Post a comment Apple iPhone XS Mobile Phones The iPhone 11 design is coming into focus Whether you’re a fan of the square camera bump or not, this is shaping up to be the final design for the 2019 iPhone lineup. Alleged CAD renders of the iPhone XS, XR and XS Max sequels appeared on tech leaks site Slashleaks this week. The new images show pretty the same iPhone 11 design we’ve been hearing about for nearly six months now, since long time leaker Steven Hemmerstoffer (@Onleaks on twitter) published the first images of the three-lens camera square back in January. All three phones have the same square, but in the case of the XR sequel the Slashleaks renders show it housing only two lenses. They also show a traditional lightning port on the bottom, suggesting Apple won’t make the leap to USB-C on the iPhone this year as earlier rumors had suggested.Alleged iPhone XI CAD renders from Slashleaks. Slashleaks And even though we’re still about two months away from the next iPhone launch, case makers are already starting to bet on these designs. Filip Koroy, who goes by EverythingApplePro on YouTube, published a video showing the new iPhone 11 cases that are already being manufactured in China. He shows what they look like on the 3D mockups he has of the three designs (iPhone 11, 11R and 11 Max) and then puts them on the current line-up to show how much larger the camera module is compared to the 2018 line-up. According to the rumors, the 2019 iPhone 11 models will be a bit thicker than their predecessors, allowing the camera module to lie almost flush with the back of the phone despite its larger footprint. Looks aside, the iPhone’s camera is rumored to see big improvements in 2019. Those will include a new super-wide-angle option, more powerful zoom, better night shots capabilities and new software features with iOS 13.Apple may replace Face ID for Touch ID in ChinaThe other big iPhone news this week has to do with Apple’s plans to reinvigorate sales in China by offering a cheaper iPhone alternative. Apple may replace its current Face ID technology for a cheaper in-screen fingerprint scanner that would allow the company to lower production costs and reduce its iPhone prices in this market, according to a report in Chinese newspaper Global Times, cited in MacRumors. The US’s trade war with China and competition from other Chinese manufacturers offering phones at much lower prices have contributed to declining sales for Apple. Apple will likely stick with Face ID as its main form of biometric identification, but the company may choose to include both and in-screen Touch ID and Face ID in the global versions of the 2019 iPhones.New reports about Jony Ive’s departure from Apple Last week Apple announced its chief designer, Jony Ive will leave the company after nearly 30 years. According to Apple, Ive is leaving to start his own design firm next year and will take on Apple as one of his main clients. But this wasn’t enough to stop media reports about the alleged terms of his departure from surfacing shortly after the news went public. This week a report published in the Wall Street Journal says the design guru had been distancing himself from Apple for years because of conflicting opinions about the direction the company was headed after Jobs. It says that the news didn’t come as much of a shock to many of his employees. “Yet his departure from the company cements the triumph of operations over design at Apple, a fundamental shift from a business driven by hardware wizardry to one focused on maintaining profit margins and leveraging Apple’s past hardware success to sell software and services.” the report stated. Jony Ive’s departure marks the end of the Steve Jobs era. VCG/Getty Images Tim Cook was apparently not in agreement with the Journal’s portrayal of the situation, calling the article “absurd” after it went live. In an email to NBC News, published on twitter by reporter Dylan Byers, the Apple CEO said, “A lot of the reporting, and certainly the conclusions, just don’t match with reality. At a base level, it shows a lack of understanding about how the design team works and how Apple works. It distorts relationships, decisions and events to the point that we just don’t recognize the company it claims to describe.”Ive hasn’t responded directly to the report, but is quoted in Apple’s original announcement praising the team and the company. The WSJ is standing behind its reporting despite the backlash.

Photo: AFPEfforts to extract the remaining boys who are trapped in a flooded Thai cave have been paused for at least 10 hours, the operation commander told reporters after six were rescued.”The next operation is not expected to start for at least another 10 hours,” rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, as remaining members of the group remain trapped inside.
