Tech News by DoctorLaptop

New EU Internet Copyright Filters Take Effect Today: YouTube, Facebook and all other major media and social media and news sites in the EU have begun filtering all media content posted online for copyright infringement. This is brand new so expect a bumpy start. They are bound to err on the side of safety by blocking some non-copyrighted content as they work out the bugs. Supposedly the wrongly blocked items will reappear as the Artificial Intelligence (AI) behind the filters learns and adapts. So if you can’t find your favorite funny cat video online, or an article on a website you often visit has vanished, you now know what happened. This law only applies to companies with gross sales of $10M or more annually, so DigameXtra.com dodged a bullet there.

Politicians from Poland, Germany, and elsewhere in the European Union are exploring ways to sidestep contentious provisions of a new copyright rule, in effect June 7, that critics fear will undercut internet freedom. The EU directive is intended to get copyright policy in tune with the digital age. These EU Directives function as packages of instructions that national governments must write into their laws. In this case, member states have two years—until June 7, 2021—to update their statutes. Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Facebook Inc. may have to negotiate licenses for songs or video clips before publishing user uploads, under the new rules. Publishers, too, have new legal rights to help them retrieve payment from all types of online services.

We need to watch this AI-driven internet filter as it develops, especially in regards to censorship, news access and election coverage; it is a very powerful force susceptible to abuse.

Wanted, Cat Care: Live rent free in exchange for caring for a large number of cats.
Urgent, replacement cat/house sitter required, Puente don Manuel, live in my home rent free until early September in exchange for caring for around 20 cats, some owned and some just fed. Contribution for electricity and internet at 50 euros a month for both, possible use of a vehicle if required. The house would take care of itself but the cats can’t, don’t apply if you would miss aricon, a pool, tv, and luxury, this is a home not a hotel and yes it needs cleaning and if you can’t cope with the demands of many cats and the domestic implications, this is not for you. Contact me asap for more details but only if you can cope with cats and lots of them.

What Processor Chipset do you have? Hi Naythan, I have found that the quickest way to find out whether you have an Intel chip is to use
https://www.ccleaner.com/speccy/download and load the Free version.
Check the Summary and CPU ~ Chip make and version will be displayed (in detail).
Kind regards, Roger/La Vinuela; roger43@gmail.com
(CCleaner users: when you open the program your basic Processor/Chipset info is displayed at the top center of the screen. -Ed)

Internet & On-Line Services Disruption
Huge parts of the internet went offline on the 2nd of June, caused by issues at Google.
The outages led to massive disruptions among some of the most popular tools on the web, including YouTube, Snapchat, and even Google Drive. Yes, the cloud went down too (again).
Since Google technology powers a massive number of websites and services, including Uber, Vimeo, and Discord, there were disruptions all over the web. For many, the outage was a considerable inconvenience, affecting people specifically in the East Coast of America, but also in locations across Europe too.
The Google outage is now fully resolved according to official reports. Here’s hoping that similar issues don’t disrupt us again too soon in the future.

Intel Chip Patch on Older Computers, Tablets & Smartphones- Update June 4th 2019
It is now evident all the big tech players are supporting the current patch, despite it slowing affected Intel processors significantly. Microsoft, Apple and all major Linux distros have released their version of the patch. It also appears that more computers have this problem than was initially announced. It is NOT limited to Win 7 and earlier versions of Windows, as I previously quoted from early press releases. It very likely is present in most modern era Intel chips, even those being made today. It takes a long time to retool a processor making facility. Some tech experts go so far as to say, “On May 14, 2019, a new class of Intel CPU vulnerabilities was published by the microchip giant. Known as speculative execution side-channel vulnerabilities, they affect almost every Intel processor produced since 2011 – this includes a great number of servers, laptops, smartphones,…”
https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613598/cybersecurity-flaws-in-chips-are-taking-too-long-to-fix/
https://www.bisinfotech.com/data-information-security/intel-cpu-vulnerabilities-could-be-used-in-mds-attacks/
https://macdailynews.com/2019/05/14/new-secret-spilling-flaw-affects-almost-every-intel-chip-since-2011-apple-to-release-patches-today/
Thus there is no avoiding the patch. No better patch is on the horizon. Turn Updates back on if you followed my earlier advice to turn updates off. A slow, safe computer is better than a fast, infected computer.  The best we can do now is keep our computers well maintained and updated.
New Tech Purchases: I would advise anyone looking to buy a new computer, tablet or smartphone to only buy the newest models they can find if Intel Chips are used. Or buy a device with AMD or ARM processor chips. So far, AMD and ARM chips have not suffered from the chip flaws and remain safe. How to tell what chip a device has? Most laptops, not all, have a sticker with INTEL or AMD near the keyboard. Other devices will say INTEL or AMD or ARM on the carton. If in doubt, ask the salesman to show you the date-of-manufacture and Chip-maker’s stickers or check the model’s Official Manufacturer’s specs/details page on the internet. Many “on sale” and budget models, especially loss-leaders sold at the big discount shops, have sat in warehouses for a year or 2. The older it is, the more likely it will get the “slow down” chip flaw patch update as soon as you do the first updates after setup. The newer it is the less it will slow down after doing the chip-patch updates.

