LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NetworkWire — InvestorBrandNetwork  (“IBN”), a multifaceted communications organization engaged in connecting public companies to the investment community, is pleased to announce the release of the latest episode of  The Stock2Me Podcast  as part of its sustained effort to provide specialized content distribution via widespread syndication channels.

The Stock2Me Podcast features a fascinating array of companies and individuals, many of whom are actively revolutionizing age-old business practices within their respective markets. Stock2Me’s latest podcast features Chris Lahiji, president of LD Micro, and Christopher Miglino, CEO and founder of SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX).

The two executives joined the show to discuss the recent acquisition of LD Micro, a leading data and event company serving the small and micro-cap space, by SRAX, a financial technology company that unlocks data and insights for publicly traded companies through its SaaS platform, Sequire. SRAX announced the closing of the acquisition on Sept. 16, 2020, noting that LD Micro will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of SRAX and will continue to employ Lahiji, its founder, as its president.

“If you look at what we’ve built at LD, we’ve had a lot of interest over the last 11 or 12 years in getting acquired, but the reality was that every single organization wanted to use the community that we had built for the wrong purposes,” Lahiji stated in the interview. “Christopher Miglino was the only guy who came to me and essentially asked the right questions and found a way of taking what we had built since 2002 and enhancing it. … With SRAX, I have the ability to increase my reach by more than 100-fold without having to sacrifice anything that has been built prior to [the acquisition]. The dynamics that they bring to the table

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Apple’s iPhones just got a lot faster. During its virtual event Tuesday, the company unveiled its iPhone 12 lineup — and all four new devices come with 5G, including the ultra-fast millimeter wave version. The company’s 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Max pack in some of the biggest advances Apple has made in years. 

The two middle phones go on sale next week (preorders begin this Friday), while the Mini and Max arrive in mid-November. The starting prices range from $699 for the Mini — making it one of the cheapest premium 5G phones on the market — to $1,099 for the Max. All international versions of the iPhone come with 5G, but only the US versions have mmWave (Verizon has been the technology’s main proponent). 

The entire iPhone 12 lineup features a new design, reminiscent of Apple’s iPad Pro tablets. The flatter sides give the iPhones a new feel for the first time in three years. All models come with a new, ultra-strong, Corning-designed front cover display, dubbed “ceramic shield.”  It’s “tougher than any smartphone glass,” Apple said, and is four times less likely to crack if you drop it. The new phones come with Apple’s updated A14 Bionic, the same chip that’s in the new iPad Air. They also get bumps in their camera capabilities

Apple has nixed the free EarPods and power
