Microsoft has decided to change the logo of its browser Edge and thus permanently (at least visually) intersect with the infamous Internet Explorer.
The company introduced Edge four years ago, and the logo that almost adorned the "entrance" to the new browser was reminiscent of Internet Explorer - a browser that was once the only relevant one, and over the years has become boring and unpredictable.
The new logo is again styled "e", but does not visually rely on old times. The new logo is shaped and colored to resemble a wave, alluding to "surfing the web".
However, the change won't come immediately, as the logo is primarily reserved for Edge Chromium, the new version of the browser whose final release will be released this week.
The photo shows the Apple mask with a battery designed for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.
The mask features a protruding space that houses the external battery, and there's a camera slot for the new iPhone.
The latest models of the popular smartphone have a great battery life and are thicker because they have a larger battery. The new Smart Battery Case grip will further extend battery life.
The capacity of the battery is not known at this time, as is the information when it comes to the market.
If you have an iPhone 5, then you need to make sure you are running iOS 10.3.4.
Apple has warned iPhone 5 users to download iOS 10.3.4 by November 3, as they may lose many features. It's a problem with GPS and the exact time and date for more phone options.
Apple uses GPS for date and time, and to show it is really necessary to update.
"If you do not update, you will stop features related to the correct date and time, such as the App Store, iCloud, email and web browsing," Apple said.
This also applies to iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular users, the iPhone 4S and older iPad models.
To upgrade the software, select Settings - General - Software Update.
If you do not upgrade by November 3rd, then you will need to manually plug your phone into a computer to upgrade the software.
Facebook has recently introduced a new interface for its desktop version that gives users the choice of classic or dark display modes.
While logging in to social networking sites, some users have a pop-up window asking if they want to try out the new Facebook Page Design - Facebook Beta.
Those who respond positively will have the opportunity to switch to Dark Mode and discover the possible advantages and disadvantages of the model.
In addition to dark mode, Facebook Beta should also offer clearer and simpler usage, from larger fonts to simpler navigation.
One of the news is that Facebook will now remember where you got it by scrolling through our Newsfeed the last time you used it.
Although Facebook has so far tested the news exclusively with US registered users, it has now begun to use profiles around the world.
Washington, 26 October 2019 (MIA) - The Pentagon has contracted with Microsoft to create a data storage infrastructure. As The Washington Post reported last night, the auction was also attended by Amazon, a company considered to be the main favorite of the tender.
"Microsoft won a $ 10 billion deal in ten years if all the work was done," the Pentagon said in a statement.
Amazon reacted to the tender defeat.
"A detailed evaluation based solely on comparative offers would make the outcome different," the company said.
In addition to Amazon and Microsoft, IBM and Oracle, companies that dropped out in the early stages, also participated in the tender. Google abandoned the tender in 2018 after its staff criticized its Pentagon engagements.
The Washington Post, a newspaper owned by Jeff Bezos, Amazon's chief, sees the backdrop of defeat in this tender in constant criticism of President Donald Trump for Bezos. It is rumored that Amazon almost won the tender this spring, but the Pentagon changed its mind and decided to consider the deal again.
Google's tool in the US for cities to measure pollution and emission levels is now available in Europe.
It's a tool that combines transport and builds data from Google Maps with publicly available emission information. The tool will initially be available in Birmingham, Manchester, Dublin, Copenhagen, and other cities, and expansion is planned across Europe and other continents.
Every city can apply online.
The Environmental Insight Explorer (EIE) tool provides data in four categories, namely construction emissions, transport emissions, general emissions, and solar potential. The purpose of the tool is to help cities see the changes needed to reduce emissions. Solutions may include cycling trails or installing solar panels on buildings.
In another project called Air View, cars used for Google Street View measured air pollution as they traveled through cities including London and Copenhagen. This data is also shared through the EIE tool.
Free public Wi-Fi networks are all around us - at airports, public libraries, local cafes, shops, public transport...
What kinds of threats do public wireless internet networks pose?
Hackers know that it's pretty easy to confuse people looking for free Wi-Fi. They hope to choose their fake network while browsing through the available networks.
Hackers can easily take control of a Wi-Fi router, even if it's official if it's not configured properly. Then it is up to them to see how your information comes to them alone.
These are situations where fraudsters give their Wi-Fi network an almost identical name to a real one, hoping to click on them.
For example, "Mirza Library" will be changed to "mrezabiblioteka" and will wait for someone to "catch".
In such cases, you need to be careful about exactly which network you have "hooked up" the first time your employees tell you the Wi-Fi network or look for the sign with this information that is most often attached in a prominent place.
Five steps to help protect yourself when using public Wi-Fi networks:
If you already have to use a public Wi-Fi network, avoid those that require your personal information, such as a bank account, ID number, or address. Never perform financial transactions over a public Wi-Fi network or share personal data and passwords. Never!
Check the network name and compare it with others. Do not connect to a public network such as an airport or library unless the name information is told to you by an employee or is not clearly visible in the space.
Use protected Internet sites that use the HTTPS protocol, which is a secure version of the HTTP standard. If you do not see the letter "S" do not use that site.
Use antivirus. Many security and antivirus programs protect you from malware (malware) that tries to enter a password into your system to make it easier to access. Cybersecurity experts keep repeating this, but we will repeat: always have a firewall on and use complex passwords.
Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). A VPN is not all-powerful, but it will protect you while using public Wi-Fi (even when using your private Wi-Fi at home). See it as your own private tunnel that takes you from your location (home, library, airport, McDonald's, Starbucks) to the site you want to visit. A VPN protects the "journey" from your home site to your website.
So far only some Android devices have supported this feature, and now all Instagram users, including those with iOS operating systems, will be able to activate Dark Mode.
Instagram officially announced on its Twitter account that Dark Mode is available to all iOS 13 users, hundreds of millions of people around the world who have updated their iPhones or iPods with the new operating system, as well as all Android 10 and Android 9.0 Pie users.
Dark Mode needs to be activated in the system and automatically, after updating the application on the October 8 version you will have Dark Mode on Instagram as well.
For now, Dark Mode works just that, and will soon be included as an option in the application menu itself.
The surface of Mars is a cold desert, but billions of years ago there was an oasis, according to new research done by NASA's Rover Curiosity. One mystery remains: was there life?
Using data from the aforementioned rover, the scientists concluded that the Gale Crater, about 154.5 kilometers wide and 5.5 deep, was filled with saltwater 3 and a half billion years ago. The discovery provides a glimpse into the history of the Red Planet at a time when Mars may have had a living world.
Created from the impact of a huge asteroid, the Gale Crater is a real-time capsule of a changing Mars. It is an ideal place to explore the planet's prehistoric past.
One part of the crater, called Old Soaker, contains perhaps the clearest evidence of an ancient oasis, leaving traces of a lake bottom with dried, cracked mud. Scientists believe the region has gone through periods of humidity and drought before today's state finally comes to an end.
It is best to imagine what the oasis of Mars looked like if you look at some places on Earth with a similar geostructure. These are the salt lakes on the heights of South America, more precisely in Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina, which should look similar to that ancient Martian lake.
