Kohl’s now lets you earn loyalty points through Apple Pay

Technology is supposed to make things easier, but sometimes having an app for everything can be more of a pain than it's worth.

Apple loses exclusive use of ‘iPhone’ trademark in China

The term "iPhone" is synonymous with Apple the world over, but in China, where trademarks are often ignored, a court has ruled that's not exactly the case. Apple has lost a trademark suit in the country against the Beijing-based Xintong Tiandi Technology, which sells leather goods like phone cases and handbags under the product name "IPHONE."

Tim Cook: loyalty rates have never been higher

Tim Cook: loyalty rates have never been higher

The once untouchable Apple has recently become the subject of the same kind of scrutiny, even prophecies of doom, that its rivals, like Samsung, have been enduring for the past years. All for a series of numbers for the past months that have failed to meet analyst projections. Some are going as far as saying that Apple, or at least innovation in Apple, is dead.

In an interview with CNBC, the chief exec tried to correct the perspective, claiming that what's important for Apple right now, more than its first quarter earnings, is customer loyalty.

MacBook 2016 Review – Still controversial

More than a year after it first launched, the MacBook Retina is still one of the most divisive of Apple's products.

Thankfully, developer Nick Lee has put things right. It may take an hour to boot up, but the OS is almost fully functional on the wearable, despite being completely impractical.
