Google Chrome hits 2 Billion Active Installs

Published

Google Chrome hits 2 Billion Active Installs 1
Google announced a new milestone for its Chrome browser today: 

2 Billion Active Installs

This statistic includes both desktop and mobile installations since its September 2008 release. This news was made public onstage at the Chrome Dev Summit conference by Chrome Engineering VP Darin Fisher. Of course, this stat differs from active use — just because you have installed Chrome doesn’t mean it’s your primary daily browser. That’s especially true of mobile, where a company like Apple makes it easer to use its built-in Safari browser even after you’ve defaulted to mobile Chrome.

Still, 2 billion installs is a  first huge milestone for a Google product. The company announced last year during its I/O developer conference that it has more than 1 billion Android users . And last April, Chrome passed the 1 billion active user mark on mobile. That means, between its active install pass and growing mobile presence, Chrome could be the first Google product to hit the 2 billion user mark. Though it is of course contending with Android. As of last September, Google’s mobile operating system was installed on 1.4 billion active smartphones  around the world. So for Google, it looks like a never-ending race with itself.

These 10 Stunning Photo Concepts Will Give You A Lot To Think About 3

1. DRUGS BETRAYAL
I was in pain and in search for Joy I found more pain, and this time it was unbearable cause I was left all alone and broken.. Had no alternatives so I turned to some ‘Pills and Portions’ which had promised to be a friend. In my lonely world, I embraced my only source of friendship so tight that I didn’t notice I was about to get betrayed.. Lost in the addictive relationship of drugs, I wondered how come I still felt so empty when I had found a friend already..

        Days of trauma and addiction ran into weeks which skipped into years, and now here I am in Chains cause I never knew I had found a friend in bondage, I never knew the So-called Pills and Portions came along with Tricks and plots to make me more miserable than I ever was…. Now, I realized that my search for Joy had led me into My END.. Oh! I made my search wrongly, spent years searching with my eyes cast with a selfish and deceitful desire that I couldn’t recognize the enemy in disguise: DRUGS..

       THE QUEST FOR PLEASURE HAS LED MANY DESTINIES TO THE QUIET GRAVE.. PLEASE, SHUN DRUG ABUSE, #SHUN #ONETAP. DON’T LET WRONG INFLUENCE TAMPER WITH YOUR CHOICE AND DESIRE.. TAKE A BOLD STAND TODAY AND JOIN ME #SAYNOTODRUGS..   Please, Share This message and Save Someone, God bless you.. 

2. The fight against drug abuse would never end until you realize the world awaits you to speak..  In a time like this when we’ve got no voice to listen to cause they all got cracked with smokes, why not be the voice that would make the change… I know maybe you’re not reading this clearly cause you’ve not really recovered from the #ONETAP you took few hours ago, but listen YOU STILL HAVE A CHANCE TO CAUSE CHANGE, let’s save a drowning generation, let’s save a friend today.. The NO TO DRUG ABUSE BEGINS WITH YOU.. LET’S teach our youths to cultivate weed instead of digesting them in ignorance..

3.  You may have taught about giving it a try, you think it feels so cool, just #ONETAP. You wish to get used to the feeling so you’ll join the #sciencestudent meanwhile you could be a #changeagent. Listen, it never feels good to be in bondage. Great destinies and dreams have been cut shut all because of a trial. In search of the groove you may end up losing yourself to the cold chains of addiction. 
       Hey, you should spell a big NO to that deceitful disaster, say a big #no to the wrong message from the Society and friends, say NO to 1st trial, cause it brings more harm. Say NO to drugs today, and live up your dreams #Tomorrow. Live right, cause your life is an epistle to many. Take a #stand today and shun
4.       In the most corrupt of systems at least one saint can always be found, but in a little time he may drown or get lost in the system if overlooked.. Even a blind man today can tell that Drug abuse has taken a large portion of the Society and trend. But, CAN THIS EVER BE CHANGED?..  This Image shows the possibility of STANDING OUT even when it seems impossible.. From the past decades we had men like Lanre Oluseye, Timi Dakolo, Samuel Dixon who went through the ghetto rivers but never got carried away with the waves of influence and trends.. 
           
        Can such men be raised again from this decade, When our youths get few or no mentors to look up to, When even law  students are proudly branded as #SCIENCESTUDENTS just to fit in, When pharmacists are paid to falsely prescribe Codeine and narcotics, When religious and political leaders no longer preach truth, protecting their ego and selfish interests.. THE CALL TO SHUN #ONETAP WOULD BE MERE NOISE IF WE HAVE NO NO IDOLS THESE YOUTHS CAN LOOK UP TO.. Let’s shift our focus more to the FEW DROPS yet to be moved by the wave…
           
         Every river was started by a drop that made waves and then ripples.. Join us share this message, you could be a mentor to a few.. Please SHUN #ONETAP AND BE THE CHANGE YOU DESIRE..

