IntelliJ IDEA: Structural Search & Replace IntelliJ IDEA: Structural Search & Replace

Современные IDE — очень мощные инструменты, способные помогать разработчику в самых разных ситуациях. Но обратной стороной этой мощности является то, что большинство функций находится в тени — об их наличии мало кто подозревает. Простой пример одной такой функции

А вы знаете, что, если в IDEA нажать F2, курсор перескочит к ближайшей ошибке в файле? А если нет ошибки, то к замечанию? Как-то так получается, что об этом знают далеко не все. Одной такой функцией является Structural Search & Replace (SSR). Она может быть невероятно полезна в тех ситуациях, когда пасует всё богатое разнообразие других функций.

Несколько таких примеров я и приведу в данной статье. И чтобы не ограничиваться суррога…

В 2013 я пришел в Mail.ru Group, и я решал задачу, в которой мне нужна была очередь. Есть много разных инструментов для построения очередей, но я решил для начала узнать, что уже имеется в компании. Услышал, что есть такой продукт — Tarantool. Узнал, как он устроен, и мне показалось, что в него отлично может быть встроен брокер очередей. Я пошёл к главному по Tarantool — Косте Осипову — и постарался объяснить, что я хочу получить. Предполагалось, что код очереди будет написан на C, как и остальной код Tarantool, но… На следующий день Костя дал мне скрипт на 250 строк, который реализовывал почти всё, что я хотел.

С того момента я влюбился в Tarantool. Оказалось, что можно написать совсем нем…

В качестве VPN я выбрал SoftEther: он настолько же прост в настройке как и RRAS и такой же быстрый. На стороне VPN сервера включил Secure NAT, других настроек не проводилось. В качестве альтернативы рассматривал RRAS, но Mikrotik не умеет с ним работать. Соединение устанавливается, VPN работает, но поддерживать соединение без постоянных реконнектов и ошибок в логе Mikrotik не умеет.

Об этом сообщает «РИА Новости» со ссылкой на управляющего директора по развитию электронных платформ Московской биржи Игоря Алутина.

Госдума в четверг приняла во втором и третьем чтении два закона о финансовых маркетплейсах, которые позволят россиянам дистанционно сравнивать и приобретать услуги банков, управляющих и страховых компаний.

По словам Алутина, на первом этапе клиентам маркетплейса будут доступны банковские вклады.

Если вы живете в районе Лос-Анджелеса, у Илона Маска есть для вас решение — это частная школа Ad Astra.

Ad Astra открылась в кампусе SpaceX в Хоторне в 2014 году — вскоре после того, как Маск забрал своих пятерых сыновей из школы Mirman для одаренных детей.

Практически все в Ad Astra устроено необычно — от оценок (которые полностью отсутствуют) до секретности, которая окружает процесс приема в школу.

В Ad Astra принимают детей в возрасте от 8 до 13 лет.

В Ad Astra есть недостатки: например, неизвестно, продолжит ли он развивать школу, когда его дети завершат обучение.

Глава «Татнефти» Наиль Маганов дал прогноз по нефти в интервью на телеканале «Россия 24».

Нефтяная компания также допускает падение цены на нефть до $10-15 за баррель и готова конкурировать на таких низких уровнях.

«И так постепенно по мере возрастания спроса, по мере того, как будут ликвидироваться те сверхнормтаивные запасы, которые были созданы в период вот этого глубокого падения, мы будем возобновлять наше производство», — рассказал глава «Татнефти».

20 апреля цена на нефть впервые была отрицательной.

По мере снятия ограничений спрос и цена на нефть восстанавливаются.

Много пассионарных и умных людей несколько лет находятся в постоянном взаимодействии: это и сами студенты, и молодые учёные, и преподаватели.

Как мы запустили новый формат защиты дипломов в РАНХиГССейчас каждый вуз вынужден сам думать, как внедрить такой формат, какие внутренние документы нужно принять, в какие внести изменения и что в них учесть.

Она требует нагрузки и на административный персонал, и на преподавателей, на поиск новых научных руководителей.

Например, если там не поставлена теоретическая рамка и не используются научные статьи.

Третья проблема — это популяризация программы «Стартап как диплом» внутри вуза как среди студентов, так и среди преподавателей.

