Firefox: The 64bit version back soon

According to some rumors on Google Groups, the shift would occur following the request of many developers have revealed that many users exceeded the limit of 4GB of memory imposed by 32-bit systems when using simultaneous a large number of tabs (called a hundred, or even thousands of pages simultaneously)

At first, Benjamin Smedberg said that Firefox was not programmed to respond to this type of case, but relativized by announcing that the necessary changes would not be a real burden in terms of development.

Are concerned nightly versions of Firefox, and each user wishing to continue to benefit from the 64-bit version will know and make himself the installation of future editions.

Indeed, the migration program has not changed, and future updates of existing 64bit version will offer a migration to 32-bit versions. Free to each user then go visit the official Firefox to download the 64 bit version in progress.

However, future versions will be considered 64bit editions and compatibility with third-party plug-ins and add-ons will not be assured. More than a return on its decision, it is a compromise that is proposed, allowing everyone to continue to use Firefox in its 64-bit version in addition to the standard version.

The unspoken goal of Mozilla is certainly different: prevent migration of users to other browsers Internet Explorer or Opera.

Version was installed for free on Facebook and is its variation with the Star Wars license that invites today on the social network. Beta version for now, the application should quickly gather a lot of players from the 22.6 million fans of the title.

If we can believe that success is assured for the title, however, Rovio has its port address carefully, and the Beta should not see announcement with great pomp, allowing the publisher to test his game with a limited number of players.

However, the beta is left accessible to anyone who wants. Rovio is certainly an editor primarily oriented mobile gaming market, but it could be that the company is also a partnership with Facebook as was the case with Zynga.

Gmail: indisponiblité short and this is the end of the world

On Twitter, some users have quickly joked about the Apocalypse or the end of the world yet planned as we all know to December 21, 2012 ...

The cause of this joyous mess ... a simple unavailability of Gmail, Google's webmail 425 million users.

Gmail has been subject to delays or even impossible to access. And users have reported the appearance of a 502 error, namely Bad Gateway or Proxy Error.

The incident, however, did not last long - a few minutes - and apparently it posed particular problems for users of Google Chrome with a browser crash. Apparently a problem with Google Sync.

For explanations and excuses rigor of Google, we will stick to its dashboard apps:

Mega: this is what will the service!

It is via Twitter that Kim Dotcom has posted screenshots of Mega. The service will Mega.co.nz. domain name

It reveals the key generator, the cornerstone of the service, as well as the registration service and file manager.

 For now, Mega invites visitors to give Leure email address to be informed about Mega. The site also offers partners to host the service, informs developers APIs for the service and for investors.

But from January 19, 2013, here's what the service will look like. Remember that the person has chosen this date as a snub to the authorities and in particular the police who stormed his mansion a January 19, 2012.

The first screenshot shows that Mega integrate encryption keys RSA 2048 bits:

 The second screenshot shows that in order to register to Mega, one must specify a name, email address and a password:

Finally, the third screenshot shows the file manager (look at the files: there is a certain "raid_footage.raw"):

An opportunity to discover more features and specifications. Thus, each user will have a Cloud Drive space (probably a digital locker in the cloud) allowing to store (ie to download it) and upload files.

The user can organize them in folders. "Contacts" and "inbox" suggest that it is possible to make contact with other users, synonymous with a future community (no longer download each in his corner) around Mega.

Facebook: a ​​few figures on integrating in-app

Facebook and emphasizes applications integrated into the social network, but also the integration of network mobile platforms and third-party applications.

According to Facebook, the site itself focuses more than 350 applications involving more than one million monthly active users.

 Add to this the impressive figure of 200,000 iPhone and Android applications incorporating links and interactions with Facebook. IPhone integration is even blamed as a driver of success for applications with 9 of the top 10 applications marketed integrate functionality associated with the social network of Mark Zuckerberg.

The company says that nearly 220 million users who visit the space applications per month and more than 251 million subscribers every month to play games on the social network.

Always according to Facebook, 45% of the 400 most popular iOS apps using the SDK Facebook, social network integration in the mobile market is truly focused on Facebook in the absence of competition enjoying much popularity.

