Apple's iPhone upgrade program: What you need to know - CNET
Based on current pricing, Sprint offers the best value for customers who'd like to upgrade to a new iPhone every year, through a leasing program called iPhone Forever. Right now Sprint is offering a promotion that lets customers lease a new iPhone for $15 a month with the option to upgrade anytime they want. In order to get this price, customers have to turn in a functioning smartphone. Without a device to trade-in, the price is $22 a month to lease a new iPhone 6S.
Apple’s First Foray Into Luxury With Hermès Watch Breaks Tradition
SAN FRANCISCO—Apple Inc. is embracing a luxury name for its new $1,500 smartwatch with French fashion house Hermès. But Apple design chief Jonathan Ive resists the notion that Apple is becoming exclusive, a defining characteristic of luxury goods.
How to Live With the 16GB iPhone’s Pitiful Storage
The most important thing to remember about a 16GB iPhone is that it’s not really 16GB. Or rather, much of that 16GB isn’t actually yours. They’ve been claimed by Apple, both through iOS and preloaded, non-deletable apps like iBooks, Music, Photo Booth, and nearly two dozen (!) more. We won’t know how much space truly belongs to you until the iPhone 6S ships, but 10GB would be a very generous estimate.
Trillenium takes virtual reality into online shopping
"The current dot.com experience is pretty sterile. So if they can improve the experience, you might dwell a bit longer, spend a bit longer online exploring products because you can get closer to them, and buy more," said Dave Evans, commercial director at Kantar Retail Virtual Reality, which uses virtual reality technology to help retailers develop real-world stores.
LA is Going to Have the Largest Electric Vehicle Fleet in the Nation
Los Angeles is working hard to reduce its carbon footprint , and a new city-operated fleet of electric vehicles is going to help it do so. Mayor Eric Garcetti has just announced his intentions to lease 160 pure battery EVs — a move that would position LA as proud owner of the largest electric fleet in the nation.
Four Steps to Rock-Solid e-Commerce
Automation makes it possible. Obviously, if you are validating 500 core business processes every day on 30+ virtual machines (as at luxury goods manufacturer Richemont), or testing 300,000 business process steps every night, it can’t be done manually. Those days are over. Today, automation platforms have replaced manual labor with digital labor when it comes to automated functional testing and business process validation. Sure, it’s an investment in new work practices and some new automation software, but that’s small compared to a major disruption in business continuity.
Tim Cook Will Join Stephen Colbert on The Late Show
Apple’s CEO will appear on Colbert’s new CBS talk show next Tuesday. Colbert announced the booking on Twitter, posing with his Apple Watch prominently displayed on his left wrist. CBS confirmed the appearance.
City of LA's electric vehicle fleet includes a Tesla Model S
For anyone who thought that Los Angeles' efforts to turn its traffic problems green would end after a partnership with Waze , think again. The City of Angels has committed to leasing 160 battery-powered electric vehicles and 128 plug-in hybrids for its municipal fleet. A post on the LAPD blog says that the police, fire, general services, water and power departments will split the former, while the general services will also take all of the latter. Mayor Eric Garcetti says that this move puts LA closer to its goal of becoming the "most sustainable city in America."
Microsoft will download Windows 10 even if you don’t want to upgrade — here’s how to stop it
This makes sense if you remember that the Windows 10 installation files can range between 3GB and 6GB (they are saved in a hidden $Windows.~BT folder on your main drive). But that’s also the root of problem: Many Windows users are on connections with limited bandwidth. They are seeing their Internet slow down (although Windows Update should only download updates when your connection is not in use) or, more worryingly, they are blowing through data caps and having to pay over-usage fees to their ISPs.
How much screen time should your children get a day?
Certainly, one of the most pressing questions for today’s parents and their children has to be how much “screen time” to allow. The growth of mobile devices and kid-focused apps have significantly increased the number of hours that kids spend in front of screens, and untold amounts of parental worry have been dedicated to what constitutes the “right” amount. Even apps that are labeled as distinctly for kids, like YouTube Kids, have.

