Sunday, March 26, 2017

Apple has bigger fish frying in the world of intellectual property. But it must be a relief that an IP court in Beijing has handed the smartphone pioneers a win.

The disputes were over the exterior design of the iPhone 6 and 6…

‘People aren’t spending’: stores close doors in ‘oversaturated’ US retail market – The Guardian

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Canal Street was never a high-end retail experience. But, like many streets in New York City and in cities across the US, it is becoming increasingly desolate. Boarded-up stores line the thoroughfare that bisects much of lower Manhattan. Many stores that are still open for business also display signs that read “for lease” or “for rent”. “It’s not Trump,” said one downcast store-owner recently. “It’s not the economy. Something else…

I fixed Apple’s red iPhone with a $14 screen protector – The Verge

Sunday, March 26, 2017

The new red iPhone looks just awesome. Well, the back of it does, anyway. I’ve never been a fan of phones with white bezels. I find them distracting — particularly in sunlight — and have always preferred the “single slab of glass” appearance that a black border gives off. So I was disappointed that Apple went with white on the front of the Product Red iPhone. It wasn’t surprising given…
