Many prohibitions: experts hold planned drone rules for unfit

Many prohibitions: experts hold planned drone rules for unfit

The legislative initiative of the Federal Government for air drones such as Multicopter threatens to miss their goal, emphasized experts in an appeal in the Bundestag on Monday. They call for the review of central elements. With the design, the flat-covered use of unnamonical flight access in Germany should actually "Lighter, faster and safer" will. According to the expert, the opposite would be the case.

The project see a variety of prohibition persons, criticized Dieter Moormann from the Institute for Flight System Dynamics at RWTH Aachen. These made it difficult to do meaningful tasks such as environmental surveillance in nature reserves through drones. "Absolutely justified flights should be banned at once", Struck Dario man from the tension service provider Fairfleet in the same score. Power plants, power lines, bridges in airport or solar panels on the roof were no longer allowed to be controlled, although the drone is exactly the right inspection tool.

Pilot of unmanned flight systems are "not here to lose the neighbor or to fly to bird nests", insured man. Although there are black sheep everywhere, but they were hardly prevented from extended prohibitions. He missed in the draft future visions such as parcel delivery or swarm control. Man fears the emigration of investment and know-how.

Youtube soon brings more breakers

Youtube soon brings more breakers

From 27. July will be substantially more youtube videos be interrupted by commercials. So far, a video had to be at least ten minutes to be able to get bias advertising also breaker advertising. Because the video thumbs-ending brings more money, many videos are just about ten minutes. This threshold now reduces Youtube to eight minutes.

The Krux: The change also concerns all already uploaded videos, even if the high-load interrupter advertising has deactivated. Who earns money with his YouTube channel and still no breaker advertising is welcome, must log in and turn off the interrupting advertising. For each video individually.

Adjust manually

Which videos are actually advertising interruptions and on which places sets an algorithm. YouTube explains that high-loading for your videos can be adjusted manually manually, on which places the advertising breaks come.

Neither does not exist in the 2019 company founded company, but Volta Trucks strives for its trucks to 2025 in 180.Save 000 tonnes of CO2.

At the moment the first prototype is built, he should be finished in the course of this year, promises Volta Trucks. First test drives Will Volta Trucks in the first quarter 2021.

Cross platform: capacitor 3 promises more performance for web native apps

Cross platform: capacitor 3 promises more performance for web native apps

With slimming apps and short start times, Ionics App Runtime Capacitor 3 promises one: more performance for web-native apps. For the newly presented version, the Ionic Developer Team has its focus on multiplatform applications and transfers its runtime environment to several places.

App Developer should not notice that in a lane smaller bundles. For this purpose, ionic has outsourced the plug-ins contained in the runtime, for example for access to native features such as push notifications or platform-specific file systems into its own repository. So where appropriate code is not needed, it is no longer included in the packed app. As a side effect, Capacitor 3 creates apps under IOS and Android also more comprehensible than in the process versions only to ask user permissions, for example, for access to the camera when these functions are implemented at all.

Depending on the platform, plug-in is also trained by Lazy Loading. Capacitor automatically elects the appropriate code: for Electron apps only charged electron plug-ins and not for the iOS or Android. In addition to a smaller file bout of the apps, Ionic wants to make sure that platform-specific code is not accidentally executed on a wrong platform.

Gaia-x 4 ki: european data cloud is intended to drive automated driving

One focus of the cloud project Gaia-X initiated by Germany and France is on the area of mobility. A consortium from business and research with 16 partners has now under the "Gaia-x 4 ki" Joined in to develop concrete services for the automotive industry in the European computer cloud using artificial intelligence (KI).

Digital traffic infrastructure

The scientific management of Gaia-X 4 Ki has taken the German Center for Aerospace (DLR). In addition, among other things, the Fraunhofer company, the University of Offenburg, the Leibniz University Hannover and the Th Ingolstadt are also on board.

Ios 14: private wi-fi addresses can cause problems

An innovation from iOS 14 can lead to WLAN problems: The operating system automatically directs its own, random MAC address in networks for each connected Wi-Fi (or each SSID) in networks that use MAC addresses based on functions can thereby connect it come.

Changing MAC address ensures problems in company networks

This concerns – depending on the configuration – domestic WLANs, however, in particular, in large networks of companies or educational institutions, it is possible for problems, such as the network specialist Cisco warns: The Network Management Tool Identity Services Engine does not work properly and the affected advances A disruption of the compound – for example with iPhones, which the employee himself represents (BYOD) or even in interaction with Mobile Device Management (MDM).

As particularly problematic, in this context, it proves that when upgrading to iOS 14 also all the SSIDs already known to the device already known "Private WLAN address" be assigned. In it IOS 14 and iPados 14 of Android 10 differ, as Cisco notes. Even Google’s smartphone operating system now relies on random Mac addresses, but only for new Wi-Fi connections. The configuration already stored SSIDs is not changed by the operating system update.

Western digital my book live: disconnect your hard drives from the internet

If you use Hard Drives from Western Digital Series My Book Live or My Book Live Duo, you should disconnect it as soon as possible from the Internet. The network HDDs have an Ethernet connection to provide cloud functions. However, unknowns use the interface to reset the hard drives to the delivery state.

All data is lost so first. To what extent this can be saved, for example through the cloning of HDDs, is unclear. In the design surface, foreign passwords are also set up.

Data is therefore no longer safe as long as the HDDs are accessible from the outside. The problems appear to occur since the 24. June 2021 on how affected partners report in the forum of Western Digital.
