Due to the fact that North Korea adopted a policy of nuclear preemptive strike, the US Senate held a series of consultations to strengthen supervision of the DPRK and tighten sanctions against the country. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez (D-NJ) announced on September 14 that he had submitted a bill to the National Assembly to oversee North Korean policy.

The bill, proposed jointly with Congressman Bill Hagerty (R-Tennessee) states that US policy is to use all diplomatic means to denuclearize North Korea and return it to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

To this end, the bill requires that a report on the nuclear threat situation in North Korea, US negotiations with North Korea, and economic pressure on North Korea and its allies be submitted to Congress every six months for two years after the law goes into effect.

The bill also provided for the imposition of sanctions for the use of cryptocurrency by North Korea to evade international sanctions against it.

“This bill will help advance peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region by strengthening and expanding sanctions against North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs and the destructive activities of the Kim Jong-un regime,” Menendez said in a press release.

According to experts, the use of cryptocurrency will gradually become an increasingly regulated area, and control and sanctions by the authorities against unwanted market participants will increase.

Cheap laptops are different, but the $240 JioBook is different than most.

For example, the heart here is not an Intel or AMD processor at all. Qualcomm’s solution is used here, but even in this case, the choice is still extraordinary, since this is Snapdragon 665. Yes, a regular smartphone single-chip system, and not some specialized one that Qualcomm has in its range.

Apparently, the reason is that the laptop is running Android. The company itself indicates JioOS as OS, but this is just a shell. Accordingly, any SoC would be suitable for such a mobile PC.

The Snapdragon 665 is manufactured on an 11nm process and has a 4G modem, but at the moment this platform should be very affordable, which could play a role in the choice of the company.

The laptop also includes 2 or 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of eMMC flash memory and an 11.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

The source says that so far the laptop has only appeared on the government e-commerce platform, and even there it is indicated that only 10 laptops are available in the warehouse, but these are already details. So far, it is only unclear whether such a PC will be available to everyone.

How new iPhone 14 is more productive than its predecessors

The team of the popular Antutu benchmark has published a fresh monthly rating of the most productive Apple mobile devices.

How new iPhone 14 is more productive than its predecessors: Antutu's latest ranking of the fastest iPhones and iPads

At the end of September, it became clear how good smartphones in the new iPhone 14 line are in terms of performance. According to Antutu experts, although the iPhone 14 did not perform very well, the iPhone 14 Pro still boasts good results thanks to the A16 SoC and 6 GB of RAM.

As we can see, the iPhone 14 Pro managed to take 4th place in the ranking, losing in performance to Apple tablets – iPad Pro 5 of different diagonals and iPad Air 5 based on the Apple M1 SoC. At the same time, the more expensive and larger iPhone 14 Pro Max took fifth place, scoring less than the iPhone 14 Pro.

According to Antutu experts, the reason for this is due to the large screen size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Assuming that the basic configuration of the two models is almost the same, the difference in screen size gives a difference of about 2000 pixels. The base model iPhone 14 got into the Antutu rating, but only in tenth place.

Last year’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max took eighth and seventh places, respectively, and the iPhone 13 was not included in the ranking.

The data was collected from September 1 to September 30, 2022. It is worth noting that the table shows the average, not the highest results, while at least 1000 tests were used for each model.