Вместо использования накладок на камеру компания предлагает ориентироваться на зеленый индикатор камеры, чтобы определить, работает ли камера.

Такие накладки на камеры пользователи устанавливают в качестве меры безопасности, чтобы подстраховаться от случайных срабатываний, а также шпионажа со стороны злоумышленников.

Для международного рынка Xiaomi представит Mi Band 5 только на следующей неделе, хотя новый браслет уже начал появляться у европейских онлайн-ритейлеров.

Умные браслеты Xiaomi с самого начала пользовались успехом и со временем спрос на них только растёт.

Оригинальный Mi Band был распродан миллионным тиражом за девять месяцев, Mi Band 2 в 2016 году преодолел миллионный рубеж всего за два месяца, Mi Band 3 достиг этой отметки за 17 дней, а у Mi Band 4 на такое же достижение ушло всего 8 дней.

Он взял от стиральной машины вентильный электродвигатель мощностью 1100 Вт и подсоединил его к велосипеду.

В отличие от большинства электровелосипедов, которые лишь помогают вам крутить педали, Spin Cycle больше похож на электромопед, где педали играют второстепенную роль.

Пока многострадальный Pixel 4a всё никак не выйдет, в Сети появились новые подробности на счёт смартфонов Google, и они весьма занятные.

И среди всего этого наиболее интересно одно — Pixel 4a 5G с кодовым именем Bramble.

Но ранее считалось, что это будет Pixel 4a XL, который в итоге якобы отменили, хотя теперь можно предположить, что его и не было.

То есть Google готовит обычный Pixel 4a с SoC Snadpragon 730 и более дорогой Pixel 4a 5G с SoC Snapdragon 765G.

В итоге получится занятная ситуация: и относительно доступный Pixel 4a 5G, и явно намного более дорогой Pixel 5 будут основаны на одной и той же платформе.

На это указывает обнаруженный недавно патент компании.

Согласно приведённому описанию и иллюстрации в патенте, поддержка игр для PS1, PS2 и PS3 может быть реализована на PlayStation 5 с помощью облачного сервиса.

Sony заявила для PlayStation 5 совместимость с «большинством игр» под PS4, но ничего не упомянула про более ранние версии приставок.

Для используемых в ядре идентификаторов предлагается отказаться от использования слов 'slave' и 'blacklist', вместо которых рекомендуется применять слова secondary, subordinate, replica, responder, follower, proxy и performer. Blacklist рекомендовано заменять на blocklist или denylist.

A Typology of Dumplings (2019)

A Typology of Dumplings Carl (Calle) BörstellSometimes you’re bored on a Friday night.

Sometimes you think of (or, better yet, eat) dumplings on a Friday night.

At this point, I thought what if I just look up some dumplings on Wikipedia, and code some of the specific features for each one?

I mean, this was after all just a random Friday night and I was already past my bed time…In the end, I collected data from 61 different dumplings.

Beyond the dumplings sampled according to the above criteria, I also included a few items not traditionally seen as dumplings, because I wanted to see how they patterned with the dumplings proper.

Apple supplier Foxconn to invest $1B in India, sources say

NEW DELHI/TAIPEI (Reuters) - Foxconn (2317.TW) plans to invest up to $1 billion to expand a factory in southern India where the Taiwanese contract manufacturer assembles Apple (AAPL.O) iPhones, two sources said.

Foxconn said it does not comment on matters related to customers, while Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

Foxconn Chairman Liu Young-way last month said it would ramp up its investment in India, without giving details.

Building more phones in India will also help Apple save on import taxes that further push up its prices.

Wistron is also set to open a new plant, where it plans to make more Apple devices, Reuters previously reported.

By Torio Risianto, Bhargavi Reddy, Tanvi Sahni, Andrew ParkBackground on data efficiencyAt Netflix, we invest heavily in our data infrastructure which is composed of dozens of data platforms, hundreds of data producers and consumers, and petabytes of data.

Netflix’s data platform landscapeNetflix’s data platforms can be broadly classified as data at rest and data in motion systems.

Data at rest stores such as S3 Data Warehouse, Cassandra, Elasticsearch, etc.

We then translate storage bytes per data resource to cost based on S3 storage prices from AWS billing data.

To that regard, we invested in email push notifications to increase data cost awareness among teams with significant data usage.

