Hackers Demand $70M in Bitcoin After Kaseya Ransomware Attack

 Hackers were on Monday demanding $70 million in bitcoin in exchange for data stolen during an attack on a US IT company that has shuttered hundreds of Swedish supermarkets.


Researchers believe more than 1,000 companies could have been affected by the attack on Miami-based firm Kaseya, which provides IT services to some 40,000 businesses around the world.


The FBI warned Sunday that the scale of the "ransomware" attack -- a form of digital hostage-taking where hackers encrypt victims' data and then demand money for restored access -- is so large that it may be "unable to respond to each victim individually".


Sweden's Coop supermarket chain was among the most high-profile victims, with "a majority" of their 800 stores still closed three days after the hack paralysed its cash registers, spokesman Kevin Bell told AFP.


Coop is not a direct customer of Kaseya's, but its IT subcontractor Visma Esscom was hit by the attack.


Bell stressed that the situation was looking "positive compared to a few days ago", but the few hundred stores that have reopened were relying on alternative payment solutions, such as customers paying using their smartphones.


Experts believe the attack was probably carried out by REvil, a Russian-speaking hacking group known as a prolific perpetrator of ransomware attacks.


A post on Happy Blog, a site on the dark web previously associated with the group, claimed responsibility for the attack and said it had infected "more than a million systems".


The FBI believes that REvil, which also goes by the name Sodinokibi, was behind a ransomware attack last month on global meat-processing giant JBS, which ended up paying $11 million in bitcoin to the hackers.


The blog post claiming responsibility for the Kaseya attack said the hackers would post a decryption tool online "so everyone will be able to recover from attack in less than an hour" -- if they were handed $70 million in bitcoin.


Kaseya describes itself as a leading provider of IT and security management services to small and medium-sized businesses.


The company said Sunday that it believed the damage had been restricted to a "very small number" of customers using its signature VSA software, which lets companies manage networks of computers and printers from a single point.


But cybersecurity firm Huntress Labs said in a Reddit forum that it was working with partners targeted in the attack, and that the software was manipulated "to encrypt more than 1,000 companies".


Kaseya said it had "immediately shut down" its servers after detecting the attack on Friday and warned its VSA customers to do the same, "to prevent them from being compromised."


The company has released a tool allowing its customers to find out whether their own computer systems have been compromised by the attack.


- Russia-linked hackers strike again? -


In recent months numerous US companies, including the computer group SolarWinds and the Colonial oil pipeline, have been the victims of high-profile ransomware attacks blamed by the FBI on hackers based in Russian territory.


US President Joe Biden recently raised the threat in talks with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, and on Saturday he ordered a full investigation into the Kaseya attack.


While "the initial thinking was it was not the Russian government", Biden said, "if it is either with the knowledge of and/or a consequence of Russia, then I told Putin we will respond."


Loic Guezo, head of Clusif, a French association of cybersecurity experts, said the Kaseya attack bore a strong resemblance to last year's spectacular attack against SolarWinds, a software company.


But he added that it was unclear why the hackers were this time demanding such a massive sum of money, and suggested it may have been done with political objectives to put pressure on the Biden administration.

PSG Beat RB Leipzig To Reach Their First Ever Champions League Final



 Paris St-Germain are through to their first Champions League final courtesy of a deserved victory over RB Leipzig in an entertaining semi-final in Lisbon.

One of Europe's biggest spenders, but also one of the continent's most high-profile underachievers on the grandest stage, PSG finally seized their opportunity courtesy of goals from Marquinhos, Angel di Maria and Juan Bernat.

The former, who scored the first of two late goals in a comeback win over Atalanta in the last eight, rose to head home a superbly delivered free-kick from Di Maria.

The Argentine forward then finished well from close range following an audacious flick from Neymar after Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi had relinquished possession with a dire kick.

With the fit-again Kylian Mbappe and Neymar terrorising the Leipzig backline, the French side should have been out of sight before the break, but the latter twice hit the post - from a clipped finish then an opportunist free-kick from range - before side-footing another chance wide at the near post.

Prior to PSG's second, Yussuf Poulsen had Leipzig's best chance but fired wide after he was found by a Dani Olmo pull-back.

Bernat sealed the win in the second half with a header that Leipzig felt was offside but was legitimate as the prone Nordi Mukiele, who had slipped in the build-up, was playing the scorer onside.

PSG will find out who they face in Sunday's final when five-time winners Bayern Munich play Lyon in the other semi-final on Wednesday.

This is glorious, but nervous, virgin territory for PSG.

The vast sums of money pumped into the French club by owners Qatar Sports Investments since 2011 has enabled them to dominate domestically. In Europe, though, not so much.

In the three seasons prior to this one they exited in the last 16, and before that they went out in the quarter-finals four years in a row - results that ultimately cost managers Laurent Blanc and Unai Emery their jobs.

Thomas Tuchel, though, has found a way to break the glass ceiling, leading the side from the French capital to their first major European final since the Cup Winners' Cup in 1997, a year before Mbappe was born.

You cannot begrudge them it either on the basis of Tuesday's performance, which was calm, confident and incisive, in contrast to a nervy and often negligent display from their opponents.

The first and third goals gave Di Maria his 88th and 89th assists in all competitions since he joined the club in August 2015 - only Barcelona's Lionel Messi has more in Europe's top five leagues in that time.

