This is by far the BIGGEST story of the month... maybe year.

The WAR and breakdown between China and USA has now begun officially.

This is going to get bad.

And to think these are embedded in electronic devices we have been buying for how long?

Will our Nuclear Power Plants start to fail?

Will the electrical grid begin to falter?

Will the root servers of the Internet be taken down? How long would that take to recover?

      OS 11 is available, officially, today. It's coming to every iPhone and iPad made in the past few years, and chances are, you're going to upgrade. When you install it on your iPhone, you'll find that some things are very different than what you're used to, but the core of how you get around and experience the OS will be the same. For example: the Control Center is wildly different and notifications have changed slightly, but you still have that comfortable (and comforting) grid of apps on the home screen. A lot is new, but not so much that you can't recognize it.
      The iPad is a different story. That's where Apple has made the most radical changes to the way you open and manage your apps. Apple has introduced an app dock that's available no matter what you're doing with a quick swipe up, so you can get to your most-important apps quicker. It's also changed the way that multitasking works, giving you more flexibility with split-screen apps. And you can now drag and drop content between apps, a feature that takes some finger Jiu Jitsu, but is remarkably powerful once you get used to it.

      Experiment talking to apple about JW app
      I was curious what would happen if I did a web chat and talked to Apple about the JW IOS app. So it went like this:
      • Hello. I would like to report an offensive app I found today in the IOS store
      • 1:17 PM It links to literature by the organizations web site that is anti gay. . So the organizations app is a portal to their many books.

      • It will open a browser to their publications
      • 1:22 PM I gotcha. I understand. I am glad you took some time to let us know. I appreciate that and so does Apple. I will get this up to the folks above me. I thank you a great deal.
      • No problem
      • You are all set on my side. Again, many thanks. Thank you for being the best part of Apple!
      That is all. I have no idea if the info will really be seen by higher ups . But that was how it went.

      I heard on the radio that AWS will no longer be using Intel chips exclusively for its cloud services.
      This could end up being a BIG deal down the road.

      After charming the crowd at its annual conference for cloud-lovers (any nephologists in the house?), Amazon (+6.09%) got some bullish reviews. One Jefferies analyst said its Amazon Web Services cloud business could be worth $350 billion by 2022.

      The U.S. Supreme Court seemed open to the idea of allowing iPhone users to proceed with an antitrust suit against Apple. At question here is whether the company's App Store holds an illegal monopoly.

      Jeff Bezos first named the company as Cadabra, after the magic slogan “Abra-Cadabra”. When he first mentioned this to his lawyer over the phone, his lawyer misheard it as “Cadaver ???” . Bezos knew right then, that the name would not stick.
      Bezos had the customer-centric approach to the business, right from the start. So, he had proposed to change the name to “Relentless Inc”, a way of saying that the company would be relentless in its approach to customer satisfaction. In 1994, the company’s then de-facto CTO was Shel Kaphan. He was not very amused by the proposal. So, Bezos continued to look for options for the company name.
      In the 1990s, the number of websites were finite, and countable by humans. The websites were sorted alphabetically on the “internet directory” of those days. After a bunch of research, Bezos settled on Amazon Inc for two reasons -
      Amazon river has the largest collection of flora and fauna in the world. Amazon Inc will represent the largest collection of retail items on the internet Amazon-dot-com will appear in the first pages of the internet directory, making it easier to attract users and customers.

      Some Amazon customers received an email from the company telling them their names and emails had been exposed due to a "technical error." Several customers shared the emails on social media Wednesday. Amazon said the problem was resolved, but did not provide clarity on how many users were affected nor for how long. In the email to affected customers, Amazon said it was unnecessary to reset passwords since it was "not a result of anything you have done."

      A handful of apps are no longer supported on the Apple Watch, according to a report by Apple Insider. Major apps like Google Maps, Amazon, and eBay appear to have quietly abandoned the Apple Watch App Store, without giving a heads-up or providing any explanation to users.
      AI reports that Google pulled support for its Maps app on watchOS a few weeks ago, while recent updates to the Amazon and eBay apps no longer reference support for the Apple Watch. Other affected apps include Target (the main one, not its coupon app Cartwheel) and TripAdvisor. A TripAdvisor thread dating back to February questioned the changes, but users said they emailed technical support and received no response.

