Royal Rebellion? Meghan Markle and Prince Harry say the Queen doesn’t own the word ‘ROYAL‘: On Harry and Meghan’s official website, the pair detail exactly how the transition will take place while also insisting that the Queen does not have any ownership over the term “Royal.” “While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020,” Harry and Meghan wrote on their official website.

Italy cancels Venice Carnival in bid to halt spread of virus: Italy stepped up measures Sunday to ban public gatherings amid rapidly rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in the country and a third death from the virus, calling off the famed Venice Carnival attended by thousands of revelers.
The decision to call off the Carnival was announced by Veneto regional Gov. Luca Zaia as the numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases in Italy soared to 152, the largest number outside Asia. Source: https://apnews.com/bda63e372d4d0e5f393744e2cff6fdf1

 

Don’t worry, Alexa and friends only record you up to 19 times a day!: Have you ever wondered how often your smart speaker accidentally activates itself? A new study from Northeastern University reveals activations of smart speakers when it wasn’t you who uttered any wake word occur between 1.5 and 19 times a day.
More entertainingly, the average time of activation is 43 seconds, which means that 43 seconds of your conversations might be recorded by the kindly souls at Smart Speaker HQ.
But what are you supposed to do about it? Hope any conversation that might inadvertently be recorded will be so banal that no one will use it against you? Well, this week Robert Frederick, a former manager at Amazon Web Services, told the BBC that if he wants privacy he knows how to get it. He simply turns his Alexa device off.
Perhaps these smart speakers don’t make your life so much easier after all. Full article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/dont-worry-alexa-and-friends-only-record-you-up-to-19-times-a-day/

 

Wind Turbine Blades Can’t Be Recycled, So They’re Piling Up in Landfills: Companies are searching for ways to deal with the tens of thousands of blades that have reached the end of their lives. A wind turbine’s blades can be longer than a Boeing 747 wing, so at the end of their lifespan they can’t just be hauled away. First, you need to saw through the lissome fiberglass using a diamond-encrusted industrial saw to create three pieces small enough to be strapped to a tractor-trailer.
Tens of thousands of aging blades are coming down from steel towers around the world and most have nowhere to go but landfills. In the U.S. alone, about 8,000 will be removed in each of the next four years. Europe, which has been dealing with the problem longer, has about 3,800 coming down annually through at least 2022, according to BloombergNEF. It’s going to get worse: Most were built more than a decade ago, when installations were less than a fifth of what they are now.
Built to withstand hurricane-force winds, the blades can’t easily be crushed, recycled or repurposed. That’s created an urgent search for alternatives in places that lack wide-open prairies.

‘Doors will close for Brits in EU’- Why the UK’s post-Brexit immigration plan has sparked alarm: The UK government announced its planned new immigration system this week and it immediately sparked concern for the future of those Britons who want to move to the EU in future. How easy it will be for Brits to move to France, Italy or Spain in future could depend on what kind of system the UK puts in place after Brexit, which is why many are concerned. Brits living in Europe now could face tough choices in the future and those hoping to move to the EU could find doors are closed.
The UK government said this week it wanted to take “full control” of its borders by installing an Australian-style points-based system, that would effectively close the doors to unskilled EU workers as well as those who can’t speak English to the required standard. What will the blow-back be on UK citizens when they wish to relocate? https://www.thelocal.es/20200219/this-will-mean-nothing-good-for-brits-in-europe-uks-post-brexit-immigration-system-sparks-alarm

 

Android Apps Spamming Users: Google has banned nearly 600 Android apps from the Play Store for bombarding users with disruptive ads and violating its advertising guidelines. Although Google didn’t name the specific apps in question, many of the apps — which had been installed more than 4.5 billion times — primarily targeted English-speaking users and were mainly from developers based in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and India.
Google has a strict policy with regards to adware and disruptive ads in general. “We don’t allow apps that contain deceptive or disruptive ads. Ads must only be displayed within the app serving them. We consider ads served in your app as part of your app. The ads shown in your app must be compliant with all our policies.”
The internet giant has also been leveraging Google Play Protect as a means to secure devices from potentially harmful applications by combining a mix of on-device protections and a cloud-based machine learning infrastructure to routinely scan apps, detect malicious apps faster and at a larger scale without any human supervision.
But the app storefront has come under criticism in recent months for its failure to rein in malware-laced apps, which have been installed by millions of users without realizing their insidious nature. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2020/02/android-adware-apps-banned.html

