"There will be no Bashar al-Assad in the future," al-Jubeir told newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung. "It might take three months, it might take six months or three years - but he will no longer carry responsibility for Syria.

  • Iran's main opposition leaderless, but insists it's not a spent force

    By Parisa Hafezi ANKARA (Reuters) - Hope for change is dwindling but not gone among supporters of Iran's main pro-reform opposition, although its leaders remain under house arrest and pragmatist President Hassan Rouhani looks incapable of achieving the freer society he promised. Mass disqualifications of reformist candidates are further undermining the chances of political and social change to match Iranians' expectations of a better economic life after Rouhani fulfilled his other election promise - to end international sanctions on the country under a nuclear deal with major powers. In 2009, the disputed re-election of hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plunged Iran into its biggest internal crisis since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

  • Donald Trump and Univision Settle $500 Million Miss Universe Lawsuit

    Donald Trump capped off his New Hampshire primary win by reaching a settlement with Univision over his $500 lawsuit, the network and politician announced Thursday. "I have known Univision's President and CEO, Randy Falco, for more than 20 years and I'm glad we are able to put these differences behind us," Trump, 69, said in a statement. The battle began in June, when Univision decided not to air the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants – which Trump then owned – following the presidential hopeful's inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants, who he claimed are "rapists" who are "bringing drugs" and "bringing crime" to the United States during a stump speech.

