A much-hyped network upgrade called “5G” means different things to different people.

To industry proponents, it’s the next huge innovation in wireless internet. To the U.S. government, it’s the backbone technology of a future that America will wrestle with China to control. To many average people, it’s simply a mystery.

5G is a new technical standard for wireless networks — the fifth, naturally — that promises faster speeds; less lag, or “latency,” when connecting to the network; and the ability to connect many devices to the internet without bogging it down. 5G networks will ideally be better able to handle more users, lots of sensors and heavy traffic.

The “iPhone 12” could include a faster Face ID authentication than currently offered, a leaker claims, as well as an enhanced version of digital zoom that is assisted by advancements in computational photography.

In the days before Apple is anticipated to launch a new collection of iPhones, more leaks about what to expect are surfacing by various sources. One such leak from a well-established leaker centers around the photographic capabilities of the inbound models.

According to a series of tweets from “@Pineeaks,” a Twitter account operated by Max Winebach, Apple is still planning to ship a “dynamic zoning algorithm” for the TrueDepth camera array. The algorithm would enable the Face ID biometric authentication system to acquire a user’s face at a faster rate, which will shave off fractions of a second from the entire Face ID unlocking process.

The tweet list, spotted by MacRumors also claims Apple

COVID-19 has created a big impact on businesses globally. Companies are making drastic adjustments to their expenditures just to survive this unprecedented economic crisis. Those that previously relied on paid online advertisements are left with no choice but to put their campaigns on hold indefinitely.

Google and Facebook Ad management companies like Australian Internet Advertising (AIA) saw a sharp decline in their clients because businesses started reducing their spending on paid ads.

AIA is an eight year old digital marketing agency which has already established itself as one of the premium  Google ads management  companies in Australia. It is headed by co-founder and director William Polson.

The SanDisk Extreme and the Sandisk Extreme Pro are a pair of speedy external SSDs that also have the hardware to keep your data safe and secure. The more expensive SanDisk Extreme Pro claims speeds of up to 2000MB/s for both read and write, while the regular SanDisk Extreme offers transfer speeds of up to 1050MB/s read and 1000MB/s write.

This puts the new SanDisk Extreme Pro among some of the fastest non-Thunderbolt 3 external drives on the market, without having to put up with the more limited compatibility of Intel’s connection standard. Tom’s Hardware has already put the 2TB version of the drive through its paces and notes that it delivers “very strong sequential read and write performance” over the latest 20Gbps USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 standard, and it even outperformed some Thunderbolt 3 drives in certain workloads. (The non-Pro SanDisk Extreme, meanwhile, uses the slower USB 3.2 Gen

  • Nebojsa Radakovic shares insights.
