Former Microsoft employee Jensen Harris, who at one time was responsible for user experience in Windows, spoke about the redesigned search menu in Windows 11 and its shortcomings.
The main disadvantage, according to the specialist, was that there were too many unnecessary elements in the search results. When Harris entered the query “chrome” in the search bar, he saw an advertising banner for the Bing Wallpaper application in addition to the results. At the same time, according to Harris, the text in the banner is not located in the center, and the background is a “picture from the times of Windows Vista.” Also, the specialist did not like the corners of the banner, which look different.
There were other shortcomings as well. For example, the “Open results in browser” button covered some of the elements, and the button with the text “Web Store” was cut off. Harris also noticed that two advertising banners appeared in the search box at once, but none of them made it easier for the user to work in the system.
Finally, an ex-employee of the company criticized the Start menu in the center of the taskbar, because the button used to be on the left. In Windows 11, you can move it to the same place, but by default it is in the center.
Earlier, Harris described how they created the logon sound for Windows 8.
11 Samsung phone models will receive the final version of Android 13 before the end of the year. Including one unexpected model
Samsung has already released the third beta version of One UI 5.0 based on Android 13 for its phones, and the final version of the firmware is expected before the end of the year. When exactly this will happen is not yet clear, but there is a list of devices that will receive stable Android 13 with One UI 5.0 before the New Year.
Of course, we are talking about flagships. The Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Fold 4, and Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Flip 4 will receive the final version of One UI 5.0 this year. level – Galaxy A53. He will receive the latest version of the software at the same time as the flagships.
Why is there so much attention on the Galaxy A53? Firstly, it is one of the most popular mid-range Samsung models released this year, and secondly, the Galaxy A53 participates in the four-year Android update program along with the flagships.
Don’t need Dynamic Island? Popular apps are in no hurry to adapt to the iPhone 14 Pro
The iPhone 14 Pro, which received the Dynamic Island interactive area in the front camera area, was introduced more than two weeks ago and released at the end of last week, but so far third-party developers are in no hurry to use Dynamic Island.
It was expected that Dynamic Island would initially only work with Apple applications, and developers would start releasing updates to their applications to adapt them to Dynamic Island.
Even before the launch, there was a lot of discussion about the fact that hugely popular apps in China, including WeChat and Tencent Video, are not optimized for use with Dynamic Island. WeChat notification pop-ups do not appear in the Dynamic Island interactive area, but simply under this notch, which does not respond to the application in any way.
WeChat update 8.0.29 for iOS was released yesterday, which fixed some compatibility issues on iPhone 14 series smartphones. However, there was no adaptation to Dynamic Island. Messages continue to appear under the notch. Other apps in China have also been updated but not supported.
Mydrivers writes that Apple has not yet opened the Dynamic Island Application Programming Interface (API) to third-party developers. For the first time this became known a few days ago.
It is worth adding that after the release of almost every new generation of iPhone, we are seeing a similar situation. At first, many shout “everything is gone”, “no innovations”, “a lot of bugs”, but in the end the problems are quickly resolved, and there are more than 100 million owners of new Apple smartphones in the world.
“Personally, I have just crazy freezes in games.” Gamers are massively complaining about the big Windows 11 update
Microsoft wouldn’t be itself if Windows 11’s first major update – Windows 11 2H22 – turned out to be hassle-free. Users (and especially gamers) faced a lot of difficulties after installing the update. Most frequent complaints — on the drop in frame rate in games (this is especially true for Nvidia 3D accelerators), the slowdown of the OS itself, and the blue screen of death.
The largest American form of Reddit is full of resentment. “Personally, I just have crazy freezes in games. Removed the update – it became much better”, wrote one Reddit user.
Another commenter noticed significant FPS drops immediately after the update. According to him, it became impossible to play, while he has a fairly powerful hardware, and before the update of the operating system, there were no problems with games.
A third forum member notes that the same problems were observed in the Windows 22H2 beta version three months ago. The user thought that everything would be fixed in the final version of the update, but this did not happen. “Thank you for wasting another hour of my time“, — wrote a disgruntled Reddit user, referring to Microsoft. By the way, he noted that after installing Windows 22H2, even scrolling the page in the browser turns out to be “twitchy”.
After installing Windows 22H2, there are also problems with sound. A variety of games slow down, including relatively undemanding ones like Call of Duty. Nvidia has joined the investigation and is asking users to submit more data. It is possible that soon the company will update the GeForce driver specifically taking into account the problems identified in Windows 22H2.
For now, everyone has the same recommendation. — do not install the update, and if it is already installed — roll back.
