The New Features in Android Oreo : Part Two

Android Oreo’s new features are abundant, and make for an Android update that’s well worth the effort. Along with the update comes the very clear message from Google about their Pixel devices: Google Pixel is the smartphone to have if you want to have the latest and greatest features from the mothership. Today we’re running down a set of new Android 8.0 Oreo features that we didn’t cover in yesterday’s part 1.

In our 10 New Android 8.0 Oreo features part 1, we covered some of the lesser-known features that are new to Android in Oreo. Today we’ve got a video from Google that shows developers what they need to do to take full advantage of the update. This video gives a bunch of insight on what apps will have in the near future – alongside the features given to all users in the basic build of Android.

Perhaps the most important feature in this newest update (for developers, anyway) is Background Execution Limits. For the end user, this means that apps won’t be able to run as freely in the background at all times. Not nearly as freely as before this update, anyway.
That means better battery life for you, the end user, and a slightly different process for the developer.
Big developers will end up finding a way around this, likely with a bit of dialogue that asks the end user to allow them to use more data – so be on the lookout for that. Don’t necessarily say yes or no right away – just be conscious that it might be coming quick.
Android 8.0 Oreo is available for download for most of Google’s latest devices now. This includes the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Pixel, and Pixel XL. If you’re one of the lucky ones to get this update on a device not on that short list, let us know!

Rescue Party of Android Oreo tries to kick out bootloop killjoys

Much of what’s new in Android 8.0, now officially named Oreo, has already been dug up in the betas leading to yesterday’s launch. It seems, however, that Google managed to sneak in a new feature that deserves a bit more attention. The oddly named “Rescue Party” tries to save phones from bootloops and potentially save Google, or one of its OEMs, from class action lawsuits. That said, it isn’t yet time to party as this hidden feature is far from being a panacea.

Bootloops, where a device is helplessly stuck in an endless cycle of booting and rebooting, has been at the heart of lawsuits hurled against LG, Huawei, and Google, particularly in cases where Nexus devices are involved. In some cases, the error might be the user’s fault, after needlessly tinkering with the smartphone. In a lot of cases, however, the cause might actually be deeper.

Rescue Party practically only solves the first case, or at least the easiest ones. In practice, what it does is to try to recover the device’s last known working state at different levels. If the bootloop isn’t fixed on one level, Rescue Party goes deeper and wider. Each level might involve wiping data clean, so you could end up with a factory reset. That, however, is better than ending up with paperweight.

To some extent, Rescue Party is rather simplistic and almost crude. The way it is activated isn’t exactly a stroke of genius either. Rescue Party kicks in when the system detects that the system_server is restarted more than 5 times within 5 minutes or that a persistent system app crashes more than 5 times in 30 seconds. Some readers might recall that Android 7.1 included a “panic mode” anti-malware feature that forcibly dumps a user to the home screen if the back button is pressed more than four times in rapid succession.

Will Rescue Party save phones from bootloops for good? Hardly. As there are quite a number of causes for a bootloop, it is almost impossible for an automated feature like this to catch and fix them all. And in some cases, the problem might be caused by a mix of hardware and firmware, like what seems to be the case in the Nexus 5X and 6P.

Midnight Edition line of Nissan Now Have Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier trucks

Nissan has been offering vehicles with blacked out wheels and trim for several model years now and has recently added its three trucks to the Midnight Edition family. The trucks include the Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier mid-size truck. With the addition of the three trucks to the Midnight family, there are now nine models available in Midnight Editions. The others include the Altima, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue, and Sentra. 

Nissan claims great success with the Midnight Edition models selling two times faster than standard models. The 2018 Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD Midnight Edition trucks will launch in late fall 2017 and as of now pricing is not finalized. However, Nissan promises that there will be an average of a 50% discount on the items in the package compared to buying them all individually.

