Opera Max will help you better control your apps

Most smartphone owners are unaware of how much data they use running apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and more. Soberness comes at the time of consumption of the entire Internet package.

Unlimited mobile internet is not that popular yet, and most users use limited data packets. However, these can be quickly consumed, especially if they are used in the background continuously.

The good news is that you can easily avoid the uncontrolled use of your data package. All you have to do is install Opera Max, which has just been equipped with a completely new feature that informs the wearer of the data. The tool provides a notification that tells which app gets or sends the data, and how big is the transfer. To do this, you can set a limit, after which we will receive notifications.…

From the Baltic, parts of the wreck of the famous Mars ship of the 16th century were excavated.

From the bottom of the Baltic Sea, scuba divers scooped parts of the wreckage of the famous 16th-century Mars ship belonging to the fleet of Swedish King Eritrea XIV Vasa. It was the largest war ship that floated in the Baltic Sea in the sixteenth century.

Cannons from the Mars deck will be available from August in a museum in Vaestervik (east coast of Sweden).

– Large water tank is already waiting for the excavated elements. We will be analyzing it in front of the audience – said SVT television professor. Johan Roennby from the University of Soedertoern.

Scientists have been trying unsuccessfully to locate the ship for years. This was accomplished in the summer of 2011, when a group of Swedish scuba divers and archaeologists came across a wreck 75 feet (10.5 nautical miles) north of Oland. The ship was identified thanks to the coat of arms of the Vases found on one of the bronze cannons.

Mars sank in 1564, besieged by a fleet of 37 ships from Denmark and Lübeck after two days of fighting on account of the explosion of dust on board.

Built of solid oak wood, the ship was fitted with 107 guns and carried 800 people on board.

Mars is larger and older than the famous Vasa ship, sunk in 1628 and mined in 1961, which is now housed in a museum of the same name in Stockholm. Therefore, according to historians Mars is more interesting.

Professor Roennby hopes that the ship’s surface to be shipped will serve as a new tourist attraction in the future for a 1: 1 replica of the ship.…

Orion in anticipation of a test flight

On December 4, the 13th launch of Orion’s first space mission was launched. Test flight is to test in practice how the construction of the first vehicle designed for the manned flight to Mars.

Orion is a spaceship built to take people further than ever before. Its mission is to bring crew members into space on board, to provide an emergency return, to uphold the vital functions of passengers while traveling, and to safely land on the surface of the planet.

During the test flight, Orion (with no crew on board) circulates the Earth twice, about 5800 km (15 times higher than the ISS), and then enters the Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of about 32,000. Km / h, which will warm up the protective shield of the ship up to 2200 degrees Celsius.

At the end Orion will land in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California, where the US Navy teams will be waiting for the capsule.

During the Orion EFT-1 mission, the capsule will be launched into orbit at the top of Delta IV Heavy, the heaviest variant of 70 meters and a total weight of 733000 kg.…

Legal bot fights with mandates

Experts estimate that by 2035 some 20 million people will lose their jobs because their jobs will take over. Although this is unavoidable, one might expect the machines to perform rather than complicated tasks. Meanwhile, it turns out that they can also replace … lawyers.

The best example of machine functionality in this area is the DoNotPay bot, created by Joshua Browder. This is a tool for appealing the issued credentials and for the time being addresses the mandates imposed on drivers living in New York.

Interestingly, it is extremely effective in what it does. The bot, which has started to work relatively recently and has so far appealed in the case of 250,000 mandates, and has been successful at as many as 160,000 cases, protecting people from the need to pay them.

Browder has created this tool because he believes that drivers’ mandates do not fulfill their role and that they are simply treated as a means of budgeting, so they have decided to protect New Yorkers from it. Browder announces the expansion of its service to other US cities and the development of a version of software that will assist in making referrals in other areas as well.…

Airbus patented an airplane with detachable cab

Long distance travel is best done aboard an airplane that is definitely faster than a car or a train. This method of traveling has some disadvantages, but it is mainly related to the moment of boarding. Airbus engineers have developed a technology that can make this process easier.

Anyone who travels by plane knows exactly how tedious the process of boarding is. First you have to stand in line for check-in, then check your luggage and only after some time you can board, put luggage to the hatch and take their own place.

