Google has released a new version of Chrome that it claims will make your browser faster and give your laptop battery extra life.
“Jam packed full of Super Amazing Things.”
“Every 3 weeks, we polish up the Pinterest app to make it faster and better than ever.”
“To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store every 2 weeks…Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability. As other new features become available, we’ll highlight those for you in the app.”
Mobile app publishers have begun to play fast and loose with their release notes, which is the area where they’re supposed to communicate the changes shipping with the most recent app update to the end users. This inattention to detail is a disservice to users, who no longer have the benefit of understanding what the updated app will now do — or not do — as the case may be.
Without details, users can’t make an informed decision about whether they want to install that update at all.
They don’t know what functionality has changed or how the user experience is being affected. They don’t know if the changes are even bad or good. For example, users wouldn’t know if a favorite feature is being pulled, or if the app has made improvements that now lets it work better with certain devices…including perhaps, theirs.
I’ll be honest: Every episode of Crash Course Astronomy has been fun to write, edit, and shoot. They all really have. But the past few episodes, and the next few to come, deal with one of my favorite topics in astronomy: What happens when a star decides to give up the ghost.
When stars die all sorts of fantabulous things happen: They explode, they leave behind bizarre ultradense objects, they fling gas into space that creates amazing and breathtaking shapes and colors.
This week, CCA is about what happens after stars like the Sun die: They become white dwarfs, and in the process blow out a series of winds that become one of the most beautiful sights in the sky: planetary nebulae.
Microsoft aimed to take on the 'post-PC' world with Windows 8/8.1 getting rid of its hallmark Start menu and the desktop, optimizing the UI mainly for touch devices. The move did not go down well with a large number of desktop and laptop users who're loyal to their keyboards and mice, and did not feel at home with full-screen modern UI apps, hidden charms menus and several inconsistencies. Microsoft tried to mitigate some issues with Windows 8.1 and some incremental updates but the damage had been done.
The Redmond giant decided to jump directly to Windows 10 and decided to keep a balance between the old and new. While the new operating system unifies different devices, it also optimises the interface as per the device. It's been almost a month that we've been using a Windows 10 PC+tablet hybrid to find out if it's worth an upgrade (or even a switch).