People like Chomsky, Steinem, and even Pinker came of age during the sixties liberation movements, which shaped academia and popular culture for generations.

Long before the term “intersectionality” was coined in 1989, post-sixties liberals understood the interlocking nature of political and intellectual repression.

The question isn’t whether or not “cancel culture” exists.

The question is, without canceling, what would this culture be?

That is: the question of whether SARS-CoV-2 lingers in the air is a topic of active discussion and, while it may be possible in some settings, the data in aerosol transmission so far is inconclusive or unconvincing.

CERN has discovered a very charming particle CERN has discovered a very charming particle

Now, CERN has announced a new addition to growing family of tetraquarks, a collection two charm quarks and two anti-charm quarks.

Charm quarks are from the middle generation of quarks; charm and strange are heavier than up or down but far lighter than top or bottom.

And these we know very well as the J/ψ particle.

Since we know how J/ψ particles decay, we can simply look for pairs of decays coming out of a single proton-proton collision.

We don't know if it's simply two J/ψ particles in tight association or whether there's a single particle composed of four charm quarks.

When the 2021 S-Class debuts in September, the brand's flagship sedan will offer an AR HUD, among other tech upgrades.

It uses a digital mirror device from Texas Instruments—perhaps no surprise given that TI has been developing automotive AR tech for a while now.

The augmented reality head-up display (AR-HUD) of the new #SClass provides loads of #augmentedreality content for #drivingassistance systems and navigation information.

That tech was considered unworkable a few years ago, and early practical demos of AR driver assists used goggles instead.

Facial recognition tech was used in Oliver’s case before new rules came into force.

Wayne County’s top persecutor will also review all facial recognition cases when an assistant prosecuting attorney and supervisor agree that charges should be laid.

Several cities, including Boston and San Francisco, have banned or limited the use of facial recognition.

IBM says it’ll no longer develop “general purpose” facial recognition due to human rights concerns.

Amazon has paused police use of Rekognition, while Microsoft won’t sell its facial recognition tech to police departments until there are federal rules “grounded in human rights.”

Amazon's 'New World' MMO is delayed again
Amazon's 'New World' MMO is delayed again Amazon's 'New World' MMO is delayed again

Amazon is once delaying its upcoming colonial online RPG New World (via PCGamer).

The company's Amazon Games studio says it now plans to release the game sometime in the spring of 2021.

It's also delaying the title's final beta test to that same time frame.

The decision comes on the back of player feedback, with Amazon Games studio director Rich Lawrence saying the developer wants to spend the extra time adding more mid and endgame content to the title.

"We want our players to feel completely immersed in the game, and know that our studio stands for quality and lasting gameplay you can trust -- and that means added time to get things where we want them before we fully release," he said.

Getting help on your school work can be tough under normal circumstances and it won't be any easier if you're attending Zoom classes.

If you need assistance on an assignment or a general topic you're studying, reach out to your teacher or professor as soon as you think you might need help.

Facebook may pause political ads prior to the 2020 election
Facebook may pause political ads prior to the 2020 election Facebook may pause political ads prior to the 2020 election

Facebook could make a major change to its advertising policies in an effort to fight election-related misinformation.

The social network is considering a ban on political advertising in the U.S. in the days before the 2020 election, Bloomberg reports.

Unlike Twitter, which banned political ads entirely last year, Facebook’s plan would only limit ads for a few days.

The proposed policy would create a “blackout” period that would bar political ads from the platform in the lead-up to Election Day, according to Bloomberg.

Many countries, including the U.K, have laws that bar political ads on election day or in the days immediately before.

The Echo Plus levels-up the standard Echo by including a Zigee home hub inside of it.

That means you don’t need to buy any extra connecting hubs when you purchase other IoT devices like light bulbs, door locks, security cameras and others.

The Philips Hue light bulb that comes in the Echo Plus bundle, which normally costs $30 on its own, can connected directly to the smart speaker.

The Echo Plus also improves on the original Echo’s sound quality — that’s one of the reasons why we gave it a score of 86.

Among the other Echo devices on sale, the Echo Show 5 for $60 and the Echo Show 8 for $90 are decent sales.

That starts with banning facial recognition, a technology perfectly designed for the automation of racism.

Numerous studies have shown that facial recognition algorithms exhibit systemic racial and gender bias.

