In this corner Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and in this other Felipe VI. And in the middle a great controversy: the Spanish Conquest.
AMLO has asked the King of Spain on Monday, March 25 to apologize for a true reconciliation between the Mexican people and the Spanish people. In a video posted on Twitter, the Mexican president explains his intention.
"I already sent a letter to the King of Spain and the Pope to make an account of grievances and to ask pardon of the native peoples for the violations of what is now known as human rights, there were killings, impositions … called conquest was made with the sword and the cross, "he said. We can see it below:
The letter is addressed to the King but was channeled through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This, in the middle of the fifth centenary of the arrival in Mexico of the conquistador Hernán Cortés.
"The arrival, five hundred years ago, of the Spaniards to the current Mexican lands can not be judged in the light of contemporary considerations," the Spanish government responded in a statement. "Our brotherly peoples have always known how to read our shared past without anger and with a constructive perspective, as free peoples with a common heritage and an extraordinary projection".
In social networks, the AMLO video has had a great impact. At the time of writing this note exceeded 1,000 comments and 5,000 likes. Some took the matter with a lot of humor:
Do not forget Robben
And the apology pa 'when
The Pope answers
But there were also reactions in favor, or not so much

Once you are on a plane, your destination is in the hands of the pilot. You go where you want to go. Unfortunately, the pilot of a recent British Airways flight from London to Düsseldorf ended up in Scotland, 845 kilometers away, in a plane full of people who wanted to go to Germany. All for a paperwork error.
The BBC says that passengers only realized the error when the clueless pilot announced to his confused passengers: "Welcome to Edinburgh." The passengers thought it was a joke until the flight attendants asked those who wanted to go to Düsseldorf that day to raise their hands.
All the passengers raised their hands.
"The pilot said he had no idea how it happened. He said it had never happened before and that the crew was trying to figure out what he could do, "one passenger told the BBC.
The flight plan was sent by WDL Aviation. The company is working with British Airways to find out what happened, according to the BBC. It seems that a flight plan of the previous day could arrive by mistake to the agenda of the following day.
British Airways is communicating with customers who made the "involuntary stopover" in Edinburgh, although the airline has refused to comment on how many travelers were affected by the error.
Nintendo could well decline its hybrid console, the Switch, on different formats to better target different types of gamer. Rumors about a new version of the Switch have been circulating for several months now, but when a Wall Street Journal reporter indicates that the release is scheduled for this summer, everything becomes more concrete. Thus, according to Takashi Mochizuki, who quotes sources familiar with the matter, Nintendo would prepare two new versions to complete its range and extend its offer – the idea would not be to replace the original switch.
We would end up with a better version to hit the hardcore gamers – at least to try to seduce them. It would not be as powerful as a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X. The second version is perhaps the most interesting, it would be more affordable and easily transportable. The design could also evolve, but do not expect an upheaval at this level.
Recall that Nintendo has sold over 33 million switches since its release – a great performance. On the other hand, the target of the Switch 20 million sold during the fiscal year 2018 has been revised downward. The arrival of these new versions should facilitate sales and revive the interest of users.
Captain Marvel continues its stellar performance at the box office, as it recently surpassed the $ 900 million mark in the global collection.
The superhero movie, with Brie Larson in the character of Captain Marvel, has grossed more than $ 910 million worldwide in just 19 days, Disney reported Sunday. Of them, US $ 322 million came from the US market and US $ 589 were obtained from the rest of the world.
Captain Marvel it is already ranked 10th in the highest grossing superhero films worldwide, and ranks 21st in the United States.
In the international market, movie revenues have driven it above Spider-Man 3 (2007), which raised US $ 891 million globally; Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), which obtained US $ 880 million; Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), which won $ 874 million at the worldwide box office.
On Friday, the collection of Captain Marvel I had surpassed that of another movie with a female superhero, Wonder Woman (2017), which generated US $ 822 million globally.
The film dominated the box office for two weeks in a row but gave way to the honor this weekend Us, the new film by director Jordan Peele.
