Samsung launches the world’s first 5G smartphone
In Germany, we are just polishing the milk cans, to which 5G (a distant day) could once penetrate. Samsung is already a step ahead in South Korea. Since 1 December, the 5G network is in operation. Now it’s time for the first 5G smartphone. Samsung launches the Galaxy S10 5G next Friday, claiming the status of “the world’s first 5G smartphone on the market”.
The S10 5G celebrates its premiere in three colors: Majestic Black, Royal Gold and Crown Silver. The display is a 6.7 inch AMOLED screen, edge to edge. The rollout is coming in other countries.
But not in the LTE country of milk churns.
Nana Mouskouri throws Germany off the hook
She really cares about everything: The living room decorates her with “White Roses from Athens”. And now, the German Alexa owners are still preferred to throw them out of bed in the morning:
The Greek singer Nana Mouskouri (the lady with the black glasses and the flowing robes) is with her classic “Good morning sunshine” at number 1 of the songs, with which German Alexa owners love to wake up. “In my Mind” by Dynoro and Gigi D ‘Agostino follows in second place, followed by “Birdsong in the Forest” by Pandia Corpus. Only at number 4: the inevitable Helene Fischer with “Breathless through the night”.
By the way: With our Brexit friends, Wham is in first place with “Wake me up before you gogo” (before you gogo from the EU?) In France, Spain and Italy the preferred wake up call via Alexa is made with “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen Mamma Mia, Mum Mia, let me sleep.
Metaverse instead of Universe: Fortnite should become a social world
250 million active players count the cult game Fortnite. The new creative mode has been used by 100 million gamers since the launch in December. Reason enough for Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney to outline the future of the game of chance. Talking to BusinessInsider, he dreams of a “meta-verse where gamers can switch from Fortnite games to Fortnite buildings and then to the development of the Unreal Engine.” Fortnite should become a virtual social world.
Unreal Engine, the popular game development platform, belongs to the Fortnite makers. Sweeney continues: “There is no such thing at the moment, but we’ll see if it’s coming this year – it’s exciting.”

Real: Steal passwords by analyzing keystroke analysis on the keyboard
The possibilities of overriding the security of private data of users are becoming more and more perfidious. Researchers at the University of California have now demonstrated this, Heise reports. Using a standard thermal imager, the keyboard was photographed after typing in a password. Result: Imprints are still visible up to 60 seconds after typing.
Also possible: Password entries can be recorded by micro. From the recorded keyboard noises, the researchers were able to filter out the order of the keystrokes and thus form the password.
Curious, but unexplainable by the scientists: they were particularly successful at recognizing passwords on keyboards from Logitech.