Scam Alert: Fake Windows 11 and Windows 12 Installation DVDs Being Sold. There is no such thing as Windows 11 or 12. If you are confused by the Windows 12 name, and wonder whether this may be a new operating platform that Microsoft may be working on, then wonder no more. For it’s not. It is simply a free distribution of Linux developed by an over eager developer that has slapped the Windows 12 name on it.
Windows 12 Lite was recently discovered at a local computer fair selling for 15UK, where it was being sold by a small company that is pitching this as an alternate to the Windows platform.
And not just pitching it, they’re making some tall claims on their official website, which itself looks like something straight out of the nineties, saying Windows 12 is far faster, and free of all the annoyances of Windows 10.
On closer inspection, it becomes clear that this is simply a customized version of Linux Lite, with a look that shares similarities with Windows. You have flat icons to go with a display that borrows heavily from Windows 10 to give that familiar feeling.
There are serious reasons why you should not bother with downloading or buying Windows 12 Lite. For starters, the name itself violates Microsoft’s trademarks, and the company may already be taking steps to take it down due to copyright infringement.
Then there is the fact that Linux Lite is not a particular secure distro to begin with, unlike some of the other popular ones that are more thoroughly audited for security and privacy concerns.
Moral of the story? You don’t want anything to do with Windows 12 Lite, at least not on a daily basis. More details at: https://www.windowschimp.com/windows-12-lite/

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunity to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. Michelle/La Herradura. I can be reached at

The first large scale operation against pirate IPTV users worldwide begins in Italy: Italian Police Report 223 Pirate IPTV Subscribers to the Judicial Authorities. According to the authorities, the targeted users risk a hefty fine as well as a potential prison sentence. According to the law enforcement agency, the investigation remains ongoing. This means that more IPTV subscribers may be identified and reported in the future.
The subscribers in question are being held responsible for the crime of “receiving stolen goods.” If found guilty, they risk a penalty of 25,000 euros as well as an eight-year prison sentence, the authorities state.
If and how many of the reported IPTV subscribers will indeed be prosecuted is unknown. However, the operation does show that subscribers are not untouchable, which will likely be used as a warning message to others.

Spain Cracks Down On Illegal IPTV: Spanish Internet Providers Now Using “Dynamic Blocking” To Stop Access To Pirate IPTV & Torrent Content. A Spanish court has handed down an order that will compel local ISPs to block pirate sites and services. Dynamic blocking orders can take several forms, with the most basic targeting relatively static services such as torrent and web-based streaming portals.

Have Spain’s property websites been price fixing?: On Wednesday Spain’s antitrust watchdog announced it was investigating several property websites in Spain suspected of using algorithms to fix prices. “Such practices would consist of the coordination of prices and other commercial conditions by real estate intermediaries,” the CNMC watchdog said in a press release.
In simple terms, the sites all used linked algorithms to coordinate prices and commissions on both sale and rental properties offered on their sites, a practice which in turn led to pushing up the final cost of the property to the buyer or renter.

Amazon Ring & Google Nest Smart Doorbells Make 2-Factor Authentication Mandatory Following Recent Hacks, And Why This Easy Fix For The Makers Is A Bad Idea For Consumers: Two-factor authentication is an effective defense because it acts as a deterrent, preventing unauthorized users from gaining access to your account even when they have your username and password. The problem is that many hacks are inside jobs, where employees of the security device management company share personal info of customers with criminals. When you login to the doorbell cam app, and are sent a code to your mobile, employees will know exactly how far you are from home by the mobile tower your mobile connects to when you pick up the code message! They can then alert criminals that you are away, and approximately how long it will be until you can get home. In my opinion that risk is significant and users of these devices should be made aware of this threat vector. Reference: https://thehackernews.com/2020/02/ring-cameras-cybersecurity.html

 

TRE Radio: Today TRE presenters are saying that some local banks will no longer accept cash deposits after 11:30 am. After that you may only make cash deposits via the cash machines. As teller made deposits are instantly logged, but machine deposits can take several days to show up in your balance, you will need to plan appropriately.
If you find your bank doing this you may wish to alert other DigameXtra readers.

Phoenix Events: The Phoenix club is based in Torre del Mar.
March
6th – Gib €12pp 08.30 start
27th – Trip to Ecija, Seville Province with guide €22pp includes visiting 3 monuments. Also known by the nickname of the “city of towers”, because 11 towers, nine steeples, and a great many churches, palaces and viewing points rise above its houses, Écija constitutes one of finest collections of monumental buildings in the province. Bordering on the province of Córdoba, 88 km from Seville, stands Écija, a wealthy cereal producing town on the banks of the river Genil. It was Phoenician and later Roman, from which period it still preserves a splendid collection of mosaics. Outstanding among the religious monuments are the churches of Santa María, from the 18th century; San Gil, from the 15th century and in the Gothic-Mudejar style; Concepción, from the 17th century; and Descalzos, a baroque church from the 17th century. Prominent examples of civil architecture are the wonderful palaces, some of them declared to be National Monuments, like that of the Marquis of Benamejí, from the 18th century, or Peñaflor, famous for its long balcony and its paintings on the façade. The squares, fountains and miradors complete this exceptionally beautiful urban and architectural ensemble.
April
3rd – Gib €12pp 08.30 start
All our trips include the driver’s gratuity of €1.
Pick ups in Maro, BP Garage Torrox, Algarrobo, Torre del Mar and the A1 Garden Centre – depending on direction of travel

