Donald Trump slowing planned withdrawal from Syria, says Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump slowing planned withdrawal from Syria, says Lindsey GrahamPresident Donald Trump has ordered a slowdown to the withdrawal of US forces in Syria, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Sunday. "I think we’re in a pause situation," the South Carolina Republican said outside the White House after lunch with the president. Trump announced earlier this month that he was ordering the withdrawal of all roughly 2,000 troops from war-torn Syria, with aides expecting it to take place swiftly. The president had declared victory over the Islamic State group in Syria, though pockets of fighting remain. Graham had been an outspoken critic of Trump’s policy, which had drawn bipartisan criticism. The announcement also had shocked lawmakers and American allies, including Kurds who have fought alongside the US against the Islamic State group and face an expected assault by Turkey. "I think we’re slowing things down in a smart way," Graham said, adding that Trump was very aware of the plight of the Kurds. Critics had contended that the US withdrawal would embolden Iran and Russia, which have supported the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. National security adviser John Bolton was expected to travel to Israel and Turkey next weekend to discuss the president’s plans with the American allies.

Apple sued over slowing phones in France, where planned obsolescence is a crime

Apple sued over slowing phones in France, where planned obsolescence is a crimeThe legal fallout over Apple slowing down old iPhones could produce a criminal court proceeding after a French organisation filed a criminal lawsuit. Since it emerged that Apple slowed old iPhones to prevent them from malfunctioning due to poor battery performance, the company has faced a slew of lawsuits in the United States and Israel. In a statement, the organisation claimed Apple’s actions violated a 2015 French law that prohibits “the practice of planned obsolescence, which is defined by the use of techniques by which the person responsible for the marketing of a product aims to deliberately reduce the duration to increase the replacement rate”.
