Apple sells more iPhones than expected, shares jump after hours

Workers prepare for the opening of an Apple store in HangzhouApple Inc sold more iPhones than Wall Street expected in the third quarter and estimated its revenue in the current period would top many analysts' targets, soothing fears that demand for the company's most important product had hit a wall. IPhone sales dropped for the second straight quarter, pushing down Apple's total revenue 14.6 percent in the fiscal third quarter, ended June 25. Demand for Apple's phones has waned in China, partly because of economic uncertainty there, and has also slowed in more mature markets as people tend to hold on to their phones for longer.

The microblogging service operator's shares fell 10 percent in extended trading with investors concerned about its expansion and role in the social media landscape as it faces intense competition from fast-growing competitors like Snapchat and Instagram. The company's second quarter revenue missed Wall Street estimates and the revenue forecast for the current quarter of $590 million to $610 million was well below the average analyst estimate of $678.18 million.

Tesla's Musk says master plan will require capital raise

Workers continue construction work at the Tesla Gigafactory under construction near SparksTesla Motors Inc's "master plan" to broaden the electric vehicle maker's product line could cost "tens of billions" of dollars over time and would likely require a "modest capital raise", Chief Executive Elon Musk said on Tuesday. Speaking at a formal unveiling of Tesla's $5 billion battery "gigafactory" outside Reno, Nevada, Musk said the new plant being jointly developed with Japan's Panasonic Corp could ultimately support 1.5 million electric vehicles a year. The immediate plans call for Tesla's new Model 3 sedan, due out next year, to reach an annual production level of 500,000 by the end of 2018, Musk said.

The tough days of the dot-com bust were a distant memory, and Yahoo Inc , flush with lucrative advertising deals from the world's biggest brands, was enjoying its run as one of the top dogs in the world's hottest industry. Then they were asked to write down their answer for Yahoo.

U.S. issues first government guide on responding to cyber attacks

A lock icon, signifying an encrypted Internet connection, is seen on an Internet Explorer browser in ParisBy Dustin Volz and Karen Freifeld WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - The White House on Tuesday issued the U.S. government's first emergency response manual for a major cyber attack, though some officials acknowledged it lacked clear guidance on possible retaliation against hacker adversaries. The Obama administration, which created a federal cyber chief position in February that has not yet been filled, published a "presidential policy directive" that includes a five-level grading system. A hack on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which the FBI is investigating, would likely earn a lower grade, depending on any foreign government involvement or intent to meddle in the presidential election.

Never get lost on Netflix again with this brilliant recommendation bot
One of the most frustrating non-issues in all of our lives is trying to decide what to watch on Netflix. Even as the library continues to shrink , there are still thousands of movies and TV shows to sort through, with more original series, films, stand up acts and documentaries being added each and every month. But what if there was a bot that could do the deciding for you? MORE NETFLIX: Every movie and TV show being added in August "And Chill" is the first chatbot that I've personally ever heard of that I actually wanted to use. Originally launched on May 10th, And Chill is a Facebook Messenger-based chatbot that offers movie suggestions based on the criteria you give it. So in theory, if you ask for "a British comedy with a bizarre twist ending," there's a good chance that the bot will suggest you watch Hot Fuzz . The key to And Chill is its conversational tone and ability to understand what you're asking for, even if you aren't talking to it like it's a bot. Unfortunately, And Chill has become so popular that it's having trouble keeping up with all of its users, so you might have to wait a while before you get a response. When I saw the Lifehacker article pointing to And Chill earlier today, I immediately rushed to Facebook to start a conversation. 20 minutes later, I've yet to receive a response, but the bot is definitely still a work in progress. If you want to try And Chill yourself, head to the bot's Facebook page and begin a conversation . You probably won't get a response right away, but be patient.

10 of the worst mistakes in DC movies that you probably never noticed
When DC revealed that it would be building its own movie universe, comic book fans the world over held their collective breath. It's not that we expected the DC Extended Universe to fail, we just knew how big of an undertaking it would be, and how easy it could be to screw it all up by rushing things. Based on the critical reaction to Batman v Superman , fans were right to be cautious. But Dawn of Justice wasn't the first (or the only) high profile mistake DC made. SEE ALSO:  As an iPhone user, I couldn’t be more jealous of Google’s newest Android feature Following a weekend filled with well-received projects from DC's film and television divisions, Screen Rant put together a video compilation of some of the biggest mistakes in DC movie history. Some of these are relatively recent, but others stretch as far back as Batman Returns from 1992. These mistakes probably won't ruin the movie for you (at least not anymore than the movie was already ruined from the outset), but in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , Bruce Wayne runs through a cloud of heavy dust in the beginning of the movie and comes out the other side completely clean. Later on, Batman lays the smackdown on Superman, but a scene later, Superman's wounds have miraculously healed and even his disheveled hair has been styled again. These are just a few of the minor mistakes you might not have noticed. You can see a bunch more in the video from Screen Rant below:
