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.

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.

Woes With Saudi Arabia

Richard Branson was in the news recently as last week, the Financial Times reported that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has canceled a feasibility study with their company. The country’s decision came after Branson criticized them for being involved with Jamal Khashoggi, the famous journalist who recently died away in murder!

Things Have Been Strange

Things have been a little strange as far as Branson is concerned. He is well known for his eccentric styles and appearances. He has always ventured in experiences some people cannot even think of. Moreover, he also seems a little crazy but he is the BOSS of all.

More than a year ago, his company announced that Branson will be joining the company’s board of directors. It also revealed that Richard Branson also made an undisclosed investment in the company. This led the company to rebrand itself and call itself ‘Virgin Hyperloop One”.

In a statement to Reuters, Richard Branson said that it is time for the company’s evolution and, therefore, the company needs someone who is more focused on the business plus its opportunities.

While commenting further, he said that it will not be easy for him to commit to it as he has devoted a significant portion of time to philanthropic ventures. He is also a part of many businesses in the Virgin Group itself.

For now, Virgin Group has not commented on the situation. However, this is a developing story so we will update you as we go!

Canada Cannabis Legalization

How To Order Cannabis Online In Canada Through Shopify

How To Order Cannabis Online In Canada Through Shopify

Canada has legalized Weed and one thing that might shock you is that you might be able to order it online; thanks to a firm based in Ottawa.

Shopify, it seems, will be leading the online shopping experience of these users, who flocked to get their stock online, after it was legalized in the country. Shopify, a Canadian e-commerce giant, is the one to watch for some time now then. Moreover, Shopify has also been chosen to design the retail platform of many states. These include British Columbia, Ontario and others.

VP and GM of Shopify, Loren Padelford, had a lot to comment on the matter. Keeping it short, he said that here, they are being the “facilitators of technology”.

“We want to give people the platform to sell whatever they like, as long as its legal”.

Moreover, he made it clear that marijuana is not that special to Shopify as are other things. He added that it is the same as clothing, spa services and others. Essentially, what they are trying to say is that marijuana is the same as other products. Moreover, their point is that now that it is legal to use it,  they are making it easy for people to get it.

For now, in Canada, there is no same day delivery for online shoppers but still, you can place your orders online and that’s a catch! People who waited for it to get legalized in the country have to wait for some time to get their stock.

The Delay

New reports suggest that the workers on Canada Post are going on a strike and that could delay shipments of the drug.

The ongoing negotiations are predicted to affect the mail delivery, some say.

Since the drug is already so popular, the bargaining table is ready. Moreover, even though the parcels COULD grow exponentially, there can be delays.

Legalization, they say, is an on going procedure and not something you can achieve one day. VP of Shopify also acknowledges that they will have to work harder after its legalization.

Nonetheless, the fact that you can order your weed online in Canada is a plus point for retailers and consumers alike!

Top Tech Stories 2018

Technology is superseding expectations every day. 2018 brought some surprises with regards to that and we saw some top stories emerging on the forefront.

This year, some stories emerged on the top and even we couldn’t help but admire the heights technology has reached this year.

If you have missed out, here are the top 4 tech stories of this year.

Top Stories: Self Driving Tech By Telsa

Elon Musk is a name that everybody knows of today. Elon is actively involved in social media stories too and is also known for his wit sometimes.

Telsa, owned by Musk, made rounds this year with its self-driving cars. Fully autonomous vehicles are now a thing, as they hit the streets this year of a major US city with no driver driving the car.

It’s a big deal for sure.

Telsa showcases the Semi, Model S and the new Roadster that made big rounds this year.

Self-driving cars are here to stay. The technology, which developed in 2017, has now emerged as a massive deal in 2018.

Top stories: Self Driving Cars

Top Stories: Cryptocurrency Rise

Cryptocurrency is no new phenomenon. In 2017, cryptocurrency dropped big time but it is still an attractive catch. Why? Simply because crypto was asked by hackers as ransom and payment to unlock big things such as WannaCry infected computers.

Cryptocurrency is the future of currency, some say, and therefore, a major development this year too.

Top Stories: Susan Fowler On Uber’s Sexual Culture

A former employee of Uber, Susan Fowler, revealed this year that Uber’s culture is toxic and rife with sexual advances.

In a post called “Reflecting On One Very, Very Strange Year At Uber“, she wrote that the company has people who fully harass you, even if they are the top performers.

Silicon Valley still deals with sexual harassment by in large and people who speak up about it have to bear the brunt. Or in simple words, deal with the consequences.

World's Thinnest Phone

The “World’s Thinnest Phone” Is Here

By on October 18, 2018

The “World’s Thinnest Phone” Is Here

The “World’s Thinnest Phone” is here and comes with an exciting new feature to incorporate Business Cards.

You can’t do much without business cards. Business Cards have now sort of becoming a necessity and with the incorporation of business cards, I’d say The phone should be a keeper for ‘the other work’.

What it is bringing to the table is simplicity and design.

The Thinnest Phone is made in Japan and it comes with a cardholder inside.

Being called ‘The ‘Card Phone’, KY-O1L, the phone has been manufactured by Kyocera. However, the phone will be coming to NTT Docomo.

The “World’s Thinnest Phone” Is Here

Size And Other Measures

Furthermore, The World’s Thinnest Phone has the same footprint as a credit card. It is not bigger than 5.3mm and it weighs 47g.

Additionally, Docomo is calling the phone the thinnest and lightest phone available in the phone. With a 2.8-inch monochrome e-paper screen, the phone has a 380mAh battery on board and supports LTE connectivity.

Tiers Competition And Higher Volumes

New phones made a good advent in 2019 and companies are consistently trying to up their game.

The phone comes with LTE connectivity as well.

The phone also has a camera on board, an App Store and a smart web browser.

While Docomo is saying that this is the Thinnest Phone, others are contradicting.

The New Phone And Its Features

They are saying that The Moto Z phone, which was launched in 2016 was under a 5.2 mm thick screen and claim that it is their thinnest. The lack of camera on the new thin phone, however, makes it Quite Thin!

As far as the price of the new KY-01L is concerned; it is 32,000 Yen- $300. It isn’t a lot to pay, considering that it is going to be really easy for you to carry it around at all times too. The Thinnest Phone means comfort and ease.

Additionally, with a browser on hand and board, the new phone can be a good companion.
