Aug 19 • iOS 13 and iPadOS: How to join the beta, use the best new features on your iPhone and iPad 31 46 Photos More split-screen apps and easy-glance widgets, but with limitsMultitasking on an iPad looks to be better, thanks to apps now having multiple windows open at once. In theory, Google Docs could allow two windows, if Google Docs chooses to update its iPadOS app. But the number of windows, or split-pane apps, is still limited by the iPadOS design. It’s still two panes or apps at once, plus a hovering extra pane on top of that (Side View).Widgets can be pushed onto the home screen now, something I’ve wanted for a while. The grid of apps get moved aside a bit to allow for them. Why not allow a full home screen to be customized, though? I’d prefer the grid of apps to be pushed out of sight completely. Do what the Apple Watch does: Have them appear with a gesture or a button. Or search for apps instead, which is what I do most of the time. WWDC 2019 Jul 5 • RIP, iTunes. This is what happens to your Apple music now Tags Share your voice 1:26 iPadOS adds some key features, including multiple windows in the same app. Scott Stein/CNET I’d love to take an iPad around as my main work machine. I’ve come close. But I haven’t crossed over. The 11-inch iPad Pro is a fantastic piece of hardware. The limits? The software.Apple’s newly renamed iPadOS is a commitment to the iPad platform as a distinct thing from iOS on the iPhone. But it’s already been that way: Many key iPad features aren’t on the iPhone. With iPadOS, the distance between the two is growing. The iPad’s getting some serious tools that will let it handle some of my biggest work needs.”iPad is a growing platform again, which is pretty awesome,” Apple’s Greg Joswiak, said of the iPad platform right now. Craig Federighi told CNET, “It’s become a truly distinct experience.”And yet, it’s not entirely made the moves I expected.Browsing in Safari in iPadOS promises to finally allow Google Docs to work properly. Scott Stein/CNET Desktop-class browser: Is it a Chromebook now?A full page of Google Docs, menus and markups and everything intact is what I’d expect. Working in my company’s CMS to file a story is important. I haven’t been able to do this well on an iPad before, but Safari promises, at last, that web pages will look like real web pages.This isn’t magic: Chromebooks and Chrome tablets do it. Windows tablets do it. It’s time for Apple to do it, too. This was one of the biggest things holding back the iPad for me. I can’t wait to seriously give it a try.But, to be clear, this still means I’d need to touch icons. Apple’s solution for places where a mouse or trackpad “hovers” is to tap on an icon on the iPad, which will bring up a menu. Then you’ll tap on it again. What if a menu is long, and needs to be scrolled through? Will it be easy? That remains to be seen. The iPadOS public beta in July will be the first great test run, and I can’t wait to see how well it works.Multi-touch gestures for editing: Will they make me forget a mouse?There are some new pinching finger gestures in iPadOS that are made to help text editing feel better. In a document, you’d pinch some text to copy, and unpinch somewhere else to paste. Seeing these in action, they almost seemed like gestures I’d do with a HoloLens AR headset. On a tablet, will they feel intuitive, or weird?Apple doesn’t support a trackpad or a mouse in iPadOS yet, even though mouse support can be set up for basic clicking under Accessibility features. But Apple insists on fingers (and a Pencil) as the key editing tools for now. iPadOS is making a bet that I won’t miss a mouse or trackpad. I bet I will.And there’s another problem with the odd gestures in iPadOS: as CNET’s Stephen Shankland said to me in a conversation, they feel like “incantatory gestures.” You have to know the special moves to pull them off. Comments WWDC 2019: A quick visual recap of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference keynote • Jun 30 • iOS 13 and iPadOS public betas: How to download and install them now Everything Apple announced from its WWDC 2019 keynote reading • iPadOS makes Apple’s tablet (almost) the computer I need See All Jun 14 • Apple Music vs. Apple Podcast vs. Apple TV: What’s the difference? WWDC 2019 Mouse and trackpad support: Clearly the next stepWhat I really want? I’ve stated it months ago: An iPad that will let me easily edit and control things with a trackpad. A full laptop-like experience, like what I can do on a Google Chromebook or a Microsoft Surface. The iPad is not far from this idea. But there’s no official way to use a trackpad in 2019.Unless, that is, I choose to enable the iPadOS accessibility mouse support, which is clearly not going to satisfy my needs. That feature is intended to help people who can’t use the touch feature easily. The mouse cursor is a big fat circle, not a small pointer. It only works as a single-click tool. And yet it shows that iPadOS can support a mouse, if Apple only worked that support into all apps and features at an OS-wide level. I don’t want just a basic mouse, though: I want a trackpad with multi-touch gestures. I want what a MacBook has. So, Scott, you want a MacBook, not an iPad, you say. No, I want both. Apple needs to solve for both problems in one device. And that’s not an unreasonable request. In fact, it seems like an inevitability. With Apple’s ARM-based processors becoming more powerful, USB-C in iPads, Macs getting iPad apps, and iPads acting as plug-in touchscreens for Macs using Sidecar, the overlaps are already everywhere.

