Apple has to change many of its familiar products due to new EU laws. We already have USB-C in the iPhone, next year Apple will make it possible to install software not only from the App Store, and now it is reported that the company will also adopt the RCS standard.
RCS (Rich Communication Services) has long been the messaging standard on Android, but Apple had no intention of introducing support for it in iOS. Now, according to 9to5mac, the company has explicitly stated that it will do so.
Later next year we will add support for the Universal RCS Profile, a standard currently published by the GSM Association. We believe that the RCS Universal Profile will provide better compatibility than SMS or MMS. RCS will work alongside iMessage, which will continue to be the best and most secure messaging option for Apple users
Of course, if not for regulatory pressure, Apple would not have taken such a step. At least because literally a year ago she directly stated this. Let us remember that when at one of the events one of the journalists complained that his mother could not watch the videos that he sent her, Apple CEO Tim Cook answered as simply as possible:
Buy your mom an iPhone
It’s worth noting that with the arrival of RCS on the iPhone, the iMessage app is here to stay. It will remain one of the foundations of iOS, and RCS will replace standard SMS and MMS, and at the same time improve compatibility between iOS and Android in this aspect. In addition, as we see, Apple continues to focus on the fact that iMessage is better.
“Blackmail me with money? Go to hell. The whole world will know that these advertisers killed the company,” Elon Musk responded to the departure of advertisers from X/Twitter
Speaking at the DealBook 2023 summit in New York on Wednesday, Elon Musk, owner of the social network X (formerly Twitter), ridiculed advertisers leaving the platform because of anti-Semitic messages he spread there.
“What if someone tries to blackmail me with advertising? Blackmail me with money? Go to hell. Go. F—. Yourself,” Musk said, singling out Disney.
On November 20, Apple said it would stop advertising on Platform X, two days after Elon Musk tweeted his agreement with an anti-Semitic post. A number of other major technology and media companies, from IBM to Disney, made similar announcements on Friday.
Elon Musk also stated that his fans will boycott these advertisers in response: “The whole world will know that these advertisers killed the company, and we will document it in detail. I have no problem being hated.”
In recent weeks, Musk has endorsed what the White House called “anti-Semitic and racist hate” on X. He called the tweets “one of the dumbest, if not the dumbest, thing I’ve ever done on the platform.” “I regret these tweets,” he added.
This week he also visited Israel, where he met and spoke with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. When Netanyahu said he wanted to “deradicalize” and “rebuild” Gaza, Musk offered to help. Musk said his visit to Israel was planned before his tweets and was not part of an “apology tour.”
Musk has previously said he wants to bring SpaceX’s Starlink satellite communications service to the region and, in particular, to humanitarian organizations in the Gaza Strip.
Windows artificial intelligence will become much smarter. Copilot system will switch to GPT-4 Turbo
Microsoft’s Copilot assistant, integrated into Windows 11, will soon move to the GPT-4 Turbo language model.
General Director of Advertising and Web Services at Microsoft, Mikhail Parakhin, said that the company still needs to correct some shortcomings. However, no time frame for the transition has been announced yet.
As a reminder, GPT-4 Turbo features a large number of improvements relative to GPT-4, including a context window for 128,000 tokens. True, with Copilot it may well be limited.
In addition, this language model is trained on data up to April 2023, which gives it an advantage over older versions.
Samsung now has a browser for Windows. Samsung Internet is now available in the Microsoft Store
Samsung today unexpectedly launched its browser on PC. The Samsung Internet app is now available in the Microsoft Store.
In the case of Android, let us remind you that the application is called Samsung Internet Browser, but this, of course, does not change the essence. There is only one screenshot in the Windows store in which the Samsung browser is no different from Chrome.
Actually, this is not surprising, given that most third-party browsers for Windows rely on the Blink engine, which also underlies Chrome. But the developers of many well-known browsers are trying to make their applications unique, at least externally, but this is not yet the case. But Samsung Internet will allow owners of Galaxy smartphones to synchronize data on their PC with the browser on their mobile devices. True, so far this function works only partially, allowing you to synchronize your browsing history, bookmarks, saved pages and open tabs, but not passwords.
Let us remind you that today we learned that Samsung may abandon the Exynos brand.
