Major Updates For WhatsApp , Facebook and Instagram.Details Inside

If you are a frequent user of social media you are most definitely on one or all of the mentioned social media platforms. Facebook Inc, the mother company of Instagram and WhatsApp is working hard to ensure its users get the best experience from their platforms by providing some updates that will take effect sometime later. Facebook has now scrapped off the message that prompted its users when they joined your list. Facebook will now use artificial intelligence to see which users hate the alerts.

Samsung Builds The Largest Smartphone Factory In India

Samsung has made a major move this year by finally opening the largest smartphone factory in Noida, India. This is especially a very lucrative deal for India since the country has been looking to attract more investors. This initiative has been a major concern for the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi who has been working effortlessly to lure investors to India.

In attendance of the big unveiling was also the President of South Korea President Moon Jae-in. The new plant is supposed to see the doubling of Samsung’s Noida facility’s capacity from 68 million units annually to an estimated 120 million units in a year. The expansion has been in stages with the final touches expected to end in 2020. President Moon Jae-in plans to tap into the 425 million smartphone users in India and a population of 1.3 billion people.

According to International Data Corporation, India’s market grew by 14 per cent in 2017 with an astounding total shipment of 124 Million units that year alone. This is a great opportunity for other smartphone manufacturers like Apple, VIVO, Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi Corp planning to build three factories in India to meet this ever-growing demand for mobile phones in India. This will increase their market shares over the coming years as it is cheaper to manufacture in India than to import electronic goods in India. This is due to high taxes by the Indian government.

 On the bright side, the many plants will help to improve the lives of the Indian people by providing job opportunities and the myriad of other capabilities that smartphones have gained over the past few years especially in the mobile banking industry. India is on the verge of becoming a global mobile phone export hub. Earlier this year Xiaomi ousted Samsung from the leading smartphone provider in India since the Xiaomi models are cheaper compared to the high-end devices manufactured by Apple and Samsung. The new Noida Plant is focused on providing from low-end mobile handsets to their latest high-end flagship devices since most Indians favor low-end smartphones.

What is Google's ARCore? Details Inside: How Google Measure App Is Using ArCore


Google's AR core is a platform that is used by Android applications' developers to create wonderful interactive augmented reality experiences captured by the mobile phone's camera in real-time. The AR core allows your mobile device to sense its immediate environment and interact with the information found in that environment. This is made possible through the various Application Programming Interfaces used to develop the groundbreaking app.
Google's Measure App uses the AR core to sense objects in its environment and interact with the objects via the phone camera. The app allows the user to take measurements without the use of a physical tape measure. It most definitely will not replace your tape measure but it is convenient for measuring surface distances.
The implementation of this technology is largely dependent on motion tracking technology used by mobile phones to understand their positions in an environment. Environmental understanding is used by the Android operating system to allow the mobile device to understand the objects in its environment just by detecting the sizes and locations of surfaces either vertical, horizontal or angled and lastly, it uses the mobile phones ability to sense appropriate lighting for an environment.
AR Core works by tracking the position of the device in real time as it moves from one locality to another. This helps the phone to understand its environment better.
Google's ARCore is designed to run on Android phones running on Android(Nougat) N and later.
AR stands for Augmented Reality for those wondering what AR stands for and is similar to Apple's ARKIT.
The augmented reality field has various applications in the real world. Archaeologists are currently using Augmented reality to rebuild ancient ruins and to study the ancient civilization lifestyles.AR is also being used by Architects to visualize buildings before they are actually built.The same can be done for mega structures and bridges.It can also give potential clients a taste of how their house will look like after it is completed.

Mobile Technology in Africa

 Mobile Technology is a term usually used to refer to portable devices like mobile phones. It is usually a device that can perform, more than one function like internet access, GPS and so on. Mobile Technology uses Code Division Multiple Access which uses many transmitters to send data on a single channel. The rapid evolution of mobile technology has been considered as the future of computing since the dominance of wireless portable devices has started becoming popular worldwide with major companies making millions in dollars manufacturing mobile phone devices.
With the introduction of the Android operating system by Google, the mobile platform has given jobs to millions of Android application developers worldwide.

With the increase of players in the mobile market the competition for the piece of the pie has been tough over the years with mostly Apple iPhone and Android dominating the market.
The mobile sector has also given birth to a new concept called Big Data. It that has been the buzz over the internet for a few years now with concentration increasing exponentially over the few couple of years with major companies like Google's Android being some of the major beneficiaries of the data they mine off the consumers of their myriad of products on the internet.

