Apple has been hard at work, crafting a unique framework named 'Ajax' for the development of LLM (Large Language Model). This innovative framework is set to elevate the capabilities of AI, enabling it to understand and respond to human language like never before. As a result, the upcoming Chatbot called AppleGPT is anticipated to be smarter, more intuitive, and more human-like.
Moreover, Apple has an ambitious plan to incorporate AppleGPT into its upcoming VR Headset, taking the immersive experience to a whole new level. Imagine having a conversational AI companion in virtual reality, enriching your interactions and making your VR adventures even more dynamic.
Leveraging its vast ecosystem, Apple has access to a staggering 2 billion active devices worldwide. The company intends to use this immense pool of data, including images, messages, emails, and more, for training its AI model. This data-driven approach ensures that AppleGPT will be equipped with a wealth of real-world knowledge, making it incredibly adept at understanding and assisting users.
Not only that, but the beloved virtual assistant Siri is about to receive some major upgrades. With the integration of AppleGPT, Siri will evolve into a much more powerful and sophisticated assistant, bringing unparalleled convenience and efficiency to your daily life.

Technology is excellent as long as it serves the betterment of society and the human race.
In a recent interview, Elon Musk once again issued a warning about the potential dangers posed by artificial intelligence. The billionaire expressed concern that advanced AI could pose a threat by either eradicating or limiting humanity's progress. He emphasized that AI is a "double-edged sword" akin to a mythical genie, with the power to both benefit and harm.
Interestingly, for fans of Terminator and Fast & Furious franchise, the interview might have evoked memories of iconic scenes from Terminator Genisys where Genisys is going to spy and control all digital/IoT assets and The Fate of the Furious car scene. The scene in which a confident woman utters the words "hack them all" causing the cars to move unpredictably, takes vehicular warfare to a whole new level, adding an extra layer of significance to the discussion about AI's potential impact on the world.

When it comes to understanding WWE's business model, I was truly curious, and to my surprise, they generated revenue upwards of 1,215.66 million in the last year. Interestingly, a significant 85% of this revenue came from media rights and licenses. Another 9% was derived from merchandise sales, including video games and apparel. Surprisingly, only about 4% of their earnings came from ticket sales at actual events, where an average person pays about 75 USD to attend. This revelation indicates that the event itself is more of a content production cost, which essentially pays for itself and significantly contributes to the overall revenue.
Looking at the financials, WWE managed to rake in a profit of more than 20% last year, which is certainly impressive. The company's list of investors includes renowned names like Lindsell Train Ltd, The Vanguard Group, Inc., BlackRock Fund Advisors, to name just a few. It is listed on NYSE.
Now, onto the fascinating compensation aspect for the wrestlers themselves. On average, a wrestler earns around 500000.00 USD annually through their contracts, making it a potentially lucrative profession.
In conclusion, WWE's business model is a captivating mix of media, merchandise, and events, each contributing to its financial success in distinct ways. With such diverse revenue streams and the ability to retain top talents like Brock Lesnar, Gunther, Anuka & Tiffany Stratton it's no wonder that WWE continues to be a dominant force in the world of entertainment and sports.