Other social networks benefit even incorporating Facebook into their design to expand their audience and gain importance, including Pinterest is particularly pointed.

Remains whether highlighting these figures have the same impact with investors, concerns about the ability of social networks to monetize its members remains a real question. Especially the last band split with Zynga has not really played in favor of the share price of Facebook.

Windows XP: less than 500 days before the end

Announced some time ago, advanced support for Windows XP will end indeed to be April 14, 2014 in just under 500 days.

Once the end of this support, no more updated security patch or else will be offered by Microsoft, using the OS will become dangerous for normal users, but will report almost suicide for professional that computer security is of paramount importance.

Migration of the entire IT infrastructure to the latest OS seems unlikely, involving a movement of one million users per day. This is a new division of the world computer which is then expected.

Cleavage should be established in three points, a vast majority of users will choose to stay still on Windows XP, most individuals in the blink change should move towards Windows 8, the latest from Microsoft, while the workplace will naturally turn to Windows 7, more stable, more reliable and have already established a substantial basis on providing confidence with this target.

Microsoft has already anticipated migration delivered through the end of XP support since specific plan is already prepared to guide these users to Windows 8.

Thus, Microsoft expects to sell 400 million licenses of Windows 8 in the coming year, sales spontaneous migration and mixed.

Extended support for Windows XP has certainly played disfavor renewal OS for consumers, at least that's what Microsoft thinks indicating that the longevity of XP has already delayed the development of IT infrastructure and Windows 7 the coexistence of the three OS only undermine the comer. One way to explain the mixed results of Windows 8 launch.

However, Windows 7 is expected to continue to be sold until the end of XP support, after which it will no longer matter to the latecomer, each being forced to comply with the new batch of Windows.

GeForce: Maxwell new generation 20 nm

As was the case for older architectures and Fermi Tesla unveiled in 2008 and 2010, 28 nanometers Kepler architecture formalized this year will not be replaced within two years of existence.

It is in any case what the group said Nvidia, on the occasion of the SC12, a conference devoted to supercomputers.

 It must also be said that the Californian giant can sleep soundly with AMD's hard to follow at the moment - and not only in graphics cards - and Intel is still far behind - its first graphics solution worthy of name does indeed happen in 2013 with the Haswell platform.

Kepler's replacement will not happen until 2014 and then respond on behalf of Maxwell. It sound like the transition to 20 nanometer fabrication process.

In 2013, it will be as well as an update of Kepler.

Windows Store: Google Search Windows compatible RT

This compatibility was surprisingly lacking for the Google Search in the Windows Store. Following an update, it is no longer the case.

Application Research of Modern UI style proposed by Google now supports not only Windows 8 but Windows RT.

In other words, the Google Search can be run on ARM hardware architecture like the Microsoft Surface tablet.

This new version of the application is also announced - without further explanation - with more support for YouTube. A priori, it is able to view YouTube videos directly in the application.

To date, the Google Search is the only application published by Google (for services) to be present in the Windows Store and likely to overshadow the application of Microsoft Bing.

However, although Google account appear on Windows 8. As proof, the publication of a dedicated website on how to "find Google on Windows 8."

China blocks Google internet services

The XVIII Congress of the Communist Party in China has just started.

The country wants to reinvigorate its economy and boost economic growth. Renewal will require a change Chinese president with atypical (he went to prison and is married to a singer) Xi Jinping will replace Hu Jintao at the end of the Congress.

But China does not lose its old habits with censorship. Google is that, once again, in fact costs.

The Mountain View company has already announced that several of its subdomains were inaccessible from China.

This is the first website www.greatfirewallofchina.org (it allows to test real-time access to sites from major Chinese cities) who became the first echo of this censorship wild specifying the services Google became inaccessible in China: www.google.com google-analytics.com docs.google.com drive.google.com maps.google.com, play.google.com and probably other subdomains of Google.

VPN allows only one still to ignore the censorship. In addition, some subdomains Google other countries (such as google.fr for example) are still accessible.

History does repeat itself since that YouTube has been blocked since 2009 and for a time, they are all Google services that were blocked in 2010.

