Hewlett Packard Enterprise moving headquarters from Silicon Valley

One of the Bay Area’s oldest tech companies is moving its headquarters out of Silicon Valley.

Houston will be home to the new headquarters of Hewlett Packard Enterprise. A company press release said Houston is an attractive market to recruit and retain future diverse talent and is where the company is currently constructing a state-of-the-art campus.

The company will keep the current campus in San Jose and will consolidate a number of sites in the Bay Area to this location.

“The global pandemic has forced businesses to rethink everything from remote work and collaboration to business continuity and data insight,” President and CEO Antonio Neri said in the company’s fourth-quarter earnings release.


No layoffs are associated with this move. There are almost 5,992 employees in the Bay Area, according to LinkedIn.

As more companies shift to permanent remote work, Bay Area companies are reconsidering large office footprints. In August, Pinterest

Early Docker build demonstrates incoming Apple Silicon support

The virtualization software Docker is getting closer to being usable by developers on an Apple Silicon Mac, with an early version of the tool confirmed as being able to run on the new chip architecture.

Mentioned in Apple’s launch of its Apple Silicon Mac lineup, Docker has yet to fully make the transition from being usable on Intel Macs to versions using M1. In a tweet, it seems the work to make the transition is making progress.

Docker VP of engineering Jean-Laurent Morlhorn shared a post on Twitter by developer Dave Scott, showing a version of Docker that is working on an M1 Mac. In commenting on the screenshot, Morlhorn adds it is a “super early version of Docker Desktop running on Apple Silicon.”

While the post is a good sign for users of the tool, it doesn’t mean it will be released imminently with Apple Silicon

Reliable Leaker Suggests Redesigned MacBooks in 2021 Will Include Both Apple Silicon and Intel Models

Reliable leaker known as “L0vetodream” has today suggested on Twitter that redesigned MacBooks coming in the second half of 2021 will include models with both Apple Silicon chips and Intel processors.

13 16 inch macbook pro air trio

The brief Tweet came in response to a MacRumors article from earlier today, which outlined a report from Ming-Chi Kuo claiming that Apple plans to release redesigned MacBook models with ‌Apple Silicon‌ in the second half of 2021.

L0vetodream simply says that the MacBook redesigns expected in the second half of 2021 will not be only for ‌Apple Silicon‌ models, implying that the redesigns will also come to new Intel-based MacBooks.

Apple just released its first ‌Apple Silicon‌ Macs, which include the MacBook Air and lower-end configurations of the 13-inch ‌MacBook Air‌ and Mac mini. While the new MacBook Pro and ‌Mac mini‌ still have a few shortcomings relative to their more expensive Intel counterparts, they are demonstrating better

The Next Silicon Valley Will Have No ZIP Code

As of May 2020, Silicon Valley was home to 2,000 tech companies — the greatest concentration anywhere in the world. Between 2011 and 2019, Silicon Valley startups received more than $113 billion of funding. Add in an incredible concentration of talent generating and building on innovative ideas plus top tech corporations hungry to gobble up new companies, and it’s been an environment impossible to emulate anywhere else in the world.

But times are changing, and Silicon Valley’s reign as an epicenter of technology innovation is coming to an end. In 2019, startups in the Bay Area saw a decrease in new funding, from $63.6 billion to $45.9 billion, while funding deals outside of Silicon Valley have been slowly increasing in recent years.

Pam Springer, an Ohio-based serial entrepreneur, startup advisor and investor, says there are clear signs that the startup ecosystem is becoming more geographically diverse.

‘Silicon Mountain’ Advocates For More Tech Re-Use

When Apple released the iPhone 12 earlier this year, much of the ensuing outrage centered around the charger. In an attempt to shift to a more sustainable model of minimal packaging, the Cupertino computing giant announced it would not be including a power brick with every handset, as it had customarily done in the past. Predictably, some consumers were annoyed at the thought of having to buy an extra $19 USB-C charger adaptor on top of the already pricey device.

While the new charger policy made for clicky headlines, and momentarily focused public attention on just how many glossy plastic cubes we all have floating around our homes, it does little to address the broader problem of e-waste. Every time a new iPhone hits the market, millions rush to buy the latest, shiniest version. Inevitably, the devices they already have join billions of pounds of glass, heavy metals, and other

Restoring Apple Silicon M1 Macs Leading to macOS Installation Errors

Several customers who purchased a new Mac with an M1 Apple Silicon app have discovered an issue when attempting to restore the machine, which leads to it becoming non-functional and stuck on error screen that says “An error occurred preparing the update. Failed to personalize the software update.”


There are at least three threads on the MacRumors forums outlining the issue and warning against restoring one of the new machines. MacRumors reader RyanFlynn describes the problem:

I just received my M1 MacBook Pro and Macbook Air. Because I don’t need any of the included software, it is always my procedure to restore the operating system without things like garage band and iMovie.

during the install process, an error occurs relating to “customizing the system update”

after a couple hours on the phone with Apple care, they told me that 75 other people have called in with this issue, and They

MacBook Air M1 hands-on: Big changes from Apple silicon and Big Sur

img-1759

Dan Ackerman/CNET

Going hands-on with the new M1-powered Apple MacBook Air feels very different from using any previous MacBook Air, even the early-2020 Intel version I tested alongside it. But that mostly comes from the new MacOS Big Sur experience, more than the hardware changes inside. Big Sur is a huge change for the Mac, with new visual flair, new controls and new ways of interfacing with your Mac. Once you account for the big OS update, the day-to-day experience will be familiar to anyone who has used a recent MacBook Air. That, by itself, is a big point in favor of the theory that switching Macs, especially the MacBook Air, from Intel CPUs to the new Apple-designed M1 system-on-chip will be overall a smooth transition.

Using the new M1-powered Apple MacBook Air feels very different from using any previous MacBook Air, even the early-2020 Intel version I tested alongside it. But that difference, at least initially, largely comes from the new MacOS Big Sur experience, more than the hardware changes inside. Big Sur is a huge change for the Mac, with new visual flair, new controls and new ways of interfacing with your Mac. 

But once you account for the big OS update, the day-to-day experience will be familiar to anyone who has used a recent MacBook Air.
