Apple has been hit with a lawsuit alleging that free-to-play games on the App Store that feature in-game currency constitute illegal gambling.
The lawsuit, lodged Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut, claims that Apple “promotes, enables, and profits” from gambling games on the App Store.
For example, the plaintiff in the case, Karen Workman, says she downloaded an app called “Jackpot Mania” in 2017, and “began purchasing coins through the app so he/she could continue to play for a chance to win free coins that would enable him/her to enjoy the game(s) for a longer period of time.”
In the six months before filing the suit, Workman spent $3,312.19 on in-game coins, the lawsuit adds.
Although gambling apps are banned on the App Store, the complaint argues that apps with in-game currency still fall under the “gambling” category because users “have the ability to win
Wall Street has been a white man’s world since its inception. So have venture-backed startups. Currently, black or Latino people run less than 3% of venture capital funded businesses and women run a scant 9%. But if Lauren Simmons has anything to say about it both industries are going to become more diverse and colorful.
At 22, Lauren made history by being the youngest and only full-time female equity trader on Wall Street for Rosenblatt Securities. Hailed as the “Wolfette of Wall Street,” she’s also only the second black female trader to work on the trading floor in the New York Stock Exchange’s 225-year history.
Now at 26, in addition to helping Millennials and Generation Z-ers get on top of their personal finances, Lauren is hosting the interactive series “Going Public,” which
In the video, which was uploaded by Twitter user @RupertMyers with the caption “I have watched this 35 times”, the woman is seen supporting a baby as it leans in to grab a champagne flute. But as the baby grabs the glass and pulls it with some champagne spilling, the
TikTok has given us some superhuman tricks and stunts in the past, but nothing has come close to this impressive feat: a woman running a mile in under five and a half minutes…while nine months pregnant. As so many athletes have shown us in the past, you should never underestimate what a pregnant woman is capable of. This mom-to-be is proving it by…well, just watch:
Amazing, right? The TikTok has been played millions of times by viewers impressed with the strength on display.
According to BuzzFeed, the woman in the video is Makenna Myler, who told the outlet she’s been running almost daily throughout her pregnancy, has “been very particular with my strength training to make sure my pelvic shift and added weight didn’t/doesn’t cause any injury.” Myler added that, while discussing how her pregnancy could affect her pace, her husband “said he would give me $100 if I
The woman who praised President Trump for his smile and called him handsome is ripe for parody on “Saturday Night Live,” and Twitter’s already decided who should play her — Academy Award winner Allison Janney.
In case you missed it … the Prez was fielding questions during his Town Hall Thursday night from voters who apparently are still undecided, when a woman named Paulette Dale stole the show by fangirling out.
Paulette — a registered Republican who indicated she’s leaning toward voting for Joe Biden — decided to shoot her shot with Trump before asking her question … by telling him he has a “great smile.”
This prompted an awkward smile and a “thank you” from Trump before Paulette really went for it, telling him … “You’re so handsome when you smile.”
A woman that moderator Savannah Guthrie identified as Paulette Dale, who was said to have voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016 and “leans slightly” towards Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the current election, appeared to flirt with the president just before asking him a question.
“Good evening Mr. President, I have to say you have a great smile,” Dale, a registered Republican, said as Trump thanked her with a wide grin. “You’re so handsome
