Wt.social might be the future Social Media Network you can trust and use now to fight fake news..

Wt.social this is the Social network that was silently launched by Wikipedia Cofounder Jimmy Wales to fight against fake news being spread across social networks especially Facebook and Twitter.

This Social network promises to provide only verified news from different sources with an option for you to flag the inappropriate posts, edit the headlines then and there✌.. The biggest advantage was it being running only like Wikipedia model which means, it will be running on Donations. Hence the Site is adfree as well.

The founders promises that they will never share the information with any third party and there will no need for that too as the advertising won't be there on this Social network as said before.

Signing up process is Still free, but you have to wait on the waitlist, there was also an option to get the access right away by paying around $12-13 as per sources. 

This site has around 58000+ people and is still growing, It will be a reboot/ modified version of Wikitribune..

The new Wikitribune is a completely unique and slightly crazy idea: a collaboratively editable social networking new platform. As before, we will have no advertising and no paywall (There is a short waiting list to join the new site to help us with scaling up, but you can skip the waiting list if you invite people or if you become a paying supporter), Jimmy Said in its Wikitribune post..
Whatever it may, fake news will be always there till we circulate the news without verifying it first ! So, we request you to contribute to curb fake news by just taking a small pledge today that we will be verifying the news before sharing !  

Good day :)

How do you pronounce quokka ? - Google will now tell whether you pronounced right or Wrong.!

How do you pronounce quokka ? - Google will now tell whether you pronounced right or Wrong.!

Google, is One of the search giant coming up innovations now and then. Today, it debuted yet another feature for people who find difficulties in pronouncing things. Earlier, if you had searched How do you pronounce quokka ? then Google will simply show you some random audio clip that will speak the word that we requested. But as an upgrade to the existing technology, Using Machine learning technology Google will now let you practice the pronunciation directly on the search result.

So, from now on if you search How do you pronounce quokka ? then Google will display the audio clip. and will ask you to pronounce (there will be a microphone icon, which you can tap), if you misspelt some letter for example "kka" part, then it say you did it wrong, and will ask you to try and you can use this feature, as its really cool to learn different words, and its exact pronoun cation.

 Starting rolling out today, when you look up the translation of a word or its definition, you’ll start seeing images that give you additional context. This can be useful with words that have multiple meanings like “seal,” or words like “avocado” that aren’t commonly used in all languages or regions. Since not all words are easily described with an image, we’re starting with nouns and plan to expand from there. Images in the dictionary features will be available in English today and across all language translations, Google added in its post..

 The earlier version which will display the meaning of the word will also be there, which is an added advantage..

What is apt in Kali Linux and what apt command will do in Linux ?

What is apt in Kali Linux and what apt command will do in Linux ?

What is APT in Kali Linux ? this is the question i had in my mind when i first started using the command to update Kali Linux to latest version. I even don't know the full form at that time, and started blindly using the command at that time as my goal was just to start using the Kali linux for the purpose it was designed for.

Then later, i realized and as always say, Basics are important particular when it comes to master the Kali Linux to use what it was intended for. So, as part of the learning series let's see what is APT in Kali Linux in this post. As usual in simple terms...

What is apt command in Kali Linux ?

APT stands for Advanced Packaging Management, as the name says it was just another package Management tool. We all know that Kali Linux is based on Debian. So, like normal Package system Debian has its Own Packaging System known as Debian Packaging Management System, which is nothing but the one we normally see in running commands. You guessed it right. Its dpkg.

What's this APT will do is, it will interact with the dpkg file and will install the particular file on our system. i.e., if dpkg is the lower version, APT is the advanced version which combines all the available packages from all the sources and will do the job we asked it to do.

The one file that it will use at most cases is /etc/apt/sources.list because it contains all the source files. Just open it once you can find the all links it uses to update the sources.

Remember, it is not recommended to edit this directly if you want your system to be stable.

What is Sudo apt in Linux ?

Sudo is just a keyword we use for super user privileges. So, running sudo apt-get upgrade will upgrade your system to latest version of Linux using administrative privileges.

As, apt deals with management of sources, its always recommended to use sudo before running apt commands.

Apt also has different set of commands like apt-get.. So, run man apt on your terminal on your free time to learn the complete list, or Stay tuned, i will post those in other posts..

Hope it helps :)

Windows 10, version 1909 Bluetooth connectivity issue - Unable to discover or connect to Bluetooth devices using some Realtek adapters

Windows 10, version 1909 aka Windows 10 November 2019 update users are reporting Bluetooth connectivity issue. They are Unable to discover or connect to Bluetooth devices.

If you are one of the person experiencing this Bluetooth connectivity issue in this latest Windows 10, 1909 update, then there is a good news as well as bad news for you. The good news is Microsoft is aware of the issue, but the bad news is we don't know when the fix will be available.

Microsoft has identified compatibility issues with some driver versions for Bluetooth radios made by Realtek. To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on devices with affected driver versions for Realtek Bluetooth radios from being offered Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903 until the driver has been updated.
Even though Microsoft has temporarily paused the Windows 1909 update to the devices that are not compatible, there are still users (like me) who has installed the update using different ways like Media creation tool.

There is a Workaround for this issue. All we need to do is to install the latest drivers from Official Site. The Realtek driver version should be greater than 1.5.1011.0 as per Microsoft.

If the version is not available then we request you not to upgrade it to this OS else wait for an Official fix.

I will update the post once we have more information.

#Facebook Pay might arrive to your WhatsApp and Instagram Very soon - Launching today in US.

Facebook, the social network that once dominated tech industry and every person has slowly started to recover from various issues. 

Today, the company announced that, its rolling out Facebook Pay the feature that will allow you to send and receive money to everyone. Though this is not a new feature as there are various companies like Google, Samsung, etc.. offering this feature, Facebook might succeed considering the fact that users doesn't need to leave the app, and they can send the money as soon as someone requested him/her to send money. 

This feature is backed by Paypal which is an added advantage.

With Data collection and Breach being the primary concern of people quitting Facebook and moving to different networks like WhatsApp and Instagram. Facebook will still continue its mission of developing new features despite criticism as the above two top social networks are also owned by Facebook.

Google Plans to introduce Slow Website Badge to make Websites load faster through Google Chrome - #Moving towards Future?

Google Plans to introduce Slow Website Badge to make Websites load faster through Google Chrome - #Moving towards Future?

                 Google's chrome team is planning to introduce the badging system to help users identify whether to stay on the website or to leave it. Whenever we visit website, it might cause a little bit frustration for users like us to wait till the particular site loads to find the information we need even when we have Super fast internet Speed 😐😐 . Though Website owners justify that the website is loading slow only because of the background codes that will run once you load the page, Google disagrees !

Google says, User experience also includes the fast loading speed, and if its slow then its really a bad user experience. Inorder to make this clear to website owners, Google is developing the future chrome App to display the badge to the visitor that this website will usually load slow and the visitor like us can wait for sometime for the site to load, indirectly blaming Website owners.

Our plan to identify sites that are fast or slow will take place in gradual steps, based on increasingly stringent criteria. Our long-term goal is to define badging for high-quality experiences, which may include signals beyond just speed, Google said in its post.

I guess introducing such features will atleast make half of the websites that exists on this world fast that are loading very slow even in super fast internet connections and Google and Other search giant has to develop more features like this in future to make internet faster, What do you Say?
