Apple surprised Wall Street today with stronger than expected earnings in its second quarter, though the company came up short in its estimates for the next one.
Apple reported earnings of $9.5 billion on $43.6 billion in sales. That was right on target with the $9.5 billion in profit and just barely above the $42.3 billion in sales that Wall Street expected.

Pictures often hold much more information than meets the eye, but maybe you're not aware of how much, where it is, and what this information might say about you.

Some of that data might be personal or sensitive, especially if you're a commercial photographer; but even amateurs who want to protect their privacy have an interest in purging sensitive personal and … Read more
