  ASUS Zenfone 6 to launch soon in India, will be a Flipkart exclusive
Posted by: jayc137 - Today, 06:19 - Forum: Android News - No Replies

During the launch event ASUS mentioned that it did not increase the price of its flagship phones. So, if the company does the same in India, the Zenfone 6 price in India will be the same as the Zenfone 5Z's launch prices.
So, the ASUS Zenfone 6 expected price in India could be as follows.

  • 6GB RAM + 64GB storage: Rs 29,999
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB storage: Rs 32,999
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB storage: Rs 36,999
This is pure speculation of course, and the real prices could vary. But if these prices are any indication, the OnePlus 7 will have some serious competition.

  Samsung Ready to Give Up on 64GB Storage Option for Mobile Devices
Posted by: silversurfer - 17 May 19, 12:15 - Forum: Android News - Replies (1)

Quote:Samsung is pushing harder for more storage on its high-end devices, as the company apparently wants 128GB to be the new default.
After giving up on the 64GB storage option on the Galaxy Note 9 and the Galaxy S10, Samsung is now gearing up to make a similar change in the tablet category as well, with a future model to start at 128GB on the base model.
A report from SamMobile notes that Samsung is currently working on two new Galaxy tablets known as SM-T860 and SM-T865 (both are variants of the same base model and come with Wi-Fi and LTE, respectively) and they could boast at least 128GB storage. The tablet is likely to be the successor to the Galaxy Tab S4 and may launch as Galaxy Tab S5.

This makes sense since it’s a tablet we’re talking about here, but the change also shows that Samsung is very committed to increasing the amount of storage offered to customers who purchase high-end devices.

Samsung insisting for more storage on its high-end devices is good news not only for customers of the South Korean company, but for the entire mobile industry too, as it could force rivals to offer increased storage as well on their models.

  The Latest iPhone Sale Figures Are Anything but Good News for Apple
Posted by: silversurfer - 17 May 19, 12:13 - Forum: Apple MAC OS & iOS News - No Replies

Quote:The iPhone installed base in the United States barely improved in the quarter ending in March, with data provided by CIRP showing that Apple improved from 189 million in December to 193 million units.
This means Apple’s iPhone has posted a growth of 2% quarter-over-quarter and 12% year-over-year, albeit CIRP warns that the US installed base of the iPhone continues to plateau.
Living proof are the figures achieved by Apple last year when the company recorded a growth of 4% over the previous quarter and 19% year-over-year.
“The US installed base of iPhones continues to plateau,” said Josh Lowitz, CIRP Partner and Co-Founder. “Relative to the most recent quarters, and especially to the past two or three years, slowing unit sales and longer ownership periods means that the growth in the number of US iPhones has flattened considerably.”

Lightbulb Avast Blog Tips & Advices: Advice for Young Women Getting Started in Cybersecurity
Posted by: harlan4096 - 17 May 19, 06:58 - Forum: Avast Blog News and Info - No Replies

[Image: TVDumYE.png]

Sindhura Gade, a cybersecurity engineer at Avast, gives advice to young women based on her own experience

Being an engineer in the cybersecurity space means working on finding answers to potential security threats and finding better ways to safeguard our families. I work on a variety of technologies, and with cybersecurity growing rapidly, I get to stay updated on the latest software trends and practices. Building these solutions also lets me learn about the internal workings of the web. Most importantly, I work in a field that will continuously interest me, challenge me, and keep me passionate.

I got my bachelor’s degree in computer science from a university in India – Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU) – where my professors always encouraged me to explore the branches of computer science. I took part in presentations, debates, and group discussions that allowed me to absorb as much information as I could in the vast field of IT. Having a wonderful set of friends and co-students that shared this perspective was a blessing too, which ensured an atmosphere of healthy competition. Not everyone is as fortunate as I was, and I hope the following suggestions will be helpful to students, especially young women, looking to break through in cybersecurity.

How to get started in cybersecurity

What type of engineer are you?

The first thing to understand and figure out is what part of cybersecurity do you want to get into? Do you like to work on powerful servers and applications behind the scenes? You might be a back-end engineer. Are you empathetic and interested in a user’s experience? You might be a UI engineer. Do you see the big picture and like working on architectures of entire systems? You might be a network engineer.

