Apple's 128GB iPad is somehow cheaper right now than it was on Black Friday
When Apple's current-generation iPad tablets went on sale at deep discounts for Black Friday last year, people flipped out. It makes sense of course, since truly deep discounts on Apple products are so rare. Well, get ready to flip out even more because Amazon somehow just gave the Apple iPad an even deeper discount! The 128GB model that was $80 off on Black Friday is now a whopping $101 off, slashing the price all the way down to just $328. That's an all-time low, and we doubt we'll ever see a better bargain on an iPad. If you don't need that much storage, you can also still get the 32GB model for just $249, which is also an all-time low.Here are the highlights from the product page: * 9.7-inch Retina display * A10 Fusion chip * Touch ID fingerprint sensor * 8MP back camera and 1.2MP FaceTime HD front camera * Two speaker audio * 802.11ac Wi-Fi * Up to 10 hours of battery life * Lightning connector for charging and accessories * iOS 12 with Group FaceTime, shared augmented reality experiences, Screen Time, and more

Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong leaves jail, vows to join protests
Leading Hong Kong democracy activist Joshua Wong walked free from prison Monday and vowed to join historic anti-government protests rocking the finance hub, as activists kept up pressure on the city's embattled pro-Beijing leader. Organisers said some two million people -- more than a quarter of the population -- marched in tropical heat on Sunday calling for the resignation of chief executive Carrie Lam and protesting against a bill that would have allowed extraditions to the Chinese mainland. Police commissioner Stephen Lo said late Monday that only "some people" had rioted on that day, appearing to back down from previous comments from Lam, who described the June 12 protest as an "organised riot".

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next year
Leaks concerning this fall's upcoming iPhone models continue to trickle out at a steady pace, but some analysts are already looking ahead to 2020. In a research note shared with AnTuTu (via MacRumors), TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed new details about the prospective 2020 smartphone lineup from Apple.According to Kuo, Apple will once again release three iPhone models in 2020, but will make significant changes to the designs of the high-end models. The successors to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will supposedly feature 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively, and will both support 5G. The iPhone 11R follow-up will retain a 6.1-inch display, but Kuo believes that all three models will have OLED screens in 2020.Furthermore, Kuo says that every iPhone model will support 5G by 2021, and that Qualcomm will be Apple's primary supplier of 5G modems initially. By 2022 or 2023, though, Apple should have its own 5G modem ready, which would reduce its reliance on Qualcomm (with which Apple recently reached a major settlement agreement).A vast majority of the credible leaks concerning this year's iPhone models suggest that Apple will stick to the familiar notch design for at least one more year. It's hard to see Apple opting for any of the current design alternatives, such as the pop-up camera of the OnePlus 7 Pro or the hole-punch camera of the Galaxy S10. But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will

Mitch McConnell Wonders Why Jon Stewart Is ‘All Bent Out of Shape' Over 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund
After comedian Jon Stewart raked him over the coals for dragging his feet (once again) on extending the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell complained Monday morning that Stewart was just looking for some way to be offended. And the senator added that he didn't get why he was "all bent out of shape."Following his emotional House testimony on behalf of 9/11 first responders in which he excoriated Congress for seemingly not caring about the plight of the victims, Stewart appeared on Fox News Sunday and shamed McConnell for not prioritizing the bill."I want to make it clear that this has never been dealt with compassionately by Senator McConnell," the former Daily Show host said. "He has always held out until the very last minute and only then, under intense lobbying and public shaming has he even deigned to move on it."Appearing Monday on Fox & Friends, McConnell was asked to react to Stewart's comments. The Kentucky lawmaker essentially shrugged and said this is just how Congress works."Well, many things in Congress happen at the last minute," he responded. "We've never failed to address this issue and we will address it again. I don't know why he is all bent out of shape but we will take care of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund."Co-host Steve Doocy noted that Stewart appeared to be upset during his House testimony that many members of the subcommittee didn't show up that day, prompting McConnell

