Apple’s newly appointed design execs report to Cook, not Ive

The verge - do, 07/02/2015 - 13:04

Newly updated corporate bios for Apple's design team show that the company's new vice presidents of user interface design (Alan Dye) and industrial design (Richard Howarth) will report to CEO Tim Cook — not Jony Ive. The change is part of Ive's transition to a new, more hands-off role as Apple's Chief Design Officer and was announced earlier this year, with the British designer explaining in a profile for the UK's Daily Telegraph that the role "frees [him] up from some of the administrative and management work."

An email to Apple's staff from Cook published at the same time explained that Ive will "remain responsible for all of our design [including] new ideas and future initiatives," but that "day-to-day managerial responsibilities"...

Firefighters use drone to help rescue stranded rafters

The verge - do, 07/02/2015 - 10:59

Firefighters in the town of Mechanic Falls, Maine, have successfully used a drone in a river rescue operation. Earlier this week, two young men aged 12 and 18 became stranded on a rock in the middle of some fast-moving rapids, says the local fire department, but only the younger of the pair was equipped with a life jacket. While rescuers began setting up an inflatable dinghy to retrieve the young men, Fire Chief Frank Roma used his DJI Phantom 3 to fly a haul line out to them. The unnamed 18-year-old then used this to pull in a life jacket before the tricky rescue operation began.

Amazon expands into Mexico with biggest international launch yet

The verge - do, 07/02/2015 - 10:29

Amazon has officially launched in Mexico, offering more categories than any other international Amazon website has featured at launch, in what the American e-retailer says is its biggest international launch ever. The site's official launch comes two years after Amazon started selling ebooks via its Kindle store in the country, testing the Mexican market's willingness to buy items online. That market has grown over the past few years: Billboard cites a Comscore report that says e-commerce sales in Mexico rose from $9.2 billion in 2013 to $12.2 billion in 2014.

Amazon.com.mx stocks products ranging from cameras to clothes, Kindles to consoles, and books to basketballs, but unlike the US version of the store, doesn't sell MP3s through...

Sprint CEO calls T-Mobile's Uncarrier movement 'bullshit'

The verge - do, 07/02/2015 - 08:27

T-Mobile CEO John Legere has a long and storied history of calling out his company's rivals online, regularly blasting Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T on Twitter for their service, deals, and phone plans. While most of his complaints are met with stony silence from the other carriers, it seems not all of them are willing to take his constant needling lying down. Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure finally snapped at Legere tonight, reacting to the T-Mobile boss' criticism of Sprint's new ad campaign with a four-tweet salvo in which he said he was tired of T-Mobile's "Uncarrier bullshit," and said that the company lied to consumers.

Claure referred to T-Mobile's new Jump On Demand program, a phone-leasing deal that allows customers to upgrade their...

André Borschberg, the pilot at the controls of the Solar Impulse 2 aircraft, has broken the world record for the longest solo flight.

And Borschberg isn't done yet — the pilot and co-founder of Solar Impulse has another 40 hours in the air before he's due to reach his destination in Hawaii.

The solar-powered plane took off from Nagoya in Japan on the eighth stage of its 13-stage round-the-world trip earlier this week. The journey to Hawaii was previously set to begin in Nanjing, China, but bad weather conditions forced...