Us ranked third in the horror films that have grossed the most in its opening weekend, achieving US $ 70.3 million at the US box office, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The other two blockbuster horror films that Us are Item (2017), with US $ 123.4 million, and Halloween (2018), with US $ 76.2 million.
Android smartphone users now have access to the service
free file sharing
Firefox Send recently unveiled by the Mozilla Foundation. The Android application is
available in beta on Google Play. The system works exactly like
for the web version of the service with two formulas. The first allows
share up to 1GB of data without the need to register. The
second allows up to 2.5 GB with additional options for
set the number of downloads and the link expiration time
sharing, with the only condition to connect with a Firefox account.
Data transfers are encrypted end-to-end and can
also be protected by a password.
Firefox Send comes to compete with other services, like Dropbox, Box,
Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and WeTransfer. But Mozilla presents his
alternative as being centered on privacy since it does not leave
traces on the web. What about an iOS version of Firefox Send? " We will go over
using the beta version of Send for Android and determine if it is
necessary to launch iOS Said Mozilla in a statement.
This new service is part of Mozilla's efforts to
extend its reach beyond its best known product, the browser
Firefox, which has lost popularity compared to Google Chrome.
Most of us drive cars, but we share the road with large, heavy trucks. These giants of highways can pose a significant risk to safety if we neglect. A redditor and the stbb truck driver share their experiences and explain why you should never drive next to a large transport vehicle.
Never (and I can not emphasize this enough) you drive next to a truck, ever. Scenario: you are in the left lane trying to pass a truck on the right. If there is a car in front of you, and both are not passing the truck fast enough, and you are in "persistent" mode waiting for the guy in front of you to move, you are in a zone of real mortal danger. Two horrible things can happen to you. The first and most obvious, if the truck loses control or has to change lanes quickly, they will crush you because the truck has nowhere to go. You are the path of least resistance. And you're probably going to die. Secondly, trucks tend to have tire blowouts. If you've never seen the power of a truck tire blowout, take a minute to watch these videos on YouTube. You can be quite frightened from the comfort of your chair. And if you get scared while behind the wheel, you will lose control of your own car and drive under the platform or off the road. This is the equivalent of hearing the explosion of a bomb and sometimes the tire leaves the truck with such force that it will cause a car to get off the road. Your reaction skills probably will not save you. Many times, the truck can lose control and crash. It always deviates just before the worst, and if you are in that zone of extermination … you can imagine it. Therefore, pass the truck very quickly or get enough space to avoid the truck if it has a blowout, then pass it quickly once the car in front of you moves.
This tip belongs to a broader open letter written by stbb where it explains why trucks drive the way they do and how you can stay safe by sharing the road with them. While it may seem annoying when you are in a hurry or want to get to your destination quickly, you can make the road much safer for you and the other drivers if you follow their advice. [Reddit]
If you think your Android phone or iPhone is already too expensive, wait to see more. Foldable smartphones such as the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, devices ready for 5G, will soon raise prices well beyond the € 1,000 mark that was so far the ceiling of premium smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold starts at $ 1,980 for the 4G version, a price that Samsung justifies as its foldable phone is a luxury device that is also a true hybrid phone tablet. The Korean company has not yet announced the price of its 5G versions, the Galaxy Fold 5G on sale on April 26 or the Galaxy S10 5G which is expected later this summer in the US. Meanwhile, Huawei's collapsible smartphone, the Mate X, will cost buyers 2,300 euros. Huawei also places its foldable Mate X in this new hybrid smartphone category.
Inflation on the "classics"
But even if the "classic" smartphones of 2019 do not bend and do not have a 5G, they will also experience price inflation. The Galaxy S10 costs 20% more than the median price of the Galaxy S9, the prices of the Galaxy S Plus and Note of
Samsung are also up for standard models. Yes the
Galaxy S10E sells for € 759, but the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus
are much more expensive than their Galaxy S9 counterparts a year ago.
Even the OnePlus 6T grew 3.8% over the OnePlus 6 in four months. We also witnessed a constant escalation on the part of
OnePlus, whose prices go up each time a new model arrives. Likewise, the Motorola G7 has increased by 20% compared to the Moto G6.
