The iPhone X has been spotted again on the Apple Store at a discounted price. The 2019 iPhones are rumored to have three camera lenses on their backs, but what they could be used for? Meanwhile, the FaceTime bug refuses to go away. Here's a roundup of the top iPhone and Apple headlines from this week's episode of Apple Core.The iPhone X makes a sneaky comebackAfter disappearing from the Apple Store without a trace in September 2018, Apple has begun selling its 10th anniversary iPhone X online again. The caveat: you'll have to search for a refurbished model while supplies lasts. Apple stopped selling the iPhone X shortly after releasing last year's iPhone lineup: the iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR, presumably to prevent the X from cannibalizing sales of its new phones. The refurbished iPhone Xs were first spotted this week by MacRumors and appear to be selling out fast.And though they are discounted from the original $999 price, the discounts aren't that great when you compare them to … [Read more...] about The iPhone X is back on sale, but for how long?
When President Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions earlier this month, people started looking more closely at the man who was appointed to take his place, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker. And the closer you look, the worse it looks, especially as new questions are raised over roughly $1.2 million that Whitaker has received since 2014 from a dark money group. Whitaker was on the advisory board of an extremely shady patent company before becoming the acting Attorney General. But even if we ignore World Patent Marketing for a moment, there’s another organization that paid Whitaker a lot of money and is drawing new scrutiny now that Whitaker has an enormous amount of power. According to newly released financial disclosure forms, Whitaker received $1.2 million from a conservative political advocacy organization called Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT). And we have no idea who’s funding that group because it’s not required by law to … [Read more...] about Who Helped Give $1.2 Million to President Trump’s New Acting Attorney General?
In spite of some public bellyaching over perceived fairness on behalf of several high-profile, wealthy technology company heads prior to election day, the voters of San Francisco have cast their ballots in favor of Proposition C. Under the measure, businesses with over $50 million in gross receipts will be taxed 0.175 to 0.69 percent in order to fund housing and homelessness services. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, who poured millions of private and corporate money into bolstering the measure and was among its most vocal proponents, shared a statement on Twitter following the proposition’s win. Zynga’s chairman and co-founder Mark Pincus, who previously tweeted that the measure was the “is the dumbest, least thought out prop ever” and advised his followers to vote against it, engaged in a war of words with Benioff over Proposition C on the social platform just days ago. But he appeared to change his tune this week following the proposition’s victory. On … [Read more...] about Sorry Tech Billionaires, San Francisco Just Voted for a Tax to Fight the Homelessness Crisis
Sprint is about to pay heavily for its tax sins. The New York attorney general’s office is coming down hard on the mobile carrier, who it claims engaged in deceitful tax behavior. The company, it alleged, “knowingly failed to collect and remit” state and local taxes on calling plans for almost a decade to the tune of more than $100 million. Now, the company has agreed to pay a staggering $330 million to the state as part of a settlement, according to New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood’s office. “Sprint knew exactly how New York sales tax law applied to its plans—yet for years the company flagrantly broke the law, cheating the state and its localities out of tax dollars that should have been invested in our communities,” Underwood said in a statement. “Now, Sprint will pay the price with this record-setting settlement.” The company wittingly violated the state’s laws, officials said, beginning in 2005 and through 2014 … [Read more...] about Sprint to Cough Up a Whopping $330 Million Following Investigation Over NY Taxes