6.       Have you been to prison yards before and find out how those inmates live life getting used to bondage and fear. being bound is way more than the Chains you see.. 
    
       17 years old David has a story that makes my eyes bleed with tears. I saw him silently crying at a corner where he hid himself, felt so burdened I made an approach. As I went closer I perceived a hard smell of Indian hemp that made me choke, I was so amazed how he managed to smoke for rolls which were lined on the floor and an extra in his hand which went off as tears and sweat soaked his hands .. I managed to take him out and spend some time with him.. I got really sober when he said in tears that for some months now he could hardly breath and he had withdrawn from school as a result.
        Young David had promised himself never to do drugs again since he silently knows the main cause of his health and academic tragedy but always falls back into burning rolls and this time in doubled dose.. He said his fear had always been accepting drugs as his addiction and weakness but Sadly it occurs to him that he is severely addicted and has slaved himself to the tyranny of this deceitful desire..  
  Tears soaked my eyes as he struggled with cough and said he had lost all hope.. But There’s always a key to every lock, and my proffered solution to every young one out there is to FEAR #ONETAP, SHUN IT AND FLEE FROM IT, cause it fit no get ending.. I ensured David that I’ll hide his identity cause he was scared his mum could see this post.. If only we knew what our young ones go through.. .. PLEASE JOIN US SHARE THIS MESSAGE, IT COULD BE NEEDFUL TO SOMEONE CLOSE.. MAYBE YOUR CHILD, MAYBE YOUR HEIR…  #SAYNOTODRUGS..
       Young Joe, grew up as the only kid from a poor family in the diobu ghetto.. As little as he was he had seen so much than I have even heard.. 😢😢.. His parents were never home, so he was left in the care of his cousin who was a core drug maniac and a severe addict for years.. Lil, Joe started doing drugs at a tender age not cause he was destined to but as a result of the INFLUENCE, BULLY and PRESSURE he faced from his pervert cousin at the absence of his parents.. 
        And now days had run into weeks, into months, into years and now the little innocent and smart Joe that was loved had now become the deadly and notorious Joe that is WANTED by the So-called Police who themselves act Nonchalant and Chaotic as a result of this DRUG ABUSE that is eating up our society, our youths and even our fathers… 
         Listen, This case is not peculiar to little Joe alone, but your child and maybe your only child may be going through this and could end up in the COLD chains of ADDICTION at your IGNORANCE.
  THERE IS A CLARION CALL FOR US TO FIGHT THIS ENEMY IN DISGUISE.. TAKE A #STAND TODAY AND SAY A FIRM ‘NO’ TO DRUG ABUSE.. SHARE THIS MESSAGE TODAY AND SAVE A CHILD
8.     All we say is “SHUN DRUG ABUSE, DON’T GIVE IT A TRY. DON’T GIVE IT A CHANCE”.. Be a mentor to younger ones, don’t expose them to this life threatening practice..  And Please keep drugs away from the reach of children..  Please, take a #stand today and say a Bold No to DRUG.. SHARE THIS MESSAGE AND REACH OUT TO SOMEONE IN NEED.. 
9.    It’s no longer a cliché that we are fully shaped by our environment.. Children mostly retains every information seen than told..  It’s sad that we live in a society were the only thing flashed to us is several ways of practicing Drug abuse and other vices.. But, shall we sit and watch this one’s get lost to the ill influence of our society?.. 
       Why not be an example young ones can learn from?.. Why not be a source of positive inspiration to the youths?.. It’s time we take a #stand and #Show them the way..  #SHUN #DRUGS #ABUSE TODAY, AND SPREAD THIS MESSAGE TO A YOUTH AND TO YOURSELVES, CAUSE #CHANGE STARTS WITH #ME..

Another Video Beats GanGam Style To Become The Most Watched YouTube Video In The World

Another Video Beats GanGam Style To Become The Most Watched YouTube Video In The World 16

Gangnam Style has dominated the YouTube video leaderboards for the last five years as the most viewed video but now it’s finally out. The most viewed video is now Wiz Khalifa’s See You Again, featuring Charlie Puth written as a tribute to late Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker.

See you again is currently at 2,895,373,709 views, while Gangnam Style now has about 2.7 Billion Views.

However, it’s 2017 so the record might not last as long as five years. A few more recent music videos have already blown through the two billion view count, and Luis Fonsi’s Despacito already has more than 2,485,501,000 views in the few months since it was released.

