Oops, Cal somehow becomes ‘Cal State’ for upcoming Redbox Bowl

😉

No, Cal didn’t just lose its accreditation as a university after 150 years. But the Red Box Bowl, which will host the Bears and Illinois in Santa Clara on Dec. 30, did lose a little respect after a merchandise mishap mistakenly referred to Cal as “Cal State.”

Much to the amusement of folks at Cal and on Twitter, T-shirts and other items promoting the bowl game at Levi’s Stadium were being offered online with the glaring mistake.

If you combined all the players in the Cal State University system you would have a pretty good team. Definitely heavy favorites against Illinois.

Bad: @RedboxBowl replaced @Cal with a team from Cal State Nowhere
Good: The Bowl will be played at the Golden Gate Bridge (Architects Cal alums Irving & Gertrude Morrow), Coit Tower (Architect Cal alum Arthur Brown) & the Palace of Fine Arts (Architect Cal Prof. Bernard Maybeck) pic.twitter.com/CcCxEYJHEH

Cal’s star linebacker Evan Weaver showed off online skills befitting a man who just won the Pac-12’s Defensive Player of the Year award. He tweeted “Do it for State!’ along with a “Cal State” hashtag.

A closer look at the T-shirts reveals more mistakes than simply linking Cal with the 23 other state colleges in California. Logos used for both Cal and Illinois were outdated. Worse yet, Red …read more

Apple’s most expensive Pro Display XDR requires a special, Apple-made cloth to clean it

Image: Apple

Apple’s newest top-of-the-line display, the Pro Display XDR, is out today. And it doesn’t come cheap, starting at $4,999, with a matte “nano texture” upgrade for a mere $1,000. If you buy that nano texture upgrade, though, and you ever allow a speck of dust to grace it, don’t you dare think about cleaning it with some water and a microfiber cloth. Instead, an Apple support document says you should only clean that nano-texture glass with a special “dry polishing cloth” that comes with the display, and nothing else (via MacRumors).

Apple hasn’t said why nano-texture Pro Display XDR owners must use its specific cloth over another screen cleaner (we’ve asked), but it’s likely due to how the display is made. “Nano-texture” glass is Apple’s…

Interactive Brokers, Charles Schwab, TD Ameritrade, E-Trade, and Fidelity all moved to eliminate fees for US-listed trades in late September and early October, in turn wiping out huge chunks of some of the companies’ market caps.

Those moves speculated about consolidation across the industry; Schwab said in late November that it would purchase TD Ameritrade for $26 billion.

The announcements rocked the companies’ shares and renewed speculation about consolidation in the industry. And many investors and analysts are trying to guess who will cut next, while at least one startup is actually looking to pay for trades.
