How Apple’s push to subscriptions could save the App Store and cost you money

Macworld - Thu, 08/30/2018 - 07:00

You may think you own that application you just downloaded, but chances are good you merely license it. If Apple has anything to say about it, that fact may soon have a much bigger impact on your wallet.

Recently, Business Insider reported on a “secret” meeting last year between Apple and some iOS app developers. Apple apparently encouraged the developers to switch from one-time, standalone purchases to a subscription-based model.

The move is reportedly intended to give developers a more stable source of recurring revenue. It would also, of course, provide that recurring revenue to Apple as well, which takes a 30 percent cut on the first year of subscriptions, and 15 percent thereafter.

Top Stories - Thu, 08/30/2018 - 03:21

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday replaced his defence chief and four other ministers in a cabinet reshuffle after falling approval ratings in recent weeks. Moon has driven a rapid diplomatic rapprochement with nuclear-armed North Korea, but defence minister Song Young-moo came under fire for mishandling a controversy over a defence intelligence unit. In March, documents emerged detailing military plans to impose martial law against protesters demanding the ouster of Moon's predecessor Park Geun-hye last year, but Song failed to report them to the presidential Blue House.

Security camera catches speeding Tesla going airborne after hitting railroad tracks

Top Stories - Wed, 08/29/2018 - 18:42

Teslas are well known for their acceleration, but flying? A Canadian man caught some serious air after speeding over a railroad crossing in Barrie, Canada, on Tuesday at around 8 p.m. local time. A security camera happened to catch the incident, and holy crap. SEE ALSO: Elon Musk opens up about the personal toll Tesla is taking on him The 46-year-old driver "became airborne and crashed over 100 feet into the opposing lane," according to Barrie Today. The Tesla skidded after landing, and eventually hit a tree in a parking lot. Considering Teslas are, you know, not supposed to fly, it's not surprising that the four-door vehicle, which appears to be a sedan, was totaled. The exact model was not released.  Global News reports that the driver of the vehicle was charged with dangerous driving, and was treated at the hospital for minor injuries along with a passenger. Thankfully, no other vehicles were involved.  Teslas are relatively heavy cars thanks to the electric battery, so it's safe to say that the vehicle's impressive acceleration capabilities did help the vehicle go airborne, though given the charges it appears that police are blaming the driver. Here's what the driver saw before liftoff:  Image: screenshot/google mapsA Redditor who claims to live in the area said it's quite easy to get airborne on the tracks: "I live near here and you literally just need to be going 30 to get air. The guy is a moron." WATCH: Say goodbye to your crutches with this hands-free alternative
