iPhone SE slowed down sales of smartphones in Europe

The smartphone market scenario in Europe has fluctuated abnormally in recent years. There were several reasons, and problems seem to accumulate as the first one is resolved, albeit temporarily.

This scenario is present again and very clearly, with the latest data on smartphone sales in Europe. In the second quarter of 2022, sales will fall again, and possibly even recover. However, there is a positive element to this very negative scenario.


Sales in Europe continue to fall

The second quarter of 2022 once again showed a very large decline in the smartphone market in Europe. You extended dataCounterpoint Research shows that sales have again slowed compared to last year and even the previous quarter.

From what was promoted, sales fell by 11% compared to the same quarter of the previous year, which, of course, was not to be expected or desired. Looking at the previous quarter, the scenario is even worse, with sales hitting 40.3 million units, representing a 13% drop.

Smartphone brands with different scenarios

At first glance, Samsung and Apple performed well this quarter. Its market share increased compared to the same period last year. However, both brands posted sharp declines compared to the first quarter of this year.

The main reason for this scenario was the departure of these brands from Russia, an important market due to its weight. If in the case of Samsung there was no counterbalance, then Apple already had the good performance of the iPhone SE (2022), which compensated for the losses of other models.

Russia is largely to blame for this scenario.

In the rest of the table, we had Xiaomi, Oppo and Realme, all with different scenarios. Xiaomi was able to take advantage of the Russian scenario to offset and mitigate its losses. OPPO, on the other hand, lost ground due to factory problems, while Realme managed to grow by double digits in a year.

This is certainly not the desired and expected scenario for Europe in the field of smartphones. The causes are known, but they seem to recur and there is no sign of long-term improvement.

After the confusion, DuckDuckGo started blocking Microsoft scripts

Published

DuckDuckGo Microsoft scripts rastreamento privacidade

DuckDuckGo is one of the most secure search engines that guarantees users maximum privacy. This has been its flag for many years, thanks to which it was able to lure users from Google to Microsoft’s Bing.

Despite all guarantees of safety and protection, DuckDuckGo has been involved in a controversy that has now decided to put an end to it. It has now expanded its protection and has also begun blocking all of the tracking scripts that Microsoft uses on its websites.


Let's get even more privacy on DuckDuckGo

Even though DuckDuckGo promises users maximum user privacy and security, so far it has had some limitations in what it gives users. In fact, he did not take the promised measures and allowed some users to be followed.

It was discovered and opened to the world, explaining how Microsoft scripts are resolved. Of course, this was not known to users and allowed the software giant to monitor without any restrictions or control.

Microsoft scripts are also blocked

It ends now like DuckDuckGo disclosed, as well as Microsoft scripts are blocked in search results. In this seemingly simple way, users are once again protected when using this privacy-focused search engine.

This change is promised this week, and mobile apps and browser extensions will get access first. After that, next month it will be applied to the remaining applications and to all items that are not yet available.

Not all tracking information will be filtered

In fact, contrary to what DuckDuckGo just showed, not all scripts will be blocked. It turned out that thanks to the use of advertising on their platform, which is carried out in partnership with Microsoft, advertisers still want to know about the success of clicks on ads. So the relevant Microsoft scenarios will be allowed.

This is an important change that provides greater privacy for DuckDuckGo users. After filtering out everything sent by Google, Facebook and other services, it now accumulates Microsoft and the collection of information that it did with its tracking scripts.

Mathematical trick discovered that could revolutionize landings on the Moon and Mars

Published

Space travel is a complex, confusing and dangerous topic. There are many variables that can turn a mission into a disaster. From launch to landing, everything must be very well planned, studied and simulated. Photographs taken by probes and robots can help, but they are far from the necessary information. However, all this may change with the advent of a new method of photomapping. A math trick will help you land safely on the Moon, Mars, and any other planet.

Landform mapping on our natural satellite is of great interest and importance for future human missions.

Photo mapping creates high-resolution surface maps

Researchers have discovered a method for creating high-resolution maps of the surfaces of planets such as the Moon by combining available images and topographic data.

Mapping the complex and varied surface of a world like the Moon at detailed resolution is challenging because laser altimeters, which measure changes in altitude, operate at a much lower resolution than cameras. And although photographs give a sense of surface features, it is difficult to translate images into a specific height and depth.

However, the new method combines topographic data with the degree of sunlight shading in optical images to provide a much more accurate assessment of fill shapes and structures. In the future, the development could help both astronauts and research robots.

The new method was developed by Iris Fernandes, a former PhD student at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Lots of missions, lots of photos, but... lacks mathematical rigor

Different missions provide data at very different resolutions, so combining different data sources with different resolutions is a huge mathematical problem. Iris Fernandez and her then supervisor, geophysicist Klaus Mosegaard, did differently, as they focused on the mathematics of the problem, reducing the problem of determining whether an equation could solve the problem.

So it was. It can be said that my supervisor, Professor Klaus Mosegaard, and I have found the mathematical key to a door that has remained closed for many years.

Iris Fernandez mentioned in a statement about his discovery, published on the website university.

It should also be noted that the new approach also requires much less computing power and is much faster than previous methods, according to the researchers.

The moon was the first target of exploration

Researchers have demonstrated the technique on the moon. These combined high-resolution images from NASA's LROC camera Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter with lower resolution spacecraft data Lunar orbiter laser altimeter (LOLA), the authors of the article claim to have increased the resolution of the topography from about 60 meters per pixel to 0.9 meters per pixel.

In this follow-up, the authors of the study noted that this method can be applied to extract accurate topographic information about rocks on planetary bodies such as the Moon, Mars, asteroids, and any other worlds for which topographic data is available.

This method can be used to solve a number of different problems, including determining the safety of astronauts and rovers or detecting geological points of interest, and can be applied to images from satellites, rovers, or other spacecraft.

The progress of the investigation is described in an article published on June 8 in the journal Planetary and space science.

Marco’s high school students made costumes for the Artamega show

Published

on

Year 10 students of the Escola Secundária do Marco Professional Course in Fashion Design participated in the design of the costumes for the Artâmega – Marco de Canaveses Arts Conservatory show “Perhaps in the Heart”, filmed on stage at Sala Suggia, at Casa da Música, in Porto, July 9, 2022.

In a production technology class led by teacher Tanya Fernandez, more than 80 costumes were designed and made to match the characters from the various stories featured in the play.

The students made drawings that were transferred to the molds used to mark, cut and shape the fabric into pieces during the sewing process. “The teacher and students showed great dedication and effort, working tirelessly to complete all the work within the deadline”specifies an ad.

Artamega thanked “The opening and availability of the professional design and fashion course at Escola Secundária do Marco to participate in this wonderful project presented at Casa da Música, highlighting the importance of synergy, in this case between schools that are in the same space”ends.
