A strong earthquake of magnitude 5.5 hit the northern regions of Pakistan on early Tuesday morning, just before they were preparing for their Roza meal. Tremors of the quake were felt in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Malakand, Swat, Lower Dir, Abbottabad, Mansehra and several areas of Gilgit-Baltistan.

As reported by media outlets, the epicentre of the earthquake was in Afghanistan, 22km west of Ashkasham.

People in Pakistan took to Twitter, expressing their distressing experience and wishing the safety for all.

However, the social media platform also witnessed some tweets in which some conservative residents had blamed the legalization of same-sex marriage in US, as the cause of the natural disaster in Pakistan!

Here are a few of the bizarre tweets:

 

 

 

 

The tweets were also targeted Facebook users who had recently changed their profile pictures using a rainbow-themed app.

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
