Apple has a new imitator on the block as the Leagoo S9 clones the iPhone X notch

9to5Mac - 6 hours 57 min ago

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Apple’s biggest flatterer to date has been Chinese brand Xiaomi, with its Mi Phone, Mi Pad, iOS-like Android skin and even website and keynote presentation cloning.

But another Chinese brand is seemingly aiming to take things one step further …

The Daily Buddha - 7 hours 3 min ago

We’ve got to be as clear-headed about ourselves as possible, because we are still each other’s only hope.

A great deal of what I believe and honor in this life leaves me open. Open to questions, open to conversations and yes, to a vast amount of misunderstanding. I believe we all share in this and a great deal of what people say, believe and honor is based on an assumptions we hold and don’t always state. Its almost like a hidden chest of items that always need our attention and energy.

For the most part we are all responsible, moral creatures who so often do not act that way. But are any of us surprised by this? Does anyone wonder why in our current times we tend to see each other as the problem instead of the solution?

Let us not be so gullibly independent (we live our life, but not without the efforts and works of others), pessimist or isolated. Let us face both the need of others to live, survive, get to work, have a job and literally exist as a human in our moments here. BUT, let us not EXPECT everyone to be awake and present to this mindset I describe. Let us all remember that we are each at different points and states of living and understanding the gifts of life. INSTEAD let us have compassion for each other first and foremost, let us expect to act as humans react – emotional, strong and most importantly able to perceive and overcome our own misgivings.

If I didn’t have some ultimate faith and love, faith in US and love for US I am unsure how I would be balanced with the ME. You see, I am a human being too, and I have no right to stand in judgment of the world as though I am not a part of it. What I hope for and expect of others is what I hope for, expect of and work toward of myself.

Peace and Love, Jim

Powerless disables all feedback when connecting your device to a power source

iDownloadBlog - 8 hours 34 min ago

Whenever you attach an iOS device to a power source to charge your battery, you receive feedback letting you know that the power connection succeeded. iPads and iPod touches provide audible feedback, but iPhones can provide both audible and vibratory feedback.

While these types of feedback can be useful in several scenarios, everyone knows that two sides exist to every story. With that in mind, Powerless is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer CydiaGeek that disables all power connection feedback entirely.... Read the rest of this post here

On the Road and In Your Backyard

Balloon Juice - 9 hours 33 min ago

Good Morning All,

This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.

So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.

You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.

For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!

 

Today, pictures from me since I had some tech problems because I didn’t listen, even though Mx4 told me, clearly.

These pictures are my old backyard in Canon City, Colorado. This was why I bought the property, in Dawson Ranch – the view, looking up, West, and W-NW, but mostly the wilderness aspect of the property.

I saw, or saw evidence of: mountain lion, bear, mule dear, antelope, roadrunner, wild turkey, rabbit, bobcat, eagle, collared lizard, tarantulas, red racers, rattlesnakes, a moving queen bee/hive, rare salamanders, toads that dry out and hibernate most of the time, yet fill your koi pond with TENS of POUNDS of frog sperm, and much else.  And omg – have you ever seen those Mexican multicolored grasshoppers made of wood? My first summer in Colorado, they were there for a few weeks. It was amazing – some were the size of small birds, length-wise, and they ate everything they could of my fruits and veggies.

Obvs  – birds made these large bugs into major food.  True story – with witnesses – I found this super jumbo red and blue grasshopper and took it around to the front yard, in the shade of a tree and not out in the open. It was amazingly big, and worthy of saving, and yet, less than 30 seconds later, a “punk ass” robin swooped down, stole its head and subsequently returned for a part or two. Quite horrible, but instructive – man can’t always spare the natural order.

And yes, that’s a disc golf hole, a portable I’ve still got, 10 years later. I’ve got some discs that are older than some readers, I figure.

Although I’m not an active player, over the years I’ve played courses across the US and in Asia, Europe, and South America. Disc golf is a great activity, so try it sometime.

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow, great stuff!

 

Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.

 

One again, to submit pictures: Use the Form or Send an Email

France To Ban Mobile Phones In Schools

Slashdot - 9 hours 34 min ago
The French government is planning to ban students from using mobile phones in the country's primary, junior and middle schools. While children will be permitted to bring their phones to school, they will not be allowed to get them out at any time until they leave, even during breaks. The Guardian reports: Jean-Michel Blanquer, the French education minister, said the measure would come into effect from the start of the next school year in September 2018. It will apply to all pupils from the time they start school at age of six -- up to about 15 when they start secondary school. Blanquer said some education establishments already prohibited pupils from using their mobiles. "Sometimes you need a mobile for teaching reasons [...] for urgent situations, but their use has to be somehow controlled," he told RTL radio. The minister said the ban was also a "public health message to families," adding: "It's good that children are not too often, or even at all, in front of a screen before the age of seven." The French headteachers' union was skeptical that the ban could be enforced.
