Having used the new 11-inch model for almost a week, it makes a decent case for a hybrid of all three wrapped into one. A quick disclaimer: I’m a regular iPad Pro user. I use it for work (a lot) and for non-work (movies, the web and photo-editing). So I’m naturally interested in some of the upgraded features on this new model. So far, it’s a really decent upgrade. Paired with the new Smart Keyboard Folio case, it’s sturdier and faster than the existing iPad Pro with a slightly larger screen (despite being the same physical size). It has also somewhat opened up its connection possibilities, thanks to the replacement of the Lightning port with a USB-C port. (In time, this could be a critical pivot in boosting the iPad Pro as a productivity tool.) But it’s also upped its game with graphics and processor speed, meaning that it is becoming a capable games and entertainment machine. And storage is now on par with almost any laptop: my test model has a whopping … [Read more...] about Is Apple’s new iPad Pro a good enough upgrade to be a laptop killer?

Donald Trump has outlived the “axis of adults” that was supposed to guide and shape his foreign policy. He’s run through two national security advisers, innumerable lawyers and lower-level aides, an attorney general, an array of Cabinet secretaries and, any day now, the second of two White House chiefs of staff. He’s dumped the ideologist who helped elect him and never really clarified what his “America First” campaign slogan was all about anyways. But since we launched The Global Politico days after his inauguration, Trump has more than followed through on his election pledge to shake up the Washington establishment of both parties when it comes to America’s position in the world. Each week, we’ve watched as he’s reoriented — or tried to — U.S. policy toward everywhere from Iran to North Korea, Russia to our North American neighbors. In 67 episodes over the last year and 85 days, I’ve been privileged to host NATO … [Read more...] about Just how dangerous is Donald Trump?

MARGARET BRENNAN, CBS NEWS: Today on FACE THE NATION: The president makes bold moves that shake up the stock market and the diplomatic world, leaving administration officials to clarify and clean up. Fears of a trade war spiked in the wake of new tariff threats by the president and counterthreats by China's leader, Xi Jinping. Add to that President Trump attacks on Amazon, plus Facebook's revelation that 87 million users' data could have ended up in a firm working for the Trump campaign, made for a wild week. We will talk to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Overnight, a chemical attack in Syria reportedly kills dozens and injures hundreds. We will have a report from the region. Maryland's Ben Cardin, a top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, will be here to talk about that and other news. Then: (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SHERYL SANDBERG, COO, FACEBOOK: We know that we did not do a good enough job protecting people's data. I'm really sorry for that. And Mark is really … [Read more...] about Full transcript: ‘Face the Nation’ on April 8, 2018
