GDP is not enough anymore. Economists have corrected our development by smog or innovation, and yet we went up

GDP as a measure of economic development of countries is no longer enough - convince economists from the Polish Institute of Economics. Therefore, they took into account such indicators as air purity, development of innovativeness or safety on the streets and created their own index. Moderately optimistic, but giving much food for thought. "After the initial wave of enthusiasm, it turned out that GDP growth does not translate proportionally to the wealth and prosperity of all citizens" - noted members of the Polish Institute of Economics. The new Polish think-tank decided to create its own "Index of Responsible Development" . The IOR consists of three pillars. The first of these is the current prosperity, or per capita consumption, and the Gini index, which reflects the level of inequality. Beside him, the creation of future prosperity appeared. It includes research and development expenses, PhD student per capita expenses and number of trade

Chrome is expected to accelerate significantly. Developers will apologize with the old technology

Google's developers are working on implementing a "new kind of" cache into the browser that will make Chrome faster. Incidentally: it is an old technology, derived from WebKit. The Chrome browser uses a Blink rendering engine, but it is not a Google invention. In fact, it is almost identical to the mechanism created by Apple WebKit, known even from the Safari browser. Blink is a so-called WebKit forks, which means that one day Google said that it has a better idea for its further development and began to improve it on its own. Hence the name change, despite the fact that these solutions are very close to each other. The decision seems to be right. Blink seems to be a much more willingly used mechanism for processing websites than WebKit - it is used, inter alia, by Opera Software or Microsoft. However, this small volley was not without sacrifices. A web-based BFCache mechanism was devoted to Chrome, thanks to which we could instantly return to the

One of Apple s greatest values ​​is respect for privacy

Rather, I will not be Apple's customer. However, I would not have the slightest problem with trusting this company. The manufacturer of the iPhone has a lot of features that do not suit me, but Tim Cook fortunately still notices its greatest value. An interesting interview with Tim Cook, the president of Apple, appeared on NPR. Its main topic is the company's efforts to conquer the market of electronic devices that care for our health. As it is not difficult to guess, one of the topics of the conversation was the security of extremely sensitive and intimate medical data. Nowadays, the discussion on data protection is extremely important. On servers of various entities there are gigabytes of data about each of us. Where we are, what we buy, what texts we read, which pics we like. What is our gender, orientation, travel history or the status of our portfolio. For now, this data is used in a fairly innocent way. Thanks to them, the voice assistant understan

The Chomikuj.pl website is alive and even started to grow a bit

The shame of the Polish Internet can not be burned and just let you forget about yourself. What's worse, despite the resignation of Gemius, he began to grow a little lately. According to the Gemius study, in the first month of last year, the results of Chomikuj.pl were slightly worse. The site was used by 3.48 million real users, which translates into a range of 12.44%. Unfortunately, no one shouted then, last for a moment, how beautiful you are, because we were all hoping for declines. We counted. In January this year, the range was 12.86 percent, and real users were 3.67 million. Interestingly, the site has in the meantime resigned from placing Gemius codes, which means that it is probably underestimated. Of course, you can comfort yourself that the platform gets twice less stray Internet users than at the beginning of its existence, but it's still too many. Let's not be enchanted, the hamster should have a parrot on his shoulder, one wooden paw an

YouTube disables comments on videos with children

YouTube declares that already in tens of millions of videos has blocked the ability to add comments. And this is just the beginning. The action continues and is expected to expand more and more. The material under which the juveniles appear and which may be the subject of an unhealthy interest in pedophiles is under the microscope. A smiling little girl shows what she's doing each morning. He guides the viewer around his room, shows the mirror in which he looks, the wardrobe from which he pulls out his clothes, the hairbrush he is combing, the bed on which he sleeps. This is one of the dozen or so films published by her and theoretically there is nothing special about him ... and yet. All others have a few hundred, maybe a thousand visits, this one has several hundred thousand. The secret of his spectacular success is dispelled by comments. It's enough to look at it, and the word success will suddenly get a very bitter aftertaste. These at the top are ful

Chrome will apologize with the old technology to greatly speed up

Ukrainian language at all Euronet ATMs in Poland

In addition to Polish, English and German, since March this year, all ATMs and cash deposit machines belonging to the Euronet network in Poland will offer an interface in Ukrainian. The initiative is implemented due to the demand among customers who came from across the eastern border. Euronet announced that from the end of February 2019 it will be possible to operate devices in Ukrainian. The new function will be available at all ATMs and ATMs belonging to Euronet in Poland. Previously, ATM service was available only in Polish, English and German. Euronet decided to take this step due to the large number of Ukrainian economic migrants in Poland. According to various data, it can range from 1 to 2 million people, which is about 5 percent. total population of the country. Of course, all Ukrainian employees are a desirable group of clients for financial institutions. There are already many retail banks offering services in Ukrainian. The Ukrainian language in de

