This May Be The Most Important 18 Minutes You Spend All Week!

Let’s be honest. We aren’t going to read the text of the American Health Care Act. No one is. The thing is MASSIVE! It looks like a civics textbook started mainlining HGH (and turned into a real asshole).

So how can we be sure Donald Trump‘s replacement for Obamacare is terrible?? Well, for one, it’s from Paul Ryan and the being-poor-is-a-sin-against-god singers.

But how SPECIFICALLY bad is it? You know, in case your Pro-Trump uncle asks?

Let John Oliver break it down for you — with a spoonful of laughter to help the medicine go down of course — on an all new Last Week Tonight segment (above)!

Apple Seeds Sixth Beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.4 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Available Too]

Apple today seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming macOS Sierra 10.12.4 update to developers, just under one week after seeding the fifth macOS Sierra 10.12.4 beta and over a month after releasing macOS Sierra 10.12.3.



The sixth macOS Sierra 10.12.4 beta is available for download through the Apple Developer Center or the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who have previously installed a beta.



macos-10-12-4-beta


macOS Sierra 10.12.4 brings iOS’s Night Shift mode to the Mac for the first time. First introduced on iOS devices with iOS 9.3, Night Shift is designed to gradually shift the display of a device from blue to yellow, cutting down on exposure to blue light. Blue light is said to disrupt the circadian rhythm and is believed to interrupt sleeping patterns.



Night Shift can be activated through the Displays section of System Preferences, where a setting to have it come on at sunset and turn off at sunrise is available. Night Shift can also be toggled on manually through the Notification Center or via Siri.

The 10.12.4 update focuses mainly on Night Shift, but also includes dictation support for Shanghainese, cricket scores for Siri, improved PDFKit APIs, and iCloud Analytics options.



Update: Apple has also made the sixth beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.4 available for public beta testers.

Apple Seeds Sixth Beta of iOS 10.3 to Developers [Update: Public Beta Now Available]

Apple today seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming iOS 10.3 update to developers, just under one week after seeding the fifth beta of iOS 10.3 and three months after the release of iOS 10.2, the last major update to the iOS 10 operating system.



Registered developers can download the sixth iOS 10.3 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air with the proper configuration profile installed.



ios-10-3-beta


iOS 10.3 is a major update, introducing significant new features and changes to the iOS 10 operating system. The biggest consumer-facing feature in iOS 10.3 is “Find My AirPods,” which is designed to help AirPods owners locate a lost earphone. Find My AirPods records the last known location of when an AirPod was connected to an iOS device via Bluetooth and can play a sound on a lost AirPod.



Apple’s latest update also introduces a new Apple File System (APFS), installed when an iOS device is updated to iOS 10.3. APFS is optimized for flash/SSD storage and includes features like strong encryption.



Apple plans to introduce some App Store changes in iOS 10.3, allowing developers to respond to customer reviews for the first time. iOS users are also able to label reviews in the App Store as “Helpful” or “Not Helpful,” which should help surface the most relevant review content.

Apple also plans to limit the number of times developers can ask for a review, allow customers to leave app reviews without exiting an app, and provide a “master switch” that will let users turn off all app review request prompts.



Also new in iOS 10.3 is a redesigned app open/close animation, an Apple ID profile in Settings, a better breakdown of iCloud storage usage, warnings about outdated apps that won’t work with future versions of iOS, HomeKit support for programmable light switches, improvements to SiriKit (bill paying, bill status, and scheduling future rides), CarPlay interface improvements, iCloud analytics options, and more.


Update: iOS 10.3 beta 6 is also available for public beta testers.

PRS rocks the house with guitars made from old buildings

PRS is capping production of its Reclaimed Limited series instruments at just 600 units

Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Guitars has announced a limited run of its CE24 and S2 Vela semi-hollow six-string electrics. The exotic woods used for both guitars are native to Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, but the company hasn’t chopped down any ancient trees to make its new axes. Instead, the wood was reclaimed from old buildings.