      SAN FRANCISCO — Travis Kalanick, the chief executive of Uber, visited Apple’s headquarters in early 2015 to meet with Timothy D. Cook, who runs the iPhone maker. It was a session that Mr. Kalanick was dreading.
      For months, Mr. Kalanick had pulled a fast one on Apple by directing his employees to help camouflage the ride-hailing app from Apple’s engineers. The reason? So Apple would not find out that Uber had been secretly identifying and tagging iPhones even after its app had been deleted and the devices erased — a fraud detection maneuver that violated Apple’s privacy guidelines.
      But Apple was onto the deception, and when Mr. Kalanick arrived at the midafternoon meeting sporting his favorite pair of bright red sneakers and hot-pink socks, Mr. Cook was prepared. “So, I’ve heard you’ve been breaking some of our rules,” Mr. Cook said in his calm, Southern tone. Stop the trickery, Mr. Cook then demanded, or Uber’s app would be kicked out of Apple’s App Store.
      For Mr. Kalanick, the moment was fraught with tension. If Uber’s app was yanked from the App Store, it would lose access to millions of iPhone customers — essentially destroying the ride-hailing company’s business. So Mr. Kalanick acceded.
      In a quest to build Uber into the world’s dominant ride-hailing entity, Mr. Kalanick has openly disregarded many rules and norms, backing down only when caught or cornered. He has flouted transportation and safety regulations, bucked against entrenched competitors and capitalized on legal loopholes and gray areas to gain a business advantage. In the process, Mr. Kalanick has helped create a new transportation industry, with Uber spreading to more than 70 countries and gaining a valuation of nearly $70 billion, and its business continues to grow.

      Brothers and sisters, this is just a warm up for all of us.  Do not always believe in what you hear. (Read the article:http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2013923)
       
      Follow the proper channel and remember the moral lesson of 1Ki 13:11-24.  If there's anything that the GB needs us to know, there will be a letter to the elders.
       
      By doing so, we don't spread any rumours because if we do, we are actually going against the spirit.
       
      Note:  we always see many asking if there were any letters or bethel 'morning worship' announcements, stating not to mention in social media.

      Washington (CNN)Sen. John McCain said Russian election-related hacks threaten to "destroy democracy" and faulted the American response as "totally paralyzed."
      McCain, the Arizona Republican who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, again called for a select committee to investigate the CIA's finding that Russia hacked Democrats' emails in a bid to help President-elect Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton.
      "This is the sign of a possible unraveling of the world order that was established after World War II, which has made one of the most peaceful periods in the history of the world," McCain told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union." "We're starting to see the strains and the unraveling of it, and that is because of the absolute failure of American leadership."
      "When America doesn't lead, a lot of other bad people do," he added.
      McCain's calls so far have been rejected by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who have backed investigations but said they want to see them conducted through already-existing Senate and House committees.
      "This is serious business. If they're able to harm the electoral process, they may destroy democracy, which is based on free and fair elections," he said.
      But McCain said responsibility for cyber-security is spread too broadly today.
      "The responsibilities for cyber is spread over about four different committees in the Senate, and each doing their own thing, frankly, is not going to be the most efficient way of arriving at a conclusion," he said.
      In the interview, McCain spoke about the Russian hacking -- as well as China's seizure of a US underwater drone and the Syrian government's slaughter of the citizens of Aleppo -- in dire terms.
      In making another call for a select committee to investigate Russian hacking, McCain mocked President Barack Obama's statement Friday that he had personally told Russian President Vladimir Putin to "cut it out."
      "We need a select committee. We need to get to the bottom of this. We need to find out exactly what was done and what the implications of the attacks were, especially if they had an effect on our election," McCain said.
      "There's no doubt they were interfering and no doubt it was a cyber-attack. The question now is how much and what damage and what should the United States of America do? And so far, we've been totally paralyzed," he said. "I'm sure that when Vladimir Putin was told quote 'cut it out' unquote, I'm sure that Vladimir Putin immediately stopped all cyber-activities. The truth is, they are hacking every single day."

      A man who used his wife's Facebook account to snoop on her has been charged with a criminal offence.
      Aaron Timothy Barrett, 26, had recently separated from his wife, who then blocked him on Facebook.
      Police said Barrett guessed the password to the woman's Facebook account and unblocked himself on May 13.
      Barrett, a forestry worker of Blenheim, accessed her page to see who she had been contacting and changed her password.
      The following day, Barrett emailed her and threatened her, police said.
      He admitted two charges at the Blenheim District Court on Monday.
      The charges were intentionally accessing a computer system without authorisation, and using a telephone device for the purpose of disturbing the recipient, by sending an email with the intention of causing offence.
      Barrett's lawyer Phil Watson said his client struggled to accept the end of the relationship.
      Barrett was a member of Jehovah's Witnesses, and described the reason for the relationship breakdown as "fornication", Watson said.
      He had since sought anger management counselling and had attended mental health services, Watson said.
      Judge Chris Tuohy said the email threat counted as family violence as it was classed as psychological abuse.
      Barrett had contacted the woman once since charges were laid, breaking the non-contact condition of his bail.
      The woman sought a protection order and Judge Tuohy granted it.
      "I understand how serious it can be when a serious relationship like marriage breaks down. You have to accept that the relationship ended, if she wants to end it. That's just the way things are, and I hope you can get over it," Judge Tuohy said.
      Barrett was convicted and ordered to come up for sentencing if charged with a similar offence.
      "The conviction itself can be a serious consequence, particularly for someone with no convictions."
