At the end of last year, Xiaomi officially introduced the new wireless computer mouse Mi Portable Mouse 2, which was very quickly funded, and now it is on sale in China, where it is sold for less than $ 15.
The Xiaomi Mi Portable Mouse 2 supports simultaneous connection to two computers via 2.4GHz and Bluetooth 4.2 LE. Users can easily switch between the two computers simply by pressing the mode switch button on the top of the mouse. The compact Xiaomi Portable Mouse 2 supports 4-stage DPI adjustment (1200, 1800, 2400 and 4000 DPI). The body is made of aluminum alloy, the mouse is equipped with low noise buttons.
The mouse can be used with compatible TVs, tablets and other devices. The battery lasts for about a year.
Xiaomi Mi Portable Mouse 2 supports Microsoft Windows 10, Apple macOS 10.10, Android 6.0 and newer OS versions.
Google degrades in Google Photos the definition of the place where the photo was taken
Google has warned users about a new location policy for Google Photos (Google Photos).
Google Photos will stop using a user account’s location history to determine where specific pictures were taken, according to a new support document. This policy will apply to users who have opted out of sharing location data for the camera app for privacy reasons.
Until now, if you didn’t allow the camera app to use your current location, Google Photos used two methods to roughly estimate where you took the photo. First, the app will try to identify visible landmarks in your photos, and second, it will use your location history to narrow down the area.
However, now Google Photos will rely solely on trying to identify landmarks in photos. As you can easily guess, this method is noticeably less reliable.
Google notes that the change has already started rolling out to some Google Photos users, with a full rollout expected in the coming months.

The team of the popular WhatsApp messenger announced the launch of an interesting innovation – avatars.
According to the developers, avatars will allow users to create a “digital version of themselves.” A variety of combinations of hairstyles, facial features and images are available for the avatar. You can use your avatar as your WhatsApp profile picture. Moreover, during installation, you can choose one of 36 facial expressions and actions.
In addition, a selection of personal stickers is created with the avatar. The developers also talked about how the avatars will develop. Now work is underway on light and shadow, hair textures and other details.
Avatars are becoming available to WhatsApp users gradually and will eventually appear for everyone.
Reading mode for the entire system and the ability to transfer the digital key from the car. Google updated Android
Google has introduced several new features for the OS without updating the version of Android.
For example, now Android has a Reading mode. This is a fairly serious innovation, which even requires a separate application, which is already available on Google Play.
The new mode is designed to optimize the reading process, allowing you to adjust the contrast, speech synthesis, font size and type, as well as highlight the main thing on the page. In general, Google says that the mode is intended for users with visual impairments and dyslexia, but people without the mentioned problems will be able to use some of its functions.
The main highlight of the new mode is that it works at the system level, which means that all kinds of settings can be configured, regardless of the application used.
Google also made available a speed-controlled text-to-speech feature with a choice of “natural-sounding voices” to choose from, and support for English, French, Italian, and Spanish.
In addition, the digital car key function has been updated, which allows you to use your smartphone instead of a car key. Now users can share these same digital keys. It is possible to view activity and control access to the machine. Currently, this feature is only supported by Pixel 6 and iPhone smartphones, but the list will expand in the near future.
