UNESCO's World Heritage Committee met in Azerbaijan's capital Baku on Sunday to screen 35 new nominations. A group of ancient burial mounds in Osaka Prefecture, western Japan is one of them.
The nominations include the Mozu-Furuichi Tumulus Clusters consisting of 49 mounds that were built between the late fourth and late fifth centuries.
We have been hearing rumors that a new Fujifilm X-Pro3 could be in the works and now according to a new report from Fuji Rumors, one of the alleged new features of the upcoming camera could be the inclusion of a tilt screen. For photographers using other brands, a tilt screen is hardly groundbreaking.
However, as Fuji Rumors notes, Fujifilm has in the past been kind of resistant to the idea of tilt displays for its rangefinder cameras, like the X-Pro series. The company has employed the use of the feature in other models except its X-Pro series, the X100 series, and the X-E series, so this could be quite useful for some.
It has been rumored for a while now that Microsoft is working on a dual-display device which will be introduced under the Surface brand. A recent report had even suggested that the company had displayed a prototype of this device to employees. A new report claims that this unnamed device will have two 9 inch displays with 4:3 aspect ratio and that it will be capable of running Android apps.
The report claims that this device, codenamed Centaurus, will be able to run Android apps as that will be supported by Microsoft’s new Windows Core OS (WCOS) operating system. WCOS is essentially the platform for a more lightweight version of Windows OS. It’s this operating system that’s known as Windows Lite internally which will be used for dual-screen devices and competitors for Chromebooks.
Skype is introducing a new feature to its mobile apps in beta which many users might find to be quite useful. It has added screen sharing to both the iOS and Android apps. The feature isn’t as significant as some of the other features that Skype has introduced recently, such as background blur in video calls, but it’s quite meaningful nonetheless.
Those who have the latest Insider build will now be able to share their screen on an Android or iOS device during a call. In order to do that, they just need to tap on “…” and select Screen Share to get started.
Did you ever think it was possible for Android apps to appear on your Windows 10 PC? Microsoft is going to make this happen with its Your Phone app. The company demonstrated this app in October last year. It basically allows an Android phone’s screen to be mirrored to a Windows 10 PC. Microsoft has now started testing this functionality for PCs.
The latest updates for the Your Phone app allows Android users to mirror their phone’s screen directly to a PC. It’s making the “phone screen” feature available to Windows Insiders this week. Those who want to try it out will require the latest test builds of Windows 10 and the Your Phone app.
Google officially brought multi-window functionality to Android with Nougat. It was the first uniform implementation of this feature that had existed on Android in different forms and manifestations prior to Nougat. There is one major limitation, though. Apps can be opened in split-screen but Android doesn’t run the two apps simultaneously. This will change with a new feature called “Multi-Resume” which will come with Android Q.
As smartphone displays have become larger, they’re more than capable of allowing users to have two apps open at once. Android lets them do this but even though it allows for two apps to be on the screen at the same time, it actually retains one as active and pauses the other one.
Made famous by its in-display fingerprint technology and massive screen to body ratio, the Vivo V11 handset easily makes head turns and gather crowds around its innovative features and attractive design. It also has a selfie-minded 25 Megapixel front camera, along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of memory, all of this retailing at around $450. How does it feel to use the Vivo V11, and where does it fit in today’s smartphone landscape? Let’s find out.
If you're the type that has a lot of events scheduled, unlocking your phone and having to check the calendar constantly can be rather annoying, especially since those seconds add up over the course of the day. However with Android P, it seems that Google is changing that by displaying events on your lock screen.
This is according to the folks at Android Police who took a look at the second developer preview of Android P that was released recently. For those wondering why this looks a bit familiar, it is because it is similar in concept to the upcoming events feature found on the Google Pixel 2, but in terms of how the information is displayed, that's where it differs.
Mirroring your Android smartphone or tablet to a TV used to be quite an ordeal, which usually involved rooting the phone or using a bunch of cables. Not anymore, though, thanks to manufactures integrating Mirroring in their very own UIs, a slew of free apps on Play Store and Chromecast. In this tutorial, we are going to be showing you how to easily mirror your Android device’s display to your TV, both wirelessly and via cable.
If your TV supports WiFi then this is the way to go, if it doesn’t, then please skip to the second method. Before going any further, though, make sure your TV is on and that it is connected to the same WiFI network as your Android device. The process is very simple.
Google’s Chrome OS is expected to make its way to tablet form factors in the not too distant future which is why it would be wise for Google to offer more features that improve the Android app experience on Chrome OS-powered devices. Split-screen support is one of the features which can contribute to that and it’s now available for Android apps on Chrome OS in the Canary channel.
For those who are unaware, a Canary build is a newly compiled version of the software that hasn’t been properly tested. It’s meant for those who just want to see what’s new as soon as possible and discover the worst bugs. These builds are certainly not meant for public consumption.
