Fortnitemares News: Fortnitemares Is Ending This Sunday

It’s all about Fortnite news these days isn’t it?

Well, let’s start recalling..

If I can remember and recall clearly, all people talk about these days is; Fortnite games, fortnite cheats, fortnite skins, fortnite costumes and others!

Oh, and let’s not forget, the ‘other skins‘ that are going to be revealed in fortnite too!

Fortnitemares news is abuzz and we have a major announcement to make here at Tech Unveiled!

*Drum Roll*

This is sad news for fortnitemares news followers is that Fortnitemares is coming to an end.

Everyone knew that Fortnitemares is definitely being launched and introduced for Halloween but I don’t think many people anticipated it ending so early.

But, today, Epic Games confirmed that it is indeed coming to an end and Sunday will be the last day to play it.

Fortnitemare news: Fortnitemare ends THIS Sunday!

The juicy part, however, for fortnitemare news is that it is coming to an end WITH a bang.

Well, that’s expected of Epic Games anyways.

According to an announcement by Epic Games on Twitter, the Halloween special include in the game will end this Sunday.

Moreover, the company also cleared that Fortnitemares was only a one time occurrence and it will happen on Sunday, at 1PM ET (The Verge).

The developer, Epic Games, also encouraged Fortnite fans to hurry up, ‘login early and be in-match to witness the one-time event’.

Preclude to Fortnitemares

The entire buzz of Fortnitemares started last week. It represented a HUGE change for the game.

With Fortnitemares came new maps with awesome crystals that produced HORDES of monsters that looked like Zombies.

In a short period of time then, this special edition, due to end on SUNDAY, the whole Battle Royale, a Season 6 feature, changed drastically.

Not to forget to mention in this piece of fortnitemare news that Epic Games have had one-time events in the game previously too.

I remember in June, every Fortnite fan awaited the rocket launch which led to a dramatic rift towards and in the sky. That changed the game for sure! However, that too was a limited addition to the game.

The same is happening with Fortnitemares; it is confirmed fortnitemares news that Fortnite was a one-time event that’s coming to an end this Sunday.

Well, I am not quite sure what’s packed for Sunday but it IS going to be a big event.

However, if you know how good Fortnite Season 6 seems and looks, we can only expect good things.

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg

‘Grand Committee’ Set To Probe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

By on October 31, 2018

‘Grand Committee’ Set To Probe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

It clearly seems like Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (now owner of WhatsApp too) is in deep scrutiny.

Moreover, it appears that the UK-Canada joint ‘grand committee’ is urging Mark Zuckerberg to appear before them to answer certain questions.

According To Reports/Media

According to several reports, the Parliamentary Committees in Canada and Britain are both pleading Zuckerberg to testify. This will take place before a joint hearing of international lawmakers. The idea behind the scrutiny is to examine fake news and Internet as a whole.

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg.

Look, here’s the thing:

On Facebook, there’s a lot of news and media being shared and not all of it is true. In fact, most of what we read today is highlighted for one’s own motives and reasons. A lot of it is fake news too!

So, now, a UK-Canadian grand committee is now urging Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to come before the court and answer their queries.

Head of the UK parliament joint committee, Damian Collins, is also joining forces with his counterparts in Canada for this motive. The idea is to pressurise the Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to attend the hearings as he did before the European Parliament and US congress too.

The joint committee session is due to take place on November 27. It is being hosted by a grand committee. Other parliaments will also be attending it.

However, Collins did acknowledge that it is not possible for the Facebook CEO to be a part of every meeting or session. However, they feel that he is accountable for what his organisation is contributing to other countries. For that reason, they want him to be a part of it personally.

Facebook CEO: Mark Zuckerberg.

Problems With Facebook

Facebook is always under the radar for more than one reason.

This time, Mark Zuckerberg is being urged by the parliamentary forces in UK-Canada to be answerable for his actions. Moreover, and for what his site, Facebook is doing, posting and spreading.

Halloween 2018: Pumpkins

All Important Pointers To Remember This Halloween

All Important Pointers To Remember This Halloween

Are you excited for halloween this year?

Well, many things are coming up this Halloween that it is quite hard to keep count.

Celebrities are showcasing their costumes, while others cannot stop having their own fun.

There is so much going on, it is honestly hard to keep count.

Hence, today, I came up with an idea to sum up all that is going on at this very front.

What’s Special About Halloween?

Halloween is definitely one of the ‘most important’ times of the year; well, for some at least.

