Overcoming the impediments of  blindness, an 11-year-old visually impaired boy surprised everybody yesterday when he read out a bulletin on Lotus News, a Tamil channel.

Clad in an orange shirt and a fawn waist-coat, Sriramanujam read out the special news at 5 P.M. for 22 minutes with the help of Braille, while his teary-eyed parents watched him in awe.

The news he read was a follow up on Nepal earthquake and the Mahinda Rajapaksa trial.

Channel Chairman, G K S Selvakumar told a news agency that the main reason to give a chance to a visually challenged boy was to promote and create awareness about eye donation among the masses, “So that such talented people get their vision back and achieve their goals.”

Sriramanujam, who is currently studying in fifth standard of Government School at Uliyampalayam, went through these news items six times before going live.

At present, he has been assigned a task of reading the special newsweekly. Selvakumar also said that Sriramanujam would become a permanent daily news reader after some time.

Sriramanujam stated that he wanted to achieve something in life. He chose the medium of TV so that many people could see him. His ambition is to be a Collector.

“I was scared in the first two minutes but then it was business and I read it fluently,” he said.

A latest beta version of the tvOS 13.4 software update has referenced an unreleased Apple TV model which the Cupertino-based tech giant may launch soon, 9to5Mac reported on Friday.

As per report, the reference revealed a new Apple TV with the codename “T1125”, while the current Apple TV 4K is named “J105a” and the HD model is “J42d”. The letter “T” at the beginning suggests that it is an internal model.

The reference indicates this upcoming Apple TV uses the same architecture found in the A12 and A13 Bionic chip.

The Apple 4K that’s available right now uses the A10X Fusion, therefore an A12 or A13 Bionic chip would be a better upgrade.

Additionally, Apple is also looking forward to launch an e-sports-centric high-end Mac at its annual WWDC developers conference next year.

This will be the first time Apple will enter such a segment and it is still not officially disclosed whether this will be a desktop computer or a high-end MacBook Pro, though rumours state that it might be an iMac.
