A new feature called Instant Android Apps will let users run applications immediately, without the need to first be installed locally. The idea is that developers will be able to reach out easier and quicker and get a bigger audience. Developers do not have to rewrite their applications, but they need to be updated to take advantage of Android Instant Apps, which can take less than a day according to Google. IO16 pic.twitter.com/QQbJ6xlJCc - Google @google May 18, 2016 In the beginning, only a few developers have access to the feature, but it will get a broader rollout later this year. We suppose that the function will go off and how systemtillåtelser will be handled for Instant Apps is not clear. We call it Instant Android Apps, and it evolves Android apps to be able to run instantly, without requiring the installation.
The vulnerability CVE-2016-4010 is fixed in version 2.0.6 issued overnight.Magento handed the flaw a 9.8 out of 10 severity score explaining that the platform installation code is no longer accessible once the installation process is complete."I recommend all Magento administrators to update their installations to the 2.0.6 patch."The chained attack combines smaller vulnerabilities which Rubin has detailed in full, and relies on REST or SOAP being left enabled from default which is the case in most installations.Much of the fault lies with the sizeable and dynamic API for each Magento module that customers use to run things like shopping carts.Rubin praised Magento for its code overhaul which has seen vast re-writing, code improvements, and a bolstering of security.
Google today unveiled Android Instant Apps, a new project the company is experimenting with that offers users a subset of an existing app.That s a big frustration for developers who have invested significant amounts of time building beautiful and powerful apps.Android Instant Apps are designed for developers who have already built an existing Android app, not those looking to build one from scratch.It s the same Android APIs, the same source code, the same project, Android Instant Apps product management director Michael Siliski told VentureBeat.But the biggest restriction is that each module cannot exceed 4MB.The goal is to have Instant Apps launch in a timeframe that is comparable to a mobile webpage, Siliski said.That means existing links can be used to launch Instant Apps — Google Play Services does all the work behind the scenes.That means this is very much a Google Play affair.Google wants to progress very gradually with Android Instant Apps, as this is a big change for both developers and users.Right now, about a half dozen partners are trying Instant Apps: Buzzfeed, B Photo Video, Medium, Hotel Tonight, Zumper and Disney.
Big data-as-a-Service, or BDaaS, is a way of accessing analytics tools or information from an outside provider.This can help organisations to gain insights into the meaning of data so that they can gain competitive advantage by improving customer relationships and business decision making.BDaaS is designed to help businesses to free up resources by taking advantage of tools that are being provided by an outside organisation.Like SaaS, BDaaS is a form of managed service that often relies upon cloud storage in order to provide data access to both the outside analytics company and the company that owns the information.The area has gained increased interest over the past couple of years as companies have looked to leverage their data in a way that doesn't create costly overheads and rely upon a complex installation and integration process.Simply put, BDaaS is an ideal way to remove the tech complexity from doing data analytics, leaving the business to focus on simply using the data insights to improve its performance.
At Wednesday's Google I/O keynote, the company showed off Android Instant Apps—apps that run without even being installed.The demo was a sneak peek at a feature that will be rolled out over the next year, according to Ellie Powers, group product manager on the Android team.With the Web, you can just click on a link and land on a webpage.She looked for a camera bag on a page of search results, and the resulting link actually loaded a simple app authored by B The app is even already signed in, so that the user doesn t even have to enter a credit card.Imagine tapping a parking meter and downloading the appropriate app—and being ready to pay, too.It could take less than a day of work.
An attempt to reduce the numbers of visitors smuggling drugs, mobile phones and USB sticks heaving with pornography into a prison has been roundly mocked, with Chelmsford Prison's installation of 7ft cardboard policemen in its car park branded an insult to the security staff who actually work there.The pretend cops were stuck to the walls in the car park in some sort of attempt to psychologically undermine the smuggling plans of visitors, visitors bosses presumably think stupid enough to see a flat cardboard thing and think it might actually be real.The car park is already fitted out with CCTV cameras to keep an eye on visitors walking funny because of all the slimline feature phones they've got shoved up their bottoms in freezer bags, so the 2D law enforcement officers are clearly quite redundant anyway.Francis Crook, from the Howard League for Penal Reform, has officially branded the poster police a bit silly too, explaining: "I think it's insulting to staff.Having cardboard cut-outs of coppers outside is insulting."Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.

