Apple removed scam apps that used a devious trick to steal from iPhone users — and it reveals a growing problem with the App Store (AAPL)

Scam apps for iPhones were discovered over the weekend that trick users into making in-app purchases they didn't mean to make.  Sometimes these scams steal as much as $120 from a user. Apple hasn't commented but it removed the scam apps from its App Store over the weekend. Apple says that it approves every single app on the App Store, but cracks in that review process are starting to show. 

Apple's App Store is often called a "walled garden." Apple has a team of reviewers that inspect every submission and update for over 2 million iPhone and iPad apps.

But apparently, there are some snakes that have made their way into the walled garden — and they're stealing money from iPhone users, sometimes as much as $120, in the form of in-app purchases. 


The CEO of Dropbox explains the one thing that's worse than having your startup fail: becoming a 'zombie startup'

At Business Insider's Ignition conference, Dropbox CEO Drew Houston explained the one thing that's even worse than a failing startup: a "zombie startup." A zombie startup is a company that's neither "succeeding nor dying." Houston said focusing on growth is the best way to avoid "zombie mode."

How Singapore solved garbage disposal

Singapore is a 279-square-mile island, which means open space is a precious rarity. To combat growing landfills, the country instituted a waste-to-energy system in the late 1970s. It generates energy by incinerating most of the country's waste and then dumping the ash into a landfill. However, the question of how long this system will last as it faces new challenges still remains.


John Krasinski explains why 'A Quiet Place 2' will not feel like a traditional sequel

John Krasinski gave some insight to Business Insider on his plans for the sequel to "A Quiet Place" he's currently writing. He said it was his wife, Emily Blunt, who described it best, calling it not really a sequel but "the second book in a series of books. It’s a widening of a world."

 

John Krasinski is not shy to admit he had no interest in doing a sequel to “A Quiet Place.”

The $17 million horror movie, in which a family fends off creatures that kill you if you make a sound, was a cash cow for Paramount in 2018, as the movie took in an incredible $340.6 million worldwide at the box office. Of course, the executives wanted Krasinski — who wrote, directed, and starred in the movie alongside his wife Emily Blunt — to make another.


NASA will reach an asteroid today that may contain raw materials for the origin of life. Watch the rendezvous live.

NASA launched a 1.7-ton probe called OSIRIS-REx toward Asteroid Bennu in September 2016. On Monday, the $1 billion mission will catch up to its asteroid target and begin an 18-month study of it. NASA will eventually use OSIRIS-REx to grab about 2.1 ounces of Bennu and launch that sample back to Earth. You can watch live video coverage of OSIRIS-REx's arrival at Asteroid Bennu on NASA TV starting at 11:45 a.m. EST.

After a two-year chase through deep space, a truck-size NASA space probe is about to arrive at its alien target: asteroid Bennu.