He also now has nine goal involvements in the competition this season, surpassing the tally he managed in helping Real Madrid lift the trophy in 2013-14.

Neymar's brilliant assist took him to 23 goal involvements in 19 appearances for PSG (14 goals & nine assists) in the Champions League and while Mbappe's finishing was rusty, he was still able to regularly fashion chances for himself and others.

When this trio have started together this season, PSG have lost just one of 12 games. With them fully fit and firing, they will be a match for whoever they face in the final.

First look at PlayStation 5 with design, 'price and UK release date'



This is the first look at the PlayStation 5 as over a dozen games were revealed tonight to gamers.

Sony bosses remained tight-lipped on the console date and price which will be the first new PlayStation design in the series since 2013.

But they revealed a first look at the new console which shows a much more streamlined and futuristic look.

The new PlayStation 5 has gone through a complete colour change from black to white and each console will come with Grand Theft Auto V online.


What was announced
Sony is revealed a list of over a dozen games to be available for the upcoming console to demonstrate its specs and capabilities.

Sony Interactive Entertainment president and chief executive Jim Ryan said Thursday's event will show games which "represent the best in the industry from innovative studios that span the globe".

What games were shown?

Returnal

A lost astronaut explores a dark alien world controlled by her nightmares and memories in a battle with her own sanity.

The first person shooter/adventure game looks to be a kind of Resident Evil meets alien

Sackboy - A Big Adventure

Sackboy seems to be a platformer where you jump around and collect things but in better graphics.

He doesn't speak so there's not much else to say about him really.

Destruction - Allstars

An explosive cut-scene showed people fighting and crashing monster trucks into each other around an arena.

It looks very much like Tekken vs Rocket League.

Kena - Bridge of Spirits

An adventure game where a young woman is on a quest to kill cartoon-like spirits.

Looks very much like Zelda

Oddworld SoulStorm

Abe the star of the original PS2 game Abe's Oddysee is back for an explosive ride with very impressive graphics.

It's up to you to save Tokyo and battle some of the scariest looking ghosts and demons in this supernatural thriller.

It looks like it may have VR elements built into it.

It seems like you're in some kind of spaceship again and travelling across alien worlds with the hope of establishing a new colony.

Godfall

A medieval hack and slash platformer that's available at the end of 2020.

Solar Ash

This trippy, 2D adventure doesn't really make much sense. You're a robot who wakes up in this strange dimension with unusual music. The camera turns upside down a lot. It's coming out in 2021.

Hitman III - Death Awaits

The graphics are immense, almost film-like as you watch Agent 47 wander through woodland.

The new Hitman is coming out in January 2021 for the dramatic conclusion of the trilogy.

He's based in Dubai and this is definitely the most visually impressive game debuted so far.

Astro's Playroom

Another VR game made its debt as you control Astro in fictional land in this platformer.

Little Devil Inside

People with weird shaped heads are killing monsters to the sound of classical music in this cartoon game which doesn't really seem to amount to anything before climaxing with a giant 2D dragon battle.

Just when you think they can't improve the graphics of NBA games, developers manage it again.

Zooming in on the beads of sweat to show off the detail that has gone into this year's edition.

Bugsnax

A strawberry wanders around talking to his mates before a giant talking Australian walrus gulps him up then his arm turns into a strawberry to a catchy themetune.

This is mental.

Demon's Soul

Another Medieval hack and slash game but this time with much better graphics, looks a bit like Elder Scrolls.

Deathloop

Assassins are taking each other out in this futuristic first-person adventure game which looks very much like BioShock.

The Bethesda adventure shows the main character repeatedly being killed in dozens of different gory ways while being hunted by various characters. Before dying and starting again.

This could be the best one of the night. There's also a plot here but I'm not sure what it is.

Resident Evil 8

Be afraid. The graphics look absolutely incredible on this one and the sound seems like it will give you a nervous breakdown.

It's set to be released in 2021.

Pragmata

Time seems to be standing still as a man in a space suit desperately tries to save a little girl while satellites rain down on the planet.

Horizon Forbidden West

A young hero takes on nature and the earth in this impressive adventure platformer.

The tech specs revealed

The announcement confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will have 4K blueray compatibility and an Ultra High Speed SSD.

The PlayStation 5 introduces the Dualsense - which definitely looks more like an Xbox controller.

It has a slightly larger look and feel to the DualShock 4 with a two-toned colour design which contains haptic feedback to add "a variety of powerful sensations" and adaptive triggers onto the L2 and R2 buttons.

A PlayStation 5 spokesperson said: "Haptic feedback, which adds a variety of powerful sensations you’ll feel when you play, such as the slow grittiness of driving a car through mud. We also incorporated adaptive triggers into the L2 and R2 buttons of DualSense so you can truly feel the tension of your actions, like when drawing a bow to shoot an arrow.

"DualSense also adds a built-in microphone array, which will enable players to easily chat with friends without a headset – ideal for jumping into a quick conversation. But of course, if you are planning to chat for a longer period, it’s good to have that headset handy."

PlayStation 5 UK Release Date
The UK release date is expected to be towards the end of this year, shortly after or at exactly the same time as it goes on sale in the US.


Price
Rumours suggest the PlayStation 5 may retail at £599.99, according to screenshots of an amazon posting put on Reddit.

While the actual price has not been confirmed, it is thought to be around this level, if not slightly cheaper.

