Snap launches platform that automatically creates ads

Snapchat owner Snap today announced a dynamic advertising platform that automatically creates ads and directs them to the real-time audience.



At a time when two technology giants, Google and Facebook , face heavy regulatory pressure on their market control , Snap has dramatically increased user base revenue, and is now betting that convenience will attract more advertisers.

Dynamic ad platforms select items from advertisers' product catalogs and automatically target them to people with compatible interests, without having to manually advertise each product individually.

This way, Snap could, for example, automatically show a guitar to users interested in music . The company said global advertisers can use the dynamic ad platform immediately, but their campaigns will initially only reach US Snapchat users , with a later scheduled global launch.

Snap continues to be a small player in the global digital advertising market with 0.5% revenue share, compared to Facebook's 21% and Google's 32%, according to research firm eMarketer.

Indian government may censor Netflix and Amazon Prime series

The India may establish soon a mechanism of censorship in platforms streaming as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video . According to Reuters , a government source confirmed the ruling and explained that the move was prompted by a series of allegations of inappropriate content or insulting religious beliefs on video platforms.



Although audiovisual production certification bodies already moderate public content in India, the laws of the country do not allow censorship of content on online streaming platforms. Concerns over possible censorship led Netflix and Indian rival Hotstar to sign a self-regulatory agreement in January this year. Amazon, meanwhile, has not signed and found current laws "appropriate."

Netflix's first original Indian series, Sacred Games , was sued in 2018. The program was accused of containing "offensive scenes" and making derogatory comments about a former Indian prime minister, but the case was dismissed. More recently, a politician in the country reported that some Netflix content "defames Hindus".

All of this raised government concerns and led to negotiations to create an acceptable regulatory framework for these content providers. Possibilities are explored: a self-regulatory code without government interference, a government-monitored agreement, or even a requirement that platforms obtain prior approval of the material.

Streaming grows in India

"With regulation, all (global) content will need to be sanitized for India - a huge, expensive and time consuming exercise," Prasanto Roy, technology policy analyst in New Delhi, told Reuters. The streaming giants are producing plenty of original local content to conquer viewers in India, which is increasingly gaining mobile data users. Censorship would be a major obstacle in this process.

Netflix, which declared last year that India could be responsible for its next 100 million subscribers, recently launched a monthly mobile-only plan in the country for 199 rupees ($ 2.80). The company said on Thursday it was "very happy" with the performance of its mobile plan and could expand it to other markets .

We already know the month chosen for the release of PS5!

We already know the exact month of the PS5 release! - I've been talking about PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett for months… But apparently, it's a saga that has already announced the end! After all, after Sony itself made public that its console would hit the market by the end of 2020, several leaks now point to December for the official release.


The Sony PlayStation 5 hits shelves in December 2020!

So in what seems like a pretty weird decision, because it's too much over Christmas. Sony is even planning to launch its next-generation console in December next year! Which puts us about 14 months from the desired date.

However, it is undeniable that the month of October would be much better for Sony and consumers. It is also seen as one of the highest-selling electronic times, with families preparing for Christmas shopping.

Probably, the AMD + TSMC partnership can't produce enough chips for Sony and Microsoft in time for a release a little earlier than this date.

After all, AMD should have the new Ryzen 4000 and second-generation Radeon Navi graphics cards on the market by now. This should not facilitate the production of TSMC lines, which have yet to respond to requests from Apple, Qualcomm, and Huawei.

Still, it's very likely that players will save all the change they can get their hands on the long-awaited console. Especially after the latest reports, which seem to suggest super-powerful hardware that could really take the video game market to a whole new level.

Huawei has been living in a world of trouble after Donald Trump added the manufacturer's name to the famed 'Entity List'. Especially when China and the United States were unable to reach agreement in time for the release of the Mate 30 Pro, which eventually tarnished the launch of what could very well be the Android smartphone of the year.

PC version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare will need 175GB!

The 'reboot' of Call of Duty's Modern Warfare saga is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated games of the year. Especially if you are a PC fan as a gaming platform, where this title should impress graphically.

