Happy Belated Birthday: Google Just Turned 18!

0

​18 Years ago Google first saw the light of day, to make it the world’s favourite search engine, browser, map service, email client, mobile OS, ok, let’s stop there. The world as we know it would be very incredibly different if it weren’t for Google with at least one third of the global population using its very many services.  

Doodler Gerben Steenks designed this Doodle in celebration of Google’s 18th birthday.

Apple has nothing compared to that. Take a moment to let that sink in. Even tech companies aspire to reach the indispensable status that Google has achieved. Amazon & Facebook have come closest to replicating Google’s success but through rather different approaches.
Google’s relevance can be attributed to its ubiquity & quality of its services. Google’s strategy of being everywhere so that it no longer matters where its users are or what programmes they use has put it above the rest.
Even though this blog post is coming late we at TechPhreak use this opportunity to wish Google an Happy Belated Birthday and we hope it’s not too late to share some cakes. 

Russia Hackers Infiltrate Donald Trump Files In DNC Servers

0

Reports are in that Russian hackers from the government have broken into the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) servers🗄 in search of material to use against Republican nominee Donald Trump. DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz acknowledged the breach and said have sought assistance from the security firm CrowdStrike to rid themselves of the hackers. Wasserman said, “When we discovered the intrusion, we treated this like the serious incident it is and reached out to CrowdStrike immediately.”

The anonymous hackers are being called Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear by CrowdStrike. One group was reading emails and going through files. Both groups, though they operate independently, have been known to engage in political espionage🕵 and are believed to be linked with Russia’s secret services. CrowdStrike said, “Our team considers them some of the best adversaries out of all the numerous nation-state, criminal and hacktivist/terrorist groups we encounter on a daily basis.”

Xiaomi in Conjunction with Google launches its first Android One phone, the Xiaomi Mi A1

0

Late last week, Xiaomi said that it would launch a phone in a brand-new series, and that the device would make its debut in India. At a media event in New Delhi, Xiaomi unveiled the Mi A1, its first Android One phone. The device is a variant of the Mi 5X, which was unveiled in China back in July. What makes the Mi A1 particularly interesting is the fact that it runs stock Android out of the box.

Xiaomi Mi A1

 

Xiaomi Mi A1 Specifications

The Xiaomi Mi A1 has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 625, 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, dual 12MP cameras with a primary wide-angle lens and a secondary telephoto lens, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3080mAh battery. Like all Xiaomi phones sold in India, the Mi A1 will be assembled locally in the country.

The phone doesn’t come with Oreo out of the box — it is running Android 7.1.2 Nougat with the August security patch, but Google says that the Oreo update will be rolled out before the end of the year. Google also says that the Mi A1 will be one of the first devices to pick up the Android P update next year.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Operating System

And unlike previous Android One devices, which received updates directly from Google, Xiaomi will be rolling out the updates to the Mi A1. Good news the Xiaomi Mi A1 doesn’t come with MIUI just pure Android OS.

That’s because of the dual camera setup at the back — to take full advantage of the dual imaging sensors, Xiaomi bundled its own camera app with the phone, and that means any new update will have to go through Xiaomi to make sure it doesn’t break the camera. Xiaomi is also offering an IR blaster on the Mi A1, and has bundled its Mi Remote utility as well. Aside from that, you’ll get a clean software experience.

Where to buy Xiaomi Mi A1 and Price

The Xiaomi Mi A1 will be available on Mi.com as well as Flipkart for ₹14,999 ($230), and will be up for purchase at Mi Home stores as well as Xiaomi’s retail partner network. The phone will go up for sale on September 12 and will be heading to over 25 global markets shortly including Africa countries like Egypt, South Africa also Nigerians can order online.
