iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

However, with t…

How to install Windows 10 Technical Preview Now

Prior to installation
There are a couple of caveats to keep in mind before doing anything:

Backup your data first! Not that you had no excuse not anyway, but make sure to back up your data before upgrading if you have something that can not be recovered. Or even if it does not. Just do a backup.You will not be able to use the recovery partition to downgrade. If you have a recovery partition on the system, which will no longer be able to restore your computer to the Windows version you had before.Recovery will support external Rollback. As is expected, since it has a recovery partition, you need a floppy or USB with Windows 8 (or more) on it to go back to how things were, if you do not like or can not use Windows 10.
Microsoft As mentioned several times, this is a pre-release software and is expected to be very buggy and crash-prone probably. It is not recommended that you install this on your computer at work or anything that needs daily use. We will show you how to install it on a sp…

How to stop the automatic loading programs in Windows 7 and Windows 8

There is no direct correlation between the programs that load at startup and processes slow down your PC six hours later. 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. On the other hand, the antivirus program has to ensure the PC constantly, so it is a legitimate auto…
