Facebook will announce presidential election result in Facebook and Instagram notifications

Facebook plans to put the name of the winner of the US presidential election at the top of Facebook and Instagram once it’s been projected by a majority of media outlets, the company says. The company also will label presidential candidates’ posts with a link to its voting information center, according to Facebook spokesperson Tom Reynolds. The company plans to “show the candidate’s name in notifications at the top of Facebook and Instagram that say ‘A Presidential Winner Has Been Projected — <name> is the projected winner of the 2020…

Beware a New Google Drive Scam Landing in Inboxes Technology 

Beware a New Google Drive Scam Landing in Inboxes

SCAMMERS JUST FOUND a new phishing lure to play with: Google Drive. A flaw in the Drive is being exploited to send out seemingly legitimate emails and push notifications from Google that, if opened, could land people on malicious websites. The scam itself is nothing new—messages asking you to click on dodgy links are as old as the internet itself—but could catch a lot of people off guard. The smartest part of the scam is that the emails and notifications it generates come directly from Google. On mobile, the scam…

Microsoft did some research. Now it’s angry about what it found

I’m quite used to hearing that Microsoft has annoyed someone. Usually, it’s a Windows user who’s angry about Redmond’s keenness to slip unwanted products onto their screens. I was rather moved, then, to hear that Microsoft itself is enduring conniptions of the most fundamental kind. You see, the company recently commissioned research company YouGov to ask 5,000 registered voters about their innermost feelings. One or two deeply felt highlights emerged. 90% of respondents admitted they’re worried every time they share their information online. 70% privately pointed their fingers at the…

Windows 10 October 2020 Update is now available with an updated Start menu and more 38

Microsoft is releasing its Windows 10 October 2020 Update to over a billion users today. Much like last year, this second Windows 10 update of 2020 is more of a Service Pack than a major release. Microsoft has, however, made some interesting tweaks, including a refreshed Start menu, some Alt Tab changes, and the bundling of the new Chromium-powered Microsoft Edge. The biggest visual change is, of course, the updated Start menu. Microsoft’s new design kills off the solid color behind app logos and adds a transparent background to tiles instead….

Apple Music launches a TV channel for music videos

Today, Apple launches Apple Music TV, which is exactly what it sounds like: Apple Music on television. It’s a free, curated, 24-hour live stream of popular music videos (though it’s only available to US residents); you can watch it in the browse tabs of the Apple Music app and on the Apple TV app. Apple Music TV is interesting because it seems like a direct shot at YouTube’s dominance of the music video space. The new channel will host video premieres at noon ET every Friday — starting with Joji’s “777”…

Apple’s ‘Hi, Speed’ event: What to expect from next iPhone announcement

Who’s ready for a new iPhone? Tuesday, Apple will unveil four new editions of one of the best-selling U.S. consumer devices in a virtual presentation on Apple’s website and YouTube channel. Instead of mid-September, when Apple traditionally introduces new iPhones, the company was forced to delay the event because of manufacturing delays in China caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The big news this year: connectivity to the new, emerging speedy 5G wireless networks, hence Apple’s title for the event: “Hi, Speed.” Apple enthusiast websites peg the four models as starting…

Police need warrant to obtain WiFi location data, privacy activists argue

Civil liberties and privacy advocates have taken the side of a convicted robber in Pennsylvania who says police abused their power by collecting data from a college WiFi network to tie him to the armed holdup of campus pot dealers. In legal documents filed Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union and the nonprofit Electronic Frontier Foundation sought to persuade the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that police at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, violated the U.S. Constitution when they failed to seek a warrant to obtain digital evidence in the form of…

An iPhone 12 launch in October is a big 5G win for Verizon

Apple’s announcement of an event next week led many to speculate that the long-rumored new 5G iPhones were imminent. The company usually uses September to announce its latest phones, even with the expectation that this year’s crop would be delayed until October. As it turns out, next week’s event will be focused on the Apple Watch and iPad Air. Those wanting to learn more about the iPhone will likely need to wait until next month. For Verizon, the delay gives the nation’s largest wireless carrier some much needed time as it builds out its 5G network for Apple’s next marquee…

Google says your Chrome tabs will soon load up to 10 percent faster

Google is improving the performance of tabs in Chrome, according to a new blog post, and the changes could lead to speed gains of up to 10 percent. “When you’re checking off one task after another from your to-do list, waiting even a few seconds while your tabs load can slow you down,” Google’s Alex Ainslie wrote. Chrome will speed up loading times for active tabs by taking back resources from those that’ve been idle for awhile, according to a Chromium post. “We see improvements not only in loading speed…
