Google Pixel 4 leak: astrophotography mode is coming!

You’ll be able to capture ‘even the stars,’ says Google in a leaked marketing video.
The Pixel 4 may allow photography enthusiasts to do something they've never been able to do before with a smartphone camera: astrophotography. A seemingly official marketing video uploaded by Pro Android shows Google's newest smartphone will feature a dedicated mode for taking photos of the night sky. Unfortunately, the ad provides few details about how the new functionality will work other than to promise you'll be able to capture "even the stars." Based on the "hold still" prompt shown in the video, the one detail we can glean is that you won't need a tripod to use to take advantage of the feature.

Google's latest smart display brings with it a controversial new feature that's always watching.

Here's a look at how Google and other tech companies record, save, process and use facial recognition data collected by devices such as the Nest Hub Max, as well as s…

Many autoloaders (programs that load automatically at startup) do their thing and then it closes properly. And some programs that are manually loaded long after the licensing process start running even after closing them.

However, most Windows PCs too many programs load at boot time. These certainly slow down the boot process. Some remain in operation and can reduce Windows. And some may cause conflicts and instability, although that is rare.

So let's see how we can cut autoloaders.

The fact that you like a program does not necessarily mean that you want it to work all the time? For example, regular readers know how much I like KeePass. But I turned off the autoloader because I just do not see the point. A password manager simply run when a password is required.