To be blunt, facial recognition software thinks all Black people look the same.

(Though the company has placed a moratorium on police use of its facial recognition technology, it’s difficult to see this as anything other than a publicity stunt.)

Facial recognition is the tool that allows police to weaponize those surveillance cameras.

Last weekend was the Fourth of July, a cause for socially distanced picnics and (even more) fireworks (than usual).

Hamilton, a musical that debuted at the Public Theater in New York in 2015, shouldn’t be such a topic of conversation five years later.

It was a phenomenon when it premiered, but in the intervening years it has been analyzed and think-pieced ad infinitum.

It also called into question the legacy of Alexander Hamilton himself, and the liberties Miranda took with history.

I study history.”The reexamination of Hamilton is instructive of two things: One, that art can, and should, always be subject to re-examination and criticism.

How a ‘Heat Dome’ Forms—and Why This One Is So Perilous
How a ‘Heat Dome’ Forms—and Why This One Is So Perilous How a ‘Heat Dome’ Forms—and Why This One Is So Perilous

Above our heads, a “heat dome” of high pressure could blast 80 percent of the continental US with temperatures over 90 degrees for the next few weeks.

But as the heat dome persists, it blasts away the soil’s moisture, and that solar energy now goes full-tilt into heating the air.

“And so those super dry land surfaces are going to amplify the heat and the persistence of this heat dome,” says Swain.

This won’t be the last heat dome, or the most severe one.

And thanks to climate change, those air temperatures will be hotter even before a heat dome arrives.

The workings of the IB diploma—and the timing of the results—proved particularly harmful for IB students applying to US colleges.

Unlike AP tests, which are typically separate from high school grades, the IB results are intended to reflect a student’s work for the year.

IB students are often granted college admission based on predicted grades, and they submit their final results when they become available over the summer.

Some colleges, including NYU and Northeastern, warn on their admissions pages that students whose IB results don’t get close enough to those predictions may lose their place.

In March, IB canceled all tests and said it would calculate each student’s final grades using a me…

Percival Lowell wasn’t the first to think he’d discovered life on Mars, but he was among the last.

On July 30, NASA is expected to launch its new rover, Perseverance, on a one-way journey to Mars.

The car-sized robotic geologist will spend its first year on the planet drilling core samples in search of signs of ancient life.

If Perseverance discovers life on Mars, it will be less like encountering a stranger in the woods and more like discovering their footprints.

When she’s not hunting for ancient life on other planets, Bosak studies the earliest life on our own, a process she says is analogous to what Perseverance will be doing on Mars.

The last-minute Facebook political ad ban could end up suppressing votes The last-minute Facebook political ad ban could end up suppressing votes

On Friday, Bloomberg reported that Facebook is considering a blackout of political ads in the "days" before the November 2020 election.

Facebook has come under fire for refusing to fact check political ads, and for not doing enough to counter misinformation in the lead up to the election.

Floating the idea of a temporary, last-minute ad blackout could be one way to move the conversation forward.

However, Democrats say banning political ads — particularly in the crucial days before the election — is not the right way to address the platform's many problems.

To much fanfare, Facebook announced a massive get-out-the-vote effort in June, and has specifically banned posts that constitute voter s…

Let's say it together: Facial-recognition technology is a dangerous, biased mess.

We are reminded of this obvious fact again with the news Friday that an innocent man, despite not looking like the perpetrator at all, was arrested last year after being falsely identified by faulty facial-recognition tech.

This is the second known case of facial recognition software directly leading to the arrest of an innocent man.

Dan Korobkin, legal director of the ACLU of Michigan, released a statement condemning both the arrest and Detroit police's use of facial-recognition technology.

Late last month we learned that Detroit police arrested a (yes) Black man by the name of Robert Julian-Borchak Williams …

Singer Hildegard von Blingin', a YouTuber who covers pop songs in the style of a medieval bard, covered Dolly Parton's haunting love song with some lyrical twists.

Sure Jolene was doing Dolly dirty, but to do all that in the midst of a plague, the crusades, and feudal oppression?

Hildegard von Blingin's other medieval bangers include Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie," Radiohead's "Creep," and Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance."

iPhone users blame Apple Music for quickly draining battery iPhone users blame Apple Music for quickly draining battery

Having your iPhone battery drain by over 50 percent in 24 hours with minimal use is not normal, but it seems to be happening to a growing number of iPhone owners over the past week.

