Authorities have arrested a Pennsylvania man after he allegedly fired on police with an AK-47 a day after shooting at a store clerk who asked him to wear a face mask.Adam Zaborowski, 35, opened fire on three local and state police officers when they pulled him over near his Slatington home the day after the store shooting, Pennsylvania state police said in a statement. Zaborowski was shot at least twice and arrested. He’s expected to fully recover. An officer was left with bullet fragments in the arm.The violence comes amid a spate of ugly confrontations involving Americans refusing to wear face masks to help stem the spread of COVID-19.Zaborowski was “just not handling the pandemic well,” his attorney, John Waldron, explained Sunday to Lehigh Valley Live. “I know there’s been some stressors in his life — I don’t mean that as an excuse,” Waldron told The Morning Call. “The fact that he got shot twice with non-life-threatening injures when he had an AK-47 and another handgun, Adam is very fortunate he ended up the way he did,” Waldron said.The string of incidents began last Friday at a cigar shop in Bethlehem Township when a store clerk told Zaborowski to put on a mask. A witness in the store told WFZM-TV that Zaborowski whipped out what he claimed was a copy of an order from the governor saying he didn’t need to wear one. The state requires masks in public places, including stores.As the clerk argued with Zaborowski, he allegedly grabbed a couple of cigars and walked out. When the clerk followed him to the parking lot, police reported that Zaborowski pulled out a semiautomatic handgun and shot once in the air and twice at the clerk, who escaped injury. Police released video of the shooting, which can be seen above.“It’s crazy, just crazy,” the store witness told WFZM. “It’s the mask. The guy was obviously anti-mask.”Zaborowski has been charged with 22 crimes, including seven counts of attempted homicide, aggravated assault and robbery, and is being held on $1 million bail.He is banned from possessing firearms in Pennsylvania because of a previous aggravated assault case, police said.Related...

Apple CEO Tim Cook released his opening statement ahead of the historic tech antitrust hearing before House Judiciary's Antitrust subcommittee on Wednesday. Cook is set to appear alongside Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and CEO Sundar Pichai of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, as part of an investigation into the companies' power and influence on the tech industry. Cook's opening statement defended Apple, asserting that the company "does not have a dominant market share in any market where we do business." The App Store has been subjected to scrutiny amid "growing concern among lawmakers that the company's App Store — and broader app ecosystem — is hurting developers," according to Business Insider's Hugh Langley and Aaron Holmes. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Apple CEO Tim Cook released his opening statement on Tuesday, ahead of the historic tech antitrust hearing before Congress, which will also feature the CEOs from Google, Facebook, and Amazon. The CEOs of the four tech giants will appear before House Judiciary's Antitrust subcommittee on Wednesday as part of an investigation into its power and influence on the tech industry. Cook's opening statement defended Apple, asserting that the company "does not have a dominant market share in any market where we do business." "That is not just true for iPhone; it is true for any product category," Cook wrote in the opening statement. The App Store has been subjected to scrutiny amid "growing concern among lawmakers that the company's App Store — and broader app ecosystem — is hurting developers," according to Business Insider's Hugh Langley and Aaron Holmes. "The App Store is Apple's second-biggest revenue maker after the iPhone, but Apple's own apps aren't subject to the same rules as third parties, and it's long been argued that this gives Apple another unfair advantage over competition," according to the report. However, Cook claimed that for a "vast majority of apps" on the App Store, developers keep all of the profits per sale, and "the only apps that are subject to a commission are those where the developer acquires a customer on an Apple device and where the features or services would be experienced and consumed on an Apple device." "Apple's commissions are comparable to or lower than commissions charged by the majority of our competitors," the Apple CEO continued. "And they are vastly lower than the 50 to 70% that software developers paid to distribute their work before we launched the App Store." He went on to assert the company's commission rate was "never raised" nor did the company add a "single fee." Instead, Cook said Apple "reduced them for subscriptions and exempted additional categories of apps." "The App Store evolves with the times, and every change we have made has been in the direction of providing a better experience for our users and a compelling business opportunity for developers," he wrote, mentioning "more than 1.9 million American jobs in all 50 states are attributable to the App Store ecosystem." "I am here today because scrutiny is responsible and appropriate," Cook said in his planned opening statement. "We approach this process with respect and humility. But we make no concession on the facts."