Once you have determined this, you can begin exploring the “technology stack” where you need to gain experience. You must acquire a strong understanding of designing and developing efficient software programs.

Here are some tools to help you reach that goal:


* Computer science courses in college on topics such as Information systems and Information Technology security
* Online courses to get an understanding of the space and technologies. Coursera is my recommendation
* Certification training to learn specific operating systems and software

Search for job postings in the space and go through the requirements for the positions. This will give a very good understanding of:

* What to expect from the role
* What technologies must you gain knowledge and expertise on
* What security/software aspects and workings you must have a complete understanding of

Develop a pet project that you can showcase in your interviews. This will help you gain an end-to-end understanding of a challenge in your chosen field and prepare you for job interviews.

Lightbulb Duckduckgo vs Google: A Security Comparison and How to Maximize Your Privacy
Posted by: harlan4096 - 17 May 19, 06:47 - Forum: Heimdal Security Blog Articles - Replies (1)

[Image: heimdal-logo.svg]

The pros & cons of each option. Bonus: How to make the most out of all Duckduckgo products

Preoccupied with privacy? You’ve come to the right place. In today’s guide, I’ll go through everything you should know about Duckduckgo vs Google, how each of them works and how you can make the switch work for you (or not). You’ll also get performance comparisons, pros and cons for each product and advice on how to make the most of your privacy.

Should you decide in the end to switch to the Duckduckgo search engine over Google (I won’t tell you what to do, the decision is entirely yours after getting all the info below), I’ll also share extra advice on how to make the most out of your Duckduckgo products. Since the software suite is not limited to the search engine, there are also some software products to consider. But first thing’s first, let’s check out the Duckduckgo vs Google competition, comparison, and in-depth analysis.

Duckduckgo vs Google: The Competition Between Them and the Shift of Users

Usually, when people think of the Duckduckgo vs Google competition they are immediately thinking of the search engine Duckduckgo vs the search engine Google. Namely, this debate is about whether to use Duckduckgo or Google as your default browser search engine and / or homepage.

Even though Duckduckgo has other tools and apps besides its search engine, as I’ll get into below, for now let’s keep referring strictly to the search engine. This way, you’ll understand better what all the fuss is about with the Duckduckgo vs Google debate. Here’s an overview of public perception on it and everything you need to know about the context of this competitive comparison.

As the tools and techniques used for data gathering have slowly turned into more and more comprehensive algorithms tracking scores of information, both consumers and businesses have become more preoccupied with privacy. The rise of the so-called big data and big tech conglomerates has led to an increased level of surveillance which makes most people uncomfortable.

The fact that all the search history of users is tracked by Google (even in incognito browser mode) has contributed to the growing discomfort of concerned users.

If they’re not particularly concerned with how Google itself manages their personal data, then they’re concerned about data breaches.

Nowadays, with so many breaches making the headlines, it’s hard to trust that your data will remain as private as you’d like. Even if the entities you’re willing to share that data with have your confidence, no one is truly unhackable.

So How Are Duckduckgo and Google Competing?

Google doesn’t compete with Duckduckgo so much, in the grand scheme of things. Google is the big guy in the industry and while they are certainly aware of their smaller competitors catching up, it’s not really the same league. Yet.

Virtually all internet users tend to be Google search engine users, by default. The main strategy for Google is to try to hold on to the users it has by implementing better security and privacy protection measures. This is something definitely on their agenda, but the issue still remains that user data is tracked. Therefore, Google is leaking some users who are leaving its boat in order to climb aboard that of Duckduckgo.

For their part, Duckduckgo are directly positioning themselves as an alternative and competitor to the Google search engine. Their very blog is aiming to answer the very direct question of ‘Why You Should Use Us Instead of Google’.

So, why do some users prefer switching to Duckduckgo from Google? Here’s our unbiased comparison.

Information SanDisk's First 1 TB microSD Card Now Available
Posted by: harlan4096 - 17 May 19, 06:44 - Forum: Hardware News - No Replies

[Image: sandisk-1tb-card-crop_678x452.jpg]

Marking a new high in microSD card capacities, Western Digital has started shipping its flagship SanDisk Extreme 1 TB microSDXC card. This is the company's (and industry's) first 1 TB microSD card, and while the $450 launch price is definitely steep, for portable devices that need a massive amount of storage in a thumbnail-sized removable card, a full terabyte is the biggest step up yet.

