**** My Mac Pioneers Appleâs Premium Reseller Program <http://www.crn.com.au/News/234602,my-mac-pioneers-apples-premium-reseller-program.aspx>
Negar Salek, CRN
Apple has dramatically overhauled its premium reseller partner program (APR) by bolstering support for its top-tier channel partners while increasing requirements for entry.
The vendor has also begun co-funding renovations of reseller stores which are prepared to follow the formula of Apple's own retail stores. Apple representatives were strictly enforcing compliance to Apple's retail formula, right down to measuring the distance between displays on the counters.

Apple weathered that Antennagate storm surprisingly well, but now there's another potential cloudburst on the horizon, and it's been pre-named for your convenience: "Glassgate." Or maybe "Glass-That-Shatters-If-Scratched-By-A-Casegate."

Karl Hodge, Macworld UK
With cloud storage and file sharing becoming the norm, Mac users work in increasingly mixed platform environments.

Tim Flannery, The New York Review of Books
When oil gushes into the ocean, the consequences can be indelible. Individuals, ecosystems, even entire communities can be devastated, never to return to what they were before. Yet there are people who rush into the danger zone, for no other reason than to assist the wild creatures caught up in the slick. Dyan deNapoliâs book The Great Penguin Rescue tells the story of the largest wildlife rescue ever mounted.

Sam Holmes And Patrick Barta, Wall Street Journal
A gamble by Singaporean leaders to bring casinos to this famously strict city-state appears to be paying off as tourist arrivals soar, fueling hopes that the resorts will help diversify an export-reliant economy.
Economists are also growing more confident the casinos can serve as anchors for future real estate development that could attract more conventions and expatriates.