DoctorLaptop’s famous Annual Clean & TuneUp Service: For Windows & Mac. New “fileless” malware formats evade standard anti-virus programs, making it difficult for typical users to “dis-infect” computers themselves with free, consumer level tools.  If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing with advanced professional grade tools is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? If you did, the engine replacement  will cost far more than if you had properly maintained it with monthly oil topups and an oil change once or twice a year. It’s the same with computers, you should do a quick cleanup yourself once a month, and get an annual professional service. I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files and permissions, replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use a 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows/Mac+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
ALSO: Computer and tablet repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO, business computer maintenance & security service.
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android.
Contact: doctorlaptop AT protonmail DOT com or call 675 993 069 (no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap)

Watch Repair: These days watch repairers are hard to find. If you go to a watch dealer they are more interested in selling you a new one, so a good reasonably priced reliable repairer is worth travelling to.
I can recommend Guillermo Dominguez. He has a workshop on the third floor of 9 Calle Comedias, 29008 Malaga. There are two car parks near the building. His email is gdominguezleon@hotmail.com and his phone number is 952 22 17 19. He speaks just Spanish.
He is a registered repairer of Omega, Citizen, Suunto, Tag Heuer, Tissot, Calvin Klein, Certina, Zenith, Balmain, Mido, Rado, Longines etc.
I have had 3 dive computers and a watch repaired by him – the quality of his work is outstanding. Vic/Puente Don Manuel. victor.calland at googlemail DOT com

Windows Alert by DoctorLaptop. Bad Updates Released Last Week!: KB4524244 and KB4502496. All versions of Windows.
Microsoft’s February security updates, released last week, came with plenty of technical bumps. Microsoft reported issues after its Feb. 11 security updates got applied.
If these updates installed correctly you can leave them alone. The problems occur when the update installation fails. Evidence of a failed update install include corrupt User Profile (error message- User Profile Cannot Be Found, at login), or a cryptic popup message that “you do not have permission to initiate a shutdown” when you try to log off.
If you find yourself with one of these problems, bring it in to DoctorLaptop in Torrox Costa for repair (675 993 069). Unless you know what you are doing, poking around aimlessly attempting to fix it will just make it harder for me to sort out. (DIYer Hint: Connect computer to your router with an ethernet cable so Windows can access repair files if necessary as wifi will be unavailable at this point. Boot from a recovery flash drive to access recovery tools. You may have to try several recovery methods before one works. If you don’t already know what these tools are and in what order to run them, then this task is probably above your user level! Watch some Youtube video tutorials before starting.)  This is not the place to try the poke-and-hope method! These tools can cause severe damage if used improperly. On some models, especially low budget or older laptops upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10, the repair can be very complicated, requiring an off-line BIOS recovery flashing (processor micro-code re-install) before the Windows system recovery can be attempted. Beware, an incorrect BIOS flash can permenently break your processor!

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialed from Spain. I am getting complaints from readers who say some provided phone numbers are being submitted with a variety of country codes and are either missing, or have extra, digits. These are unreachable, so you are missing replies.
When the UK leaves the EU on 31 January, there will be a transition period until the end of 2020, during which virtually all EU rules and regulations, including on mobile roaming anywhere in the EU, will continue to apply. What happens after that will depend on what is agreed about the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU, which could include the abolition of, or limits to, mobile roaming charges. Considering the way the EU regulators are attacking big tech companies over poor security and unpaid taxes, I would not expect roaming privilages to be continued after 2020. Using a non-Spanish mobile number also excludes some readers who use PAYG mobile plans that do not allow, or charge more, for international calls. My Spanish friends consider this rude for people who are guests in their country. As they explain, if you were in London and wanted a local service, would you call a Spanish mobile number? Probably not. -Ed.

