Apple apologises on their racial behavior for throwing black teens out from Apple Store

Apple apologises for black teen thrown out of an Apple shop in Melbourne “because they might steal something”

Apple CEO, Tim Cook Calls Racial Profiling Against Blacks In Apple Store ‘Unacceptable’

A group of six black teenagers aged 15 and 16 were asked to leave the store when a member of staff expressed concerns than they might steal something. The manager of the said Apple Store in Australia on Thursday apologized for this racial incident.

The youths allege that due to the color of their skin they were asked to leave from the store in Melbourne’s Highpoint Shopping Centre. The teens were born in Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Eritrea and Egypt and now had emigrated to Australia as children.

The incident led to one of the teens, Francis Ose to post a video of Tuesday’s incident on his Facebook page, captioning it: “Simply Racism” wherein the technology giant faced accusations of racism in a backlash. The video quickly went viral and led to an outcry on social media.

Microsoft’s 20GB Threshold Windows 10 update (v1511)..

Windows 10 Threshold 2 (v1511) update is full of bugs that will frustrate users

Microsoft rolled out a massive Threshold 2 earlier this week as the first major update for Windows 10 that comes with significant improvements for both the operating system itself and the pre-installed apps. However, as always, the Microsoft engineers seemed to have bungled on a number of things. The update, which is supposed to be error free, brings additional woes to the Windows 10 users.

First and foremost, this massive 20GB update reinstalls the bloatware the Microsoft had shipped with Windows 10. Many users had removed apps that were shipped preinstalled in Windows 10 using the PowerShell commands, but after installing Threshold 2, all of them are brought back on your PC.

Second bug has been called the 44% bug by Gordon Kelly of Forbes. Many users who update are reportedly getting stuck at 44%. InfoWorld user Waseemulla S asked about this in the official Windows Forum and Microsoft moderator Softie Anannya Podder explained it may be to do with SD card issues:

“We’ve observed that some devices that have an SD bus with an SD card inserted while installing the Windows 10 November update will stop responding at 44%, and we are currently investigating the issue.”

Apparently, if you are advised to remove the SD card before updating Windows 10, however, those who use an SD card to make up for a lack of disk space will have to either free up space on their SD cards or buy a new higher capacity one to install the 20GB update.

Third bug with the update is that it deletes installed programs when it updates. Reddit user,supernoodles2011 noted on a Reddit thread that Threshold 2 is deleting a number of installed programs as it upgrades. A reddit user has noted that the deleted apps are found in Windows.old folder created by the update in the root drive and can be brought back from there. The apps being deleted are given below :

  • CPU-Z
  • Speccy
  • 8gadgetpack
  • Cisco VPN client
  • SATA drivers
  • SpyBot
  • RSAT
  • F5 VPN
  • HWMonitor
  • PC meter
  • Java Eclipse Mars
  • Steam
  • Origin
  • Adobe CS
  • Android Studio
  • and many more.