The PlayStation 5 is due to be released at the end of this year, around the same time as rival Microsoft's own next-generation console, the Xbox Series X.

It means the console is likely to be available in time for Christmas.

Nigeria Federal Govt May Sell Public Assets To Fund 2020 Budget


Indications have emerged that more public assets may be put up for sale by the Federal Government as the Bureau of Public Enterprises reviews the 2020 Privatisation Work Plan.

Checks by our correspondent revealed that work on the review of the privatisation work plan is ongoing.The revised 2020 budget has a deficit of N5.37tn.

Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, had said the Federal Government intended to finance the deficit through domestic and foreign borrowing, as well as proceeds from privatisation of public assets.


Our correspondent learnt that the BPE is reviewing the 2020 Privatisation Work Plan.The review of the work plan was informed by the drop in the projected revenue that will accrue to the Federal Government within the year.
Director General of the BPE, Mr. Alex Okoh, confirmed the ongoing review of the privatisation work plan to our correspondent on Thursday.

Responding to enquiries by our correspondent, Okoh said, “We are currently reviewing the Privatisation Work Plan for 2020 to determine the transactions that are feasible within the fiscal year in view of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 health pandemic.

“We should be ready by the end of next week.”
Although Okoh did not disclose whether the review will require putting more public assets up for sale, the need to source funds for the N5.37tn deficit in the 2020 budget may compel the Federal Government to seek more revenue from additional privatisation transactions.

Before the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic instigated the ongoing review of the 2020 Privatisation Work Plan, the BPE had targeted the generation of N266.8bn as revenue from the sale and commercialisation of public assets during the year.

The sum of N3.9bn would be expended on the trans-actions, leaving a net revenue of N266.8bn.The bulk of the projected 2020 transactions are in the energy sector, where the BPE targeted N268.3bn.

The transactions from which the BPE planned to generate the N266.8bn include carry overs from the 2019 approved work plan, such as completion of sales of Yola Electricity Distribution Company and Afam Power Limited and Afam Three Fast Power.The transactions also included the Nigeria Integrated Power Projects.

Other transactions in the initial 2020 work plan include sale of additional shares of Geregu to Amperion Power, Tafawa Balewa Square, Bank of Agriculture, Dowell Schlumberger Nigeria Limited, NMC houses, Nigeria Commodity Exchange and River Basin Development Authorities and Lagos International Trade Fair complex.

NIGERIA: Kidnapped Nigerians Who Paid Ransom Can Demand Refund From FG-Falana


Lagos lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, Wednesday, called on Nigerians paying a ransom to secure freedom for their abducted loved ones to feel free to approach the courts to compel the federal government to refund same because, in his words, “the responsibility for protecting lives and properties lies squarely with the government.”

Falana disclosed this yesterday at the 18th Anti-Corruption Situation Room, ACSR, organized by the HEDA Resource Centre in partnership with the McArthur Foundation.

The senior advocate who was the keynote speaker at the event also flayed anti-graft agencies in the land for what he called the selective prosecution of corrupt cases; a development he stressed, makes winning the fight against corruption difficult.

Falana said: “If a family pays a ransom to secure freedom of their abducted ones; they should approach the courts and demand a refund of the amount paid because the primary responsibility of government is to secure the people.”

Infinix S4 Reviews and Insights with AI Camera

infinity s4 powerful android smartphone in nigeria

Infinix recently this year launched its latest budget-centric smartphone, the Infinix S4 , It comes in a single variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

At this price point, the phone comes with a host of exciting features including a large 4000mAh battery, triple rear camera setup and a 32-megapixel AI front camera. Let us check out some of the Features and Designs

Prices and Availability

As you already known is a budget-centric smartphone and very affordable.

JUMIA GHANA OFFERS GH₵ 685 | JUMIA NIGERIA OFFERS ₦ 44,990

Design and Display

The right side of the device features volume controls and power on/off button while on the left, there is dual-SIM and microSD card slot. The bottom panel of the phone has a micro USB port, a speaker grille, and a 3.5mm audio jack.


On the display front, you get a 6.26-inch HD+ display with 20 x 1520 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 500nit screen brightness. The viewing angles on the screen are satisfactory and in outdoor conditions, readability was not an issue. In bright sunlight, we were easily able to operate the phone. The Infinix S4 is quite lightweight at 155 grams and due to its compact size, it fits into the hand perfectly.

During our usage, we found the screen brightness is very impressive. The brightness is not harsh to stress your eyes and the auto brightness works very efficient to adjust with the environment. The screen brightness can also be controlled automatically. There is an eye care mode on the smartphone as well for a comfortable reading experience at night.

Hardware and Software

Infinix S4 features modest hardware. It is powered by an Octa-Core 2.0GHz, MediaTek Helio P22 chipset with PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It is backed up by a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card slot. This octa-core mobile chipset is mediocre but it allows you to do all the day to day tasks with ease without many instances of lag.

A1 Engine on a smartphone

We didn’t face any issues with regular usage, even when engaging with multiple apps. We were able to open apps within 1-2 seconds of clicking. So as far as performance is concerned, we did not have any lag when using the smartphone, and it was capable of delivering a good experience.

Lighter games like Subway Surfers and Candy Crush ran smoothly on the Infinix S4 but it is not meant to tackle high-end games. So if you are a heavy game user, we would not advise you to go with this smartphone. Keeping in mind that it is a budget-centric smartphone, the performance is good.

