TRUECALLER GETS A NEW COAT OF PAINT FOR ANDROID, BUT IN REALITY IT IS MUCH MORE

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-227475

General
Truecaller remains one of the most popular apps for Android phones—perhaps also because spam calls and messages are a major annoyance on a daily basis. Truecaller, an app you probably use the most for detecting and blocking spam calls, has received what is perhaps its biggest update in a while. And the update is now rolling out for Android users on the Google Play Store. In case you don’t get it immediately, don’t worry, because it’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks. Truecaller remains one of the most popular apps for the Apple iPhone and Android phones—perhaps also because spam calls and messages are a major annoyance on a daily basis. Sitting within the redesign is a new home screen, a Smart SMS inbox that is more powerful than before and Full Screen Caller ID. For starters, when you open the Truecaller app on an Android phone post the update, you will be greeted with a completely new home screen layout. This is now a two-layered interface, with tabs at the top and the bottom of the screen. At the bottom, you have Home, Contacts, Blocking, Banking and Payments. The tabs at the top change depending on which of these master tabs you are in at the time. For instance, in the Home tab, you have Personal, Important, Other messages and Spam messages. Important messages as defined by Truecaller right now include bills, transaction messages, online tickets and more. The Important tab also gives you reminders based on upcoming bookings, for instance—you wouldn’t want to miss a flight or a movie, when the world becomes a better place again. “For the future of the Important tab, we will also be adding in the coming months travel reminders like flight delays, bus seat allocation and live tracking, and updates on postal deliveries, tax updates and hospital appointments,” says Truecaller. Switch to the Contacts tab, and you get your contacts list and also a separate list of incoming calls that Truecaller identified. Since this replicates the phonebook in your Android phone, you will get your favorites sorted nicely as well. The Blocking tab is an evolution of the Spam tab earlier, and you get more detailed options now—automatic update of top spammers list, block 140 series telemarketers quite common in India and more. With a growing focus on digital payments, Truecaller has divided that into Banking and Payments, also because the latter will widen in scope. You set up your Truecaller Pay account by verifying your phone number with your bank account to set this up—much like how any UPI payments app setup works. The thing is, even if you don’t set up Truecaller Pay, you can still make payments for utility bills, mobile bills, broadband bills, cable TV and DTH payments, insurance and more with UPI payment apps such as Google Pay, PhonePe and Paytm. Truecaller will also send you monthly reminders for new bills, if that is what you want. In a way, the design is now simplified even though there are more options available. And the dark mode looks brilliant too. Truecaller take pains to confirm that the processing happens offline, and no message leaves your smartphone. This means all SMS detections, categorizations and other calling data remains on your phone. All transactional information is also securely stored in your phone. In fact, this feature is being rolled out for India first, with a global rollout happening eventually. Earlier, Truecaller had enhanced the privacy controls in the app. “We do not sell our users’ names or phone numbers to third parties because it is against our ethics,” they said earlier. At no point does an advertising partner doesn’t actually get access to the information of any Truecaller user. Last but not least is the new full screen caller ID. Instead of a pop-up, you now get a full-screen layer on the Android phone’s display when a new call comes in. The problem is, with customizations done by different phone makers, sometimes this pop-up may end up hiding an important element on the screen. Truecaller says the new update will gradually roll out in the coming weeks for all Android users globally. Please stay tuned and follow me for more.Read all >>

MAN CITY 'JOIN MAN UTD' IN £70M TRANSFER RACE FOR BAYER LEVERKUSEN'S KAI HAVERTZ

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-222145

Mancity
Havertz is one of the hottest prospects in Europe and a long-term target for United - but they are now set to face competition for his signature from their local rivals Bayer Leverkusen star Havertz is one of Europe's hottest prospects and has continued to gather suitors thanks to his 12 goals this season. The versatile attacker continued his strong campaign by marking the return of the Bundesliga with two goals against Werder Bremen on Monday. Able to play as a winger, attacking midfielder or up front, Havertz has been closely monitored by Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United. But Premier League clubs will now face competition for his signature from champions Manchester City, according to The Sun. Havertz has scored eight goals and assisted five times in the Bundesliga this season. However, Havertz - whose contract runs until 2022 - could be available for a much-reduced fee of £70million due to the financial impact of the coronavirus crisis. City are preparing for life without David Silva, 34, who is leaving the Etihad Stadium after 10 years at the end of the season. The Sky Blues are also widely mooted to be losing 24-year-old star Leroy Sane to giants Bayern Munich this summer. The German winger has not featured this season due to sustaining a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the Community Shield in August. As such, City will look to recruit new talents this summer who can help them close the current 25-point gap to league-leaders Liverpool. Havertz has usually featured in attacking midfield or on the right wing for Leverkusen this season, though he has recently been used as a striker and is expected to develop in this role. Therefore, he could also provide competition for Sergio Aguero, who is now 31 and linked with a move to Real Madrid and Inter Milan. Guardiola is said to have sent scouts to watch Havertz, who is open to the idea of moving abroad to advance his career.

