• Royal Feud Explodes Into Public View Again as Palace Mulls Exile of Harry and Meghan

    Chris Jackson / GettyHow would you feel if you found out your brother was planning to exile you to Africa because you were more popular than him?The relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William looked decidedly frosty as they walked separately into an Easter service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Sunday. It came after the bombshell revelation that there are plots afoot to send Harry and Meghan overseas for two or three years in 2020, partly to stop the glamorous newlyweds from overshadowing William and Kate.Fresh palace spin Monday sought to suggest that Harry and Meghan “like the idea” (which is fortunate, isn’t it?), but it was hard to avoid the conclusion from observing the brothers on Sunday that an unseasonal chill had descended over the young royals.Amid rumored fears by palace staff that Meghan and Harry could be “bigger than Diana,” the brothers, who were once inseparable, appeared to be doing everything they could to keep out of each other’s way as they shuffled awkwardly into church for an Easter service.Harry was alone (Meghan, expecting her baby any day now, did not attend) but, instead of forming a trio with William and Kate, he chose to tag along with cousin Zara and her husband, Mike Tindall.At the entrance to the church, Harry held back so he did not have to go in with his brother, or sit next to him inside. Their decision to not walk into church together was no mere accident of logistics.The royals know that these big set piece church arrivals are laden with symbolism and, in previous years, it would have been unimaginable for a solo Harry not to stroll in with William and Kate to provide a clear symbol of unity among the younger generation of the Crown.But such is the distance opening up between the brothers that Harry kept away-he looked tense and preoccupied and clearly avoided making eye contact with William.What is particularly interesting about this falling out is that there no longer appears to be any attempt to hide it. In times gone by, a quintessentially British stiff upper lip would have been deployed and the two princes would have walked into church together with a game smile on their faces. Recriminations would have taken place safely behind palace walls.But for a surly Harry to stare at his shoes in public in the company of his brother is a bizarre new development, and perhaps gives credence to recent reports that Harry is becoming more outspoken in his defiance of the mores of his role. Notably, the palace is clearly not seeking to deny The Sunday Times story.Another ill-advised glug of petrol was poured on the fire by William and Kate when they posted a 93rd-birthday greeting to their grandmother on the Kensington Palace account, which appeared to deliberately exclude Meghan.William and Kate’s message on their Kensington Royal Instagram account read: “Wishing a very happy 93rd birthday to Her Majesty The Queen!"However, the picture used was from the 2016 Trooping of the Color event. It showed the Queen, Prince Philip, William, Harry, Kate, George, and Charlotte. There are plenty of pictures from last year that included Meghan that would have worked just as well.The Queen seems unlikely to have spent yesterday checking her grandchildren’s Instagrams for birthday messages. Meghan, on the other hand, tucked quietly away in Frogmore Cottage, could well have been. One can’t help wondering, therefore, who the picture was really meant for.Read more at The Daily Beast.

  • The Secret Is Out: The U.S. Air Force Has Russian MiG-29s To Dogfight

    Soviet-built jets are likely to be expensive to maintain in the United States. But if a contractor is willing to bear the cost and it benefits the Air Force to buy those services, it might be a worthy venture.As the United States Air Force continues its struggle with fielding enough aggressor aircraft for its combat aircraft crews to train against, contractors are stepping up to the plate.(This first appeared in late 2017.)In some cases, contractors are able to field remarkable aircraft that provide an exceptionally authentic replication of enemy aircraft. Such is the case of Air USA-the company has managed to acquire three two-seat trainer versions of the Mikoyan MiG-29UB Fulcrum.“The Air USA MIG 29 fleet was imported directly from a former Soviet Union nation. All aircraft are equipped with authentic former Soviet Union manufactured parts,” the company states on its website. “Air USA MIG 29 aircraft are capable of performing any air to air mission providing excellent training and flight test opportunities”Recommended: Uzi: The Israeli Machine Gun That Conquered the WorldRecommended: The M4: The Gun U.S. Army Loves to Go to War With

  • New iPhone 11 leak likely shows us Apple's final design

    It's about that time of year, folks. With WWDC now less than two months away and Apple's 2019 iPhone unveiling just a few months out, the Apple rumor mill is about to kick into high gear. And despite Apple's best efforts to "double down" on product secrecy, the previous few years have shown that Apple can't really do much of anything to prevent substantive rumors regarding upcoming products from leaking out. Interestingly enough, some of the more revealing leaks we've seen in recent years haven't come from third-parties but from Apple itself.This year, Apple hasn't slipped up just yet, but that's not to say the rumor mill has been quiet. On the contrary, with each passing week we seem to gain a firmer grasp of what Apple is planning to bring to the table with the release of its forthcoming iPhone 11 lineup. Just this weekend, for instance, physical molds of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max surfaced online and provide us with a clearer look at what Apple's next-gen iPhone lineup will look like.The photos below were originally posted on Weibo and were subsequently picked up by a user on Slashleaks. What you see here are case moldings that were purportedly put together by case manufacturers based on leaked information from Apple's vast supply chain. So while there's no guarantee the moldings below are accurate, it's no secret that case manufacturers will often take extreme measures in order to ascertain accurate information about upcoming iPhone models in order to get a jump on production.So as evidenced above, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max, as previously rumored, will both boast a triple-lens camera design that should provide users with enhanced zoom, ultra wide-angle shots, and more. Incidentally, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo last week issued an investor note relaying that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will feature a ultra-wide 12 megapixel sensor.Kuo's note reads in part: We forecast the camera upgrade will be one of the new 2H19 iPhone's major selling points. Critical spec upgrades are as follows. (1) Rear cameras of 6.5-inch OLED, 5.8-inch OLED, and 6.1-inch LCD will likely upgrade to triple-camera and dual-camera, respectively. A super-wide camera will be newly adopted by the triple-camera system, which is equipped with the 12MP/1um CIS provided exclusively by Sony.Kuo further added that the front-facing cameras on both devices will incorporate 12 megapixel sensors, a solid bump up from the 7 megapixel sensors currently found on Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max models.A front view of Apple's iPhone 11 models can be seen below, though there's not too much to see. The notch remains, though it's worth pointing out that Apple, with the release of the iPhone 11, will reportedly introduce some reliability and performance improvements to Face ID.
