grandcentralterminal

The New York Observer reports that Apple may be looking to build a retail store right in the middle of New York's Grand Central Terminal. Reliable sources tell The Observer that the company hopes to open a store in the transportation and retail hub, though it has yet to begin the long approval process necessary for opening in a city landmark.

A Freezing Cold Winter, An Exploded iPhone



exploded iphone

A Norwegian woman was driving her car, with the iPhone plugged in the stereo playing some music when suddenly, her iPhone explodes. The glass shattered, the iPhone broken on its back. Of course, she took the iPhone to the nearest Apple Store but the assistant said that they couldn’t repair it under Apple’s policies because an iPhone wasn’t meant to be working under such temperatures. Apple does not replace a device if it has been used under normal conditions. But freezing is normal in some countries.
