Mon, 25 Mar 2019 13:54:37 -0400

Israel Launches Aerial Offensive on Gaza After Rocket AttackThe scandal-tarred Netanyahu, who is making a bid for a fifth term in the April 9 vote, cut short a trip to the U.S., where he celebrated President Donald Trump’s recognition of Israeli control of the Golan Heights and vowed a tough response to Gaza’s militant Hamas leaders. “This was a criminal attack on the state of Israel, and we will respond forcefully,” the prime minister said in a video provided by his office before the airstrikes began. It wasn’t clear how broad a military operation Israel planned on the eve of its elections or how the offensive would affect Netanyahu’s electoral prospects.

Pete Buttigieg: 2020 Democratic candidate surges to third place in new pollPresidential candidate behind Joe Biden and Bernie SandersPete Buttigieg for president? Long-shot stands out in crowded field South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters. Photograph: Richard Shiro/AP Pete Buttigieg has surged to third place in a new poll of Democratic presidential candidates, ahead of Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Beto’Rourke. The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, won the backing of 11% of likely Iowa Democratic caucus voters in an Emerson poll released on Sunday. Joe Biden had 25% support, with Bernie Sanders in second place with 24%. But the performance of Buttigieg, who has impressed in a series of TV appearances, is likely to serve as a warning to his better-known rivals. Buttigieg had 0% support in Emerson’s January poll, which was conducted just after he formed an exploratory committee. He has not yet formally declared he is running to take on Donald Trump next year but he has been widely praised for his performance in a CNN town hall and in high-profile interviews. He has met the 65,000-donor threshold that qualifies him to take part in the Democratic debates. Harris, a senator from California, had 10% support in the Emerson poll – which had a margin error of +/- 6.2% – while Warren of Massachusetts was in fourth place with 9%. Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman from Texas who has captured the attention of the public and the media with a combination of relentless charm and non-committal policy positions, was backed by 5% of likely voters. Now this'll get people talking...new Emerson poll of Iowa:• Biden - 25%• Sanders - 24%• Buttigieg - 11%• Harris - 10%• Warren - 9%...https://t.co/o4WHsyetvl— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) March 24, 2019 Buttigieg supports the Green New Deal proposal, a series of climate change reforms backed by progressive Democrats, and has said he is in favor of single-payer healthcare, an issue fast becoming a litmus test for Democratic candidates. Were he elected, Buttigieg would be the first openly gay president. In South Carolina on Saturday, he told voters his marriage existed “by the grace of a single vote on the US supreme court”, and said it had brought him closer to God.

Galaxy S10 5G could hit unprecedented speeds of up to 4 Gbps
Mon, 25 Mar 2019 11:08:30 -0400

Galaxy S10 5G could hit unprecedented speeds of up to 4 GbpsThe 5G era is nearly upon us, and Samsung will help lead the charge into the future with the Galaxy S10 5G on April 5th. It will be a few months before most carriers take full advantage of the technology, but based on early tests, it'll be worth the wait. As big of a leap as 4G LTE was over 3G, 5G is a new beast altogether.According to a recent report in The Korea Herald, South Korean mobile carrier SK Telecom has "completed key tests" of its 5G network using the Galaxy S10 5G ahead of the phone's launch next Friday. Over the past two months, SKT has tested interoperability on its network, interface, frequency, and covered at least one hundred scenarios to make sure that Samsung's 5G flagship will be totally compatible and running at full speed on day one.That's all well and good, but we haven't even gotten to the really impressive news yet: Using its dual connectivity technology, which combines 5G and 4G LTE networks, SKT was able to reach speeds of up to 2.65 Gbps. The carrier claims that this is 80% faster than the speeds that users will see on standard 5G networks. As the Herald points out, a connection that fast would make it possible to download a 2GB movie in about six seconds.But that's not all. As SamMobile reports, SKT announced that it has successfully tested Triple Aggregation on the S10 5G as well, which utilizes 5G, LTE and Wi-Fi all at once. Triple Aggregation has been verified for use by consumer on the S10 5G, and they could see speeds of up to 4 Gbps using this method.SKT says that its customers can expect speeds of up to 2.6 Gbps in the early stages of the 5G rollout, but that it will increase to 2.7 Gbps before the end of the first half of 2019. Meanwhile, US carriers like Verizon won't be far behind with their own 5G launches, but only select markets will have access to the network at first.

Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapers
Mon, 25 Mar 2019 13:17:11 -0400

Apple News+ is a $9.99 subscription service for magazines and newspapersApple's "show time" event kicked off at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET today, and Tim Cook has taken the stage. While we are excited to see what Apple has in store for the world of streaming entertainment, the first announcement today is about Apple News. As expected, Apple is making use of its acquisition of Texture's magazine subscription service and add magazines to its new service, which it has dubbed Apple News+. Over 300 magazines will be featured in Apple News+, such as National Geographic, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair, and more. In addition to magazines, the service will also feature some of the world's top newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal. Apple News+ will cost $9.99/month. All of the premium content can be found in the new News+ tab, which lives at the bottom of the Apple News app. You can save your favorite magazines as well, so that you won't ever miss a new issue. Apple also showed off covers with moving images, and demonstrated how the magazines have been successfully ported to both the small screen of the iPhone and the larger display of the iPad. Apple also announced that it will not share demographic or subscriber information with publishers, which explains why some major names didn't make the cut. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ As Apple explained during its keynote, it would cost more than $8,000 to subscribes every magazine and newspaper in Apple News+ separately. This is "the only place" where you can pay for access to all of them, plus, you can share your subscription with your family, so you won't all have to pay for your own accounts. And the first month is free. Apple News+ will be available in the US and Canada first, and reach Australia and the UK in the fall. If you want to try out Apple News+, you'll be able to do so later today after an iOS update rolls out.

The 5 most important announcements from Apple’s big event
Mon, 25 Mar 2019 14:47:36 -0400

The 5 most important announcements from Apple’s big eventFor Apple fans, today's big "It's Show Time" event wasn't exactly the most hotly anticipated Apple press conference in recent history. In fact, it might not even crack the top 10. But for Apple, today's event carries a tremendous amount of weight. For the past decade, Apple has made the lion's share of its money selling hardware products. Specifically, the iPhone line and its sky-high profit margins are the reason Apple is the most profitable consumer electronics company in history. But as we've seen in recent years, iPhone growth simply isn't sustainable — big smartphone markets are already saturated and people are keeping their phones longer than ever because it's so expensive to upgrade these days. That's a big part of the reason that Apple is turning to services as the company explores new ways to foster growth. Today we got our first look at the new services Apple hopes will carry the company's media efforts into the future. We can't say anything Apple announced during Monday's press conference came as much of a surprise considering all of the leaks and reports from the past few weeks. That said, we finally know all of the particulars regarding Apple's upcoming new streaming entertainment and news services, and there's plenty to unpack. In this post, however, we'll unpack it all as we cover the five most important announcements from the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino, California on Monday. Apple News+Apple on Monday announced a huge revamp to the Apple News product. What was once merely a news aggregator app is now evolving into a one-stop shop for all sorts of journalism called Apple News+. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im5c5WR9vMQ First, Apple is adding magazines and digital subscriptions to Apple News. Time, Vogue, People, National Geographic, Popular Science, Billboard, The New Yorker, Sports Illustrated, Fortune, and New York Magazine are just some of the popular magazines that will be featured in the new Apple News+ hub. New issues of subscribed magazines and newspapers are downloaded automatically in the background, and more than 300 magazines will be included in the service at launch, as well as newspapers like The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times. Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month, which includes unlimited content sources and family sharing. The new service is available beginning immediately. Apple CardApple's second big announcement during today's show is a brand new service called Apple Card, which is backed by Goldman Sachs and Mastercard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAZiE9NtRfs The company says it has completely rethought the credit card with its new Apple Card product. It's a credit card, but you can sign up in the Wallet app on your iPhone and get your card virtually right away. Balance information and payment details are all accessible in the Wallet app, and Apple even provides Apple Card customer support through the Messages app. Apple Card uses machine learning and Apple Maps to translate conventional vendor transaction details to actual business names that are more recognizable. There are a number of tools included as well that are aimed at helping users track their spending. As for rewards, Apple has introduced a new "Daily Cash" feature that gives users cash back on a daily basis. Money is added to an Apple Cash card in the wallet app automatically, and the cash back rate is 2% for all purchases except for purchases made from Apple, which earn 3% cash back. Apple Card in the Wallet app offers several tools designed to reduce the amount of interest you pay, such as a real cost calculator and multiple payments per month. There are also no fees with the Apple Card, including no late fees and no over limit fees. Each Apple Card customer will also get a physical titanium card for locations where Apple Pay isn't accepted. Purchases made with the physical card only get 1% cash back. The Apple Card will launch in the US sometime this summer. Apple ArcadeRumors suggested Apple would be announcing a new gaming service during its event on Monday, and indeed it did. The new service is called Apple Arcade, and it's a new way to deliver video games to users. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95FuVib8mcY Apple Arcade offers financial backing to studios for the development of games that will be exclusive to Apple Arcade, and they'll be playable on mobile devices, computers, and on Apple TV. Apple Arcade subscriptions offer unlimited access to all games in the library, and it will launch with more than 100 titles available from day one. A new Arcade tab in the App Store will provide access to Apple Arcade, and all games will work on iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers, as well as on the Apple TV. No games will be permitted to display any ads, and no games will be allowed to include in-app purchases. Apple Arcade will launch in more than 150 countries this fall, and pricing for the subscription hasn't yet been announced. Apple TV ChannelsThe biggest news from today's press conference is a new a la carte TV subscription service that lets you pay only for the channels you want to watch. Apple TV Channels will live inside the Apple TV app, and users only pay for the channels to which they would like to subscribe. All content is also available on demand, of course, and the redesigned Apple TV app will also be home to streaming TV services from cable providers and similar offerings like PlayStation Vue. The redesigned Apple TV app will also provide live scores from sporting events, and it'll be a portal for movies and TV shows you purchase in iTunes. A unified "Up Next" section in the app shows new episodes of all your favorite TV shows as they become available, to ensure you never miss a show. Hulu and Prime Video content is also available through the new Apple TV app. It's designed as a one-stop shop for all of the streaming entertainment you watch. The new Apple TV app will available on Apple TV boxes, iPad, and iPhone beginning in May, and it'll come as part of an iOS update. It'll also be made available on macOS beginning this fall, and there will be a version made available for smart TVs (including Samsung, Sony, and Vizio), Roku devices, and Fire TV devices. Apple TV+In addition to the new Apple TV Channels product, Apple finally announced its original programming initiative. Dubbed Apple TV+, Apple is dumping some serious cash into original shows and movies created by and starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Brie Larson, Bill Murray, Steven Spielberg, J. J. Abrams, Octavia Spencer, Steve Carell, M. Night Shyamalan, Jennifer Aniston, Ron Howard, and Reese Witherspoon are just some of the big names involved with projects that are currently in production. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrdbT4hpwBk Steven Spielberg will be rebooting Amazing Stories for Apple TV+, an anthology series from the mid 1980s. Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon will star in The Morning Show, a show that analyzes the inner workings of a fictitious morning new show. Jason Momoa will star in a new show called See, a show about a world where only a few million survivors lived through a cataclysmic event, and they were all blind. Kumail Nanjiani is making a series called Little America, a collection of immigrant stories in the United States based on true events. J. J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles are joining to create a series called Romantic Voice, a show about a young woman trying to  make it in the New York music scene. There's also a new preschool show about using coding (yes, coding!) to solve problems. It's called Helpsters and it features characters from Sesame Street. There's also one more personality you may have heard of who's on board to create two documentaries and a new Book Club interview series for Apple TV+: Oprah. Apple TV+ will be available in the new Apple TV app beginning this fall. It will be an ad-free subscription service, but pricing hasn't yet been announced.

