Trump dal Evropě půl roku k dobru. Odložil cla na auta


Americký prezident Donald Trump zřejmě odloží rozhodnutí o zavedení nových celních poplatků na dovoz automobilů a automobilových součástek do Spojených států až o šest měsíců. Agentuře Reuters to řekli tři nejmenování představitelé Trumpovy administrativy. Odklad rozhodnutí bude podle nich oficiálně oznámen v nejbližších dnech.

I went to an Apple store for a repair and was blown away by how disorganized it is now (AAPL)


Tim Cook

  • Apple's retail stores are all over the world — the international brand ambassador for Apple products.
  • In recent years, Apple stores have abandoned traditional structures like checkout counters and the iconic "Genius Bar" in favor of roaming employees equipped with iPads.
  • On a recent visit to get a Mac computer repaired, I experienced firsthand just how messy and disorganized this approach can be. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Years ago, when the iPhone was still a relatively new device, Apple stores were a novel experience.  They had large, open floor plans paired with the shining beacon of the "Genius Bar," and a subtly tucked away checkout counter somewhere in the back. When you walked in, products were clearly the focus — on display at every table, in distinct sections for iPhones, iPads, and various Apple computers.  It felt familiar, like a normal retail store experience, but better. Those days appear to be gone.SEE ALSO:  Angela Ahrendts transformed Apple's stores. But will the changes stick? Starting in 2016, Apple Stores ditched the Genius Bar and checkout counters. As Apple has increased in popularity, so have its stores. With that popularity came increased foot traffic, and the Apple store experience suffered. Going to get a cracked screen fixed, even with an appointment, became a far less pleasant experience as you waited for someone to help you. As the company struggled with accommodating more people in its stores, its signature "Genius" employees — people who were specifically employed to solve issues with Apple's products — were particularly overwhelmed .  The company's retail leader, former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts, was in charge of the proposed solution: Get rid of the Genius Bar, cut the checkout counter, and empower every employee to help every customer directly.  It may not be a bad idea in theory, but — as I learned at a recent trip to my local Apple store to get a computer repaired — the concept doesn't always work in reality. Things started out well enough! A few years ago, I permanently switched from the iPhone to Android. I still use a MacBook Air personally, and I'm writing this on a MacBook Pro I use for work every day.  I'm only saying this because, nowadays, I go to Apple stores far less than I did in the past. My memory of going is still rooted in the Golden Era of Genius Bars and best-in-class customer service. But, this week, I scheduled a repair at the Apple store across from our main office. My mother-in-law has a Mac Mini that was acting up, and needed a look.  Scheduling the repair on Apple's website was as easy as always. I even had to reschedule it a few times, and the system was extremely accommodating.  When I actually got to the store, though, things quickly changed. Entering an Apple store is a completely directionless experience that puts the onus on customers in a bizarre way. When I walked into the Apple store for my repair, it was completely unclear where I was supposed to go. Various Apple employees milled about, helping customers at desks or rushing from one part of the store to another. Products were lining the tables, able to be used by interested customers.  I looked around for any sort of sign that would direct my attention to a repair table or employees who could check me in for my scheduled appointment, knowing I would find none. Admittedly, Apple stores have never been big on signage, but the flow of the store usually directed customers naturally toward what they wanted. I hadn't come in to browse, or give the iPhone XS Max a shot — I was just there for a straightforward repair. I Číst dále >>>

18 times 'The Simpsons' accurately predicted the future


donald trump the simpsons

19 years ago, an episode of "The Simpsons" predicted that Donald Trump would one day become US president . And this wasn't the only time the writers have managed to predict the future. The most recent prediction to come to light is from an episode two years ago, which preempted Daenerys Targaryen's big plot twist on Sunday night's penultimate episode of "Game of Thrones." Read more: 'The Simpsons' predicted Daenerys Targaryen's big plot twist on 'Game of Thrones' 2 years ago "The Simpsons" has been running for over 27 years, so it's inevitable that some themes that crop up in the show might occur in real life. But some of the plotlines are eerily close to events that have happened throughout the world. We've listed some of the strangest predictions the cartoon's writers have made since the show's launch in 1989, from Homer discovering the Higgs boson to animators drawing The Shard in London almost 20 years before it was built. Edith Hancock, Amanda Luz Henning Santiago, and Carrie Wittmer contributed to previous versions of this post.

