Adstoppi Blog | Huawei responds to Android ban

Published by:


Fresh off the sledgehammer blow of having its Android license revoked by Google in response to US government demands, Huawei has issued its first, limited response, which leaves more questions open than it answers. In a statement emailed to The Verge, Huawei underscores its contributions to the growth of Android globally — which most recently saw the company’s Android phone sales growing by double digits while every other leading smartphone vendor was shrinking or stagnant — and reassures current owners of Huawei and (subsidiary brand) Honor phones that they will continue to receive security updates and after-sales service. That promise also covers phones that are already shipped and in stock at stores globally, but no additional promises are made beyond that.

Google has already said that owners of Huawei phones will retain their access to the Play Store and continue being able to update their apps. The big thing that’s being written out of their future, however, are further Android OS updates from Google. To get those back, Huawei phone owners and fans will have to hope for a resolution in the US-China trade dispute, which has been the trigger for Huawei’s current blacklisting by the US government.

What is the Arecibo message

Published by:

Today's Google Doodle marks 44 years since the Arecibo message was beamed into outer space. The Arecibo message was a signal sent in 1974 from the Arecibo Observatory's radio telescope. Designed as a celebration of the facility's remodeling it communicated a message about humanity to a distant cluster of stars. Sent from Arecibo's megawatt transmitter and 305-meter antenna it was possible to concentrate a signal on a very small point in the sky. The power of the signal was the equivalent of a 20 trillion watt broadcast, according to SETI. The message was tiny by modern standards. It contained only 210 bytes made up of 1,679 binary digits. Essentially zeros and ones being beamed into space using frequency modulation. The transmission lasted less than three minutes in total. At the power...

It’s been a week of leaks for the upcoming Moto G7 line, and new details of an unannounced G7 Power variant emerged today through an FCC filing, as first spotted by XDA Developers. The Moto G7 Power joins the Moto G7, G7 Plus, and the recently leaked Moto G7 Play as one of the four Moto G devices that will likely launch next year. The Power’s standout feature will clearly be its battery: in the filing, Motorola discloses that it will have a 5,000mAh capacity. That could also explain why this year, the Moto G Play model will have a much smaller battery than usual, as the Power seems to be stepping in to fill that role. For comparison, our review of the Moto G6 Play found that its 4,000mAh battery was able to last around three days with moderate use. The Moto G7 Power may not actually...

A chilling Christmas greeting to the West has come from Vladimir Putin today in the form of a 2019 calendar from his burgeoning military machine. The Russian Defence Ministry view of next year begins with a snowy January view of a hulking Topol-M intercontinental mobile missile system captioned cheerfully: “Cargo delivery to anywhere in the world.” Another icy calendar greeting comes in September with a picture showing a uniformed female sniper taking aim to shoot. “Some women can blow your head away,” reads the caption. The calendar was unveiled in apparent deliberate timing as the West marks Christmas Day. For Russians 25 December is a normal working day and their main seasonal celebration comes at New Year, the moment when Grandfather Frost - as Santa is known here - brings...

What is Snowsquall

Published by:

A snowsquall (or snow squall) is a sudden moderately heavy snowfall with blowing snow and strong, gusty surface winds.[1] It is often referred to as a whiteout and is similar to a blizzard but is localized in time or in location and snow accumulations may or may not be significant. Types: Lake-effect snow When arctic air moves over large expanses of warmer open waters in winter, convective clouds develop which cause heavy snow showers due to a large amount of moisture available. This occurs southwest of extratropical cyclones, with the curved cyclonic wind flow bringing cold air across the relatively warm Great Lakes which then leads to narrow lake-effect snow bands that can produce significant localized snowfall.[2] Whiteout conditions will affect narrow corridors from shores to inland...

Warner Bros. has just announced a fourth film in the Matrix series, with original stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss set to reprise their iconic roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively. Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct the sequel. The news comes after rumors earlier this year from John Wick: Chapter 3 director Chad Stahelski that the Wachowski sisters were working on a new installment in the franchise. But rumors about a new Matrix film have been swirling practically since the third installment — The Matrix Revolutions — was released in 2003. That said, it appears that only Lana Wachowski is returning for the upcoming film, with her sister Lilly (who co-directed and co-wrote the original three films) absent from the announcement. Instead, screenwriters Aleksandar Hemon...

Facebook's business is booming, thanks to worldwide shelter-in-place and quarantine orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic that have everyone using social networks and staring at screens far more than average. The company, which reported first quarter earnings for 2020 on Wednesday, says "a record number of people" are using its services, primarily its Messenger and WhatsApp chat apps as well as Instagram. Last month, as the pandemic intensified, Facebook said it was seeing spikes of more than 50 percent on its messaging products and now logs about 700 million daily calls across Messenger and WhatsApp. But the company knows its popularity is likely only temporary. And those products that are seeing spikes are not the ones Facebook can most easily monetize, as analytics chief Alex Schultz and...

Disney's landmark purchase of 20th Century Fox last year is complete, and now the company is looking to phase out the "Fox" branding in its new assets: the 20th Century Fox film studio is being rebranded to just "20th Century Studios," and Fox Searchlight Pictures is now "Searchlight Pictures," according to a report from Variety. The move away from the Fox brand isn't entirely surprising, given that Fox Corporation the remaining piece of the original Fox brand still exists and runs things like Fox News, Fox Sports, and the Fox TV channel that weren't sold to Disney. Removing the "Fox" from the studios and film divisions that Disney does own will presumably make things in the entertainment world a little clearer. (The fact that Fox News, in particular, is a politically contentious brand...
