Apple's new credit card gets compared to Billy McFarland's credit card scam

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:55

Apple's new credit card gets compared to Billy McFarland's credit card scamSomeone didn't watch the Fyre Festival documentaries. Apple announced its groundbreaking new pay feature during its event on Monday: A titanium credit card with no card number, no signature, no CVV, and no expiration date. All of the vital information would be stored in the Wallet app, so it's less of a credit card and more of a physical way to pay through the app. As wonderful as it seems, Twitter users couldn't help but compare it to Magnises, the credit card/social club scam that Fyre Fest grifter Billy McFarland came up with before the disastrous music festival. Like Apple Card, Magnises' appeal was that the card was metal, not just plastic. Apple's new card will apparently be made of titanium.And of course, the whole cool factor. > Tim Cook after announcing Titanium Apple Card AppleEvent pic.twitter.com/QT1fsySyQA> > -- branchclarke (@branchclarke) March 25, 2019SEE ALSO: What you should know about Billy McFarland's pre-Fyre Fest scam Magnises> Incredible: Apple brought back the Magnises card> > -- nick lucchesi (@nicklucchesi) March 25, 2019> Apple Card is the new Magnises. pic.twitter.com/rYqkONHqnA> > -- William Needham Finley IV (@WNFIV) March 25, 2019> [throws Magnises card in the TRASH]> > -- Ryan Perry (@rynprry) March 25, 2019> Apple just dropped the new magnises titanium card AppleEvent pic.twitter.com/0U70GkUb3a> > -- B E A N Z | Currently stuck in Raccoon City (@PhotosByBeanz) March 25, 2019> Someone at Apple must have watched the Fyre Festival documentary and was like, "THAT.

Trump jubilant, vengeful as Russia probe ends in win

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:54

Trump jubilant, vengeful as Russia probe ends in winUS President Donald Trump was jubilant Monday -- but also looking for revenge -- after the Russia collusion report cleared him in a huge boost for his reelection chances next year. Trump could afford to be magnanimous in victory after spending two years trying to discredit special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Trump also supported publication of the Mueller report, rather than just the short summary released late Sunday with a declaration that no evidence emerged to support allegations of collusion between the president's 2016 election campaign and Russia.

