Verizon finally reveals actual 5G coverage maps
Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg | Photo by Chris Welch / The Verge Verizon is addressing one of the biggest criticisms about the company’s growing 5G network: a lack of traditional coverage maps. As noted by PC Mag, today the carrier has finally published maps where customers in 5G cities can get lightning-quick data speeds from its millimeter-wave technology. Earlier today, Verizon launched 5G in Boston, Houston, and Sioux Falls. Service is now available in 18 cities, and the company says it will reach 30 by the end of 2019. Verizon continues to claim that it’s putting 5G “in locations where more people can experience ultra-fast speeds together” — near landmarks and high-traffic areas of each market. Recently, it brought 5G to sections of football stadiums. PC Mag Here’s what the company’s map for... Continue reading…

Trump's Syria retreat is giving ISIS 'time and space' to strike the West, blistering Pentagon report says
Associated Press A Pentagon Inspector General report says President Donald Trump's decision to retreat from northeastern Syria and allow a Turkish incursion there gives ISIS the ability to rebuild and plan attacks on the West. Prior to the Turkish incursion in early October, a Pentagon report indicated that ISIS was already beginning to regroup, committing assassinations and extorting civilians. The report also indicates that some of the Turkish-backed opposition forces currently fighting in northeastern Syria may have previously helped smuggle ISIS fighters. Visit Business Insider's home page for more stories. A damning new report from the Department of Defense's Inspector General finds that President Donald Trump's chaotic Syria withdrawal opened the door for ISIS to regroup in Syria. A previous quarterly report from the Inspector General also blamed the partial withdrawal of US troops from Syria earlier this year for ISIS's transformation from a "a territory-holding force" to an insurgent group, with continued attacks and new moneymaking ventures in both Syria and Iraq.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here’s what it was like to live in a city controlled by ISISSee Also:Turkey doesn't want to hold onto foreign ISIS fighters but neither does the rest of the world.

