  • Thousands of refugees are fleeing Finland — some of them think it's just too cold

    Refugees are leaving Finland by the thousands, in part, because it's too cold. The head of a small travel agency in Helsinki, the country's capital, told Reuters: "Some say they don't like the food here, it's too cold or they don't feel welcome in Finland. At the end of January, Finnish officials said that almost 70% of Iraqi asylum seekers whose applications were processed last year abandoned their claim and returned home, AFP reports.

  • Canadian dollar strengthens as crude oil prices surge

    By Fergal Smith TORONTO (Reuters) - The Canadian dollar rose against its U.S. counterpart on Friday as a surge in oil prices supported the risk-sensitive commodity currency, even as solid U.S. retail sales data helped drive broader gains for the greenback. The rally in the Canadian dollar is "a function of what oil prices have done today," said David Tulk, chief Canada macro strategist at TD Securities, who views the rebound in oil as position-driven.

  • Retro ‘60s Property That Hasn’t Been Touched In 50 Years Up For Sale (12 photos)

    With its psychedelic floral wallpaper, dark wooden panels and retro patterned carpets, it’s easy to see why this home was crowned ‘House of the Year’ at the Ideal Home Show in 1967. And the property hasn’t been touched since - even the kitchen and bathroom fittings haven’t had an update and the unique exterior staircase stands intact. The four-bedroom home in Birmingham is now going under the hammer, and is expected to fetch up to £240,000. Whether the new owners decide to bring it up to date or stick with the vintage style remains to be seen.