Incidentally, this is not the first time a CoD has exceeded the 3-digit mark, but even then, the feat was achieved by downloading all DLCs.

That said, we still don't know what space this game will take up on consoles… But given that the PS4 version has Spec Ops Survival Mode as its exclusive mode, it's likely to take up more space than the Xbox version and who knows. , the PC version.

Editor's Note: However, Activision has already updated the requirements to explain that the 175GB is only a recommendation and not an obligation. In order to leave room for content that will come out after release. That is, the initial download will not reach this massive size. But the company didn't offer any numbers to make players more relaxed.

See the minimum and recommended PC version requirements for Call of Duty Modern Warfare:

Harley-Davidson suspends production of its first electric motorcycle, LiveWire


Harley-Davidson (Harley-Davidson) suspended its first electric motorcycle LiveWire production and delivery, because this Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer found a problem outside of a specification in quality inspection.

Harley-Davidson suspends production of its first electric motorcycle, LiveWire


The company told TechCrunch that they would not recall LiveWire motorcycles that were already on the road. Reuters first reported that Harley Davidson stopped producing and delivering LiveWire news.

"Recently, we found a problem outside the specification in the final quality check; we stopped the production and delivery of the motorcycle; and started additional testing and analysis, and it is going well." Harley Davidson said in a statement. .

"We maintain close contact with LiveWire dealers and customers and ensure they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles. As always, we put quality at the top of the list."

Harley-Davidson did not disclose when they will resume production and sales, nor did they provide more information about issues outside of that specification.

The shutdown event brought threats to Harley-Davidson's electrified road. With a price of $29,799 and a horsepower of 105 horsepower, LiveWire plays a leading role in Harley-Davidson's future electric product line, which will cover motorcycles, bicycles and scooters.

LiveWire was officially put into production in 2019, and in the past many years, Harley-Davidson has been suggesting that electric motorcycles will be introduced, and even a concept version of electric motorcycles will be displayed. The company began delivering LiveWire to dealers on September 27.

LiveWire and subsequent electric products are designed to complement Harley-Davidson's high-end internal combustion engine motorcycles instead of replacing them.

Since the economic downturn, Harley-Davidson’s sales of new cars in the US market, especially for customers under the age of 40, have been in a downturn. In the past decade, the company's revenue has declined. Harley-Davidson turned to electric motorcycles, with the goal of developing new products that will attract millennials and on-demand markets while retaining the loyal fans of internal combustion engines.

The move made the iconic US company compete with a range of electric motorcycle startups (such as Zero) and became the leader in electric motorcycles among established motorcycle manufacturers.

Now, Harley-Davidson’s electrification strategy may be hindered by the suspension.

Huawei Mate X to be released later this month in China

The year 2019 was quite exciting during the initial months, since the long - awaited foldable smartphones from Samsung and Huawei have been revealed - Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X . However, both smartphones have had to undergo many design changes to increase durability, so the launch of both smartphones has been delayed a few times. The Galaxy Fold has been on sale since the beginning of this month, and now it's Mate X's turn .




The Huawei had confirmed last month that the foldable smartphone Huawei Mate X would be available since October, and now new information states that the smartphone will go on sale in its home country, China, by the end of this month.



The Huawei Mate X comes with a flexible display that was first shown at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 technology event in February.At that time, the device was powered by the Kirin 980 chipset . Folding phone sales were expected to begin in August, but were delayed by the company without revealing the reasons behind it.

It is speculated that the company may launch two versions of Kill X . One may include the Kirin 980 and the other may come with the latest Kirin 990 chipset that supports 5G connectivity natively. It is speculated that the variant SoC Kirin 990 to mate X display the same triple chambers that are available on Huawei P30 Pro .

The smartphone comes with what the company calls "Falcon Wing Design". Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, it folds completely, with no visible slack. The company says the hinge system used in the phone is patented and has more than 100 components.

The Huawei Mate X has a large 8 inch screen with a screen resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and an 8: 7.1 aspect ratio when deployed with very thin frames. When folded, it turns into a two-screen phone - one side is a 6.6 inch (2480 x 1148 pixels) 19.5: 9 screen, the other is a 6.38 inch 25: 9 ( 2480 x 892 pixels).