Inside Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein's controversial 20-year friendship
Anthony Devlin-WPA Pool/Getty Images, Rick Friedman/Corbis via Getty Images New charges against sex offender Jeffrey Epstein this summer brought his relationship with Britain's Prince Andrew under renewed scrutiny. Allegations from women who say they had sexual contact with the Duke of York when they were underage in addition to his documented relationship with the disgraced financier have led to mounting suspicions Andrew was involved in the abuse reported among Epstein's associates. On August 24, Prince Andrew released a statement through Buckingham Palace that said he met Epstein in 1999, saw him "no more than only once or twice a year," including after his 2010 release from prison, but that he did not "see, witness, or suspect" any of the behavior that led to his sex trafficking indictment. The Duke's November 16 interview with the BBC did very little to quell concerns over the allegations that included he was a key part of Epstein's network of abuse and had coerced an underage woman into sex. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Prince Andrew's relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein came under renewed scrutiny in June 2019 as investigators pursued new trafficking and conspiracy charges against the disgraced financier. The Daily Mail surfaced footage of the Duke of York at Epstein's Manhattan home reportedly filmed in December 2010, after Epstein had faced jail time for underage prostitution charges and registered as a sex offender. The footage is the latest in the nearly 20 years of documented contact between Andrew and Epstein, a time identified to have overlapped with when prosecutors said Epstein recruited and abused underage girls. The Duke's name was in Epstein's "Little Black Book" and on flight logs for the financier's plane. Buckingham Palace has never denied a friendship between Epstein and Andrew but has repeatedly denied that the prince had sexual relations with any underage girls. On August 24, Prince Andrew released a statement through Buckingham Palace that said he met Epstein in 1999 and saw him "infrequently and probably no more than only once or twice a year," including after his 2010 release from prison. The Duke of York called it "a mistake and an error" to see Epstein after his first conviction of soliciting minors for prostitution. Andrew also said in the statement that he stayed in "a number" of Epstein's residences, but that he did not "see witness, or suspect" any of the criminal behavior that led to his June 2019 indictment. In a widely panned November 16 interview with the BBC, the Duke made several elaborate claims in an attempt to discredit the allegations by a woman who has claimed he kept her as a "sex slave," but the interview sparked incredulous responses and did very little to quell concerns over the allegations. Some experts and lawyers have urged Andrew to get involved with the FBI inquiry into Epstein, but he did not appear to be planning to offer information on his late friend. Here's a look at the pair's connections through the years.Epstein and Andrew were reportedly introduced in the 1990s by Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's then-girlfriend and accused "madam." (Photo by Joe Schildhorn/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images) Epstein and Prince Andrew were reportedly introduced in the 1990s by Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein's then-girlfriend, The Guardian reported in 2015. The pair formed a close friendship through the late 90s and early 2000s. The Daily Mail reported that in June 2000, Epstein and Maxwell attended the Dance of the Decades, a massive celebration at Windsor Castle hosted by the Queen to mark Prince Andrew's 40th, Princess Anne's 50th, Princess Margaret's 70th, and Prince William's 18th birthdays. In the following years, the Prince Andrew reportedly hosted Epstein and Maxwell for shooting parties at Sandringham House, the Queen's country retreat in Norfolk. He also hosted Epstein and his entourage at Balmoral — the Queen's estate in Scotland — for a night about 20 years ago, the Daily Mail reported, citing an unnamed woman who was part of the trip. She was a model in her 20s at the time. Epstein hosted the Prince Andrew at his Palm Beach estate, Vanity Fair reported, citing a sworn deposition by a former employee. The employee said that the prince attended naked pool parties, where he regularly enjoyed massages by a harem of adolescent girls. Prince Andrew said he "neither attended nor was aware of any naked pool parties," Vanity Fair added. The duke publicly stood by Epstein through jail time and his registration as a sex offender. WPA Pool / Getty Images The Daily Beast reported in July 2019 that Andrew was a regular guest at Epstein's Upper East Side mansion, but was particularly a star guest at a dinner party around the year 2000, where Epstein called the prince "Andy," and was "clearly confident" in his presence among 16 other guests. "He wanted to show how comfortable he was in his presence, and make clear that while he was a guest of honor, he was a regular, routine, and repeat guest," the source told the Daily Beast. After Epstein was released from a 13-month prison sentence and registered as a sex offender in 2008, Andrew was a public fixture at his side as he made his debut back into society, including at a party that was reportedly also attended by the likes of Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos. However, the Duke's relationship with Epstein turned up some consequences for his standing among the British elite. In 2011, Andrew was forced to step down after serving 10 years in his position as the special UK representative for trade after his friendship with Epstein sparked calls for him to resign. According to a 2011 Vanity Fair article, Andrew even told a friend who objected against his friendship with Epstein that they were "such a puritan" and that he was "going to be loyal to him." Toby Melville/Reuters Here's what the unnamed friend told Vanity Fair feature writer Edward Klein for the August 2011 issue: "After Jeffrey was convicted, I phoned Andrew and told him, 'You cannot have a relationship with Jeffrey. You can't do these things.' "And he said, 'Stop giving me a hard time. You're such a puritan.' "From there, our conversation descended into a screaming match, and finally Andrew said, 'Leave me alone. Jeffrey's my friend. Being loyal to your friends is a virtue. And I'm going to be loyal to him.'" Epstein was convicted of sex crimes and registered as a sex offender in 2008, three years before the Vanity Fair article, and at a time when many of Epstein's former associates had already distanced themselves from him. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the Vanity Fair report.

14 things everyone had in their homes in the 2010s
Vince Bucci / Getty Images The decade is coming to a close and the world has changed a lot since 2010. Items that were once commonplace in most homes, such as Blu-Ray players and selfie sticks, have been replaced by new inventions. From Keurig machines to Wii consoles, here are 14 things everyone had in their homes in the 2010s. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 2010s were a time of massive innovation, and many items that were popular during the decade have gone out of style. Keurig machines, iPads, and Wii consoles were common sights in most American homes throughout the decade. Take a look at 14 items everyone had in their homes in the 2010s. Most people had desktop computers at the beginning of the decade. Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Today, laptops are a more common option when it comes to someone's main computer. However, at the beginning of the decade, many families still had a desktop that everyone could use. Snuggies were all the rage in the early 2010s. Reuters/ Jessica Rinaldi The Snuggie first became popular in 2008, and by the end of 2010, the company had sold 25 million blankets, according to The New York Times.  As the number of styles available increased and sales continued to grow, it became more and more common to find the product in people's homes in place of blankets throughout the early years of the decade. Wii consoles were everywhere at the start of the decade. Hiroko Masuike/Getty Images The Nintendo Wii was released in 2006 to much fanfare, and the accompanying Wii Fit came out in 2008, making it one of the most popular gaming consoles at the beginning of the 2010s. But the original Wii was discontinued in 2013 according to Neowin, and Nintendo's successor, the Wii U, was a disappointment to consumers.
