  • Facebook Rolls Out It's New Interface With Dark Mode by Subrata Maity

The new social network interface is now available to all users. In addition to a completely redesigned interface, a dark mode can now be activated. Almost a year after the appearance of the dark mode on the Messenger mobile application, and more recently on WhatsApp, Facebook is finally deploying the new version of its interface with dark mode for all users.

After much confusion and a brief delay, Google late on Friday launched its COVID-19 Information & Resources website. This dedicated experience is focused on providing education, prevention, and local resources. Last Friday, President Donald Trump revealed that “Google” was developing a coronavirus screening website. It quickly emerged that Google sister company Verily was the one responsible for an effort that incorporates a symptoms questionnaire, directions to drive through testing sites, and returns results.

A day later, Google did announce it was developing a nationwide website, but only to provide COVID-19 resources.

  • Android 11 Developer Preview 2 Released with the fully supports wireless ADB! by ᎮᏒᎥᏁፈᏋ

Anyone who's spent time tinkering with Android devices will be familiar with the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) system. This command line tool lets you communicate with your device from a computer, but it usually requires a cable. With the second Android 11 dev preview, Google has finally added a proper wireless option for ADB. ADB lets you perform basic actions like managing files and rebooting a device, but it can also go deeper with shell commands, advanced package management, and more. As with the standard wired ADB option, you'll have to venture into the Developer Options menu to activate wireless ADB. Once it's turned on, you can connect to a computer running ADB on the same WiFi network.