For unlocking the phone, the company has provided a fingerprint scanner and face unlocking feature apart from regular pin pattern. We found the fingerprint sensor and face unlock feature quite fast and accurate for unlocking the device with no noticeable lags. Both the features unlock the phone in seconds. The fingerprint scanner also allows you to take photos, accept calls, browse through pictures, and dismiss alarms using gestures.

On the software side, the Infinix S4 runs on Android 9.0 Pie, which is based on the company’s custom UI XOS 5.0 on top of it. The user interface comes loaded with some good features. It features an app drawer where all the apps are sorted in alphanumeric order.


In terms of bloatware, the device comes with apps like XTheme, XClub, Phone Master, PHX Browser, Face Unlock, Flipkart, WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, Weather, Opera News and more. Out of them, one can delete just a few pre-loaded apps like Flipkart, Facebook, Opera News, and Whatsapp while company-owned apps like XTheme, XClub, Phone Master cannot be deleted.

The XTheme helps you with different themes, the XClub is a customer forum and the XHide is to hide pictures, videos. The Phone Master app lets you free up RAM to boost performance. The phone has different gestures such as a three-finger swipe to capture screenshots, flip the phone to mute incoming calls and a double-tap to wake the screen. There is also smart panel available on the device’s home screen side which gives you easier access to some functions. It can be used to store your most favourite apps or games as it can be customized according to your choice.


Camera

Now coming to the device's other USP, the camera. The Infinix S4 is equipped with a triple rear camera setup with a combination of a primary 13-megapixel snapper with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel 120 degrees ultra-wide camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel camera as well. The rear setup is accompanied by a Quad-LED flash. Up front, the Infinix S4 has a 32-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and screen flash. Both the front and rear camera support video up to 1080p.

32MP powerful camera on a smartphone


The camera UI in the phone is pretty simple and you get different options like video, AI cam, beauty, bokeh, and AR shot where users can click fun images with some masks that are preloaded in the smartphone. The AI cam allows the camera to automatically adjust the settings for a perfect shot in different lighting conditions and subject movement. In the settings, you can also do various tasks like tagging your location to an image, delaying the capture, among others. For the selfie camera, it has multiple features like video, HDR, Flash, Portrait mode, beauty, and AR shot.

The rear camera does a decent enough job for this price, and capture objects clearly enough. Daylight shots were above average with good clarity and overall colour reproduction. The phone does an excellent job of capturing macro shots as well as the detailing. Even the autofocus is fast. The wide-angle lens will also not disappoint you. The low-light camera performance of the Infinix S4 was average. When pictures were taken in low-light, they appear to be grainy with some noise. Objects at a distance weren't very recognisable, but this is acceptable at this price. The bokeh mode lets you take photos by blurring out the background and highlighting the subject in the image. However, you may notice that the edge-detection isn’t that great in this mode. You can also control the background blur for a perfect bokeh shot.

Battery and Connectivity

The Infinix S4 has a 4000mAh battery which will easily last for a full day even through heavy usage. Our usage included some calls, checking e-mails, frequently checking social media accounts of Facebook and Instagram, watching movies and checking websites. In our reviewing period, we did not notice any excessive drainage of battery even while playing games. The battery will easily last a day and a half with light usage. There is no fast charging support in the device, so the phone takes its own time to charge. It takes around than 3 hours to fully charge the phone from zero to 100 percent.

On the connectivity front, the smartphone supports dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi, GPS/AGPS, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5 mm audio jack, FM radio, and micro USB port. The phone measures 156 x 75 x 7.9 mm.

Video Reviews 



Our Verdict

Image result for infinix s4

Infinix S4 has face unlock, fingerprint scanner, a triple camera module, 32MP selfie camera, long-lasting battery and a vibrant display at just GH₵ 685 in Ghana and ₦ 44,990 in Nigeria is really a bargain. Despite a mid-range processor, the phone is one of the better contenders in the entry-level budget segment. It is a suitable device for your daily tasks and can be the right pick for you if you are a moderate smartphone user.

It’s easier now because you don’t have to decide if you’re willing to sacrifice any features when picking an entry-level model over the higher-end ones. Before the newly-updated base model was released, there was a division within the four 13in models. Apple offered two entry-level models without the Touch Bar, and two high-end models with it. (The entry-level models were missing some other features, as well, but the main missing feature was the Touch Bar). So when it came down to picking a 13in MacBook Pro, you had to consider whether you were willing to give up some features for the lower price.

The Touch Bar-less models are no more - they now have the Touch Bar and those other missing features at the same prices as before. Now, it basically comes down to processor speed, storage capacity, and price.

The new MacBook Pro 13-inch for 2019 (starting at $1,299, $1,499 as tested) packs a much faster 8th gen Intel Core CPU and both Touch ID and the Touch Bar. And while the keyboard still look manageble, Apple has introduced minor enhancements that will (hopefully) make it more reliable. Add in more than 10 hours of battery life and you have one of the best laptops around, and the best Apple laptop for most people

MacBook Pro 13-inch price and availability

The 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,299 and includes a 1.4-GHz 8th-gen Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.The $1,499 model I tested boosts that to 256GB but keeps the other specs the same

If you're willing to spend $1,799, you can move from two Thunderbolt ports on the entry-level and midrange models to four Thunderbolt ports and upgrade to a faster 2.4-GHz 8th-gen Core i5 CPU.

