Apple has announced that is is launching its own credit card, Apple Card.

There will be both an iPhone and physical version which will launch in the US in the summer, the firm said.

The iPhone version includes a 2% cashback incentive on each purchase, has no late fees, annual fees or international fees, said Apple Pay VP Jennifer Bailey.

It has been created with the help of Goldman Sachs and MasterCard.

News stand

The firm held an event in Cupertino, US to announce a number of new and enhanced services.

Chief Executive Tim Cook was clear from the start that the announcements would be about new services, not new devices.

It is a change of direction for the 42-year-old tech giant.

The firm also revealed a news service, Apple News+, which will include more than 300 magazine titles including Marie Claire, Vogue, New Yorker, Esquire, National Geographic and Rolling Stone.

The LA Times and the Wall Street Journal will also be part of the platform, the firm said.

It added that it will not track what users read or allow advertisers to do so.

Apple News+ will cost $9.99 (£7.50) per month and is available immediately in the US and Canada. It will come to Europe later in the year.

Bitcoin (BTC) Dominance Drop to 50 Percent, will Sell-off Boost Altcoins?


  • Bitcoin Prices slumping
  • Solactive and CMC launching two crypto indices
  • Transaction volumes less than half those of late Feb

CMC in partnership with Germany’s Solactive will launch two crypto indices. Data broadcasts will be from several terminals including Bloomberg’s GDIS and Börse Stuggart. With information based on performance, Bitcoin (BTC) traders will be better equipped and trade accordingly.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Fundamentals

At the time of writing and drawing data from CoinGecko, Bitcoin enjoys a dominance of 50 percent with a market cap of roughly $69,994 million. If anything, this points to uncertainty. All the same, we expect prices to stabilize in coming few days. With better tools to gauge volatility and influence of BTC, predicting price moves and measuring sentiment has been made easy with news of CoinMarketCap collaboration with Solactive.

The two plan to launch two crypto indices. One, CMC Crypto 200 Index (CMC200), will collect price movement data of the top 200 crypto assets weighed by market capitalization including Bitcoin.  The other–CMC Crypto 200 ex BTC Index (CMC200EX) — won’t and helps in tracking the general performance of crypto assets without the influence of Bitcoin. Interested firms can draw data from Global Index Data Service (GIDS) of NASDAQ, Börse Stuggart, Refinitiv of Reuters and the Bloomberg Terminal.

Candlestick Arrangement

Bitcoin

Bitcoin Prices are hovering at last week’s close. From the chart, it is clear that sellers have the upper hand and if bears manage to drive prices below the 20-day moving average, then BTC may collapse.

As we can see, we have a three-day bear reversal, but bulls are firm as prices are trading above $4,000 and Mar 16-21 lows. That’s roughly the 31.8 percent Fibonacci retracement level of Feb 24 high low and a region of interest as laid out in our last BTC/USD price analysis.

If prices sink below $4,000, aggressive traders should unwind their longs and wait for pullbacks above Mar 16 highs at around $4,200. At the same time, risk-averse, conservative traders should wait for full breaks above $4,500 as prices break free from the $1,300 of the last four months.

Technical Indicators

Mar 16 bull bar is our base bar. With decent volumes—13k, which is still lower than those of Feb 24—36k, bears are yet to reverse its gain. As aforementioned, any drop below $4,000 or the 20-day MA with high volumes above 13k could trigger a sell-off towards $3,800 forcing liquidation of longs. If not and there are counter bars driving prices above $4,200 with equally high volumes, then traders should brace themselves for a rally towards $6,000.

Jets re-sign OLB Copeland, fill big hole on D


With a gaping hole in their defense, the New York Jets have re-signed starting outside linebacker Brandon Copeland, the team announced Monday.

Terms of the contract weren’t immediately available. He drew interest from his previous team, the Detroit Lions.

Copeland, 27, was a pleasant surprise last season, as he recorded a career-high five sacks in his first year with the team. He started out in a minor role, but he wound up starting 10 games and participating in 55 percent of the defensive snaps. He also was a key contributor on special teams.

The Jets had an opening at outside linebacker in their 3-4 defense because free agent Anthony Barr reneged on an agreement at the start of free agency. He opted to re-sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

Copeland’s return won’t preclude the Jets from addressing the position in the draft. With the third overall pick, they could be in position to pick Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen.

Copeland, an undrafted free agent out of Penn in 2013, bounced around before playing three seasons with the Lions (2015-17). He signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract last offseason with the Jets. This offseason, he’s working as a co-professor at Penn, where he teaches a financial literacy class.

The Jets also re-signed backup tight end Neal Sterling, who made six catches for 47 yards last season. He was limited to six games because of a concussion.

Kezia Dugdale’s homophobia claim about blogger’s tweet ‘absurd’

Kezia Dugdale said she was “shocked and appalled” by Stuart Campbell’s tweet

A blogger who has taken former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale to court said it was “absurd” to interpret one of his tweets as homophobic.

Stuart Campbell, who runs the blog Wings Over Scotland, is suing the MSP for £25,000 after she criticised him in a newspaper column.

The dispute stems from a piece written by Ms Dugdale in the Daily Record.

Mr Campbell appeared as the first witness in the defamation case at Edinburgh Sheriff court on Monday.

  • For live updates on Monday’s proceedings follow @BBCPhilipSim.

His remarks were posted on his Twitter feed on 3 March 2017 as he was live-tweeting about the Scottish Conservative conference.

Pro-Scottish independence campaigner Mr Campbell wrote: “Oliver Mundell is the sort of public speaker that makes you wish his dad had embraced his homosexuality sooner.”

Mr Mundell’s father, Scottish Secretary David Mundell, came out as gay in January 2016.