The Apple Music app is reportedly the culprit—more specifically, the background activity of the app even when it's not in use.

Even if you've never used the Music app, background activity can apparently appear for it on your phone and last several hours.

Although users think the Music app is to blame, comments on the MacRumors article suggest there's a wider problem regarding background activity in iOS.

In other words, this isn't an Apple Music problem but a more general iOS background activity problem.

We knew a 5G variant of Samsung’s vertically folding Galaxy Z Flip clamshell was on the way, after the first images leaked earlier this month.

Now, we have an entire leaked video and a set of rumors about the new “Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G” that seems to leave nothing to the imagination — and suggest it might be ready for Samsung’s upcoming August 5th Galaxy Unpacked event.

Basically, it looks like it’ll be practically the same folding phone but with a faster processor and 5G.

So for the Z Flip 5G, the ONLY part that changes is the SoC.

While 5G might be the flagship feature here, 5G phones still have a ways to go before they are the new normal.

It was a tidy solution to generating content, especially as social media took off.

Opinions were written quickly about whatever the writer had seen on social media the other day.

In some ways, the fall of the opinion class mirrors the rise of the democratized, secular press at the expense of the church.

Does this rule also apply to prominent figures who have been either formally or informally designated as representatives of public opinion?

But this general incoherence about the problem of “cancel culture” isn’t entirely the fault of the anti-woke commentariat.

At the meeting, shareholders are slated to vote and voice opinions on a number of matters, like whether the company should start paying for traditional advertisement.

The battery day event was originally supposed to take place earlier this year, but was also delayed because of the pandemic.

Amazon has delayed its upcoming open-world MMO New World, one of two tentpole games from its burgeoning games studio, from August 25th to an undefined spring 2021 date.

The announcement comes less than two weeks after Amazon brought its other tentpole game, the free-to-play shooter Crucible, back into closed beta following barely a month of wide availability.

It sounds like Amazon may be taking a more cautious approach to game development after early feedback from testers that the games weren’t quite what they hoped.

But in early June, Amazon pulled two of the game’s three modes, leaving only its MOBA-inspired mode, and then returned the released game to closed beta on July 1st to make more…

Facebook is reportedly considering a ban on political ads before the US elections this year.

Bloomberg reported the news this afternoon, saying that the idea is being discussed internally but is not yet a firm policy.

Facebook has previously allowed users to “turn off” political ads and added disclosure requirements, and it’s attempting to provide reliable information with a voting hub.

But it’s stopped short of banning the ads themselves, in contrast with its rival Twitter, which announced a political ad ban last year.

However, a ban would also protect Facebook from bad publicity from inflammatory ads — like a Trump ad that it removed due to Nazi imagery.

A single tracking pixel is embedded into the email, usually (but not always) hidden within an image or a link.

When the email is opened, code within the pixel sends the info back to the company’s server.

Who does a Twitter subscription platform appeal to?

Never mind that the listings offer no concrete details about the mythical Twitter subscription platform.

Many Twitter users claim they would gladly pay Twitter if they could skip the cesspool part.

A user without a Twitter subscription can’t have a more toxic experience simply because they don’t want to, or cannot, subscribe.

After all, a Twitter subscription platform is not a fresh idea.

Facebook’s AI separates speech in recordings of up to 5 people
Facebook’s AI separates speech in recordings of up to 5 people Facebook’s AI separates speech in recordings of up to 5 people

Separating speech from conversations is a crucial step toward improving communication across a range of applications, like voice messaging and video tools.

Beyond this, speech separation techniques like those proposed by researchers can be applied to the problem of background noise suppression, for example in recordings of musical instruments.

A voice separation network then transforms these representations into an estimated audio signal for each speaker.

This “encoder” model needs foreknowledge of the total number of speakers, but a subsystem can automatically detect the speakers and select the speech model accordingly.

The coauthors claimed that approach requires only single-channel (e.g.…

Valve remained small at just a few hundred people, but it hasn’t shipped a major Half-Life game since Half-Life 2: Episode Two appeared in 2007.

Keighley said that Half-Life: Alyx made it out the door, but it was Valve’s sixth attempt to do something with the Half-Life property since 13 years ago.