“Following the tremendous response to the original Maxima SR Midnight Edition, we’ve created a complete portfolio of the popular blacked-out Midnight Edition look among our core Nissan sedan, crossover and SUV models,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, Nissan Sales, Nissan North America, Inc. “We expect the strong customer appeal to continue with the expansion of the Midnight Edition package to our TITAN, TITAN XD and Frontier pickups.”

Midnight Edition Titan and Titan XD trucks will get black grille with dark inset, dark headlights, black fog light finishers, black fender louvers on the Titan XD, black outside mirrors and door handles, black step rails, black exterior badges, black 20-inch wheels, body color front and rear bumpers, charcoal interior trim, and available Midnight Edition floor mats. The truck will come in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Pearl White colors on Crew Cab SV and SL 4×4 and 4×2 models. Titan XD Midnight Package cars are only on Crew Cab SV and SL 4×4 models with the Cummins diesel engine.

The Frontier Midnight Edition gets a black grille, 18-inch black wheels, semi-gloss black step-rails, body color front and rear bumpers, black outside mirrors and door handles, black badging, and available midnight Edition floor mats. The truck is only offered on Crew Cab 4×2 and 4×4 auto trans versions. It comes in Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, and Glacier White exterior colors.

Newly Released Gran Turismo Sport Now Have Limited Edition PlayStation 4

It’s been nearly four years since the last Gran Turismo game, so October’s release of Gran Turismo Sport is going to be a big event. That’s doubly true when you consider that Gran Turismo Sport will be the first game in the series to launch on PlayStation 4. To celebrate such an exciting occasion, Sony has announced a limited edition Gran Turismo Sport PlayStation 4, complete with a special DualShock 4 controller.
Newly Released Gran Turismo Sport Now Have Limited Edition PlayStation 4

Like most limited edition consoles, this one comes with a design inspired by Gran Turismo Sport. The look of this PS4 certainly isn’t as loud as some of the other limited edition consoles we’ve seen, as it merely sports a silver color scheme with the Gran Turismo logo. Nothing too intense, but then again, that might not be a bad thing.

Likewise, the Dualshock 4 that comes packed with the console offers the same silver color with the Gran Turismo logo gracing the touchpad. Again, this controller is fairly unoffensive in its design, but that may not be a bad thing. After all, some of the limited edition controllers Sony has been releasing lately definitely leave something to be desired.

This console will come packed with the Day 1 edition of Gran Turismo Sport, which gets you $250,000 in in-game currency, a set of sticker packs, a chrome racing helmet for your in-game avatar, and finally, 60 different PS4 avatars. Sony points out in its announcement today that it will offer the Dualshock 4 as a standalone product and in a bundle with a standard version of Gran Turismo Sport.

Just as well, there are few other console bundles that come with the standard version of the game. Of these four console bundles, only one of them is a PS4 Pro, and unfortunately it looks like this is the only the way to get a copy of Gran Turismo Sport with your PS4 Pro purchase. While it seems like Sony would want to push a limited edition PS4 Pro with the release of Gran Turismo Sport, the limited edition bundle only nets you a PS4 Slim.

For now, this limited edition console has only been confirmed for the UK, Europe, Australia, and Asia, with no word of a US release just yet. We’ll see if that changes between now and October, but until then, expect this console to launch alongside the game on October 18.

Rumored New Chromebook Pixel and Google Home mini Coming Soon

While a lot of attention has been paid to the second gen Pixel phones, especially now that Android Oreo is out, they might not be the only devices that will be coming later this year. According to Android Police’s sources, Google is working on a new Chromebook Pixel, the first since the second gen laptop in 2015, as well as a smaller version of the Google Home. Both are definitely interesting products that may actually be long overdue. 
iPhone 7, Self-Driving Teslas, Nod to Shop, 4-inch iPhone,, SoundCloud, Autopilot, Textalyzer, HaloLens, Snapchat Spectacles, Affordable Tesla, cars, mp3 converter, samsung galaxy s8, smart device, technology, technews, tech, google search, auto, weather, howto, data trick, data, intel, wearables, android, meizu,  lenovo, yoga, windows, computers, technology, technews, tech, gadgets,

Considering how the Google Home and the Amazon Echo are often pit against each other, it’s surprising that Google hasn’t come out with a counterpart to the smaller Echo Dot. While the price of the Google Home does make it a tad affordable, its size, not to mention its setup, doesn’t exactly make for a conducive multi-room setup. A smaller Google Home could probably work like a mesh, sort of something in between a Google Wi-Fi and a full-sized Google Home.

