New iPhone 13 Is Official, Few News For A Year Of Transition

Published

on

As planned, Apple has used today’s event to present the new iPhone 13, another generation of the smartphone that has taken it where it is.

It is an expected launch, like all Apple ones, but not revolutionary; but that is something that we already knew thanks to the rumors that have been published throughout the year. In fact, the biggest surprise is that many of those predictions, such as satellite connectivity , have ultimately not come to fruition , and the iPhone 13 is even closer to the iPhone 12 than expected.

That does not mean that there are no news, but they all consist of improving what is present. In the case of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Mini, these improvements are concentrated in two new sensors for the rear cameras, both 12 megapixels; The main camera has optical image stabilization technology, and it performs better in low light situations thanks to its larger aperture.

But otherwise, the only palpable difference is the new processor, the A15 Bionic ; But even that reveal has been somewhat mild, as Apple has avoided comparing it to the iPhone 12’s A14, preferring to compare its figures with mysterious competitors. Yes, the A15 Bionic will probably be very powerful, but as Apple itself confesses, the A14 already was; It is not a big change or motivation to spend the same for a new iPhone 13, although, at least, the rumor that they were going to go up in price has not been confirmed either.

The screen houses more novelties but, disappointingly, it does not adapt the ProMotion technology of the Pro models; therefore, it remains at 60 Hz, when all the Android competition for the same price offers 90 Hz or 120 Hz. At least, the screen is brighter, and the ‘notch’ or notch is smaller; although again, it is still remarkable and has not disappeared far from it.

Battery improvements appear to be more noticeable, thanks to a new internal design that has allowed larger batteries to fit into all devices. And it is to be hoped that it will continue to be the reference in power, photography and video; On the latter, the new cinematic mode stands out, which adds an automatic depth effect depending on factors such as the position of the subject, if their eyes are visible to the camera or if another subject enters the scene. All this is done in real time, demonstrating the power of the processor.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini probably won’t convince those who already have an iPhone 12; But those little improvements may be what convince those who didn’t make the leap. The iPhone 13 Mini will be available for 809 euros, and the iPhone 13, for 909 euros , with the reservation period starting this September 17, and available from September 24.

History repeats itself with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Yes, they are the most powerful and complete mobiles in Apple’s history, but what else did we expect?

At least, its list of novelties is a little longer, and those of the cheaper models must be added more interesting ones, such as the new 120 Hz screen ; although technically, we can say that it is a screen from 10 Hz to 120 Hz. We have already seen many mobiles with fast screens, but the key to Apple’s technology is that it will work intelligently so as not to waste the entire battery moving anything; if it shows a static image, the screen will brake automatically, and if we move the interface, it will instantly change to full speed.

The iPhone 13 Pro are also planted as the best mobiles to record video , including the cinema mode that adds depth of field automatically, allowing us to change the focus after recording. In photography, the new sensors are the largest ever used by Apple, and that will translate into better low-light photos, as well as new macro photos using the wide angle instead of dedicating a specific lens.

The iPhone 13 Pro will cost 1,159 euros and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, 1,259 euros, available for reservation from September 17 and on sale on September 24.

Last week, a leak revealed the possible design of the iPhone 14 . And if we trust that (something that not everyone will do after today’s fiascos), this will probably be a year of transition, in which Apple gathers strength for a future revolution.

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

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.
