Wednesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Wednesday’s business headlines.

Costco

Costco is having trouble fulfilling toilet paper orders.

It issued a warning to customers that have purchased the common household item online, saying they may face delays in receiving their orders.

It has recently said customers are stockpiling some items again.

iPhone

Apple is reportedly partnering with UCLA and Biogen to see if health data can be used to detect depression, anxiety and cognitive decline.

The wall Street Journal says the project reportedly involves data from iPhone cameras, keyboards and audio sensors. It also takes into account Apple Watch data related to movement, vital signs and sleep. This includes everything from facial expressions, speaking patterns, waling pace and frequency, typing speed, content and a variety of other health metrics.

The data is then compared to results from a questionnaire about a user’s emotions and even levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, in research participants.

Remote work

A Microsoft study found hybrid work may lead to digital overload.

Based on data Microsoft has collected across its Microsoft 365 and Teams users, hybrid needs closer management attention or remote-working employees could burn out.

Bookings on Virgin Atlantic on Monday evening increased by more than 600% compared to a week earlier, with New York accounting for most of the bookings.
