It's been one week since we were announcing that Donald Trump had won the US election, making him the President-elect. However, has Trump stepped up to the plate and done his duty? To find out, I did some research to find out what he's been up to in the last seven days:
- Trump met with Obama to talk about the transition of power from one to the other. Even though it was reported to be a friendly, productive meeting, the photos showed a very awkward-looking Trump and an embarrassed-looking Obama.
- It was announced that 4,000 jobs will be have to be filled by January 20th, as Trump now needs his own administration workers, which is good news.
- Trump has invited Theresa May to visit him as soon as possible after he takes office. This could be either to establish a friendship or to talk about Brexit.
- Protests and riots have broken out every single night since the election result. (Play Audio)

It's no mystery that Apple is one the biggest companies in the world with many loyal fans and followers at their disposal. However, Apple may've gone too far with their latest product.
Yesterday, they announced that they'll soon be selling a book that documents all of their products from the last 20 years. The catch is, though, there are no words; only photos. On top of that, the book will cost you $300.
Jonathan Ive, who's the Chief Design Officer, said that the book is to celebrate the life of Steve Job, but others who learned the news about the book believe that Apple are doing it for the money.
Q) Is Apple being arrogant with this product.

A few weeks ago, it was announced that Snapchat will soon start selling glasses that allow you to record parts of your life with the lenses. Well, a few days ago, these glasses were released and sold in vending machines, which were scattered around California and Oklahoma.
So far, they've had good reviews. They easily connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. There's a button the top-left, which allows you to take photos and videos, which are then stored on your phone. You can then share those moments on Snapchat. The downside is that they've already sold out and are now selling for $5,000 online.

In the past, Amazon has come under fire for not paying taxes. Now, they're back in the news for the unbelievably high expectations they place on their delivery drivers.
An undercover BBC reporter went to work for them and found that workers are:
- Working over 11 hours per shift, which is illegal in the UK.
- Told to pee in a bottle and poop in a bag, so that they could save time.
- Expected to deliver up to 200 parcels a day.
- Told that they can break the speed limit because police won't pull over a delivery driver.
