Warren Buffett invested $200 million in a fancy furniture retailer with a CEO who likes to quote him
Kevin Lamarque/Reuters Warren Buffett invested more than $200 million in a fancy furniture retailer with a boss who has a history of quoting the legendary investor. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate bought $206 million worth of shares in RH last quarter, according to a SEC filing. "As Warren Buffett said, if the skies darkened and there's an opportunity it's going to rain gold, you want to run outside with washtubs and not teaspoons," RH CEO Gary Friedman said last year.

Apple is removing all vaping apps from its App Store
Apple is removing all vaping-related apps from its App Store on Friday, Axios reports.  The move comes after numerous reports of lung injuries associated with e-cigarettes, which has affected thousands in the U.S. and has resulted in 42 deaths, according to CDC.  While Apple hasn't allowed sale of vape cartridges directly from its apps, the app store contains numerous vaping-related apps — 181 in total, Axios reports.  An Apple spokesperson pointed out the vaping-related injuries as the reason behind this move.  "Experts ranging from the CDC to the American Heart Association have attributed a variety of lung injuries and fatalities to e-cigarette and vaping products, going so far as to call the spread of these devices a public health crisis and a youth epidemic. We agree, and we’ve updated our App Store Review Guidelines to reflect that apps encouraging or facilitating the use of these products are not permitted. As of today, these apps are no longer available to download," the spokesperson told Axios. Read more...More about Apple, Apps, Vaping, Tech, and Health

The election is affecting my mental health – at least I'm not Dilyn the dog | John Crace
No 10’s miserable pooch has been dragged on to the campaign trail. I know the feelingMy father died more than 20 years ago and I increasingly find that I think of him most on Remembrance Day rather than on his birthday or the anniversary of his death in January. He was 18 when the second world war started and 24 – the same age as my son is now – when it ended and he served in the Navy throughout, first in the north Atlantic, then in the Malta convoys and the Sicily landings and finally in the far east. And yet I have almost no details of his time in the war, because he would never discuss it. He would talk about the war in general, but whenever it became too personal he would close the conversation down. It was a part of him that was unreachable, a place he could not bear to revisit because it was still too painful, even 50 years later. It was only just before he died that he told my mother of his recurring nightmare of the time he had been ordered to sail through a sea of men who had been sunk because to have stopped would have meant getting torpedoed as well. The closest thing I have to a record of his service career is a napkin ring on which he had engraved a list of all the ships in which he had sailed. I’ve started going through the archives in an attempt to piece together his war, but this gives little indication of the personal cost. The fear, the guilt and, yes, the moments of boredom. The records show that he was on HMS Quentin when it was sunk by German fighter planes after sinking a U-Boat and I assume it was for his actions in this engagement that he was awarded the DSC. But I don’t know for sure, as he never properly told me. All he would say was that he continued to man the guns as the boat was sinking. But as he was sunk twice, maybe it was another battle entirely. Remembrance Day is about more than just those who lost their lives in war. It’s also about those who spent a lifetime trying to recover from surviving a war. Continue reading...

This security camera uses facial recognition to give you some privacy
A typical security camera can give you peace of mind. But that might be offset by the nagging feeling that it's watching you, too. The best kind of security system is one that protects both your home and your privacy, and the blurams Dome Pro 1080p Security Camera is one rare model that's set up to do both. The HD lens on the blurams is equipped with a 360º field of vision, and it can be set to record any preset area with an Auto-Cruise mode. All footage is uploaded to the cloud, and you can choose to get alerts on any unauthorized motion or human detection - even in the dimmest conditions, thanks to the night vision functionality. You can even record your own alert video. But all the while, you get to decide what areas get recorded and who sets off alerts. The blurams' voice and facial recognition technology can distinguish between pets or authorized family members to avoid false alarms. Want to keep some privacy? The camera can even be set to cover up and shut down when it detects you. You can even set up your own house-wide security system and view up to four cameras on the accompanying app. Right now, the blurams Dome Pro 1080p Security Camera with Facial Recognition + Night Vision is 16% off the regular MSRP, but you can take an extra 15% off that final price by using the online code BFSAVE15, for a final price of $42.49.

Indiana judges suspended after 3 a.m. brawl at White Castle
Three Indiana judges got in a fight. Two were injured, all were suspended. NPR's Laurel Wamsley reports "an incident brimming with colorful details." The altercation apparently started sometime after 3 a.m., when one of the judges, Sabrina Bell, raised a middle finger at two men yelling from a passing SUV, and ended after one of those men shot two of the judges. In between, the three judges took a number of actions that "discredited the entire Indiana judiciary," according to an opinion posted by the Indiana Supreme Court this week, suspending the judges. The court found that the three — Andrew Adams, Bradley Jacobs and Sabrina Bell — had "engaged in judicial misconduct by appearing in public in an intoxicated state and behaving in an injudicious manner and by becoming involved in a verbal altercation." Adams and Jacobs engaged in further judicial misconduct "by becoming involved in a physical altercation for which Judge Adams was criminally charged and convicted." The judges will be in the sin bin for two months. The shooter's been charged with felony aggravated battery. Read the rest

How to wear a big easy coat | Jess Cartner-Morley
It works best when the supersized volume is offset by minimal styling – a neutral colour and not too much detailingA coat that you love is the best fashion investment you can make. Your coat is what you put on as you leave the house on a cold morning. It is what stands between you and the outside world when the outside world is at its least friendly. A great party dress for a fun night out is the icing on a cake – but cake is delicious anyway. A great coat, on the other hand, is a cup of tea and a jaffa cake when you are cold and tired and hungry.It goes without saying that practicality is paramount. But a great coat isn’t just a coat that keeps you warm, it’s a coat that makes you feel great. It is this that differentiates a great coat from a perfectly serviceable coat. The days when life feels a bit as though you are walking uphill into the wind are the days when you most need a reminder of the poetry to be found in a slice of blue sky, a free Pret coffee, or the comfort of a soft collar flipped up against the elements.

No more mellow Yellow: why Coldplay are pop's weirdest band
From genre-spanning albums to collaborating with Brian Eno and Beyoncé, the band are far more radical than people give them credit forAn early Coldplay photo did the rounds recently, and will surely do so again, because it is timelessly hilarious. Anorak, hoodie, voluminous brown cords, V-neck knitwear: they are enrobed in the profoundly lame wardrobe of that late-90s musical era when Travis and Starsailor threatened to drown rock’n’roll in their own anxiety sweat.For so many people, that lameness has never left Coldplay – and this is peculiar because, contrary to the beliefs of almost any self-proclaimed arbiter of good taste, Coldplay are A Good Band. They could have treated their euphoric breakthrough hit Yellow as the aberration that it is on their moody debut Parachutes. Instead it became their mantra, as they cast even their most synthetic music in warm natural light. That sense of adventure is a quality that bands are usually revered for, but because their adventure is a sort of positivist Haribo-fuelled romp, rather than questing into the minotaur’s labyrinth like Radiohead or the National, they aren’t taken seriously.