Perhaps more mysterious is the new Chromebook Pixel. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Google working on a new Chromebook, but none of earlier leaks have come to pass. There was, for example, a certain “Project Bison” that more or less resembled an Acer Chromebook Flip in its design and functionality. And then there’s also “Eve”, which sounded more like a traditional Chromebook.

AP’s source isn’t yet certain which path the new device will take, only that it will be running Chrome OS, instead of the elusive Andromeda or even Android, like the last Pixel tablet. It is certainly possible that this Chromebook Pixel will combine Bison and Even in one, at least in the features the two supposedly had in common, like, for example, support for a Wacom digitizer.

If this latest info drop is true, we might be looking at least four new Google devices later this year. Three if there is ever a chance of the Pixel 2 coming in three sizes instead of just two. A new Chromebook Pixel is certainly a device that has been a long time coming, one that may have even taken longer if not for the fact that Microsoft is aggressively pushing Windows 10 S in the education sector.

Samsung Bixby Users Increases Globally, Yet It Still speaks only 2 languages

Bixby is both the highlight of Samsung year and also its biggest disappointment. Bixby Voice, the only part of Bixby that does matter, came late and was underwhelming. To be fair, it was a completely new venture for Samsung and a company exec admits it didn’t have the necessary big data for it. And to its credit, Samsung has been consistent in pushing and improving Bixby, which it is now pushing to over 200 countries around the world, allowing anyone with a compatible device to speak with Bixby. Presuming they can fluently speak US English or Korean.

Those are naturally the first two languages that Bixby knows and, sadly, the only two languages it still does know. While other voice-controlled assistants have had a head start, they also only roll out said assistants if they can already speak the local language. Samsung, instead, is casting a bigger net in the hopes of getting more features, building up Bixby’s knowledge, and improving the service in turn.

Presuming it can understand you, Bixby will promise you the world. Your smartphone’s world, that is. The idea is that anything you can do with touch you should be able to do with voice. That is, if the app supports Bixby. Anything from cropping images to pausing playback is all fair game for a compatible app, of which there are relatively few.

But Bixby goes beyond more than single action commands. You can string up command into a natural English (or Korean) phrase, like “send that last photo to Mom” and it will know that you want to share the last photo taken by the camera app and attach it an email to send to a contact. You can even set “scenes” where you lump together disconnected but loosely related actions into one, like muting the phone and setting up an alarm when you say “good night”.

While Bixby Voice is now rolling out globally, it is limited to the only 2 devices that support it: the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+. Samsung is, of course, promising that it will expand Bixby to more languages and devices, but, as always, the question is “when?”.


Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Will Be Release with a selfie-centric variants

It may have been eclipsed by the Android Oreo reveal but Xiaomi fans will devour this new smartphone model nonetheless. The Chinese smartphone giant has just launched the latest addition to its mid-range phablet line, the Redmi Note 5A, and it’s no surprise that there’s a focus on selfies in two the three models available. What’s a bit surprising is how Xiaomi seems to be eschewing dual cameras that is in fashion, even among some cheaper smartphones.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Will Be Release with a selfie-centric variants

While they are all called “Redmin Note 5A”, there are actually two models here. Three if you consider that the second has two memory configurations. There is a base Redmi Note 5A model and a higher end Redmi Note 5A “S” variant. The “S” in the latter may stand for “selfie”, considering that’s one of the core differences of that model. Visually speaking, however, the two are nearly identical, except for an extra hole on the Redmi Note 5A S’ face.