A famous Monet painting just sold to a mysterious buyer for a record $110.7 million — more than 44 times what the seller paid for it


monet painting haystacks

A Claude Monet painting just sold for $110.7 million at a Sotheby's auction, according to CNN. The 1890 painting from Monet's "Haystacks" series broke the record for the most expensive Impressionist artwork ever sold at auction , according to Sotheby's. The painting sold after eight minutes of "heated competition" between six bidders, The New York Times reported. The buyer was in the room but has not been identified. The $110.7 million price tag is about 44 times the $2.5 million the seller paid for the painting in 1986.  Read more: The 16 most expensive paintings ever sold Monet painted his "Haystacks" series at his home in Giverny, France, in the winter of 1890-1891. The one sold Tuesday evening "distinguishes itself from others in the series by its vibrant paint palette, dramatic diagonal brushstrokes of varying directions that meet at the center and a unique perspective with only part of the first haystack appearing in the foreground," according to AFP. While it broke the record for Impressionism, the Monet painting is not the most expensive painting ever sold at auction. That would be Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," which sold for $450 million at a Christie's auction in 2017 to Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

The best body pillows you can buy


Insider Picks  writes about products and services to help you navigate when shopping online. Insider Inc. receives a commission from our affiliate partners when you buy through our links, but our reporting and recommendations are always independent and objective. best body pillow

  • Body pillows provide a combination of support and comfort so you can sleep like a baby.
  • The Snuggle-Pedic Ultra-Luxury Full Body Pillow is the best you can buy because it's incredibly comfortable, hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant, and machine washable.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, sleeping on your stomach isn't good for you . Think about it this way: Would you stand and look to your right or left for three hours at a time? Probably not. If you did, you probably wouldn't like how your neck felt afterward. This is where a body pillow comes in handy. It allows you to sleep on your stomach while still providing sufficient support and alignment for your neck. Body pillows are generally best for people who like to sleep on their side or stomach, but there are some styles that work well for back sleepers, too. Pregnant women seem to get the most benefit from this cushioning since stomach sleeping is no longer an option. People who are recovering from surgery, seniors, and athletes can find relief from aches and pains with the right body pillow as well. What to look for when shopping for body pillows Unless you have previous experience sleeping on a specific pillow, you will want to choose a brand that offers a trial period and a full refund if you are not satisfied. For instance, our top pick, the Snuggle-Pedic Full Body Pillow, comes with a 120-night, no-questions-asked return policy. Fill and cover material are also important considerations. In our research, we found the highest-rated pillows had a fill that is hypoallergenic and breathes well, such as shredded memory foam, microbeads, and synthetic down. Cover material is a matter of preference, but we found that polyester and bamboo seemed to offer the most comfort to buyers. Many pillows have some off-gassing when you first take them out of the packaging. This is harmless, but you may want to let your pillow sit in a well-ventilated area for a few days before you use it. This will also allow tightly-packaged pillows to expand to full size. Although, you can also help the fill expand and release some of its odor by tossing the pillow in the dryer and running it at a low temperature for about 20 minutes or so. We looked at hundreds of expert and buyer ratings and reviews for dozens of models before choosing five body pillows that were comfortable and cool, moldable and supportive, and versatile. Here are the best body pillows you can buy:

Here’s every single new emoji we're getting in 2019


2019 emoji

  • More than 50 new emojis will be made standard in 2019, based on a list from the Unicode Consortium.
  • Many of the new emojis are tied together by the theme of inclusivity, introducing symbols for deaf people, blind people, and people in wheelchairs.
  • While Unicode made the new emojis official in March, it may be a while before they show up on your favorite device.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories .
More than 50 new emojis will become standard in 2019, based on the final list approved by the Unicode Consortium . Unicode is responsible for defining which emojis make onto all platforms, including iPhones, Android devices, and computers. Many of the new icons are tied together by the theme of inclusivity, introducing emojis for deaf people, blind people, people in wheelchairs, and those with prosthetic limbs. This year's update will allow users to choose the race and gender of both people when choosing an emoji that features a couple. Unicode first introduced support for skin color in 2015, but users were limited to heterosexual emojis for couples, and could only select couples with the same skin tone. While there are 59 distinct new emojis, variations for skin tone and gender make for a total of 230 individual images. A March update to Unicode made the emojis usable online, but each company will choose when to introduce its own version of the new emojis. (Apple typically adds new emojis to its iOS devices with a Fall update.) Here are the new emoji coming online later this year, with images from Emojipedia: SEE ALSO:  The creators of 'Pokémon Go' are launching a Harry Potter game later this year.

You can follow these steps to turn them back on. How to enable cookies on your iPad 1. Open the Settings app and then, in the list on the left, tap "Safari." 2. In the Privacy and Security section on the right, make sure that "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking" is turned off by swiping the slider to the left, so it's grayed out. 3. In the same section, ensure that "Block All Cookies" is also turned off by swiping the slider to the left. cookies 2 4. Close the Settings app. Your cookies are now enabled. How to enable cookies in other browsers on your iPad If you have installed third-party browsers on your iPad such as Firefox or Chrome, there's nothing special  you need to do to enable cookies: they're always enabled by default, and in fact they generally can't be turned off in those apps. If you are using a browser like Firefox or Chrome and want to browse without cookies, you should use Chrome's Incognito mode or Firefox's "Private" mode.