He said that Half-Life: Alyx is ambitious but is also “bordering on absurd” because the audience is so limited.

That turned out to be Half-Life: Alyx, a limited-scope VR project set in the Half-Life universe.

In January 2019, the Alyx team had reached its peak of 80 people, compared to four in February 2016.

Getty Images/iStockphotoA British security researcher has proven this week that it is still possible in 2020 to create older-generation magnetic stripe (magstripe) cards using details found on modern chip-and-PIN (EMV) and contactless cards, and then use the cloned cards for fraudulent transactions.

EMV cards were designed to be hard to clone, primarily due to the secure chip included with each one.

However, Galloway's whitepaper explains in a step-by-step guide on how to take data from an EMV card and create an older-generation magnetic stripe clone.

This technique -- of cloning a magstripe version from an EMV card -- is not new and has been documented as far back as 2007.

Rackspace is making a return to the public market.

The company announced Friday that it has filed a registration statement with the US Securities and Exchange Commission for a proposed Initial Public Offering of its common stock.

The company intends to list under the ticker symbol "RXT" on the NASDAQ.

Rackspace left the public market in 2016 following a $4.3 billion deal with the private equity firm Apollo Global Management.

The company started as a hosting firm known for customer service, helped launch OpenStack, briefly tried to compete with public cloud giants and then retooled under a series of management changes.

Apparently, there are still some other issues, which is resulting in Microsoft continuing to block the 2004 update on certain Surface devices, including Surface Pro 7, and Surface Laptop 3.

Microsoft officials are not commenting on what "other safeguards" still are keeping Surface users from being able to install the Windows 10 2004 update.

Also, it's not just Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7 that are being blocked.

But since then, devices like the Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3 have remained blocked.

Will that be the magical date when Microsoft unblocks the 2004 update for Surface devices?

Two security researchers said this week that they found severe vulnerabilities and what appears to be intentional backdoors in the firmware of 29 FTTH OLT devices from popular vendor C-Data.

The term FTTH OLT refers to networking equipment that allows internet service providers to bring fiber optics cables as close to the end-users as possible.

The accounts allow attackers to connect to the device via a Telnet server running on the device's WAN (internet-side) interface.

The fourth bug was discovered in the same Telnet server running on the WAN interface.

LinkedIn sued after being caught reading users’ clipboards on iOS 14 LinkedIn sued after being caught reading users’ clipboards on iOS 14

LinkedIn was recently caught reading users’ clipboards on iPhone and iPad thanks to the new privacy features of iOS 14, as we reported last week.

Even though the company claimed it was due a software bug, there’s now an iPhone user who’s suing LinkedIn for supposedly reading sensitive content from the clipboard without permission.

The class-action lawsuit lawsuit classifies the problem as an alleged violation of the law or social norms under California laws.

LinkedIn hasn’t commented on the situation yet, but the company said a few days ago that the iOS app wasn’t intentionally reading the users’ clipboard, but due to a software bug.

We’re yet to know if the court will accept the user’s app…

Apple has some ambitious plans in India, as the company has already confirmed that it will open the first Apple Store there by 2021.

And now Foxconn is allegedly investing $1 billion in its India facility, where the Taiwanese factory already assembles some iPhone models.

The expansion plan is expected to be finished in three years, and it will allow other iPhone models to be made in India.

The country has high import taxes, which makes Apple’s product prices too high when compared to the competition.

If the plans succeed, Apple might use Foxconn facilities in India to export iPhone models to other countries.

Apple’s Tim Cook is the 2nd highest-paid US CEO in 2019 Apple’s Tim Cook is the 2nd highest-paid US CEO in 2019

Even though Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has a relatively small salary, bonuses and large stock awards launched him to being the second-highest-paid CEO after Tesla’s Elon Musk.

Bloomberg‘s data shows that Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk handily earned the most of any US executive in 2019 thanks to options vesting.

That number two spot, held by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was earned with an annual income of $133.7 million.

We first learned about Cook’s 2019 compensation back in January as Apple released the data but today’s report from Bloomberg is an interesting comparison against all US CEOs.

Additionally, the report includes new details on the thickness of the lenses, integrated technology, and more.

