Apple ”Cuts Production Of Its iPhone 13 After Demand Slumped”

Published

on

Tech company Apple Inc., has reportedly cut production of the iPhone 13 after the demand for the device slumped.

According to Mail Online, many shoppers who originally wanted the phone, the most expensive model at $1,599, are said to have given up as ongoing supply chain issues lead to shortages.

Others are said to be holding out for the iPhone 14. It will debut in fall 2022, and will likely have far more dramatic updates than the 13, which is a tweaked version of the 2020 iPhone 12.

Apple had reportedly cut its goal for the year by as many as 10 million units, down from their target of 90 million, due to a global chip shortage. They had hoped to ramp up production again next year due to the current global supply chain crisis.

The company, however, have informed vendors that the orders look unlikely.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said in October that the supply chain crisis, which had affected the chip shortage, had cost the company $6 billion in sales in the fourth quarter.

‘We’re doing everything we can do to get more (chips) and also everything we can do operationally to make sure we’re moving just as fast as possible,’ Cook had told Reuters.

Cook also said he expected a year-over-growth for Apple for the quarter ending in December. Analysts had expected a growth of 7.4 percent to $119.7 billion.

‘We’re projecting very solid demand growth year over year,’ Cook said. ‘But we are also predicting that we’re going to be short of demand by larger than $6 billion.’

Meta Announces New Privacy Improvements For WhatsApp

Published

on

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has announced that WhatsApp will be getting several new features to boost user privacy. The capabilities include being able to exit group chats without notifying everyone, controlling who can see your online, and preventing screenshots of view once messages.

In his post, the CEO said that Meta was rolling out the features to make messages as private and secure as face-to-face conversations. He didn’t state when the functionalities would be arriving, but BBC News reports that they’d be arriving this month. Apparently, there will be a global campaign to highlight the features, starting in the UK.

It’s interesting to see the UK being named as one of the first places where the advertising campaign will begin in. Just last month, the home secretary, Priti Patel, was essentially criticizing the use of encryption in WhatsApp and other messenger apps. She claims that encryption is stymieing efforts by authorities to clamp down on harmful content.

WhatsApp product head, Ami Vora, said that WhatsApp was the largest messenger platform to offer these types of privacy protections and described it as the most secure place to have private conversations. For several years now, WhatsApp has integrated simple-to-use encryption technologies that are on by default.

“I’m a boy” : 4-year-old announces in transgender reveal party, sparking debate online

Published

A 4-year-old biologically female child in Canada has decided to identify as a boy, and the child’s transgender reveal party during a pride parade in Vancouver has sparked a debate on social media.

Charlie Danger Lloyd’s mother said her child has been expressing he is a boy since he was ‘very young.’

The mum claims her child would repeatedly tell the family “I’m a boy!” and that “he” was “growing to look just like daddy” when he was as young as two years old.

In a video posted online, Charlie is seen revealing his new gender at the Vancouver Pride Parade by firing off a confetti cannon filled with blue smoke with the help of his grandmother.

The video has sparked mixed reactions.

Online critics called the gender reveal “child abuse” and “sickening.” Some went as far as to demand that Charlie’s mom be jailed.

But Charlie’s mum, Alaina Bourrel, insists she is doing what she feels is best for Charlie. She added that his confidence and happiness have shot sky-high following a simple wardrobe change and haircut.

"I

Bourrel told the South West News Service: “We are four months since he began his social transition now.

“He is still a normal kid that does completely normal little kid things like play with Lego, uses his creativity and learns to ride his bike.

“His choices were not questioned and he was congratulated and everyone began using new pronouns. We are so lucky to have the circle that we do.”

Faeces mixed with weed and tramadol makes us high : Drug Addict reveals

Published

A 47-year-old drug addict has disclosed that he and his friends occasionally inhale dried human and animal poo laced with marijuana and tramadol.

According to Narcotics Control Commission (NCC) officials, more young people are smoking dry faeces and soaking used sanitary pads to drink for energy.

NCC representatives in Ghana have expressed regret over the tragic event and asked for coordinated efforts to address the issue head-on.

The addict identified as Bernard Tuffour revealed during an interview that some people who inhale dry faeces do so “with marijuana while others just smoke the dried” faeces.

He claims that “those who smoke with dried faeces have the belief that they can never exist without the dried faeces”

“Those who are addicted to smoking dried faeces occasionally go to the public toilet to acquire human excreta and dry it for a few days before they smoke it,” Bernard Tuffour said when explaining how some individuals smoke-dried faeces.

Bernard Tuffour who has been addicted to drugs for 31 years explained that “Those who smoke-dried faeces are in a critical situation and only God can save them from that situation”

“I have never smoked dried faeces but I know some of my friends who do. I feel worried when I see them in that condition because they are going through a lot” he added.

“As I said some of them mix the dried faeces with weed while others mix it with tramadol. Dry the faeces for 5 to 6 days to make sure it is well dried. They will package the dried faeces like packaging weed then they smoke it. You will feel sorry if you see them engaging in that act”
