    Apple calling its stores ‘town squares’ is a pretentious farce

    Excruciating self-congratulation has always been part of Apple’s brand, but the company took this to new levels at today’s iPhone event.

The revenue, the supply chains, the empl...

It means the number of sea arrivals in Spain - at 8,385 - could overtake Greece, which has had 11,713 people. The shift may be because migrants are finding the Spanish route safer.
