Israeli army says didn't deliberately kill Palestinian nurse in Gaza

Top Stories - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 11:31

The Israeli military said on Tuesday initial findings from an investigation into the killing of a Palestinian nurse during protests on the Gaza border showed that she was not shot deliberately. Gaza health officials and witnesses said Israeli forces shot dead 21-year-old Razan al-Najar, a volunteer medic, as she ran toward the border fence, east of the south Gaza town of Khan Younis, in a bid to reach a casualty last Friday. The Israeli military said Palestinian militants had attacked its troops along the border with gunfire and a grenade.

Restricted views: Unstated reasons for limited access in iOS

Macworld - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 09:00

Apple’s WWDC Keynote was on Monday so that meant you had to get any complaints about the company filed over the weekend if you wanted to maximize your humph.

Writing for Wired and nailing that tried-and-true formula, Arielle Pardes complained that “Apple’s restrictions aren’t helping tech addiction.” (Tip o’ the antlers to Alter Eggo.)

Pundits everywhere agree that tech addiction is a very serious real actual thing even though there’s quite a bit of evidence that it’s just another made-up piece of pseudo-science for them to rail against for a while before moving on to the next outrage-du-jour.

Apple puts privacy and security foremost in iOS 12, macOS Mojave

Macworld - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 07:30

As news stories show nearly every day, there’s a never-ending barrage of attempts to break into our online accounts, steal identities and cash, and hijack computers and mobile devices to use as bots in vast online armies. In the just-announced updates to iOS and macOS, Apple has tightened the security screws but also makes it easier for its users to engage in the best behavior with less pain.

Apple also attacked some privacy exploits and reduced the ability of third parties to track people even further than in previous releases.

Screen Time in iOS 12 shows how badly the iPad needs user accounts

Macworld - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 06:30

As a parent whose 6-year-old just got into a couple of ridiculously time-sucking iPad games, I welcomed the announcement of the new Screen Time feature coming to iOS 12.

But, unfortunately, Screen Time doesn’t account for a basic reality: Plenty of families share an iPad.

Without user accounts in iOS, the activity reports and time-limiting features in Screen Time just won’t work as intended if multiple people in a household share any one device. The Mac has user accounts and fast-account switching, but iOS does not. Amazon’s FreeTime Unlimited service lets parents give different permissions to each kid, and track the activities of each individual separately, but I’m not holding my breath for Apple to follow suit.

11 fantastic iOS 12 features that didn't make the WWDC keynote

Macworld - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 06:00

iOS 12 was certainly the star of yesterday's WWDC keynote. From performance improvements to ARKit 2.0 and group FaceTime calls, the next version of Apple's mobile OS is so jam-packed with features that Apple couldn't fit all of them in the hour it carved out for the iOS 12 demo. Here are 11 awesome features Apple didn't talk about that you need to know.

FaceTime integration with Messages

While FaceTime and Messages will still be separate apps in iOS 12, they're getting much tighter integration. Instead of jumping over to FaceTime when you want to switch from typing to chatting, you'll be able to start a group FaceTime message right from a group Messages conversation. You'll also be able to see and join active calls from your conversation list or inside existing conversations.

Iran tells UN of plan to enrich uranium in response to US withdrawal from nuclear deal

Top Stories - Tue, 06/05/2018 - 04:33

A war of words between Israel and Iran escalated on Tuesday after Tehran informed the UN’s nuclear watchdog it was beginning the process of increasing its capacity to enrich uranium. Yisrael Katz, Israel's intelligence minister, called for a military coalition against Iran if the Islamic Republic was to defy the world powers who signed a nuclear deal with Iran. "If the Iranians don't surrender now, and try to return" to unsupervised uranium enrichment, "there should be a clear statement by the President of the United States and all of the Western coalition," he said. The message should be that "if the Iranians return" to enriching uranium that could enable them to build a nuclear bomb, "a military coalition will be formed against them," Mr Katz told Israeli public radio. Technicians of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation in a control room supervise resumption of activities at the Uranium Conversion Facility in Isfahan, Iran Credit: Reuters Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's ultimate authority, said on Monday he had ordered preparations to increase uranium enrichment capacity if a 2015 nuclear deal falls apart after the US withdrawal from it last month. Under the agreement with the US, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China, Iran strictly limited uranium enrichment capacity to satisfy the powers that it could not be used to develop atomic bombs. In return the Islamic Republic saw a partial lifting of US and international sanctions. Tehran is permitted to increase its enrichment efficiency by the end of the next decade just before the deal is set to expire. But speeding up preparations now could allow Iran to ramp up production more quickly after that date.  Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s atomic energy organisation, said work had begun on the infrastructure for building advanced centrifuges at Natanz facility. Mr Salehi said they would remain within the framework of the 2015 accord but that it marked an increase in the pace of the nuclear programme. Diplomats told the Telegraph they viewed it as a “warning shot” to Europe. “Following a first assessment, the announced steps per se are not a violation of the JCPOA (the acronym for the accord),” said a spokesman for Federica Mogherini, European Union policy chief. “However, at this particularly critical juncture, they will not contribute to build confidence in the nature of the Iranian nuclear programme.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joint press conference in Berlin Credit: Getty Iranian authorities have said that if the European countries failed to keep the pact alive, Tehran had several options, including resuming its 20 percent uranium enrichment.  Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, yesterday began a three-tour of Europe with the aim of convincing the signoratories to back out of the accord and support his push for tighter measures on Tehran. During a meeting with Angela Merkel, Germany's chancellor, in Berlin she said that while she had concerns about the 2015 deal it remained the best option available to prevent an arms race in the region.  Mr Netanyahu is to meet Emmanuel Macron, France's president, in Paris, later today and Theresa May tomorrow.

U.S. appeals against ruling that Trump could not block Twitter followers

By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday it would appeal against a federal judge's ruling that President Donald Trump may not legally block Twitter users from his account on the social media platform based on their political views, according to a court filing. Jameel Jaffer, a lawyer for the seven plaintiffs who sued, said the @realDonaldTrump account had unblocked the seven plaintiffs on Monday. "We're pleased that the White House unblocked our clients from the President's Twitter account but disappointed that the government intends to appeal the district court's thoughtful and well-supported ruling," Jaffer said in an email.