Design

This is going to sound like a broken record, but Apple really needs to shake things up on the design front. The 13-inch MacBook Pro has sported the same aesthetic for years. It's a handsome and elegant look, for sure, with a solid unibody aluminum chassis. But the design is a bit on the chunky side, and the bezels look chunky, too, next to the likes of the Dell XPS 13.



Weighing 3.02 pounds and measuring 11.97 x 8.36 x 0.59 inches, the MacBook Pro 13-inch is portable enough to slip in a backpack without it weighing you down. Still, the Dell XPS 13 (2.7 pounds 0.3-0.46 inches thick), the HP Spectre x360 (2.8 pounds, 0.6 inches) and the MacBook Air (2.8 pounds, 0.2-0.6 inches thick) are all slimmer and lighter

Ports

Just the kind of minimalism I don't like, this version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro packs a whopping two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which are both on the left side. That means you can charge your system and use one other peripheral at the same time, unless you spring for a dongle or use a USB-C hub at your desk. The right side houses a headphone jack


Despite having a thinner chassis, the Dell XPS 13 offers three USB-C ports (two of which support Thunderbolt 3), plus a microSD card slot. And the HP Spectre x360 comes with both USB-C and a traditional USB-A port.

Sure, you can get four Thunderbolt 3 ports from Apple if you step up to the $1,799 model, but I don't feel like you should have to pay an extra $500 for that privilege (though that config does include a faster CPU and graphics).

Display

Whether you're a creative pro or you just appreciate a stellar picture, the 2560 x 1600-pixel Retina Display on the 13-inch MacBook Pro is one of the best I've seen on any laptop.

When watching the 4K trailer for The Lion King on this laptop, I could make out individual wisps of fur on Simba's paw as he placed it on the muddy footprints of his father, and the sweeping African vista looked gorgeous with its pale blue sky and sun-dappled baobab tree in vibrant green.

Whether you're a creative pro or you just appreciate a stellar picture, the 2560 x 1600-pixel Retina Display on the 13-inch MacBook Pro is one of the best I've seen on any laptop.

The MacBook Pro's panel also impressed me, as it registered a very good 163% of the color gamut and a bright 441 nits. That MacBook Air's screen is good, but it's dimmer and covers less of the color spectrum (100% / 343 nits). The 1080p version of the Dell XPS 13 (126% / 357 nits) also falls behind the MacBook Pro, as does the 4K display model (119% / 375 nits. The screen on the HP Spectre x360 (150%/287 nits) is about as colorful as the MacBook Pro but notably dimmer.

Audio

The dual speakers that flank the keyboard on the MacBook Pro produce rich and nuanced sound, as I discovered when streaming "What The?!" from 311. The swirling guitars and pulsing beat were powerful without overwhelming the dueling vocals from S.A. Martinez and Nick Hexum. Meanwhile, James Earl Jones' voice sounded even more god-like than usual when I watched The Lion King trailer, and the soaring strings got very loud without getting distorted at max volume. But if you want a more intimate concert, you'll want to invest in a solid pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

Keyboard and Touchpad

As someone who like quality  I do find the 4th-gen Butterfly keyboard on this new MacBook Pro to be quieter and slightly more comfortable. More important, Apple says that it has added a new material to the mechanism to prevent reliability issues, such as accidental double presses or keys not registering.

The 0.86 mm of key travel we measured is still well below that of most laptops, but that is properly balanced by the 70 grams of actuation force required. In my testing, I reached 71 words per minute with 92.3% accuracy, which is comparable with my average. There are rumors that Apple is working on a whole new keyboard for a future MacBook Pro, but there's no telling when or if that will show up.



There's not much to say about the touchpad, other than that it is very large and works really well. You just don't have to think about scrolling or performing gestures like three-finger swipes up for activating Mission Control view. And that's the way it should be.

Touch ID and Touch Bar

Apple used to reserve the Touch ID sensor and Touch Bar for the more premium 13-inch MacBook Pro, but they've now made their way to the entry-level model. I'm happy about one of those decisions. Touch ID makes it easy to unlock your Mac with a single press, so you don't have to rely on a password. Plus, you can use it for the App Store, iTunes, Apple Pay and in the Safari and Chrome browsers. Yes, a Face ID feature would be faster, but that will probably come in future Macs.

Performance

Here is the biggest reason to get the 13-inch MacBook Pro over the 2019 MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro packs a much faster quad-core, 8th-generation Core i5 processor (U series), compared with the weaker dual-core Core i5 chip (Y Series) in the Air.



There's a pretty stark difference regarding real-world performance. Take our video-editing test, in which we transcode a 4K clip to 1080p. It took the MacBook Pro just 14 minutes and 42 seconds, compared with 36 minutes on the Air. By comparison, the Dell XPS 13 took 19:20 and the HP Spectre x360 22:30.

In everyday use, I found the MacBook Pro very responsive. Even with 22 tabs open in Chrome, the Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw trailer started streaming instantly. And that was with Slack, Skype and Pixelmator also running in the background.

On Geekbench 4, a synthetic benchmark that measures overall performance, the MacBook Pro scored 17,366, which is more than double the MacBook Air. The MacBook Pro also surpasses the XPS 13 (14,936) and the Spectre x360 (14,935).

