A couple of weeks ago, Honda unveiled a charged version of the new Honda Civic sedan, dubbed the Honda Civic Si 2022. Now the prices of the car have been announced.
It will be offered in the US starting at $ 28,315, which is $ 7,000 more than the standard Civic sedan and about $ 5,000 more than the Civic Hatchback. The Honda Civic Si 2022 is also 2,300 more expensive than the previous generation Civic Si.
Honda claims the 2022 Civic Si has all the elements of a sporty family sedan that is fun to drive. It has an updated 1.5-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 200 hp. with a torque of 260 Nm. The declared fuel consumption in mixed mode is 7.5 liters per 100 kilometers.
More importantly, the new Civic Si will only get a 6-speed manual gearbox with overrun functionality borrowed from the Civic Type R. Honda claims the handle has 10% shorter travel and a sharper gear feel for maximum driving pleasure.
The Honda Civic Si 2022 features gloss black interior trim, 18-inch matte black alloy wheels, a sporty grille, a redesigned upper bumper and a redesigned rear bumper with two oval tailpipe trims. The cabin features sports seats with red stitching, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also a 12-speaker Bose audio system – the best audio system ever installed in a Civic, according to Honda.
For an additional $ 200, they offer to purchase a set of summer tires. Car deliveries will start at the end of the year.
Windows 11 introduces third-party widgets
Microsoft has released a new test build of the Windows 11 operating system in the Developer (Dev) channel.
The assembly is available to members of the Windows Insiders program. The main new feature in build 25217 is the long-awaited support for third-party widgets.
Windows Insiders can now start developing and testing widgets for their apps. Widgets can be added to the widget board, which is currently only populated with web content offered by Microsoft.
Because this is a preview, developers are not yet able to submit widget-enabled apps to the Microsoft Store. Accordingly, users cannot simply find applications with widgets right now.
Elon Musk accused Twitter of recklessness: the company intends to continue to sue
Billionaire Elon Musk, who plans to acquire Twitter, accused the social network’s executives of reckless actions that jeopardize the completion of the deal.
Musk’s advisers sent a notice on Twitter that the entrepreneur intends to complete the deal on the terms stipulated in the agreement dated April 25, 2022. Musk’s lawyers are pushing for the deal to be canceled in Delaware court, scheduled for October 17, in order to raise the necessary funding without hindrance and complete it as early as October 28.
Surprisingly, they (Twitter) are insisting on continuing this lawsuit, recklessly putting the deal at risk and putting the interests of their shareholders at risk.
In April, Musk offered $44 billion for Twitter, but then demanded to check the company’s data that the number of fake accounts used, among other things, to send spam, did not exceed 5%. According to Musk, the social network underestimated the number of such accounts, and also did not provide sufficient information when requested. He was also dissatisfied with the personnel policy of the company. Later, on July 8, Musk notified Twitter that he was refusing to buy it. The social network filed a lawsuit against the businessman in a Delaware court.
The other day, Elon Musk said that the purchase of Twitter is “an accelerator for creating X, an application for everything.” The service may be very similar to WeChat, the Chinese super app that the billionaire openly admired and grew out of a mini-internet messaging service with a billion user base.
Pavel Durov’s statement about the danger of WhatsApp called the head of the analytical center Zecurion a fight with a competitor
The head of the Zecurion analytical center, Vladimir Ulyanov, said that the words of Telegram founder Pavel Durov about the dangers of using WhatsApp are PR for his messenger, and also added that such statements should be treated with a certain degree of skepticism.
Any programs that we use, both for ordinary users and corporate ones, are all vulnerable in one way or another. If now we do not know about the existence of any vulnerabilities, this does not mean that they do not exist at all.
Vladimir Ulyanov said that messenger vulnerabilities always have a human factor, and their detection is a matter of time.
You should not assume that there is one messenger that is absolutely unique in terms of device and security, and the other is full of holes and bad, and you should not use it. No, this statement is rather made within the framework of competition.
The head of the Zecurion analytical center also noted that in any application there are settings that allow you to increase its security level. He reminded that you should not follow dubious links sent from an unknown addressee.
Earlier, Pavel Durov said that WhatsApp has been a surveillance tool for 13 years.
