Apple about to cancel iPhone X due to unfavorable market

Apple about to cancel iPhone X

The most expensive and decorated phone from Apple, iPhone X may soon see the end of its life. According to latest Apple leak, the company is soon is going to cancel the iPhone X due to unfavorable market.

The rumor started after Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that because of the disappointing sales of iPhone X will lead to the cancellation of the model “with production ceasing in the summer”.

If it happens, then this could be the first time Apple has canceled an iPhone model after just one generation since the iPhone 5C in 2014. According to experts, the market is against the iPhone X mainly due to the notch, which many potential Chinese customers believe removes too much usable space on the screen.

As per the report, Apple is not planning to reduce the price of iPhone X and continue its sales. Instead the company will migrate the technologies to other models, and an “iPhone X Plus” model will debut considering usable screen area.

Google’s Fuchsia OS spotted running on Pixelbook

It looks like Google’s Fuchsia OS is not a vapourware, unlike Andromeda, a merge of Chrome/Android OS. After Google releasing detailed documentation of loading Fuchsia OS on the Pixelbook, now Ars Technica published a new video of running an unreleased beta version of OS on the device.

Still, in its early stages of development, it looks like Fuchsia is one of the most flexible and responsive operating system. As we already told its a beta version, Fuchsia OS bundled with a lot of bugs but according to the user Fuchsia successfully able to recognize USB ports, mice, keyboards, touchscreens, and USB Ethernet adapters in its boot. Other notable features found in its beta stages are a Home screen, Google Search Bar, Lockscreen, Card based layouts and more.

The unique feature of Fuchsia is its adaptation of different environment. The smooth transition of operating system from PC interface to a tablet interface to a phone interface looks great along with responsiveness of installed programs, cues Fuchsia is going to be the future universal operating system.

Check out Ars Technica article to know about the installation process of Fuchsia OS. Since the operating system is still in evolution period, we recommend not to install on your main machine.

Google created the Fuchsia OS and open sourced for the developer community to help in its development. The interesting fact is that Fuchsia is built off of the Zircon microkernel and is completely separate from the Linux kernels that are the foundation of Android and Chrome OS.

Kali Linux Commands

Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. It is maintained and funded by Offensive Security Ltd. Mati Aharoni, Devon Kearns and Raphaël Hertzog are the core developers.

Kali Linux is preinstalled with over 600 penetration-testing programs, including nmap (a port scanner), Wireshark (a packet analyzer), John the Ripper (a password cracker), Aircrack-ng (a software suite for penetration-testing wireless LANs), Burp suite and OWASP ZAP (both web application security scanners). Kali Linux can run natively when installed on a computer’s hard disk, can be booted from a live CD or live USB, or it can run within a virtual machine. It is a supported platform of the Metasploit Project’s Metasploit Framework, a tool for developing and executing security exploits.

YouTube’s new video monetization policy is going to flush out low-quality channels

youtube limitation monetize channels

YouTube is all set to flush out spammers, impersonators, and other bad creators/channels with its new set of rules for video monetization eligibility.

Now onwards channels with 4,000 hours of watch time within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers will be eligible to earn revenue from their YouTube videos. So with these new rules, the old YouTube Partner Program (YPP) eligibility requirement of 10,000 lifetime views, that they implemented back in 2017 became absolute.

The new video monetization policy is not only going to affect the new users but also existing creators too. Many of the existing channels already received the mail from YouTube regarding this subject. As per the mail, the existing channels/creators who don’t meet the new 4,000 hour/1,000 subscriber threshold before February 20, 2018, are no longer eligible for monetization.

With these major video monetization policy change, YouTube is going to decrease the number of low-quality channels and spammers. According to YouTube, “These higher standards will also help us prevent potentially inappropriate videos from monetizing which can hurt revenue for everyone.”

So check out 22 best Linux distro for ethical hacking and penetration testing :

1. Kali Linux

kali linux operating system

Also Read : A-Z Kali Linux Commands

Kali Linux maintained and funded by Offensive Security Ltd. is first in our list. Kali Linux is a Debian-derived Linux distribution designed for digital forensics and penetration testing. Kali is the one of the best and favourite operating systems of hackers.

It was developed by Mati Aharoni and Devon Kearns of Offensive Security through the rewrite of BackTrack, their previous forensics Linux distribution based on Ubuntu. Kali Linux has a dedicated project set-aside for compatibility and porting to specific Android devices, called Kali Linux NetHunter. It is the first Open Source Android penetration testing platform for Nexus devices, created as a joint effort between the Kali community member “BinkyBear” and Offensive Security. It supports Wireless 802.11 frame injection, one-click MANA Evil Access Point setups, HID keyboard (Teensy like attacks), as well as Bad USB MITM attacks.

FeaturesBackTrack (Kali’s predecessor) contained a mode known as forensic mode. This capability was carried over to Kali via live boot. This mode is very popular for many reasons such as many Kali users already have a bootable Kali USB drive or CD, and this option makes it easy to apply Kali to a forensic job. There are however some changes to forensic mode over the regular operation of the system, such as forensic mode doesn’t touch the hard drive or swap space and auto mounting is disabled. However, it is recommended by the developers that if Kali is going to be used for real world forensics that these things be tested in that environment.

Supported Platforms : Kali Linux is distributed in 32- and 64-bit images for use on hosts based on the x86 instruction set and as an image for the ARM architecture for use on the BeagleBoard computer and on Samsung’s ARM Chromebook. Kali Linux is already available for BeagleBone Black, HP Chromebook, CubieBoard 2, CuBox, CuBox-i, Raspberry Pi, EfikaMX, Odroid U2, Odroid XU, Odroid XU3, Samsung Chromebook, Utilite Pro, Galaxy Note 10.1 and SS808.
