Apple Banned From China As A Result Of Battle With Qualcomm
https://www.forbes.com/sites/tiriasrese ... 42697ca137
.....
The Fuzhou court ruled that Apple infringed two of Qualcomm’s patents and granted a requested injunction against the sale of the Apple products that are currently in the market ranging from the iPhone 6S to the iPhone X.
This means that Apple is essentially banned from selling all infringing iPhones in China.
Apple currently sells more iPhones in the U.S. than in China, but China is one of the largest potential markets for Apple and iPhones still account for around 11%of all phones sold in China or roughly 24.5 million units through Q3 of 2018 according to IDC.

20 Bad Vintage Christmas Ads
Vintage ads are often terrible, but these holiday ads take terrible to a new low.
Whether it's Santa as a sex object or a cigarette carton for a sleigh, these ads are festive, fun, and totally inappropriate.

in Apple store ...
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... aged-drama

Code: Select all

.....
It might be expected that Apple store employees are, as their name implies, tech gurus with incredible intellects.
But their true role has always been to use emotional guile to sell products.
The Genius Training Student Workbook is the vaguely comical title of the manual from which Apple store employees learn their art.
Prospective geniuses are taught to use empathetic communication to control customer experience and defuse tension,
  aiming to make them happy and relax their purse strings.
  
One of the techniques the book teaches is the “three Fs”: feel, felt, found.
Here’s an example from the book, meant to be role-played by trainees:
Customer: This Mac is just too expensive.
Genius : I can see how you’d feel this way. 
         I felt the price was a little high, but I found it’s a real value because of all the built-in software and capabilities.
When customers run into trouble with their products, geniuses are encouraged to sympathize, but only by apologizing that customers feel bad, 
 lest they implicate Apple’s products as the source of the trouble. 
In this gas-lit performance of a “problem free” brand philosophy, many words are actually verboten for staff.

Do not use words like crash, hang, bug, or problem, employees are told.
Instead say does not respond, stops responding, condition, issue, or situation. 
Avoid saying incompatible; instead use does not work with.

Staff have reported the absurdist dialogues that can result, like when they are not allowed to tell customers 
 that they cannot help even in the most hopeless cases, leading customers into circular conversations with 
 employees able neither to help nor to refuse to do so.
 
Apple’s “geniuses” perform on a stage that’s as carefully managed as they are. Jobs and Johnson wanted to 
  control every aspect of the Apple stores, down to the specific color of the bathroom signs.
Almost every detail is trademarked, from stairs to display tables to storage racks. 
Even the supposedly “intuitive” layout, so obvious that it can be understood by all,
  is considered unique enough to warrant a suite of intellectual property protections.

Redmond (dpo) - Windows is finally going green:
there is now an update available for Microsoft’s Windows 10 which will introduce waste separation to domestic computers for the first time.
Environmentalists have long criticised the fact that all computer files are disposed of in the same recycle bin regardless of format.
In the updated version,five differently coloured containers are visible on the desktop instead of that one notorious recycle bin.
There is one each for photographs, videos, sound files, text files and general waste.
...
Now when you empty the recycle bin, the data in it will not simply be deleted, but recycled –
the colour from old photographs, for example, can be used to fill up the colour bucket in Microsoft Paint, thus saving resources.
However, some especially toxic files cannot be recycled.
These include computer viruses, GILF porn videos and Justin Bieber music.
Users can no longer dispose of these via a click on the desktop.
Instead, they must be saved to a USB stick and sent on by post to Microsoft’s hazardous waste management centre.
