Apple is going extra green. And no, that's not a new iPhone colour variant. It's all to do with recycling, with Apple Renew - the company's trade-in and recycling incentive programme - announced proper at the company's iPhone SE and iPad Pro (9.7-inch) event.
So how can Apple Renew benefit you?
One, eligible devices - iPad, iPhone, Mac, even PC or non-Apple smartphone - will be rewarded with instant store credit or a loaded Apple Store gift card. Okay, so it's not cold hard cash, but it can go towards that next Apple product or third-party speaker, protective case or other device. Or be stingy and pass it off as a gift.

Despite of dropping demand for hard disk drives, UBS does not expect prices of such storage devices to decline any time soon because there are two big players – Seagate and Western Digital – and a considerably smaller one – Toshiba Corp. – which cannot ship more than around 22 million HDDs per quarter and thus grab a significant chunk of market share away from the big two.
While we caution potential registrants to be skeptical of claims that a name can be “guaranteed” names, ICANN supports programs that are set up to help interested parties keep track of when the new domain names will be available. For example, some Registrars are providing programs that allow potential registrants to subscribe to status updates on new gTLDs.
SanDisk’s Extreme Pro is a direct successor to the Extreme II (see below). Just like its predecessor the drive lives up to the expectations implied in the model name. It is slightly ahead of the Extreme II in most areas with sequential read speeds of 550 MB/s and write speeds of 520 MB/s (4K random read/write 100K/90K IOPS), although you will hardly notice the difference in everyday tasks.
More importantly though, SanDisk is confident enough to offer a 10-year warranty with the Extreme Pro – a unique offer in the consumer segment. The 19nm MLC NAND is allegedly good for writing 22 GB of data per day for 10 years. Consequently, when this drive finally wears out in the average system built today, the SATA interface will be long since obsolete.
There's no need to go as far as uninstalling Windows 10, but Microsoft does suggest that you restart your computer in Safe Mode and uninstall any of the aforementioned programs. Of course, Symantec would much rather than you continued to use Norton Antivirus, so the company has its own fix for the problem.
1- Restart Windows in Safe Mode.
2- Run Symantec's special fixing tool as an Administrator.
3- Restart Windows as normal.
4- Use the dedicated Norton Remove and Reinstall tool to uninstall the AV software and then reinstall it.
