In the past week or so, we have been inundated with numerous tips about an apparent issue with Apple’s iWork productivity suite running on the iPhone 5s.
Folks have been emailing us about their top-end iPhone abruptly restarting each time they’d fired up Apple’s Pages, Numbers or Keynote app.
Digging deeper, the problem raises its ugly head not just with iWork but some third-party apps as well. I’m just scatter-shooting here, but this could be due to the iPhone 5s’s A7 chip and the transition to 64-bit computing.
Sure enough, a quick hop over to Apple’s support forums revealed a thread with similar complaints where the iPhone 5s goes into a blue screen prior to respringing - hence the Blue Screen of Death moniker.
As this issue continues to persists, I though you should know about how it manifests itself and tell you about a band-aid solution. Apple of course is cleverly keeping mum on the matter and is yet to respond with a software fix for the glitch. Read on…(…)

Apple has hired Jay Sartori, the current assistant general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, to manage the sports and entertainment section of the App Store, reports SportsNet (via MG Siegler).
Sartori is taking over as the tech titan’s manager of the App Store’s sports and entertainment category, a departure from the arbitration, contract and collective bargaining agreement interpretation work he handled for the Blue Jays.
He’s been in the position since September, 2010, when he was lured over from the Washington Nationals after a season as director of baseball operations there. Before that he worked for Major League Baseball’s labour department, helping negotiate the 2006 CBA.
While it is unclear exactly what job duties Sartori will be expected to take on, Apple has always preferred for its App Store and iTunes Store selections to have a human touch, suggesting that part of his role will perhaps involve overseeing and improving the content selections featured in the Sports section of the App Store.
Apple’s App Store staff are responsible for hand selecting apps that are featured in a multitude of App Store categories, including Staff Favorites and Editor’s Choice. Currently, the Sports section of the App Store features “Essentials” and “Fantasy Football Apps”, also highlighting a number of individual apps such as Yahoo! Sports, ESPN College Football, and MLB.com At Bat.
Sartori is expected to leave his current position with the Toronto Blue Jays in October.
