Huawei says Hongmeng OS isnt designed as an Android replacement

first_img Company chairman Liang Hua said last week that Hongmeng was mainly developed for internet of things (IoT) devices, according to TechNode, and Huawei hasn’t decided if it’ll be applied as a phone OS.We got the first rumblings that Huawei trademarked Hongmeng in China after Google locked the company out of its Android updates in May, following the US government blacklisting Huawei networking gear and President Donald Trump signing an executive order effectively banning it. Google resumed work with Huawei after the US eased restrictions.Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.First published at 2:15 a.m. PT.Updated at 2:50 a.m. PT: Adds more detail. 1:23 CNET Apps Today Phones Tech Industry 40 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Huawei’s homegrown OS faces a steep uphill climb Share your voicecenter_img Tags 0 Post a comment The Hongmeng OS isn’t for phones, Huawei’s senior vice president told reporters. Angela Lang/CNET Huawei reportedly wants to keep using Google’s Android operating system in its phones instead of jumping to its self-developed Hongmeng system. Company senior vice president Catherine Chen told reporters in Brussels on Thursday that the Hongmeng OS isn’t even designed for phones, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua.Chen apparently said Hongmeng is for industrial use, noting that it contains far fewer lines of code than a phone OS, and has much lower latency than a phone, meaning it can process a  very high volume of data messages with little delay.

The transgender, who watched the show for a week, realized that Mahesh Vitta, Baba Bhaskar and Jaffar Babu are popular contestants. She started playing her game within no time after she entered the house.It is known that Mahesh Vitta and Varun Sandesh were seen having heated argument with each other last week. But both of them put the fight behind and are back as friends. Mahesh apologized to the couple. Even Varun forgave Mahesh and he stayed away from nominating the latter for the elimination.But Tamanna Simhadri seemed to be reigniting the fight between the two contestants, as she spoke to Mahesh. She said that he should not to apologize Vithika and Varun Sandesh, as the couple was at fault. Her words definitely brought change in Mahesh, who went on nominate Varun’s wife Vithika for eviction. Her influence is likely to create more trouble inside the house.Many viewers also feel that Mahesh Vitta has come the influence of Tamanna Simhadri after talking to her. Hence, he nominated Vithika for elimination from Bigg Boss Telugu 3.

KoPT cruise to tour citys landmarks

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Port Trust (KoPT) will start a heritage tour down the Hooghly from April 28. The cruise tour – ‘A Voyage through Tide and Time’ – will be “solely managed” by the port, KoPT chairman Vinit Kumar told PTI.”The KoPT plans to run the service on weekends but it requires a group of at least 20 heads to conduct a tour. The tourism department will help us in promoting and marketing the heritage trip without any exclusive tie-ups,” Kumar told PTI. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe tour will begin from the Maritime Heritage Centre at Old Fairlie Warehouse, where visitors would get a chance to learn about the country’s maritime history.The centre houses maritime documents that date back to the British era.From the heritage centre, the tourists would then be taken to the historic Man-of-War Jetty at Prinsep Ghat to board a cruise vessel.The vessel would pass along the historic ghats, travel upstream to the Koilaghat jetties – an erstwhile berth for foreign ships – touch the Howrah bridge, the Kidderpore Dock lockgates, the BNR House – where Nawab Wajid Ali Shah once resided – and the Suriname Memorial, before ending the journey at the Indenture Memorial and Old Clock Tower site.

Save Business Expenses with Netbooks

first_imgApril 21, 2009 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 3 min read Enroll Now for Free By Zack SternWhy Do You Need New Systems?Can you use netbooks for business? The answer depends on your specific needs, but there’s a good chance you can with current hardware. And more powerful, upcoming hardware is even more likely to work. Don’t rely on netbooks beyond their light-use design. If you’re replacing aging desktop PCs, netbooks will likely run at similar speeds without any perceived upgrade over the old hardware. A smaller case is nice but probably nets a result of wasted money.Consider netbooks more if you’re replacing old laptops. Speed gains will still be modest at best, but the little laptops could cost a lot less than more powerful systems.Netbooks can best supplement your current laptop stable instead of putting old systems out to pasture. If you’ve added a few new employees–even temporary staff–the cheap laptops could help you ride out the tightening economy.How Will You Use the New PCs?The current crop of netbooks handles a few tasks well and is abysmal at others. Be sure that your needs fall in the former group.Consider a netbook for basic productivity tasks. Even Office applications are on the threshold of straining the systems–but I think most hardware is just fast enough. Better–and lighter–uses include web browsing and email. And if your office uses online tools in a browser, the netbooks will likely work well.Avoid netbooks for more taxing, media applications. Forget any regular graphics- or audio-creation software. Forget video editing. Even media playback can be a chore on these laptops.Pick a Netbook and ExtrasIf you’re going to buy a netbook, first choose between Windows XP and Linux. Linux can offer lighter system needs and therefore streamlined performance. However the hurdle of adjusting to a new OS and rethinking your software might be too big.Netbook hardware specs are generally similar between different brands. Most of all, check out the screen and keyboard sizes. I type poorly on netbooks with 9-inch screens because the smaller form-factor shrinks the keyboard too much. See how you handle the smaller keyboards. And check out screen resolution. You’re not likely to get a lot, but get one with a resolution of 1,024×600 or greater–the typical size.Load up on RAM; shoot for 2GB. It’ll help bolster an otherwise sluggish system. And get at least 16GB of disk storage. Anything less can be too cramped next to system and application files.You’ll need peripherals for heavy netbook use. Definitely add a full-size keyboard if you’ll be typing in an office, hotel, or other longer-term location. And dig up an old monitor–or add a cheap new one–for more constant in-office use.Upcoming netbooks could act a lot more like full laptops, although there aren’t any specific release plans yet. But if you need new hardware now, the current crop can fit into a small business if you know what to expect.last_img read more

