A Cheaper iPhone? Apple is raising the stakes by working on new versions of the iPhone that are aimed at slowing the advance of competing handsets based on Google’s Android software. Of particular worry for the competition is the industry rumour than one version will be cheaper and smaller than the most recent iPhone. That would mean that instead of targeting 25 per cent of the global mobile-phone market, Apple would be going after 100 per cent. Less expensive iPhones will ratchet up pressure on Nokia Oyj, whose handsets are especially popular in Europe and some developing markets. Google’s share of the global smartphone market more than tripled to 32.9 per cent in the fourth quarter, eclipsing Apple’s 16 per cent. Apple will face another challenge as Nokia and Microsoft join forces in smartphone development. A cheaper iPhone would help Apple make deeper inroads in markets such as China and India, where many shoppers opt for lower-priced devices that don’t carry long-term contracts.

Non-OPEC oil producer Bahrain has boosted its oil production to 40,000 barrels per day (bpd) from 32,000 bpd after the country started to overhaul its main oilfield. Abdul-Hussain bin Ali Mirza, head of the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA), said this was the first increase since the late 1970s. Bahrain started to overhaul its main oilfield last year after US-based Occidental Petroleum Corp and the United Arab Emirates’ Mubadala Development Co agreed to invest $15 billion to develop the Bahrain field. Bahrain is targeting output capacity of 100,000 bpd by 2017. Oil is the main source of income for Bahrain’s government, and higher output will help the island kingdom tackle mounting fiscal pressures due to a rising subsidies bill.

TUNISIAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ANCIENT PAST

The Romans founded majestic new cities after having annihilated the menace of Carthage in what is today Tunisia. Ancient cities such as Regia, Sbeitla, Dougga, Utica and Bizerte became centres of Roman commerce, supplying the empire with oil and wheat. This ancient wealth is still visible in Tunisiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacular Roman ruins, reports Alessandro Gandolfi. March 2011

Members of Unusual Suspects warm up backstage. Many of the campers are regulars, with Ed Oates, a founder of Oracle holding the record with nine camps.

“Most of the campers are successful executives or professionals: a founder of the Oracle computer company, a personal-injury lawyer, a McDonald’s franchisee whose father invented the Big Mac, a plastic surgeon, presidents of health care and seafood companies.”

“The newcomer making the biggest splash in the country is contemporary art, which can now be seen throughout the Russian capital in a rapidly expanding set of venues. New edgy hangouts in large industrial complexes, financed by Moscow’s elite, are emerging across the city and pushing the art scene from stuffy and staid to edgy and hip.

Dasha Zhukova opened The Garage in 2009. It was a risky undertaking but the gallery has proven to be a huge success.