10 Guaranteed Signs He Doesn't Like You

AdenikeJeff | 2016-07-029317

Feedback
1. He’s Not Around You And Makes No Effort To Be Around You This is the single most important sign. When a guy wants something – he’s going to go after it. He’s not going to sit back twiddling his thumbs. So if he’s not spending time with you, hanging around, and making excuses to hang out with you… when is he going to have the opportunity to try to get closer to you? The short answer is, he’s not. Guys aren't stupid. If he wants you, he knows that he has to spend time with you and be around you in order to get closer to you. So if he’s not hanging around, or hanging out with you, or even showing up in your life – he’s not trying to go after you… which means he doesn't like you. 2. He Doesn't Really Listen When You Talk And Doesn't Remember What You Tell Him People remember things that are important to them. Simply put: if your subconscious decides something is important, you’re going to remember it. And if he likes you, his subconscious is 100% going to know about it – and it’s going to automatically make him remember the things you say. If he’s not listening to you or remembering the things you say, it means you’re not important to him. Can you remember the last time you liked a guy and he wasn't important to you (at least right then?) Obviously, if he’s trying to learn how to juggle 3 flaming chainsaws when you tell him your favourite colour – he might not remember. But 99% of the time, if he likes you, he’s going to listen to you, and remember the things you tell him. 3. He Doesn’t Care About Your Relationships With Other Men Even In The Slightest Let’s play pretend. You say to him, “I saw my friend KingRex1 last night.” Do his ears perk up? Does his tone of voice change? Most importantly: does he ask, “Who’s KingRex1 ?” If he’s into you – he’s gonna care about the other guys you’re hanging out with. And unless he’s the most sophisticated man on the planet – he’s going to reveal he cares (even if he just makes a joke) about what you did with “KingRex1.” Guys are hard-wired to pick up on competition. That’s why if you can’t get a guy to care about something, the best way to get him hooked is to make it into a competition. He doesn't care about doing the dishes? Bet him that you can clean the dishes faster than he can. Point is, if there’s one thing that guys love, it’s a competition. And they’re able to sniff one out from a mile away. So if he’s interested in you, he’s going to be hypersensitive to the idea that anyone else is interested in you… and is in direct competition with him. Obviously, he’s not going to say something incredibly romantic because you mentioned another guy, but if he likes you, he’s definitely going to have some sort of reaction. And if you mention another potential suitor, only to get no reaction from him – it means that you’re not grabbing the attention of even his competitive side… which is a huge sign that he’s not interested. 4. He Treats You The Same As He Treats Everyone Else – No Difference This one is simple. When a guy is into you – he feels differently about you than other people. When he feels different, he acts different. Simple, right? If that doesn't sound simple – think about it this way. Let’s say you’re out with your friends. You’re laughing, you’re having a good time, you’re relaxed and comfortable… and then your boss shows up. All of a sudden, the whole dynamic is probably going to change for you (unless you have the coolest boss in the world). You’re going to reign yourself in, watch what you’re saying way more, and in general become way less relaxed. Why? Because you care about what your boss thinks about you! You don’t want to make a mistake or lower your status in your boss’s eyes, so you act differently than normal. It’s the same with a guy who likes you. He’s not afraid that you’re going to fire him (unless you’re his boss, which is a whole different can of worms), but he’s definitely going to care what you think of him, which is going to make him act differently. Just like you want to know how to be cute around him, to make him like you. If he likes you, it’s gonna show. He’ll act differently around you than other people. Unless he’s a world famous actor or a hardened spy… in which case, good luck. 5. He’s Not Really Curious About Your Life If a guy is interested, he’s going to want to know more about you. What makes you tick, what you like, what you don’t like, EVERYTHING. He’s going to want clues about what you’re really about – both so that he can get to know you better and also so that he can make himself more attractive to you. And all that starts with getting to know you, which starts with being curious about your life. If he likes you, he’ll be interested in you. He’ll want to know more about you – and he’ll care when you tell him about yourself. 6. He Openly Mentions Other Women He’s Interested In / He’s In A Serious Relationship OK – let’s start out here – if he’s talking about someone else that he’s seriously interested in, not just throwing a woman’s name out there to see how you react… it means that he’s not interested. If he’s seriously interested in someone else, and telling you about it, he’s not trying to make you jealous. He’s giving you a blatant signal that he’s not interested in dating you. Of course, he might be sending you signals just for his own thrill, but that’s pretty unlikely… 7. He Never Contacts You First If he likes you, he’s going to want to see you. He’s going to want to be around you. And he’s going to want to talk to you. That urge you feel in your stomach to be around a guy you like – men feel that too. And if he feels that urge, he’s going to be reaching out to you to see you again. If he’s not calling, or texting, or making plans to be with you, then he doesn't feel that urge. 8. He’s A Super Friendly/Super Flirty Guy In General This ties back into sign #4 – if he’s a super flirty guy and he flirts with you – he’s not really treating you differently. He’s treating you the same as he treats everyone else. He might make you feel really special – compliment you, make you laugh, call you pet names… But if he does that with every girl he meets… he’s not treating you any differently, is he? 9. He’s Always Busy / He Doesn't Put In Any Extra Effort This is about priorities. There are some guys out there that are really busy – and that’s ok. And if he’s too busy to see you as much as you’d like him to – it doesn't mean he doesn't care about you. But if he’s too busy to see you at all – it means you’re not even on his list of priorities. And even the busiest guy on the planet will make time to see you – as long as you’re a priority for him. So it comes down to the question – are you among his priorities or not? If you are – great. If you’re not… instead of following all these books and crazy things that tell you to try to change him and make him come around and chase after you… You should be dropping him and spending your time with a guy who does make you his priority. 10. The Truth: It Will Be obvious That He Likes You - Look – guys aren't subtle. This is all about your gut instinct. Honestly – what do you really think in your gut about him. Do you really think he likes you? Listen to your gut – whether you get a sinking feeling or an excited, butterfly feeling will tell you everything you need to know. ok – so those are the signs. Chances are, you probably got your answer from one or more of the signs above. And before you jump down my throat with, “Oh but one time this guy didn't call me for 3 years and it turned out he was a secret agent working deep undercover but really he liked me the whole time!” – I'm not talking about the crazy outlier cases here. If he’s giving you 4 or more of the signs – it’s a pretty safe bet that he doesn't like you. Source: http://www.vixendaily.com/love/signs-he-doesnt-like-you/Read all >>

