Trump’s New Biography is Already Raising Eyebrows

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's new biography, “Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success,” which releases Sept. 22, is already raising eyebrows for comparing his schooling at an expensive boarding school to military service. 

In the book, Trump — who never actually served in the military — compared his schooling at the New York Military Academy to military service. The New York Times reports that Trump said the school gave him “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military,” a daring declaration, considering that in July Trump belittled Senator John McCain, who was tortured for five years after being taken prisoner in Vietnam, by saying that was not a war hero.

Most surprising, however, was the appearance of Apple Pencil, a stylist that drew a lot of comparisons to the one that comes with the Microsoft Surface. It's a surprising shift in attitude for Apple given that its co-founder Steve Jobs famously asked, "Who wants a stylus?"

Apple Pencil works with the iPad Pro, a larger, souped-up version of the current model that comes with a keyboard cover. [Wired]
