Windows 11 can finally run Android apps in test mode

Published

on

Microsoft has finally given at least a limited number of users access to a feature promised back in June – the ability to run Android apps on computers running the new Windows 11 operating system.

The feature has become available in the Beta channel for testing for members of the Windows Insiders program and with great restrictions – at the moment, only users from the United States can test it. There is no additional limitation for devices – Windows 11 supported devices with Intel, AMD, and Qualcomm processors.

Android apps can be searched through the Microsoft Store, but the Amazon Appstore is used to download and install. While not as extensive as the Google Play Store (over 3 million apps), the Amazon store will theoretically give Windows 11 users access to mobile games, social apps, and more. More than 600,000 apps are available on the Amazon Appstore.

However, there are currently 50 applications prepared for testing on Windows 11. These include mobile games, reading apps like the Kindle, and kids apps like Lego Duplo World or Khan Academy Kids. An Amazon US account is required to access the Amazon Appstore.

Android applications can run side-by-side with regular Windows applications, multitasking is supported with switching between applications using the Alt-Tab key combination, display in Task View (Task View), you can pin applications to the Start menu and taskbar, notifications will be displayed in the Windows Action Center, you can use the clipboard between the Windows app and the Android app. …

Linux kernel code already knows about AMD 96-core processors

Published

on

The latest Linux kernel patch has received the first confirmation of the existence of AMD processors with 96 cores.

More precisely, it talks about the new AMD Family 19h 10h-1Fh and A0h-AFh CPUs, which can contain up to 12 chiplets. Recall that each chiplet currently contains eight cores.

The code does not indicate which processors this information applies to, but, of course, we are not talking about consumer Ryzen. In this case, we are dealing with either server-side Epyc or Threadripper. And with regard to the former, everything agrees with the data of AMD itself.

Recall that the company recently talked about the Epyc Genoa processors on the Zen 4 architecture, which will just have up to 96 cores. As a result, we now know that the new Epyc chiplets will still contain eight cores, but the number of chiplets will increase. And in Bergamo processors, their number should reach 16 at all, if AMD does not change the chiplets for these CPUs.

WhatsApp Web has a new built-in sticker maker that lets you upload your own images and convert them into stickers that you can send to your contacts. To do this, you just need to click the attachment icon (paperclip), click Sticker, and then select the image.

A number of editing tools are provided to help you transform your original image into the sticker you want. These editing tools include emojis that can be pasted over a sticker, custom text, advanced cropping tools, and even the ability to add more images over the original.

The Sticker Maker custom feature is currently only available on WhatsApp Web, but coming soon to desktop apps as well. It is not yet known when the feature will be released on Android and iOS, but it can be expected.

WhatsApp has been working on improving its app for a long time and has introduced a number of new features in just the past few months. These include new security features such as instant calls and message complaints, the ability to hide the last visit from certain contacts, and even functionality that allows you to use WhatsApp on multiple devices without connecting to your smartphone.

Skoda Luniaq lunar rover presented with transparent aluminum windows and six wheels

Published

on

During the Czech Space Week, Xtend Design unveiled the Luniaq lunar rover, inspired by the Skoda Enyaq.

This electric rover will be able to carry up to four astronauts. Luniaq will be built on the NASA MMSEV (Multi-Mission Space Exploration Vehicle) platform, which has already been used to build other lunar rovers.

The Luniaq will receive large windows that allow it to assess the situation with a 180-degree viewing angle. Moreover, the windows are made not of glass, but of transparent aluminum, which is also more resistant to micrometeorites than glass. Layers of polyethylene add extra protection against radiation, and a lower front window allows drivers to view the moon’s surface directly in front of the vehicle.

The Luniaq will be equipped with stereoscopic cameras to scan the area and acquire 3D images, allowing for remote control of the vehicle. Michelin Tweel technology will be used to make large soft wheels.

Sustainable development can enable us to keep moving forward and expand the biosphere to other places in space. We would like to inspire people on how we could continue to progressively develop our technologies and one day live and travel in places other than Earth. Humanity is technically advanced enough that it becomes just a matter of our motivation and funding. A new era of electric mobility could continue throughout the solar system and beyond.
