Looking to download that killer app for your iPhone or iPad? You might be able to browse through the listings on the App Store or iTunes Store, but you won't be able to actually make a purchase. The problem started at around 5am and is still affecting both stores seven hours later. There is no word from Apple as to when it expects to have both stores functioning normally.Coincidentally, this comes the day after a CIA plan to hack into Apple iPhones and iPads was revealed by Edward Snowden. The plan, which was designed to create a back door that would secretly be built into apps created with a rogue version of XCode. Information about iPhone and iPad users would go out the back door and straight to a CIA "listening post."So do we think that the CIA is behind today's outage? Nah. But it might be hard convincing all of the conspiracy theorists out there that there is no connection. Meanwhile, as soon as Apple makes the necessary repairs, we will let you know.source: AppleUPDATE: The Apple … [Read more...] about Apple App Store and iTunes Store are both down (UPDATE: Problem solved)
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - New parents often hear about how important sleep is for their babies' development -- but some newborns may have more serious sleep challenges than others. A research team at the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Michigan Medicine is studying infants at the highest risk of sleep disorders, including those with chronic illnesses. The team's latest research focuses on newborns with spina bifida, which is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the U.S. All 20 babies in the study had myelomeningocele, the most serious form of spina bifida, and each was diagnosed with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) right after birth, according to the team's findings published in the Journal of Pediatrics. SDB, which includes conditions like sleep apnea, can prevent children from having healthy sleep critical to their growth, learning and behavior. "Our team is studying high-risk patient populations to see how often and how early we can identify a … [Read more...] about Some newborns with chronic illness show signs of serious sleep problems at birth
