Six years ago, President Trump bragged that he sold his Apple stock. If he had held onto it, his money would have more than quadrupled. (AAPL)

Apple reported quarterly earnings that blew away Wall Street expectations on Tuesday. Six years ago to the day, a pre-presidential Donald Trump said on Twitter that he sold his Apple shares, complaining about the fact that the company at the time didn't sell an iPhone with a smaller screen. Assuming Apple's post-earnings stock gains holds through the open of the markets on Wednesday, its price will have gone up 356% from the day of Trump's tweet in 2014.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for...

Current Model For Storing Nuclear Waste May Not Be Sufficiently Safe, Study Says

pgmrdlm quotes a report from ABC News: The current model the U.S. and other countries plan to use to store high-level nuclear waste may not be as safe as previously thought.

Magway's Underground System is Like Hyperloop for Packages

Since moving from New York City down to the rural South, I've learned a lot. In general service is slow, and unlike in New York, people waiting in line will talk to each other. Recently, at the DMV I was in line with a young man who had just earned his CDL (Commercial Driver's License), and an older man who had had his CDL for years, and I got pieces of their stories.For lots of young men (and increasingly women) without much education, earning a CDL is a path to a better life. The hours are lon...

The Indian journalists fighting fake news

Indian journalist Bharat Nayak knows misinformation can have dangerous consequences. He’s witnessed it too often in his home state of Jharkhand, India. According to Bharat, “Indian society has been gravely affected by ‘fake news’, which has  contributed to a rise in hatred and violence, and horrific incidences of lynching.” Concern about misinformation was especially pronounced around last year’s Indian general election—where more than 600 million people voted in the biggest democratic exercise ...

Likebook Mars adding apps

I feel as though this question is probably answered in a thread somewhere, but my search skills here and my Google search are failing me. I would like to add the Kobo app to the Likebook. How do I do this? Also, can Calibre Companion be added directly to the Likebook? If so, how? So I suppose the overall question is: how do I add non-native apps to my new Likebook? Thank you!

Apple blamed China's coronavirus for a 'wider-than-usual' $4 billion range in its revenue forecast. But the weird thing is, a $4 billion range is not actually unusual for Apple. (AAPL)

Apple offered what it called a "wider-than-usual" revenue forecast for its current quarter, attributing it to the uncertainty over the impact of the deadly coronavirus on the company's business. But the spread in its range was actually the same as what it offered in three of its previous five quarters. Apple officials do seem wary of the outbreak, which has been making its way through China, and said they are already seeing some effects from it. The company and some of its retail partners have...

US Colleges Are Trying To Install Location Tracking Apps On Students' Phones

Some U.S. colleges are now apparently requiring students to install a location tracking app to track attendance. Sean Hollister writes for The Verge: The Kansas City Star reported that at the University of Missouri, new students "won't be given a choice" of whether to install the SpotterEDU app, which uses Apple's iBeacons to broadcast a Bluetooth signal that can help the phone figure out whether a student is actually in a room. But a university spokesperson told Campus Reform on Sunday that onl...

Apple CEO Tim Cook says 5G is still in its 'early innings' even though rivals like Samsung are already selling 5G phones (AAPL)

Apple CEO Tim Cook told Wall Street analysts that 5G wireless networking technology is still in the "early innings," and sidestepped any questions on a potential 5G iPhone. His comments came on Apple's earnings call, in the wake of announcing a blockbuster quarter that far surpassed analyst estimates. 5G networks are still scarce even in the United States, but major smartphone makers like Samsung, Huawei, and LG have already launched phones that support the next-generation wireless network.