And that's for ticketing. Increase storage capacity
and the smartphones come back even more expensive. For example, if you
want an iPhone XS with a storage capacity of 512 GB, you
will pay 35% more. Apple's prices have risen at a steady pace
so much for his iPhone
standard size only for the Plus and Max lines, making the iPhone
XS Max a luxury product.
New technologies and new designs such as folding screens and 5G are pushing up prices and positioning brands in an ultra-high-end segment that makes every sale more profitable for the manufacturer. And this quest for value is important in a climate where phone sales (volume) slow down and users keep their devices for three years or more.
The fact that users are buying more and more expensive devices in the high-end market underlines the importance of the smartphone as a universal and essential device for communication, work, photography and entertainment. And because processing power, camera technology, battery life, and Internet data speeds are improving generation after generation, the value that users attach to their smartphone can only increase.
"Consumers are willing to pay a premium for a mobile phone because it's probably the most important product in their lives "says Ben Wood, Senior Research Analyst at CCS Insight.
Data from 13 representative smartphone models from 2016 to 2019 show a trend of sharp price increases that we see growing in 2019 and beyond.

Rising prices are not unusual in themselves. Making faster, more efficient components, such as processors and multi-sensor cameras, is more expensive. The financial burden of research and development of new materials is also taken into account in the final product. With a few exceptions, the prices of major brand phones are rising. The rise is immediately noticeable when comparing the prices of today's phones with the same model released two or, in some cases, three years ago.
It's worth noting that Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL cost the same as Pixel and Pixel XL. However, Google has increased the price of Pixel 3 by 23%, without adding a second camera to the back and making minimal design changes. Google has raised the price to face the competition.
Mid-range phones are still affordable, but are not immune. If competition remains fierce in the entry and mid-range where Motorola, Nokia, Xiaomi and Huawei produce excellent smartphone at low prices, prices also tend to increase in percentage, as is the case for Moto G6 at G7.
Apple launched its iTunes Music Store in April 2003 and years later, in September 2006, it changed its name to the iTunes Store and began selling movies.
"Here we go again! First music, then TV shows and now movies," Steve Jobs, then Apple's chief executive, said in a press release about that launch in April 2003. "In less than a year we have grown from offer only five TV programs to offer more than 220 […] and now we hope to do the same with the movies. iTunes sells more than a million videos a week, and we expect to match that with the movies in less than a year, "added the legendary executive, who died in 2011.
A year after the movies arrived in iTunes, in January 2007, a DVD rental company based in Los Gatos, California, would completely transform the rental and sale of shows and movies. Netflix, founded in 1997 by Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph, had destroyed the business model of Blockbuster stores (of which there is currently only one store in the world, more than 9,000) with the delivery of DVDs at home. and in 2007 it was preparing to conquer the frontier of the delivery of these contents through the Internet, directly to the computers of its customers.
In the last fiscal quarter of 2018, Netflix had revenues of US $ 15,794 million and gains of US $ 1,211 million. During this period, the company added 8.8 million subscribers worldwide for a total of 139 million paid customers. The video platform said it will invest up to US $ 10 billion in original content in 2019, while in 2017 it was said that Apple would invest about US $ 1,000 million in original content (look at this list of all series and projects that Apple has announced or been rumored).
According to a study by the Pew Research Center, currently 61 percent of Americans aged 18 to 29 say that the way they watch television is through a streaming service. And according to a study by Deloitte, subscribers of streaming services in the United States hire on average three services at a time. So it seems like a good time for Apple to enter the world of streaming.
But many believe that the model that Apple will bet on March 25 will not look so much like Netflix. According to Recode, Apple is planning above all to sell services and third-party programming, a model more similar to Amazon Prime Video that sells and rents movies and offers connections to other channels (although this service has had enormous success with original content such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Transparent Y Mozart in the Jungle with Gael García Bernal).
My partner Gonzalo Jiménez did an excellent analysis comparing the contents – and the programming agreements – of the most important platforms of the moment. I also wrote this analysis of the competition that Apple already has in terms of the production of original content in Spanish.
