Phillips: 55-inch 4K monitor Designed for Xbox presented


Phillips Momentum 559M1RYV - Monitor for Xbox and more

The world's first monitor with a specification "Designed for Xbox" is here and comes from Phillips, as reported by wccftech. The Phillips Momentum 559M1RYV is classified as a monitor, although it naturally looks more like a television because of its 55-inch diagonal. However, the monitor does not have a TV function. We have not yet been able to find the new monitor in German shops - but it is already listed on the German Phillips website. The monitor gets the label "Designed for Xbox" because it was developed in cooperation with Microsoft's Xbox team and an optimization especially for the Xbox One X - of course that means on the technical side that the monitor can also be used for other consoles like the Playstation 5 as well as gaming PCs should be ideally suited. For consoles there is 4K with a refresh rate of 120 Hertz via HDMI 2.1, for PC gaming 144 Hertz is also possible.

The Phillips Momentum 559M1RYV has 3x HDMI 2.1, 1x Display Port 1.4 and 1x for image transmission USB 3.1, the display type is VA, which has also proven itself with normal gaming monitors. When it comes to HDR, there is a DisplayHDR1000 certificate, and anyone who wants to play a round or watch a movie on the monitor before bed can use a blue filter mode to prevent them from being unnaturally kept awake. For wall mounting, there is a mounting option with the VESA 200 standard, whereby the wall bracket has to lift almost 26 kilos (without stand). Incidentally, the width of the monitor is a good 123 centimeters, and with the base it is a maximum of 83.4 centimeters high. We have not yet been able to determine a price, in the USA the Phillips Momentum 559M1RYV costs 1599.99 dollars, as confirmed by wccftech.

Sen. Schumer must oppose renewal of Iran nuclear deal (Guest Opinion by George Phillips)

George Phillips, of Endwell, is a former aide to Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey and former Republican candidate for Congress in the 22nd Congressional District.

The last year in the Middle East has been extraordinary.

In August the historic Abraham Accords were announced as Arab nations hostile to Israel for decades offered diplomatic recognition and the hope for a new era of peace.

This was the culmination of a Trump Mideast foreign policy that saw a pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal, crippling sanctions on the Iranian regime, moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and cutting funding to Palestinians for their support of terrorism.

In his first months in office, President Joe Biden restored $200 million in aid to the Palestinians that had been withheld. He also took the Iranian-back Houthi rebels off our nation’s list of terrorist organizations despite the fact they continue to wage war in Yemen.

The Biden administration recently removed sanctions on former Iranian officials as an overture to move back toward renegotiating the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. This 2015 deal with Obama administration and European powers gave the fledgling Iranian regime an estimated $150 billion in sanctions relief which has been used to fund their terrorist proxies in exchange for the hope of Iran limiting its development of nuclear weapons. How can such a hostile regime like Iran ever be trusted to disclose their nuclear program by Western officials they deplore?

In the middle of May the terrorist group Hamas — long supported by Iran — launched over 3,000 rockets at Israel in yet another war in the region.

Just days ago, long time conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was forced out of power in a complicated power-sharing agreement in favor of a centrist government. Its unclear how the new government will deal with the Iranian threat after years of steadfast, resilient leadership from Netanyahu.

This was followed by the election of radical cleric Ebrahim Raisi as president in Iran’s rigged election.  Raisi remains on the list of sanctioned Iranian officials and has overseen thousands of executions of dissidents during his time serving the regime. Raisi has already stated he will continue to support Shiite militia groups and continue his nation’s missile program.

My views on the Middle East were shaped by work as a young congressional aide in the early 2000s. I will never forget sitting at a congressional hearing at which the late Rep. Tom Lantos, a Democrat from California and human rights champion, said, “If we were all living here in Washington and people in nearby Bethesda, Maryland, were launching rockets at us while also sending suicide bombers here to kill civilians, how would we respond?”

Lantos was asking the audience — and all Americans — to imagine what it would like to live in Israel and face the constant threat of terrorist attacks and murder of innocent civilians. I always kept this speech in my mind and the question he asked us, which I now refer to as “The Lantos Question.”

A few years later, I had the opportunity to attend a dinner hosted by AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) in which both then Rep. Mike Pence and Sen. Chuck Schumer gave riveting speeches.

Schumer explained that his last name came from the Hebrew “shomer,” which means “watchman” or “guard.” He vowed to always be “Schumer Israel” — “Guardian of Israel” — and received a thunderous ovation from the crowd.

“The Lantos Question” came to my mind with the recent Hamas attacks. To expand the “The Lantos Question” further, how should be respond to the people funding attacks against innocent civilians — in this case Iran?

Biden administration appears intent on rushing toward reentering the Iran nuclear deal despite a weaker than ever negotiating position with the hardline Raisi coming to power. As Biden officials continue to ignore Republican opposition, perhaps the only American leader who can effectively help to counter Iran and prevent another bad deal from empowering this pariah terrorist state is Schumer.

Schumer bucked the Obama administration and the majority of members of his own party to oppose the Iran nuclear deal in 2015.

Today his Senate colleagues criticized Schumer for his lack of response to the Hamas terrorist attacks. At a recent press conference, Schumer deferred questions on the Hamas attacks to Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Menendez from New Jersey.

The concern is that Schumer is worried about a potential primary challenge from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and thus not speaking out boldly on a common-sense national security issue for fear of angering the radical left.

Ruthless attacks by brutal terrorists — like the ones perpetrated by Hamas and supported by Iran — must be condemned, and the lukewarm response by Schumer and other Democrats is certainly disconcerting.

Schumer has a chance to redeem himself by opposing the Iran deal. He could first oppose it in private with the Biden administration and threaten to offer vigorous public opposition if they go forward.

With heightened hostilities and new leaders in the Middle East during an uncertain time, Israel needs a guardian.

Is Schumer up the challenge?
