Weekly Tech Roundup for February 01 2019
Technology feeds on itself. Technology makes more technology possible. – ALVIN TOFFLER
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. That’s what technology trends create in your subconscious. Check out these inspiring technology trend that might just inspire you to further develop your love for technology.
We also included some snippets from our daily knowledge development sessions, just to give you a little extra knowledge. After all, knowledge is never enough. Take your time and digest every one of them. The world is fast evolving and so should your mind.
I witnessed an impressive 5G-based artificial reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) demo at this year’s Qualcomm 4G/5G Summit in Hong Kong. Indeed, AR and VR together, referred to as extended reality (XR), is possible today, and 5G’s higher speeds, greater capacity and lower latency will naturally improve the experience. But this demo, referred to as “boundless XR,” clearly showed how transformational 5G could be and gave further credence to the “wireless edge” concept that I discussed in my previous article.

After TechCrunch caught Facebook violating Apple’s employee-only app distribution policy to pay people for all their phone data, Apple invalidated the social network’s Enterprise Certificate as punishment. That deactivated not only this Facebook Research app VPN, but also all of Facebook’s internal iOS apps for workplace collaboration, beta testing and even getting the company lunch or bus schedule. That threw Facebook’s offices into chaos yesterday morning. Now after nearly two work days, Apple has ended Facebook’s time-out and restored its Enterprise Certification. That means employees can once again access all their office tools, pre-launch test versions of Facebook and Instagram… and the lunch menu.
I know first-hand how frustrating it is to get locked out of your Google account and to lose access to much of your online life. I’m hoping this simple work-around will help get you get through the account recovery process much faster than the manual method, which takes a minimum of 3-5 days (and in my case ended up taking weeks).
This week, a colleague who remembered my article on my lock-out experience, asked me for advice after she was locked out of her account. And a solution occurred to me, one that I had actually discovered last year, but had never put to use myself. It worked for her, and I hope it works for you too. It’s actually pretty simple.
Amazon has been forced to pull an estimated 400,000 products in India after new regulation limiting e-commerce businesses went into force in the country today.
First announced at the end of 2018, the new regulation imposes a ban on exclusive sales, prevents retailers from selling products on platforms they count as investors, and it applies restrictions on discounts and cashback promotions.
