Delays may hit the iPad 2 and iPhone 5

first_imgTuesday 22 February 2011 7:39 pm whatsapp KCS-content APPLE may face production delays that could push back the launch of both its iPad 2 and iPhone 5.The iPad 2 was slated for release in April but people hoping to get their hands on the latest tablet could now have to wait until June. The iPhone 5 was expected in July but could now be delayed until September.However, conflicting sources last night claimed it could be unveiled in California as soon as 2 March.The Cupertino-based firm has never confirmed when either product will be launched but iPhones are generally released in June or July each year.FBR Capital Markets analyst Craig Berger said: “With various casing suppliers and touch suppliers still ramping up, with some chip vendors not having yet received firm iPhone 5 orders, and with other sockets like the image sensor… a September launch is likely.”Berger says he expects Apple to shift 100m iPhones in 2011. He also believes Apple has increased its iPad target from 38m to 45m units.Apple has often struggled to keep up with huge demand for new releases, with previous iterations of the iPad and iPhone sold out globally for months after their launch.The new iPhone is expected to feature near-field communication technology, allowing it to be used as a portable payment device, while the iPad 2 will have front and rear-facing cameras.The news comes as iPad retailers slashed their prices on the first version of the tablet, suggesting they expect the new one to arrive soon. Carphone Warehouse is completely out of stock and Orange has cut its prices to just £99 with a 24-month contract.A new MacBook Pro computer is also expected soon, with Apple staff being asked to sign non-disclosure agreements about a top-secret meeting, believed to be about its launch.Apple will face tough questions from shareholders today about who will succeed boss Steve Jobs, who is thought to be extremely sick.

Texas Instruments disappoints as Japan weighs on production

first_img TEXAS Instruments yesterday warned of slower-than-typical quarterly sales growth as it scrambles to restart production after Japan’s massive earthquake, and said it was unclear when the supply of the silicon and wafers it needs will return to normal.Shares of the chip maker, which plans to buy National Semiconductor Corp for $6.5bn (£4bn) in a bid to expand its hold over a booming analog chip market, slid 2.5 per cent after Texas’ earnings were also hurt by quake-related expenses.Texas is projecting growth of about five per cent for the current quarter, versus a typical nine per cent or more as the company contends with supply shortages as well as damage to its own factories.Texas on Monday forecast second-quarter earnings of 52 cents to 60 cents per share on revenue of $3.41bn to $3.69bn. Analysts had expected revenue of $3.52bn.Its first-quarter earnings also missed Wall Street expectations by a penny. Profit in the first-quarter rose to $666m, or 55 cents per share, from $658m, or 52 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter. Revenue rose six per cent to $3.39bn from $3.21bn, in line with the average analyst expectation for $3.39bn.

Canada – RSF and press freedom groups condemn Ontario court ruling against VICE journalist Ben Makuch

