  3. Microsoft's Edge Dev browser is now available for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 by Rich Woods A week ago, Microsoft finally launched its Chromium-based Edge browser for older versions of Windows, including Windows 7, 8, and 8.1. It was only available from the Canary branch though, which is updated daily. Today, Edge Dev is now available for the older operating systems. Edge Dev is updated weekly, and that means that it's less likely to break. There's also an Edge Beta branch that's coming soon; that will be updated every six weeks like the stable channel will be. Of course, the stable channel is still a long way off. You'll get the same builds as users do on Windows 10 and macOS, and they come out on Tuesdays. One feature that you'll find is missing is dark mode, as that automatically matches your system settings. Obviously, there's no native dark mode on Windows 7 or 8.1. Luckily, the Edge team mentioned on the Windows Insider podcast today that it may be adding manual controls. If you want to check out Edge Dev for older versions of Windows, you can find it here. Just pick the platform you're looking for at the bottom.
  4. again? lol. It makes a big difference - if digital zoom is to be included in the article title, pop '50x zoom' into P30 article titles that's the name of the phone, it can't be helped. it's called the 'Reno 10x Zoom'
  5. Honestly, it's just the way the world is moving. Hell, even outside of software development, any network/system admin today not actively finding ways to utilize programming to automate their tasks and roll-outs is doing themselves a major disservice.
  6. You'd be surprised how many adults play Minecraft.... And that's a sad truth, all by itself. There's no need to game shame!
  7. totally with you, this is just pushing more of the same. This is one more step to making youtube brandsafe.
  8. Problem is, how do you not use these services today when they're integrated into everything? I say this because Google/YouTube is under fire right now about censoring videos lately, due to the whole revelation of groups like Pinterest deliberately blocking out right/republican/libertarian views. Now leaks are coming out about Google employees meddling in elections by what data users get to see. It's almost comical because despite how much hostility the right has for Elizabeth Warren, they're almost coming to terms in agreement with her about wanting to break up Google now... It's like things keep getting crazier, and 2020 is over here like, "Hold my beer..." Funny how the ultra left tech media aren't reporting on Google taking down the video of it being caught out trying to manipulate the 2020 elections under "privacy" grounds. Guess the People of America don't need to know that Google is planning to throw the election. Anything in the "tech" media about this? Nah, course not. Doesn't help that they're silencing channels talking about it for that matter. The whole thing stinks. Just like none of the tech sites have reported on Peter Bright from Ars Technica being arrested for peadophilia... They're all too busy complaining about what Trump said ages ago... Hypocrites the lot of them.

    GNU / Linux Desktops: 2Q 2019

    Same Ubuntu 19.04, another look.
  10. Still no full proof solution to eliminate bias or guarantee against manipulation. Never has been either to start with though.
  11. I'm a democrat supporter but surely all candidates should be on the app?
  12. Today
  13. who remembers when the democrats said the republicans having 15ish (cant remember how many there was at the time exactly) candidates was a sign of a party in crisis in 2015?... anyone?

  15. Chrome OS 75 introduces USB support for Android devices in Linux by João Carrasqueira Google has once again released a major update for Chrome OS, bringing the version number up to 75. Compared to some of the previous releases, the changelog for this one isn't quite as extensive, but there are still some nice enhancements to speak of. One of the big highlights of this release is that Linux on Chrome OS can now recognize Android devices connected over USB. This is particularly useful, for example, if you want to use Linux for debugging. Additionally, as noted by 9to5Google, support for VPN connections is also included. Here's the full list of new features provided by Google: Feature to let parents grant more time to their kids on Chrome OS devices Enabling kid friendly Assistant for child accounts Linux (Beta) can now access Android devices over USB Files app support for 3rd party file provider apps implementing Android DocumentsProvider APIs Add support for PIN code with native printers for managed devices As usual, Google has snuck in some improvements not mentioned in the official changelog. The OS now displays service workers in the task manager, and there's a new page to manage your security keys in the settings. Speaking of security, Chrome OS 75 also includes some mitigations for Microarchitectural Data Sampling. The latest version of Chrome OS is rolling out to most Chrome OS devices starting today, and the update should make its way to everyone in the coming days.

    Rogue ads when using my Android phone...

    Thanks! I will report back.
  17. When you're running so many candidates you need an app.
  18. They can't, companies are people too we've been told
  19. I wish companies would stay out of politics.
  20. Not necessarily. There are plenty of higher-paying white-collar jobs that will be far easier to automate than many lower-paid manual jobs. I want to see robots or even AI to replace all those politicians in DC.
  21. Apple News launches Democratic candidate guide ahead of debates by Paul Hill Apple has launched a new section for Apple News which acts as a guide to the Democratic candidates before the first TV debates. The initiative is part of a wider trend where technology companies play their part to make sure that people are getting accurate information about politics and politicians, in a time of supposed misinformation campaigns. The candidate guide compiles information about each of the candidates from a wide range of news sources such as ABC News, Axios, CNN, Fox News, NBC News, Politico, The Hill, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, TIME, USA Today, Vox, and more. Rather than using algorithms to pull in data, Apple is using a team of Apple News editors in order to curate the news. Aside from the latest news, users can read a biography about each candidate and learn about their positions on different issues. Discussing the new feature, Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News, said: “The 2020 Democratic field is complex, and we want to offer Apple News readers a trusted place to learn more about candidates they’re familiar with and those they may be hearing about for the first time. The candidate guide in Apple News is a robust and reliable resource, connecting readers to valuable at-a-glance information and to great journalism from our partners.” If you’re away from the TV during the debate, you can get up to date snippets through Apple News courtesy of NBC News. There will also be fact-checking coverage to judge any doubtful claims the politicians try to make. If you’ve got a preferred runner in the race, you can favorite the candidate so you’ll be continually updated about their campaign.

    GPD announces the P2 Max, a 8.9-inch ultrabook

    I have a hard time seeing a use-case for this. I had a few of these netbook sized laptops back in the day - A Dell Mini and a few Asus 9-10" netbooks. The truth is that it's a complete PITA to type on a keyboard that small. It might be fine for taking occasional notes, but any type of productivity would be very limited. Not to mention, that high of a res screen is a bit wasted on a device that small and if anything else would make things a lot harder to read due to small fonts and everything. Also, since it's not a 2-in-1, the touch feature isn't all that useful. If this were an 11.6" size, I think it would be a great device especially with those specs. Big enough to be productive on the go, small enough to slip into any bag.
  23. Motorola cancels Android Pie update for Moto Z2 Force units that aren't on Verizon by Rich Woods If you've got a Moto Z2 Force in the United States and were patiently waiting for your Android 9.0 Pie update, don't hold your breath. Motorola posted in Lenovo support forums this week that unless you have the Verizon unit, you won't get the update in the U.S. The reason that the Verizon will still get it is because it's necessary to enable support for the 5G Moto Mod. While the Moto Z3 was branded as the first 5G-upgradeable phone, Motorola had promised that it would bring the functionality to older devices like the Z2 Force. Presumably, it's more work than its worth to create a separate Android Pie update that doesn't support the 5G Moto Mod. After all, the 5G Moto Mod only works with Verizon variants of the Moto Z series of handsets. Even unlocked models won't work. The real disservice to consumers here though is that Motorola really hasn't offered much of a reason to upgrade from the Moto Z2 Force. The Moto Z3 has the same internal specs but it had a taller display, moving the fingerprint sensor to the side. This year's Moto Z4 swaps out the Snapdragon 835 for a Snapdragon 675, turning what was once decidedly a flagship smartphone lineup into a mid-range device. It would seem that the driving factor to upgrade at this point would be for software updates.
