BBC’s Tom Donkin unfortunately had a hard time finding the right camera and on-set location to deliver some world news on Saturday. The newscaster was caught on television rushing from one side of the desk to another in an attempt to find the camera and deliver stories about Hurricane Irma—a hurricane which is no joke, despite how funny his scramble may have been. 

Donkin ended up blaming “wayward cameras” for the blunder, but honestly, we should be thanking the wayward cameras for a moment of levity before inevitably depressing news.  Read more…

Have a broken Apple iPad 4? Apple will replace it with an iPad Air 2

The Apple iPad 4 was launched back in 2012. It was the first of Apple’s iOS powered slabs to employ the company’s proprietary Lightning port. At the time, it also was a major improvement with double the processing and graphics power compared to the previous model. With inventories of the iPad 4 basically non-existent, Apple doesn’t have any more units lying around to replace any busted models.

But don’t fret. If you qualify for a replacement slab, Apple will be more than happy to send you 2014’s Apple iPad Air 2 instead. An internal memo from Apple that was leaked reads, “Starting March …

The iPad Air name is out, welcome the new… iPad. That’s right, it’s now simply ‘iPad’, with no adjective in sight.
This new 9.7-inch iPad looks a lot like an iPad Air and feels a lot like an iPad Air, but it’s not an iPad Air 2 upgrade or successor. Apple is selling this new tablet at prices starting at just $330, a stunningly low entry point for such an affordable tablet.
But there are a few bullet points to keep in mind here:
