DHS vs. Kaspersky Lab: Why the US government is ditching the Russian software giant

The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to ban federal agencies and departments from using products from Moscow-based cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab comes as no surprise, say security experts.

Officials say that the prominent company poses a threat to U.S. national security and have given government agencies and departments 90 days to get rid of Kaspersky Lab software.

The iPhone X will ship with a brand-new version of iOS 11

iPhone X vs iPhone 8 spec

Apple has given us enough iPhone X spec sheets and teaser videos to slobber over for now, but there's still a few missing details about the iPhone X that need to be cleaned up before launch. One thing that was sorely lacking at Apple's presentation was any mention of software. We know that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will ship with iOS 11, but it seems as though the iPhone X will come with something even better: iOS 11.1.

Yes, you can actually get a 55-inch 4K Roku TV for half the price of an iPhone

Roku TV Amazon

Apple just unveiled three new iPhones earlier this week, and they’re fantastic. They’re also really, really expensive. The cheapest new iPhone Apple sells costs $649, and they go all the way up to over $1,000. That’s right, over $1,000 for a cell phone! The middle of the road iPhone starts at just under $800 with the least amount of storage you can get, and prices only go up from there. To put that in perspective, you can get a TCL 55S405 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD Roku Smart LED TV on Amazon right now for half that much. That’s right, a 4K TV with built-in Roku software and a 4.4-star rating from more than 570 customer reviews for half as much as an iPhone. What are you waiting for?

Here are some key details from the product page:

* Dimensions (W x H x D): TV without stand: 49.1" x 28.5" x 3", TV with stand: 49.1" x 30.8" x 8.7"
* Smart functionality offers access to over 4,000 streaming channels featuring more than 450,000 movies and TV episodes via Roku TV
* Pairs 4K Ultra HD picture clarity with the contrast, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR) for the most lifelike picture
* Direct-lit LED produces great picture quality
* 120Hz refresh rate allows fast moving action scenes to be seen with virtually no motion blur
* Inputs: 3 HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 (one with HDMI ARC), 1 USB (media player), RF, Composite, Headphone Jack, Optical Audio Out, Ethernet

If size does actually matter, the iPhone 8 is in trouble

iPhone 8 vs iPhone 7

Normally, comparing the spec sheets of a new iPhone and an Android flagship is useless. Given the gulf in software between the two, specs that would normally mean something -- say, the difference in RAM -- are worthless. The iPhone X will probably feel faster than the OnePlus 5, despite having 3GB of RAM instead of 6.

But one thing that normally is instructive is looking at the specs of the new iPhones against what they're replacing. Obviously, we expect everything to get better every year. But when it comes to battery sizes, we might be in for a rude surprise.

Earlier today, Ben Lovejoy noted the difficulty in finding positive reactions to the iPhone X’s “notch”. Many 9to5Mac readers have shared the same sentiment over the past few days. While the notch can introduce some annoyances in viewing video or photo content for consumers, it also presents challenges to iOS app developers.

Why I think Apple botched the iPhone X’s notch

iPhone X Features

The iPhone X is likely the best smartphone made to date, and probably the best phone of the year considering the technological advancements it has compared to the competitions. The A11 Bionic chipset and the Face ID camera are beyond anything Samsung or Google can pull off this year. These aren’t the only top features available from the iPhone X that deserve praise, but you’ll be hard-pressed to really notice them as long as you’re focused on that ugly notch.

Parrot launches new Parrot Mambo FPV race mini drone

Have you always wanted to try out drone racing? Well, today is your chance! Parrot, the French drone company, just launched the Parrot Mambo FPV (First Person Race) drone. It promises to be a compact, ultra-light, agile and fun to fly mini-drone, that also provides a First Person View (FPV) race experience.

We have not yet had a chance to try one ourselves but we’re hoping to do so soon and report about it here. If it is anything like the DJI Spark in sports mode that we did a first impression of earlier, it should be a lot of fun to fly.
