Savings bank Volksbanken Raiffeisenbanken will become another German institution supporting Apple Pay. The move will happen sometime by the end of 2019, AppleInsider reported.

The NSA has been found to have improperly collected the phone records of U.S. citizens. Again. The Wall Street journal reported on documents obtained by the ACLU. It said that the collection took place in October but it was unknown how many records were involved. The name of the telecoms firm involved was redacted. The previously undisclosed error, which took place last October, occurred several months after the NSA said it had purged hundreds of millions of metadata records it had amassed since 2015 due to a separate overcollection episode. Metadata include the numbers and time stamps of a call or text message but not the contents of the conversation. The American Civil Liberties Union obtained the documents, which were reviewed by The Wal.

Ever dreamed of managing one of the biggest pop acts on the planet? Well, South Korean pop superstars BTS are giving you that chance in their new iOS game. In BTS World, you start leading the band from their formation in 2012. It gives fans the chance to hear each band member’s story, and conduct conversations with them in the game. The game is free to download but there are a variety of in-app purchases. Oh, and if you don’t know who BTS is, ask your daughter/granddaughter/niece/younger sister. They will know, and will probably have downloaded this game.

Randy Krum created an infographic to visualize Apple product release patterns since 2007. He updated it for this year. This year I further broke apart all of the individual product lines so you can see their separate release patterns, or lack of any discernible pattern. Some product lines, like the iPhone Release Pattern (ABOVE), have clearly defined release patterns that can be used to predict future product announcement and releases. It’s a neat website, and he predicts that the 2019 iPhone will be announced September 10 and released September 20.

If you have ever wondered whether or not you’re in the right in a given situation Reddit has the answer. Wired outlined how users on the Am I the Asshole subreddit will pass judgment on any issue. People go to r/AmItheAsshole for one thing: judgment. They submit scenarios in which they are not sure whether they behaved correctly or not, and ask the hive mind for a ruling. Am I in the right here – or am I the asshole? For posters, it’s a way to satisfy an ongoing argument or settle their conscience. For subscribers, it’s a chance to get on their high horse and enjoy passing down verdicts from an assumed position of moral superiority. Insult your pregnant wife? You’re the asshole! Refuse to cut your hair for a friend’s wedding? Not the asshol.