The basic Redmi Note 5A is the epitome of a mid-range phone. It has a 5.5-inch HD screen and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425. There’s only 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. The 13 megapixel PDAF camera may be acceptable, except for the small f/2.2 aperture. Then again, this is a budget smatphone after all. The 5 megapixel front camera definitely has nothing on the higher end model.
• Operating System: Android 7.0, MIUI 9
• CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 425
• RAM: 2 GB
• Storage: 16 GB
• Display: 5.5-inch HD
• Main Camera: 13 MP, f/2.2 PDAF
• Secondary Camera: 5 MP, f/2.0
• Battery: 3,080 mAh
The other Redmi Note 5A “S” gets the same 5.5-inch HD screen but is now driven by a more recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 435. There is a choice between 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB of storage or 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of storage. While it has the same 13 megapixel f/2.2 PDAF main camera, they greatly diverge in the front shooter. That one has a 16 megapixel sensor, a slightly larger f/2.0 aperture, and a soft light flash.
• Operating System: Android 7.0, MIUI 9
• CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 435
• RAM: 3 or 4 GB
• Storage: 32 or 64 GB
• Display: 5.5-inch HD
• Main Camera: 13 MP, f/2.2 PDAF
• Secondary Camera: 16 MP, f/2.0, soft flash
• Battery: 3,080 mAh
Of course, you do pay for that those extras. The base Redmi Note 5A goes for only 699 RMB, roughly $105. The Redmi Note 5A “S” with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage retails at 899 RMB or $135. Finally, the highest model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage will sell for 1,199 RMB, around $180. Still dirt cheap smartphones, exactly the way Xiaomi likes to make them.

You Can Now Get iOS 11 developer beta 7, public beta 6 For ipad and iPhone

This week isn’t just for eclipses and oreos. While it still isn’t a final release, iOS users and developers are also getting a bit of a treat. Apple has just rolled out a new beta version of iOS 11 not just for developers but even for users brave enough to tread the waters. And at the rate that Apple is pushing out these betas, users can only expect one thing: that iOS 11 is almost ready for prime time.
You Can Now Get iOS 11 developer beta 7, public beta 6 For ipad and iPhone

Of course, the final release won’t be happening until around September at the earliest, but Apple’s bug squashing frenzy is at an all time high as that date approaches. It has just been a week since the last beta and users might haven’t had enough time to enjoy that version. Then again, given some of the bugs there, they might have not enjoyed it in the first place.

Beta 6 or 7, for public and developers, respectively, fixes some of the outstanding pain points from last week. At the top of that list is the SOS feature, which apparently didn’t cancel the 911 call even when you tell it not to, much to the annoyance of 911 operators. iTunes metadata were once lost and now found again and Siri has learned to sound less artificial. Well, as much as it can.

Developers are once again reminded that the end of support for 32-bit apps is nigh and to make the switch now. That call has been made a few beta releases back but, you know how developer try to hold off until the last minute. If they don’t want to be left out of the iOS 11 party, it’s time to get off their posteriors.

iOS 11 naturally has a lot in store for users on whatever device, but Apple itself has placed a huge emphasis on what the release means for iPad Pro owners. It makes a lot of changes in the user interaction that Apple had to make videos to showcase and explain them. Of course, much of the changes in iOS 11 are under the hood and many of them, like Face ID, have been made with the iPhone 8 in mind.


Age of Empires IV Finally Release

There are very few games that can claim to fame and even active fans over a span of decades. One of those is the Age of Empires franchise. First released in 1997, it was hailed as a mix of Sid Meier’s Civilization’s historic focus and Warcraft’s real-time strategy gameplay. It’s last major installment, however, was back in 2005 and fans have all but given up hope that Microsoft would ever revive this PC title, especially with its focus on consoles. At Gamescom, 

Microsoft proved them wrong and not only announced Age of Empires IV but also Definitive Editions of older titles to help fans bid their time for the game’s arrival.

