New Firefox browser will have Google as default search in US

Uncategorized November 19, 2017

iDeal-Classifieds-Firefox-Quantum Mozilla has been quietly sitting on the sidelines for a while, content to slowly work on improving Firefox. But the release of the Firefox Quantum shows that the company is now ready to join the big league once again and take on Google’s Chrome.

Vietnamese firm claims to bypass iPhone X’s Face ID with a $150 mask

Uncategorized November 12, 2017

iDeal-Classifieds-Face ID A Vietnamese security firm Bkav Corporation’s researchers have claimed they have managed to bypass the iPhone X’s Face ID system using a $150 specially-build mask, in spite of Apple efforts to specifically prevent that deception. The mask combines a 3D-printed frame with makeup, a silicone nose, and 2D images, plus “special processing” in select areas.

Microsoft and Amazon alliances to integrate Alexa and Cortana digital assistance, puts Google under pressure

Uncategorized October 14, 2017

Google-Amazon-Partnership-iDeal-Classifieds Microsoft and Amazon announced a surprise partnership on Thursday in which they were jointly releasing for free a new software tool for developers called Gluon. Gluon makes it easier for developers to build AI systems, but if we look at this partnership of Amazon and Microsoft its interesting that it challenges Google in its big area of dominance for Google Now. Amazon and Microsoft are partnering to improved integration of their Alexa and Cortana digital assistants. After this, Alexa users will be able to access Cortana, and vice versa on a range of devices, although the first step in this integration is rather clunky. Amazon Echo users have to say, “Alexa, open Cortana,” while Microsoft users have to say, “Cortana, open Alexa.” It appears that both companies have simply created skills on each others platforms to enable the basic integration.

T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger deal could close in October

Uncategorized September 22, 2017

t-mobile-sprint-merger-ideal-classifieds T-Mobile and Sprint’s merger talks after a long on-again, off-again may be nearing a conclusion. According to Reuters reports that the two companies are now “close” to reach “tentative terms” on merger and could announce a deal by the end of October. The merger would reportedly give T-Mobile’s owner, Deutsche Telekom, a majority stake in the merged company, while Sprint’s owner, SoftBank, would have somewhere between 40 and 50 percent. T-Mobile CEO John Legere would lead the combined company, according to Reuters. Merger terms are very different from what SoftBank had envisioned when it first proposed a merger several years ago. At the time, T-Mobile was struggling, and Sprint was looking at absorbing the then-tinier carrier. In the years since, however, T-Mobile has revitalized its business with aggressive promotions that undercut Verizon and AT&T, and moved up above Sprint, which is now the carrier desperate for attention.
