It is the latest challenge for Apple in China, its largest market outside of the U.S. Falling iPhone sales in China was a major factor in Apple posting its first quarterly decline in revenue in 13 years in April. China also shut down Apple’s iBooks and iTunes Movies services that month, with regulators telling the company it didn’t have the necessary licenses, according to people familiar with the matter.

WHAT IT MEANS: When Doyle later revealed how Sherlock had actually survived his “death,” critics complained that the explanation was disappointing. Others suggested that the explanation was a lie by Holmes, and that the true story of his survival was more complicated. The explanation Sherlock provides here is nearly identical to a popular online explanation that circulated among fans starting the day after “The Reichenbach Fall” aired. Anderson may symbolize Sherlock viewers who will not find any explanation beyond their own to be satisfactory.

Political cartoons have always served as biting commentary during presidential elections.
Again, the political affiliation is not a news flash, nor is the signees’ beef with the Donald. They don’t like his stance on immigration or his non-politically correct rhetoric, which runs counter to the vaunted diversity and inclusion narrative they so strongly believe in. And that’s where the hypocrisy begins.
Although the patent on the method is held by the University of California, the team plans eventually to release its research and software to the public under an open-source-like license. They are already encouraging interested developers and researchers to contact them through the project website.

It’s all about Twitter cards. Twitter cards are little pieces of metadata that publishers (Instagram, Tumblr, The New York Times) can attach to the things they push out onto the Internet. A Twitter card lets the publisher describe the item — be it a photo, a news story, or a video — and embed it into tweets. This is a system Twitter set up that any publisher can use. But in 2012, Instagram decided to stop supporting Twitter cards, choosing instead to direct everyone who wants to view a user’s photo to the Instagram website. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said the decision was made because the Facebook-owned company wanted better control over how and where users photos are displayed. It makes sense, but it doesn’t hide the fact that Twitter and Instagram are competitors and probably not the best of friends. Whatever Instagram’s motive, as Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said, “That’s their prerogative.”

If the kids are right – and they have been for the past four presidential elections now – then John Kerry will be moving into the White House come January. Kerry picked up 57 percent of the vote to President Bush’s 43 in a mock election held on Nickelodeon’s website that attracted 400,000 children and teens. “Kids aren’t dumb, they’re just younger and shorter,” said Linda Ellerbee, who hosts Nick News. “In fact, last election, a boy came up to me and said, ‘We picked George Bush to win, and he didn’t really win. Al Gore won the popular vote, so we were kinda wrong.’ Quite an observation.”