The 5 most important announcements from Apple’s big event

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:47

The 5 most important announcements from Apple’s big eventFor Apple fans, today's big "It's Show Time" event wasn't exactly the most hotly anticipated Apple press conference in recent history. In fact, it might not even crack the top 10. But for Apple, today's event carries a tremendous amount of weight. For the past decade, Apple has made the lion's share of its money selling hardware products. Specifically, the iPhone line and its sky-high profit margins are the reason Apple is the most profitable consumer electronics company in history. But as we've seen in recent years, iPhone growth simply isn't sustainable — big smartphone markets are already saturated and people are keeping their phones longer than ever because it's so expensive to upgrade these days. That's a big part of the reason that Apple is turning to services as the company explores new ways to foster growth. Today we got our first look at the new services Apple hopes will carry the company's media efforts into the future. We can't say anything Apple announced during Monday's press conference came as much of a surprise considering all of the leaks and reports from the past few weeks. That said, we finally know all of the particulars regarding Apple's upcoming new streaming entertainment and news services, and there's plenty to unpack. In this post, however, we'll unpack it all as we cover the five most important announcements from the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino, California on Monday. Apple News+Apple on Monday announced a huge revamp to the Apple News product. What was once merely a news aggregator app is now evolving into a one-stop shop for all sorts of journalism called Apple News+. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ First, Apple is adding magazines and digital subscriptions to Apple News. Time, Vogue, People, National Geographic, Popular Science, Billboard, The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, Fortune, and New York Magazine are just some of the popular magazines that will be featured in the new Apple News+ hub. New issues of subscribed magazines and newspapers are downloaded automatically in the background, and more than 300 magazines will be included in the service at launch, as well as newspapers like The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times. Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month, which includes unlimited content sources and family sharing. The new service is available beginning immediately. Apple CardApple's second big announcement during today's show is a brand new service called Apple Card, which is backed by Goldman Sachs and Mastercard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZiE9NtRfs The company says it has completely rethought the credit card with its new Apple Card product. It's a credit card, but you can sign up in the Wallet app on your iPhone and get your card virtually right away. Balance information and payment details are all accessible in the Wallet app, and Apple even provides Apple Card customer support through the Messages app. Apple Card uses machine learning and Apple Maps to translate conventional vendor transaction details to actual business names that are more recognizable. There are a number of tools included as well that are aimed at helping users track their spending. As for rewards, Apple has introduced a new "Daily Cash" feature that gives users cash back on a daily basis. Money is added to an Apple Cash card in the wallet app automatically, and the cash back rate is 2% for all purchases except for purchases made from Apple, which earn 3% cash back. Apple Card in the Wallet app offers several tools designed to reduce the amount of interest you pay, such as a real cost calculator and multiple payments per month. There are also no fees with the Apple Card, including no late fees and no over limit fees. Each Apple Card customer will also get a physical titanium card for locations where Apple Pay isn't accepted. Purchases made with the physical card only get 1% cash back. The Apple Card will launch in the US sometime this summer. Apple ArcadeRumors suggested Apple would be announcing a new gaming service during its event on Monday, and indeed it did. The new service is called Apple Arcade, and it's a new way to deliver video games to users. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95FuVib8mcY Apple Arcade offers financial backing to studios for the development of games that will be exclusive to Apple Arcade, and they'll be playable on mobile devices, computers, and on Apple TV. Apple Arcade subscriptions offer unlimited access to all games in the library, and it will launch with more than 100 titles available from day one. A new Arcade tab in the App Store will provide access to Apple Arcade, and all games will work on iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers, as well as on the Apple TV. No games will be permitted to display any ads, and no games will be allowed to include in-app purchases. Apple Arcade will launch in more than 150 countries this fall, and pricing for the subscription hasn't yet been announced. Apple TV ChannelsThe biggest news from today's press conference is a new a la carte TV subscription service that lets you pay only for the channels you want to watch. Apple TV Channels will live inside the Apple TV app, and users only pay for the channels to which they would like to subscribe. All content is also available on demand, of course, and the redesigned Apple TV app will also be home to streaming TV services from cable providers and similar offerings like PlayStation Vue. The redesigned Apple TV app will also provide live scores from sporting events, and it'll be a portal for movies and TV shows you purchase in iTunes. A unified "Up Next" section in the app shows new episodes of all your favorite TV shows as they become available, to ensure you never miss a show. Hulu and Prime Video content is also available through the new Apple TV app. It's designed as a one-stop shop for all of the streaming entertainment you watch. The new Apple TV app will available on Apple TV boxes, iPad, and iPhone beginning in May, and it'll come as part of an iOS update. It'll also be made available on macOS beginning this fall, and there will be a version made available for smart TVs (including Samsung, Sony, and Vizio), Roku devices, and Fire TV devices. Apple TV+In addition to the new Apple TV Channels product, Apple finally announced its original programming initiative. Dubbed Apple TV+, Apple is dumping some serious cash into original shows and movies created by and starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Brie Larson, Bill Murray, Steven Spielberg, J. J. Abrams, Octavia Spencer, Steve Carell, M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Aniston, Ron Howard, and Reese Witherspoon are just some of the big names involved with projects that are currently in production. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrdbT4hpwBk Steven Spielberg will be rebooting Amazing Stories for Apple TV+, an anthology series from the mid 1980s. Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon will star in The Morning Show, a show that analyzes the inner workings of a fictitious morning new show. Jason Momoa will star in a new show called See, a show about a world where only a few million survivors lived through a cataclysmic event, and they were all blind. Kumail Nanjiani is making a series called Little America, a collection of immigrant stories in the United States based on true events. J. J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles are joining to create a series called Romantic Voice, a show about a young woman trying to  make it in the New York music scene. There's also a new preschool show about using coding (yes, coding!) to solve problems. It's called Helpsters and it features characters from Sesame Street. There's also one more personality you may have heard of who's on board to create two documentaries and a new Book Club interview series for Apple TV+: Oprah. Apple TV+ will be available in the new Apple TV app beginning this fall. It will be an ad-free subscription service, but pricing hasn't yet been announced.

Republicans block attempt to release entire Mueller report - despite Trump claiming it ‘totally exonerates’ him

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:41

Republicans block attempt to release entire Mueller report - despite Trump claiming it ‘totally exonerates’ himRepublicans have blocked an attempt by Democrats to force the release of Robert Mueller’s Russia report in its entirety – despite Donald Trump claiming it was “a complete and total exoneration” of him. A day after attorney general William Barr released to Congress the main conclusions of the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 and possible collusion with the Trump campaign, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell stopped a Democratic effort to ensure all of it was made public. Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted 420-0 in favour of making the report public, with no Republican opposition.

