New entrant makes early running in German 5G auction

MAINZ/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany's auction of spectrum for 5G mobile networks drew brisk initial bidding on Tuesday with prospective new entrant 1&1 Drillisch submitting bold offers for the frequencies it covets. Drillisch, run by maverick tycoon Ralph Dommermuth, is vying to become a fourth operator in Europe's largest economy - a move that could benefit consumers but pressure the margins of the three existing players. Drillisch, majority owned by United Internet , put down a marker in the first round by staking more than 20 million euros apiece for 10 of the 41 blocks of spectrum on offer.

Hundreds lumber out of last IS redoubt in east Syria

Hundreds of men, women and children trudged out of a remote eastern Syrian village Thursday where the Islamic State group has been making a suicidal last stand against advancing US-backed forces. All that remains of a sprawling cross-border "caliphate" the jihadists declared in 2014 is a battered riverside camp in the village of Baghouz near the Iraqi border. The Syrian Democratic Forces, and warplanes of a US-led coalition backing them, have rained fire on the enclave since Sunday, blitzing thousands of IS members into surrender.

Top Mueller prosecutor to leave Russia probe: reports

One of U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors is leaving the Department of Justice, according to a National Public Radio report on Thursday, possibly signaling the end of the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the presidential election. Andrew Weissmann is departing the Special Counsel's Office to teach at New York University (NYU), the NPR report said, citing two sources close to the matter.

Tesla Model Y: electric SUV to be unveiled in Los Angeles this evening
Tesla Model Y: electric SUV to be unveiled in Los Angeles this evening

Elon Musk will unveil Tesla's fourth major car, the Model Y, at an event in Los Angeles this evening. Based on the Model 3, the mid-sized SUV will sit below the Model X, and while details are still scarce, we can make some educated guesses about what the car could look like. Teaser images suggest a slightly more sophisticated external design than that of the Model X, which is perhaps a little cumbersome, but a more upright stature than the entry-level Model 3. Musk and Tesla have announced (or alluded to) various other body styles, including pickup trucks and lorries, but this kind of SUV is a popular format in many of the company's key markets. We don't think the Model Y will share the...

Republican Senator Mike Lee, who had been shopping a second bill that would keep the emergency declaration in effect temporarily, said on Wednesday the White House had said Trump would not support his proposal, so he would be voting on Thursday to end the emergency declaration.

The Utah lawmaker was the fifth Republican senator to say they back a measure passed by the Democratic-led House of Representatives to terminate Trump's declaration.

Defense spending up 5 percent in Trump's 2020 budget plan

President Donald Trump's 2020 budget provides for a five percent increase in defense spending, notably to finance building his controversial border wall, while slashing funds for diplomacy by 23 percent. If approved as is -- an unlikely scenario given opposition in Congress -- military spending would increase to $750 billion for fiscal year 2020, which begins in October 2019. This figure includes $718.3 billion for the Pentagon and $32 billion for the Energy Department to maintain and provide fuel for America's nuclear arsenal.

Tesla changes course, will keep more showrooms open

Electric carmaker Tesla is reversing course on its decision to move most of its sales online, saying it will keep many of its showrooms open -- but will need to hike prices to do so. Tesla said in a statement late Sunday the new plan will mean a three percent rise in the cost of the vehicles, but won't apply that to the lowest-priced Model 3, which is being sold for $35,000. "As a result of keeping significantly more stores open, Tesla will need to raise vehicle prices by about three percent on average worldwide," the statement said.

Samsung has also got two more foldable phones being teed up to follow the Galaxy Fold, one of which includes a clamshell design -- the patent details for which have just emerged. Which gives us,...
