WhatsApp reaches 2 billion active users. An absolute record

9e79bbcf-fe9e-4134-bd9a-eeac2e07f265

WhatsApp continues to grind record numbers and to say it is the platform itself that announces the record of 2 billion active users. Incredible numbers that clearly make the app among the most used in the world and in terms of messaging certainly the most used. The numbers probably highlight the improvement work that the developers are carrying out in the code by introducing week after week novelties capable of making the application more user friendly. An attention that clearly pleases users who decide to reward the app by using it more than others both in general and in this field.

 

Dark mode coming soon

After repeated experimental versions, the new Dark Theme publicly arrived on WhatsApp a few weeks ago. In this case the users who can use it daily are only those with the Beta version by installing an APK. How does it work? Basically, users can activate the new mode directly from the settings of the application itself in the “Theme” section. Here three distinct options will appear: Light, Dark and Energy Saving, which will guarantee energy savings by proposing a color with gray tones rather than completely black.

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X: the first 64-core desktop CPU

ryzen
It is the first processor for desktop systems with 64 cores inside and represents the fastest currently available on the market. However, it requires applications that are able to take advantage of the high number of cores present to give the best. It is therefore not for everyone, starting from the price: 3,999 dollars!

 

The Ryzen Threadripper family of processors debuted on the market with the first versions in the summer of 2017, representing a radical novelty compared to what AMD previously offered. For the first time, in fact, the American company has been able to offer a product intended specifically for the field of HEDT systems, High-End Desktop, putting itself in direct contrast with the range of Intel solutions of the Core-X series.

 

In the comparison between the two families of Intel and AMD HEDT CPUs, some differences immediately became clear: AMD aimed to offer a higher number of cores, clearly evident with the transition to the number of 32 in the debut of the second generation Ryzen Threadripper CPUs , while Intel has benefited from higher clock rates and superior single-core efficiency. The particular architecture of the first two generations of Ryzen Threadripper processor, borrowed directly from the EPYC proposals for datacenters, also represented a limit with those applications highly dependent on the latency of access to system memory.

 

However, everything has changed with the debut of the third generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors, based on Zen 2 architecture and built with 7 nanometer production technology, which took place last November. AMD presented two models, equipped with 24 and 32 core architecture respectively, anticipating the debut of a third version capable of offering 64 internal cores.

The Best Videoplayer for PC

01 VLC [win+linux+mac]

vlcplayer

It is by far the best video player for windows. For windows it is almost a necessity to have it installed. In addition to recognizing noisy files and having advanced video controls, it allows you to record video clips with just two clicks: by clicking on rec at the beginning and end of the instant you wish.

02 MPC HC

mpc-hc player

It is the best alternative to VLC. It is very light, has many functions and recognizes many video formats. It is included in the codec installation package. It is obviously present only for windows.

04 SMS PLAYER [win+linux+mac]

smsplayerBest

It is the best alternative to VLC after MPC. It can also be installed on MAC and LINUX. I don’t really like graphics, but it has many features and controls for the video.

03 MPV [win+linux+mac]

mpvplayer

It supports a large number of video formats. It does not require installation and is very light even due to a defect: it does not have a real graphic interface but a small bar is displayed when the mouse cursor moves.

After decades .. it still remains a good video player integrated into the windows

Fast charging, improved autonomy: the next Samsung smartphones will use graphene batteries

71ODlmryhbL._SL1500_
According to the blogger Evan Blass, Samsung would be ready to launch graphene batteries. Blass writes that the Korean giant is close to completing the technology of new batteries. Samsung could use them in new smartphones by 2020, at most in 2021. According to Techradar, it could be the Galaxy Note 11 or the Galaxy S12, or a new model of the A line.

The new batteries could be recharged in just over half an hour and at the same time could guarantee a higher capacity, for a much longer duration than the current situation. At the same time, production costs would be lower. In short, in just over two years, Samsung would be able to overcome the problems that plague users and producers. Even more evident in this last period, given that in the face of increasingly powerful devices they still cannot guarantee the necessary duration.
