IT glitches cost RBS £56m, Apple hoping to take bites out of Spotify and McDonald’s fight back.
20th November 2014

RBS computing glitches have cost them £56million as the bank are fined for their antiquated systems which failed last summer, leaving many unable to access their money both online and at cash machines. The new chief executive of RBS, Ross McEwan has vowed to spend £700million on improving their systems. 

Apple are pushing the new Beats app on their iPhones which is expected to rival Spotify.  It will sync with iTunes, which will likely give the Beats service a huge boost in users. 

McDonald’s had 9 branches closed recently for “hygiene” reasons, although it looks like their closure may be linked to nationwide bans on western foods. However, their flagship store in the centre of Moscow has re-opened, marking what is expected to be the start of a comeback for the global fast-food giant.
