What do all the iPhones actually cost now?
Apple’s big September event was yesterday, which means two things: the company introduced new iPhones and cut the prices of its older models. If you’re interested in an upgrade from your aging iPhone 5 or 6, but the $999 iPhone X is a little pricey, it’s the perfect time to take a look at some of the slightly older iPhones that Apple sells. To help you out, we’ve broken down exactly what your options are, along with how much everything costs. iPhone SE The iPhone SE is the smallest iPhone in the lineup, with a 4-inch display and a design that resembles the original iPhone 5. But internally, it offers the same A9 processor and improved camera as the iPhone 6S, making it a pretty good deal for those who don’t mind (or even prefer) the smaller size. The screen isn’t quite as nice as larger-sized iPhones and Touch ID is slower, but the iPhone X doesn’t even have Touch ID, so something is better than nothing. Prices: 32GB for $349, or 128GB for $449Colors: Silver, gold, space gray, or rose gold iPhone 6S / 6S Plus The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are upgraded versions of the iPhone 6. It’s got the same design, with a choice of a 4.7-inch screen on the 6S, or a 5.5-inch display on the 6S Plus. There’s also support for Apple’s 3D Touch feature, and you get the ability to take animated Live Photos. Those two things, combined with a faster processor, are the main differentiators compared to the older 6. Prices: iPhone 6S: 32GB for $449, or 128GB for $549 iPhone 6S Plus: 32GB for $549, or 128GB for $649Colors: Silver, gold, space gray, or rose gold iPhone 7 / 7 Plus The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were released last year, overhauling the camera from the 6S, with the 7 Plus getting a dual-camera system and a wide and telephoto lens. Along with the processor boost (to an A10 Fusion chip), the 7 line also added IP67 water resistance. Prices: iPhone 7: 32GB for $549, or 128GB for $649 iPhone 7 Plus: 32GB for $649, or 128GB for $749Colors: Silver, gold, black, jet black, or rose gold iPhone 8 / 8 Plus Of the new models announced yesterday, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus look pretty similar to the last few generations of iPhones, but they swap the all-aluminum shell for a glass back to facilitate the new wireless charging, upgrade the screen to a True Tone display for better color accuracy, and offer the usual camera and processor improvements (this time, to the new A11 Bionic six-core chip). At starting prices of $699 and $799, respectively, they’re the most expensive base costs for any iPhone yet. Prices: iPhone 8: 64GB for $699, or 256GB for $849 iPhone 8 Plus: 32GB for $799, or 128GB for $949Colors: Silver, gold, black iPhone X The iPhone X is the new flagship iPhone, with a radical new design, a new Face ID system for unlocking your phone, and an edge-to-edge bezel-free OLED display. It also has the improvements of the iPhone 8, including wireless charging and the new A11 Bionic chip. But at a starting price of $999 (not including taxes), customers on a budget might want to consider some of Apple’s older — and far, far cheaper — options instead. Or at least wait for the reviews. Prices: 64GB for $999, or 256GB for $1,149 Colors: Silver, black

The Financial Times reports that Amazon is embarking on a difficult journey: it’s developing smart glasses that tether to your phone and allow you to invoke and interact with the company’s Alexa voice assistant. It isn’t clear exactly why they have to be glasses, since Alexa primarily listens for voice commands and responds vocally as well. The glasses are said to have a bone-conduction audio system built-in, so you don’t have to wear earphones to hear Alexa – but what’s the eyewear for?

Norway's sovereign wealth fund is now worth a trillion US dollars
ReutersThe sovereign wealth fund of Norway, officially known as the Government Pension Fund of Norway, is the largest in the world. It allocates the country’s vast oil wealth into bonds, stocks, and to a growing extent, property. It is known to be able to move entire asset markets by its investment decisions. Yesterday, the fund’s total value surpassed one trillion US dollars for the first time. “On Tuesday 19 September 2017 at 02:01 CET, the fund value hit $1,000,000,000,000, or 1 trillion dollar, for the first time,” the fund said in a press release. “Reaching 1 trillion dollars is a milestone, and the growth in the fund’s market value has been stunning,” said Yngve Slyngstad, Chief Executive of Norges Bank Investment Management, the central bank arm that manages the fund. Created on the back of the country’s vast oil wealth to provide its citizens with pensions, Norway’s sovereign wealth fund today owns around 1.3 per cent of the world’s entire listed equity. Among its largest holdings are corporates including Alphabet, Facebook and Roche. This post first appeared on Business Insider Nordics. See the original article.

