Microsoft showcased a new look and feel for Windows 11 UI elements during the January Windows Developer Program webcast.

Apparently, the new design was shown ahead of time, but enthusiasts and developers managed to notice it and take screenshots.

The new design is reminiscent of Windows Aero, which was used in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

With the release of Windows 8 and its successor Windows 10, Microsoft dropped support for rounded corners and the Aero Glass effect with translucent window title bars. Windows 11 has already added rounded corners to windows and other interface elements. It looks like the next major OS update should also add the Aero effect with transparent Windows 7-era title bars. The transparency effect will appear in both regular app windows and pop-up windows.

This innovation may come with the release of Windows 11 version 22H2, also known as Sun Valley 2, in the second half of 2022.

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users’ Permission

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users Permission

Apple has changed its policy for apps and services in the App Store that offer a paid subscription with auto-renewal.

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users' Permission

Until now, when a developer increased the price of an auto-renewing subscription, users had to confirm that they agreed to continue paying for the subscription at the new price. Otherwise, the subscription was automatically cancelled. Now, with the update, the increased cost of the subscription will be charged even without the consent of the user.

Of course, Apple has provided some restrictions to avoid abuse. For example, developers are still required to notify users of a change in the cost of a subscription, and re-charging the new cost is not possible without the consent expressed by the user.

In addition, price increases cannot occur more than once a year, and the maximum price increase is $5 for regular subscriptions or $50 for annual subscriptions. Users will also be able to easily cancel their subscription if they wish.

Google has revealed the previously classified innovations of the latest

In early May, Google released a system update for the Google Play online app store. As it turned out, this update contains much more interesting innovations than originally announced by Google.

Google has revealed the previously classified innovations of the latest Google Play update.  The update brought one of the features of Android 13 for smartphones with older OS versions

Recently, Google updated the note for the May update of Google Play, adding to it some additional innovations that were not previously mentioned.

Most notable among these declassified innovations was the Photo Picker feature. This feature, first introduced in Android 13, aims to restrict apps from accessing media files on the device. Instead of giving access to all the media on the device at once, Photo Picker gives apps access to only selected media.

Google’s official documentation for Photo Picker mentions that the feature will arrive on devices running Android 12 and Android 11 via a Google Play system update.

Another new feature coming with the Google Play May update is support for installing and using streaming apps on devices running Android Automative. In addition, the update also adds the ability for parents to install the launcher on devices registered with Family Link.

Elon Musk knocks down the price? He does not want to complete the deal to buy Twitter without an audit, which is impossible

Elon Musk knocks down the price He does not want

Elon Musk’s purchase of the social network Twitter is getting more and more interesting. The other day, the billionaire said that the number of fake and spam accounts on Twitter can exceed 90% of the number of daily active users, but in general he leans towards 20%.

Elon Musk knocks down the price?  He does not want to complete the deal to buy Twitter without an audit, which is impossible

Musk has already said he wants to audit, so he put the deal on hold for now. However, there appear to be problems with the audit procedure.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal wrote that it is unlikely that an external audit could be carried out.

Unfortunately, we do not believe that this particular assessment can be done externally, given the urgent need to use both public and private information (which we cannot share). Outwardly, it is even impossible to know which accounts are counted as daily active.

Agrawal also said that Twitter is actively fighting spam accounts, blocking more than half a million accounts daily. He reiterated that the company has been counting such accounts for many years, and the rate has always been less than 5%.

Musk said that the CEO of Twitter publicly refused to provide evidence of such indicators, which is why the deal cannot move towards completion.

It is not yet clear how this story will end, but it is likely that all this will allow Musk to buy Twitter for significantly less than the original $ 44 billion. Perhaps from the very beginning, Musk had such a tactic, and now he adheres to it.
