Apple’s lead designer, Sir Jonathan “Jony” Ive, has hit out at companies he believes copy his firm’s products, according to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
Speaking at an event hosted by Vanity Fair, the 47-year-old said, “I don’t see it as flattery, I see it as theft.”
He was responding to a question from the audience about Chinese tech maker Xiaomi, but was referring to Apple’s competition in general.
Xiaomi has been accused of copying before, but the company has said the suggestion was “sensationalist”.
Hugo Barra, who was poached by Xiaomi from Google, said the Chinese firm was “an incredibly innovative company”.
But the company has come under fire from people who believed its designs appeared similar to Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

Finally Discovered: A Way To Get Club-Goers To Drink More Responsibly

A new 'study' by Heineken finds that club goers are more likely to drink responsibly if they're being entertained through the night by a top quality DJ. 

By tallying the number of drinks served at the bar at one of Miami's most popular clubs, Mansion, Heineken researchers discovered that people drank about 41% fewer drinks when Dutch superstar DJ Armin van Buuren was behind the turntables than they did when an anonymous DJ performed the night before. 

The conclusion here is that the more dancing people do during the night, the less the total volume of alcohol consumed.

Shortly after eight contestants had completed their tasks, Ikenna finished his and attempted to proceed but was stopped by the anchorman Chidi Mokeme who said:

“Excuse me sir, I don’t want to go sir, give me one more chance, please sir”
