Here's why your next phone will have superfast Wi-Fi | TechRadar

Qualcomm has unveiled its first ever Wi-Fi 6E chips, in a move that could propel the new wireless standard into the mainstream.
The firm announced Wi-Fi 6E chips for both mobile phones (set to land in H2 2020) and wireless routers (which are already available to purchase).
The new chips will allow devices to capitalize on the rapid speeds and lower latency on offer with Wi-Fi 6E, which utilizes the high-level 6Ghz spectrum.
Oh, no! Not 6G! After the murder hornets, 6G is gonna cause a pandemic of slight snub platypuses! Head for the hills!!!

Huawei claims breakthrough in 5G antenna technology - here's what it brings | TechRadar

Coronavirus: 'Razor blades in anti-5G posters' on telegraph poles | BBC News

Razor blades have been hidden behind anti-5G posters on telegraph poles, telecoms engineers are being warned.
OpenReach workers were told to take care after blades and needles were found behind protest signs.
It comes amid a rise in the number of attacks on engineers, fuelled by a conspiracy theory wrongly linking 5G and coronavirus.
That special kind of stupid raises its ugly head again.

Your Data is Your Business. Tell #Google & #IAB to Mind Theirs

Petition


You go online. An advertisement appears for the exact coffee machine you looked up last week. Is it a trick? Nope.

When you are online, your personal information, like your:
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Location
  • Information derived from your browsing history (yes, the naughty stuff, but also health queries and voting preferences)
... is collected and broadcast to tens of thousands of companies in the online advertising industry.

Based on your data, companies size you up and decide in milliseconds if you’re a potential customer. If you are, they bid for the right to show you an ad. For coffee machines – or whatever else they believe would interest you.

This is not right. It is not legal.


You have the right to feel safe when looking up medical information, choosing a school for your child, or seeking support to come out to your family without this being broadcast to strangers.

Frage | Frio Theme nicht für Smartphones gedacht?

Frage an !Friendica Support

Hallo Zusammen, ich nutze Friendica ja am Desktop, auf dem Smartphone und auch auf dem Tablet. Dabei kommt das Theme Frio zum Einsatz. Allerdings ist mir dabei aufgefallen das beim Erstellen von Frio offenbar nicht viel Wert auf die Nutzung auf dem Smartphone gelegt wurde. Oft wird der Platz sehr ineffektiv genutzt und das Erstellen und Kommentieren von Beiträgen ist ein Krampf. Das sieht dann so aus:



Dank @Steffen K9 🐰 weiß ich inzwischen wie der klassische Composer aktiviert werden kann. Das sieht dann beim Erstellen von Beiträgen folgendermaßen aus, also um Welten besser:



Meine Frage ist nun wie Eure Erfahrungen mit Friendica und Frio im Zusammenhang mit dem Smartphone ist. Irgendwie habe ich das Gefühl das es nur auf den Desktop optimiert wurde.

Exxon Mobil: Oil giant prosecuted over climate ′lies′


Far-reaching allegations about how a #climate-sinning American multinational could shamelessly lie to the public about its wrongdoing mobilized a small group of New York students on a cold November morning. They stood in front of New York's Supreme Court last week to follow the unprecedented lawsuit against Exxon Mobil.

The case is not about the damage to the planet the energy giant has caused. Instead, Exxon Mobil is being forced to answer allegations that it played down the consequences of climate change to consumers and investors for decades.

2G may not be switched off in the UK for another decade | TechRadar

The UK Spectrum Policy Forum says any switch off of 2G networks should be carefully planned and might not take place until the 2030s.

Mobile operators hope that a ‘sunset’ of 2G will reduce operational costs and free up spectrum for 5G services, however some users and applications are dependent on the gaining infrastructure.

Some elderly and rural users require 2G, as do the government’s smart meter project and the EU’s eCall system that connects vehicles to emergency services in the event of an airbag deployment.

Google Maps is getting more detailed spoken walking directions | Engadget

Google is rolling out a Maps update that adds more in-depth spoken walking directions, with the aim of helping vision-impaired people navigate with more ease. The detailed voice guidance feature will inform users when to turn and tell them when they're approaching a large intersection, so they can exercise more caution when crossing. If users accidentally move away from their route, the voice will let them know Maps is re-routing them.
Also means you can use earphones and leave your phone in your pocket and avoid being the dead phone zombie in an RTA.

Sneaky Android adware hides its own icon to avoid deletion – here’s how to remove it | TechRadar

Security researchers at Sophos have found a manipulative strain of adware in the Google Play Store that attempts to avoid removal by hiding its own icon in the launcher, or by disguising itself as a legitimate system app.

The researchers found 15 apps in the Play Store that serve no purpose other than to display intrusive ads, and are unusually difficult to uninstall – and there may still be more undiscovered.

Google is cracking down on new phones launching without Android 10 | Android Authority

There’s one thing worse than waiting for your phone to get a new version of Android, and that’s a brand-new phone launching with an old version of the platform.

Fortunately, Google is cracking down on this practice (h/t: XDA-Developers), as it will no longer approve new devices running Android 9 Pie after January 31, 2020. In other words, new devices submitted to Google after this date will need to run Android 10.

How to install Google Apps on Huawei Mate 30 Pro | Android Authority

By now, most people know that the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro smartphones will not ship with Google apps on board. Originally, we thought you would be able to unlock the bootloader to install Google apps on a Huawei Mate 30 Pro, but the company recently dashed those hopes.

Luckily, there appears to be a fairly simple workaround — discovered on Reddit — which allows a user to run Google apps with no rooting, unlocking, or software hacking necessary. However, the method does come with some considerable privacy and security risks, so it is by no means flawless.

Apple iOS 13: Is Facebook And Google’s Worst Nightmare Coming True? | Forbes

Apple’s updated operating system will now show you how often your location has been recorded and by which apps. It will do this proactively via a pop up, which shows a map of where you have been tracked, including the option to allow or limit it.
...
Along the same theme, another blow to apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp is a change in Apple’s iOS 13 that will not allow messaging and calling apps to run in the background when the programs are not actively in use. Before, apps such as these were able to collect information on what you were doing on your device.

How to get around with Apple Maps’ Look Around in iOS 13 | Cult of Mac

your area has coverage, that is. Look Around is just getting started, and covers very few places. Street View, on the other hand, is available for pretty much anywhere, including underwater, up mountains and on hiking trails.

Why is Look Around better? Well, it’s faster, for one. And it just looks nicer. The images are super-high-resolution and full-screen. Using it on a 13-inch iPad Pro feels like taking a virtual street tour of a neighborhood.

Here’s why so many apps are asking to use Bluetooth on iOS 13 | The Verge

Apple’s new iOS 13 update adds a new privacy measure that requires apps to get your consent in order to use your device’s Bluetooth. After installing the latest version of iOS, trust me when I say you’ll be surprised by the number of apps asking for Bluetooth permission the next time you open them. Some might seem very strange (like Dunkin’ Donuts in my case), but others probably won’t make you think twice about giving the thumbs-up.