It comes with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. It has dual SIM support (nano only), but only SIM 1 supports 5G. You can also exchange the second SIM card for Huawei NM card up to 256 GB. The device also comes with the 7nm Balong 5000 Modem which brings 5G support to the device.

The phone runs the custom EMUI 9.1.1 interface , based on the factory default Android 9 Pie operating system . As for connectivity options, the device supports NFC, dual-frequency GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, 802.11 b / g / n / ac Wi-Fi, and Type C USB port.

The device has two built-in batteries, which offer a total capacity of 4,500mAh. The Huawei also debuted its new fast charging technology supercharge that supports up to 55W. The company says the new SuperCharge allows users to charge their device from zero to 85% in just 30 minutes.

Your phone is dirty, know how to clean

You can't see with the naked eye, but your smartphone is probably contaminated with bacteria - maybe even more than one toilet. And even if you don't believe it, you can see the fingerprints, greasiness and dust on the display surface. It's time to clean up!



First and foremost, it is important to disconnect your device from all cables, both charger and headset. Then take off your cover, if you use one, and choose the best cleaning option below.

How to clean your smartphone:

Cloth and water


If you don't have many sophisticated instruments at home and are afraid of putting chemicals on your phone screen , your smartphone's traditional cleaning process may only involve a cloth and water.

The Apple recommends that cloths are used as those of clear lens glasses , however, anyone with a similar material should be used. Now soak a piece of cloth in water and wipe the front and back of the machine using firm, circular motions to remove accumulated dirt.

It's a good idea to keep one end of your cloth dry or have a dry cloth handy to remove excess moisture at the end - especially in areas like buttons .

Dip your smartphone in the water

If your phone is IP68 certified - check your device's specification list - feel free to dip it in a bowl of clean water for a minute or two. Then wrap it in a towel to dry.


Baby or face wipes

For more persistent brands, use baby or baby wipes and hand soap. Check first if cloths are recommended for electronic devices.

Alcohol and water

Some experts also recommend mixing a solution of alcohol (about 60-70 percent isopropyl alcohol) and water. Spray it on your cleaning cloth instead of directly on the phone to get rid of the rest of the bacteria .

Use the substances in small quantities to avoid risks.

Ultraviolet Light Bath

For an even more comprehensive solution, you can treat your phone with an ultraviolet light bath - a cleaning technique that science shows can help eliminate certain types of bacteria from your device. You can buy a PhoneSoap UV cell phone disinfectant for $ 80 from Amazon and it will charge the phone while cleaning.

Cotton Swabs and Toothpicks


Finally, such cleaning can be added to any of the previous steps. Swabs and toothpicks should help reach the bottom of the holes in the phone, such as charger or earphone .

These are some general tips, but we recommend that you search online for all instructions specific to your phone. Your device manufacturer may have some better tips that don't apply widely, or some warnings about what not to do when cleaning your phone.

Find out how to know if your data is among the 30 million users at risk after the Facebook hack

This has already become a bad joke. After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, problems with the founders of WhatsApp and Instagram, serious privacy issues where even the data exchange between smartphone makers and Chinese companies has been confirmed. We expected it to stay there. But not.


Facebook confirmed a few weeks ago that Facebook was hacked due to a security breach on the platform.

This new security flaw, which apparently has nothing to do with everything that happened to Facebook last year, was released on September 28th, and at first it was said that 50 million users were affected. Today, Facebook is updating that number to 30 million, providing details of the stolen data, and a tool to see if our account was at risk.

How can we tell if our account was at risk?


According to Facebook, a statement on its website confirms that during September, a group of hackers exploited a vulnerability within the "see how" function that allowed them to gain unauthorized access to private data. of millions of accounts worldwide.

According to the Facebook investigation, hackers reportedly stole 30 million tokens to access Facebook user profiles. Of those 30 million, attackers would have accessed basic data like name, email and phone number of 14 million.

