Recently Facebook was granted a patent in the US for a system which detects items like alcoholic drinks and snacks from users’ photos. Facebook plans to turn its users into advertisement stars through this automatic scanning system. Facebook would take those pictures and send them to the respective brands and those brands will use these pictures to post for other Facebook users (if the said brands choose to do this). The way this system works can be explained better with an example: Let us say that you posted the above picture on Facebook. It has Coca-cola, Jack Daniels and Grey...

Just eleven years ago, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) released the Display Port 1.0 standard with an 8.64Gbit/s data rate. Since then, multiple improvements have been made, but not as large as the ones announced last week. VESA unveiled the new DisplayPort 2.0 specification with the max payload of 77.37Gbps.

The new near 80Gbps max bandwidth is 10 times of that of the original DisplayPort 1.0 and 3x more than its latest update (i.e. DisplayPort 1.4) to the standard.

Just last year Google has released the Pixel Slate, its first Chrome OS-fueled tablet. With two more tablets being in development, it comes as a surprise that the company will scrap these projects and indefinitely stop developing tablets. The tech giant announced in an internal meeting that it will shift its focus on laptops and smartphones instead.

The company also added that it will show more than two results from the same site in some cases when the results are particularly relevant to the query. In general, Google will treat subdomains as...

PowerShell 7 is Just Around the Corner

Last month, Microsoft announced that PowerShell 7 will be the next release of PowerShell. Recently, a blogpost was published by Steve Lee, the Principal Software Engineering Manager at PowerShell, which discloses details about the areas that will be investigated for the PowerShell 7 release. What is PowerShell? Most have heard of the Command Prompt, but majority are unaware that Windows Server comes with a way more powerful tool, the Windows PowerShell. In fact, it is intended to replace the Command Prompt, since it delivers more power and control over the Windows operating system. Windows...

Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 were both great technological breakthroughs in the hosting fields, introducing new features which are essential for any modern system, such as a shift from 32-bit to 64-bit computing, advanced analytics and budding server virtualization technologies. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, including Microsoft’s support for these industry-forming server operating systems. As many know, misfortune never comes alone, so along with their Windows Server 2008 versions, Microsoft is also discontinuing support for SQL Server 2008 and 2008...
