BEIRUT (AP) — U.S. aircraft ferried Syrian Kurdish fighters and allied forces behind Islamic State lines on Wednesday to spearhead a major ground assault on a strategic town held by the extremist group outside its self-declared capital, Raqqa, the Pentagon said, marking the first time U.S. forces have provided airlift for local forces on a combat operation in Syria.

Following Tuesday’s announcements, Apple has now introduced not one or two but three new colors to its flagship iPhone lineup for this generation. The most recent is a deep red that matches earlier special-edition Product Red devices. But before that, Apple added two fresh colors to its catalog when it first released the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus back in September. The first was a matte black that replaces Apple’s space gray color with a stealth black color, and the second was a color unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
Dubbed “Jet Black,” the glossy, mirror finish instantly became the most desirable new iPhone color available, and it remains the most attractive option out there… with one big caveat. Apple’s Jet Black iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are indeed absolutely gorgeous — until you actually start using them.
Apple’s smooth and glossy Jet Black finish is indeed an industry first, but unfortunately the finish is nowhere near as durable as it is attractive. Jet Black iPhones are so prone to scratching that Apple had to include the following disclaimer on its website:
The high-gloss finish of the jet black iPhone 7 is achieved through a precision nine-step anodization and polishing process. Its surface is equally as hard as other anodized Apple products; however, its high shine may show fine micro-abrasions with use. If you are concerned about this, we suggest you use one of the many cases available to protect your iPhone.
That’s a nice way to put it. Another way to put it is this: your phone is going to get scratched up as soon as you start using it. A case offers some protection for the Jet Black finish, of course, but then a new question presents itself. If you’re going to cover up your iPhone with a case, why get Jet Black to begin with?
So, a number of people have decided to go caseless. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to work out very well. We’ve seen plenty of people post photos of what happens to the Jet Black finish on Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus over time when it’s not protected by a case, and now a new post on Reddit serves as a painful reminder to any Apple fans out there who are considering a caseless Jet Black iPhone.

President Trump is busy this week helping to make sure millions of Americans don’t lose their health insuran — -sorry, I mean, shutting down a teenage girl. 17-year-old Lucy from San Francisco recently designed a site called Kittenfeed.com (initially called TrumpScratch), where users get to punch Trump’s face with tiny little kitchen paws. It seemed like a pretty harmless, anti-Trump site (the kittens don’t even scratch!) — until she got a letter from the lawyers of a certain “well known businessman,”
The Observer reports. SEE ALSO: People can’t stop sharing this cartoon about Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’ That “internationally known” and “famous” businessman (his lawyers words, not mine) is, of course, Donald Trump. In the letter, Trump’s general counsel encourages the teen to cease and desist and shut down the website. Image: www.kittenfeed.com After receiving the letter, Lucy decided to change the name of the website to Kittenfeed.com. That wasn’t enough for Trump’s counsel, who reportedly continued to press the 17-year-old girl. The family is waiting to see their next move. “It’s so sad that his administration is focused more on being liked, burying real news and taking down sites like mine as they supposedly make him look bad,” Lucy told
The Observer. Predictably, Trump’s lawyers letter had the opposite effect of their intention. After
The Observer published the report yesterday, the site’s visitors surged from 3,000 to 50,000. Lesson: you can mess with Trump’s lawyers, but don’t you ever touch an animated kitten. WATCH: Robotic glove lets people with limited hand mobility perform daily tasks