Ms Dugdale wrote in her column in 2017 that she was “shocked and appalled” about what she described as “homophobic tweets”.

She added that “such comments are of course not unique to the man who tweets as Wings Over Scotland”, saying the account “spouts hatred and homophobia towards others”.

Ms Dugdale later called on SNP politicians to “shun” Mr Campbell during First Minister’s Questions.

Mr Campbell subsequently launched legal action, arguing that his tweet was intended “though caustic, to be jocular” and saying Ms Dugdale had defamed him by suggesting he was homophobic.

Ms Dugdale’s legal team submitted to the court that the article was a “fair and honest comment” criticising Mr Campbell for “giving voice to homophobic sentiments”.

The UK Labour Party previously paid for Ms Dugdale’s representation in court, but cut this off in September last year.

Equal rights ‘advocate’

Mr Campbell told the court that his tweet was making a “commentary” that Oliver Mundell was “a very very poor public speaker”.

He said: “I don’t think any intelligent person could honestly interpret that tweet as being homophobic.”

Mr Campbell likened it to another online comment where the writer wished controversial columnist Katie Hopkins had never been born.

The blogger agreed “very much” with his QC that it was unacceptable for someone to be mocked on the basis of their sexuality.

He added that he was a “firm advocate of equal rights for gay people”.

While being questioned by Ms Dugdale’s legal team, Mr Campbell said someone would have to be “dishonest or stupid” to think his tweet was homophobic.

Mr Campbell was then asked if he thought Nicola Sturgeon was being “dishonest or stupid” in her response to the tweet during First Minister’s Questions.

He replied that he did not believe she made any “specific reference” to his tweet, but if the first minister believed it was homophobic then she was being stupid.

‘Destroys your credibility’

Paul Kavanagh, author of the pro-independence blog Wee Ginger Dug, and director of Stonewall Scotland Colin Macfarlane were also called as witnesses.

Mr Kavanagh told the court he personally did not think the 2017 Mundell tweet was homophobic, and had not seen anything on the Wings Over Scotland blog that he considered homophobic.

He said that for a blogger, being called a homophobe was like being called a racist or a holocaust denier. He added that it “destroys your credibility” and makes it hard for you to “reach no voters or people who are undecided.”

“It has a very damaging effect,” he said.

Meanwhile, Mr Macfarlane gave evidence on Stonewall’s definition of homophobia.

Mr Campbell’s legal team asked him about gender self-identification – a point raised earlier in the proceedings when the court examined Mr Campbell’s past tweets.

The court heard he posted one comment about a video game level being pitched at “girls and homosexuals”.

Again, Mr Campbell denied his tweets were evidence of homophobia or transphobia.

Mr Macfarlane agreed there was a “diversity of viewpoints” on gender self-identification.

Ms Dugdale is expected to give evidence on Tuesday.

Daedalic Announces The Lord Of The Rings – Gollum, New Narrative-Based Action-Adventure Game


Since Peter Jackson’s blockbuster film adaptations of the J.R.R. Tolkien fantasy series debuted at the turn of the century, fans have rarely had to wait for more than a few years between interactive experiences set in Middle-earth. That steady clip continues with a new partnership between Daedalic Entertainment and Middle-earth Enterprises. 

The Lord of the Rings – Gollum follows the story of Sméagol’s corruption through the One Ring To Rule Them All. The narrative-driven action-adventure title promises to remain true to the original lore, but also will explore “new events and details related to Gollum’s journey.”

“We tell Gollum’s story from a perspective never seen before, in any storytelling medium, all the while staying true to the legendary books of J.R.R. Tolkien,” says Daedalic CEO Carsten Fichtelmann. “At a time when the games industry is undergoing structural changes and seeing new business models evolve, we are excited to realize a huge new production based on a story that has stayed fresh and relevant for more than 60 years.”

The title is being built by Daedalic’s in-house studio using the Unreal Engine and will release in 2021 on PC and “all relevant console platforms at that time.” This likely refers to both current-gen and next-gen consoles. 

The press release intimates that Gollum is the first – but not only – title that will come from the partnership between Daedalic and Middle-earth Enterprises.

Betting favorites made history in round of 32


The betting favorites in the NCAA tournament went on a historic run over the weekend, leaving a Sweet 16 bracket full of blue-blood chalk.

For the first time since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, all 16 betting favorites won in the round of 32, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Three times, in 2009, 1995 and 1991, the favored team had won 15 of 16 games in the round of 32, but this was the first year in which the chalk went undefeated.

Many of the favorites won in blowout fashion, too: Eleven of the 16 games were decided by double digits, with North Carolina and Michigan State among five teams that won by 20 or more.

Duke, the No. 1 overall seed and consensus tournament favorite, had the closest call. The Blue Devils survived two potential go-ahead baskets by double-digit underdog Central Florida in the final seconds Sunday. It was a fortunate ending for Duke backers, including one bettor who placed a $50,000 money-line wager on the Blue Devils to win straight up at -1,100 odds. According to bookmaker William Hill U.S., when Duke prevailed, the bettor won a net $4,545.45.

Auburn was the only lower seed to win in the round of 32. The fifth-seeded Tigers, who were two-point favorites over No. 4 seed Kansas, dominated the Jayhawks in an 89-75 win.

The run of favorites provided a needed lift for the betting public, which got off to a costly start to the tournament, when underdogs went 20-12 against the spread on Thursday and Friday. Favorites bounced back over the weekend, going 10-6 against the spread in the round of 32.

Sportsbooks from Las Vegas to New Jersey reported solid winning days on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sunday, however, was a different story for some books. MGM and the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas said Sunday was their first losing day of the tournament.

“No complaints from me,” Chris Andrews, sportsbook director at the South Point Casino, said.
