Apple Pay has jumped PayPala and looks at him in advance

On the occasion of presenting the financial condition of Apple Tim Cook, perhaps the bottom of his chest when he discussed Apple Pay results. According to the head of the giant from Cupertino their biggest competition - PayPal was to be far behind. Presentation of quarterly results of Apple was a good opportunity to talk with investors about specific products and services. In this also about the prospects of the Apple Pay payment system. Apple's digital wallet absolutely has no reason to complain. On the contrary. Now, almost one billion transactions are carried out with this method every month. It is more than twice as much as in the comparable period a year ago. Apple Pay leaves PayPala behind In June Apple Pay came to another 17 countries. Thus, this payment method is already available in 47 countries. We will pay Apple Payem all over the European Union. Such progress has caused - according to the head of Apple - that in the last quarter Apple Pay overto

iPad Pro with Android? This is Galaxy Tab S6, which brings us a bit closer to this dream

Samsung has just presented the successor tablet Galaxy Tab S5e . This equipment is to be an alternative to iPad Pro and iPad Air. His biggest advantages are the desktop mode of work and access to the Play Store. Galaxy Tab S6 is basically something more than a tablet. This device can be easily described as a hybrid, among others thanks to an attached (sold separately) keyboard and stand, allowing the device to work in notebook mode, and thanks to the Dex mechanism in the Samsung version of Android, allowing the user to work with applications on the windows on the desktop desktop. It is worth noting that, unlike the previous tablet, the keyboard for Galaxy Tab S6 is equipped with a trackpad. For some time, Samsung has been trying to modify the interface of the Android version it develops so that it works as well as possible in desktop mode. And indeed, long before the Google edition, the Samsung system is equipped with an interface that supports the use of the c

We re checking the best video montage app for Android

The installation of films on a smartphone does not have to be an amateur domain. Adobe Premiere Rush and Galaxy S10 + Performance Edition is a combination showing that the video editing on your smartphone can be really advanced. Until recently, the installation of films on a smartphone was only useful for less demanding clips, such as holiday music videos. Although the Android system has many applications for assembly, almost all of them are very poor in relation to real desktop programs. Applications are based largely on automation, which on the one hand allows you to quickly straighten out a simple clip from the holidays, but on the other, it gives you little control over the final look of the movie. For people assembling in desktop programs, mobile applications looked almost like toys. Adobe Premiere Rush is an application that immediately attracted attention. Adobe Premiere Rush appeared on Android at the end of last year and immediately caught the atten

HASZTAG OF THE DAY: People write #jestemLGBT. And then they add "I am a pastor", "you pass me by every day", "I am setting you up for medical appointments" ...

Thousands of people provide their posts in social media with hashtags #jestemLGBT and #jestemzLGBT. They show that they are ordinary people, not a Machiavellian ideology. I am a girl who throws garbage in the same way as you do. He buys raspberries at the market. He gets up in the morning after the fifth alarm clock. Which has no patience. You pass me everyday. I live next to you. I'm Lgbt. I am myself - she writes on instagram @ k2_liv. Boy from the neighborhood, a girl you met during a walk with a dog, art teacher of your bubble and a hairdresser who always has a sticker for him as a reward for his patience. They all declare that they are LGBT and they want to show you that they do not bite, they are not scary, you know them for a long time, you like them, you admire their work and live next to them. Sometimes they lend you coffee sugar. #jestemLGBT I am an evangelical (Calvinist) pastor, I teach people that God loves everyone, I give weddings to LGB

August will bring great games under PS Plus and Games with Gold - a full list

Every month, Sony and Microsoft make free games available as part of their basic loyalty subscriptions. In August, both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners have something to enjoy. When buying a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, it's worth remembering that only some of the functions of these consoles are included in the price. When you try to experience premiums , understood by Sony or Microsoft even if you can play online, you should be prepared for spending over PLN 200 annually. To sweeten it a bit, both companies make new free games available to subscribers every month. As long as we pay the subscription, we can play full versions of these games without any restrictions. The quality of the games available varies. Sometimes they are iconic classics, with very rare still hot news, and most often they are low-budget independent games. In the coming month, however, we will get really good titles from both companies. Let's start with the market leader. PS Plus fo