Censorship is of course for political but it can also hide unfair commercial practices in order to promote the country's equivalent services (eg Baidu).

Obama: victory by tweeting

It announced a mano a mano clamped between Obama and Romney in American elections. But the suspense was short-lived as the outgoing president piles up again for 4 years. Therefore a form of continuity in U.S. policy but also a discontinuity in the way of announcing the victory.

Obama has just used his Twitter account to announce his victory and congratulate the people who voted for him. Thing he did before the traditional discourse that each candidate is to announce his victory and thank the voters or defeat (and good luck to the winner). The tweet "Four more years" has been retweeted nearly 500,000 times at the same time establishing a record of the most retweeted tweet.

Clearly an election under the banner of social networks, Twitter carving the lion's share of that game is remembered record of tweets during Obama's inauguration speech in early September (52,757 tweets per minute).

In this duel via the microblogging site, it is Obama who has already won in terms of number of followers with 22.4 million subscribers to its account @ BarackObama (and an activity of 7929 tweets since its inception).

This is much more than 1.77 million followers Republican candidate (@ MittRomney account), an account also much less active (only 1350 tweets).

Obama is also relayed by his wife, Michelle, whose account is itself more extensive than Romney: 2.2 million followers for the @ MichelleObama.

Finally, since the early votes, Twitter says there were 7 million tweets on this topic. Once again, it is Obama who won on the field with 40% of them and only 24% citing Romney.

In France, the weapon is not yet Twitter still mastered by all politicians or at least their wives. Evidenced by some slippage uncontrolled Valérie Trierweiler, Francois Hollande's partner on the microblogging site.

NASA rendezvous with the ISS

To mark 12 years of the ISS, NASA has unveiled its new service, available to individuals and to create appointments between earth and space.

The application for the occasion called "Spot the Station" should facilitate the work of observers by indicating when the station is visible to them. The online software makes it possible, once registered, to receive SMS and Emails, preventing the user directly on their smartphone that the ISS is in sight.

Calculations made by the Johnson Space Center are currently available for 4600 locations around the globe, to indicate whether the station is high enough in the sky not obscured by trees, terrain or buildings.

Remember that there is no need to arm themselves with a telescope to cross the station, the ISS is the second brightest point of our night sky after the moon. observation with the naked eye can resemble a star moving slowly.

  Note that if the initiative is laudable, other applications directly available on Android and iOS already proposed a similar function without automatic alert system, but without geographical restriction.

facebook : learn more about privacy

Facebook has taken a lot of hits in the past about not being totally crystal clear with users about privacy policies, whether they have to do with data sharing, automatic opt-in features, and more.

 Thus, the world's largest social network is trying to get a little proactive with its privacy strategy -- at least for new users. The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company announced in a blog post on Friday that it is rolling out new privacy education features for new users when they sign up for Facebook.

 The information itself isn't new, but the manner in which it is presented is the upgrade. Facebook now highlights and zooms in on a lot more on the nitty-gritty details about sharing and what might or might not be public to a person's friends.

 This includes specific spotlights on tagging people in content, how they interact with apps and games, and even how ads work on the site. This also includes in-line privacy controls for customization based on the audience, whether it be for high school classmates or employers.

 Facebook cited that it did get some help with setting this education platform up from the Irish Data Protection Commissioner's Office, the regulatory oversight agency for Facebook's services outside of the United States and Canada. Interestingly, while Facebook is trying to step up its efforts for spreading privacy awareness, some users who have been on Facebook longer left comments on the announcement blog post asking for where their extra help is.

 Considering there are already a billion people on the social network, that's quite a few people they might have missed with this education campaign.

Chrome Remote Desktop en version finale

There is a little more than a year, Google launched a beta version of Chrome Remote Desktop. It is now available in final version.

 This passage is also the final opportunity to add new features such as an audio stream in real time, which is only running on Windows. Music (MP3) stored on a computer can be listened to via Chrome.

 Another new feature announced by Google is the ability to copy and paste between local and remote computer.

The application is added to Chrome from the Chrome Web Store.

