Amazon is taking a page from brick-and-mortar retailers. This holiday season, the web giant will reportedly publish a catalog in an effort to win business that's now up for grabs in the wake of Toys R Us closing. These catalogs will be mailed to millions of U.S. households and will also be handed out at Whole Foods locations across the country.
Your next iPhone could have a splash of color. Apple is gearing up to release three new iPhone lines this fall in a variety of colors including red, white, blue, gray and orange. The phones are also expected to be less expensive than the $1,000 iPhone X, as demand for iPhones slows.
