Apple launches its three new iPhones but also revealed that they will no longer continue the iPhone SE, which is known for its smaller screen. This upgrade in size has seen Apple criticized by feminist activists who claim that the new model is too big for women.

They argue that women have smaller hands and the new phones would not be as comfortable for them compared to the iPhone SE, which is now being discontinued. Female rights and equality activist Caroline Criado Perez decided to share her concerns regarding the matter on Twitter.

She wrote:

“So to be clear: Apple has once again failed to update the only phone it makes that fits the average woman’s hand size … Weak applause all round from my arthritic hands. Anyway, I guess I’d better upgrade now before they DISCONTINUE the only phone that fits the average woman’s hand size … What the hell is wrong with you, Apple? Women. Buy. Smartphones. In fact, more women buy iPhones than men. DESIGN FOR OUR BODIES.”

She also criticized journalists who covered the Apple Event launch for failing to raise the issue with the company. Her concerns have been met with support by other women.

They said that they were “furious” that Apple was not considering what women need when creating their new phones. The discontinuation of the SE is like a slap to the face for them.

iPhone’s smallest display at the momment is 4.7-inches.

The screen width of the new iPhone X models ranges from 5.8in to 6.5in, compared to the smaller iPhone SE, which has a smaller screen at 4in.

They immediately brought up the bigger models would be hard for ladies to utilize since the normal female hand is an inch smaller than the normal man’s.

It is still not known whether Apple will release another small model to replace the SE.

Disney World is constructing a new form of transportation to help visitors get around the parks. The theme park has kept mum on when it will be opened, but as reported by Insider, the completion may coincide with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge late next year.

The new transportation system will be called the Disney Skyliner.

The horseshoe crab is believed to be one of the oldest animals that have been around on the planet. There's something interesting about this arthropod - its blood contains copper, which gives it the color blue, and a gallon of it costs $60,000.

Its ancestors were traced back 445 million years ago. Fact is, the horseshoe crab is not a real crab. Its characteristics are more of the arachnids instead of crustaceans. To date, only four species survived- one is the Limulus polyphemus of North America and the other three species can be found in Southeast Asia.

The blood’s unique response to bacteria was discovered more than 50 years ago.

Daniela Carneiro and Eduardo Ribeiro saw a different potential of the Mercedes-Benz Actros and turned it into a “Truck Surf Hotel.” The six-wheeler hotel may be inspired by van life, but it is much larger than any camper van.

Daniela and Eduardo converted the truck into a double-decker mobile hotel that takes surf camps to a completely new level. If you think sleeping in a truck sounds like roughin’ it, then you haven’t met a truck like this.
