How to change your default browser on iOS and iPadOS

As someone who uses iOS and Android, there are definitely pros and cons to both platforms. One of the biggest benefits of Android is that it is open source and extremely customizable. From changing the system font to using a different launcher or using a third-party SMS app instead of the default option, the possibilities are truly endless.

Related reading

Apple looks like it’s finally opening up the walled garden just a little, with the introduction of widgets, the App Library, and now, the ability to change a few more default apps. While you still can’t enter Jiggle mode and place your icons anywhere, having the option to add some widgets and change some default apps is still refreshing.

You no longer need Apple apps

One of the best things about apps like Safari, Chrome, and Firefox is that they can sync across all your devices. However, when it comes to iOS and iPadOS, you’re stuck using Safari or Safari’s WebView every time you click a link in an email, from a friend, or elsewhere.

Speaking of emails, the same problem has happened with the Mail app. Although you can download and use a third-party mail app, whenever you click on a “reply to” link, you will be directed to Apple’s mail client.

That’s no longer the case with iOS and iPadOS 14, as Apple has made it possible for you to change your default browser and email apps. Finally, you can use Google Chrome on your iPhone, start browsing some web pages, and then open those same pages on your computer, or vice versa.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Apple make it possible for users to change the default app. In 2016, Apple made it possible for developers to bring their custom keyboard apps to iOS. The biggest difference here is that while you can use these keyboards for about 95% of your interactions, iOS still limits the ability to use them every time a password needs to be entered. When that happens, iOS returns to the default keyboard and then returns to whatever custom keyboard app you’ve set as the default.

How to change your default browser in iOS 14

So far, we have only discovered that Google Chrome is the only app that allows you to change the default browser. And the settings for this are not exactly in the same place where you would expect them to be. Instead of heading to Safari settings, you should actually head to the Chrome app settings. Here’s how you can change your default browser.

  1. Discharge Google Chrome from the App Store.
  2. Open the application and sign in with your Google account.
  3. Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  4. Scroll down until you find Chrome in the application list and select it.
  5. Tap on Default browser app.
  6. Select Chrome of the list.

Once you’ve changed, you won’t have to do anything else. Simply move Chrome to your home screen (if it’s not already there) and enjoy! From now on, every time you open a link from another app, a new Chrome tab will open, instead of another tab in Safari. Additionally, we know that an update to the Firefox iOS app is in the works, enabling this feature, but that update is not available yet.

Messi’s golden foot arrives in Japan

Remember the golden tree of Walt Disney that we told you about last December? The jewelery Ginga Tanakastrikes again, this time it is the gold reproduction of the Argentine footballer’s left foot Lionel Messi.

The sculpture that you can see in the photo above has a weight of approximately 25 kg and a value of 4 million euros, created to remind all MESSI fans of his fourth Golden Ball won at the beginning of January. For those who have money to waste, a miniature of the sculpture is also available at the jewelery shop for a cost of 32 thousand euros and a cast of the footbed for 72 thousand euros.

Only 50 copies of the miniature and 100 of the footbed are available, so seize the fleeting moment (in an ironic sense of course). Messi’s brother Rodrigo, declared: “an impressive work from every point of view”. The Disney tree was spectacular even if very, very expensive, but Messi’s foot I think is a sculpture in bad taste. What do you think about it? I decided to deal with this topic, because there are numerous football and Japan enthusiasts, a way to combine business with pleasure as they say.

Returning to the sculpture, it is only available in Japan at the jewelry store. The question I ask myself, and I think I’m not the only one to ask, is “who is willing to spend a similar amount for a foot of gold?” There are some companies that create expensive gadgets or devices to offer everything to charity, but this is not the case with the jewelry store in question. If you are in Japan and if so, lucky you, you can see the sculpture live by going to the jewelry store. It was decided to make Messi’s foot, as he is one of the best players in the world, one of the few to have scored numerous goals during his career, some of them in spectacular fashion or so they say.

Mexico: will we be the next emerging leader in technological innovation?

I remember an article published in a Mexican newspaper at the beginning of the year 2000, which proposed Guadalajara as the new Silicon Valley from Mexico. Indeed, since the mid 90s, technology manufacturing had been concentrated in the nearby area, which of course generated a significant economic impact in the city and state. Companies such as Motorola, Hewlett Packard, Nokia and others, now being more focused on the design phase, outsourced their manufacturing to Mexico.

