Microsoft Lumia 940 XL gets benchmarked, has specs outed

Pacosite's Blog

The upcoming Microsoft Lumia 940 XL has been rumored for a few months at this point, as the phablet half of the company’s two Windows 10-running flagships for the latter part of the year. Complementing it in the software giant’s roster will be the smaller Lumia 940.

Today we get a very good idea about what to expect from the Lumia 940 XL in terms of specs, because it’s been put through the paces of a benchmark that thankfully lists the most important hardware information in its online database.

And it mostly confirms past mumblings about the device. So, the Lumia 940 XL (model number RM-1100) will sport a 5.7-inch QHD (2,560×1,440) touchscreen, as well as a rear camera featuring a resolution of at least 17 MP – but certainly more, since this benchmark always underrepresents these values. So we assume there will at least be a 20 MP lens…

US Supreme Court Ruling Impacts Jail Operations

The National Law Forum

On June 22, 2015, the United States Supreme Court issued an important decision for all North Carolina counties operating county jails in which individuals are held detainees awaiting trial. In Kingsley v. Hendrickson, No. 14-6368, the Supreme Court, in a 5-4 opinion authored by Justice Stephen Breyer, ruled that in excessive force claims brought by pretrial detainees, the plaintiff need only show the force used against him was objectively unreasonable, not that the officer subjectively intended to injure him. This case is important because the court had never before articulated what standard applies to the excessive force claims of those individuals charged, but not yet convicted, of crimes. For private citizens not charged or convicted of a crime, the standard is one of objective reasonableness (someone being arrested). For prisoners who have been convicted of a crime, the standard is higher and requires the plaintiff to show the officer subjectively intended to cause the harm. As accused…