4 Tips for Attracting GoogleQuality Software Engineers

first_imgMarch 14, 2014 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals According to the latest Glassdoor survey, you don’t need to pay Google salaries in order to attract Google-quality software engineers.The online recruiting platform found that 52% of software engineers are likely to accept less money in order to enjoy a better work culture, while 51% are likely to take a lower salary in order to work on an attractive product or service. The average annual salary for software engineers in Silicon Valley is over $111,000.“The general perception, if you will, is that software engineers are in such high demand that you need to throw cash at them to hope to reel them in,” says Glassdoor director Samantha Zupan. “The big takeaway is that money isn’t everything.”And given that one in four software engineers plans to start looking for a new gig in the next three months, small businesses and startups looking for great software engineers may be in luck. Zupan shares four top tips for attracting software engineers:Related: Yelp, Yahoo Partnership Goes Into EffectNo. 1: Communicate your company’s story.Zupan says the survey findings underscore how important it is to software engineers to work on projects they feel strongly about.“They never know when that hot new startup is hiring that is in an area they feel passionate about, so they are always keeping their eyes and ears open,” says Zupan.To take advantage of this, Zupan says it’s important that recruiters and hiring managers do a terrific job articulating what is special about the business.“What’s your story? What are you trying to do? What’s the vision for the company?” asks Zupan, listing some of the important questions recruiters should keep in mind. Recruiters should also think about how they want to portray the company culture.No. 2: Get personal.When reaching out to potential candidates, Zupan says it’s important to get personal.“It’s a turnoff when you get a generic email from a recruiter. It shows they’re not not paying attention to who that person is or why they might be a right fit,” says Zupan. Being able to speak specifically about the work that a particular candidate has done in the past will make your company stand out, and speak highly about the office culture.Related: SEO – Y Care? Basics for Business OwnersNo. 3: Discuss long-term plans.Zupan says many software engineers are eager to know what the long-term trajectory looks like at a company before taking the job.“What’s the type of work that I will have once I finish this project?” asks Zupan, citing an important question many engineers have. “There needs to be a career advancement pipeline.”No. 4: Remember that attractive benefits aren’t one-size-fits-all.While many startups receive attention for in-office parties and catered meals, Zupan says perks that may be attractive to one engineer might not be all that appealing to another.“If you are a software engineer that has two or three kids … on-site amenities that allow you to stay longer at work are not the thing you want to have. You want things that help you be a great mom or dad and allow you to spend time with your kids, like telecommuting,” says Zupan.Related: 5 Top Cities for Starting a Business 3 min read Register Now » This story originally appeared on FOX BUSINESSlast_img read more