I thought at that time that although the note was well intentioned, the comparison did not make sense, since Silicon Valley had been formed by pursuing leadership in the innovation and development of added value, while in Guadalajara manufacturing continued to be promoted, exploiting cheap labor, generating low value jobs.

At that time I started my second venture, Simiteland I decided to read a little about how this special place in the United States was created and if it was possible to recreate it in Mexico.

It turns out that in the 40s and 50s in California, Frederick Terman, Academic Director and Dean of the Stanford School of Engineering, began fostering an entrepreneurial culture, motivating his students and alumni to create new companies and innovate based on their studies. Among them, he supported William Hewlett and David Packard to form one of the first private technology firms, a model that he repeated with Varian Associates and other technology companies created by Stanford graduates, thus initiating an environment of collaboration between academia and industry that revolutionized the technological development and encouraged a boom period for innovation.

One of these companies, Shockley Transistor Laboratory (later Shockley Semiconductors) is credited with generating the Silicon Valley “boom.” The company was founded by a Terman student, William Shockley, Nobel Laureate in Physics and co inventor of the transistor, in 1956. In 1957, in a dispute between Shockley and his employees, many of them resigned and formed Fairchild Semiconductor, a company that It grew enormously until the mid 60s and from which the first spin offs of technology companies around the Stanford campus emerged, which in turn generated even more spin offs, starting a cycle that continues to this day. Success had been democratized, having talent addressing a real need in the market was all that was necessary to generate wealth and praise. And the market flourished. Silicon Valley had been created.

It did not take long for the money from the northeastern United States to realize the great generation of opportunities that was occurring in the region and they began to generate, locally, risk investment funds (Venture Capital) that in turn further encouraged investment. creation of new companies. The government at the local, state and national level added to this, generating incentives and alternative financing programs to strengthen the nascent entrepreneurial ecosystem.

It is precisely this stage that he details in his book “The Startup Game”, Bill Draper, undoubtedly one of the godfathers of the Venture Capital in United States. In it, Draper brilliantly describes the atmosphere of the late 60s and early 70s in Silicon Valley. He started a “fever” similar to that of a century and a quarter ago, in 1849, in the same territory: the gold rush. Only now it was talent, and not metal, that was sought. Money began to flow and a new industry was created with companies worth more than entire nations, a new stock market that today represents the largest volume of any stock market in the world, generating million dollar jobs for an entire region (from 1970 to today). , the state of California has been positioned as one of the 10 largest economies in the world).

Why is this relevant? Because making a comparison, Mexico is beginning to go through a similar moment. Having, apparently, safeguarded ourselves from a crisis that strongly affects the United States and Europe, Mexico is positioned among the first 10 economies with a hope for accelerated growth in the following years. In the midst of an employment crisis that has little by little translated into entrepreneurial activity, and with unprecedented support for the creation of an entrepreneurial ecosystem in which academia, government and industry collaborate strongly to promote innovation. A country where talent and opportunities abound, neighbor to the largest market in the world, and with government initiatives aimed at facilitating and providing greater possibilities of success to companies. new companies.

Let’s analyze just some of the government initiatives and their results in terms of technological development: in 2006, the government, through the Securities Market Law, created the SAPI (Sociedad Anónima Promotora de Inversión), which grants minority rights and is a more flexible vehicle with greater possibilities of going public, so encourages investment. This is not a minor change, and it has already begun to show definitive signs of a search for economic growth. In 2010 and 2011, many changes took place in economic matters: the procedures for opening companies were streamlined, the government support budget for technological development and innovation was doubled, and National Financial Institution (NAFIN) even created a fund of funds for investment investments. risk, which began an expansion of investment funds Venture Capital in Mexico.

In academic matters, thanks to the incubator program of the Ministry of Economy and the support for innovation from the National Council of Science and Technology (CONACYT), there are more than 500 incubators in universities in the country. Today there are dozens of business accelerators, where programs such as Techba stand out, promoted by the United States Mexico Foundation for Science (FUMEC) or Wayraprivate accelerator Telefónica Group that promotes projects related to information technologies (IT). In addition, innovation awards abound in Mexico, offered by large corporations such as American Express, Banorte, Santander, Intel, Dell and many others that have promoted applied research in academia, and the generation of technological projects that have already created today. countless companies.

