The Google Street View feature turns 15 today. To celebrate this occasion, Google has added the ability to view street photos on mobile devices. This feature has been around on computers since 2014, but it’s only now being rolled out to iOS and Android.
Google is making an important improvement to the way it captures Street View data for Google Maps with its new camera. In the image below, it’s a new modular system that weighs around 7kg and is no bigger than a house cat, according to Google. The new camera can be installed on any car with a roof rack and controlled from a mobile device. Previously, Google Street View cameras required a special vehicle mount and sophisticated processing equipment to operate.
The new camera will allow Google to expand the Street View feature. Google says the new camera will be in use next year.
It is also announced that Street View Studio will allow users to quickly and bulk upload panoramic image sequences to Google Maps.
60 MP plus 50 MP, 4500 mAh, 100 W, slim body and branded Android replacement. All specifications and live photos of Huawei nova 10 Pro ten days before the announcement
We have already seen Huawei nova 10 and nova 10 Pro smartphones both on official renders and on unofficial ones, and now live photos of nova 10 Pro have been published on the Web. At the same time, a complete list of features for the nova 10 and nova 10 Pro was released. At the same time, we note that the official premiere of smartphones will take place only on July 4.
I must say that in live photos, the main camera block looks more massive than in renders, but in general the design is typical for Huawei.
The platform – fortunately or unfortunately – is also typical of Huawei and Honor smartphones: it’s Snapdragon 778G 4G. Both models will be presented in two versions – 8/128 and 8/256 GB. You should not count on the presence of 12 GB of RAM in these devices.
nova 10 Pro will receive a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2652 x 1200 pixels and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The display of the younger model corresponds in size and frame rate, but its resolution is slightly lower – 2400 x 1080 pixels.
The screen of the nova 10 Pro has a stretched oval notch that will house two sensors: the main one with a 60-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide angle lens and an additional 8-megapixel one with a portrait lens. The embedded front camera in nova 10 has a familiar look, since it has only one module – with a 60-megapixel sensor.
The main camera in these models is represented by three modules: the main one with a 50-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout and two additional ones – an 8-megapixel one with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel one for analyzing the depth of the scene. Apparently, there will be no optical stabilization system.
The battery capacity of Huawei nova 10 Pro is 4500 mAh, the device will support 100 W charging. nova 10 will receive a 4000 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast charging. The thickness and weight of the nova 10 Pro is 7.88 mm and 191 grams, while the nova 10 is more compact and lighter at 6.88 mm and 168 grams. Both models will run HarmonyOS 2.0.1.
Windows 11 latest update brings tons of fixes, fixes annoying crashes with games, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Microsoft has released a fresh update to Windows 11, which brings a large list of fixes for problems that users of the OS have complained about.
As noted on the network, crashes with games were especially annoying. Microsoft explains that games have stopped working when using certain technology to play sound effects. In addition, crashes when reconnecting Bluetooth devices and when using the Wi-Fi hotspot function, among many others, should be fixed.
For corporate users, the Windows 11 update brings the Search Highlights feature, which suggests content based on what day it is. For example, important events and holidays, and corporate users – important contacts and recent files. The new interface appears when the user clicks on the search box on the taskbar and doesn’t type anything.
An optional update for Windows 11, number KB5014668, is available through Windows Update (Windows Update), as well as for manual installation. It is not automatically installed unless the user clicks the “Check for Updates” button.
Google promised a big update to Chrome for iPhone
Google spoke about the upcoming large-scale update of the proprietary Chrome browser for the iOS platform.
Soon, Chrome users on iPhone and iPad will have access to several new features at once. Chrome has long had a password manager – Google Password Manager – for computers and Android devices, and now this service will receive support on the iPhone and iPad. It will auto-complete passwords.
Google also promises better protection against phishing and malware on iPad and iPhone. Enabling Enhanced Safe Browsing for Chrome on iOS will allow the browser to predict and warn users if they visit a web page that Google systems have previously identified as phishing or malware.
Chrome on iOS will also get a leak alert feature. The browser will alert users if their credentials have been compromised.
Another innovation is to help users discover new content and launch Google searches if the app has not been used for a long time. Recently opened tabs will still be available, but Google wants to make it easier for users to browse content and get back to frequently visited sites faster.
In addition, after the update, the translation of sites into the user’s language will be faster. In addition, Chrome Actions (Chrome Actions) will become available, which allow you to quickly change settings or launch functions from the address bar. For example, delete your browsing history, open an incognito tab, or set Chrome as your default browser.