Donald Trump declares 'complete exoneration' as Robert Mueller finds no collusion with Russia
Sun, 24 Mar 2019 17:20:24 -0400

Donald Trump declares 'complete exoneration' as Robert Mueller finds no collusion with RussiaDonald Trump and his aides did not collude with Russia in the 2016 election campaign, special counsel Robert Mueller concluded in his report, according to a summary from the US attorney general.  Mr Mueller also did not find that Mr Trump obstructed justice in his alleged attempts to thwart the investigation, instead choosing not to reach a conclusion and simply presenting the evidence.  The US attorney general and his deputy - two Trump appointees - then decided there was not enough proof to charge the US president with obstruction of justice.  Mr Mueller also decided to recommend no further indictments and has no sealed indictments waiting to be made public, meaning he will not bring any more charges now his probe is complete. The findings amount to a major victory for Mr Trump after 22 months of Mr Mueller’s investigation and triggered celebration from the White House and leading Republicans.  No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2019 In his first reaction Mr Trump said: "It's complete exoneration. No collusion, no obstruction." The president said it was "a shame" that the country and his presidency had to go through the investigation and called it an "illegal take down that failed".  Mr Trump also appeared to call for an investigation into the Mueller probe itself and how it began.  Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said: “The findings of the Department of Justice are a total and complete exoneration of the President of the United States.” Robert Mueller spent 22 months investigation allegations of collusion between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia Credit:  Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images North America Lindsey Graham, the Republican senator close to Mr Trump, tweeted: “Good day for the rule of law. Great day for President Trump and his team.  “No collusion and no obstruction. The cloud hanging over President Trump has been removed by this report.” However Democrats are demanding that Mr Mueller’s full confidential report be published and that all the underlying documents be handed to Congress so they can be reviewed. The topline findings from Mr Mueller’s report were contained in a four-page summary written by William Barr, the US attorney general.  The summary was submitted to senior congressmen and released to the public on Sunday afternoon, giving the first insight into what Mr Mueller had concluded.  Democrats have demanded that William Barr, the US attorney general, release the report in full Credit: Alex Wroblewski/Bloomberg In the summary, Mr Mueller is quoted saying: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." Elsewhere Mr Mueller is quoted saying: "The evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference". That finding was effectively a victory for the US president, who has been saying constantly during the two years since he entered the White House that there had been “no collusion”.  As well as clearing Mr Trump and his campaign of conspiring with the Kremlin, Mr Mueller’s report also dealt with the allegations that the US president had obstructed justice by hampering the investigation.  Mr Barr's four-page summary of the Mueller report Credit: Reuters Mr Mueller did not reach a decision on whether Mr Trump had obstructed justice - meaning it was not a total victory for the president - instead deciding not to come to a conclusion. Mr Barr’s summary cites Mr Mueller referencing “difficult issues” of law and fact - a likely nod to Department of Justice guidelines that say a sitting president cannot be indicted.  The summary of the report quotes Mr Mueller saying of obstruction of justice: “While this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him". Given Mr Mueller decided not to make a decision on obstruction of justice but instead just hand over evidence, the Justice Department's leaders was left to made a determination. Mr Barr and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, decided there was not enough evidence to conclude that Mr Trump had acted with “corrupt intent”, and therefore decided he had not obstructed justice.  The summary did make passing reference to evidence of potential obstruction of justice by Mr Trump that has not yet featured in public reporting and which Mr Mueller looked at, but gave no more details. Congratulations ⁦@POTUS⁩ ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election. They’ll never get you because they’ll never “get” you. MuellerReportNoCollusionNoObstructionWent2MichiganNotMoscowpic.twitter.com/gFqLLLb1fS— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) March 24, 2019 The findings left the president and his allies delighted.  Mr Trump said: “It was a complete and total exoneration.  It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it's a shame that your president has had to go through this.” The president also hinted that he wants somebody - possibly Republicans in Congress - to investigate the Mueller probe itself, which he believes should never have been created.  “This was an illegal take down that failed.  And hopefully, somebody is going to be looking at the other side,” Mr Trump said.  Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Mr Trump, said in a public message to the president: “Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election.” Democrats found themselves in a politically uncomfortable position, being asked during TV interviews whether they agreed there was no collusion and whether they trusted Mr Mueller - a man whose integrity they had repeatedly trumpeted in public.  Nancy Pelosi, left, and Chuck Schumer - the most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate Credit: Aaron P. Bernstein/Getty Images Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the two most senior Democrats in the House of Representatives and Senate respectively, demanded the full report be published.  “Attorney general Barr’s letter raises as many questions as it answers,” the pair said in a joint statement.  “The fact that special counsel Mueller’s report does not exonerate the president on a charge as serious as obstruction of justice demonstrates how urgent it is that the full report and underlying documentation be made public without any further delay.   “Given Mr Barr’s public record of bias against the special counsel’s inquiry, he is not a neutral observer and is not in a position to make objective determinations about the report.” Mr Barr said in his summary letter that he planned to release parts of Mr Mueller’s report, but it remains to be seen how much will be made public.  Sign up for your essential, twice-daily briefing from The Telegraph with our free Front Page newsletter.

Qlearly catapults Chrome bookmarks and tabs into the future
Mon, 25 Mar 2019 10:22:25 -0400

Qlearly catapults Chrome bookmarks and tabs into the futureAs of February of this year, Google's Chrome desktop web browser owned a remarkable 65% of the global browser market, according to market research firm NetApplications. Microsoft's Internet Explorer is still the second most popular browser in the world, but it's not even close -- IE held just 10.23% of the market as of last month, and no other web browser even managed a double-digit market share. Long story short, Chrome is far and away the king of web browsers right now. Of course, just because Chrome is popular doesn't make it perfect, which is why Google hosts a thriving Chrome Web Store that's packed full of great extensions.Some Chrome extensions are designed to enhance specific websites. For example, there are a ton of great Netflix tweaks in the Chrome Web Store that make everyone's favorite source of streaming entertainment even better. But there are other extensions in there that are designed to enhance Chrome itself, and we recently came across a new one that you've got to check out.Qlearly is a very nifty Chrome extension created by Guillaume Bardet. In a nutshell, it's designed to modernize Chrome's bookmark and tab features by replacing their conventional interfaces with novel new ones. In place of the conventional bookmark menu, Qlearly uses "boards" that group bookmarks into columns so your favorite sites are always easy to find. Adding new bookmarks is a breeze as well, and there's a great search function so that people with tons of bookmarks can always find sites easily.You'll find Qlearly's full description from the Chrome Web Store below, followed by a download link for the Chrome extension. There's also a beta version of Qlearly available for Firefox, and you can download it right here.> Organize your favorite websites by columns and boards. Every time you open a new tab, your board will load within a second. > A modern bookmarks and tabs manager. ✨> > Organize your favorite websites using boards and columns.