Magic Johnson Subpoenaed to Testify in Draymond Green Lawsuit
Los Angeles Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson has reportedly been subpoenaed as a witness in a lawsuit filed against Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green. Citing court documents, the Mercury News' David DeBolt reported Tuesday that legal representatives for former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson "want to question Johnson about a tweet he posted following the incident outside a Michigan restaurant." The tweet, which was sent in July 2016, referenced a conversation Johnson and Green had after the two-time NBA champion was arrested in East Lansing, Michigan, for allegedly assaulting Edmondson. Green, who was initially charged with misdemeanor assault and battery, later reached a plea deal and paid a $560 noise violation to avoid jail time. Edmondson and his girlfriend, Bianca Williams, are now suing Green for assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress, per DeBolt. Johnson is expected to provide a deposition to the plaintiff's attorneys Oct. 4 at the Lakers practice facility.

Trump takes a jab at the Emmys after threatening to 'destroy North Korea' in first UN speech
Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesTwo days after celebrities threw verbal jabs at President Donald Trump during the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards, Trump fired back at his critics with a tweet. "I was saddened to see how bad the ratings were on the Emmys last night - the worst ever," Trump tweeted on Tuesday evening. "Smartest people of them all are the "DEPLORABLES," Trump said, referencing a term Hillary Clinton used to describe some of Trump's supporters during the contentious 2016 election. Though the 2017 Emmys ratings were not "the worst ever" as Trump described, they averaged 11.4 million viewers, about 100,000 more than in 2016 — the show's all-time low, according to Variety.  During the awards Sunday night, Trump bore the brunt of several jokes made by its host, comedian Stephen Colbert and several other celebrities who won awards that night. "Unlike the presidency, Emmys go to the winner of the popular vote," Colbert joked at one point, referring to the results of the US presidential election. Trump's comments about the Emmys came just hours after he delivered a fiery speech before the United Nations General Assembly in New York, in which he threatened the US could "totally destroy North Korea" if its nuclear aggressions continue.NOW WATCH: Here's where the most hate crimes occur in the US — it’s not where you think

Kasey Kahne lands 2018 NASCAR ride, signs with Leavine Family Racing
Kasey Kahne will replace Michael McDowell as driver of the Leavine Family Racing No. 95 car. Kasey Kahne is the latest big-name free agent to solidify his 2018 plans, announcing he will join Leavine Family Racing next season to replace Michael McDowell as driver of the No. 95 Chevrolet. The 37-year-old Kahne is losing is spot with Hendrick Motorsports at the end of the season despite having a year remaining on his contract. Kahne’s largely underwhelmed during tenure with Hendrick going 102 races between wins before winning the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July. Kahne is joining a middle-class, single-car team, a dramatic change from the four-car Hendrick team that is regarded as one of NASCAR’s best organizations. LFR was founded in 2011, but didn’t begin running fulltime until last season and is winless in 139 Monster Energy Cup Series starts. “I want to thank Leavine Family Racing for this opportunity and will work as hard as possible to help them continue improving,” Kahne said. “I am ready for this challenge and look forward to making a fresh start.” McDowell and LFR have shown marked improvement this season, with McDowell recording 13 finishes of 20th or better -- compared to nine in 2016 -- including a career-best fourth in the July race at Daytona International Speedway. The team currently sits 26th in the owner standing, four spots higher than the year before. Despite the increased performance, team owner Bob Leavine said Kahne gives the team a driver who’s shown he can win at NASCAR’s top level in addition to someone it can market to potential sponsors. Kahne has won 18 races in a 14-year career and qualified for the playoffs six times. He is currently ranked 15th in the 16-driver playoff field, coming off a 21st-place finish in the postseason opener Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway. “We look at this as an opportunity to go to the next level,” Leavine said. “This deals partially with performance, because obviously, Kasey is a playoff-caliber driver. He has a wealth of information being with a larger organization like Hendrick Motorsports, and we think that will help us. We also look at this as an opportunity for marketing to be able to sell sponsorship. “Overall, we think Kasey is a good fit and felt we needed a change. There is absolutely nothing that Michael did, it was just a matter of us having to make some changes to help us move up the ladder and be a factor in the playoffs. I know Kasey will bring things that will help us.” Why it matters: Although a high-profile driver, there was uncertainty whether Kahne would find a ride to continue racing in Cup. And while LFR isn’t an upper-echelon team, it does provide him a good opportunity to rebound after an uneven five-year stint with Hendrick. Kahne moving out of the spotlight that comes with be a Hendrick driver spotlight and getting the chance to rejuvenate his career unfortunately comes at the expense of McDowell, whose average finish is only 1.6 positions higher than Kahne this season. McDowell’s options to remain in Cup are suspect, unless he can find sponsorship to bring to another mid-size team.
