'Planet of the Apps' wasn't a great show, but it was still a success for Apple

Apple aired the finale of its first original series this week. If you missed it, don't stress. 

Planet of the Apps was a decent 10-episode series, but it's not something that viewers will want to think about for hours like Netflix's House of Cards or talk about with friends like Hulu's The Handmaid Tale

It's just a pretty undramatic, very-edited reality show about dozens of entrepreneurs, people who were trying to make careers off a business based around an app.

Barclays put in sensors to see which bankers are at their desks

Barclays has installed devices that track how often bankers are at their desks.

Managers were peppered with queries when investment bank staff in London discovered black boxes stuck to the underside of their desks in recent months, according to several Barclays employees who asked not to be identified speaking about their workplace. They turned out to be tracking devices called OccupEye, which use heat and motion sensors to record how long employees are spending at their posts.

There was a “phased roll-out” of the devices, and Barclays staff and the Unite union were notified before they were installed, although the bank did not send out a specific memo about them, according to spokesman Tom Hoskin. The Barclays employees said they don’t remember being informed about the boxes, but spokespeople for the bank said there have been no official human-resources complaints. Read more...
