We summarize the results of the outgoing week with a selection of the most interesting news that did not make it into the main agenda.
News in one paragraph
Apple Removes Epic Games Account From App Store
But the developer's account for supporting the game engine was saved by Unreal Engine, that is, it did not violate the court order. Now, even if you've previously downloaded Fortnite and other Epic Games projects, you won't be able to download them from the App Store.
Elon Musk gave a presentation on Neuralink
The new version of the interface is a 2.3 × 0.8 cm "pill" that is placed under the scalp at the crown, and not behind the ear, as the first version. 1024 electrodes are used, the device is recharged wirelessly, and the charge is enough for one day of work. Musk said that the device will help in solving neurological problems: memory loss, stroke, paralysis, depression, and will also help monitor the user's health. Now tests are being carried out on pigs, you can watch the full presentation on YouTube:
The artist showed what a swimming suit for people with sun allergies could look like
The inflatable bathing suit is made of latex and resembles a mattress. Yes, it does cover it from the sun, but moving in such a suit (judging by the renders) will be problematic and you need to swim only with accompaniment: an unexpected wave can turn you over, and it is almost impossible to return to the starting position due to blocked hands.
YouTube is testing Picture-in-Picture mode on iPadOS and iOS 14
Some users were among the beta testers of the new feature. Most likely, the feature will only be available to Premium subscribers, otherwise it won't make any sense. We are waiting for the official announcement in the fall, after the release of iOS 14 with support for the "Picture in Picture" mode.

Refurbished MacBook Pro 13 (2020) with 10th Gen Intel processors now available
Refurbished laptops with old processors went on sale a few weeks ago, and now the real novelties have arrived. We subtract about 15% from the price of a new laptop and get the price of a reconditioned one. Not a bad proposal, considering that all faults are repaired and "consumables" are replaced with new ones.
