Friday Highlights: Spring 2018 might see a number of new products, including software, from Apple; Dan Moren feels HomePod is starting out like the Apple Watch, "whereas the chief criticism of the latter upon its release was that it tried to do too much, the HomePod follows more of a tried-and-true Apple pattern: it starts small"; Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Google, likely to see extra tax on revenues in UK; Safari to be friendlier to social media as changes made to "cookie killer"; Glenn Fleishman reiterates warning to *not* convert "Time Machine volume from HFS+ to APFS"; numerous accidental calls to 911 made from California Apple repair center; Land Rover introducing $800 Android smartphone with super rugged features, and more; AirPower wireless charging pad said to be available for purchase sometime in March.

When I'm *working* on a document, I usually want to get back to where I was the next time I open it.
