Apple has acquired social-media analytics firm Topsy Labs for more than $200 million, according to people familiar with the matter. The startup specializes in Twitter data.
An Apple II that spent the last 33 years in Katmandu, Nepal, most of it packed away in a hospital basement there, was a rare symbol of the charity of Steven P. Jobs.
The start-up’s five founders are expected to rake in $50-85 million from the acquisition.
Sir Jonathan Ive, KBE, and Marc Newson, CBE, have collaborated with musician and philanthropist Bono to organize a (RED) Auction celebrating the very best of design and innovation. Jony and Marc have spent the past year and a half curating the collection, which comprises objects from disciplines as diverse as space travel and lighting design to contemporary art and rare automobiles, all unified and distinguished by their excellence and innovation. Proceeds from the 23 November 2013 sale at Sotheby’s New York will benefit The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
I recently returned Apple’s iPad Air Smart Case and picked up the CaseCrown Omni off Amazon for $19.99. I just got it and I’m pleasantly surprised. The cover actually lays flat all the way around and when folded provides great support for typing or viewing angles unlike Apple’s smart case. The only negative I can find is that the hard polycarbonate back seems to add a little more weight compared to leather but that’s not a huge deal to me at this point. How about you guys? Have you found the perfect iPad Air case yet? Please let me know in the comments below.
