We've been waiting for some time for a new iPad, and Apple surprised us all a few days ago by announcing just that. So, if you're looking for somewhere to pre-order your new iPad 9.7, you're in the right place. It's good news all around, as you won't have to wait long for the new iPad 9.7, and you won't even have to spend as much as you think (which makes a change for Apple, right?). Apple is taking pre-orders for the new iPad 9.7 today , with stock expected to ship out next week. The price is incredibly cheap for a new Apple product and considerably cheaper than the 9.7-inch iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro 9.7-inch. In the US, pre-orders for the 32GB model start at $329, compared to 339 in the UK. That's seriously cheap for a new iPad. It's $70/40 cheaper than the best iPad Air 2 deal today and the new iPad 9.7 is essentially an iPad Air 3 in all but name.

What, then, separates the Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless from the mass of other cable-free in-ear audio enablers that are popping up? Weve been living with them to find out. Design Headphones are becoming as much design-led fashion accessories as they are suppliers of solid audio performances. Sadly, Sennheiser clearly didnt get that memo. The HD1 In-Ear Wireless arent ugly bits of kit, but neither are they the most stylish option going. Unlike the Beats X which offer a cool, minimalist finish or the Bose QC30 s that bring a certain refined elegance to the table, the HD1s are just a bit businessman boring. Chunky black plastic ends host all the inner workings and protrude from a leather neck band. Its a design thats pleasingly understated, yes, but cant shake the air of being designed with mid-40s accountant in mind.

Smartwatches, VR headsets and Bluetooth speakers can all take a back seat, wireless in-ear headphones are the latest must-own tech accessory. With smartphones moving away from classic cabled connections, the need to cut the cords is growing. That's where the 169.99 Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless headphones come in, as the last pair of audio enablers to tick all the right cable-cutting boxes, with Bluetooth 4.1 and aptX abilities making it easier to shun the traditional 3.5mm audio jack. These are part of a new breed of wireless in-ear headphones, however. Ones untroubled by degraded sound, latency issues and woeful battery life. Theyre also a pair of headphones that are entering an increasingly crowded market, with this neckband style design having been adopted by everyone from Bose and Beats to Samsung and LG. What, then, separates the Sennheiser Momentum In-Ear Wireless from the mass of other cable-free in-ear audio enablers that are popping up? Weve been living with them to find out.

Marketing tools are essential for streamlining and automating the more arduous aspects of the process. The only issue is that you’ve got to actually learn how to use them. You have to learn their capabilities, their limitations as well as their nuances. It’s no biggie if you’re tech-inclined. But what if you’re not so tech-savvy? Using marketing tools can nearly negate the purpose if it’s a struggle just to figure them out. That's why I compiled a list of 26 marketing tools for non-tech-savvy marketers. Each one is practical and user-friendly and requires a minimal learning curve. Many are even free. Content creation 1. WordPress Let’s start with the absolute basics: WordPress. You could consider it to be the “OG” of content management systems. As of late 2015, it powered 25% of the world’s websites. And it’s very likely that number is even bigger today.

On a late-night dogwalk I passed this display table in the window of a store on Crosby Street. I was struck by the unusual design of the legs, which flare out in both the X- and Y-axes to meet the apron: In other words, surface B wraps around to blend into surface C in the crude sketch below, which was what I envisioned in my head as I was looking at the table. There's two sketches because I wasn't sure what surface A would look like if the top were removed. To find out, I crouched down to get a look from underneath and found a couple of surprises: Surprise #1. The plywood corner braces. No metal hardware here, just simple strips and triangles. You can see the dots where they've been attached with a pin nailer. I expected something more elegant, so here was a reminder that if the customer's never gonna see it, it doesn't matter what they look like.

Could you imagine spending your entire life forced into a confined, dark space, only to then be brutally murdered, all to feed or entertain another species? Well, this is the sad reality for millions of animals who are locked in factory farming facilities all over the world. Bandit the bull would have had the same fate as these animals had it not been for Austrian animal sanctuary Gut Aiderbichl. The sanctuary captured Bandit's journey to freedom, giving viewers a glimpse at what his life looked like prior to his release, and how he reacted when finally set free. If you've never seen a cow jump for joy and dance, you're in for a treat! This Bull's Journey to Freedom Bandit had spent his entire life trapped in a tiny stable, locked to a pole with no space to move. This was his reality until the sanctuary rescued him. These images depict the bulls' living conditions: You can watch the full video of his rescue and then his reaction to freedom below: Although the video is undeniably heart-warming, it's interesting to note the juxtaposition between the trapped bulls and the freed bull, Bandit.

The delicate dance between satire and offense makes the parades history a complicated one, knotted with the authority of ancient tradition (the original Mummers date back to ancient Egypt) and modern interpretation. Modicas portraits artfully express this complexity. For me, it's finding all the goodness and beauty in a situation which is not entirely good and beautiful. And of course, goodness and beauty are completely subjective, she tells TIME. Mike Arrison Andrea Modica photographs a member of the Wenche brigade during the annual Mummers parade. Ultimately, Modica is not really interested in the parade itself; Ive never been a fan of the circus, she says. But she is interested in the Wenches; one of the five divisions within the parade others include the Comic and the Fancy. This division essentially consists of men in drag, many of whom still have costumes their grandfathers and great-grandfathers wore.

The House Freedom Caucus – a politically conservative group of House members – kept the bill from the votes required for passage, arguing that Trump and Ryan’s proposal violates limited government principles by keeping too many key provisions of President Obama’s health care plan. “We’re certainly trying to get to yes, but indeed, we've made very reasonable requests and we're hopeful that those reasonable requests will be listened to and ultimately agreed to,” Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows told reporters after a last-minute White House meeting to negotiate with Trump. Trump has repeatedly warned caucus members they could lose big in 2018 mid-term elections if they fail to act in support of his bill. “The president is correct – if Republicans fail to pass this bill, it will be a problem for them. The problem is passing the bill creates a problem for them as well,” Hudak said.

of Birmingham and its Muslim community as if it's a hotbed of terrorism. This is incorrect. Since 2013 we've had a drastic fall of the number of convictions in this city. It's about time the media and other organisations looking at terrorism in Birmingham realise the Muslim community has done an immense amount of work over the last three or four years. In concrete terms, what do you think the government or the authorities in general can do.

When my Snugs arrived, I wore them for two hours straight and eventually took them out because they became uncomfortable and sore. This is totally normal for a first-time wearer. I’ve now been wearing the Snugs for about three weeks and discomfort is no longer an issue. Snugs earphones review: Sound quality Snugs are technically just the mould that goes into your ear, so the sound quality will depend on the earphones you have driving them. I opted for the Snugs Only product and fitted them to the SoundMAGIC E10S earphones and can honestly say I’ve never heard sound as intimate as this before. The level of detail that the E10S fitted with Snugs Earphones achieves is very special. Subtle tones that get lost in regular earphones cut through with refreshing clarity here. The best way I can think to describe this is by likening it to hearing a voice come clearly through the Whispering Gallery on a busy day at St Paul’s Cathedral.

It's not even clear where it's from, but alongside various stories about Trump's healthcare legislation woes, it's been on the BBC News homepage for what, two days now ? For this morning's one, they've started zooming into it . By tomorrow, if the legislation has yet to pass, we'll be inside his weird angry tired mouth. If someone could figure out the source (it doesn't seem to be Reuters) that would be fabulous.
