IPhone 8: What We Know So Far

Apple is reportedly reinventing the iPhone's fingerprint reader

Future iPhones may revolve around more than just an eye-catching curved display. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who frequently (though not always) has a knack for hardware scoops, believes that Apple is designing a whole new Touch ID fingerprint reader for future iPhones and iPads. In order for Apple to virtually eliminate bezels, it needs a reader that sits under the screen -- and that means a brand new optical sensor. Development is underway, the analyst says, but development is still early enough that the technology might not be ready in time for the 2017 iPhone.

Nokia tablet running Android Nougat 7.1

This year marks the return of Nokia to the Android world and it was warmly received, with the Chinese variation of the Nokia 6 selling out in just one minute after its January 19th launch. Joining Nokia's Android-device lineup appears to be a huge 18.4-inch tablet running Android 7.0 Nougat that was spotted after being benchmarked on GFXBench.
The operating system is listed as "Android FIH Edition" with FIH Mobile being the company that has the rights to the Nokia brand. This would largely indicate that the device - if it ever sees the light of day - will be Nokia branded.

How to view and delete your Google search history?

Whenever you make a Google search query while being logged in to any service from the company, your search is saved to your Google account’s activity. This is designed to help improve your search experience by increasing the amount of relevant things you’ll see.

For the most part, this depends on how you use your Google account, and if you’re more of an iOS user, then you might not tap into these features as much as, say, an Android user would.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to view and delete your Google search query history, a step you can take to increase your privacy by preventing others from seeing what you’ve searched for.

When will Google remember my search query history?

It should be mentioned from the start that Google won’t remember what you’ve searched for unless you are signed in with a Google account. If you aren’t, then there will be no search query history to look back on.
On the other hand, if you are signed in with a Google account, your search queries are stored inside of the My Activity section of your Google account, which is essentially a timeline of everything you’ve done via your account.
This is where this tutorial comes in…
If you are signed in with an account, and you recently searched for something that you don’t want others to see, whether it’s because you were doing gift shopping or wanted to ask the internet an embarrassing question that you don’t want other computer users to see, then you’ll need to know how to view and remove those history items.

How to view your Google search history

To view a running history of your Google search queries, you can follow these steps:
1) Sign into Google if you haven’t already by visiting the Google web page.
2) Click on the circular Profile button at the top right of the page, then click on the blue My Account button.

3) Scroll down slightly, and click on the blue Manage your Google Activity link.

4) Scroll down some more and under the Review activitysection, click on the blue Go to My Activity link.

Now you’ll see a timeline of everything you’ve done with your Google account. This of course includes your search history, but also the YouTube videos you watched and much more. As you can see, here we have a running history of Google search queries:

Deleting Google search query history items in bulk

Now that you’ve found your Google search query history, you can easily clear that in bulk from your activity page by following one of the three sets of tips below. Keep in mind that after you delete something, there is no way to get it back.
Deleting small groups of Google search query items
To delete small groups of search query items, scroll through the timeline and pick a group you want to delete, then follow these steps:
1) Click on the Menu button in the header section of a timeline item containing the queries you want to delete.

2) Click on the Delete button that appears in the pop-up menu.
3) You may get the following prompt; choose to check or un-check the box based on your own will, then click the OKbutton.

4) Confirm your Google search query deletion by clicking on the Delete button in the prompt:

Now all of the Google search queries that were in that section should be removed from your Google account, and as such, they will no longer appear in bold black text inside the search bar when you begin to use Google some more to search for more things on the internet.
Deleting Google search history items based on a date range
If you want to delete all history items that appear in your account history for a specific date range, you can use these steps instead:
1) Click on the Menu button at the very top of the web page.
2) Click on the Delete activity by option in the drop-down menu.

3) Choose a date range and the type of product you want to delete the history of. In our case, we must select Searchunder the All Products drop down menu. If you want to delete your entire Google history regardless of the product, just keep All products selected in the drop down. Click on the blue Delete button:

Now anything that was searched for in between these date ranges will be deleted from your Google account activity history.
Deleting all Google search query items
To delete absolutely everything from your Google search query timeline, follow these steps:
1) Click on the Menu button at the top of the web page.

2) Click on the Delete activity by option in the drop-down menu.
3) Click on the Today option and change it to All time from the drop-down menu:

4) Next, click on the Delete button at the bottom of the page:

5) You will be asked to confirm your action, so click on the Delete button when prompted for a second time
And now all of your data from your Google search query history should be removed!

Deleting Google search query history items singularly

If you just searched for one thing, and you really don’t want to go through all the steps above to delete just one search query, you’ll be happy to know Google has you covered.
If you simply go to the Google search bar at the top of a Google search page and you begin the search a second time, you’ll see your query appear in bold purple color, which indicates you’ve searched for it recently. Just to the right of that is a Remove button; click it:

After you click on the Remove button, your search query is removed from your Web search history

Now that you know how to remove searches from your Google search query history, you can keep family members from knowing what you’re Googling as gift ideas, or however else you plan to use this feature.

WhatsApp's notifications now work properly on Android 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat Rita El Khoury 14 hours ago 21 100 62 Total Shares183 APPLICATIONSNEWSNOUGAT 7.0/7.1 WhatsApp Nougat users, the time has come, the day is here — well, it was here a couple of days ago, but it was the weekend and I was busy sweeping the floors of my new apartment, so I had to delay coverage... priorities y'know. Anyway, for all of you who have been lamenting the poor notification situation on Nougat, cried over the fact that you only see the most recent message making the whole "notification" thing completely useless, things are looking out. In version 2.17.13 beta (grab it from APK Mirror), WhatsApp has properly implemented notifications on Android 7.0 and 7.1 Nougat devices. This involves showing all the messages from one conversation (person or group) and not just the latest message, proper Quick Reply with your typed text not disappearing when you get a new message from the same conversation, and correct notification unbundling behavior of conversations and expansion of multiple messages. This also fixes the notifications you get on Android Wear devices, making them readable and better to reply to.

Android 7.0 Nougat kernel source released for Moto Z and Moto Z Droid

Last year, Motorola skipped on updating the Moto X line of devices, in favor of introducing the Moto Z. The device's main selling point was 'Moto Mods,' modules the user can hotswap to add functionality. Unfortunately, the expensive cost of both the device and the Moto Mods, as well as the lack of a headphone jack and short battery life,

If the stock Moto Z software experience isn't satisfying, you're in luck - Motorola has finally released the 7.0 kernel source code for the Moto Z and Moto Z Droid. If you're unfamiliar, this makes creating custom ROMs for the device significantly easier, so expect custom ROM development to pick up.
