If you can afford cup of coffee, you can surely buy Iphone X: Tim Cook

Apple is expecting to make more money this holiday season than ever. It is expected to make as much as $87 billion in revenue in three months out of which iPhone X will be responsible for $30 billion sales.

Tim Cook encourages people to buy an iPhone X by saying that “So if you think about that, that’s a few coffees a week. It’s less than a coffee a day at one of these nice coffee places.” Well, that must be some REALLY nice coffee place. Tim said this in the fiscal Q4 call where the major focus was iPhone X.

Tim Cook is right in a way. As if you get the iPhone X through Apple upgrade program, you’ll get it for $56 a month. If we break it down, that is less than $2 a day. And a coffee surely costs you around the same amount of money.

“The iPhone X orders are very strong for both direct customers and channel partners, which as you know are lots of carriers throughout the world. As of a few minutes ago, the first sales started in Australia. I’m told we had several hundred people waiting at the stores in Sydney, and I’m getting similar reports from stores across that region.”

Eight years of isolation from International Cricket ends

LAHORE: Even Pakistan’s prime minister did not believe it could happen but when Sri Lanka visit Lahore on Sunday for a T20 match, the hosts will celebrate the end of eight years of isolation from international cricket.

Less than a year ago, none of this appeared possible for a nation that had largely been shunned by international teams since 2009 due to security risks.

That year gunmen attacked a bus carrying the Sri Lanka team from their hotel to Lahore’s Gaddafi stadium for a match, injuring six players and killing six security personnel and two civilians.

The incident forced Pakistan to play their home matches in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the country has since remained starved of international cricket at home, apart from Zimbabwe’s limited-overs tour in 2015.

Last year, the inaugural Pakistan Super League (PSL) — based on the franchise model of the Indian Premier League and Australia’s Big Bash League — became a success, though all the matches were played in the UAE.

Things changed in March this year when Pakistan hosted the final of its domestic T20 competition featuring high-profile international players.

“Even that baby step seemed an impossibility. I can tell you that none of the franchises wanted it, they were scared… the government was scared…the players were scared,” Najam Sethi — the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) — told Reuters in an interview.

The match proved pivotal in changing the global cricket community’s opinion of Pakistan’s ability to host international matches and garnered support from cricket’s governing body, the International Cricket Council (ICC).
