Microsoft has presented Surface 3

The rumors of a new tablet from the Surface family have been circulating in the network for weeks, which is getting better and better every year. This moment has just arrived and Microsoft has unveiled Surface 4 with Windows and many useful applications.

The early Surface tablets were not very successful mainly due to poor technical specifications and poor Windows RT. Microsoft, however, was quick to learn from its mistakes, and more models were already refined, and the operating system also changed.

Now the company has announced the latest generation of its product, Surface 3, which already includes Windows 8.1, many well-known applications from personal computers, and one year subscription to Office 365. We will even offer a model with 4G LTE connectivity, which will greatly increase the functionality of the device.

Surface 3 is made from the same high quality materials as the Surface Pro 3. The device is only 8.7 mm thick and weighs 0.62 kg. In this thin case, a 10.8-inch touch screen display has a 3: 2 aspect ratio, and on the other side there is a stand that allows it to be placed in a comfortable position that can be retracted when it is no longer needed.

The tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x7 processor, one of the most powerful Atom available in the market. However, the manufacturer does not disclose the amount of RAM, as well as the usable memory.

However, the specification of the devices installed in the device was given. The rear has a resolution of 8 megapixels and autofocus while the front 3.5 megapixels. Both allow you to record movies at 1080p resolution. The product also has a 13W charger that will charge the battery much faster, but of course you will also be able to use a standard charger for your phone. The device also has a USB 3.0 port, microSD card slot and Mini DisplayPort input.

Surface 3 runs on a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1, and for business clients it has Windows Pro. Of course, it will also be possible to upgrade to Windows 10 when it becomes available. The use of a standard operating system enabled the use of popular applications for work, learning, and entertainment, as it will also be able to run computer games.

Google will pay 3 billion euros fine?

The end of the European Commission investigation into antitrust violations initiated by Google has been launched a few years ago. The leaks show that the decision on this issue will be announced before the holiday, and the US giant will have to pay about 3 billion euros of fines.

Google has for years been accused of abusing its market position in the online industry and breaking antitrust laws. The company was accused of manipulating search results in its search engine and favoring its products at the expense of competition and many other activities that did not comply with current regulations.

A few years ago the European Commission took up the matter. As a result of the leaks, the committee’s decision, which will be announced before the summer holidays, will impose a € 3 billion fine on the company. This is a much higher amount than imposed on Intel for some time, which had to pay 1.1 billion euros for antitrust infringement. It is, however, significantly lower than the maximum legal fine of € 6.6 billion, or 10 percent of the company’s annual revenue.

However, this may not stop. Margarethe Vestager, Competition contends that the list of charges against Google may be extended to mapping services and information search for travel agencies, as allegedly also in those areas the company was to commit fraudulent practices.

The commission’s decision will be announced early next month.

32 GB of memory in the Surface due to windows

We have already seen the official pricing for each version of the new Microsoft tablet and probably many of you are curious why there is no version with 16 GB of usable memory. The answer to this question is very simple.

The reason for the lack of a 16 GB version of Surface is the operating system. Windows RT along with Office, takes up as much as 12 times more space than competitive iOS. Translating this to numbers tells us that the system needs as much as 12 GB of space and this is an official message, confirmed by hardware designers.

So, you can see that the 16GB version of the tablet would not be racist, since the user would have left at most 4 GB. That’s why the cheapest version of the tablet is a 32GB version, costing $ 499, which is a variant of the Touch Cover.

In the 32GB variant of the tablet, the user will have 20 GB of free space available, as the rest will be used for the entire mass of applications offered by the new operating system. Apple solved this issue a little better and on its 16 GB iPad, as much as 14 GB of memory is available to the user.

But we are more interested in whether all of these applications will be useful enough to encourage the consumer to purchase a new device.

IPhone 6 bends into your pocket

Apple’s pursuit of slimming smartphones from the iPhone family has its consequences. The first iPhone 6 buyer claims that the device is so thin that inserting it into the pocket of tight jeans ends with a bent casing.

If you are already making money to buy the latest Apple smartphone, think again. There are complaints from users that the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, after being worn short in a pocket of tight jeans, simply bent.

Complaints are photosynthesis confirming that the problem actually takes place and is really serious. The aluminum used to build this smartphone is very soft metal. On the scale of Mohs hardness is only 2.5 points, so like gold and copper. The more manufacturers slim the housing, the more it affects the integrity of the metal, which results in just such an effect.

The worst part is that you really do not need a lot of power to bend the iPhone 6 cover and as shown below, you can do this with your bare hands. Moreover, there is no way to fix this situation, as it simply follows from the design of the device.

NSA employee responsible for leaking hacking tools

US authorities are still investigating the leak of NSA hacking tools. They hit the hands of a hacker group called Shadow Brokers, which then placed them on the network. It is unofficially mentioned that one of the agency’s employees may be responsible for the leak.

A few years ago, Edward Snowden unveiled all the secrets of the NSA, also describing hacking tools that allow agency employees to break into computers to retrieve data. One of these tools leaked to the network after it had hit Shadow Brokers.

Government authorities investigating leakage have now focused on the theory that one of NSA employees is responsible for it. Three years ago, the agent used them on a remote computer and probably caused them to fall into the hands of Russian hackers.

These tools allow the user to exploit vulnerabilities in the system software to access the computer.They can be used to attack multiple devices, including routers and Cisco routers, putting customers at risk of losing data.

Reuters revealed that after the NSA discovered theft of the tools, she checked only whether they were using Russia or China. When no suspicious activity was detected, the matter was swept under the carpet. The agency did not even bother to tell companies that hackers could exploit vulnerabilities in their systems.

Apple sued by a patent troll

Patents, which were originally intended to protect the economic rights of the inventor, have increasingly become a way of earning a living. It is enough to purchase several patented technology patents and claim compensation from the companies that use them.

This is how the so-called. Patent trolls, and one of them is the Texas company Corydoras Technologies, LLC, which has just launched the Apple process. The company accuses the US giant of illegally using its technology, which concerns iPhone and iPad. There are solutions for making phone calls and video calls, doing selfie, and blocking incoming calls.

The list of devices using Corydoras Technologies patents includes models available since 2010, all smartphones starting with iPhone 4, and all tablets from iPad 2 including iPad Pro.