The MacBook Pro continues to offer one of the fastest SSDs in a laptop. On the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test, the system notched a write speed of 1,220 MBps. The MacBook Air was slightly behind at 1,011. The XPS 13 mustered only 226.4 MBps on the same test, while the Spectre x360 was slightly better at 616.3 MBps.

The MacBook Pro continues to offer one of the fastest SSDs in a laptop.

Battery Life

According to our  Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing at 150 nits of screen brightness, the MacBook Pro lasted an excellent 10 hours and 39 minutes, which outlasts the 8:51 from the Air.
Still, the Pro doesn't make our list of laptops with the longest battery life, as other ultraportables last longer on a charge. The HP Spectre x360 turned in a runtime of 12:07, and the 1080p version of the XPS 13 endured for 12:22.

Heat

No surprise here. The MacBook Pro kept its cool on our heat test, in which we stream video for 15 minutes before measuring different parts of the notebook. The MacBook Pro stayed under our 95-degree comfort threshold, hitting 91 degrees on the keyboard, 88 degrees on the underside and just 82 degrees on the touchpad.
But overall, this system is a better value than the MacBook Air at $1,099. You get a much faster processor, brighter display and considerably longer battery life for your money

1 Trillion Dollars Apple Losses 20% In Share Prices Even with New Phone Released.

Image result for apple company

How Apple went from a $1 trillion company to losing over 20% of its share price in 3 months
For the past two months, Apple's stock price has been plunging. Apple announced that they would make at least $4 billion dollars less than they previously said, which crashed the stock.

It dropped eight percent immediately in after-hours trading. And they blamed Donald Trump's trade war with China, battery repair, and a general pessimistic climate in China. It's no longer the most valuable company in the world. You know, it's not worth a trillion dollars anymore. There have been a lot of consequences of this recent plunge.

Smartphone sales globally are flat or falling. So Apple may actually be out-performing its competitors like Samsung, but it's still a change in one of the biggest trends, which is that it was growing every single year.

They were selling more iPhones than the year before, and it looks like that has stopped. I think part of it is also, you know, their Mac business is very big, iPad business. You break these out, these are huge companies even without the iPhone. The iPhone is just such a great product. It's not that they bet it all on the iPhone, that was just the device that grew the fastest and had the biggest sales.

Without a doubt, people are getting less excited for new iPhones than they used to be. And the fact that this year's split over a couple of models, that it's unclear what the big new features are, there's no doubt that excitement for an iPhone launch is not what it was in 2012, 2013.
WordPress.com
 One of the other things that they're trying to do is they're trying to say, "Hey, we have all these iPhones out there. We're gonna be able to sell them Apple Music, and iCloud, and apps, and make money from it that way." So in that way, they understand how much of a weakness it is to have, 60, 70% of their revenue come from the iPhone, but they're trying to make money off of those customers through services as well, and that's a big focus for the company.

You also have an issue that the iPhone XR is not selling super well. It's not flying off the shelves. It's not that quality has gone down in any way, shape, or form, it's that how much better is this XR than my iPhone 6S, and at the end of the day, they do all the same things. They text, they download apps, they take photos, you know, there hasn't been a game-changing new feature.

Well, really heavily this year, Apple is promoting a trade-in offer for the phones, which effectively make them less expensive. Which brings the iPhone XR down to, if you get the maximum amount, $450. So they've been advertising that $449 price point on its website, and it's not really the real cost. This is new for Apple. Bloomberg reported that it was a bit of a fire drill over there in their marketing department when they realized the XR was not selling to what they thought it was going to. And if someone thinks that they can get a phone for $450, they're more likely to go into the Apple store, check it out, and maybe they'll exit with it.

Even the least expensive Apple phone, for a lot of people around the world, that's a lot of money, especially when there are devices, Android devices, at under $100. But part of it is, Apple's not interested in selling to everyone in the world. Apple is a luxury brand. They are giving up huge new markets that they could bring into the Apple ecosystem if they were to put together a less expensive phones.

One of the things they could do next year is really come out with a phone that wows people. The iPhone X, which came out in 2017, was kinda supposed to be that with its edge-to-edge screen and the Face ID, but you know, in anecdotal evidence, people don't see those as the super killer compelling features.

 If they want to return to iPhone growth, and really stoke the stock, they need, they need a cool new phone that is markedly different than last year's. But their big focus for next year is increasing the number of people who pay them a monthly subscription. They're rumored to be releasing a video service next year, too. In my opinion, they need to come out with hot new products. That's what they are, it's a hits business. They need to come out with an iPhone that makes everyone drop everything and say, "I need this."

Review Of Nokia 7.2

The Nokia 7.2 is a mid range phone that, like the other Nokia-branded phones. It looks like a device that should cost at least $100 more than it actually does, it has a clean version of Android software with no bloatware, it’s guaranteed to get the latest major Android updates and security patches for two years, and it costs considerably less than a flagship phone.

It’s tough to find an affordable phone with all of those qualifications, though it’s not quite as difficult as it used to be. The Nokia 7.2 sells for $349, between the $300 Moto G7 and the $400 Pixel 3A, and that extra $50 for Google’s phone gets you a lot, including a stellar camera (derived straight from the Google Pixel 3, with its computational photography smarts in tow) that wipes the Nokia 7.2 clean. Plus, the Pixel 3A works with all US carriers and MVNOs, whereas the Nokia 7.2 is limited to just GSM carriers, like T-Mobile and AT&T.

