Sat, 04/08/2017 - 21:10
Every day, we are virtually flooded by news published on the Internet. Yet frequently, it is hard to tell which pieces of them are true, and which are fake. The latter can be used as a means of manipulation e.g. in politics. In order to fight against such fake news, Google made its Fact Search feature available in its News and Search services all around the globe. (more)

After 30 years of domination, Windows was dethroned by Android

Wed, 04/05/2017 - 19:03
The March statistics published by StatCounter show that Windows wasn’t the most popular system on devices connected to the Internet. The market share of Microsoft’s operating system reached 37,91%.

Microsoft has huge problems with the mobile market domination. The flagship product of the corporation from Redmond has been a leader on personal computers for 30 years. Windows is still the most popular operating system on desktop computers and nothing suggests that it will change. Source: computerworld.com (more)

Possibly, it's only one of the last phones dedicated for South America. The corporation sees the future of mobile Windows in Surface Phone. (more)
