  • Woman Spends $3,000 On In-App Purchases, Then Sues Apple Over It

    Apple does not allow gambling apps to exist on the App Store. However, it seems that while more explicit gambling apps are not allowed, some apps that feature gambling-like mechanics are allowed, which is the issue. Or at least it is an issue for Karen Workman, who has filed a lawsuit against Apple.

  • Uh-Oh. Russia’s Laptev Sea Should Have Started to Freeze by Now

    This story originally appeared in The Guardian and is part of the Climate Desk collaboration.

    For the first time since records began, the main nursery of Arctic sea ice in Siberia has yet to start freezing in late October.

    The delayed annual freeze in the Laptev Sea has been caused by freakishly protracted warmth in northern Russia and the intrusion of Atlantic waters, say climate scientists who warn of possible knock-on effects across the polar region.

  • This App Lets You Install Google Services Onto Huawei Phones

    As many of you know, Huawei’s more recent smartphones do not come with Google Play Services installed on them due to the company being on the US Entity List. This prevents them from doing business with US companies, such as Google, however, there is some good news on that front.

    This good news comes in the form of an app developed by XDA Developers forum member bender_007. It’s called Googlefier and what it does is that it makes it a quick and easy method of installing Google’s apps onto Huawei and Honor smartphones. While it was possible to do so in the past, the method involved was rather long and tedious and you’d basically need to set aside 20-30 minutes to get everything up and running.

    For the most part, Googlefier seems to follow the same method as before, except that all the processes are in the app itself and