Heart doctors ‘held back stent death data’: Not all the patients were recruited at the same time. Some were recruited in 2011, others over the years that followed.
So, when the first results were published in 2016, the doctors doing the trial knew there was data about what had happened to some of the patients five years after their stent or heart surgery procedure. But they chose to look only at what happened up to three years after the patients’ procedures and publish that data.
Prof Nick Freemantle, a biostatistician at University College London, said: “If somebody had died three years and one day into the trial, that death wouldn’t have been counted in the results.
“I’m absolutely appalled that they’ve done this,” he said.
“I’ve taken a straw poll of my professional colleagues and it draws disbelief that people would do this,” he said. Full article at: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51539112

 

Spain launches dedicated Brexit hotline: Callers can ring 060 when in Spain or  +34 902 887060 if calling from abroad and an automated system will offer the choice of either Spanish or English and ask if you are Spanish citizen wanting to live in the UK or a Brit in Spain. https://www.thelocal.es/20200218/spain-launches-dedicated-brexit-hotline

 

A Possible Explanation for the Lack of Customer Services in Spanish Retail Establishments?: In Spanish the word “whistleblower” doesn’t exist. It is revealing that the closest equivalents all have negative connotations, sounding more like snitch, sneak, toad or rat. Another word that doesn’t appear in Spanish but is widely used in English is “accountability” – taking responsibility for one’s public actions.

Euromillions: results for Tuesday, February 18, 2020. The winning combination in the draw of Euromillions of the Tuesday, February 18 of 2020 corresponds to that formed by the following numbers: 11, 32, 34, 38 and 47 and the stars 02 Y 10.

Strange Objects In The Sky?: The alarm came last night on social networks. Several people shared videos and photographs of strange lights moving in the sky of Tenerife. Some shared the video among their followers, others did so by asking the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics what these images were due to.
In a short time the mystery was solved. The fifth deployment of Starlink communications satellites from Cape Canaveral continued their journey to place themselves in the final orbit and illuminated the sky of the Canary Islands in an incredible way.

Costa Del Sol Weather Forecast- Expect a drop in temperature and rain from Tuesday until Thursday morning: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/02/17/costa-del-sol-weather-forecast-expect-a-drop-in-temperature-and-rain-from-tuesday-until-thursday-morning/

 

This new technology generates electricity “out of nowhere”: Scientists at the University of Massachusetts- Amherst have developed the device. Named ‘Air-gen’, it connects electrodes to protein nanowires in such a way that electric current is generated from water vapor naturally present in the atmosphere. “We are literally producing electricity from nowhere,” Yao notes.
The new technology developed in Yao’s laboratory is non-polluting, renewable and low cost. It can generate energy even in areas with extremely low humidity, such as the Sahara desert.
It has significant advantages over other forms of renewable energy, such as solar and wind, Lovley says, because unlike these other sources of renewable energy, the ‘Air-gen’ does not require sunlight or wind, and “even works indoors”.

The Bank of England’s gold vaults hold £194bn worth of gold bars: If you stacked them all on top of each other, they would be the same height as 46 Eiffel Towers. They hardly ever let anyone in to film, but the BBC’s Frank Gardner has been given access to the Bank of England’s gold vault.

 

Pets in China forced to wear bizarre makeshift face masks made by owners amid fears they may catch deadly coronavirus: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said there is no evidence to suggest pets can be infected with the new strain of coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,000 people and infected around 43,000 others worldwide.
However China’s National health commission has taken a different stance.
Spokesman and epidemiologist Li Lanjuan said: “If pets go out and have contact with an infected person, they have the chance to get infected.
“By then, the pets need to be isolated. In addition to people, we should be careful with all other mammals, especially pets.”
As a result, sales of pet masks are rocketing in China. Others are customizing human masks to accomodate their pets, in some cases with rather humorous results.  Full article, more pics and PHOTOCREDIT: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10947705/pets-china-makeshift-face-masks-coronavirus/

 

A plague of locusts has descended on East Africa. Entire fields stripped in 30 seconds: East Africa is in the midst of a crisis that sounds like something out of the Book of Exodus: A plague of locusts is spreading across the region, threatening the food supply of tens of millions. City-sized swarms of the dreaded pests are wreaking havoc as they descend on crops and pasturelands, devouring everything in a matter of hours. The scale of the locust outbreak, which now affects seven East African countries, is like nothing in recent memory. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/02/locust-plague-climate-science-east-africa/

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunity to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. Michelle/La Herradura. I can be reached at

Breaking News: Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons for “serious breaches” of UEFA’s financial fair play regulations. The Premier League champions will be barred from competing in UEFA club competitions and fined €30m (£24.9m), European football’s governing body announced. https://news.sky.com/story/manchester-city-banned-from-champions-league-for-two-seasons-11934156

 

British people could have to pay more tax on properties they rent out on the Costa: Non-resident Brits, who buy half of all properties on the market each year, may be taxed at a higher rate and won’t be able to deduct expenses.
At present EU citizens, although they are not resident in Spain, have to pay 19 per cent tax on the rental income they receive, after deducting related expenses including the commissions charged by holiday rental platforms.
Once the Brexit transition period has ended, because these owners will be residents of a non-EU country, they will have to pay 24 per cent tax on the gross rental income and they will not be able to deduct any type of associated expenses.