Finally, according to Gartner, Mexico has positioned itself as the fourth optionafter India, China and the Philippines, as a global provider of IT services and, according to AT Karney, it is the sixth destination worldwide and the first in America to establish IT services companies, advancing enormous strides since the last decade, a time when we did not even appear as an option within the innovation map and development in information technologies

All this, coupled with a drop in the number of opportunities in the now depressed economies of the first world, has forced investment funds to look at us, making the growth of money flow not only internal, but also attracted from United States, Canada and some European countries. Mexico is today, after Brazil, the best option to invest in Latin America, or the best, if we consider the conclusions of the last G20 summit in Baja California, a few months ago.

Of course there is still much to do. For example, in Mexico there are very few options to raise money in the early stages of a new company. The interest in credit financing is still prohibitive and elitist, there are very few options to obtain angel or seed capital and the lack of going public, as well as the little activity of mergers and acquisitions, still inhibits investments in industries other than real estate or other tangible assets. This without taking into account, of course, the possible break in political and economic continuity in the post electoral year, a society that has yet to adopt entrepreneurship as something necessary and positive, a climate of insecurity that not only affects the flow of investment but also makes to think, even for the most nationalists, whether it is worth undertaking locally and a perception of corruption that affects the image of regulatory institutions and therefore the quality of Mexican products and services.

Even so, this is the first time, that I remember, in which a joint effort on the part of society, the academic world, industry and government in terms of business creation has really been perceived. It seems that the conditions are in place for accelerated growth in the technology sector In Mexico, growth that generates greater wealth, that distributes money better to society and that helps Mexico rise on the scale of global competitiveness.

Assuming that the political and economic leaders in the next six year term trust that continuing along this path is good for Mexico, and stay the course, we could be at the threshold of the change from a dependent and uninnovative economy to a developed, competitive and generating economy. of high value jobs for its population.

To conclude, I don’t think we can replicate Silicon Valley, I think geographically, politically and economically they have a lot of advantage over us, but I don’t think it’s necessary. We can create our own in Mexico innovation model, taking advantage, in addition to the current situation, of the Mexican idiosyncrasy. We are a happy, hard working people with an unbeatable creative capacity, characteristics that we maintain regardless of the adversities that have historically been presented to us. All we have to do is imagine what we could achieve with a little wind in our sails.

This is what those of us who make up the group are working for. entrepreneurial ecosystem Mexican. My bet is that we will achieve it in this decade. Which is yours?

World of Warships receives major graphical improvements and more!

World of Warships

Today the Wargamingdeveloper and publisher of the world’s most popular naval combat game, World of Warshipsreleases details on the multitude of changes that can be found in its recent 0.10.10 update, including the fifth season of Supership Ranked Battles, the return of the popular “Arms Race” battle type, huge graphical improvements to the game and much more.

Massive visual improvements

World of Warships prides itself on delivering stunning visual displays of naval combat to gamers and military history enthusiasts around the world, and this update is designed to make the game’s visuals bolder and better than ever.

Firstly, the water simulation on all maps has been completely changed. The new simulation system allows you to obtain waves of almost any shape and height, and also makes their dynamics realistic, with ships visually rocking in the waves. Some maps have also been updated with HD textures and animated objects.

Vegetation has been improved and looks more realistic on all maps. In addition to the surface, changes have been made to the underwater world as well, which continue to be vastly improved as submarines continue to be released into the game. To see images of these visual changes, see this article.

Superships in Ranked and Co-op Battles

As World of Warships enters its fifth season of Ranked Battles, a new range of Super Ships arrive on the scene to shake things up, as well as changes to existing Super Ships. In addition to the Satsuma and Hannover, there will be four more superships: Condé, Annapolis, Yamagiri and Zorkiy.

In true Supership fashion, these new vessels will have unique features that offer players alternative gameplay tactics and diversify decision-making in battle. Condé, Annapolis, and Zorkiy can boast an alternate fire mode that causes all of their turrets to fire multiple volleys of projectiles in quick succession.

The Yamagiri, in turn, offers two types of torpedoes, which can be swapped during battle, allowing players to prioritize range, speed or damage in their combats. Existing Superships Satsuma and Hannover will see some changes to their signature feature — Combat Instructions. Instead of triggering automatically, players will now be able to activate it at the most opportune moment in battle.

All six Superships are available to rent in random packs that can be purchased from the Armory in exchange for a new temporary resource — Supership Tokens. Tokens can be obtained by completing special combat missions with tier X ships. Super Ships are available to play in Ranked and Co-op Battles.