On 15 million accounts, there would be access, in addition to basic data, to additional sensitive information such as gender, religion, locations, relationship status, education, city and date of birth, current city, device information linked to the account. The most recent pages and their searches; while the remaining million accounts remained "secure" because they were unable to access their users' private data.


Even though Facebook is willing to inform the 30 million affected users, we can already know for ourselves if we have been affected by this new security breach. Facebook provides a way to verify that our information is at risk and which data has been stolen. We just need to access the Facebook Help Center, with our account activated, and the details will be shown at the bottom. 

In addition, Facebook ensures that in this attack there was no data at risk from third party account-linked applications, we are talking about other Facebook services such as Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp. They also say they have found no indication that the information has been published anywhere on the web.

The FBI asks Facebook not to reveal who might be behind the hack

According to Facebook's own data, the attack was carried out on September 14, when an increase in website activity was detected, but 11 days later, this unusual activity was identified as a malicious attack. , which was resolved two days after that.

As if that weren't enough, Facebook also reported that the FBI is opening a formal investigation to find out what happened and who is behind this attack. While there is no further detail for being a federal investigation, Facebook mentioned that the agency asked them not to give more details about who might be behind this attack.

In the coming weeks, the FBI is expected to have the first results of the investigation, which will be crucial in determining whether it was a coordinated attack or simply another Facebook vulnerability.

Chrome may be devouring your Android storage

We cannot doubt the importance and popularity of Google Chrome in 2019 where, although we have several alternatives, Chrome turns out to be the most used in many parts of the world, either because it is installed on most Android phones or because many users have too lazy to change application. However, this isn't the first time we've heard "weird" things about Chrome, it's already proven to be one of the most RAM-consuming applications on computers and smartphones, and now we also know that Google's browser may be consuming significantly storage of the phone.

Chrome may be devouring your Android storage


Chrome can take up to several GB of storage on your phone.


It's no joke (before it was), but sometimes it's weird to think that a company like Google has these issues in applications as popular and used as Google Chrome. The news was first reported by Android Police , one of the most relevant sites in relation to everything happening on Android, where it was mentioned that Chrome (at least for Android) takes up a significant amount of phone memory to store information from websites that We visited.

We don't know why Google Chrome needs to store so much information about sites, because in some cases a single site can take up GB of information, but in most cases it's just a few MB for each site we visit in Google Chrome.Chrome is one of the apps I use most in my daily life. It's scary to see people who have up to 4 GB of space occupied by Chrome. This may not be a problem on phones with 128GB storage memories, but Google should at least explain why Chrome keeps irrational amounts of information from each site.


Chrome may be devouring your Android storage

How to remove this space occupied by Chrome?

Fortunately, Chrome gives us the option to remove this data from sites on our phone, so we need to follow these steps:
Open Chrome and go to "settings" with the three vertical dots in the upper right corner.
Next we go to "Definitions"
Now let's go to the "Site Definitions" option.
Once inside, we look for the "Storage" option.
Here we will look at the amount of MB or GB that Chrome has stored on our device and below we can see the option to free that space.

First robot with 'legs' goes to the moon in 202



The UK plans to send its first rover to the moon in 2021. The robot developed by startup SpaceBit was presented to the public on Thursday at the New Scientist Live science and technology festival . It has a peculiarity that sets it apart from other lunar vehicles: it has four robotic legs instead of wheels and is the smallest in history.

The rover will hitchhike on the space mission of the US robotics company Astrobotic, scheduled for 2021. The robot is 1 kilo, cubic in shape and has four legs. Design innovation can enable exploration of areas that were previously inaccessible. It will be used to collect videos and images of unexplored places, as well as other data during the 10 days of mission.

Both SpaceBit and Astrobotic expect the model to show the benefits of legged rovers. "The legs could be better for steep, rocky terrain and basically any place where the wheels start to struggle," said John Thornton, CEO of Astrobotic.

