reading • Dark mode color scheme is coming to iPhones with iOS 13 At the end of 2018, there were 1.4 billion Apple devices actively used around the globe, the company said in late January during its quarterly earnings report. More than 900 million of them were iPhones.Meanwhile, Apple has more different operating systems than ever before. There’s iOS for iPhones and iPads, MacOS for its computers, tvOS for Apple TV and watchOS for the Apple Watch. Then there’s Apple Pay, iTunes, Apple Music, the App Store, iCloud, HomeKit and various other apps and services. It’s critical that Apple make a strong impression at WWDC with the next versions of its software. See also Apple’s annual developer convention kicked off Monday at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California (fittingly enough for fans of dark mode, the show’s opening video featured the song “I Guess I Should Go to Sleep” by Jack White). The confab is in its 30th year, and it’s the third year for Apple to hold its developer conference in San Jose. The city — the third biggest in California and 10th largest in the US — is about 50 miles south of San Francisco and only about 10 miles from Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.WWDC is where Apple details its newest software and services that will arrive on devices later in the year. The company may be best known for its hardware, but the seamless integration of its hardware with its software is what sets Apple apart from rivals. Apple’s ability to control every aspect of its products — something that began when Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak founded the company in 1976 — has been key in making it the most powerful company in tech.

Just last week, leaked screenshots showing off Apple’s take on dark mode surfaced on 9to5Mac. It’s also worth noting that Google introduced a similar feature for Android Q users at its I/O developer conference last month.

Another 12% used iOS 11, and 5 percent of devices ran an older version, according to the company’s developer dashboard. By comparison, only about 10% of Android devices ran Google’s latest software, dubbed Pie, as of May 7At the end of Apple’s WWDC presentation last year, the company gave a sneak peak of Project Marzipan, its effort to make it easy to take apps developed for iOS devices to Macs. Its MacOS update released in September included four of Apple’s own apps that originated on iOS — News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home.. CNET’s Shara Tibken contributed to this story.

Enable it, and your phone will replace the light-colored interfaces in native Apple apps like Maps, Mail and Messages with a much darker design. 9 Photos Mobile Tech Industry Wellness WWDC 2019: A quick visual recap of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote

[Representational Image]twitterFrank Hoogerbeets is a self-proclaimed seismic researcher who operates from the Netherlands. The researcher had made several earthquake predictions in the past couple of years, and surprisingly, most of these predictions turned true. Even though experts call it a clear case of coincidence, followers of Hoogerbeets strongly believe that the predictions made by the researcher using a sophisticated system called SSGI (Solar System Geometry Index) are right.In the meantime, Hoogerbeets has now warned that a powerful earthquake measuring at least 7 on the Richter scale could hit the planet on August 18. As per Hoogerbeets, a critical planetary geometry that happened recently is the main reason behind this rise in seismic activities.”Absence of critical planetary geometry caused a seismic lull in the last seven days with no magnitude 6+ earthquake since August 4. This is likely going to change in the coming days. Starting on the 12th, 13th a seismic increase may occur due to upcoming critical planetary geometry. A seismic peak is most likely to occur from the 14th to the 18th with potentially one or two high 6 to 7+ magnitude earthquakes,” wrote Hoogerbeets on his website.In his website, Hoogerbeets reveals that certain planetary alignments and lunar geometry are capable of releasing electromagnetic force, which will, in turn, destabilize the tectonic plates of the earth. As per Hoogerbeets, seismic activities will witness a dramatic rise when tectonic plates of our planet get destabilized. Hoogerbeets also makes it clear that he is not a part of any conspiracy theory group, and all he wants to do is exposing the truth to the general public.However, experts have dismissed the predictions made by Hoogerbeets, and they claim that no current technology on the earth is capable of predicting earthquakes with such mindblowing precision. As per experts, a small earthquake may be actually a foreshock, and this theory will become right only if we detect an aftershock in the area.
Beer is not just about uncapping it, but pouring it right and in the right glassware, say experts.Here are some tips to consider: 4The right serving temperature: Each style of beer requires an appropriate temperature to enjoy its best characteristics. As a general rule, higher the alcohol content and intensity of colour of the beer, the higher its serving temperature. What needs to be noted here is that at a temperature above 12 degree C, the beer loses the sensation of freshness, while below 0 degree C, the beer becomes tasteless. But in general between 4-6 degree C is best suited. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf4The rule for pouring: Not many people know that it is the barm/ foam (cream) on the top of the glass that protects the beer from oxidation and maintains its carbonation and taste. The way you pour a beer has a drastic effect on the thickness of that foam. You should always hold the beer glass at a 45-degree angle, that is with a slight tilt and only then you start to pour it. Beer should neither be poured way too fast nor way too slow. If you have too much froth at the head of your beer glass then you poured it way too fast. Straighten the glass when it is half full and continue pouring it. Finish pouring when you’re inches away to fill the entire beer mug.

Otherwise, the aroma, flavour, and foam of the beer will be harmed. It is important to use an appropriate type of glass for each beer style, in a way that allows us to enhance its characteristics. For example, wheat beer is traditionally served in ‘flute’ type glass. It should be wide at the top to favour the creation of a good foam and tapered at the base to trap yeast sediments at the bottom of the glass while lagers should be served in glasses that have a narrow mouth that concentrate their delicate aromas. In Spain, people drink beer in “caña” (small glass) that allows you to drink moderately without losing any characteristics of beer.
Coursera co-founder, Baidu Research chief scientist and Stanford Graduate School of Business lecturer Andrew Ng recently spoke at the the school’s MSx series about the socioeconomic impact artificial intelligence is slated to have in the coming decades.Ng believes the transformation AI has had and will continue to have on civilization is akin to the impact electricity had on “transportation, manufacturing, agriculture and health care” 100 years ago. Ng points to an IDC statistic that predicts the market share for A.I. could climb to $47 billion by 2020. AI is already deeply embedded in contemporary life, with systems metabolizing large data sets to predict user needs in everything from web searches, bank notifications and advertising to Netflix recommendations, Siri queries and pizza deliveries.Despite the ubiquity of AI, there are three major issues that stand in the path of progress.The first relates to a scarcity of data. Ng explains that data–the fuel that keeps the algorithms humming–isn’t as accessible as it needs to be in order for “AI to be meaningful.” Ng says data rather than revenue is often the driving force behind product launches for many companies.The second issue relates to a scarcity of talent. “AI needs to be customized for your business context. You can’t just download an open-source package and apply it to your problem.”The third and perhaps touchiest issue is about socioeconomic impact. Ng explains that sci-fi “Evil AI” narratives, like the possibility of Skynet becoming self-aware, are used to whitewash the reality that automated machines will likely absorb many if not most working class jobs in the not-too-distant future.To combat what will no doubt be widespread social chaos, Ng suggests we rethinks our educational system, much like the way we did when agricultural automation was introduced. Ng thinks the government should give “people a safety net, but pay the unemployed to study, to provide the structure to help the unemployed study, so as to increase the odds of gaining skills needed to re-enter the workforce.”You can watch Ng’s entire lecture here.