Moreover, it is only just Hours away. Can you believe it? Because I can’t. We’ve been talking about it for so long that it is hard to believe its here already!

Halloween At Work

"<yoastmark

Some offices celebrate halloween.

If you are looking to celebrate it at your workplace too, here are some important things you need to remember:

  1. Be Cautious About What You Wear: Don’t dress up if it is not a norm or thing in your office. Make sure that you always know what’s going on around you than looking like a fool about it all.
  2. Make Sure It Is ‘Work Friendly‘: Your costume should definitely be appropriate to wear to work! See, you don’t want to look obnoxious or make people fun of you. You don’t want people to point fingers at you. So, make sure you wear things that are comfortable and not confrontational from any point of view.
  3. Be Creative: Also, if you are dressing up for work, make sure you put emphasis on creativity. Make sure you are aware of what is in and what is not. You could also just put your focus on creativity to make sure that you are different and a league apart. Nobody wants to dress the same if it is a norm in work places. Therefore, make sure you put your creativity to use and come up with something unique.
  4. Choose Something Comfortable: You don’t want to go to work feeling unreal and out of place. Therefore, make sure you consider comfort before you go ahead. You have to spend an entire day at work with a costume so don’t forget that. Keep these things in mind and I think your halloween at work should go very smoothly.

Celebrations Among Celebrities

Pittsburgh shooting incident: Robert Bowers (Techunveiled)

GoDaddy Joins Others To Withdraw Gab Support After Pittsburgh Shooting Incident

By on October 29, 2018

GoDaddy Joins Others To Withdraw Gab Support After Pittsburgh Shooting Incident

Gab is under a lot of scrutiny after its name was recognised in the recent Pittsburgh shooting incident. It is also because Robert Bowers, the shooter at the Pittsburgh shooting incident, posted an image on the social network Gab with his weapons that he ‘recently bought’.

Tech giants such as Apple and Google have also withdrawn support from the company.

Now today, GoDaddy has also threatened to pull Gab’s domain. After GoDaddy’s announcement, Gab is down again.

The recent Pittsburgh shooting incident has caused a lot of uproar in America. Moreover, Gab is also allegedly linked to the shooting and hence, has faced a massive penalty for it.

With a far right following, Gab is a social network which has always been controversial.

Major Tech Giants Cut Gab Support

GoDaddy, a top hosting provider, has given 24 hours to the company to move to another hosting domain.

Other companies that have withdrawn support from Gab include:

  • PayPal
  • Joyent
  • Stripe
  • Medium

In an announcement, GoDaddy revealed that it has informed social networking site Gab that they have 24 hours to choose. They can move to another provider as they have violated their terms and services. After receiving complaints, GoDaddy investigated the matter and realised the site has content that instigates violence.

Gab is inaccessible at the moment through its website. It has stated on its website is “under attack” and is working to get it back online but with a new provider.

On its website, Gab’s statement reads that they have been smeared by mainstream media for defending free expression. They are working with law enforcement to ensure that justice is served for the Pittsburgh crime.

Contrarily, social network Gab also posted on Twitter that it will “likely be down for weeks”. Their statement followed the statement that Joyent’s decision to pull out support as a hosting provider has brought instability for the company.

However, their tweet today suggests that the website will be ‘back soon’.

It is clear that Gab is clearly involved in the Pittsburgh shooting incident.

Robert Bowers had a profile on Gab that came in front of the media after the incident.

At that moment, Gab bore the brunt of the shooting too. Soon after, it got threatened by major tech companies for withdrawing support.

On the other hand, today, GoDaddy, now, has cut off its support for the site, which is labelled as ‘neo-nazi’.

Google Nearby notifications: Disabled

Google Decides To Turn Off ” Google Nearby Notifications”

By on October 25, 2018

Google Decides To Turn Off ” Google Nearby Notifications”

New reports reveal Google has decided to discontinue Google Nearby notifications. The company revealed that it will take this action later this year.

Sources reveal that Android users were getting too much scam because of the feature. Google nearby notifications, which was launched in 2015, was used by many Android users.

However,

It became a target for marketers which lead to problems.

With Google Nearby notifications, Android users get pinged on any venture close to a location with say, beacons.

The feature was also not providing relevant content because these beacons would then send out spams and unnecessary notifications to phones.

Overall, users reported a bad experience with it.

Google Nearby notifications: Disabled
Google Nearby notifications: Disabled

Google’s Side

The whole point of launching the Google Nearby Notifications was to bring something that is useful for the users.