News published on 11 October 2011: For the moment, Chrome Remote dektop application is in beta. Free, it is destined to Google Chrome browser and allows remote desktop sharing.

 There is here no question of this book take control of a computer Chromebook, are concerned since computers running Windows, OS X, GNU / Linux and Chrome OS so.

After installing said application, the user must start Google Chrome allow expanded access to his computer. A set of permissions to display the email address of the computers connected to the remote desktop, sending instant messages with Google Talk ... When sharing a computer is enabled, a valid access code for a single session is generated.

This code must be communicated to the other Google Chrome user (and application) so that it accesses the shared desktop through a browser window.

Such a possibility for assistance tasks is not new and has already been proposed by other dedicated software or Web services.

For Google, it is for the moment "demonstrate the capabilities of Chrome Remoting technology" and get feedback. Remote access to his own computer in his preparation.

 Google's solution is based on P2P technology to establish connectivity between two systems.

The transmitted data is encrypted (SSL), among other characteristics, the use of VP8 codec for rendering graphics on the remote system.

Windows 8: API PayPal for purchases in-apps

As part of the 2012 Microsoft Build conference, the devel oppeurs present learned a PayPal API for Windows 8 that allows them to use their payment system with applications in the Windows Store.

 Through this API, developers will be able to integrate into their applications in-app purchases based PayPal, more than 100 million active accounts.

 This availability is important for Microsoft as it can rely on a payment system known and established.

It should be noted, moreover, that when buying online update to Windows 8 Pro, PayPal transaction is possible.

Various apps have also been announced for soon such as a full app PayPal but also the arrival of Dropbox for storage and synchronization in the cloud. Microsoft SkyDrive will have competition.

Twitter will also offer application specially designed for Windows 8. Nevertheless, it will have to wait several months for it. Strangely, a Facebook app has not been mentioned - at least not yet - while Microsoft was an early investor in the social network.

A point also remains unclear. It is indeed not clear whether publishers will offer apps for Windows 8 and Windows RT. Currently, Google offers such as a search app for Windows 8, but not for RT Windows (Windows 8 for ARM).

Back to basics with a wooden keyboard and foam

Robbie Tilton, designer at times was not limited to making devices bamboo, as we can see surge in recent years, but really wanted to materialize the will of man to return to nature.

Noting a perpetual distance civilizations vis-à-vis the nature of its raw materials, intricate and asymmetric imperfection, a question was posed: what would happen if our technology were alive , breathed? If we stimulated both visually and tactilely, our user experience and our relationship to our tools change?

Unfortunately, finding no real foam, the concept has remained the decoration with artificial foam, so you can not get an idea of the volume as a whole may take, or maintenance or ease of use he would propose.

 Built for a contest, the keyboard is currently not scheduled for sale, however there are still fortunately a more radical way to escape, it is often sufficient simply to disconnect.

Apple works this time with LG Display and AU Optronics, and it has not yet reached the production capacity needed.

LG would be currently the main supplier with 300,000 screens delivered in September, October and 1 million 3 million expected in December.

Facebook: strong growth in stock market

Since its IPO in May last action Facebook had never been to such a party. If it remains far from its IPO price of $ 38, the Facebook share jumped 19.13% Wednesday to close at 23.23 Nasdaq dollars. Day during which she went to exceed $ 24.

The performance is all the more remarkable in a climate where technology stocks declined -0.34%. After weeks terrible marked by sharp decreases, Facebook began action to regain some feathers last month.

Yesterday, it had its strongest growth. No secret, the announcement last Tuesday Group's financial results reassured investors.

These results were higher than analysts' expectations. If Facebook still shows a net loss of $ 59 million, the social network has given rise to hope in its ability to monetize its huge mobile audience.

In the third quarter, Facebook generated $ 1.09 billion in advertising revenue nearly 14% ($ 150 million) from mobile.

A result even though the group's advertising products are only suitable for a few months for a consultation on mobile. CEO and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has denounced the "myth" that his group could not make money on mobile.

 An area that has become the priority. The results will obviously be confirmed in the coming months. In September 2012, Facebook recorded 1.01 billion active users and 604 million active users on mobile.
