March 21, 2007: Apple launches the Apple TV, a set-top box for bringing iTunes media to the living room. Unfortunately, the device lacks key features that could have made it a killer entertainment system — making this something of a missed opportunity for Apple.
Artist Robert Sikoryak has a knack for introducing skittish readers to dense classic literature with comic book adaptions. Try Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment with a 1950s-era Batman with blood on his ax.

Apple is set to move into its new spaceship campus next month, but based on the latest drone video of the construction site, there’s still a lot of work left to do.
The grounds of Apple Park are still littered with construction crews working on everything from landscaping to solar panels. Tim’s big beautiful pile of dirt has been spread throughout the site and some new trees are finally being planted.
Apple CEO Tim Cook appears to be open to a friendlier relationship with Google than Steve Jobs ever was.
