-exclusivity clause.
The company also promises a revenue share arrangement of a 70/30 split in favor of the creator, a similar model to that offered to publishers.
|p||Finnish telecommunications company Elisa claims it has achieved a record 1.9 Gbps data speed over a 4G test network.|
Fast enough to download a Blu-ray film in 44 secs.
BBC News reports the technology was provided by Huawei.
Analysts are skeptical that this could be repeated over a real-world network where bandwidth of the network is shared and most customers would mostly see modest improvement in speed and reliability.
|p||Google has discontinued the Chromebook Pixel 2.|
VentureBeat reports the Chrome OS laptop is no longer available in the Google Store or Best Buy.
Introduced Feb 2015 the Pixel 2 came in $1299 and $999 versions.
The Pixel C android tablet with optional keyboard is still available.
|p||According to people familiar with the matter Apple is working on software upgrades and improved hardware for the iPad along with refreshed iMac, MacBooks, and a new 5K monitor developed in collaboration with LG.|
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports the updated iPad software which includes improvements to the Apple Pencil will ship next year and the new Macs will arrive sometime in late 2016.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo added the iPad line won’t get updated till next year.

|Pick of the day:|
|Jamie in finally not a sauna Vancouver, Canada writes in:|
I wanted to let people know about a product that is similar to Eero.
The product is called Amplifi by Ubiquiti, and is a consumer version of their Unifi mesh networking solution.
Like Eero, the Amplifi system takes advantage of a base unit that replaces your router, as well as 2 mesh network extenders that blanket your house with reliable wireless internet rather than use extenders like existing solutions.
The Amplifi system comes in 3 tiers, with the base unit providing about 10,000 sq ft of coverage for $199, and the HD system providing 20,000 sq ft for $349.
I know you have the Eero system yourself Tom, but wanted to let people know about another potential option, as this seems to be a very elegant solution to a widespread issue, and it is definitely (in my opinion) an affordable one.

|You mentioned on Monday that Instagram stories just aren't quite there same as Snapchat. For the face filters, Facebook actually owns an app called MSQRD (pronounced masquerade) which also puts filters on your face in the same manner as in Snapchat.|
