The current Smartphone technology belongs to shatter proof technology. Motorola feels that this technology is going to be very much in demand and so it had come up with Moto X Force with this technology. Now, in regards to the new versions of Moto G4 and the Plus version reports suggest that Motorola will come up with Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus soon. These are supposed to be G3 successors. These reports had come from Gizmo China. But there were no confirmations as such. However, the confirmation came from Lenovo CEO that perhaps a phone will be launched on June 9th. It is a known fact that Motorola is now owned by Lenovo. But there is no word that the phone that is going to launch on June 9th would be Moto G4 or G4 Plus.

The leaked specs

 

As per the leaked specs Moto G4 is expected to be having the following features:

 

  • 5.5-inch display
  • 13MP camera
  •  16GB of internal storage.

 

Moto G4 Plus may have

 

  • 5.5-inch display
  • 16MP camera
  •  16GB of internal storage

 

So, there doesn’t seem to be too much difference except for the camera. It is not yet clear as to what would be the price. But if Motorola comes up with the affordable deal then perhaps this would be an added advantage for the Smart Phone buyers who have been looking for the best options and that too within the budget.

 

The finger print sensor is set to come up on thee phones in the middle of the screen. If you are looking for something like this then you just have to wait till June 9th. Apart from all this, it seems that Motorola has something more in his mind and so there would be one more Flagship phone ahead. It can be somewhere after June 9th. What it would be is not clear. Motorola always likes to create some suspense and that’s the reason why it has created this novel thing on the line.

 

Is the new product really G4?

 

As per the CEO and as per the leaked images, the sign actually shows that the new product would be G4 and G4 Plus or G4 or G4 Plus. But what it would be is still the suspense. So, all you can do is simply wait and watch. The rear camera has been upgraded in the upcoming models and so this really seems to be something you must look out for. Now, what you should see to is whether the June 9th event would be a grand one or it would just be a small launch! Whatever it is we would soon let you know as soon as we get some hints or leaks. If you have been looking for a decent deal then perhaps you should wait till June 9th and this will really give you the very best options.

A New Software Is Developed By Researchers Which Helps In Detecting Flaws n web Apps!

A new team of researchers has developed a new software which is definitely a breakthrough in security mainly for programs that are written in the popular framework of web applications, Ruby On The Rails.

The researchers have exploited some peculiarities of Ruby On Rails, the popular framework of web programming. A system has been developed by researchers from MIT which can very quickly comb through a thousands of lines of application code so that security flaws can be found.

Ruby-on-Rails-slider

The software was tested on around 50 popular web applications that were written on Ruby On Rails. In this, around 23 undiagnosed security flaws were found. Moreover, it didn’t take even 64 seconds for analyzing the given program.

As per Daniel Jackson, the system which is newly developed makes use of static analysis. This describes in a very generic way how the flow of data takes place through the program.

A perfect example of this is that if abstract analysis of the program has to be done which helps in manipulating integers. The integers can be divided to positive integers, zero and negative integers, explained Jackson.
Then, with static analysis, all the operations in the program are evaluated as per the effect on the sign of the integers. 2 positives if added will yield a positive. If 2 negatives are added, it would yield a negative. If  2 negatives are yielded, it would yield a positive and the thing goes on.

The problem with this is that there is no complete accuracy since the information is lost, says Jackson. If a positive as well as a negative integer is added, you wouldn’t know whether the answer is zero, negative or positive. Majority of the work that is on static analysis has a focus on making the analysis more accurate and scalable for overcoming these kinds of problems.

With web applications, there is a high cost of accuracy said Jackson. He also stated that if the program under analysis is added, it is huge. Even if a small program is written, it would sit atop vast edifice of plug-ins, libraries and frameworks.

 

The results would be presented in the month of May at the International Conference On Software Engineering.

Chrome 50 Released For Linux, OS X And Windows

Chrome 50 has been released by Google for Linux, OS X and Windows. With this update, several improvements have been brought about along with security fixes, bug fixes and loads of new features. There is also an expectation that soon Chrome OS and Android would roll out very soon.

As an announcement was made in the month of November, Google had ended support for operating systems that were mainly OS X 10.8, OS X 10.7, OS X 10.6, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

With Chrome 50 for Linux, OS X and Windows, PushAPIis updated for adding push notification payloads. This means that notification deliveries are made more efficient as notification data are sent simultaneously along with message.

google-chrome

With this, notifications can be customized by the developers with time stamps and buttons. Also, the site would give the users vibrating, sound and silent notifications. Webmasters would be given an information that when a user closes a notification, sync notifications can be helped across various devices and analytics data would be provided.

Another new features that are there in the Chrome 50 have a declarative preload wherein site developers can help browser know which resources are needed for properly displaying a page along with the link rel=’preload’ attribute which brings about a significant reduction in the page load time.

For showcasing this, a video has been published by Google that contrasts the page load times without and with implementation. There were also some other developer facing features that were unveiled.

In the meantime, Chrome 50 for Android would be getting a cancel and pause button for the purpose of downloads. It was also mentioned that Chrome 50 come along with 20 security fixes. The most important contribution that external researchers made were highlighted.

These are Universal XSS in extensions bindings, out-of-bounds read in PdFium JPEG2000 decoding, out-of-bounds write in V8, use-after free that have relation to extensions, memory read in media that uninitialized, address bar spoofing, Android downloaded file path restriction bypass, as well as potential leak of sensitive information to dangerous and virus filled extensions.