SEGA Mega Drive Mini console test - the biggest disadvantages and advantages of the new 90 s retro platform

I played on the SEGA Mega Drive Mini console, sipping orange and chewing Turbo gum. The new retro platform will appear on store shelves in October. In turn, the SEGI representative has already flown to Poland, along with a miniature console under his arm. Will it be hit or put? The distributor of the SEGA Mega Drive Mini console in Poland has been Cenega. This is an interesting experience for a company that previously dealt only with software . Distributor approaches the task dead seriously, the best example of which are very unusual tests of the console in the field. Cenega rented a flat in Warsaw and then decorated it in the 90's. There were Turbo gums on the table, bottles of orangeade in bottles, and somebody could eat all their fingers. In the center of the apartment it was - SEGA Mega Drive Mini console connected to a tiny CRT TV with a giant "back". The TV was planted in a pot. Only the lace tablecloth was perfect. By the 1990s, one could

Konami finally bred eggs, which best demonstrates the eFootball PES 2020 demo

Some time ago I claimed that changing the name of Pro Evolution Soccer to some eFootball is stupid, but it really is a different game. I just started the PES 2020 demo. If it were not for being a big fan of the series, I probably would not even have guessed at the first moment that this was the next edition of the Japanese series. eFootball There is not all that Japanese kitsch and crap, as if the game was designed for the seaside machines "Ustka 1997". From the old interface, only what was quite good was left, i.e. a way to edit the composition. Gradients have come, fashionable colors, lightness. The game, on the pitch, does not look like PES. Seems it is PES, old and good, and yet somehow you do not feel this Japanese. Well, maybe a bit, because having fun in a demo we start with some absurd camera. Konami would not be himself if he were not surprised. But after changing to the standard view of the match ... do not feel this Asian spirit. The game l

The bike, which can not be stolen, was stolen in 60 seconds. Yes, that s it

The manufacturer claims that he created an electric bike that can not be stolen. It has a built-in SIM card, wheel lock and tracking via GPS. The journalists carried out a test in which ... they unscrewed the tracking module and stole the bike. We will still have to wait for the revolution. Stealing bikes is a huge problem, as I found out in primary school when my own single unit disappeared from the basement. It was a big experience and an even greater lesson. Today I drive everywhere with U-lock fixing, although I am aware that it can be overcome. However, U-lock is supposed to act as a disincentive to a potential thief. However, there are producers who approach the topic from the technological side. VanMoof, a Dutch (and how!) Bike manufacturer, created an electric two-wheeler, which apparently can not be stolen. The equipment costs 2800 euros, looks like a dream and has a whole sea of ​​electronics inside. How do you protect your bike that you can not steal?

Spotify is not just a music service anymore. The investment in podcasts was a great move

Spotify is more than just a music service. This is also seen in earnings. The largest streaming website in the world has changed, and most users probably have not even noticed it. What's different readers of Spider's Web who have known for months that Spotify is a new podcast. Since the service for the first time introduced programs to its library, more than two years have passed. During this time Spotify not only invested hundreds of millions of dollars. in studios producing podcasts , but also completely changed the stylistic weight of its mobile application , shifting it from close concentration to music, to the balance between music and broadcasts. Soon, Spotify also plans to plow the traditional radio, joining the daily playlists with interleaves intertwined with information from the world. The effects of these activities were already visible in the previous financial report , which revealed that the service eventually bounces off the bottom. Of cou

