The Apple glass cube on 5th Avenue is going away for the second time

The glass cube covering the entrance to Apple’s 5th Avenue store in Manhattan never struck us as anything special – it’s just a bunch of glass, really – but it’s unquestionably a landmark. And now, that landmark is going away for the second time.

Last month, Apple filled for a full removal permit and got it granted three days ago. It’s going to spend 2 million on getting rid of the cube, because paying some schoolchildren to smash the glass panels in protective gear and go home would be very un-Apple.

Cupertino is going through the ordeal because it wants …

Thanks to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), we now have what’s likely the first legit photo showing the HTC U. The upcoming smartphone seemingly has a glossy finish, a small fingerprint scanner on the front, plus rounded corners and edges. The device kind of looks like a smaller HTC U …

Sky pool in Houston lets you fly and swim at the same time


Real estate developers use a lot of clever techniques to sell apartments, but this is a new one: stomach-churning fear, with a splash of luxury. 

Situated 40 stories above the city of Houston, with a glass bottom view of the street below, the sky pool at the Market Square Tower probably seemed like a good idea when the developers of this high rise came up with it.
