TODAY’S TOP STORIES
Appeals court agrees Cleveland officer should get job back after sexting scandal
The Cuyahoga County Appeals Court has sided with an arbitrator in saying a Cleveland police officer should get his job back after the city fired him for inappropriately texting women on the job. The court decision shows the city fired detective Vincent Lucarelli in January 2013. Internal investigators found he had sent “sexually explicit and inappropriate messages” to seven women including crime victims. Then an arbitrator reduced the punishment from firing to a suspension without pay. The city appealed the decision, but the appeals court sided with the arbitrator.

Apple’s next goal: an unbreakable iPhone
Now that the FBI has discovered Apple can actually hack into its own iPhones, Apple engineers see their next goal as making a version of the device that even Apple can’t break into. Apple engineers are now in a race against time to see if they can design an unbreakable iPhone in the next few months. They hope the added security can appear in the next iteration of Apple’s operating system and its next iPhone model, according to several security researchers in direct contact with Apple employees. Apple will not confirm that it’s working on this. The company’s stated policy is to not discuss future products. However, a company spokesman has made clear that Apple routinely improves the security of its devices and services.
