Chrome Actions will turn the address bar into a command prompt

The web browser address bar has long ceased simply being a place where you type in a website's URL or address. In fact, there is a growing trend these days to actually hide those addresses in the address bar, ironic as that may sound. That input field has pretty much become a mini search engine where you type what you're looking for without having to go to Google or Bing explicitly. In the current Chrome release, it will even let you type in commands to control the browser without having to go through menus and settings.

Fujifilm GFX100 can now produce 400MP images with a firmware update

Fujifilm GFX100 can now produce 400MP images with a firmware update

Given the onslaught of smartphones, camera makers have had to step up to offer features that would be difficult to pull off with a mobile device. Most have started turning DSLRs and ILCs into webcams, for example, to ride on the wave of video conferencing platforms today. Fujifilm has yet another such feature that would probably be impossible with smartphones today, allowing the 102MP GFX100 mirrorless camera to generate pictures with 400MP resolutions.

ZTE is still a security threat according to FCC decision

ZTE is still a security threat according to FCC decision

Some might presume that recent political changes in the US government might weaken the campaign against certain US companies but it is far too early to count those eggs. The current government still holds the power and, as far as the Trump administration is concerned, nothing has really changed. Huawei is still on its entity list and TikTok still risks getting banned next month. And according to a recent FCC order, ZTE remains a national security threat because of its potential to be used for state-sanctioned espionage.

TikTok given another seven days to sell its US operations

TikTok given another seven days to sell its US operations

Almost like some of the smooth dance moves you can see on the social network, TikTok has again narrowly dodged what could be the fatal deadline that would end it, at least in the US. As the new November 27 deadline approaches, owner ByteDance was given another week to convince the US government not to ban it outright. That remains a quest of Herculean proportions as the Chinese company's multiple proposals have been repeatedly rejected already.

Samsung One UI 3.0 beta for Galaxy Note 10 ends, Galaxy S10 begins

Android 11 was released to the public on September 8, 2020. In the old world order, it wouldn't be until January or February the following year at the earliest before Samsung Galaxy phone owners would even hear anything about the update from Samsung. In less than three months, however, Samsung has already rolled out betas for its One UI 3.0, based on Android 11, of course, to its most recent flagships. Granted, it's still in beta testing but things are seemingly on track for a stable release soon given how things are moving smoothly except for one specific case.

Windows 10 might install and run Android apps directly next year

Windows 10 might install and run Android apps directly next year

Once upon a time, Windows was the operating system that ran the world, with Mac OS a distant second and Linux holding an invisible world of networks and servers. Today, however, not only have Linux and macOS risen up the ranks, there is also Android, iOS, iPadOS, and even Chrome OS to contend with. Rather than completely conceding defeat, Microsoft is instead embracing some of these rival platforms, with rumors of a deeper integration with Android that would let its mobile apps run directly on Windows 10 by 2021 at the earliest.

Disney+ Star might just swallow up Hulu, ESPN+, and more

This week we've gotten word that the next major release from Disney won't be additional content inside Disney+. While the company's main streaming service will continue to get programming suitable for the whole family, Disney+ Star will presumably get the rest of the content to which Disney currently has the streaming rights. That includes content from ABC, FX, Searchlight Pictures, and 20th Century Studios.

Groundbreaking study finally explains how the Sun shines

Italy's Borexino detector has confirmed a decades-old theory, finding the first-ever evidence of a carbon-nitrogen-oxygen (CNO) cycle that produces neutrinos in our Sun.

Electric crockpots sold at big box stores recalled over exploding lids

Electric crockpots sold at select big box stores like Walmart have been recalled after dozens of reports concerning exploding lids. While the crockpots can still be used as a slow cooker, according to the recall notice published by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, consumers should avoid using the pressurized cooking modes because the lid may suddenly 'detach.'
