It is confirmed: this Movistar service will go up in price and will cost 1 euro more

Published

on

Movistar announced last August that it would begin to offer the Nextory service under advantageous conditions for its customers. This gives them access to a total of 300,000 books based on true events, science fiction, etc., in addition to more than 80 magazines on a wide variety of topics. All of these books and magazines can be downloaded to read later. The blue operator offers 1 free month of the service and then charges a fee of 7.99 euros. This is one euro less than the price of the service for non-customers of Movistar. However, as of February, Nextory will cost one euro more, also for Movistar clients.

Nextory is an ebook and magazine service that has a special agreement with Movistar because the operator bought Nubico, owned by Telefónica España and Planeta, last June. Nubico was launched in 2013, but a lot has changed in the audiovisual landscape and in paid subscriptions since then. Aware of the need to move forward, Movistar sold Nextory, a subscription service with hundreds of thousands of audiobooks and electronic books that is available at Finland, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Norway. Of course, they made it clear that “Movistar and Nextory will continue to offer a wide and attractive catalog of ebooks, magazines and also audiobooks.”

The price will be 8.99 euros from February

By virtue of that, Movistar offers its clients the Movistar Nextory service (ebooks, magazines and audiobooks) which, basically, is the same that any user who subscribes independently can enjoy, but with the advantage of pay 1 euro less every month and pay directly on the invoice without having to provide your bank details to a third party.

Now the Movistar Nextory legal conditions make it clear that there will be a price increase:

The monthly price of Movistar Nextory (ebooks, magazines and audiobooks) for every 30 calendar days from the date of registration in the service and without commitment of permanence is 7.99 euros / month VAT included (the price will be 8.99 € / month VAT incl. from February 10, 2022). Price for non-Movistar customers € 8.99 / month VAT included (the price for non-Movistar customers will be € 9.99 / month VAT included from February 10, 2022).

This price increase is directly related to the price increase of the service itself that goes from 8.99 euros to 9.99 euros. At Movistar, they will continue to keep us the discount euro, but they have no choice but to apply the platform’s price increase. This is pretty much the same as what has happened with Netflix.

Can Microsoft Defender antivirus be disabled in Windows 11?

Published

on

microsoft defender has reached a spectacular level of maturing with windows 10. What started as a basic malware protection more serious, it has become one of the best antiviruses on the market, with the advantage that it is free, lightweight, and is already included and activated with the operating system. However, there are times that we may be interested in deactivating it, but is it possible to do it with Windows 11?

When we install a third-party antivirus, Microsoft Defender is disabled. However, there may be times when it is not deactivated properly, or there may be times when we simply want to temporarily disable the antivirus to install something that is detected as a false positive. It is also possible that, on a weak computer, Microsoft Defender consumes a lot of resources; especially when booting the system. There are lighter options, or if we don’t have the internet connected device, we may not even need the antivirus.

Windows 11 allows you to disable antivirus

In the Security section of Windows 11, luckily, we can disable many antivirus functions, including Real-time Protection, which is the one that usually causes problems when it comes to detecting false positives in files that we know are safe. This protection can only temporarily deactivate, but the rest of the protection modules can be permanently disabled.

So, effectively, we can temporarily disable the protection in Windows. To do this, we go to Settings in Windows 11, and there we enter the Privacy security tab. In there, let’s windows security. Once there, click on the option that says Antivirus and threat protection. In there, we just have to go to the part of managing the configuration of Real-time protection, and disable it.

It can also be permanently disabled

This deactivation is temporary, so if we want to deactivate it completely, we will have to go to the Local Group Policy Editor. To go to this section, it is necessary to disable the function of Tamper Protection within the same section where real-time protection is temporarily disabled.

To do this, we look for theLocal Group Policy Editor«, or gpedit.msc. In there, let’s Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Defender Antivirus. Once we get there, we look for the option «Disable Microsoft Defender Antivirus«. We double click, and we give Enabled. Now we just have to restart, and we will have the Windows 10 antivirus permanently disabled.

These are the best options we have for disable Microsoft Defender in Windows 11. Another option is to use programs like Defender Control or Configure Defender. This type of program allows you to manage a multitude of settings directly from the program and with a couple of clicks without having to navigate through the system settings.

These are the most realistic artificial voices of the moment

Published

on

We are used to hearing computer generated voices on different devices. In smart assistants, in gadgets, in ebook readers, on websites…. these voices are more and more present, but they continue to feel artificial, something that will cease to be so in a few years.

The fact is that there are already artificial intelligence engines capable of creating voice systems that are extremely natural, and today I will show you where to listen to them.

Is about vocalora.com, a web project that uses one of the world’s most sophisticated speech engines to simulate the voice of 5 different English accents, using 18 different voices in the process.

We can paste a text (in English) and select the desired voice from all the available ones. Once done, we will click on the Read Text button that appears on the right. If during the reading process we put a different voice, both will be heard at the same time.

Both male and female voices and children’s voices are available, and the result is so impressive that it is difficult to understand how our vacuum cleaner continues to speak with an 80’s movie voice.

We can try vocalora for free, but if we need readings of several hours, we will have to go through the premium subscription (about 20 dollars per month).

At the moment there are no projects with the same quality in Spanish, at least not on a website of these characteristics, available to the general public, although it is a sector that is advancing a lot, so it will not be long before we have something like this soon in our language.