The iPhone 6s vs. the iPhone 6: What's changed?
We've just wrapped up this year's big iPhone event, which means iPhone owners now get to ponder over whether or not to upgrade their handsets. It's easy enough when there are plenty of cosmetic changes and new features to really distinguish a new iPhone from your old one , but this time around we're looking at an iterative 'S' version where, aside from a new rose gold color, the improvements are not always obvious at first glance. Fortunately, we've got the specs for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s lined up for your perusal right here. So you can decide whether it's got enough additional oomph for you to dig out your wallet now, or wait until next year's edition instead.
Which iPhone 6s carrier to choose based on cost — AT&T vs. Verizon vs. Sprint vs. T-Mobile?
Things have changed significantly in the past several years in the wireless industry. With the debut of almost ubiquitous data and the proliferation smartphones, carriers have moved away from calling-centric plans and now base their plans around data. Almost every carrier now offers unlimited calling and texting as part of their base package which is adjusted around data allotments. Customers buying a new phone and switching to a new plan, now have to pick their data allotment first and then add on devices that can share that data. This makes it easy for a subscriber to have a single account with multiple lines for phones, tablets and more. As a result, monthly payments are broken down into two parts — the data allotment that is shared among devices and the mobile access charge for each device. If you purchased a phone using a monthly payment plan, then you will incur a third charge for the device itself.

This means that primates and cetaceans have been on two different evolutionary trajectories for a very long time, and the result is not only two different body types but also two different kinds of brains. Primates, for example, have large frontal lobes, which are responsible for executive decision-making and planning. Dolphins don’t have much in the way of frontal lobes, but they still have an impressive flair for solving problems and, apparently, a capacity to plan for the future. We primates process visual information in the back of our brains and language and auditory information in the temporal lobes, located on the brain’s flanks. Dolphins process visual and auditory information in different parts of the neocortex, and the paths that information takes to get into and out of the cortex are markedly different. Dolphins also have an extremely well developed and defined paralimbic system for processing emotions. One hypothesis is that it may be essential to the intimate social and emotional bonds that exist within dolphin communities.

Your body language shapes who you are
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

What my religion really says about women
Strong faith is a core part of Alaa Murabit's identity — but when she moved from Canada to Libya as a young woman, she was surprised how the tenets of Islam were used to severely limit women's rights, independence and ability to lead. She wondered: Was this really religious doctrine? With humor, passion and a refreshingly rebellious spirt, she shares how she found examples of female leaders across the history of her faith — and how she speaks up for women using verses from the Koran.

6 curious kids interview their moms about life and love
Sarafina Viviano’s mom, Dana, works as a nurse at a cancer center. Dana’s mother, Sarafina’s grandmother, died of breast cancer. And it was the experience of getting her mother’s diagnosis, Dana tells Sarafina, that led her to become a cancer nurse. “I remember thinking that there was a way [the doctors] could have told us that was softer,” Dana says. She’s dedicated her life to bringing that softness and grace to her patients. And according to Sarafina, she’s doing a great job. “To me, you are maybe the angels on earth,” she tells her mom. “You come down and try your best to heal people.”
11 Ways to Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile for More Exposure
While I have information in each of the sections you mention, I am astounded every time I look at a profile and discover the person barely provided any information about what they do, or what they are like as a person. In the sector where I do most of my work, professional services and especially law, I estimate that more than half of the lawyers put anything in their profile beyond the bare bones basics: “Partner, Smith Law Firm.” Not even a mention of what kind of law they practice. Yet surveys show that when a company is thinking of retaining a new lawyer or firm, LinkedIn is the first place they go – and the myriad of professional directories that often charge for a listing aren’t even consulted any more.

The 10 most important things from Apple's iPhone 6S event
Apple events can usually be referenced based on the one flagship they focus on: the iPad event, the iPhone event, the Apple Music event. That doesn’t work quite as well with today’s news-packed event. The company officially delivered on two long-overdue rumors: it refreshed the Apple TV, and it unveiled a giant, almost laptop-like iPad. The iPad Pro is a 12.9-inch behemoth with a matching stylus and keyboard, seemingly designed to fill the same market Microsoft is going after with the Surface. The Apple TV set-top box is back with a new remote and deep Siri integration. Both have a new ecosystem of apps, including productivity tools and games. And both are coming out later this fall: the TV in October, the iPad in November.

DNA from Neandertal relative may shake up human family tree
LONDON— In a remarkable technical feat, researchers have sequenced DNA from fossils in Spain that are about 300,000 to 400,000 years old and have found an ancestor—or close relative—of Neandertals. The nuclear DNA, which is the oldest ever sequenced from a member of the human family, may push back the date for the origins of the distinct ancestors of Neandertals and modern humans, according to a presentation here yesterday at the fifth annual meeting of the European Society for the study of human evolution.

Our morning schedules are ruining our health
The age range where we experience the most sleep deprivation is 14 to 24, when we get about two hours too little sleep per night. From age 24 to 30, we get about 1.5 hours too little, and from 30 to 55, we lose about an hour, Kelley told Business Insider. And the effects are cumulative. "Each day of sleep loss is added on to the next, until have chance to [sleep in]," Kelley said.
