Here's a fun weekend project: if you have a broken iPhone lying around somewhere that's not worth repairing, take it apart iFixit-style and put the parts in a picture frame.
Samsung's anti-Apple advertising campaign continues as the company mounts another effort to highlight the difference between iPhone X and Galaxy S9, this time in LTE speeds, while ridiculing the concept of Genius Bar that Apple successfully pioneered with its retail stores.
The Ohio State University and Apple recently entered into a new agreement, but that hasn't stopped them from poking a little fun their way during a recent OSU football game.
Apple's chief executive was among a group of tech leaders who met with US President Donald Trump earlier today to discuss improving governmental services.
Reuters photographer Carlos Barria was there to document the event.
He snapped up many images showing tech leaders mingling with Trump, but one particular photograph has sparked our imagination, to say the least.
Seen top of post, it shows U.S. President Donald Trump participating in an American Technology Council roundtable at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, accompanied by Apple CEO Tim Cook and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Other tech executives were seated at the table, but they're cropped out.
Cook's facial expression and body language on that image paint a picture of a man who'd rather speak in front of the Google I/O crowd than be pictured sitting next to Trump, and we mean that in a funny and light-hearted way.
At any rate, the photo is priceless, wouldn't you agree? That said, we're struggling to come up with the perfect caption to illustrate the image so maybe you could help us out here?
What is Cook really thinking?

In it, TechRax suggests that users drill a hole in their brand spanking new iPhone 7 in order to access a supposedly hidden headphone jack inside the device.
Siri giving witty responses ahead of major Apple events has become something of a tradition for Apple and part of the festivities by its eager fans.

Best thing you check them out for yourself.
Three days ago, Samsung of South Korea took the wraps off its flagship Galaxy Note 7 phablet. It's a cool, powerful smartphone that features a curved 5.7-inch AMOLED screen, Galaxy S7-like design, speedy chips, an iris scanner and an improved S Pen (which has learned a few new tricks, like translating words, and is now waterproof itself).
Believe it or not, a Samsung executive during the Note 7 unveiling mocked live, on stage, Apple's rumored decision to remove the 3.5mm audio jack from the next iPhone.
“You know what else it [Note 7] comes with? An audio jack. I’m just saying,” he quipped.
