We recently reported on a story about how a toddler saved his mom’s life by using her iPhone to FaceTime her friend who then called 911 who arrived to help her in time. That was a great example of technology used to help save a life, and now we are hearing of another story in which an iPhone was used to save a soldier’s life in Afghanistan.
According to the report, Staff Sgt. Shaun Frank was serving his second tour of duty when he and his team encountered a suicide bomber who then proceeded to blow himself up. The ensuing explosion sent shrapnel all over the place and in every direction.

With the iPhone 5c, it was Apple’s attempt at releasing a more affordable iPhone handset. It wasn’t exactly that much cheaper, meaning that customers who wanted an iPhone would much rather pay a little more to get the latest hardware, rather than slightly less for older technology, which might explain why the phone is a flop.
However it seems that despite the apparent failure of the iPhone 5c, Apple still has its eye on emerging markets such as India, and according to a recent report from The Economic Times, it has been suggested that Apple is looking to open up more retail stores in India to help push the iPhone to customers living in the region.