How To Impact The World While You Sleep

This post was last edited by ahiadzro at 2020-5-21 01:41 How many of you Tecno Fanatics know that you can make an impact in the world in your own special small way using your Tecno devices? Well, this post is here to throw some light on this. How can you impact the world while you sleep? DreamLab is the answer! What is DreamLab? DreamLab is a multi-award winning app that uses the collective power of smartphones to fast track research. With cancer, and now COVID-19 being one of the biggest causes of premature death worldwide, finding answers through medical research is incredibly important. DreamLab exists to help us get there sooner. And the more people who use the app, the faster it works. How does it work? Researchers need supercomputers to scan DNA in immense detail and crunch complex data. When you plug your phone in and power DreamLab, it downloads tiny parts of a huge research project from the cloud to calculate and sends the results back to the research team. The more people who power DreamLab, the faster we can complete critical research. All you need to do is set up DreamLab once and it will get to work each time you plug your phone in. We’ve all been touched by cancer and COVID-19. Our best chance of beating it is by working together. And while sleep has always been good for you – with the DreamLab app, it can be good for others too. Simply download the app and choose which Project you’d like to support. You can also track the Contribution you’ve made and keep up to date with News. Dreamlab supports cancer, COVID-19, and other projects globally and is powered by the Vodafone Foundation. A compatible handset may be required. Once downloaded, DreamLab can be used when your device is connected to a charging source and has a mobile network or WiFi connectivity. Mobile data to use DreamLab is free for Vodafone customers on their local Vodafone network. PS: Although DreamLab is Zero rated for some users, how much data DreamLab uses is up to you. On your mobile network, you can choose to give up to 50MB, 250MB or 500MB a month. For WiFi, you can choose to give up to 250MB, 1GB, or ‘unlimited’ a month. You can change how much data you contribute at any time in the DreamLab app Settings. As a guide, 50MB is about the same as uploading 25 photos to social media a month. 500MB is approximately equivalent to streaming a video for 1.5 hours a month. 1GB is similar to streaming a video for 3 hours a month. You can see how much data DreamLab has used in the app settings, and when your DreamLab month will restart. Read all >>

