In addition, the hacker would have given the company’s data on how hacking was done, which Zomato will soon reveal to the public.

WhatsApp Pinned Chats Feature Comes to Android

WhatsApp Pinned Chats Feature Comes to Android

 

WhatsApp has finally introduced the new functionality of the cat for all Android users. The functionality was earlier this month for Android beta users. The WhatsApp chat feature allows users to rate cats’ favorite cats from the tab. With the new feature, WhatsApp users can display up to three contacts in addition to the rest of the conversation.

“With cats on, you should never worry about the long list to scroll conversations to send a text to your family or your best friend.Now users can classify up to three of the most important individual cat groups at the top of their list Chat for easy access – simply press and hold a chat message and hit the icon at the top of the screen clip, “said WhatsApp in a statement announcing the pin function for Android.

Unfortunately, pin cats currently only support three cats then a notification is displayed that “You can attach up to 3 cats” if you try to locate another cat.
In addition to the Pin option, WhatsApp users can also see other options, such as Erase, Mute, and Archive, which appear during prolonged cat pressure.

One of the key highlights of the new PIN functionality is that once you’ve impressed a cat, it will remain at the top of the chat list regardless of your dialogue or your talk time with the individual or group. Users will see new conversations or conversations following the established cats. You can also delete WhatsApp chats whenever you want by pressing and holding the option and disable the Pin button.

Destiny 2 Gameplay Event: We’ve Got the Game Details!

Today, Hawthorne, CA, Bungie and Activision have hosted a game destination event 2. The presentation was broadcast live (you can see the replay here) and reveal all kinds of new information. We have learned that the PC version will be featured on Battle.net, we will have a new card that shows live events and allows you to travel quickly, and the game now supports clans and guided games, allowing players in Solitary to join a clan or simply run multiplayer content. There are new slot machines, subclasses and a villain named Ghaul. There was even a new trailer for the game. There was a lot in common, but we did not get a chance to sit down with Eric Osborne, head of the community, to talk in more detail. We also have an event gallery with images of Destiny 2 new toys, weapons and more, which can be seen below.

CONNECTION: Reveal Game Trailer Destination 2

ComingSoon.net: So the PC version of the game will be featured on Battle.net. Can you give us more details?

Eric Osborne: Obviously, we are working with Activision, and working closely with Blizzard and having cultivated relationships with Blizzard in a studio for a long time. Luke Smith, our game director, is a World of Warcraft Lord and spent a lot of time in his world and have spent a lot of time in ours, so he felt like a partnership and a very good association. We consider them close minds. We try to create a diverse, global and public players of various positive and welcoming. This seems to be a super beautiful way. And what an incredible opportunity, right? This is our first foray into PC gaming forever … what better way to make it our first step to having a partner in Blizzard and Battle.net.

. CS: Tell us more about the PC version of the upcoming game What kind of differences do we see? Something you want to highlight?

Osborne: Wherever we offer Destination 2, we obviously want to make sure the whole experience is. So, PlayStation 4, you get 4K support and all activities. And the PC, which really is more accessible, depending on your hardware. So things, like in widescreen format support, 4K resolution, frame rate unencapsulated. The FOV slider, us configurable commands fully customizable. It can be played on a keyboard and a mouse. You can play on a controller and make a quick swap if you want. So we really want to make sure that the first thing we do targeting on the PC is a true PC creation experience. We know that PC gamers are a demanding group. As players ourselves, we want to make sure it depends on the gaming community. We want to make sure it’s super adjustable, so if you play on a moderate PC, you can have this experience, and if you play a founder edition 7700 with 16 RAM, you can do whatever you want.

CS: The idea of clans in the game and guided games is something new and something that will allow solo players to have more access to the game. Can you talk about the genesis of this.

Osborne: Yes, that is, personally, my wife plays. She is quite alone. It is not antisocial, but it plays when our child is in school or when he has a break during a weekend and plays mainly in activities that he can play alone or in play. But this means failure in one of the best experiences we have to offer. We are aware that we have these people who want to play some of the advanced content that we have created some of the most difficult content. And we have these groups and communities that have formed very positive. Not just for a first-person shooter game, but for general video games. The associate simply looks like a great way to introduce individual players into groups without compromise and can also allow clans and social groups who are already trained to have a group of players who can pull out when needing one or two players in A certain night. Sometimes it is difficult for both parties

WannaCry Attacks: Microsoft Criticised for Not Offering Free Patches to ‘Unsupported’ Windows XP Users Earlier

US software giant Microsoft has withdrawn the distribution of the free security update that could protect computers from the world of cybernetics WannaCry, the Financial Times reported on Thursday.

In mid-March, Microsoft released a security update after detecting a security flaw in its XP operating system that allows the WannaCry reference system to infiltrate and freeze computers last week.

However, the software giant has sent the free security update – or patch – users to the latest version of the Windows 10 operating system, according to the report.

Older software users, like Windows XP, had to pay heavy support costs, he added.

“The high price highlights the dilemma facing the world’s largest software company, trying to force customers to switch to newer, more secure software,” he said.

A Microsoft spokesman, based in the United States to AFP: “Microsoft offers custom support contracts as a security measure” for companies that choose not to upgrade their systems.
“To be clear, Microsoft would prefer that companies are improving and realizing all the advantages of the latest version rather than choosing a custom support.”

According to the FT, the cost of upgrading previous versions of Windows “from $ 200 (about Rs 13,000) per device in 2014, when regular support for XP ended at $ 400 (about 26 RS 000) the following year “While some customers were invited to pay additional fees.

The newspaper said the high costs led the British National Health Service – one of the first victims of the WannaCry attack – did not make the updates.

Microsoft finally distribute the patch for previous versions Friday – the day has detected ransomware.

Although the announcement was “too late to contain the outbreak of WannaCry,” the report said.

Microsoft has not confirmed the AFP when it made the free patch.

A group of hackers called Shadow Brokers released the malware in April, which claims to have discovered the defect of the NSA, according to Kaspersky Lab, a Russian provider of computer security

Due to leaks so far, the Xiaomi Mi 2 Max should come in 4 GB RAM with 626 Snapdragon SoC and 6 GB RAM with 660 Snapdragon SoC variants priced at CNY 1,499 (around 14,000 RNC) and CNY 1,699 (around Of Rs 15,900) respectively. Some of the other proposed specs include a 12-megapixel rear camera with Sony’s full 6.44-inch IMX378 HD sensor. The phone is also considered sport a 5 megapixel front camera. Like the Mi Max, the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is also likely to launch outside of China. The company will also introduce a 128 GB Medium High 2 storage variant.
Some of the supposed filtered images suggested the Mi Max 2 will result in a totally metallic body. The phone is also said to pack the dual loudspeaker grilles to the bottom edge of the device and a USB Type-C port. The 3.5mm audio jack is visible on the top of the device and the fingerprint scanner is located at the rear, like its predecessor.

Last year, Xiaomi will be considered to have shipped 1.5 million Max Mi units in the two months since its launch in China.