Trump Officially Recognizes Golan Heights as Israeli Territory

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 12:34

Trump Officially Recognizes Golan Heights as Israeli TerritoryPresident Trump on Monday signed an order recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, abruptly shifting long-standing U.S. policy on the matter."We're celebrating the Golan Heights. It's something that I've been hearing about for many years," Trump said during remarks to reporters at the White House alongside Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "This should have been done, I would say, numerous presidents ago, but for some reason they didn't do it, and I'm very honored to have done it."Israel has held the Golan for 52 years since capturing it from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War. About 20,000 Israelis and 20,000 Syrians live in the territory, whose 1981 annexation by Israel was not recognized internationally. The disputed land remains a fraught issue in Middle East politics; Syria attacked Trump's decision as "a blatant attack on its sovereignty" and threatened to recapture the region "through all available means."Trump's move is a political boon for Netanyahu, coming two weeks before hotly contested national elections on April 9. The prime minister, damaged by corruption charges and facing a stiff challenge from the centrist former IDF general Benny Gantz, has for months has called on the U.S. to recognize the territory as part of Israel."Your proclamation comes at a time when Golan is more important than ever for our security," the prime minister said. "Israel won the Golan Heights in a just war of self-defense and the Jewish people's roots in the Golan go back thousands of years."Trump similarly recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in 2017, calling it “a long overdue step to advance the peace process.”

Parkland students mourn the deaths of two more after apparent suicides

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:48

Parkland students mourn the deaths of two more after apparent suicidesPolice investigate death of another teen who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school and was said to have had PTSDA memorial for the victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, on 25 February 2018. Photograph: David Santiago/APStudents of a Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people last year are mourning the deaths of what they consider two more victims of the tragedy – teenagers who apparently died in suicides one week apart.Police were on Monday investigating the weekend death of a 17-year-old boy who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) high school in Parkland. Friday saw the funeral of former student Sydney Aiello, 19, whose family said she was suffering from “survivor’s guilt” and had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.Community and school leaders were stepping up the provision of mental health and suicide-prevention services, including the opening on Monday of a wellness and counselling center in Parkland specifically designed for students and their families.Dozens of parents, teachers, school leaders, state and local politicians, law enforcement and mental health counsellors attended an emergency meeting in Parkland on Sunday, to discuss the crisis and ways to tackle lingering grief and trauma.“We have students and staff that are still at risk,” said Ryan Petty, who founded the Walkup Foundation, a school safety and advocacy group, after his 14-year-old daughter Alaina was among those murdered on 14 February 2018.“We have to recognise after an event like this there is trauma, anxiety and depression. We have to educate parents and teachers to recognise the signs,” he told the meeting. “Parents cannot be afraid to ask their kids the tough questions.”By lunchtime on Monday, police had not released the identity of the 17-year-old male student.“I can’t tell you if it’s related to the Parkland shooting,” Tyler Reik, an officer with Coral Springs police, said on Sunday. “We don’t know the reasoning behind it. It hasn’t even been confirmed as a suicide.”Robert Runcie, superintendent of the Broward county school district, said he spent Sunday with the family of the 10th-grade student, “a great young man”. Earlier in the week he spoke with the family of Aiello, who graduated from MSD last year and was attending college in nearby Boca Raton.Aiello, whose close friend Meadow Pollack was killed in the Parkland shooting, died on 17 March from a self-inflicted gunshot, according to the medical examiner’s office.In a call to families of Broward’s 271,000 students on Monday, the first day of spring break, Runcie laid out the support available “in the wake of two suicides that have devastated our community”.He pointed to a resiliency centre in Parkland staffed by mental health counsellors and free activities for students at the Coral Springs arts center. Additionally, the opening of Eagle’s Haven, a new wellness centre for MSD students and families offering crisis support, advocacy and a range of activities, was brought forward from next month.“There is hope, there is help and there is healing,” Runcie said.Jared Moskowitz, Florida’s director of emergency management operations and a former state representative for Parkland, called on politicians to send resources to the district.“Now is the time for the Florida legislature to help,” he said in a tweet. “Mental health is a bipartisan issue. While we are in session now is the time.”Activist David Hogg, a former MSD student who co-founded the March For Our Lives movement calling for gun law reform, echoed Moskowitz’s call, tweeting his concern at what he saw as a lack of support for survivors’ mental health.“How many more kids have to be taken from us as a result of suicide for the government/school district to do anything? RIP 17+2” he wrote.In a later tweet he attacked Donald Trump for spending money on golf trips but failing to offer funding for mental health services. The president’s federal commission on school safety, which issued its report in December, acknowledged “a lack of mental health professionals in schools” but left any rectification and financial commitment to states and school districts.If Trump “can spend $91,000,000 on golf trips to Mar-a-Lago while our kids suffer from trauma he can fund mental health”, Hogg wrote. “If mental health is your solution PLEASE make that a priority. Please allocate that money.”Sunday’s gathering in Parkland was “the first of many meetings with all city, county and mental health experts in order to make sure our students, teachers and parents receive the education they need to prevent the next suicide”, according to Max Schachter, whose son Alex was killed at MSD.The meeting, with the support of the Broward school district, agreed to adopt the renowned Columbia protocol as a strategy for suicide prevention. The protocol provides three to six plain-language questions for friends and family members to ask, in order to evaluate a person’s risk. * In the UK, Samaritans can be contacted on 116 123 or email jo@samaritans.org. In the US, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. In Australia, the crisis support service Lifeline is 13 11 14. Other international suicide helplines can be found at www.befrienders.org

