Apple CEO approves ‘Je Suis Charlie' app in record time

A Je Suis Charlie app was approved by Apple within one hour thanks to a personal favor from CEO Tim Cook.

‘Je Suis Charlie', meaning ‘I am Charlie' is a phrase of solidarity that has been cried worldwide since the massacre on Paris magazine Charlie Hebdo last week.

The simple app allows users to highlight their location and show support with a ‘Je Suis Charlie' flag while displaying other flags of support in their area.

Apple notoriously takes their time when it comes to approving apps, but the company reportedly helped bump the Je Suis Charlie app to the front of the line after developers sent a personal email to Tim Cook.

Rather than take the general 10 to 15 days for approval, Tim Cook's assistant responded Sunday within 10 minutes of receiving the email, according to French news agency Nice-Matin. The app is now up and running and available on iTunes.

More than 100,000 users have shared their support and location with the app, with dozens of the flags continue to pop up in the Tri-State.

Passenger falls off cruise ship, gets picked up by another

In an amazing water rescue, a passenger fell overboard from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship only to be picked up by a Disney vessel.

Crew members and passengers of the Disney ‘Magic' spotted the 22-year-old on Thursday off near the coast of Cozumel, Mexico, reports say.

The passenger is hardly visible in a video of the incident posted to YouTube, but the lifeboat can be seen braving the waters to rescue the man.

Officials have not said how the passenger fell off the Royal Caribbean ‘Oasis of the Seas' and released a brief statement saying ““22-year-old male guest from Oasis of the Seas went overboard near Cozumel, Mexico. He was spotted by a crew member from another cruise ship, and picked up. We are grateful for the other ship's assistance.”

The passenger is in stable condition, according to a blog post by Disney Cruise Line founder Scott Sanders.
