An Austrian computer repairman has amassed what he believes could be the world's biggest collection of old Apple computers, but it might all soon be destroyed unless someone can take it off his hands. Over the years since he began working for a company that repaired Apples in Vienna in the 1980s, Roland Borsky's collection has grown to roughly 1,100 computers, he says - far more than the 472 items at Prague's Apple Museum, which says it is the world's biggest private collection of Apple products.

It also gives users a simpler way to make changes to the data, suspend their Apple account or even permanently delete it.

Like a lot of parents, Mike Herrick occasionally sees his 13-year-old daughter getting lost in her smartphone and wonders: Is technology messing with children's brains, even as it enlightens and empowers them in ways that weren't possible when his generation grew up? What sets Herrick apart is his job. The tensions between the pride Herrick takes in his profession and his parental qualms about technology tug particularly hard when he sees his daughter, Lauren, and her friends texting each other instead of talking — when they're sitting 5 feet apart.