People protest outside Buckingham Palace during the state visit of US president Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to Britain, in London, Britain on 3 June. Photo: ReutersDonald Trump will plunge into Britain’s Brexit crisis on Tuesday and is likely to demand that prime minister Theresa May’s successor ban China’s Huawei from 5G networks as thousands of protesters mock the US president across London.Feted by Queen Elizabeth and heir prince Charles on the first day of his state visit to Britain, Trump turns to politics on Tuesday with talks in Downing Street, a news conference scheduled for 1245 GMT and a dinner that could include leaders of Brexit, such as Boris Johnson, the favourite to succeed May.Trump brings demands for the United States’ closest ally in Europe, including calls by his envoys for a tougher British stance towards telecoms giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd .At a lavish banquet in Buckingham Palace, Trump praised the queen as “a great, great woman” and said the United States and United Kingdom shared an enduring alliance.”As we honour our shared victory and heritage, we affirm the common values that will unite us long into the future; freedom, sovereignty, self-determination, the rule of law and reference for the rights given to us by almighty God,” he said.The state visit, promised by May back in January 2017 when she became the first foreign leader to meet him after he took office, is cast as a chance to celebrate Britain’s “special relationship” with the United States, boost trade links and reaffirm security cooperation.But the collapse of May’s premiership over Brexit and Trump’s penchant for ignoring the conventions of modern diplomacy have made the trip one of the most unconventional state visits in recent British history.Before Air Force One even touched down on British soil, Trump praised Johnson, the former foreign secretary and leading Brexit campaigner, and advised a sharp exit from the European Union on 31 October with or without a deal.Trump also called for arch-Brexiteer Nigel Farage, a scourge of May’s ruling Conservative Party, to conduct talks with the EU.Brexit, Blimp and ChinaBrexit is the most significant geopolitical move for the United Kingdom since World War Two and if it happens, London will be more reliant on the United States as ties loosen with the other 27 members of the EU.Huawei will top talks in London after the British government appeared to defy Trump administration demands and allow the Chinese company a limited role in building 5G networks.”We’ve been clear: Our ask is that our allies and our partners and our friends don’t do anything that would endanger our shared security interests or restrict our ability to share sensitive information,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.The Trump administration has told allies not to use Huawei’s 5G technology and equipment because of fears it would allow China to spy on sensitive communications and data. Huawei denies it is, or could be, a vehicle for Chinese intelligence.Britain’s so-called special relationship with the United States is an enduring alliance, but some British voters see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on issues ranging from global warming to his treatment of women.A giant inflatable blimp depicting Trump as a pouting baby in a diaper will fly outside the British parliament in London on Tuesday ahead of what is expected to be one of the city’s largest protests against a foreign leader.In central London, tens of thousands of protesters are expected to take part in a “Carnival of Resistance” later in the day to voice their opposition to the president. Among those taking part will be environmental activists, anti-racism campaigners and women’s rights protesters.While some Britons protest, May and Trump will hold a business breakfast at St James’ Palace with US firms such as Lockheed Martin Corp, JP Morgan Chase and Co, Goldman Sachs Group Inc, construction company Bechtel and cybersecurity and data analytics firm Splunk IncMay will present Trump with a framed reproduction of the Atlantic Charter, which hung on wartime prime minister Winston Churchill’s wall and set out principles of free trade and collective security that formed the basis of the postwar peace.As part of the visit, Trump will be given a tour of the Churchill War Rooms – a labyrinthine bunker-turned-museum underneath London, and he will take part in events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy, which turned the course of the war.Trump, May and their spouses will also view a ceremonial copy of the American Declaration of Independence. For lunch, they will have crab followed by beef fillet, and a meringue-based pudding known as ‘Eton mess’.While Trump and May sit down to political talks inside May’s Downing Street office, Philip May and Melania Trump will attend a garden party and take a guided tour of the building.The US first lady will receive a tea set created by designer Emma Bridgewater from the prime minister and her husband.

Courtesy photo(RNS) — Theologian and Christian apologist Norman Geisler, the author of dozens of books and the co-founder of two seminaries, has died. He was 86.His family announced his death on Monday (July 1) on his website.“It is with great sadness that we share this news that Norm Geisler passed away peacefully this morning,” reads the brief statement. “He has left behind an amazing legacy that will continue to have a ripple effect for many years to come.”In April, Southern Evangelical Seminary near Charlotte, North Carolina, announced Geisler was retiring from his teaching duties “due to health reasons.” Geisler co-founded that seminary in 1992.SES President Richard Land said Geisler influenced him as a seminary student in the early 1970s.“Dr. Geisler has been the ‘go to’ authority for more than two generations of evangelical seminary students who were looking for a bold, erudite, and uncompromisingly faithful defense of the inerrant, infallible Word of God and the historical doctrines of the Christian faith,” Land wrote in a tribute at The Christian Post. “His ministry was invaluable, and his influence incalculable.”Norman Geisler in 2004. Courtesy photoA philosopher and longtime defender of conservative Christian beliefs, Geisler founded the International Society of Christian Apologetics in 2006. Two years later, he co-founded Veritas Evangelical Seminary, a school in Santa Ana, California, now known as Veritas International University, according to the school’s history.The author of a four-volume set of books on systematic theology, Geisler spoke regularly at SES’ National Conference on Christian Apologetics. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was a prominent nationwide debater on topics ranging from abortion to creationism to the existence of God.In 1984, he appeared in a debate with Rabbi Harold Kushner over the question in the title of Kushner’s book, “Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?”William C. Roach, president of the International Society of Christian Apologetics, recalled Geisler’s contributions to Christian theology in a blog post on Monday.“In an era of church history when theology is in chaos, and the church is being shaken at its very core, and reality seems to be tossed to-and-fro with every wave of the sea,” Roach wrote, “we are grateful for the example of Dr. Geisler who stood as a beacon of truth shining forth in the midst of a dark world.”Roach added that Geisler was “much more than a scholar”; he was also a man who practiced what he preached. Roach, an adjunct professor at several institutions, including Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, recalled that the theologian would lend his car and a room of his home to people in need and “sing goofy Johnny Cash songs with his grandchildren.”A tweet from Defending Inerrancy, an initiative of scholars who believe the Bible is without error, described Geisler as the “greatest champion of full biblical inerrancy” in the last quarter of the 20th century and the first quarter of the 21st.Fellow Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias mourned the death of Geisler. Zacharias said that Geisler had been his professor in the 1970s and remained a mentor in the following years.“I owe more to him than anyone else for teaching me how to do apologetics for the Christian worldview,” Zacharias said in a tweet. “His death is a loss beyond words.” Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Tagsbiblical inerrancy homepage featured Norman Geisler obituary Ravi Zacharias Richard Land Southern Evangelical Seminary theologian,You may also like Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 Adelle M.
