Arkansas Gov: ‘We Have To Manage The Risk’ With COVID-19, Like ‘Wearing A Seatbelt’ While Driving

On Sunday, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson appeared on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace to discuss his state’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. “You never issued a stay-at-home order in your state, and now, you’ve officially reopened all your stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and gyms, although at reduced capacity,” Wallace said. “Governor, what’s your thinking about all that?” Hutchinson replied: Well, my thinking is that we have to manage the risk. We take the virus very seriously. It’s a risk, it causes death, but you can’t cloister yourself in home. That is just contrary to the American spirit. “And we have to discipline ourselves. We have to manage the risk. I make the comparison with – you know, …

Hackers release a new jailbreak that unlocks every iPhone

A renowned iPhone hacking team has released a new “jailbreak” tool that unlocks every iPhone, even the most recent models running the latest iOS 13.5. For as long as Apple has kept up its “walled garden” approach to iPhones by only allowing apps and customizations that it approves, hackers have tried to break free from what they call the “jail,” hence the name “jailbreak.” Hackers do this by finding a previously undisclosed vulnerability in iOS that break through some of the many restrictions that Apple puts in place to prevent access to the underlying software.