Samsung Electronics: The last mobile phone factory in China has been shut down at the end of September



According to Reuters reported on October 2, South Korea's Samsung Electronics said on Wednesday that it had suspended production of the Chinese mobile phone factory by the end of September. The company said that suspending production at the only mobile phone factory in China was a "difficult decision" to improve efficiency. It is understood that Samsung Electronics said that the last mobile phone factory in China is located in Huizhou, Guangdong. In June this year, some media reported that Samsung has started the layoffs of Huizhou Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., and said that Samsung plans to close the Huizhou factory in September 2019.




  It is reported that Huizhou Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. was established on December 2, 1992 with a total investment of 190.7 million US dollars. Its factory area is 120,000 square meters and the construction area is 35,000 square meters. In June, the plant's smartphone production capacity was approximately 400,000 units per month.

  Samsung once owned three mobile phone manufacturing plants in China, and two other mobile phone factories in Shenzhen and Tianjin have been closed in 2018.

  Shenzhen Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. was cancelled in April 2018. Except for the six Korean high-level executives, all employees were dismissed at the end of April, and the number of severances was about 320. Tianjin Samsung Motor Co., Ltd. officially ceased production on December 31, 2018, and more than 2,600 employees were transferred or resigned.

  According to Reuters reported at the end of last year, the influence of Samsung smartphones in the Chinese market is declining, leaving only 1% of market share.

  It is understood that Samsung's current focus is on the Southeast Asian market. Since 2008, the total investment in Vietnam has increased from 630 million US dollars to 17.3 billion US dollars in 10 years. There are 8 factories in Vietnam, and the total export value of Samsung Vietnam Company in the past two years. It accounts for nearly 25% of Vietnam's total exports.

  In addition, in India, the Noida plant with an annual output of 120 million mobile phones has become Samsung's largest factory in the world. Some analysts pointed out that in the context of rising labor costs and falling market share, Samsung's need to continue to retain Chinese factories is not great.

Xiaomi official: Did not say "no MIX 4 this year"

Xiaomi, #Xiaomi, Xiaomi MIX 4, Smartphone, News,

On September 24, Xiaomi officially released the Xiaomi MIX Alpha 5G concept mobile phone at Xiaomi's new headquarters. This mobile phone uses a 180.6% screen-to-screen surround screen. It also supports the full Netcom 5G dual card and 100 million pixel three cameras. In addition, it also released new products such as Xiaomi 9 Pro 5G, MIUI 11 system, and Xiaomi full-screen TV Pro.

  However, after the press conference, everyone is still concerned about whether there is a Xiaomi MIX 4 mobile phone. Some media said that Xiaomi personnel have indicated that there is no MIX 4 this year. What is going on? There is actually no misunderstanding based on context.

  Xiaomi Company China Brand Promotion Manager @Edward Bishop Weibo explained that Weibo was deciphering whether there were other new machines such as MIX 4 on September 24, instead of saying this year or other time. Bishop @Edward clarified that this Weibo did not reveal that there was no MIX 4 and that there was no MIX 4.

Apple, Google continue inclusive push with new emoji

Apple and Google are rolling out dozens of new emoji that include cute critters, of course, but also expand the number of images of human diversity.




Apple Inc. is releasing new variants of its holding hands emoji that allow people to pick any combination of skin tone and gender, 75 possible combinations in all. There are also wheelchairs, prosthetic arms and legs, as well as a new guide dog and an ear with a hearing aid.

And then there's the sloth, the flamingo, the skunk, the orangutan, as well as a new yawning emoji.

Google, meanwhile, will offer 71 versions of couples with different skin tones once the additions are completed. Google is also adding an emoji for the Diya lamp so that Diwali can be celebrated alongside Christmas and Thanksgiving.

New emoji routinely pop up every year. Earlier this year the Unicode Consortium approved 71 new variations of emoji for couples of color. Apple and Google unveiled their designs Wednesday to coincide with World Emoji Day.

Anyone can propose an emoji. But for it to make it to phones and computers, it has to be approved by Unicode. The nonprofit group, mostly made up of people from large tech companies like Apple, Google and Facebook, translates emoji into one standard, so that a person in France, for example, can send an emoji or a text message to a person in the U.S. and it will look the same, no matter what brand of phone or operating system they use.