Meet Khalid: Former Army Brat Turned Pop Prodigy

Last spring, Khalid was an 18-year-old unsigned artist finishing high school in El Paso, Texas. He’d recorded a few tracks of minimalist R&B, full of spacious vibes and longing, uploaded them to Soundcloud and became a local hero – a change for an Army brat who’d grown up as a shy kid singing musical theater and opera. But when he moved to El Paso before his senior year, he began channeling his loneliness into his songs, working up melodies and lyrics on his iPhone, then putting them to music with friends. No studios – ideas for a track might be captured on a voice memo in the bathroom and recorded in someone’s bedroom. And Khalid had no car, so once, to get to a session, he hit up Twitter. He recalls, “I put this tweet out: ‘Can someone please come pick me up and take me to record at my friend’s house?'”

The track that made sure he’d never be without a ride again was a swoony groover called “Location.” “It was toward the end of my senior year,” he says. “A lot of my classmates were like, ‘When are we gonna get another song?’ And I’m telling my manager, ‘We gotta get this song out. Because I’m falling off, and prom is right around the corner.’ ”

“Location” blended old-school touches of organ and guitar in new-school ways, as Khalid pleaded with a girl to let him know when and where to come through. After Kylie Jenner Snapchatted a clip of herself listening to the song, his growing fame became more than local. Within a few months he’d signed to RCA, and a few months after that he was putting the finishing touches on his debut album, American Teen, a mix of slow-moving heartbreak and pop thrills, as if Drake had reworked Katy Perry’s catalog as a soundtrack for late-night adventures.

Many of the songs – like “Saved,” where Khalid pledges to keep a number stored until an ex finally misses him the way he misses her – revolve around that millennial essential: the phone. “Falling in love in high school and falling out of love – it’s very digital,” says Khalid. “I’ve had breakups where they’ve called me to tell me we were done, and I’ve gotten a lot of text messages from an old girlfriend letting me know how she felt about me after we had ended everything.”

Growing up, Khalid Robinson’s mom told him howimportant music was. This was no artistic abstraction – she was in the Army,and singing with the U.S. Army Europe Band and Chorus meant she could travelthe world performing rather than be deployed. “Music pretty much savedher life, and saved my own life,” he says. He cites his diverse influences: “Father John Misty, Brandy, Aaliyah, Bill Withers, BillieHoliday.” Until he got to El Paso, he thought he’d be a music teacher. Butin the past year and a half he’s discovered something of his own: music full ofdeep bottom and empty space that reassembles the past in the shape of thefuture. “In a span of a couple of months I feel like I’ve found my voice,”he says. “But who knows? The next album might be a different type ofvoice. Art is fluid, and it travels. You have to let music take you where itwants to take you. You can’t necessarily be the controller.”

What does the perfect Windows phone look like?

Despite the struggles that Windows phones have endured, there are millions of consumers who are still using, loving and hanging onto the platform.

Unfortunately, there are precious few Windows phones on the market for fans with aging devices to move on to when these devices inevitably need to be replaced. As a result, users of Windows phones with broken screens, failing batteries and an assortment of other wear-and-tear and age-related ailments find themselves sniffing around the iPhone and Android looking for a new mobile companion.

This predicament and other factors got me thinking. Fellow Windows Central writers Jez Corden and Zac Bowden recently wrote pieces reflecting their passion for Windows phones and asking you, the community, why you are committed to the platform. Combined with my analyis of the state of the platform and commitment as a fan, the response from other fans has been tremendous.

Explaining Trump: How the White House cleans up after a tweetstorm

Explaining Trump: How the White House cleans up after a tweetstormDonald Trump entered public life on the strength of the lie that Barack Obama was born outside the United States and ineligible to be president, and even after disavowing it at the last possible moment of his presidential campaign, Trump has continued to say things for which — to put it as generously as possible — there is no discernible evidence. One of Spicer’s favorite fallbacks when challenged is a variation of, “The president’s tweet speaks for itself,” as if the 140-character firebombs dispatched in response to “Fox and Friends” segments or Breitbart stories require no further context.
