WHEN IT comes to cracking down on gun violence, New York has become America's model city. Word is out that police and prosecutors in the Big Apple don't mess around when they catch people who carry or use illegal weapons. It is unlawful to carry a gun without a New York license, even if the owner has a permit from another municipality. Hunters avoid driving through the city, fearing they could get nabbed. And punishment is swift and harsh. In 2007, New York passed a 3 1/2-year mandatory-minimum sentence for illegal gun possession.

Peter Beik, 16, has noticed an ad campaign from Samsung for its Galaxy S III smartphone, but the iPhone user doubts that it will dent Apple's dominance of the industry. "Samsung's ad campaign for the GS III, it's not so much saying, 'Look at how cool our product is,' but rather, 'Hey guys, we make phones, too,' " said Beik, a junior at Masterman High School. Like many consumers, he believes that Apple will continue to dominate the global information technology race, with other companies playing catch-up.

BEIJING - Apple issued an apology to Chinese consumers Monday after government media attacked its repair policies for two weeks in a campaign that reeked of economic nationalism. A statement Apple posted in Chinese on its website Monday said the complaints had prompted "deep reflection" and convinced the company of the need to revamp its repair policies, boost communication with Chinese consumers and strengthen oversight of authorized resellers. The ruling party's flagship newspaper, People's Daily , had accused Apple of arrogance, greed and exploiting the Chinese consumer.

On the northern coast of Spain in Basque country and Asturias, a taste for hard cider instead of wine reaches its height in April, when cider houses called sagardotegi celebrate with calls for "Txotx!" (say: "choach!") and casks are tapped, sending newly fermented fall sidra streaming from holes in the barrel straight into revelers' glasses. Tinto is having its own Txotx party Thursday, and it's an ideal moment to taste how fascinatingly different these ciders are - low in carbonation and vivid with earthy apple essence.

WHAT MAKES Apple so hot - and the envy of all other electronics brands? Its ecosystem, largely. Apple-branded products don't just work well together; the goodies play even nicer when enhanced with accessories made by third-party vendors. Nowhere is this synergy demonstrated better than with the new Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard ($99.99) and matching Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac ($79.99), which Gizmo Guy has deployed to compose this piece. Apple users like to line up several of the maker's devices on a desk.
