Apple registers several new Mac and iPad models in Eurasia • Mac Rumors
Tim Hardwick:
<p>Apple has registered new tablets and Macs with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) this week, indicating that refreshes could be on the horizon. The filings, uncovered by French website Consomac, are legally required for any devices with encryption sold in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Russia.

The five Mac model numbers are A1931, A1932, A1988, A1989 and A1990, indicating two distinct ranges. The last three numbers may relate to expected refreshes for the 13in MacBook Pro (with and without Touch Bar) and the 15in MacBook Pro, while the first two could reference a refreshed 12in MacBook and a potential replacement for the aging MacBook Air, which Apple has been gradually phasing out.

Apple is rumored to be planning to introduce the new entry-level 13in MacBook in the second half of 2018, which would serve as a replacement for the MacBook Air. Details have been scant about the rumored machine, but it could turn out to belong to the 12in MacBook family, and the model numbers A1931 and A1932 potentially reflect this.

It's not known what the rumored 13in MacBook would be priced at, but the MacBook Air sells for $999, a price point Apple has thus far been unable to match with the 12in MacBook and the MacBook Pro. </p>


Expected before September, or at least before the Mojave release. The keyboard teardown on those new models will be something to see.

Swamp Drained Again as Border Patrol Agent Busted by DOJ in Child Porn Sting
A major child pornographic distribution sting carried out by the Department of Justice has taken down an agent with the Customs and Border Protection in which US Attorney's Office for the Northern District of New York has now filed charges.

54-year-old Keith E. Hook of Oswego, New York was charged via a federal complaint about what the US Attorney's Office says is the distribution of dozens of child pornography videos and images during the period of a week-long investigation into the pedophile Border Patrol agent.

Hook transmitted the illicit child pornographic images and videos of prepubescent children between April 30th and May 4th through Apple iMessage and Kik Messenger, after a forensic review of the electronic devices belonging to the pedophile Border Patrol agent were found to contain 34 illicit files of child pornography.

High Hitler: how Nazi drug abuse steered the course of history | Books | The Guardian
“He is all genius and body,” reported one of his allies in 1930. “And he mortifies that body in a way that would shock people like us! He doesn’t drink, he practically only eats vegetables, and he doesn’t touch women.” No wonder that when the Nazis seized power in 1933, “seductive poisons” were immediately outlawed. In the years that followed, drug users would be deemed “criminally insane”; some would be killed by the state using a lethal injection; others would be sent to concentration camps. Drug use also began to be associated with Jews. The Nazi party’s office of racial purity claimed that the Jewish character was essentially drug-dependent. Both needed to be eradicated from Germany.