Soviet aircraft carriers enter the fray

With the release of update 0.10.10, “Komsomolets”, “Serov”, “Pobeda” and “Admiral Nakhimov” are available for research to all players. These formidable vessels offer players devastating attacks with their entire squadron, rockets, long-range torpedoes, and skip bombers.

The second week of the update will bring five themed groups of combat missions in which, upon completion, players will be rewarded with the historic Soviet battleship Novorossiysk, a commander with 6 skill points and a port slot.

As the Soviets complete their launch, German tier III-IX battleships continue in their early access through update 0.10.10. The iconic port of Hamburg has been decorated and players can exchange German Tokens for these ships, and with the release of the update, a special combat mission will be available, rewarding players with a themed patch and flag.

Arms race

The popular Arms Race battle type is back, as Wargaming gradually prepares to release it in Random Battles mode in the future. Players need to organize as a team, in a 12 vs. 12 format, capturing special boost zones as reinforcements continue to arrive. Improving on the original format, the new iteration introduces several changes, including two new bonuses that will increase weaponry damage and the total HP value of ships.

This update also includes significant changes to submarines as they continue to be tested by the community. Finally, festive battle performance bonuses arrived early this year. With ships from tier V onwards, players can collect Coal, Steel, or a special temporary resource called New Year Certificates, which can be exchanged for “Santa’s Gift” containers in the next update.

Gamescom 2023: I saw Wayfinder in action

At Gamescom I had the opportunity to take a look at Wayfinder. I learned quite a lot about it. Details can be found in the post extension.

Wayfinder is a title that I had – and still have – great hopes for. Even though I’m not an MMO fan, I’m looking forward to this game. The fact that it was developed by the Airship Syndicate studio, known from… Darksiders Genesis. Wayfinder it has a similar visual style, which is a plus for me. It has its own atmosphere and I think it will age slower. However, this is just my guess, let’s move on to proven and confirmed information instead. But first, of course, I encourage you to watch the promotional material below.

We will have 6 character classes to choose from. Some of them must be unlocked by playing other characters. It is also possible to have early access to a specific class by spending real money. All characters have recorded dialogue lines, a Wayfinders they know each other. Will this lead to appropriate comments when playing in the Crew? I do not know that yet.
Fans of personalization will be happy to know that we can customize not only the appearance of our character, but also his home. It is worth not omitting this element, because it can significantly influence the gameplay. We can install items in the house that provide us with a bonus or a chance to drop a key in the chest. We decide where we place which element of home furnishings.

It is worth mentioning that the game will feature melee and firearms. However, if we join an ongoing session to help other players, we will receive a special currency for it. One dungeon will take us on average from 5 to 15 minutes. You can create your own – private, up to 3-person – teams, although there is also matchmaking. In turn, the maximum character level is currently 30 – the same as the maximum weapon level.

Wayfinder is already available in Early Access on Steam, and eventually the game will also be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It is worth noting that it will support cross-play and cross-progression. Are you waiting for this game? Let us know what you think about her in the comments.

What does Google know about me?

Google is always present in both good times and bad. When we have a problem, we always ask for the best solution and when we want to buy something and we look for the cheapest website, we do that too.

Google knows everything. He knows where we go, what we buy, what we look for, who we talk to and he has a slight idea of ​​what we are like.. But if you’ve ever wondered… What does Google know about me? You can find out just by entering the preferences.

When you browse, ads appear. Ads that happen to interest you or should, because they usually appear based on your preferences or searches. Why does this appear? Why does Google know that this content interests me? Because somehow he spies on us. It is perhaps the price of using it for everything. It’s not that I’ve become a fortune teller, but if you’ve looked at cell phone or computer rates lately, they’ll start to appear in these ads.

Google knows what we like

It’s not a bad thing that Google knows what we like, since it is a means of offering us more recommended content for ourselves.

In the case of ads, Google charges a certain amount of money for advertising, it is the Internet giant’s most important source of income, so Getting the ads you show right is essential. But to do that, Google needs to create a profile about us. You need to know what we like or what we need, to offer it to us without wasting time and clicking on their ads.