The report is careful to note that the lenses are for Apple’s upcoming “AR devices” meaning it’s unclear if they will be for the AR headset that’s expected to launch first (likely in 2022) or the eventual AR Apple Glasses that could arrive by 2023.

iOS apps crashing on opening – here’s a fix
iOS apps crashing on opening – here’s a fix iOS apps crashing on opening – here’s a fix

We noted earlier that we’re again seeing a number of iOS apps crashing as soon as they open, thanks to a bug in the Facebook SDK.

Even if you don’t have the Facebook app installed, apps which use this SDK access it when they open, and then promptly crash.

Fortunately, there is an easy fix for now …The secret is to block apps from accessing the Facebook domain.

Lockdown Apps, a firewall and privacy protection app on iOS, uses a VPN to block trackers and things like Facebook’s iOS SDK from loading in third-party apps.

It will allow apps like Spotify, Pinterest, and Tinder to launch during a Facebook iOS SDK outage, and it’s completely free to use.

For the second time this year, the Facebook SDK is causing apps like TikTok and Spotify to crash on launch For the second time this year, the Facebook SDK is causing apps like TikTok and Spotify to crash on launch

In almost the exact same circumstances as we saw in May, a bug in the Facebook SDK is once again causing major third-party iOS apps like TikTok and Spotify to crash on launch.

Third-party apps integrate with the Facebook SDK to enable things like account login, analytics, and ads platform integration.

Any issue that crops up in the logic of the underlying Facebook SDK will reflect in any apps that use it.

Just like the May situation, improper handling of unexpected invalid data on Facebook part is resulting in the crashes.

The Facebook SDK is very popular and widely used in the iOS app ecosystem, which exacerbates the issue dramatically.

A number of popular apps such as Spotify and Tinder experienced outages on Friday because of what Facebook Inc. said was a bug in its software for iPhone users.

The issue relates to Facebook’s software development kit, or SDK, which many developers embed into their apps to allow people to use certain services connected to Facebook.

Some apps, such as Spotify, allow users to log into their services using Facebook accounts.

And a good bit of help from the kids.

Market research firms Gartner and IDC reported second-quarter PC sales data on Thursday, and this time there was quite a spread in the numbers.

IDC reported nearly 72.3 million PC units shipped globally in the quarter—a jump of 11.2% from the same period last year.

Gartner reported PC shipments of 64.8 million units, up just 2.8%.

A type of digital currency that aims to maintain a stable value relative to that of an underlying asset or benchmark has the potential for mass adoption, but that potential also makes it more vulnerable to criminal abuse, a global standard setter for anti-money-laundering laws said.

The Financial Action Task Force, in a report to the G-20 finance ministers, identified illicit finance vulnerabilities specifically with so-called stablecoins and said risks should be analyzed and mitigated before such digital currencies are launched, particularly if they have the potential for mass adoption.

Tesla Inc.’s strong performance during the pandemic has sent its stock soaring, dealing a blow to investors betting against the Silicon Valley auto maker.

Twitter shares soared as much as 12% on Wednesday after a job posting surfaced suggesting the company is building a subscription platform.

Amid the growing threat of politically-driven ad boycotts in the industry, investors were quick to fall in love with the idea that Twitter might be working to differentiate its business model.

Last year, about 87% of the company’s revenue came from advertising.

Twitter hardly seems married to the idea, though.

The U.S. government participated in discussions about the cybersecurity regulation, but didn’t vote.

The U.S. is party to a different U.N. agreement on road transportation rules, but not one that allows members to pass regulations such as the new cybersecurity rules.

Car manufacturers will likely review procurement agreements to make sure companies in their supply chain follow the new cybersecurity regulation, said Mr. Scherf at McKinsey.

Chicago Connected will begin contacting households that can benefit from the program this week before supplying wired broadband connections through RCN Corp. and Comcast Corp.

In New York City, for instance, around 40% of households don’t have both home and mobile broadband access, and 18% lack either, according to a digital equity plan released in January by the Mayor’s office.

In addition to giving young people a place to meet and entertain each other, TikTok has also been a platform for political and social justice issues.

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook is considering banning political advertising across its network before the November general election, according to two people with knowledge of the discussions, in what would be a stark change to the social network’s practices.

The decision has not been finalized yet, said the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential, and the company could continue with its current political advertising policy.

A Facebook spokesman declined to comment.

