New iPad And iPad Mini Are Here, More Closer To iPad Pro

Published

on

The Apple event did not have the iPhone 13 as the only protagonist, and its tablets also gained a lot of attention for their novelties.

Curiously, we can say that tablets are the products that have received the most news of all those presented today by Apple; specifically, the iPad Mini is a completely new device, which has nothing to do with the current one. Ironically, it is also the only device that most rumors have been fulfilled .

The new iPad Mini follows the design lines of Apple’s most cutting-edge models, the iPad Pro and the iPad Air, and inherits many of their technologies and lines. At first glance, it is clear that this is a “mini” version, but not the original iPad, but the new iPad Pro thanks to its all-screen design.

Eliminating the edges has allowed Apple to offer a larger 8.3-inch screen in the same small footprint. Therefore, the iPad Mini is better than ever as a secondary device, to take notes with the second generation Apple Pencil (which is magnetically attached), or even to edit our photos, connecting the camera directly via USB-C.

The new iPad Mini is capable of doing the same as the iPad Air, thanks to the A15 Bionic processor , but in a much smaller format. It can also be an alternative to portable video game consoles, thanks to the greater power of its five-core GPU, although that will also be useful for demanding applications.

The fact that the space dedicated to the Home button has disappeared does not mean that Apple has abandoned the use of TouchID; As in the iPad Air, the fingerprint reader is integrated into the power button, allowing us to unlock the tablet and use Apple Pay. 5G connectivity will be especially useful for enjoying content and working outdoors.

The new iPad Mini can now be reserved in Spain, with a starting price of 549 euros and launch on September 24.

The most basic iPad has also been renewed, although this time the changes are only hardware and it maintains the same design as always, as happened in the last generation; therefore, it is the last iPad to be left with the classic design.

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, either for taste or to be able to have access to the latest from Apple at a reasonable price. And is that the iPad now uses the A13 Bionic processor , used for the last time in the iPhone 11, gaining all the power and advantages, such as access to new smart functions.

For example, Apple knows that many people have tried to use the iPad to make video calls during this pandemic, and that is why it has improved the front camera , which is now 12 MP and has a wide viewing angle; better yet, it is compatible with Center Stage technology, in which the system is able to focus on the image automatically, detecting if more people enter.

However, it is difficult to look at the new iPad and not feel like it is being left behind. For example, it is already the only iPad that is not compatible with the second-generation Apple Pencil, and the only one that does not have an all-screen design. However, it is at the level of its range brothers in aspects such as iPadOS: we can also enjoy the commitment to multitasking and functions such as True Tone to change the temperature of the image automatically depending on where we are.

The new iPad is available to reserve for 379 euros, with a launch scheduled for September 24.

Florida Activist Desmond Meade Has Civil Rights Restored: Read Details

Published

Desmond Meade

Civil rights activist Desmond Meade – the man who has been fighting for the voting rights of felons in Florida – has finally won a prolonged battle. The Florida voting icon’s civil rights have been restored, allowing him to run for office, serve on a jury and take the bar exam.

Meade received the news on Saturday during his live broadcast on Twitter. According to Durham Herald Sun, the news was given to him by his family, who presented him with a letter from the Florida Clemency Board announcing that his civil rights have officially been restored.

“I feel great, another chapter in the journey,” he said after receiving the news. “It shows that you just got to keep pushing,” he added.

Meade is the founder, president, and executive director of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, which raises voice for the civil rights of citizens coming back to society after completing prison terms.

The right activist of Orlando, Meade, led a grassroots effort for many years that got success in 2018 with the statewide passage of Amendment 4 to the Florida Constitution, restoring voting rights for as many as 1.4 million Florida felons, including him.

However, despite approval from over two-thirds of state voters, the terms of restoration were the subject of debate, with GOP state leadership saying that returning citizens must pay all fees and fines before they could return to the voting booth.

Meade, who was convicted of drug and firearms offenses and served a jail term, already has the right to vote and had cast his right in the 2020 presidential elections.

Governor DeSantis Denied Right In March

In March 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican, for the second time denied a pardon for Meade, saying it was because of a serious allegation against him from the U.S. Army. DeSantis said Meade could go through the regular process to apply to have his civil rights restored.

On the very day, DeSantis and the Cabinet, sitting as the Clemency Board, adopted an “automatic process” to speed up the restoration of rights for felons who have completed jail terms or other offenses, including paying fines and fees. The move also abolished the five-year waiting period before felons can apply for restoration.

New Rules

According to new rules, the felons with outstanding legal financial obligations can still apply to have their civil rights restored, able to go before the clemency board, which can waive court-ordered fees and fines.

Meade’s rights were restored with that new rights restoration process that the FRRC pushed for. But the rights restoration rule does not apply to those people who are convicted of murder or felony sex crimes.

“It’s not a pardon, but it’s definitely a step,” Meade said in the video. “I can apply to the Florida Bar now, I can get a house, I can run for office if I wanted to run for office.”

MacArthur Fellow

According to WUSF News, Meade was made a 2021 MacArthur Fellow in September. He was also granted a sum of $625,000 as a “Genius grant”. Meade has said the money will be used to pay off law school loans and to continue his work for people convicted of felonies.

Orlando man goes live on Facebook before hitting Police officers with brick

Published

on

ORLANDO, Fla. — A man in Orlando, Florida hit the police and injured two officers with brick on Saturday morning. The police revealed that the culprit had set up a video live stream on Facebook before causing the incident. The attack took place when the officers were standing at Magnolia Avenue around 12:40 a.m. on Saturday “as part of a downtown detail”, police said.

The culprit was identified as William McClish, 27. A number of charges have been filed against him, including an attempt at the first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer with a weapon, said the police.

Videos of the attack are doing rounds on YouTube, which was posted by the Orlando Police Department. The footage shows a man walking towards a police car while picking up something from the ground. Thereafter, the man moves towards the police car and starts ambushing them with the brick. A second officer comes to the rescue and starts punching the man to the ground. The dispute, however, continued but the camera couldn’t capture the whole of it. Subsequently, the squabble took attention and more police arrived on the scene.

Nearly four officers could finally arrest the man.

The YouTube description of the live stream by the Orlando police stated: “It was determined the man set up a camera to live-stream the attack to Facebook – that is the source of the video above.”

Further, police Chief Orlando Rolón also issued a statement citing that the incident marks the second unprovoked attack on Orlando police officers in one week.

Eyewitnesses reported that the officer was speaking with another officer when a man suddenly attacked without warning.

Rolón also stated: “One officer has a significant facial injury. The other was bit and nearly had his eye gouged out. Our officers will recover from their injuries, but individuals like this who take premeditated steps to harm law enforcement officers and other human beings must be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Another attack on the police had taken place just a few days ago when several individuals opened fire on two police officers.

According to a report by news station WESH, in a similar incident on Tuesday, two Orlando police officers were investigating a tip in an unmarked vehicle when three men opened fire on them. Officers returned fire.  None of the officers were injured. Three men have been arrested in connection with the shooting.

Rolón said: “We cannot wait for an officer or a citizen to be murdered. Prosecution and proper sentencing will be a deterrent for those who think they will only get a slap on the hand and probation soon after a short time in prison.”

While one officer hit with the bricks sustained severe nose injury, the second officer suffered profound eye damage with his left eye gouged out. He was bitten several times on his arm and hand.

McClish was later taken into custody following the attack.
