  3. Remember when buying a Mac meant that you got cutting-edge technology? Nowadays you’re overpaying for old, stale ideas wrapped in “thin and light” aluminum shells.

  4. There’s been a whole lot of talk about initial coin offerings (ICO), company fundraising events based around the sale of cryptocurrencies, but not much in the way of action until yesterday.

  7. Netflix has been growing at a rapid pace over the past few years, with international expansion, a focused strategy on original content that gets people talking, and an affordable price point that appeals to younger subscribers.