first_img CanadaAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting sources Judicial harassment “The ruling fails to recognize the importance of journalistic source protection and threatens the integrity of journalism in Canada, forcing the essential investigative function of the press to be at the disposal of law enforcement,” says CJFE Executive Director Tom Henheffer. “If journalists cannot protect their sources, then the information they provide will dry up, leaving Canadians uninformed and democracy impoverished.” The coalition urges the government to act quickly to amend the statutory framework governing the use of production orders to offer greater protection against a chilling effect on public interest reporting and free expression. They also urge the RCMP to respect the independence and important societal role of journalists and withdraw its demands for the release of private material and correspondence with sources. “Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is deeply concerned by the recent deterioration of the respect for journalists’ independence and the confidentiality of their sources in Canada,” says Delphine Halgand, RSF North America Director. “Today’s decision is an alarming step in the wrong direction.” In February 2015 the RCMP presented VICE News reporter and host of the series Cyberwar Ben Makuch with a production order to turn over all communications between himself and Farah Shirdon, a source who had allegedly joined ISIS and who was later charged in absentia by the RCMP for terrorism-related activity. The Ontario Superior Court upheld the production order in March 2016, a decision which VICE Media immediately appealed. In October 2016 a coalition of Canadian civil liberties and media organizations, including CJFE, were granted leave by the Ontario Court of Appeal to intervene in support of VICE Media’s appeal. That appeal has now been denied.The protection of sources is a foundational principle of journalism, making crucial reporting like Makuch’s coverage of ISIS possible in the first place. By forcing Makuch to hand over his notes to the RCMP, the decision sets a precedent that could lead to an increase in RCMP requests for journalist notes and communications, making it less likely that sources will be willing to speak with journalists. The RCMP’s production order is a simple fishing expedition which will do little to make Canadians secure while making it harder for Makuch, VICE, and all Canadian journalists to bring stories of national importance to the public. On February 25, 2017, CJFE and a coalition of civil society, media and labour organizations held a national day of action in locations across the country, with creative and peaceful public vigils to reinforce their concern about national security policy, surveillance and freedom of the press. A petition calling on the RCMP to drop the production order against Ben Makuch has also garnered over 4,000 signatures. Statement signed by: Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE), Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the Centre for Free Expression, Unifor, CWA/SCA Canada, Association des Journalistes Indépendants du Québec (AJIQ), FNC-CSN (Fédération nationale des communications), Newspapers Canada, Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, National NewsMedia Council.Makuch’s case is one of many recent incidents that have threatened press freedom in Canada and that have alarmed RSF.Canada is currently ranked 18th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 10 places in 2015. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) joins partner Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) and a coalition of press freedom groups in condemning the Ontario Court of Appeal ruling that VICE News reporter Ben Makuch must hand over all communications between him and an ISIS fighter to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Compassionate leave for pet owners?

first_img TAGSanimal welfareLimerick Feral CatsLimerick Society for Prevention of Cruelty to AnimalsMusic Limerick Email Linkedin NewsLocal NewsCompassionate leave for pet owners?By Alan Jacques – January 23, 2014 876 #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy A PROPOSAL that people whose pets die should get compassionate leave from work, met with mixed reaction in Limerick this week.After an animal welfare spokesman suggested that employees who lose a loved pet should be granted mandatory leave from work, Finola Kelly of the Limerick Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said they were in favour of compassionate leave for pet owners as it was “a very upsetting experience” for families when a beloved pet passes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The Limerick SPCA are of the opinion that if a company is in a position to grant somebody who has lost their pet, compassionate leave, that would most certainly be a very welcome gesture.“However, given the current economic climate, if a business depends greatly on the availability of its staff to survive, then we would understand if they were not in a financial position to grant time off,” said Ms Kelly.Taking a different viewpoint, Mary Mollica of Limerick Feral Cat commented, “We don’t agree with the suggestion. While we fully understand the pain that a pet’s death causes, we believe the focus should be on updating our outdated animal welfare laws.”“Animal welfare volunteers are constantly battling to get justice in cruelty cases and it’s an uphill battle due to the lack of cruelty laws to support them. This is where the focus should be.“The suggestion of compassionate leave does nothing to help the perception of animal welfare groups,” Ms Mollica said.

YESTERYEAR: Winter of 1917-1918

first_imgWinter of 1917-1918 This view of Southeast Second Street was photographed from Main Street, across the street from the Strouse & Bros. store, in the early months of 1918. The men and women are employees of the Evansville Courier, which was located around the corner at 125-127 Main. That winter was one of the most frigid and brutal ever recorded in the Ohio Valley up until that time. In Evansville, a total of nearly 68 inches of snow fell, forcing schools and businesses to close. Transportation became nearly impossible, and when the Ohio River froze, the ice was so hard that pedestrians and wagons could cross over to the other side. A thaw finally set in, and by mid-February, steamboats – still an important mode of transportation – were finally able to leave the city for the first time in two months.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
