Ohio StandardOhio Standard – Setting the standard for News coverage in Ohio
Every minute of every day our news editors canvass the issues, and stories making the news to provide our readers with a broad and in-depth coverage of what's happening in the world.
Our first priority is the state. We specialise in Ohio news. From Cleveland to Cincinatti, we're on the lookout day and night to keep track of issues making the news. We also strive to keep abreast of national news.
Breaking stories out of the continental United States usually break first on the Ohio Standard. Neighbouring states and key cities too often feature on our news pages.
We also provide a whole lot of other content you'd expect from any newspaper including international sports coverage and local Ohio weather forecasts.
We also provide readers with an opportunity to engage in newsmaking by voting on major stories in the news, and following how other readers are viewing the issues. Our news polls are regularly updated, and attract thousands of voters over each week they're conducted.
Our business writers too work hard to keep you abreast of what's happening in the markets, not only in the U.S. but across the globe. We work around the clock to post stories from major financial centers like Tokyo, Paris, London, and of course New York, where we have extensive coverage of the major indices, particularly the Dow Jones, Nasdaq, S&P and Russell 2000.
A resident of Ohio Brandon Ashmore has won the jackpot prize of 10000 dollars by downloading Apple's 50 billionth application.
Apple had earlier announced that it had come close to 50 billion iPhone and iPad app downloads since the firm's launch in 2008 and declared 10000 dollars worth gift card for the person who reaches the milestone, ABC News reports.
According to the report, Apple had started off with its app store in 2008 with 500 apps, which has now reached 8,50,000 iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch apps, with more than 350,00 iPad specific apps.
While Apple celebrated the 10th anniversary of iTunes earlier this month, Google's android store will soon be reaching the target of 48 billion android downloads from its play store.
The report said that Google has also announced a host of new features and services for app developers, including ways to build apps that take advantage of the phones' sensors and methods for translating apps into other languages.
Google All Access Play Music service and its new Hangouts Messaging app have come up as its new consumer products which will possibly see more downloads happening in the near future, the report added. (ANI)
