Last week, Google wrote a blog post sharing the inconsistencies with news articles through search. Too often, sources with the reliability are brought in after other rumors and articles have hit the internet.
So now, Google search will send a notice, informing the user that the stories are evolving and will become more reliable as it becomes available.
Since last year, we’ve had similar notices that let you know when Google hasn’t been able to find anything that matches your search particularly well. With our recently-launched About This Result panel, you can also quickly find information about sources you find on Google Search and better determine if they’re likely to provide helpful or trustworthy information. With this additional context, you can make a more informed decision about the sites you may want to visit and what results will be most useful for you.
This feature is to help users find the most reliable sources available on the internet. With the amount of remote users working from home, the web has become one of the most utilized tools for information. Google will be working on sharing this handy feature to other search engines within the next few months.
This week, Microsoft will be holding their major event, unveiling the newly updated Windows OS.
For months, any reports have circulated concerning the imminent Windows 10 update. Some speculated that Microsoft made it obvious that Windows 10 will be the final version. Others speculated that the software behemoth had something up its sleeve.
Last week, a leak produced a visual of what the new operating system would look like. End of support for Windows 10 revealed Windows 10’s retirement in 2025. And their Event announcement on their website might indicate the last hint that Windows 10 is no more, and Windows 11 will emerge.
You can watch the free, livestream Event on June 24th at 11 am EST.
With the multiple rumors surrounding the upcoming overhaul of Windows 10, speculation set in with a possible Windows 11.
On the Microsoft Docs, however, a small but significant note was made for Windows 10 Home and Pro. The Support page shows a retirement date of October 14th, 2025.
When end-of-life happens, the operating system will no longer receive security or quality updates, although Microsoft may decide to extend the deadline slightly at some point in the future, as it did with Windows 7. Once support ends, users will no longer be able to contact Microsoft for advice in the event of problems with that OS.
What this states is simply clear: Windows 10 End of Support will be ending in 2025. This could mean that the Microsoft event happening on June 24th will be announcing the future of Windows OS – whether its name is Sun Valley, or Windows 11.
There are so much confusion, as well as many questions that Windows users are asking, but we have to wait a couple more weeks for the answers.
Apple’s WWDC is happening this week, and announcements have already been overflowing.
iOS 15 has been one of the main topics of this conference. Many of the apps involved with their devices are getting upgrades, including Messages and Facetime.
Yesterday, Apple announced a well known security feature to the operating system: 2-Factor Authentication. According to TechRadar, “iOS 15 will include a built-in authenticator that will help generate verification codes for online services that support 2FA, eliminating the need to download a third-party app, like Google Authenticator or Authy.”
2FA, or Two-factor authentication, was intended to provide the highest effective level of account security. You will set up your accounts in the Settings App, and the feature will simply fill in the code automatically.
It’s no secret that hackers are looking for new ways to inject harmful malware into potential victims’ computers in order to breach their privacy and steal sensitive data. Sideloading is just another way to do that.
If you have an Android, you may be familiar with the term ‘sideloading’. This feature allows users to install apps from different types of sources. While this might be an advantage to those who prefer no limitation, it could also be problematic.
According to Bitdefender, “Using a combination of tricks to persuade users to install apps outside of the official store, criminals spread most of their malware through sideloading.”
It’s important to remember to download content from legitimate sources. Not doing so could potentially welcome attacks to steal information.