Development of Age of Empires IV will be interesting to watch. Microsoft didn’t give the task to its own studios. Instead, it has enlisted Relic Entertainment, now owned by Sega to create this long overdue sequel. That said, Relic does have the war wounds to show, having made the Company of Heroes, Dawn of War, and Homeworld games, all of which have been received quite positively.
There is very little to be gleaned from the minute and a half trailer for the game. As with an AoE title, you get to play out the milestones in human history throughout the world. And as with the original AoE titles, it seems that the game is intended for PCs, specifically Windows 10. Whether it will be limited to that version, however, is still unanswered. By the time Age of Empires comes out, it might be the only Windows version anyway.
What will be exclusive to Windows 10 PCs is the Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. It will be launching October 19th to commemorate the 20th birthday of the first game. Like any new edition, it will be introducing new features to bring the game to the current age while still promising fidelity to the original experience. And if that weren’t enough, Microsoft also promised that a Definitive Edition for Age of Empires II and III will also be made.

OMEN X Laptop is the First HP overclockable portable gaming rig

There’s only so much you can change in a laptop, given its more or less fixed design. But while you can’t swap out processors and graphics cards, you can at least push them to their limits. Overclocking is common fare for gamers, but it is only recently that gaming laptops have started to embrace the practice. Jumping on that trend, HP is announcing the OMEN X Laptop, part of its new brand of gaming computers. But more than an already powerful laptop out of the box, this devil dares you to overclock it til it can give no more.

Processing power in cramped spaces don’t always end well but, thanks to advancements in thermal management, both on the processor itself as well as the entire machine, gamers can safely push the boundaries of what their portable computers are able to accomplish. On one side, you have your choice of 7th, not 8th, gen Intel Core i7 processors unlocked for overclocking. On the other side, you have options to also overclock your RAM to match. Don’t bother overclocking the NVIDIA GTX 1080, though, since it is already factory-overclocked from the get go.

That said, no matter how powerful the processors are, they alone don’t make a computer. The HP OMEN X Laptop has other parts that work together to offer an immersive gaming experience. Like the 17-inch 4K screen, which you can swap out for a 140 Hz 1080p screen, both of which support NVIDIA’s G-SYNC anti-tearing tech. Or the individually backlit keyboard, with configurable lighting zones to not only show off some light but also guide you in the darkness of the e-arena. Going beyond sight and touch, the laptop also boasts dual speakers by Bang & Olufsen as well as support for DTS Headphone:X.

And while you can’t replace the CPU and the GPU, you can replace storage and memory. The OMEN X Laptop makes it easy by having a single access panel to take out and put in your memory of choice. And for those you can’t slot in, you can plug in via two Thunderbolt 3 ports, once USB 3.0 (Type A) port, HDMI 2.0a with HDR, or MiniDisplay Port.

With all those power features, don’t be surprised that HP slapped on a $2,299 price tag on this gaming devil. The OMEN X Laptop goes on sale sometime in November.

Why The face recognition in iPhone 8 might be more powerful than expected

Microsoft and its fans may boast that it was using face recognition, via the still young Windows Hello, long before Apple, but the iPhone 8 might have a few things over Microsoft’s and Intel’s relatively older technology. Of course, nothing is official until Apple finally says so next month but, if all these leaks and speculations hit the mark, then the iPhone 8 might have one of the most accurate and fastest consumer face recognition technologies in the market. Ironically, it has Microsoft to thank for that.

Face recognition, at least the way Apple will supposedly implement it, doesn’t rely on simply capturing a flat image of a person’s face and comparing it to a database of mugshots like in some TV show. It instead shines nearly invisible infrared light on a person’s face, which a camera can then pick up. The advantage of this method is that the system will be able to detect objects, like the user’s face, even in darkness.

That’s not just theory either. That’s the very same principle used in Microsoft’s Kinect controller. It isn’t just an accident that Apple acquired PrimeSense, the very startup behind Kinect, in 2013. An independent source also claims that Apple’s sensor can detect a face in one microsecond, or one millionth of a second, which is only perhaps a little slower than Touch ID in its current incarnation.

