Microsoft Edge gets a new PDF and a PiP mode

Published

on

Using browser-based PDF readers like Edge has advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, it is true that we do not need to install any additional applications. But not everything is perfect. One of the problems is that sometimes we have to resume reading documents from exactly where we left off, and this is not possible in browsers. Or at least it wasn’t. Is that Microsoft has started making this feature gradually available to Edge Canary and Dev version users.

Microsoft Edge gets a new PDF and a PiP mode

This new feature allows us to continue reading from the very moment we left off. However, it is not immediately turned on by default. Therefore, manual intervention is required to start using it.

To enable this feature we need to go to Settings, Cookies and Site Permissions and PDF Documents. Then we simply activate the function for PDF documents.

The ability to continue reading a PDF where we left off was one of the most requested features. For many, that was what kept them from always using the browser’s PDF reader.

Although it is already available, those who are on the “normal” version of the Edge will still not get this feature. This is because, as mentioned earlier, it’s only limited to the Dev and Canary versions for now. However, it will soon reach everyone.

However, this isn’t the only new feature in the latest version. So Microsoft added a new picture-in-picture button. So if you use Edge 93 or higher, you can see a small PiP button when you move the mouse over a video. When we click on it, we will see the video this way.

In contrast to the PDF-related function, this button is activated by default. So you don’t have to activate it in the settings.

Gmail just got a free upgrade! Already found?

Published

Many thought that due to all of the communication platforms we currently have, emails were going to end. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. E-mail continues and with it platforms such as Gmail. In fact, it is one of the most powerful email systems out there. It’s not all perfect, however, despite the fact that Google is constantly striving to improve what doesn’t work well. By the way, behold, Gmail was eligible for a free upgrade that saved us from serious errors!

Gmail just got a free upgrade! Already found?

When we send an email without the promised attachment, it can be quite annoying, much worse than sending a message with sensitive content to the wrong person. Especially when it’s a colleague. Such mistakes can be embarrassing, but they can also cost the company we work for, especially if we make a mistake and inadvertently share personal information with a third party.

It’s true that we have broadcasts on some platforms, including Gmail. However, this doesn’t always work.

Now, Gmail is going to implement a few ways to keep us from being too fooled about sending emails to multiple people at the same time. For example, if we now add someone to the recipient list, their email addresses or names will also appear with their profile pictures. That way, we can see who we’ve added instantly and more visually.

In the meantime, the people we have already added will be flagged for whom there is no way to send the message to the same person twice.

But there is more news. It is possible to have a special name for people in our bucket list and those are the names that other people will see. In other words, it’s a way of masking the real names.

In addition to what I mentioned, those who use Gmail at work have even more advantages. This is because people outside of the company are flagged so that work information is not sent to outside people. At least by mistake.

These messages are already reaching all users.

Remember, the Gmail app is available to those who use it on mobile devices on Load game and further Appstore.

Fuels: what is the difference between simple and additive?

Published

By

Well, a few days ago, on the subject of the energy crisis that is raging across Europe and one of the nightmares of the vast majority of Portuguese motorists, That’s how high the taxes on gasoline and diesel are … We have written an article that explains what “cheap” fuel really is and what the difference is between a low-cost petrol station and a “branded” supply network.

With all of that said, today we’re going to try to explain the difference between a simple fuel and an additive fuel. Is it worth paying more?

Fuel crisis: what is the difference between simple and additive?

In case you didn’t already know, a few years ago the national fuel networks were forced to make basic fuels available at their filling stations. That is, fuels with a smaller amount of additives.

Smaller number, but still compliant with the standards EN 590 (diesel) and EN 228 (petrol) required by automobile manufacturers.

What is an additive fuel?

It is the most expensive version of the fuel at any gas station, called Evologic at Galp, Neotech at Repsol and Ultimate at BP.

In short, every brand has its marketing name. But in a very curious way today there are even the “cheap” petrol stations with additional fuel, as is the case with Prio with its TOP 95.

Do simple or “cheap” fuels have additives?

Yes indeed! However, only in small quantities in order to meet the above standards.

What is the difference?

The premise is the same for all brands!

Premium fuels promise more kilometers per tank and fewer maintenance problems. All due to the fact that they leave the deposit cleaner.

Interestingly, they also promise less polluting gases etc … Is it true? Well, none of the gas stations share the amount of additives they add to their premium fuel, and according to many studies it is “all equal to the liter”.

What is an additive?

In a very simple way, these are products with the aim of cleaning the tank, valves and injectors, improving combustion, lubricating the injection system, etc. These products are added to the fuel that you put in your car.

It is worth it?

Difficult question and even more complicated answer.

There is no study that unequivocally demonstrates the benefits of this type of fuel. However, when additives are present the fuel is actually of higher quality. If that makes a difference in the number of KM and the long-term maintenance of your car … Nobody knows!

One thing is certain when premium fuel actually helps keep the engine clean and produces better combustion. On the other side of the barricade, regular fuel won’t pollute the engine. All in all, premium fuel isn’t going to help your car perform better or produce more horsepower, either.

The myth!

Interestingly, there are a number of myths that motorists, mechanics, gas station workers themselves, etc. quickly put on when the engine light came on. Do not believe this dramatic story.

diploma

Since it is impossible to know the amount of additives that each brand is adding to their premium fuels, it pays “premium” prices for “premium” fuels that actually have no idea what they contain. In other words, you have no idea what you are putting in your car’s tank, you are just tracking each brand’s marketing.

For some enthusiasts, the easiest and most beneficial is to use simple fuel and then add additives at home. There’s a lot of variety in the market for multiple brands, many with quality. This will keep your car’s combustion system clean and, of course, know what you are really putting in your car’s tank.

MacBook Air 2022: Innovative display at a lower price?

Published

By

As we previously reported, Apple will be implementing the mini-LED technology that brings the screen of the new MacBook Pro 2021 to life on the upcoming MacBook Airs! Laptops that should be the brand’s big news for 2022.

So this is probably the cheapest way to get the technology. With the cheapest MacBook Pro starting at € 2349 in 2021 … a prohibitive price tag for the vast majority of consumers interested in Apple’s new products.

Don’t expect super cheap ‘Air’ though. That’s not Apple’s plan for its line of notebooks.

MacBook Air 2022: Innovative display at a lower price?

So the 2022 MacBook Air could really be the “budget” version of what Apple wants to offer the market with its new MacBooks. However, it seems that the screen size will not change and stay at 13.3 inches, and of course it is also very likely that Pro Motion (120 Hz) will remain an exclusive feature of the MacBook Pro.

In addition to the mini LED display, the MacBook Air 2022 will probably also be equipped with the famous “Notch” and a completely redesigned design in order to adapt the notebook more to the brand’s latest design philosophy. .

Instead of last year’s SoC M1 or the latest M1 Pro or M1 Max, the ‘Air’ can of course count on the new M2, the real successor to the ARM processor so conjured up last year.

Issue and Price?

As far as we know, production of this notebook will not begin until the third quarter of next year. In other words, the market launch will most likely take place shortly before Christmas 2022, at a time when the production crisis should already be at least partially over.

In relation to the price, however, the current MacBook Air M1 from Apple costs 1159 euros. A reasonable price considering the notebook and of course the price development of the brand. However, I expect a very significant price increase in 2022 to make room for a notebook that is better in every respect.

Although it is cheaper and the best way is to have a mini LED screen on your laptop. There is no way they expect to have a really affordable MacBook joining Apple’s ranks next year.
