    Apple to simplify app-creation process across devices: report

    Apple Inc. is reportedly planning to make it easier for developers to create apps that work across all Apple devices, according to Bloomberg. Apple shares are down 0.4% in Wednesday trading.

Microsoft Corp. has universal apps aimed at PCs and Xbox devices, while Alphabet Inc.'s Google has made Android apps available on Chromebook computers.

    Three women accuse Russell Simmons of rape: report

    Music-industry legend Russell Simmons has been accused of rape by three women in a report released Wednesday afternoon. Four women spoke on the record to The New York Times about violent sexual experiences dating back to the late 1980s involving the hip-hop mogul, who founded the seminal Def Jam Records label. Former Def Jam A&R executive Drew Dixon, performer Tina Baker and former music journalist Toni Sallie levied the most serious accusations, of forcible rape. Simmons, who stepped down from the helm of the businesses he still ran in November after earlier reports of sexual misconduct, denied the rape allegations in a statement to the Times. "I vehemently deny all these allegations," he said. "These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual." Simmons sold his stake in Def Jam to Universal Music Group in 1999, but has since founded other businesses in fashion and media.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