Unlike Touch ID, however, face recognition has the potential to become and even bigger thing. In addition to convenience and potentially greater security, camera and infrared sensors are apparently cheaper to add to smartphones compared to fingerprint scanners. Cost factors might play an even bigger role in the near future when traditional fingerprint sensors no longer have any physical space on the phone.

Of course, that still depends on how well face recognition will actually perform in the real world. Samsung’s iris recognition sounded great on paper but was easily thwarted by fake photos. Qualcomm, who is pushing its Spectra image signal processor for similar purposes, says it can help rectify that flaw with some depth perception and “live-ness” detection. It has, however, yet to put that sensor in a commercial product, which probably won’t happen before the iPhone 8 launches.

Mercedes-AMG Project One To Be Launch at Frankfurt International Motor Show

Mercedes-Benz has big plans for the 2017 Frankfurt International Motor Show (IAA) that will run from September 14 through September 24. Mercedes plans to have a major exhibit that will highlight its plans for “mobility of tomorrow.” There will be multiple cars at the show and one of them will be the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar. 

The automaker has been stressing since this car was first teased that it will be the first hypercar in the world to use true Formula 1 hybrid drive technology for the street.

For those who aren’t in the market for a hypercar, Mercedes will also be showing off more plebian autos as well including a new smart show car highlighting an “intelligent solution for shared urban mobility.” Mercedes will show off a new fully electric car in the compact car segment with a concept called the GLC F-Cell EQ Power that uses a fuel cell hybrid drive. That car will combine long range and short hydrogen fueling times to allow emissions free driving. As with all fuel cell vehicles one big limiting factor in the real world is hydrogen fuel availability.

Mercedes will have a couple of world premieres at the show including the updated S-Class coupe and the S-Class Cabriolet in standard trims and AMG versions. Mercedes-Benz will also show off the anticipated X-Class truck, which has already been fully unveiled, but has never graced the stage at the IAA.

Mercedes wrote, “All in all, Mercedes-Benz Cars is exhibiting around 100 vehicles in Frankfurt, among them several world premières of innovative concept cars. The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is a near-series study of a hypercar. The hypercar’s series version will be the first ever automobile to feature genuine Formula 1 hybrid technology. With the new, electrically powered smart showcar, the brand is exhibiting a study by the recently founded product and technology brand EQ as a world première. This fully autonomously driving study is the first model to comprehensively embody all four pillars of the corporate strategy CASE: “Connected”, “Autonomous”, “Shared” and “Electric”. It stands for maximum mobility efficiency in and for the urban environment thanks to systematic further development of the car sharing concept, and makes the vision of individualised, highly flexible urban public transport a reality.”

We have talked about the cool looking Mercedes X-Class truck before. Sadly, Mercedes doesn’t think the US is ready for the luxury truck and won’t be offering it here. Pricing in Germany starts at about $42,000, which certainly is well in the range of pricing for US truck buyers. The X-Class will launch in Europe this November.

Bitcoin Cash Now Sells Above $1,000 (BREAKING RECORD)

The new offshoot of Bitcoin has dropped in value after reaching a record high which saw the cryptocurrency peak at over $1,000.

Last month, a group of Bitcoin miners implemented a hard fork of the blockchain and as a result Bitcoin Cash was created. On Friday of last week, the offshoot was able to surge by 40 percent in a single day and it reached $600.

However, Bitcoin Cash has also been rather volatile during its short existence and it went as low as $293 on Thursday.

The new cryptocurrency quickly become the third largest digital currency in the days following its launch, before being surpassed by Ripple shortly after. It currently sits in third place. with Ethereum in second and Bitcoin still leading the charge.

Last week, Bitcoin was able to reach a record high of $4,500 though as of this week it is trading around $4,099.

Cryptocurrencies are slowly winning the favor of mainstream investors who now see them as viable option for future investment.