Chrome’s New Mute Tab Helps Silence Auto-Playing Video/Audio Menace

Imagine you clicked on a website’s link to read an interesting story or an article or you are browsing through online shopping website, and suddenly you hear some jingle, music or random audio through your PC speakers. You waste several minutes figuring out the source of that audio. This irritating situation might have occurred to you multiple times.

If you have multiple tabs open, situation gets worse. If you are clumsy like the majority of the users, then you might have 10-15 tabs opened simultaneously in your Chrome Browse. During this time, it is nightmare to find from which tab that particular sound or advertisement is playing.

google-chrome-mute-tab-audio

It’s so embarrassing when you are sitting in a library with your laptop. Suddenly, audio sound starts playing and you have no idea from where it is playing. So you can’t shut it down immediately. Thankfully now there is a feature to save you from this kind of embarrassment.

Up to the present time no easy solution was available to combat this problem. You had the option of muting audio sound completely. But then you couldn’t hear audio when needed. Fortunately Google Chrome noticed this error and introduced a mute button in the latest version. Users are loving this feature already. From version 46.0.2490.71 onwards, you will find Mute button. To stop your sufferings, switch to Chrome, to take advantages of the Mute button.

Using Mute Tab.

To avail the mute option just go to any specific tab you wish to mute and right click on the top header bar of that tab. Then click on Mute Tab. So any auto playing audio, video or ads will be muted in that particular tab. Because of this you can open any link without stressing about unwanted audio. The tab specific option makes it easy to play audio or video in the tab which you want. Muted tabs will have a mute sign displayed so you will distinguish between non-mute and mute tabs easily.

Although the mute option is really helpful, people would have liked it more if it was more intelligent. For instance it would have been good if Chrome itself could figure out any auto playing ad or music and mute it. Instead of making the user mute various tabs. Maybe we can hope for this too in later versions. For now Mute tab can make your life a little bit easy by taking away Audio menace.

YouTube Red Will Provide Viewers an Ad-Free Experience; But Content Creators Given Just 2 Options: Signup or Disappear

Finally YouTube launched its anticipated paid subscription service plan. This will allow users to experience ad-free content and a bunch of other perks. Named as YouTube Red, this might be the redefining moment not only for YouTube but for the whole digital industry. Finally it can leverage their zillion hours of videos and billions of users. This can be an eminent case study on how the digital services are monetizing their content without ads.

youtube-red-logo

YouTube Red is scheduled to launch initially in US. Later on it would be available across other countries too. As for now, Subscription charges are $9.99 per month. That’s roughly Rs 7400 INR per year. Google’s official blog post said that they are giving their fans exactly what they want by introducing YouTube Red. Launching on 28th October, it is designed to provide users the ultimate YouTube experience.

Some of the features of YouTube Red:

  • Ad free viewing of all content on YouTube
  • Option of saving videos offline
  • Saved videos accessible on cross platforms like tablets, movie, Cloud and desktops
  • Option of playing videos in the background
  • Membership perks will include across YouTube Gaming app, YouTube Music app (which will launch soon) and Google Play Music.
  • Access to the exclusive YouTube content. This content won’t be available on any other platforms like Cinema or TV.

YouTube specifically stated that accessing YouTube will still be free. However by subscribing with YouTube Red, users will be able to support their favorite YouTubers while watching what they want, when they want and on any device which they wish, uninterrupted.

Way back in 2013 and 2014, people had speculated about YouTube’s paid service, which now is a reality.

Option for Content Creators: Signup or Disappear.

The most important aspect of this platform are the content creators. And it seems amidst this paid service, they are being taken for a ride by YouTube/Google. Apparently the content creators are being forced to be a part of YouTube Red. Otherwise they can face extinction. So they don’t have a choice of refusing.

It’s kind of a Signup or Disappear situation for the content creators. Google has made clear to them that if they don’t sign up for YouTube Red, then their channel and their content would not available in the existing old format or in the paid one.

Hence this makes the negotiations very difficult for the content creators. Their hard work is being strategically monetized by YouTube. Many YouTubers have felt that YouTube is bullying them to sign up for this and isn’t being very fair towards them.

This is common sense that churning free viewers into paid ones would make content creators more money. Although many things are hazy and ambiguous as of now. Some tech bloggers have said that instead of coming with ‘Signup or Disappear’ tactic, YouTube should have flagged videos as ‘Not available on Red’. But forcing the content creators to join Red isn’t fair.

This situation is not being very desirable for the content creators as of now. During April, YouTube announced that they will paid 55% of the earned revenues via paid subscriptions to the YouTubers. Whereas Spotify pays around 70% overall revenues to their content creators. Apple Music gives a share of 71.5% to their artists. But here with Google, revenue sharing ratio is much less.

Regarding this issue, Google gave a response saying that it was the wish of both, creators and users for paid YouTube service. Further continued saying that due to overwhelming majority of their content creators, compromising nearly 99% of YouTube’s content, have signed up. Also videos of partners (YouTubers) who do not wish to update to Red will be made private. Although it will remain Google’s priority to work closely with partners who don’t sign up and try to bring them on board eventually.

There are several YouTubers who provide content for mass entertainment such as standup comedy, challenges, DIYs etc. They still feel that ad based income would not surpass subscription based one. However, YouTube Red isn’t giving them much freedom to choose. Either they can sign up for Red or their content will not be accessible. Hence it is believed this is the reason 99% of content creators have signed up for YouTube Red, with or against their wish.