Amazon reports its second-quarter earnings on Thursday. Wall Street expects Amazon to report a profitable quarter, even though the company warned it would spend all of the $4 billion in expected operating profit in COVID-19-related initiatives. The bullish forecast is backed by strong sales growth and the continued expansion of Amazon's high-margin businesses, like its cloud and advertising segments. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In April, Amazon said it planned to spend all of the $4 billion it expected to make in second quarter operating profits on COVID-19 related initiatives. Despite all that spending, which included a pay raise for warehouse workers and investments in a new testing lab, Wall Street still expects Amazon to report a profitable quarter — $1.2 billion in operating profits — backed by strong lockdown-driven sales and accelerating growth in high-margin businesses.  The bullish forecast reflects Amazon's remarkable position as one of the biggest beneficiaries of the coronavirus pandemic. Behavioral changes resulting from COVID-19, such as increases in online shopping and cloud usage, are fueling Amazon's expansion even as the the pandemic roils its delivery and supply chain networks. "Simply put, COVID-19, in our view, has injected Amazon with a growth hormone, in ways that rolling out one-day Prime shipping was not able to," D.A. Davidson's Tom Forte wrote in a note last week. The company's stock is up roughly 60% this year, far outpacing the broader market that's been hampered by a struggling economy. Amazon reports its second quarter earnings results on Thursday after the market closes. Here's what Wall Street analysts are expecting for the quarter: EPS (GAAP): $1.48, according to consensus estimates compiled by FactSet, vs. $5.22 last year Revenue: $81.4 billion, according to consensus estimates compiled by FactSet, vs. $63.4 billion last year AWS: $11.02 billion, according to consensus estimates compiled by FactSet, vs. $8.4 billion last year Retail stores are closed, but Amazon is always open All signs point to Amazon benefiting from heightened demand during the quarter, as more people shopped online amid stay-at-home orders and store closures across the country. Amazon's cloud service also likely saw a boost due to the increased use of apps by people working from home.  On top of that, investors believe Amazon's higher margin businesses, like advertising, saw continued growth during the quarter, helping expand its profitability and balance the $4 billion in planned COVID-19 related expenses. "We continue to focus on Amazon's high margin revenue pools (AWS, advertising, Prime subscription revenue) that enable the company to continue to compete aggressively in retail, invest in new initiatives and deliver improving profitability," Morgan Stanley wrote in a recent note. Here are some of the main topics investors will be focused on during Thursday's earnings conference call: E-commerce sales: Investors want to know how exactly COVID-19 is accelerating Amazon's core e-commerce growth. Jefferies wrote in a note this week that the COVID-driven behavioral changes could result in "long-term opportunities beyond a near-term surge in online consumption." In particular, it said Amazon's grocery business could see increased engagement and a larger share of the market following the pandemic. $4 billion COVID-related spend: Amazon already warned that it could spend more than $4 billion on COVID-related projects for the quarter. That includes a $500 million bonus pay, on top of wage increases, for warehouse workers, improved safety measures in its facilities, and roughly $300 million in building out its own testing lab. RBC wrote in a note that it'll be looking for more details around how the spend helped Amazon improve its supply chain and how much more it expects to spend to get back to normal. Advertising growth: Amazon's advertising business, which sells ads to sellers on its site, has seen robust 40% growth rates in the last few quarters. SunTrust analysts believe COVID-19 likely helped accelerate that growth, as sellers continue to rely on Amazon's ads to drive sales. More importantly, ads are more profitable for Amazon, serving as an operating leverage that offsets higher costs in shipping and fulfillment, it said.