  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus rumors and news leaks

    Enjoying the feel of that sparkly new rose gold iPhone 6S in your hand, and the joy of 3D Touch? Well, we don’t want to spoil that, but Apple’s already working on the iPhone 7, and rumors about it are beginning to spread. Here’s what we think we know about Apple’s next major smartphone release so far. Updated on 02-12-2016 by Malarie Gokey: Added in rumors about lightning headphones without noise canceling for the iPhone 7. Click on a link to jump to a topic: No headphone jack iPhone 7 camera technology 3D Touch and security OLED screen, RAM and other specs Liquid metal, waterproof design September release date No more headphone jack Apple is no stranger to eliminating ports and forcing users to switch cables and accessories to adapt. For a few months now, the rumor mill has been hinting that Apple will kill the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and opt for a wireless-only standard. Related: Goodbye wires: Apple said to be working on wireless earbuds for the iPhone 7 In a note, Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn hinted that the iPhone 7 will have headphones that connect through the lightning port, but they won’t feature noise canceling. The two analysts think that noise canceling will come along with the iPhone 7S, since Apple’s audio component supplier Cirrus Logic is expected to introduce an improved noise-cancellation smart codec. The analysts added that Apple may put another speaker on the iPhone 7 where the 3.5mm headphone jack currently sits. Naturally, these are just the suppositions of analysts and not solid facts. At first, it sounded like a mad idea, but now, Twitter user Chase Fromm spotted a hint in the iOS 9.3 beta code that hints the 3.5mm headphone jack will bite the dust on future iPhones. The code says, “Headphones.have.%sinput.NO.” However, not everyone is so sure that the code is concrete proof that the headphone jack is dead. Jesus H. Christ. pic.twitter.com/ybYFdOiR60 — Cʜᴀsᴇ Fʀᴏᴍᴍ ™ (@uloshe) January 18, 2016 A reputable source says Apple’s plan to kill the headphone jack is real. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, who often gets Apple scoops before anyone else, reported that Apple is at the prototype stage with a new pair of wireless earbuds for the iPhone 7. They could be called AirPods and be entirely wireless, like the Moto Hint. The earbuds could have a few buttons for taking calls and activating Siri, and would likely include different sized gels for a better fit. Gurman says the earbuds would come in a carrying case to charge them. Please enable Javascript to watch this video An earlier report hinted that the headphone jack might disappear, but headphones could be connected via the lightning port instead. Of course, that would pose problems for those who need to charge their phones while listening to audio with headphones. It’s unclear at this point if the rumors will prove true. Flush cam housing on the iPhone 7, dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus Apple has always steadily improved the iPhone’s camera, and since the introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, has subtly separated them by making a few features unique to the larger Plus model. This may continue with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, according to rumors. In a February report, Macrumors says Apple will reduce the size of the iPhone 7’s camera lens so it sits flush with the body, rather than sitting proud like it does on the iPhone 6S. It’s not clear whether this will continue on the 7 Plus, but other reports hint Apple might include a dual-camera setup on the larger phone. DigiTimes reported in early February that Apple received dual-lens camera samples from Largan Technology, as well as other lens makers from Japan and China. Apple will supposedly test these samples with the hopes of using one of them on the iPhone 7 Plus or a “premium” version of it. Based in Taiwan. Largan supplies over 60 percent of Apple’s smartphone cameras, but according to the report, Apple might want to utilize dual-lens cameras from other manufacturers to lower its risk. KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo suggested in a late January report (via 9to5Mac) that Apple will offer a “premium” version of the iPhone 7 Plus, which will feature a dual-camera system. Apple acquired Linx Imaging a while ago, and may use its tech in the special iPhone 7 Plus model, Kuo hints. The tech takes two independent photos and blends them together for an overall better image. Related: iPad Air 3 news and rumors The Linx Imaging technology is not the only high-tech feature that may be added to the special edition iPhone 7 Plus. According to Kuo’s note, the camera will also feature an optical zoom with 2-3x magnification, optical image stabilization, and a much larger field of view. The regular iPhone 7 Plus might be downgraded to a telephoto lens and small field of view to make the premium model more valuable to customers who love to take photos. Of course, Apple hasn’t commented on the report, so it’s still firmly in the rumor mill. It is not the first time we’ve heard of multiple iPhone models, a report last year out of China said Apple was testing five different iPhone models. One of those models apparently featured a dual-camera system, though the report didn’t mention any of the other camera specs. 3D Touch advancements, fingerprint sensor in the display A December 2015 report from Ming-Chi Kuo said that 3D Touch will still feature prominently in the new iPhone, but so far, Kuo believes the tech will work the same way on the iPhone 7 as on the 6S. Earlier reports teased the possibility of multi-3D Touch, but it’s unclear if it will arrive on this year’s iPhone. Hard press on the Notes app to initiate Quick Actions. Jeffrey Van Camp/Digital Trends The report from inside China suggested that the five iPhones being tested all had one particular feature of interest. The features include wireless charging, fingerprint recognition on the display, multi Force Touch, dual-cameras, and a USB Type-C connector. Previous patents have suggested Apple is working on wireless charging and fingerprint recognition technology on the display, though the patent for wireless charging was filed three years ago. OLED screen, RAM and other high-end specs Apple could make some big changes on the iPhone 7’s spec sheet. The biggest rumor that’s come out has to do with a move from LCD screens to OLED screens. Some reports say the iPhone 7 will get an OLED screen, but others say the new screens won’t be ready in time and will arrive on later iPhones. You can read all those rumors here. Up until the iPhone 6S, Apple’s phones only sported 1GB of RAM, even though many Android competitors used 3 or 4GB of RAM in their flagship phones. Now, reports hint that the iPhone 7 will get even more RAM than the 6S, with rumors of 3GB of RAM popping up for the iPhone 7 Plus. The claim has been made more than once, and TrendForce is the latest to join the fray. Related: When will the iPhone use an OLED screen? Here are all the rumors Analyst Kuo also chimed in on the iPhone 7 with another report, claiming it will run on a new A10 chip built entirely by TSMC, a Taiwanese chip manufacturer that has worked with Apple in the past, and built some of the current A9 processors. He also claims the iPhone 7 Plus will have 3GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 will only use 2GB. Foxconn will apparently manufacture the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and it should launch towards the end of this year, says Kuo. It may be made of liquid metal and waterproof As we said before, if Apple follows its own mobile trend the iPhone 7 should come with an entirely new design. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iPhone 7 will be the thinnest yet at between 6 and 6.5mm thick. That is around the same as the iPad Air 2, and a millimeter thinner than the current generation iPhone. In February, in the same Macrumors report that discussed making the camera lens housing sit flush with the iPhone 7’s body, it’s also stated Apple will remove the plastic antenna inserts across the body, although the ones on the sides and edges will stay. One of the more prevalent early rumors concerns a waterproof iPhone 7. DigiTimes reports Taiwan’s Commercial Times discovered evidence that says Catcher Technologies will supply waterproof iPhone 7 chassis components. The company also said “new compound materials” will conceal the antenna bands on he back of the device, which also fits with more recent rumors. TrendForce published a press release asserting the iPhone 7 will be waterproof. Another post made to the Chinese social network Weibo, and reported by Macotakara, also said the iPhone 7 will have a waterproof and dustproof body. Related: Here’s our comprehensive iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus buying guide Another Weibo post talks about Apple using a new, but unnamed material to make the iPhone 7 case, and it won’t be metal. Rumors have spread in the past about an all liquid metal iPhone, but have never come true, and this may signal Apple has decided to go in a different direction with the next-generation phone. Apple might be planning to axe the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone 7, and replace it with a USB Type-C connector that supports proprietary headphones, according to sources in China. September release date rumored Apple typically reveals the new iPhone in September at a big event, and although rumors always pop up that it’ll arrive earlier or later, the new iPhone usually comes out right on schedule every fall. Noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose predictions are very often correct, said in a note to investors obtained by MacRumors that the iPhone 7 will arrive in September 2016 as per Apple’s custom. It is early yet, though, so expect to hear a lot more speculation on the launch date. It’s very early days for the iPhone 7, despite what these rumors may make you think. We don’t even know if Apple will continue with adding an increasing number to the iPhone name, or if it’ll come up with something new for this edition. Whatever the case, we’ll keep you updated with all the news and rumors over the months leading up to the next iPhone’s 2016 introduction.

