At first glance, Xiaomi revealed just one more flashlight. But the Xiaomi 3 in 1 Multi-Function Flashlight is, as its name implies, capable of serving at least three purposes. And it only costs 15 euros

Launched on the Youpin crowdfunding platform, it is a flashlight, but it can also function as a desk or wall lamp or even as a powerbank to charge your smartphone.

This is clearly a smart product thanks to its sensors. It has sensors that allow it to adapt to ambient light, and is also capable of detecting human presence.

This means that it is capable of turning on if someone approaches, and turning off if anyone walks away. The sensor in question has a capture field of 120, and detects presence up to 3 meters away.

Having a battery of 2600 mAh, allows it to be used for other purposes. It can be a wall lamp, or even a desk lamp if you wish.

As we see in the pictures, it can also act as a power bank to charge your devices. However, it will be in emergency situations, since the 2600 mAh don’t make for great adventures.

The multifunction flashlight has just entered the platform Youpin (in Chinese) crowdfunding priced at 119 Yuan – about 15 euros. Soon we should see it coming to the usual online stores.

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.

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.