If you’re sold on the Note 20 after seeing rumors, the extremely brief official teaser above, and seeing the phone’s design leak extensively on Samsung’s Russian site, you can place a reservation for “the next Galaxy” over at Samsung’s site.

Tech workers in the San Francisco Bay Area are worried about job security over the next six months, according to a new survey.  Job search database Hired surveyed 2,300 tech workers in the Bay Area, New York, and the UK about compensation and work preferences.  The findings showed that 53% of Bay Area employees say they're "concerned" or "very concerned" that they'll be laid off or furloughed in the next six months.  The tech industry has been hit hard in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, with major Bay Area-based tech firms like Uber, Airbnb, and Lyft conducting layoffs, and several venture-backed startups laying off and furloughing employees since March.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. San Francisco Bay Area tech workers are growing apprehensive about the stability of their jobs. A new survey by job-search database Hired that evaluated 2,300 tech workers found that 53% of employees in the tech sector in the Bay Area say they're "concerned" or "very concerned" that they'll be laid off or furloughed in the next six months. Hired also surveyed tech employees in other regions, finding that 42% of New York respondents and 36% of UK respondents were also concerned about losing their jobs.  Hired theorized that tech workers in the Bay Area are so concerned due to the region's high concentration of venture-backed companies, which may be more vulnerable in the face of an economic downtown.  The coronavirus outbreak, which hit the Bay Area hard in early March, has impacted several tech companies and startups in the area. Uber, LinkedIn, Airbnb, and Lyft have all laid off employees since March, and several venture-backed tech startups have furloughed or laid off workers in the last few months.  In June, a report from tech firm Visier, which helps companies analyze and optimize their workforces, found that tech has been impacted by the coronavirus crisis in a different way from other industries. Visier found that the big tech companies, many of which are based in the Bay Area, made bigger job cuts and started laying off workers sooner than companies in other industries. The study also showed that tech firms continued cutting jobs at high rates after companies in other industries mostly stopped laying off workers.  Given that employee expenses, including payroll, tend to make up a significant portion of tech companies' costs, those companies are looking to cut some of those costs during the downturn, Ian Cook, Visier's vice president of people solutions, told Business Insider last month.  "High tech is highly dependent on people," Cook said. "We know that they're always quick and careful to manage that cost base."SEE ALSO: Venture-backed startups are laying off thousands of tech workers as the coronavirus strains finances.

Steve Jobs once said, “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.” This implies creativity is something you’re born with as opposed to something you can learn on the go. While this may be true to a degree, there’s absolutely nothing to stop you from taking inspiration and ideas and encouraging yourself and others to think outside the box — and let’s face it, being able to do so is often… This story continues at The Next Web

Wanna hear something disgusting? A vintage copy of Super Mario Bros. on the NES was just sold at auction for $114,000. Admittedly, it’s one of the most influential games ever (it introduces Mario to the world) and the specific copy was given a 9.4 grading, which means it’s in near-perfect condition. Oh, and there’s some weird technicality about a cardboard hanger tag that makes it super rare. But still… $114,000?

An extremely rare half-dollar coin from 1838, now valued at as much as $500,000, is set for auction this week.The 1838-O Capped Bust half dollar is one of only nine that are known to exist, according to auction house Stack’s Bowers Galleries.No more than 20 coins were made of the first issue of half dollars from the then newly-opened New Orleans Mint, it said, in a statement emailed to Fox News.“This particular mint was established to produce coins of several different denominations at the time but its main focus was the 50-cent piece, which was needed to convert the flow of uneven quality Latin American silver coins into a sufficient quantity of new United States coins fit for banking and commerce,” explained Stack’s Bowers Galleries.The gallery continued: “However, technical issues and the spread of yellow fever in the area limited production of the coin for that year and very few were struck as a result.Now, the 1838-O half dollar is one of the most sought-after coins by collectors and enthusiasts alike due to its rarity and this particular specimen is one of the finest examples available.”