The operating system is already installed on more than 300 million devices but it s still far short of Microsoft s most popular OS, Windows 7.According to NetMarketShare, the OS is installed on 47.82 percent of desktops compared to just 15.34 percent of machines running Windows 10.The point I m getting at here is that Windows 7 is still an incredibly important part of Microsoft s overall software strategy.Microsoft s Nathan Mercer recently announced a solution it s calling a convenience rollup for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 that should help matters.Instead, it consists of all the security and non-security fixes that have been released since SP1 that are suitable for general distribution through April 2016.Best yet, the convenience rollup can be injected into Windows 7 SP1 media for a seamless installation.
Before the show, we chatted with Android VP of Engineering Dave Burke.Burke clarified that the Android team took a bit more than just "inspiration" from Chrome OS, though, "We're actually using the same code, in some places, and bringing that to mobile."This can take anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour—Samsung actually quotes "25 minutes" in their update UI.Previous versions of Android N also added a new compiler that can do JIT Just In Time or AOT Ahead of time compiling, which allows it to skip the "optimizing apps" dialog after an update and compile the apps later.SquashFS is designed for an embedded system where space is at a premium, so it should help cut down on some of the storage use.We just wish more devices actually had the first world problem of having to wait for an update to apply.
Android is the most popular operating system in the world, installed on millions – if not billions – of devices, from smartphones and tablets to smart appliances such as TVs and fridges.First, this is an early developer preview, which means it's not intended for regular smartphone owners, but rather app developers who want to make sure their products work with Android 7.0 N. So although you can expect some of the latest features of Android 7.0 N to work, such as bundled notifications and multi-window support, you should expect some bugs and errors as well.Ensure that your device's built-in back-up feature is enabled – to do this go to Settings Backup & reset and make sure both 'Back up my data' and 'Automatic restore' are checked.Connect your Xperia Z3Next, make sure your Xperia Z3 is powered on and then plug it in to a USB port on your PC or Mac.Download and install Android 7.0 NHold down the Alt key on your keyboard and click on 'Software repair', which is displayed on the home screen of the Xperia Companion software.Once the Xperia Z3 has turned off, hold down the volume down key on the smartphone and plug it back into your computer.
Android is the most popular operating system in the world, installed on millions – if not billions – of devices, from smartphones and tablets to smart appliances such as TVs and fridges.So it's always exciting when a new version is released, and Google is busy working on Android 7.0 N.Update: At the Google IO 2016 event, Google announced that you can now sign up your device for the Android 7.0 N Beta Quality Release Candidate.To sign up go to the Android Beta website and select 'Enrol device'.The current version of Android, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, hasn't even been out a year, and many Android owners are still waiting for it to become available for their devices.That hasn't stopped Google working on its follow-up, although Android 7.0 N is still in its early stages – we don't even currently know what the 'N' stands for – although we have made a few educated guesses.

If you've ever reinstalled Windows, you'll know the tedium of installing update after update to bring the operating system up to date, repairing security holes and improving performance.If you're reinstalling Windows 7, that hassle is now over – Microsoft has just launched a pack of updates it's calling a Convenience Rollup, containing every update since the release of Service Pack 1 in 2011.To download the Convenience Rollup, visit Microsoft's Update Catalog using Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher.Unlike a Service Pack, the Convenience Rollup isn't essential for all users of Windows 7, and if your OS is already up to date, you can safely ignore it.You need to install Service Pack 1 before the Convenience Rollup, and it'll occupy 4GB of drive space, but once you've finished you'll have every Windows 7 update from October 2009 to April 2016.

Speaking to Android Police, Google confirmed that all existing Nexus devices – including the flagship Nexus 6P – will miss out on the new feature.This almost certainly extends to new phones like the Galaxy S7 too.Seamless updates allows an Android phone to download and install new software versions in the background, cutting down the faff of upgrading.When you update an Android phone today, it goes like this: you wait for an OTA update notification, download the file in the prompt, reboot the device, and wait an age for the update to actually install.So when you restart your phone, you ll have the new version straight away – no slow installation process required.In fairness, a user could plug their phone into a computer and repartition the entire phone, but Google probably doesn t want to encourage users to risk bricking their handsets.
Businesses spend countless hours trying to figure out how to improve the productivity of their workers even by a fraction of a percent.Traditional tech buying cycles usually take into account base units and input peripherals, but displays are left out of the equation because they still work and are a pain to move around and refurbish.The business advantages derived from multiple displays are well documented: Bill Gates and the late Terry Pratchett were well-known advocates, but rolling multiple displays across hundreds of desktops is not an easy task as it can be quite disruptive if the installation requires dedicated monitor stands.You can now find monitors sporting that resolution for around £300 and even less if you opt for a 4K TV set and a growing number of laptops - such as those with DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 - can connect to them natively.A much higher pixel count translates into more being displayed onto the screen, which can give you more than 5,200 spreadsheet cells in Microsoft Excel and the ability to display four A4 sheets side by side in Microsoft Word.Want 4K as soon as possible?

The video shows creator OsirisX browsing the Steam library before launching into the game Bastion, which is then shown running at what appears to be full-speed.When it was originally released the PlayStation 3 officially supported the installation of the open-source operating system, but this functionality was later removed over concerns that it could facilitate piracy on the console.There has also been an explosion in the amount of games available for Linux, thanks in part to Valve having introduced its store to the operating system.The practice of using a PS4 to install and run Linux games is unlikely to take off thanks to the requirement for users to use an older version of the PS4's operating system.Sony does not make it easy for users to roll-back their firmware because of how this can reintroduce security exploits that have previously been patched.Nevertheless it is interesting to see new functionality being hacked into the PS4, and we would be interested to see if a Linux install on a PS4 could be used alongside Steam's game-streaming functionality to bring Windows games to the PS4.
In the latest wave reminders are not enough even to close the box - you must actively opt out of the upgrade, otherwise performed automatically. If you do not want Windows 10, or if you want to wait a few more weeks to upgrade, there are a few methods to get to. Never10 developed by security researcher Steve Gibson and is the most popular and easiest option. If you have already downloaded the Windows 10's installation files that take up more than 6,5GB Hard Drive offers 10 Never remove them.