GOOD STUFF

  • Grippy matte-textured glass design
  • 128GB of internal storage by default, plus microSD support for more
  • Stock Android 9 Pie, with Android 10 coming soon

BAD STUFF

  • Processor shows its limits during some games
  • LCD screen has poor viewing angles
  • Photo quality falls well below the Pixel 3A
  • Cellular connectivity limited to GSM carriers


A few other quality-of-life wins with the design include its LED-backlit power button that gently pulses to alert you to notifications. It’s more elegant than sticking a notification LED near the selfie camera, and it’s not bright to the point of being a distraction at night. On the opposite side of the phone is a dedicated Google Assistant button. It allows you to ask for the weather, find out what’s on your calendar, and more. If you’re someone who constantly wants to chat with the voice assistant, it’s great to be able to discreetly press this button to summon it instead of shouting “Hey Google.”

Inside, this phone has Qualcomm’s midrange Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB of RAM, and, generally, running most apps and games won’t be an issue. It’s enough power to handle all of the apps that I use on a daily basis. I also found it capable enough to run most games that I’ve been playing on Google Play Pass. Titles like Limbo, Star Wars: KOTOR, and Monument Valley 2 run well, with occasional hiccups. You can expect comparable performance here to the Google Pixel 3A’s Snapdragon 670: good enough for most, but not flagship-quality performance.



The Nokia 7.2’s 6.3-inch LCD screen has a large screen-to-body ratio, aided by the teardrop notch, and its HDR upscaler working in the background makes video content from any app look more contrast-y. It also has official HDR10 support for Amazon Prime Video content.

Games and movies look good, but, generally, this is another department where the Pixel 3A one-ups Nokia’s phone. It has an OLED screen that provides deeper blacks, colors that seem to pop off the screen, and its viewing angles are tough to beat. That said, both screens are 1080p, and the Nokia 7.2 and Pixel 3A look equally sharp when it comes to the fine details.

It’s hard not to notice the Nokia 7.2’s raised, circular camera module with a few lenses packed in. This array includes a 48-megapixel (Samsung S5KGM1, f/1.79 lens) standard camera, an ultra-wide (f/2.2, 118-degree) lens with an 8-megapixel sensor, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor for adding bokeh to portraits. The Nokia 7.2’s photo quality can be surprisingly good in the right conditions. Photos taken in environments flooded with natural light are well-exposed and detailed. But these cameras tend to over-sharpen details, and that garish look might not be what you’re looking for.

On the other side of the phone, its selfie camera and a few of its features are actually great. It features a sharp 20MP front-facing selfie camera, which shows off almost too much detail. (A beautification slider can reduce pores and other details you may want to obscure.)

The colors it produces aren’t as accurate as what the rear-facing cameras can put out, but it produces bright, detailed photos usually on the first try. The selfie camera features built into Nokia’s camera app have some cool modes, including picture-in-picture mode, which displays what the front- and rear-facing cameras see together on the screen. You can use this to take stills or video from both cameras at the same time. It’s not super useful in every situation, but it’s fun to be able to record and narrate a live look at what’s happening all around the phone without twisting it or switching cameras in the moment.

Nokia is getting closer to making the phone that might crack into the mainstream in a similar way that the Moto has done with its budget-friendly Moto G7.

No other phone in this price range offers its alluring combo of 128GB of onboard storage by default; a svelte, matte glass design; and stock Android software with guaranteed updates. Its strengths even make it a convincing choice among other mid range phones.

Sony Confirmed PS5 Will Be Launch in 2020 Summer

Image result for sony ps 5
Sony PS 5

Sony has confirmed that its next-generation console will be called the PlayStation 5, and it will be out next year, 2020 Summer

The company also announced several changes that it’ll be making to the controller on the PS5. Chief among them is replacing the current rumble technology that Sony has been using since the original PlayStation for new haptic feedback technology that it promises will offer a “broader range of feedback.”

The other big change that Sony is talking about  is a technology it’s calling “adaptive triggers,” which will go in the primary R2/L2 triggers on the PS5’s controller.

 According to Sony, developers will be able to “program the resistance of the triggers,” giving the example that you’ll be able to “feel” the increased tension as you draw back a bow or force you to push down with extra pressure if you’re driving through rough terrain. It sounds pretty similar to a Microsoft patent from earlier this year, which detailed a similar trigger system for a future Xbox controller.


Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan and PS5 system architect Mark Cerny gave us some additional details about the upcoming hardware. “There is ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware,” Cerny said, clarifying the company’s original announcement of ray-tracing support and allaying concerns that Sony might resort to software tricks to manage it.

With an  interview also with Sony we confirms that the PS5 will use standard 100GB Blu-ray discs Sony had previously confirmed that the console will offer a disc drive but all games will have to be installed to the internal SSD this time around.

That super-fast SSD is still the biggest update that Sony is showing off, and it says that the installation requirement is due to the speed difference between the optical drive and the internal solid-state one.

Sony does promise that the SSD’s improvements to how it reads data means that games will be able to take up less space, though, which should help soften the blow for the mandatory installation requirements. Sony will also let developers break up the installation of their games — say, by installing just the multiplayer components or just the single-player campaign — on the PS5.

