Meet ‘ECOSIA’ – The Tree Planter Search Engine

Now a days everyone uses a search engine. The most popular without any doubt is Google.

However there are alternatives and I am intending to present you one of them: the Ecosia search engine.
“Ecosia is the search engine that plants trees with its ad revenue. Get the free browser extension and use Ecosia every time you search.”

They use their revenues to plant trees. Untill now, they have managed to plant over 5,5 million trees, with a new tree planted each 11 seconds. Their goal is to reach one billion planted trees by 2020. Ecosia has 2 million active users.

XBOX ONE GAME STREAMING COMES TO OCULUS RIFT IN DECEMBER

Oculus Rift owners will be able to stream Xbox One games to their headsets starting December 21.

Keeping in mind that all headsets are being sold in a bundle with an Xbox One controller, this seems like a logical step in Oculus’ and Microsoft’s collaboration and one further.

Even thought it seems heaven- sent, there is a catch. You’ll need a Windows 10 gaming PC in order to stream. I guess that we’ll have to wait and see if it manages to become a success for both companies.

ANONYMOUS – MESSAGE TO DONALD TRUMP

“Anonymous Message to Donald Trump

So what are you going to really do for the American people Donald Trump? Because right now, you should see yourself as the apprentice and learn from the mistakes of those before you. Will you protect the American people, protect their food, protect their security, their health, education, their human rights, their privacy, or are you just going to be like many others who could have made a great name for themselves.

Remember, your actions will show the people who you truly are deep down, and Anonymous will be only to eager to keep on the watch and expose anything we feel the people should be aware of.

We are Anonymous,
We are Legion,
We do not forgive,
We do not forget,
Expect us.”

HOW TO: CHECK OUT YOUR WINDOWS 10 PC’S COMPATIBILITY WITH VR

“It was earlier announced that all Windows 10 PCs will be compatible with Windows Holographic, a “mixed reality” experience that’ll let you immerse yourself in faraway lands.”
(Quoted text above comes from https://www.engadget.com/2016/08/16/windows-holographic-coming-to-all-windows-10-pcs-next-year/)

“While we still don’t know a lot about the application and all of its features, we can see that the requirements include a PC with 4GB of RAM, USB 3.0, DirectX 12, a CPU with 4 cores, 1GB of free storage and 1.5m x 2m of open space (you also have the option to add tracking sensors) to move around.”

Terry Myerson joins Intel CEO Brian Krzanich on stage at IDF to show Windows Holographic shell, coming to mainstream Windows 10 PCs and head-mounted displays in 2017.
Text source: Youtube video description

“In the latest test builds of Windows 10, Microsoft is now including a “Windows Holographic First Run” application that tests a machine to ensure it’s compatible. I’ve tested a variety of machines, and it appears that Microsoft’s minimum requirements are pretty basic:

4GB of RAM
USB 3.0 port
A graphics card with DirectX 12 support
4 CPU cores, including dual-core processors with hyperthreading”

Microsoft is planning to detail more about its VR headsets for Windows 10 at an event in December.

TIP: 3 TEXT EDITORS TO USE WHILE CODING

3. NOTEPAD
Notepad is the easiest-to-use text editor and the best thing about it it’s that is available on Windows OSes. You can write any code you want, but it does not have a compilator, which is needed for debugging and compiling programs.

2. VISUAL STUDIO CODE
Visual Studio Code  is a neat text-editor that has more fratures than Notepad – such as different colors on tags and syntax and more functionality like creating a git, for exemple. Also available for MacOS users.

1. NOTEPAD++
P
rehaps laking a couple of functions found in Visual Stuio Code, Notepad++ is probably far more popular to users worldwide. Even here, the tags and syntaxes have their own color, which is nice, specially if you wanna to distuinguish one from another. Comes aswell with add-ons.