While this vote of confidence can been as beneficial for digital currencies as a whole it has led to their prices skyrocketing in recent weeks.

If Your Partner Is Cheating On You This App Can Tell

Nobody takes the help of some “hackers” to know if their partner is unfaithful to them, as it happened with Ashley Madison. This time it’s about the Swipe Buster website that tells you if your boyfriend or girlfriend is in Tinder, one of the leading applications for flirting.
If Your Partner Is Cheating On You This App Can Tell

The controversial web is the most feared search engine of infidels because it is able to locate if a particular person is a user of the application. As Independent has published, to do so simply you have to enter your data: number, age, gender, and location.

Once the tracing is done, the interested party receives an email. If your partner (or father, mother, friend) has never used Tinder, nothing should be feared. Otherwise, the couple is in danger.

SwipeBuster, after tracking the database and API of the popular application to meet people (are public and therefore easy to access), it SMSes the search results matching the profile sought.

It not only shows the data requested but also shows very specific options depending on how the profile is configured in Tinder: if you are interested in looking for a man or a woman, the photographs you have shared and even the last connection. And all this for the modest price of about $6.99 (5 British pounds).

The publication has spoken with the creator of this website, which prefers to remain anonymous. Ensures that they do not violate users’ privacy because they simply collect information from Tinder’s own API, which is available to anyone to make improvements to the app. His aim, he says in Vanity Fair, is to “educate people about a large amount of personal data hanging on the network and how anyone can access them easily.”

“A lot of people will be surprised and then they will be more careful and Tinder will take steps to protect their API,” he said. Something that, if it happens, in your opinion will be positive because the company will be concerned to protect the users.

A Tinder spokeswoman told “Who wants to know who is in Tinder simply download the application for free and save the $ 7,” without specifying whether to take action on its API.

SwipeBuster is an anonymous group that has emerged over the past few years to shed light on the big holes of privacy, as it happened with Ashley Madison. Although the creator of this website differentiates: “With Swipe Buster nothing has been violated. We have not obtained the data illegally. It completely depends on the Tinder public API that, so if Tinder decides to close it, our web will come to an end.

Elon Musk Join Hands With Other Experts To Warn The UN Of Killer Robots

Artificial intelligence is a system quite used today, its use beyond the basics and primordial and this shows us tech companies like the Facebook and Google to put a quick example.
 Elon Musk Join Hands With Other Experts To Warn The UN Of Killer Robots

Of course, for most in the world, it is an advantage to make use of it, but there are those who question the use of AI. Something that could generate a conflict and “perhaps” its temporary disappearance.

Several weeks ago we discussed the fight that was generated between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg because of the implications of artificial intelligence. From this point is where we must start and analyze, therefore, the magnate Musk is the man who interested in creating a regulation for this system.

Also, we are seeing how artificial intelligence over time changes its mind quickly as learned from users. For example, the artificial intelligent the tech giant Microsoft prefers to Linux; Facebook’s AI generated its own language. Undoubtedly, these recent results make us doubt the same and this is shared by Elon Musk and other specialists in the world.

Elon Musk and 115 other experts alert the United Nations to the danger of killer robots
A couple of hours ago, magnate Elon Musk along with the 115 other specialists in artificial intelligence have signed an open letter to the United Nations, explaining and warning of the danger of accepting killer robots. The general-purpose is to prohibit its use worldwide.

The letter has been published in the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI 2017) and, explain the different reasons to worry about the use of this type of system, but more because of its speed in the implementation of the market, since it is getting very far, and the numbers are quite encouraging.

The letter contains different specialist in the area, in total there are 26 countries that agree with the open letter to the United Nations. Undoubtedly, we have seen the concern of Elon Musk and everything seems to indicate that soon it could make progress in the problem generated by artificial intelligence. At the moment, no regulations have been established, but in the coming weeks, we could see progress in this regard.

So, what do you think about the Elon Musk’s thought and the killer robots? Simply share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.
