Watch: Ellen DeGeneres apologizes after toxic workplace allegations

Sept. 21 (UPI) — Ellen DeGeneres issued a public apology while addressing allegations that The Ellen DeGeneres Show was a toxic workplace.

The 62-year-old television personality said in a monologue during the Season 18 premiere Monday that the show is “starting a new chapter” in the wake of the reports.

“As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show, and then there was an investigation. I learned that things happened here that never should have happened,” DeGeneres said.

“I take that very seriously, and I wanna say I am so sorry to the people who were affected,” she added. “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show.”

DeGeneres said The Ellen DeGeneres Show has made “the necessary changes” after weeks

Apple Watch Series 6 First Impressions

Yes, the Apple Watch Series 6 and SE are official, and we can now say we’ve been wearing the Series 6, the top-of-the-line smartwatch from Apple, for about a day. It’s not time for our full review, but here are our first impressions of the Apple Watch Series 6.

From the moment Apple showed off Series 6, we got a taste for a familiar design that spices things up in the color department. Like the Series 5 and Series 4 before that, the Series 6 features a display that’s stretched to the edges with a familiar rounded square watch design.

The new Blue Aluminum shade is quite simply stunning and might end up being a little underrated. Like Midnight Green on the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, it’s a bit darker by default, but light (direct or indirect) gives it a bit of a shimmer. Subdued but stylish

Apple Watch Is a Private Road

This article is part of the On Tech newsletter. You can sign up here to receive it weekdays.

If you’re reading this right now on your iPhone or on a Windows laptop, that’s good for Apple and Microsoft.

It’s also good for Amazon, Zoom, Candy Crush and this newsletter, which can reach you because smartphones, tablets and personal computers created by others gave them a route to billions.

Think about the last quarter-century of computers and the internet like a highway. The companies that made gadgets and software systems controlled the roads, and cars made by other companies drove (with some restrictions) on those roads. Computer devices would be meh if we couldn’t have access to a diversity of apps, websites and software — and vice versa.

But newer technologies for interacting online — smart watches like the Apple Watch, voice activated speakers, internet-connected televisions and robot-piloted cars — mostly

Everything Apple Announced: Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE, iPad Air, Fitness+

Apple also announced a subscription service for streamed workouts that seems aimed squarely at taking on Peloton and other companies capitalizing on the home fitness trend.

Tell us what you think about these new products in the comments below. (Register here for an account.)

The new Fitness+ service offers video streams of workouts in an array of categories like yoga, cycling, strength training, high-intensity interval training, and dance. You can follow along with videos on an iPhone or TV. Data gleaned from an Apple Watch will display on screen in real time so customers can track calories burned and other metrics. All that data then syncs to Apple’s existing fitness app for later tracking. If paired with a Watch, on-screen instructions will also show up on your wrist. So, if a trainer reminds you to check heart rate, those numbers will get larger on the Watch so they’re easier to

Recycling and trading websites specialise in buying secondhand handsets, but how much you’ll get will vary depending on which one you use and the condition of your tech.

Your gadget will also have to pass an inspection by experts, which could see your original offer drop.

Done right, you could be like IT consultant Andrew Jacob who made £2,500 in a year by flogging his old phones, tablets and CDs on trading in sites.