Google analyzes our habits

Google knows what we do every day. He knows our routines and vices probably better than anyone else.. If a person starts to consult women’s fashion websites in the morning, it will make him or her sense that the user is a middle-aged woman, especially if she also starts to consult recipes at mealtime and searches for the afternoon programming. If this is repeated day after day, Google’s algorithm will determine which ads are best for that user.

What does Google know about me?

Google knows everything. Worse if you want to know what exactly it knows, you can take a look at google.com/ads/preferences/. Just copy and paste it into your browser. You’ll see something similar to this, which is coincidentally what Google knows about me:

It is clear that Google knows much more than what it says about us, but at least according to this, we see that it knows our basic things. ___, age, languages ​​and interests. Enough to determine the ads, or not?

Are you okay with Google having this information about you?

Building free hardware toys with Arduino

The Three Wise Men are approaching and the children begin to write letters with the gifts they want to enjoy throughout the year. A Christmas classic are construction games, which have helped several generations make their dreams of building vehicles and buildings come true. Can you innovate in this sector? Of course, and Arduinothe free hardware platform, has a lot to say about it.

Makeblock It takes up the idea of ​​making the vehicles we imagine a reality, adding a touch of technology and programming that is more than stimulating. They call themselves a “robot construction company” and the most interesting thing is that they allow anyone (who is clever enough) to build their own inventions, building them from scratch and adding Electronic components and then manage them.

Makeblock parts are divided into two sections, mechanical and electronic. The first are the most familiar in any home on the morning of January 6 and make up the structure of the creations and games. The second are those that involve change and innovation and are based on Arduino technology. These include a base for the controller, elements that make communication possible or sensors. The electronic modules are based on open source and allow anyone to explore them at will.

Although at first it may seem like a very exclusive invention, those responsible have also wanted to make it easy for all handymen who are still learning or those who do not have extensive knowledge of electronics. Thus, thanks to Arduino and the functions identified by colors, taking advantage of it is simple. The pieces are made of modular aluminum, which connect to each other easily thanks to a series of holes and openings.

Don’t miss the smartphone

We already have the parts, we assemble them and build a small vehicle. We add the electronic part, sensors and now… how do we manage it? With the phone, of course. Makeblock has developed an application, still in beta, thanks to which we can use our smartphone to interact with the toy we have created.

The possibilities are as numerous as we can imagine, but they already give us some ideas on how to get the most out of it. For example, if we are photographers, we cannot miss the opportunity to build a platform for our camera like the one that appears in the following video:

Between play and learning

As was already the case with traditional construction games such as Lego or Mecano, we are faced with a hybrid that offers the user both leisure and intellectual stimulation. Children have fun building small robots but they also begin to develop skills. As the pieces are numerous, Makeblock allows you to choose between simple and advanced kits, thanks to which you can focus on young children or kids with more advanced knowledge.

How to use stacks to manage individual stacks in a Mac browser

When you’re ready to open or close it, click once on a specific stack. After opening a stack, the files it contains will usually be displayed on the desktop. At this point, the stack icon will appear as an arrow-shaped folder.

If you want to view the files contained in a specific stack, simply click on it. It will immediately expand and show a small arrow on the stack name. This will let you know which stack you are looking at. While the stack is expanded, it will open in whatever application is set as the default application for the specific file type.

Alternatively, to check the elements contained in a stack without having to open it, move the pointer to go over a stack. Scroll with your mouse or trackpad and as you scroll, the stack name and icon will automatically change to match each of the files contained in the stack. Upon locating the desired file, open it by double-clicking.

By using Stacks, you will find it easy to perform any action on specific items contained in a stack. You just need to right click on a particular stack, go to the shortcut menu and select the desired action. This way you can share, compress, rename, or perform quick actions.

App Tip: NaviDisa Speech

You usually see games with us as app tips or new flashy apps. This time we discuss a handy app that may not look super slick, but it does deliver in terms of functionality. It is about the NaviDisa Speech app, which is an app with a database with location-related information for people with disabilities. But before you think this app isn’t for you, wait a little longer.

What this app is really about is that you can control it with speech, the answer is also spoken. So whether you have a (visual) disability or not, you have to find a certain place even though you don’t know where it is. Well, then you use this app that allows you to navigate to your destination almost completely hands-free. The NaviDisa speech app has also been nominated for the Support Innovation Award 2012, so if you want to do a little extra, vote for this app (vote for Layer without barriers).

Because this app is quite extensive and contains many functions that require professional explanation, I refer you to: NaviDisa for further information
