Despite the fact that this has not been officially announced, the Nokia G50 smartphone received Android 12 firmware – the corresponding software under the number V2.160 is already being distributed in Finland and some other European countries. The firmware is just over 2GB in size and includes the November Android security updates, in addition to all the innovations and improvements specific to Android 12.

HMD Global is releasing new firmware in waves with country restrictions. So in some regions the software will have to wait. Recall that in December, Android 12 also received the Nokia X10 and X20, which debuted in April 2021 with Android 11. The first wave of firmware distribution included 35 countries.

The company of the former owner of Twitter launched Bitkey

The Block company of entrepreneur Jack Dorsey, co-founder and former head of the social network Twitter (now X), announced the launch of a hardware crypto wallet called Bitkey for storing Bitcoin. Bitkey is shaped like a black hexagon and is complemented by a mobile app and a set of tools for recovering private keys in case you lose your wallet, smartphone, or both devices. According to the creators, Bitcoin is a safe and easy way for people with varying levels of Bitcoin experience to take control of their finances, gain peace of mind and independence from any one organization.

Bitkey works based on a 2 of 3 multi-signature system: the client is given two keys – one of them is in the mobile application, and the second is stored offline in the hardware device. Through the application, you can make Bitcoin transactions from your smartphone, track your balance and manage security settings. The hardware key serves two main purposes: an additional layer of security for co-signing money transfers (based on the limit set by the client) and data recovery if the phone is lost.

The third key resides on the Bitkey server and is used for only two purposes: moving bitcoins for smartphone-only transactions (no hardware device) and recovering the wallet in case you lose your phone, hardware device, or both. Since Bitkey only has access to one key, and not two or three at once, an organization cannot access a client’s funds without the client’s knowledge. Bitkey is currently available for pre-order in 95 countries for $150, with deliveries expected to start in early 2024.

In the new test version of Windows 11, the Dev and Canary channels now display the number of characters at the bottom of the Notepad window, much like counting the number of words in a document in Microsoft Word.

After 40 years: Notepad in Windows 11 finally has a character counter

The Microsoft Windows Insider testing program team explained in a blog post:

When text is selected, the status bar displays the character count for both the selected text and the entire document. If no text is selected, the character count for the entire document is displayed, so you always have a clear idea of ​​the length of the document.

This is the latest addition in a line of changes to Notepad in 2023: the app recently added a new autosave option that lets you close a document without being confronted with a window prompting you to save every time. Microsoft has also added tabs and dark mode to Notepad.