FACEBOOK SHOPS' LAUNCHING TODAY,WILL EVENTUALLY WORK ACROSS INSTAGRAM,MESSENGER

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-213223

General
Facebook has announced a major ecommerce move today that sees the launch of Facebook Shops. The company is pitching it as a way for businesses to create one online store that will work across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp. Facebook shared all the details about the new ecommerce platform in a blog post today, highlighting the pandemic as a key factor in small businesses trying to figure out online sales. We want to give people a place to experience the joy of shopping versus the chore of buying. And we want to help small businesses adapt and make it easier for people to discover and shop for things they love. Right now many small businesses are struggling, and with stores closing, more are looking to bring their business online. Our goal is to make shopping seamless and empower anyone from a small business owner to a global brand to use our apps to connect with customers. That’s why we’re launching Facebook Shops and investing in features across our apps that inspire people to shop and make buying and selling online easier. Here’s how Facebook describes the new Shops pages that will be free to create: Facebook Shops make it easy for businesses to set up a single online store for customers to access on both Facebook and Instagram. Creating a Facebook Shop is free and simple. Businesses can choose the products they want to feature from their catalog and then customize the look and feel of their shop with a cover image and accent colors that showcase their brand. This means any seller, no matter their size or budget, can bring their business online and connect with customers wherever and whenever it’s convenient for them. Notably, a new “Instagram Shop” tab will be coming to the bottom bar tab of the app “this summer” that will replace the Activity tab. That could definitely see some resistance from users. The company will also bring shopping to both Facebook and Instagram Live videos. Other features that are in the works include a customer loyalty program. This is the latest effort from Facebook in its strategy to unify its platforms and comes after recently launching group video chat software with Messenger Rooms that will also come to all of its services. Facebook Shops are available to a limited amount of businesses for now with a wider rollout “in the coming months.”Read all >>

FACEBOOK BUILDING A 23,000-MILE-LONG UNDERSEA CABLE TO BRING HIGH SPEED INTERNET

Barekese Mmrante Hene | 2020-05-2164692

General
Facebook has announced a new plan to build a 23,000-mile-long cable around Africa to bring high speed internet to the 1.3 billion people living on the continent. The project, called 2Africa, should more than triple the total network capacity in Africa when it’s completed in 2024. The cable is roughly the same length as the circumference of the Earth, and will deliver connection points to 23 countries, including Ghana, Ivory Coast, Gabon, Madagascar, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan. 2Africa is a new high speed fiber optic cable backed by Facebook that promises to tripe current network capacity in Africa and currently targeted for completion in 2024 ‘This expanded capacity will facilitate a healthy internet ecosystem by enabling greatly improved accessibility for people and businesses alike,’ Facebook wrote in a blog post announcing the project. ‘We have seen firsthand the positive impact that increased connectivity has on communities, from education to health care.’ ‘We know that economies flourish when there is widely accessible internet for businesses.’ In countries with 2Africa connections, Facebook says, local service providers will ‘obtain capacity in carrier-neutral data centers and open-access cable landing stations on a fair and equitable basis.’ Facebook expects the cable to bring the company closer to its goal, established as part of an earlier partnership with The Internet Society, of ensuring at least 80 percent of Africa’s internet traffic is sourced from local providers. The cable will also have a crossing between the Red Sea and the Mediterranean and provide improved connections in Italy and Spain. Facebook hasn’t confirmed the project’s costs but reports have suggested it could be as high as $1billion The cables are being built by Nokia Oyj’s Alcatel Submarine Networks, and will be buried deeper in the ocean floor than fiber optic cables typically are, to protect it from ship anchors and other environmental threats. The cable will feature a new fiber optic technology, called Spatial Division Mutiplexing (SDM1), which promises better performance and more data than older fiber optic cable technology. Facebook hasn’t stated a cost for the project but Bloomberg reports it could be close to $1billion. Despite 2Africa’s impressive ambitions, the record for longest undersea cable in the world still belongs to the 24,000 mile Sea-Me-We 3 cable that runs through Germany, Saudi Arabia, India, China, and Australia.
