Though this time the camera sits flush with the rear of the phone, whereas on the G5 it sticks out slightly. The design largely lines up with earlier leaks and rumors, though given the muted response to the design of the G5 it seems odd that LG wouldnt rethink things for the LG G6. We should know the truth very soon, as LG is expected to announce the G6 at its MWC 2017 press conference on February 26. The Huawei P10 will probably be announced on the same day

Fourth, more than establishing dangerous precedents, the Obama administration also won the legal cover to punish journalists publishing stories using leaked documents, including jailing them for not complying with subpoenas to reveal sources of the leaks, that can now be exploited by the next government. Since launching his campaign Trump has repeatedly shocked his audience by relying on a pugnacious style of politics and inflammatory narratives now unusual in presidential campaigns. Unfortunately, this has often resulted in his proposals also being treated as unparalleled. As a more careful reading of the past eight years reveals, however, some of the most unsettling parts of Trump's agenda are either borrowed from or congruous with the policies of the Obama administration and reflect a prevailing policy consensus. For those looking to resistant the next president this creates the formidable challenge of de-normalizing the very policies they have so far incorrectly assumed must only be prevented from taking root.

Manning, a transgender woman whose first name was Bradley at the time, was a low-level intelligence analyst in the Army deployed to Iraq when she copied 750,000 pages of military documents and videos. She sent the information to WikiLeaks, which subsequently published the sensitive information for the public to see. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday that Manning's actions were damaging to national security, but later added that they were not as severe as Edward Snowden's leaks. Obama was asked about the Manning commutation on Wednesday during his final press briefing, where he defended his decision. The sentence that she received was very disproportionaldisproportionate relative to what other leakers had received, Obama said. It made sense to commute, and not pardon, her sentence. I feel very comfortable that justice has been served and that a message has still been sent that when it comes to our national security, that whenever possible, we need for people who may have legitimate concerns .

The iPad Air 2 launched all the way back in October 2014, which is enough to make us wonder whether theres going to be an iPad Air 3 at all, especially now Apple seems more focused on its newer iPad Pro range. But there's still room for an Air 3 in the tablet arena. The Pro range in both name and price is clearly aimed at the upper end of the market, while Apple could position the iPad Air 3 as a more affordable option. And there is also some evidence that thats exactly what Apple has planned, with talk in some circles of a new, but not quite cutting-edge, 9.7-inch iPad on the way. Weve collected all the news and rumors about the slate thats likely to be the iPad Air 3, so if youre looking for an upgrade to your aging iPad youve come to the right place. Cut to the chase What is it? An overdue entry in Apple's iPad Air range When is it out? Possibly early 2017 What will it cost? Likely around $499/399/AU$699 iPad Air 3 release date Hottest leaks: An early 2017 launch The iPad Air 3, if it launches at all, will probably land alongside the iPad Pro 2 , which means we could see it in the next few months.

Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/flickr As Donald J. Trump' bizzaro world fantasy becomes our frightening reality, the President-elect has gone out of his way to remind us that the rules of administrations past no longer apply. Since the election, Trump has seized every opportunity to attack legitimate news sources like the New York Times and CNN for "fake news," all while blithely sidestepping mountains of evidence that Russia had an extensive role in his victory. Which is why The Donald's nominee for CIA director Mike Pompeo struck such an unexpectedly sane departure from the PEOTUS' line when he told senators at his confirmation that he would pursue a tougher line towards Moscow. Rather than poo-pooing charges that Moscow has been at least complicit in the plethora of leaks and hacks perpetrated in the run-up to the election, the Kansas Republican led with criticism of the Russian government, rightly dubbing them "sophisticated adversaries" against the U.

We may be just a few weeks away from seeing Sonys next flagship phone as it's sent out invites for a MWC 2017 press conference on Monday, February 27. While the invite doesnt give anything away with teasing graphics or words it simply states youre invited to see the latest innovations we can be relatively sure itll have a smartphone or two up its sleeve. The Sony Xperia X2 is the biggest name of the rumored handsets to potentially make an appearance at this event, and it would see the Japanese firm continue its six month cycle of flagship launches. The invite from Sony for its MWC 2017 press conference Xperia incoming Current leaks suggest the Sony Xperia X2 will have a 5 or 5.2-inch full HD display while the design will remain largely the same as the current X series of handsets.

President Obama did a compassionate and good deed in commuting Chelsea Manning s 35-year sentencethe longest by far for leaking U.S. government secrets to anyone, for any reason. Manning has suffered torture, prolonged solitary confinement (as a person at risk of suicide) and a constant struggle to obtain appropriate, affirming treatment for gender dysphoria in the all-male Fort Leavenworth military prison. Mannings disclosures to WikiLeaks in 2010 were voluminous, but she had no chance to argue at her trial that they were in the public interest or exposed wrongdoing, and the government never had to prove that the leaks did serious harm. (It still hasnt.) Thats because the benefit/harm question is irrelevant to the antiquated 1917 Espionage Act, which was designed to punish people who leaked government secrets to a foreign government, not to the media.

“First, Ukraine needs to understand what objects must be under cyber guard,” Townsend told the Kyiv Post. “It’s pointless to hack us for information leaks, as we are pretty open to the world. But our government should realize there is war on, and must pay constant attention to protecting infrastructure objects and data that are important for the military and in politics.” While Russian hackers target utilities and airports, Ukrainian hackers are fighting back by stealing information that can discredit the Kremlin. For instance, Cyber Alliance in October leaked the e-mails of Vladislav Surkov, a top aide of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Some of the messages indicated the Kremlin was closely involved in directing the activities of armed groups that have seized control in parts of Ukraine’s Donbas region. Hacker for hire Rock said shopping for a hacker is like getting a haircut some people will charge $10 for a haircut, and some $240.

AMONG other things, the start of Donald Trump’s presidency this week heralds a collision between campaigning rhetoric and legislative and economic reality. What follows will be a learning experience for all, it is fair to say. Though not perhaps the most consequential of the looming reality checks, the outcome of a brewing debate over a proposed border-adjusted tax plan could prove a taste of things to come. As Mr Trump and his Congress work to make policy, there are many ways for things to go awry. Both Mr Trump and congressional Republicans are keen to cut taxes on corporations. America’s inefficient corporate-tax system has remarkably high rates but leaks like a sieve, yielding a pitiful tax take (see chart). As a solution, Mr Trump favours a large cut in the corporate-tax rate, from 35% to 15%, and a chance for companies to repatriate foreign profits at a tax rate of 10%.

Thanks to its no logs policy, PureVPN is a winner on the privacy front, and in terms of protocols theres OpenVPN, L2TP/IPSec, PPTP, SSTP, and IKEv2. One downside, however, is that the services Secure DNS feature, which is supposed to prevent DNS leaks, didnt work for us. There is no free trial so youll have to choose from three existing price plans that come with a 7-day money-back guarantee. The obvious winner is the 2-year plan, which is superb value for money but currently a time-limited offer.
