Uber Boss Practices Brinksmanship With Apple


Uber CEO Travis Kalanick has a reputation of playing fast and loose with rules, but it appears that a maneuver his company performed on iPhones took his ride-hailing outfit to the brink of ruin a couple of years ago. When Apple discovered Uber was planting code on iPhones that persisted on the devices even after the ride-hailing app was removed, Apple CEO Tim Cook warned Kalanick in a face-to-face meeting to stop the practice or the Uber app would be kicked out of Apple’s App store, according to a report.

Twitter May Kick 300 Employees Out of Its Nest


Twitter appears close to slashing another 300 jobs, or about 8 percent of its workforce, as it works to recover from a failed round of acquisition talks with several suitors. The job cuts likely would be in sales. Twitter might be taking steps to make itself look more attractive to investors in preparation for its third-quarter earnings report later this week, which is expected to disappoint once again. “Twitter was a challenged company before it was put into play by takeover suitors,” said Tim Mulligan, senior analyst at Midia Research.

American Bookworms Still Love Paper


The death of the printed book appears to have been greatly exaggerated. Nearly three quarters of participants in a recent Pew Research Center study said they had read a book in the last year, largely on paper. Of the more than 1,500 American adults who said they’d read a book in the last 12 months, nearly two thirds had read a print book. That’s more than twice the number who had read an e-book during the period, and more than four times as many who said they’d listened to an audio book.

4-Inch iPhone: Slow and Steady May Win the Race


Apple appears to have experienced a lost weekend with the 4-inch iPhone SE failing to rack up significant sales. When the period ended, the SE claimed only 0.1 percent of the iPhone market, Localytics reported Monday. “The new phone was unable to take away the iPhone 5’s share, the model it most closely resembled, suggesting that small-screen lovers have not yet been convinced to upgrade from their 5 models to the new iPhone SE,” observed Localytics Marketing Research Analyst Caitlin O’Connell.