So it’s certainly going to take over the charts in coming months if another video doesn’t blow up through the charts.

I must reiterate that getting 2 Billion views in 2012 was a greater achievement than getting it in 2017.

Carter Wilkerson Breaks Record To Have The Most Retweeted Tweet ( A Whooping 3.6million+ RT's) Because Of Chicken

Published

on

It all started with a simple Tweet.

Carter Wilkerson Breaks Record To Have The Most Retweeted Tweet ( A Whooping 3.6million+ RT's) Because Of Chicken 27

He’s surpassed the Ellen Show’s 3.4million RT’s and the hilarious part of the whole thing is that the tweet went viral because he asked for free chicken nuggets.

Wendy’s the fast food restaurant replied saying He should get 18 million retweets to get the Nuggets.

When he sent the tweet on April 5, he thought it might be a fun joke for his friends. He had never gotten up to 10 retweets on a single tweet before, he said, so topping that would be kind of cool.

There’s no way Wendy’s would actually give him free chicken nuggets, he thought.

According to NY Times, when the tweet passed just over 3.43 million retweets, Wendy’s said it would indeed give him free chicken nuggets for a year, even though he remained far from the 18 million retweets the restaurant’s cheeky Twitter  account had originally said he would need for the free nuggets. The company also said it would donate $100,000 in his name to the Dave Thomas Foundation For Adoption.

“You’ve more than earned our respect … and the nuggets,” Kurt Kane, chief concept and marketing officer for The Wendy’s Company, said in a statement.

In an interview on Monday, when he was 3,600 retweets behind Ms. DeGeneres, Mr. Wilkerson described a world turned upside down as he prepared for AP tests, considered college applications and took his girlfriend to the prom. In his school’s hallways and at the mall, he heard over and over: “Hey, it’s Nugget Kid!”

“I think they’re all pretty jealous,” he said of his classmates. “Who doesn’t want to be the Nugget Kid?”

The trappings of notoriety aside, he quickly realized that “when you gain internet fame, it’s important to use it for good,” he said.

Seven People Hold The Keys To The Internet – See Why

Published

on

It may sound like a scene from a Hollywood movie but it’s true. Seven people from all over the world hold the keys to worldwide internet security. Here’s how the keys work –

Seven People Hold The Keys To The Internet - See Why 28

Each of the keys access a safety deposit box, which in turn holds a smartcard, which combines with every other smartcard to generate a master key. That master key controls one of the internet’s central security measures known as the domain-name system, or DNS. DNS is what makes it possible for you to enter a web address, like http://www.google.com, instead of typing in the IP address, such as http://74.125.24.72.

The keyholders make sure that each web address is authentic. If they don’t exist, millions of fake web addresses could send people to fake and dangerous sites. The master key can reconstruct the entire system if there’s a disaster.

The question remains though -How does a person gain this much power? Just an online application.

Seven People Hold The Keys To The Internet - See Why 29

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann), the private US company that runs the system, only received 40 applications in their initial job posting for 21 positions. The criteria for choosing each keyholder was for their experience all have very long careers in internet security and also for their location, since there are limits on the number of keyholders any one country can have.

Here’s the part that you’ll definitely love if you’re a techie:

Anytime the group has a meeting they undergo extreme security measures: they have to walk through two doors require a smart card, a pin code, and a hand scan in various sequences, then a third door that uses an iris scanner.

There’s no limit to how long one keyholder can serve, and in the time the group has existed, only one has resigned.

Facebook Changes Web Chat Interface To Messenger UI

Published

on

Facebook just revamped it’s old chat user interface and replaced it with the Messenger UI. A number of users have requested to go back to the old “iconic” user interface but I’m not sure if Facebook is going to give us the flip switch.

Facebook Changes Web Chat Interface To Messenger UI 31

Basically, the first design change you’ll notice if you have access to the new interface is the Messenger icon where the old speech box icon for messaging used to be on Facebook. Click on it, and you’ll be given the option to view all your messages in Messenger — this takes you to the new-look inbox. There you’ll find all your chats organized neatly below the search bar on the left side-bar, with the most recent selected.

On the right side-bar are a number of new customization options, including the ability to change the conversation’s color, edit nicknames, change the emojis that can be used, and to mute notifications, and search within the chat thread. It’s not exactly revolutionary, but it does add a playful element to the conversation. The same side-bar also lets you easily access the recipient’s Facebook profile, and your shared photos. Alongside the new options, you’ll have the ability to make voice and video calls, and access all the settings that were available in the past.