Messaging app Telegrams updated Privacy Policy is an open challenge

first_imgSocial media companies are facing a lot of heat presently because of their privacy issues. One of them is Facebook. The Cambridge analytica scandal had even prompted a senate hearing for Mark Zuckerberg. On the other end of this spectrum, there is another messaging app known as Telegram, registered in London, United Kingdom, founded by the Russian entrepreneur Pavel Durov. Telegram has been in the news for an absolutely opposite situation. It’s often touted as one of the most secure and secretive messaging apps. The end to end encryption ensures that security agencies across the world have a tough time getting access to any suspicious piece of information. For this reason Russia has banned the use of Telegram app on April 2018. Telegram updated their privacy policies on . These updates have further ensured that Telegram will retain the title of the most secure messaging application in the planet. It’s imperative for any messaging app to get access to our data. But how they choose to use it makes you either vulnerable or secure. Telegram in their latest update have stated that they process personal data on the grounds that such processing caters to the following two goals: Providing effective and innovative Services to our users To detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud or security issues in respect of their provision of Services. The caveat for the second point being the security interests shall not override the space of fundamental rights and freedoms that require protection of personal data. This clause is an excellent example on how applications can prove to be a torchbearer for human rights and basic human privacy amidst glaring loopholes. Telegram have listed the the kind of user data accessed by the app. They are as follows: Basic Account Data Telegram stores basic account user data that includes mobile number, profile name, profile picture and about information, which are needed  to create a Telegram account. The most interesting part of this is Telegram allows you to only keep your username (if you choose to) public. The people who have you in their contact list will see you as you want them to – for example you might be a John Doe in public, but your mom will still see you as ‘Dear Son’ in their contacts. Telegram doesn’t require your real name, gender, age or even your screen name to be your real name. E-mail Address When you enable 2-step-verification for your account or store documents using the Telegram Passport feature, you can opt to set up a password recovery email. This address will only be used to send you a password recovery code if you forget it. They are particular about not sending any unsolicited marketing emails to you. Personal Messages Cloud Chats Telegram stores messages, photos, videos and documents from your cloud chats on their servers so that you can access your data from any of your devices anytime without having to rely on third-party backups. All data is stored heavily encrypted and the encryption keys in each case are stored in several other data centers in different jurisdictions. This way local engineers or physical intruders cannot get access to user data. Secret Chats Telegram has a feature called Secret chats that uses end-to-end encryption. This means that all data is encrypted with a key that only the sender and the recipients know. There is no way for us or anybody else without direct access to your device to learn what content is being sent in those messages. Telegram does not store ‘secret chats’ on their servers. They also do not keep any logs for messages in secret chats, so after a short period of time there is no way of determining who or when you messaged via secret chats. Secret chats are not available in the cloud — you can only access those messages from the device they were sent to or from. Media in Secret Chats When you send photos, videos or files via secret chats, before being uploaded, each item is encrypted with a separate key, not known to the server. This key and the file’s location are then encrypted again, this time with the secret chat’s key — and sent to your recipient. They can then download and decipher the file. This means that the file is technically on one of Telegram’s servers, but it looks like a piece of random indecipherable garbage to everyone except for you and the recipient. This complete process is random and there random data packets are periodically purged from the storage disks too. Public Chats In addition to private messages, Telegram also supports public channels and public groups. All public chats are cloud chats. Like everything else on Telegram, the data you post in public communities is encrypted, both in storage and in transit — but everything you post in public will be accessible to everyone. Phone Number and Contacts Telegram uses phone numbers as unique identifiers so that it is easy for you to switch from SMS and other messaging apps and retain your social graph. But the most important thing is that permissions from the users are a must before the cookies are allowed into your browser. Cookies Telegram promises that the only cookies they use are those to operate and provide their Services on the web. They clearly state that they don’t use cookies for profiling or advertising. Their cookies are small text files that allow them to provide and customize their Services, and provide an enhanced user experience. Also, whether or not to use these cookies is a choice made by the users. So, how does Telegram remain in business? The Telegram business model doesn’t match that of a revenue generating service. The founder Pavel Durov is also the founder of the popular Russian social networking site VK. Telegram doesn’t charge for any messaging services, it doesn’t show ads yet. Some new in app purchase features might be included in the new version. As of now, the main source of revenue for Telegram are donations and mainly the earnings of Pavel Durov himself (from the social networking site VK). What can social networks learn from Telegram? Telegram’s policies elevate privacy standards that many are asking from other social messaging apps. The clamour for stopping the exploitation of user data, using their location details for targeted marketing and advertising campaigns is increasing now. Telegram shows that privacy can be achieved, if intended, in today’s overexposed social media world. But there is are also costs to this level of user privacy and secrecy, that are sometimes not discussed enough. The ISIS members behind the 2015 Paris attacks used Telegram to spread propaganda. ISIS also used the app to recruit the perpetrators of the Christmas market attack in Berlin last year and claimed credit for the massacre. More recently, a Turkish prosecutor found that the shooter behind the New Year’s Eve attack at the Reina nightclub in Istanbul used Telegram to receive directions for it from an ISIS leader in Raqqa. While these incidents can never negate the need for a secure and less intrusive social media platform like Telegram, there should be workarounds and escape routes designed for stopping extremists and terrorist activities. Telegram have assured that all ISIS messaging channels are deleted from their network which is a great way to start. Content moderation, proactive sentiment and pattern recognition and content/account isolation are the next challenges for Telegram. One thing is for sure, Telegram’s continual pursuance of user secrey and user data privacy is throwing an open challenge to others to follow suite. Whether others will oblige or not, only time will tell. To read about Telegram’s updated privacy policies in detail, you can check out the official Telegram Privacy Settings.
