Apple’s next iPhone may come in blue, according to a last-minute rumor from well-known device leaker Evan Blass, who posted that tidbit to the internet shortly before the company’s digital event, being held Tuesday at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.

In his post on the app Voice, which pitches itself as an alternative social network to Twitter that authenticates people are real, Blass showed off what appear to be Apple marketing images for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. He said the phones would come in blue, gold, graphite and silver. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

The new devices, which are being called the iPhone 12 by the Apple community though the company hasn’t confirmed their names, are expected to be announced Tuesday alongside a possible new smaller smartphone, called the iPhone 12 Mini, as well as a a possible new HomePod, among other things.

OpenInvest now shows investors exactly how they’re helping the world

  • Andreessen Horowitz-backed startup OpenInvest just released Portfolio Diagnosis, a platform which allows investors to understand the social impact their investments.
  • For example, investors can learn about the amount of carbon emissions they’ve saved and how that translates to trees planted. Or, if they wish, they can ensure they are not investing in companies that support the politically divisive National Rifle Association.
  • OpenInvest was co-founded by two former Bridgewater Associates hedge funders and is backed by Andreessen Horowitz and Y Combinator.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Andreessen Horowitz-backed fintech startup OpenInvest is making it easier for investors to measure the impacts of their social or sustainable investments — down to the number of trees or carbon emissions they’ve saved.

The product, called Portfolio Diagnosis, will allow registered investment advisors — the people who help rich people manage their portfolios — more concretely describe the social impact specific investments will deliver. 

Its release comes at a ripe moment: more investors now want to understand the social implications of their investments, a field known in the industry by the term, environmental, social and governance (ESG). The trend is particularly hot among wealthy millennials — 95% of whom are interested in sustainable investing, according to a 2019 Morgan Stanley survey. 

The company was co-founded in 2015 by two ex-Bridgewater Associates hedge funders Conor Murray and Phil Wei. Murray is now CEO of OpenInvest and Wei is the CTO.

Murray said the grand idea is to build a whole new class of what he called “active-passive” investors who align their portfolios with their values without sacrificing on market performance, he told TechCrunch’s Jonathan Shieber.

From carbon emissions to the NRA

So, for example, Portfolio Diagnosis can show investors how their investments translate into the number of trees planted through reductions in carbon emissions.

Frontier’s Bankruptcy Shows Why ISPs Shouldn’t Be in Charge of the Internet

Let’s state the obvious: Internet in the U.S. sucks. Unless you already have fiber, you’re probably stuck with cable, DSL, or no internet at all because no ISP wants to expand into your area. If you live in a rural area and are lucky to get some form of broadband, you’re probably paying an exorbitant amount for slower than molasses speeds. And most people, about 83.3 million according to a recent report from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), can only access broadband through a single provider. There’s no incentive for major ISPs to actually offer their customers good service. Instead, their focus is on short-term profits—even if that means leaving money on the table and customers on DSL.

Our own Alex Cranz and Brian Kahn recently spoke with Electronic Frontier Foundation special adviser Cory Doctorow about how ISPs continue to wreck their own internet service, overcharge customers, shut out competition, and leave a significant chunk of urban and rural America pleading for more affordable and better broadband. (You can listen to this first episode of the System Reboot podcast here.) The podcast is a nice overview of the problems with ISPs, but I wanted to dig a bit further into one key element of Doctorow’s focus in the episode: The case of Frontier’s bankruptcy. It’s especially illuminating when it comes to tracing the steps of how ISPs got this monopolistic power over consumers and continue to wield it to absolute ill effects.
