MANILA, Philippines – The World Boxing Organization has had a change of heart and will now conduct a review of the welterweight title fight between Manny Pacquiao and Jeff Horn last Sunday. Responding to the request of the Games and Amusement Board for a “thorough” review of the 12-round bout, WBO president Francisco “Paco Varcarcel” said it will grant GAB’s call. Varcarcel, however, said there won’t by a reversal of the official result, which is a unanimous decision victory for Horn. “The purpose of this review is to be able to give the fans certainty of who was the winner of the bout,” the WBO official said in his letter to the GAB. The GAB, the regulatory body for all professional sports and athletes in the Philippines, lodged its protest Tuesday, which was backed by Pacquiao himself. But in tweet Wednesday, the Puerto Rico-based organization said it won’t make a review of the fight at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, … [Read more...] about WBO to review Pacquiao vs Horn bout for ‘certainty’ of result
Since the first iPhone came out in 2007, all smartphone displays have been perfectly rectangular. But that’s starting to change. Because of current technical limitations and the need for smartphone companies to distinguish themselves in a crowded and competitive market, some phones this fall will be sporting “notches” or “cutouts” in their screen. The redesigned iPhone that’s expected to come out in September has a notch, according to an image included in recent code released by Apple. A notch juts down into the top of the screen, dividing the status bar with cell signal, battery life, and the time into two. This is so there’s room for a selfie camera on a phone with an edge-to-edge screen. But Apple won’t be the first company to release a phone with a notch. The Essential Phone, by Android creator Andy Rubin’s new company, is the first phone with a distinctive status bar cutout. It’s up for pre-order … [Read more...] about How top tech reviewers feel about the biggest change to smartphone design in years
“This is a book with very few words,” Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive writes in the foreword to “Designed by Apple in California,” a new collectible coffee table book by Apple that went on sale on Wednesday. He’s right. Besides the foreword, which is relatively short, the book’s 300 or so pages are all dedicated to big, beautiful photos of Apple products that came out in the last 20 years, from 1998 to 2015, and of the tools that make them. It seems like a perfect gift for Apple fans this Christmas. The book comes in two sizes, a smaller version that costs $199, and a bigger book – almost too big for a coffee table – that costs $299. The books are likely to be in limited supply. An Apple Store worker in New York City told me that they only got “like eight” of each, and another employee said that it seems like Apple wants them to be limited. Only a few stores are selling them right now. So is it worth … [Read more...] about REVIEWED: Here are the most interesting parts of Apple’s new $300 book
Reviewers have had two common criticisms of Apple Watch since it launched in April: Apps are slow and don’t always perform very well, and it’s a bit expensive for a watch that still requires you to keep your phone nearby. In June, Apple announced that it’s addressing those two points among other things with its watchOS 2 software update for the Apple Watch, which is launching in September. Apps will have native access to the watch, which means they’ll be able to run on the watch itself rather than constantly communicating with your phone. This means apps are likely to load a lot faster since they won’t have to ping your phone as often for data. Second, your watch will be able to remember Wi-Fi connections that you’ve connected to previously with your iPhone. So even if you leave your iPhone at home, you’ll be able to access certain functions on the watch, such as sending iMessages (if your contacts are synced to the watch) … [Read more...] about Apple has major changes in store for the Apple Watch, and they’re going to solve its biggest problems
