A longtime Rice University piano instructor is in jail after police alleged he fondled a young girl who came to his home for a piano lesson, which he denied. Daiusz Pawlas, 50, has been charged with indecency with a child. The student's mother told police she stepped out of the room to make a phone call during her young daughter's piano lesson at his west Houston home, according to the criminal complaint filed this week. He had taught the girl for about three years.

How Apple's iPhone 7 will benefit from the Samsung Galaxy recall
A massive Samsung recall could lead to record purchases for the iPhone 7. CLEVELAND, Ohio - All indications are that Apple's new iPhone 7, which will be unveiled today, may be one of the more underwhelming releases in the product's history. But the company may still get a boost in sales thanks to its biggest competitor. Samsung had to recall 2.5 million Galaxy Note 7 smartphones due to a faulty battery that may catch fire and explode. The news was a PR nightmare for Samsung, but a timely development for Apple. Despite the new iPhone 7 reportedly coming with just a dual lens camera, faster processor and no headphone jack, it may be the most in-demand iPhone ever, especially for angry Samsung consumers. That's good news for Apple, after a spring of slow sales for the iPhone 6. While industry analysts have been down on the new iPhone and Apple's stock in general, others have suggested fans skipping out on recent iPhone models are poised to purchase the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. Such developments should carry Apple into 2017, which is the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Rumors suggest the iPhone 8 (or whatever it's called) will feature major upgrades, including an all-glass casing and touch screen home button among other things.
