CNBC Apple plans to expand its growing stable of services this year with “material” new additions, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday during an interview on CNBC.”You will see us announce new services this year. There will more things coming,” Cook told CNBC’s Jim Cramer. “I believe they’ll be material over time. I’m not going to forecast.”Apple has been working on the new services for “multiple years,” Cook said, calling attention to the company’s efforts in health care.”This is an area that I believe, if you zoom out into the future, and you look back, and you ask the question, ‘What was Apple’s greatest contribution to mankind?’ It will be about health,” Cook said.But Apple also likely has more than health in mind for new services this year.

How to play Minecraft for free without downloading

first_imgThe internationally acclaimed videogame, Minecraft, is going to turn 10-years-old on May 17, and players and developers alike are looking back at the progress the game has made.To celebrate the 10-year anniversary, the game which blew up the internet has been made available on web browsers for free. Classic Minecraft is now available to play through the official Minecraft website. This version goes back 10 years to the historic time when the game took its first baby steps.Featuring a wholesome 32 blocks (most of which are dyed wool) to unleash that creative force inside players, the devs urge fans to “play the original and wonder how it ever got so popular”. This web version is set by default to Creative mode because that is the only mode available. This means no Zombies or Creepers or those weird Ender-things. ‘The Perfect Marionette’ has been created on Minecraft by Uchio TokuraimgurThis sure brings back a wave of nostalgia for someone who played and left the game before the bountiful updates came in. It takes players back to a simpler time when there was no complex crafting system, no villagers to trade/trap and no little piggies to poke. Just a tiny, randomly generated map with a single biome and a whole lot of ocean to surround it.There is a “bonus gift” for players who will return to the site tomorrow. A message at the bottom of the landing page contains a message for visitors: “Want to enjoy three spectacular anniversary sales and a free bonus gift? Return on May 10, 2019, to enjoy savings on Minecraft Marketplace content, Minecraft merch and Minecraft itself!” A screenshot from Minecraft shows a typical forest villageMinecraft WikiMinecraft thrives on its (very passionate) community. Several YouTube channels are dedicated solely to videos featuring various mods and fan-made adventures in its multiplayer mode. Microsoft recently teased a Minecraft mobile app featuring AR technology, more of which will be revealed on the day of the anniversary – May 17.

The people in Bengal are politically conscious and they know who is creating trouble and playing divisive politics,” he said.Chatterjee regretted that in some districts, Congress has joined hands with BJP and CPI-M to take control over the Panchayat boards.

Panchayat is a local issue and here local equations play very important roles,” he maintained.Malda is the only district where Trinamool Congress does not have any MLA. Though Trinamool got 211 seats in the 2016 Assembly elections, two ministers from the district – Krishnendu narayan Chowdhury and Sabitri Mitra, could not retain their seats.Trinamool does not have any MP from the district.

But over the years, Trinamool Congress has created a dent in the Congress stronghold and bagged the Malda Zilla Parishad in the 2018 Panchayat election.last_img read more
