Facebook is making some changes and it’s not necessarily a good thing for everyone. For the longest time, Facebook has been plagued by “fake news.” They’ve been accused of contributing to the spread of viral fake news without doing anything to stop it. Facebook is now saying enough is enough. They’re making sure that users know that they’re serious about combatting misinformation on the internet.
According to TechCrunch, Facebook has made changes to users’ homepages. They will be working to push local news sites to the top of peoples’ feeds. Facebook is doing this because it will help users to get more localized content that is not only accurate but matters the most to them. Facebook is also doing this because they’ve been facing a lot of heat for the news sources that come across users’ feeds. Many mainstream media outlets are accused of being politicized. Therefore, Facebook wants to disassociate themselves with them, showing that they are independent and don’t share the same thoughts and beliefs.
Facebook users still have a say in all of this, however. They have the option to go into individual pages and click whether or not they want to see posts first on certain pages. Facebook cannot completely control what users are seeing. Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, is still proud of everything that they’re accomplishing. He believes by having users focus on local news, it’ll bring people together more than divide them. The new Facebook changes have already been taking effect across the United States. Facebook says it’s a work in progress until they ultimately decide how everything is going to work out.
People are split on the issues. On one hand, this is great news for users who are sick of seeing content that doesn’t interest them. On the flip side, there are also users who come to rely on Facebook for their national news fix. It will be interesting to see how this all balances out in the long run.
The era of automation just beginning and the 2020s are likely to be known as the decade of the self-driving car. Vehicles that are able to navigate and operate without human intervention, often in a far safer and more efficient manner, are poised to create sweeping changes to the very fabric of our daily lives. Everything from urban design to the transportation industry can expect to experience nothing short of a revolution thanks to advent of autonomous vehicles.
The sheer number of autonomous vehicles that can be expected in the next few years may be much higher than many people might assume, and there is a growing list of places where drivers may already be sharing the road with automated cars, trucks and even buses. While this new technology is still in its infancy, the latest vehicles show a great deal of promise and are often able to outperform their human counterparts in terms of operational safety, adherence to traffic laws and even reduced instances of driver-caused traffic congestion.
Removing human drivers from the equation is likely to have a major impact that will be felt across numerous economic sectors. While long-haul drivers, couriers and others who work within the transportation industry may be the first to experience changes due to the growing popularity and numbers of self-driving vehicles, they will not be the last. Automotive insurance providers, healthcare professionals who see large volumes of collision-related trauma and injuries and even those who deal in city and urban development may soon begin to see a great deal of change within their respective industries. Fully-automated vehicles have a lot to offer and the numerous and significant ways that they may begin to change the world around may be just a preview as to what future trends in automation may have to offer.
This is another exciting time to be a smartphone owner. For one thing, LG, Moto, Samsung and the other smartphone giants are getting their phones ready for release. These phones have some good updates that are going to make their phones faster as well as more durable. One thing to expect from the upcoming smartphones is high resolution video playback and recording, better security, and plenty of other features that make the smartphones worthwhile. One good thing about the chances of the upcoming smartphones is that they are always going to sell because of the need for upgrades.
The type of smartphone to get depends on the type of features one is looking for. People that live a rougher lifestyle may want a smartphone that has features that enhance the durability of the item. For instance, they may want something that is waterproof. The LG G7 is one phone that is going to be waterproof. This allows people to use the phone even if they have an accident that causes it to be wet. For people that want to have the latest and greatest, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is looking to be that phone. However, there might be some underrated gems that are going to outperform Samsung.
For people that are looking forward to these phones, there are a few things that they can do in order to make sure that they get the latest batch. One thing they can do is find out when they are being released. Another thing they can do is see if their carrier is going to carry the phones. They can pre-order the phones and get them shipped to their homes or just buy them at the store of their choice.
One thing that can be said about the smartphone market is that there seems to be an advancement every time someone turns around. It is not that long since the Samsung Galaxy S8 has come out. Now, there is already going to be an announcement of the S9. Samsung has announced that the S9 is going to have many subtle enhancements. This could mean anything. Perhaps it could fill in on the gaps that the S8 left. One thing that can be said about technology is that the advanced products are not always going to be the better products. There are many cases when newer products have caused people to miss the older products because of the power it had.
Fortunately, Samsung has looked at what it can improve on its new phone design and has come up with some rather small improvements that will actually be worth it for the phone. Samsung has scheduled a launch event in which it is going to go into detail about the new phone. Among the topics that will be covered will be the camera and the new wallpaper of the phone. The launch event is scheduled for February 25.
Samsung was the leader in the tablet market. Now it is taking over the smartphone market. Even though it has dipped into the smartphone market while it was handling the Samsung Galaxy Tablet series, it is putting more effort into smartphones and competing with the likes of Moto, HTC, ZTE, and LG. This is a very excited time for people that are into smartphones. They get to learn about the features of the new phone and decide whether or not it is worth getting the upgrade.
Even though companies have all but stopped making tablets, there is still another tablet that is on the way that is not a 2 in 1. This is the upcoming iPad from Apple. However, it is not like all of the other tablets. Instead, this tablet has a new design that is a lot like the latest Samsung Galaxy Phone. It has a screen that pretty much takes up the whole surface. The screen is almost 13 inches long which is pretty much larger than most tablets that are available.
Back when tablets have been a big thing, the size of the screen seemed to be 10 inches at the most. Many tablets were sold at as small as 6 inches when it comes to screen sizes. However, there has been changes in the market when it comes to tablets. For one thing, more tablets have been released with keyboards as 2 in 1 tablets. There is not much telling about what is happening with the upcoming iPad. One thing that is certain is that it is going to have to compete with the other tablets which are not similar to laptops with keyboards attached to them.
