"In a humiliating setback, President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their "Obamacare" repeal bill off the House floor Friday after it became clear the measure would fail badly.

It was a stunning defeat for the new president after he had demanded House Republicans vote on the legislation Friday, threatening to leave "Obamacare" in place and move on to other issues if the vote failed. The bill was withdrawn minutes before the vote was to occur.

The president's gamble failed. Instead Trump, who campaigned as a master deal-maker and claimed that he alone could fix the nation's health care system, saw his ultimatum rejected by Republican lawmakers who made clear they answer to their own voters, not to the president.

Republicans have spent seven years campaigning against former President Barack Obama's health care law, and cast dozens of votes to repeal it in full or in part. But when they finally got the chance to pass a repeal bill that actually had a chance to get signed, they couldn't pull it off."

This is pretty big. Installing apps from unknown sources is now a granular per-app permission, not a system-wide one. So you can allow Chrome or your other favorite browser or APK downloader to sideload APKs, but anything malicious that tries to do that and trick you will be blocked.

A huge win for security.

I imagine some people will buy into Levi’s Jacquard jacket for reasons only partially related to the fact that it has conductive fibers woven into it. That might be exactly what successful wearable tech needs: a product that exists equally in both worlds, without pushing too hard on either its traditional function or its connected features.

A jacket is there to keep you warm and make an aesthetic statement about your personal style. The fact that this particular jacket does some neat smartphone-related stuff is a perk — not the core focus. That Google and Levi’s accept and embrace that turns a $350 jacket into a wearable device that seems well worth the price.
