Windows 11 leaks invoke Windows 10x design, tease new Start menu

Jun 16, 2021 - 6:56 AM - by Reverend
Windows 11 will shake up its interface with a new Start menu and bring the taskbar toward the center of the screen, a move that echoes the positioning of the dock in macOS.

Microsoft's next iteration of Windows, Windows 11, may bring with it an overhauled interface, new images surfacing on Tuesday seem to indicate. Screenshots of the desktop allegedly show there are many small changes being brought into the operating system, which could simplify the interface from its current Windows 10 appearance.

First surfacing via Baidu before being more widely distributed, including images published by The Verge, Windows 11 combines many elements introduced with Windows 10X with some new ideas. One chief concept is the centralization of icons on the task bar.

Typically the apps in use appear next to the Start menu icon on the bottom left of the screen, but images show the row of icons are instead brought to the center of the bar itself. The Start icon is part of this new center-aligned group, while other elements such as volume controls and the clock, continue to reside in the bottom right corner.
Widgets seem to be returning in Windows 11, while Live Tiles are disappearing.

The Start menu has been apparently simplified to what was previously shown in Windows 10X, losing the Live Tiles of Windows 10 in favor of pinned apps and recent files. Microsoft has also apparently gone for round corners throughout the interface, while widgets are appearing to make a comeback.

Among other changes are a new setup experience that takes users through the configuration process, and an improved Xbox app with deeper integration within Windows.

EA: Gaming giant hacked and source code stolen

Jun 11, 2021 - 8:29 PM - by Reverend
Hackers have stolen valuable information from major game publisher Electronic Arts (EA), the company said.

The attackers claimed to have downloaded source code for games such as FIFA 21 and for the proprietary Frostbite game engine used as the base for many other high-profile games.

News of the hack was first reported by news site Vice, which said some 780GB of data was stolen.

EA said no player data had been stolen in the breach.

The firm is one of the largest games companies in the world. It counts major series such as Battlefield, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, The Sims, and Titanfall among the titles it develops or publishes - as well as a vast array of annual sports games.

"We are investigating a recent incident of intrusion into our network where a limited amount of game source code and related tools were stolen," an EA spokesperson said in a statement.

"No player data was accessed, and we have no reason to believe there is any risk to player privacy," she added.

The company said it had already improved security and stated that it did not expect "an impact on our games or our business".

Law enforcement has also been contacted.

The "network intrusion" was not a ransomware attack and had happened recently, EA added.

Google ends its attack on the URL bar, resumes showing full address in Chrome

Jun 11, 2021 - 8:10 PM - by Reverend
Google has tried multiple times for years to dumb down the internet by simplifying Chrome's "scary" address bar. It first tried to erode the URL entirely by showing just search terms in the omnibox, but its impractical design forced Google to retire it. The developers recently tried to simplify the omibox again — this time hiding all parts of the web address except the domain name. While it received a fair amount of criticism from users, Google defended its decision to move forward, citing its intention to help people better identify malicious sites. But now it seems that Google has reconsidered things, as it recently decided to close the curtains on its experiment.

In a recent update announced on the Chromium bug tracker, a developer writes that hiding the URL didn't really end up improving user security in the way that was hoped, so they're going to shut down the experiment.

The change is already live in Chrome 91, so you won't need to do anything special to access the address bar. Only "https://" is hidden by default now — to show this too, right-click Chrome's omnibox and select "Always show full URLs."

Microsoft looks ready to launch Windows 11

Jun 04, 2021 - 8:28 AM - by Reverend
Microsoft has been teasing a “next generation” of Windows for months now, but new hints suggest the company isn’t just preparing an update to its existing Windows 10 software, but a new, numbered version of the operating system: Windows 11.

The software giant announced a new Windows event for June 24th yesterday, promising to show “what’s next for Windows.” The event invite included an image of what looks like a new Windows logo, with light shining through the window in only two vertical bars, creating an outline that looks very much like the number 11. Microsoft followed up with an animated version of this image, making it clear the company intentionally ignored the horizontal bars.

Microsoft’s Windows event also starts at 11AM ET, not the usual start time for typical Windows and Surface events. Following the event invite, Microsoft exec Yusuf Mehdi said he hasn’t “been this excited for a new version of Windows since Windows 95!” It’s the first time we’ve heard Microsoft specifically mention a “new version” of Windows is on the way.

The event invite also comes just a week after Nadella teased a “next generation of Windows” announcement. Nadella promised that Microsoft would soon share “one of the most significant updates to Windows of the past decade.” Microsoft’s chief product officer, Panos Panay, also teased a “next generation” of Windows earlier this year.

If Microsoft is truly readying to move beyond Windows 10 and towards Windows 11, we’re expecting to see big visual changes to reflect that. Microsoft has been working on something codenamed Sun Valley, which the company has referred to as a “sweeping visual rejuvenation of Windows.”

Your WhatsApp account will soon work on all your Galaxy devices at the same time

Jun 04, 2021 - 8:23 AM - by Reverend
WhatsApp is the world’s most popular messaging client. Despite the recent (and ongoing) controversy over its new privacy policy that will enable it to share more user data with Facebook, it will likely continue to be the most widely used messaging app for the foreseeable future. And soon, it will get a feature WhatsApp users have long asked for: the ability to use the same number and account on more than one device at a time.

Right now, WhatsApp only lets you use your account on a single phone or tablet. If you set it up on a new device, you’re logged out on the previous device. However, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg confirmed this week that an upcoming update for WhatsApp will remove this limitation and allow up to four devices to be connected to a single account. Apps like Signal and Telegram, which have seen plenty of WhatsApp users sign up in recent months, already allow the use of the same phone number/account on multiple devices, and it looks like WhatsApp finally decided to get with the program.

So, if you own multiple Galaxy devices at home, you will soon be able to use up to four of them to check and send messages on your WhatsApp account, instead of just being able to use one of those devices. WhatsApp will also be introducing disappearing messages support, which will automatically delete messages as soon as it has been sent by the recipient (similar to Instagram’s Vanish Mode). These new features will be available in the beta version of the app “in the next month or two”, and the stable version is likely to get them a few weeks after that.
