A brazen break-in at France’s Palace of Versailles was thwarted over the weekend. Per a report in Le Figaro, a 31-year-old man climbed the perimeter wall of the castle grounds and entered the historic structure through a broken French window.
According to the Versailles prosecutor’s office, the man arrived by taxi to the castle grounds around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday evening. Police were alerted soon after to the threat by the taxi driver, who described the man as “carrying a sheet and taking himself for a king.” 
The spokesperson for the Palace of Versailles said in a statement that neither the furniture nor collections had taken damage during the intrusion. “This is a man who left Paris in the direction of Versailles and who allegedly told the taxi driver that he intended to enter the castle, ” she told the Agence France-Presse. “He was intercepted after breaking a window near an entrance door which gives access to the lower gallery.”

The palace reopened to the public in May as France cautiously eased its Covid-19 lockdown measures. The site, which also includes the Trianon Estate, the gardens of Versailles, and the gallery of Coaches and Park, is one of the country’s most popular tourist locations, attracting around 8 million visitors in 2019. Today, visitors are required to purchase timed entry tickets in advance and adhere to the now standard health precautions.
Built in the late 17th century by the “Sun King” Louis XIV, the 2,300-room complex housed the royal court and family until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1789. In 1837, Louis-Philippe, then the sovereign of France, dissolved Versailles’ status as a royal residence and inaugurated the structure as a museum dedicated to “the glories of France.” The palace collections house over 60,000 paintings and structures spanning the Medieval Ages up to the early 20th century.

iPad Pro next-generation line-up will reportedly support 5G mmWave technology seen on current generation iPhone 12 models in the US. This technology is expected to offer faster speeds than sub-6GHz 5G at short distances. A new report suggests that Apple is actively developing its own in-house mmWave AiP (antenna in package) to integrate it into more of its portfolio, apart from iPhone handsets. While this technology was offered only to US citizens this year with the iPhone 12 range, a wider rollout of the technology could be seen next year.In its report, DigiTimes cited sources who said that high-end iPad Pro models expected to launch in 2021 should offer 5G networks with mmWave support. It cites its sources to claim that Apple has been successful in developing its own mmWave AiP modules, and this feat could help the Cupertino giant push the new technology on other products – like the next-gen iPad models. While the report doesn’t explicitly say that the iPad Pro range will get 5G mmWave support, Apple traditionally introduces high-end features first in ‘Pro’ range. Other iPad models in Apple’s portfolio should also get support eventually.“The self-sufficiency in design and development of AiP modules also means that Apple’s next-generation high-end ‌iPad‌ products to be released in 2021 may also come with mmWave technology,” the report cites its sources as saying.With the success of developing AiP modules, the report says that Apple is moving one step further to developing RF front-end (RF-FEM) modules in-house. The company reportedly aims to supply its own modems in the future.Past reports claim that Apple is shifting its next-gen iPad Pro lineup to OLED displays. The high-end iPad Pro model will possibly include mini-LED display technology as well. Mini-LED displays use individual LEDs to produce the picture in a similar manner to OLED displays. It is said to be less expensive to manufacture and Apple is expected to push the new display technology on its iPad range first. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the next-gen iPad Pro range may launch sometime in the first half of next year.Will Apple Silicon Lead to Affordable MacBooks in India?

Here are some deals on our favorite products:
Save 32% on Sakura disposable drawing pensNow’s the time to stock up on these classic and widely beloved drawing pens from Sakura, which are loaded with archival-quality, pigment-based ink. This Black Friday deal extends to an eight-pack of assorted pens to suit all needs—you not only get six different sized nibs from 0.2mm to 0.5mm but also one brush tip and one rounder, marker-like tip.Purchase: Sakura Pigma Micron Pen Set, 8-Pack Assorted Points, $15.70 on Amazon.
36% off on Pentel colored pen setThough some have issues with Pentel’s fine-point markers, their fans love them for their vibrant color. The pen’s downsides include ink that bleeds freely and an extra firm fiber tip that can tear up your paper as you color in, making it better for journaling and filling small areas. Also note that the colors of the markers can vary noticeably from the color of the casing, so be sure to test them on a piece of scrap paper before using. At this price, though, you can try a set out and see if they work for you.Purchase: Pentel Color Pen Set of 18, $10.80 on Amazon
Save 42% on Prismacolor double-ended markersThis is the best time to purchase these covetable markers—our favorite double-ended option. Featuring a chisel-point tip at one end and a fine-point nib at the other, they flow with ease, are loaded with vivid colors, and blend together beautifully. Each pen has a single ink reservoir for color consistency when switching tips. Amazon is offering a great deal on a 12-count set, though you can’t beat Blick’s current offer on a 72-count set (see below).Purchase: Prismacolor 3620 Double-Ended Markers, 12-count, $29.35 on Amazon

