    The only reasons to stay with the iPhone right now have nothing to do with the iPhone

    My iPhone X is fine. I picked up the $1,000 rectangle of glass and aluminum on launch day. I’ve been on Apple’s upgrade program since it launched in 2015, which means I pay a monthly fee, currently $56, and get each new iPhone as it’s released every year. I switched my main phone from Android to iPhone in 2014, with the launch of the iPhone 6. I’ve been there through the iterative years of the designs with the iPhone 6, 6s, 7, and 8. I’ve continued to pay for these phones, because, as my colleague Akshat recently put it, “Apple was producing the best damn phones in the market.” But Apple no longer has a monopoly on quality. Samsung’s most recent phones were my favorites of last year, and for

    Trump's revenge: U.S. oil floods Europe, hurting OPEC and Russia

    MOSCOW/LONDON (Reuters) - As OPEC's efforts to balance the oil market bear fruit, U.S. producers are reaping the benefits - and flooding Europe with a record amount of crude. Russia paired with the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries last year in cutting oil output jointly by 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd), a deal they say has largely rebalanced the market and one that has helped elevate benchmark Brent prices close to four-year highs. Now, the relatively high prices brought about by that pact, coupled with surging U.S. output, are making it harder to sell Russian, Nigerian and other oil grades in Europe, traders said.

Metropolitan Nashville Chief Police Steve Anderson said at a news conference that Reinking is most likely on foot and is probably still close to the area, unless he was picked up by a car. Reinking has had numerous brushes with the law that may demonstrate his mental state.

    Korean Air heiresses to resign as smuggle probe widens

    Korean Air Lines said Monday that two daughters of its chairman will resign from their executive positions amid mounting public criticism over the women's behavior and allegations that the family engaged in smuggling. An official at the Korea Customs Service, meanwhile, confirmed that authorities raided the airline's headquarters in Seoul seeking evidence on alleged smuggling and tariff evasion. Chairman Cho Yang-ho announced the resignation of his daughter Hyun-ah, who returned to leadership last month after a four-year hiatus following a "nut rage" scandal, and her younger sister Hyun-min, who is under investigation for allegedly hurling a cup of water at a business meeting.

    US brands suffer collateral damage in Chinese corporate war

    It was looking like a banner year for business in China. The U.S. clothing company was expecting a 20 percent jump in online sales on Alibaba's Tmall, thanks to the e-commerce giant's massive reach. The company refused to sign an exclusive contract with Alibaba, and instead participated in a big sale promotion with its archrival, JD.com Inc. Tmall punished them by taking steps to cut traffic to their storefront, two executives told The Associated Press.

The latest addition to the family of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who was born Monday just hours after Kate Middleton was admitted to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital, is the first newborn in the immediate Royal Family to be affected by changes to the line in succession. The Succession to the Crown Act, which was introduced in 2013 but only went into effect in 2015, amended the rules surrounding succession to the British throne so it is no longer dependent on gender.

    The Trump stock market looks a lot like Reagan's, and that may not be a good thing

    Reagan's stock market gives clues for the Dow's next move: Acampora    2:27 PM ET Fri, 20 April 2018 | 01:53 Donald Trump, like Ronald Reagan before him, is an outside-the-beltway president. That recently prompted longtime market watcher Ralph Acampora to investigate whether the two had anything else in common. What he found could be a warning to the stock market. "Ronald Reagan had a six-month honeymoon," Acampora, director of technical research at Altaira Capital Partners, told CNBC's "Futures Now" last week. "The percentage gain was roughly about 10 percent." When Reagan was sworn into office on Jan. 20, 1981, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was trading at around 950. The index, which at

    Surprise! Tax Reform Didn't Kill These 2 Obama-Era Taxes

    The tax reform bill that became law last December did a lot to reduce tax burdens for many taxpayers. Corporations got a clear benefit from seeing their typical tax rate reduced from 35% to 21%, while reductions in tax rates for most income tax brackets and increases to the standard deduction and the child tax credit helped to offset the loss of key itemized deductions for individual taxpayers. One thing that lawmakers chose not to do was to seek to eliminate two taxes that had been put in place during the Obama administration, and so those taxpayers who've gotten hit by those taxes can expect to pay them again in 2018 and beyond.

    Oil and gas experts are closely watching the Permian Basin in 2018. The Permian Basin has grown crude oil production from 1.5 million barrels per day (bpd) entering 2014 to over 3.1 mbp today -- and that doesn't include natural gas (it's the second-largest gas play in the country) or other petroleum liquids. Current growth trends and expansion projects predict that crude oil output will rise to over 5 mpd sometime in 2023.

    Russia says no decision yet on delivery of S-300 missiles to Syria

    Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that Russia had not yet decided whether it would deliver advanced S-300 missile systems to Syria, but would not make a secret of the matter if it took such a decision, the TASS news agency reported. Russia's daily Kommersant newspaper, citing unnamed military sources, reported earlier on Monday that Russia might start supplying the anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria in the near future. Lavrov said on Friday that Western military strikes on Syria this month had removed any moral obligation Russia had to withhold the missile systems from its ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    Saudi Arabia’s $100 Oil Dilemma

    Saudi Arabia is rumored to want oil prices at $100 per barrel, but if prices rise that high, it could sow the seeds of the next downturn. Saudi officials want more revenues for their budget and a higher oil price to bolster the valuation of the Aramco IPO. As Liam Denning of Bloomberg Gadfly points out, in the past decade, while oil prices have surpassed $100 per barrel for periods of time, they didn’t stay there for very long.
