Android tablets are the future of computing, says Google

Published

Last year, Google formed a new Android Tablets initiative led by Android co-creator Rich Miner.

We believe the future of computing is shifting towards more powerful and capable tablets. We’re working to usher in the next chapter in computing and data entry by launching flawless support across all of our platforms and experiences that open up new and better ways to be productive and creative.

The Android Tablets team is tasked with working closely with OEMs and app developers, as well as Android developers. In fact, Android co-founder Rich Miner joined the team in March 2021.

Google developments for tablets include Entertainment Space and Kids Space. There’s also Android 12L, a version of the OS designed for larger-screen devices, with special UI optimizations coming next month. Google also encourages developers to update their apps.

The renewed interest in this form factor comes as Chrome OS is largely seen as Google’s mainstream solution for Chromebook tablets from Lenovo and HP. At the same time, there is no information that the hardware division of Google is planning to release a tablet.

Employees of Apple and Twitter are driven to the offices

Zoe Schiffer, who was recently managing editor of Twitter and now holds the same position at Platformer, said that Apple strictly monitors how employees visit offices.

Apple tracks employee attendance (using electronic badge records) and alerts employees if they don’t show up to the office at least 3 times a week.

Some at Apple, according to Schiffer, say that non-compliance could lead to dismissal, but she added that this does not seem like company policy.

Scissors undercut Windows 11 vulnerability reveals sensitive information from screenshots

A dangerous vulnerability has been discovered in one of the standard Windows 11 applications that could lead to the disclosure of sensitive information to the user. Moreover, at the moment the vulnerability is not closed and attackers can use it.

We are talking about the application Snipping Tool (Scissors). The vulnerability, called aCropalypse, allows you to undo changes made by a user when editing a screenshot, including cropped or blurred parts that hide sensitive data.

When you edit a screenshot, you can save it with the same name as the original file by overwriting it. However, as it turns out, the Windows 11 Snipping Tool does not remove the original information from the file, but simply leaves it added at the end, which is usually invisible to users. With some trickery, a potential attacker can extract hidden information from a file and see what information has been edited.

As you can see, edited screenshots are usually much larger due to the inclusion of information from the original image.

This is a pretty serious vulnerability. For example, if you share a screenshot of an order confirmation page on Amazon, it may contain an address, the same goes for credit card numbers and other sensitive data.
