Apple will repair ‘sticky’ MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards

Apple launched a new keyboard service program today, acknowledging that the keyboards on certain MacBook and MacBook Pro models are prone to issues. If users of particular models find that letters or characters repeat unexpectedly or don’t appear at all, or find that their keys feel “sticky” and don’t respond in the correct manner consistently, they’ll be eligible to receive free repairs. Once the keyboard has been examined at an Apple Authorized Service Provider, service professionals will determine whether particular keys or the whole keyboard need to be replaced.

Gadget Lab Podcast: Our Vertical-Video Future

This week Instagram rolled out a new, long-form video feature called IGTV, which lives both within the regular Instagram app and exists as its own app. On this week’s Gadget Lab podcast, Mike and Arielle chat about how the new format works, what long videos (up to 60 minutes!) will mean for Instagram and its creators, how IGTV will stack up to YouTube, and most importantly, whether this means our vertical video futures have officially arrived.

Some notes: You can read Lauren Goode and Louise Matsakis’s story here about IGTV and whether it can compete with YouTube.

Recommendations this week: Arielle recommends The Habitat, a new non-fiction podcast series from Gimlet Media, about a group of people who volunteered for a year-long mission that simulated living life on Mars. Mike recommends this story in WIRED by Lisa Wood Shapiro, about a technology called Grammarly that helped her cheat dyslexia.

Milano, incendio in una palazzina: decine di persone in fuga per strada

Fiamme altissime e una colonna di denso fumo nero e acre. Un grosso incendio è divampato in una palazzina di Arese, nel Milanese. Le fiamme sono divampate poco prima delle 20 in via don Enrico Cantù. Il rogo sarebbe partito da un appartamento e si è ben presto esteso al tetto formato da travi di legno. Almeno cinque le abitazioni coinvolte. In fuga i residenti, una trentina di famiglie sono scese per strada.
