OKC firefighter dies after medical episode; iphone performance at center of suit


The Oklahoma City Fire Department is mourning the loss of one of its own. Lt. Jeffrey White died after experiencing what the department called a medical "episode". 

An Oklahoma City firefighter died while on duty Tuesday afternoon.

Lt. Jeffrey S. White died from complications of a medical condition. White was at Fire Station 36, 17700 SE 104, when the episode began. He died at a local hospital.

White was a member of the honor guard and critical incident stress management team. He was also a hazardous materials technician, a rescue diver, and a peer fitness trainer, according to a news release.

"He's one of our brothers, and when you lose one of your family members, it's a very difficult time, especially during this time of year," Fire Chief Richard Kelley said Wednesday.

Services are pending.

Apple sued over iPhone software updates

If your iPhone is running slower than it did a year or two ago, it's probably because Apple is throttling its performance. The company has said it limits CPU performance in phones and tablets with older batteries in an effort to maintain battery life. Others say it's because they want you to buy a new phone. 

Phone owners from several states have filed at least nine class-action lawsuits against Apple Inc. for not disclosing sooner that its software updates deliberately slowed down older-model phones so batteries would last longer.

The lawsuits — filed in U.S. district courts in California, New York and Illinois — allege that Apple’s silence led the iPhone owners to wrongly conclude that they had to buy newer, pricier iPhones instead of simply replacing the battery.
