Smaller form factor. Better battery life. And more secure privacy controls. Those are some of the highlights of your responses to our question – what new features do you want to see in the next iPhone? Apple will unveil its 2019-2020 lineup Tuesday at a press event at its campus in Cupertino, with models that aren't expected to be radically designed. Here's what some iPhone customers would love to see: —"Longer battery life, smaller models (it used to fit in my pocket – those days long over), less expensive models, more easily accessed privacy widget so you can switch off all microphone and camera access on

Apple has completely lost its iconic reputation as the top innovator in the smartphone field. No more Jobs. No more all-night campouts /lines waiting for the next model. They've squandered the legacy Jobs left. And I no longer have an iPhone because I refuse to pay a premium laptop price for a smartphone. If they want me back, get rid of the tall, skinny version with the $1,000+ pricetag. Give me the short, stubby version with a 2-day battery built in (instead of forcing me to buy a fat battery case to put it in) and a $500 pricetag, and I'll be back again.

Apple has totally been left behind in the innovation battle, and they don't see it. iPhones are clunky out of date devices, even the newest most expensive ones. They will lose their shirt if they go smaller, look at how many Notes Samsung sells. My brand new Samsung A20 is a better phone in every way than the newest $1000+ iPhone, and it cost $250. What people want is features at a fair price.

I am quite happy with the 4S I inherited when DH upgraded his phone. It is the right size, I can use it for phone calls and texting. I have addresses and phone numbers handy. My favorite phone was a handsome little Samsung clamshell in brushed aluminum finish. I used it only as a telephone. Felt good in the hand, had buttons instead of touchpad, slipped into any pocket, any handbag.

A few months ago I turned in my iphone 7 plus. The Verizon Rep talked me into a 10. Fortunately they allow you to have it for a week and if you don't like it you can bring it back. That't exactly what I did. HATED that phone. No HOME Button! I exchanged it for an 8 plus and I love it! I will hang on to it until they come up with a new phone with a Home Button, or I will be shopping for a phone than Iphone.

Tomorrow is the official release date of Justice Gorsuch’s new book, A Republic, If You Can Keep It, a collection of the Justice’s articles, speeches, and opinions. I’ve bounced around the book over the past couple of weeks—I very much enjoyed the excellent piece on “Originalism and the Constitution” I just read—and highly recommend it both as an interesting account of Justice Gorsuch’s understanding of the Constitution and the judicial role and a window into the appealing character and personality of Justice Scalia’s successor. Disclosure: The book has the same publisher (Crown Forum) and editor as the two books of Justice Scalia’s works that I’ve already co-edited—Scalia Speaks

DHS Drafts Plan to Curb Work
Permits for Illegal Migrants

The Department of Homeland Security is discarding a 1994 rule which says officials must provide work permits to asylum seekers within 30 days of their request. The tighter curbs on work permits may reduce the huge flow of low wage foreign migrants into U.S. blue collar jobs. In turn, the reduced inflow will pressure employers to offer Americans higher wages as they compete for the limited pool of U.S. workers Federal law allows illegal immigrants and economic migrants to ask for asylum — and then to ask for work permits once they have waited at least 150 days for an asylum court hearing.

Tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents, some waving American flags, marched to the U.S. Consulate Sunday, urging Congress to quickly pass legislation providing for U.S. responses to Beijing-instigated rights abuses or attempts to erode the territory’s autonomy. “President Trump, please liberate Hong Kong,” read a large blue banner and numerous posters held by demonstrators, some of whom also sang along to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” piped through loudspeakers. “Resist Beijing! Liberate Hong Kong! Democracy Now!” protesters chanted, alluding to concerns about an erosion of freedoms in the former British colony, which reverted to Chinese rule in 1997 with

Democrats Hand Trump Another Issue 2 replies

During last week’s climate town halls, several Democratic presidential candidates endorsed a carbon tax. It’s an idea Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton shied away from. At Bloomberg Opinion, I argue they had good reasons for keeping their distance. A memo for the Clinton campaign estimated that a carbon tax of $42 per ton on greenhouse-gas emissions would raise annual energy costs by $478 for the average household, and by $268 for the poorest fifth of households. When considering that number, keep in mind another poll finding. In November 2018, the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research ran a survey about climate change that found, in line with other polls, that most Americans

The Trump administration, despite constant criticism at home and overseas, has made the right decision in taking on China. And yet, very few pundits and so-called experts understand Trump’s strategy, the stakes involved and how America will implement it. I can sum up Trump’s China strategy in one word: containment. And considering it brought down Soviet communism for good, Beijing should be shaking in its boots. But let’s step back for a second. This isn’t your father’s version of containment meant to pull back the iron curtain and deliver freedom to hundreds of millions of people. China is clearly not the land of Gorbachev, and it is not a nation that,

Sanford, in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” said he believes the GOP needs to have a conversation about what it means to be a Republican, adding: “We have lost our way.” The former governor, who was also a congressman from 1995 to 2001 and 2013 to 2019, highlighted in particular a need to discuss the country’s ballooning debt and deficits, as well as Trump’s turn toward trade protectionism. “One of the hallmarks of the Republican

Maher criticized the culture that protects people from judging others, especially when it comes to "fat-shaming." Maher said fat-shaming doesn't need to end, it needs to make a comeback. The comedian said shaming and judging are necessary and the first step in reform. "I know this is a controversial thing to say now in today's America but being fat is a bad thing," Maher said.