Beyond the content
But to think that the power of Apple lies in the content is not to be very clear about the true potential of the giant of Cupertino. No other company in the world integrates hardware and software offerings like Apple and the key of any announcement on March 25 will be how the company manages to unite all this portfolio of products in a new, unique and complete solution for the consumer of online content. – and, even, that it manages to attract consumers who do not carry out their digital activity within Apple's products.
In January during CES Apple announced something that, despite having gone unnoticed, is as important to the new service as the original content ads. The Samsung TV line of 2019 will be able to broadcast movies and iTunes programs in more than 100 countries, as well as being compatible with AirPlay 2. For a new service of streaming Apple was successful, it was key to take that platform to other devices that do not have the apple logo.
It is very clear that the Services heading, where the new service of streaming and where Apple Music, iCloud, iTunes and the App Store fall, is increasingly important for Apple, as is clear in its most recent annual report. (Although we must not deceive ourselves: the iPhone accounted for 63 percent of the company's sales in 2018). Apple has 1.4 billion devices of its brand active worldwide and totals 360 million total subscribers to all its services, up from 120 million just a year ago. One of the strategies that has been mentioned is that Apple could offer its original contents for free to the users of their devices.
In terms of total revenue from Apple, the Services increasingly represent a larger slice: they went from 11 percent in 2016 to 14 percent in 2018. Not only that: they have shown steady growth, a 24 percent increase in the last fiscal year to US $ 37,190 million. In comparison, both the total share and the revenues represented by the iPad and the Mac have fallen in recent years. And the iPhone has seen a lot of competitive pressure in markets like China in the last year. Therefore, for Apple it is very important to continue supporting this category. Another reason is that it is much more cost effective than hardware products. While the profitability of the Services is almost 63 percent, that of the products is just over 34 percent, which makes a considerable difference.
In addition, Apple Music has 50 million users worldwide. Service streaming Apple music, presented in 2015, is the best example to date of how Apple integrates its services in all its platforms, something that could emulate with the video service.
And since the end of 2016 the TV app is available that integrates your purchases of TV shows and movies in one place, your income from the iTunes Store, your personal video and some of the services of streaming for those who pay. Along with the TV app, the company announced the tvOS software to allow the development of apps and a new remote control of its Apple TV streaming box that can be controlled with Siri voice commands, which converted the device – and its new interface – in something much more useful and smart for the consumption of media.
Also, among the offers, Apple is expected to announce a new news service that will include subscriptions to newspapers and magazines ( He expects it to include newspapers like The Wall Street Journal, but not to The New York Times or The Washington Post).
It would make a lot of sense for Apple to take advantage of the March 25 event to explain how all these services are consolidated and to integrate music, news and video services – perhaps through a unique subscription package, or via a global interface that covers all these offers. The idea would be to have a service like Amazon Prime where you can subscribe to all kinds of streaming services, save your digital content, and manage your entertainment consumption on all the devices you want with a single app. (Netflix would not be part of those offers). Some believe that with this combination of services, Apple could have 100 million users in its mega-content service in three years.
Spotify and Hulu already offer combined packages of their music and video services for US $ 10 per month. Amazon Prime, meanwhile, also includes music, books and free two-day shipping, among other things, for $ 129 a year – or $ 12.99, same price as the most popular Netflix package. This is faced by Apple, who charges US $ 9.99 a month for Apple Music and from US $ 0.99 for 50GB to US $ 9.99 for 2TB of storage in iCloud.
According to the WSJ, Apple is preparing to offer a package of HBO, Showtime and Starz for US $ 9.99 within the TV app, and that a new news service will cost US $ 9.99 a month.
Editor's note: This article was updated on March 24 with information from the WSJ on the prices of the content packages.
A key to any new service in 2019 – whether from Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Netflix or Apple – is how it harnesses the power of the cloud. Apple has many customers tied to its iCloud storage service, and has made muscle with the streaming of music with Apple Music. Now we need to see how you will put all these offers together and if you can propose a solution to the consumption of content that no one else has ever imagined before.