It said it wanted it to be a helpful assist that would tell users about free Wi-Fi’s, closely museum information or when you can expect the bus to arrive… Or just, well, any other information users could make use of.

Reports have also revealed that MANY Android users were disabling the Google Nearby Notifications. They expressed their frustrations on forums and social media. But in all of this, the marketers were only cashing. They then started to send ads according to the location of the users without even having the need of the actual app. Android users definitely couldn’t take it.

Keeping all of this in mind, tech giant Google announced that it has decided to discontinue the app.

In the company’s own words:

“We have a very high bar for the quality of content that we deliver to users, especially content that is delivered through notifications”.

So, when will Google remove the feature?

Very soon!

The Google Nearby notifications feature will stop disturbing you from December 6 2018 onwards.

Apple ‘New Safari Technology Preview 68’ Released

Sources have revealed that Apple has released a brand new update for its Safari Technology Preview (downloadlink).- Courtesy: Apple.

For those who don’t know:

Apple launched the Safari Technology Preview in 2016 to see the features that might come to different versions of Safari next. Essentially, it was launched to ‘test the waters’.

Now,

Apple has come up with a 68 release that involves bug fixes, web inspector services, webRTC, animations payment request, Apple Pay and others.

Safari Technology Preview: MacBook Pro
Safari Technology Preview: MacBook Pro

So now the big question:

Who is this update for?

The new Safari Technology Previous 68 release is for both macOS Mojave and macOS High Sierra users.

Lets not forget that Mojave is the latest Mac OS released to the public in September.

How To Get The Update?

If you want to download Safari Technology Preview 68 today, go to the Mac App Store and download the update. However, the update will only appear if you have the browser at hand.

You can’t really say that Apple has given users the ability to download Safari technology preview without reason. There is a reason behind it.

 

Apple’s main aim with the Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from different developers and gain insights on the browser development process.

You can, however, have both the Safari Technology Preview + Safari browser at hand.

The software was designed for designers but it does not need a proper account to download.

Tech giant Apple has been in the news for other reasons too. In the news today, it was revealed that Apple has been fined for slowing down phones deliberately.

Moreover, the new Apple event is also around the corner so there is a lot of speculation going around about the company these days.

Let’s see what the Cupertino based giant has in store ahead.

AT&T 5G Service: Launching Soon

AT&T Set To Launch “AT&T 5G Service” Very Soon

By on October 24, 2018

AT&T Set To Launch “AT&T 5G Service” Very Soon

Did you know:

AT&T is set to launch its 5G services and rumour has it that the new service will be available in a couple of weeks.

Reports reveal that the 5G network based on 3GPP 5G NR spec – AT&T is coming very soon.

During the start of the year, AT&T promised that it will be launching the 5G network by the end of this year. CEO of the company, John Donovan, however, confirmed today, that the new service will be launching very soon!

AT&T 5G Service: Launching Soon
AT&T 5G Service: Launching Soon

The best part is that this will be an authentic next generation 5G network, quite unsimilar to the 5G evolution network that came forth in 2017. The network launched last year worked on improving the LTE connections but this proper purpose built service is expected to bring a lot more.

We cannot doubt this news any further because there are no reasons to do so.

First,

AT&T announced itself that it will launch the 5G network solution.

However, now:

AT&T itself has REVEALED that the service will be here in the next couple of weeks.

However, AT&T is not the first in line with its AT&T 5G service but Verizon is.

Verizon launched its 5G network earlier in LA, Indianapolis, Houston and Sacramento. Verizon launched its services in October.

AT&T 5G Service: Launching Soon
AT&T 5G Service: Launching Soon

However, Verizon is different in the sense that it does not use the 3GPP 5G NR service but a different version of 5G TF. Note though, that the current network by Verizon is a fixed 5G network than a stationary home internet. It is not suitable for mobile devices.

If AT&T launches its AT&T 5G service network as said and according to plans, it will be the first network in the US to launch according to the 3GPP standards. This is big and it will improve the way we connect to the World Wide Web.

Reports also reveal that AT&T has been testing its 5G service in Atlanta, Waco, Oklahoma, Dallas, Charlotte and others.

Snapchat linked its users to TurboVote.org. It wanted to change the low voter turnout for young people.

Last in 2014, in the midterm elections, less than 1/5 people between 18-25 years of age cast their vote.

More than 78% of people between 18-24 reported Snapchat use. Therefore, Snapchat, as we all know, is a very popular platform already and now, it is coming to other uses as well.
