first_imgiPhone 8 renders have been on and off the Internet for quite a while now. For the first time, however, an iPhone 8 running Apple’s new iOS 11, has made its way on to the World Wide Web giving a clear picture of the futuristic anniversary edition iPhone. Since the new renders are renders and not official in any way, it’s highly recommended that you take these with a pinch of salt for your viewing pleasure. Chances are the upcoming iPhone 8 may be a whole different ball-game whenever it arrives later this year.Speaking of the new renders — courtesy iDropNews — the iPhone 8 is seen sporting an all-screen and almost no-bezel design. The home button is said to be integrated into the display itself, and the only visible signs of a bezel are seen up-top where the iPhone’s front camera, earpiece grill and other sensors are located. The design is that of a typical iPhone — sleek and curvaceous — only with more real estate to work upon.On the back, of the iPhone 8 is seen carrying a vertically aligned dual-camera setup that would apparently house AR capabilities. On the inside it is said to carry some sort of wireless charging technology.The most striking aspect of the renders, however, is the fact that the iPhone 8 on display is seen running iOS 11 giving on-lookers a clear view of what Apple’s soon to be released operating system would look like on the next iPhone. Everything, right from the unified lock screen and notification center, the redesigned Control Centre and the App Store, to the Apple Pay integration into iMessage, are shown in their full glory.The iOS 11 update which is now available as a Developer Beta Preview will be available for all this fall probably around the same time that Apple announces its next iPhone. The iOS 11 update is a giant step for the iPhone and a monumental leap for the iPad, according to Apple. It brings along a slurry of new features — largely to the iPad — that build upon the incumbent release creating a user experience that is supposedly a lot better for the end-user than last year’s iOS 10. At the same time, iOS 11 lays ground work for the future, in that it “opens up to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps.”advertisementAlso Read: iOS 11 at WWDC 2017: 11 features that make it Apple’s biggest iOS update to datelast_img read more

first_imgMILAN — Ajax is a team that many soccer fans around the world just love to love, especially when they win with flair in a competition like the Champions League.And this season’s Ajax team has oodles of flair.Much like the great “Total Football” squads from the early 1970s and the nearly unbeatable teams from the mid-1990s, Ajax and its latest homegrown side make watching soccer fun and exciting.Unless you’re a fan of Juventus, or Real Madrid, or any of the team’s rivals in the Dutch league.“Yyyeeeeaaaahhhhhhhhh,” former Ajax striker Patrick Kluivert wrote on Twitter, along with the final score in Ajax’s 2-1 victory over Cristiano Ronaldo and his Juventus teammates in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. “Come on guys.”Kluivert had plenty to be happy about. He was the one who scored the only goal in Ajax’s 1-0 win over AC Milan in the 1995 Champions League final, the last of the club’s four European Cup titles.FILE – In this June 2, 1971 file photo, Ajax striker Johan Cruyff, center, in action during the during the final of the European Cup against Greece’s Panathinaikos, at Wembley Stadium, in London. Ajax is a team that many soccer fans around the world just love to love, especially when they win with flair in a competition like the Champions League. Their victory against Juventus on Tuesday, April 16 – coming only a few weeks after the team eliminated three-time defending champion Real Madrid in the last 16 – put Ajax through to the semifinals 3-2 on aggregate. They will next face either Manchester City or Tottenham. (AP Photo/Laurence Harris, File)Ajax followed that victory with another trip to the final in 1996 and a spot in the semifinals in 1997. Both times they lost to Juventus.Tuesday’s victory — coming only a few weeks after the team eliminated three-time defending champion Real Madrid in the last 16 — put Ajax through to the semifinals 3-2 on aggregate. They will next face either Manchester City or Tottenham.“What a special @ChampionsLeague night in Turin,” former Ajax and Juventus goalkeeper and current Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar wrote on Twitter. “Winning against @juventusfc and now we go to England for the semifinals.”Van der Sar’s tweet was accompanied by a short selfie video showing him in somewhat disbelief, laughing, screaming and pumping his fist in pure joy.That excitement around the team is just as palpable as the excitement they create on the field, with midfielder Frenkie de Jong and 19-year-old captain Matthijs de Ligt leading the way.But Ajax has gone through this before. The team’s highs and lows are well known and well documented.“For many years Dutch football kept getting worse, but now we’re coming back,” Ajax coach Erik ten Hag said. “In every country there are better periods and ones that aren’t as good.“We’re a small footballing country, it can happen that sometimes things don’t go well but now there are incredible talents and with them things can only get better.”The first great Ajax run started with Johann Cryuff and Rinus Michels in the early 1970s. Michels, who was the coach of the team, is widely credited with helping create “Total Football,” a flowing, attacking style of play which made Ajax the darlings of the game. Cruyff was the face of the project, becoming one of the greatest to ever play.But after winning the European Cup — the precursor to the Champions League — in 1971, Michels left for Barcelona. After winning the title again in 1972 and 1973, Cryuff left for Barcelona and the decline began.The team in the 1990s went through a similar fate, with players being sold off to make money for the club.And this year’s Ajax can expect the same with De Jong headed to Barcelona next season in a deal that could be worth up to 86 million euros ($98 million).“If we play well, it’s normal that players leave,” Ten Hag said. “We’re not Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City or Juventus. It depends on the economy of football, but we’re creative in building the team, with balance.“We play with a philosophy and we will do so in the upcoming years, too. We will fight for every player, I hope to not lose too many.”The next step may be to go back to “The Future” — the name of the club’s storied youth academy.“Several players will leave but Ajax’s youth academy is strong,” Ten Hag said. “We also have a very good scouting system. If some players leave, we will bring in other strong ones to go forward and to grow.“We start again from zero every season.”By: Daniella Matar, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
