WhatsApp And Facebook Merger – Here’s What Mark Zuckerberg Said About It 1

A few days ago I wrote a post about the plan Whatsapp and Facebook merger which means they want to merge their 3 Major Platforms – Messenger, Instagram and of course Whatsapp.

As soon as this news hit the web, a whole lot of rumours have been going around the internet, and most of it had to do with privacy.

If you remember clearly sometime in 2018, Facebook was faced with a major security breach which was related to the private data of users taken by Cambridge Analytica.

 

WhatsApp And Facebook Merger -Mark Zuckerberg Responds

WhatsApp And Facebook Merger – Here’s What Mark Zuckerberg Said About It 2

During a meeting with investors, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, explained the project that wants to create a cross-platform messaging system between Facebook, Instagram And Whatsapp.

At the moment, the project is still in its infancy and Facebook is still thinking about the various possible solutions, so it will be necessary to wait at least until 2020 before we get to see the first unified version of the messaging system.

According to Zuckerberg, the benefits include :  End-to-End encryption that will allow you to exchange messages with maximum security.

 

Also, it would help a user who uses the Marketplace on Facebook but has to use WhatsApp for the instant messaging part an easy unified way to do that without leaving any of the apps.

The idea is to create a system similar to Apple’s iMessage on SMS, with more features and the security given by end-to-end encryption.

Will Facebook Merge Whatsapp And Messenger?

If you are thinking about this right now – will facebook merge WhatsApp and Messenger?

Probably, yes but we would have to wait till 2020 to see what comes up but before then let me know if you think this is a good idea

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

attention!-bug-on-android-is-frustrating-users-using-pin-code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

You can now hear Samuel L. Jackson’s voice on your Amazon Echo

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
