Windows 11 is he operating system what else novelties will receive from now on from Microsoft. Windows 10 will see little news, and the future of the operating system is Windows 11. Although the system has removed some very useful functions from Windows 10, there are also others that it is changing and improving. And now you can try a change that users have been asking for for years.

Yesterday, Microsoft released the build 22533 of the version Windows 11 Preview. Being part of the Insider program gives you access to the latest news that Microsoft integrates into the operating system. The one released this week includes an important novelty: redesign of the volume control.

New indicator adapted to Windows 11

One of the most annoying features that we find in Windows 10 is the volume indicator. This indicator, instead of appearing at the bottom of the screen, appears at the top left. By default, if we use Spotify to listen to music, or are we watching a YouTube video in Chrome, the volume panel extends its size, and also stays longer on the screen. This panel takes up a huge space and can be very annoying at times, although luckily it can be disabled in both programs.

These pop-up indicators have now been completely redesigned, and will appear on the bottom of taskbar, just above the icons. There will be indicators for brightness, volume, turn camera on or off or turn airplane mode on or off. All these indicators will appear when we make changes with the computer keys, doing things like changing the volume, the brightness, or activating the airplane mode. In addition, they integrate with the dark mode if we have it activated.

Goodbye to the annoying indicator born in Windows 8

With this, the indicators in the upper left part disappear after wearing 10 years with us. They were initially released with Windows 8 in 2012, and then the feature was “improved” to add multimedia controls. The new indicators, in addition to being activated with keys, they can be activated by clicking, and are interactive, so we can adjust them with the mouse as with the current ones.

It is important to note that this function is available only on the Preview version, which can present stability problems. Therefore, if you want to enjoy this feature on your computer, you will have to wait for the big update that Windows 11 will receive in autumn 2022. Microsoft is going to release only one big annual update to reduce possible compatibility problems, although in exchange for This will also introduce more news and changes with those updates. The changes will, in principle, be thoroughly tested to avoid compatibility issues.

Canadian company Frontiers North Adventures wants to replace northern tourism vehicles with electric vehicles

Published

Every year, thousands of ecotourists come to the Canadian village of Churchill on the shores of the Arctic Ocean for the chance to see polar bears. Frontiers North Adventures, a local travel company, uses 40-seat diesel-powered Tundra Buggy buses to transport tourists across the ice.

It recently announced plans to replace all twelve custom cars with zero-emission electric vehicles.

Unlike companies that can turn to the automaker in such cases, Frontiers North Adventures had to do most of the engineering for the electric version of the Tundra Buggy in-house.

Canadian company Frontiers North Adventures wants to replace northern tourism vehicles with electric vehicles

“The biggest problem we had with the first vehicle is that this has never been done before. We were working with donated batteries so we had to build our own systems and we had to do it all from scratch… it took a very long time because we had to figure everything out,” explains Jessica Burtnick, Manager of Frontiers North Adventures for Marketing and Communications. – We hope to redo the second [Tundra Buggy] it will be a little easier… and when we get to the 12th, we will reach perfection.”

The company expects the transition to electricity to be a boon for the environment, reducing CO2 emissions by 3,600 tonnes over the next 25 years and helping to insulate the business from fuel price fluctuations. In addition, cars will become much quieter.

Funding for the project came from dedicated Manitoba funds and in-kind support and technical services were provided by Red River Polytechnic College’s Transportation Technology and Energy Center. Batteries for the car were donated by electric bus manufacturer New Flyer from Winnipeg.

Although in “cloud” on Switch, Dying Light 2 delayed at Nintendo

Published

on

Techland announced that Dying Light 2 won’t happen on Switch at the same time as the other versions of the game. However, the version offered on the Nintendo console will not be practicable other than on the cloud, making this postponement somewhat curious.

The good technical performance of the first part on Switch could give hope for a sequel brought with so much effort. However, it was quickly confirmed that if the Switch was going to receive Dying Light 2 Star Human, it would only be a question of a version playable in “cloud”, or on the cloud.

The good news with these kinds of announcements is that no concessions are made to allow Switch audiences to enjoy the same experience as everyone else. The bad news is that it requires these players to have a stable and quality connection to keep the game fluid, not to mention queues to observe.

Dying Light 2 delayed on Switch: the release will take place within six months

At this point, suffice to say that Switch players no longer expect much from Dying Light 2, whose very output will take the form of a small miracle. On Wednesday, its developer Techland, however, managed to create disappointment in a lack of enthusiasm. Thus, while Dying Light 2 to be launched on Friday, February 4, 2022 on PC, Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X / S, the title will miss the start at Nintendo.

“Techland aims to deliver the game to the Nintendo Switch family within six months of the original date”.

The explanations for this postponement are very vaguely, if not at all, given by Techland, which is thus content to say that this decision has been taken “in order to provide fans with the gaming experience at the level that they deserve and that Techland wants to provide”.

This maximum six months delay would have been completely understandable if Techland had sweated liters of sweat to get Dying Light 2 in the nails of the Switch. But making potential buyers of “streaming” games wait does not encourage leniency. We add that if Dying Light 2 following the sad example of control and Hitman, the eShop sheet should make no mention of the price of the access pass, necessary to play the game beyond the free trial period.

Even before the release of the Radeon PRO W6400, it was clear that this video card would compete with Nvidia’s budget 3D card for professional use T600. In the slides of the official presentation of AMD’s new product, there is a comparison with the Nvidia T600, and we can say that these models are comparable in performance.
