It Will Cost $699 to Repair a Broken 12.9-Inch M1 iPad Pro Without AppleCare+

If you damage your new 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro and don't have AppleCare+, Apple will charge $699 to repair the broken device. The fee update was added to Apple's iPad Service and Repair chart earlier today after ‌iPad Pro‌ orders went live.

The extra cost is likely due to the new mini-LED display that's exclusive to the 12.9-inch ‌iPad Pro‌. The...

Karen Kurczynski—Jorn's Distrust of Photography

Kurczynski, The Art and Politics of Asger Jorn ...distrust of the prefabricated image in fact led him [Jorn] at first to dismiss—shortsightedly—the artistic and critical potential of photography. Jorn writes that excessive faith in the progress and objectivity of science leads to the view that photography is the best art form, because it is the most objective and realistic. But there is no objective reality even in science, he argues, since it is always tied to the needs and interests of those...

Extra Crunch roundup: Fintech stays hot, Brex doubles, and startup IRR is up all over

Tech companies in Silicon Valley, the geography, have had an incredible year. But one indicator points to longer-term changes. The internal rate of return (IRR) for companies in other startup hub cities has been even better. A big new analysis by AngelList showed aggregate IRR of 19.4% per year on syndicated deals elsewhere versus 17.5% locally. A separate measure, of total value of paid-in investment, revealed 1.67x returns for other hubs versus 1.60x in the main Silicon Valley and Bay Area tec...

Weekend reading: And the little one said, rollover

What caught my eye this week. F ive years flies by when your country is shooting itself in the foot, the world’s most powerful nation is led by a man-child, and a global pandemic sinks and then super-charges your portfolio. Even so, as the dust settled I was surprised to see that my NS&I Index-linked certificates are up for renewal again. If you have no idea what these are, I don’t blame you. NS&I’s coveted certificates haven’t been available to new investors for almost a decade. Existing hold...

Serious MacOS Vulnerability Patched

Apple just patched a MacOS vulnerability that bypassed malware checks. The flaw is akin to a front entrance that’s barred and bolted effectively, but with a cat door at the bottom that you can easily toss a bomb through. Apple mistakenly assumed that applications will always have certain specific attributes. Owens discovered that if he made an application that was really just a script—code that tells another program what do rather than doing it itself—and didn’t include a standard application me...

How UK-based Lendable is powering fintechs across emerging markets

What moves the needle for digital lenders is serving loans to their respective customers. But where does this money come from? The pool is usually equity or debt. While some lenders use the former, it can be seen as folly because, over time, the founders tend to lose ownership of their businesses after giving out too much equity to raise capital for loans. Hence the reason why most lending companies secure debt facilities.  TechCrunch has recently reported on two prominent digital lenders (al...