  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus rumors and news leaks

    Enjoying the feel of that sparkly new rose gold iPhone 6S in your hand, and the joy of 3D Touch? Well, we don’t want to spoil that, but Apple’s already working on the iPhone 7, and rumors about it are beginning to spread. Here’s what we think we know about Apple’s next major smartphone release so far. Updated on 02-12-2016 by Malarie Gokey: Added in rumors about lightning headphones without noise canceling for the iPhone 7. Click on a link to jump to a topic: No headphone jack iPhone 7 camera technology 3D Touch and security OLED screen, RAM and other specs Liquid metal, waterproof design September release date No more headphone jack Apple is no stranger to eliminating ports and forcing users to switch cables and accessories to adapt. For a few months now, the rumor mill has been hinting that Apple will kill the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and opt for a wireless-only standard. Related: Goodbye wires: Apple said to be working on wireless earbuds for the iPhone 7 In a note, Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Christopher Hemmelgarn hinted that the iPhone 7 will have headphones that connect through the lightning port, but they won’t feature noise canceling. The two analysts think that noise canceling will come along with the iPhone 7S, since Apple’s audio component supplier Cirrus Logic is expected to introduce an improved noise-cancellation smart codec. The analysts added that Apple may put another speaker on the iPhone 7 where the 3.5mm headphone jack currently sits. Naturally, these are just the suppositions of analysts and not solid facts. At first, it sounded like a mad idea, but now, Twitter user Chase Fromm spotted a hint in the iOS 9.3 beta code that hints the 3.5mm headphone jack will bite the dust on future iPhones. The code says, “Headphones.have.%sinput.NO.” However, not everyone is so sure that the code is concrete proof that the headphone jack is dead. Jesus H. Christ. pic.twitter.com/ybYFdOiR60 — Cʜᴀsᴇ Fʀᴏᴍᴍ ™ (@uloshe) January 18, 2016 A reputable source says Apple’s plan to kill the headphone jack is real. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman, who often gets Apple scoops before anyone else, reported that Apple is at the prototype stage with a new pair of wireless earbuds for the iPhone 7. They could be called AirPods and be entirely wireless, like the Moto Hint. The earbuds could have a few buttons for taking calls and activating Siri, and would likely include different sized gels for a better fit. Gurman says the earbuds would come in a carrying case to charge them. Please enable Javascript to watch this video An earlier report hinted that the headphone jack might disappear, but headphones could be connected via the lightning port instead. Of course, that would pose problems for those who need to charge their phones while listening to audio with headphones. It’s unclear at this point if the rumors will prove true. Flush cam housing on the iPhone 7, dual cameras on the iPhone 7 Plus Apple has always steadily improved the iPhone’s camera, and since the introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, has subtly separated them by making a few features unique to the larger Plus model. This may continue with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, according to rumors. In a February report, Macrumors says Apple will reduce the size of the iPhone 7’s camera lens so it sits flush with the body, rather than sitting proud like it does on the iPhone 6S. It’s not clear whether this will continue on the 7 Plus, but other reports hint Apple might include a dual-camera setup on the larger phone. DigiTimes reported in early February that Apple received dual-lens camera samples from Largan Technology, as well as other lens makers from Japan and China. Apple will supposedly test these samples with the hopes of using one of them on the iPhone 7 Plus or a “premium” version of it. Based in Taiwan. Largan supplies over 60 percent of Apple’s smartphone cameras, but according to the report, Apple might want to utilize dual-lens cameras from other manufacturers to lower its risk. KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo suggested in a late January report (via 9to5Mac) that Apple will offer a “premium” version of the iPhone 7 Plus, which will feature a dual-camera system. Apple acquired Linx Imaging a while ago, and may use its tech in the special iPhone 7 Plus model, Kuo hints. The tech takes two independent photos and blends them together for an overall better image. Related: iPad Air 3 news and rumors The Linx Imaging technology is not the only high-tech feature that may be added to the special edition iPhone 7 Plus. According to Kuo’s note, the camera will also feature an optical zoom with 2-3x magnification, optical image stabilization, and a much larger field of view. The regular iPhone 7 Plus might be downgraded to a telephoto lens and small field of view to make the premium model more valuable to customers who love to take photos. Of course, Apple hasn’t commented on the report, so it’s still firmly in the rumor mill. It is not the first time we’ve heard of multiple iPhone models, a report last year out of China said Apple was testing five different iPhone models. One of those models apparently featured a dual-camera system, though the report didn’t mention any of the other camera specs. 3D Touch advancements, fingerprint sensor in the display A December 2015 report from Ming-Chi Kuo said that 3D Touch will still feature prominently in the new iPhone, but so far, Kuo believes the tech will work the same way on the iPhone 7 as on the 6S. Earlier reports teased the possibility of multi-3D Touch, but it’s unclear if it will arrive on this year’s iPhone. Hard press on the Notes app to initiate Quick Actions. Jeffrey Van Camp/Digital Trends The report from inside China suggested that the five iPhones being tested all had one particular feature of interest. The features include wireless charging, fingerprint recognition on the display, multi Force Touch, dual-cameras, and a USB Type-C connector. Previous patents have suggested Apple is working on wireless charging and fingerprint recognition technology on the display, though the patent for wireless charging was filed three years ago. OLED screen, RAM and other high-end specs Apple could make some big changes on the iPhone 7’s spec sheet. The biggest rumor that’s come out has to do with a move from LCD screens to OLED screens. Some reports say the iPhone 7 will get an OLED screen, but others say the new screens won’t be ready in time and will arrive on later iPhones. You can read all those rumors here. Up until the iPhone 6S, Apple’s phones only sported 1GB of RAM, even though many Android competitors used 3 or 4GB of RAM in their flagship phones. Now, reports hint that the iPhone 7 will get even more RAM than the 6S, with rumors of 3GB of RAM popping up for the iPhone 7 Plus. The claim has been made more than once, and TrendForce is the latest to join the fray. Related: When will the iPhone use an OLED screen? Here are all the rumors Analyst Kuo also chimed in on the iPhone 7 with another report, claiming it will run on a new A10 chip built entirely by TSMC, a Taiwanese chip manufacturer that has worked with Apple in the past, and built some of the current A9 processors. He also claims the iPhone 7 Plus will have 3GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 will only use 2GB. Foxconn will apparently manufacture the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and it should launch towards the end of this year, says Kuo. It may be made of liquid metal and waterproof As we said before, if Apple follows its own mobile trend the iPhone 7 should come with an entirely new design. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the iPhone 7 will be the thinnest yet at between 6 and 6.5mm thick. That is around the same as the iPad Air 2, and a millimeter thinner than the current generation iPhone. In February, in the same Macrumors report that discussed making the camera lens housing sit flush with the iPhone 7’s body, it’s also stated Apple will remove the plastic antenna inserts across the body, although the ones on the sides and edges will stay. One of the more prevalent early rumors concerns a waterproof iPhone 7. DigiTimes reports Taiwan’s Commercial Times discovered evidence that says Catcher Technologies will supply waterproof iPhone 7 chassis components. The company also said “new compound materials” will conceal the antenna bands on he back of the device, which also fits with more recent rumors. TrendForce published a press release asserting the iPhone 7 will be waterproof. Another post made to the Chinese social network Weibo, and reported by Macotakara, also said the iPhone 7 will have a waterproof and dustproof body. Related: Here’s our comprehensive iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus buying guide Another Weibo post talks about Apple using a new, but unnamed material to make the iPhone 7 case, and it won’t be metal. Rumors have spread in the past about an all liquid metal iPhone, but have never come true, and this may signal Apple has decided to go in a different direction with the next-generation phone. Apple might be planning to axe the 3.5mm audio jack on the iPhone 7, and replace it with a USB Type-C connector that supports proprietary headphones, according to sources in China. September release date rumored Apple typically reveals the new iPhone in September at a big event, and although rumors always pop up that it’ll arrive earlier or later, the new iPhone usually comes out right on schedule every fall. Noted KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose predictions are very often correct, said in a note to investors obtained by MacRumors that the iPhone 7 will arrive in September 2016 as per Apple’s custom. It is early yet, though, so expect to hear a lot more speculation on the launch date. It’s very early days for the iPhone 7, despite what these rumors may make you think. We don’t even know if Apple will continue with adding an increasing number to the iPhone name, or if it’ll come up with something new for this edition. Whatever the case, we’ll keep you updated with all the news and rumors over the months leading up to the next iPhone’s 2016 introduction.

    U.S. production slipped from highs. Oil supplies hit record levels. Oil ministers and energy tycoons from Moscow to Riyadh hinted that production cuts — or at least a meeting to discuss them — are on the table. A perfect storm appeared to be brewing around oil markets at the start of the year, but the winds that looked as if they might at least partially reverse the oil price rout appear to be dying down. Now, a number of experts see 2016 as another waiting game. The International Energy Agency on Tuesday said it believes demand growth will fall significantly, and the global oil surplus will be larger than the group earlier forecast. IEA identified five key factors that could trigger a rebound:
