India will defer license requirements for importing laptops and tablets, two government officials said. Industry and the US government have previously complained about the move, which could hit Apple, Samsung and other companies.
The plan will be delayed for a year, after which the government will consider introducing a licensing regime, one of the officials, who requested anonymity, told Reuters.
The licensing regime, announced abruptly on August 3, was aimed at “ensuring trusted equipment and systems” enter India, reduce dependence on imports, boost local manufacturing and partially address the country’s trade imbalance with China. But due to industry objections, the original plan was quickly delayed by about three months.
Last month, US trade chief Katherine Tai expressed India’s concerns about the move, which would also affect companies such as Dell and HP. India’s Ministry of Electronics is now proposing to simplify the import registration process, which is set to begin in November.
The new “import management system” will require companies to obtain “certificates of registration” to import laptops, tablets and personal computers, instead of the licenses previously proposed by the August 3 order.
India’s electronics imports, including laptops, tablets and personal computers, totaled $19.7 billion between April and June, up 6.25% year-on-year.
The latest Apple MacBook Pro 14 with M3 Pro offers the best speakers and best screen on the market. DxOMark thinks so
DxOMark experts named the sound system of the Apple MacBook Pro 14″ (M3 Pro, 2023) the best among those tested.
The authors of the source test not only smartphones, but also laptops, although much less frequently. In this case, the latest version of the 14-inch MacBook Pro, equipped with the M3 Pro SoC, turns out to have better speakers and at the same time a better screen. In total, for these indicators (the source calls it Music & Video), the laptop received 154 points, while the same MacBook on the M2 Pro at one time earned 149 points.
At the same time, interestingly, the quality of video calls in the old model is slightly better: 144 points versus 142. But the final result of 148 points still puts the new product in the lead, although the difference with the previous version is only 1 point.
If you look at the entire rating, the first few places are occupied exclusively by Apple laptops.

Users are unhappy: Evernote is testing a limit of 50 notes and 1 notebook without a paid subscription
The team of the popular service for creating and storing notes Evernote began testing an innovation that its users did not like much. Complaints about Evernote have appeared online – users are offered the choice of either paying for a paid subscription or facing a limit of 1 notebook and 50 notes.
This change severely limits the options for longtime Evernote users who have accumulated hundreds or thousands of notes over the years.
Despite the message in the app, Evernote’s website pricing page does not yet indicate that there is such a limit for free use. Thematic resource TechCrunch was able to obtain comment on the situation from company representatives. Evernote said that the change is not yet final, so the information on the site has not been updated. The service team tested with less than 1% of its users with a free subscription. If they decide to adopt the innovation, the company will explicitly communicate the changes at “relevant customer touchpoints.”
Evernote also emphasized that the new limit will not prevent users from managing, editing, viewing, exporting or deleting existing notes, but will only limit the ability to create new notes.
