Apple has more than once reminded customers it values their security and privacy and has been reassuring them that they won’t become the company’s “product” and that their data will be safely encrypted.

What appears to be the entire trailer has now leaked online, albeit in fairly poor quality. The trailer shows the full team in action and includes a look at the Hulkbuster armor, a super strange version of "I've Got No Strings," and, of course, Ultron. We can't imagine that this trailer will remain online for long, but if you miss it or would rather wait for a better version, a high quality trailer should be available by this time next week. ...

In the early 1900s, the Statue of Liberty changed from a dull copper hue to the green tint we know today, because by then green was in style and dull copper was basically passé (also because of oxidation). At 8AM this Halloween, the Statue of Liberty is getting outfitted with designer bow ties in the name of fashion. ... Or so #brands would like you to believe — specifically Joe Boxer founder Nick Graham, who's decided to use helicopters to fly 60-foot wide, 35-pound bow ties in front of lady liberty in celebration of the launch of his new brand, "Nick Graham."
