Microsoft claims that Google Chrome is worse than Microsoft Edge

Feb 09, 2018 | Blog

A recent report backs up the company's claims about its browser offering better protection from phishing attacks. Microsoft is clamming that Microsoft’s Internet browser Edge is safer to use and better for battery life than Google Chrome. Chrome is far more popular than Edge, and Microsoft has long struggled to close the gap between these two browsers. Chrome had a 55.08 per cent share of the global market over the past 12 months, compared to less than three per cent for Edge, which was less popular than Safari, UC Browser, Firefox, Opera, and even Internet Explorer. Microsoft, however, argues that Edge outperforms Chrome in several key areas. It has released an ad that reveals the results of a battery test – conducted by Microsoft – in which 720p video was streamed on a loop on three identical laptops, using Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

Microsoft on its way to help blind people see with their AIs

Jan 09, 2018 | Blog

Microsoft released an app that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) in order to help blind people know what is going on in the world around them. “Seeing AI” as it’s called has several different channels that users can switch between. Based on those channels the app will provide a feedback of what is going on in front of the users. This app can read out loud texts written on the envelope that is in front of the user for example, it can provide audio guidance for scanning printing pages, scan grocery items via their barcode and even offer instructions on how to use them. Probably one of the most impressive thing about “Seeing AI” is that this app can recognize user friends, describe them and even indicate their emotional state. The latest update regarding this app is that now it can recognize different currencies such as British Pounds, US Dollars, Canadian Dollars and Euros.

And this is a risky business for you to try. Why you should ditch it But why would you want to use an outdated language that can only cause trouble and frustration? There are plenty of ...
