Recently a video blogger named Brooke Amelia Peterson got a hands on video with her father’s iPhone X, the problem though it led to her father getting fired by Apple! Ouch!
Apple has reportedly dismissed an engineer after his daughter’s iPhone X hands-on video went viral on YouTube. Brooke Amelia Peterson published a vlog earlier this week, which included a trip to the Apple campus to visit her father and see an unreleased iPhone X. Peterson’s video was quickly picked up by sites like 9to5Mac, and it spread even further on YouTube.
Peterson now claims her father has been fired as a result of her video. In a tearful video, Peterson explains her father violated an Apple company rule by allowing her to film the unreleased handset at Apple’s campus. Apple reportedly requested that Peterson remove the video, but it was clearly too late as the content spread further and further.

Amazon was able to solidify a clear lead in hosted web services, but Microsoft with Windows Azure is gradually starting to catch up.
Amazon Web Services still has the clear lead in the cloud infrastructure market. But according to Thursday’s earnings reports, Microsoft’s rival offering is growing more than twice as fast.
One reason is that longtime users of Microsoft’s ubiquitous desktop software and Windows servers are sticking with the company they’ve known for decades, now that its Azure cloud technology is ready for prime time.
Companies like Sapient Consulting (a part of advertising giant Publicis), software developer Bentley Systems and biopharmaceutical services company Parexel have all chosen Azure over AWS.

The Dutch company Aectual is using huge robots to make cool, completely customizable floors designed to be walked on by hundreds of thousands of people in airports and other public spaces.