That's probably why the created their browsers Google Chrome. That way they get more reliable data to enable the company to deliver a more personalized experience for their users. Of course, this is only possible at the price of personal privacy.
Mobile phones have enabled people to connect faster through social media, video calls, short messages, audio messages. They also provide news and mobile phone games available free for download in mobile app stores like Google's Play Store and Windows Store for Windows Tablets or Surface Devices.

In Kenya, the mobile phone industry keeps growing with mobile phone subscribers increasing annually mostly for the main telecommunications company Safaricom Kenya. People use mobile phones to send money from one person to another using their mobile phones. This innovation is only around a decade old and has pushed Safaricom Limited to the topmost earning companies in Africa and East Africa.
The face of mobile Technology is rapidly changing and it is here to dominate.

Intel Makes Changes To How Antivirus Programs Scan Your Machine.Improved Performance:Details

If you are a frequent user of a computer you are moat likely to be familiar with the term computer Antivirus Software.These are computer programs that are used to detect, prevent and remove harmful software from your computer.examples of antivirus software are Avast Antivirus Software and Kerpsersky Computer security.These modern antivirus programs protects the users computer from a variety of threats such as malicious browser helper objects,rootkits, back-doors,Trojan horses, worms, adware among other threats.

These anti malicious software running on a computer affects the performance of a computer. This is because the antivirus software requires CPU resources to scan the computer and this adversely affects performance of the computer hence slowing it down.
The company Intel is finally providing a solution to this problem by allowing virus scanners to use Integrated Graphics chip sets to scan for threats.This will allow a machine to save battery life and improve its performance.This is set to reduce CPU utilization from 20 Percent to 2 Percent.

Intel is currently working with Microsoft to implement this change with Microsoft already using the technology in Windows Defender Advanced Protection in April 2018.
With these new changes we are finally optimistic of our computers being secure and performing optimally.

The tech giant Google is planning to ban cryptocurrecny related adverts from its platform. Google is updating its financial services ads related content on their platforms. The crackdown also applies to Wallets, Initial Coin Offerings and ads on trading advice.Google is planning to roll out this update in June 2018 following Facebook's ban that was also announced early this year. The two companies feel that they have seen too many ads related to cryptocurrencies that may cause consumer harm.
Even though cryptocurrency ,market has generated a lot  of wealth for many people this field still remains vastly uncontrolled. This is a major concern as it may lead to very high profile scams.This news came as Google released its annual trust and safety ads report.
Google has come to this conclusion after taking down more than 3.2 billion ads that violated their policies.
It is understandable why google may want to make the ads space safer for its users as Google's parent company Alphabet gets 84% of its earnings from advertising.

Photo Courtesy Standard Digital: Rex Tillerson in Kenya

The U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been ousted by the U.S President Donald Trump. The President plans on replacing Tillerson with the CIA Director Mike Pompeo.Trump asked him to step aside. This cut short his visit to Kenya as he had to return to Washington DC immediately to address more "pressing matters". The tension between the president and his top diplomat has been growing for the past few months and reached breaking point last week when he finally asked Tillerson to step aside amid on going delicate negotiations  with North Korea. This signifies a major change to the President's national security team at such a crucial time.

The reason for his firing still remains unclear. According to the spokesperson for the Secretary of state Rex Tillerson had no idea why he was fired.
The Director of the Criminal Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo will replace Rex Tillerson while the current deputy Director of the CIA ,Gina Haspel will succeed Mike Pompeo as Director of the CIA making her the first female to ever head the CIA since it was formed.
However the Trump nominees will still have to go through the Senate for confirmation.Tillerson felt that he was left out of the loop when President Trump aggreed to meet North Korea Leader .He had insisted on a diplomatic approach on the nuclear stand off between the U.S and North Korea.Pompeo, who had developed a good rapport with the President of the US as the Director of the CIA has long been rumoured as Tillerson's replacement. Trump's latest move confirms this rumour.Tillersons removal had been wildly anticipated and even had a nickname "Rexit".This rumor had been made even stronger in November 2017 when NBC news reported that Tillerson had called Trump a "moron".

10 Things to do to Make your man beg for a sleepover

So girls let us make this very straight : never let any man sleepover at your place. you are at no one point allowed to serve food,  wash dishes and give a bombass sex in one place.  Let it all be that when you break up, the only loss you encounter is your vajayjay's elasticity.  Rule number two,  don't have sex with  a man more than a night.  When you sleep and wake up,  it's your time to get moving.  Don't wife yourself to a man who doesn't have a ring. 
There is no life without a woman.  They need us. It's fine,  they don't want commitment, let him go buy a baby in the hospital.  The following are top ten things you should do in a sleepover.