We choose the best set for Apex Legends and other network games

Precise mouse, fast keyboard and surround sound suppression surround. In Apex Legends you can play on weaker equipment, but why bother. Apex Legends is an incredible phenomenon of the last days. The new battle royale from EA in just 72 hours played as many as 10 million players , and this number is growing all the time. New people are attracted by efficient servers, a free-to-play model, as well as the dynamics of the game. To be the best, however, you need not only trained reflexes, excellent perceptiveness and eye-hand coordination. It will also be useful for equipment for seasoned frag devers, in which the promotion that the EURO RTV AGD store has measurably helped in the IEM period . I looked at the discounted products and chose the three most interesting from each category. Logitech G PRO - suppressed experience. We start with a high "C", ie headphones created with the participation of professional e-sportsmen. He added threes to the production of

CFexpress cards created by Sony can displace the SD standard in the future

Sony showed new CFexpress cards with a reading speed of up to 1.7 GB / s. This is a new medium that has a good chance of replacing future SD cards that are celebrating their twenty years. The SD standard was presented in the last century, and this year it will be equal to 20 years. When the SD card specification was approved, the world looked completely different. In 1999, we were delighted with modern special effects in the Matrix movie and listened to the Bomfunk MC's electronic beats Freestyler. The digital revolution was just around the corner, though we did not know how fast it would affect us. Many people have heard of the error of the millennium bug , which in 2000 was to have devastating consequences after the information systems go from the date of 99 to 00. In practice, however, our lives were mostly analogue. In our homes you could find analog cameras and video cameras based on Digital8 cassettes. We put CD-ROMs into computers, and the movies sta

Internet of Things will bind users to services. Blockchain will help them to be safe

According to the thesis, which Jay Bryan Nash put in his book entitled "Spectatoritis" published in 1932, thanks to technology, humanity has a chance to return to the time of the famous laziness of ancient Greece. This is to be possible due to the fact that users have a large number of technical devices significantly facilitating their lives. Due to today's technological solutions, this idea begins to take shape before our eyes. Wide access to low-cost programmable hardware devices and efficient wireless networks allows the user not only to enjoy the benefits of technology, but also gives an additional opportunity to create and adapt to their needs. Are currently developed technological solutions, such as the Internet of Things or Blockchain, the beginning to implement the vision of Bryan Nash? For sure they will give the opportunity to try to co-create this concept for each of us. What is the Internet of Things? It is believed that the creator of

Oral-B (lack) Mirror, which is a virtual dentist in every home

Oral-B at MWC 2019 brought something more than a new electric toothbrush. The display featured a futuristic mirror like the Black Mirror series. In the first reflex, you may be surprised that a company that associates with consumers mainly with toothbrushes and toothpastes appears at consumer electronics fairs - especially those where the first violin is played by mobility. However, Oral-B is a company for which smartphones are not the first. Electric brushes that connect with smartphones via Bluetooth of this brand have been available for years. At MWC 2019 , a new version of the Oral-B electric toothbrush, Genius X , was presented. From the Genius 10000 model , which is now the creme de la creme in the company's offer , the new generation is distinguished by the fact that thanks to artificial intelligence no longer needs a camera to check if its owner is properly brushing his teeth. Sensors are enough. Genius X toothbrush with AI support was not the onl

Trypophobia in practice, meaning Nokia and Xiaomi scare customers

Today, on one of Facebook's groups dedicated to Xiaomi's equipment, I came across a very interesting discussion. Internet users outraged her that the new Chinese case looked ... terrifying. At first I could not understand what was going on. Well, what's so terrible in this case? Only when delving into facebook discussion someone explained that it is about trypophobia . Trypophobia, because this has been called the ailment, is not an official phobia, although scientists are investigating it and why we are afraid of ... many small holes. This disgust is more biological than a cultural reaction - invoice typical for tryptophobia sometimes bring to mind wounds or infections, and the disgust associated with such things is to protect us from coming into contact with such a suspicious invoice. Equally credible trail is related to the signs of poisonous animals. A beautiful example is, for example, hapalochlaens, i.e. venomous octopus inhabiting the Pacif

Skuber tries to denigrate Uber, but he humbly changes his name

A recipe for success: offer services similar to Uber, copy his name, but add one letter in front for the unknow and wonder what might go wrong. Trying to describe what Skuber is doing, it is impossible to avoid using the paraphrases of all the bad startup pitches, because Skuber is really such a Uber for ... In this case for the owners of scooters. Cny Skuber and this unholy Uber. Neither fails to take on Polish entrepreneurs. Skuber connects the scooter owners with people who would like to use the scooter. His clients are supposed to move around the city quickly even during rush hour, and the drivers earn extra money, efficiently delivering packages (that is, outside taxi drivers, they also piss off couriers). Unfortunately for the company, her brilliant idea drew Uber's attention. The foreign company was supposed to pretend to be interested in cooperation with a startup, but the cities would go hand in hand with it towards the setting sun and put them i
