Last week, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar traveled to see Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, with the iPhone maker’s long-delayed $ 1 billion data center in Athenry close to the Atlantic Coast, high on the agenda.

Supported by resurgent iPad and Mac sales, the 10-year anniversary iPhone will help push revenue to a record high of $84 billion to $87 billion in the quarter ending in late December, Apple said in a statement.: Apple Inc.'s iPhone X Arrives in Stores© Bloomberg/Bloomberg Apple Inc.'s iPhone X Arrives in Stores (Bloomberg) -- For a tiny village in the West of Ireland, a meeting 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) away at Apple Inc.’s California headquarters confirmed some of its worst fears.

Last week, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar traveled to see Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, with the iPhone maker’s long-delayed $1 billion data center in Athenry close to the Atlantic Coast, high on the agenda. Six weeks after Bloomberg News first reported that the project to build eight data halls was in jeopardy, Cook refused Varadkar guarantees that it would go ahead.

“The local mood is one of frustration and disappointment,” Peter Feeney, a local councilor with Varadkar’s ruling Fine Gael party., said “If Tim Cook had good news, he would have given it to the prime minister -- so if he didn’t give good news, there probably isn’t any right now.”

The encounter between Cook and Varadkar was the latest twist in a saga that stretches back to 2015, when Apple simultaneously laid out plans for vast data centers in Ireland and Denmark. While the Danish facility is completed, the chosen site in the middle of an Athenry forest lies idle, stymied by a combination of objectors and court delays. Advocates of the project say the affair undermines Ireland’s efforts to draw overseas investment.

“This isn’t just about Apple and Athenry now,” Paul Keane, who leads the Athenry for Apple local pressure group, said. “The first hall has taken three years. Who in their right mind would go through that process seven more times?”

Apple watchOS 4.1 delivers phone-free music streaming

  Apple watchOS 4.1 delivers phone-free music streaming For many, the big allure of Apple Watch Series 3 has been the promise of phone-free music streaming on cellular data: you can listen to any song you like while you're out for a run, not just whatever's stored on the watch itself.&nbsp;The upgrade also includes a dedicated Radio app to stream Apple Music's stations, including Beats 1 (free for everyone) and custom/curated stations (for subscribers). As on iOS 11.1, Siri is smarter about finding and discovering music as well.

Apple scouted 19 countries before choosing Athenry, with a population of 4,000, as part of its biggest investment in Western Europe. The center in the Derrydonnell forest had been due to cover 166,000 square meters, the equivalent to about 23 soccer fields on completion, when finished in 2017.

Instead, Apple has yet to break ground in Athenry, stalled by three objectors, contesting its potential environmental impact and economic benefits. They challenged the company’s planning approval in court, already laden down with other cases.

“There’s a process there, and the objectors have just used the process -- you can’t blame them for that,” said Feeney. “The problem is the process. When we say fast-track, we should mean fast-track -- get a decision within a year, not two or three years.”

While Apple’s planning permission survived a legal challenge last month, the company seems to have lost patience. Earlier this year, Cook announced plans to build a second data center in Denmark, and at last week’s meeting, he said Apple agreed to continue to consider Athenry only “in the context of their future business plans,” according to Varadkar.

Apple updates GarageBand with a sound pack store

  Apple updates GarageBand with a sound pack store Apple seems to have some big plans for expanding what GarageBand is capable of: in an update to GarageBand for iOS today, the company is introducing a “Sound Library” that lets you download and install new virtual instruments as well as sound and loop packs.&nbsp;The intention here is to provide a lot more options for people creating music inside of GarageBand. But for now, there’s a lot we don’t know. Apple isn’t committing to updating GarageBand’s Sound Library on any sort of regular basis — though the company does say it can be updated between major app releases, so they may come with more frequency.

Sure Thing?

Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment. Sinead Fitzpatrick, one of the local objectors, didn’t return a call seeking comment. Allan Daly, another objector, did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Locals remain hopeful that the project is on hold rather than dead, with Keane convinced it’s “nearly a sure thing.” Varadkar is scrambling to overhaul planning laws to avoid future delays. Apple holds all the aces now, Feeney said.

“If it’s a game of poker, they have a pretty big chip to play,” Feeney said. “Ultimately, I’m confident the site will be developed. When? We don’t know.”
