Yes, we invented hipsters too

Now we know where those trendy people in Hoxton and Manhattan get their fashion ideas from. Trust me, next year's must have accessory will be a red-blue-white plastic sack.

The kindness of strangers in Hong Kong

This is not the usual kind of video you get from Apple news. Apparently three girls in Hong Kong have since last Christmas been voluntarily distributing 'tong sui' (sweet soup) to elderly people in the street, as well as stopping for a chat with them.

As one of the girls points out, they do this not just to feed the elderly people they encounter but also to provide a listening ear.

A random act of kindness in Hong Kong? Whatever next?