 What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Choir: A couple of years ago, we had a small choir running successfully in Torrox Costa. It was called Amicorum. For various reasons – we lost the venue, people moved away, there was no keyboard available, and I moved up to the Viñuela area – we were forced to stop. I have to drive to Torrox and Nerja in future and would like to resurrect this group if anyone is interested.
The choir was different from a couple of other notable ones in that participants needed to be able to read music and ideally have some experience of singing one voice per part. We sang all sorts of music, from 16th century English and Italian madrigals to modern Spanish song, via negro spirituals, Christmas carols, and rounds.
If you are interested in singing, or can provide a venue (we sang in a room in a private house), or a keyboard for rehearsal, please do contact me. Also let me know what voice you sing (SATB). Many thanks, Mike (Viñuela).

Recommendations

Casa Magel: My wife and I have just returned from a two night break at Casa Magel which is regularly advertised on this site. Well there is an old saying “If something sounds too good to be true, then it usually is”. Absolutely not the case here. For just €110 we had 2 nights at a lovely country cottage with a great pool and shady relaxation area with armchairs and settee.T he breakfast was superb and the dinner with a bottle of wine was restaurant standard. Add to this the beautiful countryside and lovely hosts and you just wonder how they do it for the price. We will certainly be returning again soon.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #74 – Windows 10 Tricks
-Cortana Personal Assistant is a huge energy hog and data collector. You can speed up your computer performance and increase your security by disabling it. Be sure to make a System Restore Point before changing these settings in case you make an error in the process and need to undo it. Info and instructions here:
https://www.windowschimp.com/disable-cortana/
-Copying web content into Word or Excel. If you are pasting text (not pics or graphics)  from a web page into Word or Excel, and find that it’s incorrectly formatted, try pasting it into Notepad first where the format will be converted to plain text automatically, and then copying it from there and pasting it into Word, Excel or other word processor program. I have to do this with every DigameXtra submission since the default formats in most major email providers do not display correctly in the WordPress Editor tool. That doubles the issue setup time for me, but looks so much better it’s worth the effort.
-Do you miss the old options that appeared when you right-clicked a Taskbar button? You can make them reappear by holding down the Ctrl + Shift keys as you right-click.
-If Windows Search is not accurately finding files or folders that you know are there, then it may be time to rebuild its index. You can do that by clicking Start, typing Index, and then clicking Indexing Options. It will open up the Control Panel entry, where you can go to Advanced > Rebuild and let it re-index, this will take a while, be patient and don’t use the computer while it is re-indexing. Once the index has been recreated, try searching again. https://www.windowschimp.com/windows-10-tricks

Tech Tips by DoctorLaptop

While you’re sleeping, your iPhone stays busy snooping on you- Washington Post: http://republicbroadcasting.org/news/while-youre-sleeping-your-iphone-stays-busy-snooping-on-you/

 

Secret Scores, Apple gives you a TRUST rating, just like you get in China – and it’s based on your phone call and email habits: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/7303020/apple-trust-score-phone-calls-emails/. The new system was quietly added as part of the new iOS 12 update for iPhones. In China, when your Trust (social credit) rating is low, you cannot get loans or insurance, buy airline tix, get credit cards, etc. Do you really believe Apple is not selling this info to financial firms in the rest of the world? So the next time you apply for health insurance be assured that company will scan your social media, and personal info provided by these data collectors, before determining your new rates. For example, if you’ve done a lot of Google searches for diabetes expect your rates to rise significantly, even if the searches were in regards to a friend, to Google it looks like YOU are the reason for the search. However, there is a way to benefit from these shenanigans… you can use this to your advantage. Next time you order an item from the internet, use an old, low budget computer. You will get a significantly better price than if you order using an expensive new €1500 MacBook. This is called “dynamic pricing” and it’s pretty much a given in today’s online marketplace. Basically, it means that retailers can charge you more for an item than they’re charging someone else, based on where you are, what you’ve been looking at online, and even what kind of device you’re using to shop.  https://www.csmonitor.com/Business/Saving-Money/2016/0405/How-retailers-use-dynamic-pricing-to-get-you-to-pay-more