However, Airbus engineers consider that there is a place for innovation and that they have developed a design with a detachable cabin. Thanks to that, passengers waiting to fly, they would not have to sit in the waiting room until the machine approached the sleeve, but they would sit on the plane immediately. To be exact, in its cabin part, which would be placed in an airplane, as it currently does with containers for the transport of goods.…

Microsoft is withdrawing from the smartphone market

Microsoft Corp. It announced further layoffs in the smartphone division, just two years after its acquisition of Nokia mobile phones, which was an unfortunate attempt to defeat market leaders Apple and Samsung.

The American company has announced that it will release 1 850 people, mainly in Finland, and will write a $ 950 million write-down on smartphones. No information is provided as to how many people are currently employed in the department.

A Finnish trade union spokesman told Reuters that the redundancies ended up in Microsoft’s work on new phones.

“In my opinion, Windows 10 will be the operating system, but no new phones will appear,” Kalle Kiili said.

In a statement, Microsoft announced that it will continue to work on the Windows 10 platform and maintain the production of Lumia smartphones, but has not been informed whether new Windows phones will be released.

Microsoft bought the $ 7.2 billion Nokia cell phone division in 2014, but the company failed to rebuild this portion of its business and announced a write-off of $ 7.5 billion and release of 7 800 people last year.

In the first quarter of this year, the share of Windows smartphones in the global market fell below one percent, according to Gartner.

At the beginning of May, Microsoft sold its simpler and cheaper phones for $ 350 million.

The company has announced that it will likely release 1,300 people in the Finnish mobile division and will liquidate R & D in the country. There are also no additional details provided that in other countries the redundancies will cover 500 people.

“We are concentrating on working on a phone that distinguishes us,” said President Satya Nadella in a statement. – We will continue to innovate in devices and develop cloud services across all mobile platforms. ”

In 2008, Nokia dominated about 40 percent of the global mobile industry, and late in the year it lost out to the development of touch screen smartphones.

As a result, Nokia and Microsoft have released thousands of employees in Finland in ten years, and the lack of other jobs has become the main reason for the current economic stagnation in the country.

We have a very difficult situation right now … We need to quickly create new jobs, “said …

NASA tests the Martian lander

ADAPT is a joint effort between NASA engineers and specialists from Masten Space Systems and is based on the Masten XA-.1B Xombie reusable mast with vertical takeoff capability. The new lander will be far more accurate than the previous model and will allow scientists to land in the places they want.

With the small distance traveled by Mars rovers, this is a very important issue as it will allow for better exploration of selected areas. In the past, accuracy was a major problem, for example, the Curiosity landing zone had an area of ​​over 120 square kilometers and where it hit was largely a matter of chance.

NASA conducted several successful ADAPT tests at the end of last year. The new Lander is equipped with the Terrain Relative Navigation, Lander Vision System and Fuel-Optimal Large Diverts. The task of all these systems is to create a skeleton to observe the terrain over which it flies and then to select a convenient location where it could safely land.

Such accuracy will provide many benefits to scientists.…

ESA has presented Martian rover designs

As part of the ExoMars program, the European Space Agency plans to send its own robots to Mars to explore rock samples for another decade. Two prototypes of such machines have just been shown, which will soon be tested to prove their usefulness.

The prototypes are called Bridget and Bryan, and soon they will start testing in the center of Airbus Mars Yard in British Hertfordshire. These are not typical Martian roaches like the Curiosity, but they have very similar drilling equipment, allowing the sampling of rocks that will then be sent back to Earth.

Bryan’s equipment will allow him to drill 180 feet deep, where scientists hope to find evidence of the existence of water. But before that happens, the samples will be tested in an on-board lab capable of detecting microscopic traces of life. Only then can they begin the transfer operation.…

New threat for Linux users

Experts from ESET have discovered a new threat for Linux users. It is malware, which gives hackers full control over the infected machine, allowing it to use it for DDoS attacks.

Due to its low popularity, until recently, Linux was a relatively secure platform. However, this is a thing of the past, because experts are increasingly detecting the various threats targeting this platform.

Experts from ESET have identified another threat of this kind. This is a new malware called Rakos that uses a backdoor and allows you to break the password by brute force, and then take control of computers and servers running on that platform.

Specialists believe that Rakos hackers are planning to take control of as many devices as possible to create a botnet that is then used for DDoS attacks and spamming.…
