After a couple years of beta testing, Niagara Launcher is now available for download from the Google Play Store. It’s designed to replace the default Android app drawer and home screen grid with a layout that’s easier to access with one hand. You choose your favorite pin apps on the home screen, and the rest are within easy reach of your thumb under an alphabetized list on the right side of the screen. It’s quick and very responsive; you can either tap or swipe up and down to scroll your app list on the portion of the alphabet you’re looking for. By swiping across any app to pull up a list of choices, such as setting a new timer in the clock app or starting a session with Strava, Niagara also enables you to take quick action from the home screen. A summary of notification material on the home screen will also be displayed by favorite users, and a tap will extend this to display the full text without opening the app. With the free edition, these basic features are available, but to further customize your home screen with additional widgets and display your percentage of battery life requires an upgrade to the paid pro version, which costs $6 per year. Niagara features a clever interface, and on a large phone it will really come in handy. I would also have liked it on my Before Time standing-room-only bus commutes, when for dear life I always clung to a rail with one hand while checking my email with the other. On a smaller phone, too, it is pretty convenient for a more detailed look at your

On Monday, the Microsoft Azure Quantum service opened to the public, introducing radically different computing technologies to the second-largest cloud computing service in the world. The quantum computers built by Honeywell and IonQ are included in Azure Quantum. These devices use a design called an ion trap that uses electrically charged atoms as qubits, the fundamental element of information storage and processing used by quantum computers. In the future, Microsoft is preparing to incorporate another Quantum Circuits concept whose qubits are supercooled electrical circuits. Eventually, Microsoft would introduce to the service its own homegrown quantum computers. Its solution, known as topological qubits, promises qubits that are more robust than those used in competing designs and are designed to allow longer running of quantum computations. Microsoft hasn’t yet seen its technology, however, unlike rival quantum computer manufacturers. The introduction of Azure Quantum marks the latest step in quantum computing
One of the most turbulent and trying times is going through engineering exporters. Of India’s total merchandise exports of $320 billion, the engineering industry contributes more than 25% and is one of the country’s largest generators of jobs. Engineering exporters must compete with China, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia, and these countries have the best infrastructure, fast and cost-effective ports, cost-effective domestic transport, and significant government cash subsidies.Unfortunately, despite being such an important market, engineering exporters are now on the verge of losing a major portion of their industry to other nations, leading to large-scale layoffs and permanent factory closures. The urgent steps to be taken to save the engineering sector are listed below: 1. Steep rise in prices of steel The greatest challenge faced by exporters is the unprecedented continuous rise in the price of steel. In July 2020, Cold Rolled Coil prices ranged from Rs 43,000 to Rs 44,000, up to Rs 65,000 per MT, which is an increase of almost 50%. No customer can withstand such a rise and, because suppliers from other countries have not raised their prices, foreign customers are not able to bear such high costs. To save this hard-built market, engineering exporters should get steel at least 20 percent lower than the current price. 2. Abnormal
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has opened another front against Apple, saying that iPhone manufacturers and governments have the potential to access messages from most users and that their future performance may be damaged by privacy improvements in Apple’s iOS 14. Stressing that Apple has every reason to use its dominant position on the market to interfere with how our apps and other apps run, Zuckerberg said the company “sees Apple increasingly as one of our biggest rivals.” iMessage is a huge pillar of their ecosystem. On every iPhone, it is pre-installed and favoured with private APIs and permissions, which is why iMessage is the most used messaging service in the United States. “And now, we are also seeing Apple’s business increasingly relying on us and other developers to gain share in apps and services,” stressed the Facebook CEO. Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Facebook, also said the company would find ways to amplify stories about small businesses concerned about improvements to Apple’s iOS. In the next iOS 14 beta, Apple’s latest privacy feature requiring developers to request permission to monitor iOS users for ad targeting is expected to go live. Zuckerberg said Apple recently published so-called nutrition labels, which focused mainly on metadata gathered by apps rather than the privacy and protection of the actual messages of individuals. iMessage stores your messages with non-end-to-end encrypted backups by default, unless iCloud is disabled.
As per the global market research company International Data Corporation (IDC), China will outperform the UnitedStates in 2024 in the China vs. USA race to become the world’s largest Internet of Things (IoT) market. At the cusp of another technological revolution, the current fact remains. A few new technologies such as 5 G, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, autonomous systems, cloud computing, and blockchain are driving the revolution, all driven by data. It’s interesting that, under the influence of Trump, the US went the other direction to China. In August, Trump signed a $716 billion defence strategy bill as well as tightening legislation to curb Chinese participation in US innovation. China’s investment in management platforms is vital to its ability to oversee and provide infrastructure on a global scale. The Industrial IoT (IIoT) is the location where the money is at the end of the day. The Americas rules the world in IoT ventures covering: Connected Industries (45 percent), Connected Building (53 percent), Connected Vehicle (54 percent), Smart Energy (42 percent), Connected Health (55 percent), Smart SupplyChain (49 percent), and Smart Retail Chain (49 percent), as per a January 2018 IoT Analytics study (53 percent ). According to the report’s numbers, China’s IoT spending is expected to hit around US$300 billion by 2024, with the compound annual growth rate staying at 13 percent over the next five years.
During activity, the agency seizes approximately 2.39 crore in cash The Central Bureau of Investigation has arresteda senior official of the Railway Engineering Service, Mahendra Singh Chauhan, and four others on the accusation ofa private contractor collecting bribes. During the operation, the agency confiscated about ~2.39 crore in cash. The 1985 batch official was posted at Assam’s Maligaon as the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) in Construction-II of the North East Frontier Railway unit. The other arrestees are Deputy Chief Engineer Hem Chand Borah; Assistant Executive Engineer Laxmi Kant Verma; Bhupendra Rawat, an ABCI Infrastructures Private Limited employee based in Guwahati; and Indra Singh, a relative of the CAO. All the accused are being taken to Delhi on remand for transit. The CAO allegedly requested ~1 crore from the director of the company. When the CBI officials arrested them on Sunday, the cash was given by the company employee at his relative’s Dehradun residence. The money was confiscated as well. Three others were subsequently convicted. “On the premises of the Deputy Chief Engineer and the Assistant Executive Engineer, 18.5 lakh and 6.5 lakh were found during searches. In addition to the suspected bribe sum of 1 crore, 60 lakh was confiscated in Dehradun and 54 lakh from the Guwahati premises of the CAO. Jewellery and property papers have also been identified,’ a CBI official said, adding that it was one of the agency’s largest trap incidents. Source: www.thehindu.com
