    This small device can tell you realtime what the PM2.5 rate in your house or office is
    Diwali is that time of the year when at least some of us prefer to stay indoors because of high levels of pollution generated by the mindless bursting of crackers. In fact, the situation has been so bad over the past few years that people, at least those with respiratory issues, have been investing in air purifiers. However, most air purifiers have one major flaw: they are unable to tell you what the pollution’s rates actually are.

    Apple says it sold 45.5 million iPhones in the last quarter, 5 percent fewer than it sold a year earlier. But the giant tech company’s rosy forecast for the holidays was better than what Wall Street had been expecting. Apple reported Tuesday that its revenue declined 9 percent to $46.8 billion for the quarter that ended last month. Profit fell 19 percent to $9 billion.
    The results are a reflection of lukewarm interest in last year’s iPhone models. Apple released two new models, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, just two weeks before the quarter ended.