One thing that people have decided is that for the most part, the touchscreen only device is best left to the smartphones. However, given that Apple knows how to sell the products, it could turn out to be another well selling product. Among the features the new iPad would have is face ID, which is very similar to the features that the iPhone X has. Of course as more information is released, there will be more anticipation for the upcoming product.
If there is one thing that can be said for the smartphone market, it is that it is thriving. One thing that can be said is that almost everyone has a smartphone, and yet people are still buying it. One good way to profit and continue to profit in the market is to come up with something that is highly advanced and come up with ways to keep it updating. There are always updates being made to smartphones which will keep attracting customers. This is a bit like computer hardware and software. Given that the world is more or less computerized and online, people are going to be looking for the latest technology so that they can handle their entertainment as well as productivity.
People that are in the market for smartphones are probably looking for the best smartphones they can get their hands on. These smartphones will cost a lot so they may have to save money.
It is hard to think of a time before smartphones. People were still enjoying their flip phones. The idea of watching high definition video was not considered possible. Now, these phones have large enough screens to display video that is easy to see. Another thing is that the phones have a high resolution so that images are clear and sharp.
One of the best aspects of smartphones is how simple and accessible entertainment is. While in older days, people would have to put on a physical media device to watch something on T.V. the smartphone makes it possible to watch high quality programming on their small screen. This makes things better for people who are constantly on the move.

When it comes to what form of technology most people are dependent on, chances are it’s their smartphone. Many find themselves checking their phones constantly throughout the day to make sure that they aren’t missing out on anything. Most people head on over to Facebook to learn what’s the latest with their friends, family, favorite actors, news stories, and more. People waste a lot of time scrolling through Facebook in an effort to find the content that they want to see. It seems that finally, Facebook has a way to figure out what should and should not show up on your homepage.
According to TechCrunch, Facebook is launching their newest form of technology. They’re adding a snooze button which will allow users to mute people, groups, and pages for a month. This new feature allows users to hide the content they don’t want to see. This is a much more practical solution then unfollowing or unfriending someone. Perhaps, what you’re looking for this month won’t be relevant next month or thereafter. This is great for people who are preparing for a vacation but don’t want to be reminded of it until the future.
The new feature is easy to access. Users just have to click the top-right drop-down menu that is found on a post. They then have the option to mute that content for 30 days. Many users are digging this whole idea for those going through a breakup. Many people end up being friends after a breakup and therefore deleting them off of Facebook altogether seems a bit soon. This option is great for that because a user can hide them and the painful memories while the breakup is still fresh. After a while, they can choose to unhide them or hide them again.
Although this seems like a minor update, Facebook hopes it will have a big impact. There have been numerous studies done where Facebook and social media, in general, is having a negative impact on user’s health. This feature will help combat that by giving them more control over what they want to see.
Recent news on the robot dubbed K9 brings up questions on the practicality of some of the uses of robots we are seeing. This particular robot has been used to patrol the area around the San Francisco offices of the SPCA. The main selling point the SPCA uses when asked why it is replacing human security guards, is the cost. It costs roughly 60% less to utilize the robot than a human. Reports of vandalism, break-ins and other small crimes to the SPCA drops when using the robot, but they also drop when using a human as well. From that, we get the explanation that a human cannot report such crimes in as timely a fashion as a robot can.
This has all come about because the area of town in question is rife with homelessness. This is the main reason for security and every company in existence looks for ways to decrease their overhead costs. In this day and age, security is considered overhead, and robots can be made just for that function. But if the main reason stated for using a robot vs. a human is that it can relay pertinent information faster, two questions need to be answered.
One, how does the quicker relay of information ultimately deter individuals from committing crimes?
And secondly, if the deterrent is realized, does that justify the 60% savings?
More math would be needed to calculate that one, but chances are the answer would be no. Robots cannot stop a crime from happening, whereas a human can. In addition, it is more cost effective to stop a crime than spend money fixing the result of that crime. We all know that technology is ever-advancing and it will play a larger part in our society whether we like it or not. We just need to keep in mind that practicality should always trump using technology simply for the sake of it.
One of the most frustrating things about surfing online and visiting various sites is the number of popup ads and other ads that pop up out of the blue and make visiting certain websites a very frustrating and annoying experience. Over the last few years, the experiences with pop up ads and other types of ads has escalated to a frightening point. Enter Google to the rescue. Google recently announced that Google Chrome will stop showing certain annoying ads, even the one’s that were produced or served by Google. Only time will tell if this is true.
The Date Is Set
For a long time, Google was kind of sketchy about the date that the Google Chrome Ad-Blocker would go into effect. However, they recently revealed that the date is set for February 15, 2018. The real deal is that Google is going to remotely transform Chrome Browsers into automatic ad blocking machines for their users. However, the word is that this is a function that will only be available to a select few users.
Those that have been on the Internet for a decade or longer, probably remember the early ads that seriously interfered with browsing a website. Flashing banner ads would pop up along with irritating sounds and full page ads that would not go away, unless the visitor clicked on the ad. The Better Ads Program changed that through the development of a set of standards that must be followed by those producing or distributing ads online. Now, Google is stepping up the game too. Google Chrome will remove all ads that violate The Better Ads Program Standards. This is something to watch. Pulling ads will certainly diminish ad profits for violators.
A Better Ad Blocker
Google’s Chrome Ad Blocker is thought to be a better ad blocker. It is thought that other third party ad blockers block all ads, even those that are not violating ad rules and regulations. The Google Chrome Ad Blocker is able to differentiate between violators and non-violators.
