Apple Has Record Earnings

Apple had another record-breaking three months of sales earning nearly $50 billion dollars in revenue, most of it coming from sales of iPhones, iPads and Mac computers.


The company also sold more than  $1 billion in Apple Watches and ended up with a profit of almost $11 billion dollars. That doesn’t quite match the $18 billion dollar profit for the first 3 months of 2015, but it’s certainly not bad.


Government Targets LifeLock

The Federal Trade Commission is accusing ID theft protection company LifeLock of making misleading claims about their services.  The company offers identity-theft protection plans  for consumers and for businesses, but the government says the folks at LifeLock didn’t do a very good job of protecting their customers’ private data.

They say that credit card, bank account, and Social Security information was not properly protected by the company and they did not provide the promised alerts to consumers as soon as there was a problem with their accounts.

LifeLock claims it has done its best to cooperate with the FTC and that they’ve already taken care of any security issues with their data and business practices.

 Smart Caps Tell You If Milk Has Turned

Here’s a great use for 3D printing: “smart caps” that let you know if the milk in the fridge has gone bad. Researchers at the UC Berkley have developed caps that can measure changes in the bacteria of liquids.  All you have to do is tip the bottle upside down and let the liquid touch the cap.  If the milk is off, the user will be notified.


Users could also test the freshness of juice or milk on the supermarket shelves with these caps. The cap is still in the development stage.

    The Apple watch is the new craze great make it affordable for all not just a few get real. yes it took money to develop but the sales have already topped what it took to do that plus all the hype to get it on the must have list. Moms and dads are working the bodys to death plus The hard working folks who make $10.00 an hour are going without food and other needed items to have it. Come on apple think of all the folks who have bought your product over the years and made you the giant you are now. Bring the cost down For the working class who are not big wigs in some multi tech firms who their companies are buying them for their help to get better production out of their help. Your show of faith will bring back a world of wealth and good will. Nice tip though to inform the people how much apple is making. Good job.

    Now the bottle cap for milk will be a good improvement if it does work. Great tip guys.
