Apple has awarded most of their top executives a $60 million bonus this year. Apple didn't just go and deposit $60 million into each of their accounts, instead they awarded each top executive 150,000 shares. 50% of the shares will be vested on June 21, 2013, and the rest in March 2016. Apple spokesperson Steve Dowling said that the executives are extremely talented and dedicated to their work, and that this is a way to continue to reward them down the road for their hard work.

While at the most recent Show Stoppers event, I had the opportunity to check out the LifeProof case for iPhone 4S (and iPhone 4). Protection is always key for any of our beloved electronics, and whether you are a mountain biker, a swim lover, or a karate king trying to keep your iPhone protected while doing your favorite event is a struggle -- until you meet LifeProof. The folks at LifeProof have spent a lot of time (over two years) designing this case, and a whole lot of money (over two million dollars) into making sure that their product was the best to hit the market.

Apple has announced that they have sold four million iPhone 4S handsets in the first three days of sales, doubling the sales figures of the iPhone 4 in the same period.
“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend—the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”
In addition Apple has also announced that 25 million users have upgraded to iOS 5 and 20 million of them have signed up for iCloud as well.
Full press release below. Did you expect it to sell this well? Were you one of the 4 million who got an iPhone 4S this weekend? Or if you took a pass and thought it was going to be a flop, what are your thoughts now?

No one likes when their favorite application is left out of the update party, and the folks behind WeatherPro didn't want you to feel that way either. An update has hit the AppStore for WeatherPro users that enables iCloud support for those of you who have updated to iOS 5 along with increased radar support. Knowing the weather for the day ahead is always pretty important to many of us, no one likes to walk out of the door in their finest of clothing and step right into the middle of a wild thunderstorm, do they?
