Those patiently waiting for next month's alleged launch of Apple's desktop beast, the iMac Pro, can satiate themselves with a few all-but-officially confirmed rumors that broke over the weekend.

If the code is anything to go by, it looks like the iMac Pro will feature an A10 Fusion chip with 512 MB of RAM.

Earth could face more heavy earthquakes in the year 2018
According to the new research, major earthquakes on Earth happen around five years after a maximum deceleration event occurs. The Earth's rotation is known to go through regular decades-long periods in which it slows down and speeds up.

Digging into the BridgeOS 2.0 code, reverse engineering expert Jonathan Levin has found a mention of Apple's A10 coprocessor - which was debuted on the iPhone 7 past year. I'm sure there will be absolutely no way to disable the always-on A10 Fusion processor, because we're talking about Apple here.

This should mean that the new iMac Pro will come with the same Hey Siri feature as Apple's iPhones and iPads. And the iMac Pro may be a good testbed for this functionality.

German election: Preliminary coalition talks collapse after FDP walks out
The DIHK Chambers of Industry and Commerce said a prolonged period of uncertainty would be bad for the economy. Options include new elections or a minority government, unprecedented in the country's post-war history.

While we don't yet have an exact release date for the iMac Pro, Apple has said it will be out by the end of the year. Troughton-Smith notes that unlike the case of the MacBook Pro that uses the T1 chip only when its Touch Bar is in use, the new iMac Pro would always be running the A10 to enable the hands-free experience. You could get a more refined experience if and when the A10 finds its way to mainstream Macs - particularly MacBooks, where the chip could let Siri and Power Nap run without significantly affecting your battery life. "One could say that the x86 is the coprocessor, and the A10 is in control.".
