Microsoft announced Windows 10 for ARM-based devices back in December, but little information was provided about its limitations. Spotted by Paul Thurrott, Microsoft accidentally published a full list of its limitations last week. The list has since been removed, but not before it was cached. Windows 10 on ARM has the following limitations: Only ARM64 drivers are supported. As with all architectures, kernel-mode drivers, User-Mode Driver Framework (UMDF) drivers, and print drivers must be compiled ...

Wireless carriers advertise baseline numbers for coverage area and bandwidth speed, but they inevitably vary from place to place. You may get great service on one side of town, but see your signal drop as you drive down the street. That’s why the folks at OpenSignal crowdsource 50 billion measurements from more than 3.8 million smartphone and tablet users all around the world, and compile that data into a regular report: State of LTE. On Tuesday, ...
Oracle appears to have open-sourced DTrace, the system instrumentation tool that Sun Microsystems created in the early 2000s and which has been beloved of many-a-sysadmin ever since. As noted by developer Mark J. Wielaard, this commit by an Oracle developer shows that something is afoot. Big Red recently listed DTrace as one of the open source projects it hosts and has also created a new mailing list for discussion of what it's called a "Linux ...
When the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL were released, there was a rather interesting system app that was pre-installed on the two devices. Called “SMS Connect,” the app will presumably help you sync your SMS with a Chromebook. While the app is currently non-functional, its setup activity can be accessed which allows us to see exactly what the app does. Furthermore, we can also enable a flag on Chrome OS that reveals the ...

Android P, the next major version of Android, could be weeks away from an official unveiling, and although its core user-facing features are still unknown to us, we are discovering many little tidbits thanks to Android’s open source nature. We know that it’ll let carriers hide signal strength and define how they’re displayed in the status bar, for example, and we’ve uncovered evidence that Google may remove developer access to undocumented and hidden APIs. Bloomberg ...
With more than 187 million daily active users as of Q4 2017, Snapchat is one of the most popular mobile applications in the world. Unfortunately, it recently received a redesign that many have described as “ugly”. Case in point: An online petition urging Snap, Inc. to restore the app’s old design exceeded 1 million signatures. The new Snapchat began to roll out in November, but only a small subset of users in the beta channel ...

Twitter bots have been in the news over the past few years due to election meddling, not only in the United States but stretching across the globe.  There are, however, good and logical reasons for creating Twitter bots.  In order to see how easy it was to create a Twitter bot, for good or evil, I decided to create my own Twitter bot.  Five minutes of work and I had a working bot -- let's ...

BQ, a Spain-based budget smartphone vendor, has a presence in Europe and the US, but it tends to fly under the radar when it comes to media coverage. That’s partly because its smartphones aren’t particularly competitive against models from China-based rivals such as Xiaomi, Honor, and Motorola. However, in regions where it’s hard for customers to buy phones from the aforementioned companies, BQ has a foothold. The BQ Aquaris X and the Aquaris X Pro, two ...

The Apple rumour mill has buzzed with speculation that less-than-completely-astounding sales of Cupertino's latest iPhone, the X, mean it might not be long for this world. But Apple's now obliterated such theories with an overnight update to its app submission instructions that makes it plain the X is here to stay. "Starting April 2018, all new iOS apps submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK," the instructions now read ...
The last few years have seen a whole raft of IoT vanity projects, where connectivity for connectivity’s sake was the order of the day. Everything from connected loo-roll holders that warned when paper levels were low (if only there was a pre-existing, simpler way), to flip flops that had IoT capability crammed in and called ‘smart shoes’. The practical use of these types of products being next to zero, many consumers have been driven to ...

Huawei, the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, is preparing to launch the P20, P20 Plus, and the P20 Lite at an event in Paris on March 27th. The company was previously expected to launch the 3 smartphones, code-named “Emily,” “Charlotte,” and “Anne” respectively, during the upcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona. However, those plans were scrapped, allegedly due to fear of being overshadowed by Samsung’s Galaxy S9. As the P20 series announcement ...
The new Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are scheduled to launch on the 25th of February ahead of Mobile World Congress 2018. Since so much attention is placed on these two devices, it’s hard for Samsung to keep everything under wraps until the announcement. We’ve seen everything from hardware specifications to pricing to even minute software features being leaked. All of that information can be overwhelming, so here is a roundup of everything we ...
Android’s well-received Night Light feature, which was introduced alongside the Android N Developer Preview in 2016, inexplicably disappeared for certain devices in Android 8.1 Oreo. That motivated OEMs such as Sony to roll out replacements: the Xperia XA1 series featured the company’s own take on Android’s Night Light. Unfortunately, it’ll be removed in an upcoming Oreo update. Sony introduced the nightlight feature in a beta software build last year. (Sony’s Concept program is similar to ...

Readers with good memories may recall that when Windows NT was launched, it came in Workstation and Advanced Server editions, with the former fulfilling most duties of a server. There were no limits on TCP/IP connections, for example. Just as its developer Dave Cutler intended. When, a little later, Linux vendors packaged their distros into "Workstation" and "Server" editions it was just that: packaging – nothing prevented you turning a Linux Workstation into a Server ...
IoT devices are repeatedly exhibiting the same flaws creating a massive vulnerable attack surface which will inevitably lead to more major attacks. We’ve already seen DDoS attacks increase 91 percent over the course of 2017 due to vulnerable deployed devices, yet estimates suggest only 9 percent of IoT vendor budgets are spent on security. This pitiful investment is leading to shortcuts and a ‘live, die, repeat’ attitude to development that spells disaster for the user ...

We’ve made a lot of posts about Google’s Project Treble in the past few weeks. One of its most important (at least for us) consequences is that Treble-certified devices must be able to boot a generic version of Android called the Generic System Image (GSI). It has made running AOSP on devices like the Honor 8 Pro, Honor 9, or Huawei Mate 10 Pro a reality, though Treble-compatibility alone wouldn’t mean these popular devices wouldn’t get AOSP ...

While there has yet to be an official release of LineageOS 15.1, the LineageOS developers have been hard at work on the bring-up and several maintainers have released unofficial builds in the meanwhile.

The Essential Phone‘s issues have been well-documented. On the other hand, the phone does have its fair share of strengths, with its design being one of its best attributes. Its 5.7-inch 19:10 aspect ratio display has almost no bezels (although it does have an unconventional camera cutout), which makes the phone’s body more appealing than competitors such as the OnePlus 5T or the Google Pixel 2 XL. Its build quality is also noteworthy thanks to ...

Xiaomi smartphones rarely make their way outside of China and India, and that’s a shame because of their great value. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is perhaps the best Android One device to date, and the newly announced Redmi Note 5 & Note 5 Pro are already contenders for the best mid-rangers on the market. Xiaomi also releases several flagship devices in its Mi series of devices, but the one brand that has caught the world’s ...

Alongside this, the company’s network ...
