Wow, this week we brought in a truly great haul of fresh deals. It’s all about variety — lenses to take even better photos with your iPhone, a combination smartwatch/fitness tracker that’s waterproof, a kit of custom screwdrivers for repairing electronics, and courses in product management. There’s something here for everybody, and all at massively reduced prices.
Apple’s always on the lookout for ways to improve the resiliency of its devices. For this reason, the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office today published a new patent application from the company — calling for retractable drop-proof bumpers to be built into future iPhone housing, capable of doubling as a flotation device in case your handset accidentally lands in water.
The Apple Store in downtown San Francisco got its own water fountain yesterday… sort of.
In the afternoon, a construction worker carrying out work on the the corner of Stockton and Ellis Streets, near to the Union Square brick-and-mortar store, accidentally burst a fire hydrant — resulting in a spectacular geyser of water erupting outside the Apple Store.
Although it didn’t last for long, the spectacle certainly made an impression on onlookers: one of whom filmed it using the slo-mo function on their iPhone.
