As part of Patch Tuesday, the recently released Windows 11 2022, also known as version 22H2, received its first cumulative update, with many fixes for issues that were present in the initial release. The update comes under the number KB5018427. Last year’s version of Windows 11 21H2 received an update under the number KB5018418.

The update contains several fixes, but also something completely new, namely support for notification icons on the taskbar and the Widgets panel for emergency breaking news and alerts. In addition, there are fixes for the Microsoft Store and many other areas, including the recently acknowledged Windows Hello crash by Microsoft.

Update KB5018410 is available for Windows 10 versions 21H1 and 21H2. The focus here is on OS security updates.

Updates KB5018454 and KB5018474 are available for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. They bring a fix for issues with Linux VMs and also fix the date for Daylight Savings Time in Chile.

As a reminder, support for Windows 8.1 will continue until early 2023, while free support is no longer available for Windows 7. Microsoft ended support for the Windows 7 operating system two years ago on January 14, 2020. For corporate users, Microsoft offers paid extended support for Windows 7. They can receive security updates as part of the Windows 7 ESU program (Extended Security Updates, extended security updates) until January 2023. In 2021, the price of this service has increased to $50 per computer, and in 2022 to $100 per computer.

“This is another unspoken sign of disrespect,” the Twitter office equipped sleeping quarters for “hardcore” employees

This is another unspoken sign of disrespect the Twitter office

According to Forbes, earlier this week, Twitter employees discovered several sleeping areas in the company’s San Francisco office. They were organized in conference rooms, where beds and bedside tables with lamps appeared.

The whistleblower and Twitter said employees were given no explanation for the change and suggested that the beds are for the remaining “hardcore” employees so they can stay overnight in the office. “This is another unspoken sign of disrespect. No one discussed this with us,” said one of the employees.

Last month, CEO Elon Musk gave the thousands of employees remaining at the company the option to leave or stay on the condition that they work hard under Twitter 2.0. Since taking over as owner and CEO, Musk has fired at least half of Twitter’s employees, with many leaving of their own accord.

Another source, who wished to remain anonymous, suggested that there could be “four to eight of these bedrooms per floor,” adding that “they look comfortable.”

One room’s trash bin was reportedly filled with trash, meaning someone had already slept there: “People are already working late into the night, so that kind of makes sense.”

According to Business Insider, the American billionaire and owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, brought quite a few people to the company, among whom were employees of his other companies and relatives.

We reported this morning that Elon Musk briefly lost his title as the richest man in the world on Wednesday, according to Forbes.

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place

Google has warned users about a new location policy for Google Photos (Google Photos).

Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place where the photo was taken

Google Photos will stop using a user account’s location history to determine where specific pictures were taken, according to a new support document. This policy will apply to users who have opted out of sharing location data for the camera app for privacy reasons.

Until now, if you didn’t allow the camera app to use your current location, Google Photos used two methods to roughly estimate where you took the photo. First, the app will try to identify visible landmarks in your photos, and second, it will use your location history to narrow down the area.

However, now Google Photos will rely solely on trying to identify landmarks in photos. As you can easily guess, this method is noticeably less reliable.

Google notes that the change has already started rolling out to some Google Photos users, with a full rollout expected in the coming months.
