Sears Holdings Corp (SHLD) Stock Marches Toward a Delisting

Top Stories - Thu, 08/23/2018 - 12:00

Sears Holdings Corp (Nasdaq: SHLD) announced on Thursday that it will be making yet another round of store closings as it continues its uphill battle to demonstrate a path to long-term viability. Unfortunately, the plan for a leaner, more efficient Sears hasn't worked up to this point, and analysts see little reason to suspect closing more stores will change Sears' fate. After announcing 100 store closures in January and another 100 closures in May, Sears said on Thursday that it will close 46 additional Sears and Kmart stores in November.

Irish church's fall from grace haunts pope's Ireland trip

BLESSINGTON, Ireland (AP) — When St. John Paul II visited Ireland in 1979, the Catholic Church wielded such power that homosexuality, divorce, abortion and contraception were barely spoken of, much less condoned. Catholic bishops had advised the authors of Ireland's constitution, and still held sway.

Community service: Apple isn’t here to solve Tesla’s problems

Macworld - Thu, 08/23/2018 - 10:00

The Macalope used to find suggestions of Apple buying Tesla utterly ridiculous. But thanks to Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s meltdown of late—from declaring one of the rescuers of the trapped Thai soccer team a pedophile to inviting SEC scrutiny after suggesting on Twitter he was taking the company private—he now finds them merely ridiculous.

It is unlikely that Musk wants to step down as CEO of Tesla, so what is the most ridiculous take possible?

Crazybaby Air Nano review: Tiny wireless earbuds with big problems

Macworld - Thu, 08/23/2018 - 09:00

Crazybaby’s Air Nano wireless earphones remind us that it’s pretty difficult to make a pair of true wireless headphones that can beat the pricing of Apple's AirPods. 

We're not all that surprised: The associated technology is still pretty fresh and it doesn’t come cheap. Companies who want to take Apple’s wireless darlings head-on thus often end up cutting corners in everything from build quality to audio fidelity if they want to claim similar features to what AirPods offer while still matching Apple’s pricing.

In the case of the Air Nano, the $99 price tag for ostensibly smaller, similarly equipped truly wireless buds looks attractive, but the final product comes comes with too many annoying issues for me to recommend them.

How to secure dispose of old storage media, like hard drives and SSDs

Macworld - Thu, 08/23/2018 - 08:00

Macworld reader Phil wisely asks how to erase securely the data on old Macs and external drives before sending them off to electronics recycling centers. He asks about hard disk drives (HDDs), solid-state drives (SSDs), and RAM.

We sometimes feel our digital memories are highly transient, given how readily a disk drive crash or broken device makes them irretrievable. But it’s not so: data lingers! Reports regularly emerge of TV news stations or security researchers buying everything from surplus laptops to old photocopiers that used hard drives for storing documents and finding secrets and personal information in huge quantities.

Any qualified electronics recycling center should make some representation about what happens to your data. Some will disclaim all responsibility. Others have specific polices. In the latter case, you might also wonder if they follow those policies or not, so there’s an element of trust (though some have certifications).