52% off Pilot G2 PensNever underestimate the usefulness of a blue gel pen. The smooth-flowing gel-based ink of the Pilot G2 shows up clearly on any paper surface, and its rubber grip and weight make it comfortable to wield for hours. It is retractable for portability and refillable. While the ink dries quickly, it does not dry instantaneously, and left-handed people in particular might be irked by the smearing. Other than that, it’s perfect for just about anybody—except pen snobs, who might be put off by the fact that it’s one of the most popular pens in the United States. Currently, Amazon is offering deep discounts on the 12-pack of extra fine tip (0.5 mm) G2s in blue.Purchase: Pilot G2 Pens, Extra Fine Point, Blue Ink, 12-Pack, $12.00 on Amazon

Get up to 78% off Prismacolor double-ended markersThis is the best time to purchase these top-of-the-line markers, featuring reversible tips for coloring with either a round or chisel point.

The set includes a huge range of gorgeous colors including pastels, a range of grays, and metallics.Purchase: Prismacolor Premier Double-Ended Art Markers, $3.99-$429.99 on Blick.
Save up to 26% on Copic waterproof pensThere’s little to fault about these pens from favored brand Copic. They’re consistent, comfortable to hold, and are available in a range of nib sizes as well as a brush tip. But where they stand out in our book is in sustainability: Each is refillable and comes with a replaceable nib.Purchase: Copic Multiliner SP Pens and Set, $2.93-$91.51 on Blick.
Get up to 37% off Posca paint markersOur favorite paint pens lay down ultra-opaque paint that’s removable from nonporous surfaces like glass and mirror and permanent on porous materials such as wood and paper. Unlike the ink in most paint pens, the water-based ink in these markers is matte instead of glossy. Although the paint takes a bit longer to dry than that in other markers, the final results can’t be beat. Currently, all of Blick’s Posca sets—from extra-fine 0.7-mm markers to medium 2.5-mm tips, in a variety of colors—are on sale.Purchase: Posca Paint Markers, $3.35–$43.46 on Blick
Save up to 37% on the Marvey Uchida Le PenLe Pen has devoted fans that include artists, designers, and writers.

With a high-quality synthetic tip, it is well-suited for writing, drawing, and bullet journaling. Currently, Blick’s entire (already affordable) Le Pen inventory is up to 37% off, so you can let yourself go a little wild.Purchase: Marvey Uchida Le Pen, $1.81–$13.58 on Blick

All Prismacolor hand lettering sets are on sale at Blick, with the best deal to be found in their comprehensive 13-piece set.Purchase: Prismacolor Hand Lettering Sets, $14.55–$19.94 on Blick
Save up to 27% on Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen setsGlitter brush pens are perhaps the most pain- and mess-free way to apply glitter to your project. But all pens are not created equal, and some can be too skippy or too sheer. Spectrum Noir’s superior version glides smoothly over the page and lays down a highly pigmented ink. It can be tricky to get the right amount of ink flowing, though, so be sure to practice before you start painting on something irreplaceable. These pens can be a tad pricey, but Blick is offering sets for up to 27% off.Purchase: Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Pen Sets, $15.81–$49.18 on Blick
Get up to 42% off Faber-Castell Pitt artist pensManga artists traditionally use brushes for a dynamic line. Pens are an alternative that allow inking on the go and offer slightly more control. However, it’s key to get a pen that moves across the page easily and uses high-quality, highly pigmented ink. Faber-Castell’s Pitt artist pens, which are available in a range of nib sizes and brush tips, are excellent options for manga because they use a fast-drying, waterproof ink that that won’t run once it has dried. As a bonus, they last an astonishingly long time if stored safely. The sets at Blick are all discounted, and the set of 8 pens in shades of gray with assorted nibs is an especially good deal.Purchase: Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pens Manga Sets, $8.54–$15.75 on Blick
Save up to 52% off Staedtler Triplus Fineliner PensThe crème de la crème of ultra fine-line (0.3 mm) pens, the Staedtler Triplus is often copied, never matched. The distinctive pens—with a triangular barrel that’s comfortable in your hand—use highly pigmented water-based ink that is acid-free and makes for seriously vibrant colors on the page. Perhaps one of the best features is the “dry safe” technology that prevents the pens from drying out, even if they are left uncapped for several days. Blick is discounting all of their Triplus markers, with an especially good deal on a versatile set of 20 assorted colors.Purchase: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens, $9.60 – $30.44 on Blick
