UK Prime Minister gives Huawei vote of confidence




At a time when the vast majority of European countries are investigating possible threats posed by the use of Huawei products, controversial UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given Huawei an “unofficial” vote of confidence.

During his presence on the popular ITV This Morning show, Boris Johnson was “caught” taking a selfie with the presenters using a Huawei P20. According to an official representative, the smartphone does not belong to the Prime Minister, but everything indicates otherwise.

National security concerns are growing in the United Kingdom

Obviously, this would be one of the smartphones that nobody expected to see the Prime Minister use, especially at a time when investigations are being conducted on Huawei.

Boris Johnson himself had already mentioned your opinion regarding a possible permission for Huawei to be primarily responsible for the implementation of 5G networks in the UK.

The Prime Minister has stated that he does not want the country to be unnecessarily aggressive towards possible investments from abroad. He also stated that, on the other hand, they should not neglect national security.

Therefore, it seems that your choice of a Huawei smartphone as your daily driver gives the manufacturer a big vote of confidence. However, it is important to note that Boris Johnson is quite controversial in the UK and has been involved in numerous bad decisions over the years.

In addition to his involvement in the development of 5G networks in the UK, there are also considering whether they will allow other Huawei products to be imported. Most likely, the decision will be revealed after the next elections.


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.
