Samsung's Galaxy Note7 debacle is a gift to Apple — Samsung's glorious Galaxy Note7 mission has just imploded, almost as spectacularly as SpaceX's Facebook satellite-carrying rocket did on the launch pad just hours before. SpaceX will mop up and launch again. Samsung's Galaxy Note7 might not be so lucky.

Apple's iPhone 7 Event: What to expect — The iPhone 7 will arrive, but all anyone will want to talk about is the missing headphone jack. The reaction to the potential removal of the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the expected iPhone 7 has grown to such outsized proportions that one might expect Apple CEO to step up on stage next week and silently release a balloon with the words "headphone jack" as the audience tracks its journey into the rafters until it pops.

Gene Wilder's humanity always shined through — Kindness. That's what I always saw when I watched Gene Wilder, who died on Monday at 83. No matter what he was doing onscreen: raving like a lunatic, reanimating a cobbled together corpse or breaking out of prison, Wilder's warmth was undeniable and inescapable.