  • Smuggled into North Korea, your old flash drives could help topple a dictatorship

    The people of North Korea are stuck in an unfortunate situation right now. The country’s leadership feeds its citizens propaganda about poverty and danger in the outside world, and thanks to Kim Jong-un’s strict media ban, citizens have no access to any other information. It’s an issue that not enough people are aware of, according to some of the human rights organizations that are fighting to spread awareness about the situation. But there’s at least one organization out there that’s actively trying to change things. A new campaign called Flash Drives for Freedom is fighting to smuggle media resources and foreign pop culture into North Korea. By providing flash drives loaded with foreign movies and TV shows, the campaign hopes that North Korean citizens will be able to see what the world beyond their borders really looks like. Related: North Korean satellite nonfunctional and ‘tumbling in orbit’ following weekend launch The Human Rights Foundation and nonprofit group Forum 280 are the driving forces behind Flash Drives for Freedom. They collect flash drive donations from all over the United States, and the North Korean Strategy Center based in Seoul fills the drives with movies and TV shows from South Korea and the Western World. They also include Korean language translations of Wikipedia pages, and even interviews with North Korean defectors. It’s dangerous, but the coalition then smuggles the drives into North Korean territory. Most of the campaign’s budget actually goes to paying the bribes that convince officials on both sides of the Korean border to let the transport pass. (stephan)/flickr Flash drives are a disappearing part of the American tech scene, but to North Koreans looking to get their hands on foreign culture, flash drives are a lifeline to the outside world. Shows like ‘Friends’ and ‘Desperate Housewives’ are apparently favorites in North Korea. Granted, most TV shows and Hollywood movies are questionable representations of real life in the Western world, but even so, Flash Drives for Freedom hopes that having access to some of the culture we’re creating will give North Koreans everything from knowledge to political leverage. “Each one has the potential to literally change someone’s life,” said Human Rights Foundation Chief Strategy Officer, Alex Gladstein. So far, the North Korean Strategy Center has been able to smuggle between 3,000 and 5,000 media-loaded flash drives over the border every year. With the support of the organizations behind Flash Drives for Freedom and other North Korean activism groups, the campaign hopes to smuggle as many a 2,000 drives a month over the next three years.

    It wasn't that long ago when Stephen Curry's NBA future seemed in doubt as he was constantly plagued by ankle issues. In the 2011-12 season, Curry managed only 26 games and had sprained his ankle five times. As ESPN's Pablo S. Torre wrote in a fascinating piece, Curry's rise has been the result, in part, from a training routine a Warriors medical staffer named Keke Lyles developed during Curry's early seasons.
