Apple to replace faulty USB-C cables
New York : US tech giant Apple has announced a worldwide replacement programme for the USB-C cable that it shipped between April and June, 2015.
 
The cable was released with the 12-inch Retina Macbook last year, and according to Apple, it is possible for the cable to fail without warning due to flaw in the design.
 
"As a result, your MacBook may not charge or only charge intermittently when it's connected to a power adapter with an affected cable," iClarified quoted Apple's statement as saying on Saturday.
 
The buyers of these cables may get a new cable if they gave Apple their mailing address when registering for MacBook.
 
Others can contact authorised Apple service provider, or contact Apple customer support.
 
If any user has bought a new one, he/she is eligible for a refund.

India Inc urges new technology to transform manufacturing
Mumbai : Indian industry leaders on Sunday stressed the need to bring in new technology into the country's manufacturing, rather than depend solely on cheap labour, to make the Make In India initiative a success.
 
"There will be migration of large-scale low cost factories from China to India. But that shouldn't be the only manufacturing India does," Mahindra & Mahindra chairman Anand Mahindra said at the CNN Asia Business Forum held as part of the ongoing Make India India Week here.
 
"Is there going to be a disruption in the way we 'Make in India'. Manufacturing should be democratised and decentralised," he said.
 
"India has a track record of seting up world class cement, textile factories and oil refineries. We have to take India to the next level," said Kumar Mangalam Birla, chairman of the Aditya Birla Group.
 
"New skills such as use of algorithm remote sensing must be used in manufacturing to remain constantly contemporary," he said.
 
"We as a country are highly innovative. It is part of our DNA," added Birla.
 
Describing India as a "highly innovative place," American multinational General Electric's South Asia chief executive, Banmali Agrawala, said: "We're pressing the pedal on getting digital."
