Johnny Rotten of ‘The Sex Pistols’ Spent £10,000 on iPad Apps

John Lydon, best known as ‘Johnny Rotten’ has revealed he spent £10,000 (about $15,000) on iPad apps.

Talking to The Telegraph, Lydon said that “A bit of my childhood was taken from me and I’m determined to bring it back.”.

“I wasted – you’re the first to know this – 10,000 f‑‑‑‑‑‑ pounds in the last two years on apps on my iPad. I got into Game of ThronesGame of WarReal Racing, and I just wanted to up the ante. And like an idiot I didn’t check myself. I’ve been checked now. But there’s a kid in me, see?”

I wonder how much he spent on in-app purchases?

Apple to Lay off Beats Employees after Recent Acquisition

Well it looks like Apple are going to be laying off staff at Beats as soon as the deal goes through. Apple recently purchased Beats for $3 billion, which is Apples biggest ever purchase. The company is looking to lay off 200 staff from areas that overlap both Apple and Beats technology, A person familiar with the restructuring plans says that Beats workers in human resources, finance, and other roles will be let go. The source claiming to know Apple’s plans didn’t want to be identified since the plans aren’t public at this time.
So if you work for Beats and work in one of those departments, i’d get job hunting!

I’m sure one will be released soon.  Apples purchase of Beats does make a lot of sense as Beats are high quality products, so are Apples so the pair are perfect for the market, maybe they’ll ship some new in-ear headphones by Beats with the iPhone 6 now that it’s owned by Apple, who knows! I personally hate both Apple and Beats because I hate their corporate strategies, I’ll be sticking with my HTC One M8 and Sennheiser HD598s thank you very much.

No official comment has been made by Beats nor Apple regarding the layoffs.

Google Announces The Availability Of Google Wallet Debit Cards

It looks like the Google Wallet Card has been officially released. The prepaid debit card lets Google Wallet users make payments with their Wallet balance at ATMs, banks, and any business that accepts MasterCard Debit. You can request your own card as long as you’ve verified your identity, and Google says it should arrive within 10 to 12 days. Shipping is free, and there are no activation fees to get started with the card. From there, the Google Wallet Card can be used for purchases both online and in physical stores just like any other debit card, and you’re also able to withdraw cash from ATMs nationwide.

Your Wallet security PIN doubles as the debit card’s PIN when buying things, and Google has set a maximum limit of spending per day to $5,000. The Google Wallet Card was rumored to arrive earlier this year, but reports say that the project was put on hold by CEO Larry Page.