Minor kidnapped and molested in Assam. Representational image.Getty ImagesIn yet another shocking incident, a minor girl in Hailakandi district of Assam was kidnapped and molested by two men. The incident was recorded on camera.A video has come out that shows a man molesting a girl, while another person recorded it on camera. According to reports, the 14-year-old girl was abducted by two men while she was on her way back from a Madrassa.The two men, who are reportedly known to the girl, allegedly took her to a deserted area, and molested her. The girl in the video can be seen screaming and trying to fight back, but the culprit refuses to let her go. He is even seen laughing on the camera while committing the heinous crime.The girl’s family has reportedly filed a case against the two men – identified as Ashique Uddin Majumdar and Rafiq Uddin Majumdar. The police are searching for the culprits but no arrests were made till this story was filed.A few days ago, another similar incident was reported from Hojai district of Assam where a minor was raped by five men, and the crime was recorded on camera. The video had gone viral on Whatsapp. While the victim did not tell anyone about the incident, a case was filed after her family came to know about the video. Soon after the FIR, police took action, and nabbed the culprits.
Killing people in the name “gau bhakti” is not acceptable, prime minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday.”As a society, there is no place for violence,” he said in a speech at the Sabarmati Ashram here.”Killing people in the name of ‘gau bhakti’ (cow worship) is not acceptable,” he said. “This is not something Mahatma Gandhi would approve.”

Additional charges may be added, authorities say. Juárez was taken into custody shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday after leading law enforcement on a high-speed car chase.CREDIT DALLAS COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT VIA APArmando JuarezHe’s being held at the Dallas County jail on a bond in excess of $1 million.Officers had spent several hours searching for Juárez after he had apparently fled the scene in a white truck, Hall said in a news conference Tuesday night.Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, an off-duty Dallas police officer was at the Home Depot along Forest Central Drive, near the intersection of Forest Lane and U.S. Highway 75. Police officials say the officer detained Juárez and requested additional officers for assistance. After they arrived, Juárez fired a handgun, striking the two responding officers and the store employee.“We need you right now,” Hall said at the Tuesday night news conference. “Our hearts are very heavy.”Rawlings, who joined Hall at the news conference, said it is sobering to realize how quickly police officers can become victims.“I continue to be upset at the lack of respect of our police in this city and in our country,” he said.In 2016, four Dallas police officers and a transit officer were shot dead by a sniper in an ambush that came toward the end of a peaceful protest over the police killings of black men that had occurred in other cities.After a lengthy car chase, the suspect related to today’s shooting is in custody. Now, prayers are needed for the two officers fighting for their lives!— Dallas Air One (@DPDAir1) April 25, 2018 Our thoughts and prayers are with @DallasPD and the two officers shot and critically wounded.

He asked for continued prayers for her recovery and a moment of silence for Santander.Scott Painter, a loss-prevention officer for Home Depot who was also shot Tuesday, remains in critical condition. All three wounded underwent surgery for their injuries at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. In a brief update outside the hospital Wednesday morning, Dallas Police Chief U.

For the first time, Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition of virtual reality leader Oculus VR, is starting to bear fruit.The social network has announced that 360-degree videos are now viewable on news feeds. While Facebook led development for 360-degree capability, the team collaborated with its Oculus division in order to create Facebook’s first consumer-facing VR product, the company’s chief product officer, Chris Cox, told The Verge.If you’ve never experienced 360-degree video before, prepare to be blown away. On desktops, the technology allows users to click and drag around a scene in order to see things from every angle. But on mobile (the update is only available for Android devices thus far), the experience is even more seamlessly immersive, as scenery changes in accordance with how users position their phones in space.Facebook is rolling out the technology with a handful of publishing partners including Saturday Night Live, Vice and Star Wars — which even released a brand new scene from the upcoming The Force Awakens film to mark the occasion. See for yourself right here: Related: With an Empathy Button, Facebook Will Be Even More Valuable to AdvertisersWhile anyone can upload 360-degree videos to Facebook, the cameras required to shoot this kind of footage will still set you back a pretty penny.“In the future, imagine watching 360 videos of a friend’s vacation to a small village in France or a festival in Brazil,” writes Facebook’s engineering director of video, Maher Saba, of potential future uses as the technology becomes more mainstream. “You’ll be able to look around and experience it as if you were there.”Facebook isn’t the first platform to foray into 360-degree video. After announcing 360-degree support last March, YouTube recently said it would be adding 3-D capability into the mix.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has long been vocal about his enthusiasm for VR, and has said that devices like Oculus could become the next major computing platform after smartphones.“In the future we’ll probably still carry phones in our pockets,” he said in a Q&A last June, “but I think we’ll also have glasses on our faces that can help us out throughout the day and give us the ability to share our experiences with those we love in completely immersive and new ways that aren’t possible today.”Related: Facebook Just Gave Small Businesses a Bunch of New Tools Enroll Now for Free September 24, 2015 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 3 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
