UAE spacecraft enters Mars orbit in historic first for Arab world.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has successfully put a spacecraft in orbit around Mars in a major accomplishment for the Arab world and its first mission to another planet.

The UAE’s Amal spacecraft, which means “Hope” in Arabic, entered orbit around the Red Planet on Tuesday, some seven months after it first blasted off from Earth.

Ground crews in Dubai waited with nervous excitement as the spacecraft manoeuvred itself into Mars’ orbit, knowing that a mistake would likely lead to the loss of the pricey probe. The craft went through a tricky 27-minute cycle to enter orbit, and it took an additional 11 minutes for news of the success to beam back to Earth.

Huge news from Google, who announced today that they are going to stop using your web browsing behaviour to display targeted advertisements.
It’s difficult to conceive of the internet we know today — with information on every topic, in every language, at the fingertips of billions of people — without advertising as its economic foundation. But as our industry has strived to deliver relevant ads to consumers across the web, it has created a proliferation of individual user data across thousands of companies, typically gathered through third-party cookies. This has led to an erosion of trust: In fact, 72% of people feel that almost all of what they do online is being tracked by advertisers, technology firms or other companies, and 81% say that the potential risks they face because of data collection outweigh the benefits, according to a study by Pew Research Center. If digital advertising doesn’t evolve to address the growing concerns people have about their privacy and how their personal identity is being used, we risk the future of the free and open web.
That’s why last year Chrome announced its intent to remove support for third-party cookies, and why we’ve been working with the broader industry on the Privacy Sandbox to build innovations that protect anonymity while still delivering results for advertisers and publishers. Even so, we continue to get questions about whether Google will join others in the ad tech industry who plan to replace third-party cookies with alternative user-level identifiers. Today, we’re making explicit that once third-party cookies are phased out, we will not build alternate identifiers to track individuals as they browse across the web, nor will we use them in our products.​
This is a big step that will have massive consequences for the advertisement industry as a whole, but at the same time, companies do not just give up on revenue streams without having alternatives ready. My hunch would be that Google has become so big and collects data from so many other sources, that it simply doesn’t need your web browsing behaviour and third-party cookies to sell targeted ads effectively.

The Realme GT 5G is the world’s cheapest Snapdragon 888 phone
$430 for a Snapdragon 888, a 120 Hz OLED display, and speedy 65 W charging.

It's time for a yearly reminder of how much better the smartphone market is when you live in a hyper-competitive area like India or China. The new Realme GT 5G is now the world's cheapest Snapdragon 888 smartphone, sporting nearly everything you would expect from a ~$1,000 flagship smartphone, for the low price of CNY 2,799, or ~$433. Naturally, the phone is for sale only in China right now.

The specs here look fantastic for the price: a 120 Hz, 6.43-inch, 2400×1080 Samsung OLED panel; a Snapdragon 88 SoC; 8GB of RAM; 128GB of UFS; a 4500 mAh battery; 65 W wired fast charging; an under-screen fingerprint reader; NFC; a USB-C slot; and a headphone jack. There's also a higher-tier version with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for CNY 3,299, or ~$510. The OS is Android 11 with a "Realme UI 2.0" skin. If you really want to pick nits, there are some cut corners here, like the lack of wireless charging and water resistance. For $430, though, this is a spectacular package.

Apple has also phones in every price range nowadays and honestly they are all good however Apple has small market in terms of sold units worldwide. Android is dominating and if it wasn't for US bans, Huawei would have been number one.

South Korea's LG becomes first major smartphone brand to withdraw from market

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's LG Electronics Inc will wind down its loss-making mobile division after failing to find a buyer, a move that is set to make it the first major smartphone brand to completely withdraw from the market.

Its decision to pull out will leave its 10% share in North America, where it is the No. 3 brand, to be gobbled up by Samsung Electronics and Apple Inc with its domestic rival expected to have the edge.

"In the United States, LG has targeted mid-priced - if not ultra-low - models and that means Samsung, which has more mid-priced product lines than Apple, will be better able to attract LG users," said Ko Eui-young, an analyst at Hi Investment & Securities.


LG's smartphone division has logged nearly six years of losses totalling some $4.5 billion. Dropping out of the fiercely competitive sector would allow LG to focus on growth areas such as electric vehicle components, connected devices and smart homes, it said in a statement.

Guys i agree with Pooya and others apple is great and i love my i phone 11, there are i phones for everyone’s price range. Problem is android is more business friendly than IOs. If you are hust using it for personal use then an i phone is fine but if it is for business, i recommend an android.
