Is Apple Launching A New iPhone

I am not too sure how much faith to put in The Daily Mail, the tabloid newspaper of 'choice' here in the UK... 

but if they are right, then Apple is about to release its biggest phone ever.  Apple's annual big reveal show is about a month away now, and there is considerable buzz that Apple is about to relase a 6.5" phone (that's a lot bigger than the iPhoneX, which measures 5.5"). It's called, or so the Daily Mail says, the D33. 

The Daily Mail is also saying that this is iPhoneXI (or 11, for those who are not so good with Roman numerals and have been calling the X the EX, like my Ex wife). 

However, if the Mail is to be believed, the phone will have an edge to edge screen,which would make for some pretty incredible video. The larger size would also make video editing on the phone (I like iMovie) a bit easier to manage. 

The XI, will, in theory, come in several colors (or colours as we say here) - I could care less.  But it is also touted to have a much longer battery life, which would be a major improvement. According to The Daily Mail, the batter is touted to last 40% longer. 

It's also supposed to have an upgraded camera. (I think the camera on the X is pretty good already, but who knows). 

In any event, the Apple unveiling is scheduled for September 12th, so we'll all know by then.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
