Microsoft is determined to expand efforts in creating owners focused on servers, expanding offering services on Azure platform. And one of the most recent innovations in the segment was the hiring of a former employee of a rival.

According to the Bloomberg, the company is now the new home of Mike Filippo, a designer specializing in semiconductors who in the last two years was in Apple. A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed the signing, but an official announcement has yet to be made by the brand.

Experienced in the field, he has also worked at Intel, where he worked for five years, and Arm, where he spent a decade helping to develop technologies used in cell phones and other mobile devices.

The investment makes sense: just at the beginning of the pandemic, demand for Microsoft Azure grew by 775% with more and more people, companies and other institutions depending on remote platforms. In addition to the service, the company would also be developing custom processors for use in Surface products.

Word of mouth in action: Tesla does not spend money on advertising, car owners do it for her

Published

on

Tesla has posted on Chinese social media that its ad spend is almost zero. Customers are asked to remember the last time they saw a Tesla ad on billboards, in banner ads on websites, or on television.

Tesla claims that it deliberately does not advertise its vehicles, relying only on word of mouth. We are talking about the free and voluntary distribution of information about Tesla cars from satisfied users to their friends, acquaintances and Internet users around the world.

Earlier, Elon Musk said: “We will focus on improving the performance and quality of Tesla products. We believe that the best way to sell products is to allow users themselves to spread the word about them.”

In addition, Tesla noted that the cost of most vehicles on the market is made up of manufacturing costs, component costs, research and development costs, and quite a lot of marketing costs. At the same time, Tesla considers it unreasonable that car owners should pay for their advertising.

According to Tesla, when a product is really good, people themselves will actively recommend it. Therefore, the company focused on research and development, as well as increasing the pace of production.

The direct selling model allows for interaction with customers, allowing consumers to learn more about a car from Tesla product experts before making a decision to buy a car.

WhatsApp improves voice notes with this novelty

Published

on

Voice or audio messages on WhatsApp are increasingly used by everyone. They are the ideal alternative if you are in a hurry and you can’t start writing at that moment or the perfect solution for those who have difficulties when typing with the mobile keyboard. However, sometimes those audio messages are endless and WhatsApp is improving the features available for the audio notes that we send through the instant messaging app.

With the arrival of WhatsApp audios came a new world of possibilities. Many people no longer write messages and respond at all times by audio, to the point that it was becoming hell for many. There are those who hate sending audios on WhatsApp and those who tell you their life in verse with endless messages that exceed ten minutes or more. To solve this inconvenience, WhatsApp enabled the possibility of speed up audio to save time and be able to listen to messages faster. Options are 1x normal speed, 1.5x speed increased by 50%, and 2x double playback speed. Now WhatsApp is implementing another very useful feature related to voice recordings.

Pause and resume WhatsApp audios

WhatsApp is implementing a very useful feature for users of the app in its web/desktop version: the possibility of pausing and resuming the audios that they send us. When the instant messaging app launched the download option for the official WhatsApp Desktop beta program, it also included the possibility of listen to the voice audios before sending them. Users will now also be able to pause and resume voice recordings.

As you can see in the screenshot, there is a new pause button (in the previous version there was a stop icon) that allows you to pause the voice memo. Audio can now be heard before sending, deleting, or resuming recording.

An improvement that is already available in WhatsApp for iOS, WhatsApp Desktop beta 2.2201.2 and that will soon be available in WhatsApp beta for Android. Since this new feature has been rolled out to some beta users, it may take some time before it can be enabled on your WhatsApp account. On the other hand, WhatsApp continues to work on improving voice notes by developing a new feature that will allow you to listen to the audio, even if you are not in the conversation. In this case we still do not know the exact date on which it will be available. What do you think of this new improvement of the voice notes that WhatsApp has added?

Xiaomi 12 Pro is a temporary top. Xiaomi top manager hinted at the imminent release of the super-flagship

Published

on

Wang Teng Thomas, who until recently led the development of new Xiaomi smartphones, published a note on Weibo that hints at the imminent appearance of a super-flagship – a model that will be one step higher than Xiaomi 12 Pro. And a special emphasis in it will be placed on the camera.

Xiaomi 12 Pro is a temporary top.  Xiaomi top manager hinted at the imminent release of the super-flagship

The top manager published a photo of an XL mug (Big Cup XL) – and this is a reference to the previous Xiaomi code designations that were used in the Mi 11 line: Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro appeared under the code name Big Cup, and Mi 11 Pro appeared under the name Super Big Cup 11 ultra. The source believes that in this way Wang Teng Thomas hints at the release of the successor to the iconic Mi 10 Extreme Commemorative Edition and Mi 11 Ultra, which flashed in the DxOMark camera rating. So the new model, whatever it is called, should consolidate the success of its predecessors and settle in the DxOMark top. But what kind of model will it be?

There are various rumors going around. On the one hand, logically, Xiaomi 12 Ultra should come out – the direct successor to Mi 11 Ultra. On the other hand, rumors suggest that Xiaomi will not have such a model, and instead Mix 5 and Mix 5 Pro will be released in early spring. And just Mix 5 Pro will become the very camera phone that will probably be able to move the Huawei P50 Pro from the first position in the DxOMark mobile camera rating.
