Washington: Louisiana governor Piyush “Bobby” Jindal on Wednesday jumped into the 2016 White House race with a twitter message making him the first Indian-American and 13th Republican candidate to do so.

“I’m running for President of the United States of America. Join me: http://www.bobbyjindal.com/announcement,” he tweeted shortly after noon ahead of a planned formal announcement in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner Wednesday evening.

“A Special Announcement From Bobby Jindal. My name is Bobby Jindal, and I am running for President of the United States of America. There were three people I think you would agree my wife Supriya and I had to tell first,” said a second tweet.

Jindal’s tweet came shortly adviser Curt Anderson told reporters at a morning briefing: “We get into the race at 5 o’clock tonight.”

A hidden-camera style video of the governor telling his kids about his decision to run followed.

His daughter quickly leveraged the information, requesting a puppy as her share of the deal.

“OK, if we move into the White House, you can have a puppy,” Jindal told his daughter.

Apple will shut down its last of the three Apple Watch-exclusive stores — located in Tokyo — it built when it launched the wearable in 2015.

On May 13, the last Apple Watch-exclusive store will close its doors. Twitter user Shotaro Akiba has shared a photo on the microblogging platform showing the department store’s announcement, Engadget reported on Sunday.

Apple had shut down the other two stores in London and Paris last year. According to 9to5mac website, the shop held a sale in which it was selling the remaining Apple Watch Edition inventory for as little as $700.

These 18-karat gold watches were sold for at least $10,000 and as much as $17,000 when they first became available, the report said.

Earlier this month, high-profile applications, including Instagram, Amazon, Google Maps and Twitter, pulled out their apps from the WatchOS. Driven by Apple Watch Series 3 shipments, the Cupertino-headquartered giant shipped a record 18 million Watch devices in 2017 — an increase of 54 per cent compared to the previous year.

“The Series 3 was the key growth driver, as total shipments of the latest version of Apple’s Watch were just under nine million, making up nearly half of all shipments in 2017,” Singapore-based market research firm Canalys said.

Apple’s shipments in the fourth quarter of 2017 grew by more than 32 percent over the fourth quarter of 2016 to eight million — the highest-ever number of shipments in a single quarter for any wearable vendor. IANS