When it comes to performance, the memory card is thankfully a member of SanDisk's higher-performing Extreme line, so performance isn't too pokey for reading and writing a full TB out of the drive. Formally, SanDisk rates it for read speeds up to 90 MB/s and write speeds up to 60 MB/s when working over a standard UHS-I interface. This works out to roughly 3 hours and 4.6 hours to read and fill the card, respectively. In fact at this point SanDisk is outright bottlenecked by the UHS bus; the card can actually read at 160 MB/s and write at 90 MB/s when used with proprietary hosts that support DDR transfer modes. So microSD Express and its vastly higher transfer rates can't get here soon enough.

Along with its advertised peak performance, SanDisk's supersized card supports video speed class 30, which among other things means that its minimum write speeds need to be at least 30 MB/s. The card also meets the requirements for the A2 app performance class, meaning that it can sustain at least 4000 random read IOPS and 2000 random write IOPS, and supports capabilities such as command queuing and caching.

Unfortunately for tech enthusiasts, SanDisk isn't saying much about the 1 TB card under the hood. Given the capacity, the card is likely based on the company’s latest 96-layer TLC or QLC 3D NAND memory. But short of tearing it apart, this is hard to confirm.

For the moment the new 1 TB microSD card is available directly from Western Digital for $449.99. But eventually the product will hit regular retail stores too.

Information Samsung Samples 32 Gb DDR4 Memory Chips
Posted by: harlan4096 - 17 May 19, 06:43 - Forum: Hardware News - No Replies

[Image: samsung_ddr4_dram_10nm_18nm_678x452.jpg]

Samsung recently began sampling of its 32 Gb capacity DDR4 memory chips. The new products will simplify production of high-capacity memory modules that use multiple DRAM packages.

Samsung’s 32 Gb A-die DDR4-2666 chips are comprised of two stacked 16 Gb DDR4 dies produced using the company’s 10 nm-class process technology. Samsung offers two versions of 32 Gb DDR4 packages: one featuring a 2G x8 organization, another featuring a 1G x16 organization. The former is seen by memory controller as two memory devices, whereas the latter is considered as one DRAM device. The DDPs (dual die packages) come in standard 78 or 96-ball FBGA form-factor and use the industry-standard voltage of 1.2 V.

JEDEC’s DDR4 specification only describes 4 Gb, 8Gb, and 16 Gb memory devices. As a result, DRAM makers have to use advanced packaging techniques to build chips for high-capacity memory modules for servers or workstations. DDPs are not something particularly new, but 32 Gb DDR4-2666 DDPs are unique to Samsung.

32 Gb DDR4 memory chips will enable makers of modules and PCs to use fewer DRAM chips for building high-capacity solutions for applications that require high memory density or small form-factors. Obviously, dual-rank memory modules will still require support from memory controllers, but at least it will be easier to build high-capacity memory sub-systems using these chips.

Samsung does not disclose pricing of its 32 Gb DDR4-2666 DDPs, but it is obvious that they will be sold at a premium given the fact that they are only available from Samsung and they are harder to build than SDPs.

Information Going forward, Multi-process can't be turned off anymore in Firefox
Posted by: harlan4096 - 17 May 19, 06:40 - Forum: Browsers News & Tips - No Replies

[Image: firefox-multi-process-cant-disable.png]

Mozilla plans to remove configuration options in upcoming versions of the Firefox web browser that allow users to disable the browser's multi-process architecture.

Mozilla introduced the multi-process architecture in the Firefox web browser in 2016. Firefox would use multiple processes to divide loaded sites between them and use different processes for the browser's own functionality.

While that increased memory usage, it also meant that Firefox would become more stable in the process and less prone to site crashes taking the entire browser with them. Mozilla's implementation was different to Google's. Chrome uses one process per site, Firefox puts multiples sites in a single process.

Firefox's Multi-process architecture received numerous improvements over the years. Mozilla added more processes to it and introduced a sandbox security feature later on that depended on it.

Mozilla plans to remove two Firefox preferences from any version of the web browser going forward. The change is planed for Firefox 68.

* browser.tabs.remote.force-enable -- Enforces the use of multi-process in Firefox if it is not enabled by default, e.g. because of accessibility.

* browser.tabs.remote.force-disable -- Disables multi-process in the Firefox web browser.
