‘Indifference’: Members of the jury that sent Aaron Hernandez to prison for the rest of his life used that word a lot when they sat down with Anderson Cooper last night to talk about the trial. They used it when talking about how Hernandez simply walked away when his friend — murder victim Odin Lloyd — was shot and killed. They used it in expressing their surprise that Hernandez and his two friends were sunbathing at a pool hours after the murder. That perceived indifference is part of what led them to look beyond Hernandez’s football fame and fortune and convict him of first-degree murder. Lesa Strachan, the jury foreperson, said the months-long trial and deliberations — 35 hours reviewing 130 witness statements and 400 pieces of evidence — took an “incredibly emotional toll.
Lawsuit filed: The woman who accused former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of rape is taking him to court. Erica Kinsman’s lawsuit alleges sexual battery and false imprisonment in a December 2012 incident in which Kinsman says Winston raped her after a night of drinking.

Apple has faced supply shortages in the past, typically when it launched a completely redesigned model of an iPhone or an iPad.
