The 787-8 aircraft is headed Monday to a facility in California where Boeing can help maintain the presidential jet until a buyer is found, Finance Minister Carlos Urzua and Banobras development bank director Jorge Mendoza said in a message to reporters in Mexico City.

Sri Lanka court bars Rajapaksa from office, disputed PM to appeal

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 11:40

The South Asian nation has been in crisis since President Maithripala Sirisena replaced Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe with Rajapaksa in October, then issued an order dissolving parliament and called for a general election. Sirisena's decisions have prompted legal challenges and on Friday the Appeal Court began hearing a petition by 122 legislators challenging Rajapaksa's authority to hold office after he lost two no-confidence votes last month. "The damage that will be posed by temporarily restraining a lawful cabinet of ministers from functioning would be...outweighed by the damage that would be caused by allowing a set of persons who are not entitled in law to function as the prime minister or the cabinet of ministers," judge Preethipadhman Surasena said.

German conservative questions future of Russian gas pipeline

Top Stories - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 11:08

A key ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday raised questions about the future of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline amid growing concern about Russia's seizure of three Ukrainian ships and their crew off the coast of Russian-annexed Crimea. Juergen Hardt, foreign policy spokesman for Merkel's conservatives in parliament, told Reuters that further sanctions against Russia would have to be considered unless diplomatic efforts were able to resolve the conflict. "When diplomatic efforts to ease tensions fail, we cannot ignore the question of whether it is responsible to further increase the dependence of Germany and the European Union on Russia gas," he said.

The $29 iPhone battery replacement program ends on New Year’s Eve

Macworld - Mon, 12/03/2018 - 06:00

Apple’s reduced-rate battery replacement program for older iPhones has been around for so long that it started to feel as though it’d always be with us. Alas, all good things come to an end. The year-long promotion—which lets you replace your older iPhone’s battery for just $29 (down from $79)—is set to end on December 31. If you have an iPhone SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, or X and you aren’t satisfied with its battery life, now is the time to act.

Seriously, get on that if you haven’t. Even I know a couple of iPhone 6 users who are dragging their feet, which surprises me as they regularly complain about the device’s battery life. It’s not even that hard. Replacing it is a simple battery of taking your phone to a Genius Bar or (less optimally) shipping it off to Apple for repairs.
