For the past few years, Apple has released a redesigned iPhone one year before upgrading its components the year after, giving that model an "S" designation.But in the next two years, Apple appears poised to totally break its typical release cadence, according to a new report from Nikkei.Apple may be planning to release three new iPhones in 2018, according to the report.All three of these new phones will have a kind of screen called OLED, which is a newer, superior technology with darker blacks and better power consumption.But before that, Apple is expected to launch a premium handset later this year that's being called the iPhone 8, for lack of a better term.This model is expected to get a full redesign without a home button, an OLED screen, and a price tag that may top $1000.

Microsoft's browsers last month continued their free fall, again shedding a significant amount of user share, an analytics company reported today.According to data from California-based Net Applications, the user share of Internet Explorer (IE) and Edge -- an estimate of the proportion of the world's personal computer owners who ran those browsers -- fell by nearly a full percentage point in May, ending at a combined 23.2%.May's decline was the largest since January, and could signal a resumption of the precipitous plunge IE and Edge experienced in 2016, when the browsers lost more than 22 percentage points, almost half their total share at the start of that year, and ceded the top spot to Google's Chrome.Microsoft's problem, as it has been since mid-2015, stemmed from two factors: A persistent decline in the demoted-to-legacy IE, which was expected after the launch of Windows 10, and the inability, to put it mildly, for Edge, 10's default browser, to make up the difference.The second was certainly not in Microsoft's projections.In the last 11 months, IE's share dropped by 41%, while Edge's increased by only 11%.

When some people describe the internet, they say it’s a jungle out there.And that’s true, if it’s a jungle where every single creature is lined up and tooled up, ready to attack you the second you arrived.The internet is so full of malicious software that it’s not a case of if an unprotected PC will get infected with something serious; it’s a case of how quickly it’ll happen.Enter Comodo (did you see what we did there?We give up), whose free firewall is designed to make sure your PC doesn’t become a statistic.It blocks malicious software from getting onto your PC, and if there’s already malware on your PC it stops it communicating with faraway villains.

Linus Torvald's release announcement is suitably low-key for something he expected to land without fuss.“Things were quite calm this week, so I really didn't have any real reason to delay the 4.12 release”, he writes.The “just plain big” release has “also nothing particularly odd going on in the tree - it's all just normal development, just more of it that usual.”So much so that even “the whole 4.12 shortlog is much too large to post”.However, he writes, nearly half of the new code is “a lot of new header files” to support AMD's Vega card.“That's almost exactly half the bulk of the patch, in fact, and partly as a result of that the driver side dominates everything else” – at more than 85 percent of the release patch.

During the course of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, the oldest active—and possibly most grueling—endurance race in motorsports, the painful ending suffered by Toyota Gazoo Racing at the famed circuit in 2016 would only continue to ache.Four of the top five lap times during the 24-hour sprint were set by Toyota, including the 8 car doing so late in the race.Although not considered favorites to win, with impressive control and poise, the Toyota Gazoo Racing team’s 5 and 6 cars were in a three-way battle with Porsche’s 1 car for the lead, with the 5 car poised to win on the final lap.The downsized internal combustion engine meant less weight, more efficiency, and, ultimately, fewer pit stops.In the case of the TS050, the Toyota team took the opposite approach and utilized technology from existing everyday commuter cars: regenerative braking.Also, the motor generator units (MGU) of the hybrid system are more compact while the lithium-ion battery has been refined.

Billed by the Xbox team as “the console [that] developers wanted us to build,” the console promises to deliver four times the graphical power of the current Xbox One.And for users without a 4K TV?AMD FreeSync ensures that refresh rate is undetectable by the user while dynamically adapting to mitigate latency and increase the smoothness of gameplay.Instead, the console will feature 12GB of GDDR5 memory (4GB reserved for the operating system) and 326 GB/s bandwidth, far more than most its Xbox One relatives and the PS4 Pro.In early June, Director of programming for Xbox Live Larry Hryb (“Major Nelson”), and Kevin Gammill from the Xbox engineering team talked about decisions behind the dev kit and gave us our first look at the back of the unit.In April, 2017, Windows Central reported a “partial” list of games that will receive 4K support, including a few that haven’t been officially announced.

President Trump lashed out at the Washington Post and Amazon in a Wednesday morning tweet, the day after the newspaper — which is owned by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos — published a story that showed he has fake Time magazine covers at his golf courses.The AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 28, 2017Trump’s attack on both companies isn’t new; he slammed them and Bezos during his presidential campaign as the Post assigned many reporters to cover him.Trump last year said Amazon was “getting away with murder tax-wise,” and that Bezos was holding the Washington Post over politicians’ heads so they “don’t tax Amazon like they should be taxed.”The president’s attack doesn’t make sense because of his claim that Amazon is avoiding paying “internet taxes.” There is no federal internet tax — that’s not fake news.
