Musk is offering to buy Twitter shares for $54.2 a share. He paid so much himself, but since then the social network has been in chaos and without advertisers

Elon Musk knows how to attract investors to his projects – without this talent, neither SpaceX nor Tesla would exist. But whether he can now attract new investors to Twitter is a big question. Especially considering the price they ask for one share.

Musk is offering to buy Twitter shares for $54.2 a share.  He paid so much himself, but since then the social network has been in chaos and without advertisers

According to the Semafor resource, the director of the family office, Elon Musk, approached potential and existing investors with an offer to invest in Twitter. An email sent by Musk’s financial manager, Jared Birchall, offered to buy Twitter shares at $54.2 a share. Moreover, potential investors are given only two weeks to think (they expect to receive new investments before the end of this year).

Elon Musk was paying the same amount for each share of Twitter at the time of the company’s purchase. But keep in mind that from the moment when Musk headed the social network, chaos reigned in the company, more than half of the employees left it and large advertisers left. Twitter shares are not currently traded on the stock exchange, but if they were, it is highly doubtful that their price, taking into account all the shocks, would have been the previous $54.2 a share. So the offer to buy shares now, and even at such a price, looks at least bold.

Google has released a branded browser update. The latest version of Chrome 110 is now available to a limited number of users, but already belongs to the stable stage.

Chrome 110 was the first version of Google’s browser to have an adjusted release schedule with a more cautious approach to distribution. Google has now given access to Chrome 110 to a small number of Chrome 109 users, with a major release coming in a week. It is assumed that this approach will allow developers to identify problems with the browser and fix them before a large-scale launch.

Chrome 110 contains a rather long list of changes, but many of them are mainly relevant to developers, not ordinary users. For example, Chrome 109 was supposed to be the first version of the browser to implement an alternative to Google support for CHIPS (Cookies Having Independent Partitioned State), a proprietary addition to Cookies. It looks like CHIPS support has been moved to Chrome 110.

Of the notable innovations, you can now insert characters like “ß” and “ς” in domain names. These characters have been handled correctly in Firefox and Safari since 2016. Another innovation is a simplified procedure for setting up languages ​​in the built-in Google Translate service for translating pages. Translator settings are available directly in the browser settings at chrome://settings/language.

Chrome 110 also drops support for Windows 7 and 8.1. The browser requires Windows 10 or later to run.

Microsoft is determined users see annoying Windows 11 ads in

Microsoft has begun aggressively encouraging Windows 10 users to upgrade to the more modern operating system, Windows 11.

Microsoft is determined: users see annoying Windows 11 ads in full screen, leaving Windows 10 is not easy

Windows 10 users have been complaining online that a full-screen page has begun to appear on Windows 10 computers, offering to upgrade to Windows 11 and completely covering the desktop.

What’s more, Microsoft offers only two options for the obvious closing of this page, and both, in essence, mean “I agree.” The first button starts the update right at the moment you click it, and the second one allows you to schedule the installation at a later time. If you look closely, you can see a less noticeable “breaking the dead end” – a small link “Keep Windows 10”.

Needless to say, Windows 10 users are unhappy with Microsoft’s attempts to impose the operating system with tricky banners and optical illusions. Many users are likely to hit the first button that is visually highlighted with color without reading the message, let alone looking for the cancel button, just to get back to their desktop and do their work.

Luckily, Microsoft hasn’t launched an automatic update to Windows 11 yet, so the chances of you suddenly getting a new operating system are slim.

On February 1, Microsoft stopped selling Windows 10 licenses on its website.
