Like last year, Apple’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are both available in red, so some of the profits will help in the fight against AIDS.
As we relayed this morning, Apple has made official today it’s iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus with a red case. Pre-orders will be open tomorrow, Tuesday, April 10 and as usual, prices will be identical to the “conventional” versions, i.e., an entrance ticket of $809 for the iPhone 8 64GB and $919 for the iPhone 8 Plus (64GB).
Original article from April 9 11 am
MacRumors’ bloodhounds spotted an internal memo from Virgin Mobile employees. According to this memo, iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (Product) Red are in the cartons, and the announcement of these red versions could be imminent since the site indicates that these red iPhone should be officialized this Monday, April 9. The operator’s memo does not refer to iPhone X, so we can imagine that Apple’s flagship will not be part of this initiative.
RED is back
As is the case with each Red (Product) partnership, a portion of the purchase amount will be donated to AIDS research. Let us recall that Apple has already been collaborating for a while with RED, an association founded in 2006 by Bono (among others).
It was the 2nd generation iPod Nano that debuted this partnership in 2006, 12 years ago and the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus had also benefited from their RED version. Let us bet that like last year, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus red will keep a price are strictly identical. These red versions being somewhat popular, it will not be too late when the pre-orders are online.
Google announces new measures against abusive advertising. After the popup and videos in autoplay, it’s the unwanted redirections that are in its collimator.
Google continues to improve the experience on its Chrome browser. As he prepares to launch an integrated ad blocker, the firm is also taking steps against pop-ups, pop-unders and now abusive redirections.
In a blog post of Chromium, the company announces three new functionalities to protect Internet users. They will be deployed on the next versions of the browser.
One of these features is aimed at redirects that automatically return the user to another page. According to Google, these redirections do not usually come from the creator of the page, but from the third party, elements integrated by the latter.
And to avoid this type of bad experience, from version 64 onwards, all redirections coming from iframes (such as embedded videos) will be blocked. Instead, the user will see an information bar. The redirection, on the other hand, can only be done if the user has clicked on the iframe.
Also, Google is also targeting a technique sometimes used by websites (especially in porn) to bypass popup blockages.
When the user clicks on a link, the content opens in a new window while the main window opens another unwanted page (usually advertising). These redirections will also be blocked from version 65 onwards.
And finally, Google Chrome will protect its users against fake play buttons that redirect to another page, clear filters and other malicious techniques that aim to make users click to redirect them to another page. You can see a lot of them on illegal download or streaming sites.
If you think that your website might be affected by these new measures, you can use the validator proposed by Mountain View to see what changes you need to make to your pages.
The practices targeted by these future updates are part of the reasons why Internet users end up installing ad blockers. And because Google makes money from online advertising, it’s in their best interest to stop using them.
Whether you’re a serious collector or a keeper of nostalgic items, Star Wars is a trend that isn’t bound to go out of style anytime soon.
At Creative Collaboration, we are all (sorry Jen) huge SW fans and have accumulated a large number of figures over the last few year!
Action figures depicting your favourite characters, dioramas of your favourite scenes, and even the highly-detailed vehicles depicted in the movies and cartoons are available on numerous sites for sale. Figurine Star Wars pas cher are now available all across the web!
Spanning across generations from the 1970s when the first movie hit the theaters, Star Wars toys have been all the rage for decades.
Fan favourites such as Luke Skywalker in his black outfit to Chewbacca and Han Solo and the always famous Millennium Falcon are often the hardest to find. Prized figures such as C-3PO, Darth Vader, and even Yoda are considered so rare that they go for untold amounts when auctioned off. Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker appear in multiple lists when speaking of popularity amongst Star Wars characters, which is hardly a surprise.
Those characters that are newer to the franchise are no less popular despite their lack of intrinsic value. Characters such as Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and even General Grievous are hard to find at times, as their popularity is rivalled by only a few.
One of the most notorious best sellers is a fan favourite and a character that has drawn a cult following since his appearance in the original trilogy, Boba Fett. Simply speaking the name to serious collectors will set chills down their spine as they can only imagine what it might be like to possess such a rare and sought after figure for their collection. Also on the rare and desired list are Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and, surprise of all surprises, a Jawa figure.
For each and every character there are numerous representations throughout the toy and collectable realm that would suit most Star Wars fans just fine. For serious collectors, though, nothing short of the roughly four-inch representations will do. Such figures from the 1970s and 1980s when the original trilogy came about are considered quite rare and fetch unseemly prices but are considered to be well worth the money, and the effort.
