wine

wine enables linux, mac, freebsd, solaris and android users to run windows applications – “wine is not an emulator” – instead of simulating windows it translates windows api calls on-the-fly – wine is free software under constant development – codeweaver sells a supported version as crossover – commented from wine:

this brings us to the chicken and egg issue of linux on the desktop. until linux can provide equivalents for the above applications, its market share on the desktop will stagnate. But until the market share of linux on the desktop rises, no vendor will develop applications for linux. how does one break this vicious circle?

… wine is an answer, they released wine3.0 with is higlights @winehq

  • direct3d 10 and 11 support.
  • direct3d command stream.
  • android graphics driver
  • improved directwrite and direct2D support

google knows

“google knows everything” – bots basically crawl the internet to fill a database, it’s about content, statistics, locations and people’s gender, age, a lot more …

websites use google analytics to optimize their page – ip, browser, os, etc. is reported to google, no personal information transfered, but with this characteristics a template could created – example: when login a forum, specialized to financial advices, you could get extra credit offers or you searched for tenancy law, new flat offerings aren’t displayed – technical feature like ip masking are as save as google take care about their responsibility

… they have the almost ability to predict the future, like:

larry page google founder, alphabet ceo, mentioned “we are no longer living in a mobile-first world, we are in a mobile-only world.” – mobile changed already from second to first screen in web usage

sundar pichaigoogle ceo, said ai is “one of the most important things that humanity is working on. It’s more profound than, I don’t know, electricity or fire,” – ai (artifical intelligence) already found a way in today’s smartphones, it is the biggest tech trend of 2018

about your privacy in google hands – you can have a look what google knows about you at history.google.com/history or display saved passwords facebook also knows o.O

to force this improvement and to ensure privacy the general conditions are written down in law, additionally each personal data needs to be compliant to gdpr (dsgvo) from may 2018

under-glass fingerprint

update3.0: vivo and huawei phones use optical technology to scan the fingerprint through the display, samsung presented a prototype of the company’s ultrasonic fingerprint reader

update2.0: samsung’s s10 should get in screen fingerprint reader, like vivo and at the same time iphone like face recognition

update: samsung’s s9 still not provided in-screen fingerprint reader, vivo updated with dual fingerprint scanner

since samsung had to replace the 2. camera to place with the fingerprint sensor, because couldn’t provide under-glass fingerprint in S8 – vivo is the first company to reveal this feature, while S9 will launch in about one month
