Let’s Develop Financial Resilience From A Young Starting With Your Child

Want to raise children who are financially savvy and have enough savings to tide over unexpected life events like unemployment and unexpected healthcare expenses? Financial resilience starts at a young age. Most experts would recommend to educate them on simple financial concepts whilst they are young. Children are highly perceptive and pick up money habits at home while they observe how their parents make decisions on everyday expenses. Here are some ways to inculcate good financial habits to children at home: Start small Start the concept of savings by asking your children to save for a toy or an item which they want. Make it a short-term goal and something which they can work towards to. Give your children different jars to compartmentalise their “savings”, “spending” and “investing”. This way, they are ingrained since early childhood that not all money given to them should be spent. Giving Cash Rewards To Children – The Carrot and Stick Approach in Parenting Housework Train your children to be responsible individuals who will clean up after themselves. Set up a schedule of tasks/ chores which they have to complete and reward them with pocket money to instil in them that they have to work […]

Apple is secretly funding a legal battle against a rival

TwitterFacebook

Suits, countersuits, and everything in between. When Apple and billions of dollars are involved, you know things are going to get messy. 

Well, messy and interesting. Because, in what can only be read as a “don’t mess with us” play from Apple CEO Tim Cook, it turns out that the Cupertino-based behemoth is financially backing the legal defense of four iPhone manufacturers in their battle with Qualcomm — a company that just so happens to own the chip technology that allows iPhones to connect to cell data networks.

Apple is working on a way to let you covertly call 911 in an emergency

TwitterFacebook

Calls to emergency services could become just a fingerprint away, thanks to Apple’s latest innovation.

A patent application from Apple published Tuesday, according to CNBC, described technology that would trigger a 911 call in a way that is designed to hide your actions from attackers. 

This “panic command,” when activated, would provide your location to first responders. It could also livestream audio or video from the phone.

The current means of phoning 911 are “readily apparent to someone watching,” explains the author of the patent application. With this new technology, a user could appear to comply with an attacker’s request to unlock his or her phone, but actually covertly call 911. Read more…

Snap Inc. is now selling Spectacles on Amazon

TwitterFacebook

Snapchat Spectacles: They changed the snapping game and can be seen on the faces of every trendy hipster at this summer’s major music festivals.

Now, Snapchat’s parent company Snap Inc. is making it even easier for you to get your hands on these shades by selling them on Amazon.

Before today, you could only buy Spectacles in a few different places. When they first came out, your only option was to live in a city with an interactive vending machine that only sold Spectacles, called a Snapbot. The only issue was that these Snapbots disappeared after being in a location for a day, so you had to be quick if you really wanted a pair.  Read more…