Apple rethinks the credit card and unveils the Apple Card

Yahoo News - Mon, 03/25/2019 - 11:29

Apple rethinks the credit card and unveils the Apple CardAs far as Apple events go, today's "Show Time" event is particularly intriguing, if not downright exciting. While events like WWDC are predictable in the sense that we know we're going to see updates to iOS and watchOS, Apple today is poised to announce a number of new initiatives in markets it historically has no experience in, including news subscriptions and TV production. While Apple can undoubtedly make killer hardware and best-in-class software, the notion of Apple rolling out its own TV shows, for example, is something that would have seemed like a joke even a few years ago. Suffice it to say, today's Apple event marks an interesting turning point for the company. The keynote from today's event is already underway and Tim Cook,  having already introduced Apple News Plus, just a few moments ago starting talking about Apple Pay. Notably, Cook said that there were 10 billion transactions in 2019 alone and that Apple Pay support at transit terminals will be coming soon. All of that was a prelude, though, to Tim Cook introducing a brand new credit card dubbed Apple Card. The card is made out of titanium with an accompanying app that resides inside the Wallet app. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZiE9NtRfs As for what Apple Card brings to the table, users can sign up for it right on their iPhone and can start using it in just a few minutes. The card presents a rather straight forward interface that allows users to keep track of how much they owe how much they've spent, and more. Apple notes: > Customers can sign up for Apple Card in the Wallet app on their iPhone in minutes and start using it with Apple Pay right away in stores, in apps or online worldwide. Apple Card gives customers easy-to-understand, real-time views of their latest transactions and balance right in Wallet, and Apple Card support is available 24/7 by simply sending a text from Messages.Every time you use the Apple Card, you'll get 2% cash back immediately back into your account. It will all be funneled into a section on the app called Daily Cash. Further, if you buy an Apple product, you get 3% cash back. > Customers will receive a percentage of every Apple Card purchase amount back as Daily Cash. Unlike other cash back rewards, Daily Cash is added to customers’ Apple Cash card each day and can be used right away for purchases using Apple Pay, to put toward their Apple Card balance or send to friends and family in Messages. Every time customers use Apple Card with Apple Pay, they will receive 2 percent Daily Cash. Customers will also get 3 percent Daily Cash on all purchases made directly with Apple, including at Apple Stores, on the App Store and for Apple services.With Apple Card, Apple is also aiming to be more transparent about the fees and high interest rates associated with other cards. In fact, Apple is doing away with late fees, annual fees, international fees, and over limit fees altogether. Apple boasts that it will charge users a uniquely low-interest rate and that users won't incur a penalty when they miss a payment. Apple notes that its goal is to provide an interest rate that is "among the lowest in the industry." Apple Card will also present users with a number of payment options designed to help users pay less interest. > As a way to pay less interest, Apple Card will also suggest paying a bit more every month and offers the flexibility to schedule more frequent payments."Apple Card is designed with privacy in mind," Apple's Jennifer Bailey said. With that said, Apple will never know what you bought or where you bought it. Apple, as previously rumored, will be partnering with Goldman Sachs to help launch the card, with MasterCard doing the payment processing on the back-end. The physical card is also intriguing in its own right. It has no card number on it, no CVV security code on the back, and not even an expiration date. All of that information is safely stored in the accompanying Wallet app. Notably, purchases made with the physical card will net users 1% cash back instead of 2% if they use their device.