It's this group that ultimately weighs in on whether we get a sad pile of poop to complement the smiling one, or whether sliced bagel deserves an emoji alongside bread and croissant.

Apple's new emoji will be available in a few months with a free software update for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. Google said its emoji will be released with Android Q later this year.

Intel: 9th Generation Processors Bring Amazing Performance for Desktops and Notebooks



Intel's 9th generation processor is already a reality and promises high performance for both desktop, desktop and notebook PCs with gamers and image editors.

9th Generation Intel Processors


In a statement sent to the press, the company claims that the new line of processors has technologies that accelerate the exchange of information over the internet as well as reading and writing data to solid-state memory (SSD stands for Solid State Drive with translation free for “Solid Storage Disk”).



Six models of 9th generation notebook processors called the H - line, are detailed, ranging from the widely known i5 to i9. They all have, in the model code, the number “9” at the beginning and the letter “H” at the end, the i9-9980HK being the most powerful model - something for consumers to keep an eye on when choosing the latest technology. to buy.

Intel 9th ​​Generation Notebook Specifications



The new processors are designed to offer portability to those who want gaming machines as well as those who use the notebook for video editing and streaming content, all with high performance, according to Fredrik Hamberger, Managing Director of Premium Segment and Gaming Intel laptop.

“The 9th generation platform is designed to appeal to high-performance gamers, creators and users by offering exactly what they want. We bring the same performance from desktops up to 5 GHz and 8 cores across a range of thinner systems, not to mention a new level of connectivity provided by Wi-Fi 6 (Gig +). That way users can play and create wherever they want. ”Fredrik Hamberger, Managing Director of Intel's Premium Segment and Laptop Gaming



Wi-Fi 6 technology , cited by Fredrik , enables high-speed wireless connectivity, which is great for online gaming and simultaneous internet streaming. The same goes for Thunderbolt 3 technology , which gives an upgrade to the speed of the wired connection.

Another technology present in processors is Intel Optane , which, when used in conjunction with compatible memories (SSD), allows for an even greater increase in application openness.
The new parts feature up to eight cores and up to 16 MB cache, and are comparable to desktops with up to 5.0 GHz processors. This performance enables up to 33% higher performance compared to desktops from three years ago - which is considerable, when we consider that these are notebooks.
Desktop line

There are also 9th generation processors designed for desktop computers in a total of 27 products. The new chips have four to eight cores, depending on the model, which can be i3 , i5 , i7 or i9 .



Also of note is the support for DDR4 RAM. Processors support up to 64 GB of memory, which can run at a transfer speed of up to 2666 MT / s.

The wide range of products allows Intel to locate itself in the market to appeal to customers who need computers from daily productivity to those who prefer high performance tough machines.

The same performance-enhancing technologies found in notebook models - Wi-Fi 6 , Thunderbolt 3, and Intel Optane - are featured in desktop versions. In addition, processors enable significant frame rate per second gains in video games and faster video editing in 4K.

Imaging Performance

In addition to attention to performance, Intel was also concerned with making its 9th generation processors capable of displaying high quality images.

The "unlocked" processor line model can reach speeds above 5.0GHz

In addition, the line has the ability to process modern codecs with total fluidity, such as the HEVC 10-bit encode / decode and VP9 10-bit decode , used for streaming video over the internet.
For demanding people

By way of comparison, Intel warrants that the new i9-9980HK model has a 56% frame rate gain per second compared to the i7-6700HQ model released three years ago in tests conducted with the Total War: Warhammer II game. . Such performance is sufficient for good performance in AAA games - as blockbusters are called , ie the biggest releases in the gaming industry.

Intel's 9th-generation processors have already been released - on April 23rd - and some companies, such as Asus , Dell and Lenovo, have already confirmed that they will use them in notebooks made by them, and should appear on the market soon.



As for desktop models, it is already possible to buy them separately, with prices that go from R $ 2,600 , for the model i9-9900k . Other models can be found for more affordable prices, such as the i5-9600K , which costs around $ 1,330 .
