Wild videos show cruise ship chaos as rough seas prompt an evacuationIncredible videos shared on Twitter are showing the wild rough seas that have led to the evacuation of 1,300 people from a cruise ship off the coast of Norway. The ship, Viking Cruise's "Viking Sky," sent a distress signal Saturday afternoon local time, reporting "engine problems in bad weather," according to CNN. And videos from both inside the cruise ship and from the shore show how bad the seas are. The BBC reports that at least one of the ship's engines was successfully restarted, enabling the Viking Sky to move a bit further from the rocky shore. Not surprisingly, the BBC also notes, "The area is known as the Hustadvika and is reportedly one of the most dangerous stretches of Norway's coast."SEE ALSO: El Niño has arrived.

iPhone 11 may finally deliver a long overdue feature

Yahoo News - Sat, 03/23/2019 - 14:30

iPhone 11 may finally deliver a long overdue featureIn any given year, it's not uncommon to see a number of conflicting reports concerning upcoming iPhone features. This, of course, isn't terribly surprising given that Apple early on in the development cycle will often test various prototype designs with different features. Indeed, this is the reason why, in the build-up to the iPhone X unveiling in 2017, we saw some reports claiming Apple was going to release a device with Touch ID built into the display itself.With that said, one of the more interesting iPhone 11 rumors we've seen pop up over the past few months centers on Apple potentially ditching the tried and true Lightning port for USB-C. More recently, though, credible reports have indicated that while that may happen in the near future, Apple with the iPhone 11 will stick with the Lightning connector.Echoing this sentiment, a new report from Macotakara claims that the iPhone 11 will feature a Lightning connector but will ship with a USB-C to Lightning cable. Far more intriguing, though, is that the power adapter will support 18W fast charging which should provide a noticeable upgrade from the 5W charger that currently ships with Apple's iPhone models. This capability has been long overdue and it's nice to see Apple finally, at long last, offering up fast-charging functionality right out of the box.The report further adds that Apple's iPhone 11 models will be able to charge certain accessories like the Apple Watch."Just as you can wirelessly charge Galaxy Watch Active and Galaxy Buds, you may be able to charge Apple Watch and AirPods with Charging Case," the report reads.Notably, reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that bilateral wireless charging would be an iPhone 11 feature in a report provided to investors just last month.As for other iPhone 11 rumors worth mentioning, there's a good chance Apple's flagship iPhone 11 model will incorporate an advanced triple lens camera scheme. Meanwhile, the entry-level iPhone 11 will reportedly boast a dual lens camera.Further, we can expect to see improved Face ID performance and reliability, improved navigation capabilities, and a bigger battery which will hopefully deliver improved battery life.