Microsoft refreshes the Windows Calculator. Because details matter

The calculator is probably the most basic usable application you can imagine. This does not mean that you can not improve it a bit. The system application with Windows 10 will recover lost features. In fact, even the word "computer" suggests that it is a counting machine. Someone might say that the Hello World application is the simplest example that illustrates what computer programs actually are. Personally, I do not agree - Hello World does not serve anything and will not be useful. Unlike the calculator. This one available in Windows 10 has become very useful. It converts not only simple actions, but also converts measurements and weights, and even allows you to convert monetary amounts based on current currency exchange rates. The application refreshed for the new Microsoft system, however, lost two very fundamental functions. Basically completely unrelated to the counting itself. Refreshed Windows 10 Calculator - with always on top and compact

Incognito mode in Google Chrome has finally stopped tracking users. You can now download the new version of the browser

Google has just showed a new version of its browser - Chrome 76. What's new? This time, there were no revolutions and hidden possibilities that would trigger the "wow" effect. The new version of the Chrome browser at first glance does not differ from the old one, but there are a few changes that we will certainly appreciate in the time perspective. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1nosVzVbB4 Chrome 76 - what's new? The biggest change has come in the back; Chrome 76 by default blocks Flash and by default does not follow the user in Incognito mode , which will certainly please many people. Flash support can still be enforced in the browser - it will go out for good next year. The new Chrome also allows webmasters to implement automatic dark mode on pages, so that in the dark mode the content will be dark, not just the navigation bars. A good change. From the usable side, another important thing has changed - if a site offers PWA for its servic

NASA s forecast: a solar storm will hit the Earth

The US space agency NASA predicts that between July 31 and August 1, a strong solar storm may reach our atmosphere. What is this phenomenon? Solar storms can be very spectacular. This phenomenon is called coronal mass ejections (CME), and its result is the separation of huge clouds of plasma, consisting mainly of electrons and protons from the surface of the Sun. Those from the clouds that fly in our direction, reach the surface of our planet usually after about 20-70 hours and encounter the Earth's magnetosphere. That's how magnetic storms arise. This phenomenon is potentially dangerous for all kinds of electronic devices and power grids. It also results in beautiful northern lights. Solar storm - we discovered this phenomenon quite recently The first solar flare, which is also the harbinger of the storm, was observed in 1705 by Stephen Gray. Another documented observation, however, took place over one hundred years later. The flare was noticed in 1859

The accountant was right again - Apple is not just an iPhone anymore

He is not a marketing guru, he does not grab crowds with charismatic speeches, and during his tenure no new product was created that would change the world. And yet again, he made the financial of his company's pivot. Whatever you say about him, Apple's boss, Tim Cook, is an outstanding financial strategist. Only a year ago, it seemed that Apple had a gigantic problem. Apple's business was over 65 percent. dependent on the iPhone. The sale of iPhones, however, dropped sharply, which reflected not only on current results, but also on the climate around the American company, which - as we know - nowadays defines the valuation of the organization's value. For many companies such a situation would be a kiss of death, not to mention such a powerful financial colossus as Apple from over 50 billion dollars. quarterly revenues. Tim Cook, however, financially defended Apple again. Again, let us remind you that the company left by Steve Jobs in 2011 was not

This disk is so good that I had to buy it after testing. Samsung X5 - review

Rarely after short tests I am so impressed with the equipment that I have to buy it. In this case it was different and I had an important reason for it. In fact, not so much the reason as the mistake I made a little over 2 years ago, buying the cheapest version of iMac 27 in the promotion, equipped with completely unworthy of this equipment (and prices) Fusion Drive. Initially, its performance was relatively satisfactory, but with time - and with the increase in use intensity by me, among others Lightroom and Photoshop - satisfaction with the hybrid solution has dropped drastically. And when I started looking for a solution, it came to me by chance to test Samsung X5, i.e. portable SSD with NVMe interface, connected via Thunderbolt. What did he promise? That for less money than the original payment to the smallest SSD in iMac, I will have an equally fast drive. I set the system on it and quickly found out that it was what I was looking for. I knew I had to hav