For months, Facebook has allowed politicians, lobbyist groups and political parties to run issue and policy ads across the network virtually unchecked, even if those ads contained falsehood…

Facebook on Wednesday said it was removing the personal accounts of Roger J.

Stone Jr., President Trump’s friend and ally, because they had ties to numerous fake accounts that were active around the 2016 presidential election.

Mr. Stone’s personal accounts on Facebook and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, were entwined with the U.S.-based network that had links to the Proud Boys, a group that promotes white supremacy, the company said.

The social network banned the Proud Boys group in 2018.

Millions of young Americans have begun investing in recent years through Robinhood, which was founded in 2013 with a sales pitch of no trading fees or account minimums.

The ease of trading has turned it into a cultural phenomenon and a Silicon Valley darling, with the start-up climbing to an $8.3 billion valuation.

It has been one of the tech industry’s biggest growth stories in the recent market turmoil.

And the more that customers engaged in such behavior, the better it was for the company, the data shows.

They also bought and sold 88 times as many risky options contracts as Schwab customers, relative to the average account size, according to the analysis.

This is the kind of advantage the tech superpowers have that is hard for governments to break apart or for rivals to compete with.

The tech giants’ fingerprints, brain power and dollars are all over the invisible backbone of the global internet.

In April, Norway released a smartphone app, Smittestopp or “stop infection,” that records users who come into close contact for more than 15 minutes and sends alerts if they have been exposed to the coronavirus.

“We can all help stop the spread of infection and save lives,” Prime Minister Erna Solberg said in a statement at the time.

“If many people download the Smittestopp app, we can open up society more and get our freedom back.”Within two weeks, nearly 900,000 people — or about one out of five Norwegians older than 16 — had started using the app.

But by mid-June, the government had temporarily turned off the service after data protection regulators there said Norway had so few coronavir…

How to have a fashion show during a pandemic is one of the immediate questions facing designers this week, as what would have been the couture runway season is replaced with three days of digital mini-films.

A pioneer of the form suggests the answer might not be no.

“Everyone knows her,” said Anifa Mvuemba, the founder of Hanifa, who debuted a clothing collection in May called Pink Label Congo with a digitally rendered model called Imani.

Imani is a graceful and curvaceous avatar, though her form was known at the brand’s recent digital runway show, on May 22, solely by the movements of the clothes.

The effect was to see garments, with designs based on African sewing techniques and tradition…

For decades, the entertainment industry has relied on the ratings giant to measure the value of everything from “All in the Family” to “Young Sheldon.”But how do you prove a show’s worth in the age of streaming?

A little-known start-up, Parrot Analytics, says it has come up with a metric that can measure what a program means to a streamer like Netflix.

From there, Parrot says, it can anticipate what matters most to a streaming network: how many subscribers a show is likely to attract.

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook has not done enough to fight discrimination on its platform and has made some decisions that were “significant setbacks for civil rights,” according to a new independent audit of the company’s policies and practices.

In some decisions, Facebook did not seek civil rights expertise, the auditors said, potentially setting a “terrible” precedent that could affect the November general election and other speech issues.

“Many in the civil rights community have become disheartened, frustrated and angry after years of engagement where they implored the company to do more to advance equality and fight discrimination, while also safeguarding free expression,” wrote the auditor…

But that lack of knowledge meant that NASA did not fully understand how Boeing was designing the Starliner’s software and the testing process for verifying that it would work as intended.

NASA is now overseeing software development more closely at both SpaceX and Boeing.

The Starliner spacecraft, launched on top of an Atlas 5 rocket on Dec. 20, encountered two major software problems during its flight.

That caused the spacecraft to squander its propellant, and a planned docking at the International Space Station was called off.

As Boeing engineers hastily combed through the Starliner software in the aftermath of the clock problem, they found that problem and fixed it.

Virtual races weren’t supposed to be the most exciting competition for runners in the summer of 2020.

But with the coronavirus pandemic making large-scale gatherings difficult, runners are turning to technology as they search for ways to train, stay connected with teammates and compete.

Some have kept it simple, logging workouts and training plans in shareable Google documents or spreadsheets to stay in touch with their coaches.

Other runners are using popular social fitness apps like MapMyRun and Strava, which saw a record 3.4 million downloads in May.