AOC: ‘Hyde Amendment Is about Income Inequality' Not Abortion
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Sunday praised former vice president Joe Biden for his recently announced opposition to the Hyde amendment and said that her own opposition to the prohibition on the direct federal funding of abortion is rooted in her concern about income inequality."I'm encourage by the fact that he is now against the Hyde Amendment," Ocasio-Cortez told ABC's Jonathan Karl when asked about Biden's recent reversal on the issue.Ocasio-Cortez, who launched a petition over the weekend to build public support for the amendment's repeal, went on to explain that the direct federal funding of abortion is necessary to protect the abortion rights of incarcerated pregnant women."Reproductive health care for incarcerated women should be guaranteed as it is with all women in the United States, so I think it really depends," said the freshman New York lawmaker. More from her remarks: And that's really what the Hyde amendment is really about. The Hyde amendment isn't about abortion per se. The Hyde amendment is truly about equality of healthcare and healthcare access for low income women and women of color and women that get caught in our mass incarceration system. And so the Hyde amendment is about income inequality and it's about women's healthcare in a system of income inequality. So I think that we need to repeal it.After maintaining support for the Hyde amendment throughout his decades-long career in politics, Biden reversed himself last month in response to pressure from ab

New leak may confirm Samsung's massive Galaxy Note 10 redesign
It's still far too early to say for certain whether the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 have truly been a success for Samsung. The second quarter of 2019 will be the first full quarter of sales for the company's new flagship phones series, so we should find out sometime next month whether the Galaxy S10 series gave Samsung's mobile division the boost it so sorely needed after last year's Galaxy S9 series was a flop. What we can say for certain, however, is that the Galaxy S10 series is a massive step in the right direction for Samsung. While last year's Galaxy S and Galaxy Note flagship phones were uninspired and boring, this year's Galaxy S10 phones finally feature the elegant redesign and all-screen display that Samsung fans have been craving.Thankfully, there's more good news on the way for Samsung fans, and it's much-needed considering the current Galaxy Fold disaster (though we totally warned you more than a year before it was announced that the Galaxy Fold would end up being a piece of junk). It turns out that the upcoming new Galaxy Note 10 is getting the same type of massive redesign that the Galaxy S10 got earlier this year, and now a new series of leaks may confirm Samsung's new design... or should we say, "designs."That's right, Samsung fans: for the first time ever, it appears as though Samsung will release not one but two different Galaxy Note phones. Just as Samsung followed Apple's lead with the Galaxy S10 series and added a (slightly) less expensive entry-level model, the Note 10 will seemin

Here Are Five New Takeaways From Trump's ABC News Interview
ABC NewsBy the time ABC News aired its lengthy, wide-ranging, and extensive interview with President Trump on Sunday evening, many of the most headline-making moments had already been released by the network via excerpts. Washington has already been rocked, for example, by the bombshell revelation that Trump was seemingly open to the idea of receiving dirt on his 2020 opponents from foreign entities and didn't think it was necessary to contact the FBI if approached.But while we already knew heading into Sunday night that Trump wouldn't speak to Robert Mueller because he was concerned about lying, that he didn't fire Mueller because firings didn't "work out too well" for Richard Nixon, and that he believes former White House Counsel Don McGahn lied to Mueller to make himself look good, there were still a number of eyebrow-raising tidbits from the full interview.1) Trump hopes North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un isn't building nuclear weapons because "he likes me a lot."Discussing the president's claim a year ago that North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat, ABC News' George Stephanopoulos pressed the president on the fact that the reclusive nation still has stockpiles of nuclear weapons. Trump, meanwhile, insisted that there had been no nuclear testing by the country before boasting about his warm relationship with dictator Kim Jong Un.After the president bragged about the concessions he had received from North Korea (and the "very nice letters" from Kim), Stephanopoulos asked him point blank if he thought the brutal No

"I will join to fight against this evil law," said Wong, 22, who was one of the leaders of the 2014 "Umbrella" pro-democracy protests that blocked major roads in Hong Kong for 79 days. Wong acknowledged he still had to fully grasp the scale of the crisis at a time when Chinese President Xi Jinping is grappling with a deepening U.S. trade war, an ebbing economy and regional strategic tension.

"The government has just set a new target for the 100 per cent roll-out of full fiber broadband - by 2033! ... As a deadline, that is laughably unambitious," he wrote.