 INSTALLATIONS WILL BE MANDATORY ON THE PS5

Also new on the PS5 is a “completely revamped user interface” that will show off far more detailed social features on the home screen. Sony promises that you’ll be able to see (and launch directly into) specific features of a game, like a single-player level or multiplayer match, directly from the home screen, instead of first having to launch the game and then navigate in.

All of this information joins the existing details that Sony has already revealed earlier this year, like the eight-core CPU (which will be based on AMD’s third-gen Ryzen line) and custom GPU based on AMD’s Radeon Navi hardware, “3D audio,” the support for 8K gaming (as well as for 4K gaming at 120Hz), a much lower power consumption option, PS4 backwards compatibility, and that ultra-fast SSD.

Other confirmed  details include the PlayStation 5 coming equipped with a custom-made AMD Navi CPU, support for 8K Ultra HD visuals out of the box, and a brand new power-saving mode that's a lot more efficient than that of the PlayStation 4.

Loss Two Pounds a Week With This perfect Earrings:True Story Of How Melissa Loss Her Weight

weightlossearring, Jewelry, Earring, earmassager


I have  never imagine a day where earrings would help you lose weight, but that day has in fact come. These bio magnetic ear stickers help shed pounds by applying pressure to a specific part of the ear. It acts as a form of acupuncture. Since the magnets are putting pressure on your ears, they help stimulate blood flow.

READ A WONDERFUL STORY OF MELISSA :

After the birth of her second son, Melissa, 27, found herself in the same situation as many other new moms with a few pounds left to lose and no idea how to do it. While she tried cleaning up her diet and she was a regular at the gym, the weight wasn't budging, so this mom turned to something a little less conventional: acupuncture. "I went into the chiropractor for my first time to get adjusted and have acupuncture done for my back problems," she says. "I was asking about all the things acupuncture can help with and she mentioned weight loss. My eyes lit up and I said 'sign me up, when can I start?'" she was so excited to start.



At first it was easy," Melissa says. "I just had to lay there while I got pricked all over my body (which actually felt kind of good) and then lay still for another 30 minutes after the last needle was inserted.

It was a dark room with relaxing music. It was a nice break!" But things took a strange turn when the acupuncturist "hooked the needles on my stomach up to a battery that pulsed electricity into them. Now that was a weird feeling. My abs were sore the next day!"

In addition to the weekly hour-long acupuncture sessions, the acupuncturist taped a small magnet to her ear that she was supposed to squeeze every time she felt hungry-a practice said to use the magnet's south polarity "to restore areas of weakness or deficiency in your system that can cause food cravings." Melissa laughs, "Yeah, I got some weird looks with that."

But what about results?

Did she get her pre-baby abs back? After 12 weeks of weekly appointments, she reports, "I feel that overall, it worked. It wasn't quick by any means. I lost about 1-2 lbs a week. The magnet worked as well. It actually took my appetite away the majority of the time, but I learned it doesn't help when you eat out of boredom." She adds, "I would do it again. The only reason I stopped was because it became a conflict with my schedule."

However, for people looking for a quick fix, Melissa cautions, "This isn't magic. You still need to eat right and exercise regularly. It just helps give you an extra boost along the way.

The Galaxy Fold in general doesn't quite fulfill the category of "smartphone" part so well. It offers something I'm not used to, and actually quite like a tablet in my pocket. At the same time, there's a massive compromise with something that I am used to and that I still need a regular smartphone with a full-size smartphone screen.

Turns out that enlarging the smartphone screen to a tablet's size is cool in practice, but not so practical in real time

The answer, of course, is to fold it up and use the smaller 4.6-inch screen on the exterior for easy one-handed use. But it's not the solution. It might have been fine eight years ago when I didn't do so much on my smartphone, but it's too narrow and small to be useful today.

Despite its revisions to become more durable and reliable, Samsung's Galaxy Fold still doesn't come highly recommended for three main reasons.


  • Samsung Galaxy Fold is  the first generation of a brand-new smartphone design , and first generations of anything should generally be avoided while companies work out bugs and kinks for future generations.
  • The phone is incredibly expensive even for an Average person at $2,000.
  • Is a  great  smartphone that does a good job of being a tablet , but it forgets to be a smartphone.
The Galaxy Fold is great at being a small tablet, but it ultimately fails at being a smartphone. Sure, we'd like a tablet we can store in our pockets, but we need the smartphone part, too! And it turns out the smartphone part is tough to compromise on.

I'm not being pessimistic about the Galaxy Fold. Even if it fit every need, I still wouldn't recommend it, even to those who can afford its expensive $2,000 price tag.We are in the world of smart phones and not Tablet.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Mara Group, Ashish Thakkar said the two phones will compete with Samsung, whose cheapest smartphone costs $54 (50,000 Rwandan francs), and non-branded phones at $37 (35,000 Rwandan francs).

He added that the company was targeting customers willing to pay more for quality.

“This is the first smartphone manufacturer in Africa,” he said, adding that, “Companies assemble smartphones in Egypt, Ethiopia, Algeria and South Africa, but import the components.”

“We are actually the first who are doing manufacturing. We are making the motherboards; we are making the sub-boards during the entire process. There are over 1,000 pieces per phone,” Mr Thakkar added.

He noted that the plant had cost $24 million and could make 1,200 phones per day.
