Trump threatens to send military, shut border as migrants head for Mexico

Top Stories - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 21:37

Stretching almost 2,000 miles (3,200 km), the U.S.-Mexican border is one of the busiest in the world, processing thousands of commuters daily and much of the half a trillion dollars of annual trade between Mexico and the United States. "I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught - and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!" Trump wrote on Twitter. Several thousand Honduran migrants moved this week through Guatemala, and some were trying to cross to Mexico on Thursday, local media said.

iPhone XR vs iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max: Which one should you buy?

Macworld - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 16:00

Just like last year, Apple announced three new iPhone models, but it’s not so easy to tell them apart anymore. Gone is the old-school design with the home button and the giant bezels, and in its place are three new models with iPhone X styling. (But don’t worry, if you really like the old look, you can still buy an iPhone 8 or 8 PlusRemove non-product link.)

Apple sends out colorful, creative invites to presumed Mac, iPad event

Macworld - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 13:23

As expected for weeks, Apple has finally sent out invitations to its next event, which will be held at the Howard Gilman Opera House in the Brooklyn Academy of Music on October 30. But this time around, Apple had a little more fun with the invitations.

Apple event invites always consist of a main image and a clever phrase, but this one is different. While all of the invitations feature the same "There's more in the making" tagline, everyone who received an invite seems to have gotten a different image. As you can see above, they all feature a unique spin on the Apple logo, each with a clear eye toward creativity. Our invite is one of the creepier ones, with slime dripping off the Apple logo. But hey, it is Halloween.

A new MacBook may be on the way, but I'm not buying one until Apple dumps Intel for its own chip

Macworld - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 12:55

Apple has finally sent out invitations for its semi-annual fall event that expects to be loaded with new products: an all-new iPad Pro with USB-C, slim bezels, and Face ID. We may also see a new Mac mini allegedly geared at pro users, refreshed iMacs, and a new low-priced MacBook.

While an updated Mac mini will be the kind of pigs-flying release that I'll believe when I see, I'm most intrigued by the MacBook. Not since the days of the polycarbonate iBook G4 and original MacBook has Apple sold a true budget notebook. Sure, the current MacBook Air retails for $999, but there are a lot of compromises there: a non-retina screen, outdated processor, and aging ports. And above that is the plain MacBook, which is hardly a bargain with its $1,300 starting price.

French foie gras makers say they are ready if bird flu returns

Top Stories - Thu, 10/18/2018 - 12:30

French foie gras makers, still recovering from two severe bird flu crises that ravaged flocks, said on Thursday they would be able to face any new outbreak thanks to strict security measures but prices will remain high to make up for increased costs. France, which has one of the largest poultry flocks in the European Union, is one of the countries that was most affected by the H5N8 bird flu virus that spread through wild birds across the continent last year. Of course some cases may break out at any time but by no means we will be in the same situation, we'll be able to deal with it very quickly," Marie-Pierre Pe, director of French foie gras makers group CIFOG, told reporters.
