A new class action lawsuit filed in California takes aim at an erstwhile iOS battery management tool that allegedly hindered the performance of certain iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and iPhone SE series devices.

Filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the complaint is the latest in a series of lawsuits targeting the so-called “batterygate” fiasco from 2017. The complaint arrives on the same day as a submission deadline for iPhone owners to file claims in a $500 million settlement that was reached earlier this year to rectify identical grievances.

Discovered shortly after the release of iOS 10.2.1, the iPhone throttling issue was traced back to a hardware management tool that was included in iOS to mitigate negative effects of aging iPhone batteries. In particular, the software was designed to thwart unexpected shutdowns suffered by certain iPhone 6 and 6s devices, but was maintained well

AN EDUCATION student belonging to a poor family in Capas town, Tarlac province has sought the help of Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan to get a new laptop for her online classes.

Erica Gracia personally wrote the mayor a letter explaining the economic status of their family.

She said her father used to work as a construction worker while her mother is a house help.

The student told Catacutan that her old phone is no longer reliable.

“Nahihirapan po kasi akong mag-online class dahil sa aking phone. Kailangan po kasi ng bawat oras o minuto ay hindi nakatanggal sa pagkaka-charge,” she said.

Gracia said she needs to use Zoom and Google Meet applications but her phone is not compatible.

The student added she has to borrow gadgets from her cousins and schoolmates just to submit her requirements.

“Minsan ay pinilit kong gamitin ang aking phone kaso nahila ko sa pagkaka-charge at

The two-step is familiar at this point. Wearyingly so. Shaky cellphone video of someone, usually a white someone, imagining that they’ve been elected ruler of the BBQ pits, the dog run, the sidewalk, your house or any admixture of public and private spaces, questioning the videographer’s right to exist within the aforementioned space.

The videographer, often a person of color, more often than not protests, but does so well aware of the footage they’re getting: internet gold in the cinema of BusyBodyism.

Then there is the grand premiere and the consequent climb to the top of the Twitterverse. Public protestation of innocence, denial of racist intent. Apology (possibly) forthcoming. Job loss, not always inevitable, but often probable. And there we have it, the life cycle of modern busybodyism.

It’s a perfect storm of know-nothingism and just a general, always-on level of hostility. Which, incidentally, closely frames our current political life

I spent the week of March 8th through March 12th in Appleton, Wisconsin attending a KUKA Robot Advanced Programming class. This class was held at Fox Valley Technical College. The daily classes consisted of a 1 to 2 hour lecture period followed by a 1 to 2 hour programming problem. The programming was carried out on a KUKA KR 16 robot. We started each morning at 8am and finished at 5pm. The weather could have been worse; it was overcast and rainy everyday with very dense fog every morning.

We started off Monday morning with a review from the basic programming class. It has been a couple of years since I attended the basic programming class so I really enjoyed the review. We covered safety issues like you should never enter into the robot work cell unless the robot controller is in the T1 teach mode. The robot work cell … Read More