1. Arrive late
Simply because he invited you over,  you don't have to arrive there at in the morning. This is for the safety of your nails and your restrictions from doing wifely duties on a girlfriend contaract. Think of it, the earlier you get there the more you face the temptation of giving him just a hand job and a hand in his dirty dishes because you want to prove how feminine you are.  The less time you spend with him, the better.

2. Carry a purse, small enough to fit an extra thong
Your dowry has not yet been paid.  So no big baskets. You want to have an extra of everything, shoes,  clothes, hats, coat. It's exhausting.  You are practically moving into his house even if it's fwd-arrangement. The next time he will want to come to your place just to get rid of you when he wants to. Let him buy that new toothbrush for you, and make sure you carry it back home.  Don't let another woman use it to lie her baby hair.
3.  Eat wash, your face and go to 'sleep'
Enough with long stories.  Let him talk. Let him do his things.  Take your time as if you are studying him,  let him play his playlist, his TV station.  If he bore you too much,  give him a sloppy head.  And it's true what they say,  the noisier the head,  the faster he gonna shoot.  If not,  you might be really demotivated with a painful neck. After your prayer partnership,  go to sleep.  Cuddles is for your teddy bear.
4. Remove your clothes,  arrange and keep them neatly and go naked in bed
He knows you need a T-shirt.  If he won't give you,  sleep with a curve on your back. Round two should not come anything earlier than midnight. They start sleeping at 2am, this is the time to start your coup.  Be dirty and be nasty.  Touch him,  caress him,  massage his big belly. Make it awkward for him that you want to fuck him.  Then do it.  Play with that joystick as if you are possessed by a black stallion.  Do it how you want it,  feel it,  fill it in you,  moan,  groan, at least once in a while call his name.  Nothing more. Don't ask silly questions like "ni tamu?" and don't even start your confessions such as "nakupenda". Do it like its business,  touch yourself once in a while.  Do it so sexily that he will want to be your hands.  Don't get off until you come.  Wake up,  go to the bathroom,  wash your cat with some cold water and go back to bed. 
5. Good morning head
Let the first handshake he has is from his head. Massage the little guy in agony,  like you will dearly miss him.  After that say goodbye.  6.30 should find you saying your goodbyes. No morning sex. He had enough of it at night.  You are no longer horny and you also need to go back to your place. You just came to sleep and now that's off the hook, go home.
6. Don't ask for transport
Don't spend where it's not needed.  Don't travel to rongai from Kahawa to go eat chapati madondo . The cost of coming and going back home to your place should be equal to the cost of food you eat at his place.  If it's a deficit of 100 Bob,  ask 100bob for fare. If you had chicken barbeque and more,  pay your own fare. 
7.Dont text
Yes don't get into the matatu and start texting.  "That was the best night,  oh sex"  saying this doesn't add an A to your sex game.  If it was bad,  that's it. If it was good,  no need for talking about it.  Pillowtalk is only for Zayn Malik,  and he ain't a Kenyan . Get home,  text him you are home,  and get busy.  Don't talk about the sex,  in fact act like it never happened.
8. Don't plan for another sleepover for at least 5 days
self explanatory.  Stop wishing to go back and take mirror selfie in him house.  Be humble, accept what you have and stay at your place.  A normal man takes around two weeks to be totally horny again,  so use your mathematics. The best man to fuck is a horny Man. He will work as if he is fighting with his juices out of his body and at that time they will think of nothing better.  Win win for both of you.
9. Don't leave anything
Yes.  No ' I forgot excuse'. Take everything of yours and leave no woman trace of you. You will be surprised how much a man wants someone who doesn't want him. It their animal instinct.  You just have to reverse it on them. Don't leave your toothbrush. Nor your panty under the bed,  or your hairclip next to him TV or couch.  Carry everything with you. 
10. Alternate
Don't alternate men.  Alternate the things you do. Today is a sleepover,  next time is a rave,  then a movie.  A wife's duty is to stay at his home and cook his food,  wash his clothes,  give him unlimited sex.  Yours is to do girls and boys things together.  Watch football,  go window shopping, eat out. Let him not scare you that you are not a wife material.  Of course you wear clean clothes,  you really fat and eating healthy, and you have younger siblings.  That's proof enough.
