By Cody Lee on Jul 16, 2011

Here’s a little lesson to all the would-be criminals out there: If you are going to break into your ex-girlfriend’s house, don’t leave your iPhone behind as evidence. While most of us consider that common sense, that doesn’t seem to be the case with Mr. Jason Scott Davis.

By Sébastien Page on May 26, 2011

Apple Sued for Racial Discrimination, Doesn’t Have Anything to Do with the White iPhone 4

Racial discrimination is a valid reason to sue someone for sure, and Apple is about to verify that as 2 NY men are suing the company on the grounds that they are black. Apparently, two gentlemen from NYC were told by an Apple security agent that they were not welcome because of their race… Read More
